Snapshot: Painting with celebrities

Buckets of Love – Westfield residents headed south on I-65 with 215 buckets of love. The Buckets of Love project was created to help lift the spirits of the families and individuals that lost so many belongings March 2 to the tornadoes in southern Indiana. The idea was to deliver as many buckets as possible, filling them with a bottle of water, a chocolate bunny, a bag of jelly beans and a small donation.

The new system, which delivers a targeted, intraoperative radiation treatment directly to the tumor site after lumpectomy, has been shown to be as effective as traditional radiation for certain women with early breast cancer.

Westfield resident wins $250k in Mega Millions drawing

One Hoosier got a sweet piece of last week’s Mega Millions action, missing the $656 million jackpot by one number. Angelica Silva of Westfield purchased a ticket at Speedway at 519 W. Main St. in Westfield that matched the first five numbers, but not the Megaball number, and is worth $250,000.  She claimed her prize recently at Hoosier Lottery Headquarters, accompanied by her boyfriend, Alberto Mendoza, and his mother, Maria Mendoza. Silva is a stay-at-home mom to a 3-year-old and is expecting her second child in June. She hasn’t formulated a long-term plan for her winnings yet, but ultimately hopes to use her winnings to benefit her children. “You don’t expect something like this to happen in your life,” said Silva. “It’s overwhelming.” Silva is one of 161 players nationwide to match the first five numbers, but not the Megaball number, in the recent drawing. She is the only Hoosier to do so. Indiana retailers sold 220,438 winning Mega Millions tickets with winnings of $1,295,801 for the recent drawing.

An additional 21,659 winning Mega Millions tickets in Indiana included the Megaplier option and accounted for an extra $272,580 in prizes. The Hoosier Lottery is committed to providing innovative and entertaining lottery games for the benefit of the citizens of Indiana. In fiscal year 2011, the Hoosier Lottery generated $188 million in net income, which Silva was used to significantly reduce the motor vehicle excise tax for all Hoosier drivers and also supported the pension funds for retired Indiana teachers, police and firefighters. Player prizes for the fiscal year totaled $495 million and $56 million was earned by Indiana retailers on the sale of Hoosier Lottery products. Since its inception in 1989, the Hoosier Lottery has produced $4 billion in net income for the citizens of Indiana, nearly $1 billion in commissions and bonuses for participating Indiana retailers, and has paid out $8.5 billion in player prizes. The Hoosier Lottery reminds players to always play responsibly. For more information, please contact Al Larsen at or 242-8803.

Playing with senses By Lindsay Eckert • Westfield’s Freedom Trail Park is allowing children with limited abilities to explore a world that is a daily adventure for most children: playing outside. Westfield Rotary Club has teamed up with Westfield Parks & Recreation with the assistance of Hamilton County Autism and Support Group and local Westfield Boy Scout troops to create and continuously develop the only sensory garden for autistic children in Hamilton County. The garden features wide ramps and handicap-accessible platform swings. Kurt Wanninger, former Westfield Rotary Club President, said children who may have not been able to play outside at a playground now have a welcoming place. He said the all-inclusive playground is the first garden in Indiana to use rubber instead of mulch. “The parents who visit the playground with their children praise its design,” Wanninger said. “At school playgrounds, the students just have to circle the playground and not be able to be part of it because the mulch makes it difficult. The rubberized ground and ramps allow the kids to drive to the top of the forts; they can actually interact instead of just watching

other kids interact.” Park-goers may see Sensory Park as a normal play destination with slides, swings and small places to hide where kids can let their imaginations run wild. Although some of the sights may be familiar to a park, it touches senses autistic children usually don’t get to experience at a public park, such as smell, sounds and touch. “It’s in a secluded area (located at the back of Silver Lakes subdivision), and students can play in the grass, smell flowers and listen to wind chimes Boy Scouts have made,” Wanninger said. Jazmin Rivera’s daughter, Camila Rivera, suffers from Stickler syndrome, and Jazmin said the park has created amazing moments for a

mother to see. “My daughter has to use a walker and hasn’t been able to walk by herself,” Jazmin said about her 3-yearold. “Two days ago, she just started walking to the slide. She saw other children walking and playing and I think that motivated her, and the type of equipment on the playground allowed her to do it.”

Cover story

How a new marketing campaign is making business a community endeavor By Lindsay Eckert • Westfield has built its foundation on small businesses and a strong sense of community since the 1800s. The city has developed into a nationally ranked school district and the home to major companies such as IMMI and Frontier. Downtown Westfield is brimming with new business. Westfield and the local businesses that have kept the Union Street and Ind. 32 intersection alive is introducing a new generation of business owners to a generation of history long passed. More than 20 downtown Westfield properties, each with their own history, eventually will bring their characteristic pasts to the present as building locations to bring in new residents, revenues and connectivity to the city’s downtown streets. Anne Poynter, Downtown Westfield Neighborhood Association director, said Grand Junction Properties has a marketing campaign that will breathe eccentric life into a simple downtown atmosphere. “I’ve been very determined to get downPoynter town on its feet. I started inventorying properties last year and I was surprised there were more than 20

properties in the downtown area available for lease,” Poynter said. “It’s an eccentric downtown with properties varying from little studio places to actual buildings.” Poynter said the next step was finding a way to open the eyes of entrepreneurs. “I worked with the Westfield Chamber of Commerce to find how we could proceed and we thought about Curt (Whitesell), a longtime Westfield resident and active member in the community,” Poynter said. “Curt, owner of Westfield Business Development, ended up being the right fit. He has the social media skills to network and the experience to help make this happen.” Whitesell As the technological and business-minded fuel for a downtown-wide marketing campaign, Whitesell networks with businesses and property owners to facilitate a business matchmaking program designed to match owners with unique locations, and businesses that enrich residents’ daily lives. “We are looking for something great for downtown,” said Whitesell. “I walk through downtown to get a feel of the available properties, then network and ask around, ‘Do you know this type of person who’s interested in starting this type of business?’ My job is to make

the connections and Anne’s job is to promote the city. Together, we’re creating a downtown catered to our community’s wants.” Grand Junction Properties is a free marketing tool that provides a database of available properties for any inquiries and a whole new brand for downtown Westfield. Poynter said the opportunity is exponentially beneficial for all involved. “Curt is trying to highlight what’s available as a one-stop shop, so inquiries can see what’s available to them,” Poynter said. “We had people stop in and say, ‘What do you guys have? I really like this downtown.’ Now, we can provide an abundance of information to match people with what they are looking for.” Poynter said it’s not just about buying property or selling to consumers in Westfield; downtown Westfield values business differently. “We want business owners to buy into the community. We want them to not just turn on the open sign at 9 a.m. and lock the doors at 3:45 p.m.,” Poynter said. “We want a support team, merchants who are exchanging ideas, talking about their community. Once the businesses connect, that connectivity will add vibrancy downtown.” You can view listing for Grand Junction Properties at

Stamping out sexual abuse of kids needs your help

Hamilton County parks and trails It is our position Hamilton County should be congratulated on being the healthiest county in Indiana. The annual County Health Rankings, released by the University of Wisconsin, takes into account the number of low weight births and the rate of people who die before age 75, has deemed Hamilton County the healthiest, with Boone County coming in second. We find it encouraging that Hamilton County residents take the time to ensure they are healthy. We would like to challenge residents in Hamilton County to come in first next year. We are privileged to live in an area rich with parks and trails designed to accommodate all sorts of outdoor activities. As the weather continues to warm up, we should try to take full advantage of these resources. We understand everyone has a busy schedule and it can be difficult to get out as much as we’d like and get some exercise. However, with a little preplanning and motivation, we can all get out and be active. We’ve already paid for all these parks and trails … we might as well take full advantage of them.

Worldwide misspeak Commentary by Terry Anker

In a world of instant messaging and the land of ubiquitous social media, an off-handed remark can be broadcast to thousands – perhaps millions – of people. Urged by the goal of expanding those who know and understand the importance of routine philanthropy in their lives, our community foundation, The Legacy Fund, has started a program to make full use of the array of these modern communication tools including Facebook, Twitter, blogs and LinkedIn. Mostly, Legacy Fund posts photos of local events and heroes along with the occasional notice of some piece designed to inspire giving. Yet, when reposting a story from The Wall Street Journal which innocuously enough supported corporate philanthropy, a far-away reader jumped into the fray with a stinging assessment of the purported generosity of the business leaders who give. Now, it seems one can, at the push of an all-too-easy button on the handy cell phone, post each fragment of thought. If a basic tenant of public discourse is to

“know one’s audience,” then the open nature of the Web is antithetical to this objective. Once posted, information is impossible to control and contain, yet entirely easy to contort. Recently, filmmaker Spike Lee tweeted online to millions the address of the shooter of the young boy in Florida. Unfortunately, Mr. Lee had an address for the wrong people. Thereafter, these folks have been receiving death threats and are in hiding for fear of their family’s safety. Should Mr. Lee be held to account for inciting vigilantism? Or, was his incident a simple misspeak amplified by the megaphone provided by social media? Regardless, it is clear these, like any powerful tools, are inherently dangerous and must be treated with special care. Likewise, their irresponsible use can carry great consequence to both user and bystander.

“Don’t worry about the world coming to an end today. It’s already tomorrow in Australia.”

These statistics knocked us off our perch: One in four girls and one in six boys are sexually abused before they turn 18. If that doesn’t upset you, consider more than 90 percent of sexuallyabused kids actually know their abuser. This madness has to cease. We’re in the middle of Child Abuse Prevention Month, and Chaucie’s Place, the advocacy center of which Current is a sponsor, is conducting a key program on April 23 at the Fishers Library; it should prove well worth the time of any interested parents, teachers, coaches and/or volunteers. The program, Darkness to Light’s Stewards of Children, is a comprehensive sexual abuse prevention-training program that educates adults how to avert, recognize and react responsibly to child sexual abuse. The program includes a three-part DVD presentation, an interactive workbook and a facilitator-led discussion. The cost is $15 per person for the session running from 5:30 to 8 p.m. Chaucie’s Place tells us attendees will gain increased awareness of the prevalence, consequences and circumstances of child sexual abuse; new skills for adults to prevent, recognize and react responsibly to child sexual abuse; positive change to organizational policies and procedures; and individual commitment to action through a personal prevention plan. For more information, please contact Chaucie’s Place at 759-8008. Brian Kelly, publisher, and Steve Greenberg, general manager, are co-owners of Current Publishing, LLC. Write them at info@

Running with leaky pipes Laughs by Danielle Wilson Warning: The following may cause embarrassment and eye-rolling in people of the male persuasion. Read at your own risk. Also, if you are pregnant or plan to become so, you may want to skip on over to another column. As most of you know, I recently turned 40. My twin sister, in order to celebrate this milestone, decided to have a baby. A baby! I can’t top that, but her pregnancy did inspire me to seek out some sort of challenge to prove to myself getting older doesn’t have to mean dementia and osteoporosis. I chose a marathon. Not a full 26.2 miles of course − suffering through one of those puppies was the most miserable experience of my 20s − but a 13.1-mile (half ) marathon. It’s still impressive, but far less fatal. And Doo and I are planning a beach vacation with the kids during the summer, so a mini seemed like a great idea. I’ve been training for about six weeks now and am progressing on schedule, but am facing one major hurdle every time I jog. Uncontrollable urination. And not in a wayside port-a-let. Actually, mid-running. What the hoo-ha? I can deal with the sore knees, the racing heart, even the occasional light-headedness and nausea that come with overexerting myself on a record-high temperature day after 10 hours of work, but I must draw the line at soaking myself. And I’ve tried everything short of self-

For more laughs, read Mike Redmond's column at imposed dehydration. Nothing helps. So now I’m stuck wondering how I’ll manage a maxi pad or even a Depends on race day. Because it’s so freakin’ distracting, not to mention humiliating, when I’m only a mile in and the leaking begins. I ran one hour this morning, and the first thing I had to do once I stumbled into the house and let Doo know I’d survived, hop in the shower. Here I am trying to get in shape and show my kids how to set and reach goals, and a little thing like bladder control may derail me. What’s a gal to do? I do have a friend who opted for surgical treatment, but I’m just not sure I’m ready for that. Sewing up the nether region seems like something my mother or grandmother should be worrying about, not me. I just want to be able to run a few miles and mop up sweat, not urine, like normal people. Is that too much to ask? Peace out.

Time for a change? Laughs by Dick Wolfsie I admit I’m not very good with gadgets. I’m having a heck of a time with the new parking meters that require credit cards. I told a police officer in downtown Indy the other day I couldn’t figure out how to get the blasted machine to accept my VISA. “Join the club,” he said. I’d like to. I hope it accepts cash. I miss the old parking meters. I miss fumbling for change in my pockets in a torrential rain. I miss going to a newsstand and buying a pack of gum with a $20 bill, just to get some coins. But if you love nostalgia like I do, don’t despair. With a little poor planning, you can still get one of those quaint little orange tickets on your windshield. When I was a kid in New York, you could park for 10 minutes for a penny. Of course, you couldn’t find a space, but at least it was affordable. My father still complained about parking being too expensive. He once told me on the morning of March 5, 1947, it cost him 16 cents to park while my mother was giving birth to me. OK fine, but did he have to take it out of my first allowance? The first working parking meters were installed in July 1935 in Oklahoma. In the 1930s, the meters in Chicago couldn’t generate any

profit. Most of the people who could afford to own cars in the Windy City were bank robbers or jewelry-store thieves, and the longest they ever parked anywhere was three to five minutes. Some people have challenged the constitutionality of paid parking, claiming streets are public property and nowhere in our founding fathers’ documents were parking meters ever mentioned. That’s a very conservative point of view. The liberals want directions in braille on the meters. Can we find a happy medium here? Parking meter pricing should be tied to how expensive your car is. For example, if you drive a $150,000 Lexus, the fee to park downtown should be $25 an hour. But if you have, let’s say, a 2004 burgundy Hyundai Tucson with a dent in the right passenger door, a dime a minute seems fair, just to pick an example totally at random. It may be quite a few years before the traditional parking meters come back in use. While I wait, I’m going to eat healthy and exercise. I plan on buying myself some time.

Exilis to fix liposuction Commentary by Dr. Barry Eppley

Q: I had liposuction six months ago that has left me with some unevenness over the thigh areas. The skin has some dimpling and a few more obvious humps in the upper portion of outer thighs. My doctor told me to give it six months after surgery to see if they would smooth out, and they definitely haven’t. Would Exilis be able to fix or improve how this looks? A: Skin irregularities are the result of an uneven fat layer under the skin. They can become apparent after liposuction due to pre-existing cellulite, poor skin elasticity and an irregular layering of residual fat left behind. One has to look carefully at the lumps and bumps to determine if filling the indentations, decreasing the height of the lumps or some combination approach is best. Tough to quit – Women find it more difficult to quit smoking than men, a new study suggests. A woman’s brain reacts differently to nicotine, and has more nicotine receptors in critical parts of the brain than male counterparts.

Exilis is a radiofrequency device that does spot fat reduction and has some degree of a skin-tightening effect. I find it to be one of the best nonsurgical approaches to treat liposuction deformities available today. It will likely have some beneficial effects on the contour of the thigh skin by helping to reduce the thicker or raised fat areas. It usually requires three or four treatments done in the office every two weeks to see the best effect. But if the indentations are the main contour problems, those are best treated by fat injections.

Spirituality The wine, the cup and communion LIFESTYLE

Commentary by Bob Walters While writing a recent communion meditation, I discovered something in the Bible as obvious at is was startling: Wine is never mentioned as being in the cup of Christ. This isn’t to argue whether in fact wine was served in the upper room at the Last Supper; it stands to reason it was. Nor am I here to argue the disciples drank blood; it stands to reason they did not. I was just surprised that for all the symbolism and tradition tied to the wine of communion representing the blood of Christ, the Bible never actually says “wine” describing that first communion. At his last meal on the eve (Maundy Thursday) of his crucifixion (Good Friday), Jesus told his disciples he was “going away,” broke bread representing his body and passed the cup describing its contents as “my blood of the new covenant” (Matthew 26:28, Mark 14:24) or “the new covenant in my blood” (Luke 22:20, 1 Corinthians 11:25). Jesus told them henceforth to “do this in remembrance of me” (Luke 22:19). That remembrance of Jesus is what we celebrate in communion. But, blood of the new covenant? What could that mean if it wasn’t literally blood? It stands to reason it meant this: Jewish law, tradition and

faith all said “life” existed in the blood (Genesis 9:4, Leviticus 17:11, etc.). The “new covenant” is the restored relationship of fallen mankind with a loving almighty God, of our faith in and salvation through Jesus Christ and the forgiveness of our sins covered by the shed blood of Christ. It’s our eternal presence in the infinite light of the Lord God. Blood of the new covenant means, “life forever, in faith.” These are just my words, and there are 2,000 years of theological descriptions and witness far better than mine. But if we look at the cup and see only the shed blood of Jesus on the cross, of pain, suffering, guilt, fear and the general turpitude of this mortal coil – of the misery of this human life – then we are missing the most important aspect of the cup of Christ. In the new covenant, this cup is a cup of life, love and freedom, not death. It is a cup of hope and grace, not a threat. It is a gift, not a debt or a transaction. The cup contains the life of Jesus Christ and our hope of eternal salvation. And to that, I say, “Cheers!”

Help me, help you Commentary by David Cain

My 4-year old daughter came out of the restroom smiling and I asked her quickly, “Did you wash your hands?” Her response was immediate. It was an instinctual “Yes!” Then, she looked down at them and smelled them both just to be sure. We are all guided by instincts and have an initial reaction or response that requires no thinking. We just react. Kids also are considerable models for how instinctual people can be. They haven’t had time to learn everything and they simply act in their own best interest. They act to protect themselves, even if it is to stay out of trouble with a parent. Little Jacquie’s first response is to say her hands are clean, despite what actually happened in the restroom. She knows instinctually how to protect herself and immediately answers in a protective way. She’s not maliciously answering, only protecting herself.

We all have instinctual responses to stimuli before we move on to the more rational thinking. And, that instinctual response is centered on what’s in our own best interest and what best protects us. Even arguments are usually the byproduct of instinctual reactions. If you take the time to dissect or think rationally about the argument topic, you usually defuse the emotions and get to a more productive conversation. All this can be useful in communicating with others, especially others you want to act. If you speak to people about everyone’s favorite topic, themselves, then you can get heard. If you speak to them about their fears and pain and how to “protect” themselves, then you can spur action. David Cain works at Magnitude, a sales and marketing company. Contact David at David.Cain@

Menchie’s opens first Indiana location in Noblesville

By Robert Herrington • Local entrepreneur Jeff Renbarger recently opened the newest and tastiest business to open in Noblesville – Menchie’s, the leading chain of self-serve frozen yogurt stores, at 13170 Harrell Pkwy. The Hamilton Town Center location is also the first Menchie’s to open in Indiana. “It’s pretty exciting to be the first one in Indiana, and Noblesville is the perfect area for it,” Renbarger said. Menchie’s is a unique frozen yogurt brand that places a strong emphasis on the experience its guests live every time they visit a store. Offering a vibrant atmosphere complete with party rooms, chalkboards and bright colors, Menchie’s encourages families to come in and spend a memorable, fun-filled day together. “It’s a fun escape. Every guest gets a gift besides the yogurt before they leave,” Renbarger said. Menchie’s guests help themselves to an unlimited mix of yogurt and toppings at a unique self-serve station with more than 100 rotating yogurt flavors from cake batter and pomegranate tart to chocolate silk and vanilla snow, and more than 70 rotating toppings including fresh fruits, granolas, nuts, an assortment of candies and hot fudges. Renbarger said the Noblesville store has 21 choices available each day. “Some flavors – like vanilla, chocolate and original tart – we don’t rotate,” he said. Instead of using mixes, Renbarger said an executive chef oversees the Menchie’s unique product line of private branded yogurt. The store also provides healthier alternatives by offering nonfat, low-fat, no-sugar added and low-carb options. “We really have about everyone covered,” said Renbarger, adding Menchie’s uses the highestquality frozen yogurt and contains live and active cultures, and is endorsed by the National Yogurt Association.

Instead of having set sizes and prices, the weight of frozen yogurt and toppings determines the cost. Renbarger said each ounce is 45 cents and waffle cones are an additional $1. Menchie’s is also actively involved in the communities it serves by partnering in fundraising activities and education incentive programs. Each Menchie’s store donates thousands of dollars in cash and products annually to local schools to support student programs. “We really believe in getting involved in the community with schools and churches,” explained Renbarger. “We give 20 percent back to the groups.” Menchie’s Hamilton Town Center, 13170 Harrell Pkwy., Noblesville, is open 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. Sunday through Thursday and 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. Friday and Saturday.

Behind the scenes: Home tour Design by Vicky Earley

I believe when Charles Dickens wrote, “It was the best of times, it was the worst of times,” he was deep in the throes of participating in a charity home tour. We are participating in the Lost Run Farms “Homes of Distinction” home tour with just a couple of months left to complete the process. I can say I have experienced and learned more from this process than from all the years of experience that came before. I truly believe the secret to a successful beginning in a show home, fit for the world to judge, is recognizing it is a jigsaw puzzle where each and every piece has to be gingerly and thoughtfully placed. The “plan” has to begin when the design staff can still walk between the support beams of the new construction. This is the point when decisions can be made without the urgency of the builder on the phone saying, “I need it today!” The “plan” begins with an inspiration. This inspiration can be as simple as a fabric or a piece of art. From this mustard seed, an entire house will grow. The skeleton of the “plan” is always comprised of constants. These are immovable and unchangeable constraints at the point of design firm entry. The style, floor plan and elevation of the structure were our major constants.

The “feel” of the house is embedded in these constants. A modern structure will not ask to be decorated with traditional furnishings and a Cape Cod look might feel awkward if forced to wear minimalist furnishings. Inspiration can be a piece of art. It can be a breathtaking rug. Ours was a textile that offered a color palette complex enough to be interesting. The palette supplies the extension of colors repeated in a variety of values to achieve flow and tempo in the décor. With two months before the doors swing open for the world to view our months of imagining, testing, trying, scratching, starting, considering and implementing, we are beginning to see the picture in the puzzle come together. I think even the most seasoned designer can be humbled and almost brought to its knees by the moment when the vision becomes reality. It is probably due to the enormity of a seed of a vision developing into a stunning 6,000-squarefeet structure … complete with every interior and exterior detail tended to.

The Skin You’re In Snakeskin is making a comeback on the fashion scene this season! Snakeskin works on purses, belts, shoes, bags, and more. Snakeskin is best worn with solid colors, as it should only be an accent. To avoid a fashion faux paux, don’t try to wear python head to toe. Remember to be playful, this is a fun print and although it has a bohemian feel to it, it can also express glamour and style.

Pastels for Spring Looking for a way to add those perfect spring pastels without looking like an Easter egg? The key is to pick and choose pieces wisely. The perfect pairings are always achieved with a less-is-more attitude. Here are three of our favorite ways to add a pastel color to your wardrobe. · A fun statement necklace. Pick from a large coral pendant or a chunky resin piece in sea foam. · A leather clutch in any soft color can be the perfect way to spruce up your look, good for in the day or evening. · A watch with a pastel colored leather band is another way to go. Choose one with a gold face, which complements the light colors particularly well.

Pink Is The New Black Substitute your staple ‘little black dress’ with a brighter version this spring. Go pink! Below are listed 10 simple ways to style your LPD for spring to help you get the most mileage out of this new trendy staple: 1. Be bold. Keep the look simple by pairing it with bold, solid colored accessories such as cerulean blue heels or an orange clutch. 2. Nab some neon. Contrast your LPD with an oversize Day-Glo bib necklace or a braided neon rope bracelet. Keep the rest of the outfit balanced by complementing it with neutral pieces such as nude flats. 3. Add some edge. Pink may be sweet, but it doesn’t mean you can’t make it a little sour. Offset the girly hue with a leather jacket and black booties. 4. Keep it sleek. Pull your hair into a high pony and accessorize with black pumps and an oversize black clutch for an understated take on chic sleek. 5. Dress it down. When the weekend calls, make it casual with neutral flats or sandals, an oversize cardigan and an unstructured bag. 6. Make it posh. Bring your LPD out for a night on the

town by wearing it with strappy heels and adorning it with a crystal brooch. If it’s chilly out, layer with a bouclé jacket. 7. Layer away. Top off the dress with a crewneck sweater and a sharp jacket for an eclectic, layered look. 8. Go boho. For a down-to-earth vibe, style it with a fringe-trimmed scarf, a cute jacket and a relaxed cross-body bag. Finish it off with scrunched boots or studded sandals. 9. Work it. Take your LPD to the office by pairing it with a blazer, a belt and simple pumps. 10. Get waisted. Add some structure to your LPD by cinching the waist with a belt. By changing the silhouette, you can make it feel like an entirely new dress!

Retrofit, repurpose to the rescue Commentary by Randy Sorrell

The art and appreciation of retrofit continues to grow. Initially, its popularity was economically driven. Happy homeowners wanted to improve their outdoor living space, but tight wallets didn’t allow for draining the bank account or tapping home equity lines. Fashionable Now, after gobs of successful redone projects where original patios remained and added to, and society became comfortable with working with what we have, retrofits just seem both smart and fashionable. Lending credibility to the process is the burning trend of rescue/reuse/ recycle where forgotten chandeliers in the attic are repurposed as cool hanging light effects infused with candles, and once ugly peeling iron fence sections become historic features for climbing vines (done them both). Sure, our industry thrives on ripping out everything, designing bright and shiny ultimate backyard retreats and installing them as a blank slate. But, not everyone or every home needs that. There is something very satisfying about “solutioneering” the old to something completely new and livable.

Landscape The featured picture is a perfect retrofit example. Mature spruce trees and stately boxwood will remain in the landscape, but the tired creeping junipers and crimson pygmy barberries will be replaced, likely with something a little more refined for this elegant Carmel residence. I can imagine a stately bed of pachysandra with a variegated hosta border for the shady area. A trio of pink hydrangea would offer prolonged flowering and nice fall color if we select the glowing embers variety. Landscape retrofits are not always appropriate and can be more challenging than working with existing concrete patios, walks, porches, stone columns and other hardscape elements. Scale is a major issue. With mature trees and shrubs remaining, newly planted items often don’t look visually appealing and seem out of place, even after years of growth. The art of retrofit is similar to the art of luxurious outdoor living. It takes consideration, moderation and imagination to be successful.

Indoors Tile: Sure-footed shower floor luxury INSIDE & OUT

Mark one thing off your spring Honey-do list! Call Poo Patrol Today!

Remodeling by David Decker

Certain home construction materials in certain applications just naturally provide a secure, confident, luxurious feel, and it’s hard to explain exactly why. I’d put stone tile shower flooring right at the top of that list. Beautiful and spa-like, wet stone feels great underfoot. Specially cut and contoured, tile is the top choice when it comes to putting down a new shower floor. What’s especially dramatic is the difference between standing on a new tile floor, and the old experience of standing in a fiberglass tub bottom or on the hard-painted finish of a traditional cast iron bathtub. The first never feels quite solid, and the second can be dangerously slick. And let’s mention the “up and over” step into a tub can be perilous, not to mention overly athletic, in the drowsy first moments of the day. Customers routinely tell us it is the easy entry, solid feeling, no-slip excursion into an updated and redesigned shower that is the piece de resistance, the sensual highlight, of a custom bathroom improvement project. It’s no wonder shower/tub combinations are disappearing from master bathrooms in favor of larger, glass-enclosed or even European-style (no shower walls)

units that make the bathroom a special, relaxing and cozy sanctuary. Tile shower flooring can be composed of ceramic, porcelain, glass or other materials beside stone. While standard flooring tiles can be slick when wet, shower flooring is typically contoured or treated to enhance traction. It also tends to be installed in smaller pieces to accommodate shaping for slope and drainage, and the smaller pieces mean more grout joints, which provide even more traction. Professional installation is nearly a must because water is difficult to contain and persistently goes unwanted places creating mold, mildew and leak issues. Installed improperly, a tile shower floor is a permanent headache. Installed properly, a tile shower floor is a permanent luxury and a sure-footed good vibe.
