Westfield firefighters saved a home from major loss on Aug. 17. At approximately 6 p.m., a neighbor noticed smoke coming from 335 E. 206th St. and called 911. Firefighters from across the city rushed to the house to put out the fire. “While inside crews split up – one searching for people and the other for the fire,” explained WFD spokesman John Barrett. “Firefighters had the fire under control shortly later and search crews found no one inside.” After it was safe to go in, investigators began searching for the cause of the fire but have yet to determine how it began.

IMMI hires new CFO – Westfield-based IMMI, a global leader in the engineering, manufacturing, and testing of advanced safety systems, has announced the hiring of former Knauf Insulation Finance Director Warren Wise as the company’s new chief financial officer. “We are excited to add Warren to our team at IMMI, and look forward to the strategic financial leadership he’ll bring as we continue to grow profitably across the many industries that we serve,” said IMMI CEO Larry Gray. Those industries include designing and manufacturing products like school bus seats and seat belts, restraint systems and air bags for commercial, fire and military vehicles, and safety components for all major child-seat manufacturers worldwide. Wise spent the past 20 years at Knauf Insulation, which is based in Shelbyville. He graduated from Indiana University with a major in finance and received his MBA from Indiana Wesleyan.

DIVORCE – WHAT TO EXPECT: Modification of Custody In family law cases, there are times when one parent seeks a modification of the custodial arrangement. As with any family law issue, if the parties agree to the modification, they can enter into a formal agreement which outlines the terms of the modification and file the agreement with the Court for approval. Absent an agreement however, custody modifications can be difficult cases for the party requesting the modification. This is due to the fact that under Indiana law, the party requesting the modification has the burden to prove that (1) a substantial change in circumstances has occurred so as to warrant the modification of custody and that (2) such modification is in the best interest of the child(ren). Keep in mind there are two forms of custody: physical and legal. A party may request to modify either physical custody, legal custody, or both. When a party requests a modification of custody, the Court must find that both elements of the applicable statute have been satisfied. This can be a difficult burden for the requesting party to meet. For instance, a change in the non-custodial parent’s circumstances is not a substantial and continuing change so as to warrant a modification of custody. So a change in the non-custodial parent’s circumstances – better job, better home, more stable overall – will not in and of itself be sufficient to modify custody. The most common arguments that successful modifications rely upon involve the safety and/or well-being of the child in question. The most extreme cases involve abuse of a child. Also, a showing that the health of the child has been compromised

Current in Westfield

can support a request to modify custody. Less dramatic factors, such as a significant decline in academic performance, can also be persuasive With respect to legal custody, a modification from joint legal custody to sole legal custody may be appropriate if it is shown there has been a breakdown in communications between the parents such that they can no longer communicate with one another to make the child-related decisions. The breakdown in communication can involve verbally or electronically abusive comments, or could simply be a failure of one parent to participate in decision-making that negatively impacts the child (e.g. missed sign-up deadlines). Custody modifications are not readily granted as courts prefer to see custodial arrangements with children to remain consistent. If you are considering requesting a custody modification, you would be well advised to seek the assistance of counsel specializing in family law.

Grammar guy

StorAmerica

Using affect/effect effectively Commentary by Jordan Fischer Question: “I’ve always had trouble using affect and effect correctly. What is the proper way to use them? Answer: The simple answer here is that, 90 percent of the time, affect with an “a” is a verb and effect with an “e” is a noun. For example, to use affect, you might say: “This year’s drought has negatively affected my tomato plants.” Conversely, to use effect, you would say: “The drought has had a negative effect on my tomato plants.” To look at it another way, to affect something is to take action to influence it. An effect is the resulting influence. When European explorers came to the Americas, for example, they affected the native populations by bringing in new diseases. The effect was sickness and death due to new strains of illness like small pox. To help you remember the common noun usage of effect, try to figure out if it would require an article (“a,” “an” or “the”) before the word. If you would say “an effect,” you’ll want to go with effect with an “e.” Things get a little hairier, however, with the other, less-common uses of affect and effect. When affect is used as a noun, it refers to feelings and emotions, or the appearance thereof. You will see this word used sometimes in reference to court cases as psychiatrists analyze a defendant’s

demeanor. After the recent shootings in Colorado, many news outlets reported on the flat, emotionless affect of James Holmes, the man charged with the crime. Wonderfully enough, you can also use affect in this way as a verb as well, for example: “Heath Ledger affected a psychotic demeanor for his role as the Joker.” Finally, we come to effect used as a verb, which is tricky enough that many dictionaries even define it this way: “to produce as an effect.” Helpful, right? I find the easiest way to remember this usage is to think of it as bringing about a specific change or accomplishment. A new helmet law might, for example, effect a 10 percent reduction in head trauma in motorcyclists. A contestant on “The Biggest Loser” might effect a 100-pound weight loss – which, of course, would affect his or her figure. In this usage, you will find often that article we looked for earlier after the verb instead of before it (“effect a change” versus “an effect”). Affect and effect still be tricky, even if you have the rules down. But, if you look for articles, and try to keep in mind where the action is going, your grammar should remain effective … most of the time.

Dusty Marshall Meet Dusty Marshall Westfield completes life-long goal Residence: Birthplace: Whidbey Island, of opening dance studio Wash. Hobbies: Dance, biking, By Robert Herrington • robert@youarecurrent.com Dusty Marshall began dancing at the age of five. When she was a little girl, Marshall had one dream – to operate her own dance studio. With the help of her husband, David, Marshall has now opened Adagio Dance Studio in Westfield and is trying to instill her love of dancing into her students. “It became an opportunity once we got were married three years ago,” she explained. “I needed to go for it now because I may never have an opportunity again.” David said the opening of the studio has been an exciting collaboration for the couple, who completely renovated the space and installed spring floors. “It’s fulfilling on a personal level,” he said. “She’s the happiest when she is in the studio. I can see a light go off.” Marshall, who has been away from dance for a few years, said her return is “refreshing.” “Dance has always been a part of me,” she explained. “When I wasn’t dancing I was going to ballets or somehow being involved in it. I feel like myself again, like I can be creative again … It doesn’t feel real.” Marshall has 15 years of experience in the world of dance, where she was trained in ballet and tap under the tutelage of Kathy Simpson. “She was the best dance teacher and mentor,” she said. “Miss Kathy loved dance and set a stellar example for us to follow. She was always looking for learning opportunities for her dancers. I’ll never forget when she drove me to downtown Indianapolis to audition for Sleeping www.currentinwestfield.com

anything outdoors, camping and designing What do you enjoy most about teaching dance: Seeing the students become more self-confident and love dance as much as I do. Favorite style of dance: Ballet Favorite ballet performance: Swan Lake. Favorite food: Any berries, I love fruit. What would you be doing if you were teaching dance: I’d be a mom and if I couldn’t be that, I’d be in project management construction. Personal quote: “Those that don’t make mistakes work for those of us that do” ~ Mark Twain. Beauty and also arranged for me to audition for classes at the Indianapolis Ballet Theatre.” Marshall said the IBT was a pivotal time

for her as a dancer where she learned from renowned instructor Yu Qin Hao of the Royal Ballet of China. “I’ll never forget her warmth and genuine concern for her dancers’ well-being. I strive to do the same for my students as well,” she said. Adagio stands for “a slow, unfolding movements performed with fluidity and grace.” Marshall said her academy is performance-based and focuses on creative expression through dance. Just as Simpson did for her, Marshall hope to provide her students with the greatest gift – dance. “I want them to have something nobody can take away from them – self-discipline and self-confidence,” she said. “I’m still friends with the girls I danced with years ago. I’m hoping to bring that to Westfield.” Adagio Dance Academy is at 108A E. Main St. The studio is on the second floor and uses Good Life Café as its waiting room. “As soon as we opened the doors for the studio, I knew it was the space,” she said. “We weren’t looking into opening anywhere else. We thought Westfield had a real need for our niche – older girls that want to focus on technique.” Classes are available for 3-year-olds to adults and include pre-ballet, ballet, tap, jazz, lyrical,

pointe and pre-pointe ballet. The dance academy also provides a conditioning class – a mix of ballet, pilates and yoga – that gives adults another opportunity to exercise. “It doesn’t hurt your joints or body nearly as much but you’re still getting that workout,” said Marshall. “Dancing is for everybody. It doesn’t matter how old or how much training you have.” Clara Duray of Westfield has three daughters taking classes at Adagio. Duray explained that her children used to take classes in Fishers but the rush hour traffic made traveling difficult. The family then moved to a dance studio in Noblesville but had troubles with class times. “I’m really excited to find them so close to home,” she said. “They’ve been very accommodating.” Duray took dance classes as a child and hopes her children learn discipline. Although the family only recently completed their first dance lessons, Duray likes the style of Adagio. “There’s beauty to it – expression through body,” she said. “My children love all the personal attention they get with smaller classes.” Adagio Dance Academy still is allowing signups. For more information, call 867-3043 or visit www.dancewithadagio.com.

Opinion 151st St. interchange should prove a plus

Kissing pulpit It is our position that the term “bully pulpit” should not be taken literally by protestors. The recent controversy over Chickfil-A President Dan Cathy’s comments on the Biblical definition of a family unit has ignited a firestorm from gay marriage equality activists that included a staged “kiss-in” at local restaurants. Staging a kiss-in at a Chick-fil-A restaurant is the equivalent of making out on stage at the local elementary school or retirement center. Is that really the most appropriate platform for advancing a political stance on gay marriage? There’s a difference between staging an effective protest and simply throwing a tantrum or staging a stunt for shock value. Why did the protest have to turn sexual? If the philosophy is that marriage equality is not about sex, why use kissing as a protest? Regarding Cathy’s statements and opinions – what happened to free speech? Apparently, it’s only acceptable if you agree with the speech. It’s very difficult to gain mutual understanding and respect if there is no middle ground. And, there may never be a middle ground for some, rightly, or not rightly, so. It depends on your vantage point. There’s got to be a better way.

We are the champions Commentary by Terry Anker

So the nationally distributed periodical, Money Magazine, chose to name one of our one central Indiana communities as the “Best Place to Live in America.” At first blush, it seems like an amazing honor – it seems pretty impressive with the second look, too. Sure, we can discount the nature of how these places are selected for the award. And, we can claim that any town could win it; but, given the many thousands of municipalities that might qualify for the distinction, only one took home the goods. We live in a place that certainly spends money. It makes aggressive use of publicprivate partnerships. It waters plants and builds roundabouts. Yet, the taxes stay low and schools remain top-shelf. We have good leadership. The superintendent works tirelessly – along with the rest of the school team – to deliver the very best that resources will allow. The mayor leads and the council oversees. Each in a perfect, if at times somewhat heated, balance. This is an organism of many

parts and many subroutines. So, we, as thinking taxpayers, can ask if this national attention is worth the effort. Would it be better to eschew the spotlight and pause at four-way stops like the rest of the world? Does it paint a fair portrait of our hometown? Or, does it only further serve to alienate us from folks who might chose to use the occasion to breed even more vitriolic stereotypes? Whichever, our streets, neighborhoods and communities are feeling the warmth of the media spotlight. Does the glow enhance our strengths or point to our weaknesses? Only time will tell. Regardless, it is up to us to live the part. Work harder to keep the streets safe and clean. And, expect to share the good thing we’ve got. Are we building a reputation or resting upon one?

If the speed with which the U.S. 31 project has transformed half of the project at Clay Terrace Boulevard to the south of our city thus far, next year’s phase – weather permitting – at 151st Street should equally be a treat. Yes, there will be traffic jams for short periods each day, but the result should prove pleasing to everyone in the city that uses either U.S. 31 or 151st Street on even a semi-regular basis. The opportunity to approach, for instance, Walmart and its neighboring businesses from the west or north without stopping will be a huge convenience for anyone. Continual flow of traffic, which we’re now seeing in the Clay Terrace area really is remarkable. And it doesn’t take long to get over not sitting in traffic at a light. We’ll all experience that with the makeover of the U.S. 31/151st Street interchange. At first, we were skeptical of how the whole project would unfold. Now, having seen it and experienced it often, we’re encouraged for the Westfield portion of the corridor. There is no reason to believe this segment of the project running from I-465 to South Bend won’t parrot the efficiency and quickness of the work being done down in Carmel. It really has amazed us, and we were skeptical at the start of the effort. A case of good things coming to those who wait? We believe so, but we’ll let you be the judge next year. ••• CORRECTION: In welcoming Tania Castroverde Moskalenko, the new CEO of The Center for the Performing Arts, we erred with respect to the location of her former employer.

A grim future with teens Commentary by Danielle Wilson

I have glimpsed my future, and I am afraid. I’m speaking, of course, about parenting teenagers, particularly girls. Recently, I’ve been treated to a preview of what my life will be like in a few short years. Someone help me. My husband and I insist that our children play a sport, and our 11-year-old daughter hasn’t really found anything to her liking. Soccer lasted a few years until the practices became too intense, while volleyball and gymnastics were dropped after only six weeks. She shot down tennis, her twin brother denied her swimming (that’s his sport), and we decided not to press for ice hockey. That left cross country. Three weeks before the season began, I took her out jogging, knowing she needed some prep work. She made it a half mile before the tears appeared, along with emphatic requests to stop. I reacted with tough love, then empathetic encouragement and finally outright bribery. Nothing worked. When this pattern continued for our next few runs, I suggested she reconsider ice hockey. “No! I want to run cross country!” OK. Her attitude oscillated more extremely once official team practices started. She’d be sick to her stomach with anxiety beforehand, begging me to let her skip “just this once,” but when I’d pick her up afterwards, she’d say she was

www.currentinwestfield.com

starting to like it. By nightfall, we’d be back to hating cross country. Ugh – this was too confusing. Sick to my stomach from her indecision, I caved. “But you’ll have to tell your coaches in person and find another sport to play.” (I am not above using guilt and manipulation to my advantage.) Two days before D-Day, I was met with nothing short of a tantrum. She was not going to practice, period, and I couldn’t make her! Wanna bet? I ignored her hysterical weeping and demanded she get her fanny into the van. She cried the entire way there, periodically stomping her feet and shrieking, “I’m not going! I hate it! I hate it!” Though she stopped short of actually screaming “I hate you!” the sentiment was definitely implied. To her credit, she managed to pull herself together and complete practice. Then she announced she was officially joining. What? Who? What happened to, “I hate you for making me do this!”? But such is the emotional roller coaster of a young girl. And she’s only 11. I’m so in trouble. Peace out.

Strange occurrences

Commentary by Dick Wolfsie I hoped this week that when our new carpet arrived, I’d get an idea for a column, but the process was uneventful. I kept trying to make the installers laugh, but they pretty much just stared at the floor. The Olympics are over, so it’s too late for my jokes about the Uzbekistan/ Bulgaria field hockey match. The presidential election is always good for humor. Four years ago, I watched a lot of TV coverage of the contest, but at the time nothing funny occurred to me, so I’m not optimistic this year. Occurring is exactly what the great humorists like Jon Stewart and Jerry Seinfeld have to do. They walk around the house, office, or supermarket, or read a newspaper until something occurs to them. Great humorists have always done this. Maybe it never occurred to you. I decided to start occurring in the basement. I really shouldn’t call it a basement. When we moved in the house, it was a basement, but we spent $15,000 to “finish” it. Actually, we finished 75 percent of the basement and left 25 percent for storage. It occurred to me that the 75 percent we finished was being used the exact same way as the 25 percent for storage. And then it occurred to me that I blew 15 grand. I decided to go upstairs. Two occurrences were more than I could afford. Attics are always full of interesting artifacts that bring back memories. I could rummage

around the attic, try on some old clothes, look at scrapbooks, and read through old letters. Something funny would certainly occur to me there. This seemed like the perfect plan. Then it occurred to me: We don’t have an attic. I was getting desperate. My plan had failed. I was doing a heck of a lot of occurring, yet it was all essentially humorless. But there was one place I had not yet occurred – a place just ripe for a funny occurrence: the kitchen. I raced into the room and swung open the refrigerator door. Suddenly, dozens of good things started occurring to me: how many food items had passed their expiration date; how many tasteless nonfat foods were in our fridge. I was in heaven. I told my wife all my funny occurrences. “That’s great, Dick. But Dave Barry, Art Buchwald, Andy Rooney, and Jerry Seinfeld have already written about that very topic. In fact, if I remember correctly, so have you.” “Yes, I was having trouble occurring, so I simply reoccurred."

Bringing Broadway to your backyard Actors Theatre of Indiana reflects on what it means to be professional By Christian Sorrell • christian@youarecurrent.com In 2005, Cynthia Collins, Don Farrell and Judy Fitzgerald, three professional performers, traveled from New York City and founded the Actors Theatre of Indiana. Despite the existence of several other theater companies in the area, ATI has one primary difference: it is the only professional Equity theater company in Hamilton County. This key distinction is not only visible behind the scenes, but also on the stage. “The main difference between amateur and professional theater is that it is a hobby for one group, and the other is made up of paid, union

Join the cast of “Gypsy” in the Studio Theatre at the Center for the Performing Arts after the September 7 performance for desserts and drinks to celebrate the inaugural performance of ATI’s 8th Season!

actors that do it for a living,” said Collins. Membership in the Actor’s Equity Assocation, a labor union founded in 1913, is viewed mostly as a sign of the actor’s success. Equity actors are viewed by others in the field as truly being a professional. “The union was initially meant to protect the actors, but now more than anything, it legitimizes them,” said Farrell. “When you get that union card, it shows you are invested. It’s very much the equivalent to a master’s or doctorate in other professions. It really is,” said Fitzgerald. Between seasons, all three of ATI’s cofounders routinely audition for and perform in professional shows throughout the country, allowing them to work with other professional actors and crews which they can bring to Indiana when the time is right. “We are actively engaged in what is going on across the country, in terms of theater,” said Farrell who had returned from a professional performance in Pennsylvania and another in Bloomington only days prior. “We are constantly able to create something fresh and new by bringing out so much talent from so many different places.”

“It’s everything. It’s the entire product from stem to stern that is invigorated by all of this great talent,” said Fitzgerald. Operating as a not-for-profit organization, ATI may not always have the set and studio space of other theater companies in the area, but they promise they have the talent. “I would rather have a great actor on a bare stage than a bad actor surrounded by bells and whistles,” said Collins. “After seeing our shows, a lot of our subscribers go to other shows and then they really begin to understand the difference between professional and community,” said Collins. During the last year, ATI’s focus on professional talent has proven quite successful. The number of season subscription holders has increased by more than 50 percent, and may double before the end of the company’s upcoming eighth season. “We’re excited to have the community supporting us. The future is very bright for ATI,” said Farrell. “We are expanding and continuing to grow daily.” For an extended version of this article, visit currentnightandday.com

Review

The Orphan Master By Jean Zimmerman By Nina Kennedy Carmel Clay Public Library In 1663, the small Dutch colony of New Amsterdam, situated on the edge of the wilderness on present day Manhattan, is populated by Dutch, English and Native American inhabitants. It is a hardscrabble life for colonists in the New World, and many children become orphans at an early age. They are taken under the care of the orphan master, Aet Visser, who finds families for the orphans and looks out for their welfare. However, several orphans have disappeared and only Blandine van Couvering is concerned. An orphan herself, she is now a young woman with her own trading business. She and Edward Drummond, a British spy, join forces and investigate the mysterious circumstances. Meanwhile, the townsfolk start to whisper about the witika, the huge, ghastly creature from Native American lore that haunts the woods and eats human flesh. “The Orphan Master” is debut author Jean Zimmerman’s well-researched and richly detailed description of 17th century life in the Dutch colony of New Amsterdam. The historical setting is vividly portrayed while the mys-

tery of the missing orphans contributes to the suspense. Readers should be forewarned that the brutal nature of the crime may be shocking; however, this is a compelling story of human behavior and the harsh frontier. “Library Journal” describes it as “…a successful mix of historical fiction, spy thriller and horror.” Readers who liked Eliot Pattison’s Bone Rattler may enjoy this title.

West Nile virus claims first life editorial@youarecurrent.com State health officials reported the first West Nile virus related death this year on Aug. 15. The victim was a resident of Vanderburgh County. A total of seven cases in Fulton, Hamilton, Jackson, Monroe, Marion and Vanderburgh counties have been reported this year so far. According to a press release from the Indiana State Department of Health, the majority of people who get infected are those spending time around or outside of the home, in their gardens, mowing the lawn, or sitting on the porch. “Because this virus is carried and transmitted by mosquitoes, we are all susceptible to it,” said State Health Commissioner Gregory Larkin, M.D., in the press release. “The tragic death we’ve recently experienced serves as a reminder Not so fast – Sometimes those "healthy" substitutes we choose are actually detrimental to our wellness, one of them being artificial butter spreads. Most butter substitutes are full of cheap vegetable oils, preservatives, and lots of salt. Even worse, many still have trans fats even when they claim not to. Stick to the real stuff for a dose of omega 3's. - www.shape.com/ healthy-eating

of just how important it is to take steps to protect ourselves from mosquitoes, both indoors and outdoors.” The Department of Health suggests to avoid places were mosquitoes are biting, and to utilize repellents containing DEET, picaradin or oil of lemon eucalyptus. Also, they suggest installing or repairing window screens and wearing pants and long sleeves whenever possible. To reduce potential mosquito breeding grounds, they say to get rid of containers that can hold water, repair failed septic systems, drill holes in the bottoms of recycling containers that remain outside, keep the grass short and the shrubs trimmed, clean out clogged gutters, replace the water in pet bowls frequently, flush ornamental fountains and birdbaths frequently, and aerate ornamental pools or stock them with predatory fish.

New healthcare law, new scams targeting seniors By Jordan Fischer • jordan@youarecurrent.com

Uncertainties about the long term effects of the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision to uphold the Affordable Care Act have many doctors and healthcare administrators in limbo, but there is one group who swiftly jumped into action after the July decision – scam artists. Scams targeting seniors are nothing new – a 2011 MetLife study on elder financial abuse estimated an annual financial loss by senior victims at more than $2.9 billion – but the flurry of attention and confusion surrounding the AHA has led to particularly pernicious ones in recent months. Scams targeting seniors tend to fall into one of three major areas: identity theft, Medicaid/ Medicare and medication fraud, and financial exploitation. According to Sid Kirchheimer, who writes a regular Scam Alert column for the AARP, the current healthcare climate is allowing scammers a chance to do all three. “Whenever a federal program is in the news — and sometimes when it’s not — scammers surface with another government impostor ruse, trying to get your money and personal information for identity theft,” Kirchheimer wrote in a July 20 piece for AARP. To do so, Kirchheimer continued, thieves “masquerade as Medicare or Social Security employees who need to update or verify” your data. Scammers have also been known to pretend to be FDA, DEA and IRS agents. Seniors also make great targets for scams because they are unlikely to report the crime,

While scams targeting seniors can take many forms, the AARP has devised a list of 10 warning signs to look for to help aging adults protect themselves from would-be crooks: • Hyping the offer • Asking lots of personal questions • Telling you that you’ve won a prize – but must pay to receive it • Warning you that if you don’t pay right away, you’ll lose the deal • Failing to tell you where your donations will go • Telling you the offer is secret • Providing no written information • Using fear • Getting a foot in the door • Using bait and switch (Source: Doug Shadel via AARP.com) according to Ed Hutchinson, director of the National Association of Triads, part of the National Sheriffs’ Association. Hutchinson notes an AARP study which reported that only 25 percent of scam victims over the age of 55 have ever reported the crime to police. “These seniors may be afraid to be seen as vulnerable by the law and those in a position to tell them that, perhaps, they are not fit to continue living by themselves. It’s a perceived threat of a loss of independence that drives many to keep quiet,” said Hutchison. Hutchinson acted as an expert source in the development of a “Senior Fraud Protection Kit,” alongside Home Instead Senior Care, which has

SLEEP IN – It’s a known fact that people tend to sleep less as they age – as little as five to six hours for those over 60, compared to 11 or 12 as a toddler. However, studies show 10 hours of sleep per night are still recommended, even if you have to piece it together. - www.home-remedies.com

The Stratford Hires Medical Director to Focus on Transitional Care Partnerships.

CARMEL, Ind.– The Stratford, a retirement community located in Carmel, Ind., announced today that Dr. Kevin Helms with Advanced Healthcare Associates will serve as the community’s new medical director. According to The Stratford’s Executive Director Sam Carrillo, the relationship is designed to improve care coordination between the continuing care retirement community and local hospitals such as St. Vincent Carmel and IU Health- North, the Indiana University hospital located less than 10 miles from The Stratford. “Research by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services consistently suggest that we can dramatically improve the quality of our assisted living, skilled nursing and memory care services by working more closely with local acute-care providers,” said Carrillo. “Dr. Helms’ experience as a former internist at IU North who helped develop their transitional care program will be an enormous asset to our community.” Transitional (or coordinated) care is a new model gaining momentum among acute-care providers throughout the country as they struggle to find a way to prevent unnecessary re-hospitalizations by providing better care outside of expensive hospital settings. Transitional care models take a holistic approach to evaluating the quality of care a person receives by looking at the entire care episode – from their initial admittance to a hospital to their health outcomes up to 90 days following their discharge from the hospital.

Since older adults are particularly vulnerable following an admission or discharge from a hospital, long-term care providers, especially those who offer skilled nursing services, are working more closely with hospitals to improve the process. Dr. Helms is Board Certified in Internal Medicine and graduated from Indiana University’s School of Medicine in 1997. Before joining Advanced Healthcare Associates, he served as an Internal Medicine, Pulmonary and Critical Care Hospitalist at IU Health – North for 12 years. Dr. Helms is a member of the American Medical Directors Association and the Indiana State Medical Society. For more information about the transitional care options available at The Stratford contact the community by phone at 317-733-6601 or by visiting www.Stratford-Living.com. About The Stratford The Stratford is an active retirement community located in the Village at WestClay which helps members live longer, healthier and happier lives by offering an array of amenities including maintenancefree living, daily fine dining, weekly housekeeping, a nationally recognized wellness program and continuing-care health services. Members can choose from a variety of floor plans including singlefamily cottage homes and condominium-style villas. Assisted living, Alzheimer’s care and skilled-nursing rooms are also available for those who need to make a transition from independent living. More information about The Stratford can be found by visiting www.Stratford-Living.com.

Insurance

Do I need insurance on my grown children? Commentary by Jamie Ianigro Question from Clair L. from Carmel: One of my kids graduated college in the spring and has yet to find a job. Are there insurance issues that I need to be concerned about? This situation seems to be pretty common these days. Response from Jamie Ianigro: The down economy has hit everyone, but it’s really punished the folks graduating from college the last couple of years. You trigger some insurance issues anytime someone moves into your home. You could also be heading towards some health insurance issues depending on the age of your children. Let’s start with the property and liability issues though. Personal liability is the big issue that arises with grown kids. Everyone has a legal responsibility to handle the damage they cause to other people and their property. It can be anything from injuring someone accidently in a recreational sport to misjudging the wind and felling a tree into a neighbor’s house. The liability falls right back on your homeowner’s policy if you or your child does something like that. The problem that can arise is where your grown kid actually lives. Maybe all of their stuff is under your roof, but are they sleeping there every night? Are they paying you rent?

You might consider getting a renter’s policy in their name. It has the benefit of property coverage, but the main benefit is that there will be no fight over liability coverage if a conflict arises. This is an important issue, and verifying with your independent agent that you and your grown kids are protected is a quick and easy thing to do. Health insurance is the other major issue that affects grown children that not eligible for their own coverage. The Affordable Care Act extended the age limit that children can stay on a parent’s health plan to age 26.  Many options at many price points are still available once someone passes the age restriction. Independent insurance agents are usually able to help you secure an individual health policy and help weigh your options. Going without coverage is an absolute last resort option. Having an emergency surgery or medical situation can be a crippling financial blow without some kind of health insurance. It is extremely risky and will make it very difficult to get quality coverage in the future. Jamie Ianigro is with Shepherd Insurance & Finanacial Services. Have an insurance question you need answered? Send it to asktheadvisor@shepherdins.com.

Credit strategies – If you’re sitting on a credit score of 700 or higher, don’t settle for less than a 1.5% rewards rate on a credit card. You’re in the higher percentile of card users, and that gives you leverage to get the most out of your credit card provider. - cnnmoney.com

Color Your World! Did you know that trained stylists, who have mastered the art of dimensional color, are able to strategically place highlights and lowlights that work with the shape of your haircut? Consulting with a professional, rather than trying to alter your hair color alone, will ensure that you achieve the look you are going for! Book an appointment at Salon 01 now and update your look for fall!

Jewels As we have seen, large jewelry has been a staple item in recent fashion mags and on the runways. Eye catching pieces, such as a one-of-a-kind cocktail ring, large cuffs in a bright color, or an ethnic necklace are essentials for this season. Brighten up your wardrobe and update your look with some show-stopping jewelry. Beware, however, large jewelry pieces are meant to be worn alone. Pick one piece and stick with it. Two or more pieces will be overkill.

Eyeshadow Shades While trying the newest eye makeup trends can be fun, not all eyeshadow hues are suitable for every eye color. Brown eyed girls should stick with shades of green, bronze, copper, amber or pale blue. These colors will create subtle drama that will deepen the color of your eyes.

Mad Hatter Hats make a great fashion statement, but when you wear a hat you want a hair style that still looks good when the hat comes off. There is no reason to shy away from this chic accessory because of the fear of “hat head.” The solution? A classic half-up/half-down look that might remind you of your schoolgirl days is a perfect resting place for your hat because it will not leave room for “hat head.” If you are still unsure, pack a comb and travel hairspray in your bag as extra insurance on your post-hat ‘do’.

If you have blue and gray eyes, shadows with a hint of brown (think brick, peach or purple) or yellow-gold bring out the bright blues or smoky gray to create an alluring look. Hazel and green eyed gals should consider mauve, pale purple, pewter, lilac or light brown which will bring out the gold flecks and make green eyes flicker. Stop in and see one of our trained estheticians for a makeup consultation!

Making dream kitchens a reality Commenaty by Dave Decker

Whether you are building from a blank page or renovating an existing space, creating your dream kitchen is an exhilarating journey, and at times a huge undertaking. It is one that will have a profound ripple effect throughout the entire home. As the kitchen acts as the grounding space for our lives, a calm, organized space benefits every other room in the home. However, renovating a kitchen is no small task and requires a near-infinite amount of planning and patience coupled with an ability to be flexible and go with the ebbs and flows the project presents. The more time you spend in the thinking, preparing and design collection phase, the greater the likelihood that you’re going to be extremely pleased with the end result. Just as any successful company has a vision and clear mission statement that acts as a compass to point it toward an end goal, so should homeowners. This will allow you to stay focused on the larger picture and not get sidetracked in the process. The first step is deciding the feel and look you want for your dream kitchen. If you are not sure what this entails, spend a good amount of time researching the Web and showrooms in your area to see what draws your attention. Whether it is sleek and modern, or traditional and timeless, a design theme you are drawn to will begin to take shape and emerge. Also, do not forget to consult a de-

signer that is specifically trained in this area. They not only offer expertise in the visionary process, but a professional kitchen designer can introduce you to new product lines that are not only gorgeous in your space, but also fit your budget. It is also important to know your needs. Is it more storage you desire? Better flow with new appliances and an updated look and feel? All of the above? Having a clear motive for undertaking such a massive project can make sure your budget is allocated correctly and realistically and will help you get over any hurdles. Rather than thinking of your budget as a limiting factor in this process, choose to look at it as a guiding tool that will help you pinpoint your priorities. That way, when the final nail is in place, you can feel confident you chose the most important features to allow a dream on paper to become a reality.

Fire features bring you closer Lanscaping by Randy Sorrell

What could possibly be more romantic, provocative and inviting than a warming fire feature on a cool evening? It’s a fantastic way to create mood, kids dig it and couples seem to migrate closer to each other when the flames begin to dance. There is likely a fire feature for you, regardless of your preferred style Natural Boulder fire pits speak volumes to an outdoor living space. They create an instantly relaxed atmosphere and work well in both casual and semi-formal areas. We love to sneak them into the side of a stone patio straddling the lawn so chairs can be snuggled up to them as boulders meet nature. They’re very cost-effective and leave space in the budget for other amenities that may get appreciated more, like night lighting or an upgrade to a travertine patio instead of traditional pavers. Formal Of course, everyone would love a dreamy outdoor fireplace constructed of brick and mortar to echo the house with a limestone mantel

and bluestone inserts for detail. But, cost can get in the way. These serious structures require as much effort below ground as they do above with concrete footers and a truck-load of cinder block. Well-planned construction details are critical so that the smoke actually finds its way in the chimney instead of the patio living space. Smoke inhalation is no fun. Gas is an appreciated convenience that triples the usage and enjoyment. Its flames can be employed as a simple starter or for the warming impact as well, avoiding the aftertaste of burnt wood as it twists its way through rustic cobble or eclectic tumble glass. Your home will decide the preferred materials, as well as the selection of a natural or formal setting. Expect to savor the warmth, the urge to snuggle and the laughter that marries itself to fire features.
