Utilities this summer, stop hiding your legs!

A gas leak while replacing phone lines caused traffic issues on U.S. 31 on July 4. (Photo provided by John Barrett)

Gas line break slows traffic

By Robert Herrington • robert@youarecurrent.com Westfield firefighters fought the hot weather during a four-hour gas main break at the intersection of U.S. 31 and Greyhound Pass on July 4. WFD Spokesman John Barrett said Vectren was able to get the leak stopped at 8:30 p.m., allowing police to reopen all roads in the area. “Initially, contractors working to replace phone lines for the U.S. 31 project hit the gas main at approximately 5 p.m. and then called 911,” said Barrett. “Firefighters arrived shortly after and found a two-inch gas main spewing into the air. They then shut down northbound U.S. 31 traffic and began monitoring air quality – including the shopping mall in the area.”

After clearing a safe zone, the fire department began allowing one lane of traffic north, but the eastbound and westbound traffic remained closed. Firefighters suited up and protected Vectren workers during the entire incident. “While the hot weather was draining, firefighters stayed well hydrated and rotated in shifts,” Barrett explained. “There were no injuries to firefighters or civilians.” Vectren crews stayed at the site fixing the pipe throughout the evening so there was no interruption of gas service. Barrett said the fire department shut down access to the Chase Bank ATM during the incident, but the branch was closed because of the holiday. No businesses were evacuated.

Local students attend Hoosier Boys State editorial@youarecurrent.com Three local students were among the 520 boys selected to participate in the American Legion Hoosier Boys State at Trine University. Founded in 1937, the organization is celebrating its 75th year. Participants included Westfield High School students Jacob Tebbe, who was sponsored by American Legion Post 145, and Nathan Manworren, sponsored by American Legion Post 318. Bishop Chatard High School student Deegan Atha of Westfield was sponsored by American Legion Post 276. They heard an inspirational message from Hall of Fame football coach and Trine trustee Lou Holtz on June 13. In addition, they met multiple local and state leaders throughout the week. Taking the theme “A Week to Shape a Lifetime,” Boys State – a weeklong residential learning experience – examines the operation of Indiana’s democratic form of government, the organization of political parties and the practical application of the knowledge gained from both. Holtz admitted he wasn’t a politician, but felt he could teach them a thing or two based on his years of experience as a winning coach, mentor and author. He offered advice on attitude, accomplishments, goals and commitment. His speech garnered him a standing ovation and an initiation as an honorary “Hoosier Boys Stater.” “Leaders must have a vision,” Holtz told the crowd, encouraging them to figure out what’s

important, have the right attitude and make good choices. “Our future is determined by the choices we make ... Making good choices is critical. First, you’ve got to do right. Second, do everything to the best of your ability and then show people that you care.” He encouraged the boys to set goals – in relationships, religion, finances, work and fun – and discussed adversity, calling it his most significant motivating factor. Overcoming obstacles is key to success, he said, emphasizing that “it will turn out to be OK in the end.” “Leaders have an obligation to make people the best they can be,” said Holtz. “Be significant, not successful.”

Officials impose mandatory water restrictions editorial@youarecurrent.com Because of the increasingly dry conditions, the city of Westfield has imposed mandatory water restrictions for all residents. This measure is implemented to protect the water supply and pressure for potential firefighting purposes. According to city officials, the current drought could also potentially compromise the city’s water system and is putting a tremendous strain on the city’s water distribution. Westfield is directing residents who have an even numbered address to only irrigate on Monday and Wednesday and residents with an odd numbered address to irrigate on Tuesday and Thursday. There is to be no weekend irrigation. These restrictions are effective immediately and are imposed until further notification by city officials. Despite the water restrictions, Westfield’s Splash Park will remain open for residents as a cooling station. Water used at the Splash Park is recycled water. www.currentinwestfield.com

Cover Story

As the city council looks at a new tall-grass ordinance, Gloria Cassady fights for her homeowner's rights

By Robert Herrington • robert@youarecurrent.com

Westfield resident Gloria Cassady is in a fight to save her lawn. The hot weather and drought conditions have already ruined the grass, but the retired Beacon Pointe subdivision homeowner is fighting resistance to present a different, ecological yard. “Everything I’m doing I have a right to do,” Cassidy was told by legal advisors. “When I look out my door I want to see green, not neighbors… When I envisioned it, it would have been beautiful by now.” Cassady said she is trying to exercise her rights as a homeowner, but claims her HOA has stopped her illegally. “I want to plant a garden and make improvements but was halted,” she said. “I read the HOA carefully before I bought the property.” On May 7, the Beacon Pointe HOA stopped Cassady’s workers. “He demanded not so much as a single flower be planted until a comprehensive detailed landscape plan for my entire property is approved by the architectural design review committee,” said Cassady. “Feeling bullied but trying to be neighborly, I voluntarily paused implementation efforts and respectfully invited dialogue.” Since Cassady halted her lawn’s transformation, a large mound of dirt sits in her front yard and the fenced in property behind her house has sections of grass two to three feet high. Cassady contends that describing her yard as haphazard or the thought that her grass is just allowed to grow is not the case. “In its current condition because I’m not able to plant any flowers,” she said. “The mess you see damages me most of all. I want to be an asset to the neighborhood. No one is more daunted than me. I’m very concerned with property values in the whole neighborhood.” Cassady said her intent when she started digging was to have her yard in shape to celebrate her 65th birthday. Instead, Cassady celebrated her special day standing before the Westfield City Council defending her yard and plan to use beneficial landscaping. At that council meeting, members were discussing potential changes to the city’s Tall Grass and Weeds Ordinance. Director of Community Development Matt Skelton said the city has made several minor Skelton wording changes to the origi10 | July 10, 2012

nal ordinance including the wording to include subdivision lots – describing but not identifying Cassady’s home. “This is about extreme situations,” he said. Skelton explained that the current ordinance is unenforceable for what was intended. “The intent was to have something that looks enticing – different from what we see today,” he said. “She has a plan but the plan is not

demonstrated.” The changes to the ordinance involve minor word changes in the requirement to cut, violation notice and city to abate sections. The major change comes at the start of section 14 – “The following provisions in this Section 14 shall not apply to lots located within a residential subdivision secondary plat recorded after Sept. 7, 1977.” Councilman Steve Hoover explained the ordinance was intended for farmland or larger properties. “I never really envisioned this being in a subdivision with small lots,” he said. “Residents can choose not to have a lawn, but if you have a lawn it has to be mowed.” Cassady views the new ordinance as a form of class division. “I don’t think habitat should be exclusive to those that can afford 20 acres,” she said. “I want to show an example of what can be done.” Skelton said the original ordinance started more than a year ago. Since it began, Skelton said the city has processed 25 to 30 properties and mowed 10 to 15. He said most are abandoned homes or negligent homeowners. “We’ve had a lot of success administering this,” said Skelton. “It’s been a fantastic improvement.” The second reading and possible consideration of the Tall Grass and Weeds Ordinance occurred after the printing of this article at the July 9 council meeting.

Changes to the Tall Grass and Weeds Ordinance The following changes have been presented to the Westfield City Council: Section 4. Requirement to cut. All owners of property located within the city shall cut and remove weeds and other rank vegetation growing thereon that Ordinance 11-2014 Tall Grass and Weeds exceeds a height of 12 inches, and shall keep their property clear of debris. Section 5. Violation Notice. In the event of a violation of this chapter, the director and/or his designee, or an officer of the police or fire department shall issue a written notice to the violating landowner. The violation notice shall identify the violation and order the landowner to correct the same within 10 calendar days from the date on which the violation notice is served on the landowner. Posting notice conspicuously on the property in violation, personal service, service by U.S. certified mail, regular mail or any other manner service recognized in the Indiana Rules of Trial Procedure shall constitute proper service upon the landowner for purposes of this chapter. Section 7. City to abate. If the landowner fails to abate each violation set forth in a violation notice in a timely manner, the landowner shall be deemed to have granted permission to the city to enter the landowner’s property for the limited purpose of inspecting, cutting and/or removing such debris, weeds or rank vegetation located thereon and identified in the violation notice. In such case, the director, or his designee, shall prepare a certified statement as to the actual administrative and other costs incurred by the city in taking such action, and serve a copy of the invoice on the landowner. The landowner shall, within seven calendar days from the date on which the landowner is served with such invoice, pay in full the amount stated thereon to the Dept. of Community Development. Section 14. The following provisions in this Section 14 shall not apply to lots located within a residential subdivision secondary plat recorded after Sept. 7, 1977. This chapter is not intended to apply to properties being utilized in an agricultural manner, or properties or portions of property that are clearly intended to remain in a natural state, such as, but not limited to, woods, forests, creeks, hedgerows, wetlands, wildflower preservation areas, nature preservation areas, and/or natural wildlife habitats. The director shall have discretion to determine whether the property in question qualifies under the exception stated herein. www.currentinwestfield.com

Opinion Obama lacks grip on economics

Precious Indiana summers It is our position that we shouldn’t allow record heat and drought conditions to shrivel up summer fun. Indiana summers are far too beautiful and precious to watch them slip away from the confines of our homes because we dread venturing out into the heat. Who can be hot and bothered when there is fresh Indiana corn and cantaloupe to be eaten, garden tomatoes to be sliced, berries to be picked and fireflies to be chased? Hamilton and Boone counties are fortunate to have wonderful aquatic centers and free splash parks – a great way to keep the kids active and cool at the same time. What better excuse is there to visit your town square and indulge in a dish of ice cream, custard or frozen yogurt while listening to music or browsing art galleries? Those over 21 years of age can cool off on the shaded patios of one of many Indiana-based craft breweries, such as Flat 12 Bierwerks. We must brave the heat for churches, school programs and community services that depend on money raised from outdoor festivals and fairs to fund their programs for the entire year. Grab a hat, slather on some sunscreen, venture out and enjoy summer in Indiana!

Change and hope Commentary by Terry Anker Perhaps it is simple human nature. We dislike and disparage those who disagree with our take on a particular issue and tend to admire and regard those who seem to take our side in an argument. So, it has been particularly entertaining to watch as pundits and just-plain-old opinionated folk have reacted to the surprising outcome of the recent Supreme Court deliberation on the constitutionality of some provisions of the largely yet-to-be-implemented heath care reform act widely known as Obamacare. Chief Justice John Roberts sided with the liberal justices in supporting Obamacare, holding that it is a tax allowed under the Constitution. If we can net out the noise, Roberts seems to be the kind of judge who is singularly focused on the task at hand. He is rarely swayed by protestors seeking the “right” outcome and operates with regard to the Constitutional context and rule of existing law. I’d guess that Roberts is simply convinced that Congress maintains the power to tax the American peo-

ple as it sees fit and does not ascribe a belief that he is secretly making a ruling based on the desire to impose his view of social justice. His less predictable approach to decision making should lead to a generation of important, if volatile, moves by the high court. With the change made, we can only hope that Americans most in need are elevated by taxpayers’ additional contribution to the common good. And, we hope that any risk of program dependency and reduction in freedom and self-reliance is ameliorated by empowering citizens served by our national largess to break free of these bonds and become more productive and contributing members of the collective good using the money saved, and contributed by others, to pursue education and focus on opportunity for themselves and their progeny.

It should come as no surprise that we were bitterly disappointed with the Supreme Court’s recent decision on ObamaCare. We suspect many of you were, too. As our sour feelings abated – albeit in a very minor way – along came last Monday’s Wall Street Journal, and in it an opinion piece by Michael J. Boskin. He’s an economics professor at Stanford University and a senior fellow at the Hoover Institution, and he also chaired the Council of Economic Advisers under former President George H.W. Bush (don’t hold that against him, please). Boskin wrote exactly what we’ve been thinking. In short: Pursuit of profits is critical to a robust economy; the recession’s end was more than three years ago, but recovery has been anemic; the majority of Americans are opposed to President Barack Obama’s economic policies; Obama claims that when he took office no one knew how dire the recession would be, which is untrue, because all the leading economists did; and the president’s record on jobs is lacking. As Boskin points out, “Perhaps we should not have expected more from the eloquent apostle of hope and change.” Obama’s autobiography, Boskin points out, states that during his brief time in business, he felt “like a spy behind enemy lines.” That. Just. Makes. Us. Shudder. We, like most, believe there will be a short battle royale in Congress over ObamaCare, but for those that oppose it we suspect it will be for naught. Change? America voted for it, and now America has it. We’re not quite sure this is what our founding fathers had in mind back at the signing party in Independence Hall. We hope and pray common sense prevails in the general election and the worst president in the nation’s history is shown the door.

Laughs

Don't judge a book by its cover Commentary by Danielle Wilson Let’s do this, ladies! I speak of course of finally reading "Fifty Shades of Grey" by E.L. James. Summer’s here, the kids don’t need us, and what relationship couldn’t benefit from a heaping dose of Cholula? Here’s my proposal: If you haven’t read the book yet, read it with me. I’m taking the next two weeks to swim in the erotic fiction that my dad calls “filth.” (Sad but true. My 70-year-old father beat me to it!) Then I’ll write an article with my reactions and thoughts and include your comments as well. If you’ve already experienced the mania, feel free to email me your take. Think of me as Oprah with red hair. And if by some chance you’ve managed to avoid all media references to the Shades of Grey phenomena and haven’t a clue as to what I am referring, allow me to first encourage you to crawl out of whatever dark hole you’ve been hiding in for the past three months. Secondly, let me bring you up to speed. To my understanding, the "Shades of Grey" trilogy (yes, there are two more books should we crave more!) is the explicit S&M version of the Twilight series aimed at all the soccer moms who secretly took sides in the Edward versus Jacob rivalry (Team Edward, baby!). I guess Ms. James thinks that American suburbanites lead boring, predictable, conservative

lives, and are too Stepford to spice things up on our own. (Clearly she has never been to a Saturday morning yard sale with infant carriers on the line!) But I’ll play her game. If for no other reason than to see what all the hoopla is about. At least then I can form an opinion based on actual knowledge of the book, unlike some people I know who trash it without having even perused one page. You can’t judge a book by its cover or its coverage, my friends. That’s called ignorance. Bottom line for me: I like romance novels (Nora Roberts kills.), I like sexy movies (Mr. and Mrs. Smith stands as one of my all-time favorites but I just saw This Means War and it was hot), and I like feeling that spark for my husband after twenty years of being together (without drugs or counseling, thank you very much). If "Shades of Grey" is an enjoyable read that ups the love ante, I’ll be a happy camper and gladly recommend it to my peeps. But it will be so much more fun if I have a group of ladies (and/or gentlemen; no gender bias here) with whom I can share. So hit your favorite book store, library or e-book dealer and let’s do this. Peace out. Danielle Wilson is a contributing columnist. You may e-mail her at danielle@currentincarmel.com.

“Ice Age: Continental Drift” – In theaters Friday, the Ice Age franchise returns with its fourth film. Manny, Diego and Sid start off a new adventure as their continent is set adrift and they are forced to use an iceberg as a ship.

(Left) Comedian Dave Attell performed at Morty’s last year and will be returning later this year. (Above) Pictures like this one of legendary comic George Carlin line the windows of the club.

How Morty’s Comedy Joint is redefining Northside comedy scene By Christian Sorrell • christian@youarecurrent.com In January 2010, Morty’s Comedy Joint, on Keystone Avenue along Carmel’s southern border, closed its doors. Several months later, a number of comedians and investors purchased the business and re-launched the club. During the past two years, Morty’s has gone from a formerly failing business to a burgeoning comedy club that not only brings national talent through its doors, but has also created a vibrant local community of growing comedians. Steve Hofstetter, co-owner of Morty’s and a comedian himself, credits a majority of the club’s newfound success to the formula of its four owners, which includes three working comedians, as well as the supHofstetter port of the local community. “I think it was a combination of everything really. The experience of a comedy club is so much more than just what’s on stage,” said Hofstetter. “From the moment they get out of their car, people need to be having a great time.”

Keeping this in mind, the exterior, interior and entire food and drink selection of the club have been revamped to be more immediately inviting and enjoyable. The exterior of the building features a number of America’s greatest comedians, while the interior is lined with classic vinyl comedy albums. There is more to the Morty’s makeover than simple appearance. Building a local community of unique comedy talent is also at the core of Morty’s new strategy. “We have a local talent night once a week, sometimes three nights a week, as well as a residency program,” said Hofstetter. “It doesn’t matter how good someone is. Without stage time, it doesn’t really matter, so we are sure to give (local Gardner comedians) that time.” According to Hofstetter, Mike Gardner is one such comedian. Not only has Morty’s embraced Gardner, a Carmel resident, as a headliner, they have also worked with him to include other local comedians in tours he has

planned himself. “If you don’t have good local talent, a comedy club is not sustainable,” said Hofstetter. Supporting Morty’s with this local talent, Hofstetter and his fellow co-owners have created something unique within Indianapolis’ relatively small comedy scene. Formerly dominated by Crackers, a comedy club founded locally in 1980, Hofstetter views the scene as something that can be developed greatly in the years to come. “With some of the country’s best comedy clubs within driving distance and our location, there is no reason that Indianapolis is not the hotbed of comedy in the Midwest, if not the entire country,” said Hofstetter. Hopefully with the right combination of talent, community and cooperation, it will be.

NIGHT & DAY Event Preview Civic kicks off 2012 young adult summer program Commentary by Cheri Dick Most area residents know how many talented high school athletes hail from Hamilton County. Do the names Josh McRoberts, Kevin Plawecki and Gary Harris ring a bell? But if you’ve ever attended one of the thrilling theatre performances presented by our area high schools, then you know that our community is rich in stage talent as well. And it’s about to get even better. That’s because Booth Tarkington Civic Theatre has launched one of the most diverse and inspiring young adult summer programs in the United States. It’s an in-depth, three-week theatre workshop for students ages 14 to 18 consisting of intensive rehearsals and specialized programs that culminate in a fully supported and professionally staffed production on the state-of-theart Tarkington stage. What teenager, who desires a moment in the spotlight, could ask for more? I want to call special attention to four components of Civic’s 2012 young adult summer program that might be of special interest to aspiring performers of all ages in your family: • “From Here to Broadway” will feature Lawrence North High School alum, Ben Davis, as he talks with workshop participants about his path from the northeast side of Indianapolis to the stages of Broadway. His message? If I can successfully make that journey, so can you! • Bill Jenkins, Chair of Ball State’s Department of Theatre and Dance, will tell students “How to Nail Your College Audition.” • “Resume Boot Camp” is a unique opportunity for the teens in your family to get help from industry professionals in preparing their performing arts resumes for college applications. And you don’t want to miss Civic Theatre’s young adult production of “Broadway Palooza – An Evening of Great Moments in Musical Theatre!” at 7:30 p.m. on July 27 and 28, starring many of the most talented teens in the region. You can find out more about dates, times and nominal charges (when applicable) for all of these young adult summer programs at www.

Diabetes and you: know the facts Commenatary by Dr. Sunil Juthani, MD

Diabetes is a serious condition affecting 26 million Americans. Another 79 million people have pre-diabetes and are at risk for developing the disease. Diabetes occurs when there is a shortage of insulin in the body or when the body loses its ability to use insulin or both. Insulin lowers blood sugar and converts glucose (sugar) to energy. Too much sugar in the blood causes damage to organs. People with diabetes have a higher incidence of heart attack, stroke, kidney failure and a higher risk for amputation. Diabetes testing can be done at your doctor’s office. All adults should have basic diabetes testing at age 40. Earlier testing is recommended for: • Adults who are overweight/obese. • Those with one or more risk factors. Primary risk factors for diabetes are family history, pregnancy and ethnicity. African Americans and Hispanic Americans are two ethnic groups at higher risk. • Anyone with a history of smoking, high blood pressure or high cholesterol. Fasting blood sugar and hemoglobin A1C are two criteria used to diagnose pre-diabetes and diabetes. Normal fasting blood sugar should be less than 100 mg/dl. Readings of 100 to 125 mg/dl indicate pre-diabetes, and readings of more than 125 mg/dl are consistent with

diabetes. The hemoglobin A1C test, measuring the average amount of sugar in the blood over 60-90 days, is also used to diagnose diabetes. Hemoglobin A1C results of more than 6.5 percent indicate diabetes, while someone without diabetes will register an A1C of between 4 and 5.6 percent. People with pre-diabetes are generally encouraged by their doctors to lose between 5 and 7 percent of their body weight and exercise for at least 30 minutes five days a week. This may prevent the condition from progressing to diabetes. Today, doctors take a more patient-centered approach to treating those with diabetes that considers individual needs, preferences and tolerances. In addition to diet and lifestyle modifications, treatment options include oral diabetes medications, insulin injections and sometimes incretin mimetics – medications that signal the body to release insulin after eating. When doctors and patients work together, diabetes can be successfully managed and quality of life maintained.

DOUGH

Insurance

Most homeowners’ policies cover dog bites Commentary by Andy Warren I’ve got a big friendly dog, but I’ve always worried about what would happen if she bit someone. Am I protected if something like this happens? – Billy S., Noblesville We all love our pets. They make great family members, playmates and protectors, but they are always causing problems for insurance companies. Almost two million people are bitten by dogs each year with around 800,000 of those folks requiring professional medical treatment for their wounds. Each of these incidents is a potential lawsuit. A key factor that contributes to these incidents is the failure of dog owners to supervise and train their pets. Another problem is that many people, especially children, do not know how to behave around dogs. When you own a pet, you have a responsibility to raise and handle your pet in a manner that reduces the chances of an incident. Steps to take include researching your breed and general principles of ownership and care. You should always make certain that family members, neighbors, guests and strangers are protected from your pet. You should check out the resources available to help, such as tips from animal shelters, dog ownership clubs, the American Kennel Club and, of course, the Internet. Many insurers are choosing not to give dogs

or their owners a fair chance. It is becoming more common for companies to refuse to write coverage for people who own certain breeds of dogs. The breeds commonly excluded include chows, pit bulls, Akitas, Rottweilers and sharpeis. Therefore, you must fight this trend by not taking pet ownership lightly. The good news is, you’re probably already protected if you have a homeowner’s insurance policy. Just make sure you have adequate limits to protect you from financial damage if you have an incident like this. I recommend that everyone have a minimum liability limit of $1 million. Adding an extra million in coverage with an umbrella policy is also a good idea, and doesn’t cost as much as you might imagine.  Your liability limit is not just for pet attacks, either. It protects you from many unfortunate incidents, like when a guest slips and falls in your driveway or when your kid accidently drives the lawn mower into the neighbor’s new Mercedes. Make sure you read your policy or go over it with your independent insurance agent to see what is excluded.

The Rocket, the Republic, and Romans 13 Commentary by Bob Walters There sure has been a lot of high-impact national legal news recently, what with the rulings on Obamacare, Arizona’s immigration issues, child punishment limits, and all. But prior to the Supreme Court launching its multi-headed, end-of-session jurisprudential howitzers and accompanying confusion into the national conversation late last month, an earlier story already had me thinking critically about truth, justice, and the American way: the federal “not guilty” verdict for legendary baseball pitcher Roger Clemens, aka, “the Rocket.” My initial reaction had and has nothing to do with baseball, Clemens’ celebrity, his accomplishments, whether he used performance enhancing drugs (PEDs), whether he lied to Congress, or whether he should be in baseball’s Hall of Fame. What caught my attention was how many media outlets bundled the Clemens “not guilty” verdict with similar PED verdicts for baseball’s Barry Bonds and cyclist Lance Armstrong, and reported those successful defenses as “losses” for the United States government. That gave me pause. First, because I question how a legal finding that exonerates a citizen is a “loss” for the republic. And second, because I think that God, not the government, is the only, proper, and final arbiter of truth and justice. Our secular government courts – whether by judge or jury – do the best they can to assess legal

vs. illegal, but nobody should assume that every American judicial decision is on a par with God’s righteousness. Secular justice is in the eye of the beholder; look at the O.J. trial, for heaven’s sake. Romans 13 tells us that God ordains governments, and that “the one in authority is God’s servant” (verse 4). I see plain and persistent evidence that the government and media are perpetually confused about who is the servant and who is God. Only God is God, and justice is His alone. When the media – however indirectly, absentmindedly, or irreverently – implies that government is the ultimate arbiter of justice, that’s a red flag. It’s a sign the media has succumbed to thinking that justice is Caesar’s (i.e., the government’s) rather than God’s. The overarching yet oh-so sublime problem is this: Government has no God, only people do. In Romans 13, Paul reminds us that we have to adjust to life and “justice” in this world, but not by forgetting God. Then in Philippians 3:20 Paul declares that for Christians our true citizenship is in heaven. That’s important to remember. As citizens, this life matters most when we understand that justice is God’s alone. Bob Walters (rlwcom@aol.com) thinks that God’s truth and justice actually is the American way, but thinks it is pretty obvious we are losing our way.

Travel

The good, the bad and the really strange Commentary by Tracy Line Experience is the greatest teacher. I’m just loaded with experience. Today, I’d like to share a few things I’ve learned in my years of working in the travel industry. The good, the bad and the really strange… Quirky truths • Pet friendly does not mean cat-friendly. In fact, most properties do not allow cats. • Flight prices can vary by as much as $2,000 for the same plane, same flight. They can also fluctuate drastically throughout the day or week. • Mexico is a bad place to have a heart attack. Then again, anywhere is a bad place to have a heart attack. • Never tell a client he is booked until you’ve clicked the final button. • Certain cruises (interport) in Europe don’t offer airport transfers or allow you to prebook excursions. • Disney is an empire; even the Disney reps get things wrong and don’t know everything there is to know.

Notes to self • There will be days where you work really hard for no pay. • There will also be days where you hardly work for really nice pay. • Everyone wants the best vacation for the least amount of money. • “Someplace with a beach” means different things to different people. • You will make mistakes, so will the airlines. All you can do is try really hard to fix them. • Don’t assume everyone knows that the airlines charge for baggage, or that a passport is needed when leaving the country. Pearls of wisdom • Problems don’t resolve themselves; dealing with them head on is a much better strategy • People respect honesty and integrity over anything else. • It helps to have friends in high places. • Travel insurance IS worth it. • No matter what you do in life, check your work and then check it a second time. Then, check it again. Tracy Line is a travel writer and agent, and the owner of Noblesville Travel. Contact her at Tracy@ noblesvilletravel.com.

Controlling your dog in a canine crowd

Commentary by John Mikesell

More and more folks walking their dog’s on the Monon. Lots of people in downtown Carmel with their pets. What do you do when your dog goes a little crazy around all of the other dogs here are a few suggestions. Five things to do when your dog goes bonkers over other dogs. Stay Calm: If you become angry, hysterical, loud, or violent, you only add to the stress that has put him over his emotional threshold. As horrifying as his display may be, your emotion only makes it worse for him. Try “square breathing”: breathe in for three seconds; hold for three seconds; breathe out for three seconds; hold for three seconds; repeat. Leave: When your dog is having a huge emotional outburst, the best thing you can do is take him away. He is emotionally out of control, and all your pleas to sit or lie down are fruitless; he literally is unable to process your cues. Create Distance: If you can’t leave for some reason, at least put distance between your dog and other dogs in the area. Most dogs have a threshold distance a distance at which they are able to maintain self control. It may be as close as 20 feet or as far as 100

yards-and may vary somewhat from one day to the next. Use a visual barrier: Most dog reactive dogs are most stimulated by the sight of another dog. Try putting a visual barrier between your dog and whatever causes him to become aroused. You can use your own body, stepping between him and the others. Or, train him to step behind you and sit when he sees another dog at a distance. Look for a hedge you can step behind with your dog, or a wall, fence, or building that will block his sight. If his arousal is a reaction to the sound of other dogs, try, Mutt Muffs, available at safeandsoundpets.com,to dampen the volume of sounds he can hear. Be carefull!.Neither will he be able to hear approaching vehicles, or other sounds that help to keep him safe. Teach him an emergency exit: Make this a fun game that you can play when there aren’t other dogs around. Your cue should be something that lends itself to happy play, such as “whee!” or “Runawaay!”.Teach it when your dog is waling with you on a

STROOPP

leash by saying the cue in a loud, happy , high voice and then making a 180 degree turn and running as fast as you can in the opposite direction for at least 20 feet. Your dog should be galloping happily after you. When you stop, toss yummy treats. The goal is to give him such a positive association with his run away cue that he doesn’t think about getting aroused by the sight other dog who just popped out from behind a parked car. I must warn everyone again, is this extremely hot weather do not leave your dog in the care (or your children) unattended. It only takes a few minutes for the temp to reach over a Hundred degrees in the car. Be very careful when walking your dog, they live in air conditioning just like we do. They do not fair any better than we do. Keep plenty of water available for them at all times. John Mikesell, owner of Izzy’s Place, A dog Bakery in Carmel, can be reached at john.mikesell@att.net.

Adding basement wet bar Remodeling by Larry Greene

ORIGINAL BASEMENT: This home is located in the Village of West Clay on the west side of Carmel. The current owners purchased the home in 2006 as a spec home with a finished basement. “The basement was considered “finished” by the builder in that it had drywall up and a bathroom, but it was not really a nice place to hang out. Even though we are empty nesters, we wanted to be able to use the space more.” WET BAR DETAILS: The new bar includes under cabinet and pendant lighting, a new Kohler black cast iron sink and a Moen Brantford faucet in oil rubbed bronze finish. The cabinetry is maple wood stained in a cordovan color with a licorice glaze. The floor tile is 13” x 13” porcelain tile in Ferrara Brown while the new tile backsplash is a glass copper mosaic mix with Kahlua cream colored grout. COUNTERTOP BUDGETING: “The granite countertops in the bar area hit the budget quite hard, but I talked with my friend who is a realtor, who told me that at the price point of our neighborhood, buyers would expect higher-end materials like granite. My first choice was an exotic granite but the cost was too high, so I chose another color. We decided to not put granite on the TV cabinet in order to keep within our budget. The solid surface countertop still looks great

and adding molding to the stock cabinets gave them a high-end look.” NEW TV CABINET: A new built-in cabinet was designed and built to house the new TV including recessed lighting, thermo foil cabinets, new hardware and electrical outlets. “Building the cabinetry for the TV allowed us to install a surround sound system we already had but had not been using.”

READY FOR GRANDCHILDREN: “We now envision our grandchildren coming down here even more than they already do. We always planned on adding a wet bar, and the plumbing was already set for it to go in the area we wanted it to be.”
