Band to show Shamrock pride

By Robert Herrington • robert@youarecurrent.com

The public is invited to send off Westfield High School’s Marching Band following the final performance of the high school’s musiEducation cal “Into the Woods” at 10 p.m. March 15. The Shamrock Pride will depart for a jam-packed, four-day trip to New York City, where it will march in the 253rd St. Patrick’s Day Parade. The parade will be streamed live at http://nycstpatricksparade.org. “It’s a fairly involved trip along with marching in the parade,” WHS Band Publicity Coordinator Jeri Schantz said. “I feel a lot of pride, very fitting being a Shamrock there in the St. Patrick’s Day Parade.” While there, students will take in the sights of The Big Apple, including Rockefeller Center, the 9-11 Memorial and a performance of “Wicked” on Broadway. “It will keep them pretty busy,” Schantz said. A tour group specializing in major school trips has helped plan the band’s itinerary, including a performance at the Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum Complex featuring the retired aircraft carrier, USS Intrepid. “There are a great variety of experiences to look forward to,” said Matthew Schantz, Jeri’s husband and parent chaperone. “Free time in Times Square, it’s a lot different than Westfield or Indianapolis. It’s a big experience for a lot of folks. They are playing on an aircraft carrier – there are people who have never seen an aircraft carrier at all.” Matthew previously attended a band trip to Saint Louis when their son, Eli, was a middle school student. “I’m really excited about it and looking forward to it,” he said. “I got to know his friends in their natural environment.” The Shamrock Pride takes a couple of trips every two years and alternates between big and smaller trips. “I’m glad he can take one or two like this,” Jeri said of her freshman son. “It may be his only opportunity for a big one in his high school time,” Matthew said. Students will miss three days of school and return in the early hours Thursday morning before heading to classes. “I took a similar trip when I was a senior in high

DVD review Set in New York City in the early 1960s, when the folk music scene that produced Bob Dylan was germinating, “Inside Llewyn Davis” is the story of somebody who never makes it. Llewyn (Oscar Isaac) is a sad sack and a lout who sponges off his friends for everything, even a place to sleep. But he’s a genuinely gifted singer – and so is Isaac, who skillfully and wistfully performs all his songs himself. Read more at currentnightandday.com.

Getting answers about Bariatric Surgery with St.Vincent. At the St.Vincent Bariatric Center of Excellence, we know that it’s natural to have a lot of questions about weight loss surgery before committing to a procedure. And Scott Nelson — a previous patient at our Bariatric Center of Excellence and one of the features in our TV spots — was no different. Scott came to us with questions like: What’s the best procedure for me? What can I expect after the surgery is over? And how will the surgery affect my diabetes?

H E A L T H

By attending one of the 11 weekly St.Vincent Carmel bariatric informational seminars and discussing these questions with his surgeon during a pre-op class, Scott got the answers he was looking for. “The pre-op class and information session were especially valuable to me because I had so many questions and fears about the procedure,”said Scott. “I also found that the doctors and specialists at St.Vincent were very knowledgeable, easy to talk to, and made me feel more confi dent about my upcoming surgery.”

Since surgery, Scott has lost more than 100 pounds. And as he continues to lose weight, he feels increasingly optimistic about his future. “The greatest thing about my surgery is how I’m just not carrying that extra weight anymore. I don’t get winded doing simple things like walking up stairs, and more importantly, I know I’ll be around for many years to come so that I can take care of my kids.”

911 dispatch office to expand By Robert Herrington • robert@youarecurrent.com The Hamilton County Council approved $421,553 for changes within the 911 Communications at its monthly meetGOvernment ing on March 5. Michael Snowden, executive director of communications, asked the council to approve a new position of training and assurance officer along with new dispatchers. “It’s one of the most important offices in our department,” Snowden said. “If it wasn’t important I wouldn’t be here in front of you.” Snowden said the department has 48 dispatchers and eight supervisors. He said before the county operated all of the 911 dispatch services there were 17 administrators at the three centers. Councilman Brad Beaver voiced his opposition to adding a new position, saying the department is “top heavy on administration.” “It’s getting way too heavy with chiefs,” he said. “It’s a big ol’ department with lots of supervisors.” The salary of the new positions is split between the state and county, which is then divided up among Hamilton County, Carmel, Fishers, Noblesville and Westfield budgets. Other appropriations approved by the council include:

• The council approved its half of the $400,000 matching amount as part of its interlocal agreement with the Town of Fishers. The agreement is for work on bridge No. 163, which is on Cumberland Road between 106th and 116th streets. Fishers had previously approved its $400,000 share of the project. • To begin development work of the 276th Street interchange between U.S. 31 and Glen Road, the council approved $488,100. President Rick McKinney said the county has received $3.5 million as part of an 80-20 (federal-county) grant. McKinney said the project is expected to begin in June 2016. • The winter storms and snow cost roughly $410,000 in overtime fees for the county. • Adult probation office received $5,000 for new computers. • A new uninterrupted power supply will cost the county $220,000. The county’s computer power room is being redesigned and reworked and the new UPS will replace the large and smaller ones there. The new unit will provide more regulated power throughout the day and a longer period when power is lost. The amount also includes 250 desktop computers and some laptops for county offices use.

A ‘once-in-a-lifetime’ project Commentary by John Green

As the City of Westfield’ Public Works director’s assistant, I really have an amazing opportunity to help create big grand park things for Westfield. I came to this position because of my previous work experience in site planning and major construction projects. I got to know Ken Alexander when we were working together on the Eskenazi Hosptial project in Indianapolis. When Ken became the public works director, he reached out to me to assist with the Grand Park project. It was an offer I couldn’t refuse, and officially began at the end of December. There were two major attractions that made me want to work on this project. The first is my love of site engineering and construction. My degree from Purdue is in construction engineering management and my previous work experience has allowed me to actually get to do what I went to school for. Every day I get to work with talented craftsmen to help create the largest sporting complex in the nation. What we are putting together here will be huge. I wanted to be a part of that. The second factor that really pushed me in this direction is that I am a Westfield resident and wanted to be able to work close to home and give something back to the community. Working right here in Westfield also allows me to spend more time with my wife of 10 years and my two children. It’s been wonderful. Just last week my

An aerial view of Grand Park. son said “I got to have breakfast, lunch and dinner with Daddy!” That comment makes it all worth it. While the winter weather has certainly presented us with some challenges getting Grand Park together, I’ve been impressed by the people I work with. I get to leverage their strengths in order to keep the project moving forward. The tradesmen and their hard work are making this effort possible. And, best of all, the people in the Westfield community are excited about what Grand Park will bring, which makes it easier to overlook sub-zero temperatures and 45 days of snow on the ground. Creating the Grand Park complex has really been an adventure. Sometimes it has felt like I was trying to drink from a fire hydrant, but every day I get to do what I love. This has been a oncein-a-lifetime experience. John Green is the of Westfield Public Works director’s assistant. He can be reached at jagreen@westfield. in.gov or 804-3100.

Students conquer economics lesson By Lauren Olsen • lauren@currentinwestfield.com Resumes hung on the walls, display boards were set and ready, and groups of students prepped for their presentaEducation tions, Maple Glen Elementary School’s second-graders were ready for the career fair to start. The fair is held annually to help the young students understand the challenging subject of economics. “This project brings value to what the students are doing and how it effects their college or career path which makes what they are learning more relevant,” said Karen Grogan, a secondgrade teacher at Maple Glen. “This project allows for so much growth.” The students start their projects at the end of January by researching the details of their given careers, such as education requirements, projected job growth and salaries. Then they meet with the other members of their group, usually three additional students to share what they learned during their research and work together to create a presentation with visual aids. “It’s a different dynamic in a team environment, for them to come together in a team, it’s not something they have done before,” said Grogan. “The main benefit of the fair is that it opens their eyes to more than the basic jobs they hear about, it opens a whole new world that they have not considered.” This year’s career fair featured 28 businesses,

among them was the Indiana Truthful Loan Officers. The students excitedly shared their newly acquired knowledge about loan officers with the first-graders, teachers and parents who attended the fair. “We learned that loan officers give money, I didn’t know they did that,” second grade student Makayla Kingdon said. “We never knew that a loan officer was a job.” “It was a fun project,” said Matthew Williams, a member of the Indiana Loan Officers team. In addition to the month of preparation for the career fair, the second-graders will be going to BoomBozz Pizza to learn about being a chef and what needs to be done to run a restaurant. They will also be going to Whole Foods to learn about running a grocery store and about product specialization.

McDonald’s decision moves ahead By Robert Herrington • robert@youarecurrent.com

Despite not having a “wow” factor the proposed McDonald’s restaurant at the northeast corner of Ind. 32 and Wheeler planning Road was approved by the Westfield Advisory Plan Commission – reluctantly. “We just wanted to have a landmark building, an iconic building, anywhere near Grand Park,” APC President Ken Kingshill said. “Westfield is turning into something we are all going to be proud of.” Despite having APC members challenge developers to “be unique in architectural design” with the new facility, Kingshill said the proposal meets the bare minimum. “As long as they comply we have to approve,” he said. “We were hoping for something better.” Kingshill said as part of the McDonald’s fran-

chise, the proposed designs are based on efficiency of production and service. “They had their reasons for it,” Kingshill said. “We want people to see it and remember it.” Westfield Associate Planner Andrew Murray said the building, which includes brick and cultured stone, has frontage on Ind. 32, Wheeler Road and Tournament Trail. The proposed 5,011 square-foot structure at 945 Tournament Trail includes a patio seating area located south of the structure. The property, which is approximately 1.1 acres, falls within the Ind. 32 Overlay Zone, which requires additional development and architectural standards to the underlying general business district. Murray said the standard as stated in the “32 Overlay” read: “Modulation of the roofs and/or roof lines shall be required in order to eliminate the appearance of box-shaped buildings.”

Meet your teacher, Nancy Cruse Grade/subject at what school: Second grade, Maple Glen Elementary Number of years teaching: 10 Background/Schooling (college & high school): Noblesville High School; B.S. elementary education, Ball State University; and M.A. education, Indiana Wesleyan University. Why did you become a teacher? I was influenced by many people in my life. Particularly, my second grade teacher, who went above and beyond to make me feel confident and able. My aunt, who taught in the Westfield Washington School District for many years, was a wonderful role model for me when I was growing up. I always wanted to help people in some capacity and teaching was my calling. What goals do you have for your students? My student’s know when they are in my class to believe in themselves. I have always encouraged them to believe “the sky is the limit”. They hold the key to their path of knowledge. I am just merely here to guide them along their journey. When we are engaging and learning, we are also having fun. At the end of the school year, they have reached their learning goals

and are truly proud of their accomplishments. What do you encourage parents to do at home to help their children strengthen particular skills? Enjoy all aspects of learning with your child. You can turn almost any moment into a teaching moment. Parent involvement is crucial for the home and school connection to be effective. You are your child’s first teacher. Be involved and embrace life lessons together. What is your favorite movie? “Pay it Forward” Who is your favorite musician or band? Too many to count! I do have a major soft spot for 80’s music and bands. What’s something your students might not know about you? My family started a foundation in memory of our son and daughter who passed away from a rare genetic disease. The money raised goes directly to Riley Children’s Hospital. We were the first family to have a patient room, in the Simon Tower, named in honor of our children.

For almost 49 years Ashpaugh Electric has been serving Westfield with a focus on God By Robert Herrington • robert@youarecurrent.com Businessman David Ashpaugh, 77, loves Westfield’s small-town atmosphere. “I was raised and went Education to school here. I have lots of family and friends here. It’s been a very good town with lots of good people,” he said. Ashpaugh can recall going to a high school basketball game on Friday night as a child and walking on Ind. 32 to his home on Carey Road. “We’d walk the center line home and never saw a car pass us either way,” he said. During his junior and senior years in high school, Ashpaugh started working for Old Bill Electric as a high school student. After nine years with the business, he moved over to JD Electric for three years. “I enjoy it greatly. I’ve been blessed to do something I love my whole life,” he said. Ashpaugh Electric opened May 20, 1965, which was started by Ashpaugh and his brother, Bill. “We worked right out of my garage (on Gray Road),” he said, adding he bought his brother out in 1970. “It’s changed a great deal.”

What else? • Brian Ashpaugh said the business was originally slated to be demolished as part of the U.S. 31 reconstruction but a change in plans has saved the location. “Godby (next door) had to go and we get to stay. It’s a real prayer answered to stay here,” he said. “They moved the project just east enough that they miss this building.” • For the past 14 years, Ashpaugh Electric has been named as a Super Service Award winner by Angie’s List. “It takes the entire staff. I very excited obviously as the business owner,” Brian said.

Back in the day

When Ashpaugh first started as an electrician almost 50 years ago, the local code was one page and the national code was a small book. Ashpaugh said a big service was 100 units of electricity and 60 units were common in households. He added that few homes had air conditioning. “Today homes have 600-amp service. There’s a lot more electrical demand in homes,” he said. “Few things in the home used electricity compared to now.” When Ashpaugh began working as an electrician he was paid 35 cents per hour and he handdrilled holes in framework for electrical wiring. “Everything was done by hand back then. You drilled a lot of holes in a home to wire it,” he said. Back in the day, agreements were made with a hearty handshake. Nowadays, Ashpaugh said the business is very contractual and legal. “You looked a man in the eye and shook his hand. Your handshake was your bond,” he said.

Second generation

Brian Ashpaugh, 53, now runs the business his father started almost 49 years ago. As one of the older Westfield businesses, Ashpaugh Electric’s work ranges from residential to commercial to light industrial. Brian said the business works with new businesses coming out of the ground

to remodeling bathrooms, kitchens, basements and additions. “We work hard at being diversified,” he said. Brian first started accompanying his dad on evening service calls when he was 7. In dark basements, Brian would hold the flashlight and watch David work. When he was 13, Brian began working for his father before going to Lincoln College of Technology after high school. “My dad is the smartest electrician I’ve ever met. He sees it – the invisible color of powerful force – my dad just gets it and he’s helped me understand it,” he said. Brian worked for Lockhart Cadillac for 16 years before coming back to the family business. One of the biggest lessons Brian learned as service manager from Lockhart was to become detached emotionally from situations and look at it from the customer’s perspective. “I feel blessed to work for Mrs. (Freda) Lockhart. She was the first woman dealer ever for General Motors – all divisions,” he said. “I learned a great deal from her on customer service. She was very customer focused and detailed. While Brian controls the business, David still

has an office and works for the company he started. “It’s what every man dreams of – having a son take on the business. It’s a real blessing to have them in the business, especially when you get along well,” David said. “Being an employee for someone else made me appreciate it much, much more,” Brain said.

Faith

David said he started his company because there was a need to be more ethically focused. Being raised on the Bible and 10 Commandments, David wanted his company to be more Christ-centered. “You treat your fellow citizens the way you want to be treated. Words become your bond. Never cheat them, be fair and honest,” he said. As a born-again believer, Brian said religion plays an important role in his personal life and business. “I’m out there with my faith and work hard to be held accountable as a man of God,” Brian said. “I work hard to conduct my business as Christ would have me run my business. I work hard to

• Ashpaugh Electric started out of David Ashpaugh’s garage on Gray Road. In 1967. It built the first office at Ind. 32 and Carey Road. The business was home there for 39 years before it moved to 17902 U.S. 31 North in 2008. “We haven’t gone very far,” he said. • The Ashpaugh men are master electrical contractors. The National Electrical Code evolves every three years. “When my dad started in 1965 it was a little flier. The NE Code is now 850 pages,” Brian said. “It’s amazing how much more involved it has gotten since dad started the business. “ Ashpaugh said computer/digital systems are the biggest changes in the industry during that time. While the systems have a different wiring practice, Brian said the foundation remains the same. “For me it’s exiting. Something to read about, something to learn,” he said.

do that as a testament for what he has done for me. I want to show the difference between a Godly company and a company just out for themselves.” Brian said Ashpaugh Electric serves Hamilton and Marion counties and Zionsville. “God has blessed us and we continue to strive even in a difficult economy,” he said. “We’re very blessed to be in Hamilton County.”

C U RR E N T O O N

Safe neighborhoods the real end game The Westfield Police Dept., in a move we heartily applaud, has joined forces with Nextdoor, a web-based program with mobile capabilities. It’s more than a gateway to “find a great babysitter or trusty dentist, borrow a ladder or sell that old bookcase,” as its website indicates. This is about keeping you and your neighbors informed and neighborhoods safer, all in concert with the police department. Westfield joins Cedar Lake and Lafayette as the only Indiana municipalities to deploy the service. Now WPD can send alerts to specific (or multiple) neighborhoods. One neighborhood of more than 1,000 homes is said to be 50-percent enabled. We hope the connectivity grows; it would be a shame to have the service and not avail oneself the opportunity to be alerted to important information. Nextdoor says websites are password-protected and not accessible by search engines. Only real neighbors may log onto the system, with each member verifying his or her address so other users know the person is trustworthy. And, as important, Nextdoor vows to not share information with third parties. “One of the key features that sold me was the ability to send real-time notifications that are sent in an email or mobile text message to neighbors who have a Nextdoor account. This feature has been one of the most useful for our neighborhood watch,” Aaron Sherrick, lead block captain for the Countryside neighborhood, told the city of Westfield. “Nextdoor.com also has a mobile app for Android and iPhone, so you can share info even while walking on the neighborhood paths or checking on the neighborhood when you are away.” As of press time, two dozen neighborhoods had joined. Please consider making yours a part of the loop. Brian Kelly, publisher, and Steve Greenberg, general manager, are co-owners of Current Publishing, LLC. Write them at info@ youarecurrent.com.

USPS finances continue to improve

Incantation station

Commentary by Terry Anker

It may be a product of our literary history. Or, it may just be a part of our DNA. Whatever the genesis, we humans expect that objects or magic talismans will keep us safe, secure and free from threat real or imagined. Recently, I found myself on the Riverwalk in San Antonio – wonderful place, by the way – and during a short ride on a water taxi to a restaurant the affable and tipexpecting driver was regaling those assembled of various factoids about the buildings and historical elements along the passageway. In the 1920’s, it seems, a regional insurance company elected to build its headquarters as a rather unusual combination of gothic-revival architectural elements and a highly aspirational skyline-dominating tower. The creators included elaborate entablatures and heavily carved limestone details meant to evoke the European designs of religious and institutional buildings of the period. The young captain of our vessel elected to focus his attention on the various grotesques and gargoyles that ring the massive edifice. Each

of them, we were told, was installed to keep the building safe from evil spirits that might seek access to harm the occupants of the company’s new home. Of all the important and historic elements, his attention focused in the firm’s use of object to intervene in some eternal struggle between good and evil. Whether these stone faces are supposed to actually prevent a metaphysical infestation or were only considered a periodappropriate decoration may be lost to history. We see scores of such symbols of protection each day. But do they have transcendent powers or do they simply serve to remind us that our beliefs are more powerful than any incantation? Does the object dangling from a chain on our neck really protect us from vampires or is it most effective in reminding us to defend ourselves?

Editor: The U.S. Postal Service just released its financial figures for the first fiscal quarter of 2014 (October through December) and more than 100 percent of our losses are the onerous pre-funding of retiree healthcare. The USPS would have earned a profit of $765 million if not for the pre-funding albatross that is crippling the postal service. Operating revenue is increasing and operating expenses are decreasing indicating the postal service is headed in the right direction. I want to emphasize the last three important financial figures of the postal service: 1. 1) 2013 fiscal year – $600 million profit without prefunding (October 2012 through September 2013) 2. 2) 2014 fiscal year first quarter (October 2013 through December 2013) – $765 million profit without prefunding 3. 3) January 2014 – $122 million profit without prefunding Bottom line – the last 16 months the postal service has made almost $1.5 billion in profits without the onerous prefunding mandate. The postal service’s unmatched networks and outstanding employees have made these striking results possible. And these trends augur well for the future, because they reflect the opportunities increasingly presented by the Internet and by an improving economy. Package revenues resulting from online shopping rose by more than 14 percent this quarter – more than offsetting the small decline in letter revenue. This quarter’s $765 million operating profit compares with the $100 million from the first quarter of 2013 – another sign of improving postal finances. In light of these results, lawmakers should strengthen the postal network while addressing the remaining problem: the Congressional mandate to pre-fund future retiree benefits required of no other public or private entity in the country. Degrading the network and reducing services to the public and businesses would jeopardize the postal turnaround. Ronnie Roush Carmel letter carrier

Mother of the year

Commentary by Danielle WIlson

I received an email the other day reminding me that this spring I would celebrate my 10th anniversary as Mother of the Year. Me! Mother of the Year! Sure it was just from my Mothers of Twins Club, and at the time there were maybe only 50 members, but the point is, despite what people think, I was at one time a good mom. So there! And now, well, I’m mainly trying to survive each day without taking meds, offing a child or my spouse, or purposely driving my mini-van into a retaining pond. What’s changed? Certainly the ages of my kids makes a huge difference. No one, thank the Lord, is in diapers, everyone sleeps through the night barring illness or Walking Dead-inspired nightmares, and a few can even make a mean meal of macn-cheese (I’m also a master of alliteration, thank you very much!). They dress themselves, shower, sometime do homework and usually complete their chores without too many complaints. By most accounts, they are healthy, happy teens/tweens. But I think we’d all agree, “2014 Mother of the Year” would be a stretch. I do, after all, consistently serve my kids pre-packaged, high-sodium foods and forget to pick them up from track practice (Sorry, coach!). But in reality, what makes anyone a good mom? When I was in the throes of stay-at-home motherhood with a newborn, toddler twins and a precocious preschooler, I thought I was a ter-

rible parent. Isolated and alone, I longed to go back to work just so I could have a break from the constant pressure and monotony of keeping said babies alive and well. I certainly did not “feel blessed” to be playing house and Hot Wheels all day long, nor did I truly appreciate the opportunity to spend all of my waking (and unwaking it would seem) moments nurturing and caring for my children. Especially when I attended Twins Club meeting, where many members had struggled with infertility, my schemes for propping a bottle to buy 10 minutes for a shower and using Playhouse Disney to babysit while I scarfed down a long-forgotten-in-the-toaster bagel seemed utterly selfish and irresponsible. As it turns out, though, and I also learned this from the amazing mothers at Twins Club, doing the best you can each day is what makes us all good parents. We won’t always succeed, but as long as we are trying, we are all Mothers of the Year. Even me in 2014! Peace out. Shameless plug: The Northside Twins and Multiples Club, the very same group that once elected yours truly Mother of the Year, is holding its Children’s Consignment Sale on April 26 at Fishers UMC.

Idea(l) wife

Commentary by Dick Wolfsie

If my column isn’t particularly funny this week, I have no one to blame but my wife. I have always depended on Mary Ellen humor to in some way annoy, befuddle, confound or mock me, thus leading me to my inevitable outburst: “That’s my next column.” Every week I depend on her. She is my rock. She is the well I go to when I need an idea. But this week, the well dried up. I thought there was potential the other day when we were deciding on a movie to watch on Netflix later in the evening.“Oh, this will be rich,” I said to myself. She’s going to pick out a chick flick and she’ll make me sit through it with her. The column was half written in my head when she said “How about this one, Dick? Caddyshack.” I panicked at first, but the evening was young. We still hadn’t made a decision about where to have dinner. My wife usually steers clear of fast food, but I like it, because I’m pretty tight with a buck. Then she calls me cheap. Great columns are made from this very conflict. “I’m starving. How about Steak ‘n Shake?” “Sounds good. I’m in the mood for a burger.” “No, no you’re not in the mood for a burger. You’re in the mood for a good steak, or a marketpriced lobster. Come on. Work with me. Call me a

tightwad. I’ve got a column due in the morning.” “Nah, a burger sounds fine. But first, I need to stop at DSW for a few minutes and get a pair of snow boots. It won’t take long.” Saved! This would take her at least two hours. I could write about being able to fill out my entire 2014 tax return while she shopped for shoes. “Hi, Dick, I’m back.” “You’ve only been gone 10 minutes. You’re killing me.” “I saw exactly what I wanted as soon as I walked in the door.” “No, no. You have to try on lots of shoes. Then you’ll come out to the car with four pairs and when we get home you’ll try them all on. Please, help me out here.” “You know, Dick. I’m on to you. You want me to behave in a certain way so you’ll have an idea for a column. Without me, you are an empty shell, a man devoid of original ideas, a writer without a thought in your head.” “Oh, thank you, thank you. I was afraid I was never going to make that deadline.”

Feel green, not blue, on St. Patrick’s Day By: Kristen Yates • editorial@youaecurrent.com For the past six years Mo’s Irish Pub St. Patty’s Day – 2 Day Bash has been a hit.

Corned Beef Puffs By Sophie Pappas sophie@youarecurrent.com These puff-pastry appetizers make for a great introduction to an Irish feast. Plus, they are simple and so delicious! Ingredients: • 2 1/2 cups finely chopped deli corned beef • 2 tablespoons chopped onion • 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard • 1 tablespoon mayonnaise • 1/4 teaspoon prepared horseradish • 1 cup beer • 1/2 cup butter • 1 cup flour • 1/4 teaspoon salt • 4 eggs

Photo courtesy of Pampered Chef Fall Cookbook.

Directions: 1. Mix together the corned beef, onion, mustard, mayonnaise, and horseradish. Cover and refrigerate. 2. Preheat an oven to 450 degrees F (230 degrees C). 3. In a large pot, bring beer and butter to a rolling boil. Stir in flour and salt until the mixture forms a ball. Transfer the dough to a large mixing bowl. Using a wooden spoon or stand mixer, beat in the eggs one at a time, mixing well after each. Drop by teaspoonfuls onto a lightly greased baking sheet. 4. Bake for 10 minutes in the preheated oven. Reduce temperature to 350 degrees F and bake an additional 10 minutes until golden brown. Centers should be dry. 5. When the shells are cool, split the puffs and fill with the corned beef mixture. Refrigerate until ready to serve.

Koresh to fuse multiple styles

By Jay Harvey • editorial@youarecurrent.com

Ronen Koresh’s wide range as a creative artist could perhaps be traced to a typical Israeli apartment building of the 1960s. Dance The founder and artistic director of Philadelphia’s Koresh Dance Company explains it this way: “My diversity to some degree is the result of the accumulation of so many experiences in Israel,” he said. Koresh was born there 52 years ago. “I grew up in a country where in one building with 12 apartments, you might have 12 different nationalities living there,” he said by phone last week from Philadelphia. “I’m a Yemenite Jew, and next door you might find Jews from Morocco or Tunisia or Iran. All those people eat different foods and listen to different music. As a child, you don’t pay attention to those differences, but they are carved into you: The way people dance and the way they party becomes a part of you.” From the time he was turned on to dance as a boy, he has sought to express this diversity in staged dance. His company biography identifies this stunning array of influences: “Graham technique, Luigi jazz, classical ballet, club dancing, military maneuvers and Israeli folk dance.” It’s no wonder he’s reluctant to associate himself with a particular style. “I don’t choreograph in one style,” he said. “Style is a limitation. Once you develop a style, you have to stick to it. Mine is constantly changing.” The common thread of his choreography is simply who he is. “There is a signature, and that is me - the intensity of it, the way I approach things,” Koresh said. “But I try to stay open-minded as much as I can. I will use anything to communicate.” The centerpiece of the 10-person troupe’s program here is Koresh’s 2012 setting of Ravel’s “Bolero,” the famous orchestral showpiece with the hypnotic rhythms and repetitive theme. Having loved the piece since his youth, Koresh took his time deciding he was ready to add his version to many predecessors, dating back to the work’s 1928 premiere. “I didn’t want it to be another sexy ‘Bolero,’

Philadelphia’s Koresh Dance Company will put on a show that’s at once mysterious, but with a sense of humor, too. (Submitted photo)

but one that would stand on its own. Mine is really different: I feel like a conductor with that music, like I’m conducting it in a childish way. So I took it to a place like a playground,” he said. “My dancers are not kids, but we can act in a way that’s childlike. It’s very mysterious, and it has a sense of humor to it, too.”

Tips for a healthy spring break Commentary by William Heisel, MD

This month families begin heading to warmer climates for spring break. Whether you’re traveling by plane or car, here are Wellness some important things to remember to keep your family healthy on vacation. Tips for air travel Fight germs. Before settling into your seat, wipe the tray table and armrests with antibacterial wipes. Use alcohol-based hand sanitizer before eating. Don’t use airplane pillows or blankets unless they are delivered to you in plastic. Better yet, bring your own. Stay hydrated. Drink plenty of bottled water during the flight. Lip balm, moisturizer and small misters may come in handy to help combat dry cabin air. Protect your ears. Changes in cabin air pressure can cause ear pain, especially in children. During takeoff and landing, offer an infant the breast or a bottle to encourage swallowing, which helps keep the eustachian tubes open. Chewing gum, yawning or swallowing are good remedies for older children and adults to avoid

Indiana Vein Specialists is at 11876 Olio Rd., Suite 700, Fishers. For an appointment, call 348-3023. Probiotics – Yogurt is a power food that can boost your immunity. Probiotics, or the “live active cultures” found in yogurt, are healthy bacteria that keep the gut and intestinal tract free of diseasecausing germs. Although they’re available in supplement form, a recent study found that a daily 7-ounce dose of yogurt was just as effective in boosting immunity as popping pills. Prevention.com

ear discomfort. If you have cold symptoms, talk to your doctor about taking a decongestant before flying to help prevent earache. Tips for road travel Take frequent breaks. Long car trips can take a toll on children and adults alike. Make a point to stop every two hours to stretch your legs. Build 15-minute breaks into your travel time so you won’t be tempted to skip them. Snack smart. Avoid the high-sugar, high-fat snacks found in rest area vending machines and roadside convenience stores. Instead, pack healthy snacks such as fresh fruit, raw vegetables, pretzels or reduced-fat crackers. People often eat in the car to fend off boredom, so bring travel-friendly games to keep children engaged. Prevent motion sickness. To ease motion sickness, keep your head still and avoid reading or watching TV or videos. If car sickness persists, stop for some fresh air, sip clear, carbonated beverages or eat soda crackers. During vacation, keep children on their normal sleep schedules, when possible. Factor in time for naps between activities. Also, stick to their normal diets, as much as possible. They’ll be happier – and so will you. William Heisel, MD, specializes in internal medicine and pediatrics.

The owner of Carmel’s newest art gallery has gotten an early taste of success and is hungry for more. now open Inspire Gallery owner Catherine Charter Bauder said that since she first opened her doors at 15 E. Main St. next to Carmel Couture Boutique, she has sold a painting and gotten commissions for three more. Not bad for a gallery still working to get its sign up on the building. Bauder said her grand opening on Feb. 8 was invitation-only, but that she is hoping to showcase her gallery to a larger audience during this month’s Gallery Walk on March 8. Bauder is a portrait artist who has branched out into landscapes as well, and her work is a combination of paintings and drawings. “I like both. It just depends on what the subject matter is,” she said. “I really like drawing a portrait because I feel like I’m more involved in the drawing. It’s immediate whereas a painting might take weeks to complete.” Inspire Gallery currently also features the work of painter Randall Scott Harden, and over time the lineup of featured artists will change. Bauder also uses her new space as a studio. She said she’s found inspiration in her new location, as have the children who will watch her work during the hours her gallery is open to the public. “I love Carmel. I love the community. I love the

town,” she said. “During the summertime I don’t know how you can beat it.” She said she has worked as a professional painter since 1972 and moved from Michigan in 1993 to work as a stock broker for Charles Schwab; but she has been painting full-time for the past four years. Bauder has taught art classes at the SullivanMunce Cultural Center in Zionsville and at the IUPUI extension program at Glendale Mall in Indianapolis. But she’s happy to leave behind her studio in Broad Ripple and set up shop in Carmel because she sees her future here. She said the city has been helpful in promoting and advertising her business, but that she didn’t receive a rent subsidy – but that doesn’t mean she’ll skimp on the wine and cheese during Gallery Walk. “Come in and check us out,” Bauder said. “If (people) like a style, but want a different subject, we take commissions.”

Church Floor at Taybet al Imam, Syria (Photo by Don Knebel)

Paradise and a Syrian church floor Commentary by Don Knebel In 1985, workers building a road in Taybet al Imam, a small town in northern Syria, uncovered a magnificent church floor buried travel beneath two feet of dirt. The floor, now protected under a permanent building, illustrates early Christian beliefs and may have provided the inspiration for Islamic images of Paradise. The 6,000 square-feet floor was once part of the Church of the Holy Martyrs, built in about 442 A.D. The floor still includes bases of columns that once supported the three-nave church. The entire floor is covered with colorful mosaic scenes, making it one of the largest continuous Byzantine mosaics ever found. The scenes are not like those found in modern churches. No pictures show Jesus or Mary. None show saints or angels. In fact, the floor contains no representations of human or divine beings at all, reflecting the early Christian belief that God forbids the creation of “graven images.” Instead, the floor includes about 20 framed representations of important Christian buildings, including churches in Bethlehem and Jerusalem and a cross-shaped church honoring Simeon the Stylite, a Syrian Christian ascetic who lived atop a

column for 37 years. The most theologically significant scenes illustrate the fifth century idea of Paradise. Many Christians then understood Paradise to be God’s eventual recreation of the Garden of Eden on earth, ushered in by the expected return of Jesus. So, deer drink from a steam overflowing with fish, wild animals run free, and grapes and cool drinks are in abundance. Peacocks, whose bodies were once thought never to decay, drink from a golden chalice, symbolizing God’s promise of immortality. Lions run together with prey among trees laden with fruit. These images are remarkably similar to the Paradise described in the Quran, a fact not necessarily a coincidence. Muhammad is known to have visited Syrian churches during caravan trips with his uncle. As suggested by a floor panel showing two camels beside a caravan stop, the Church of the Holy Martyrs was along the caravan route north of Damascus, The Islamic images of Paradise may have their roots in a Syrian church. Don Knebel is a local resident who works for Barnes & Thornburg LLP. For the full column visit currentzionsville.com. You may contact him at news@currentzionsville.com

Canine CPR and other pet answers

Commentary by John Mikesell

As I promised last time some more things about your dog that you might want to know: Can dogs get sunburn? Canine The short answer is yes they can. That is why you should never shear a dog’s coat too short. Did you know that “premium” dog foods actually cost less than so called “economy” brands? The reason is that the higher-priced dog food is so densely packed with nutrients you can feed your dog less of it. Is it ok for your dog to drink from the bird bath? No. Birds carry fungal diseases that infect both dogs and humans. Give Fido an outside water bowl and put it where the birds can’t get it. Checking breathing in an uncon-

scious dog. Place your hand on the dog’s side to feel if the chest is moving up and down. You can also hold a mirror near his mouth. If it fogs up, he’s breathing. if not you may need to perform CPR in this order of priorities. Airway: Check the throat and mouth for foreign objects Breathing: If your dog isn’t breathing, place your mouth over his muzzle if he weighs more than 30 pounds. Seal his entire snout with your mouth if he weighs less than 30 pounds and gently exhale until you see the chest rise. Give four or five breaths rapidly and then check to see if your dog is breathing without assistance. Circulation: If you can’t detect a heartbeat or pulse, you will need to perform chest compressions. Ask your veterinarian how to perform them. One last little thing, several customers

have asked me is if it’s ok for your dog to eat toilet paper? It won’t hurt him, unless he eats several rolls, just don’t feed him dinner. One last little pet peeve of mine is cleaning up after your dog. What you do in your own yard is your business, but when you walk your dog in a public place, like the Monon trail, please cleanup after your dog. Just because there is snow on the ground it does not absolve you from clean up duties. I have noticed piles of dog poop when I walk Karma – from big dogs. Not fun to dodge piles of dog poop. Please clean up after your dog. John Mikesell, owner of Izzy’s Place, A dog Bakery in Carmel, can be reached at izzy@izzysplacecarmel.com

Kid, pet-friendly carpet and flooring choices

Commentary by David Decker

Keeping your floors neat and tidy when there are young or furry members of the family living in your house is difficult. Parents indoors and pet owners both know that a certain amount of messiness and wear is inevitable, but it’s helpful to know what materials are more kid and pet-friendly flooring than others. Here is what you need to know about choosing flooring that will be best suited for children, pets or a combination of the two. Stain-resistant carpet Just as the name implies, stain-resistant carpet is specially made to repel dirt, liquids and other messes (including pet accidents). Carpets made with wool are naturally stain-resistant and durable, but a bit pricier than synthetic materials. The most popular stain-resistant carpets are made from nylon that’s been infused with a special coating during the manufacturing process. One word of caution: do not clean your stainresistant carpets with harsh chemicals, because this could damage or erode the coating. Tile Porcelain, stone or ceramic tile is a good choice if you’re looking for something that can hold up against wear and tear. Like stain-resistant carpet, messes can quickly and easily be mopped up without leaving permanent damage. Tile is also very scratch resistant, which is help-

quiet to walk on.

Pets and children are messy, but the right flooring eases the cleaning burden. (Submitted photo)

ful if you are worried about pet claws damaging your floor. Vinyl flooring While most people wouldn’t think vinyl to be a very innovative flooring choice, there have been many innovations in vinyl over the last few years. Today’s “luxury” vinyl designs is great for pets and kids because it’s scratch and stain resistant, low in allergens, easy to clean and even

Green options Many homeowners are choosing to install flooring made from renewable resources, such as cork or bamboo. Both are very durable materials, which make them great options for homeowners with pets or children. Cork flooring is naturally antimicrobial, which means that it will reduce the amount of mold and other allergens in the room. Additionally, it’s scratch resistant and holds up well against moisture. It also can absorb sound, which is always a plus for pet owners and parents. You may also want to investigate bamboo flooring. Bamboo is actually harder than hardwood flooring, which means than it will stand up to foot traffic. It is also stain-resistant and extremely durable. The best way to choose flooring is to analyze what types of things your family will do most frequently in that particular room. Then consider which type of material will most benefit all the activities (and potential messes) that may occur there. Choose carefully and you’ll have flooring that enhances the room and makes the entire family happier.
