Sheriff Mark Bowen is warning residents of another possible scam currently in progress in Hamilton County. In the course of two days, a Fishers resident was called by different people claiming to work for the IRS and was told he had filed his taxes incorrectly for the past 10 years and if he did not pay a penalty, a warrant would be issued for his arrest. The complainant was asked to go to a grocery store and get a tax voucher to send money to the IRS for the penalty. If he did not comply a warrant would be issued for his arrest.

Thorough dunking for a good cause news@currentinwestfield.com Westfield Mayor Andy Cook, Fire Marshal Garry Harling and HealthSource of Westfield’s Stacey Young all took time sitting fundraiser on the dunk tank plank – and in the water beneath it – as they raised money for longtime resident Jane Dupont on Oct. 11. Dupont has worked for IMMI and lived in Westfield for more than 30 years. She is now facing the toughest battle of her life, stage 4 breast cancer. One year ago Dupont underwent surgery and was told the surgeon removed all of the cancerous tumors, but recently she received the diagnosis that the cancer returned. Due to that diagnosis, Dupont can no longer work and will lose her health insurance. “If I can make Jane’s life a little bit easier by swallowing some of my pride and volunteering to get dunked, then why not?” stated Cook. “Jane deserves a fighting chance and I hope the citizens of Westfield help make that happen.” Young said the event has raised $1,013 and HealthSource of Westfield will continue to provide more fundraising opportunities with $10 Domino’s Pizza cards (with 16 buy one get one free coupons) and free chiropractic exams with a $10 donation to Jane (the deal does not apply to federal insurance beneficiaries and ACN participants). “It is a highly sad situation and she deserves

All-American camp taps WHS senior news@currentinwestfield.com Cody Peterson, backline captain and Westfield High School senior, was selected to attend the Regional All-American Achievement Rugby Camp. The camp is coached by Salty Thompson of the USA Eagles National Rugby Team. After watching Peterson play during the fall season, a scout from USA Rugby made the recommendation because of his speed and tackling ability. “(Rugby) is a great option for high school athletes looking for a new challenge and exciting experience. I like the teammates I play with and wish I found out about rugby earlier in my life. There is nothing more fun, more challenging and more exhausting than rugby,” Peterson stated. He started playing rugby for the Westfield Shamrocks Rugby Club during his sophomore year. Liked and respected by his teammates, he continues to provide on-the-field leadership for his Westfield Shamrocks Rugby Club and the Hamilton United Club, a fall season club made up from multiple rugby clubs in the county. “It is exciting to see the development of our players,” Westfield Shamrocks Rugby Club Coach Greg Stewart stated. “Cody’s selection shows the commitment of the club and all the athletes to the highest levels of good sportsmanship.” If selected Peterson will participate with the USA All-American Team, touring England in the summer with the High School All‐American team.

The site was designed by eGov Strategies, and features enhanced functionality as well as a cleaner, easier layout to navigate. The Website uses a responsive design, which allows for easy viewing no matter the device. “The Website is an important tool in our effort to communicate with the community,” Westfield Mayor Andy Cook said. “This redesign will allow us to better organize and present valuable information, creating a more transparent city government.” Officials said the new design allows for easy access to the most popular pages and offers a built in language translator in order to make the site’s information available to everyone. Updates to the Website will continue over the next several months as the city looks to build upon the design of the site and integrate more solutions to better serve its residents and businesses. Free child development workshop – Janus Developmental Services, Inc. is offering a free child development workshop for parents, caregivers and teachers caring for young children from 9 a.m. to noon Nov. 2 at 1555 Westfield Rd., Noblesville.

St. Louis de Montfort Catholic School OPEN HOUSE

INDIANAPOLIS—October 16, 2013—Stephen J. Helmich, president, announces that Brother Ken Haders, C.S.C., has been named vice president for mission integration at Cathedral High School. As part of the leadership of the 95-year-old Indianapolis institution and a member of the Congregation of Holy Cross, Brother Haders will help reinforce and communicate Holy Cross values in the day-to-day life of the school. Cathedral High School was founded by the Brothers of Holy Cross in 1918, the religious order created by Blessed Father Basil Moreau. The Brothers of Holy Cross are the first order of teaching brothers to be established in the United States. In 1842, the Brothers began the University of Notre Dame, and have been teaching in schools across the country and across the world since that time. In 2011, Cathedral High School formally re-affiliated with the Brothers of Holy Cross. Cathedral is one of 16 Holy Cross high schools in the United States.

For the 17 years prior to his coming to Cathedral, Brother Ken Haders was president of Archbishop Hoban High School in Akron, Ohio. He held the same position at Holy Trinity High School in Chicago. Brother Ken is a member of the Congregation of Holy Cross, Midwest Province of Brothers. He has been provincial counselor with the Congregation, chief financial officer, delegate to the general chapter in Rome, and moderator of the district chapter in Ghana. Brother Ken earned both a bachelor’s and a master’s degree from the University of Notre Dame in addition to a master’s in social administration from Case-Western Reserve University.

Local family feuds on game show

By Robert Herrington • robert@youarecurrent.com What began as an audience to appease their mother ended with the Finnigan family meeting Steve Harvey on a famous diversion game show set. The Finnigans will appear on Family Feud at 7 p.m. Oct. 29 on WNDY Channel 23. “It was so exciting,” Sara Finnigan said. “It was a great, great experience. We all have kids so it was just nice so to get away from the house for a couple nights.” Finnigan was joined by her husband, Andrew; mother, Barb Brockhoff; sister, Rachel Lindley; and brother-in-law, Matt Lindley. Brockhoff heard about the show’s local auditions and Finnigan went online and signed the group up. “She was really adamant about it.” she said. After playing the game, the group met with the producer and was impressed by the show’s staff. “They have a unified vision to make the show good for the families. They’re people who actually care. They really wanted us to win. They bring out the best in families,” Finnigan said. “There were 300 families there but we felt good about it. The next week we received a call to fly to Atlanta.” The day of the taping was a “very, very long day” for the family. Finnigan said they played families to practice but even that was stressful. “You were still sort of fighting to get on the show,” she said. “On the very last show they

were going to tape we got on the show.” Finnigan said the show’s pressure to come up with an answer on the fly leads to comical situations when words escape your mouth before being thought about. “There were a couple of situations where Steve Harvey was crying because he was laughing so hard,” she said. Everyone has a shtick and for the Finnigan family it was Brockhoff. “My mom said she was the hog calling champion of Indiana and exercised her hog calling. It’s something you can’t describe, you just have to hear and see. It’s loud, uncomfortable and hilarious,” Finnigan said. Finnigan said the opportunity was wonderful except for one aspect – the head to head buzzer. “I could never ever get it first,” she said. “When I did I freaked out.”

Westfield Lions put clubhouse up for sale as Grand Junction project moves forward By Robert Herrington • robert@youarecurrent.com A staple in the Westfield community for the past 55 years may soon disappear. Westfield Lions Club Secretary Jeff Larrison said the organization has hired real estate agent cover story Tyce Carlson and has put the clubhouse and property up for sale. “We finally realized with Grand Junction becoming more of a reality, it was time,” Larrison said. “We all understand that Grand Junction is coming. It’s going to be a great thing for downtown Westfield.” The Westfield Lions Club was established in 1930 and initially met at the Community Room of Larrison the Westfield Public Library. In 1955 plans were drawn up for a clubhouse to be built on land purchased from the town. With members doing 80 percent of the work, the building was completed in 1958. In 1970 the building was enlarged to 2,400 square feet - nearly double the original space. “This building has been used by Lions and the community 265 days a year with scouts, 4-H clubs and rentals for birthday parties, showers and auctions,” Lion Bob Benson said. “I can’t tell you how many churches were started here. From a community standpoint, this was and in many ways still is the community center.” In addition to the community, Larrison said several of the older club members have been attending events at 120 Jersey St. for the past 30 to 40 years. “It was an emotional decision. It still is emotional,” he said. The Lions have set the asking price at $500,000 for the 0.585-tract and are now seeking someone interested in the property. “We’re not under the gun to move yet. We have a couple years to go before we’re forced with an ultimatum to leave. We may not get any interest, we want to see how it goes,” Larrison said. “The city does not intend to buy our property. It’s better for us (financially) if someone else came in.” “The city has indicated that the area currently occupied by the clubhouse will be developed by a private developer. It’s uncertain at this time who that developer might be or what sort of space or structure(s) might replace the clubhouse,” Lion Dale McCullough stated. “It’s apparent that Westfield is in the path of progress. As improvements to U.S. 31 and Ind. 32 progress, together with the city’s plans for park development, change is inevitable.” The Lions’ board of directors has appointed a committee to consider options for relocating to a meeting place that will best serve the interests of the club, as well as the community. McCullough said that unfortunately for the club, property values in and around Westfield are under pressure from development and are trending sharply upward in price. Along these same lines available vacant land and potential existing buildings for sale as potential sites for a new clubhouse are scarce. “We don’t know if we’ll buy another place or move to a church or restaurant,” Larrison said. “We have a few different options. We don’t know what we want to do yet … We can’t take out a mortgage because we try to keep dues low.”

(Top right) From left, Westfield Lions Maurice Booker, Brian Ross, Richard McMullen and Roy Hadley celebrate the club’s 35th anniversary on Oct. 7, 1965. (Above) Until the property has been sold, the Westfield Lions will continue to meet at its clubhouse like they have since it was built in 1958.

Grand Junction update Westfield Parks Director Melody Jones said seven properties were recently demolished, graded, seeded and covered in straw. Work was completed two weeks ago and two other properties were demolished earlier this year. “We were hoping it’d stay 60 degrees for a few more weeks. It may just be straw until spring,” Jones said. Jones said the project’s focus now shifts back to negotiations as the city looks to purchase more properties south of Park Street where the realignment of Mill Street will take Jones place. Within the immediate area of the park, Jones said the city has come to agreements with three and still needs to work on four properties. “There are a few we still need to negotiate - get the rest of the properties in purchase agreement or purchased outright,” she said. “In order to do the Mill Street extension, additional properties south of that area will be impacted.” Jones said three properties along Union Street also will be impacted as the city has plans to acquire a slither of backyard space. Jones said no buildings would be affected. “We packaged the last seven (properties) together. As we acquire, we are demolishing them. In the spring two or three more will come down. It’s to our financial advantage to do several at a time,” she said, adding more homes will be demolished in the summer and next fall. Jones said the parks department’s goal is to have a major event every single month and something going on every weekend at Grand Junction Park and Plaza. The city is also partnering to host stage productions with symphonies and playhouses. “Grand Junction will rival with any other entertainment venue in the Indy area,” Jones said. “Grand Junction is the crown jewel of the parks department. It’s our heart in the center of the com-

munity. We don’t have a town square or a place people think of as downtown. We’re creating a sense of pride - giving Westfield a community soul.” City spokeswoman Erin Verplank said as Grand Park nears completion, the focus shifts slightly to Grand Junction. Verplank said Mayor Andy Cook’s goal is to have an event at Grand Junction next year. Jones said work has been taking place on Grand Junction for the past seven years. “Our goal is to do this right,” she said. “To bring a level of entertainment to the Westfield community we’ve never had before.”

FR O M   T H E BACKSHOP There’s no one but ourselves to blame

Hold your horses It is our position that recreational horseback riding should not be allowed on the Monon Trail. On a daily basis, a combination of more than 4,000 runners, walkers, bicyclists and rollerbladers struggle to exist in harmony while navigating a mere 10 to 15 foot wide asphalt trail. The proposed addition of horseback riders to the mix will undoubtedly stir up nothing but trouble on the trail. As the cowboy saying goes, “If it has tires, testicles or hooves, you are going to have problems with it.” If a darting squirrel on the trail can cause a dog to flee, stroller to squeal and bike to skid, imagine the presence of a 1,000 pound animal in the middle of the bustling city who is happiest when running through a field and not confined to a slow gallop in a crowd. Recreational use of paved public trails is an outstanding benefit and an extremely enjoyable attribute of living in the community. It is not unreasonable to pass an ordinance clarifying reasonable speed limits, rules of the road and cleanliness for the safety of paved public trail users. It is unreasonable to complicate the issue by letting the horse out of the barn.

All in the family Commentary by Terry Anker As much as some people like to complain about our imperial city, Washington, D.C., I tend to find it, like the European capitals it is designed to emulate, much like the American ethos. It is at once aspiring to what is perhaps an unattainable, maybe even mythological, desire to live an egalitarian utopia; and, it envies the grandeur and power of monarchs represented by rows of imposing stone buildings and the grand palais of the ruling classes. The city itself is beautifully designed as a tourist attraction and a symbol of dominion. Work there can be challenging but the outsized salaries, luxurious benefits and abundant prestige more than offset the inconvenience of long commutes and extortionate cost of living. D.C.’s suburban communities in Maryland led to that state being named the wealthiest in America. But the mix of money and power, like chum in the water, tends to attract a certain kind of fish. Overhearing a conversation about government spending in a D.C. restaurant between me and a

longtime but politically opposite friend, another diner determined to participate in our polite exchange. The interloper, apparently charged by a disagreement with his much younger female companion and likely one whiskey too many, ultimately expressed his frustration by saying, “You business people are all alike - you all think that government should be run like a business.” “No,” I replied, “government should be run like we run our families.” Isn’t it possible to be fiscally responsible without lacking compassion? Isn’t it possible to match our desire to give with our ability to do so? Isn’t it as harmful to spoil as to starve? Can’t we share power with our spouse, find and even seek compromise knowing that ours is a shared course and that we are better served for traveling together?

Further proof that our government is way too big and incredibly out of control: What Were We Thinking? (Part I): No huge surprise to us, but members of Congress are routinely using campaign coffers as personal “slush funds,” according to “60 Minutes.” They’re called “Leadership PACs” to fund trips to high-roller golf courses, NFL games and other destinations – and are even personally making money off the PACs by lending to them and charging steep interest. Perhaps we shouldn’t complain about it; we’re all guilty of putting these people in office. Don’t vote for any incumbent in the coming congressional elections. Wipe Congress clean on both sides of the aisle. Maybe a fresh start will bring a fresh approach. And maybe Santa will bring us everything on our list, too? We can always hope. ••• What Were We Thinking? (Part II): Yet another strike by unionized transit workers, this time in the Bay Area of California. BART workers struck recently for the second time this year. This is what certain leaders want to bring to Indiana? If government is behind it, this is exactly what we’ll get. Vote down government-backed mass transit at your first opportunity. The private sector needs to own and operate it. ••• What Were We Thinking? (Part III): We ran into a local resident at a gathering recently, and he related to us the story of his visit, as a resident, to London’s finest hospital, which he described as high end. “Their best X-ray equipment is at least 30 years older than anything in the U.S. That’s their best. This is what socialized medicine is going to mean to us eventually.” ••• What Were We Thinking? (Part IV): Based on latest U.S. Census data, 49.2 percent of Americans benefit from at least one form of entitlement. Change!

I’m in a scary mood these days Commentary by Danielle Wilson

Two days before Halloween, and what’s the scariest thing at our house? My bad mood. I am currently struggling through my humor sixth lousy day in a row thanks to sleep deprivation, hormones and a bit of anxiety thrown in for funsies. Sunday morning was typical of the last week: I yelled at my kids on the way to church, at church, and after church, despite my numerous Hail Mary’s for patience, and then lit into to my husband for raking leaves without consulting me. Did someone just drop a house on my sister? My biggest issue is the not sleeping. I chalk this up to my “advanced maternal age” and perhaps a reduction in my thyroid meds. Stress is also contributing to my vampire-like nights, as work and chauffeur duties have become overwhelming. I wake up at 3 a.m. and can’t stop worrying about the logistics of life as a working mom. Between teaching 10 hours a day and driving four kids all of over the city every evening, I barely remember to shower. Forget about good parenting. I’ve been so exhausted by 8 p.m. that I am incapable of helping with homework or bedtime. Truly frightening. Yesterday my youngest laid this one on me: “I forgot my school folder because you weren’t here to remind me! All the other kids have mom-

mies who stay at home!” She even squeezed out a tear, the little devil. I’ve been back to work for three years now, so I can’t totally blame my job for recent grouchiness. I actually enjoy going to school every day, even if it’s just to have a space to myself that actually stays clean after I leave. However, working with 175 teenagers is exhausting; lately I’ve had little left for my own kids. Talk about the walking dead. Honestly, I’ve even reconsidered pharmaceutical assistance. A few years ago I tried Prozac to combat the moodiness, but I didn’t like the flat feeling. I wasn’t depressed, but I can’t say I was happy either. But maybe flat is better than evil. The good part is that like a werewolf, my transformation is temporary. By next week, I’ll be back to myself again. The hormones will chill, I’ll be able to catch some z’s, and life will look brighter. I just have to figure out how to survive until then without my children or Doo shipping me off to the asylum. Although, after six days of acting like the Wicked Witch of The Neighborhood, a “facility” might be the perfect place to enjoy Halloween. Peace out.

Rope a dope

Commentary by Dick Wolfsie

Imagine finding yourself stranded in the forest with no food or water. Or caught in an avalanche, freezing to death behumor neath a mountain of snow. Sounds scary, doesn’t it? You would have absolutely nothing to worry about if you were wearing your Paracord Survival Bracelet. (Also required: a cell phone, your GPS, warm blankets, a week’s supply of food and a Coleman stove.) Yes, this is the hottest thing in survival gear since the lit match. The bracelet is made of 90 feet of intricately woven thread crafted into a nifty piece of rope jewelry. The material was first used in World War II by paratroopers. The manufacturer describes it as having a “32-strand woven nylon outer sheath with an inner core of seven 2-ply yarns.” I know, I know, it sounds a lot like Charmin. Here are three uses suggested by the manufacturer: 1. Replace a broken zipper pull: Nothing would be more embarrassing than being rescued after 12 days on a deserted island and being caught with your fly open. 2. Detain a person: When you are shipwrecked in the middle of nowhere and help finally comes, isn’t that the first thing you’d think about? Who do I need to tie up? 3. Fishing Line: “Our white cord will rarely catch fish in clear water,” admits the bracelet company, “but you may have a

chance in murky water if you have stink bait and a hook.” Not a problem. A lot of hikers who forgot to bring even one protein bar have a jar of chicken guts and beef liver in their backpack. The manufacturer is concerned that people will not want to use the rope in an emergency because making it back into a bracelet is harder than solving the Rubik’s Cube with your feet. The makers of the Paracord Survival Bracelet will give you a free one if you use their product in a legitimate emergency. Simply send them the story of how you used the rope along with a photograph demonstrating the life-threatening predicament you were in. Dear Survival Bracelet Maker, My wife and I were recently cleaning the gutters on our roof when the ladder tipped over. As I helped her repel down the side of our house using your nifty piece of jewelry, I tried to get my cell phone out of my pocket to send a picture, thus qualifying for a free replacement. I was too slow but I am attaching a photo of her on the ground with two broken legs. Personally, I think this bracelet is a waste of money at $39.95. Better not safe, than sorry.

“Who was it?”

By Nate Albin

One stormy fall evening just before Halloween, Nate, J.T, and Colin were having a sleep over at Nate’s house. After playing outside, they started to watch the Arizona State – Oregon game. As they got comfy, a large boom was at the window! They ran quickly to Nate’s dad, pushing each other out of the way. “Dad! Dad! We heard a huge noise outside!” “Maybe it was the Headless Horseman,” Nate’s dad said with a deep smile. “Turn around. Go back to bed. It’s all good.” A little less rattled, the boys turned around and walked slowly back to bed. Lights out. Comfy. Asleep. CRACK! BOOM! SMASH! Awake suddenly, they ran quickly, again, to Nate’s dad, pushing each other, again, out of the way. This time, Nate’s dad wasn’t there.

“The Horror” By S. Robert Darbro “There are monsters everywhere!” gasped Linda French, her timid left hand trembling at her throat as she peered out the living room window. “Please don’t talk of the neighbors like that, sweetest,” offered her husband Edgar from behind his hunting catalog. A horrifying realization emerged slowly. “Wait,” he yelped snapping his head to glance at the wall clock. The hands of the timepiece were clawing downward like a gravedigger’s spade unearthing an unholy terror. “Oh no! It’s 5:30 p.m.! I never made it to the store to buy the candy!” Hyperventilating, he glared at the catalog, silently blaming it for his dalliance. He leaped from his chair and dashed for his coat. “Perhaps if I hurry I can return before the -” Edgar’s shallow hopes were murdered by the cold fright of the doorbell. “It’s too late! We are surrounded!” Linda shrieked. She hid her petri-

“We must go see what that is!” Nate said. “But it’s unsafe!” Colin said. “We might have this chance only once. I say we go for it!” J.T. said. They got three flashlights. And when they got outside they felt the gusts of wind push them backward. The rain was so strong it was hard to see. Luckily it was just howling wind and pounding rain. No thunder. No lightning. But if there was no thunder and no lightning, where did the ‘crack, boom and smash’ come from? The boys shined their flashlights into each other’s faces, and without saying a word, they turned and went down the muddy, slippery, steep hill into the woods. Clonk-idy. Clonk-idy. CLONK! “That might be a good sign,” Nate said very, very quietly. “Let’s keep walking!” whispered Colin. “Its 11:45!” said J.T., and the three of them turned around and started walking back up the fied eyes behind her elbow, refusing to look at the dreadfulness gathering out the window on their front step. Beyond the painted glass of the front door, ominous half-sized silhouettes swayed impatiently. Edgar knew he could never make it to the store before this motley group would cast judgment. He momentarily considered abandoning Linda and fleeing to the neighbor’s backyard tree fort. The doorbell chimed a second time, a grim toll foretelling of the coming nightmare that would soon befall their yard. Outside the door, the silhouettes had doubled. A miniature fist rapped at the glass. “Trick-or-treat, Mr. and Mrs. French. We know you are in there,” called out a disembodied and sinister pre-pubescent voice. “They know we are here!” whispered Linda hoarsely. She fell to her knees weeping. “The yolk never washes off!” Edgar made for the pantry in a hysterical gal-

muddy, slippery and very steep hill. Swoosh! Swoosh! SPLICE! The sword of the Headless Horseman brushed right past the tops of their heads. Yikes! For the minute that they had to think, they needed to remember what they’d heard about the Headless Horsemen. Think … think… think… “Hey, guys! Remember the old Disney version?” “Quick, tell us! We can’t maneuver much more!” Colin exclaimed. “We have to cross the bridge!” “The bridge is very, very, very far away. We can’t possibly make it in time!” J.T. screeched. “We will make it if we go … now! Go now!” Nate screamed. After a trip back home, they went straight to sleep. When they woke up, they found Nate’s dad in the kitchen, “Ok, Dad, we know you dressed up.” “What are you boys talking about?” lop, falling over the end table and Linda’s crocheting basket. “Don’t quit on me now, woman!” screeched Edgar in an eruption of spittle. In the pantry he tore edibles from the shelf in madness. The doorbell rang for a third time. Time was running out. At length, his sweaty hands found a grotesquely enormous tub of peanut butter that Linda had insisted on buying at the wholesale grocery mart. He wrapped his arms tightly around it, clinging to it like a life preserver. ‘Ants on a Log’ would be his salvation. Linda was in fetal position shaking from fright on the living room floor. “Get up and start cutting celery! Where’s the raisins?!?” screamed Edgar but it was already too late. As morning broke on November first, the horror of ghostly toilet paper floated like phantom death shrouds among the terrible gore of grotesquely smashed eggs upon the edifice of the French’s house and their premature Christmas decorations.

on May 29, 1913, at the Théatre des Champs-Elysées in Paris. The avant-garde nature of the work nearly caused a riot at the theater. The audience was bewildered by the outrageous costumes, strange choreography and bizarre story of pagan sacrifice. If that weren’t enough, the audience was truly tested by Stravinsky’s innovative and groundbreaking use of rhythm. In the 100 years since, its originality has influenced many composers, becoming a model for modern masters as well as one of the most recorded works in the classical repertoire. Tickets start at $20 and may be purchased at the Palladium Box Office, online at www.thecenterfortheperformingarts.org, or by phone at 843-3800. Student discounts are valid through college age.

Expert tricks, tips for costumes Commentary by Jodi Morgan

As the head of special effects makeup at Indy Scream Park, I turn regular people into creepy characters like zombies, Halloween clowns and even zombie clowns throughout the Halloween season. In my position, I tend to get a lot of questions from family and friends about how to ensure a victory at their next costume party. I thought I would share some tricks for fun costume and makeup ideas. Here are some of my most frequently asked questions: How did you learn how to do scary makeup? I took some stage makeup classes when I was at Purdue University and have taken a few special effects makeup classes, but you can learn a lot of fun makeup tricks on the Internet. There are tons of tutorials on YouTube. Where do you buy Halloween makeup? We use professional products at Indy Scream Park, but I also really like Party City. They have a huge range of reasonably priced products and makeup kits that are available year-round. You can also use regular street makeup in creative ways. There are lots of techniques that use random household products like Knox Gelatin and Elmer’s Glue. What kinds of makeup tools are best? We use a lot of brushes of all sizes for our makeup - from paint brushes to fine-tipped artist brushes - but we also use basic makeup wedges

and cotton swabs. Where is the best place to buy Halloween costumes? Again, Party City has a huge selection of ready-made costumes, but there are great ideas on the Internet. I love the website www.spoonful.com. They have lots of great costume ideas, including punny costumes. My favorite this year? Cover yourself with foliage from the dollar store, add a string of pearls and a name tag that says, “My Name is Barbara” and you have … wait for it … Barbara Bush. How long does it take to do Halloween makeup? It can take as long as you want or need. At Indy Scream Park, our team has to make up 150 actors in two and a half hours. We have three to five minutes on average for each person. Don’t be afraid to wipe it off and start over if you don’t like how it looks. Baby wipes are awesome for taking off makeup. As I always tell my makeup students, start with less. You can always add more but it is really hard to take makeup away after it is applied. I hope that I gave you some good ideas. Have a fun, safe, amazing Halloween! Jodi Morgan is head of special effects makeup at Indy Scream Park, 5211 S. New Columbus Rd., Anderson. For more information, visit www. indyscreampark.com.

This event will fitness bring together girls, their families and the community to celebrate the end of the three-month long characterbuilding program.

Top Investor threats list expanded news@currentinwestfield.com

Indiana Secretary of State Connie Lawson has expanded the annual listing of nefarious financial products, practices finances and services that threaten to trap unsuspecting investors to include lurking dangers facing small business owners. “With the delayed rollout of rules required by the JOBS Act, investors and small business owners alike must be on heightened alert for questionable Lawson investment offers and services,” Lawson stated. Lawson said she is worried the recent lifting of an 80-year-old ban on the advertising of private offerings, mandated by the JOBS Act, will lead to greater abuse by unscrupulous promoters. The implementation of the JOBS Act also has created opportunities for unregulated third parties to provide ancillary services. “Whether you are using a crowdfunding portal or an accredited investor aggregator, it is important to do your due diligence and to understand that use of an unregulated third party to provide such services does not change your obligations under federal and state securities laws,” Lawson stated. “Investors are not alone in their potential to be scammed. Using a fraudulent portal means both the business and the investor stand to lose.”

Know more – The 2013 list of the Top 10 financial products and practices that threaten to trap unwary investors and small business owners include: Persistent threats - private offerings, real estate investment schemes, high-yield investment and Ponzi schemes, affinity fraud, scam artists using self-directed IRAs to mask fraud, and risky oil and gas drilling programs; New investor threats – proxy trading accounts and digital currency; and New small business threats – capitalraising pitfalls and unregulated third-party service providers.

The Secretary of State’s Securities Division provides detailed background information about those who sell securities or give investment advice, and about the products being offered. “You wouldn’t trust your health to an unlicensed doctor, so why jeopardize your financial health by trusting your hard-earned money to an unlicensed broker or investment adviser?” Lawson stated.

No place for ‘between you and I’ Commentary by Jordan Fischer

and thus begins a prepositional phrase. We know that prepositional phrases require object pronouns like “him,” “us,” “them” or, in this case, “me.” The tendency for some people to misuse “I” and “me” is due to a lack of confidence about subject-object pronoun rules. For example, a person might say “Jimmy and me went to the park.” They then get corrected (“It’s ‘Jimmy and I!’”), but the correction isn’t accompanied by an explanation of when it is appropriate to use “me.” The idea that “me” is somehow improper grammar gets internalized and “I” starts popping up where an object pronoun is needed. Reflexive pronouns, as we talked about last week with “myself,” often experience a similar misperception as more “formal” pronoun choices. To help build up that confidence, remember this: Prepositional phrases need objects, and that means object pronouns. Throw “between you and I” in the refuse heap. While you are there, if you see any other grammar garbage lying around, shoot me an e-mail. I’m always hunting down column ideas.

Question: “Dear Jordan, I’m laughing again about your advice to ‘avoid the double is unless you’re writing dialogue for a show about organized crime.’ Grammar grammar guy Guy, please never leave us who are chronically dismayed by the language lightweights, nimwits or numskulls. Once upon a time, I thought the cure could be listening to a recording of correct grammar versus bad grammar. Recently, I heard a highly successful leader misuse ‘between you and me’ (he said “I’). Is there ever a proper usage for ‘between you and I?’ (Barbara Purvis, Noblesville) Answer: Barbara, thanks for writing in. I like the idea of listening to correctional grammar recordings. I have noticed – and perhaps you have too – that hearing or reading grammar used incorrectly seems to have much more “stickiness” in the brain than proper grammar. After years of editing, there are words I never had problems with before that I now constantly have to double check, just because I’ve seen them written incorrectly so many times. Jordan Fischer is a contributing At any rate, what we have in the phrase columnist for Current Publishing. “between you and I” is a simple subject-object To ask Jordan a grammar question, write him at rjfische@gmail.com. pronoun mismatch, and it’s one that is always BFTH_i_am_AB_quarter_pg_ad_10_22_Layout incorrect. The word “between” is a preposition, 1 10/21/13 4:33 PM Page 1

Step back into 19th Century in Cuba Commentary by Donald Knebel With the increased availability of authorized “people to people” travel to Cuba, Americans seeking picturesque villages can find them in this hemisphere. Trinidad, Cuba, a UNESCO World Heritage Site faTravel mous for its Old World charm, also provides an opportunity to observe the practices of a mysterious New World religion. Trinidad was founded on Dec. 23, 1514, more than 50 years before St. Augustine, the United States’ oldest city. Trinidad became rich trading in sugar and slaves needed on nearby plantations. A well-preserved central square surrounded by redtiled mansions reflects that golden age. With the abolition of slavery, the trade that had supported Trinidad ended and Trinidad clocks seem to have stopped in the nineteenth century. Pastel-colored homes have open windows with only metal bars separating the room inside from the street. Donkeys pull carts down narrow cobblestone streets, pigs roast on wooden spits turned by hand and guitar players sing more for themselves than for tourists. Slaves from western Africa carried with them the worship of gods (orishas) representing many aspects of their lives. Forced by Spanish masters to practice Roman Catholicism, they cleverly

merged their ancestral beliefs with those of Christianity. The resulting syncretic religion is called Santeria (saint worship) because practitioners worshipped the statues of saints, which they had re-identified as their orishas. Many Cubans still call themselves Catholics but practice Santeria at home, some with sacred African images painted on the backs of images of saints. Some of the practices of Santeria are closed to outsiders, but others are on display in Trinidad’s unique Casa Templo de Santeria Yemaya, a combination museum and house of worship. A blue and white altar pays homage to Yemaya, a goddess of the sea looking a lot like the Virgin Mary. A cigar-smoking Babalawo will, if properly motivated, explain the non-secret aspects of Santeria when not out back conducting services, including sacrifices, for believers. If you want to see a colorful hillside village where tourists are the primary reminder of the 21st century, you have many choices. If you want to experience Santeria, to the extent an outsider ever can, Trinidad may be the best choice. Don Knebel is a local resident who works for Barnes & Thornburg LLP.

ONE STOP WEDDING SHOP At Salon 01 we pride ourselves on being a full service salon. We can fix the botched manicure you got down the street, turn your bed head into beautiful and give you a number of spa services that rival those at the top spas in the nation on any given day. So, imagine what we can do for you on your “big day.”

1-HOUR SWEDISH OR DEEP TISSUE MASSAGE WITH OUR NEWEST TEAM MEMBER ANTHONY! EXPIRES 10/31/13

We have a variety of services and packages that have been specifically tailored to brides and wedding parties, and while we’d love to have you in our salon, we can also pack up our tools and come to you for all of your wedding day desires.

COLORS OF FALL Normally your fall wardrobe may consist of conventional autumn hues, chocolate and steel gray, but why not spice it up this season?

Each of the stylists on our special occasion team are trained in the art of updo’s and styling. They attend classes in and out of the salon to stay on top of the latest trends in wedding hair and makeup.

According to fashiontribes.typepad.com, you should think of colors such as blue iris or royal lilac when adding pieces to your autumn wardrobe. Other colors that can add some punch are a deep oxblood red and green.

Additionally, Salon 01 is different than most other salons because we have enough members on our team to accommodate wedding parties of any size. Our stylists and estheticians know how important it is for everything to be flawless on your wedding day, so achieving the perfect look for you is not something we want to leave until the last minute. For this reason, every bride who chooses our salon for their wedding can receive both a hair and a makeup trial prior to their wedding day.

Make sure you are also updating your accessory wardrobe. Accessories are another great way to add color to your wardrobe without breaking the bank. Try incorporating bracelets or earrings in a bright turquoise blue. Copper and Gold are also always a sure bet.

Salon 01 does nearly 100 weddings per year, and from this experience, we have come to understand several things. For instance, an hour of peace on the massage table for the mother of the bride (AKA an hour without her daughter’s day-of demands for crisis control) really does make a difference. Also, you will realize that, yes, the groom’s hair will need a touch-up after he Also, the groom's hair may need a touchup after he tries to save some cash by going elsewhere for a really cheap haircut, but got what he paid for. This is the simple stuff that Salon 01 can take care of so you don’t have to.

WEAR IT: NUDE NAILS Nude colored nails are a great way to look polished without being overdone. We recommend finding a color that is slightly darker than your natural skin tone. Before you start, be sure that any leftover polish has been removed so you have a nice, clean slate. Prep the surrounding nail area with a cuticle cream to clear up unwanted hangnails, then swipe clean with a touch of nail polish remover. File nails in a “squoval” shape; meaning square with rounded corners. Be sure to use a base coat and top coat to get longer lasting wear. Rather not mess around with all the prep? Schedule your appointment for a manicure at Salon 01. Choose from our regular natural nail manicures or a Shellac manicure with gel polish that lasts up to 2 weeks with no chipping!

Schedule your consultation now, or contact our talented Bridal Director, Sarah, at bridal@salon01.com for more information.

Keep fresh this fall! And, of course, nothing enhances your wardrobe like a fresh haircut and dimensional color!

Replacing kitchen peninsula with new island

Commentary by Larry Greene

Existing Kitchen: This home is located in the College Park addition on the northwest side of Indianapolis. Their 1970’s kitchen lacked the functionality modern Blueprint for families are looking for improvement these days. After four and a half years of living with outdated appliances and poor flow, the owners were ready to remodel. “The kitchen was very outdated, and the peninsula cut things off,” stated the homeowner. “There was very little cabinetry storage.” Design Phase: The design team was focused on functionality. The designer stated, “Center islands are preferred now over peninsulas, as they allow for movement throughout the space rather than pooling people into one area. Storage is also a large consideration. Filling available space with well-designed cabinetry easily increases storage capacity.” New Island: The new island needed to compliment the footprint of the original long and narrow kitchen space. By curving the end of the island where the kitchen table was previously located, the homeowners were able to have both an eat-in kitchen and a large work area. Extending the island also added more base cabinetry for their storage needs. Perimeter Cabinets: Salvaging the original perimeter cabinets required some creativity, as

Before the specifications for modern appliances have changed over the last 40 years. The trim carpenter modified the cabinet under the new cooktop to fit a 27-inch wall oven. The original cabinets were painted and updated hardware was installed. The desk area was replaced with the refrigerator and surrounding cabinetry. According to the homeowner, “The desk area trapped all of our mail and junk. I really like all of the new storage space.” Final Result: New appliances, a striking glass tile backsplash, granite countertops and undercabinet lighting provide the finishing touches for this newly configured kitchen. Like many other

After homeowners, it is the little things that make these homeowners the happiest. “My favorite part is the outlet at the end of the island. Being able to have that extra prep space in the kitchen has made using my kitchen so much more enjoyable.”
