OUR VIEWS

It is our position that the newly opened Noblesville trails will help support the growth and beauty of Northeast Hamilton County. The scenic nine miles of trails – starting at the courthouse square – highlight the White River, Forest Park, the active Nickel Plate Railroad, Morse Park and Potters Bridge. With many of the historic amenities Noblesville offers being overshadowed by growing commercial and residential projects, this is a beneficial way to showcase those beautiful assets to the growing community and re-introduce them to those who have lived here through all the growth. A future extension called the “Riverwalk” will carry the trail southward under S.R. 32. Though the Greenways Foundation is not affiliated with Indy Parks, it supports the Indy Greenways Web site at no cost to the city of Indianapolis and provides amenities and services for the various Indy Greenways trails. Through the collaborated efforts of these foundations, the biking, walking and rollerblading asphalt trails provide a lasting asset to the community and citizens of Noblesville while continuing to promote health and fitness to all of Hamilton County.

Billion here, billion there

It is our position that all citizens, whether claiming liberal or conservative bias, should be concerned about the irresponsible addiction to deficit spending exhibited by our elected officials. During the first nine months of this year, Federal spending exceeded tax revenue by more than one trillion dollars. Fingers are pointed across the aisle, but neither party seems capable of accepting responsibility. When an entity experiences a cash flow shortage, ultimately it must cut overhead. When a bureaucrat is faced with the same crisis, they seem to shift responsibility and demand an increase in borrowing capacity. Hard-working citizens and risk -taking entrepreneurs must pay for these public employees and programs. If police, fire, and school employees are required, let local governments ask the people directly for the authority to expand taxes as many of our communities are doing with public schools. Don’t send dollars to Washington to get pennies back. We should ask ourselves: if we have a shortage of food will the problem be solved by inviting additional guests to dinner. If we conclude that the answer is no, one should also conclude that our current economic malaise will not be improved by bringing more overhead onto our collective balance sheet.

From the backshop Kudos: IU sophomore Pantos a rising achiever We were thrilled to learn last Wednesday about a high-profile admission award bestowed on Westfield resident and Indiana University sophomore Alexander Pantos. The school granted him and a Mooresville woman the School of Public and Environmental Affairs Academic Admission Award for fall semester, which begins next week. IU says the $2,000 award, created for the school’s highest-achieving newly admitted students, is based on the IU cumulative grade point average. Pantos is working on a Bachelor of Science degree in arts management. The award recognizes students entering the school who have distinguished themselves academically. Congratulations to both parties. ••• Follow this lead: Boone County commissioners made a magnificent and significant decision last week in making sales of “Spice,” the synthetic “incense” that, when smoked, is supposed to resemble an amped-up marijuana high and may well end in death for the user. Not only should Hamilton County follow suit immediately, Gov. Mitch Daniels should do as his Tennessee counterpart, Phil Bredesen, did earlier this year, and have one among the Legislature sponsor a bill, which he can sign into law, making it illegal to

Brian Kelly & Steve Greenberg possess or sell “Spice” and other products. ••• FYI to roundabout drivers: If you’re on the inside lane of a two-lane roundabout, you may not (legally) exit to the right. Especially without looking. Signs. Read and understand them. ••• A noble gesture: The Meijer store in Carmel is partnering with the Westfield food pantry, Open Doors, to help stock its shelves with food. Through Meijer’s “Simply Give” Program, now through Sept. 25, the grocery store will match its customers’ donations up to $100,000 to help Open Doors. It’s a terrific gesture by the grocery concern, and it can mean only good things for the pantry. Makes total sense to us.

The balance of power COMMENTARY By Terry Anker An unpleasant business negotiation in which I currently find myself reminds me of how quickly the balance of power can shift in a relationship. One can go from an invaluable member of the team to a pariah in an instant. But mostly, the stress and hurt feelings associated with such gamesmanship has put me into a contemplative state of mind regarding the dynamics that hold together – or destroy – everyday interpersonal relationships. But isn’t each intersection with another human being fraught with the same potential for discord? We are pack animals. And we largely rely upon one another to find security and prosperity. But in such a construct, a hierarchy of authority is a necessity. And when a disruption of that hierarchy occurs, the power does not dissipate; it simply is transferred to another willing vessel. A recent conversation with some younger associates illustrated the point. They asked what my generation had done to ruin the ethic of the up-and-coming generation. First, I argued, the up-and-coming generation was not ruined but

is simply maturing. I have confidence it will blossom. Ultimately, I hold my own generation’s comfort with divorce as the most important singular cause for the rising generation’s alleged sense of entitlement and abhorrence of accountability. Traditional families had two parents whose loyalty largely remained one to the other. Divorced families can allow for a bartering of loyalties with the children ultimately in possession of a considerable share of the power. “I will come to Christmas and be nice to your latest girlfriend, if you buy me the new Prada bag.” Certainly, not all traditional families are functional, nor are all broken families dysfunctional; but the opportunity to use power to one’s advantage is an intoxicant unable to be denied by most thinking adults and certainly not by a hormonal teenager.

COMMENTARY By Danielle Wilson Did you go to the Jonas Brothers concert? I had purchased tickets way back in the spring when they first went on sale as birthday presents for my older daughter and her best friend. My youngest was going to also tag along, in addition to the co-financial backer, Grams. Because I refused to pay more than 40 bucks per ticket for ‘tween heart throbs, my only option was lawn seats. Fine. Good. I’ll take five. Can’t wait. The day before the performance, Grams asked if we could include my husband’s, aunt who was visiting from Florida. We checked our seats to see if there was an available ticket nearby, but couldn’t find section K on Verizon’s online venue map. So we called the center, got no answer, and then decided since the concert wasn’t sold out, she could just grab a ticket at the concert. The following evening, we piled into my van – six females aged 6 to 68 – and headed off to the corn fields. It was hot and balmy, but clear. On the way, I realized I’d left my cell phone at home. So had Grams, but we had no time to retrieve them. No worries; I managed fine without a phone at my first concert (Cheap Trick!) We parked, hiked to the amphitheater, and joined the quarter-of-a-mile-long line to get in. The girls handled the wait well, and when the gate opened, the line moved fairly swiftly. Once inside, we split up – me with the girls and Grams with the ticketless aunt. We agreed to meet at our seats. Problem was, we didn’t actually have seats. Though listed on our tickets as Section K, Seats 33-37, they were phantom numbers that corresponded to nothing except empty grassland, which was now filling quickly with far better prepared families. We had no blanket, no beach chairs, and no idea how we would meet up with our elders. Luckily, the girls were oblivious to my mounting Page 1 stress level and anti-Verizon thoughts. Did I mention I was wear-

ing a white linen skirt? Miraculously, I was able to spot Grams and Aunt among the hoards about 20 minutes later. Grams was also furious; Aunt’s lawn ticket cost less than half of what I had paid in May. Even worse, Aunt’s back wouldn’t be able to handle four hours of sitting on sloping grass. Through divine mercy, I had a chair and blanket stashed in my car. But wait! Verizon doesn’t allow “Pass Outs.” They did, however, take pity on two “elderly” ladies hoping to get to said car and back with said provisions. Disaster averted. The 7 p.m. concert started 35 minutes late, and the opening act was a lame promo for an upcoming Disney movie. Demi Lovato, even with her amazing hair, is no Joe, Kevin or Nick. At 9:15 p.m., we were still waiting for the main attraction. Were they even here? What was the hold up? How could a Disneysponsored event run this late, when their target audience’s bedtime was 10 minutes ago? All I could think was, “This was a huge waste of time and money.” And then, it happened. Lasers and pyrotechnics and smoke erupted amid the deafening squeals of 10,000 sugar-crazed girls. The Jonas Brothers were in the HOUSE! And they were good. Really good. I found myself forgetting all about the tickets, the waiting, the heat, and the inevitable hearing loss, and simply enjoyed an evening under the stars with my daughters. Kudos to Disney and Verizon for avoiding the nasty-gram I’d been mentally composing and creating a night to remember. Peace out. Danielle Wilson is a Carmel resident and contributing columnist.

Tour De Carmel ready to kick off its sixth year By Elizabeth Noel Current in Westfield Carmel Clay Parks and Recreation and St. Vincent Sports Performance will sponsor the sixth annual Tour de Carmel Sept. 11. The bike ride begins at the Monon Community Center and winds 20 miles throughout Carmel. According to Lindsay Labas, marketing manager of Carmel Clay Parks and Recreation, the St. Vincent Tour de Carmel is one of Carmel’s most popular events. “I think it’s so special because it is a family event,” she said. “It is a bike ride, not a race, so people can choose how quickly they want to go and really spend time with each other.” The Tour de Carmel will also feature an adaptive 10-mile race for participants with special needs. Staff and volunteers will be scattered throughout the group along the adaptive route for extra help. Along the route, riders can stop at rest areas to replenish with beverages and listen to the local bands that will be scattered throughout the ride. Once bikers finish the race, they will be greeted with entertainment and refreshments. Though the park board started talking about this bike ride in the 1990s, it was too busy to organize it. After an “alternative transportation” meeting seven years ago, the board decided the bike ride would be a great way to promote the Monon Greenway and the trails throughout the city.

You can’t go wrong with a charity golf tournament COMMENTARY By Ken Kingshill As I have written on previous occasions, the Westfield Rotary Club has accomplished much in its two-year existence. From successfully hosting a foreign exchange student for a year to planning and designing an inclusive sensory park for kids of all abilities, most of that work has been of the roll-up-your-sleeves variety. Now we are switching gears a little bit and venturing into the fundraising realm. There’s only so much blood, sweat, and tears will produce. The rest kinda depends on cash.  Therefore, the Westfield Rotary Club will hold its first annual Charity Golf* Tournament Sept. 13 at the Wood Wind Golf Club in Westfield. Proceeds will benefit the Westfield Youth Scholarship Fund and local Westfield Rotary Club projects. Please join us as a player or a sponsor or donate an item for the silent auction. The cost is $125 per player or $450 per foursome. That price includes 18 holes of golfing fun, a free golf clinic conducted by the Wood Wind Golf Academy, a box lunch, the opportunity to spend more money at the silent auction, and a buffet dinner catered by Keltie’s. For a golf outing, you

What would a golf event be without several levels of sponsorships available for those interested in marketing opportunities? Also don’t forget the chance to donate an item or service to the silent auction.  If you’re interested in joining us Sept. 13 as a player, sponsor, and/or donor, please contact Jim Dahl at 317-705-9951 or Will Smith at 317-810-9452. Oh, and hurry, as I’m told foursomes are going fast.    *Disclaimer: I am not, nor have I ever been a golfer; as such I am in no way responsible for any and all golfing faux pas, blunders, or breaches of etiquette, no matter how egregious or obnoxious, which may or may not have been committed in this article. (There was some reference in the information I received about a shotgun, but I have no idea what it means or what on earth it could have to do with golf, so I’ve chosen to ignore it.)

This weekend’s Westfield Safety Festival has a lot to offer for local residents By Brandie Bohney Current in Westfield The Westfield Safety Festival is expanding in its second year, and Fire Marshal Garry Harling couldn’t be happier. Harling brought a little bit of his former department with him when he came to Westfield three years ago. He had been part of the Washington Township Fire Department, and when it merged with the Indianapolis Fire Department, Harling was offered what he calls “the greatest offer” – to become part of the Westfield Fire Department.  Harling brought with him not only two decades of experience, but also an idea for a citywide “safety festival.” For 18 years, Harling had helped run the Washington Township Fire Safety Festival, and when he came to Westfield, he had no intention

of leaving that behind. “I came to Westfield, but I did not forget my roots,” he said.   Still, a fire safety festival wasn’t enough for Harling. He wanted something more, something bigger.  “Instead of being a fire department festival, I wanted it to be a city of Westfield safety festival,” Harling said. “So we incorporated the Westfield police department, the public works, the Hamilton County Health Department, the Red Cross: We’re bringing everybody together.”   Now in its second year, the Westfield Safety Festival will be this Saturday, Aug. 28, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. It is a one-day opportunity for residents to learn important safety tips and have hands-on experiences with a wide variety of public safety equipment.

Duke Energy

Angeline Protogere, media relations representative for Duke Energy, explains that not only will Duke explains safety dealing with power lines and buried cables, it will also demonstrate the danger of exposed wires with the use of a hot dog. “The reason they use a hot dog is that they actually energize a line to 7,200 volts, and show what happens when that hot dog – like a finger on a hand – makes contact with it,” she said. 

CPR demonstration

(Westfield Fire Department and St. Vincent Carmel Hospital) The Westfield Fire Department will begin the demonstration with a heartattack simulation and information on how to help a cardiac emergency. St. Vincent Hospital will follow with a demonstration on how to save a child or infant who is choking. 

Westfield Safety Festival demonstrations roster 10 a.m. – Festival opens 10:30 a.m. – CPR 11 a.m. – Public works 11:30 a.m. – Police K9 12 p.m. – Midwest Search Dogs 12:30 p.m. – Duke Energy 1 p.m. – First arriving apparatus 1:30 p.m. – Police K9 2 p.m. – Project Life Saver 2:30 p.m. – Midwest Search Dogs 3 p.m. – Auto extrication 3:30 p.m. – Duke Energy 4 p.m. – Thank you

Project Lifesaver equips family members who might wander from home – those with Alzheimer’s, autism, dementia, or other conditions – with radio-frequency bracelets or anklets in order to easily locate them in the event that they stray and cannot find their way home.  Coordinator David McCormick explains that PLS will be showing how the equipment its program uses can find wandering family members far more quickly than a standard search. “I’m going to put one of our tracking devices on my daughter,” McCormick said. “I’ll have the receiver and demonstrate how we’re able to locate an individual using the tracking component and the receiver.”

Auto extrication

“We’re going to crash two cars out there, cut it out (with the Jaws of Life), pull somebody out, and load them into an ambulance and take them away,” Harling said.  “We’ll do what is necessary to extract a person from a crashed car.” Paddocks will be bringing in previously wrecked cars, which will be placed in a simulated accident scene, and a volunteer will be extricated from one of the vehicles.  Submitted photo

Upcoming fashion show to raise heart disease awareness By Danielle Turnbull Current in Westfield Mary & Martha’s Exceedingly Chic Boutique, Clarian North Hospital of Carmel and 11 models with personal experience with heart disease will all be taking part in a fundraiser for the American Heart Association this Friday. The Heartbeat of Style Fashion Show benefiting the American Heart Association will take place at 5:30 p.m. on Friday in the Grand Atrium at Clarian North Hospital. Indy Dine will be providing appetizers and drinks for the guests. Ology Day Spa will be present, providing chair massages and other services to guests, and 10 percent of the spa’s profits at the event will go to the American Heart Association. A unique part of the event centers on the 11 models.  “The models are not your ordinary, skinny models,” Carly Temple, coordinator of patient experience and guest relations at Clarian North Hospital, said. “They are cardiac patients.”  Lisa Stiles, certified case manager and a registered nurse at Clarian North Hosptial,

is one example. She has experience with open-heart surgery and will be a model in the Heartbeat of Style show. As a child, Stules had open-heart surgery in 1969. It was one of the first open-heart surgeries conducted on the east coast. “I am a myriad of things to cardiovascular disease,” Stiles said. “It’s very near and dear to my heart.”  Not only is it a passion for Stiles, but heart disease is an area of passion for Temple, as well. She has a grandfather who has had a heart attack and a mother who has heart problems. She said both of those personal connections have stirred her passion for the subject.  “It has enabled me to really want to make a change,” Temple said. “And every little bit counts.”  Although the event is being held to raise money for the American Heart Association, Temple said the focus is really on raising awareness. She hopes women will think and start paying more attention to their bodies and the signs it gives them.  “My goal is not to get the most money,” Temple said. “My goal is to raise awareness.”

Healthy and great-tasting desserts? First step: Toss the sugar RECIPES By Chef Ozzie Many people are looking for ways to enjoy the foods they love – apple pie, banana bread, chocolate cake with frosting, etc. – without the sugar. Whether they’re one of the more than 23 million people who suffer from diabetes or they just want to watch their sugar and carbohydrate intake, consumers today have no shortage of options on the grocery shelves. When I travel to food expos, diabetes conferences and women’s shows, I’m often asked how to incorporate sugar substitutes in baking and cooking. As many consumers and food editors have come to find out, not all sweeteners are created equally. Some sugar substitutes actually contain sugar as a “sugar blend;” others have a bitter after taste, and many are just too difficult to use because they don’t measure cup for cup like sugar. I recommend finding the sugar substitute that works best for you and pay attention to the conversion. Another consideration when using sugar substitutes is the baking time. It often needs to be decreased slightly. For example, cookies or brownies may need three to five minutes less time in the oven, while cakes can come out seven to 10 minutes sooner than the recipes specifies. For those cake recipes that call for sugar, there are sugar-substitute options available, but ours is the only one that doesn’t contain sugar yet measures cup for cup like regular sugar. Some of the products on the market are actually blends; ours is primarily xylitol, a natural sweetener derived from fruits and vegetables and known for its added health benefits. (Many sugar-free gum/ mint manufacturers have used xylitol in their products since the ’70s.) Of course, it’s great on cereal too, and in many recipes as a simple substitution for sugar. So, check out my recipe for No-Dairy Chocolate Cake or any of the recipes at www.idealsweet.com. I’d love to hear about your baking experience. You can find me on Facebook – look for Chef Ozzie – or on Lifetime Television’s show, “The Balancing Act.”

Caution: Sugar accelerates aging HEALTH By Angela LaSalle M.D. Most people would think it unhealthy to walk to the sugar bowl and down six teaspoons of the powdery white stuff, and do it repeatedly throughout the day. Yet many of us do just that by ingesting foods and drinks that contain sugar. Four grams of sugar equals one teaspoon. Eating something containing 26 grams of sugar is the same as dumping six and a half teaspoons into our body. A quick review of the popular brands of regular sodas revealed a startling 40 to 46 grams of sugar per can. That’s an average of 10 teaspoons of sugar, nearly ¼ cup. So what are the health consequences of such a high sugar intake? We know about weight gain and diabetes, but the diabolical nature of sugar isn’t just about excessive calorie intake. Sugar accelerates aging and disease by attaching itself to proteins in the body, which can disrupt their function and lead to disease producing inflammation. The medical term is “glycation,” and a simplified example of this is how sugar caramelizes or causes browning when heated with fats or proteins in foods. When reading labels look for other forms of sugar such as: • High-fructose corn syrup • Concentrated fruit juice

• Dextrose • Glucose • Molasses • Corn syrup • Maltose • Sucrose, • Xylitol or mannitol. So whether it’s wrinkles, degenerative arthritis, heart disease or diabetes you’re trying to prevent, it’s a good idea to start by taking a look at how much sugar you are really eating. Try giving yourself a visual makeover: Add up the number of grams of sugar in foods you commonly eat, divide that number by four, and then measure out the number of teaspoons of sugar that represents. You may be shocked at the pile of sugar mounting on your countertop. The stickiness you feel when you are cleaning up a sugary drink or food off your kitchen counter is the same thing that can happen inside your body. Remember, sugar damages our body’s proteins, and sticky protein equals accelerated aging. Angela LaSalle, M.D. practices integrative medicine with the Indiana Health Group in Carmel and is board certified in family medicine. For more information, visit, www. angelalasallemd.com.

Oh my! Do I have a massage rant for you! MASSAGE By Sally Feldman I think at least once a week I hear someone say, “I don’t want anyone else touching me but my spouse” or, “I would never have a massaaaaage” or, “So, do you give happy endings?” So many misconceptions, so little time. After becoming certified, I was shocked with the amount of archaic thinking there was about massage therapy. Do physical therapists get hassled like this? Chiropractors? No, they don’t. But, because there have been prostitutes over the years “calling” themselves massage therapists, we authentic therapists have to take the heat, the jokes, the innuendo and (yes) the fear of being compromised inappropriately in some way. Anyone who has picked up a newspaper has seen the debacle … and after the vice squad raid and the newsflash at 11 about the “girls” on Central who offered a little sumpin sumpin

Do you have an idea for a

– we certified massage therapists have to put up with unprecedented parallels in our industry that reeks of sleazy. No fair. I’m still paying off my school loans. I say: enough. Please, don’t judge massage therapy until you make an appointment with a certified massage therapist. Heck, we spend weeks at a time on proper, appropriate draping alone and months on end studying our code of ethics and standards of practice. This type of silliness is just that and it must stop. As they say in “Father of the Bride” …“It’s the 90’s Mr. Banks.” Okay, I’ll calm down now. After all, it’s 2010. Go. Fight! Win! Let the massages begin.

Being understood out of context COMMENTARY By David Cain I was on a plane three years ago, getting my carry-on out of the overhead bin. Just then, a gentleman from behind me stood up and, as we were crammed in the aisle, leaned forward and said to me, “You ride, man?” I looked at him awkwardly and slowly nudged forward in the aisle. He followed me out of the plane and asked in the corridor, “So, you got a bike.” I answered a polite “no” and kept moving. He fell back, disappointed by my lack of interest.      Weeks later, it happened again. As I sat next to a man on the plane, he stated enthusiastically, “Do you ride?” I didn’t even really understand what he was asking me and didn’t want to pursue it, so I again responded with “no,” and we sat quietly the rest of the flight. A few weeks went by and, again, as I was leaving a meeting a man said, “You into bikes?” Now, that time I heard what he said. I answered, “Not really.” I mean I do have a nice mountain bike, but how would this gent know that?  For more than a year I would get similar comments. I could never make the connection.  Then one sunny day I was heading into a meeting. As I walked by a motorcycle in the parking lot, I caught a glimpse of the brand name on

the bike. It said Ducati. I glanced down and it was the same name sewn on my bag. I stopped in my tracks as 20 conversations over the last 18 months suddenly made sense.  I had purchased this bag from Tumi and honestly never paid much attention to Ducati written on the side. For this entire time, I thought it was water. As it turns out, that’s Dasani, not Ducati. I thought my fashionable bag was subtly promoting water when, in reality, it was a magnet for conversations about fast bikes.    Random men still approach me to discuss my bike and now I know what they’re talking about. There is a lesson here less subtle than the embroidered brand name on my bag. If there is a possibility that your brand name won’t make sense out of context (on a bag instead of a bike), you might consider putting some identification with it. For example, Tabor Law Firm by itself might not completely tell the story. However, Tabor Law Firm, your partner in life-changing injuries, tells you what they do. Are you understood out of context?    David Cain works at MediaSauce, a digital media and online marketing company in Carmel.

MONEY MATTERS With the rising cost of college tuition, do you still think it’s worth it for students to attend? “Over the last year, I have noticed a lot of people planning early. Also, I’ve heard a lot of kids say they plan to live at home to help with the costs.” Kellie Stewart Director of guidance at Westfield High School “In the last five years, I’ve seen less financial aid given out as I sent my own kids off to college. There’s lots of competition for federal and state financial aid.” Karrie Larrison WHS councilor “Scholarships have been really easy to get for us. So, the higher cost doesn’t affect us that much.” Holly Clark and Jordyn Thuofanis Westfield

WHAT’S IT WORTH

NOW OPEN

Primrose school MY OPINION

$

329.9 K

Type: Traditional Age: Built in 1992 Location: Near 146th Street and Spring Mill Road. Neighborhood: Spring Mill Pond is a custom home community with mature trees and larger lots with a community pool, playground, tennis and basketball courts. Square footage: 3,815, including 971 in the finished basement Rooms: This four-bedroom home has a two-story entry, main floor office, formal living and dining rooms, family room with gas fireplace, built-in bookshelves, and spacious kitchen with center island, planning desk, stainless appliances and hardwoods. Upstairs offers four bedrooms plus a bonus room. There is also a finished basement with recreation room and plenty of storage. The exterior has a three-car garage, screened porch, fenced backyard and mature trees. Strengths: The seller has priced this home very aggressively and it is a great value for the neighborhood. Of all the active listings in Spring Mill Pond, this is currently priced as the least expensive. There are large trees and ponds throughout the neighborhood. Challenges: There is not a full basement. Some comparable listings have solid surface kitchen counter tops, and this home does not.

After moving to the Carmel area from Colorado, Scott and Mindy Smith could not find a school they thought felt right for their children. “Our son was at a Primrose in Colorado,” Scott said. “We just didn’t have that family feeling at any of the schools in the area, and we decided to take on a new adventure.” That adventure included opening a new location of Primrose in Carmel. “It’s something that is needed in the Carmel area,” Scott said. “We love seeing the kids progress both academically and socially.” Primrose offers a new experience for children and parents in the Carmel area. The school has a modified curriculum for each class. “One of our big things is curriculum. We have a standard curriculum that is developed by early childhood educators from our corporate office,” Scott said. “Once we get that curriculum, we tailor it for each class to help the children develop academically and socially.” One of the other things Primrose focuses on is having age appropriate classrooms and areas for the children. “We have four separate playgrounds,” Scott said. “The playgrounds are for each of the different age groups.”

Simplify your check-writing Habits are habit forming

GRAMMAR LESSON By Brandie Bohney A few years back, one of the debit card companies was running a series of commercials you may recall. Each one contained a busy, bustling store or restaurant where things were running like clockwork and there was much spinning and gyrating and movement until someone would pay with a check.  Then the music would screech to a halt, packages or plates would go flying, and there was much aggravation. Then the check-writer would finish paying in awkward silence as everyone watched, aghast. The next person would pay with a debit card, and the music would wind back up with all the movement from before the pesky check-writer appeared.  I got to thinking about these check-writing commercials recently because of today’s topic. I’ve always felt self-conscious when there’s someone behind me in line and I have to write a check –it always seems to take forever with the next person in queue staring me down. So I always look for ways to make my check-writing process faster. Over the years, my signature has gotten shorter, sloppier, and less legible (but faster). I abbreviate whatever I can. And I always eliminate the word and from the numbers I have to write out as words.  That last part is a biggie. Not only does it save

me time in writing checks, but it’s actually the way numbers are supposed to be written. When writing out 211, the words should be two hundred eleven, not two hundred and eleven. Eliminating the and is not only appropriate (the and historically represents addition in spoken equations), but it also saves time, space, and effort.  The same is true when you speak numbers, too, and that’s where things get really hairy. Virtually no one follows the no-and rule when speaking numbers. Have you ever heard someone refer to the Disney Dalmatian movie as One Hundred One Dalmatians? No. It’s always One Hundred and One Dalmatians. Even the Disney voice-over guy pronounces it with the and.    I find it mildly irritating to hear numbers pronounced with and, but I understand the mistake because it’s so frequent. I’ve even caught myself doing it from time to time. Still, it’s important to know the appropriate way to speak and write numbers, and in any formal document or discussion, care should be taken to do so correctly. But it probably won’t stop the glares you get as you write a check at Wal-Mart.

PARENTING By Becky Kapsalis I’m happy to report I’ve learned a new phrase to use on my kids and grandkids when I feel the need for a teachable moment without making them cower from guilt or cringe with fear of recrimination. That phrase is “(Child’s name), that’s a bad habit. What’s a good habit you can replace it with?” I’m equally sad to report it’s taken me all these years to learn this approach. I’ve developed the bad habit of thinking I had to tell my kids how to behave. If I knew then what I know now, I would get into the good habit of asking them how they think they need to be behaving, helping them form good behavior habits on their own (as in the habit of self-accountability). Some experts say that it takes 21 days of a consistent pattern to form a habit-good or bad. If that’s the case, the good news is that any bad habit can be reversed into a consistently good habit in just 21 days. Sean Covey (“The 7 habits of highly effective teens”) writes, “Our habits can make us or break us. We become what we repeatedly do.”

Examples of some good habits: • Exercising regularly. • Planning ahead • Showing respect for others Examples of some bad habits: • Thinking negatively • Feeling inferior • Blaming others” When we notice bad habits in our kids, the very best approach is to use my two favorite phrases. Bad habit … bad choice. Good habit … good choice. It’s surprising how we don’t have to say another word.  Our kids get the message. If it’s appropriate and you have a positive example of what is a good habit, then by all means, expand your comments. Otherwise, step aside and let your kid decide the best approach to forming good habits from the bad. Make sense? Let me know what you think. Hugs!

DISPATCHES » Babies steal pet’s spotlight – A new study of pet owners in Indiana finds that parenthood does affect the way people think about and treat their domesticated furballs. The study involved survey questions about how much time people spent with their animals, what they did together, and how often the pets got medical care. "People with children spent less time with their animals and took them to the vet less often," said David Blouin, a cultural sociologist at Indiana University South Bend. -www.msnbc.com

Sleeping in is sweet – for you and your dog

DOGS By John Mikesell Five things to do when your dog wakes you up too early every day: Rule out medical conditions. Make sure your dog doesn’t have a legitimate reason for getting up early. Find out if he has a urinary tract infection or his digestive system is upset, or if he has some other medical issue that affects his elimination habits. Tire him out the night before. A tired dog is a well-behaved, happy dog, and a late sleeper. Exercise uses up much of the energy he presently can’t wait to wake you up with, and it also releases endorphins, which regulate mood, producing a feeling of well-being. This also may benefit your own sleep habits. It works the same with humans. Feed him earlier/better; make “last call” later. Increase the time between your dog’s last meal and his last bathroom opportunity to minimize the chance he’s waking you up because he really has to go. It only takes a few “I really have to go” mornings to set an early-riser routine. Don’t forget that a high-quality diet is more digestible, which reduces fecal output, which reduces early morning urgency. Reduce stimuli in the bedroom. The less there is to awaken your dog, the less likely he is to awaken you. Close the drapes. Turn off the TV. Turn on a white noise machine or soft classical music.

Train him to sleep in. If these management solutions don’t work, you may be able to train him to sleep later. If your normal wake up time is 6:30, and he wakes you up at 6:15, for one week set your alarm at 6:05. For the second week 6:10 and so until you reach 6:30. Do not get up before the alarm goes off. This should condition him to the sound of the alarm as his cue to get up. Of course, if you have young children who start running through the house at 5 a.m. or garbage trucks rumbling down your street, then all bets are off.   John Mikesell, owner of Izzy’s Place, A dog Bakery in Carmel, can be reached at john.mikesell@att.net.

PETS OF THE WEEK Cali is a 10-month-old female chocolate American pit bull terrier mix. Cali is an outgoing girl who is very gentle when taking treats. She can get a bit more excited about her food bowl, and she tends to protect it a bit; this is a correctable behavior for an experienced owner or trainer, but until she learns to share she needs a home with children age 10 or older. Cali is a gorgeous girl who knows the commands “sit” and “down,” and she is more than willing to learn more. Hera is a 2-year-old female tabby DSH. Hera is a little shy when meeting someone knew, but with a little patience, she will warm up and enjoy attention. She arrived at the shelter March 22 when a nice person found her wandering the streets. She is a petite girl with a tendency to be a bit skittish around loud noises and new situations, so she might prefer a quiet home. Hera is a very sweet girl who only wants a home to call her own where there is a lap to lay on and make her the happiest kitty ever.

Choosing the right search engine TECHNOLOGY By Gary Hubbard There are a number of search engines on the Internet, but Google is by far the most frequently used by the masses, performing more than 60 percent of all searches, totaling more than 90 million per day. The flies go where the honey is… This popularity, combined with the trust most users have with whatever Google serves up, gives cybercriminals an opening to fool Google’s indexing system when breaking news stories become trending topics. When breaking news generates lots of search traffic, cybercriminals quickly create Web sites that claim to have information about the breaking news, but when clicked, they re-direct the visitor to a rogue Web site (most commonly a fake anti-virus site). So to answer your question, Google is the most-targeted search engine for what is coined “poisoned keywords,” based on what is trending around the Internet. Barracuda Labs released a study that claims that of all malware served up by search engines in a two-month period, Google came in tops with 69 percent, Yahoo came in a distant second with 18 percent, and Bing came in at 12 percent. The most popular search topics targeted by the cybercriminals were spyware and spyware removal, followed by entertainment news. But what they target will change with what the masses are searching for. Google is still the most relevant of search engines, so I would not suggest that you stop using it for standard searches, but I would suggest that you adjust your search behavior to switch to some other resource when you are looking for information on breaking news. At the moment, based on the research performed by Barracuda Labs, the safest place to search for information on breaking news is … Twitter!

Their study reports that only 1 percent of malware generated by search comes from Twitter, making it both the fastest and safest place that breaking news can be researched. Because smartphones are so popular, it’s likely that someone or a group of people on Twitter will tweet about anything that is happening in the world (Hudson plane crash, the revolt in Iran, earthquakes, etc.), and it’s easy to find posts because Twitter’s search results are simple to digest. For those who have never used Twitter as a search engine (http://search.twitter.com), you may be surprised how much easier it is to find real information quickly. Not only is it a very efficient way to get info on breaking news, it’s an excellent way to do research for just about anything that you are interested in buying. If, for instance, you were interested in buying a Nikon D3000 digital SLR camera, searching Google would give you the usual 3 million results with propaganda and reviews that were posted anywhere from yesterday to six months ago. With Twitter, however, when you search Nikon D3000 you’ll see comments that were posted minutes ago, and it will continue to alert you of new “tweets” about the camera if you just stay on the page. If you have a Twitter account, you can also ask the person that posted the comment clarifying questions, because they are likely still online. Asking four or five people who already own the camera your questions sure shortens the research time; give it a try!

Revolutionizing a view for one local homeowner REMODELING By Larry Greene INITIAL SITUATION: This home, located on Morse Reservoir in Cicero, included the original smaller kitchen and several interior walls that blocked the view to the water. The homeowner wanted to completely update the kitchen and, most importantly, come up with a new floor plan eliminating walls to give them a direct view to the water. DESIGN PHASE: The challenge for the design team was to figure out if it was feasible to remove the interior walls that blocked the water view. A structural engineer determined that the interior walls could all be safely removed since they were all deemed to be non-load bearing. Finally the existing 8’ high ceiling was replaced with a higher tray ceiling designed to make the room feel more spacious. PROJECT SCHEDULE: The design phase, including the structural engineering, took place over five weeks. Several floor plans were presented. The final design also incorporated changes to the adjacent laundry/mud room. The construction phase spread out over approximately eight weeks. FINAL PRODUCT: The owner decided to upgrade to semicustom premium alder cabinets with a nutmeg stain covered with a light brown highlight. The new cabinetry included a custom 30” wide range hood and decorative glass doors above the sink. Some added features of the cabinetry included a corner Lazy Susan with no center rod and all wood carousels and a new microwave cabinet. The team also substituted drawers instead

Choosing the perfect area rug for your home INTERIORS By Vicky Earley The formula for determining the best size for an area rug is not going to be found in a geometry text book, nor is it an exact science. Because the type of room and furniture placement should factor into your decision, there are variables to consider. The first step is always to measure the space using a tape measure. One of the most common mistakes is to rely on a visual measurement of the space. A rug can look quite different in a store than at home. Company C, a manufacturer of colorful wool rugs, offers the following suggestions on the subject of size determination. Living or family room • It is recommended selecting a size that allows each piece of furniture to be completely on or off the rug. The exception to this rule is a sofa, because it is common for the back legs of a sofa to hang off the rug. • Make sure to account for any heating vents or doorways. • Depending on the usage of the room, you may want to consider traffic patterns. • If there’s a hearth in the room, consider purchasing another small rug for placement in front of the fireplace. • Coordinate the size of the rug with the size of your coffee table. • An 8x11 rug brings together most furniture groupings nicely. Dining and breakfast rooms • When selecting a room size rug for the dining room, you need to measure the length and width of your table. Don’t forget to include the table leaf if you use it frequently. • It is best when the rug is large enough so the back legs of the dining room chairs can be placed on it. This will avoid chair legs getting caught on the edge of the rug when guests are

pushing their chairs in and out. Bedroom • When measuring for a bedroom, you must first determine if you prefer one room size rug or several rugs around the bed. • When considering one room-sized rug, it should be large enough for you to take a step or two when getting out of bed. • If you have one bed centered in the room, you can place a rug at the foot of the bed and one on each side. If you have two beds in the room, you can add one more rug in between them. • This is the perfect place to play around with rug sizes. Try a round rug or a rectangular rug placed at a diagonal underneath the bed. Entry Way • Consider a material that can handle the high-traffic areas. • Wool has the advantage of lanolin, which is natural moisture repellant. • Make sure the door can open and close over the rug. Consider the thickness or pile height of the room. • If it’s a long hallway, you can also consider using two 5-foot runners. If you are computer literate, try their rug planner, which can be found at http://www.companyc.com/roomplanner.htm. If not, just tape the actual space out with low-tack painters tape. Your rug is the foundation for the remainder of the room, so planning is key!

You’re telling me the dishwasher doesn’t have a realignment cycle? HUMOR By Dick Wolfsie From the very beginning of our relationship, my wife Mary Ellen was determined to root out any potential male chauvinism on my part. If there is a little piglet in me, I have honestly tried to overcome it. It kills me to say this, but a strong marriage is based on equality. That’s why I let her rake leaves, grill ribs and do most of the driving. For three decades, I have also shared with my wife the chores of loading and unloading the dishwasher. I’ve hated every single second of this responsibility. I’d rather clean the toilet, poke a bees’ nest with a broom handle or clean out the gutters with a teaspoon. Last week, my wife informed me I was now forever relieved of dishwasher duty. “Just scrape the dishes and stack them in the sink,” she told me. “But why?” “You’re terrible at loading, and it seems to get worse by the day,” she said. “Ever wonder why when you unload dishes the next morning, everything you flung into the machine willy-nilly has miraculously lined up perfectly in the appropriate slots? Who do you think did that?” “Well, it takes almost an hour to run a load of dishes and I hear a lot of odd noises, so I assumed a mechanical realignment was one of the wash cycles.” “You just toss the dishes in, any which way. What are you thinking?” “Mary Ellen, I load the dishwasher like I load our Maytag. I don’t put socks in one part of the washing machine, then my pants in another. Why would I do that with cups and saucers?” Mary Ellen says I’m getting progressively worse at unloading, as well. I simply dump the entire utensil holder into the kitchen drawer.

Clankety-clank: mission accomplished. My wife has this odd notion that you should sort the knives, spoons and forks into their own compartments. She wants them separated – even before we set the table. What kind of a waste of time is that? Mary Ellen also thinks the soup bowls, salad plates and cups should be placed in the cupboard into matching individual stacks. Where’s the pizzazz in that architectural structure? She also says I’ve been messing up the inside of our fridge. Here again everything has its proper place. Who knew? So that’s why the mustard has been moving from the top shelf to the fridge door. Why heads of lettuce have often crept south, ending up in this thing Mary Ellen says is called the “vegetable bin.” Why was I never informed of this accessory? Milk, I have learned, should always be on the top shelf. Jars of sauces and prepared foods have to go on the third shelf. That’s gotta be wrong, because when I was six, I’d swear the pickles were always staring me right in the face. Going eye to eye with Kosher dills goes back to the Old Testament. So, I am no longer permitted to load or unload the dishwasher. And I must leave my pickles, mustard and cream cheese on the counter so my wife can put them in their proper resting place. I may even have a shot at never doing laundry again. But I am not going to get complacent about my lack of accomplishments. There are beds not to be made and rugs not to be vacuumed. I’m very proud of myself. I’m doing the worst I can.

They are real jokesters at the home gym factory HUMOR By Mike Redmond No one is going to mistake me for Arnold Schwarzenegger. For one thing, I’m not fool enough to be governor of California, a state that has proven innumerable times to be ungovernable. Also, I am not exactly built like ol’ Arnie, all bulging biceps and chiseled chest. But I have dreams. No, not about trying to herd cats, also known as working with a legislature. I mean about getting all muscled up, or at least as muscled up as one can get at my advanced years. It is toward this end that I recently spent the better part of three days putting together a large, expensive and rather intimidating home gym in my garage. Oh, I should probably mention it was during the heat wave, when temperatures outside the garage were in the mid-90s. And no, the garage is not air conditioned. Now, when I call this machine intimidating, I am not exaggerating. It came in seven boxes, big ones. And heavy. Just moving them from the delivery truck to the garage added two inches to my upper arms.

Fantastic Exposure. “

Inside the boxes were confusing pieces of iron which, when assembled, would create one of the world’s finest home gyms. However, they were accompanied by instructions that went beyond confusing to inscrutable. One look at them had me wondering why I didn’t just get a Richard Simmons DVD instead. When did it become too much work for people to write instructions? Who decided that instead of put-this-here, put-that-there, tightenthe-bolt-instructions, we could do just as well with exploded drawings of the object to be assembled, accompanied by a note that said – I am not kidding – to be sure to do things in the right order, or the pieces wouldn’t fit properly? Let’s recap. In essence, I was being told to put things together in the right order, but that I would have to figure out for myself what the right order would be. Evidently, they’re real jokesters at the home gym factory. To make things even more entertaining, each S i Jabout o h n4,374 s o St. n ,Anthony Pieces. box contained That’s theVname I give for the i c e P r e s i dlittle e ndoohickeys t/ that are guaranteed to jump out of your hand e aalworkbench t o r / Moradown n a gaedrain. r I and roll R under call them St. Anthony Pieces because I always

find myself reciting the prayer to St. Anthony of Padua: “St. Anthony, St. Anthony, please come down, something’s lost and can’t be found.” How many times did I recite the prayer? Let’s just say that for a while I had St. Anthony on speed dial. And as far as I know, he’s still out there looking for a couple of washers and a four-inch stove bolt. What I’m trying to say is it wasn’t easy. What with the heat, and the goofy directions, and occasional attacks of “Holy Moley, how am I going to pay for this thing?” it probably took me three times as long to build my gym as it would have taken a normal person. I think. If I ever meet a normal person I’ll ask. But nothing worth having comes easy, and I know my gym is worth having. I know I’ll feel better and, I hope, look better because of it. If I ever start using the thing, that is. Right now I’m resting. Building a gym is quite a workout. Like governing California.
