DISPATCHES Click it or ticket – With Memorial Day approaching, the Hamilton County Sheriff’s Office is reminding drivers and passengers to buckle up every time they get into a vehicle. Officers will be working overtime until June 1 enforcing Indiana’s seat belt law. “Starting May 9, our officers began working overtime to see that motorists and passengers are properly restrained,” said spokesman Deputy Bryant Orem. “We have zero tolerance for not wearing a seat belt. Drivers and passengers who are not buckled up will receive a ticket.”

As a new way to stay in touch, the city has created the Westfield, technology Indiana app – available now for iPhone and Android users. “Westfield is growing and changing in so many different ways. This app is just another way for us to utilize technology to keep our residents and visitors stay connected to what’s going on,” Mayor Andy Cook said. “As Grand Park continues to draw more and more visitors, we as a city need to find creative ways to direct them to our restaurants and shops while they’re in town.” The app, which is free to download, is designed to showcase all that Westfield has to offer with the most up-to-date information on events, dining options, hotels and more. The Westfield app allows users to: • Easily navigate to their destination with interactive maps that provide turn-by-turn directions. • Contact information for schools, churches, hotels and more. • Visit websites for restaurants and view menus. • Quickly find information with the app’s search tool highlighting all of Westfield’s hot spots Communications Director Erin Verplank said a second app for Grand Park will be released in early June. “That app is for specific visitors to Grand Park to find fields, best places to park, etc.,” she said. “This app is really for the entire comVerplank munity – where to eat locally in Westfield, what to do, where the parks are – you can reintroduce yourself to Westfield.” Verplank said the communications department will

Or if 10,000 people are in town for a tournament,” she said. “It’s what people really want to know. Verplank said the app is still a work in progress. “Please let us know if something is missing. It is so easy to add to. We want to know people’s thoughts on it as well,” she said. “Nothing is set in stone by any means. It’s easy to update.” The Westfield, Indiana app is available on iTunes and Google Play Store.

Meet your teacher, Kristi Bruch Grade/subject: First grade, Maple Glen Elementary School Number of years teaching: 11 Background/schooling: Reitz Memorial High School, Evansville; bachelor’s in elementary education, Ball State University; and master’s in education, Ball State University. Why did you become a teacher? After teaching tennis to children in the summers during high school, I realized how much I enjoyed working with kids. What goals do you have for your students? My main goal is to teach my students to work hard in all they do. Hard work will help them reach their goals for the rest of their lives. What do you encourage parents to do at

home to help their children strengthen particular skills? Read to, with, and in front of your children to build a life-long love of reading. What is your favorite movie? Grumpy Old Men Who is your favorite musician or band? John Mellencamp What’s something your students might not know about you? When my high school tennis team won state, we got to ride on top of a fire truck back to the high school. It was both scary and exhilarating. You’d be amazed how close your head is to hitting the stop lights while sitting on top of a moving fire truck.

He added that the stadium • $7.5 million – The goal for the “Build the Rock” campaign to build the new stadium, locker rooms and main entrance, which will be shared with the existing soccer field. • 5,000 – Number of seats at the new community stadium. • 300 – Officials estimate more than 300 events a year could be held on the new artificial turf.

Shamrock Blvd.

Josh Miracle, assistant football coach and girls’ track and field coach, said IHSAA officials have informed him the track was “not really equipped to hold meets.” Miracle said this year a Noblesville pole-vaulter broke a leg, a middle school hurdle fell on her face from protruding concrete and a meet against Fishers High School was canceled because the start line was under water. The distance to the facility from the high school also is an issue for students and in case of injuries. “It takes 20 minutes to jog or ride over to the track. That equates to 13 days over the year,” he said. Football coach Jake Gilbert said his team and the community can reach higher to make Westfield a world-class city. “There are so many things we do in the community to bring people together, but never are there more people together than there are at a high school Gilbert football game,” he said. “I think it was a necessity. It’s huge for the future of Westfield in terms of meeting our full potential. They did what’s best for the city and schools. I’m so proud of our government for doing that.” Gilbert said the grass field is overused, but the new artificial field could host more events for all sports, clubs and student organizations. While the current stadium until the new one the stadium is not expected to be complete until is built. the 2015 track and field season, hopes are to “I’d love our seniors to get an opporplay some football games at the new stadium tunity to play on it,” Gilbert said. “Either this fall. way, it is going to be great. It’s not a “We hope some football games will be played dream, it’s a reality.” there this fall. Not in August but some playoff History games,” Westfield Washington Schools Supt. Dr. The current stadium opened in the fall of Mark Keen said, adding games will remain at 1950, according to longtime Westfield resident U.S. 31

Standing in the back of the over capacity crowd of Westfield City Hall on May 12 was Pam Kainrath, parent of a Westfield senior, sophomore and first-grader. Wearing a green T-shirt, Kainrath held a sign with two shamrocks and one word – YES. Kainrath’s poster Kainrath summed up the support and emotion many residents felt about the future realized through a partnership between the schools, city and local developers. For $2.5 million, the city is turning school land at the northeast corner of U.S. 31 and Ind. 32 into assessed value and taxes. The funding allows the district to accelerate its timetable to sell 9.6 acres to developers, build a new football stadium behind Westfield High School and provide the city with a new tax base, projected as at least $40 million. Reaction and the need Council President Jim Ake said he received almost 300 positive responses about the project since its proposal on April 28 and just one negative email, which did not state a reason why. “I don’t know of a better win-win than this,” he said. “We can help them without Ake any tax dollars being spent. Our investment will be returned to us in full and can be used later for other projects in the future. Who wins in this? I think it is our school system, our business community, the construction worker, the taxpayer and I think it is every Westfield citizen of any age.” Councilor Steve Hoover said 95 percent of his e-mails gave detailed reasons why the public supported the partnership. “I felt like the people were more informed on this issue than most issues we’ve ever done. I see no reason why this issue is not a win-win for everyone,” he said. WHS freshmen football players Justin Frey and Caleb Sanburn said the support about the new stadium was just as strong as the team’s run to the state championship in November. “I think it’s great. I’m super-excited,” Frey said. The players said the field, which is used by all teams, is in rough shape. “It’s complete trash, it’s terrible,” Sanburn said. “When it rains it is a mud pit.” “One muddy game on there and it’s done,” Frey said.

COMMUNITY not be forgotten,” WHS Athletic Director Bill Davis said, adding the project was 18 years in the making. “When the high school was brand new, there were future plans to get the stadium underway. In the past six to eight years it became a huge need for our kids.” The new stadium, which will have one major entrance shared with the soccer field, provides a better experience to players and fans and improves safety and supervision of young students. “We simply meet the Westfield needs and did not worry about any comparisons,” Davis said. WHS Principal Stacy McGuire said that something special is happening within her building and if the council invested in her students, they would not disappoint them. “They excel inside and outside of the classroom,” she McGuire said. “I want the very best for my kids because they deserve it.” McGuire, a WHS graduate, said the field her father played on in 1953 was “no longer adequate for these kids today.” “It’s disgraceful. It’s not about keeping up with the Jones’, it’s about providing our kids with something better,” she said. “I tell my kids great moments come from great opportunity. Have you had a greater moment to address our kids since you came on the board?”

ing space needs of students, parents, nearby residents and the entire Westfield community,” Zentz said. Zentz said the project includes five buildings on the area west of Shamrock Boulevard and three on the east side which will be developed at a later date. The Westside development includes two medical offices with mixed use including retail and restaurants on the first floor and office space and studios on the upper levels. The hotel, which could be the first in Westfield, is preferred to have large meeting space available to the public. The two other buildings include a standalone catering/meeting place and a large indoor family entertainment center with miniature golf, arcade, games and restaurant. Zentz said the project is estimated to provide $40 to $50 million of assessed value as well as numerous jobs to the city. WCI envisions construction beginning in 2015, or as otherwise determined by the school’s ability to relocate to new facilities. Councilor Rob Stokes said “The Junction” project faces two conditions with its rezoning request: no tax abatements or fee waivers would be accepted and any owners, tenants and developers would be for profit. “We include this because of the money being paid substantially up front,” he said.

Are you considering BUILDING A HOME? “The Junction” will provided a new signature look for the downtown gateway and is expected to spur other economic development in the area. (Submitted rendering)

‘The Junction’ development A group of Westfield developers have proposed a project called “The Junction” for the 14 acres that is currently home to the stadium, track, baseball fields and administration building. The signature gateway of U.S. 31 and Ind. 32 will include a medical office building, family entertainment center, hotel/meeting space, retail and fitness center. “It’s another option to serve our visiting guests of Grand Park,” said Randy Zentz of Westfield Community Investors, LLC. “We are very aware of the high profile intersection as the signature gateway.” Newly formed, WCI participants are Westfield residents, business owners and others who formed for the purpose of being long-term investors in Westfield property, with the school property as its only focus at this time. “We see an opportunity for that property not only to generate significant new tax revenue for the city and schools, but also to meet retail (restaurant and related services), medical and meet-

er funds to invest in future assessed value. “You will start getting back your investment within two-and-a-half to three years and then will be going forward with additional revenue,” Keen said. “The $2.5 million does not build a stadium. It gets us off the ground so the land can be developed.” Earlier this year, the district agreed to sell 14 acres just east of the U.S. 31-Ind. 32 interchange to a group of local Westfield investors. The 4.5 acres east of Shamrock Boulevard is where the administration office is and said the district has the ability to remain there for five more years. Mayor Andy Cook said funding for the project will come from the proceeds of the utility sale. He said the city would pay $1.5 million now and the other $1 million “when vertical improvements have begun.” “It is very interesting and rewarding to see so many people get behind this,” he said. “What was so enlightening was having our council work with our school board. It really shows what cooperation in government agencies can do.”

Commentary by Danielle Wilson

What if Clinton can’t or won’t run? It was an overly interesting and pinpointed question, whose answer could be packed with potential dire ramifications. Actually, we wish we had thought of it. Alas, Chris Stirewalt of Fox News First last week posed this revelatory enquiry: What if Hillary Rodham Clinton can’t (or won’t) run for the presidency? There are numerous queries about her health and age (only Ronald Reagan, one of our political heroes, was older than Clinton’s would-be election age of 69), and former George W. Bush stalwart Karl Rove clearly and politically discussed that. Fair or not, and we’re no fans of Clinton, Rove’s comments had to strike fear into the collective heart of the Democratic Party. If she cannot or will not run, who would be the candidate of choice? There is no obvious alternative, in our opinion, and it could spell the end for the Dems on the campaign trail. Of course, we’re counting on the Republican Party to royally screw up any chance it has of winning the presidency, so all in all it will make for really good theatre. ••• As of press time, we were awaiting additional details of Gov. Mike Pence’s Healthy Indiana Plan. You may have heard, Pence has decided against participating in the Affordable Care Act’s Medicaid expansion to cover the uninsured. From what we’ve heard, Pence’s program calls for a state-run, two-tiered plan for low-income Hoosiers, as opposed to federally run Medicaid. Tier One of Pence’s plan provides limited coverage at little to no cost. Tier Two includes dental and vision coverage but will have a cost associate with it. If, as Pence claims, this results in a more consumerdriven approach to health care, then we think it might make sense. Plus, if the Feds think it’s a bad idea, there must be merit to it. As we found out in the early rollout of Obamacare, the devil is in the details, so stay tuned as details of Pence’s program unfold.

Best place to call home

Commentary by Robert Herrington

The Movoto Real Estate Blog recently released its top 10 ranking of the best place to live in the state. It’s not surprising that four Hamilton County cities ranked in the top six, including Westfield. Mayor Andy Cook best summed up the feeling of residents, who have become accustomed to these type of awards. “The honor of being labeled one of the top 10 places to live in Indiana is not news to those who live here,” he said. “The latest recognition shows me we’re doing something right and we’re on the right track. Our visitors are starting to notice all the great things Westfield has to offer, from our trail system to Grand Park and soon it will be Grand Junction. More and more people are choosing Westfield to raise their families and I’ve never been more proud to call Westfield my home.” Like similar lists, Movoto collected data from sources including the U.S. Census and business listings. In this case, every place in Indiana with a population of at least 10,000 – a total of 76 places – was ranked in seven different criteria.

Those criteria were: total amenities; quality of life; total crimes; tax rates; unemployment; commute time and weather. Westfield, which ranked No. 6, was credited for its low unemployment rate (6.1 percent) and a summer temperature ranking that was “a very impressive third for that criteria.” Movoto described the city as: “Workers are paid what they deserve for their long commute times, at a median household income of $86,360. The crime rate here is quite low, and the quality of life is decently high, meaning that this is one safe and comfy little place to reside. Sports fan may find that Grand Park is the right kinda place for them. It’s intended to be a hub of activity and fun in this fairly small city.” Carmel was ranked first, Fishers was second and Noblesville places fourth. To read more, visit www.movoto.com.

QUOTE OF THE WEEK “Don’t judge each day by the harvest you reap but by the seeds that you plant.”

– Robert Louis Stevenson

Last year my husband and I had the amazing opportunity to travel to North Africa and Turkey. Thanks to a teacher humor grant, I studied Islamic culture and the history of mathematics in Marrakesh, Cairo and Istanbul. It was truly the trip of a lifetime. And with my newfound confidence in grant writing, I applied for what was sure to be an equally remarkable trip to Greece this year. Admittedly, this second proposal wasn’t my best work – I did only have three days to pull it together – but I still felt certain I would win. Like the classic John Cusack film, it was a sure thing. Despite my clever title “Greece Lightening: A High Speed Journey through the Isles of Mathematical Innovation,” I was denied. Now what was I supposed to do this summer? Doo shared my disappointment, as we had already booked a cave hotel on Santorini and planned our re-enactment of the original “Clash of the Titans” on Samos. Not to be undone, we regrouped and began looking for another vacation spot. Without a major philanthropic group to foot the bill, it had to be cheap. International travel was out, as was anything on a coast; the airfare was simply outrageous. We considered driving, but all of the cities within a few hours scored low on our interest scale. Chicago, Cincinnati, Louisville, St. Louis, Detroit? Been there, done that. Where was the adventure? Where was the exotic food and culture? Not in the Midwest, that’s for sure. So it seemed we’d be stuck in the northern ‘burbs of Indy come June. Bluh. Then, out of the blue, I received an email from Doo: “How about Trenton?” What? Where the hell is Trenton? “I can get us flights for $70 roundtrip!” Sold. Book it. And get me a map. Turns out Trenton, though not so lovely in and of itself, is very close to some rather picturesque towns like Princeton and Burlington. The city center is also on a light rail line that can have you in New York City in 90 minutes. So guess who’s going to Trenton, N.J., for a three day extravaganza? Sure, it’s not Greece, but I’m actually really excited about the weekend. I’ve never been to the area before, and I love discovering new places with my spouse. And any time away from the kids is a good time, even if it’s in New Jersey. Besides, going in to Manhattan for a day will probably feel like a foreign country when compared to Indiana. I don’t speak New Yorker, so mischief and mayhem are sure to abound. Next summer I’ll hopefully be reporting from Greece, but this year it’s Trenton, N.J. Peace out.

My wife was watching the news story about a Yankee pitcher who violated game rules by smearing some pine tar on his humor neck that he could then apply to the ball before each delivery. “Why did he do that?” asked Mary Ellen. “It gives him an advantage in controlling the pitch,” I explained. “Why is that bad? Wouldn’t it cut down on crazy pitches?” “You mean wild pitches. Yes, it might. But it’s illegal because… “Can the batter use this pine tar?” “Yes, the batter can but, but…” I was a stumped. Rules in sports are arbitrary and inconsistent. When the ball hits the sideline in basketball, it’s out of bounds. In baseball, it’s fair—keep running. Here are some more baseball questions from Mary Ellen last October that I couldn’t field: “Who is winning the World Series?” “It’s tied, two games apiece.” “Why do they play so many games? Why not play just one big one, like the Super Game?” “It’s the ‘Super Bowl.’ It’s different with football.” “Why?” “I have no idea. Just trust me.” I have another question. Why do they call it a

strike when the guy doesn’t strike it, but in bowling they call it a strike when he does?” “No clue.” “And why are there four balls and only three strikes?” “I don’t know. Hey, this is starting to sound like a Bob Newhart routine.” “Can you explain anything in baseball, Dick?” “Sure. I can explain the infield fly rule.” “Go for it.” “Okay! An infield fly is a fair fly ball that can be caught by an infielder with ordinary effort, when first and second, or first, second and third bases, are occupied, before two are out and…” ZZZZZzzzzzzzzz…“Now, I have one more question, Dick. When I ask you how much time is left in a football game so we can finally sit down to dinner, you sometimes say five minutes. Then 10 minutes later, it still says four minutes on the clock. Please explain that.” “Okay, Mary Ellen, how come when I ask you if you are ready to head out for a movie, you say two more minutes, and 20 minutes later, you say, ‘Almost ready’”? I had her speechless.

(Submitted photo)

By Ann Craig-Cinnamon • ann@youarecurrent.com For the twelfth year, the Town of Fishers is holding its popular Nickel Plate District summer concert series beginning in June. There are things about the event that have changed from past years, including music the venue and adding concerts on other nights, but the one thing that hasn’t changed has been the response. Town Manager Scott Fadness said the series is a keynote event in Fishers. “It’s one of those things that just kind of embodies what Fishers is all about; having four or five thousand people show up in downtown Fishers is just so exciting to see,” he said. “We hope this year is bigger and better than ever. If you’ve been by the amphitheater, everything looks great. The grass is green and we’re ready for summer to begin.” This will be the second year the series was conducted at the newlybuilt amphitheater. It provides a better venue for people to see the performers as well as better lighting and ambience, Fadness said. It also offers restrooms and concessions that the series didn’t have before. In addition to the Tuesday night concert series, the new Amp After Dark series on Friday nights is being introduced for a more adult audience. The Tuesday Night Concerts begin at 7 p.m., while the Amp After Dark shows on Fridays begin at 9 p.m. There are several special events scheduled including country music recording artists on select Thursdays and a

Blues Fest marked for Labor Day weekend. All concerts are free and kick-off on June 3 with the first Tuesday Night Concert featuring Soul Street. Highlights from the concert schedule include: • The Amp After Dark opening night will feature national recording artist Eric Lindell on June 6 • Country music recording artists Austin Webb with special guest Heather Michelle Chapman will perform June 5 • Jennie DeVoe will play The Amp After Dark on July 11 • The Chateau Thomas Blues Festival will be conducted Aug. 30 Parking may be different than in years past because of construction in downtown Fishers, but Fadness said there will be plenty of parking available that will have lots of signage and staff will be present to help. Concertgoers are welcome to walk or bike to the shows because the Nickel Plate District is pedestrian friendly and connected to trails throughout Fishers. People are encouraged to bring a blanket, a bottle of wine and a picnic and just enjoy the show. “I think that our summer concert series is really just the ultimate symbol of Americana and family values. If you’re looking for somewhere to take your family on a Tuesday night that will provide you with a true sense of community, then this is the right event and the right venue to come to,” Fadness said.

Plan for better nutrition

Commentary by Kathleen Connelly

You can feel it in the air, can’t you? Summer is coming and it is going to provide us with an abundance of opportunities to Fitness better our health! My family, just like a lot of us here in Fishers, is in full swing with spring sports, end-of-the-year school functions and planning for our summer break. The other week when we had two baseball games at the ballpark, dance rehearsal and soccer I thought to myself, “This is crazy – sandwiches again!” I know there a lot of moms just like me who want to provide their kids with good, nutritional food and sometimes trying to accomplish that with a hectic family schedule is difficult. However, there are ways! Prepping and planning for what you want for your family’s health is just as important as the actions themselves. If you know it will be a busy week, cook a larger meal on the weekend and then put leftovers in the fridge or freezer for a different night. On Sunday, decide what meals you will cook during the week and make sure you have the items needed for each meal. Last Sunday, we ate from a more dinner-like menu at lunch and had a lunch-type menu for dinner since we had football games that evening. Sometimes I even cook a meal for the following evening at night after the kids go to bed. One of my prepping activities for the week is to chop vegetables and bag them up

so they are ready to go for lunches. Have you tried the Fishers Farmers Market? It is now being held each Saturday morning from 8 a.m. to noon at the Nickel Plate Park. It is a great way to pick out fresh and organic products to use in next week’s meals. Take the kids along and let them help make some decisions. My kids love getting involved in choosing what fruits or vegetable we have for the week! Trust me, I know how busy life can get but there are ways to make our health a priority. Start trying to prep in advance for meals, prepack snacks and lunches and visit the Fishers Farmers Market. Lastly, give yourself a break! Even I need to remind myself some weeks that having sandwiches are okay because the kids think it is fun to have a picnic dinner! Kathleen M.

Simple planning can add cushion Commentary by Joel Harris

Social Security will undoubtedly play a major role in most Americans’ retirement income planning. The problem is, personal finance most Americans will not take the time to understand various claiming strategies that could potentially add several thousands of dollars in additional benefits during their lifetimes. I’m going to discuss a little-used strategy called “file and suspend” that could potentially mean greater benefits to your retirement income. Here’s the scenario: Joe and Jane Doe have been married for more than 30 years and are seriously considering retirement in the next five years. Joe is 65 and was born in 1949, which means his full retirement age is 66. Jane is 63 and was born in 1951, so her full retirement age is also 66. As with many Americans, Joe and Jane’s number one goal is finding ways to maximize their income when the checks stop coming in from their current employers. Based on Joe’s working history, his primary insurance amount at full retirement age is $2,450. Jane’s, on the other hand, is $1,590 based on her earnings history. Joe plans on working past his full retirement age because he will “go crazy” if he stops working in his 60s. Jane has a different mindset and is dead set on retiring at 66 so she can travel, volunteer in her community and pick up new hobbies. Most people in this scenario would elect to take their own benefits at 66, and by doing so, would leave a lot of future income on the table in retirement. Here’s where the “file and suspend”

strategy could potentially work perfect for Joe and Jane. Since Joe plans on working well past his full retirement age, he decides to file and suspend his benefits at 68, which makes Jane eligible for spousal benefits at 66. Jane would file a restricted application for spousal benefits only in the estimated amount of $1,225 at age 66. Next, Joe would elect to turn on his benefits at 70 based on his earning history, which has grown to approximately $3,234 per month. Since Jane elected spousal benefits at 66, her own benefit continued to grow until age 70, which is estimated to be about $2,099 per month in 2021. Lastly, in the event Joe passes away before Jane, she has the ability to switch again to survivor benefits in the estimated amount of $3,234 per month. There are a lot of moving parts with the above-mentioned scenario. To put it in a nutshell, if Joe lives to be 85 and Jane lives to 90, they will receive approximately $1,242,087 in benefits using the “file and suspend” strategy versus an approximate $1,090,350 had they elected to take their own benefits at full retirement age. That is a difference of $151,737; that is a lot of dough, folks! The moral of this story is simple. Social Security income will have a profound effect on your retirement income planning. Please research all of your options before you go sprinting to the Social Security office to sign up for benefits at 62.

DISPATCHES Local company rewards investors - Baldwin & Lyons declared a regular quarterly dividend of $.25 per share on the company’s Class A and Class B common stock. The dividend per share will be payable June 5 to shareholders of record on May 22. One in 10 Americans don’t carry paper money anymore - It could be a portent of the long-foretold cashless society, or just a sign of consumer confidence, but nearly one in 10 Americans no longer carry cash on a daily basis, according to a new report from Bankrate. com. The survey, conducted by Princeton Survey Research Associates International, also found that 78 percent of Americans carried less than $50 in paper money, and that 49 percent carry $20 or less each day. Nine percent went without cash entirely, the survey found. The survey also found that Eighty-six percent of women reported carrying less than $50, compared to 70 percent of men.

3 dead-money stocks to avoid – What should we call a blue chip stock that’s past its prime? When people try to say something nice about someone without many other redeeming qualities, they often say that person has a “great personality.” The equivalent thing that investors say about formerly high-flying stocks is that they’ve “got a great dividend.” Such is the predicament that 1) McDonald’s (MCD) - finds itself in. The 3.2 percent yield of MCD stock is above the 1.96 percent average of the S&P 500, but there are better ways to chase yield. MCD shares are cheap, trading a forward price-toearnings multiple under 18. But they are cheap for a reason. MCD has alienated customers and has even angered its own franchisees. The House of Ronald expects to see some “modest” improvement in same-store sales in April, but take note that have been five straight declines in this key retail metric. 2) Coca-Cola’s (KO) - America’s century-long love affair with carbonated beverages has cooled considerably. Per-capita soda consumption is a multi-year low. Sales of soda are tumbling. Even more troubling is the decline in diet soda, which was considered to be the industry’s saving grace. Baring the discovery of a low-calorie sweetener that cures baldness, Coca-Cola is going to face difficulties selling its signature product because there is nothing positive that can be said about it. 3) IBM (IBM) - The company is a hodgepodge of software, hardware and services. Were it being built today, there is no way any company would attempt to compete in such a broad array of markets. The other issue, as was evident in the last quarter, is that the strong businesses like software aren’t strong enough to overcome the weaknesses of struggling operations such as hardware. To make maters worse, IBM can no longer count on its services business to make up the difference. Last quarter, it reported double-digit declines in pre-tax profit and a 1 percent decline in revenue. Companies still need advice but just aren’t willing to pay up for it.

Data: Singular or plural? Commentary by Jordan Fischer Question: “Grammar Guy, I see the word ‘data’ used all the time as both a singular and plural noun. Can it be grammar guy both, or is there a consistent rule for it?” Answer: I’ve been saving this question for the right time, and since I’ve spent the last week nose-deep in spreadsheets, I think I’m ready for it. To begin with, “data” comes to us directly from Latin, where it is the plural form of “datum” (Meaning: “an item given”). In English, we understand data as “facts or information used usually to calculate, analyze, or plan something.” When you enter your destination into MapQuest: That’s data. When you fill out a survey: That’s data. When you vote in an election: That’s data. Data is information. Some professional organizations have endeavored to standardize the use of “data.” The American Psychological Association, which regulates APA Style, has, for example, decided that “data” is always to be used as a plural noun. For most uses that don’t follow APA Style, however, you’ll need to decide whether “data” is acting as a count noun or a mass noun. The best way to do this is to decide whether

you are referring to individual units of data or an abstract group of data as a whole. A trick to help you figure this out at first is to mentally add the word “points” after “data” in the sentence and see whether it makes sense. For example: “These data (points) are out of order” vs. “This data (points) comes to us from the CDC.” In the first sentence, the addition of “points” makes sense because we are talking about individual data. “Data” is therefore a count noun and should be treated as a plural. In the second sentence, adding “points” doesn’t make sense – “data” is acting as a mass noun and should get a singular verb. Sometimes, though, treating “data” as a singular or plural noun comes down to personal preference. Consider this sentence: “Self-reported data (is/are) historically unreliable.” “Data” could be used as either a singular or plural noun in the sentence, and both choices would make sense and be grammatically acceptable. Like the data itself, how you use it is up to you. Jordan Fischer is a contributing columnist for Current Publishing. To ask Jordan a grammar question, write him at rjfische@gmail.com.

A local treasure in downtown Indy Commentary by Don Knebel As we travel to see the world’s treasures, we can overlook those in our own back yards. travel The Indiana War Memorial is one such a treasure, often ignored by people driving by it every day. In 1920, as part of a successful plan to lure the American Legion headquarters to Indianapolis, the Indiana General Assembly appropriated $2 million for a monument to the victors of the recent world war. General John J. Pershing broke ground for the 210-feet-tall War Memorial in 1927, which was dedicated in 1933 even though the interior remained incomplete despite additional funding from the Works Progress Administration. The design of the three-story square building, with columns and pyramid-shaped roof, evokes the tomb of Mausolus, a wonder of the ancient world that gave us the word “mausoleum.” Words carved in the limestone exterior express hope the building will “inspire patriotism and respect for the laws to the end that peace may prevail, justice be administered, public order maintained and Shrine Room in Indiana War Memorial (Photo by Don Knebel) liberty perpetuated.” The building’s surprisingly capacious interior, attention in 1953 when Edward R. Murrow’s making extensive use of marble, includes a 500popular “See it Now” television series covered seat auditorium, meeting rooms and a museum the American Legion’s controversial closing of military history. The inspiring Shrine Room of the auditorium to the Indiana Civil Liberties on the third floor honors the soldiers who won Union. Those days are long gone and the building the “war to end all wars.” Incorporating materiis open to the public Wednesdays to Sundays als from all the Allies, the room features a huge from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. The next time you long to American flag hanging vertically over an “Altar visit a world-class building, consider a trip to 431 of Consecration.” The altar is surrounded by 24 North Meridian. fluted columns of dark red Vermont marble.

Landscaping “triple threats” provide season interest, infusion of color and low-maintenance living. (Submitted photo)

And just like that … it happened Commentary by Randy Sorrell

It seemed to occur overnight, but it was really a gradual three-to-five year transition. And, now the romance of spending eveoutdoors nings in our perennial gardens deadheading and pruning feel more like a dreaded blind date, mulching hurts and pruning is best left to the experts. Can I get an Amen? TRIPLE THREAT So the emergence of our landscape “Triple Threat” seems brilliant when essentially we are simply listening to our Baby Boomer clients and responding with a formal plan that delivers: 1) seasonal interest, 2) gobs of color and 3) lowmaintenance living. We boomers are a brilliant bunch and our definition of booming is one filled with thrilling opportunities, vigorous experiences, luxurious living and second careers … NOT hours crouched pulling weeds followed by mega doses of ibuprofenlaced cocktails. Interestingly, our children are listening and Gen X, Y and the Millennials are all digging our example. Imagine that. Is there a prevailing “Triple Threat” compo-

nent? Low maintenance is mine, but yours may be gobs of color. I believe seasonal interest migrates to the bottom. We all want our outdoor spaces to have winter sizzle but when there’s five inches of snow on the ground and it’s 10 degrees, our passion for curved beds lined with evergreens and winter berries is a little muted. Our focus is how to get to a beach and shedding a few pounds to squeeze into last years faded swimsuit. WHAT’S NEXT? We will certainly continue to expand our “Triple Threat” strategies, but there are more urgent issues on the horizon. You probably echoed these words in the last few sunny days … “I need to find some shade” and “do the hydrangeas need watered today.” That’s what’s next. Until then, pursue luxury outdoor living filled with: Seasonal interest. Gobs of color. Lowmaintenance living.

Maintaining your hardwood flooring Commentary by David Decker Because of its versatile style, natural feeling and durable structure, hardwood has remained one of the most enduringly indoors trendy flooring options for generations. In fact, it’s so popular that homes containing hardwood flooring will often sell faster than homes without it. Choosing hardwood flooring is definitely a safe investment. But to get the most out of this investment, it’s extremely important to properly care for and maintain hardwood flooring. Water, pets, foot traffic and other environmental elements can all play a role in wearing down your hardwood flooring. Help your hardwood stay healthy by following these basic maintenance tips. The key to maintaining hardwood happens before you even install it in your home. Be sure to inspect any rooms where you are considering hardwood. Try to figure out how much moisture and foot traffic the flooring will come in contact with. Certain types of hardwood are susceptible to moisture, which can cause the wood to splinter or bend. Additionally, excessive amounts of foot traffic can cause wear and tear to the planks. Scuffed and scratched floors can be refinished, but this process can get costly, especially if you choose a softer wood that needs frequent repair. If you’ve decided the room is a good fit for hardwood flooring, you’ll want to keep your hard-

Wood can also be very susceptible to scratching or dents, depending on the type of wood finish that you choose. Dirt, sand or gravel that makes its way into your home could scratch the surface of your hardwood flooring. You’ll also want to sweep and vacuum your floor weekly to eliminate dust and particles. A few strategically-placed rugs and mats wouldn’t hurt either. Ask your guests to wipe their feet before entering a room with hardwood flooring. Unlike other flooring trends that come and go, hardwood flooring has remained popular for over 200 Hardwood is susceptible to water damage so owners should years.
