By Mark Ambrogi mark@youarecurrent.com Riverview Health continues to expand its reach. President/ STATE OF HEALTH CEO Seth Warren gave the State of Health presentation Nov. 20 at Ivy Tech’s Noblesville campus. Warren reminded the audience that as a county hospital, Riverview Health is owned by Hamilton County and is an independent hospital network. “For the last 110 years, we’ve been able to serve Hamilton County and grow with Hamilton County,” Warren said. “Taxpayers do not support us. We are independent financially. The county commissioners provide oversight.” In addition to its Noblesville hospital, Riverview Health opened its second hospital in Westfield a year ago. “We’re excited to be in Westfield as Westfield continues to grow,” he said.  There is an urgent care component along with emergency room service. “Some people don’t know what they need, so you don’t have to figure that out,” Warren said. “There are emergency room nurses. We have all the capabilities.” A Riverview Health Emergency

It is named for Cole, a former Noblesville High School basketball and golf standout and former owner of Hare Chevrolet. Cole died of nonsmokers lung cancer Sept. 22 at age 48. Warren said Cole’s parents, Dave and Jacqueline Cox, and her sister, Monica Peck, and her husband Darren, as well as Courtney Cox Cole herself, made a large donation. A video was played detailing the reasons for the center. Cox was treated at Riverview and loved the Riverview staff but noted that the center was crowded and had no windows. Cole and her family wanted a brighter, more upbeat atmosphere for cancer patients undergoing treatment at the Noblesville hospital. Donations are still being collected by the Riverview Health Foundation. Warren said donations have been received from acroos the nation because of the people Cole touched. “We do more than 10,000 infusions a year in that space,” Warren said. “It is triple the space of our previous infusion center.” enough food to feed 100 people in the community.

Altrusa celebrates 30 years By Renee Larr news@currentinwestfield.com The Altrusa Club of Hamilton County is celebrating 30 years of giving back and making a difference CLUBS for Hamilton County residents. The club was chartered in 1989 at Woodland Country Club in Carmel and is a local chapter of Altrusa International. Altrusa International, which focuses on community service, was founded in Nashville, Tenn., in 1917. During that time, a record number of women were in the workforce during World War I, and there was a need for women’s civic organizations. “The big emphasis is getting people together to find a need within the community and working to end that need,” club member Joanne Kemp said. “In the past, we’ve worked a lot to advance literacy in Hamilton County.” The club has distributed books and library calendars with children’s

By Sadie Hunter sadie@youarecurrent.com In only two years, a small group of Hamilton County women has raised more than PHILANTHROPY $40,000. Wrapping up 2019 with its final quarterly meeting of the year Nov. 13, the Hamilton County chapter of 100+ Women Who Care presented a $9,400 check to its most recent beneficiary, Fishers Youth Assistance Program. “This organization is for women with a desire to impact the community but are constrained by time,” said Dana Randall, who co-founded the Hamilton County chapter with Carolyn Deines and Mary Beth Woehrle. “It provides a simple way to make a collective impact much greater than what one individual can do alone. (It) provides a way to impact multiple nonprofits throughout the year, each meeting a different (need).” Since its founding in August 2017, the chapter has granted exactly $40,650 to Hamilton County-based organizations that help others.

Beneficiaries are chosen after members nominate a local charity. Three nominations are randomly drawn, and the nominating members then each make a five-minute presentation about their nonprofit. One charity is selected by member votes and is awarded the collective donation of a $100 personal check from each member. To learn more or get involved, visit 100womenwhocarehamiltoncounty. com.

Local police force includes veterans By Mark Ambrogi mark@youarecurrent.com There is a natural correlation between serving in the military and on the police force. Officer Paul Meehan, MILITARY Westfield, is one of several members of the Carmel Police Dept. who are either active in the military or veterans. “Being forced into stressful situations in the military and knowing how to deal with that really helped me out for the police world,” said Meehan, a captain in the Army Reserves. CPD officer David Commodore and Meehan both have been with CPD since July 2018. Commodore previously was with the Marion County Sheriff’s Office for more than five years. Commodore, 35, was active duty in the U.S. Army for six years and just got out of the National Guard in May after six years. “It’s a similar brotherhood and a sense of camaraderie in the police world as in the military,” Commodore said. “In the military, you are doing a lot more together on a daily basis. I think that what draws the military to the police force is the uniform, the sense of camaraderie and the sense of brotherhood.” Meehan previously was a police officer in Everett, Wash., for nearly seven years. The police departments in Everett and Carmel have been understanding of his military obligations. “Both chiefs have been supportive in a way I need, whether it’s training or whatever is extra,” Meehan said. “As I get up there in rank, the military is going to require more and more of my time, because my responsibility is greater.” Meehan, 34, grew up in Huntington. He moved to Everett because his wife, Natalie, was then active in the Navy and transferred to Washington. Meehan is an operating officer in a battalion outside of Detroit and does two weeks a year of annual training. He also serves one weekend a month

and does some other administration work through the week. Meehan, who was deployed to Afghanistan from 2010 to 2011 as part of an engineer battalion from Ohio, has been in the Army Reserves for 11 years. During his stint in Afghanistan, his unit searched for improvised explosive devices and disarmed them. “I did about 38 combat patrols for IEDs,” he said. “The rest of the time was doing operations work.” Commodore, a Noblesville resident, said he felt this year was a good time to take a break since he was relatively new to CPD. “I’m thinking of going back in to get my 20 years (of service),” Commodore said. “Do another eight years and voila, retirement.” Commodore was deployed to Iraq in 2006 and returned in 2007. “I was an intelligence analyst, drafting reports, when I was deployed,” he said. “Going active duty was a great stepping stone into adulthood. I went in right after high school. It taught me a lot of life skills. It was very beneficial. I got to travel the world with the military, a lot of different states and countries.”

FORMING WEBS

www.currentinwestfield.com

Wellbeing Coalition provides support for youth, seniors

By Mark Ambrogi mark@youarecurrent.com Even in the more affluent communities or high-performing school districts, young COVER STORY people and adults can struggle without enough support. “Adversity doesn’t know a ZIP code, it doesn’t know a school system, it doesn’t know a neighborhood or a community,” said Kyle Miller, coordinator of social and emotional wellness for Westfield Washington Schools. “Adversity affects all of us. Our goal is, how do we ensure that every kid, every adult and every senior has a web, so when adversity comes, not if but when it does come, are we able to bounce off of that web and look to those that are supportive for us?” Westfield launched The Wellbeing Coalition of Westfield earlier this year in a joint effort with the Hamilton County Community Foundation, Westfield Washington Schools and the City of Westfield. Mayor Andy Cook announced the formation in January 2019 during his State of the City address, but Miller said work had been going on prior to that. Miller is on the core leadership team of the Wellbeing Coalition. In a move to increase awareness and motivate others to get involved, the organization brought youth support advocate Derek Peterson to Westfield Oct. 30 for a two-hour presentation.  Peterson’s studies show that if a child has at least five positive, caring adults who have high expectations of them and provides unconditional love and support, they are more likely to succeed. Those can include parents, grandparents, teachers, counselors, coaches, church leaders, neighbors or anyone who might have an influence. “We have similar work we are try-

look like? What do my neighbors’ webs look like?” Laura Crum, manager of public outreach for the Westfield Township Trustee’s office, said she will use Peterson’s methods to create ways to help adults and seniors. “The Wellbeing Coalition is looking at the entire community and how to create the web of support effectively,” she said. “It’s a big thing to make sure everyone has someone to go to if there is an issue.”

ing to do with building web support for kids, assuring that kids have a thick web,” Miller said. “I think it’s important for us to understand everyone needs a web, whether you’re a youth or adult or senior. That social connection is what gives us protective factors against all the things that come at us in life. It can mitigate the effects of trauma. It can mitigate the effects of depression and anxiety.

“If we are connected to one another, the likelihood of us hitting rock bottom significantly decreases.” Westfield Middle School Principal Mike Hall said he has had the opportunity to work with Peterson for several years. “I had studied his research to know what kids need to do to be successful,” Hall said. “At the middle school level, kids are able to say who is in their web. We have to educate kids to understand they are responsible to start to build their web.” Hall said students will attend college and call and say they are homesick. “Derek will say, ‘No, you are websick. You have to web yourself up,’” Hall said. Hall said people with multiple individuals in their web are more likely to thrive. “If you are thickly webbed, a very small number will fall through the cracks,” Hall said. “We believe that this is such a simple message that you can understand. What does my web look like? What do my kids’ webs

As founder and principal director of the International Institute for Student Support, Derek Peterson developed the Student Support Card. Peterson, who gave his presentation at Grand Park Events Center in Westfield, employs several exercises to emphasize how community members can provide support for others. In one exercise, several balloons go up in the air, and it is up to all audience members to make sure they don’t fall.  “You don’t want your person to fall to the ground,” Peterson said. “If he or she touches the floor, they are having a tough time. They could be in back of one of your squad cars. They could be kicked off your football team. They could be expelled from your school. It’s hard to fix broken people. It’s easier to keep them up.” Peterson noted that Westfield Washington Schools is a high-performing district. “You’ve probably got kids that are thickly webbed (in support), but please don’t forget the kids who are having a hard time,” he said.

ESSAY

LETTER

Enlightened path

This ‘racist’ votes for Trump

Commentary by Terry Anker Early 20th-century U.S. Supreme Court Justice Oliver Wendell Holmes Jr. wrote, “But when men have realized that time has upset many fighting faiths, they may come to believe even more than they believe the very foundations of their own conduct that the ultimate good desired is better reached by free trade in ideas – that the best test of truth is the power of the thought to get itself accepted in the competition of the market, and that truth is the only ground upon which their wishes safely can be carried out.” Holmes was responsible for a doctrine used by our nation’s high court to restrict First Amendment claims to free assembly, speech or press, known widely through one line of his opinion, “clear and present danger.” Later, an important lower court jurist, Learned Hand, supported the notion, adding that restrictions on these American freedoms could only come to prevent “imminent lawless action.” It was a different time. Socialism, especially the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics and the National Socialist German Workers’ Party, i.e., the Nazis, was then known to be a verified threat to freedom. Still, jurists were slow to restrict the exchange of ideas, even vastly unpopular ones. The minority voice had to be protected, if only so a debate could be preserved. How often did the majority prove, in the long run, to be on the enlightened path? Is it any different now? Terry Anker is an associate editor of Current Publishing, LLC.

Hitting the Hamiltonian lottery Commentary by Danielle Wilson Friends, I won the lottery! Not that lottery. You think I’d still be writing this column if HUMOR I were a newly minted millionaire? Puh-lease. Maybe I’d pen one final commentary at 36,000 feet aboard my new Gulf Stream en route to Davos, but that’d be it. So long, suckers! No, I won two $10 tickets to “Hamilton” in Chicago! I know! I’ve seen the musical before but have been wanting to take my youngest daughter, Maddie. I thought we’d go to the touring one here in Indianapolis this month, but the tickets start at $175, and that’s for a weekday matinee with a “limited view,” i.e., “behind a giant pole.” Which makes absolutely no sense to me. It’s not the original cast, it’s not Broadway and it’s been out for almost five years. I just couldn’t stomach shelling out that much dough for a show, even one as fantastic as “Hamilton.” Then, I discovered the lottery. I installed the “Hamilton” app, signed

up for email notifications and have literally been entering daily since 2017. Chicago, Madison, Wis., Milwaukee, Louisville. If I could drive there in a reasonable amount of time, I threw my tricorne hat into the ring. Because that’s the thing. If you win, you’re given only four hours to accept the tickets for a next-day production. Yowsers. When a “Congratulations” popped up in my inbox, I nearly wet my pants. After all this time, it was happening! So, for 20 bucks, Maddie and I were able to see “Hamilton” in Chicago. Our seats weren’t perfect (we were under a substantial can-only-glimpse-feetif-they-sing-from-the-second-storyof-the-set overhang), but definitely worth it. I can’t believe I won the lottery! Peace out.

Danielle Wilson is a contributing columnist. You may email her at info@youarecurrent.com.

Editor, Regarding Christina Downey’s comments (a past letter available at youarecurrent.com), what gives her the right to call anybody names? I wish people would repeat all of President Trump’s remarks. Telling someone to go back to their country, fix their problems, then come back and tell us how you did it. Finish the statement. Can you imagine what would have happened to all of us “racists” had we taken Obama’s statements out of context? I don’t like being called a racist, it’s getting tiring. It’s beginning to just be another word we shrug off because it has been used so much. Just look at the accomplishments (Trump) has made. Obama divided America, and Trump is trying to restore it. Unemployment is down, the economy is growing. I would say that anyone who votes for the other side is a socialist and agrees with the Antifa group. We are no more racist than you are, and after reading her article, she is more so. I’m surprised at Current as well. So, this “racist” is voting for Trump in 2020. Deal with it.  Carol Powell, Noblesville

Ph oto co ur t

Back pain is a major problem in this nation. It’s the second-biggest reason people don’t go to work HUMOR in the morning. The first reason is not having a job. I have a longstanding relationship with my back, but ironically, most of my problems come from sitting too long. I read somewhere that while stationed at the computer, I should put my butt at the outermost edge of the chair. I tried that, slid off and almost broke my jaw on the keyboard. My health care providers have tried desperately to help me correct my sloppy posture. I have a genetic predisposition - sometimes I have pain in dis position, sometimes in dat position. I’ve been going to a chiropractor who uses the traditional approach practiced by the Mafia for generations: He roughs me up, inflicts pain and then takes my money. Time for a

different approach. Irwin, my new physical therapist, instructed me to stand like I normally do when I talk to someone. He said he prefers to observe his subjects in their natural setting. This sounded a lot like Jane Goodall justifying her first expense report. I don’t know about you, but my extremities pretty much fall into place on their own when I’m chatting with someone. I don’t think about where to put my right leg, how to hold my head or how to position each arm. I just start yacking away, although I do try not to put my foot in my mouth. When I got myself into my normal stance, the therapist shook his head. “You lean too far to the left,” he said, which is exactly what WIBC said to me in l995 when they fired me from my talk show. On the massage table, Irwin rotated my head and neck to assess my range of motion. “I don’t think your spine has a good relationship with your legs,” he

commented. He was probably right. I was sure that through the years there had been very little conversation between the two. I would have overheard it. To improve my posture, he suggested walking with my arms at my sides, with the palms facing forward, opened wide and turned skyward. I tried this while I was strolling downtown later that day. It felt odd, except I did score some loose change from sympathetic pedestrians. Irwin told me to imagine there is a string running up my spine and through my head to the ceiling when I walk. My next appointment is with a neurologist. Not for my spine, but because I walked headfirst into a wall.

DISPATCHES Look for dividend-paying stocks — Dividend-paying stocks tend to hold up better than the overall market during volatile times and economic slowdowns. But many large-cap, blue-chip dividend payers such as McDonald’s and Procter & Gamble have already experienced big gains the past year, so they may not provide the downside protection you would expect. A better defensive strategy is to invest in dividend-paying medium-sized companies -- those with stock market values between $2 billion and $10 billion. Their businesses are mature enough to pay reliable dividends but still have the ability to grow. To find attractive dividend-paying. mid-cap stocks, look for companies with steady recurring revenues, little or no debt, leading market positions in their niches and strong enough cash flow to increase dividends at least 10 percent annually for the next five years. Dividend growth is the best indication that earnings

are growing and that management believes they will continue to grow.

Bays, Schaab identify with ‘Elf’ roles at Civic Theatre By Mark Ambrogi mark@youarecurrent.com For Matt Bays, his role could be considered a slight bit of typecasting. PERFORMANCE Bays relates to his character Buddy in “Elf The Musical.” “He’s a happy-go-lucky person and so am I,” Bays said Bays plays Buddy in Civic Theatre’s production of “Elf The Musical,” which runs from Dec. 6 to Dec. 28 at The Tarkington at the Center for the Performing Arts in Carmel. The story centers on a young orphan, who accidentally climbs into Santa’s bag of gifts and is transported to the North Pole, where he is raised as an elf by Santa’s elves. “I thought maybe I was too old for the part, but it worked out,” said Bays, a 49-year-old Westfield resident. Bays said he was familiar with the 2003 movie starring Will Ferrell as Buddy but had never seen the 2010 Broadway musical, which was inspired by the movie. “It’s one of our staples I watch every year with my two daughters,” Bays said of the movie. “Buddy is spontaneous. He’s loving and he’s a little naive, a trusting individual.” The show is Bays’ second with Civic. He was in “Anything Goes” in 2018. Bays did not do musical theater for 25 years because he was doing other music in church. Noblesville resident Emily Schaab sees a bit of herself in her character of Jovie. “I find the character true to who I am a little bit,” Schaab said. “She’s a little sarcastic and a little sassy. It’s been a lot of fun.” Schaab said the music is fun and

heart-warming. “Jovie has one song by herself, and I sing throughout the show with Buddy and the ensemble,” Schaab said. The show is Schaab’s third with Civic in 2019 and her first lead Civic role. She previously was in “Newsies” and “Mamma Mia!” “We’re having a blast. That’s something that’s been the case at all three shows I’ve done at Civic,” Schaab said. “It’s always a good environment.” Clay Middle School eighth-grader Ben Boyce, who plays Michael Hobbs, said this is his biggest role in a Civic Theatre main stage show. “I like the role because I’m able to develop my character,” Boyce said. “It’s a very fun role to play. I love the movie ‘Elf,’ so it was fun to bring the role to the stage.” Boyce said he watched some musical versions to help better develop his character.

“I have to speak with a New York accent, so developing that is a little hard,” Boyce said. Boyce appeared as Dill Harris in “To Kill a Mockingbird” earlier this year on the main stage. He was in Jr. Civic’s productions of “James and the Giant Peach” in 2018 and “Shrek The Musical” in 2019. He had to learn a Southern accent for Dill and a British accent for James. Bishop Chatard High School senior Nate Schlabach, a Fishers resident, plays Charlie, an elf. “I also get to be part of the ensemble and take part in a few of the crazy, fun dance numbers,” Schlabach said. “I always loved the movie. It’s fun to do a high-pitched elf voice. It comes pretty natural to do that voice, but it’s something I never tried on stage before.” He also was in “Newsies” and “Mamma Mia!” For more, visit civictheatre.org.

Carmel resident directs Madrigal shows editorial@youarecurrent.com North Central High School sophomore Lucy Price has two main reasons for enjoying her first year as a member of the school’s King’s Court Singers. “I love the songs we perform and the outfits we wear,” said Price, whose father, James, lives in Carmel. “We sing a song with just the girls that I really like. I like the Christmas music the best. My favorite song we are doing now is ‘Jingle Bells.’” The singing group, which performs in Renaissance-era costumes, is directed by longtime Carmel resident Joyce Click. The Madrigal Dinner is set for 6 p.m. Dec. 6 and the Madrigal Luncheon is at noon Dec. 7 at the Knights of Columbus, 2100 E. 71st St., Indianapolis. Tickets are available at Eventbrite. com.

Cantus to perform concert By Mark Ambrogi mark@youarecurrent.com Cantus has a unique approach to creating music. The Minneapolis-based MUSIC men’s vocal ensemble doesn’t have a music director, so the eight singers share responsibilities. “We are the only full-time ensemble in the world, I believe, that is artist-led,” baritone David Geist said. “Every show you see is an equal combination of all the work we put together. When we are programming shows, we bring the theme and the concept. “Oftentimes, we’ll have a big whiteboard with 100 songs, and we narrow it down to 20 for a performance. We are very collaborative.” Cantus will present “Three Tales of Christmas” at 8 p.m. Dec. 7 at the Palladium at the Center for the Performing Arts in Carmel. In “Three Tales of Christmas,” the

group combines familiar carols, new twists on holiday classics and narrated passages from classic holiday tales such as “A Christmas Carol,” “Gift of the Magi” and “’Twas the Night Before Christmas.” Geist said the group usually does 35 to 40 shows in the Minneapolis-St. Paul area and another 30 to 40 on the road.

By Mark Ambrogi mark@youarecurrent.com When Bobbi Van Howe read the script of “The Very Merry Xmas Carol Holiday Adventure THEATER Show,” she laughed out loud. It was one of three plays the Whitestown resident submitted to direct for Carmel Community Players’ Christmas play. It was her favorite and the board’s. “It’s not like any other Christmas show they’ve ever seen,” Van Howe said. The play is set for seven performances from Dec. 6 to 15 at The Cat, 254 Veterans Way, Carmel. A narrator’s retelling of Christmas tales unravels into an action-packed adventure, when Frosty the Snowman, Scrooge and Rudolph the Rednosed Reindeer seek to save the spirit of Christmas from the evil Xmas, who is destroying Christmas stories.

Westfield High School sophomore Emma Fox portrays Rudolph. “I’m really thankful for the experience and it’s been a learning experience to be able to work with people older than me,” she said. “Rudolph is a little crazy and he does some weird things.” Tom Harrison, Westfield, plays Scrooge.

Blueprint for Improvement: Northern Indy functional kitchen Commentary by Larry Greene

Before

THE SOLUTION

After

RSVP TODAY for our

THE CHALLENGE This 1972-built home is in Indianapolis’ Pickwick Commons neighborhood. The popular ‘70s split-level design didn’t give the family the space they craved for spending time together and hosting friends and family. They wanted to create a larger kitchen that opened into a brand new great room which would offer plenty of room for family activities.

Music Under the Stars! July 26th from 5 p.m. – 7 p.m.

1. The exterior wall was removed and columns added to provide structural support and architectural interest between the kitchen and the new great room. 2. The kitchen was expanded into what was the dining room, giving the homeowners more room for maneuvering and a lot more storage. 3. An impressive granite backsplash makes quite a statement over the cooktop and continues to the counters. 4. New maple cabinetry with loads of pull-out shelves and organizers, plus a larger island, provide additional storage and organization.

Brief history of Australia’s famous Bondi Beach Commentary by Don Knebel Bondi Beach in Sydney, Australia, is one of the world’s most popular beaches. It is particularly popular with visitors from the Northern Hemisphere, who can celebrate Christmas at the TRAVEL beach. Bondi Beach is 4 miles east of the CBD, Sydney’s Central Business District. The word “Bondi” (pronounced bondie) is derived from an Aboriginal word having the same meaning as “surf” in English. In the mid-19th century, the property that included the beach was part of the private “Bondi Estate.” For a time, the owners allowed the public to access the beach, which was famous for the size of its waves. When the owners threatened to block access to the beach, the Municipal Council made it public in 1882. By the 20th century, up to 60,000 people a day were coming to the beach. On Feb. 6, 1938, known as “Black Sunday,” five beachgoers were killed and more than 250 injured when a series of large waves pulled people into the water. Bondi Beach has been the site of efforts to control decency in swimwear for both men and women. In 1935, the local government passed an ordinance regulating the amount of skin that could be shown, leading to American actress Jean Parker being es-

corted off Bondi Beach in 1951 because her bikini was too revealing. The ordinance was repealed in 1961 and topless bathing became popular. On Sept. 26, 2007, 1,010 women wearing tiny bikinis assembled on Bondi Beach. The resulting photograph, published in Cosmopolitan in 2008, established the Guinness record for the largest swimsuit photoshoot. Today, Bondi Beach attracts about 2.5 million visitors a year, many of whom take advantage of the fashionable cafes along the Campbell Parade

that adjoins the beach. Visitors to Bondi Beach can also watch rugby matches played on the beach by the Sydney Roosters.

Engfishing isn’t smart Commentary by Curtis Honeycutt “This is the type of arrant pedantry up with which I will not put.” — Winston S. GRAMMAR GUY Churchill We have probably all written a version of this essay at some point in high school or college: You’ve read the assigned book (OK, “skimmed” is probably more accurate) and there’s a five-page essay due tomorrow. Well, technically it’s due today because it’s 2 a.m. and your paper’s due at 9 a.m. It’s time to “fill the space,” as they say in university circles. You’ve nudged the margins to make them bigger. You’re using Courier New because it takes up more space on the page. Now, it’s time to make your words longer and more intelligent-sounding so you can squeak out a B-minus on this bad boy. You consult your thesaurus for every third word. Somehow, we learn a certain form of writing an essay or paper

that ends up resembling everyone else’s papers, or -- even worse -- an imitation of our professor’s speech patterns. The result is a flowery, academic-sounding, five-page whopper of a nothingburger. You swap out the word “use” for “utilize” or “employ.” You go to great lengths in order to avoid ending a sentence with a preposition, forcing your words to twist and turn into stuffy syntax riddles. You’re verbose to the point of long-windedness. There’s a term for this: Engfish. It’s when we use contrived language for the sake of sounding smart. We use Engfish in our writing and in conversations. By puffing up our discourse, we end up obscuring our intended message.
