Westfield Mayor’s Breakfast for Scouting

The doctor is out – OrthoIndy physicians Mark Stevens and Terry Trammell retire. Stevens starts a new adventure in Arizona, while Trammell enjoys retirement. Both are orthopedic specialists with more than 32 years each at OrthoIndy.

The eighth annual Westfield Mayor’s Breakfast for Scouting at the Bridgewater Club received $28,500 in pledged donations on March 13 to help offset the costs of programming, supplies and equipment and training workshops and camps. There are seven Cub Scout Packs, four Boy Scout Troops and two Venture Crews in Westfield and surrounding communities comprising 422 Cub Scouts, 176 Boy Scouts and 12 Venturers in 2012. Last year, more than 3,500 hours of community service were volunteered by these scouts. For more photos, visit the Current in Westfield’s Facebook page. (Photos by Robert Herrington)

COMMUNITY Construction

U.S. 31 improvements discussed By Anna Skinner • news@currentinwestfield.com

Construction schedule

Almost 300 members of the community learned about the updated timeline, design and construction plans for the U.S. 31 Hamilton County project last Tuesday at Westfield Middle School cafeteria. Hosted by INDOT, the open house provided citizens a chance to interact with representatives and learn more about the 13-mile stretch of construction along U.S. 31. Many citizens expressed concern about how the construction and the new road will affect Westfield, and whether the confusing detours and construction will even be worth it in the end. “The new highway will provide a safer road through Westfield. You’ll have easier access from the south to the north,” Seth Schickel, structural team leader for R.W. Armstrong (an INDOT contractor), said. “It will increase the capacity and safety, and it will all look nice in the end, too.” The construction project started in 2011 and work is planned to end in 2016. There are several different contracts split up throughout periods of time so INDOT can focus on each part of the highway. The result will encompass I-465 to Ind. 38 in Hamilton County. INDOT has budgeted for landscape design as well, and when the project ends, there will be approximately 50 species of trees and native grasses for appeal and to protect against erosion. “The highway will have a more natural look

• This year: 161st Street, 151st Street and Greyhound Pass, and preparations at Ind. 32 intersection. • 2014: 191st Street, 181sr Street and Oakbrook Parkway, Ind. 32, 169th Street and preparations at 136th, 131st, 116th and 106th streets. • 2015: 136th, 131st, 116th and 106th streets and preparations at I-465. • 2016: I-465 when we’re finished because we will use different colors and palettes so the road will look more appealing than other highways,” Green 3 Landscape Designer Aaron Wood said. In a couple years’ time, U.S. 31 will be quicker, safer and more appealing, but for now commuters and the citizens of Westfield will have to maneuver around messy debris and construction signs. “I think with any project you just have to be patient,” R.W. Armstrong Project Engineer Melanie Killips explains. “But in the end it will be a lot nicer.” Sixty percent of the $400 million construction project has been completed, and the INDOT workers truly believe that the Westfield community will strongly benefit from this highway.

COMMUNITY Cover Story

Established in 1930, the Westfield Lions Club continues to serve others By Robert Herrington • robert@youarecurrent.com Jeff Larrison went to school with the late Lion Bob Pickett’s daughter. At Pickett’s funeral, Larrison served as a pallbearer with members of the club. “I really liked Bob and thought it’d be a good thing to do,” he said about joining in 2006. “It wasn’t until a few years later I started recognizing the good we do in the community. It’s like my life turned into high definition.” Joe Edwards became a Westfield Lions Club member in 1973 because a friend asked him to join. Bob Benson joined in 1969 because the Lions Club in his hometown sponsored the Little League baseball team he coached. “I thought, ‘There’s a club that does something for people, that pays it forward,’” he said. “It was also a chance for me to meet people after I moved here from St. Louis.” All three men are active Lions and have served as president of the oldest service club in Hamilton County. Westfield Lions Club was established in 1930 and 83 years later, the 36-member club continues to focus on improving the community with its motto, “We Serve.” During the past five years, the Westfield Lions Club has donated $135,344.37 to its charities. Larrison said the main fundraiser was the annual fish fry, which is held the first week of September. It is the longest-running fry in the county – dating 82 years. Fundraising changed when the club began a Texas Hold’em tournament. Lions Poker for Sight is held twice a year with the next tournament on April 19 and 20 at the Hamilton County 4-H Fairgrounds. The champion wins $10,000 and a custom leather champion jacket. “It’s been very successful. Basically, we just give away that money (to charities),” Benson said, adding the total payout to players is more than $25,000. Benson said other club fundraisers during his time have included turkey shoots, chicken barbecue, pancake breakfasts, hamand-bean suppers, flower delivery, entertainment book sales and even sales of Adirondack chairs. In 1925, Helen Keller challenged Lions to become “knights of the blind in the crusade against darkness.” “We’ve kinda taken it on as a group – projects to help people counter blindness or help better their vision problems,” Benson said. Westfield Lions are particularly proud of their eyesight program, which pays for an eye exam and a set of glasses for students www.currentinwestfield.com

in need identified by Westfield Washington Schools. “In the past five years, 150 students that couldn’t afford glasses got glasses,” Edwards said. Westfield Lions donates to numerous state funded eyesight organizations including recycling eyewear, eye and tissue banks, cornea transplants, the Indiana School for the Blind and leader dog training in Rochester Hills, Mich. “It cost $40,000 to get a puppy through training and 62 percent wash out,” Dan Wilcox, district governor and past Westfield club president said. “It can get pretty expensive. Our dogs are trained for deaf and blind people – it’s the only facility in the country.” The club also provides to community groups such as Westfield Washington Schools’ teachers through education foundation grant funding and students through scholarships, banquets and athletic and academic awards. Wilcox said the club donated $10,000 to help establish the Fallen Heroes Fund, which is designated to help cover costs for Westfield fire and police officer families in the event of a tragic accident. For 27 years the club met in the Community Room of the Westfield Public Library, which is now the home of Cave Printing. In Current in Westfield

the beginning, meetings were held weekly on Thursday evenings, with Ladies (spouses) Night each month. Later, meetings were changed to the first and third Thursday evenings each month, the first being Ladies Night and the second being for club business. In 1955, plans were drawn for a clubhouse to be built on land purchased from the town. With members doing about 80 percent of the construction work, the building was completed in 1958. In 1970, the building was enlarged to almost double the original size. A complete renovation of the kitchen area took place in 1973, and the roof and siding were replaced in 1995. “This building is used by Lions and the community 265 days a year with Scouts, 4-H clubs and rentals for birthday parties, showers and auctions,” Benson said. “I can’t tell you how many churches were started here. From the community standpoint, this was the community center.” “The Westfield High School senior prom was here in 1959,” Edwards said. The Lions now face a problem as its clubhouse at 120 Jersey St. is in the heart of Grand Junction. “We have to find a new home or meet at a restaurant,” Benson said. ”We have a little time to figure it out.” March 19, 2013 | 9

Grand Park making significant strides

Who needs the beach? It is our position that the Indianapolis area has attained another milestone by being recognized as a top family vacation destination. Ladies and gentlemen, start your engines and make your hotel reservations because Indianapolis is serving up some Hoosier hospitality, spring break-style. While winter-weary Hoosier families scatter to the southern coasts for spring break, Indiana will be opening its doors to budgetconscious families in need of a quick, fun get-away. Livability.com recently named Indianapolis as one of its top 10 picks for the 2013 best spring break destinations for families. It focused on finding the best quick getaways to make the most of the short time spring break offers by analyzing Livability.com’s 500 city index for places that have temperate climates along with lots of attractions, parks, natural areas, affordable hotels and kid-friendly restaurants. Indianapolis was recognized for “cultural attractions, great restaurants and entertainment districts that create an exciting destination for families looking to fill their spring break with cosmopolitan activities.” Yes, c-o-s-m-o-p-o-l-i-t-a-n activities. Indianapolis has come a long way from Indy-no-place thanks to the tireless work of the tourism and hospitality community, city leaders, planners and welcoming residents. This honor is an especially impressive feat for a land-locked, Midwestern city with no mountains or oceans.

A family affair

Commentary by Terry Anker

As humans on this planet, we should all care about character. It helps keep us from killing each other, to be sure. But more importantly, it expects that we pay for our own consumption, that we care for our own offspring, that we help those who can’t help themselves and that we respect the rights and desires of others to do the same. Yet, character all too often seems to get precious little attention. In fact, modern dictionaries tend to list character as a set of distinctive traits rather than a more traditional reading that would associate the word with especially positive qualities. So, how does one hope to teach it? Is it even something that is able to be instilled by training? Or, must it come from within the person who exhibits it? Most likely, character must be modeled if we hope to pass the quality on to our subsequent generations. The small town of Sheridan boasts many who lead by example. Among them is the

family behind the Biddle Memorial Foundation. Brian Myers, a decedent of the founder and board member of the trust, remembers the generosity of his parents and grandparents even as he helps guide the philanthropic vision of the family’s giving today. It’s not easy. There are always more requests than resources. Everybody has a favorite project. The need is great. Fortunately, character doesn’t expect perfection, but it only demands determination. This month, the family, along with local business JBS United, committed to the creation of The Sheridan Fund, administered by the Legacy Fund, Hamilton County’s Community Foundation, to work for the benefit of the historic village. To me, this is an example to follow. Terry Anker is an associate editor of Current Publishing, LLC. You may e-mail him at terry@ currentincarmel.com.

The Grand Park Sports Campus, we’re happy to report, has made significant progress these last several months. You won’t see a lot of it, because much of the work has been with underground initiatives. Now, the city is awaiting bids for eight synthetic-surface baseball fields (with fencing), seven synthetic soccer fields (which includes four football goalposts), perimeter and interior fencing, 52 baseball dugouts, 18 grass baseball fields, netting behind home plate for 26 baseball fields, lighting for 17 soccer and baseball fields combined, site lighting, multi-use path construction and a pedestrian bridge across Cool Creek. Once those bids are awarded, the park will become an even more active worksite, being shaped to revolutionize athletics tourism in the city. Could Westfield one day lay claim to the title of Indiana’s Amateur Sports Capital? We believe it’s possible. Let’s check in a year from now, when the joint will be jumping. Count on it. ••• Quick! Name the nation’s second-largest U.S. employer behind Walmart. If you chose the United States Postal Service, you’re on the money. Some in Congress, such as Sen. Jerry Moran (RKansas), want Saturday delivery, a possibility for the chopping block, maintained. Bad idea. Since Postmaster General Patrick Donahoe is stuck with a 2006 law Congress passed during the Bush II administration, he is in the middle of prepaying, across 10 years, 75 years’ worth of anticipated retiree health benefits. With handcuffs on. Granted the union environment often is counterproductive to customer service and the chance at longevity for the USPS, but the Republicans of the last decade foisted this upon all of us. We’ve taken our share of shots at the shoddy business practices at the USPS, but that with which Donahoe has been encumbered defies logic, just as Moran’s demand to retain Saturday delivery in the face of mounting deficits does.

Luckily, everything came out fine Commentary by Danielle Wilson I’ll get right to the bottom of things. My husband had his first colonoscopy the other day, and all I kept thinking as I sat in the anxietyfilled waiting room was They’re like lambs being lead to the slaughter, but in a funny, less morbid, kind of way. See, Doo has a strong family history of colon cancer and a brother who is a gastro-intestinal physician. Both of these resulted in his being scheduled for a screening far earlier than the recommended 50 years of age. So we got our insurance in line, made the appointment, and looked forward to the pre-op insanity. At least I was looking forward to it. Watching Doo chug four laxative cocktails and waste an evening on the john was the perfect antidote to my stilllingering bitterness over the dog acquisition. Even better, he couldn’t eat anything but fat-free chicken broth and non-red popsicles from 5 p.m. onward. And because he was to be heavily sedated, I had to tag along to receive the good/bad news and to drive him home. As compensation, I was allowed to bear witness to this truly unique post-op recovery ward atmosphere. I say “ward” because Doo was literally brought back to a large “holding facility” with eight beds cordoned off only by curtains. I heard everything on either side of us and across the way.

Most noteworthy, I was entitled to the distinkt pleasure (?) of hearing complete strangers pass gas – both disgusting and hilarious at the same time. For those of you unfamiliar with the process, a colonoscopy victim must expel the air that was used to make room for the scope before he or she is discharged. Patients are instructed to toot as forcefully and as often as then can, earning the coveted Brown Star when they exceed expectations. So while I’m trying to act mature and calm and understand what the physician is saying, I’ve got a scantily-clad Doo mumbling incoherently about Qdoba while earning his star in record time and a cacophony of varioustoned blasts reverberating around me. Is it any wonder I couldn’t stop giggling? That’s potty humor at its best, people. Luckily, Doo was fine, though the doc did remove some polyps that might otherwise have become cancerous down the road. I, on the other hand, may be permanently scarred. While Doo remembers nothing, I will forever hold vivid images of the packed waiting room of geriatrics whom I later heard star in a surprisingly accurate scene from Blazing Saddles. Peace out.

VIEWS Opinion

Mass transit is necessary

Commentary by Rep. Jerry Torr

Some have questioned why I am authoring legislation in the Indiana General Assembly that would give local voters in Hamilton and Marion counties the ability to improve and fund our transit system. I began as a skeptic myself but have become convinced during the last couple of years that this is necessary for the continued development and growth of central Indiana. House Bill 1011 allows local officials in Marion and surrounding counties to hold a referendum to determine whether each county will participate in the transit district. Although a number of counties are eligible to participate, it is anticipated that only Marion and Hamilton counties would actually hold referenda in 2014. In each county in which the referendum passes, local officials would then be authorized to enact an additional local income tax of up to 0.3 percent to fund the transit district. Proponents believe federal grants would likely be available to fund a large portion of the start-up costs. And while the federal government certainly needs to reduce spending, this is money that the federal government will spend anyway – if it does not come to Indiana, it will go to someone else at our expense. Most opponents of HB 1011 have focused on the potential for light rail, but whether or not any rail component would be included is

not dictated by the legislation and has not been decided. The first phase of the proposal being put forth by the proponents is an expanded bus service for Marion and Hamilton counties, including rapid transit bus lines. These would be nicer, cleaner quieter busses than those being used currently by IndyGo and would have amenities such as Wi-Fi for commuters. HB 1011 has the support of nearly every mayor in Central Indiana, as well as many other local elected officials. Furthermore, more than 150 different organizations have expressed their support for the plan. These organizations range from business groups to chambers of commerce to nonprofit organizations, and they support the plan for countless reasons, including increasing mobility and expanding access to jobs; easing traffic congestion and retaining and attracting top employers and skilled talent. We need to be preparing for our future as the population of Hamilton County is expected to double over the next 40 years, and I believe developing a mass transit system is a necessary step toward keeping up with the growth and expansion of central Indiana. Rep. Torr (R-Carmel) represents a large portion of Clay Township including the city of Carmel.

Transit bill isn’t specific enough Commentary by John Accetturo

House Bill 1011, which is referred to as the Mass Transit Bill, recently passed the House and is pending action in the State Senate. Three of the seven sponsors of the bill in the House are Jerry Torr (R-Carmel), Steve Braun (R-Carmel/Zionsville) and Todd Huston (RFishers). Four Democrats and another Republican also are sponsors. The mere combination of the sponsors might bring on a buyer beware reaction even to an opened minded person. The bill authorizes a metropolitan transit district to (1) construct or acquire any public transportation facility; (2) provide public transportation service by operating public transportation facilities; and (3) issue bonds and incur indebtedness. If a county approves the local public question, there will be an additional county economic development income tax rate of up to .3 percent to fund the transit district. For residents of Hamilton County, that will be a 30-percent increase on all income including retirement. Reading the bill’s details, I discovered that a metropolitan transit district board would be created with as many 14 appointed members that can tax and determine which transportation system they would spend our tax money on. Seats on the board include a union representative from union employees of the district.

Appointments to the board would be made by mayors, the governor, county commissioners, a union, etc. I just do not see how the interest of Hamilton County will be protected by a board as stated in the bill. Additionally, this will be another board created by government which will spend taxpayer money without being responsible to the taxpayers like elected officials are. There are a few specifics in the bill, but there are no concrete details on what kind of transportation system might be built or how much it will cost. However, it does allow the board to pass a county economic development income tax of .3 percent if the referendum is passed by our county. The vote on this question would take place in 2014 for Hamilton and Marion counties if the bill passes the Senate and is signed into law. We need better mass transportation. Voting to institute a tax without knowing what you are going to get and what the cost will be makes little sense. This bill asks us to vote ourselves a tax and let a 14-person board decide our fate. Or, just give us the money, and we will take care of you. John Accetturro is a Carmel resident and former member of the Carmel City Council. You may e-mail him at accetturo4carmel@ gmail.com.

NIGHT & DAY Et cetera

Civic launches ‘special’ youth program Commentary by Cheri Dick Booth Tarkington Civic Theatre is “special” in lots of ways besides the quality of the shows we produce. Civic is the largest community theatre in Indiana, and one of the ten largest in America. Our theatre is concluding its 98th year of continuous operation. And for more than 40 years, we have offered young people (beginning in the important pre-school years) access to a year-round, theatre-based performing arts program. In fact, Jr. Civic’s educational workshops and outreach programs reach more than 15,000 youngsters annually. All of these factors combine to make Civic Theatre a one-of-a-kind treasure in the state of Indiana. The new program I am happy to tell you about connects Civic Theatre with the word “special” in even more meaningful ways. Jr. Civic’s premier touring troupe, named ACT ONE, consists of 30 young performers, ages seven to 14, who live in communities throughout Central Indiana. ACT ONE was established to provide youth with the opportunity to strive for artistic excellence while developing poise, self-confidence, creative resourcefulness and important communication skills.

www.currentinwestfield.com

This spring, every ACT ONE performer will pair with a Special Olympics athlete of a similar age to rehearse and eventually perform a musical theatre program during the Indiana State Special Olympic Games in Terre Haute on June 8. And then in September, a reunion performance will take place during the International Arts Festival in Carmel. In addition, Booth Tarkington Civic Theatre will host the Special Olympics of Hamilton County Award Ceremony at our very own state-ofthe-art Tarkington Theatre. The value of community service is a lesson taught to the members of ACT ONE throughout the year. But this collaboration with the Special Olympics takes the concept of community service to a whole new level. It not only will provide a unique performing arts opportunity for Special Olympics athletes, enhancing their essential life skills, but it also will promote compassion and understanding among ACT ONE participants. It’s a WIN-WIN program for everyone! And what could be more “special” than that? Cheri Dick is the executive director of the Booth Tarkington Civic Theatre.

HEALTH Wellness

Each concussion is unique Commentary by Gary Chumbley I am routinely asked about concussion prevention and treatments, and with March being Brain Injury Awareness Month, I thought I would share some of the most common misconceptions and facts about traumatic brain injuries. Many people are familiar with the new concussion law that went into effect July 1 of last year. A concussion is a type of traumatic brain injury that changes the way the brain works. While many are caused by a direct hit to the head, some may be caused by an indirect hit to the body. Symptoms are not always obvious. They can be subtle, such as headache, light-headedness or feeling sluggish, and they can take 48 to 72 hours after the injury to appear. A concussion can occur without loss of consciousness. Even if symptoms are subtle and only last a short time, it is still considered a concussion. CT scans and MRIs are not always performed because they are typically normal after sustaining a concussion. Recovery from a concussion varies from person to person, and children and teens typically recover at a much slower rate than adults. Around 80 percent of concussed people recover within seven to 14 days, while 20 percent

can take up to six months or longer to recover. There are also misconceptions about sporting equipment and concussion prevention. While helmets do help to reduce the risk of fractures and severity of head trauma, they don’t do much to prevent concussions. Mouth guards also do not prevent concussions. They only protect your teeth and reduce the risk of mouth fractures. If there is a question on whether or not a player has a concussion, it’s best to follow the saying, “When in doubt, sit them out.” A player should return to play only after being symptom-free and assessed by a medical professional. Research suggests that for every concussion, a person is one to two times more likely for a second, two to four times more likely for a third, and three to nine times more likely for a fourth. Remember that no two concussions are the same, and each one should be treated individually. Gary Chumbley is a physical therapist at IU Health North Hospital and specializes in vestibular therapy and concussion management, coordinating those programs at all three locations (IU Health North Hospital, Zionsville, and Sports Performance). In addition, he has lectured locally on the subject.

DOUGH Dough

Communication is child’s talk Commentary by David Cain Deep down, we are all just kids. You are just kids in adult bodies. If you watch small children, you’ll see clues about how to deal with other people in your life. Simple explanations are a necessary requirement. The more simplistic you can explain things, the better the understanding. The more you can compare to things they already understand, the more quickly the concept is understood. Think about that with other people you talk to. Everybody loves analogies. Everybody loves comparisons. Everybody likes to box things up and search their brain for something like it that they already understand. Every product, every service, every thing is better understood by kids and your customers if it is compared to someGates’ grand plan – Billionaire Bill Gates sees the future of education as one that dumps copious amounts of cash into labs and group work, while less is spent on professors. Instead, leaders in various fields will teach students via the Internet. – www.money.cnn.com

thing they already understand. Kids need attention, and so do your customers. Kids will interrupt you and ask questions when you are in the middle of something else or talking to another person. They act like they are the most important people in the world. They are, and so are your customers. Give them attention. Show them patience. Thank and praise them. The most important thing you can do for your kids is to just look when they ask you to and listen when they are talking. It’s how they know you care. And, the same holds true for your clients and customers.

These are facts!

LIFESTYLE Travel

Australia is worth the price and effort Commentary by Lana Bandy Take a poll among your family and friends and you’ll find that Australia is on most Hoosiers’ travel bucket lists. It’s easy to see why: the huge country Down Under offers something for everyone. Nature lovers will enjoy the Great Barrier Reef. Located on Australia’s east coast, it is the world’s largest reef, stretching 1,240 miles. The Cairns area is a popular starting point for the reef. Numerous tour operators offer day trips (about 90 minutes from shore). Snorkelers and divers will be amazed by the colorful coral and fish, turtles, sharks and sting rays. Find a ship with submersible boats so non-swimmers can also enjoy the natural wonders. The beaches near Cairns and other northern cities are often closed from October to May due to deadly jellyfish. While these species are less frequent in the reef area, if your tour operator rents “stinger suits,” opt in. Cairns is home to many zoos and wildlife conservation centers. Here you can “cuddle” a koala and find tame kangaroos eagerly awaiting hand feedings (don’t try this in the wild, though). If you love the arts, fine cuisine or shopping, Sydney is a necessary stop. The most populous city in Australia, Sydney is famous for its harbor and one of the country’s most recognizable landmarks, the Sydney Opera House. Kids will love

Bondi Beach and its strong surfing culture. Another can’t miss attraction is Ayers Rock (Aboriginal name, Uluru). The red sandstone formation in the outback is a sacred Aboriginal site. Massive in size (1,142 feet high and nearly six miles in circumference), you can find watering holes, ancient cave paintings and dingoes in the area. Ayers Rock and its magnificent neighbor, The Olgas (Kata Tjuta), are popular sunrise and sunset destinations. The nearest town, Alice Springs, is five hours away, though many fly into Yulara, a nearby resort area.

Given its large size, the best way to travel Australia is via the air. U.S. travelers need two weeks to cover the main destinations. Also keep in mind that the U.S. dollar is weak versus the Australian dollar, so things are quite pricey. Despite this, Australia is well worth the effort.

Probiotics are powerful warriors Commentary by John Mikesell Feed the “good guy” bacteria in your dog’s gut to help him get the most out of his food. Adding supplemental Lactobacillus acidophilus, Bifidobacteruim bifidum, Lactobacillus bulgaricus, or other probiotic organisms to your dog’s diet is almost always a good idea. This will support the resident micro flora that are always present in your dog’s gut, enhancing digestion and absorption of nutrients, supporting detoxification and elimination processes and helping to boost his immune system. The digestive system is the largest immune system organ in the body; roughly 70 percent of the body’s immune cells, entrecotes, goblet cells, and other immune waters reside in the mucosal linings of the intestinal tract. Probiotics work in concert with these immune warriors by producing special enzymes and other chemicals that support immune functions at many levels. Probiotics will also help keep populations of “bad guy” pathogens, like Salmonella spp, and Escherichia coli, in check. One of the fundamental rules of holistic pet care is to al-

ways remember that no two animals are alike. Your dog may look and behave like others, but his (or her) inner nature is different from any other dog. What you can do: • Give your dog a probiotic supplement that offers a variety of strains of beneficial bacteria. • Nourish those good guy bacteria with a probiotic supplement. • Monitor your dog’s weight, the condition of his coat, his energy level, and the quality of his daily stool for signs that his diet needs to be adjusted in some way. What works well for some dogs may not benefit another dog in other circumstances. John Mikesell, owner of Izzy’s Place, A dog Bakery in Carmel, can be reached at john.mikesell@att.net.

Consider it as an “early warning system.” If you teach a dog not to growl when it is getting upset, it skips from being unpleasant to whatever its next reaction – which could be violent. – www.pawnation.com

PROTECT YOUR HUE Spring is all about new beginnings. So, what better time to try a new hair color, or for the less daring, adding just a few highlights? Investing time and money into a new hair color is only worth it if the color lasts! Be sure to ask your stylist for recommendations for keeping your color vibrant, even when spending hours in the sun on your Spring Break getaway. Color protecting products, such as Salon 01 Concepts brand Anti-Fading shampoo and ColorMoist conditioner will help in keeping your color from fading between visits. BEAT THE BLOAT ON SPRING BREAK! Beating bloat is imperative to feeling and looking your best in your everyday clothes, and, of course, in your swimsuit. Try these tricks to beat the belly bloat so you can feel fabulous and confident! Avoid salt - choose spices to flavor meals instead Avoid carbonated beverages - drink water Avoid high-carb foods - choose whole grains, protein, and brown rice if you must have a starch Avoid gum - when you chew gum, you swallow air that then becomes trapped in your GI tract causing pressure, bloating, and belly expansion. Avoid gassy vegetables - cauliflower, broccoli, Brussels sprouts, cabbage, onions, peppers, and citrus fruits as these vegetables create more gas in the GI tract. Avoid low-calorie and low-carb products - these products contain sugar alcohols that cause gas, bloating, and diarrhea. Avoid acidic drinks - ditch the coffee, alcohol, tea, and acidic fruit juices that irritate your GI tract, causing swelling.

EXFOLIATING ADVICE Exfoliating boosts your skins natural radiance while evening skin tone, unclogging pores and diminishing fine lines. Keep in mind however, over scrubbing can cause irritation and breakouts. For oily skin, it is OK to 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 sufficient. To be sure you are on a proper exfoliating schedule, consult with a trained esthetician. 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 looking fresh and healthy all year! Salon 01 estheticians are now booking appointments, and reservations are filling up fast! (317)580-0101

INSIDE & OUT Indoors

Remodel creates interest upon approach to front door

Commentary by Larry Greene

Creeping out from under the cold layer of winter into spring’s renewal is a rite of passage every year. As the warmer weather brings you outside, it may be time to take a discerning look at your home’s curb appeal. This homeowner did just that, and decided she was ready for a change. Original Design: This west Carmel home, located in the Crooked Stick neighborhood, was built in the 1980s. The current homeowners have been in the house for 17 years. “When we originally bought the house, it had Tudor details without being a Tudor-style home,” the homeowner said. “When we removed those bits about five years ago, the house became very plain. We tried to make the look work, but we decided we needed to dress it up.” The narrow walkway and small, dark entry porch were not particularly welcoming or noticeable. Design Process: The goal of the project was to give the house character and presence. Set far back on the lot, the homeowners wanted the home to be more impactful from the street. The design was created to have the home become more and more interesting the closer you moved toward it. Two main elements were incorporated into the final design: an expansive walkway and

large yet cozy front porch. The wide entry walkway serves as a focal point to welcome visitors as soon as they get out of their car. The lighted, stone pillars with limestone caps, which match the side block and porch base, cue visitors to the location of the new double front door. The texture of the flagstone serves as a transition from the existing

asphalt driveway to the brushed concrete porch. Timber-frame architecture influenced the front porch design, but the main goal was to complement the existing look of the home. Double cedar columns and exposed beams draw the eye from the driveway. As one comes up the walkway and on to the porch, smaller details like the cedar trim on the posts and the triple

"Just wanted to say thank you for providing such great care for our entire family!

brackets above the pillars, are noticeable. Partially enclosing the covered porch with newel posts and cedar rails and spindles makes the space feel like a cozy room. By adding brackets under the eaves, the design of the new porch is tied to the rest of the home. Color choice was centered on extending this cohesive look. The variegated flagstone used on the walkway and pillars compliment the home’s brick siding. The main paint color compliments the stones, while the trim color helps to pop the architectural details. Final Result: While before the non-descript architecture was easy to ignore, the new entryway completely transformed the look of the home, making it impossible to forget. The homeowner is proud to welcome her guests. “I wanted people’s blood pressure to drop when they approached our house,” she said. “Our home is so inviting now that I think we have achieved that goal.”
