Westfield Utilities transfer deal made By Robert Herrington • robert@youarecurrent.com

Officials have reached an agreement for the transfer of Westfield Utilities to Citizens Energy Group. The $91 million deal will pay off Westfield energy Utilities’ $45 million debt and provide the city with $40 million for infrastructure and future projects. “The transfer of Westfield Utilities to Citizens will secure our vital water resources with a trusted utility operator, while providing our community funding for infrastructure improvements and debt repayment. This milestone agreement is recognition that this transaction will bring extraordinary value to utility customers and taxpayers,” stated Mayor Andy Cook. Westfield Chief of Staff Todd Burtron said the Indiana Office of Utility Consumer Counselor also agreed to the deal, which was filed on Oct. 16. Burtron described the OUCC as an “automatic intervener” that will “protect rate payers and the $91 million agreement.” Burtron “They align the asset purchase agreement – put the stake in the ground for future rate adjustments,” he said. “Their life blood is to protect the tax payer.” Major provisions of the agreement include Indiana Utility Regulatory Commission approval of the transfers as in the public interest; the current schedule of rate adjustments adopted by the Westfield City Council through 2016 would be retained; and rate increases after 2016 would require approval through the IURC process, which includes public input. “The OUCC wanted all these changes,” Burtron said. Another major difference in the original agreement was the ownership of cell phone towers on water towers. Burtron said the city receives $120,000 annually for the rental space. While the agreement allowed Westfield to retain the fee, Citizens was told that the revenue would be taxed to them since it was connected to their property. “Rate payers will feel the benefit of future revenues,” Burtron said. On Sept. 24, 2012, Cook and Citizens announced the plan to transfer the community’s water and wastewater utilities to Citizens for a purchase price of $91 million. After a public input process that included four town hall meetings, the Westfield City

Council approved the utility transfer by a 6-1 vote on Nov. 5, 2012. The proposed transfer was filed with the IURC on Nov. 20, 2012. “We are pleased that a resolution was able to be reached among the parties on a series of very complicated issues that will result in the transfer of Westfield’s assets,” stated Indiana Utility Consumer Counselor David Stippler. “The City of Westfield has been an excellent steward of its utility assets, which made our office’s analysis in this case much easier to conduct and complete.” The transfer will provide additional revenue for the city. Citizens Westfield will pay approximately $2 million per year in property taxes that can be used for schools and other budgetary needs. Westfield Utilities does not pay property taxes. “We look forward to creating Citizens Westfield, an efficient gas, water and wastewater utility that continues to deliver an outstanding customer experience, as we make investments to ensure safety, reliability and water supply necessary for the community’s growth,” stated Citizens President Carey Lykins. Officials said benefits of the utility transfer include water supply security, greater efficiency, a smooth transition for customers and no job losses as Citizens has offered positions to current Westfield Utilities employees. Burtron said the agreement now goes before the IURC on Oct. 31 and Citizens will begin working on bond payments mid to late November. Officials said Westfield Utilities customers will see few changes during the first year of the transfer.

It’s been a down year for animation but a hot time for horror, with “The Conjuring” one of the latest movies to scare up a lot of cash at the box office. Strangely, the film received an “R” rating from the MPAA, despite having no cursing and little gore. Read more at currentnightandday.com.

DISPATCHES Quilt show – The Quilter’s Guild of Indianapolis will have a biennial Quilt Show “All Around Town” from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Oct. 25 and 26 at Westfield Middle School, 345 W. Hoover St. More than 350 quilts from traditional to contemporary will be on display along with quilt appraisals, vendors, lectures, small quilt auction and demonstrations. Admission is $8. For more information, visit www.quiltguildindy.net. Buyer beware – The Hamilton County Sheriff’s Office believes there may be multiple crews of driveway paving scammers working in the central Indiana and Hamilton County area. These individuals seem to target the elderly and people who live in the rural areas of the county. Investigators say a person representing the paving company will contact the homeowner and tell them they are working on a job nearby and have leftover materials. After the job is half done the paving crew will increase the price of the job or say they need more money to finish. In the days after the crew has done their work the homeowner will discover the poor quality of workmanship and shoddy materials the paving company used. In Hamilton County, the recent suspects were not using hot asphalt but cold asphalt grindings, called millings, from the top surface of a roadway. Construction update – On Oct. 14 INDOT contractor Rieth-Riley Construction began to temporarily widen the pavement on U.S. 31 near Ind. 32. Rieth-Riley will restrict the right lane of northbound U.S. 31 between 169th and 196th streets during the overnight operations, which are expected to continue – weather permitting – each night from 9 p.m. until 6 a.m. through the end of October. Rieth-Riley is beginning off-road work and temporary pavement widening along this section of U.S. 31 before shifting southbound traffic to share the northbound side of the highway next spring. Two lanes of traffic will remain open in each direction. For more information, visit www.INDOT.IN.gov.

Surrounded by his family, Local 4416 President Tony Murray holds the $12,000 check presented by Glen Schwartz as he addresses the crowd on Oct. 13. (Submitted photo.)

Campaign begins with $12k donation By Robert Herrington • robert@youarecurrent.com The same day the Hamilton County fire departments gathered to kick off a campaign to raise money to build the Hamilton memorial County Fallen Firefighters Memorial, the Schwartz family contributed to the cause. On Oct. 13. Glen Schwartz and his family donated $12,000 toward the $275,000 goal to build the memorial. The memorial will be located behind the Hamilton County Judicial Center, overlooking the White River in historic downtown Noblesville. Hamilton County Councilor Steve Schwartz, Glen’s son, has been with the Riverwalk Committee for the entire journey and is excited to see the project reach this phase. “It will enhance Riverwalk,” he said. “It will make it more of a destination than it already is.” Schwartz said the construction of the memorial will be done in conjunction with phase III of the Riverwalk. “It will be in there in a temporary basis until Riverwalk is completed,” Schwartz said. Local 4416 President Tony Murray said the park-like setting of the memorial is designed by Hittle Landscaping and includes two key items: a piece of metal beam from the World Trade Center in New York City and a sculpture of a grieving firefighter by Arizona sculptor Nicholas Wilson. “We want to create and include a memorial for 9/11. It’s such a profound event in our country’s

history. We pause each year to remember,” Murray said. “We would like to hold a ceremony on Sept. 11, 2014. It’s somewhat unique to Indiana. There are a few 9/11 memorials around and state memorials.” Murray said the statue will include three bronze helmets to represent the three Hamilton County firefighters who have died in the line of duty. In the event that another emergency worker dies tragically, another helmet will be placed. Those firefighters who have died in the line of duty include: Noblesville Firefighter Byron J. Galbreath was electrocuted and died from his injuries while working at a fire in a junk yard at Sixth and Preston streets in Noblesville on Aug. 15, 1951. Carmel Assistant Fire Chief Cyrus Clark died from injuries suffered while responding with another firefighter aboard an apparatus. A civilian driver pulled his vehicle into the path of the vehicle, and when Clark swerved to avoid contact with the vehicle, he struck a tree. Both men were ejected, and the apparatus landed on top of them on Dec. 3, 1960. Fishers Assistant Fire Chief Raymond E. Moulder died from injuries he suffered from a building collapse. Moulder was working at the scene of a multialarm fire that consumed several buildings in the downtown business district of Noblesville, Sixth and Conner streets. The building, Goeke automobile dealership, suddenly collapsed trapping Moulder on Oct. 13, 1967.

Chamber honors Lantern winners news@currentinwestfield.com

The Westfield Chamber of Commerce recently celebrated the work of numerous businesses and citizens that make the city awards a special place to live and work. This year’s recipients include:

Business of the Year – Standard Locknut, LLC In 1948, Robert F. Waddell founded Standard Locknut and Lock Washer Company. Distribution was primarily to aerospace customers. In 1968, he expanded the operation and entered the industrial markets with accessories and pillow blocks and began contract machining. Standard consolidated operations from downtown Carmel and Fishers into their new facility in Westfield in 1994. “A great business has excellent leadership, produces outstanding products, provides for its employees, and looks beyond itself to serve and strengthen other businesses in its community. Standard Locknut receives an A+ on all these levels. You well deserve this award as so many of us benefit from your presence in our community,” stated Eric Lohe, Westfield Chamber of Commerce president. Citizen of the Year – Mic Mead Mead’s ongoing contributions to Westfield and Washington Township have left a remarkable positive impact on the lives of many residents. Mead has assisted Westfield in a number of ways including serving on the comprehensive plan committee, Washington Township Advisory Plan Commission, Grand Junction Task Group and Mead Westfield Arts Council. He is a charter member of the Westfield Rotary Club. “Mic has been, and continues to be, a passionate advocate of Westfield. His significant contribution to our community is illustrated, in part, by his service on the town council and library board. However, beyond those formal positions, Mic has attended countless area meetings in pursuit of developing his depth of knowledge on a variety of community issues. His exhibited dedication to improving our community, in my opinion, is what makes Mic so deserving of the Citizen of the Year award,” stated 2012 Citizen of the Year Duane Lutz. Volunteers of the Year – Janet Lome and Shannon Hamerin Lome and Hamerin met at a Breast Cancer Support Group in February 1997 and have been best friends since that time. Hamerin became involved in the Relay for Life in 2004 and joined the committee in 2005. She introduced Lome to Relay in 2005 and in 2006 they became co-chairs

of Westfield’s annual event. Both are very passionate about the cause. Hamerin is a two-time survivor of breast cancer and Lome has beaten breast cancer three times. “Janet and Shannon are Lome Hamerin more than exemplary volunteers. They truly make the Relay for Life event a success. Their tireless enthusiasm and dedication is beyond compare,” stated Derek Todd, Relay for Life captain.

Luminary Award – Curtis Dyna-Fog, Ltd. Curtis Dyna-Fog was founded in 1947 in Dayton, Ohio, by Russell R. Curtis and his father, W.H. Curtis. Originally named Curtis Automotive Devices, the company specialized in manufacturing valves for the automotive and aircraft industry. The company began producing other types of components for the aircraft industry and started development work using acquired Pulse-Jet Engine Technology. As a result of increasing demand for the pulse-jet machines, Russell Curtis moved the company in 1958 into a newly constructed 20,000-square-foot facility in Westfield. “Curtis Dyna-Fog’s longevity and leadership in our community has impacted this city in countless ways over the years and their ingenious products, made exclusively here in Westfield, provide for the humanitarian needs of those around the globe,” stated Lohe.

Globe Award – Janus Developmental Services Janus employees 48 staff members who work as a team to deliver first rate service to the individuals they serve. Janus is the result of a 1950’s grassroots movement when parents decided not to institutionalize their children. Janus clients participate in many community activities and donated a total of 288 volunteer hours in 2012. Clients have worked in the food pantry at Bethel Lutheran Church, cleaned park trails, held fundraising events and donated the money raised to Hamilton County Special Olympics and the Boys & Girls Club. “I have been on the board for several years and once you get involved it is hard to leave. Janus is a hidden gem in Hamilton County that gives refuge to those people with disabilities. Janus also is a teaching facility for those who can be taught a skill and work in the community,” stated John Schuler, Janus board member.

This personal experience, combined with his integrity and thoughtful leadership, benefits our school district immensely. As the newest school board member, I consider him a mentor and am most impressed by his dedication to Westfield schools and his unwavering consideration of always putting students first in all decisions,” said Duane Lutz, Westfield Washington School Board member.

His talents and abilities to do the job and motivate others to achieve higher education have helped move our organization forward,” stated Fire Chief Jason Lemons. Westfield Police Dept. – Samuel Newlin-Haus Newlin-Haus began his career with Westfield in December 2009. He chose Westfield because of its community atmosphere.

His Newlin-Haus dedication to both his education and physical fitness is truly an inspiration to all,” stated Police Chief Joel Rush. Westfield Public Works – Michael Morgan Morgan began as a meter reader with Westfield Public Works on June 30, 2003. Since then he has served as a field service rep, an Infrastructure Inspector and currently holds the position of senior project manager for the City of Westfield. “Due to his abilities and Morgan hard work, he has established himself as the ‘go-to’ person in the development and construction department. This has not gone unnoticed in my short tenure here and that is why I have decided to give him the leadership role over that division in my department,” stated Public Works Director Ken Alexander. “I cannot say enough wonderful things about him as he has the right attitude and understanding that as a government entity, it is our job to serve our community, residents and business owners.”

Blue ribbon schools – St. Maria Goretti Catholic School in Westfield and St. Louis de Montfort Catholic School in Fishers are the first schools in the Diocese of Lafayette to earn the National Blue Ribbon Award.

Filling big shoes

Chuck Lehman selected to fill vacant city council seat

By Robert Herrington • robert@youarecurrent.com Chuck Lehman knows the character John Dippel brought to the Westfield City Council cannot be replaced, but he plans to cover story bring Dippel’s enthusiasm to better the city. On Oct. 14, Lehman was elected by a Republican caucus to fill the vacant District 4 seat on the Westfield City Council. Dippel, who died on Sept. 21, had two years left on his term. “Chuck’s experience as a businessman and also his years serving many different political roles will be beneficial for the future of Westfield,” said Mayor Andy Cook. “While I deeply miss Councilor Dippel, I know he would be proud of the man that will continue his job of serving the people of District 4.” Once approved by the Hamilton County Board of Elections, Lehman will be sworn in as Councilor on Oct. 28. “The transition from reactionary to visionary government has been terrific the last few years,” he said. “We’re going in the right direction. We’re so well positioned for the growth that’s coming.” During his years in the manufacturing business Lehman was involved in public service and served as a town councilor in Kentland, Ind., and as a Newtown County commissioner. “My first foray into politics was at the county level. I was a commissioner first. I really grew by that experience – different people tugging at you for different reasons,” he said. One of the biggest benefits for Lehman having experience at the local and county levels is taking a different perspective. “It’s just not one thing. You gotta look at the big picture,” he said. “My experience as a commissioner first really helped me even when I was focused down on a rural town. The problems were the same, just a little smaller.” Lehman has worked with city and county budgets for many years and also served as president on a seven-county regional planning commission. “That’s when my eyes were really opened – seeing towns dying, treading water and growing. When you do nothing, nothing happens,” he said. After moving to Westfield in 2007, Lehman became active in community service and has served on the Westfield Advisory Planning Commission for the past two years. “I’m all in with developments to better the city – but with control, consideration and planning,” he said. “Without a grand vision you’re not going

Meet Chuck Lehman Age: 65 Hometown: Kentland, Ind. Residence: Centennial Family: Wife, Patricia, three daughters and six grandchildren. Job: Lehman is the owner of Any Lab Test Now in Carmel, which he opened in 2010. For 37 years, Lehman owned a successful manufacturing business in rural northwest Indiana before selling the company and moving to Westfield in 2007. Hobbies: Lehman and his wife enjoy biking through their neighborhood, being active on the Monon Trail and going to the sledding hill with their grandchildren. Personal quote: “Nothing gets done by itself. Nothing gets done without effort. People sometimes forget that somebody has to do it.”

to get a little one.” Lehman is active in the Westfield Chamber of Commerce, Westfield Rotary Club and his church. “I enjoy serving and being involved,” he said. “When you look at the community there are jobs that need to be done and I enjoy doing it. I don’t like to sit around; it’s more fun being out doing something.” Former Rotary Club President Bruce Watson said Lehman will make an excellent addition to the council. “Chuck has always taken a keen and active interest in the cities’ affairs,” he said. “He is a very thoughtful and level headed individual that keeps a cool head. While I have known him to be excellent with details, he is someone who sees and understands the big picture as well. Chuck is honest and very caring, and someone I would be proud to support for this position.” Lehman said the biggest issue facing Westfield is its vision and preparation for the future. “There’s a big opportunity to take advantage of managing big growth in the small town intimate way. I see it coming,” he said, adding the city needs to prepare its planning and infrastructure while preserving its heritage. “I’m here for the big view. I have no preconceived notions but I’m excited.”

Where he stands When it comes to a few controversial items facing the city, Lehman isn’t shy about his feelings: Grand Park – “An automatic winner. They’re going to come. My concern at first was that the only way to fail with a Grand Park is not making it grand. I’ve taken a lot of people out there with pride that this is in my backyard.” Westfield towers – “Do we want to be on the map or do we not want to be on the map. Do we want to be a destination or a place people ask if we passed it? Two of the towers are optional, two are not. If people can come convince me that it’s a waste of money that will not distinguish us or define the intersection maybe I’ll change my mind.” Utility sale funds – “It’s a critical time. We need to invest that money in short-, mid- and long-range (effort) to meet the needs of the city. Where are we going to put it? Should we invest it in infrastructure? Where will we get the most advantage, the most bang for the buck?” 161st Street-Spring Mill Road development – “It’s obvious that it wasn’t handled properly the first time around. I’m going to guard against that happening again. I’ll look at the entire intersection and look at a lot of factors. When presented with the right options, the answer will come out.”

FROM THE BACKSHOP Mayor gets behind violence awareness

Just say no It is our position that substance abuse and addiction cause a major burden to society. Red Ribbon Week is traditionally observed the last week in October as an opportunity to talk to our children and the children in our lives about the dangers of drug abuse. Most elementary-aged children will wear their red ribbon with pride as they tote their backpacks home for the evening. Unfortunately, the schools can’t control what happens after the child leaves school property. Far too many children are exposed to drug and substance abuse at home. What happens along the way that changes the wide-eyed innocent child who knows drugs are bad into an abuser? Boredom, heredity and environment likely play a role. We’ve turned into a society that breathalyses students before events and urine tests them when they get home, all in the name of safety because the technology is available. Can law enforcement keep up with regulating the list of household ingredients used to manufacture new drugs? Should non-users have to suffer the consequences? Legalizing the “not so bad” drugs hardly seems like the correct answer. While it may seem trite and simplistic, in the words of former first lady Nancy Reagan, “Just say, NO.”

It’s time to celebrate Commentary by Terry Anker Each year the community foundation of Hamilton County, The Legacy Fund, brings together a room full of the most generous philanthropists, volunteers and just plain good folks with the leadership of 50 or so area nonprofits. The stated objective for the Celebration of Philanthropy is to award the Living Legacy Award, which acknowledges an individual or family who, through their lifetime, has made a particularly important contribution to our community as a philanthropist. The foundation has done a nice job in both recognizing the best among us and inspiring others to consider their own giving. This year’s recipients (look for an announcement of the family in the coming weeks) are no exception to those who have come before. Perhaps even more importantly, the event (Nov. 14 at the Ritz Charles in Carmel) encourages nonprofit organizations to interact directly with the scores of donors active in our county. Equally compelling is the opportunity for existing and potential

board members to meet and exchange ideas with the assembled power-house of community service talent. Over the years, board directors and funders have been introduced to scores of innovative and thoughtful public-serving organizations and their leaders. In bringing these ingredients together, countless new ideas and enhancements to existing work have benefitted (and continues to bring extensive value to) our community. If you care about giving, plan to attend. If you care about those who work to support the arts, the needy and those most at risk, plan to attend. If you are looking to have a fun evening, plan to attend. Check out Legacy Fund at www.legacyfund.org or on Facebook for more information or to watch the great videos on previous winners – they are inspiring. Or, call Kerry Byrne at Legacy Fund 843-2479.

As you might know, Westfield Mayor Andy Cook proclaimed October as Domestic Violence Awareness Month. It’s a noteworthy proclamation, and Hamilton County’s own Prevail, Inc., which advocates for victims of crime and abuse, has been putting on something of a full-court press to make sure everyone is cognizant of what moves in our community, possibly even in the house next door. The numbers are at once frightening and staggering, which, we presume, led Cook to issue the proclamation. In 2012, alone, Prevail served 2,981 unduplicated clients, a 9 percent increase over 2011. Females represented 78 percent of the clients, and, respectively, 35 percent and 63 percent reported incomes of less than $5,000 and $35,000. Shockingly, 24 percent were 18 years old or younger. The statistic that blew us away the most was this: Most victims knew their offender. According to Prevail, 42 percent experienced it at the hands of a spouse or immediate partner, 26 percent identified a family member, 19 percent an acquaintance, 11 percent someone considered a date and in only 2 percent of the cases was the perpetrator considered a stranger. It really makes you think. Congrats to Cook - and, clearly, to Prevail – for keeping the topic in front of our citizens.

Perfect woman I am not

Commentary by Danielle Wilson

Some of the e-mails I get in response to my column are hilarious. Apparently, a good portion of the northern Indianapolis humor suburbs are full of perfect wives and mothers who feel it is their right, nay their Jesus-driven duty, to point out my flaws and offer me advice on how to have the perfect family. Here are some of their suggestions: 1. Never ever lose your temper. Good mothers don’t freak out when their daughters spill nail polish remover on antique maple tables. Shame on you for throwing a casserole dish. 2. Never try and spice up your marriage by watching an R-rated movie with Scarlett Johansson or Brad Pitt. Violence and sex should be banned from theaters. Clearly you’re headed for divorce if you can’t find inspiration at church. Sinner! 3. Never become frustrated with your spouse! The perfect wife will have her hair coiffed and make-up on, ready to serve a home-cooked gourmet meal to her husband when he returns from his hard day at work. He does not want to hear about your hectic afternoon nor does he have the time to clean up after himself. Stop pestering and start doting. 4. Never say anything bad about your chil-

Never consider plastic surgery. Stretch marks and saggy boobs are Jesus’ gift to you for bearing precious little angels. Stop being so selfish and join the PTO. Oh, you work full-time? The horror! Your kids are going to all end up in prison. I think what these women really want me to do is stop being honest, because the truth is, life is not always awesome. Kids sometimes stink, and so do husbands, and, occasionally, I would like to sport a C-cup bra. Why can’t we embrace the difficulties of parenthood and marriage, find some humor in them, and congratulate each other on trying our best? Why must it always be about who’s the better mom/wife and who’s got the most perfect life? Gag. I’m just trying to make sure my kids wear deodorant and have lunch money on most days. If being the perfect mom and wife means never expressing how I truly feel, then I’ll take being mediocre any day. Peace out.

There was only one John Dippel Commentary by Mayor Andy Cook

Rarely in one’s professional life do you come across the likes of a John Dippel. City councilor John and I were thrown together as a result of one common love: Westfield. And I was the fortunate one. We became friends.  As is often the case, we learn of a person’s web of friendships and influences after they are gone. Since his passing I have spoken with so many people he touched in a similar way. John cared; he cared for his city, his family and his church. His mannerisms were legendary. I am convinced many people attended boring city council meetings to watch John “perform.” Unpredictable would be an understatement. You were never quite sure what John was going to do or say. His gruff, crusty presentation intimidated many. His loudness penetrated far, but scattered throughout his dissertations were streaks of brilliance. John had a gift of making you think. He would probe and challenge. Nobody could anger me more than John. Yet, when my head cooled off I most often found John was just making me think

completely through an issue in his own, highly effective manner. John served annually on the council’s budget committee and contributed greatly to the fiscally responsible, balanced budget this city enjoys. John participated heavily in two of the most aggressive and far-reaching projects this city has undertaken: Grand Park and the utility sale. More than once, when the sale negotiations would stall, we’d “unleash” John and the results were nothing short of amazing. Because of his passion and hard work we will now have $91 million from the utility sale. Monies that will pay off the utility debt and give Westfield more than $40 million that will go toward much needed infrastructure improvement. Yes, this city will miss John. I will sorely miss John. But this we know - his influence will be felt for many years to come. Thank you councilor Dippel. Andy Cook is in his second term as mayor of Westfield. Find out more about the life of John Dippel and the impact he had on the City of Westfield, visit the mayor’s blog at www. westfield.in.gov/mayorsblog

Utility sale: All marketing, no substance Editor, Now that the IURC has approved the purchase of the Westfield water and sewer utilities, I feel compelled to respond to the “guest” column by Mr. (Citizens Energy Group President Carey) Lykins. While I hope that everything he states in the letter comes to pass, the evidence in front of us indicates otherwise and only time will tell. I assume that Citizens had competent folks doing the due diligence for the Indianapolis acquisition. Therefore, I find it hard to believe that they didn’t know funding investment via debt was going to be changed even before it was purchased. Why then wasn’t the impact of any

anticipated change not divulged to the customers beforehand? I expect the same to happen in Westfield. There will be some unforeseen special cause which will require a rate increase in order to continue to provide the superior service we all deserve. Unfortunately, the Westfield government has grand plans and needed to sell one of the few assets we had so they are partners in this plan. Rather than use the proceeds to create a reserve fund and revenue stream, we will get some roundabouts and a couple towers on the new highway, all marketing and no substance. Roy Maynard, 46074

Maybe next year

Commentary by Mike Redmond

For years and years, more than 45 of them in fact, I have been saving something. It hasn’t accrued interest or gained value, humor but it is precious to me - so much so that every year about this time I debate whether to get it out and use it up, or leave it for another, better October. What is this treasure, you ask? It is … one night of trick or treating. Sherman, set the Wayback Machine to October, 1967 and Bethesda, Md., where young Mike Redmond is planning his Halloween strategy. It is three days to Halloween and he is ready. He has the costume (Dracula, his old reliable for the last three years); he has the candy bag (one of those big department store shopping bags from last Christmas); and he has the route planned. He also has a slight headache, a bit of a chill and a cough. Or, as it is called by the doctor the

next morning when it has exploded into a fullon 104-degree fever and a diminished ability to breathe, pneumonia. So much for Halloween. Under no circumstances will our young vampire be allowed to swoop through the streets of Bethesda this All-Hallow’s Eve. You can’t very well swoop when the very act of sitting up makes you woozy. My disappointment was palpable. Not only had I perfected my Bela Lugosi impersonation, but I was butting up against a family rule that said no trick or treating after age 13. This was to be my last Halloween Hurrah. To read more visit currentinwestfield.com Mike Redmond is an author, journalist, humorist and speaker. Write him at mike@ mikeredmondonline. com or P.O.

Masquerade on Main raising spirits and funds

By Dawn Pearson • editorial@yoaurecurrent.com

What better place to have a celebration of All Hallow’s Eve, (aka Halloween) through elaborate costumes, good food, enterDiversion tainment and great prizes, then at The Sanctuary, a Victorian church built in the 1800‘s located on Main Street in downtown Zionsville and home to Nancy Noel’s studio. “As an artist and person I love the psyche of why people do what they do. I want The Sanctuary to be a place where good things happen and elevated thinking happens. I do have a lot of Noel skeletons in my paintings, but it’s the yin and the yang, not good and bad,” she described. “People have fears. The Sanctuary is all about positive thinking, fun and spiritual freedom.” At the inaugural “Masquerade on Main” last year about 175 people attended and they are expecting more to dress up and attend this year according Kathy Pierle, spokesperson for The Sanctuary. The United Methodist Children’s Home in Lebanon is this year’s recipient of 50% of proceeds. The organization first served as a home for orphans and is currently operating as a treatment facility dedicated to helping emotionally troubled youth struggling with a variety of challenges and proceeds raised will assist with their needs in the upcoming holiday season. “We really think that they make a significant impact to the community and we are thrilled to be connected with them,” Pierle said. Noel added “They’ve been in business 100 years and they are a wonderful family style refuge for kids that struggle.” This year’s“Masquerade on Main” will be held Oct. 26 from 7 to 11 pm at The Sanctuary, 75 North Main Street, Zionsville. A seasonal menu of appetizing items from Noel’s Colours Restaurant will be served and included in the price of admissions. Due to Noel’s love of costumes, there will be a “Best Costume” contest judged by local celebrity judges, on-air personalities and Noel herself. The selected winners will receive limited edition prints of Noel’s art ranging in values from $25-500. In addition to the costume contest there will be musical entertainment, tarot card and reiki readings, paranormal investigations, and angel readings. There will also be a cash bar.

Show to benefit Africa University By Katy Frantz • news@currentincarmel.com

The Indianapolis Brass Choir will be hosting a free concert at St. Mark’s United Methodist Church in Carmel at 4 p.m. Oct. 27. choir During the performance the ensemble will be playing a variety of music ranging from Renaissance to Broadway, from jazz to folk songs. Since being founded in 1986, the choir’s musicians voluntarily perform concerts to benefit local churches and charities. Performers in the brass choir meet weekly for rehearsals and perform in 10 to 12 concerts annually without pay. During the 30-member choir’s performance there will be a free-will offering to raise money for Africa University, a private higher education institution in Mutare, Zimbabwe. Funds collected at the performance will sup-

port several endowed student scholarships as well as establish an endowed faculty position in agriculture and natural resources. “Our congregation has a connection with Africa University,” said Nancy Canning, marketing communications coordinator at St. Mark’s United Methodist Church. Earlier this year the Africa University student choir attended and performed at the church in Carmel. The university, founded by the African bishops of the United Methodist Church, has a mission to provide education to not only Zimbabwe, but also the African continent as a whole. Education at the university focuses to develop general and professional skills, as well as build spiritual, moral and ethical character in the students.

Ghost stories are as common during Halloween as trick-or-treating and bobbing for apples. Local residents may be surhalloween prised to learn that Fishers has haunted roots too. Haunted Prairie: A Hidden History of Conner Prairie, explains the history of local legends. Visitors will hear supernatural stories and personal accounts of unexplained phenomenon on the property of Conner Prairie Interactive History Park through a nighttime guided tour including 1836 Prairietown, 1963 Civil War Journey, Conner Homestead and the Chinese House. Guests will hear the story behind Heady Hollow, an area on Allisonville Road near 126th Street. The region has a cemetery and is named after early 19th century settlers, James and Dorothy Heady, according to Rosie Arnold, education programs manager for Conner Prairie. Arnold has heard several myths, including stories of a grave robber named Ebenezer Heady and a fire that burned down a schoolhouse, killing several children. “What seems to be the most common, though, is people reporting hearing strange noises, including hoof beats as though they are being chased by someone on horseback, and seeing apparitions,” she said. A famous tale includes that of a Noblesville attorney who drove his Model T through the Heady Hollow and stopped in the road because he said he saw a ghost standing there. “Legends say that the ghosts may be the spirits of highwaymen who would rob travelers on the road and hide out in the woods around the hollow or of the highwaymen’s victims themselves,” Arnold said. A confirmed story involves Hamp West, a grave robber who lived in the area that is now the Sunblest subdivision at 116th Street near Lantern Road. When West dug up graves, he took the cadavers and sold them to the medical

Nothing scarier than the woods

By Terri Spilman • editorial@youarecurrent.com

Running frantically through the dark woods trying to escape a masked park ranger with a chain saw doesn’t normally halloween conjure up a sense of fun unless it’s during the Haunted Trails of Cool Creek Park annual Halloween event. This year’s Haunted Trails will feature guided group tours through several different ghoul- and ghost-themed fright stations along the park’s trails and paths for thrill seekers older than 12. Over the years, Haunted Trails has evolved into a community fundraiser, and the fright stations are staffed by civic organizations and school groups who actually write their own scripts and choreograph each fright station in accordance with guidelines set by event organizers. This year’s Haunted Trails event also will include pyro-entertainment on a stage at the Cool Creek Music Pavilion, along with musical and video entertainment, hay rides, a camp fire and storytelling. Food and refreshments will be available for purchase at the Friends of Hamilton County Parks booth with proceeds benefiting the foundation and its efforts to maintain and support the parks. A non-scary area, the Trick-or-Treat trail features activities, nature programming and smaller, less-scary and non-spooky trails for those

Halloween Bloody Baked Rats

2 pounds ground beef 1/2 onion, chopped 1 egg, beaten 1 cup dry bread crumbs 1 1.25-ounce packet meatloaf seasoning mix 1 cup cubed Cheddar cheese 3 10-ounce cans tomato sauce 1 cup white sugar 1 Tablespoon Worcestershire sauce 1 ounce uncooked spaghetti, broken into fourths • 1/2 carrot, cut into 1/8-inch thick slices • 1 Tablespoon frozen green peas Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. In a large bowl, combine the ground beef, onion, egg, bread crumbs and meatloaf seasoning. Use your hands to mix until well blended. Measure out 1/3 cupfuls of meat mixture and mold around a cube of cheese like a meatball. Shape into a point at one end and lengthen the body a bit by rolling between your hands. Place your “rat”’ in a shallow baking dish and continue with the remaining meat. Insert pieces of uncooked spaghetti into the rounded end of the rats to make tails. In a medium bowl, stir together the tomato sauce, sugar and Worcestershire sauce. Pour over rats in the dish and cover with a lid or

aluminum foil. Bake for 45 minutes. Uncover the dish and continue to bake for another 20 to 30 minutes, basting occasionally with the sauce to glaze the rats. While the rats finish baking, heat peas and carrots in a small bowl in the microwave for about 15 seconds. Carefully transfer the rats to a serving platter so that their delicate tails don’t fall off. Press peas into the pointy end to make eyes, and insert carrot slices to make ears. Spoon some of the tomato sauce around them and serve.

Brain Hemorrhage

• 1 fluid ounce chilled peach Schnapps • 1 teaspoon chilled Irish cream liqueur • 1 splash chilled grenadine syrup Pour Schnapps into a shot glass. Very gently pour Irish cream liqueur over Schnapps. Wait until the Irish cream liqueur begins to clump and “curdle” to look like a brain - just a few moments. Gently pour a tiny amount of grenadine “blood” over the brain. Watch your guests gag over the look of one of the nastiest-looking (but yummy) Halloween drinks around.

Dr. Todd Walters invites you to an open house to introduce his newly opened dental office, “Smile Generators” to Carmel, Westfield, Noblesville, Fishers and the Indianapolis area. “Smile Generators” is in a newly constructed building and features state of the art building materials and dental equipment designed to accommodate all patients.

In addition to his gold medal, he is a member of the United States Track and Field Hall of Fame. He has also authored a book of poetry and his autobiography, “The Longest Leap”. They will be present from 10:00 am until 1:00 pm Both of these gentlemen are graduates of Indiana University and are members of the I.U. Athletic Hall of Fame.

Westfield firefighters presented a $5,655 check to the Steadman family on behalf of the Muscular Dystrophy Association on Sept. 30. The money was raised during the WFD’s annual fill-the-boot campaign over Labor Day weekend. Firefighters took to streets with their fire boots. With boots in hand, they solicited donations and the community reciprocated. “This is definitely the best year for our fill-the-boot campaign,” firefighter Jason Maners said. “We received such an outpouring of support from our community. It was great.” Fill the Boot funds also are used to support some of the 300 worldwide research projects seeking better treatments and cures for the more than 40 neuromuscular diseases covered by MDA, including Duchenne muscular dystrophy, spinal muscular atrophy and ALS.

Don’t let teen drivers scare you Commentary by Jamie Ianigro

Question from Brittany F. from Fishers: Our daughter turned 16 over the summer, and the day she gets her license Insurance is approaching. How do I add her to my policy and what can I do to make sure we don’t have to cancel our cable to afford it? Response from Jamie Ianigro: Adding a teen to your insurance policy is not the thing to do if you’re hoping to keep your insurance costs down. You can do a couple of things to make sure you get the best price. First, make sure your teen keeps her grades up. A good majority of carriers offer discounts for teens that maintain a “B” average or higher. Next, make sure your teen completes a driver education class. Lastly, make sure you pay attention to our claim prevention ideas and follow all of the current laws and regulations. Adding a new driver to your policy is as easy as giving your independent agent a phone call or an email. We will need the new driver’s license number, name and the vehicle that they will be driving. If you’re adding a new vehicle, we will also need the VIN (vehicle identification number) for the new auto. The type of vehicle your teen drives is a major factor in the cost of coverage. It’s a pretty simple concept. The car you want them to drive (a fourdoor sedan) is going to cost a lot less to insure when compared to the car they want to drive (a coupe, convertible or sports car). Modifying your coverage limits is a subject you should run by your independent agent. What I

would recommend depends greatly on your own circumstances and risk tolerance. I will say that the state minimum limits are inadequate and should only be used if financially necessary. The leading cause of death for U.S. teens is motor vehicle crashes. Teens are at risk because they are more likely to drive aggressively, to not wear seatbelts and to underestimate the dangers associated with hazardous driving situations. When we talk about claim prevention, we’re talking about minimizing the risk of those three things. The most straight forward approach to prevention is to just put it all down on paper and create a Teen-Parent Driving Contract. The contract will spell out your expectations on anything you feel like addressing along with the punishment for breaking the contract. We recommend addressing some or all of these issues in your Teen-Parent Driving Contract: • Seatbelts: Make sure every person in the vehicle is wearing a seatbelt. • Cell Phones: Never use a cell phone while driving. • Passengers: Limit the number of passengers in the vehicle. • Current Laws: Make sure you are familiar with our current Graduated Drivers License laws Note: Current laws and regulations can be viewed at www.iihs.org.

Westfield’s home market is white hot Commentary by Jim Litten

With 1,921 home sales in September in central Indiana, overall year-to-date home sales are up 17.8 percent compared to this time period last year, according to statistics real estate compiled by F.C. Tucker Company. On a monthly basis, September 2013 home sales declined 1.6 percent compared to September 2012, a decrease of 31 homes sold in the nine counties that F.C. Tucker tracks. Four of the nine counties reported increased sales compared to September 2012. Though September home sales slipped slightly in Hamilton County, sales are still trending upward for the first nine months of 2013 compared to the same time period last year. • In Hamilton County, overall year-to-date home sales climbed to 5,336 – an increase of 895 homes compared to the same time period in 2012. • September 2013 home sales in Hamilton County dipped 6.7 percent to 405 homes – down 29 homes from September 2012. • Specifically in Westfield, 62 homes sold in September 2013, a decrease of 10.7 percent compared to September 2012.

• Available homes are spending less time on the market in Westfield. For the first nine months of this year, homes spent an average of 66 days for sale. During the same time last year, homes spent 95 days on the market. • Sales prices are up in Westfield. Last month, the average sales price rose to $251,939 –rising 11.5 percent from September 2012. • Of the home sales in Westfield last month, one was priced $1-$2 million; four were priced $500,000 to $1 million; nine were priced $300,000 to $499,999; 17 were priced $200,000 to 299,999; 29 were priced $100,000 to $199,999; and two were priced at $99,999 or less. As we close the third quarter of 2013, we remain optimistic that the central Indiana real estate market will continue to improve. Across the nine counties that F.C. Tucker tracks, home sales and home prices are up while the number of available homes for sale are down, which will help the market further stabilize. Jim Litten is the president of F.C. Tucker Company. Comment on this article by e-mailing to editorial@ youarecurrent.com.

Fun with contronyms

I had the distinct honor and privilege of taking part in the wedding ceremony of a dear friend (and former Current grammar guy editor) last weekend. An opportunity for a column sprang forth from the event. As part of his reading, the officiant examined the word “cleave,” which can mean both “to separate from” and “to adhere firmly to.” “Cleave” is a contronym: a word with multiple meanings, at least one of which is the reverse of its other meanings. Contronyms are also called auto-antonyms or, my personal favorite, antagonyms. They occur when distinct words morph through time to have the same form, or when words evolve to have multiple, contradictory meanings. You can get a lot of fun wordplay out of contronyms, especially in poetry – or, as much fun as people who aren’t weird poetry nerds like me can have. They’re a good talking piece too, though. In the interest of augmenting your linguistic party banter repertoire, here are some other contronyms to keep in the quiver: “Fast” can mean both “moving quickly” and “not moving,” i.e. “The truck is stuck fast in the mud.” “Off” can mean both “deactivated” and “activated:” “I turned off the alarm after it went off.”

“Oversight” can mean both “supervision” and “something overlooked:” “We need more oversight of employees to prevent further costly oversights.” “Splice,” much like “cleave,” can mean both “to join” and “to separate.” “Consult” can mean both asking for advice and giving advice. “Garnish” can mean both “to add to” or “embellish” and “to take away,” i.e. “My wages were garnished after I failed to pay court fees.” Many of these words became contronyms through natural processes as our language formed, and so their contradictory meanings do not seem strange to us. Consider a more contemporary example: the word “literally.” “Literally” means “in actuality.” However, through its constant misuse, Merriam-Webster now says the word can be defined as “figuratively,” an antonym. Though I find this situation particularly groan-inducing, there you have it: the evolution of language in action. It’s both beautiful and terrible – like a lion hunting a gazelle. Or, you know, something less dramatic. Jordan Fischer is a contributing columnist for Current Publishing. To ask Jordan a grammar question, write him at rjfische@gmail.com.

A temple without its soul

Commentary by Donald Knebel

Near the city of Udaipur in northwest India is a Hindu temple complex called Sahasra Baahu, built more than 1,000 years ago. The intritravel cate stone carvings both inside and out reflect countless hours of tedious effort. However, the complex and the extraordinary human effort it represents now lie abandoned, not because no worshippers are nearby but because the temple has literally lost its soul. For most Hindus, the ultimate reality of the universe is “Brahman,” a transcendent and unknowable power behind and beyond all existence. Somewhat like Christians with a guardian angel, many Hindus consider themselves monotheists despite praying to specific manifestations of the ultimate reality for help and guidance. To worship their chosen manifestations of Brahman, Hindus have long built temples having the essential characteristics of temples everywhere. At the center is the Holy of Holies, where the statutory image resides. Above the Holy of Holies, a pyramid-shaped tower points toward the heavens. On the walls are carvings having religious significance. Surprising to many Christians, for whom God and sexual pleasure don’t usually mix, the walls of Hindu temples often contain explicit sex scenes, not always procreative. Hindus find the divine in all human activity and nothing is BFTH_current_quarter_pg_ad_Layout 1 9/25/13 shameful about the desire for pleasure. The

Sahasra Baahu (Submtited photo)

wildly colorful exteriors of many Hindu temples demonstrate this same idea. When Sahasra Baahu was completed in the 10th or 11th century, a stone image of the god Vishnu was placed in the Holy of Holies. A priest then called the power of Brahman into the statue. Once so consecrated, the temple became alive and worshippers could experience the divine within it. Today, no image resides in Sahasra Baahu’s Holy of Holies. Probably hundreds of years ago, the statue was damaged - likely by persons opposing Hindu beliefs. As a result, the temple died, never to live again. With the spirit of the eternal Brahman missing, the magnificent stone carvings have no more spiritual significance than a pile of rocks.

A guide to choosing hardwood floors

Commentary by David Decker

Because of its versatile style, natural feeling and durable structure, hardwood has remained one of the most enduringly indoors trendy flooring options for generations. Unlike other flooring trends that come and go, hardwood flooring has remained popular for more than 200 years. Choosing hardwood flooring is clearly a safe investment for homeowners. However, hardwood flooring isn’t the perfect solution for every space. There are a number of facts and considerations that you should know before installing hardwood flooring. Before installing hardwood, you’ll want to survey and inspect the room. Certain types of hardwood are susceptible to moisture, which can cause the wood to splinter or bend. Hardwood flooring also tends to be a bit noisy. If you choose to install hardwood in a central room, you may want to invest in rugs or pieces of furniture that absorb sound to keep movement muffled. Additionally, excessive amounts of foot traffic can cause wear and tear to the planks. Scuffed and scratched floors can be refinished, but this process can get costly, especially if you choose a softer wood that needs frequent repair. After you’ve decided whether the room is a good fit for hardwood flooring, you’ll have to decide the type and style of plank you’d like to install. Hardwood can be divided into two main

categories: solid and engineered. Solid hardwood is made from pure, solid wood planks. Engineered hardwood is made from pressed plywood that uses a thin wood veneer as the top layer. Because it is made from bonded layers of wood, it is more durable than solid hardwood, and less likely to be affected by temperature or humidity. Engineered planks can be created in a greater array of sizes and widths (and wider planks have the added benefit of being able to trick the eye into making a room look larger). To keep your hardwood protected and shiny,

clean regularly with water-based solutions. You’ll also want to sweep and vacuum your floor weekly to eliminate dust and particles. Remember that hardwood is susceptible to water damage, so never use a wet wop or let spills soak into the boards. Consult the manufacturer’s guide for specific cleaning techniques if you are unsure of how to care for your specific flooring; otherwise, you may cause unintentional damage to the floorboards. The popularity of hardwood flooring means that there are a countless number of styles and designs on the market today. Investigate the wide variety of lumber types, colors, finishes and plank sizes before making a selection. If you are planning on going green, there are even environmentally friendly options available that are made from sustainable wood sources. The possibilities are endless. Choosing the right hardwood for your home is a big decision. With careful consideration and proper maintenance, the flooring you select can last for years to come. Weigh your options carefully until you find the perfect flooring to fit your home. David Decker is president of the Affordable Companies, which include Affordable Kitchens and Bathrooms and now Affordable Custom Flooring. They are based in Carmel (575-9540, www.the-affordablecompanies.com). E-mail home improvement questions to david.decker@the-affordablecompanies.com.
