Around town Rotary Club volunteers at Midwest Food Bank COMMUNITY
Commentary by Ken Kingshill The Westfield Rotary Club recently spent a day volunteering at the Midwest Food Bank. In lieu of our regular Tuesday noon meeting, we met at the food bank on the south side of Indianapolis and donated our time and labor. We volunteer several times each year. As usual, it was a very rewarding experience. Midwest Food Bank’s mission is to gather large food donations from nationwide corporations and distribute them to social service organizations, as well as national disaster sites, at no charge. In order to accomplish that mission, they are in constant need of volunteer labor. We arrived at about 8 a.m. After a brief orientation and overview of what we would be doing, it was off to work. We lifted, pushed, pulled, and generally strained. There was much loading of boxes onto trucks and into vans. A representative of the food bank would lead a person from the customer social service group along a long row of pallets describing what each pallet contained and how many were available. We would follow along and lift the requested number of boxes onto a rolling cart. When that cart was full, we loaded the haul into the customer organization’s vehicle. It moved along with the precision and efficiency of a well-oiled manufactur-

ing plant assembly line. The neat part of the experience was the opportunity we had to work alongside our fellow Rotarians and bond with each other outside the context of our regular, weekly luncheon meetings. There’s something about shared hard labor that helps you get to know someone better. When our shift was over, we were served lunch. It was good, homemade comfort food and it really hit the spot. The afternoon shift arrived and simply repeated what we had done in the morning, except
they ate lunch before they worked. Check out Midwest Food Bank’s Web site at www.midwestfoodbank.org. They provide an easy opportunity for you or your organization to participate in a few hours of community service. And they sincerely appreciate it.

Community Health Network launches Indiana’s first exclusive local affiliation with MD Anderson Cancer Network firstname.lastname@example.org
Community Health Network announced on Nov. 15 that Community Hospital North and Community Hospital East will become affiliates of MD Anderson Cancer Network, a program of The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center. This collaboration will provide certified physicians at these two Community hospitals with access to evidence-based guidelines, treatment plans and concordance studies developed by MD Anderson experts. These are diseasespecific guidelines for cancer treatment, cancer prevention, early detection and follow-up care, bringing new hope to local cancer patients by using treatment guidelines developed by a national leader in cancer care. For nine of the past 11 years, including 2012, MD Anderson has ranked No. 1 in cancer care in the “Best Hospitals” survey published by U.S. News & World Report. “This is a game changer for our network,” said Community Health Network President and CEO Bryan Mills. “By teaming up with MD Anderson Cancer Network, we’re combining the best of what we provide locally with
the world-renown expertise of MD Anderson. Professionals in the medical field know the MD Anderson name very well, as it’s the gold standard for cancer care. Through our exclusive local affiliation, we’ll help to raise the standard of cancer care in Central Indiana.” Community oncologists now certified by MD Anderson Cancer Network will initially treat cancer patients at Community Hospital North and Community Hospital East. Plans are to seek MD Anderson Cancer Network certification of cancer centers at Community Hospital Anderson, Community Howard Regional Health, and at Community Hospital South. “Community Health Network has a long tradition of providing exceptional health care in Central Indiana. We’re excited about this new relationship, which will further enhance patient care by adding MD Anderson expertise,” said Bill Murphy, M.D., MD Anderson Physicians Network chairman. “Together, we’ll ensure that patients across Indiana have access to the highest quality cancer care available.”

WWS named to annual AP District Honor Roll email@example.com Westfield Washington Schools is one of 539 school districts nationwide that has been honored by the College Board with placement on the prestigious Advanced Placement District Honor Roll. WWS made the honor roll for Westfield High School’s increasing access to AP courses while improving the percentage of students earning college credit by scoring a 3 or higher on AP exams. “This recognition underscores the focus and commitment our high school teachers and staff have on building a program that prepares all students for success,” said WHS Principal Stacy McGuire. “We are focused on the day after graduation. We want McGuire all students to be college and career ready.” In a short period of time, WHS went from a handful of AP courses to establishing an AP program that prepares more students for AP success, provides AP teachers with professional development, and utilizes assessment data to inform continuous improvement. WHS currently offers 21 AP courses, three of which were added for the 2012-2013 school year. Since 2008, WHS has seen the number of students taking AP exams increase from 151
Inclusion in the AP District Honor Roll is based on the following criteria: • Examination of three years of AP data, from 2010 to 2012; • Increase in participation in/access to AP by at least 4 percent in large districts, at least 6 percent in medium districts and at least 11 percent in small districts; • A steady or increasing percentage of exams taken by African American, Hispanic/Latino and American Indian/ Alaska Native students; and • Performance levels maintained or improved when comparing the percentage of students in 2012 scoring a 3 or higher to those in 2010, or the school has already attained a performance level in which more than 70 percent of the AP students are scoring a 3 or higher. to 467 last year. During the same period, the number of exams taken increased from 187 to 710 and the number of students earning a 3 or higher went from 69 to 295. “Our success is a direct result of the district’s vision and the high school’s leadership in three areas: allowing more students access and success in the classroom and on the examination; increasing teacher professional development; and developing a program of academic rigor across all disciplines and course work,” McGuire said.

COMMUNITY Education Voter turnout good at WIS Mock Presidential Election By Tenna Pershing • firstname.lastname@example.org Westfield Intermediate School had a 63 percent voter turnout for its Mock Presidential Election held on Nov. 6. In the mock election, Mitt Romney won with 68 percent of the vote and Barack Obama had 32 percent. This is the fifth mock election fifth grade teacher Myrna Griffin-Molter has used to teach not only her students, but also the entire school about the election process. Students had to register to vote a week prior to the election. On Election Day, they reported to one of six polling sites to vote. If students had not properly completed the registration or failed to register, they were not allowed to vote. If they were at the wrong polling site, they were directed to the correct site. Students wearing Barack Obama and Mitt Romney masks roamed the hallways escorted by “body guards.” “It is a great way for students to be involved and learn firsthand the different aspects of voting and the election,” said Griffin-Molter. Griffin-Molter started the mock election in

Meet your teacher: Jeff Crist Grade/Subject at what school: Sixth grade math, Westfield Intermediate School Number of years teaching: 11 Background/Schooling (college & high school): Westfield High School; B.S. Elementary Education, Purdue University, West Lafayette; M.A. Educational Supervision and Leadership, Ball State University, Muncie. Why did you become a teacher? I’ve always enjoyed working with kids. As a Westfield graduate, I have many great memories from school. Many of those memories stem from teachers who not only made their classrooms fun, but also showed genuine interest in each of their students. I want to be able to provide my students with the same kind of experiences and memories. What goals do you have for your students? I try to teach my students to be comfortable with themselves as individuals and accepting of all dif-
ferent kinds of people. This will boost their self-confidence and allow them to go on and achieve awesomeness. What do you encourage parents to do at home to help their children strengthen particular skills? I always encourage parents to help their children hone their basic computation skills. When parents ask me what they can do to help at home, I also talk to them about how they can relate what skills or concepts we are working on in class to real life situations that they are experiencing at home. This not only helps students work on the skill itself, but also shows the students why it’s an important skill to have. What is your favorite movie? Tommy Boy Who is your favorite musician or band? Beastie Boys What’s something your students might not know about you? In college I delivered sandwiches for Jimmy Johns on my bike.

City prepares for annual tree-lighting ceremony with help from local Girl Scouts, businesses and community members By Robert Herrington • firstname.lastname@example.org The Downtown Westfield Association, its partners and city officials are prepared to kick off the holiday season and literally light up the spirits of the community on Nov. 30. The annual Westfield in Lights tree lighting and community event in downtown Westfield will be held from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. in the Farmer’s Market area. “It’s a three-block event,” explained Event Chairwoman Wendy Vivirito. “We’re anticipating 1,500 to 2,000 people.” Viviroto said the event will stretch from Hadley Park north to Christ United Methodist Church and west to City Hall. “A number of downtown merchants will be open for holiday shopping,” she added. Even if you aren’t searching for anything specific, Viviroto said residents should peruse Main Street and participate in the Merchant Light Competition sponsored by Westfield in Bloom. “Who has the best lights display? Our residents will vote on it through Christmas on the Westfield in Bloom Facebook page,” she said. The annual free community event was previously held at Redman Park before moving to its current location last year. In the final year at Redman Park, approximately 500 people attended the ceremony where a shorter tree was cut down, replanted, and used for the city tree. A 20-foot spruce tree was planted last November and dubbed as the City Tree for all future events. “We’re trying to identify that as the community gathering space when the community comes together for special events,” said Anne Poynter, Downtown Westfield Association executive director. “We outgrew the space and moved it due to safety issues,” said Viviroto. “The new location allows us to house everything in a couple of city blocks and still provide safety for our guests.” The tree lighting is just one of the events scheduled for the evening. Viviroto said other activities include carriage rides around town with historic stops and presentations from Westfield Playhouse actors, local carolers and dancers, a live nativity scene. Inside buildings adjacent to the Farmer’s Market area will house the Girl Scouts Gingerbread House competition and a Winter Market. “There’s a wide variety of activities to treat every one of our residents in the community that comes out that night,” said Viviroto. “From www.currentinwestfield.com

visiting with friends at the fire pits to taking a horse carriage ride and learning Westfield’s history, there’s something for everyone at any age to just come out and enjoy the holidays with your neighbors.” Santa and Mrs. Claus will also be making their first appearance in Westfield this year that night. The couple will be available to hear children’s Christmas wish lists and to have their photo taken. “My favorite part is when Santa and Mrs.
Claus get up on stage and the kids scream like they were rock stars,” said Poynter. “The kids bring an energy and you can’t be an adult and not feel it.” Westfield in Lights is the last major event the organization will host this calendar year. “There’s a lot more people attending then we’re used to at the events,” said Poynter. “The community is beginning to gel and that’s why these events are so successful.” “The highlight to me is the number of organi-

zations and businesses that come together in one event to make this a good tree lighting,” added Viviroto. MaxIT Healthcare is the title sponsor for the event with Meyer Najem, Maple Park Village, DWA and the city of Westfield as tree sponsors. Poynter said there are still sponsor titles available and any businesses or individuals interested can contact DWA at 965-3334. “Many wonderful partnerships and the community’s overall participation will make this another fantastic event for the city,” said Poynter. “The partnership with the Girls Scouts is a huge reason for the event becoming so successful. To get people there you need to get them involved.” Girl Scouts will be caroling, building Gingerbread Houses and assisting where needed again this year. Some of the older girls will assist as elves at Santa’s House. “I liked talking to people at the fire pits last year,” said Tori Viviro of Troop 931. “I’m looking forward to seeing the creations of Gingerbread Houses,” added fellow Girl Scout Tiffany Adams. “I also can’t wait to see all of the little kids faces when they sit on Santa’s lap.” Tiffany’s younger sisters, Nicole (a Brownie in Troop 1019) and Kaitlyn ( a Daisy in Troop 410), are also looking forward to being a part of the ceremony again this year. Both of the younger Adams girls said they enjoyed caroling on stage last year. “I caroled with my troop and another one,” said Nicole. “I liked decorating the Gingerbread Houses because it’s fun,” said Katilyn. Beginning in the late afternoon, North Union will be closed just north of Penn Street to just south of Catherine Street to accommodate foot traffic safety and carriage rides.

It is our position that a paradigm shift in the gender gap is forcing a change in attitude among men and women. Women surpass men in the U.S. workforce, college graduation rates and now, in the number of licensed drivers. According to author, motivational speaker and radio show host Coach Michael Taylor, many men are becoming tired and frustrated with the antiquated male roles in society and it is probably for the better. Taylor believes that despite the uncertainty and confusion some men are experiencing, these changing roles for men are actually good and can actually help eradicate some of the social issues that plague our country and lead to divorce, financial woes and depression. He is asking men to join him in his new revolution which he calls, A Conversation with Men. How about instead of men having a conversation with one another, they have the conversation with their spouse. Does every movement need a label? Perhaps the primary breadwinner has always felt pressure when wearing the pants in the family. However, will a level playing field really create balance, or will women soon be reshaped and grow callused by the pressures of being the breadwinner? Only time will tell.

The last word
Commentary by Terry Anker
This business of putting thoughts to paper carries with it some joys, some laments and a dash of in-between. Those of us who manage to write regularly can extol the virtue of ranting at a keyboard instead of a coworker. We can claim the calm that comes from expression – even if it is never heard (or read) by anyone other than ourselves. For me over these past many years, writing has become a labor of love. While it took some time to figure it out, I finally understand the need of some to keep a journal or at least take some notes here and there. But like most of life’s pleasures, it is balanced with peril. When one puts pen to paper, it is hard to retract or rephrase. It is out there – uninformed or even ignorant – people get to judge based only on a few words one’s measure. I enjoy biographies of historic figures. The materials often come from meticulous research through the personal papers and even diaries of these people. Would they have
taken greater care had they known that years later others would be combing their random thoughts seeking inconsistency or worse? And when putting something into the public space, special attention must be paid to word choice. Is a phrase or use of lexicon offensive (unintentionally) or sending an inadvertent message? Does it mean something different to a reader not born in the US? Does it mean something different to a reader born after 1985? Has the thought that one believed to be so unique, already been said before? When we’re talking face-to-face, so much more data is shared. We can respond to the body language of the listener and respond on the fly to changes in mood. At least with the written word, one gets the last word.

It’s a great time of year, the colder weather notwithstanding, because it’s officially the start of the holiday season. Some big-box stores would have you believe the holiday shopping season began back around Aug. 17, but we still were slathering on the sunscreen back then. No, it’s on now, and this Saturday brings a special opportunity for you and those that own enterprises in our midst. It’s Small Business Saturday, something of its own national holiday in our circle, a day to celebrate and support small businesses and all they do for our communities. Please join us as we support the local shopkeepers by buying local; it is exactly that which will fuel our own holiday season. Many of our advertising partners are smaller businesses, and many of those are represented in Gifts 2012 in today’s paper. Help us help them make a difference - and their cash registers ring - on Saturday. Besides, you’ll find unique gifts that may be had only this way. That’s what also makes Small Business Saturday special. And when you shop those establishments, please thank the owners for doing all they do in participating in the local economy, for they are the backbone of it.

Doo versus Thai-hot
Commentary by Danielle Wilson
I love my husband. Not only is he the funniest person I know, but he also proves to be an endless source of column ideas. Typically it’s of the “Doo is driving me crazy!” variety, but occasionally the fodder is pure situation comedy. Take last night. We took the kids out to dinner to celebrate our eldest’s birthday. Doo’s mom also joined us and, as we piled into the mini-van, Doo mentioned that his stomach was a little on edge. He’d eaten Thai food for lunch with some buddies and thought maybe that was the source of his discomfort. Once seated, we ordered an appetizer and drinks, and Doo politely excused himself to go the restroom. He was gone for a good 15 minutes, long enough that he missed out on most of the calamari and bread. “Are you OK, babe?” I asked. “Do you want to just split something?” “That did not go well,” Doo replied with a sigh. “I worked through some of it, but the rest is coming. Soon.” Doo managed to finish his soup and about half of his salad, but had to excuse himself again before dessert. He told me to order him a coffee and the tiramisu, and then walked rather quickly to the men’s room. Ten minutes later he was back, still looking kind of off. “Why did I eat Thai-hot today?” he moaned. “We’re going to have to leave fairly soon. I’m not finished and it’s not going to be
pretty when I do.” So we paid our bill, loaded Grams and the kids back into the car, and began the relatively short trip home. I was driving. Before we even reached the stop sign in the parking lot, Doo turned to me and said, “I am not kidding. Get me home NOW or I can’t be held responsible for what happens in this seat.” His complexion was now the color of Sweet Mint, and a fine sheen of sweat had broken out on his forehead. Naturally, we all began to mock him. Through the guffaws, I could hear poor Doo chanting, “I’m not going to make it, I’m not going to make it.” As I giggled at the thought of a possible Bridemaids re-enactment, Doo frantically pulled out his phone and dialed his brother who lives about half way in between. “Have the door open and clear the way,” he yelled, clutching the armrest for dear life. “Hee, hee, hoo” I coached, and then literally let loose from laughing so hard. I’m not proud that I broke several speeding laws to get Doo to that bathroom, but I’d do it again in a heartbeat. Because I really do love my husband. Peace out.

Missing link Commentary by Dick Wolfsie It was an exciting week for me. I’ve received over 500 congratulatory e-mails. What had I done to deserve this recognition? I didn’t have the foggiest idea. It all began with an appointment to meet a local businessman about a speech I was to give to his company. I logged onto my computer and went to a well-known site to see if there was any information about this CEO. I had joined LinkedIn back in 2007, but I tired of it very quickly because it appeared to have similar people who were on Facebook, only many of the LinkedIn members were actually looking for work, rather than wasting time on the Internet while at work. For several years, I ignored all requests for others to “link” with me, so my password had become inactive. This seemed fair because “inactive” was a pretty good description of my degree of motivation the past decade. When I updated my settings, every request for a connection that I had successfully ignored for so long was automatically sent out. Suddenly, I had more links than the night shift at the Johnsonville brat factory. Then I received emails lauding me for finally coming out of my cave: “Congratulations,” www.currentinwestfield.com

they all said, “you are now linked in with Betty, Hermione, Ezra and Terrance” (and several hundred others). How often had I thought about touching base with these individuals? “Never” was the first word that came to mind. The subject line of these emails enticed me to “learn more about” Phyllis, Oscar, Tony and Deidra, among others. Of course, the bar was low because I knew nothing about these people to begin with. The few I really did know personally wrote back to thank me for finally reaching out. They also wanted to know what took me so darn long. I plan to respond by 2017. By the way, associates you connect with also have the opportunity to “endorse” you, which I think means they have used your service and would recommend you to others. Out of 500 names I was suddenly linked to, one person actually endorsed me. I know that is nothing to brag about, but you might as well congratulate me. Everyone else has.

flavor,” he said. Cordelia also cautions those preparing the turkey to be certain to remove all of the innards or “turkey parts” before proceeding with the seasoning and stuffing. “Some people like to stuff their turkey with celery, carrots, and onions which gives an added flavor,” he said. As for cooking the turkey, Cordelia recommends that you have a cooking thermometer to gauge the readiness of the turkey. “You want to make sure that you cook it through to the innermost part at 180 degrees. The length of time will depend on the size of the bird,” he said. “When it’s done you’ll want to let it set for 20-30 minutes before carving. If you carve too soon, the juices will run everywhere and that will dry out the turkey.” Finally, Cordelia offers this as possibly the most valuable piece of advice for maximizing the enjoyment of your Thanksgiving Day – “Plan ahead!” “Get as much done as you can on the day before Thanksgiving. That way you’re not spending all day in the kitchen,” Cordelia says emphatically. For more information on various turkey recipes and preparations, Cordelia recommends www.foodchannel.com.

Lawrence of Arabia: 50th Anniversary Edition • PG, 227 minutes Commentary by Chris Lloyd “Nothing is written,” T.E. Lawrence famously says. But almost from the moment “Lawrence of Arabia” hit theaters in 1962, it seemed destined to become one of the most iconic films ever made. It is by most reckonings the pinnacle of the epic movie-making impulse that surged in the 1950s and ‘60s – a grand, lush drama filled with exotic foreign trappings and a history-making tale to tell. It won a slew of awards, including the Best Picture Oscar, and deserved them all. A restoration of director David Lean’s masterpiece was released in theaters in 1989 – one of the last films distributed in a 70mm print. Now, a new digital remastering from the original film negative has been completed for the movie’s 50th

HAPPY THANKSGIVING! Your best friend in Real Estate!
A game of one-upsmanship One-upmanship can be defined as the art or practice of successively outdoing a competitor. In our case the competition is not the opposing team, rather it’s the other tailgaters in our parking lot. Way back in 1992, I remember when a man attached a flag pole and flag to his minivan. His flag, sporting the team name and logo, waved in the fall breeze. The next game, another tailgater had a larger flag on a higher poll. Week after week the “war of the flags” rose to higher levels. Finally after all parties had taken things up to the highest level money could buy, one man arrived and dealt the coup de grâce. He brought an inflatable mini blimp, in team colors. He filled it with helium gas and let it rise to the sky, easily more than 100 feet. The blimp was tethered to his vehicle by a long rope and on the rope hung a huge team flag. The war of the flags was over! So much for one-upsmanship, right, or should I say “yeah right!” To try to make one’s tailgate set-up bigger and better is a natural male urge that must be allowed to run its course. Eventually, after accumulating tents, canopies, coolers, sound systems, themed vehicles, and bigger and better grills, each tailgater will start to realize that a tailgate party is a social event, not a competition. It’s a time to relax. Don’t get me wrong, it’s
still fun to watch rookie tailgaters compete with one another, but for now, when we speak of competition it’s about having better food. Here’s a great cold weather dish that will stand out as the best food in your parking lot. It’s called bœuf bourguignon, or Beef Burgundy.
Ingredients: 2 to 3 pounds good beef (like chuck steak) cubed, 1/4 cup canola oil, 10 or more small onions peeled, but whole, 1 teaspoon kosher salt,1 pound fresh mushrooms, 1 bottle burgundy wine Prepare: Trim all the fat from the beef and then stir fry it in a large stew pot. Remove these pieces of fat with a slotted spoon and then add the cubed meat and oil. Brown this mixture for 20 to 30 minutes. Add the salt and onions and then cover the mixture with the wine and simmer 30 minutes. Clean the mushrooms with a brush and then slice them into thin profile slices. Add these mushrooms to the mixture and then cover with the remainder of the wine. Simmer 30 minutes longer and then take one piece of beef and taste it. If it’s tender and full of that rich wine taste, it’s done. If not tender then cook it longer. Joe Drozda is an author about sports and food.

Correcting post-nursing breast issues Commentary by Barry Eppley Q: I need to remove excess skin from below my belly button and lift my breasts. I breast fed all four of my children and had a set of twins who stretched my stomach out tremendously. I have tried situps, but they won’t take care of this loose skin. A: Multiple pregnancies, particularly twins, push the skin past its elastic deformation limit. In essence, it snaps the rubber band nature of the abdominal skin forever, relegating many women to loose and often floppy skin that is seen the most between the belly button and the pubic area. The surest sign of permanently lost skin elasticity are stretch marks, which represent incomplete tears in the skin. This is like making
little snips partially through a rubber band; it weakens or eliminates its elasticity. You are correct in stating that exercise is not going to tighten skin nor will weight loss. The problem is a surgical and will require skin excision and underlying muscle tightening, a perfect description for a tummy tuck. Whether your tummy tuck would be a partial (mini-) or a full tummy tuck I cannot say without seeing pictures of you. But my guess would be that after four children, a full tummy tuck with maximal skin removal is likely in order.

Preparing for and handling a home fire CHRISTMAS Commentary by Jamie Ianigro
Question from Kenny C. from West Clay: The freak explosion on the south side has me trying to figure out a plan for my family if we are involved in a home fire. I don’t know where to start. Got any advice? Response from Jamie Ianigro: You’re a step ahead of a lot of people. Advanced planning is one of the most important factors in protecting your family from fire. Home fires injure over 13,000 people a year and kill nearly 3,000. The people most at risk are those over age 65 and children preschool age and younger. The first thing you need to worry about when it comes to protecting your family is smoke alarms. Every home should have at least one smoke alarm. Most codes now require that a smoke alarm be placed on every floor of the home. Test the batteries on your smoke alarms monthly and replace the alarm every ten years. Make sure you always install new alarms according to the manufacturer’s directions.
With all of your smoke alarms working, you need to create an escape plan. Make sure everyone in your family understands what to do when the smoke alarm goes off. Practice your escape plan in the dark so that you all know what to expect and how to navigate the home without electricity. Here are some things to keep in mind when coming up with your plan. • Know two ways out of each room. Have an escape ladder for any bedrooms above the ground floor. Make sure children are familiar with opening the windows. • Feel the door for heat before opening it. If the door is not hot, open it slowly and take your normal escape route. If the door is hot, take your backup route. • Crawl if there is smoke. Most fire victims succumb to smoke and toxic gases. Stay below the smoke by crawling. • Have an arranged meeting place outside the house. Make sure everyone knows it. • DON’T GO BACK INSIDE. Let the fire department handle it from here.
Stock tip – Texas Roadhouse runs close to 400 restaurants, including several around Indianapolis. The company should be able to grow at least 10% a year for at least five more years, and is conservatively run. It has little debt and plenty of extra cash flow to pay a respectable 2.1% dividend yield. – Ryan C. Fuhrman, CFA, via finance.yahoo.com
Job growth – According to CNN Money, veterinarian is one of the fastest growing jobs, specifically for those with rural practices or work with the Centers for Disease Control or the U.S. Department of Agriculture. – money.cnn.com
Lastly, insurance. Your independent insurance agent is going to be there to help you rebuild your life after a terrible loss, like a fire. It is important to make sure your insurance limits are adequate and up-to-date. Insurance policies are concerned with the cost of rebuilding your home (not to be confused with the market value). Be sure to review your policy with your agent annually. Your contents (furniture, clothes, etc) value is usually set at half of the rebuilding cost. Sometimes this limit can be inadequate and needs to be increased. Your independent insurance agent can provide a simple home inventory form to help figure out if you need to increase your contents limit. For more information on fire prevention, visit usfa.dhs.gov or call your independent insurance agent.

Questions about carbohydrates in pet food Commentary by John Mikesell Grain free dry dog food has become wildly popular in the past few years. Many dog owners who feed grain-free foods don’t know why they are spending a small fortune on these foods .Or they may have reasons but are the reasons valid. The most common reason people say they have switched to grain free foods is because dogs don’t need carbs. They are partly right. Dogs do not need carbs. However, grain-free Foods do contain carbs. In fact many grain free foods contain a fair amount of carbohydrates in the form of potatoes, sweet potatoes, tapioca, or peas. Grain –free foods perform really well when fed to some dogs, but may be inappropriate for others, for example, when a high-fat or highprotein diet is contraindicated. Owners should feed their dogs diets that work best for their individual animals, and
Develop an accurate understanding of why those diets work well. There are two categories of carbohydrates: simple and complex. Simple carbohydrates require little or no digestive breakdown and are readily absorbed from the small intestine and converted into glucose. Complex carbohydrates are further categorized as either starches or fibers, and are digested more slowly than simple carbohydrates. Starches require additional breakdown by enzymes, produced by the pancreas and intestinal wall, before they are adsorbed and utilized by the dog. Few dog food labels list carbohydrates, it is not legally required. To
roughly calculate the percentage of carbohydrate in food, look at the guaranteed analysis on the label, and subtract the protein, fat moisture, and ash content from 100%. The remainder is an approximate percentage of carbs in the diet, and includes the food’s crude fiber. WHAT YOU CAN DO Listen to your dog! Skin, coat, eyes, stool, regurgitation/vomiting, energy, behavior, and urinalysis/blood work are all indicators of whether what you’re feeding is working. Don’t banish carbohydrates from your dog’s diet without understanding why you’re doing so. When feeding carbohydrates feed high
quality sources such as whole grains, fruits, and vegetables. If and when you make a dietary change, document it well: make a list of what was I the previous food, what’s in the new one, and compare. As an aside, which has nothing to do with carbs( well maybe a little) this time of the year ,with all the coming and going of holiday guests, don’t forget your pet. We need to take extra special care that our pets are not forgotten. It can be very stressful for them during the holiday season. Lots of good food around that they can get into. Some that can make them very sick. Lots of strangers around and doors left open, so they can sneak out. So keep an I out for your dog or cat, and if begins to look overwhelming for them, get them to a quiet place so they can relax. John Mikesell, owner of Izzy’s Place, A dog Bakery in Carmel, can be reached at email@example.com.

A backyard playground for the entire family Commentary by Randy Sorrell What’s THE ultimate backyard living amenity? In my view, that distinction belongs to the custom fireplace and grill station. Experience proves that no other luxury brings people together and inspires more memories than this. This Villages of West Clay backyard handles both the large footprint of the home and the valued green space that weaves through the neighborhood and directly behind the home. Completely custom, no pre-fabricated components are seen here; it boasts a Wisconsin cobble and mortar exterior that echoes a gorgeous interior fireplace. Limestone counters are very appropriate for the tone of the space and were smartly sourced in Indiana, of course. Ample counter space grows from each side of the fireplace and will easily accommodate several visitors, particularly coupled with the already gracious size patio. The grill station counter proudly houses the “green egg” from Chef JJ in Broadripple, and it is easily the center of attention if you are a grilling dude. What a treat! Shade Almost every outdoor project has some sort
of shade management component and this was no exception. In fact, a southwestern exposure prompted this space to completely bake and become off limits for much of the summer. Strategically located, the new structure will protect the happy Carmel family in that challenging 5-8 p.m. timeframe when the sun manages to sneak below the pergola or porch roofline. Midday protection is accomplished with the help of abbreviated pergolas over each counter as well as an edgy overhead shade sail. Exterior grade blinds recessed between the pergola beams offer additional protection, help with privacy and magically behave as a screen on movie night. Dedicated homeowners with these marvelous structures appreciate that outdoor living can extend almost uninterrupted through winter with the right planning. We do have our limits though. What’s yours?

The beauty of an island
72% of women feel they work a “2nd
Commentary by David Decker Today, people use their kitchen for more than just preparing meals. The kitchen is the social center of the home where kids, adults, family members and party guests tend to congregate, which is why for many homeowners, no kitchen is quite complete without an island in the center of the space. Islands have become popular focal points of the modern kitchen, and it’s easy to see why. They make cooking and entertaining so much easier. And since the biggest cooking event of the year is on its way later this month, here are a few kitchen island design ideas just in time for Thanksgiving. Because they are centrally located, islands often become the focal point of the kitchen from a functionality standpoint. Islands make it easy to accommodate the activities and groups of people who are busy bustling around in the kitchen. And with the holidays approaching, it’s helpful to have space for the extra cooks who may be in the kitchen. Islands can function as extra countertop space, or they can be equipped with an extra sink to make an excellent cooking prep station. Some homeowners even choose to wire their stove onto a kitchen island, which frees up countertop space around other areas of the kitchen. Islands also function as easy-toaccess storage space or as a place to display food and beverages during a party.
Quit your night job and hire Certain kitchen island models become popular because they make it possible to do several activities at once. For example, there are island designs that feature multiple countertop levels. The lower level usually functions as a cooking workspace, while the higher level works as an elevated dining area. The multiple levels make it possible to cook a meal while entertaining guests at the same time. The key to the island’s popularity is versatility. With so many shapes and sizes to choose from, you can find a kitchen island that is specifically designed for the activities you do most. Kitchen islands can also become the focal point of the room from a design standpoint. A stylish island design can really beautify your kitchen space. You can make your island stand out by painting it a bright or bold color. It’s a great way to make the island pop and to use fun colors that might be too intense to paint on the walls or cabinets. The countertop surface you choose for the island can also make a big design splash. I’ve seen islands with stone, wood and even stainless steel countertops. The countertop used on your island doesn’t necessarily have to match the surfaces found in the rest of your kitchen. In fact, the contrast will

make your island stand out from the other kitchen countertops. Whether you’d like to make your island the center of your kitchen for functional or design reasons (or maybe a combination of the two), these ideas will help you make the most of your kitchen island space.
