Current Publishing, LLC All Rights Reserved. 30 South Range Line Road Carmel, IN 46032 317.489.4444 The views of the columnists in Current in Westfield are their own and do not necessarily reflect the positions of this newspaper.

Hamilton County officials detailed the new Hamilton County Jail expansion project during a ground-breaking ceremony April 10 at the site on the north side of the jail, 18102 EVENT Cumberland Rd., Noblesville. Phase I construction of the expansion project is scheduled to begin this month, and the $13.5 million project is expected to be complete in April 2019. The first phase will add 120 beds. Phase II, which costs just less than $4 million, will add an additional 136 beds. Hamilton County commissioners are waiting for additional funds to begin Phase II. The Hamilton County Jail originally was built in 1993 to hold 296 inmates. Jail population is now nearing 400 inmates. “I think it’s important to note that Hamilton County is not only one of the fastest-growing counties in the state, but also one of the largest counties as well with a population of over 360,000, which is expected to double in size by 2050,” Hamilton County Commissioner Mark Heirbrandt said. “I think the success we’ve had is really attributed to the collaborative efforts we have with the mayors and all our towns

here, and we work well together to make Hamilton County one of the safest counties not only in the state of Indiana, but in the United States.” In addition to the extra beds, the expansion will have an interior recreation area, a classroom and a medical support area. Dining space will be accommodated in existing space in the old jail. The new addition to the jail will have 11 cell pods with 84 cells consisting of two- and four-man cells. Hamilton County Sheriff Mark Bowen outlined how House Bill 1006, passed in January 2016, affected the jail’s population and the need for expansion. The legislation requires Level 6 felons to serve their terms in county jails rather than state prisons. Bowen said the county tried to mitigate the growth during the past 25 years, such as moving female inmates to the juvenile center. “We have done all we can do, and as the county continues to grow and expand and issues continue to rise, we have no choice but to break ground on a new building,” Bowen said. “We need to be prepared for the future.” For more, visit

Council hears Wheeler Landing The Westfield City Council met April 9 and heard two introductions and selected council member Mark Keen DEVELOPMENT to serve on the Riverfront License Review Committee. Eric Douthit of Church, Church, Hittle and Antrim introduced The Wheeler Landing Planned Unit Development to the city council. The proposal is comprised of 321 acres split into four different areas at Ind. 32 and Wheeler Road. It proposes a change of zoning to allow for a development that would include mixed-use retail, pedestrian amenities, a plaza, dense housing, office space and a light industrial, research and technology park. “The Wheeler family wants to create a development that will be one of the jewels here in town, and they are really focused on creating something to work for generations to come,” Douthit said. Council members didn’t express concern about the project. “I do appreciate the efforts of the developer and owners to take the time. We met

Council member Cindy Spoljaric raised a question regarding the materials to be used for the signs and if the signs were internally lit. Sprague said some of the signs were internally lit. “What they’re proposing isn’t out of scale with the building,” Economic Director Matt Skelton said. “Our standards don’t meet up well with a building like this.” The next council meeting is scheduled for 7 p.m. April 23 at City Hall, 130 Penn St. For more, visit



The Westfield City Council met April 9 and heard an amendment to the Junction Planned Unit Development RIVERVIEW to allow for signs at the new Riverview Health Westfield Hospital. The amendment would modify the sign standards. Riverview Health is requesting multiple signs that will cover more area than the maximum 500-square-foot space currently allowed by the City of Westfield. Kristen Sprague of Sign Craft Industries made a presentation to the council. “We are working with Riverview Health on updating the Junction PUD to allow for the proposed signage plan for the new hospital facility going in here at (U.S.) 31 and (Ind.) 32,” Sprague said. “We are proposing quite a few wall signs over the maximum square footage of 500 allowed for signage and two ground signs on the corner of 31 and 32 and an entrance sign when you enter the parking lot.” Sprague detailed other signs, such as directional signs, wall signs and two logos on either ends of the hospital’s tower. The plan also includes emergency and parking signs.

DAR hosts veterans breakfast






The Horseshoe Prairie Chapter, National Society Daughters of the American Revolution, recently hosted a RECOGNITION Veterans Appreciation Breakfast as part of the commemoration of the 50th anniversary of deployment of U.S. troops to Vietnam and the 40th anniversary of the final withdrawal of U. S. troops from Vietnam. The local DAR chapter each year recognizes “Welcome Home Vietnam Veterans Day,” dedicated to honoring the sacrifices of Vietnam veterans who were denied a proper welcome upon returning home more than 40 years ago.

The U.S. Congress has designated March 29 as National Vietnam War Veterans Day. The March 24 breakfast was held at the Noblesville Township Community Center. Korean War and World War II veterans joined the event. Refreshments were served by the Horseshoe Prairie Chapter. Music was provided by local musician Bruce McMahon and a presentation was given by Jeremy Oesterling with Indy Honor Flight, an organization dedicated to coordinating travel for veterans to Washington, D.C. to visit memorials for World War II and the Korean and Vietnam wars.

Golden K Club finds new home for woodshop in Westfield By Anna Skinner • The Carmel Kiwanis Golden K Club woodworkers are back to making sawdust, this time in a new home. COVER STORY The group, which has crafted toys for nonprofits to give to children during the holidays since 1942, previously worked out of Janus Developmental Services for eight years. Janus wanted to expand some of its other programs, causing the woodworkers to search for a new home. They found one in a 1,600-square-foot barn on the outskirts of Westfield at 21109 Horton Rd. The woodworkers’ lease at Janus expired in May 2017, and since then, their materials have been in storage. When the electrical installation is complete, the whine of saws crafting toys will once again fill the air. Woodworker and Golden K Club member Roger Rew said the woodworkers partner with Central Indiana Woodworkers. CIWW works with various groups across the state, though Rew said the Carmel club is the only Kiwanis-affiliated woodworker group with the organization. “We make toys all year long and put them in storage. Then on the first of December we have a Pick and Pack, where about 35 nonprofit (organizations) request toys from (CIWW), which gives us a list of how many toys are needed,” Rew said. Toys range from wooden trains to airplanes. Last year, CIWW distributed 12,000 toys to central Indiana nonprofits. The Golden K Club contributed approximately 2,200 of that number. The group typically makes 3,000 toys a year, but with the lack of a woodshop, the woodworkers were crafting toys from their own basements most of last year.


The woodshop is home to more than just a work space. It also is a place for retired woodworkers to socialize. “Many Kiwanis don’t have a workshop but are woodworkers,” Golden K Club member Rallie Murphy said. “As people retire or downsize, they lose their woodshop. A woodworker who has been a woodworker for so long gets sawdust withdrawals, so

they come here and make all the sawdust they want.” Woodworkers aren’t required to be members of the Golden K Club, but it is a recruitment avenue for those who aren’t. Woodworkers can even work on their own projects in the shop. Rew said the club only asks that they participate in toy-making, too. Last year, the group donated a combined 500 hours a month to toy-making.


Rew said camaraderie and satisfaction in a job well-done are important to the club’s 16 members. “At the end of the year, when we go to the Pick and Pack, it’s just seeing how many toys are distributed to the agencies,” he said. “Other agencies are in line to come

be a part of the group (CIWW), but there’s just not enough toys.” By moving location, Murphy said he hopes

THE WOODSHOP’S TIMELINE • 1942: Kiwanis Club member Bob Udell starts making toys in his basement. • Late-1980s: The woodshop outgrows Udell’s basement and moves to a rental space in the Fishers area. • 2000: The shop moves to a space at Fishers Automatic Pool Covers. • 2009: The shop moves to Janus Developmental Services in Noblesville. • 2018: The shop moves to a barn at 21009 Horton Rd., just outside of Westfield.

to attract more woodworkers. Twenty-five percent of the club’s members are female. “We hope to get more woodworkers from Sheridan and Westfield by moving up here,” Rew said.


The Golden K Club has the funds to assist the woodworkers in their efforts, but the woodshop has proven to be self-sufficient through its outreaches. “If someone comes in and asks to fix a chair or table, we charge for the materials and ask for a donation,” Rew said. The arrangement allows the group to purchase its own supplies, like sandpaper and glue. Woodworkers also make furniture on request, but their main focus is always on toys.

Countdown to summer


Travel mirror

Commentary by Danielle Wilson

Commentary by Terry Anker With each trip planned and each itinerary booked, we can find ourselves stretched between excitement and anxiety. Even as we eagerly anticipate the chance to break away from our daily routines and find solace in an exotic locale, often unknown to us but for our imaginations, we can harbor a bit of secret apprehension. New foods, new beds, new climates, new languages – each deliver to us an unsettling dose of, well, new. We like what we have – that’s why we have it. Still, we seek something more. Perhaps it is part of our human condition. What we have is never as good as what we want – which is never as good as what we have. The paradox is most confusing. Yet, we cannot find a substitute. Even in a world of social media, virtual reality and Asian-fusion, travel is the most direct way to understand a culture and, perhaps, lower our defenses just a bit. Famed Hollywood actress Shirley MacLaine is attributed with noting that, “The more I traveled, the more I realized that fear makes strangers of people who should be friends.” Shared human experience, in Istanbul or Rio, serves best to help us find our commonality and to celebrate our difference. One travels to learn about others. But, that education does not stand alone. Very often, we learn more about ourselves. At first, one might wonder why they eat what they eat, do what they do, or live like they live. Then, in a moment of reflection, the question is turned inward. When observing them in a strange land, the questions come easily. What might the mirror say if we asked it the same? Terry Anker is an associate editor of Current Publishing, LLC.

READER’S VIEW Trustee incumbent a fine choice Editor, Who is this stranger running against our fine Township Trustee (Danielle Carey Tolan) in the May primary? I cannot find anyone in Westfield who has seen her at public meetings. She suddenly appeared in a TV interview two weeks ago implying she wants to stop the huge successes since 2007 when our downtown was dying. She does not know that Westfield development is not the jurisdiction of the township. Her uninformed public words are exceedingly insulting. How dare she pass judgement on downtown Westfield’s development by claiming a “citizen task force” needs to be formed to review the plan (I should let her live with her ignorance). I’ll tell you that the plan is 100 percent citizen-produced. The Grand Junction Task Group (all resident volunteers) has met hundreds of times over the last 14 years. We’ve worked with consultants,

listened and discussed – all attendees voted, usually unanimously. The city studied and adopted our proposal. The history is Westfield Washington Township’s 2007 Comprehensive Plan worked out by over 200 citizens) called for a “special study group” to propose an old town development plan. Ken Kingshill put together a group of eight of us. We invited any resident who would attend and participate to join us, and we grew to many. Tolan’s challenger does not by her own words know anything about the city. So, some have looked up her record, and apparently she has voted in only two primary elections in the last 10 years – one Democrat, one Republican. Please vote for Danielle Carey Tolan, the finest Township Trustee imaginable, on May 8, to continue her great Township work and cooperation with the city. Mic Mead, Westfield

Sing with me and the lead from Europe: “It’s the fi-nal count-down!” We’re in the home stretch, people. The final countdown to summer. Six weeks or so HUMOR until late mornings, homeworkfree nights and, God willing, warm weather become the norm. I’m not sure why I need June to get here so badly, but these last few months have been exhausting. Anyone else? For me, it’s been a slow, almost imperceptible build-up of teaching and parenting stresses combined with schizophrenic weather that has me longing for a beach and a mai tai. But I didn’t realize how tired and overwhelmed I was until spring break because like most moms, I just kept pushing forward, regardless of my own state of mind. After a short weekend in New York City with one of my twins to check out some colleges and stand in line for hours to enjoy a milkshake/cookie dough/Statue of Liberty (in order of priority), I immediately lost a fight to a nasty cold and subsequently did nothing except sneeze and mainline Netflix’s Santa Clarita Diet for 72 hours. By Thursday, I was finally able to tackle the long-neglected yard work, taxes and actually cook a non-Kraft dinner, but was in bed by 8:30 almost every night. Not exactly the break I had planned, but clearly much-needed. So, as I look ahead to these last few weeks of school, I’m hoping I can make it to May 30. The sun is shining today, which is a good sign, and homework for my kiddos should subside as exams approach. At the very least, I now have a mantra: “It’s the final countdown!” Peace out.

Now hear this Commentary by Dick Wolfsie Last week, I had my annual physical. I was sitting in the waiting room filling out a form HUMOR Titled, “A SIMPLE TEST TO SEE IF YOU HAVE HEARING LOSS.” Here are a few questions, verbatim: “Do others complain that you watch TV with the volume too high?” My wife comes into the bedroom while I’m watching Colbert and says, “I can’t believe how loud this is.” I know she is saying that, because I can read lips. “Do you have to sit up front in church to understand the sermon?” I’m Jewish, but when I was a kid in Hebrew school, I cut class all the time. Even when my hearing was perfect, I didn’t have a clue what the rabbi was talking about. “Do you have difficulty understanding women?” The questionnaire says some loss is so gradual you don’t even know you have a problem unless someone brings it to your attention. Gee, I wonder who that would be? “Do you have trouble understanding children?” Babies? Not a word. Toddlers? Not a problem. Teenagers? Not a clue. “Do you know where sounds come from?” This is a trick, like the “tree falling in the forest” question. Here’s another: If your spouse is complaining about something and you can’t hear the griping, is there still a problem? “Can you hear people in another room?” No. That is the main reason I went into another room.  “Have others mentioned that you don’t seem to hear them?” Maybe, but I was probably in another room at the time. “Do you avoid family meetings because you can’t understand the conversations?” No, I avoid family meetings because in the words of Hoosier humorist Kin Hubbard, “There is plenty of peace in a home where the family doesn’t make the mistake of trying to get together.” “Do you have ringing in your ears?” Occasionally. But I realized the noise meant there was someone at the front door.

Relationships affect our health Commentary by Dr. Nicole Phillips Although personal relationships have a significant impact on our life, we often don’t think about the YOUR HEALTH influence they have on our health. Studies show that people involved in positive relationships with family and friends tend to be happier and live longer than people who are isolated. As we look for ways to manage and improve personal health, it’s worth considering how our relationships affect our physical health and emotional well-being. Certainly, there can be positive effects. For example, if we surround ourselves with people who eat healthy and exercise, we’re more likely to adopt the same behaviors. Relationships also can result in negative consequences. Although every situation is different, here are some common health concerns that can be influenced by family and social relationships. Depression – Although this condition has many causes, unstable relationships with family members and close friends can contribute to depression. Frequent negative interactions with spouses and children can cause mood swings and emotional distress that over time may affect physical health. Weight management – Managing weight is easier when individuals spend time with people who eat healthy. Conversely, when

we’re around people who overindulge, it’s tempting to follow along. Social outings with friends and co-workers often take place at restaurants, which typically means larger portions and food selections that are higher in calories and less nutritious. Alcohol and drug use – Again, it’s more likely that people will engage in unhealthy behaviors, such as heavy drinking or drug use, when they spend time with others who do the same. Although this can occur at any age or life stage, it can be more common with teenagers and young adults. The first step to making positive changes is to identify and acknowledge when a relationship is negatively impacting health and well-being. A primary care provider is a good resource for exploring possible solutions, which may include referrals for counseling or connecting individuals to community resources or support groups. If isolation is an issue, volunteering or joining a social group are great ways to meet people. Relationships are an essential part of life, so it’s important to establish and nurture the ones that provide the greatest joy. Dr. Nicole Phillips specializes in internal medicine.

DISPATCHES New sugar labeling — If you are watching your sugar intake, you’ll be glad to know that new nutrition labeling should help. Beginning in July, the amount of added sugar will be expressed separately in grams and as a percentage of a daily value. The label also will display calories per serving, and serving size, more prominently. Source: Fast food addictive — The majority of Americans get more than half of their calories from fast food, which includes all junk foods and most convenience foods. Fast foods can be as addictive as cocaine and other drugs. The food is digested and absorbed quickly, causing a surge of dopamine, a pleasure enhancing neuro-transmitter. To repeat and sustain these pleasurable feelings, you desire and eat more fast food. Source: Joel Fuhrman, MD Statin drugs and diabetes — If you’re a woman over age 75, statin drugs may

be much more likely to give you diabetes than researchers ever suspected. A recent study focused on more than 8,000 women showed that those on statins were 33 percent more likely to develop type 2 diabetes. If you take statins, discuss the options with your doctor to lower your risk of diabetes.

Goodwin, Ziobro join Feinstein for Songbook reunion at Palladium By Mark Ambrogi • For Julia Goodwin and Nick Ziobro, this concert venue is a home away from home. “The Palladium is where CONCERT I first fell in love with the Great American Songbook,” Goodwin said. “I always say it is one of my favorite venues to perform at, and I feel so at home whenever I return.” Goodwin, the 2013 Songbook Ambassador, and Nick Ziobro, 2012 Songbook Ambassador, will join Michael Feinstein in concert at 8 p.m. April 21 at The Palladium at the Center for the Performing Arts in Carmel. “The audience can expect to see the two of us returning to the place where it all began for us, celebrating the music that made us who we are,” Ziobro said. “I can’t wait to step back on stage at the Palladium with Michael. The Palladium always feels like home every time we come back to perform, and it’s really exciting to be there with Michael, where it all began with the Songbook Academy.” Feinstein is the founder of the Great American Songbook Foundation and artistic director for the Center for the Performing Arts. “Michael is an undeniably incredible talent, mentor and friend. It is always a pleasure working with him,” Goodwin said. “Nick and I have each been very fortunate to perform with Michael many times over the years. Michael has taken us under his wing to places such as Carnegie Hall, 54 Below, Jazz at Lincoln Center and more.” Ziobro said Feinstein has been an amazing mentor on those experiences, offering guidance and advice. As the duo Nick and Julia, Goodwin and Ziobro have been performing together for a little more than three years. “However, we’ve known each other since a very young age through community theater involvement,” Goodwin said. Goodwin, 19, is from Baldwinsville, N.Y., and a sophomore at Syracuse University. Ziobro, 21, is from Syracuse, N.Y., and graduated from Rider University.

“We’ve known each other for years because we are from the same hometown. However, we didn’t start performing as a duo until about December 2014, so a little over three years,” Ziobro said. They met performing in a “13” musical. Goodwin said she was in awe of Ziobo’s talent and they clicked immediately as friends. “I had heard of Julia before because when she was really young she was a local celebrity,” Ziobro said. “She had some viral Youtube hits, and everyone was really excited to meet her. We performed together onstage in ‘13’ in 2011. Seven years later

Artists’ organization holds event By Rick Morwick • Carmel resident Laura LaForge is a selftrained artist who eschewed formal training because art would never pay any ART bills. Or so she thought. “I have never taken an art class because I was told I can’t make a living with art. However, here I am today, creating art full-time for the last 20 years,” said LaForge, a versatile artist whose work will be on display at the Stutz Artists Association Open House Silver Anniversary Celebration in Indianapolis April 26 to 28. More than 60 studios filled with unique artwork will be showcased at the Stutz Business and Arts Center, 212 W. 10th St. The event kicks off April 26 with a Silver Celebration preview from 6:30 to 10 p.m., followed by the two-day Open House, 5:30 to 10:30 p.m. April 27 and 1 to 5 p.m. April 28. Artists and the building, a 400,000-square-foot former car factory, will be adorned in silver. Each artist will have a unique work inspired by silver. Paintings, photography, furniture, sculptures, murals and jewelry are among the many items that will be on display and available for purchase.

LaForge, who works in several mediums, is participating in her 18th Stutz Open House. Her husband, Jim Mitchell, assists with some of her creations. Her daughter, Tayler Mitchell, is the inspiration for many of them. Sponsored by Raymond James, the Stutz Open House supports the Stutz Residence Program. Admission is $12. Tickets are available at the Stutz Business Office, 1060 N. Capital Avenue, Suite C200 in Indianapolis, or can be purchased online at stutzartists. com.

CCP presents ‘Ragtime’ By Mark Ambrogi • “Ragtime the Musical” is based on a 1975 novel about the early 1900s but still has relevance today. MUSICAL That’s one reason Rich Phipps is pleased the Carmel Community Players is presenting the musical. Phipps, a CCP board member, will appear in the six performances of the musical April 20 to 29 at the Ivy Tech Auditorium in Noblesville. “Even though the story is set in New York at the turn of the 20th Century, it deals with important themes that are very relevant today, such as immigration issues, racial discrimination and social justice,” Phipps said. “It has some serious subject matter and some rough language, but we hope that parents will not hesitate to bring their children and then have some important dialogue at home. I love the way the story weaves in some historical figures such as Booker T. Washington, Evelyn Nesbit, Henry Ford and others. And everyone can enjoy the magnificent musical score which won the 1998 Tony Award.” Director Doug Peet, a Carmel dentist, said the show is very topical. “The show is about racism and ethnic

prejudice, people from privilege, and it’s about three stories from each of these groups,” Peet said. “It ends with a really nice message.” Phipps, a Carmel resident, plays the father of the upper-class family in New Rochelle. This is the CCP’s first show since losing its Playhouse at Clay Terrace. Although that is disappointing, Phipps said it is a blessing for the show since it is a much bigger venue, with a larger stage.  For more, visit

I’ll be the first to admit I didn’t understand or enjoy much of the Shakespeare assigned to me in GRAMMAR GUY high school. I hope that doesn’t ruin my reputation with my fellow word nerds. On the other hand, I love how Shakespeare invented words that are still common in our modern lexicon, including wormhole, swagger and skim milk. Although word scholars now debate how many words he actually came up with, Shakespeare certainly knew a lot of words. That reminds me of a word duo that often gets mismatched and misused: a lot and allot. First, I want to get something out of the way and settled so we can get on with our lives: alot is not a word (unless you capitalize it and are referring to the town in India named Alot). The non-word “alot” often gets used instead of “a lot,” which means a large amount or large number. People mistakenly write things like “I know alot about robot movies.” In this sentence, the person should have written “a lot.” Allot is a verb that means to give out, distribute or divide. It doesn’t get used as

Imagine your home, totally organized!

much as its word cousin a lot, but it has its merits. Make sure to allot the same amount of Skittles to each child unless you want a riot on your hands. In this case, an even allotment can save you from a disastrous toddler turf war. I will say, we use the phrase “a lot” far too often. It’s vague and doesn’t add much pizzazz to your writing or speaking. Instead, consider words and phrases like a plenitude, several, heaps, an abundance and scads. As an adjective, “a lot” is a bland nothingburger (check your dictionary). The more inspiring words are like the little-used exotic spices in your spice rack that add variety and interest to your bowl of alphabet soup. By expanding your vocabulary, you make Shakespeare’s ghost proud. In conclusion, alot isn’t a word. Allot means to give out. A lot means a large amount, and it’s kind of boring. I challenge you to use something more interesting instead. You have a myriad of options. Curtis Honeycutt is a freelance humor writer. Have a grammar question?

Basilica of Santa Maria della Salute in Venice. (Photo by Don Knebel)

Miracle of the Salute Commentary by Don Knebel One of Venice’s brightest and most uplifting buildings remembers a dark period in its history, when it took a miracle TRAVEL to save the city. In 1630, a new outbreak of the bubonic plague hit Venice. A third of its population of 140,000 was soon dead and prayers from local churches had not stopped the dying. With the survivors desperate, the Venetian Senate appealed directly to Saint Mary, promising to build a magnificent church in her honor if the wave of death subsided. It did, and the Senate immediately initiated a competition for a suitable design. Baldassare Longhena, a 32-year-old Venetian architect, won the competition, proposing an ornate octagonal structure, topped by a massive dome and entered through a triumphal arch. According to Longhena, the octagonal shape, never before used for a church, symbolized Mary’s virginity and the overall look, suggesting a crown, honored her as Queen of Heaven. A site was selected at the end of the Grand Canal across the water from Saint Mark’s

Square. Before construction could begin, 100,000 piles were driven into the ground to support the foundation. Construction of the Basilica of Santa Maria della Salute (Saint Mary of Health) began in 1631 and was completed 50 years later. The interior of the basilica, commonly called Salute, contains numerous masterpieces by Titian, who lived in Venice in the 16th century. Much of the art suggests Venice’s miraculous deliverance from the plague. A black dot in the center of the floor, directly below the statue of Mary standing atop the dome’s lantern, is said to radiate healing energy. Every November 21, crowds walk on a temporary bridge built over the Grand Canal from Saint Mark’s Square to the Salute, where they celebrate Mary’s protection of the city. For Venetians and visitors alike, it is one of Venice’s most important days.
