History

(Strength + Compassion)² In 1860, a two-story brick building was erected with great sacrifice to house the Union High Academy at 434 S. Union St. The first class sessions were held on Jan. 7, 1861. This was one of the first institutions of secondary education in this area. Here young people were educated in a Christian atmosphere with many of the graduates becoming ministers, teachers, doctors, lawyers and leaders. With the establishment of public schools, the enrollment of Union High Academy began to diminish. It appeared that the doors would have to close after 50 years of operation; however, with the help of William M. Smith Union Bible Seminary was founded in May, 1911. In 1980, Union Bible Seminary was moved to a completely interdenominational basis and officially changed to Union Bible College in June 1989.

Education

Meet Your Teacher – Katie Gilge Teaches: First grade at Shamrock Springs Elementary Number of years teaching: Three Education: Firestone High School (Akron, Ohio) and B.S. in elementary education from John Carroll University (University Heights, Ohio). Why did you become a teacher? Education has always been very important to me, but during college I realized that it is my passion. I believe that all children have a right to the best education possible. Each and every child should be provided with the support needed in order to reach his/her full potential, and I want to be there to provide that support. I also believe that children should love learning. I am determined to make learning fun for every student in order to foster that love of learning within them and create lifelong learners. What goals do you have for your students? I want my students to become lifelong learners and develop pride in their work. It is my responsibility to provide differentiated instruction and variety in my classroom. Through variety, my students will be able to learn in their own ways and will be given the opportunity for ownership of their learning. They will learn how to use self-

evaluation as a means to recognize their strengths along with areas they need to work on. I want my students to be motivated and interested, which means I need to provide authentic experiences and situations that connect to their lives. Overall, I want each student to reach his/her full potential in a classroom that promotes excellence, equality, team work, a love of learning and acceptance. What do you encourage parents to do at home to help their children strengthen particular skills? I feel that a great relationship between the teacher, staff, students and families is essential for each child to do his/her best. Students need to know there is communication between school and home and know that the two are connected. I believe parents need to be willing to work with their child on weaknesses at home with support from the school. Learning, as important as it is, needs to happen both at school and at home. Favorite movie: Elf Favorite musician, composer, or band: Eric Whitacre What’s something your students might not know about you? During high school, I received awards such as best soloist, best female soloist and best performer.

Grammar Guy

Apostrophes and plurals Commentary by Jordan Fischer Question: I’m a big fan of music from the 1960s. I’ve seen it written a lot of ways: The ‘60s; the 60s; the 60’s.; even ‘60s’ music. Which one of those is correct? Answer: You’ve treaded here into one of the stickier grammar rules: apostrophes used to indicate plural nouns – though, in your example, the rule would be misapplied. We’ll get to that in a bit, though. To answer your first question, if you’re talking about a specific decade like the 1960s, and you want to be a little less formal, writing it as “the ’60s” is perfectly fine. There the apostrophe indicates an omission – specifically the omission of “1900.” It’s the same principle applied in some of the more cringe-worthy slang you might pick up from a Mark Twain protagonist: ’cause (because), s’pose (suppose), etc. Now let’s go through the rest of your examples, shall we? Let’s say you want to turn a number into a plural object. To stick with the 60 theme, let’s say you have a very large group of people which you’ve counted off into 60 smaller groups. If you’d like each member of the number 60 sub-group to, let’s say, line up for lunch, you might say this: “Would the 60s please come to the cafeteria?” The principle applies for all numbers (7s, 18s, 4,000s, etc.), and also for capital letters (As, Bs, Cs, etc.).

Of course, since nothing can be too easy in English, if you’d like to make lower case letters plural, you’ll need to bring that apostrophe back. Remember when your mother advised you to mind your p’s and q’s? She used apostrophes to do so. The third 60 you’ve presented here, “60’s” is simply incorrect … unless of course you’re talking about a possession belonging to, I don’t know, a robot named “60.” But since robots still don’t have personal property rights, it’s not something we need to worry about. The last 60 in your question, “’60s’ music,” is, I think, a valiant attempt to apply correct grammar. Ultimately, of course, it is one that fails. The initial apostrophe is used correctly to indicate that something has been omitted (“1900”). The second apostrophe wants to, I believe, indicate that the music in question comes from the 1960s. I can understand this. Why it is incorrect is this: The music does not belong to the 1960s; it is simply of the 1960s. In this use, ’60s becomes an adjective in the same way you might say “Jamaican music” or “Celtic music;” thus no apostrophe is needed.

Cover Story

Three development proposals could transform the city’s economic growth By Robert Herrington • robert@youarecurrent.com Three major developments will be introduced to Westfield’s Advisory Plan Commission monthly meeting on Sept. 4. The multi-million dollar proposals involve commercial investments, retail stores, office space and multifamily housing.

Towne West The development of Towne West will feature a mixture of commerce and senior living near 146th Street and Towne Road. The 120 acres will include a 50-50 split of retail/general business and multi-family living. “We’re excited about this opportunity,” said Matt Price, attorney for Paul and Steve Polizzi and John Levinsohn. Price said the retail area uses included a hospital complex or hospital campus, which may include medical offices, in-patient and out-patient facilities, skilled nursing care Price and medical-related research facilities. While exact details were not known or announced, Price said the hospital could be a smaller facility similar to the one at 116th Street and U.S. 31 (IU Health North). Price said the multi-family portion would consist of apartments, attached senior living garden homes, assisted living facilities or skilled nursing care. One problem with the development is access to the complex. Price said the owners are working with the Hamilton County Highway Dept. on creating an access point on 146th Street. “It would be a right in, right out for the hospital,” he explained. “Decisions are being made with 146th Street on what uses are permitted or permissible on this parcel.” If the project is not accepted by the county, Price said the developers would be willing to pay for the construction if an agreement for a TIF district or financial assistance can be made with the city. Price said the development would also look to create a regional intersection sewer service which would include adjoining property owners. “It would help drive the economy for that intersection,” he said. Price said the decision and construction of the roundabout could happen in six to eight months or two years. He said completion of the development is three to five years away. “There’s work in front of us that will take that period of time,” Price said. www.currentinwestfield.com

grand park village The largest development is the proposed 220-acre Grand Park Village, which is estimated by Henke Development Group LLC to bring $217 million in assessed value to the Grand Junction TIF district. “There’s a lot of interest in economic development,” Steve Henke said, adding that four groups of hotels have expressed interest in the proposal. Grand Park Village will be south of the new Grand Park development, the largest complex of its kind in Indiana. Grand Park is under construction west of U.S. 31. Henke At the heart of the plan is a “lake village,” which, with a boardwalk and a 20-acre lake, would be built at an estimated cost of $30-$35 million. The development’s centerpiece would provide water activities such as kayaking, paddleboats and beach and swimming areas. Surrounding the lake on the boardwalk will be restaurants and shops, offering relaxing views and outdoor entertainment for diners. “We want to create an entire experience for people coming to town year after year after year,” explained Henke. “The boardwalk and shops on the water are an experience you don’t find around here.” A trail would be built around the lake for pedestrians and cyclists to use. It also will include a trailhead for those seeking a destination along the Monon Trail and quick access for all visitors and local residents going to and from Grand Park. Henke said two

springmill corner Facing the hardest path for approval is the 6.5-acre commercial development on the southeast corner of 161st and Springmill Roads. Jesse Pohlman, attorney on behalf of Cooperstown Partners, said the development, which is directly across the street from the Kroger, would include a Walgreens and other tenants. “Cooperstown believes that its proposed redevelopment of the site provides an appropriate use at the intersection and that the high-quality architecture proposed complements and is compatible with the surrounding commercial and residential areas,” Pohlman said. Pohlman Pohlman said the economic impact would be $6.5 million with annual property taxes around $500,000 and local income tax revenues estimated at $44,000 annually. The development would also directly create 90 jobs with a payroll of $4.5 million. If approved, Pohlman said construction would begin next year. Approval, however, will come after a lengthy community discusCurrent in Westfield

bicycle shops have already expressed interest in locating on the boardwalk. “It’s a great enhancement of lifestyle recreation,” he said. Grand Village Park will include restaurants, retail stores, offices, medical buildings, multi-family housing, hotels and entertainment options. Because Grand Park will host youth tournaments in soccer, baseball, softball and other sports, Henke said parents and players need something to do during the hours in between games. “This helps to keep people here and allows us to get them to the Grand Junction,” he said. Land for Grand Village Park is owned by Don Day and his family. sion. Commercial growth on this corner has been controversial and many neighbors fought the construction of the Kroger a few years ago. “It has a colorful past,” said Robert Stokes. “It’s not a prudent move to develop here. It’s never just a Walgreens. CVS is looking and something follows that. We’re not looking at one corner; we’re looking at the other three.” “How long are people going to be mad about it?” questioned fellow councilman John Dibbel. “I’m over it. It’s time to let go and yes, CVS will follow.” Councilman Steve Hoover said the “damage was already done” when Kroger went in. “We need to come up with a transition between what exists today and the surrounding neighborhoods,” he said. “We can use this opportunity to further develop the intersection and mitigate what was done there six years ago. I want to hear what people have to say about this.” All three developments are in the form of Planned Unit Developments, which are designed to give developers more leeway to be creative in the way they piece together their master plan for business and/or residential growth. After the public hearing on Sept. 4, the developments are planned to have an Advisory Plan Commission recommendation on Sept. 17 and return to the City Council for adoption consideration on Oct. 8.

VIEWS

Opinion Bittersweet: 25 years for Prevail

Neil Armstrong It is our position that with the passing of Neil Armstrong we have lost a true American hero. The Purdue graduate and first man to walk on the moon passed away on Aug. 25 due to complications from a cardiovascular procedure. Neil Armstrong’s famous walk on the moon both captivated and inspired a nation. As the world sat glued to its television screens, Armstrong firmly placed himself into history as one of the greatest explorers as he stepped down that ladder and said his famous line. It helped us realize that, with a little teamwork and perseverance, anything is possible. Even after his last flight on Apollo 11, Armstrong stayed true to his values and did not let his fame become a distraction. He held on to his Indiana roots by staying connected to his alma mater, Purdue University. The fearlessness that Armstrong showed during his Apollo 11 flight and throughout his career as a U.S. Navy pilot and test pilot is a model character for generations to come. For someone who could have had the nation in his palm, he stayed humble and committed to his passion.

Dog day afternoon

Commentary by Terry Anker

Humans have domesticated and kept animals since the earliest times. Then, even as now, we shared our food and domestic arrangements with these furry friends. And they, like us, flourished because of the construct. Today, cats, dogs and just about every other sort of manageable beast from boa to potbelly can be found alongside Homo sapiens. To be sure, we benefit from the relationship. In fact, many people-serving institutions, from retirement homes, centers for the disabled and even prisons, include pet “therapy” in their work. Studies show that interaction with animals can bring profound change in the demeanor and, in some cases, the actual intellectual and physical capacity of a person. And dogs have been assisting the blind and those afflicted with seizures for generations. Likewise, many police departments rely heavily on the contribution of their canine counterparts. So what is it that our loyal companions hope to find from us in return?

Sure, it is good to be in the company of the king of the food chain. Our pets, in the best cases, are well-treated members of the family. They can expect to live long lives secure from the threats that their wild cousins must endure. One is reminded of the great scene from the Disney classic “Lady & the Tramp,” wherein Tramp tries to convince Lady that the undomesticated life is best. Perhaps it is a thinly veil comment at when any of us choose marriage over the single life, but it also gets at the point that the sacrifice of domestication is well compensated. Yet likewise, alongside many of us, our animals endure the worst of the human condition. Some are beaten. Some are eaten. Yet they stay close as if somehow knowing, even if we humans forget, we are all better and safer for being together.

We knew why we were there – the two of us and our spouses, along with Terry, Carolyn and Pat Anker of Carmel, Erin Heller of Westfield, Amy Frolick of Fishers and Jacque Bilbrey of Noblesville. A week ago, Prevail Inc. celebrated the end of its 25th year of standing in the gap for victims of domestic violence and sexual abuse. The Renaissance Indianapolis North Hotel in Carmel provided the backdrop for an elegant evening of information and celebration. Current again proudly was a sponsor, and we shall continue to be so until Prevail decides otherwise. It was a bittersweet affair, we all agreed. For all the money raised through silent and live auctions, and the hilarious “hootin’ and hollerin’ ” that went along with the latter, we also watched and listened intently as a father recounted the horror visited upon his then 8-year-old daughter – and why Prevail is, well, Prevail. There weren’t too many dry eyes in the house as this brave soul detailed not only the crime – for which, based on a technicality, there was no punishment – but also the way the staff at Prevail became a fierce protector and a mentor for this little girl, her mom and her dad. Prevail offers free service to Hamilton and surrounding counties – yes, sadly, it does “happen here” – in confidential, supportive and non-judgmental ways. Victims of sexual or otherwise abusive crimes are urged to call Prevail now at 776.3472. Those of us fortunate enough to have not been associated with something so horrific need to do our part. We can donate cash or our time. Simply call Michelle Moen at 773.6942 to learn how. Prevail needs us. Please join us in helping the organization to continue making a difference.

Opinion

A blast from the past

Commentary by Danielle Wilson

I came across this obituary while cleaning out the storage room: Dodge “Big Red” Caravan, 11, of Carmel, returned to her maker Aug. 22 after a long and difficult battle with a slipped transmission. This fiery redhead was born Jan. 1, 1998, to another family, but was adopted by Danielle and “Doo” Wilson on May 23, 2001. A long-time resident of Carmel, Big Red worked in many capacities, most importantly as a conveyor of children. During her short but adventurous life she made road trips to Kentucky, Florida, Illinois, Ohio and South Carolina, as well as hundreds of grocery runs, soccer carpools and furniture hauls. She often sacrificed her pretty gray upholstery and clean shiny windows to entertain Crayola-toting, milkshake-spilling toddlers, and on at least one occasion gave selflessly of her dashboard to provide a makeshift urinal to a wayward bird. Touching. Never one to conform to society’s expectations of what constitutes beauty, Big Red drove proudly without a driver’s side hubcap for more than a year before her death. She will be remembered fondly for her unique “zoo” aroma, her coordinated door scratches, her coin-filled air vents and her lack of air conditioning. She celebrated her 100,000 mile mark among family and friends with a tire rotation and an oil change. And last year, she proved that age doesn’t

matter as she successfully completed a four-hour roundtrip jaunt to Louisville without overheating. Big Red was preceded in death by Volkswagen Jetta, Toyota “Rav Rav” Rav 4, Ford Taurus and Chrysler Pacifica. Though she never married or had little mini-vans of her own, Big Red was cherished by many. She is survived by her grieving parents, Danielle and Doo; her faithful riders, Geoffrey, Andrew, Corinne and Madelaine Wilson; two nondescript siblings, Dodge “Dad’s Car” Caravan and Honda “No Nickname Yet” Accord; and a horde of saddened passengers, young and old alike. There will be no visitation. A private cremation service will be held at the end of September. The family would like to express their deepest appreciation to President Barack Obama and his timely Cash for Clunkers Program. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to your local Tire Barn. Fair parting, Big Red! May you find peace (and a hubcap) as you drive along that heavenly highway to Scrapville. You are already deeply missed. And though you have been replaced by a silvery younger model with a black interior, you will never be forgotten. So true. Peace out.

Humor

In pursuit of watermelon Commentary by Mike Redmond I’ve gathered you here today to discuss an item of grave importance, something that has been on the minds of many during these troubled times; an issue so great that it may indeed have a direct bearing on life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness: How to pick a ripe watermelon. Ok, life and liberty probably aren’t at stake here, although you could make an argument that a really good watermelon is included in the pursuit of happiness. I get asked about this all the time. I don’t know why. I guess there’s something about me that says, “Here’s a man who knows his watermelons.” Probably because I look like I swallowed one. I know three basic Watermelon Selection Protocols: The Thump, the Crack and the Spot Check. My dad believed strongly in the Thump method. He would go through an entire bin of Charleston Grays, rapping them all with his knuckles until he found one that sounded just the right note – a slightly hollow B-flat. Which, coincidentally, was the same note sounded when he used the Thump Technique on my skull. I have tried this method, but I have to thump my head first to get the right note, and after two

or three tries I have a headache and don’t want watermelon anymore. My brother uses the Crack method. You lean on the watermelon and if it makes a quiet cracking sound, it’s ready. You have to be careful about this one. A loud cracking sound means you leaned too hard and you’re buying that melon whether you want it or not. This leaves the Spot Check method. You turn the melon over and look for the spot where it sat on the ground. If it’s white, don’t buy it. If it’s yellow, do. If there is no spot, put down the eggplant and get your eyes tested. I’ve decided to go with the “What The Heck” method. You pull one out of the bin and say “What the heck, maybe it’ll be ripe.” By my reckoning, you have just as good a chance this way as you do with thumping, cracking and checking, and as a bonus, it turns a watermelon into a Christmas present. You never really know what’s inside until you open it. It might be a wonderful surprise, or it might be socks and underwear. You take your chances. And if you hit the jackpot, a good watermelon is well worth the purfuit. Mike Redmond is an author, journalist, humorist and speaker. Write him at mike@ mikeredmondonline.com or P.O.

The Civic Theatre brings ‘A Chorus Line’ to the Tarkington

“Trouble Man” by T.I. – In stores and available for download Tuesday, the eigth studio album from hip hop recording artist T.I. features the singles “Love This Life,” “Go Get It” and “Ball.”

By Christian Sorrell • christian@youarecurrent.com The Civic Theatre’s 2012 – 2013 season kicks off Friday with a true Broadway classic, “A Chorus Line.” Originally produced in 1975, the show was a critical and box office hit that went on to become the sixth longest-running Broadway show in history. Telling the story of a group of dancers auditioning for spots on a chorus line, it is clear to see why guest director Ron Morgan and producer Michael Lasley would have Lasley an interest in putting on the show. “For a lot of us in my generation, this is one of the shows, if not the show, that made us want to do this,” said Lasley, gesturing around the theater. Morgan “Although I feel like there are many new inspirations for young performers, I think that the show still carries all of the inspiration it always has,” said Morgan. The inspiration seems to also have found its way into the cast who appear genuinely interested in telling a story that, in some ways, mimics their own lives. “The actors are excited about telling a real story, which they can relate to,” said Morgan. “They are really honored to be a part of this show.” As a result of “A Chorus Line” taking place www.currentinwestfield.com

almost entirely within a dance audition, there is very little in the way of a traditional set or scene changes. While this may seem like it would make the show technically simpler, Lasley and Morgan have found that they have simply needed to work harder on the technical aspects that are present such as lighting and sound. As a result of the size of the Tarkington’s stage, the Civic’s production of the show will actually be somewhat larger than the original Broadway performance. The main set consists of multiple 24-foot, three-sided periactoids that rotate, allowing the entire scene to be changed with the turn of a backstage crank. With a black side, a mirrored side and a side saved for the show’s finale, the periactoids make for quite an impressive backdrop almost double the size of a standard “Chorus Line” production. Beyond the unique background, Morgan and Lasley are quite proud of what they have been able to create within the Center’s cutting-edge facility. “A big star of our show is the lighting. It’s just so important that the lights tell a great

story, especially in a show with as little set as this. Lighting has seen a number of big technical improvements since the show was originally conceived,” said Morgan. “We are pushing the limits of the sound system as well,” said Lasley. “The orchestra will be covered and piped in through the sound system to really create the feeling of being inside the audition space, where there wouldn’t be a full orchestra.” With a number of professional and concert dancers in the cast, Morgan’s extensive choreography background and the show’s strong technical aspects, “A Chorus Line” promises to be an impressive display of Community Theater on a scale larger than the original. “When a theater can pull off ‘A Chorus Line’ and do it well,” said Morgan, “that’s the time to do it.”

The Booth Tarkington Civic Theatre will be presenting “A Chorus Line” Sept. 7 through Sept. 22. Tickets are available now at thecenterfortheperformingarts. org or by calling 843-3800.

By Christian Sorrell • christian@youarecurrent.com This Friday and Saturday, Carmel’s Holy Trinity Greek Orthodox Church will play host to the 39th annual Indianapolis Greek Festival. Dean Antonopoulos, the festival’s vice president, has been involved with the event for nearly 20 years. “The first event was held in 1974, and our purpose at that time was to share our Christian and Hellenic traditions as well as creating a fundraiser for the parish,” said Antonopoulos. While food has always been a primary aspect of the festival, organizers this year are hoping to raise the level of cuisine available to include more than the standard festival food stands. “This year we are introducing restaurantstyle gyros carved directly from the spit and a dedicated sit-in dinner area that includes Greek lamb and chicken, along with a much-improved Greek wine selection that was given to us by a sommelier,” said Antonopoulos. In addition to the cuisine, traditional Greek music and dance is another focus of the festival. Kosta and the Wave, an all Greek band, will perform traditional favorites both days of the festival. All of the Holy Trinity Hellenic Dance Troupes will be performing alongside the band. The troupes range in age from pre-elementary children just beginning to dance all the way to

experienced adults. “When we moved to Carmel in 2009, our first year had (an attendance of ) more than 16,000. The last two years, we’ve had rain on one of our days of operation which diminished attendance considerably. However, we are a ‘rain or shine’ event so we can still cater to our faithful patrons,” said Antonopoulos. The Indianapolis Greek Festival has partnered with Indy Crop Walk to offer free admission on Saturday from noon to 4 p.m. for each person donating at least three canned goods.

Preparing for the season August is here. It’s been months since you’ve thought about tailgating, hasn’t it? There were things that came to mind at the end of last season that you meant to do, but now the days have passed by and you don’t even remember what they were. Fear not! Here are simple ideas to get you started: • Make a list of your equipment. There will be tables, chairs, tents, grills, coolers, flags and much more. • Get this equipment out of storage and check each piece for cleanliness, wear and tear and its importance in your tailgate set-up. • Is there something you need to replace or even eliminate? • Is there a new gadget on the market that is better than what you’re using? • Check for end-of-summer bargains online and in the sale tabloids. This time of year, cookout and camping gear generally goes on season-ending sales. • Get out the schedule for home games and check the times. 8 p.m. and noon starts may require entirely different menus. • Contact your tailgating companions to get their thoughts.

• Start planning the menu for the first game. This week’s recipe is pasta salad which is good for early season, warm-weather tailgating. This pasta has a bite from the ranch dip, but it won’t overpower your main courses like sausage, burgers or chicken. Ingredients: One package of ranch flavor party dip, 1 cup of sour cream, 1 cup of milk, 1 pound of your favorite pasta, 3 cups assorted veggies, 1 cup of large pitted olives, 1/4 cup crisp chopped bacon pieces Preparation: Prepare the party dip per directions with a wire whisk. Let the mixture thicken in the refrigerator. Cook the pasta al dente and then drain it in a colander. Using a large, plastic, re-sealable container, add the pasta, chopped veggies and bacon. Chill the mixture in the fridge overnight. On game day, mix in the party dip and put the container into your cooler. It’s ready to go, and by tailgate time it will be great with any sandwich or chicken.

Slow down – Set a timer for 20 minutes and transform yourself into a slow eater. Teaching yourself to savor each bite, and have your last bite match up with the timer going off, and find yourself eating less. Eating quickly blocks fullness hormones and contributes to overeating. - www.webmd.com Back to school – The "Freshman 15" is not inevitable; learn how to fight it. Map out a specific fitness routine at the beginning of the semester, and stick to it. Consider joining a club or intramural sport. Resistance bands and stability balls also are great options for staying fit within the confines of your dorm room. - health. usnews.com/ health-news

Tell you the truth – Honesty truly is the best policy when it comes to your mental and physical health.

Bumblebees and a Yellow Jacket Commentary by David Cain

Perhaps one of the coolest mascots ever, the Georgia Tech Yellow Jacket, is a feisty little bee that looks to me the perfect mixture of cute and menacing. I was visiting the campus for an event unrelated to the school when I noticed a bookstore loaded with bee accessories. It was the perfect find for a father in need of ample booty to return home to little ones. I rolled into the store and surveyed the horizon. Armed with a reasonable budget, I was blown away when I discovered the bumblebee mascot. Cups, little shirts, little hats, little socks, stuffed bumblebees. It was catnip. I stepped back and took a breath. I decided that I should call home and make sure my little girls would be as enamored with the bee as me. I made the call. The first discussion went quickly: “No bee, Daddy, I want a stuffed cat or candy.” Okay, that works. For the second call I knew I had to work for it if that little bee was joining me on the plane. “You want Daddy to bring you a yellow jacket?” Who could resist that leading statement? Of course she said yes. Our discussion continued with a complete description that included my confirmation that the yellow jacket had antennas and a stinger. I had this little guy all picked

out; he was amazing – a little scary, I admit, but certainly something we could overcome. I had visions of her loving it so much, taking the bee to bed every night as her go-to animal and rewarding me with sweet kisses and an endless supply of “I love you’s.” I arrived home anxious to give my gifts. The prized bee had traveled the entire trip by my side. I took out the bee and was greeted with screams. Her cries of sorrow and disappointment were not because of the bee’s menacing look. Instead, it was a mismatched expectation. You see, she was expecting a yellow jacket that she could wear, complete with antennas and a stinger, not a stuffed bumblebee. It was just another reminder of how important clear communication is for people and businesses. It’s a reminder of how important it is never to make an assumption that who you are talking to will understand your jargon. It’s important to remember you have to be thorough. Well, it’s something I’ll remember every time I see that bee staring at me in his new home – my office. David Cain works at Magnitude, a sales and marketing company.

The Basilica of St. Mark. (Photo by Don Knebel)

Busby Eye Care

A body divided Commentary by Don Knebel Venice, encompassing 188 islands strung together by about 400 bridges, is perhaps the most unusual city in the world, with canals serving as roads, boats serving as buses, and gondoliers serving as aphrodisiacs. From catching the water taxi docked at the airport to buying gelato from a street vendor to watching glass blowers create pieces of art in nearby Murano, nearly everything about the Venetian experience is unique. More than 20 million visitors a year crowd colorful St. Mark’s Square, where they mingle with jugglers, dancers, musicians, live statues and pigeons. Unknown to most of those visitors, for more than a thousand years Venetians have shared with Egypt their most prized possession -- the bodily remains lying in the magnificent Basilica of St. Mark. In the early part of the ninth century, Venice lacked a suitable Christian relic commensurate with its growing power. So, in 832 A.D., Venetian merchants crossed the Mediterranean to

Dr. Kathleen Busby | Dr. Erin Buck 16409 Southpark Drive, Westteld, IN 317.896.5005 | www.busbyeyecare.com

Alexandria and stole the body claimed to be that of St. Mark. The remains were smuggled out of Egypt in a barrel of pork so the Muslim rulers of Alexandria would not inspect it. Egyptian (“Coptic”) Christians have long accepted the idea that the body of St. Mark now lies in Venice, but insist that the thieves somehow left his head behind, where it remains preserved in St. Mark’s Coptic Orthodox Church in Alexandria. In 1968, Pope Paul VI, considered the successor of St. Peter by Roman Catholics, delivered to Pope Cyril VI, considered the successor of St. Mark by Coptic Christians, a bone fragment from Venice to rejoin the head in Alexandria. In such small steps does interfaith understanding and reconciliation begin. Don Knebel works for Barnes & Thornburg LLP. For the full column and more photos, log on to currentzionsville.com.

Et cetera Five ways to increase your happiness LIFESTYLE

Commentary by Kristen Boice What do you want more of in your life? Happiness? Peace? Love? Many people report wanting more happiness and peace with themselves and others. They feel lost on how to get it. Everyone has issues and struggles in their lives. There is no such thing as a perfect person. We may strive to be perfect in order to gain acceptance. Many people think being perfect or having the latest and greatest material possessions such as clothes, houses, cars, technology, jewelry, cosmetics or shoes will make them happy. Once they have the items, they quickly realize they’re just a black hole. There are several killers of happiness: Trying to be perfect; people pleasing; taking things personally; victim-thinking; blaming others; and addictions. But, it’s never too late to make changes. How can we increase our happiness? Below are five steps: 1. Discover what you love and take action. What are you passionate about? What do you love spending your time doing? Be intentional and make more time to do these things. This will bring more joy into your life instantly.

2. Don’t take things personally. We tend to take things people say or do personally. We are hurt or offended by others’ words. Wouldn’t life be a little more peaceful if we had a deeper understanding that it’s not about us? If we trigger another person, it’s because there is something from their past they might need to explore. 3. Take every situation as a learning experience. Ask yourself, “What can I learn from this?” “What is the lesson in this challenge for me?” Everything happens for a reason. We just may not discover that reason until after we’re through the experience. 4. Take ownership of your choices and behavior. Let go of excuses and own your issues. Don’t get caught up in the blame game. 5. Forgive. Forgive. Forgive. Maybe you need to first forgive yourself to forgive others. Work through your own pain and hurt so you can let go and move on. If we learn from difficult and painful situations, we walk away empowered and no longer a hostage to the past. Forgiveness is not forgetting; it is simply no longer letting it have power over you so you can move into more happiness.

‘Share a memory’ challenge Commentary by Darla Kinney Scoles With the competitive spirit fueled by the recent Olympic Games still fresh in our minds, a family history contest seems to me the perfect end-of-summer endeavor. Enter, Dear Myrtle’s 2012 “Share a Memory” Contest! Running now through Sept. 30, (with winners to be announced Oct. 5 during Family History Month) the contest asks participants to simply post a favorite memory, choosing from a variety of formats. Easy! Here are a few suggestions from Dear Myrtle: “The entry could be a child’s memory, an ancestor’s story, a reunion memory, a recipe story, a back to school memory, a family ski vacation story, a camping trip memory, a water-skiing story, a miracle memory, a do-ityourself project story, a favorite thing memory, a cousin story or a birthday memory. Remind a 5-year-old how proud you are he can ride his bike without the training wheels by sharing the video clip on YouTube for the world to see. Blog about how you made that family photo quilt. Use Instagram to begin sharing ancestor

photos with your siblings and cousins, preserving family history. Share a joke your dad always used to tell via Facebook or your own blog. Create a short video clip about that old family heirloom.” Any story to preserve the memory for your family members can be submitted to this contest. To enter the 2012 “Share a Memory” Contest and find the guidelines necessary to do so, visit www.dearmyrtle.com and click on the contest post under “Blog Archive.” Prizes for this event include a Kodak PlaySport (Zx5) HD Waterproof Pocket Video Camera - Aqua (second generation) and $50 and $25 Amazon gift certificates. Memories are, of course, priceless – but sometimes a bit of a cash incentive helps us document things a bit sooner. Happy sharing! Darla Kinney Scoles is a freelance journalist living in Noblesville. Her most recent work involves the creation of “Stories”, an individualized writing service helping people get their personal histories down on paper. Contact her at darlakinneyscoles@gmail.com.

INSIDE & OUT

Indoors

Change is not only good, it is essential Commentary by Vicky Earley Times change, people change and lives change. Change really is a good thing. So what can you do to keep a room or a home from looking dated? Well, I say there’s nothing you can do to keep a room from looking dated more effectively than tweaking and changing as time goes on. Easily remedied trends that could be dragging your home into the past include more than the golden oak cabinets that were the signature style of the 80s. These anachronisms can be more subtle: things that might escape your attention because you are accustomed to seeing them each and every day. Look out for bad faux finishes. Whether you brought out the sponge and newspapers or went the distance and turned the job over to a pro, there are just some faux finishes that are ready to be painted over. I am not talking about faux finish in general … I am referring to the swishes and swirls left over from the early days of faux. There are some faux finishes that have hit the scene and are fresh and many have nothing to do with actual paint.

Vinyl letters should go on a mail box, not your wall. It was endearing five years ago, but the vinyl letters of the 90s didn’t even make the Off the beaten path – We all know the signs of ripeness in the mainstream fruits and vegetables, but what about things like eggplant? Ripe eggplants are shiny and firm – press on one with your thumb and the indentation should spring right back. The fuzzy, green cap should be tightly attached as well. - everydayfood.com

www.currentinwestfield.com

charts as a trend … they were simply a momentary fad. Luckily, they are vinyl and should peel off easily. Avoid the family wall of fame: Family photos that extend the distance of the staircase not only add clutter to the overall appearance of the room, they lose their opportunity to shine and be special. Sometimes you need to stand back from a picture to actually see it. There are some stunning ways to display family heritage but that is a column of its own. Chalkboard paint is for children. Several months ago I saw a chalkboard headboard featured on a website called Apartment Therapy. All I could think of was that this was a painful about-face to growth and maturity for those who are well beyond grade school. Chalkboards for children: good. Chalkboard paint for a grown-up house: bad. Bite (and throw away) the big brass bullet. I thought they had all been removed and taken to Goodwill, but I had a rare sighting of one several weeks ago. They are the long glass and brass entry fixtures that were the staple of the late 80s. This is not a style that stood the test of time. Be glad that you got 25 years of use out if it and say good bye. Vicky Earley is the principal designer for Artichoke Designs in downtown Carmel.

Underfoot – Are you trying to add a formal element to your home, perhaps a dining or living room? Don’t tank the whole project by choosing the wrong carpet. Aside from hardwood, which embodies formality, a Saxony plush or random shear texture is your best bet. Thinking of saving money and choosing the twist (also called frieze or trackless)? Don’t; it will downplay the upscale look you’re going for. - www.almanac.com

No Fuss Face

We all have those days where we plan on sticking close to home, running a few errands, maybe hitting the gym in the late afternoon, or meeting a couple girlfriends on the Monon with strollers in tow.

Expi Septembe res r 11, 2012

While a ponytail is a very acceptable (and even chic) hairstyle for these activities, we cringe at the idea of being out in public (or out of our bathroom for that matter) without paying some sort of attention to our face. Follow these steps for a low maintenance but fresh look: 1. Dot concealer on blemishes and under eye circles with your finger. Concealer will help even out your skin tone without needing to apply a layer of foundation. 2. Dab a tiny bit of liquid or gel blush to your cheeks and use your finger to blend it in for a fresh glow.

Fall Skincare While most of us focus on protecting skin in the summer, it is important not to neglect your regimen during the fall. Here are five tips for maintaining healthy skin past the summer months:

3. Apply a stroke or two of mascara, or simply use an eyelash curler to accentuate and widen your eyes. Makeup for Teens

1. Continue to use SPF! The sun’s rays are still powerful during fall, and can cause even more damage to those caught unaware. Use at least SPF 15 to continue to protect your skin.

Most young women are obsessed with makeup but they often don’t have the knowledge or confidence to make it work. Teens love trying trendy colors and textures, but a fresh, young face should never be smothered in makeup.

2. Exfoliate skin twice a week. This can help remove dry skin and uneven tone caused by exposure to the sun during the summer. 3. Moisturize, moisturize, moisturize! Fall air is dryer without the humidity of summer, so your skin needs extra nourishment to stay healthy. 4. To get rid of chapped lips, carry around a trusty tube of balm or Chapstick. Exfoliating lips lightly with a toothbrush can also get rid of dead skin on your pucker.

Teens should skip an all over foundation. Cover blemishes with a blemish stick and then dab on powder in the oily T-zone, but avoid slathering on a heavy, liquid foundation.

5. Stay hydrated and exercise! Besides the multitude of other benefits, doing so can help maintain a fresh and healthy glow.

Makeup should also not be used to look older. This can result in an unnatural, harsh look. Keeping colors light and sheer will ensure the fresh, youthful glow still shines through.

Call and schedule an appointment with one of our trained estheticians for more skincare advice!

Trick of the Trade: To avoid drawing attention to braces, skip bright lip colors! Stick to a tinted lip balm or sheer gloss.

Outdooes Staking down trees not necessary INSIDE & OUT

Commentary by Holly Lindzy

As if a newly planted tree might suddenly up and runaway, homeowners have this ceaseless urge to anchor it to the earth. Where do they think the tree will go? I don’t know, but I’ve seen all sorts of creative ways to tie down helpless trees. Ropes, rubber hoses, even shepherd’s hooks; there are some mighty imaginative tree lovers out there. I know it’s only because they think they are doing the right thing, but there are really only two situations where a tree needs to be staked. In no way are you going to straighten an established crooked trunk. So, if the tree was acquired as a bare root tree and does not have an established root ball to anchor it, or if the tree is planted in an extremely windy site (which is not really the best scenario anyway) then stake it for one year. The life of the tree, contained in the vascular tissue, lies just below the bark of a tree and takes water and nutrients back and forth from the roots to the leaves. As a tree grows, anything that is tied around it remains. It doesn’t break open with the growing tree – the tree bark just grows around it. Then as the bark starts to swallow the material that is binding the tree, eventually the vascular tissue is severed and decline of the tree follows – a sad situation called girdling. If you have to wrap something around your tree, be sure to remove it after one year. And if you must stake your tree for some reason, be sure not to stake it too tightly, so that it has some room to move when a wind comes. Otherwise, if it is staked too tautly, the trunk might C H O K E

Commentary by Larry Greene

Remodeling

Laundry room update for family

Original laundry room: This home is located in the Brentwood development on the east side of Carmel and was built in 1986. The owners moved in during 2006 and were not happy with how the existing laundry room looked. “It was old and drab. It lacked the function we needed as a family with two kids.” Remodeling goals: The homeowners considered their long term goals. “Our plan is to remodel the entire home over time, so we wanted to bring a look to the laundry room that would blend with the house now and in the future. We did not want to remodel again as the look of the rest of the house changed. We were looking for modern appliances and cabinetry, but with a look that would coordinate with the rest of the house.” Laundry room details: The new room includes new white stock cabinets with a Nantucket door style along with Staron solid surface countertops in pebble beach. The floor is covered with 8” x 8” tumbled Torreon stone tile

Before while the backsplash is a blue ice-blended tile from Dal Tile. Finally, new recessed can lights were added in the ceiling and the entire project area was freshly painted. Dog wash area: The owners spent time designing around the family pets. “This area speaks to the functionality we were looking for in the laundry room. We have two active dogs that get pretty dirty and we wanted an area where we could clean them off and not make a mess in the rest of the room. The design allowed both adults and kids to use the area easily. The sink height is good for the kids and the faucets make

After washing the dogs very easy.” Favorite features: According to the homeowner the new cabinetry made the biggest difference. “Our favorite part of the remodel is the clean lines of the new cabinetry.”
