OUR VIEWS

It is our position Hamilton County will be wellserved by the re-election of Mayors Jim Brainard in Carmel, John Distlear in Noblesville and Andy Cook in Westfield. After a robust discussion over the past few months, we voters ultimately made our choice last week stating emphatically existing leadership (at least for the largest majority) was on-target. We concur. Hamilton County continues to be a beacon of economic growth and distinction the categories of quality of life, education and stability. These men can take their share of the credit. All have made bold steps to position our communities to take advantage of a growing trend in population and wealth distribution. However, this election cycle did not pass without raising several important questions to be considered and resolved during the coming four years. Will there be a taxpayer reckoning for the spending required to realize the ambitious dreams of these leaders? Will, as the saying goes, they come if we build it? The world is a rapidly changing and evolving place – perhaps now more than ever. Therefore, we intend to continue to expect real answers to hard questions, we believe we have the right leadership for the job.

Training facility

It is our position the potential for the construction of a single law enforcement and fire personnel training facility by the neighboring communities of Hamilton County is welcome. Ongoing training for all of the law and fire personnel is imperative to allow them to keep up with new technology and equipment. The lack of a local facility requires the personnel to obtain instruction at other locations, and may involve payment by the cities to other entities for training.  The development is unique because it is apparent a genuine effort is being pursued to accomplish something uniformly beneficial to the communities, without the frequent tug-of-war which has resulted in duplication of efforts and diluting of the effects of actions in each city. A single facility can jointly use the contribution of funding and personnel from the participating cities, and all personnel will have access to the best instructors from all of the units. The completed center should be able to include more equipment to enhance the experience of the personnel because of the cooperation. We strongly support this budding effort, and hope the communities will throw their visible support behind the project as it matures.

Retirement not currently in Basile’s vocabulary

Salutes Our Veterans

This is some “retirement” Frank Basile is enjoying. The former senior vice president of the Gene B. Glick Co., as you might know, has been the acting president and chief executive officer for The Center for the Performing Arts since late July. Basile is a man of many passions, chief among them travel, dining, authorship and, now, seeing to it that the Center rises to the all-important next level. It strikes us that the native Louisianan actually is happily un-retired, if you will. He has the staying power – and the blessings of his wife, Katrina, a Realtor - to work consecutive 14-hour days. Too, together they funded an eponymous gift shop, which opens Saturday in the Center; that underscores an even heavier commitment to the facility. In his workweek, when it’s time to grab dinner, Katrina picks him up and they roll away to sample the ample gastronomic fare in the area – and then it’s back to the office. He could be off on another “adventure of a lifetime” in a remote outpost on the other side of the world, yet he has no complaints. There will be time for that. In the interim, it’s strictly about making the Center all that it can be, and our community should be grateful to Basile for stepping up and engineering the mission.

At Riverwalk Commons we salute you and thank you for your service.

Brian Kelly & Steve Greenberg ••• We’re confused about the Occupy Wall Street movement, and here’s why: We’re sure you’re well aware of the whole Solyndra scandal, which ultimately will cost taxpayers $535 million. Back in February, the Energy Department agreed to restructure Solyndra’s loan that allowed $75 million from a fund controlled by a major Barack Obama supporter to be ranked ahead of the government (Read: taxpayers) in the event of bankruptcy. Isn’t this the ultimate in cronyism? So, why aren’t the occupiers protesting outside the White House?

This November, we are proud to offer veterans and their surviving spouses special benefits. Veterans who sign a lease with our community in November, 2011 will receive*: • 5% price reduction for the life of the lease and we will waive the move-in fee • Assistance applying for Veterans Aid & Attendance Program • The Five Star Senior Living lifestyle you deserve

*Does not include levels of care services. Normal yearly rent increases will apply. Must take financial possession of your apartment home by November 30th.

Lifetime stewardship Commentary By Terry Anker Time may heal all wounds, but it wreaks havoc on infrastructure. For many years, Carolyn and I lived in a house built in the 1930s. Taking shape during the depression, the home was built at a time when craftsman were, perhaps because of a lack of competition for their skills, able to focus on one project at a time. Plus given then economic conditions, folks expected things to last. By the time we took possession of the home it was a senior citizen and things were in need of repair. We tackled projects in order of significance in an ongoing and almost perpetual way. We completed infrastructure (think septic) with cosmetic (think interior paint) imagining every good meal includes nutrition and taste. Now, we are in a house built during a boom time – the late 1990s. Builders could barely keep up with demand. When we made the move, we needed a house ready to operate without failure. Our youngest was in diapers,

business was busy and my mom had just sold her condo and moved in with us. We were not ready for a home of monthly surprises. But now, again time is asserting itself; and I’ve learned. Lifetime shingles last about 12 years. Lifetime windows last about a decade (if one is lucky) and lifetime-manufactured siding lasts even less. We’ve learned the lesson of the fine print – and of folks not standing behind their products. But more than anything, I suppose we’ve learned there is not life without stewardship. Even as we hoped to avoid caretaking, we are reminded humans consume: Carpets wear out and refrigerators fail after too many ice cubes. But instead of consumers, should we think of ourselves as stewards?

We’ve learned the lesson of the fine print – and of folks not standing behind their products. We’ve learned there is not life without stewardship.

The tales of twins

COMMENTARY By Danielle Wilson I had the pleasure of participating in a twins’ panel the other night, both as a twin myself and as a mother of twins. Most of the questions pertained to the unique circumstances of raising multiples, but there were a few relevant to parenting in general. So I thought I’d share my responses with you: 1. “Now you’re back to work, do you miss your kids?” No. Nor have I ever. Even when I went back eight weeks postpartum after my first born. I do experience guilt, almost on a daily basis. I occasionally have emotional breakdowns in my car over whether I’m a horrible mom for wanting to spend eight to hours away from short people, but I can’t honestly say I miss my kids. Bottom line? I’m a better mom when I don’t have to focus my attention on nutritional lunches, laundry apartheid, and choosing which day we’re going to contract pink eye from the Children’s Museum. 2. “With four kids, how do you balance all the activities and still have time for family?” We don’t. We try our best, but during soccer season, we rarely eat a meal together. We even limit them to one sport/class per season, but the schedule still is out of control. Having kids in all age groups where in

multiple practices and games a week are the norm, we are chalking up serious mileage. But studies show busy, engaged kids are less likely to end up on drugs or pregnant, so we’re sticking with the crazy. 3. “Do you ever get to spend one-on-one time with your children?” Sometimes, yes. But generally, no. We dedicate the month of January to taking each child out for a special “afternoon” of their design, like Wendy’s goodness followed by Laser Tag madness. If I’m not already asleep by 8:30, I will occasionally crawl in bed with a kid

and read for about 10 minutes. I’m not super proud of this lack of parental attention, but no one needs therapy yet, so they can’t be suffering too badly. There you have it. Enough “Danielle Wilson” fodder for you to make it through the week, whether you’re criticizing or commiserating. Peace out! Danielle Wilson is a Carmel resident and contributing columnist. You may e-mail her at danielle@ currentincarmel.com.

Craft Bazaar brings holiday spirit for band By Lindsay Eckert Lindsay@youarecurrent.com Band boosters for Westfield High School are bringing in the holiday season with a bang. The boosters will be offering a holiday double feature with shopping and music for the third annual Craft Bazaar. Craft Bazaar Coordinator Pam Williams said the boosters wanted a new twist on fundraising. Williams said the boosters explored different options such as a car show, but decided that, with the school’s massive space options, a holiday event was the best fit for the community. “We wanted a sustainable event that didn’t involve selling door-to-door. We wanted a new way to raise money in a way that was fun and different after talking with families we chose the bazaar and ran with it,” Williams said. “The first year was far more successful than we could have imagined and the event has grown every year.” The first bazaar began with 60 vendors and raised $1,500, all going to the band boosters’ general budget, which covers a variety of expenses, such as purchasing music, hiring additional instructors and paying for transportation and entry fees for competitions. Three craft bazaars later, 150 vendors will fill Westfield High School Multi-Purpose Instructional Facility Saturday, with a goal to raise $7,000. Last year’s bazaar raised $6,000. Williams, a mother of three daughters who have been active in the band, said the fundraiser is essential for students to afford participation in

the music program. “I believe in opportunities for kids, and even though we live in an affluent area, not everyone is affluent,” Williams said as she described why she’s passionate about the bazaar. “We are raising money for everyone to be able to participate and keep the fees lower.” Although the new pay-to-play policies showing up at schools are a fairly recent development, Williams said, “The band has been pay-to-play forever.” The WHS band fee is $325 per year for every student and Williams said the bazaar helps keep the fees substantially lower than other local band programs. According to Williams, most band fees range from $500 to $600. Fees for Carmel High School band can even reach $1000 per student. The band encompasses many genres of music and performance styles, WHS band travels throughout the state for competitions featuring the marching band, winter guard, and percussion and jazz ensembles. The band provides the soundtrack to school spirit at every sporting event and the annual high school musical, and bazaar visitors will get an all-day holiday show Saturday. The band will be playing holiday tunes from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the bazaar with $1 admission. “The $1 admission gives us the opportunity to count how many people come through the door,” Williams said. The band is also selling bows at Westfield in Lights.

At court, never be sarcastic or rude to the court, its staff, or opposing counsel. Do not sigh or make negative facial expressions when other witnesses are testifying because the court is taking into account the demeanor of the parties at all times. If questioned about a clear mistake that you have made, own up to the mistake. Do not rationalize, instead make it clear that you’ve learned from the mistake, and it will not be repeated. Give due credit to your estranged spouse when warranted but point out issues that concern you regarding their parenting style or judgment. Finally, make a reasonable request to the court. Do not assume that you need to ask for more than you believe is fair because the other party will do the same and the court will split the difference. Courts tend to appreciate the party who proposes practical and reasonable solutions to the parties’ differences. Remember, these suggestions are not meant to be legal advice. You should consult an attorney to discuss the specifics of your situation. If you have questions, you may contact our firm at 317-569-0770 or www.hardenjacksonlaw.com.

Be prepared for court by requesting that your attorney give you an outline of questions that she will ask you at court. Meet with your attorney prior to the hearing as a practice run before court. Have your attorney play the role of opposing counsel and ask you questions that opposing counsel may pose to you at court.

First, you must always remember that every action that you take in your divorce proceeding will be judged by the court. Therefore, err on the side of caution and do not behave in a manner that might be viewed unfavorably by the judge if spun the right way by opposing counsel. The easiest way to follow this advice is always put your children’s interests first. For example, if your estranged spouse wants to exchange parenting time weekends for a family reunion, be flexible to allow your children the opportunity to spend time with extended family. Do so even if you know the favor will not be returned when you need to rearrange parenting time. It is the right thing to do. Plus, the judge will notice that you and not your estranged spouse have placed the children’s interests above all else.

DISPATCHES » Are your shoes hurting you? – Many women think flats are a safer bet than heels, but shoes that are totally flat, with no cushioning or arch support, can pose problems as well. Not only do super-thin soles fail to absorb the shock of your feet hitting the ground, but a lack of arch support can lead to your feet rolling inward, stretching ligaments and tendons up to the knee. If you start to sag through your arch, your ankle is next, and with continued stress it could drive your knee out. “And your hip then has to respond,” a doctor told Health.com. “The problems go right up your body.” -www.health.com » Stop grazing – A few years back, “grazing” came into vogue in dieting circles. But a study published in 2010 found that people who eat low-calorie diets feel more satisfied when they eat three times a day compared to six times a day, suggesting that mini meals aren’t beneficial for appetite control. Eating constantly throughout the day increases

salivary secretion and the production of digestive enzymes that stimulate the gut. Instead, divide your calories around three meals and one or two snacks, going at least three hours and up to four or five without eating. The goal is to eat when you’re hungry but not starving, which reduces the risk of overeating. -www.fitbie.com » New allergy shots on horizon? – New methods of allergy immunotherapy were discussed at last week’s annual scientific meeting of the American College of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology. Potential new techniques include: 1. Intralymphatic immunotherapy, which involves injecting allergens into a lymph node. Initial research shows that this approach provides a longer-lasting and more effective response, suggesting the dose and length of treatment could be shortened. 2. Epicutaneous immunotherapy, which involves lightly scraping a patient’s skin and then applying a patch that delivers the allergens through the bloodstream. Accelerated allergy immunotherapy and the cost benefits of immunotherapy were also discussed at the meeting. -HealthDay News

Interesting questions of the week COMMENTARY By Barry Eppley Q: I have gained 40 pounds since I had a hysterectomy seven years ago. My stomach is extremely disproportional to the rest of my body. I am interested in fat-injection treatments. Will insurance cover any type of non-surgical treatment to reduce my stomach fat? What is your input on this fat treatment method? A: Insurance will not cover stomach bulge removal, no matter the method of treatment. Lipodissolve, a type of fat injection, is a blend of phosphatidylcholine and deoxycholic acid solution. Although it can help reduce small collections of fat, it won’t be effective for a fat collection. The injection has lost its popularity as it proved ineffective for abdominal fat collections many people want to reduce. I still use it occasionally but only as a treatment for small postoperative liposuction ‘high spots’. You are seeking a nonsurgical solution to a surgical problem and it does not exist.  Q: I am 38 years old and have had noticeable nasolabial folds for the past several years. I have used injectable fillers, specifically Juvederm Ultra XC, with some improvement. I also had my

cheeks injected. However, less than six months after the injections, my nasolabial folds are back. What are some more permanent options for someone my age? A: Deep nasolabial folds at a young age can be a very difficult problem. Some facial shapes and skin types are simply more prone to them and, if this is an issue at the young age of 38, it is going to continue to be a long-term facial issue. Injectable fillers for the nasolabial folds offer both advantages and disadvantages. Their advantage is they work when properly placed. Although most injections work the same, some simply last longer at a greater price. More expensive options can work instantaneously without significant problems. However, the injection’s results aren’t permanent. You are too young to justify surgeries such as a cheek lift and surgery isn’t a permanent solution. It would be best to continue with injectable fillers even though they have limited duration.

Insurance will not cover stomach bulge removal, no matter the method of treatment.

DISPATCHES » Business climate ranks sixth – For the fourth time in as many years, Indiana’s business climate ranked in the top 10 nationally in Site Selection magazine’s 2011 business climate rankings. Feedback from a survey of national real estate executives and a review of Indiana’s economic development record earned the state recognition as the sixth best place for business in the U.S., up two spots from in 2010. This comes a little more than a month after Area Development magazine rated Indiana’s business climate best in the Midwest and fifth overall in the U.S., according to a survey of national site selection consultants. » Tax strategy seminar – Somerset CPAs will host a seminar on year-end tax strategies for contractors Dec. 1, 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m., at the Somerset Conference Center, 3925 River Crossing Parkway, Indianapolis.

For details or to register, visit www.somersetcpas.com. » Women becoming less ambitious? – A survey conducted by More magazine found that 40 percent of women said they’d take less money for more flexibility. And 43 percent of these women (ages 35 to 60) considered themselves less ambitious than

Business angles learned from baldness COMMENTARY By David Cain I’ve been without hair on my head so long I don’t even remember what it’s like to brush my hair. However, I’m reminded every morning at my house when screams of terror echo in the kitchen as my girls get their hair brushed. Tangles from a night of tossing and turning, which is a likely outcome when your bedtime is before nine. Although they are not big fans of having their hair brushed, they love to brush hair. They beg to sit behind their mother and brush her hair for hours. Part of it is getting even, I suppose, but part of it is simply the joy of brushing. On Sunday, the girls had been brushing for a good 30 minutes when their mother had had enough. She said, “No more!” and sent the girls on their way, brush in hand. They were upset. I wanted to help so I jokingly offered to the youngest, “Jacquie, you can brush my hair.” She

stomped her feet and shot me her angry face. Her sister chimed in, “Yeah Jacquie, you can brush Daddy’s hair,” also in a playful way. Jacquie reluctantly agreed and marched toward me with a hairbrush in hand. She walked up, with the angry face still on display, to brush my hair. She looked directly at me and said with a menacing tone, “Okay Daddy, roll up your sleeves!” I’d not considered my offer from that perspective. I guess it’s true you should look at things with fresh eyes. I’ll be making it a point to change my perspective and look for new angles on the same old problems. It appears just when you think there are no options, there are options. David Cain works at MediaSauce, a digital media and online marketing company in Carmel.

Updating 1990 master bath COMMENTARY By Larry Greene ORIGINAL MASTER BATH: This home was built in 1990 in the Springmill Crossing Subdivision on the west side of Carmel. The master bath was the second bathroom of two to get remodeled. The homeowner noted “We decided to remodel the master bathroom mainly because it was old and outdated. We didn’t like the carpet in the bathroom. We needed a bigger shower. It just needed to be updated.” The homeowners weren’t fond of the large garden tub. “We had a large cultured-marble jetted tub in the master bath. When the kids were little, it was perfect. But our children are now 28 and 24.” FAVORITE FEATURES: When asked what they like most about their new bathroom, their reply was “Everything”. They added, “We like the big shower, the square-shaped vessel sinks, the tiled floor and the enlarged shower. We have heated floors, too. It’s such a change from what we had before. It feels like a spa in there now. The rain showerhead feels great. We have great water pressure too.” TUB & SHOWER DETAILS: The old tub and

After shower areas were totally gutted and new framing for the new tub decking, shower and shower storage niches was installed. A new Kohler 60x32 Archer drop in air tub was installed with a Delta Vero brushed nickel tub filler. The new shower includes a combined stationary/handheld Delta faucet with a diverter and Delta brushed nickel ceiling-mounted square rain head faucet. The shower area was finished off with a 3/8” heavy glass frameless enclosure with brushed nickel hardware. Before FINAL RESULT: The homeowner commented, “Our kids came home to see the new remodeled bathroom and they think it looks like a hotel bathroom.”

DISPATCHES » Tinsel and Tails – The Humane Society for Hamilton County will host its sixth annual Tinsel and Tails Holiday Petacular on Thursday, 6 p.m., at the Ritz Charles in Carmel. Tinsel and Tails is one of the Humane Society’s largest fundraisers of the year, and funds raised will help cover the cost of the thousands of abandoned, unwanted, injured and sick animals that come to the HSHC every year. Tickets are $75 per individual, $300 per half table of four or $600 for a full table. To order tickets or for more information, go to www. TinselandTails.com, or call Jennifer Judd at 219-3324. » Thanksgiving stew for dogs – Chicken soup cooked with spinach, green beans, mushrooms and beets makes a great treat and top dressing for regular dog food. A bit of garlic for flavor is fine, too, as it contains vitamin B. Just don’t overdo as too much of onion or garlic can cause anemia in some dogs. -www.pawnation.com

COMMENTARY By John Mikesell Arm yourself with these practical pet care tips: Consider the commitment - Think about what you are getting yourself into before getting a pet. This is a long-term commitment. Pets are 100 percent dependent on you to provide a healthy and happy life for them. Ask yourself if they fit in your current lifestyle. What changes or sacrifices are you willing to make to properly care for them? There is also a financial responsibility to keeping your pets healthy and veterinary bills aren’t cheap. Pet proof your home - Owners should take pre-emptive measures. Move household chemicals, medications, plants and decorative pieces to hard-to-reach locations. Keep your shoes tucked away from

puppy teeth and incorporate scratching posts in your home for cats. Excerise preparedness - Microchip your pets, obtain updated identification tags and create an emergency plan.Make a list of emergency phone numbers and keep a pet kit in a waterproof container. Have a high quality probiotic on hand. They are great for digestive problems bound to happen. Stress from being in a new home can cause diarrhea and probiotics work great for it. Spay and neuter your pets - It is better for your pet’s health. Unspayed females can suffer from a uterus infection and mammary tumors. Males can develop testicular prostate inflammation, infections or cancer. Implement a routine - Keep the first few days of excitement for a new pet parent to a minimum.

Practice early socialization - The critical socialization period for puppies lasts from about three to 12 weeks of age. Kittens are most receptive to socialization between the ages of two and seven weeks. I suggest leaving your puppy with its mother for at least eight weeks. Provide a healthy diet - Don’t underestimate the importance of good nutrition. Contol your pet’s food intake. Obesty in pets is just has bad for pets as it is for humans. Focus on health - Find a like-minded veternarian. A healthy pet is a happy pet. Check with your local pet store professional for tips on food and treats for your dogs and cats.
