This trip is on my ‘gotta’ list Commentary by Ward Deglar

At the top of my “gotta do” list – things I “gotta do” before it’s too late – is go to Chicago and back by train. And it looks like it’s view gotta happen this summer. If not, chances are Amtrak will no longer offer the trip after October 1. Congress has decided it will fund no Amtrak trips shorter than 750 miles after that date. I don’t know why. Rail travel has got to be the most efficient and inexpensive way to go almost anywhere. The fare for my wife and I to make that trip is $46. No way I could drive for that. After all, CSX boasts of hauling a ton of freight 436 miles on a single gallon of fuel. Considering our combined weight, it would take less than a teaspoon of fuel to take my wife and me to Chicago and back. The Amtrak “Hoosier State” leaves Indianapolis Union Station at 6 a.m. It arrives at Chicago’s Union Station at 10:05 a.m. The Amtrak “Cardinal”

leaves Chicago at 11:01 a.m and pulls into Indianapolis at 1:40 p.m. That means you could spend the whole day doing Chicago, check into a hotel for the night, and after breakfast the next day, enjoy a leisurely ride back home. Or, if you wanted to make the trip just for the sake of doing it, you could grab a quick lunch in Chicago and return the same day. Amtrak tells us 37,000 passengers made that trip last year. It might be even more this year what with gasoline prices lingering near the $4 mark. And next year, who knows? It’s up to the State of Indiana to decide whether the route will continue. The annual federal subsidy has been $4 million. Either way, we’re going. If we like it and the route continues, we may do it again next year.

Habitat for Humanity Boone County kicks off 2013 building season - Earilier this month, Habitat for Humanity of Boone County conducted its first groundbreaking ceremony for future homeowner Anita Kolp at her future home site, 1411 S.

Stormwater fee hearing set

By Janelle Morrison •

The Board of the Zionsville Dept. of Stormwater Management will hold a public hearing on the proposed rates for all Government property owners in the Zionsville Stormwater District. The hearing will be held on May 2 at 6:30 p.m. at Zionsville Town Hall. The board will consider any public comments on the resolution that was approved by the board at its April 9 meeting. The resolution establishes a rate schedule that includes a user fee of $3.86 per equivalent residential unit for all property in the district on a per-month basis. This allocation of expenses includes all the properties in the town that benefit from the storm water management and that place demand on the storm water system. The Stormwater Utility Fee will be phased in during a three-year schedule starting with the

Town District beginning the first year at $1.29 ERU and gradually reaching the full $3.86 by the third year, and in the rural district, a rate of $0.92 ERU in year one and reaching the full $2.74 ERU by the third year.

The Zionsville Town Council has adopted an ordinance reducing the speed limits along certain portions of Oak Street. The portion of Oak Street west of County Road 950 East and extending to the corporate limits near the Stonegate subdivision has been reduced from areas of 50 and 55 miles per hour to a consistent 45. New signs will be erected within the next two to three weeks. The decision to reduce the speed limit was based on a speed study, intersection sight distance study and general evaluation of the geometry (driveways, hills, etc.) conducted by the town engineering firm of Beam, Longest and Neff, LLC.

Your weight loss journey starts here.

A Call To L.I.F.E. puts you on a path to losing weight and staying healthy. If you struggle with your weight and want to get on the path to better health, now’s the time. But with all the diet and exercise options out there, it can be overwhelming when trying to make the right choices for your lifestyle. At St.Vincent, we realize everyone is different, and that losing weight successfully is a unique process for each individual. That’s why St.Vincent developed A Call To L.I.F.E. (A Lifetime of Individual Fitness and Eating). A Call To L.I.F.E. is a personalized program that helps people lose weight through lifestyle modifications and long-term weight management. The goal of the program is not rapid weight loss—instead, it equips people with the skills and knowledge they need to achieve and maintain a healthy weight for a lifetime. “A Call To L.I.F.E. takes an holistic approach toward weight loss,” said Dr. Lori Hurst, director of the A Call To L.I.F.E. program at St. Vincent Carmel Hospital. Dr. Hurst graduated from the Indiana University School of Medicine in 2002, and completed her family medicine residency at Ball Memorial Hospital in Muncie, Indiana. She has facilitated



successful weight management workshops since 2007. “We don’t just stick to a standard plan for our participants.” Dr. Hurst said. “We tailor the program to their body, their needs and their goals.” Participants in A Call To L.I.F.E. will meet with qualified health professionals over the course of 20 visits during a seven-month period. These health professionals include a doctor, a dietician, a psychologist and a physiologist. The first 10 weekly sessions include weigh-ins, labs and counseling. The next 10 bi-weekly sessions are designed to help you transition to greater personal accountability. “Our results with the A Call To L.I.F.E. program have been excellent,” said Dr. Hurst. “Patients who complete the program have averaged an 12 percent loss of body weight after seven months, which is higher than the national average for medical weight loss programs.” If you’re serious about setting weight loss goals, making long-term positive lifestyle changes and losing excess body weight for good, A Call To L.I.F.E. might be the right program for you. For more information about how you can become a part of A Call To L.I.F.E., call 317-582-8030 or visit

Local marathoners beat the blast By Julie Osborne • Five Zionsville residents participated in last week’s Boston Marathon and all were able to complete the race before the bombs boston exploded near the finish line. Most were safely back in their hotel rooms, resting after finishing the race and watched the newscasts that were happening just below. John Wolff, a first-time Boston marathon runner, was staying at Hotel 140 .2 miles from Copley Square, where the finish line was. He finished the race less than 3:20 and was back in his room when the explosions occurred. “My wife and I stayed in the hotel until 6 p.m., and then we ventured out to get something Wolff to eat,” Wolff said. “Runners and families were still milling around on the sidewalks next to heavily armed officers. Nearly everyone within eyesight had a mobile phone next to their ear. There was a lot of confusion and misinformation.” But not enough to discourage him from running again. “I would absolutely run the Boston Marathon again. It’s the running version of the Super Bowl, and I was thrilled to be there. I spoke with other participants and the consensus was that we would not let the cowardly actions of a few

We felt like it was a risk, but we didn’t have anywhere to go. I just felt so lucky that my wife and I were together when it happened.” The scene the next day was otherworldly. “On Tuesday, the FBI and soldiers with automatic weapons were in the hotel lobby,” Kelly said. “It felt like we were in a different country. It was very surreal. You can’t get your head around it when you’re in the moment. It was very sad.” Timing was everything on marathon day and meant life or death for participants and family members.

beat the bombs. “The day started vibrant and exciting. Everyone was in the marathon spirit, and the spectators were awesome. It was one of the best marathons I’ve had,” he said. “But, leaving was completely different. We left on Monday night at 8 p.m. and the airport was deserted. People were afraid to fly.” Even though he ran at a slower pace than his usual 3-hour time because of an injury. He still reached the finish line in 3:15, and his pace may have saved his family. Bouaichi said that shortly after he showered and came back downstairs after the race, he realized how close his family was to the tragedy. “Later, I started to connect the dots. It could have been us. Where my daughters were standing, that’s exactly where the bomb was – in front of Forum restaurant. They were leaning on that mailbox taking my picture. If I came in an hour later, that would have been us.” Amy Biggs, the only female runner from Zionsville, also finished the race about an hour before the blasts but was unable to be reached for comment before press time. Charlie Edwards, a former Boston Marathon runner who also qualified this year but withdrew because of an injury, said he didn’t feel fortunate to have missed it. “I don’t feel fortunate. The Edwards whole event is unfortunate,” he said. “I felt for everyone who was there. It’s a great event.”

The ‘park doctor’ is In

By Janelle Morrison • Tom Melind, a member of the Lions Club and a 23-year resident of Zionsville, has been at the helm of many comRaising the bar munity projects, the most notable being the redevelopment of Lions Park. Melind moved to town in 1990 from Munster after securing a $1-million grant for that city’s park renovation. In 1992, Melind undertook the daunting task of redeveloping the Zionsville Lions Park. Many man hours and materials were donated as a result of Melind’s outreach to neighbors and local businesses. For example, many, loads of dirt were donated to help build up the park and, today, park goers can enjoy the Dow AgroSciences pathway that connects to Lions Park. Melind recruited fellow Lion Steve Snider with The Snider Group who also donated countless man hours and equipment that was necessary to complete the project. “Tom roped me into a few of his projects,” Snider said. “When it was all said and done, it ended up costing nothing for my services but a $20,000 hot dog.” After addressing drainage issues and installations of a parking lot, playgrounds and new ball fields, the final park improvement project cost was $600,000, not including the in-kind donations and volunteer hours that were coordinated by Melind.

In 1997, Melind and Snider repeated their success at a neighboring club’s park in Whitestown. Other refurbished parks directed under Melind include ones in Advance, Michigantown, Lizton, West Point and Clinton. In 2006, Melind wrote, “Park Doctor, How to Revitalize you Park.” Melind also has been an instrumental figure in fundraising and awareness in other areas. He sits on the senior advisory council at the Hussey Mayfield Memorial Public Library, Boone County Senior Services Group and was a co-chair for the grand opening of the Zionsville Performing Arts Center. Melind has been awarded several honors including, the 2003 Sagamore of the Wabash, the highest honor bestowed by the governor of Indiana for distinguished service to the state. “I am just the enabler,” Melind said. “I enable people to make a contribution, and that’s the fun of it.”

Facilities operational at ZCHS

By Julie Osborne •

As of last Thursday, the Zionsville Community High School stadium was back in operation for events, and a temporary accommodafire tion has been made for the spring athletes after lightning struck and ignited a fire in the Zionsville Community High School Team Building in the St.Vincent Health Stadium area. “We’ve located teams from those (Team Building) locker spaces to the inside varsity locker rooms. It’s a viable option to help us get through,” ZCHS Principal Tim East said. “We hope to have the building repaired by the end of the school year and definitely by the fall when school begins. The timeline is broad until the full assessment can be made.” At 4 a.m. last Wednesday, the building, which houses a meeting area and the locker rooms used for football, lacrosse, and track, was stuck by lightning and caught fire. The building housing the concession stand and restrooms was not affected. Zionsville Police were first to arrive and saw fire coming through the roof of the building. From the damage, it appears that lightning struck the southwest corner of the roof but, fortunately, did not engulf the building. “Because of the quick action of the fire departments, the damage was limited,” East said. “It speaks so well of our fire department, assisted

by Whitestown and Carmel.” Firefighters were able to extinguish the fire by 5:20 a.m. No one was inside the building at the time of the fire, and there were no injuries reported. Preliminary damage estimates for the building and contents may reach as high as $200,000, according to fire department officials. ••• Earlier last Wednesday, at 12:28 a.m., the Zionsville Fire Dept. was dispatched to a report of a possible house fire caused by a lightning strike at 1132 Huntington Woods Place. Firefighters arrived to find the homeowners leaving the home. After investigating the home, crews found a fire in the basement and were able to bring it under control within 20 minutes. There were no firefighter or civilian injuries reported. Whitestown Fire Dept. assisted and Perry Township Fire Dept. provided fill-in coverage at Zionsville Fire Station 93.

Kern Bros. Shoes has dedicated half of the store to Zionsville spirit wear.

Family affair Owners of Kern Bros. Shoes share the secrets of their 40-year success story By Chris Bavender •

Kern Bros. Shoes wasn’t even open for the day last week, when a customer walked in for shoelaces. Instead of turning him away, owner Bill Kern greeted him with a smile, rang up his purchase and thanked him for stopping by. It’s that sort of customer service that Bill and his wife, Linda, attribute to the success of their business in Boone Village for the past 40 years. “Service, service, service,” Linda said. “We listen to what our customers want.” High school sweethearts, Bill and Linda had a plan for their future – he would go into the family shoe business, she would teach. “After college I worked for Brown Shoe Co. in St. Louis in their marketing program,” Bill said. “At that time, my dad agreed to form a partnership and open this store.” But, he knew he couldn’t do it without Linda. “We had not been married for even a year when he came to me and said, ‘I want to do this but can’t unless you come with me,’” Linda said. “We were so young when we opened the store.” Forty years later, the business still is going strong. Kern Brothers Shoes originally was established in 1924 in Frankfort by Bill’s grandfather, Ray. “After World War II, my dad went to work for the Frankfort store and became a partner with my grandfather,” Bill said. “Then, I worked there part-time through high school.”

These antique baby shoes were used as a “prop” when Bill Kern’s dad proposed to his mother by hiding the engagement ring inside the shoe. (Photos by Heather Clark)

Meet Bill and Linda Kern

Kern Bros shoes has found its niche through carrying unique brands, like Orthaheel shoes which contain built in orthotics, and are only carried in a few stores throughout Indianapolis.

When it came time to open his own store in 1974, Bill and Linda settled on Zionsville, a growing area at the time. The family shoe shop was originally 2,000 square feet. Another 1,600 square feet was added in 1992 for athletic shoes and Zionsville athletic apparel. When it comes to keeping things running smoothly, the couple has help from Ceil Mattingly, who’s been with the store since the early 1990s, and her sister-in-law, Lisa Mattingly. “We’ve had great people who have been with us, and some have worked for us for long periods,” Linda said. “I feel like they should all be standing behind us because we couldn’t do this without them.” Kern Bros. also employs several high school students. “We’ve been very fortunate to have a great group of kids who want to work for us,” Linda said. “We take them on buying trips with us so that’s been fun – they bring a lot of energy.” “They keep us lifted up,” Bill added. “They help advise us on what their generation wants.” It is the professionalism of their staff, according to Bill and Linda, that customers most often remark on. And, the fact they provide service above and beyond. “Bill has been known to stay if someone calls at closing and has an emergency. We have had to put off family dinners,” Linda said. “Many times he will deliver shoes to someone in a nursing home or if they can’t get out, and I know he does it just because that’s who he is. I think that’s the whole secret to why the business is here and something he learned from his dad and grandpa – the little things behind the scenes.” Both acknowledge how fortunate they are to be able to do busi-

ness in Zionsville. “The support from the community is just huge in our ability to stay in business. They are people who believe in shopping locally, and that’s something unique to this community,” Linda said. “A lot of them are customers who came to us as children and are now bringing their children in and that’s just so much fun to see.” The couple also gives back to the community, sponsoring everything from Little League teams to choral groups. “It’s a symbiotic relationship,” Bill said. “We try to support the community, especially the youth. I feel bad because we can’t do everything, but we try to support as many as we can.” And they will always keep trying to do what they do best – provide customer service with a smile and a thank you.

Growing tolerance It is our position that the Anne Frank Center USA Sapling Project serves as an important reminder of the need for tolerance. One of 11 saplings from the 170-year-old white horse chestnut tree that was Anne Frank’s only connection to nature during the two years her family hid from the Nazis during the German occupation of the Netherlands, was recently planted in the Anne Frank Peace Garden at the Children’s Museum of Indianapolis. The sapling is a living monument to Anne’s pursuit of peace and tolerance, and at the same time will serve as a powerful reminder of the horrors caused by hate and bigotry and the need for collective action when humanity fails. As Anne wrote in her diary, “April is glorious, not too hot and not too cold, with occasional light showers. Our chestnut tree is in leaf, and here and there you can already see a few small blossoms.” May tolerance grow in tandem with Anne’s beautiful chestnut tree. Visit the Anne Frank Peace Garden and enjoy the blossoms in honor of Anne and those like her. And like those who made the Sapling Project possible, there is more good in the world than evil. For more information on the Sapling Project, go to www.childrensmuseum. org.

Is collusion the real threat? Commentary by Terry Anker There are scores of expressions to describe the disposition of government officials to take our money and use it like a venture fund manager. The current nomenclature calls it government entrepreneurship. One wonders if it is an assistant, barrier or competitor with a healthy free-market. Entrepreneurs do great things and change the world, but they also take breathtaking financial risks and routinely fail. The natural government monopoly boasts a gaggle of advantages outpacing even the most competitive private company. In a world where rapacious private businesses are attracted to easy money and public guarantees, shouldn’t government “assistance” be limited to the broadest possible private entrepreneur participation? When speculating on who can claim credit for entrepreneurial success, some would openly assert that the individual entrepreneur “didn’t do that.” Even if one assumes veracity in this supposition, would it likewise be accurate to claim

that government “didn’t do that either?” Indiana is in the black. In fact, the current governor is locked in some James T. Kirk like battle with an alien Republican legislature about the return of some of those tax dollars to those who were overcharged for the services. A balanced budget amendment prevents official largess being unchecked. Yet, we still set aside dollars to spawn home-grown high-tech companies. We build and maintain infrastructure. And, we directly support countless stadiums and billionaire sport team owners. The pressure to undertake ever more expensive and elaborate schemes from entrepreneurial government officials is intense but no more so than the rent-seeking tendencies of entrepreneurs inside the private sector. Is collusion between these two forces the real threat? Terry Anker is an associate editor of Current Publishing, LLC. You may e-mail him at terry@currentincarmel. com.

You’re noticing something different about Current today, aren’t you? You found the paper on which the news and ads are printed to be a little brighter, right? You also noticed that the pages are “stitched” by two staples on the fold, meaning no more loose sheets, correct? You also detected that the paper is ever-soslightly shorter and narrower, we’re guessing. It all is owed to a decision we made to move our printing efforts to a new location. Cox Media Group of Franklin, Ohio, effective with this edition, handles the printing, inserting and packaging tasks for all Current products and the Carmel Business Leader, as well as titles produced by our “sister” company, Times-Leader Publications (The Southside Times, Hendricks County ICON, Center Grove ICON, and the Southside Business Leader and the Hendricks County Business Leader). We’re excited about the change, because we believe it will provide a better reading experience. We’re still printing on paper that contains post-consumer content, and we’re still using low-rub, soy-based ink, which we believe to be important. Our art director, Zach Ross, has made subtle changes to the appearance of the news report, including new typefaces, story identifiers and different ways to package the news. By virtue of his moving ads to the “outside” edges of the paper, he has created something of a news well, which will accommodate a changing news presentation. We hope you enjoy the improvements, and we invite your comments at info@youarecurrent. com. ••• We bade a sad farewell last week to our friend and landscape-business owner, Cliff Bivins, who died all too soon at age 44 on April 14 of respiratory complications.

Not sure I still want ‘it’

Commentary by Danielle Wilson

Despite being a happily married, over-40, ginger from Kentucky, I can apparently still attract the men. Of course, that’s not humor necessarily a good thing. One of my sisters and I decided to road trip to Atlanta for the NCAA basketball semi final game. You may recall my fateful trip to New Orleans last April which culminated in my screaming at Doo through tears, “I am not driving you home!” So this year we left husbands at home for some quality sister time. Louisville won the game, there was very little drama, and apart from never being able to locate the stupid ESPN Gameday set-up − where were you, Jay Bilas? − we had a marvelous time. What I didn’t anticipate, though, was how not having a man constantly at my side somehow equated to, “I’m single and looking for love.” And before you ask, yes, my wedding ring was on and no, I wasn’t dressed in brothel attire. Bachelor number one? A 50-something farmer from Wisconsin at the game. Sure he weighed a little more than 350 pounds and my seat kept catching his thigh fat every time I stood, but Jerry and I hit it off. Maybe too well, in fact. Even after I told him about my four children and brilliant husband, he continued to pay me compliments and insinuate that we should meet up. Luckily the thrill of the victory carried

me out of the arena before I had to address the issue. Sorry, Jerry! Next up, a college student from Michigan. As Sis and I exited the 100-level area of the dome, a very good-looking guy approached, flashed me a gorgeous smile, and said something about tickets. Huh? What? Yes! And when I handed it over, he went straight for the hug. I don’t even embrace friends, let alone strangers, and I know he just wanted my seat, but he had a dimple! No, wait. I have a son not much younger than him. Eeewwww. Mrs. Robinson? I don’t think so. Finally, a total dingbat who was only in town for the free concerts. When I went to the hotel bar later that night, El Ding launched into an abusive diatribe on how badly Michigan was going to beat Louisville in the championship. He obviously considered his little speech some kind of courtship ritual because as soon as my fries arrived and I turned to leave, he offered to buy me a drink. And not as an apology. No thanks, ya loser. I’d rather be with Jerry. So it seems I’ve still “got it.” Just not sure if I want it. Peace out.

Moose tracks in my lasagna Commentary by Dick Wolfsie

Warning: There’s another case of food impropriety in the news. A popular frozen dinner option is being removed from ovens humor over in Scandinavia in another half-baked scandal. Families were waiting to feast on Moose Lasagna, but as the cheese was becoming bubbly and browned, food officials exposed that there was pork in some of these prepared selections. Everyone in Sweden is asking: What is pork doing in my lasagna? People in the U.S. are asking: What is moose doing in your lasagna? Jews in Sweden, all fourteen of them, were upset because the company revealed that the 17,000 portions sold contained 1-percent pork, which the company admitted meant the product was not 100-percent Kosher. Or as my rabbi would say, “Not Kosher.” The bottom line is that even though the manufacturer is pulling the pork-tainted casserole off the shelves, the entrée is still a favorite of many consumers. After all, who doesn’t like pulled pork? For the second time in two months, it’s the conglomerate IKEA that is responsible for this food fiasco. Wanting to be proactive in this debacle, the company set up an 800 number so customers could, in their words, “lodge a moose lasagna complaint.” Everyone thought this seemed like a good idea except the local Moose Lodge, where they got a lot of crank phone calls.

IKEA is basically a furniture company that also sells frozen food, a technique to expand sales like the U.S. Postal Service decision to sell safari hats and dorky shorts so you can look like your letter carrier. IKEA has had a history of mislabeling products, once advertising futons as beds, a ruse that almost worked until people got them home and tried to sleep on them. The details of the porcine-laced lasagna were first revealed by the Swedish newspaper Dagbkadet. Coincidentally, dagbkadet is exactly what a Kentucky farmer says if he finds not moose, but a mouse, in his lasagna. One French newspaper scared the beejeebers out of their readers when they inadvertently mistranslated the story and Parisian diners thought there was meat in their mousse. Even hairstylists got the facts wrong and thought there was pork in their styling products. IKEA is not sure how to win back its customers after so many have suffered this unjust ingestion. PR experts found a snappy slogan they will use to promote the product to ensure people know the issue has been addressed. “You’ve got game!”

Menopause: A celebration of ‘the change’

By Patricia Rettig •

The 40th Anniversary Season heats up in a flash as “Menopause, The Musical” makes its debut at Beef & Boards Dinner Theatre, 9301 N. Michigan Rd., Indianapolis. This hilarious and fun celebration of women and “the change” is live on stage now through May 12. Written by Jeanie Linders, “Menopause, The Musical” is set in a department store, where four women with seemingly nothing in common but a black lace bra meet by chance at a lingerie sale. The all-female cast makes fun of their woeful hot flashes, forgetfulness, mood swings, wrinkles, night sweats and chocolate binges. A sisterhood is created between these diverse women in this uplifting production that includes parodies from the ’60s and ’70s and ’80s. It culminates with a salute to women who are experiencing “the change.” Beef & Boards’ production features Indianapolis residents Judy Bridgewater and Tiffanie Bridges.

Descriptors allow a wine “taster” to relate the aromas and flavors of a wine to determine its overall quality. Tasters, compared to WINE the average wine drinker, attempt to give an objective description (often taking a systematic approach) to what they are drinking where casual enthusiasts simply appreciate the wine but halt their examination there. The primary source of a person’s ability to taste wine comes from their sense of smell. But their personal experiences also play a role in conceptualizing what they are tasting and in attaching a description to that perception. For example, next time you are out with friends, use the description, “she is sassy” for a wine that is bold and brash in flavors. Here are some other terms you might find tasters bringing to the table: • Aromatic – descriptive term for wines of a markedly flowery, spicy or grapy character • Beefy – red wines meaning solid, chunky, four-square • Chewy – wine with a lot of tannin and strong flavor • Clean – wine with no bacterial or chemical flaws and a simple, direct flavor • Deep – full-flavored reds and whites, often applied to wines still not at their peak • Earthy– a slight root vegetable, muddy flavor, not usually complimentary, except for

wines made from Cabernet Franc • Fat – a heavy, sometimes slightly clumsy wine, though if made from ripe grapes it can imply a rather unctuous richness in the wine, sweet or dry • Freshness – youthful aromas, usually associating good acidity with floral or fruit flavors • Fullness – the feel, or weight, of a wine in the mouth • Green – unripe or tart, not necessarily an unattractive taste in the wine • Hard – usually applied to reds which have an excess of tannin • Length – wines flavors continue to evolve in the mouth, even after swallowing • Nutty – usually for dry white wines with a hazelnut flavor • Plummy – big, round, ripe reds • Smoky – flavor from slightly charred oak barrels that have been used in maturation • Spicy – exotic fruit and spice flavors such as peppery • Steely – quality whites for their metallic flavor • Stony – implying a dull, empty dryness Ron Hopwood is a local winemaker and owner of Hopwood Cellars Winery in downtown Zionsville.

Healthy from age 8 to 18

Commentary by Coach Kim Rockey

Wow – we as a society surely have dropped the ball on the age 8 to 18 population when it comes wellness to proper functional fitness and athletic development. Much of the blame can be directed to the systematic removal of physical education in the public schools. Due to budget cuts, our kids are less exposed to proper training when it comes to physical fitness. Instead, we are relying more on a growing segment of volunteers as a group to coach our youth in a variety of sports. Hats off to the volunteers for their time and dedication to the kids. However this coaching group is leaving a large gap in applying proven modalities of functional fitness to help promote proper alignment, movement, stretching, etc. Injury in this age range has skyrocketed in the past 10 to 15 years. Not proactively addressing the childhood obesity epidemic has complicated this issue further. The result: kids are having more significant injuries that have long-term consequences. I will note, however, that there is a bit of a socioeconomic factor built into this equation. Those families that can afford proper training outside the traditional aca-

demic setting will have an advantage for their children. Addressing the issue on a broad scale, let’s focus on: • Proper progressions for developing, age-sensitive bodies • Good fundamental biomechanical movements need to be taught from the very beginning to instill sounds habits of good form • Cross-training/cross-sport/free play – all these elements are equally important for physical as well as social development Going forward, we should aim at the following goals for these age groups: • 8- to 12-year-olds – zero in on specific athletic development skills such as basic functional movement and coordination • 12- to 16-year-olds – introduce weight training with specific protocols • 16- to 18-year olds – mentor them to take physical fitness to the next level Kim Rockey is a trainer, health and wellness instructor, and owner at Indy Core Wellness & Fitness.

Treating skin pigment problems Commentary by Brooke Tetrault Treating pigment-related skin conditions like sun spots can actually be one of the most dramatic improvements DERMATOLOGY in the overall tone and youthfulness of skin. Skin cells called melanocytes produce pigment called melanin, which is the source of skin’s color and a key component of defense against UV exposure. This pigment production can also be the result of exposure to heat and hormonal shifts. When melanocytes no longer respond to the normal rules of growth and melanin production, perhaps from repeated UV damage, they can result in malignancy. It is important to consult with a physician to rule out any suspicion for abnormal lesions, such as melanoma, before undergoing any cosmetic treatment. A yearly dermatologic skin check and proper sunscreen is always recommended. Always be careful if you are pregnant or breastfeeding. For benign, unwanted pigment concerns, one can be fairly aggressive with laser treatments. IPL (Intense Pulsed Light), a flashlamp device, is probably the most popular procedure used for the treatment of pigment. It involves targeting and breaking down the melanin pigment in the

DISPATCHES Spinal health walk – Indiana Spine Group is hosting the We’ve Got Your Back Race & Health Fair, an inaugural 5K, 1-mile fun run/walk and health fair on Saturday. The race steps off at 9 a.m. at 13225 N. Meridian St., Carmel, and the run/walk follows. Event proceeds will support the Spinal Research Foundation, a nonprofit organization dedicated to improving spinal health care through research, education and patient advocacy. The event will also celebrate the achievements of patients who have overcome debilitating neck or back pain to regain their lives, such as honorary event chair Capt.

skin. Patients experience initial darkening of the pigment, which is then naturally exfoliated – or helped along greatly with medical-grade topical skin care during the course of the subsequent days. Medical-grade topical skin care can involve hydroquinone. Less effective treatments like soy-based and lower strength products overthe-counter are mostly recommended for maintenance at best. Hydroquinone has more than 30 years of use in skin care. It can also be misleadingly known as “bleaching” cream, but only inhibits the production of extra melanin. It is a substance that directly inhibits the key enzyme responsible for the final step of melanin (pigment) production, unlike less effective overthe-counter products. In prescription strength, medical-grade quality, over a limited body surface area and under the care of a physician, it is safe. There are so many ways to help treat unwanted skin pigment, and it is always best to seek the recommendation of your skin care physician for dramatic results.

Crib bumper pads exchanged for sleep sacks – Each year, about 2,300 infants die from sudden infant death syndrome. To help families practice safe sleep habits, Peyton Manning Children’s Hospital at St.Vincent, St.Vincent Women’s Services and The Children’s Museum have joined forces to exchange crib bumper pads for a free sleep sack. From now through April 30, infant caregivers may bring crib bumper pads to the concierge desk at The Children’s Museum of Indianapolis, 3000 N. Meridian St., to trade for a free sleep sack, courtesy of St.Vincent. The bumper pads will be given to a local organization to recycle.

The dentist, Horace Wells, committed suicide before he was recognized for figuring it out. –

Housing market down slightly

By Jim Litten •

With more than 2,500 pending sales in March in Central Indiana, overall year-to-date home sales are up 13.1 percent Real Estate compared to this time last year, according to statistics compiled by F.C. Tucker Co. On a monthly basis, March 2013 home sales rose 1.2 percent compared to March 2012, an increase of 30 homes sold in the nine counties that F.C. Tucker tracks. Five of the nine counties reported increased sales compared to March 2012. However, Boone County is off to a slow start. Last month, 80 homes pended in Boone County, a decrease of 15 homes for the first quarter of 2013. • In Zionsville last month, 41 homes pended, which is a decrease of 15 homes compared to March of last year. • Home prices in Zionsville fell slightly last month. The average sales price was $312,408 – a decrease of 9 percent com-

pared to March 2012. • Homes in Boone County aren’t staying on the market quite as long as last year. Last month, homes spent an average of 109 days on the market, but last year they spent roughly 119 days on the market. • Homebuyers are likely noticing fewer available homes. In March 2013, there were 208 homes for sale in Zionsville, a decrease of 16.8 percent compared to March 2012. • Of the pended home sales in Zionsville last month, three were priced $1,000,000 to $1,999,999; six were priced $500,000 to $999,999; seven were priced $300,000 to $499,999; 15 were priced $200,000 to $299,999; and 10 were priced $100,000 to $199,999. Overall, the first quarter of the year is off to a strong start, though results vary across the region. Continued increases in home sales and home prices, and decreases in inventory are positive signs that the Central Indiana real estate recovery is still on solid ground.

MULCH The luxurious Club Car Lounge on The Blue Train in South Africa

Luxury returns to the rails

Commentary by Annie Rogers

In the last few decades, the allure of train travel waned as the relative ease and safety of air travel replaced yesteryear’s Travel glory of traveling by train. Trains became just too slow as Americans’ patience shortened and transportation became a means to an end, not an experience that enhanced our vacation. Recent years have seen a shift, though, as rail travel itself has become the vacation. It now stands alone as a slower paced way to see beautiful scenery in a mode that provides luxury and comfort that airplane travel has long since lost and motor coach travel cannot compete with. At the same time that people are becoming frustrated with the airline industry, the allure of train travel is enjoying a resurgence. A gleaming example of this is the Chicagobased Pullman Car Co. Founded by George Pullman, sleeping cars were introduced to the public in the mid-19th century and renowned for luxury, incorporating art deco design, plush accommodations and superb service. Sadly, Amtrak and commercial airline travel sealed Pullman’s fate and they ceased its luxury sleeping car itineraries in the 1980s. That is, until today. 2013 has witnessed the reemergence of Pullman Rail Journeys with its first itinerary operating between

Chicago and New Orleans. These historically accurate Pullman cars have been enhanced with wireless internet, power outlets and modern showers. The desire is that each iconic journey takes the guest back to a civilized, sophisticated era when getting to your destination was as much fun as arriving at it. Other notable luxury train experiences include the Blue Train in South Africa which operates a 27-hour circuit between Pretoria and Cape Town and includes private butler service, marble bathrooms and gourmet cuisine. Less posh, but nonetheless magnificent, Rocky Mountaineer has glass domed cars that allow guests to fully take in the majesty of the Canadian Rockies as they dine on fabulous food. Golden Chariot explores Southern India with two expansive itineraries and includes such features as a spa and gym. As train travel becomes more and more popular, you should expect to find amazing routes and exemplary service in all corners of the globe. Consider making train travel your next vacation or, at the very least, adding it to enhance your experience in almost any destination.

Ten ways to add joy to your life

Commentary by Sally Brown Bassett, Ph.D.

INDIANA • 46077


One of the greatest compliments I remember ever getting was from my former boss and founder of ATA Airlines, George MikelyoU sons. He said I viewed life like a glass that wasn’t half full or half empty, it was overflowing. I contribute that to always having a Joy List. Here are ten tips that will help bring more joy into your life. 1. Start your own Joy List. Write down 20 things that bring you joy. Don’t over think it. Just write down things that immediately come to your mind, such as soaking in a hot bath with a glass of wine, watching a good movie, reading a novel, eating chocolate, walking in the woods, getting a massage, hanging out with your best friend, etc. 2. Review your Joy List and put an X by those items that you do not do on a regular basis. Put a check mark by those things you do frequently and see which adds up more. Are you doing the little things in life that bring you joy? Try to do something on your list every day or at least once a week. 3. Trust in the following quote: “Live Simply. Laugh Often. Love Much.” 4. Take a yoga class. It will get your endorphins going and bring you calmness. 5. Smile and say hello to strangers 6. Sit with your pet(s). For me, my pets

include a 31-inch mini Palomino horse and a five-pound Yorkie dog. That is joy. 7. Do something that you have always wanted to do. 8. Buy an aromatherapy oil, such as lavender, jasmine, rose or sandalwood that you intuitively choose by sniffing them and seeing which oil attracts you. Use in your bath or for a massage. 9. Sit by a body of water with the intention of just “being.” 10. Find delight in everything! Remember, your glass is overflowing. Until next time… Namaste!

A GIRL’S GUIDE TO PROM DRESSES Strapless This is a perfect style to choose if you’re looking to show off arms and shoulders. Add a simple clutch to maintain ladylike elegance. Short Show off some leg in a prom-perfect mini! Look for this style in a fun sequin fabric to really spice things up!

THE OVERSIZED TOP KNOT The top knot has gotten super-sized! Go for a big ballerina bun when you really want to make a statement. Start by creating a tight pony at the crown of your head, and back comb it into a wild mess. Then, tame it with a paddle brush as you work it into your desired shape. For the most dramatic look, make sure the height of the updo aligns with your chin.

One-Shoulder The one shoulder silhouette is a great alternative to strapless and it looks great with hair up or down. Pair it with a skinny belt and a simple bag and pumps. Open Back Choose an open back style for an unexpected dose of glamour. Pair this style with a simple up-do. Long Sleeves Long sleeves are a great way to balance out a short dress. This style looks great in a bold color. Full Skirt The classic look of a full skirt is definitely a great go-to for prom. Keep your hair and accessories simple and let the dress speak for itself.

Five things not to fuss with Commentary by Holly Lindzy

There are things in nature that appear worse than they are, just as in life. And gardening is a haughty manipulation of nagardening ture where we only win part of the time. That being said, I thought I’d offer some comfort to help you begin this gardening season on a positive note. Buckle up – here are the top five things not to sweat this year, in no particular order. • Lichen on the trees is probably my favorite no-sweat plant issue. It can look like mold on the branches and trunk, when actually it’s part algae/part fungus, and it’s a good indicator that the environment is clean. Score! • Preventing crabgrass … it’s too late. Treat with herbicide or pull like the dickens and make a mental note to apply preemergent granules next March. • Sealing the pruning cuts you’ve made to your tree. Trees will recover from this naturally, assuming the pruning is done properly, and the tree is healthy. Anything you apply to the “wound” is

only going to impede healing and could potentially cause issues for you later. Skip it. • Mulching, if you are tight on money or don’t have the time. Your garden isn’t going to turn on you if you skip a year. Sure, it looks pretty and (I think) smells nice, but your soil can take a pass just once if it has to. Consider turning the existing over to refresh it, instead. • Spraying for “all the bugs!” The ingredient you spray to control the real pest is the same that will wipe out the bees and butterflies. If it’s a must, use a systemic insecticide that’s taken up through the roots into the plant for feeder pests to ingest and suffer from, rather than knocking off the innocent bystanders, too. I leave you with one last thought. Gardening is a hobby where you can get down and dirty with no shame. Take that and run with it. Happy gardening!

Jack-and-Jill can stop squabbles Commentary by David Decker

As anyone who grew up with siblings can attest, having multiple children share a bathroom can create a difficult situation. indoors Most mornings it seems like everyone needs to use the bathroom at the exact same time, leading to squabbles, hassles and running late. If you are looking for a new solution, a Jack-and-Jill bathroom may be the perfect addition to your home. “Jack-and-Jill” refers to a shared bathroom that is connected by two separate bedrooms. Sitcom fans may remember that all six Brady Bunch kids shared a Jack-and-Jill bathroom. If it worked for them, it can certainly work for your family. Let’s take a look at a few ways to design a Jack-and-Jill bathroom that your kids will love. Privacy is the main benefit of a Jack-and-Jill bathroom. The best Jack-and-Jill designs feature a layout that separates the various areas of the bathroom, like the shower and sink areas. That way, one child can be taking a shower while another brushes his teeth without having to compromise any privacy. Jack-and-Jill bathrooms usually feature separated amenities that allow each child to have their own space in the bathroom. So, you may want to install two sinks, two mirrors, two linen closets and two cabinets if space allows. Doubling up helps cut down on crowding and makes it easier to share the space. Cabinet storage can

also help you keep things organized and running smoothly in a frequently used bathroom. Ample storage will cut down on clutter and ensure that each sibling knows where his or her toiletries are located. Kids have a knack for making watery messes in the bathroom. So you’ll probably want to select bathroom flooring that’s equipped to handle spills. Ceramic or porcelain tiles are always a good bet accompanied by a tile baseboard for easy clean up. Once you’ve decided on the layout and flooring, you can start planning the fun design aspects of the bathroom. For a kid’s bathroom, you’ll probably want to plan for versatility. Choose neutral, durable plumbing fixtures and cabinetry designs that can match any design scheme. From there, you can create a fun design backdrop that can be changed once the kids outgrow it. David Decker is president of the Affordable Companies, which include Affordable Kitchens and Bathrooms and now Affordable Custom Flooring.
