Academy takes aim at success

By Lauren Olsen • news@currentinwestfield.com

Tim’s Shooting Academy, 17777 Commerce Dr., has opened for business providing Westfield and the surrounding areas with what is being now open called Indiana’s safest shooting range. Owner Tim Tomich said he built the facility according to naval specifications because they are the world’s most rigorous. “We studied the USA Naval regulations for indoor shooting ranges to develop our HVAC system and to provide protection for shooters with divided-wall stalls. Also, our building’s concrete perimeter prevents any errant shots from exiting the building,” he said. The range provides three shooting bays with five lanes each, two bays for handguns and one for handguns and rifles. It also has three NRA-certified instructors, and Tomich is working on getting his accreditation. “I’ll go through a program the NRA recognizes and approves that covers all criteria required to instruct classes,” Tomich said. Tomich’s motto, “safety and education,” is in the forefront of everything he does in his business. With that in mind, he has an on-site classroom that holds

up to 20 people and offers classes such as basic and advanced pistols, home defense, private instruction and a two-day concealed carry and combat class. “Guns don’t kill people, people kill people,” Tomich said. “The reason people kill people is because they are not familiar with their guns, how to handle a gun and render it harmless. That’s why I press safety and education.” The range offers gun rentals for testing, which can be especially useful for those looking to purchase their first firearm. “(Visitors) can fire different guns and make an intelligent decision,” Tomich said.

Tim’s Shooting Academy

• Where: 17777 Commerce Dr., Westfield • Type: Shooting range for handguns and rifles • Hours: 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. Saturday and 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Sunday • Offers: Classes, firearm rental, full-service firearms store, HVAC ventilation system and 15 shooting lanes • Phone Number: 399-7918 • Website: timsshootingacademy.com

DVD Review In many ways, “All Is Lost” is 2013’s companion film to “Gravity,” though far fewer people saw it. Robert Redford stars as Our Man, an unnamed lone seafarer aboard a high-class sailboat. Like Sandra Bullock did in space, he faces an existential crisis when his vessel is fatally damaged, and he spends the rest of the movie trying valiantly – though without much hope – to survive.

It offers more than 80 varieties of wine, many of which are available by the glass. The wines are selected so that they pair well with the food and match the same affordable price point as the meals. “I am overjoyed at opening J. Razzo’s 2 – the response has been terrific and our clientele has been so friendly. LookPerazzo ing forward to many years of business in Westfield,” Perazzo said.

John Perazzo, the owner of J. Razzo’s 2, has taken his successful concept from Carmel and brought it to Now open Westfield. “My main attraction to Westfield is that it is a growing community. New offices and housing are being built. I also like that it is a community deep-rooted with old traditions. Between the new and old it is truly a fantastic environment for a new restaurant,” he said. Perazzo opened the petite, 50-seat version of the original on Nov. 21, and brought his most popular dishes with him: spaghetti and meatballs, lasagna, chicken veneto, and fresh fish of the day. According to the veteran restaurateur, some adjoining space is available next to his new restaurant. “I am looking into expanding J. Razzo’s 2 in Westfield,” Perazzo said. “I have opened three other restaurants – The Wall Street/Exchange, Salvatore’s Restaurant and Zing, which was downtown.

Meet your teacher, Christopher Otsu Grade/subject at what school: Fourth grade, Carey Ridge Elementary Number of years teaching: 13 Background/schooling (college & high school): Warren Central High School; bachelor’s degree in elementary education, Indiana University, Bloomington; and master’s degree in teacher leadership, IU, Bloomington Why did you become a teacher? Teaching runs in my family. Both of my parents, my grandmother and two of my uncles in Japan are all teachers of various types. Ever since I was young I wanted to be a teacher. As I grew older and had a lot of great teachers along the way, I realized the impact that they had on their students. Once I realized that I could have a similar impact on so many kids, there was never any doubt in my mind what I wanted to do with my life. What goals do you have for your students? One of the main goals for my students is for them to become more independent thinkers. I want them to ask why, and not just accept answers at face value. This will hopefully lead to them to taking pride in their own education, and create an intrinsic desire to learn. What do you encourage parents to do at home to help their children strengthen

particular skills? Of course I encourage parents to read with their children and be active participants in their education, but I also want parents to push their children to become more responsible for their own actions. I want the kids to learn how to be responsible and not depend on their parents for everything. The earlier they learn this skill, the better. What is your favorite movie? It is hard to pick one, so I am listing multiple movies. The original “Star Wars” trilogy, the “Star Trek” series and the Indiana Jones movies are all great movies. Who is your favorite musician or band? I love all kinds of music, from classical to Barry Manilow and all the way up to Taylor Swift. (This is especially true now that I have a 5-yearold daughter who forces me to listen to many genres of music.) What’s something your students might not know about you? I originally was a music education major in college, and wanted to be a high school band or orchestra director. An unfortunate accident altered my plans, and I am glad it did because being an elementary teacher is such a unique and rewarding job.

Local startup beginning to blossom By Pete Smith • pete@youarecurrent.com A Hamilton County Internet startup company is hoping customers forgo the hassle of finding a Valentine’s Day bouquet at their local florist and instead look for a more modern business idea – a live, blooming plant that can be ordered online and delivered to their door. “The goal is to bring the floral industry into the 21st century,” said Robb Greene, founder of epottingshed.com. Greene’s family has operated a floral company in Noblesville since 1987. Operating out of the green Victorian carriage house next to Noblesville’s City Hall, Greene has just expanded on the family tradition. Greene started the company a year ago using bare-root plants shipped in weekly from select growers around the country.

Greene estimates that about 60 percent of his customers are in central Indiana. Greene said he expects the business to grow once he undertakes a new social media advertising campaign. He’s also considering utilizing Pinterest and online video to capitalize on his product’s visual appeal before he even considers moving out of the family business location. “We kind of want to show that we’re doing it better than anyone else before we think about a bricks-and-mortar location,” he said.

Grand change

Parents’ reaction

By Robert Herrington • robert@youarecurrent.com The opening of Grand Park Sports Complex this spring will change the youth sports climate in Westfield; however, a potential merger will radically change the soccer communities of two Hamilton County cities. cover story The Carmel United Soccer Club and Westfield Youth Soccer Association board of directors voted to form an affiliate soccer club with the Chicago Fire Soccer Club and Major League Soccer. WYSA has voted to support the plan but it is pending approval by CUSC membership which is currently slated for a vote in early March. “WYSA will stay intact, Carmel United will dissolve,” WYSA Executive Director Mark Webber said. “It’s a very unique soccer playing opportunity.”

What it means for players

As the clubs pursue this reorganization, officials said their commitment to the combined 2,600 players remains the top priority. The clubs said that this merger is clearly in the best interest of player development for every player and represents an unparalleled opportunity to offer a better environment for player and coach development. “This affiliation would create one of the most comprehensive youth soccer environments in the Midwest, if not the country, for our players and families,” CUSC President Ken Yerkes said. When looking at the pyramid of play of youth soccer, Webber said the biggest piece is recreation, then academy (U8-U10) at the community level and third is regional travel. “Westfield is extremely strong in those Yerkes three categories. Carmel has been stronger in the elite level programs. By combining the clubs, you’re providing the best opportunities for kids from 4 (years old) all the way up to college,” he said. “One club at one location. I’m not sure you’ll find another club to make that claim.” Webber said there will be multiple teams in every league. “In the various age groups there will be four to eight teams in every group. In the senior age group, five teams of U13-U15; three to four in U16-U18; and six to eight teams in U12 and below,” he said. “There will be a place for everybody to play that wants to play.” Webber said the reorganization would only affect the travel and developmental levels of WYSA – CUSC does not have a recreation league. “U8 to U18 will play at Grand Park. The WYSA rec league will split time between Shamrock Springs Elementary School and Grand Park,” he said. “The recreation league is not exclusively at Grand Park because that is how the membership wants it. It’s so big it is a really easy place to get lost. It’s a lot easier to control rec kids at Shamrock Springs.”

Chicago Fire

The Chicago Fire is the professional MLS club based in Bridgeview, Ill., with an extensive network of player developmentfocused programs in the Chicago area and in nine youth soccer affiliates around the nation. Grand Park, which has 31 soccer fields, will be the home base for the Indiana Fire Juniors, the MLS club’s 11th affiliate. “The Chicago Fire will help us stay on the leading edge of soccer education and methodology,” Webber said. “Their affiliation also includes potential player development programs and programs for the club and its members. The Fire’s contributions will be used to improve local player opportunities at every level of play.” Officials said the new affiliation will include programming to meet the needs of every player, at every age, gender and level of ability. The Indiana Fire Juniors will offer one of the most inclusive, well-rounded player development platforms in the United States. “The Carmel United Board and staff look Webber forward to working together with WYSA and the Chicago Fire in this joint venture for the betterment of youth soccer in Indiana,” Yerkes said. Organizers said the affiliation provides professional support for coaching education and development, marketing and sponsorship, player curriculum enrichment and opportunities to participate in MLS affiliate exclusive programming such as the MRL-Pro Youth Soccer Division and Chicago Fire Coaches Club. “Chicago Fire contributions will directly impact player, coach and club development at every level,” Paul Cadwell, Chicago Fire’s director of youth soccer, stated.

Westfield parent Dave Turner, whose son plays for the U14 Select Soccer Club, is concerned about the influx of players this plan proposes. “I just don’t agree with that,” he said. “I don’t understand why Westfield needs Carmel. That’s an awful lot of kids.” Turner said he understands why the Chicago Fire is interested in having Grand Park as a home base, but said the timing so close to its opening is questionable. “Westfield pays taxes on the place. It’s just frustrating,” he said. “I agree with the Chicago Fire being affiliated with the club, but I think Westfield is more than capable of making that happen by themselves. I don’t know if we need a whole club dissolving and bringing in a whole club’s kids to Westfield.” Carmel parent Anthony Lodato has been involved with the CUSC for the past three years after moving from Michigan. Lodato, whose son plays on the U12 team, said having the best coaches and good facilities are key ingredients for creating a winning program. “I’m excited for my son. It means good coaching, and when you play with good players you become a better player,” he said. “Every parent wants what is best for their children.” Lodato said Westfield has a better recreation program which is good for the future of the club, and the merger means kids get to play with good players under the Fire umbrella. “The kids are kind of excited to wear the Chicago Fire uniforms,” he said. The combination of the two clubs is not an issue for Lodato who said players on his son’s team come from Zionsville, Fishers, Indianapolis and Kokomo. “A lot of the kids in Carmel United aren’t from Carmel. As long as the facilities are good I don’t think most people will have an issue with that (playing in Westfield instead of Carmel),” he said. “It will attract a lot of good players in the area.”

Know more

The Carmel United Soccer Club was formed in 1995 through the merger of three Carmel-based youth soccer organizations. Today, Carmel United serves almost 700 players U9-U23 and has a tradition of player development and club success that includes three national championship titles, multiple regional titles and hundreds of state cup championships. The Westfield Youth Soccer Association was founded in 1982. In the beginning, WYSA was purely a recreational league, but the club grew steadily and added a competitive travel league in 1984. Today, more than 1,900 players participate on WYSA soccer teams. Ages 4 to 74 play in its recreational program, academy program, travel program and an adult program for those who wish to continue playing after their competitive days are over.

FROM THE BACKSHOP

FROM THE EDITOR Good news for homeowners

As Westfield Police Dept. personnel continue to work on the recent armed-robbery case, we find it noteworthy that very few crimes of that nature transpire here. We also wonder, though, whether the conversion of U.S. 31 to a freeway will embolden more would-be criminals. After all, Fishers’ proximity to I-69 often is cited as a quick-escape reason, and stickups happen there from time to time. With U.S. 31, the same “opportunity” would be afforded crooks. In the early evening hours of Jan. 30, a man in the 800 block of South Union Street was inspecting his truck for trouble, when two black males robbed him at gunpoint of his wallet and identification. He told police the man with the gun was 5-foot-8 and the accomplice was 5-foot-6. No further description or information about the suspects was known at press time. Anyone with information about this incident is urged to call the Criminal Investigations Division of WPD at 773.1300 or Crimestoppers at 262.8477. The victim is fortunate to have escaped unharmed. ••• It’s a small one, but here’s another reason why your tax dollars will be at peril with an investment in mass transit. The communications folks at IndyGo warned folks in a press release last week that, in the event of snow, we should allow for extra travel time to and from our destination; plan for delays due to icy streets, heavy snowfall and traffic congestion; watch our footing as snow and ice can make sidewalks, steps and bus floors slippery; hold onto the railing when boarding and alighting; and dress warmly for potentially longer wait times at bus stops. Wow. You can’t make up this stuff. ••• In observance of Presidents’ Day on Feb. 17, the United States Postal Service will be closed. That means delivery of your edition of Current will be delayed one day to Feb. 19.

There are two sure things in life – death and taxes. Due to strategic planning and development, the latter will be a little easier on Westfield residents this year. Mayor Andy Cook said the city’s planning is paying off in real money for taxpayers as the city’s tax rate has dropped by four cents on the dollar, from 84 cents to 80 cents per $100 assessed valuation. “I’m very proud of the work our community is doing,” Cook stated, adding Tax rates are comprised of six categories – city, county, schools, library, solid waste and township. “We’ll keep working hard to make sure Westfield is the place you want to be.” Four cents may not seem like a lot, but that’s a home with an AV of $100,000 could save $40. What’s not to like about the government taking/needing less of your pay? Cook attributes the accomplishment to an increase in assessed valuation, as well as the retirement of a $2 million general obligation bond. He also stressed the importance of strategic commercial development in the area. “One of my goals as mayor is to diversify commercial development in order to alleviate the burden on taxpayers,” he stated. “As our community continues to work together on great initiatives like Grand Park, we will hopefully be able to help more of our residents keep more money in their pockets.” According to the last Dept. of Local Government Finance report, Westfield’s Non-Utility Expenditures per Capita in 2010 were $384.18. How does that compare to other Hamilton County municipalities? The state average was $684.46 and only Atlanta had a lower rate, $305.83. Fishers ($481.47), Arcadia ($456.74) and Cicero ($639.10) were also below the state average, while Sheridan ($824.46), Noblesville ($977.03) and Carmel ($1,009.72) were all well above the state average. “I say we are more efficient than any town or city in Hamilton County,” Cook said.

Failing infallibility

Commentary by Terry Anker

There are few things that frustrate us more than making mistakes, especially big mistakes. Not only do they point towards our own fallibility but they also remind us to slow down and pay attention to the details of what we do. To be sure, there is a distinction between culpability for one’s own actions and an unpreventable error resulting from circumstance. And, the space between the two is often difficult to measure. Yet, we know when we have failed through our own folly. Recently, I led the charge in insulting an important partner and embarrassing myself proving that I’m failing infallibility. Not as attentive as I should have been to the bulk of e-mail and other communications that shower us each day, I misinterpreted an important message and took action without confirming the veracity of my understanding. Ultimately, I ended up embarrassing the truly good person while at the same time making an ass of myself. Kudos for multitasking! By the time the error was discovered, harm

had been caused and the opportunity to fix the transgression had passed. Certainly, the victim of my actions was magnanimous and thoughtful (in a way that I’m not sure I would have been mature enough to be); but, the frustration over the error hangs with me. How many mistakes do we make that go unrecognized? How many opportunities do we miss to do the right thing? How many people are harmed in silence? Many of us glide through life with rare repercussion for our own error. We are insulated from failure either by previous success or by personal advantage. Yet so many, unsheltered by accumulated goodwill, live in peril of a single transgression. When we imagine ourselves to hardly stumble in a gaffe, is it more likely that we seldom are held to account for our actions? Terry Anker is an associate editor of Current Publishing, LLC.

A world of difference Commentary by Dick Wolfsie My wife and I were staring at our bookcase the other day. We used to refer to it as an entertainment center, but the cassette humor player broke, so now we’re just calling it like it is. The shelves needed a little rearranging, so I suggested we bring up a few knick-knacks from the basement and get rid of that old set of “World Book Encyclopedias.” “Why do we need it?” I asked Mary Ellen. “We have our smart phones, a Kindle and a computer.” That’s what I said, but the truth is those books hold some great memories and we still occasionally go to them for quick info, as long as we’re researching something that happened before 1989. In my fourth-grade classroom I saw my first shelf full of those magical books. I was so intrigued with the idea that all this information could be packed into one place that I snuck the “A” book home to read over the weekend. This was quite the feat, far more difficult than hiding the slim XYZ volume under my jacket. That Friday night I read the first entry, and to this day I know a lot more about aardvarks than is really necessary, such as that the scientific name for the group that animal comes from is Tubulidentata. I skipped right to the last entry because I always like to know how books end. I learned about ancient Aztec ruins. This has remained a problem for the past 50 years because

at cocktail parties when the conversation turns to aardvarks or the Aztecs, I confuse Tubulidentata with the Aztec city of Tenochtitlan. How embarrassing is that? By the way, the aardvark article in our 1989 edition hadn’t changed since when I was in elementary school. Every item in the “World Book” is followed by the writer/researcher’s name. The aardvark entry, for example, was written by Dr. Anne Dagg, who, Google tells me, is still a zoologist at the University of Waterloo. But the aardwolf article that follows was written by Frank Golley, a real estate agent in Georgia. When it got down to the publishing deadline, “World Book” couldn’t find a real expert, so they just picked a guy who had one as a pet. My only other gripe with my beloved “World Book” is how it begins the Indiana section: “Indiana is a small state ... it covers the smallest area of any state in the Midwest … no other state west of the Appalachian Mountains is smaller.” Here’s what Wikipedia has to say: “Indiana is the 38th largest by area and the 16th most populous of the 50 United States.” Wikipedia makes Indiana sound much more appealing. I say this as the second smartest person in my marriage.

A working mom’s job hard enough Commentary by Danielle Wilson

F E B R UA RY

22 Heart disease is the number one killer of women, but do you know why? You are invited to join Community Physician Network cardiologist Nanette Oscherwitz, MD, for a special seminar on women and heart health. Heart disease affects women differently than it does men, with signs and symptoms that go beyond typical chest pain. Don’t miss this chance to learn: • Risk factors for heart disease • Signs and symptoms of heart disease in women • How to manage stress for a healthier heart • How to exercise for a healthy heart • What heart screenings are available and are they right for you

I was talking with some fellow working moms (WMs) the other night, and I heard a story that got me so fired up I’m writing a humor column about it. Read on and be appalled. WM was feeling guilty about not spending enough time with her children and decided to take a day off to simply play with her kids. They’d sleep in, go to Starbucks and “pretend” to work on laptops while they sipped coffee and hot chocolate, ate a fun lunch out, and then maybe saw a movie or went bowling. They’d talk, laugh, hug and create beautiful memories. More importantly, WM would assuage her guilt and all would be right in the world. But of course everyone was grumpy the morning of the much-anticipated Bonding Day, and no one really wanted to get dressed and go out. But, chillin’ at the coffee shop was on the schedule, so WM plowed ahead. An hour later, after her sugar-crazed rugrats had completely ignored multiple harshly whispered pleas to calm the frick down, she decided to cut her losses and pack up. Better luck at Stop No. 2. Here’s where it got interesting. Another patron, a woman mind you, had the nerve to criticize her parenting as she was leaving. To. Her. Face. I know! Instead of empathizing with a “Don’t worry about it, honey, we’ve all been there,” or even better, offering a “Can I help you?”

Ms. High-and-Mighty touted her Christian beliefs and suggested that maybe WM should have just stayed home. Can you believe that? I just want to punch her! WM ended her morning crying in the car and feeling even guiltier than before. Way to go, lady. We’ve all witnessed our kid meltdowns in a nice restaurant or the checkout aisle at Meijer, but who in her right mind actually says something when she sees the chaos unfolding? And I’m sure this woman thought she understood the situation perfectly, and that she was doing her good deed for the day, but all that hag managed was to ladle a huge helping of guilt on WM, who was already beyond frustrated and disappointed. Admittedly, I judge other moms all the time, but I would never express it out loud for two reasons: I’m the blackest pot on the stove and karma’s a (rhymes with itch). Listen, people: Being a mom is tough, and working moms constantly struggle to find a good balance between career and home. Please don’t add to the scales by dishing out unsolicited advice. Instead, try putting yourself in her position and remember how challenging parenting can be. A few kind words in solidarity can make all the difference, particularly to WMs. Peace out.

The Bahia Orchestra Project from Brazil has committed to playing Latin-American compositions in its repertoire. (submitted photo)

Brazil’s best orchestra to team with French pianist By Jay Harvey • editorial@youarecurrent.com As an example of what music can do for poor kids, Venezuela’s El Sistema has inspired many other musical education programs Music around the world with social purposes behind them. Its Simon Bolivar Youth Orchestra brought to prominence conductor Gustavo Dudamel, now music director of the Los Angeles Philharmonic. One of the fruits of El Sistema’s success is NEOJIBA/the Bahia Orchestra Project, which sits atop a similar pyramid of musical training in the Brazilian state of Bahia. Conducted by its founder, pianist Ricardo Castro, the 100-member youth orchestra, established in 2007, will be near the end of a two-and-half-week North American tour when it appears at the Palladium. The Bahia Orchestra Project is already known in Europe, having played concerts in Berlin, Lucerne and London (where its featured guest artist was superstar pianist Lang Lang). For its Carmel appearance, it will welcome another well regarded, if not quite as famous, pianist as soloist - Jean-Yves Thibaudet. He’s a native of France now living and performing in the U.S.

French pianist Jean-Yves Thibaudet will be the guest soloist during the collaborative performance at the Palladium.

Thibaudet will be featured in Maurice Ravel’s Piano Concerto in G major. That’s one of two piano showcases on the program. By special request of Center for the Performing Arts management, the Bahia ensemble will also play George Gershwin’s “Rhapsody in Blue,” with Castro as soloist. Center spokesman John Hughey said the request was made to highlight the location of the Feinstein Initiative and its Great American Songbook vocal competition at the Palladium,

and because Gershwin is considered among the greatest American songwriters. Other works on the Palladium program are Peter Tchaikovsky’s Romeo and Juliet FantasyOverture, two movements from Heitor VillaLobos’ “Bachianas Brasileira” No. 2 and Arturo Marquez’s “Danzon 2.” The latter two works — by Brazilian and Mexican composers, respectively — represent the Bahia Orchestra Project’s commitment to LatinAmerican repertoire. Bahia is a historically significant part of eastern Brazil, with geographical diversity crowned by a famous 685-mile coastline. It’s one of 26 Brazilian states and its largest city, Salvador, was established in 1599 and became the country’s historical capital. Two important cultural traditions of Brazil — the carnival and the samba — originated there. Bahia Orchestra Project • Brazilian youth orchestra, conducted by Ricardo Castro; with piano soloist Jean-Yves Thibaudet • 7:30 p.m. Feb. 13 • The Palladium in Carmel • Tickets start at $40. • For more information call 843-3800 or visit www.thecenterfortheperformingarts.org.

PRESENTS

Romantic night remembers Gershwin By Karen Kennedy • karenk@youarecurrent.com This time of year, we all struggle to come up with a mushy and endearing sentiment to add to the Valentine’s prose on the card Music Hallmark has already written for us. Often, we end up adding something devastatingly clever, like, “Love, me.” Don’t you wish you could come up with something like this? I’ve got a crush on you, sweetie pie All the day and nighttime, hear me sigh … The world will pardon my mush ‘Cause I have got a crush, my baby, on you. Nobody expresses love quite like George Gershwin and nothing could be more romantic than sitting and listening to a glorious evening of his music sung by the inimitable Michael Feinstein. Feinstein’s “Gershwins and Me” will be presented at the Palladium on Feb. 16. It will be an evening of songs and stories presented the way only Feinstein can. When he was 20, Feinstein was hired by George Gershwin’s brother, Ira, as an archivist. He wrote a book about those years entitled, “The Gershwins and Me; a Personal History in Twelve Songs.” Feinstein will sing songs from the Gershwin songbook interspersed with tales from the book. He also will share the stage with the winner of 2013’s Great American Songbook Competition, Julia Goodwin, who recently performed with him

at the legendary New York jazz club Birdland. “I have read Michael’s book and cannot wait to hear these stories in person,” said John Hughey, director of external relations for the Center for the Performing Arts. “It’s going to be a beautiful tribute to the Gershwins. We all adore Michael for his musical talents, but he’s an amazing writer and storyteller, too. No one other than Michael could share these stories. He lives and breathes American music and makes us proud of our history as he brings these songs to life.” Forget the chocolates. Take your Valentine to an evening he or she will remember forever.

Tips to increase your metabolism Commentary by Karen Adkins Whether people are trying to lose weight or want to prevent weight gain, metabolism is usually part of the discusnutrition sion. The speed at which the body burns calories – called “metabolic rate” – is different for everyone and is based on a variety of factors, including age, gender and genetics. Patients often ask what they can do to boost their metabolic rate. Here are a few suggestions: Build muscle and stay active – The more muscle you have, the higher your metabolic rate – even at rest. In fact, every pound of muscle burns six calories each day, while fat burns just two. Exercise, especially high-intensity aerobic exercise, can increase metabolism in the hours following a workout. Eat more often – Having small meals or snacks every three to four hours keeps your metabolism up and running. Drink water – Your body needs water to use calories, so even mild dehydration can slow metabolism. Drinking a glass of water or an unsweetened beverage before meals helps. Increase protein – It takes more calories to digest protein than to digest fat or carbohy-

drates. Although eating a balanced diet is important, choosing more servings of healthy proteins, such as turkey, fish, eggs, beans, nuts, white chicken meat, lean beef and tofu, can increase metabolism. Choose green tea – The combined benefits of caffeine and catechins in green or oolong tea can boost metabolism for a couple of hours and may help your body burn more calories during moderate exercise. Add some spice – Believe it or not, spicy foods have benefits when it comes to increasing metabolism. Although their effect is temporary, if you eat spicy foods often, the benefit could add up. Consider adding chopped red or green peppers or red pepper flakes to foods. Diet sensibly – Very low-calorie diets can stall metabolism. You may lose weight, but much of this is likely muscle, which will slow your metabolism in the long run. Plus, very low-calorie diets often mean you aren’t getting the nutrition you need for optimal health. Talk to your doctor about a diet plan that’s right for you.

Time to organize for tax season Commentary by Adam Cmejla I’m sure certified public accountants out there will appreciate this, but the more proactive you are in gathering your tax docufinance ments, the easier your return can be prepared and filed. For some, this can mean a faster refund. Those of us who will pay can rest assured that we can still wait to drop our check into the mail until April 15. Look back before looking forward One of the best things to do when preparing to file 2013 taxes is to look at your 2012 return and determine if there have been many changes. A CPA firm we work with even sends out a “tax prep worksheet” that has information from 2012’s return already populated. Chances are good that things haven’t changed too drastically for you from year to year, so this can help you remember which IRS forms, schedules and reporting documents to gather. What documents are needed? It’s a good idea to have a big envelope or file folder on your desk that you can drop documents into as they arrive in the mail. If you are not a small business owner or independent contractor, your list may be short: W-2(s), 1099-INT(s), perhaps 1099-DIV(s) or 1099-B(s), Form 1098 (mortgage), a 1098-E(s) if you have those wonder-

ful student loans, and Form 5498-SA if you have made HSA contributions (including employer contributions). If you are an independent contractor or freelancer, you will need your 1099-MISC(s). This is also when self-employed business owners should compile every bit of documentation related to business expenses: meals and entertainment, travel, office expenses, mileage, etc. Every dollar spent in the business has the potential to reduce your taxable income, thus your tax liability. Use this time to prepare for 2014 With the changes in the tax law that took effect in 2013, this year’s tax season has the potential to be more unpleasant than previous years for some. This is also a great time to sit with your advisor and plan a strategy for 2014. The phrase “asset location” is going to be ever more important in the current tax environment. Remember, being proactive is always more costefficient than being reactive when it pertains to your overall net worth. Adam Cmejla is president of Integrated Planning and Wealth Management, a financial services firm in Carmel providing comprehensive retirement planning strategies to individuals near or in retirement. He can be reached at 853-6777 or adam@integratedpwm.com.

DISPATCHES Bye-bye tax breaks - Two proposals in President Barack Obama’s 2015 budget could curb retirement tax breaks for the rich. The first would limit savers’ combined balance across tax-preferred accounts. Last year, the president introduced the idea of prohibiting contributions to tax-advantaged retirement accounts like IRAs, 401(k)s and pensions when a person’s combined balance exceeds a certain level. Last year, for instance, the limit would have been $3.4 million for someone who was 62, but just $1 million for someone who was 40, according to a Tax Policy Center report. Secondly, there’s a proposal to cap the value of deductions for retirement savings contributions. Every year he’s been in office, Obama has proposed limiting the tax benefit of itemized deductions, as well certain tax exclusions, to 28 percent of the amount claimed. The Tax Policy Center estimates the proposal would affect mostly individuals who make more than $200,000 and married couples above $250,000. SOURCE: CNN Money What customer service? - The IRS could answer only 61 percent of the calls it received from taxpayers during the 2013 fiscal year, National Taxpayer Advocate Nina E. Olson said in a report released to Congress in January. That means that the rest of the calls — about 20 million — just didn’t get through, the independent taxpayer advocate said. Taxpayers who got help had to wait a long time for it. The taxpayer advocate said callers who got through were on hold for an average of nearly 18 minutes. Olson blamed a lack of resources. The overall IRS budget has been cut every year since the 2010 fiscal year, her report said, and the amount allocated for training has been slashed significantly as part of that. It’s unlikely that things will get better this year. The spending bill the House and Senate passed last week includes another cut to the IRS budget. Given its limited resources, the IRS said that in 2014 it will stop preparing tax returns for people who need help, such as the elderly and disabled. The agency also plans to answer only “basic” tax law questions. SOURCE: CNBC

Local company rewards investors - Baldwin & Lyons announced that at its regular quarterly meeting, the company’s board of directors declared a regular quarterly dividend of $.25 per share on the company’s Class A and Class B common stock. The dividend per share will be payable March 5 to shareholders of record on Feb. 19. Young Americans scarred by financial crisis - Last month, UBS Wealth Management Americas released its quarterly Investor Watch report, which labeled millennials (which it defines as people ages 21 to 36) as the most fiscally conservative generation since the Great Depression. The majority of millennials surveyed said that the best advice they ever got was to save money, a switch from every other generation that cherished investment advice above all other financial tips. As a result, millennials aren’t buying into the purported merits of long-term investment and market chasing. Only 12 percent would invest some unexpected extra income in the market, and only 28 percent see long-term investment as key to success. As of last year, nearly 300,000 U.S. workers with college degrees were earning minimum wage. And the Center for College Affordability and Productivity reported that nearly half of the college graduates from the class of 2010 are working in jobs that don’t require a bachelor’s degree. A full 38 percent have taken gigs that don’t even require a high school education. SOURCE: MSN Money

In defense of ‘alright’ Commentary by Jordan Fischer In a previous column, I wrote about how “alright” isn’t “all right.” Today, I thought we could visit some counterargugrammar guy ments. This is going to be fun. First, we’ll look at the history of “alright.” Our friend Merriam-Webster says it’s been around for a while. Dating its first known use to 1887, Webster says, “The one-word spelling alright appeared some 75 years after all right itself had reappeared from a 400-year-long absence. Since the early 20th century some critics have insisted alright is wrong, but it has its defenders and its users.” Webster goes on to say that despite its detractors, “alright” is frequently used in journalistic and fictional writing. (Note here: AP style says never to use “alright.”) How about the Oxford English Dictionary? You might be surprised to find the esteemed publication is even more lenient toward “alright.” The dictionary notes, “Similar ‘merged’ words such as altogether and already have been accepted in Standard English for a very long time, so there is no logical reason to object to the one-word form alright.” That’s an interesting argument – though one might counter it by pointing out that “all ready”

and “already” have two distinct meanings. Can the same be said for “all right” and “alright?” “All ready” means exactly what you would expect: wholly equipped or prepared. “Already,” on the other hand, is an adverb which signifies an action occurred “by or before a stated or implied time.” Now, do “all right” and “alright” have distinct meanings? Based upon examples I’ve found, and my own sense of how I would use it colloquially, I would have to say no. “All right” seems to be used in a literal sense – everything is completely fine – and “alright” seems to have developed as the more figurative form – everything is OK, but not great. I’ll finish today by saying I’m partial to “alright” when used colloquially. I think American speakers intuitively understand the difference between something being “all right” and being just “alright.” That being said, I’m not sure “alright” passes muster to be used in formal writing … which is too bad, because it’s really an all right word.

“All right” seems to be used in a literal sense – everything is completely fine – and “alright” seems to have developed as the more figurative form – everything is OK, but not great.

A few first-aid techniques owners can do

Checking gums Healthy gums are pink and moist. Pale, white or blue gums can signal a problem such as shock or anemia, which is a low red blood cell count. Pets The best place to check the gums is a couple millimeters above the canine tooth (a millimeter is slightly less than a third of an inch). Lift up your dog’s muzzle and press lightly with your finger on the gum area above the canine tooth. It should return to pink color within a couple of minutes. Taking the pulse The number of heartbeats per minute varies by size, with larger dogs having a slower rate. It is good to know your dog’s normal rate. If it is usually 80 and is now 150, that can mean he is in trouble. A rapidly beating heart can indicate shock or pain. To take your dog’s pulse, lay him on his right side. Then follow these steps: • Gently lift his hind leg away from the lower hind

leg. • Place two fingers as high as possible on the inside of the leg where it meets the body. • Feel for a recess in the middle of the leg about halfway between the front and back. This is where the blood vessels are located and where you’ll find the pulse. • Count the number of pulses in 10 seconds and multiply that number by six to give you the beats per minute. If you are unsure of how to take a pulse, ask your veterinarian or vet technician to show you on your dog the next time you are in for a visit. Helping a choking dog If your dog is choking on food or a toy and is conscious, approach it cautiously to avoid being bitten. Open its mouth and carefully sweep the inside with your finger to dislodge the object. Pull the tongue forward. If you cannot dislodge the object, you’ll need to perform these abdominal thrusts: • If you can lift your dog, hoist it by its front legs

with its spine against your chest and wrap your arms around it under the ribs. Make a fist with one hand, place your other hand over your fist and give five rapid abdominal thrusts, lifting your fist in an inward and upward motion. Just be as gentle as you would be if you were working on a baby. • If your dog is too big to lift, place it on its side. Put the palms of your hands below the rib cage and give five rapid abdominal thrust is an inward and upward motion. • Check its mouth to see if the object has been dislodged. I will have a few more first aid suggestions in my next article.

Eye-catching behavior – Certain body language will alert owners to possible eye distress. If your cat is constantly squinting or pawing at her eye area, give her eyes a good inspection. Wipe away any crusty gunk from your cat’s eyes with a damp cotton ball. Always wipe away from the corner of the eye, and use a fresh cotton ball for each eye. Snip away any long hairs that could be blocking her vision or poking her eyes. Try not to use eye washes or eye drops unless they’ve been prescribed by your vet. If you notice unnatural discharge during your grooming session, consult your vet. Source: www. aspca.org

Meknes is one of Morocco’s former royal cities, along with the better known Fes, Marrakech and Rabat. Meknes is famous for buildTravel ings erected by a 17th-century ruler who fancied himself the equal of French King Louis XIV and holds a world record for virility. Moulay Ismail ibn Sharif, claiming to be a descendant of Muhammad, became the Sultan of Morocco in 1672. Ismail moved his capital from Fes to Meknes and set about erecting palaces and other buildings to match his image of Versailles. He reportedly used 25,000 slaves in his projects, many of them Europeans captured by Barbary pirates operating from Moroccan ports. Some of the building materials may have been plundered from Volubilis, a nearby city with buildings dating to Roman times. Ismail’s famous stable housed 12,000 horses under a single roof supported by stone arches. Three long corridors intersected at the entrance, allowing one attendant to monitor all the horses simultaneously. An enormous granary adjoining the stable stored grain at controlled temperatures to enable both the horses and the residents to survive a long siege. A wheel inside the granary pulled water from an underground

stream. When construction at Meknes was complete, 15 miles of walls surrounded the city. Ismail, who led huge armies of soldiers from sub-Saharan Africa against his rivals, reportedly placed 10,000 skulls atop the walls to warn prospective attackers. Ismail maintained good diplomatic relations with Louis XIV, but was rebuffed in his efforts to marry the French king’s daughter. Not to worry; Ismail had enough wives and concubines to sire at least 867 children. Because of his military successes and his buildings at Meknes, Moulay Ismail is considered one of Morocco’s greatest rulers despite (or perhaps because of) his reputation for ruthlessness. A 1755 earthquake destroyed many of the buildings in Meknes, and Ismail’s successors moved the Moroccan capital to Marrakech. The stable and granary have been partially restored and they, along with Ismail’s mausoleum, are open to visitors. Ismail’s record for fathering the most children of any man in history remains untouched. Don Knebel is a local resident who works for Barnes & Thornburg LLP.

START THE NEW YEAR OFF RIGHT WITH 20% OFF ANY WELLNESS SERVICE OR YOGA PACKAGE NOW THROUGH FEB. 28, 2014. CALL 317.580.0101 TO LEARN MORE ABOUT OUR WELLNESS & YOGA OFFERINGS. TOP 5 BENEFITS OF YOGA Over the last few years, yoga has taken over pop culture. Everyone is doing yoga, talking about doing yoga, or fully implementing yoga in their daily lives. We have included yoga as part of our services in conjunction with the series of nutrition and wellness menu items. Here are our top five reasons why we believe yoga is good for everyone’s everyday life: 1. Yoga is for everyone – It’s meant to relax, rejuvenate, recharge, release, and refresh your inner connection to your body and mind. Allow yourself to appreciate the time you are giving to yourself and relax. It doesn’t happen as often as we need it. 2. Yoga teaches you to understand your body – The practice of yoga serves as a link to the acceptance of our body. One can learn physical, mental and emotional strengths. Learn to accept your body for what it is and connect with your needs. Let your body tell you what it needs to be worked on instead of the other way around. 3. Yoga serves as a great way to recover after workouts – Your body needs to release toxins after every workout and drinking a lot of water isn’t always enough. Yoga gives the body the opportunity to stretch out while building core strengths. Every stretch releases toxins which allows for more recovery time and less soreness the following days. 4. Yoga incorporates meditation – Giving yourself time to meditate, or just spend some peaceful moments in thought, helps with finding ways to love your present. We all live busy lives, which can translate into worrying about the things we don’t get done. Meditation or reflection lets you refocus and rejuvenate yourself while releasing the stress. 5. Yoga is for you – You get out what you want to get out of yoga. It serves as your time for YOU. Our Yoga sessions are Wednesdays at 7:30am and 6pm, call us at 317-580-0101 for more information.

A GUIDE TO THE PERFECT LASHES Choose the right shade - The best way to get great lashes is to start with the right shade of mascara. Black can work on anyone, but for fair-skinned individuals, and those with red hair, try a brown-black for a softer look. Add Heat - Blast your eyelash curler with your hair dryer before very carefully curling the lashes. Squeeze the eyelash curler for a couple seconds once in the middle of the lashes, and once near the tips. Enhance - For a more dramatic look, apply single, false lashes that come in tiny clumps. Using tweezers, dip the lashes in lash glue and place at the outer corner of your eyelid. Add Volume - A translucent powder at the ends of lashes gives mascara volume and stay-power. Using an eye shadow brush, sweep powder on the ends and tops of your lashes prior to applying your mascara. Apply - Start with the wand at the root of your lashes and wiggle the brush to your ends. Apply multiple coats for a bolder look, being careful not to let it dry between applications, in order to avoid clumping.

It’s February and the coldest month of the year is behind us now. As we slowly begin to warm up, gardening chores will begin to pile up – inside and out. Inside • Check water levels of all indoor plants. • Repot any plants that will outgrow their current pots this coming spring. • Prune any dead foliage or flowers. This will allow for better root growth. Out • Prune landscape plants and fruit trees to control size and remove any dead or damaged limbs. This is especially important with all the damaging snow fall in Indiana. • If late February allows, till up your garden soil to allow oxygen and other nutrients to absorb more readily. • Start seeds indoors for cool season vegetables so they will be ready for transplanting in March. Broccoli, cabbage and cauliflower should be planted now to establish four to six weeks of growth before taking outdoors. • Test any leftover seeds from last year. Place 10 seeds in a moist paper towel kept at 70 degrees. If less than six seeds germinate, then new seeds should be purchased. Noah Herron is owner of Urban Farmer Garden Center, 4105 W. Ind. 32, Westfield. To contact Herron, call 600-2807 or visit www.ufseeds.com.

Feeding the birds – Winter is the season for giving, and there’s no reason to stop with friends and neighbors. It’s fun to decorate a tree in the yard with treats for hungry birds, too. Since their natural food supply of seeds, nuts and insects dwindles when the weather is cold, you’ll be doing more than sharing a few snacks. Leaving fruit, nuts and other treats can attract beautiful birds to your winter yard. Offer the food on an evergreen tree or shrub in your yard that has sturdy branches, or move your Christmas tree outside after the holidays and use it. You can keep the tree in its stand or insert it into a big bucket of wet, heavy sand. Put it in a protected location to make sure it stays upright. www.hgtv.com Garden club – Gardener and certified Tai Chi instructor Victoria Wesseler will present “Tai Chi for Gardeners” during the Herb Society of Central Indiana at 6:45 p.m. March 3 at the John Hensel Government Center, 10701 N. College Ave. The audience is welcome to participate in some Qigong and Tai Chi movements. Handouts will be included. For more information, call 319-2946 or visit www.herbsocietyofcentralindiana.org.

Beat winter ice – Save money and make a better winter window washing fluid yourself. Here is the recipe: 2 quarts rubbing alcohol, 1 cup water and 1 teaspoon dish detergent. You can also pour a similar mixture on walkways to keep them from freezing after you shovel the snow off: 1 teaspoon liquid dish soap, 1 tablespoon rubbing alcohol, and half to 1 gallon of water. Spray a mixture of 3:1 vinegar to water on your car windows and it will keep ice from forming on them. You’ll still have to brush off the snow of course. – gadgetpics.com

Kitchen and bathroom trends for 2014 Commentary by David Decker 2014 has barely begun and already we’ve started to map out the newest trends for your kitchen and bathrooms. Take a look at indoors the following creative ideas that designers have come up with to make 2014 an exciting and innovative year. Kitchen • Floating shelves: Instead of storing their dishes away in cupboards and cabinetry, more homeowners are choosing to display them as part of the kitchen aesthetic. One way to do that is by using floating shelves, which are designed to be installed on a wall without showing any hardware or stabilizing brackets.  • Black countertops: The sleek look of black granite or quartz countertops has wowed homeowners. Many are choosing to pair it with white or light-colored countertops, but the beauty of black is that it can complement virtually any design.  • Brass, black and gold metals: In everything from faucets to cabinet fixtures, brass, black and brushed gold have become trendier than traditional silver.   Bathroom • Standalone tubs: Because they take up less space than a traditional tiled-in-tub, many homeowners are choosing to install

a freestanding tub. This also frees up space to create a luxurious modern shower. Speaking of which … • Luxury showers: When it comes to relaxing and unwinding after a tough day, showers are becoming more popular than bathtubs. Look for spacious showers that don’t include a traditional bench seat. For both • Open/glass cabinet doors: This trend also follows the thought process of displaying items instead of hiding them behind a

cabinet door. Open and glass cabinet doors can make a room feel bright and airy. • Smart electronics and appliances: Green, energy-saving items are still popular among homeowners who are looking to save on their energy bill after an upgrade. Technological advances such as touchless faucets, high-efficiency toilets and dishwashers that conserve water are all in high demand. • Universal design: Universal design has been around since the 1960s but has recently surged in popularity due to the increased emphasis on aging in place. Many homeowners are now designing their homes with aging users in mind; that way, they can continue to live comfortably in their home for years to come. Look for designs that use levers instead of knobs, accessible drawers, easy-to-reach storage and more. For information on these trends and more, visit the Affordable Companies’ Website for news, updates and photos of cutting-edge designs for your kitchen and bathrooms.  David Decker is president of the Affordable Companies, which include Affordable Kitchens and Bathrooms and now Affordable Custom Flooring. They are based in Carmel (575-9540, www.the-affordablecompanies.com). E-mail home improvement questions to david.decker@the-affordablecompanies.com.
