From left, 38th Sustainment Commander Col. Deedra Thombleson presented the Brigade’s colors to Westfield Washington School officials JoAnn Neff, facilities coordinator, WHS Principal Stacy McGuire and Nick Verhoff, executive director of business and operations, for the hospitality extended to the troops for their departure.

Shamrock Springs Elementary students Iris Turkel and Erica Hunkler made signs to thank the troops.

Thanking the troops

WHS graduate Emily Adamson, future Rock Ellen Volz and TOTS Assistant Debra Adamson showed their appreciation with flags and a sign.

City lifts mandatory water restriction – Westfield officials lifted the city’s imposed water restrictions for all water customers on Sept. 4. Cooler temperatures and steady rainfall over the past month aided in the decision to lift the water restriction. City officials would like to thank the water customers of Westfield, and the water customers served in Noblesville, for significantly reducing their water usage and lessening the strain on the water distribution system. Even though the water ban has been lifted, officials would like to remind its customers to monitor their water usage and conserve when possible.

Three file for school board

Three residents have filed for the Westfield Washington School Board election, to take place during the general election in November. The lone contested race is District 3 with candidates Duane E. Lutz and Robert P. Smith II. Lutz was appointed by the Westfield Washington Board Lutz of School Trustees to fill the District 3 seat vacated by long-time board member Tom W. Mullins, who retired and relocated to Florida in early June.

“I am honored to fill out Tom’s term,” said Lutz. “My goal is to gain a deeper understanding and perspective on how the school system operates and to contribute to the already great reputation of the district.” District 1 representative Dennis M. Ells will run unopposed for his sixth term. Currently the board secretary, Ells initially ran for a seat out of a desire to Ellis become involved in his children’s school district. He sees growth as the board’s major challenge during his tenure, and one that will continue for years to come.

Team No. 2 takes first place We meet every customer by accident. By Katy Zeller •

The Race Across Hamilton County began with an energetic leap forward at Ritchey Woods in Fishers and came to a competitive close at Forest Park in Noblesville. The second stop in the competition was Westfield’s Quaker Park. Stephanie Fix with the Westfield Parks & Recreation Dept. said of the four challenges, the “Worm Diving” provided contestants with the sweetest event. In this challenge, each participant was given a fishing pole with a gummy worm attached to the end and had to lower the gummy worm into a fish bowl full of pretzels, retrieve a single pretzel using the gummy worm, and eat the pretzel without using his or her hands. “They were blindfolded during this process and had to be verbally guided by their teammates. They also had to figure out the trick to the challenge, which was to lick the gummy worm before ‘fishing’ with it,” explained Fix. “This challenge was definitely a fan favorite!” When the dust settled, Team No. 2 (Shannon McDonald and Meachelle Wishart of Noblesville) took first place – and a $350 prize. “We both have our strengths and weaknesses

and seemed to really balance out between the two of us. The area that I wasn’t as strong with, Meachelle was strong with,” McDonald explained. Second and third place was a rivalry between two teams not only from the same city, but also from the same family. Jason and Kathryn Kempson (Team No. 16) and Jared and Becca Kempson (Team No. 19) of Carmel shared the same time down to the second. With both teams’ overall time recorded at 3:01:57, the judges had to use a tiebreaker to qualified for second or third place.

Meet your teacher: Shannon Simmermon Grade/Subject at what school: Kindergarten to fourth grade art at Monon Trail Elementary Number of years teaching: Four Background/Schooling (college & high school): Warren Central High School; bachelor’s of fine art, Herron School of Art & Design, IUPUI; bachelor’s of art education, Herron School of Art & Design, IUPUI; and master’s of education, Indiana Wesleyan University. Why did you become a teacher? I decided to become an art teacher after teaching for a Christian school for a couple years. I realized that I loved sharing art with kids and enjoyed watching them get excited about art. I also discovered at this time that I had a natural bent for teaching and I love kids! What goals do you have for your students? My main goal is to spark a love for art and to teach students how to express themselves through visual media and to help them gain confidence through critical thinking as they make art. As students are engaged in the love of art, I also want to help them make connections between art and all other areas of school subjects and their lives. What do you encourage parents to do at home to help their children strengthen particular skills? I encourage parents to hang their child’s artwork in a prominent place at home and ask them questions about it: What steps did you take to make that? What material

Simmermon is it made from? What’s happening in this picture? How do you feel about it? Parents can also encourage their child by making art with them at home. This is a great opportunity to spend quality talking time with their child and it also tells the child that they value art too. Name your favorite movie. “It’s A Wonderful Life.” I love the story of hope and redemption. Name your favorite musician or band. I have so many favorites, here are a few: Neil Young; Vince Gill; Crosby, Stills & Nash; Miranda Lambert; Frank Sinatra; Allman Brothers; James Taylor. What’s something your students might not know about you? I am learning to play the guitar.

Lantern Awards honor residents, businesses that make Westfield a special place to live and work By Katy Frantz and Robert Herrington • Every September, the Westfield Chamber of Commerce recognizes special residents and businesses that make Westfield unique with Lantern Awards. The main awards presented are Business of the Year – (Lantern Award); Citizen of the Year – (Beacon Award); Volunteer of the Year – (Wick Award) and also this year the Outstanding Service Organization – (Globe Award).

The annual presentation of the Lantern Awards is a time-honored tradition of the Westfield Chamber of Commerce. This signature event, initially called “Community Night,” began in 1982. It was redesigned and became known as the Lantern Awards in 2007. “The use of Lantern components was incorporated to compliment the logo used by the Chamber,” explained executive director Julie Sole. “The Lantern represents Westfield’s tie to the Underground Railroad.” Held each year in late September, the event is designed to bring the community together and provide an opportunity to share an evening of food, fun, and entertainment while the recognizing and honoring special residents and businesses. “It is the hope of the Chamber that each guest who attends the Lantern Awards will find the evening enjoyable as they meet new friends and learn a bit more about what makes the community of Westfield unique,” Sole said. The 2012 Lantern Awards will be held at the Palomino Ballroom on Sept. 22. Tickets are available for $50 per person. Reservations are required by Thursday and can be made by calling 804-3030.

Duane Lutz

Citizen of the Year As the former Chamber of Commerce board president, Duane Lutz has handed out several Beacon Awards. This year, the longtime chamber member will be on the receiving end. “It’s very humbling to receive the award,” said Lutz. “Having emceed the event a number of years, it means that much more. I know a lot of the people who won it in the past and to be in that class makes you feel good.” Lutz is the president of Hoosier Glass Co., Inc. which his grandfather started in 1956. He and his wife, Crissy, moved to Westfield in 1994 and shortly thereafter Lutz joined the city’s Lions Club and Chamber of Commerce, and has been an active member ever since. He has also serves on the Westfield Washington Education Development Foundation as president. In June, Lutz was appointed by the Westfield Washington Board of School Trustees to fill the District 3 seat vacated by long-time board member Tom W. Mullins who retired and relocated to Florida. With three children – Hana, Ethan and Isaac – in the school district, Lutz said it gives him a good reason to be involved.

This year the Westfield Chamber of Commerce will recognize CSI Signs with the Lantern Award for Business of the Year. “I was shocked that we received the award,” said Chad Huff, president of CSI Signs. “We have put a lot of time and effort in to the community, but there are a lot of other people and companies that From left, Cheryl Hunt, Dave Baughman, Amber Willis, Kristen Huff, JR Knight, Chad Huff, Chad Hartman, Jarred Hall, John Huff, Paul Grabowsdo the same.” ki and Steve Williams.

outstanding service organization The Heart & Soul Clinic, a warm and inviting clinic in a house on Penn Street, will be honored this year with the Globe Award. In 2007, Sandy Kirsch, a nurse with 20 years of experience, felt an urge to create a clinic for the uninsured or underinsured. “It was a God-led thing,” she said. Two years later, Kirsch started the clinic “with the help of several people, companies, organizations and one talented, hard-working handyman.” Those who enter the clinic will see the heart and soul of the nonprofit clearly written above the doorframe: “Love the Lord thy God with all thy heart and soul…” Since it opened in 2009, Kirsch estimates the clinic serves 250 to 350 people during the three hours the clinic is open on the second and fourth Saturdays of each month. “We have many wonderful and dedicated volunteers I would like to thank. Our providers are Dr. Suzanne Montgomery, Dr. Lisa Heart & Soul

Volunteer of the year “I was very surprised and taken back – like, ‘why me?’ I know some very deserving, dedicated people who won this award. I just do what I do not expecting any recognition for giving back to the community and volunteering,” Cindy Olson said of winning Olson the Wick Award. Olson said she became involved with volunteering through the Westfield Rotary Club – she recently finished a term as president – and her job within Westfield City Hall. “The city highly promotes its employees getting involved and volunteering,” she said, adding that some of the events she has participated in the past year through the city are food pantry fundraisers and Westfield’s Race for the Cure. While the club only has 38 members, the Westfield Rotary is quite active in the community with meals on wheels, open doors food pantry, high school student leadership and college scholarships and book donations to the public library. Olson said the Rotary’s signature program is the sensory garden at Freedom Trail Park, which is designed for people of all abilities. The garden includes swings for wheelchair-bound children, various playground equipment and landscaping which appeals to four of the five senses. September 11, 2012 | 9


Opinion Open the spigots, but do so sparingly

Honey Boo Boo for president? It is our position that registered voters should do their best to remain engaged in the election process this fall. There is no doubt that the political noise pollution could be potentially deafening as the final few months, days and hours leading up to Election Day on Nov. 6 approaches. The Democratic National Convention will be over by the time this editorial goes to print, however, here’s hoping more voters tuned in than their Republican counterparts who were beat out in the television ratings by a reality show, “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo,” featuring the adventures of a 6-yearold self-proclaimed “redneckognized” pageant starlet and her family. While watching back-to-back campaign speeches and crowd shots of red, white and blue clad convention delegates with confetti on their shoulders may not be the most exciting television, it is an opportunity to learn more about the candidates. Whether you open your wallet, attend a gathering, visit an official campaign Web site, listen to a candidate being interviewed on the radio or open up a newspaper – it is crucial to the success of your community and to the nation, that you can make an informed decision on Election Day.

Smelling the roses

Commentary by Terry Anker

“You should stop and smell the roses,” they admonish. Stop working, building and accumulating and enjoy fruits from that labor and the gifts of God. While I get the point, finding the balance continues to flummox me. Doesn’t it often seem like we trying to drink from a fire hydrant – the water is either absent or raging. Taking a tiny sip requires distance and perspective. Drink too close to the source and it’s going to hurt. We constantly struggle with the choices we’re forced to make between family, work, charity, spirituality and even ourselves. Perhaps this affliction of the modern age is of minor consequence. When one is starving or fearful of wild animals, priorities become very clear-cut. But in a world that fully meets basic needs, we have choice. And that freedom invites moral hazard. Work too much and family suffers. Work too little and they suffer in different ways. Spend too little time in reflection and our soul can lose its mooring. Yet if workers produce,

and correspondingly consume, too little, jobs would vanish for lack of demand, governments would fail for lack of taxes, charities would close for lack of support and tens of millions would suffer and die. In short: If we all smell the roses, who is planting, tending and preserving them? Absent care, how long can we expect them to flourish? Perhaps we simply align along lines of our natural ability. Some seek constant engagement while others prefer a more relaxed schedule. Even in the same household, one child may be eager to study and make their bed while her sister is equally eager to avoid work focusing instead on less productive pursuits. Does this bias stem from culture or genetics? Is one approach morally superior? Is there greater failure in over-work or underachievement?

Truth should never travel faster than Love. - Erwin McManus

Current in Westfield

Hopefully, this is a case of better late than never, but the City of Westfield last week lifted its mandatory water restrictions for all water customers. The drenching our city received on the tail end of what was Hurricane Isaac didn’t necessarily make up for the summer-long paucity of rainfall, but it did help. Cooler temperatures are headed our way, and, we assume, the usual autumnal rains, so there should be little to no strain on the city’s resources. So, it might not be too late to “rescue” flowerbeds and vegetable gardens, which benefitted from August rains. Lawns, many of which had gone dormant, should be able to revive themselves with watering. The city said compliance with the restrictions was significant. If you were a participant, you did the right thing, so take a bow. ••• We hope you’re planning to be a part of Westfield’s Grand Junction Funktion between 2 and 8 p.m. on Sept. 29. There will be live music, food and drink vendors and a marketplace all in action as a backdrop to the Outrageous Race, the city’s scaled-down, irreverent answer to the Indianapolis 500. South Union Street becomes a racecourse to gravity-powered, homemade derby cars competing in bracketed heats until winners are declared. For more information, visit ••• We offer a hearty round of applause to Marion County Prosecutor Terry Curry, who teamed last week with state Attorney General Greg Zoeller to warn Indiana retailers that they can expect a formal notice that continued synthetic drug sales could cost them their businesses.

My husband is a precious soul Commentary by Danielle Wilson Husbands are adorable, aren’t they? It’s in the way they can love their families so much that anything that takes them away is cause for great suffering. Doo is a perfect example. See, his work requires him to travel periodically for three to four nights at a time. During summer vacation, his absence is noticeable, definitely, but certainly tolerable. I’m still singleparenting four children, but I don’t have to worry about school activities, homework or making sure my kids shower. But when business trips happen during the school year, life gets dicey. Like last week. Doo was gone Sunday through Thursday, and as cruel fate would have it, so were my in-laws. Of course, the kids had events scheduled every night. So in addition to working full days myself and doing basic mom stuff, I had to attend two meet-the-teacher events and a cross country meeting, carpool kids to and from soccer and running practices, and coordinate who would be getting my 8-yearold on and off the bus each day since her older siblings are now on the middle school schedule. Suffice it to say, I was exhausted physically and mentally by the time Doo returned. But here’s what’s sweet. He honest-to-goodness thinks his week was harder; that sleeping in a hotel room and having to eat alone in a restaurant is far worse than being a single par-

ent. That being responsible for only one person, himself, is more taxing than making sure four short people are clothed and fed and mostly clean 24/7. His week was miserable not because of conference calls and data reports but because he wasn’t home with us. Isn’t that precious? Me? I could never miss my family that much. I would literally sacrifice our cat to have four nights of uninterrupted sleep in a bed that someone else has made. I’d throw in the creepy anoles to enjoy just one quiet dinner, no dishes attached, with only a good book for company. Call me a glutton for punishment, but I’d even donate my first-born son for six hours of driving, each way, when I can stop whenever and wherever I please while listening to whatever songs I fancy. Doo doesn’t get it, as I suspect few men do, and, consequently, is unable to validate my anxiety, exhaustion and jealousy while he’s away. I just come off as a selfish woman who can’t appreciate her husband’s sacrifices. In reality, though, I simply long for a break from routine, and if that means sampling faux-crab salad at Bennigan’s with Nora Roberts’ latest, so be it. I’ll leave the adorable bit to Doo. Peace out.

A guide to the local fall festival season By Christian Sorrell • Fall means one thing in Indiana: festival season. Indianapolis’ north side is in no short supply of its own. During the next two months, five events will celebrate the changing of the seasons, each in its own way:

Oktoberfest @ Saxony – Fishers Fishers Oktoberfest is a large, day-long event running from noon until 10 p.m. on Sept. 22. The focus of the event, like most Oktoberfest celebrations, is undoubtedly the local food and beer. According to Fishers Freedom Festival Executive Director Jennifer Kehl, the event is expected to see as many as 3,000 attendees over the course of the day. Oktoberfest celebrations are typically thought of as adult events due to their focus on beer, but this year’s Fishers Oktoberfest is hoping to create a more family-friendly experience with a number of free games for children and parents from noon to 6 p.m., as well as a focus on local arts and craft vendors.

Grand Junction Funktion – Westfield What originally began as a homemade derby car race between local business owners and school organizations has grown into a full-fledged fall festival. From 2-8 p.m. on Sept. 29, South Union Street in Westfield will be transformed into a gravity-powered race track surrounded by live music and food. Last year’s event saw a number of unique derby car designs: a Batmobile created by Westfield High School seniors, a three-wheeled recycle bin created by Westfield Public Works and even a blue-and-white Westfield police cruiser complete with flashing lights.

39th Annual Pumpkin Harvest Festival – Noblesville While most festivals last only for a weekend, Stonycreek Farm’s Pumpkin Harvest Festival begins Sept. 29 and runs through Halloween. Activities include everything from grinding your own wheat to a kid-friendly haunted house, and even a “cob cannon” capable of firing ears of corn. To commemorate the festival’s 40th anniversary, any person turning 40 during the months of September and October is invited to ride the farm’s zip line for free. 15th Annual Carmel International Arts Festival – Carmel

13th Annual Potter’s Bridge Fall Festival – Noblesville Centered on Hamilton County’s only remaining historic covered bridge, the Potter’s Bridge Fall Festival features local arts and crafts, live music and food. The event runs from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Oct. 6. It’s a great opportunity to get a bite to eat and stroll Noblesville’s scenic Potter’s Bridge Park.

For a full listing of dates, locations, activities and entertainment for all of the upcoming fall festivals, please see the Festival Calendar on the adjacent page. 12 | September 11, 2012

Wait out menopause for tummy tuck? Commentary by Dr. Barry Eppley Q: I am currently going through menopause and am considering a tummy tuck. I am on hormone replacements. I am having a lot of difficulty losing the belly weight. Should I wait until menopause is over? A: Going through menopause is not a contraindication to tummy tuck surgery. It in no way affects how the surgery is done, the success of the procedure or your recovery. Its only relevance is how you feel and whether you feel good enough to go through a tummy tuck surgery with the physical and mental challenges that menopause unfairly inflicts on women. As for what happens after a lipo-abdominoplasty procedure (combined tummy tuck and waistline liposuction), there is a common misconception that fat re-accumulates elsewhere, known as the fat homeostasis theory. Recent studies have Fool yourself – Sneaky tips, not big fixes, can often be very effective when it comes to weight loss. For example, using a salad plate for your dinner entree instead of a larger one can help you to eat less without even knowing it. And next time you go out, try ordering an appetizer for your meal. Calorically speaking, the main course at a restaurant is usually much larger than an appropriate portion size. Girl problems – It is no secret that high heels are painful, but what many do not know is that wearing them excessively can lead to everything from ankle sprains to chronic pain. Lower varieties with chunkier heels offer more support, but if you simply cannot give up your stilettos, consider orthotic inserts. - www.

Fill ‘er up – A study of 490,000 people found those who drank four cups of coffee daily were 15 percent less likely to develop bowel or rectal cancer, and those who drank six cups reduced their risk by 24 percent. The researchers at the U.S. National Cancer Research Institute asked participants about their diets and lifestyles a decade ago. - www.

Sweet tooth – When examining your options in the ice cream aisle, be wary of cartons marked as "light." While lighter ice cream has at least 50 percent less fat or 33 percent fewer calories than its regular counterparts, it is not automatically healthier. Compare labels to choose the lowest fat variety, and slowly consume just one half cup for maximum enjoyment. - www.webmd. com

Not too late – Have a late-summer sunburn after squeezing in a few last pool days? Try these home remedies: Add a few tablespoons of baking soda or oatmeal to a bath, which will soothe skin. Strangely enough, blended potato mash or cornstarch can also help with pain if they are rubbed on affected areas. -

Umbrella policies help plan for the worst Commentary by Jamie Ianigro Question from Desmond H. of Fishers: All this crazy weather and the commercials asking people if they’re covered for a certain situation has got me thinking: How do I prepare for the worst? Response from Jamie Ianigro: Those commercials have lot of people thinking. Insurance prices have stopped dropping, and now is the time to lock in a great rate with the best coverage available. I always recommend meeting with your independent insurance agent to make sure you’re completely protected. The big thing I want to touch on from your question is preparing for the worst. Adding an umbrella policy (also known as a catastrophe policy) is easily the best way to get on track with that goal. An umbrella policy is really all about having the peace of mind to know that your family and assets are protected. There are many ways to end up with an umbrella claim, but the most common umbrella claim is an auto accident involving multiple injuries and very costly medical bills. The other common claim is an incident on your property that results in injury. Medical and legal costs can eat up the underlying limits of your homeowners, auto, boat or motorcycle policy pretty quickly. Your umbrella policy or your personal assets cover these costs when your normal policy limits are exhausted. Your independent insurance agent will be

able to help you settle on a level of coverage that you are comfortable with. Most people should be pretty comfortable with an umbrella limit of $1 million, but limits exceeding $10 million are available if you are looking for superior protection. I don’t want to say that umbrella claims are unpreventable, but they are the type of claims that happen no matter how prepared you are. There are some things that make a claim more likely, such as having a pool, living on a lake, having a young driver, or owning a boat/ATV/ snow mobile (basically anything fun). Let’s go through a claim scenario to show you how an umbrella works: Scenario #1: The insured’s son was driving his car on a short road trip with a friend, the claimant. The car drifted off the road and into a phone pole when the son fell asleep at the wheel. The passenger was hospitalized for over a month with broken bones and internal injuries. The hospitalization was followed by some time in a wheelchair, but he was able to walk again after six months of physical therapy. This claim cost $800,000 with $300,000 coming from the auto limits and $500,000 coming from the umbrella limits.

Time to hoard? – Hostess Brands has gone bankrupt again, and this time it might be hard for the company to find a new lease on life, writes David A. Kaplan. Investors say they're unwilling to throw more money at the company, which is struggling in the face of a long-running labor dispute and a series of management shakeups. Rolling in it – An 8-year-old British boy hit the jackpot by discovering a huge chunk of whale vomit while wandering along a beach recently. The chunk of waxy yellow rock is believed to be worth about $63,000, since whale vomit – marketed under the more salubrious name of "ambergris" – is prized by the perfume industry. -

Uh-oh – reported a 96 percent drop in second quarter earnings for 2012, and stands to lose money during the third quarter as well. Instead of cutting ties, however, investors seem to be impressed with the quarterly revenue growth. But be careful, with all the bad news, it probably is time to start selling. -

My opinion: This home is offered at $289,900. In my opinion this is priced well for the neighborhood of Centennial. This home was constructed at the top of the price point of 2006. The asking price is well below the purchasing price. This is a great buy for a very familyfriendly neighborhood. It is unfortunate but most homes built in 2006 are not worth what the owners paid for them. We are recovering but the gap is still very wide in Centennial.

Rooms: Four bedrooms, two full baths, two half baths, family room, dining room, kitchen, breakfast room, office and finished basement. Strengths: Large corner lot and great living space. A finished basement is a huge plus. The amenities in this neighborhood are wonderful for all age groups. Green space and well kept grounds. Close to shopping. Negatives: Lacks a three car garage. The yard needs more trees for privacy, but overall can be overcome. Deborah Minth is the Westfield Branch Manager for Carpenter Realtors. She lives in the city and is an expert on Westfield homes.

Buckle up your pup Commentary by John Mikesell The dangers of driving with your dog unrestrained are numerous and hardly hypothetical. In the United States alone, thousands of deaths of dogs, drivers and passengers are attributed to unrestrained dogs each year, in addition to what must be an unimaginable number of accidents with injuries and fender benders Even a low-speed crash may turn an unrestrained dog into a missile, possibly ejecting the animal out through the windshield or side window or injuring passenger or driver, resulting in further loss of control of the vehicle. The Automobile Association of America estimates that a 10-pound dog will exert approximately 500 pounds of pressure in a 50 mile per hour crash, and an 80 pound dog 2,400 pounds in a crash at 30 miles per hour. If a dog survives the impact, he will likely be injured and frightened, and flee the scene, risking being struck by another vehicle or becoming lost. A small dog on the lap of the driver in a crash is at risk of being crushed between the air bag and the driver. According to AAA, more than 30,000 accidents a year are caused by dogs riding in the front seat of a vehicle. As surprising

as this number is, it is only dog owners insured by AAA. dBuy a well-fitted harness/car safety belt product and use it every time your dog is in the car. Or put your dog in a well secured crate in the car. No small dogs on your lap while you drive. No exceptions! Make sure your dog always has ID tags with your current contact information on them. It’s best if there is more than one contact person/ number on the tag I will admit, that I do not always buckle Karma into a seat belt. I do however always leave her leash on when she is in the car. I have a hammock that fits between the front and back seat which keeps her from being thrown to the front seat. I always leave the leash on in case of an accident, so she wouldn’t be able to run away as easily. When Karma is in the car with me, I drive much slower and more carefully than when she is not. John Mikesell, owner of Izzy’s Place, A dog Bakery in Carmel, can be reached at

Bath time – For many pet owners, bathing the family dog has become more a hassle than a time to bond with Fido. In order to speed the process and ensure the best job done, try having treats handy to reward cooperation, and pick a convenient location ahead of time. Also, brush out his fur before wetting him to remove any troublesome tangles. - Quiet down – Training your puppy can be difficult, and the amount of barking that one can endure reaches a limit very quickly. To minimize barking, try to socialize your pup as much as possible by taking him to dog parks and allowing him to play with the other dogs. If the barking persists, taking him to a pet behavioral therapist to pinpoint the exact cause of the problem. - Leading the blind – A surprisingly large amount of people live with pets that have disabilities, not the least of which is blindness. Whether from old age or a birth defect, blind dogs deserve to be loved and cared for just as much as their seeing counterparts. To help your blind pup lead a comfortable and happy life, try not to move the furniture in your house around often, and remember to cushion sharp edges of tables and chairs. -

Eleven years ago Commentary by Sanford D. Horn Eleven years ago today, our world as we knew it changed interminably. Wherever Americans around the globe were located, they suddenly had a heightened sense of who they were as individuals, as countrymen and as proud patriots. Our only concern was whether our families and loved ones were safe – especially for those of us living within the sights and sounds of Ground Zero. Nothing else mattered – not politics, not sports – all seemed so insignificant, while our realities seemed so surreal. However, attending the first Orioles home game after the resumption of baseball on Sept. 21 proved otherwise, as halfway through the National Anthem I began to cry like a baby, and I know I wasn’t alone. Having grown up in north Jersey, with parents, sadly now both blessed memories, still living there, contact was vital. I was living in Northern Virginia, about 10 miles from the Pentagon, working as a local newspaper reporter on a deadline that fateful Tuesday. We were able to appraise each other as to our whereabouts and safety, but so many others we knew were not as fortunate. Once the beautiful, crisp morning air and blue skies were permeated by the evils of alQaeda in New York City, Arlington, Va. and Shanksville, Pa., all stories and deadlines were shelved in favor of the biggest breaking news

since the Japanese bombed Pearl Harbor on Dec. 7, 1941. The entire newspaper staff was dispatched to as many communities in Northern Virginia as possible to cover the horrific terrorist attacks of that morning. A new day had dawned. In fact, a new era had dawned – one that includes gropings at airports, stadiums and any other large, populated venue, and the surrendering of privacy rights and potentially freedoms in favor of political correctness because we don’t want to seem insensitive to other groups. Yet, while life has gone blithely on as we distance ourselves further and further from Sept.11, 2001, and the restrictions on our freedoms become more of an inconvenience and not a violation of the Constitution, it becomes easier for the government to dictate our lives. This we must fight as though our very existence as a free people depends upon it, because, well, it does. Never forget what happened that innocent Tuesday morning 11 years ago. Our collective national strength rose up from those ashes like that of the phoenix. The victims’ deaths shall not have been in vain.

SAY YES TO... Soaking: Your body temperature naturally lowers while sleeping, so the rapid cooling you experience climbing out of a steamy tub can bring on the sleepiness. Sweating: End your workout at least two hours before you want to turn in. Exercising too close to your bedtime raises your core body temperature just when you should be cooling down. Fluffing: A pillow too large or small can tweak spinal alignment, causing pain that disrupts sleep. If you're a side sleeper, choose a pillow that has a height equal to the distance between the base of your neck and the top of your shoulder. Back sleeper? Opt for one that lifts the head in line with the spine. Stomach sleepers: You're overtwisting your neck and back. Train yourself to move onto your sidebend one knee to the side and wedge a pillow underneath it.



GIVE THESE A PASS... Twitter: The glow from your laptop has an alerting affect which can postpone the release of hormones that induce sleep. Power down an hour or two before you climb into bed. Oversleeping: Hitting snooze on your days off confuses your body clock, so you'll be drowsier come Monday. Wake up within an hour of the same time, every day. Cocoa: We love the stuff, but it contains caffeine, and if you're sensitive to the upper, having it after noon can keep you up at night, so avoid cocoa, coffee and soft drinks in the afternoon.

We're excited to slip on a pair of matchstick pants to pair with our fresh crop of sweaters, silky boyfriend tops, and blazers. Cut close to the body and cropped right at the ankle, matchstick pants are universally flattering and add a slightly more formal touch to your everyday look. Designers like Jason Wu, Etro, and Isabel Marant showed a wide array of saturated colors and textured fabrics that are sure to add an unexpected element of sleek splendor to any Fall look. Style them with suede ankle boots or a pair of pointed-toe pumps for a cool spin on Fall dressing.

IntroducingThe All-New 2013

LEXUS ES SErIES Starts conversations. And then leaves you speechless.

Plant this fall for next spring Landscaping by Randy Sorrell It’s no longer a secret that fall is the favored time to plant most trees, shrubs and perennials. Perhaps the most compelling incentive behind fall installation is looking ahead to next summer. Recall how brutal recent summers’ intense heat and drought have been? There will likely be repeat performances, and your plants are considerably better equipped to handle those tortuous conditions when planted now instead of next spring! WHY? Soil conditions are very happy in the fall with cooler temperatures and more predictable moisture levels. Fresh root systems thrive in this environment and send out lots of new shoots to quickly establish themselves. That’s actually their fall habit, pushing out root growth to get established for the anticipated harsh winter conditions. In the spring and summer, energies are spent producing lush foliage, bright flowers and showy berries for birds to nibble on. Makes sense, doesn’t it? Also, there are fewer pests and diseases in the fall to attack your favorite flowering buddy. TRANSPLANTS & SPLITTING Fall is also the ideal time to transplant shrubs to another location where they may perform better. How’s your full-sun hydrangea looking? Mine are spent, and I plan on moving a few to a place with a little afternoon shade to minimize watering. Scorched holly with a southern or western exposure would appreciate the same favor. Splitting perennials is a great idea, too. Are

your lilies, coneflower and black-eyed Susans looking a little tired and not ambitiously reblooming like they should? Hosta a little bloated? They probably need split. Splitting controls growth, maximizes blooming and stimulates a fresh appearance next year. Ornamental grasses send their own “time to split” signal when they develop a donut hole in the grassy middle. Watch as spring landscape excitement gradually transfers to fall frenzy in the future.

Remodeling by Dave Decker

Choosing tile for your home once meant picking from among a handful of neutral-toned ceramic squares from a rack of options in a somewhat overwhelming and impersonal warehouse. The experience alone could be daunting and somewhat stressful for even the experienced home improvement consumer, as the choices are endless. Nowadays, not only are showrooms becoming more boutique-like and intimate, the most successful ones also offer design services to narrow down your wish list and pinpoint a style and look that is timeless. So where to begin? Amid all the possibilities out there, the biggest challenge might be choosing something you’ll continue to love for a decade or more. Porcelain tile is now made to look realistically like everything from aged wood and rough fieldstones to sleek Italian marble. Tiles made of glass, cork, mirror and even leather are taking the place of traditional ceramics. In all shapes and sizes, they are being used not just in kitchens and baths, but also gracing entryways, mudrooms and more. Trends are shifting toward using tile all the way up to the ceiling, rather than the more oldfashioned approach of doing partial-tile walls with a snub-nosed edge. Full-tile walls make the whole room more cohesive, and can also give the illusion the room is larger than it is. Also consider getting creative with grout. Simple white subway tiles are a classic choice that can

either be installed with thin, barely visible lines or thick lines in bold and darker “shades of grey” that can bring excitement to even the simplest kitchen design. No three-part book series required! Once you have decided on a look and feel that suits the existing style of your home, and is also one that you find brings you happiness every time you walk into the room, the next step is finding a qualified professional to help pull it all together. Although it is possible to do the removal and installation on your own, the dangers of demolition and tile cutting can be an issue, and even the highest quality tile will look unattractive if it’s been installed incorrectly. At the end of the day, there are ways to save on materials, fixtures and the like, but one place to splurge is to hire a reputable and responsible installation team. This ensures a beautiful and safe result for years to come. David Decker is president of the Affordable Companies, which include Affordable Kitchens and Bathrooms and now Affordable Custom Flooring.
