OUR VIEWS

It is our position Hamilton County students are fortunate to have talented, dedicated, enthusiastic and, above all, effective teachers influencing them on a daily basis. We also find the amount of support and cooperation the teachers get from most parents to be impressive. We believe that cooperation from both parents and teachers is essential in the proper upbringing of our children. They need structure at all times of the day and that can only be achieved by a united effort between the two parties. The teachers we have in Hamilton County are some of the best and most dedicated in the state. Some even spend their well-earned free time working on lessons that will help our students remember the material more effectively. While the students may enjoy the lessons and learn a lot in the classroom, it is the parents who are vital in helping retain that information when they take an active role in helping with homework. We understand it can be tough to come home after a long day of work and sit at the kitchen table solving math problems, but without help, our teachers would be facing a tougher challenge than what is already posed.

Coaches training

It is our position those volunteering to coach should be highly praised for their willingness to spend their free time helping our kids with their respective sports. We also believe these coaches should go through training when it comes to dealing with our athletes, no matter the age of the player. All stages of childhood have their separate problems and these athletes, hopefully, see their coaches as role models with whom they can talk. We need to be sure that these coaches are trained to deal with problems because giving the wrong information can be disastrous. Not only do the coaches need to know how to deal with their players, but parents also can cause problems that need to be dealt with. While we understand the time requirements of coaching are great, we believe, they could be put into a sensitive situation and need to know how to effectively deal with the problem. And while we appreciate the time and effort coaches put in with our players, we believe they should receive the proper training so they can be ready for issues both on and off the field.

FROM THE BACKSHOP Walmart vs. Marsh: It’s coming An interesting grocery skirmish, we believe, is on the horizon in our city. You might know that retail giant Walmart, with a massive footprint at the north end of Village Park Plaza, has been renovating and enlarging its store. That has us wondering whether its addition of what amounts to a grocery store inside the store will have an effect on Marsh, which is situated to the south in the middle of the plaza. We view the one-stop-shopping convenience of Walmart, whose grand re-opening is Oct. 26, as a major magnet. Marsh has enjoyed something of a solo existence in the plaza. We see things heating up quite soon, and that only can benefit the consumer. ••• On the 10th anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2001, terror attacks on our great nation, Hamilton County Firefighters Local 4416 and the City of Noblesville will play host to a remembrance ceremony at 2 p.m. on the west side of the old county courthouse. In memory of those who scarified a great deal, speakers – among them Noblesville Fire Dept. Chaplain Stephen Schultze, Hamilton County Commissioner Steve Dillinger and Noblesville Mayor John Ditslear – will address the attendees. A beam from the World Trade Center site, or Ground Zero, will be

Quickie: Losing a VIP pal COMMENTARY By Danielle Wilson After four weeks, I finally feel I can write about the demise of our son’s pet gecko, Quickie, without short-circuiting my laptop with tears. A few months back, we learned Quickie was in kidney failure; the diagnosis hit our 10-yearold particularly hard. He had received Quickie as a sixth birthday present and watched the tiny lizard grow from two inches to 10. They had been roommates the entire time. Quickie’s infrared heat lamp was the perfect night light; it dispelled closetlurking zombies and nightmare-starring aliens. Each time we went out of town this summer, we didn’t expect to see Quickie alive when we returned, so we bid many farewells. It wasn’t until our annual family reunion in late July that our goodbyes would prove necessary. But I lost all composure when we broke the tragic news to our son. At the time, I told myself my pain stemmed from the hurt I knew my son was feeling; any mother would weep with her child while he grieved. I couldn’t possibly be upset by a reptile dying! I returned home that night to an unusually quiet house, empty except for our tabby, Ginger. I knew I had to do something with Quickie; she had been dead for more than 48 hours, but I just couldn’t strike up the courage to enter our son’s room. I stalled with unpacking, checking email, even doing dishes. At 8 p.m., I couldn’t

find any reason to put it off, and went to the garage to grab a shovel. The first pang of the metal into the hard dirt down by the creek set off waterworks. I didn’t even try to stop them. I cried for my son, I cried for, which Quickie and I cried for myself. Quickie was my first real pet, too. As a child I only had one dog, who ran away after three days, and a couple goldfish that died after a few days. Andrew’s gecko was the only animal with which I ever had a significant hand in raising, and now she was gone. After completing the shallow grave, I trudged back up to the house to get Quickie as the tears cascaded down my cheeks. I carefully wrapped her in plastic and carried her outside. This time I’m quite certain my sobs could be heard around the neighborhood, but I didn’t care. I managed to choke out a few words before covering her with a rock. It bore a simple, Sharpie-penned elegy: “Here lies Quickie. 2007-2011. V.I.P.” My 7-year-old came up with the last bit. I know she meant R.I.P., but somehow her initials felt better. For Quickie was our son’s, my, Very Important Pet. Danielle Wilson is a Carmel resident and contributing columnist. You may e-mail her at danielle@ currentincarmel.com.

Cornhole tournament to raise money for saving lives By Lindsay Eckert lindsay@youarecurrent.com Project Lifesaver is locating lives and bringing them home safely. The nonprofit organization was established in Virginia more than two years ago to provide wrist transmitters for patients with Autism and Downs Syndrome and Alzheimer’s. The transmitter provides a unique signal for each patient who has a tendency to stray from their loved ones at no cost. The organization is taking bigger steps in fundraising to help more families keep their loved ones safe. Project Lifesaver hosts several fundraisers throughout the year, including an Easter Egg Hunt and a day with Santa. This year, they are adding some friendly competition to their fundraising efforts with the Summer Bash, a poker ride and cornhole tourney beginning at the Harley Davidson motorcycles on 96th street beginning at 9 a.m. September 17. The The technogically-advanced system shares data for every patient across a national dispatch board. The transmitters, which are safe in pools and bathtubs, operate 24/7 and correspond with Hamilton County Sheriff department. Director of Project Lifesaver David McCormick said the system’s technology can bring

lifesaving information up in an instant. “Once a person goes missing the loved ones can call 911 and because of the transmitter information we can bring up a photo of the person, emergency contact information, health problems, etc. We can share this information nationally and even in Australia and Canada,” McCormick said. The program has had a 100 percent success rate, both globally and in Indiana. McCormick, a retired police officer who now works as a Hamilton County dispatcher, said the technology has decreased search time from 24 to 48 hours to 13 minutes. The program began in Virginia in 1999 and reaches 37 states and parts of Canada and Australia with 4500 nationwide searches in two years. The unique transmitter national correspondence allows families to travel, some for the first time. “Some families haven’t been able to live their hometowns in fear their children would get lost, they’d wonder if they went to Disney world their child would get lost and how would they be able to find them, but this information transfers to all dispatches and includes pictures and contact information.”

The sweet treats of Westfield Farmers Market By Lindsay Eckert lindsay@youarecurrent.com The fresh smells and musical sounds of Westfield Farmers Market have filled the air of downtown all summer and now the Friday night event is entering its third and final month of its first season downtown. The 130 Penn street location recently announced it will be extending their season through Sept. 23 due to its tremendous success and market-goers searching for their favorite treats aren’t the only ones happy about the extension. Vendors for the Farmers Market have doubled since the season kicked off in May. Kris Shoemaker , owner of Log Cabin Bakery, said she’s been a vendor at the market for three years. But, this year’s new location and atmosphere has brought the market into the heart of the community. “This is our hometown, where our children went to school to bring the market downtown gives it a new and pleasant atmosphere,” Shoemaker said. The fresh location proved to be a hot spot of inspiration for Boyd’s Fudge owner Lori Shreve who added summer zest to the traditionally comfort dessert, homemade fudge. “There’s appreciation and support for Indiana-made and grown products, it’s an encouraging environment and I wanted to be part of it [Westfield Farmers Market]” Shreve said. “It’s welcoming and inspired new summer flavors.” Shreve added fudge flavors like key lime, root beer and rainbow sherbet and chunky monkey to her array of 40 flavors including fall seasonal favorite, pumpkin pie and year-round classics along with diabetic-friendly flavors. Although Boyd’s Fudge and Log Cabin Bakery are different vendors, the two share a love for passing on their passion for baking to their children. Shoemaker, who hired her daughter as her summer employee, said her children inspired her to build and open her own bakery three

years ago. “I had always baked for my family, when my children went to college I missed baking and that lead to opening a bakery and selling our products at farmers markets and bizarres. It has been a special experience to meet people and see returning customers,” Shoemaker said. Shreve said her family’s love for making sweet treats has spread all the way to the North Pole. “My daughter lives in Alaska and she actually works at the Santa house in the North Pole,” Shreve said. “It’s neat to know she’s making fudge like we used to and being part of something like Santa house.” Shoemaker said she takes pride in selling quality products at reasonable prices. Her best-sellers are cottage rolls and chocolate buttermilk cakes. Rolls sell for $2.50 per half dozen and $5.00 for a 9 inch chocolate buttermilk cake. Although making fudge is something Shreve and Shoemaker enjoy with their families Shreve said the tradition behind her treats makes her work even more worthwhile. “I love making fudge, there’s usually a story with it, and people say they made it with their grandma or they always had it for holidays. It’s exciting to be able to take a walk down memory lane with people.”

1,000 flags memorialize, honor members of armed forces By Kevin Kane kevin@youarecurrent.com A local business is inviting the public to join in remembering Sept. 11 in a unique way. Indianapolis-based Buchanan Group will create what it’s calling the “Field of Flags” on the 10th anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks at the Oaklawn Memorial Gardens in Fishers. The event will include the placing of 1,000 flags to honor those who lost their lives in the attacks as well as to pay tribute to the men and women currently serving in the armed forces. “We have put up flags every year in the past since the attacks occurred, but this year we’re going to do a program, too,” said Maureen Lindley, who is coordinating the event for Buchanan Group. The program will begin at 8:30 a.m., and Lindley said it will follow a timeline that mirrors that of the attacks on Sept. 11, 2001. In addition to the 100 Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts’ placing the 1,000 flags by hand, the program will include remarks from keynote speaker, Indiana’s Adjutant General, Major Martin Umbarger of the National Guard as well as Josh Bleill of the Indianapolis Colts. Bleill lost both of his legs to a roadside bomb while serving in Iraq in 2006. He now works in community relations for the Colts. The public is invited to the free event, but

flags will be sold for $50 each. The “Field of Flags” will remain in place for about one week after Sept. 11, Lindley said. After that, those who purchased flags at the event will be able to take them home. There also will be a silent auction at the event, featuring items donated by more than 20 corporate sponsors and individuals. All profits, Lindley said, will be donated to the National Guard Relief Fund, which assists the families of deployed soldiers. “It is a family event,” Lindley said. “We want to encourage people to bring their families out.”

The skinny on salt

Current sits down with Hamilton County school officials to find out what has changed in the lunchroom By Jordan Fischer jordan@youarecurrent.com Gone are the days when a student could look forward to a lunch of a heaping plate of French fries and greasy pizza, says Andria Ray, director of nutrition and food services for Hamilton Southeastern school district. “What anybody thinks about is the old way,” Ray said. “Fatty meats, mashed potatoes and gravy with meatloaf… greasy pizza. Now in school food services, we’ve taken a lot of steps in reducing fats, using lean meats. We’ve taken out all fryers in our elementary schools. Fries are only available at the high school level, and only twice a week.” Today’s school lunchroom walls are lined with posters about portion sizes, varied diet and nutrition. The dessert table now holds fresh fruit and vegetable trays – and the dip is more likely to be hummus than ranch. The new cafeteria lineup “The biggest push was probably five years ago,” said Sue Dunn, who has been the food service coordinator for the Noblesville Schools District for 12 years. “All of our milk offerings are now skim or 1 percent. Eighty percent or more of our breads are whole grain or whole wheat, and that would include chicken nuggets and chicken patties. Pizzas have a whole grain crust.” Noblesville Schools, which will serve lunch to an estimated 6568 percent of its 9,500 students this year, added a dietician to its staff this year and has phased deep fryers almost entirely out of the district. “When I first started, frying was very common,” Dunn said. “Fries were a big, big item. We gradually took them off the line, and off the menus, and I think the kids are pretty used to it now.” The Carmel Clay Schools District has taken a similar, gradual approach to lunchroom changes, according to Amy Anderson, director of food services for CCS. “People are much more accepting of slow changes,” Anderson said. “You’re not going to take something and remove all of the flavor from it and expect them to eat it.” Catch-22 in the lunchroom According to Anderson, school food services have to strike a delicate balance between making food healthier and educating students about what it is they’re actually eating. “Our hamburgers have cherries in them, because it’s healthier,” Anderson said. “But do you tell kids that, and risk them not eating them anymore? You almost have to write one menu for the kids and another for the parents so they know what they’re actually eating.” And, according to Nick Verhoff, executive director of business and operations for Westfield Washington Schools, cost is always a factor. “I get asked by parents all the time, who say they could pack a lunch for cheaper than their students get at school,” Verhoff said. “Well, yes, you could, because you’re not paying labor, and benefits, and utilities. And that’s in addition to the food costs.” Lunch for an intermediate student in the WWS district is $2.50. At Carmel, it’s $2.25. Hamilton Southeastern charges $2.05 for K-6 students, and a K-6 lunch at Noblesville costs $1.75. But lunches packed by parents can often be a worse option, ac-

www.youarecurrent.com

cording to Rachel Miller, a dietician for CCS. “I’ve seen students come in with lunches packed with a slice of pizza, a fruit pie from McDonald’s and a can of soda,” Miller said. HSE’s Ray said her district has ramped up efforts to educate students about food nutrition, and has seen positive results so far. “I think a lot of times kids don’t realize how their food has been modified to make it healthy,” Ray said. “But now, it’s too important for kids to understand how critical it is they eat healthy and the benefits to them.” The great soft drink debate With 17 percent of children in the U.S., roughly 12.5 million, classified as obese, some schools have received heavy criticism for vending machine and soft drink sales. Although all four major school districts in Hamilton County do have contracts with Coca-Cola, school officials across the board say the machines are turned off during the day, including lunch time, and some like Hamilton Southeastern have even gone so far as to remove non-soda products such as Powerade from lunch time offerings as well. “It’s too much sugar and electrolytes for students during lunch time,” said HSE’s Ray “I don’t see students doing workouts in the lunch room.” Hamilton Southeastern recently signed a new contract with Coca-Cola that would bring $130,000 to the district. Although the contract was eventually unanimously approved, board member Sylvia Shepler and others voiced concerns about continuing to provide soda access in the schools. “I have a philosophical problem with this,” Shepler said. “We’re making money off of our kids’ health.” Monies received from school soft drink contracts go toward supplementing athletic, support and building funding for districts, said Nick Verhoff, executive director of business and operations for Westfield Washington Schools. “It’s not the lifeblood of any program,” Verhoff said, “but obviously every bit helps.” While some states have banned soft drink sales in schools completely, California being the first in 2003, a 2008 study published in the September issue of the “Journal of the American Dietetic Association” questioned a conclusive link between school soft drink sales and childhood obesity. According to the study, authored by Meenakshi Fernandes, then a doctoral fellow at the RAND Corporation, students who attended schools without soft drink sales consumed only 4 percent fewer soft drinks than other students. “We need to take a more comprehensive look at environments around schools, what (students) are doing at home and after school,” Fernandes said in an interview with U.S. News and World Report. “Perhaps we can have a greater impact through interventions this way.” CCS’s Anderson agreed. “A child consumes five lunches a week with us,” she said. “The average kid eats three meals and a snack every day, so that’s 28 meals a week. That’s 18 percent of meals a week they’re eating with us.” “We can influence that 18 percent of what they eat,” Anderson said. “I cannot influence the other 82 percent.”

Proposed USDA guidelines for 2012 could have major impacts on school food. One of the biggest items in the USDA’s crosshairs? Sodium. We interact with sodium most commonly as table salt, which is used by food providers as a preservative and flavor enhancer, especially in frozen and canned foods. A USDA food study reported that the typical school lunch can contain anywhere from 1,000 – 1500 mg of sodium, or from 40 - 60 percent of a student’s daily recommended sodium intake of 2,300 mg. The proposed guidelines would look to decrease sodium levels below 800 mg for a school lunch, with further reductions built in gradually over a 10 year period. Excess sodium intake is linked to high blood pressure, a major factor in stroke, kidney and heart disease. In Hamilton County, school dieticians report proactive measures already underway, among them: no-salt seasonings, rinsing canned fruits and vegetables to remove excess salt, and removing salt shakers from the lunchroom altogether. It’s important to note that a healthy amount of natural sodium is critical to regulate blood pressure and volume, and for muscle and nerve function.

But studies show that these antibiotic chemicals are no more likely than regular soap to prevent gastrointestinal or respiratory illness. In fact, for chronically sick patients, antibiotic soaps were actually associated with increases in the frequencies of fevers, runny noses and coughs. Also, in one Pakistani study, people who washed their hands with plain soap were able to reduce the incidence of childhood diarrhea by 53 percent. Those who

used antibiotic soap containing 1.2 percent triclocarban actually experienced slightly higher incidence of illness. -www.mercola.com » Weight loss myth –Many dieters believe eating several small meals a day is a guaranteed way to quash hunger.

Breast implants like cake and candy COMMENTARY By Barry Eppley Breast augmentation continues to be one of the most popular and successful body contouring procedures in plastic surgery. While it may seem hard to make the association of breast enhancement with confections and desserts, they are more closely related than one would think. This is because of two recent technological advances in the type of breast implants that are available and how they are implanted at the time of surgery. One important, but often overlooked, aspect of the surgical implantation of breast devices is placing into the breast pocket. When only saline implants were available this was never a concern as they were inflated after they were placed. This means very small incisions could be used for their introduction that were not even on the breast. Rolled up like a burrito, a saline implant is inserted through a one-inch incision and then inflated to the desired size. However, the reintroduction of silicone breast implants in 2006 required larger incisions for the pre-filled inserts. Plastic surgeons will frequently push and cram the breast implant through a small incision to prevent larger scars; a technique that weakens the implant’s shell and leads to premature rupture. However, a new and improved delivery method has had a positive impact. The new method uses a funnel, a tool that looks exactly like one used to decorate a cake.

The breast implant is now easily propelled into the implant pocket, all without ever touching the implant or squeezing it too hard in one place. Silicone gel is a better implant option than saline without risks for spontaneous deflations like a saline implant can (and eventually will). Although the health concerns from the early 1990s with have been dispelled, the concern about rupture and what happens to the material persist. Concerns lead to the development of advanced silicone materials that hold together more like a solid, resulting in what is known as the “gummy bear breast implant.” The “gummy bear breast implant” is more than just a cute nickname. It is a reflection how the silicone filling looks and feels, soft and spongy. Just like those cute little red, green and yellow bears, you can push, pull and even cut the material without losing its shape. The physical similarity between the new implant and the candy are striking. Breast augmentation continues to get better and more safe as the materials and techniques to deliver them improve. This gives women more options to choose what they feel best fits their bodies. Dr. Eppley is an Indianapolis board-certified plastic surgeon. Comments can be sent to info@ eppleyplasticsurgery.com

DISPATCHES » Does bulk really save? – According to research from Harvard Business School, paying a fee to shop leads people to think they are saving money even when they aren’t. The researchers acknowledge that membership stores do often sell products at a discount. But they suggest that shoppers are likely to buy more than they would otherwise when shopping at stores that charge a membership fee because they believe they are saving money. In some cases, the authors point out, products may be no cheaper than at a local discount store, where you can shop for free. -www.usnews.com » Stocking up on bulbs – Starting in January, the traditional 100-watt incandescent bulbs will become a hot commodity. New federal efficiency standards, passed as part of the Energy Independence and Security Act of 2007, will make the production of these bulbs illegal then, followed by 75-, 60- and 40-watt bulbs in later years. As the new standards gain publicity, consumers and designers are stocking up on these bulbs. The new, more energy-efficient alternatives are considered by many to cast a harsh, overly bright glow or too weak of a light. -www.msnbc.com

The number of closed sales in Hamilton County increased by 7.7 percent during May to July when compared to the same months in 2010.

With his son Stephen, Yacktman runs these two eponymous top performers. Many of the category’s top funds, including Yacktman’s, hold relatively few stocks or make big sector bets. Of course, a focused strategy can backfire, as it has in 2011 for Fairholme (FAIRX), which is heavily invested in financial stocks. Midsize-company stock funds Meridian Growth (MERDX) - Rick Aster, who has run this fund since 1984, sniffs out fastgrowing, high-quality companies and hangs on to them. Appleseed(APPLX) - This is a socially screened fund with a value bent and a sizable

Minor kitchen remodel: ‘New cosmetic features make a big difference’ COMMENTARY By Larry Greene ORIGINAL KITCHEN: This home is located in the Village of Mount Carmel neighborhood in Carmel was built in 1997.The kitchen was original and had been last decorated in the late 1990s. MOTIVATION TO REMODEL: The primary motivation for the remodel was to update.The kitchen hadn’t been updated since it was built. The homeowners had been thinking about remodeling their kitchen for a couple of years and finally decided to get serious. The old kitchen had white appliances, white accent hardware on cabinets and the original laminate countertops. NEW COSMETIC FEATURES: The homeowner loves the overall new look and said, “the whole look of the kitchen is more appealing to the eye. The look is very warm and inviting. It’s a joy to be in the kitchen.” CABINET MODIFICATIONS: A trim carpenter was able to make several changes to the cabinets including installing filler pieces to hide gaps near the appliances, adding new 1/8” rippled glass panels and adding new oak doors with arched frames. The homeowner said, “I love the glass in the cabinets, it gives them an extra

Before special look.” GRANITE & TILE BACKSPLASH: The new natural-stone tile backsplash includes 2”x4” Torreon Limestone installed in a staggered pattern with pencil molding and antique white grout. She updated her countertops with 3cm Delicatus granite with a demi bull nose edge. The new tops and backsplash are a more earthy tone and go well with the existing cabinets. The homeowner commented, “I love my new pull down faucet.” The new sink is a Bianco 32”x19” undermount sink in biscuit color while the faucet is a Moen Arbor model in oil rubbed bronze. NEW FINISH COLOR: The homeowner added, “The oil rubbed bronze accessories re-

Find Us on Facebook Bigger is Better Try these simple steps to help achieve the voluminous, bombshell hair that can now be found on magazine covers and all along the red carpet: To begin, towel dry your hair and mist a leave-in conditioner (such as Biominoil Leave In Treatment) and a volumizer (try Brocato’s Volumizing Tonic). Then begin blow drying your roots while pulling them away from your scalp. When your hair is completely dry, wrap 1-inch sections in Velcro rollers. Once your hair is set, blow dry with a diffuser for another 10 minutes on the hot setting, then 10 minutes on the cool setting. Alternatively, you could use large hot rollers or a curling iron once your hair is completely dry.

After removing the rollers, combine a drop of shine serum (like Brocato’s Shine Drops) and a light hold gel (Salon 01 brand Flex Hold Gel) in the palms of your hands. Run your hands throughout your hair and move your voluminous locks into place. For added boost, gently tease your roots around the crown of your head. Finish off the process with a blast of moveable hold hairspray to keep your ‘do in place. Looking for more hairstyling tips? Check out our blog at www.salon01.com/blog/.

Understanding a designer’s mind DESIGN By Sue Faulstich

Designers are meant to be loved, not understood. -Fabien Barral This humorous quote caught my eye as I was working in our design sample library. I promptly cut it out of the catalog in which I found it and tacked it to the bulletin board in my office. Understanding a designer is sometimes a lot to ask of a potential client in need of interior remodeling or updating. An interior designer, generally a right-brained individual, is often able to see a completed project in their mind before they are actually finished specifying all of the details. For some interior designers it is a practiced ability perfected over time. For others, the ability to visualize a finished space before any work begins is a natural part of their thinking process. After time spent in a resource library, on the internet, and in showrooms making selections for a project, a designer then has the task of presenting these ideas to a client. This is either a practiced or an inherent ability for a designer. As a designer I must constantly remind myself my client may be unfamiliar with “design” words and ideas. It is my mission to

www.youarecurrent.com

help them understand the big picture through photographs, drawings and samples as well as my words. Like a college professor’s lecture on a poem written by William Shakespeare, a design presentation should teach as well as tell a tale. Although I come from a lineage of skilled educators, I did not receive that particular gift. There are times when I am making a presentation and it is obvious by the blank stare I am getting from across the conference table that my client is not following me. So, fully aware my presentation skills are still a work in progress, I do my best to translate the images in my mind into a relatable story.  This story will allow my client and me to come to that mutual understanding that is so important in any relationship. Fabien Barral was able to put into words what a lot of interior designers think to themselves at the end of a long, tough day. His quote made me smile and inspired me to write this article.  However, a true design professional knows that to be understood is instrumental in every successful interior design project.

Positive versus traditional training methods

DISPATCHES » Parade of Paws kicks off DDA – Zeko Shoes’ sponsored event will kick off next weekend’s Dog Day Afternoon, one of the Humane Society for Hamilton County’s signature events, Sept. 11 at Carmel’s Civic Square. Dog Day Afternoon begins with the Zeko Shoes Parade of Paws dog walk on the Monon Trail at 11 a.m.  Help raise thousands of dollars to care for the unwanted, injured, abandoned and abused animals of Hamilton County. For more information, visit www.zekoshoes. com/dog_day.

COMMENTARY By John Mikesell How we know that training with lots of positive reinforcement-and without force or physical punishment –is best. What’s the difference? Today, in many areas of the country a dog is at least as likely to be enrolled in a class with a trainer who uses positive methods as one who still employs old fashioned choke chain or prong- collar coercion. As more dog owners and dog trainers see the light, clickers, treat bags, and positive reinforcement replace metal collars, shocks, and dominance theory. Many trainers who still fall back on compulsion tools will at the least start dog-friendlier methods, resorting to force and intimidation only when positive traning seems not to work for them. Dogs and humans alike are delighted to discover a kinder, gentler method that still gets results. Trainers, behaviorists, and dog owners are re-

alizing that this is more than just a philosophical difference, or a conflict between an ethics that says we should be nice to animals versus a more utilitarian approach to training. While both methods can produce well-trained dogs, the end result is also significantly different. With positive training, the goal is to develop a dog that thinks and works cooperatively with his human part of a team, rather than a dog who simply obeys commands. An Example Sit+ Positive method Show your dog a yummy treat, and move it slowly over his head. Most dogs will sit (sooner or later) so they can continue to watch the treat; just wait. When your dog does sit, “mark” the desired behavior with the click! Of a clicker (or say a word such as “yes!” in a cheerful voice) and feed him the treat. Repeat this about six to 10 times, with a click! And treat each time he sits. When you know he’ll sit easily for the treat

lure, say the word “sit” each time just before you lure. After six to 10 more repetitions, move the treat towards your chest (instead of over his head) and say “sit”. Continue to click and treat each sit. After another half- dozen repetitions, say “Sit” without moving your hand to your chest, and click! /treat when he sits. Continue until he’ll sit without any hand movements. Karma, and Izzy before would sit without treats after the training, however it is important to continue to give praise to your dog. What you can do Renew your commitment to positive training with your dog, if necessary, as well as positive relationships with others who share your life. Advocate for positive training with those who may not be as aware of the benefits of positive reinforcement. Buy extra copies of your favorite positive training books; donate them to your local libraries, to provide positive training resources to your community.

Humane Society to open satellite center today By Robert Herrington robert@youarecurrent.com The Humane Society for Hamilton County is opening a new, satellite adoption center located at Hamilton Town Center Mall today. The grand opening of the center will be held from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. and will feature shelter dogs and cats for adoption and raffle prizes from Three Dog Bakery. KJ from WZPL’s Smiley Morning Show will be on-site from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. “For anyone who has visited the shelter in the last few months, they know how full and overwhelmed we have been with a non-stop flow of animal intakes,” said HSHC Executive Director Rebecca Stevens. “That is why this satellite location is such a blessing to us in that we believe it will create many more adoption opportunities for our animals.” Stevens said the new adoption center will initially be open from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturdays with hopes of ramping up to Saturdays and Sundays in time for the holidays. The center will be fully equipped to do on-site adoptions and welcomes visitors to bring their dogs by to sniff and mingle with potential new siblings. A minimum of 10 dogs and cats will be featured each Saturday for adoption but will head back to the shelter at the end of each day if homes are not found. “We are incredibly grateful for the support we’ve received from Hamilton Town Center’s management team and Simon for making it possible for even more animals to find the for-

ever homes they deserve,” said Stevens. “We couldn’t be more excited about the grand opening event, and we hope the community will come out to celebrate with us.”

Dog Day Afternoon The Humane Society for Hamilton County has merged its annual Dog Day Afternoon and Woofstock Festival to create a bigger and better family-friendly festival designed to celebrate the bond we have with our canine companion from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 11 at the Carmel Civic Square (gazebo and fountains area). The event will include more than 75 exhibitors and food vendors and feature a full day of live music and canine contests. Admission is a $5 donation per adult.
