It is our position Hamilton County residents, should be aware of the damage caused to trees by the use of the herbicide, Imprelis. The DuPont-manufactured product, was recently approved by the EPA to treat broadleaf weeds and has been widely used on lawns, athletic fields, cemeteries, golf courses and sod farms. Touted as “environmentally- friendly”, Imprelis seems to be unfriendly to Norway Spruces, Eastern White Pines, and other trees with shallow root systems. DuPont began receiving reports of dying trees around Memorial Day of this year. Hamilton County has been hit hard hit by Imprelis usage. Visual symptoms of damage include browning, twisting and the curling of needles and leaves. The Indiana Chemist’s office has issued a stop- sale on Imprelis usage in Indiana and a recall is underway. Dupont has set up a hotline, 866-796-4783 to report damage. For more information about Imprelis, visit DuPont also initiated a product return and refund program in mid-August. Trees seem to be under siege in Indiana— drought, the Emerald Ash borer, and now Imprelis. Trees add so much to our environment, whether it’s aesthetics or economics or environmentallysafe, it behooves us to pay attention to their survival and care.

School buses

It is our position school buses must strictly adhere to posted speed limits. Far too often we see the familiar yellow vehicles careening through neighborhoods at excessive speeds, as measured by both the law and reasonable standards of safety. Even in school zones, the buses are frequently the primary violators of the speed limits. School bus safety concerns increase as daylight slips away making morning routes take place before the sun rises. Young children hurrying to the bus stop might not be seen as easily, and there is less time to react if there is an obstacle in the way. We understand the bus drivers are on a tight schedule to gather their riders and get them to school on time. Traffic concerns and lagging children may cause even more delays. If these are the sole reasons for their excessive speed, then either more time has to be built into the schedules or the schools must make provisions for an occasional late bus. But we cannot allow the safety of our children – both on foot and already on board – and our fellow commuters to be jeopardized by bus drivers who ignore the rules.

Every week, we will print a portion of the U.S. Constitution, followed by a portion of the Indiana Constitution. We encourage you to benchmark government policies against these bedrock documents. Today: the Indiana Constitution. ARTICLE 12. Militia Section 4. Conscientious objectors No person, conscientiously opposed to bearing arms, shall be compelled to do so in the militia.

The list may be better unchecked COMMENTARY By Terry Anker What was the best year of “Saturday Night Live?” Over its three-decade run, this late-night comedy television show has become a cultural touchstone with each ensuing group claiming memorable catchphrases and skits at the heart of a shared self-definition. Such as the question of whether “The Tonight Show” belongs to Carson or Leno, these public figures have framed our shared community. Ultimately these common memories are devices used to enhance communication with our peers. Recently, I made reference to a Dana Carvey moment on “SNL.” Carvey’s character, upon his death, found the gate to heaven with the angel of God. Similar to a fine hotel’s busboy, the angel outlined each of the amenities one could expect as a new resident of heaven. “The buffet is open 24 hours. The pool is always warm and filled with beautiful girls. Moreover, in heaven we have omnipotence – the answer to the unanswered questions of

human life.” Since that day years ago, I have maintained a list of questions to ask, should I be so lucky as to find myself similarly disposed. Was there a second shooter? Are ghosts real? Who stole my favorite shirt in college? What is the most disturbing thing I’ve ever eaten without my knowledge? I wonder if it is better not to know. But then again, how could the afterlife be complete without knowing the secret ingredient of the seven herbs and spices? Do we all keep lists of things for which we seek answers? And if we do, do we really expect those questions to ever find resolution? Or is our interest only a part of our natural curiosity as humans? Could it be the pursuit of responses is more important than the answers?

Blurring the lines of nanny and mom COMMENTARY By Danielle Wilson I finally appreciate why rich people have nannies and man-servants. My mom was in town during the weekend, and it was magical. We are currently in negotiations to retain her services as a full-time au pair, and it’s not going well. She has visited us before, but this is the first time she has visited when my kids are in school, sports and theater. Plus Doo and I are going gray by the minute over work-related issues. Technically, red heads do not “go gray,” but “white,” like Santa Claus and Queen Elizabeth I. Gingers may be mutants, but we’re royal mutants. Mom arrived at the house on Friday before the school bus, which meant my children were not latch-key orphans for once. And when I called a bit later to check in, she asked what I needed from the grocery. No one has ever asked me that question. Confounded, I mumbled something like “List … frig … flarjkwee.” After literally crashing my minivan into the side of the garage and walking in the door, the contents of my grocery list were miraculously sitting on the counter. I’m not kidding about the car, but that’ll be in my next article, titled “You Might Be Going Senile If ”

This nanny thing was turning out great. She bought us Chinese take-out and did 23 loads of laundry; she took the kids to an early morning soccer game so Doo and I could sleep. She made (fighting back tears, here) the (sniffle, gulp) beds (full-blown weeping). I think the best part about having a Mama Poppins comes down to simple math. We had three adults instead of two managing four kids. Doo spent the entirety of Saturday rebuilding something involving computers, which normally would have driven me straight to black widow mode; however, everything was cool because my mom was there to play dodgeball and jump-stick with the kids while I caught up on neglected domestic tasks. No Child Left Behind, see? So I totally get why the wealthy hire nannies. And now I want one too. Guilt wreaks havoc with the consciences of working parents, and nannies quiet the crazy. Now, if I can only convince Mom this is the life for her! Peace out.

Grand Park adds Indiana Soccer as a major anchor By Lindsay Eckert Mayor Andy Cook announced last Thursday the Indiana Soccer Association will relocate to Westfield’s Grand Park as another major anchor for the Grand Park Sports Campus. He said the addition is expected to bring half a million visitors into Westfield each year. Cook said Indiana Soccer will boost Westfield’s presence in the world of sports, and it will be a major boost to Westfield’s economy. Grand Park is expected to produce 2,300 jobs in its first three years of business. According to Cook, Grand Park will generate millions of dollars annually through tourism and events: $3.5 million in surrounding area shopping; $4.8 million in meals purchased; $2.2 million in hotel revenue. “Grand Park is unique to the state; it compares quite large in scope and increases employment,” Cook said. “It’s improving the quality of life and diversifying the city’s tax base, and that comes first.” The 350-acre spread for the sports complex will have 32 competitive fields ranging from soccer and baseball to field hockey and lacrosse. Other organizations already claiming their turf are the Lids League team, Indiana Bulls, Westfield Youth Sports and Westfield Youth Soccer. Construction for the complex will begin Nov.1. The sports fields are scheduled to be partly open for play by late 2012 and fully functional by

2013. Indiana Soccer, an organization with more than 85,000 members, is expected to relocate from Lawrence in 2012. The partnership allows the organization to take on a managing role for the complex. Indiana Soccer will be responsible for scheduling clubs on the fields and a portion of revenue on those fields Cook said Indiana Soccer expects to play host to approximately 1,800 teams annually, bringing in more than 300,000 players and spectators to the park. “The partnership with Indiana Soccer adds a level of credibility to our project, increasing the economic-development potential,” Cook said. Indiana Soccer President Murray Clark said Grand Park is setting the bar high for competitive sports complexes. “I’ve seen a lot of complexes, a lot of gold standard complexes. Grand Park will be the new gold standard for sports facilities,” Clark said. “We’ve done a lot of research, we’re not coming to the table lightly and to say we’re impressed is an understatement.” Clark said Indiana Soccer’s strong reputation and Grand Park are a perfect fit for success in boosting tourism and the local economy. “We are the voice of soccer in the state; we’re not just bringing a state of soccer players into this facility, we’re bringing the entire U.S.,” Clark said. “We’re bringing more than 1 million players to this endeavor through tournaments.”

Organization embraces local library By Lindsay Eckert Westfield Washington Public Library is the center for literary works in Westfield. A community center bringing people together through the library’s book clubs and Summer Reading Program, entertaining children with weekly story times and inspiring teenagers to develop active roles through the Teen Advisory Committee. Although the programs unite the library with its community, it’s the Friends of Westfield Library who make the programs happen, a nonprofit organization and the driving force behind the library’s hefty events calendar. The 30-year-old organization is comprised of Westfield citizens who work selflessly to plan events and raise money for the library. Friends of Westfield offer hospitality to program participants as well as purchase equipment to increase the library’s efficiency to better serve residents, such as DVD cleaners and computer software. Sheryl Sollars, director of Westfield Washington Library, said the Friends of Westfield purchase summer reading incentives for dedicated readers who stay on-task all season and help the

library purchase snacks for Teen Movie Night and other library activities. “Last year they helped implement our new database and we’re so thankful for them,” Sollars said. “Our revenues went down and we’ve been relying on them more, and more and they are always supportive. We don’t know what we’d do without them.” Friends of Westfield is planning upcoming annual events to continue their quest of supporting the library. Members will be volunteering at the annual book sale that begins Saturday and runs through Oct. 16. Another event backed by Friends of Westfield is the annual Craft Bazaar at the library Oct. 16. Current Publishing is a proud media sponsor for the event. In addition to being a keystone in the library’s fundraising, Sollars said Friends of Westfield is also a voice for the library and represent the library’s message in the city. “The library is a comfort to the community, a social place to gather, a community center. It’s not just about checking out books, we’re much more than that. Friends of Westfield members are in the community spreading that message.”

» Annual craft bazaar – The Friends of the Westfield Library is holding its eighth-annual craft bazaar and silent auction at the library Oct. 16, from 1 to 5 p.m. Current Publishing is a proud sponsor for the event, which provides shoppers with the opportunity to purchase handmade items. Free refreshments are also available. Plan to join us for a fun day of shopping and bidding to support your local library.

Proposed solicitation ban could impact nonprofits By Lindsay Eckert A city-wide ordinance was proposed last week to prevent any and all solicitors from going door to door to sell products. The ordinance was introduced by Councilman Robert Stokes to the Westfield Community Association Network, an organization created by Mayor Andy Cook for neighborhood associations to discuss concerns in a public forum with city representatives. “The forum is a way to discuss ideas long before they reach the council and the members’ concerns are a valid response,” Cook said. “The council is spearheading the ordinance and wanted to bring the idea forward to the members.” The city requires all solicitors to be registered, and according to an official Westfield survey many neighborhoods have a no-soliciting policy in place for businesses selling door to door. Chris Bluto, a Homeowners Association member, said a city-enforced ban is not the answer. “Citizens don’t want this decision made for them, it shouldn’t be regulated by the city,” Bluto said. “If I don’t want a solicitor’s business or product then I should be the one to tell them I’m not interested.” Bluto said the proposed ordinance may seem like a simple solution, but he said it would cre-


ate a struggle for community organizations. “To have a blanket-type ordinance against all solicitors is taking the easy way out,” Bluto said. “How’s little Jimmy going to sell popcorn for his Boy Scouts troop or how is Susie going to raise money for the Girl Scouts by selling cookies?” According to an official city survey taken in January, 56 percent of 794 Westfield residents said their neighborhoods already have a no-soliciting policy. The survey also showed 90 percent of respondents don’t want solicitors at their doors; 78 percent said they want nonprofit organizations included in the ban. Jim Hester, a Boy Scouts troop leader, said he’s concerned about a ban being the next step after surveying 3 percent of Westfield residents. According to Hester, Westfield Boy Scouts sold approximately $135,000 in popcorn and approximately $45,000 in commissions to fund scouting programs in Westfield. “I would venture to guess that more than 794 homes across Westfield bought popcorn from Boy Scouts selling door to door during our fall food drives for Amanda Strong and Open Doors,” Hester said. “Hundreds of homes leave food by their mailbox for Boy Scouts to collect. I accept this isn’t an official survey; however, I believe this is a barometer of how many households in our community support these programs through solicitation.”

New program teaches Westfield High School students how to run a news show By Lindsay Eckert


estfield High School announcements have a facelift and an all-new attitude. Students aren’t just informing their classmates, they’re interacting with them through the school’s multimedia newscasts. RockTV was created as part of the school’s mass media class, but this year RockTV goes outside the walls of the classroom and inside the imagination of the students creating and viewing the programs. RockTV Director John Oestreich, a former Westfield economics teacher, is the school’s mass media teacher and heading up the program for the first time this year. He said he’s helping students lead the way as they move the program in a new direction. “I’m not here to control the process, when the kids take ownership for their ideas that’s when things really get going,” Oestreich said. “They come up with an idea they’re excited about and they work hard to make it happen, that’s when things really get going.” Students collaborate during their bonus period as well as before and after school. Students fill all roles in the television studio whether they are anchoring newscasts or special segments, in the producer booth writing news script or behind the camera. The news team produces Seniors Ahren Alexander and Rebecca Pollard newscasts, podcasts and special writing scripts for their segments segments Monday through Friday 4 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. and they is finished with school and production the stucome in at 7 a.m., a half hour before classes to dents can sometimes put in a 12-hour day. begin producing. “We’ve been here working past 7 some nights Producer and Anchor Rebecca Pollard said and we’ve been in at 6 a.m., before school,” the process of getting the new program off the ground requires long hours by the time the group Pollard, who also plays for the school’s lacrosse

club, said. Pollard said working together to produce a show the entire news group is proud of makes the hours go quickly and the work entertaining. “We love it, it’s so fun and the people in our group are hilarious,” Pollard said. “It’s exciting to know we’re making the announcements better and something people enjoy, and I get to be part of that.” Tyler Andrzejewski, a producer and Westfield senior, also operates the camera and writes scripts. He said the newscasts’ new interactive style is a reflection of how the group works together. “There are deadlines, but we have a lot of fun between takes and we get the show done,” Andrzejewski said. “Nobody is taking charge of each other, we’re all working together. It’s interactive.” Senior Arlo Paulson is the creator and pro-

Current in Westfield

ducer of “This Week in Geek,” a tech-savvy segment reviewing the latest video games and computer programs. Paulson creates short videos and Web site information as part of his segment. He said the students’ special reports make the announcements unique and a teaching tool for a career he’s pursuing. “The segments enhance the news program, I like working on computers and providing information to students in an interesting way,” Paulson said. “I’m learning more about computer software too, which is a side benefit.” Sports reporter Ryan Monson, who records all Westfield games, interviews coaches and creates highlight reels for games ranging from high school to college sports, said the program gives him a chance to improve his sports reporting and bring multimedia experience to a career in sports radio. “I have my own podcast and Facebook group and I get to see the results of my work on TV; it helps me see how I can improve my next segment,” Monson said. “It gives me a chance to express my passion for sports in front of the entire student body.” Oestreich, also an assistant Westfield baseball coach, said the switch from teaching economics to mass media is different in every way from grading to planning for class. “I grade by using youtube now. Students post their segments on their youtube accounts and I put in a grade. It’s a lot different than grading numbers,” Oestrich said. “ It’s exciting and entertaining, sometimes I have to share the videos with my wife because they’re so funny and the kids are talented, I’m proud of their accomplishments.” Oestrich said the most important thing about the newscasts is they change every day and students are constantly working to bring awareness to current events in an appealing way for their peers. “The show is entertaining, but it’s not a variety show. It has a specific purpose to inform teens; however, we do provide an entertainment element to keep kids plugged in. The students’ creativity makes that balance happen,” Oestrich said.

Voting by absentees to begin Monday By Robert Herrington Absentee and early voting for the 2011 general election will begin Monday and if you are not yet registered to vote time is running out. Voter registration will end next Tuesday. Those who are not registered can do so online at www. (if they have a driver’s license) or can fill out a form in person in the lower level of the Hamilton County Judicial Center, 1 Hamilton County Square in Noblesville. Those who are registered to vote and would like a mailed ballot have until Oct. 31 to apply for one. Kathy Richardson, Hamilton County elections administrator, said there are approximately 176,105 registered voters in Hamilton County. County residents cast a total of 24,173 ballots (14.62 percent) in May – down around 3 percent from the 2007 primary election which saw 17.3 percent of registered voters cast ballots. During the last non-presidential, municipality general election in 2007 the turnout was 19.8 percent. “Traditionally, municipality election turnout is lower anyways,” said Richardson. “Having just one of the races up on the ballot may have an effect on turnout as well.” Those who decide to not cast their vote because of a limited ballot will miss out. “Local officials affect you more on a day-today basis, even more than the president,” said Richardson. “It’s too bad more people don’t par-

ticipate in local elections.” Cicero and Carmel will not hold an election this November. Richardson said by not holding an election the areas are saving money. Richardson said direct costs for municipalities having an election include poll workers, janitors, supply kits, rent, meals, rent, postage for absentee ballots and poll lists – essentially anything that can be directly assessed to them is. “Everything else is pulled together and prorated,” she said. Items grouped together and pro-rated include fees for ballot counters, machine setup, MicroVote usage, legal advertising, election board and canvas board. Richardson said the county pays a fourth of the bill and the remaining threefourths are divided amongst the municipalities. Richardson said many believe it should be based on population, but in actuality the cost is based on voting percentage. “Fishers has more people but if it has less of a turnout than Noblesville, Noblesville picks up a larger chunk,” she explained. Richardson said Carmel had 50 percent of the total county turnout in May’s primary election and thus paid 50 percent of the remaining amount – approximately $56,640. Other costs passed onto Hamilton County townships from this year’s primary election were: Fishers, $32,519; Noblesville, $25,470; Westfield, $16,429; and Sheridan, $3,021.


“Only in municipal elections do they have to pay this,” Richardson said. Westfield has two contested races – mayor and City Council District 3. Incumbent Andy Cook (Republican) faces three opponents in the mayoral race including Democrat M. Kurtis Maddox, Libertarian Mike Waite and Independent Todd Hoard. Independent José Beyer is looking to take the council seat away from Republican Bob Smith. All city of Westfield registered voters will cast ballots for the mayoral race. Only voters in the precincts of East Westfield 1 and 2, and West Westfield 1 and 2 will vote for Westfield City Council District 3. Richardson said the following Westfield candidates – all Republicans – are unopposed and have won their election because no other candidates filed for the General Election. Their names will not be listed on the ballot: Clerk-Treasurer – Cindy Gossard, R Council At-Large – Jim Ake and Cindy L. Spoljaric Council District 1 – Robert Stokes Council District 2 – Steven K. Hoover Council District 4 – John Dippel Council District 5 – Robert L. (Bob) Horkay For more information about voter registration, call 776-9632.

Makes me want to lie down and die GRAMMAR GURU By Brandie Bohney Have you ever heard people say things are so bad that they just want to lay down and die? That phrase makes me want to ask what those other people feel when they need to put down before their untimely end. Lay and lie give so many people problems, it’s nearly ludicrous. I’m not talking about lying as in telling someone something you know isn’t true or lie as in a false statement. Rather, I’m referring to lay and lie as verbs meaning to prostrate oneself or to put something down. Here’s the thing: lay and lie are different words. But the past tense of lie is lay, which is tremendously confusing. So I get it when people mess it up. I don’t excuse it, but I get it. Lie does not take an object: • I’m going to lie down. • I lay down yesterday. • I have lain here for hours. Lay, on the other hand, always takes an object: • Please lay the papers on the desk. • He laid the papers there yesterday. • He has laid papers there every day for a year. For many people, the past tense of lie is counterintuitive. It took me about a year of thinking about it before I spoke or wrote to consistently get it correct. And I still second-guess myself once in a while. The truth is, so many people use lay in place of lie that the correct use sounds wrong to most people.


N o b l e s v i l l e / C a r m e l / We s t fi e l d / F i s h e r s


Does that make it okay to make the mistake? No Understandable? Yes. But still not acceptable. When you’re writing, grammar-check will often flag the incorrect usage, but when you’re speaking, you don’t have that option. Instead, it’s wise to make a concerted effort to retrain your brain to hear the correct version as natural instead of foreign. Then, your grammar won’t make anyone want to lie down and die.

DISPATCHES » Pumpkin patch festival – RE/MAX Legends Group will hold its annual Pumpkin Patch Festival Staurday from noon to 3 p.m. The event is hosted by Riley Hospital for Children at IU Health North. The festival is open to the public with free admission and parking available. » Library closing – The Westfield Washington Public Library will be closed next Monday for in-house staff training. » Fireside Tales – In partnership with the City of Westfield Dept. of Parks and Recreation, Westfield Washington Public Library is presenting Fireside Tales Oct. 12 at 6:30 p.m., at Simon Moon Park’s Council Circle Fire Pit, 171st Street. Bring your pillows, blankets and snuggle up tight as we learn about hibernation. » Taste of Westfield luncheon –The annual luncheon is inviting local restaurants to participate in the event and promote their favorite dishes Oct. 20 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at East Street Studios, Westfield. The event is free for Chamber members. Participants who are not Chamber members will pay a $50 fee

to have a showcase table at the event. » Breakfast with beer? – With flavors ranging from coffee to maple syrup, the right brew can be as perfect a breakfast accompaniment as O.J. Try Left Hand Milk Stout with cereal or granola. Beer yeast can’t digest lactose, or milk sugar, so it remains unfermented in milk stouts like this one, giving it a sweet, Hershey-bar tang, like the milky dregs of chocolate cereal. This is how creamy coffee should taste (but never quite does): a bitter edge polished silky smooth. 6.0 percent ABV. » Holiday travel more expensive – Flying over the holidays is going to cost more this year. And the longer you wait to book, the pricier it’s likely to get. The average domestic airfare for the weeks of Thanksgiving and Christmas is $383, 4 percent higher than last year, according to Expedia. As airlines fly fewer routes and planes to cut costs, there are fewer seats available. Flights are fuller than ever, and airlines can charge more. -Associated Press

In 15th century Europe, the nobility often spoke in Latin, to hide their conversations from the less educated. Similarly, today’s “preppy” tailgaters, especially in the Ivy League, are known use nautical flags to represent their team in a way that only sail-boaters would understand. For example, a flag with white and red vertical halves represents an H (Harvard). A Y flag (Yale) is yellow with five

slanted red stripes. Locally an I is a yellow flag with a black dot and a U is a flag with four quarters (squares) of red and white on the left and white and red on the right. The letter P is a blue flag with a white square centered. Why not get creative at your next tailgate and run some nautical flags up your pole, or should I say halyard?

Salon 01 estheticians are trained to help both men and women find the perfect skincare products and regimen. First they will diagnose your skin type, and whether you have oily, dry, sensitive or combination skin, they are trained to find the best combination of products to help maintain younger, healthier looking skin.

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.

Covered porch creates new outdoor living space COMMENTARY By Larry Greene Original home: The seven-year-old home is located in the Centennial Subdivision in Westfield. The current homeowners have lived there for five years. Motivation for creating a new outdoor living space: According to the homeowner, “I had a back porch as I was growing up. Plus, I have lost three tables and an umbrella in the last five years from the wind.” Porch details: The new porch is supported with concrete piers which extend below the frost line. The new patio surface is brushed concrete with an arched step extending from the patio door and an area for grilling. The new porch finishes include painted cedar posts and wrapped beams. The porch is trimmed with cedar to match the new column trim. The beadboard porch ceiling is vaulted throughout to create a more open feeling. Finally, a new ceiling fan was installed from the center ridge beam. Favorite features: The homeowner commented, “I work from home and it is so nice to go outside during the day and not bake from

Before the sun. Our family can actually talk and relax in the new porch now. We have used it a lot already and it’s only been a few weeks since completion.” According to the homeowners, “We are planning on having our neighbors over soon to show off our new porch. They have all been watching with envy as the project progressed.” Larry Greene is the president of Case Design/Remodeling, a fullservice design/build firm serving Hamilton County. Contact him at

Some companies, to encourage innovation, tolerate failures and even reward employees for them

in some cases. Employers use a variety of tactics to foster innovation. Grey New York, for example, blocks off a “no meeting zone” each week to allow employees sustained time for work on creative projects. Some add game or nap rooms, expansive art-filled atriums, hiking trails or private meditation rooms with music and adjustable lighting.

Five ways to spoil a meeting COMMENTARY By David Cain Nothing blows the potential to have a great meeting like the following five things. Meetings, meetings, meetings, so much time, so much potential, so often wasted. Avoid these top five spoilers and enjoy better get-togethers with happier attendees. Start late. “Hey, sorry I’m late, let me just grab some coffee and hit the restroom and I’ll be right there.” That’s nice, show up a few minutes late and then take your time getting started. Everyone loves it when people impose their own life on you. If you want to start your meeting at 9:15, set it for 9:15. Be unprepared. No forethought or advance preparation is the rain on your meeting day. Whether you were invited to the meeting or originated it, you should always be prepared. Nothing looks more amateur than showing up to a meeting with nothing but a pen and paper eager to learn. Be prepared and lead the way to better outcomes. Interrupt. After all, everyone showed up to hear you talk. Just keep blurting out anything that runs through the scrolling LED in your head and you’ll look like a star. It’s expected to have ideas, but consider listening more than you talk. Go freestyle. Agenda-free meetings with no real thought to what you want to accomplish

are great spoilers. Just get in a room, start with small talk and see where it goes. Want to kickstart your effectiveness? Go into every meeting and start with a list of what the group will accomplish in that meeting and how much time you all agree to commit. Go around the room and ask, “What do you want to accomplish to make this meeting a great use of your time?” Everyone agrees and everyone is working toward the same goals. Run over. Well, you started late, why not run over on time too? It just makes good sense. Want to be sure you run over? Invite too many people. And, use every bit of time allotted even if you finish early is just as annoying. It’s okay to get things done faster. Business requires meetings. For that matter, all aspects of life require discussions of some sort, so why not work to make all that time more productive and effective? If you do, you’ll eventually eliminate meetings. If you are always prepared and know everyone’s goals for the encounter, you’ll find some of the meetings just go away.

DISPATCHES » Couch potato workout – Leg-up couch crunches: Lie on your back on a couch with your knees bent, your feet up on one end, and your hands behind your head. Pressing your lower back into the couch, slowly lift your head, shoulders, and upper back off the couch. Hold, then slowly lower. (If your couch is too soft, you may need to do this exercise on the floor.) Cardio finish: Do knee lifts. While standing, alternate bringing your right elbow down to meet your left knee, and vice versa. » Do you have less energy? – If so, you may need some more vitamin B12. This nutrient helps regulate your metabolism and energy production and is key to maintaining a healthy brain and nervous system. Chewing a lot of antacids to relieve heartburn can also lead to B12 deficiency, because antacids interfere with B12 absorption. Food fix: Have two servings of nonfat dairy foods and 3 to 4 ounces of lean protein daily. Good sources of B12 include seafood such as fish, clams, oysters, and mussels, as well as lean beef and pork, chicken, and fortified cereal.

» Whiten teeth naturally? – If you want to avoid the pain and the cost of overthe-counter whiteners, you can try a few different at-home treatments. If you make a paste from lemon juice and salt, you can use this as whitening gel. This can be rubbed on the teeth to slowly wear down the dull color. To make your teeth shinier, you can rub your teeth with the inner white part of an orange peel. This gives discolored teeth a bright shine. This is good to use in combination with other home-whitening products. » IU North to turn pink – Indiana University Health North Hospital will turn its campus pink this month to raise funds for a local breast cancer organization during Breast Cancer Awareness Month. The public can make online donations that will allow pink solar lights to be placed on IU Health North Hospital grounds in recognition of those whose lives have been touched by breast cancer. Lights are $5 each and can be dedicated to honor, remember, or thank a friend or family member. Pink solar lights can be dedicated online at

While the rest of the Indianapolis area will be stuck inside and constrained by the various ice and snow storms coming this winter, we’ll be living it up at The Stratford!

At The Stratford we don’t have to go outside to get to our grand dining room for a delicious, hot meal. We don’t have to drive anywhere to pick out a good read from our library. No one has to hit the sidewalk to travel to the wellness center for some exercise (ours is just down the hall in the clubhouse). We don’t even have to clean up after our parties because the amazing staff here does it for us. In short, while the rest of the area is digging out—we‘ll be living it up! This could be you this winter, so call 317-733-9560 now and ask our Lifestyle Advisors about the benefits of living at The Stratford. By the first snow of this year—you’ll be glad you did!

DISPATCHES » New book for pet owners – Best-selling author and animal advocateJon Katz has been writing about dogs for over a decade. Katz wrote his latest, “Going Home: Finding Peace When Pets Die,” which came out last week, to provide guidance, support and advice for people on how to handle the loss of a pet. » Why do dogs eat grass? – As omnivores, dogs benefit from eating vegetables or fruits. Even coyotes and wolves eat vegetable matter found in the stomach of prey, as well as roots, grasses and fruit. Dogs often beg for and enjoy snacks of raw vegetables like lettuce, green beans and carrots. Most pet dogs occasionally eat grass, which may provide vitamins the dog craves, or it may simply like the taste. Dogs also eat grass to stimulate vomiting when they feel ill.

Dealing with your dog’s stress PETS By John Mikesell Plenty of pets have anxiety issues, and many pet parents don’t know how to handle them. Pet owners spend $1 billion a year addressing fear and anxiety issues in their dogs, hoping something will perk their ears back up. Forty-one percent of dog owners participating in a survey by GMI Inc. said they had at least one dog with a history of anxiety. The online survey involved more than 1,000 households. Twenty-nine percent of dogs in the survey population suffered from some form of anxiety or fear. The most common triggers were separation anxiety and noises, such as thunderstorms or fireworks. Half of the survey respondents said they take action to address anxiety issues in their dogs, but 71 percent don’t feel it is necessary. Respondents also said a solution would be too expensive. Respondents who address their dog’s anxiety rely on medications, training and helping their dog avoid stressful circumstances. “We’ve worked with thousands of dogs over the past two years, so we knew anxiety problems in dogs are very common but we

were incredibly surprised by the results of this data,” said Phil Blizzard, founder of Thunder Shirt, which commissioned the survey. “As our survey shows, millions of dogs are suffering from, and not being adequately treated for, fear of thunder, separation and travel anxiety and a whole host of other anxiety and fear issues,” Blizzard said. “It is our hope that by highlighting the prevalence of these issues, we’re able to alleviate anxiety for more dogs and their owners in the future.” By extrapolating its survey results to data from 2009-2010 APPA National Pet Owners Survey by the American Pet Products Association. Thunder Shirt estimates nearly 23 million dogs currently suffer or have suffered some from sort of anxiety issues. Evidence suggests dog owners spend an average of $1 billion per year; including more than $240 million attributable to property damage caused by anxious animals.
