Lynette Kidd lost 50 pounds through A Call To L.I.F.E. at St.Vincent. And so can you. Losing weight can be tough. But with A Call To L.I.F.E. program, available at St.Vincent Carmel Hospital, natural weight-loss through healthy lifestyle choices has never been easier. Just ask Lynette Kidd. She lost 50 pounds over a seven-month period while following her personalized A Call To L.I.F.E. fitness and nutrition plan.

“I knew I needed to lose weight, but I wasn’t motivating myself. I had tried various diet and exercise programs over the years, but nothing worked. That’s when I turned to the experts at St.Vincent. A Call To L.I.F.E. made all the difference,” said Lynette. A Call To L.I.F.E. is a personalized weight-loss program focused on maintaining good results through healthy lifestyle habits. It includes 20 visits with qualified weight loss professionals. During each session, you will meet with a physician and a diet, exercise or psychology specialist. Together, they will design a program around your lifestyle, rather than a one-size-fits all program. The first 10 weekly sessions are the most intense. They include weigh-ins, labs and counseling. The next 10 bi-weekly sessions are designed to help you transition to greater personal accountability. In addition, Drs. Adrienne R. Gomez and Lori A. Hurst have significant experience and education to help patients throughout the program. “Now that I’ve gone through the A Call To L.I.F.E. program, I feel great both physically and mentally. I’m more confident. I do stuff like play tennis with my husband, mow the lawn with a push mower and go out with friends,” said Lynette. Many insurance companies cover full or partial costs of the A Call To L.I.F.E. program. Be sure to check with your employer or medical insurance company to see if A Call To L.I.F.E. is a qualified service.

COMMUNITY Plain Talk / A Tribute to White Christmases Commentary by Ward Degler Winter weather bugs me, but I love a white Christmas. I was born in the north woods of Wisconsin where Christmas is always white, so I guess I come by that naturally. On the other hand, Wisconsin winters are indecently cold, and that’s the part that bugs me. I pack on sweaters somewhere around Labor Day and huddle by the fireplace until the daffodils are in bloom. It wasn’t until we moved to southern Missouri that I saw kids play basketball and go roller skating on Christmas day rather than play hockey or go cross-country skiing. We’ve had white Christmases in Indiana, too, and this year was no exception. Admittedly, most of the heavy snow fell the day after Christmas, but that still left plenty of room for making snowmen and digging the trusty old sled out of the garage. When I was in grade school, the schoolyard had more kids in it during Christmas vacation than during school days. That was because the schoolyard was a long, gentle

Development

slope that was perfect for belly-flop sledding. Two Christmases stand out in my memory. In 1978, I was living on a farm in Minnesota and it had been snowing pretty much nonstop since Thanksgiving. The wind started howling the day before Christmas, and by morning the roads were blocked with drifted snow 10-feet deep. Nobody went anywhere until the county plowed us out three days later. The other memorable Christmas was 1965 when I was living just north of Pearl Harbor in Hawaii. The Christmas Eve temperature plummeted below 70 degrees for the first time in weeks and everyone piled into jackets to keep warm. I remember sitting out on our lanai looking at the beach and thinking that if I squinted hard enough the white sand looked just like snow. Ward Degler lives in Zionsville with his wife and dog.

Hampton Inn to open in Anson in Summer By Katie Franz • news@currentzionsville.com A new addition to Duke Realty’s Anson development will provide lodging to travelers off I-65. Construction had begun on a Hampton Inn hotel in the business district. The hotel set to open by August. “Having first-class overnight accommodations in Anson has always been part of our plan and an amenity that we believe is important in making this a community with a broad range of conveniences,” Charlie Patel Podell, senior vice president of Duke Realty’s Indiana operations, said. The hotel will provide 92 rooms, spawning over 56,000 square feet. Amenities will include an indoor swimming pool, complimentary hot breakfast, workout facilities and wireless internet. Developer Yagnash Patel has been involved with more than 60 similar projects worldwide and is looking forward to the convenience of the hotel’s location. “There is definitely a need for quality lodging along this corridor of I-65 given the ongoing growth of Whitestown and Zionsville and the increased traffic counts between Indianapolis and Chicago,” Patel said. “Now, area residents and businesses can find comfortable and affordable rooms nearby when they need guest lodging.” Hampton Inn is a Hilton-Worldwide brand hotel. “Hampton Inn is an excellent brand with a solid reputation and a welcome addition to the Anson community,” Podell said. The four-story hotel will be the first hotel in the 1,700-acre Anson district, located in southeast Boone County. It will add to the growing variety of services already available there, including businesses, housing options, places of worship and medical facilities.

View Point Setting record straight on Walmart COMMUNITY

Commentary by Leigh Ann Akard Akard True Value Hardware & Just Ask Rentals would like to set the record straight regarding false information that has either been stated or strongly implied by Walmart representatives during recent meetings. Akard True Value Hardware, or Leigh Ann Akard, has NOT had any discussions with Walmart about any sort of “partnership.” We did not “partner” with Walmart for the 9/11 Remembrance (Walmart gave a “sponsorship check” to help offset the event cost,) and they are not working in cooperation on product selection with our business. We have NOT partnered with Walmart in any way. We have NOT changed our position or feelings on the impact a Walmart could have to the community of Zionsville! Akard True Value Hardware & Just Ask Rentals has been proudly serving the community of Zionsville since 1955. This family business started on Main Street and moved to our larger location in the late 1970s to continue to be able to grow and serve the community. In 2011, we made a significant investment to remodel and re-merchandise our store so that we can continue to bring the best to Zionsville. The Akard family lives in Zionsville, many of our employees live in Zionsville, we graduated (along with some of our staff) from Zionsville

Schools, we have family and friends in the community and are privileged to be able to live and work in this wonderful community. Regardless of where you fall on the issue of whether Walmart should build in Zionsville, there is one thing that we should all be able to agree upon and that is that trying to “name drop” or create a false sense of “partnership” is a deceptive way to try to calm any negative emotions about the possible impact a Walmart could have on the community. Like the old saying, “If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is not true.” We hope that the residents of Zionsville take the time to become educated and informed about Walmart and attend the upcoming board of zoning appeals and plan commission meetings at town hall, Jan. 8 and Jan. 22 respectively. Also, it is always helpful for your elected representative to hear your thoughts. We all have a decision as to where we spend our money at the end of the day and hope that people realize that just because they may build it, doesn’t mean you have to shop it!

Business 2013 goal for Zionsville chamber: ‘Support business owners’ COMMUNITY

By Julie Osborne • julie@youarecurrent.com The agenda is jam packed this coming year for the Zionsville Chamber of Commerce, but Executive Director Julie Johns Cole has a focussed mission. “Our number one goal is to make sure our members succeed,” Cole said. “We want to be their No. 1 support system to give them the resources, tools, and information they need to thrive as a busiCole ness owner.” With experience in economic development, Cole is enthusiastic about leading the Chamber. “I have over 10 years of downtown redevelopment experience,” she said. “Downtown redevelopment is a passion of mine, and I’m excited to assist in this capacity.” Cole has many ideas to help retain and attract new businesses to Zionsville. One way is through improved communication with a new Web site being launched at the chamber’s annual banquet on Jan. 25. Another tool is a new enewsletter program for weekly communications as well as increased use of social media with a goal to get 1,000 likes by the end of 2013, according to Cole. Helping businesses promote themselves by hosting workshops throughout the year is also a priority with the first topic on email marketing slated for February. One exciting new initiative, according to Cole, is a dowtown committee with its goal to be, “One solid, cohesive voice for downtown. We want to market ourselves together efficiently, comprehensively, and we want to share our message and be able to back it up that Zionsville is open for business,” Cole explained. “Let’s pull our resources together. Let’s get everyone on the same page.” Popular events sponsored by the chamber will continue in the new year but the focus will shift to economic development, business retention, and bringing visibility to Zionsville. “In 2013, we are going to continue to make the transition from events planning and focus on becoming an economic development organiFirst Tuesday held on Jan. 8 – On Tuesday, January 8, Key Bank (1610 W.

Free for Chamber and ZMA members, $10 for non-members. 8 | January 1, 2013

New Chamber Initiatives:

• Dowtown Committee – formed • Membership directory to be delivered to more than 9,000 households in early 2013 • Zionsville Entrepreneurship Initiative • Business workshops – 2 to 3 workshops a year • Hosting Economic Outlook program with Boone County EDC • Holding issues forums • New member breakfast – twice a year • 2013 inagural golf outing – Golf Club of Indiana, June 13 zation that serves as the No. 1 resource for our business owners. We will continue to promote Zionsville through our diversified marketing campaign,” Cole said. “We will also continue to partner with other organizations to offer programs, like the 2012 gubernatorial debate that resulted in positive earned media for our community.” The chamber’s message, “Support Business Owners,” appears to be working, with a 17-percent increase in membership since Cole took the helm in June 2012 and excitement toward the future with new initiatives. “Looking forward, we’re really excited! We are doing as much as we can to reach out to our members in the business community, to let them know we are (business owners) advocates,” Cole said.

Town leaders share goals and planned developments for the new year By Julie Osborne - julie@youarecurrent.com

residential development with Ryland’s Blackstone development underway and other opportunities being discussed. “There were some residential development plans on the table before the economy turned and then they got shelved. Now they are getting dusted off and fine tuned,” Haak said. “Overall, we have 75 more building permits this year than last year, primarily residential.”

strong feelings on both sides.” There are also potential new projects in the works. “We’ve gone away from people kicking the tires to people getting ready to submit development plans, obtain financing,” Haak said.

“We don’t want to change Implementation - Fedex, Bub’s, Blackstone who we are, we want to be better at who we are.”

Another theme of the town leaders’ discussion revolved around being “better, smarter, and more efficient” with a focus on tax caps and infrastructure improvements. “With tax caps in place permanently now at a state level, we have to learn to work within those caps. We don’t want to spend down reserves,” Mitro said. “We’re in a healthy position, and we want the reserves for a rainy day. We are looking at the budget and making tough decisions. We need to generate more revenue, and projects like FedEx will help.” Infrastructure improvements are ongoing, with a road-impact study this year and sewer projects to help the land become more marketable, the Dow project being an example. “We will be providing water and sewer lines throughout the Dow property as part of economic development. This will assist in the marketability to make it a ‘shovel ready’ project,” Mitro said. This year also may bring the first roundabout to Zionsville to help solve the bottleneck at Ford and Bloor roads, as well as improvements to other high-traffic areas. However, budgeting and improving efficiencies remain the top priorities. “The overarching priority going forward is to really watch the ship. Tax caps have made a whole different world for all municipalities now. We have to find creative ways to work within the limits the state has given us,” Mitro said. Both leaders were optimistic and encouraged while looking ahead. “It will be a very positive economic year from the standpoint of the town moving forward and diversifying its tax base,” Mitro said. “We need to increase the commercial tax base but maintain the quality of life. We don’t want to change who we are, we want

Implementation, tax caps and infrastructure were themes echoed by Zionsville Town leaders when discussing their goals for the town in 2013. “One of the biggest things for 2013 is the implementation of several projects that had their genesis this year,” Town Manager, Ed Mitro said. “Then, there’s the budgetary aspect of the town in the new world with tax caps.” Mitro

With the Zionsville Economic Development Strategic Plan adopted on Sept. 4, 2012, by the Zionsville Town Council, 2013 is the time to put the plan into action. “FedEx and Bub’s are by-products of the strategic plan. We will see more of that (in 2013)”, Tim Haak, president of Zionsville Town Council, said. A 315,000 square foot FedEx Ground Distribution Center, in a business park Haak south of Bennett Parkway and 106th Street. It is set to break ground in spring and will include an extension of Bennett Parkway and associated infrastructure. The project is expected to be completed in the first quarter of 2014. “We are providing the construction of Bennett Parkway to serve not only Fedex but the business park,” Mitro said. “That is going to be a massive undertaking, not only from a town standpoint to get the infrastructure in but also guiding that project as it moves forward.” Additional building projects on Zionsville Road include Bub’s Burgers’ which is slated to be open by early to mid-summer, and a 16,000-square-foot office building across the street from Bub’s. With the economy turning around, there is renewed interest in www.currentzionsville.com

In the works - Dow, Walmart, new interests Other projects whose fate is still undetermined going into the new year include the Dow property and a proposed a new Walmart on Michigan Road. In November, 2012, Zionsville Community Schools and the Town of Zionsville partnered with a proposal to buy 126 acres ownded by Dow and located at 106th Street east of Zionsville Road. Final approvals still are needed by the school and town boards. “We are still in the works with what will happen with the Dow property. We are doing our due diligence now to see if it is not only economically feasible but will work for the town and benefit the entire community,” Mitro said. “It is still a work in progress and it will be on the front burner for next year.” Walmart discussions have been ongoing in the community. “Walmart is going to be what Walmart is going to be,” Mitro said. “It’s up to Walmart to see if they can meet all the standards in order to locate here.

A toast!

It is our position that 2012 will long be remembered as a significant year in the life of our community. We have seen the completion or advancement of dozens of actions, large and small, with impact unlikely to be fully realized until generations to come. US 31 construction began in earnest – after years of false-starts and empty promises, we are seeing signs that one of our most important arteries will lurch forward in a more efficient and safe way. Grand Park is rising and forming a new heart where only corn once grew. While still much is to be done, the Palladium has matured from start-up to institution. The full effect of the opening of 146th Street has blazed a route across the land bringing retail and family to Carmel, Noblesville, Fishers and Westfield – soon to Zionsville. And, Current has grown too. With a simple desire to make the communities we serve healthier, wealthier and wiser, this upstart hometown edition has managed to compete against giant corporations from far-away places. Maybe it is because while we don’t think it is perfect, we believe in our hometown. And, we are proud of the progress we’ve made. Cheers to a prosperous 2013!

Fiscal cliff: More blame on GOP

Extreme balance

Commentary by Terry Anker

Instinct naturally tells us that more is better. If we have one dollar, wouldn’t two be better? If we can help one person in need, shouldn’t we push the limit to extend to supporting two, or three, or more? Even as many of us are feeling the hangover brought on by holiday spending, eating and revelry, we can’t shake the instinct that there is never too much. We transition from newscasters telling us how to prepare boundless, calorie-laden repast to those same folks admonishing us to get in shape and “lose those holiday pounds.” The sale of extreme workout DVD’s will skyrocket in the coming weeks. Certainly, we live a life of conflicting priorities. It is wonderful, even necessary, to gather with family and enjoy abundance by the hearth. And, it is wonderful, even necessary, to maintain an ideal weight to preserve and strengthen our bodies. But how do we find the balance between the two? Is moderation lost in a world of competitive priorities? Imagine this example. The cost of college edu-

cation, especially if on-going or extended, often drives graduates out of the market place rather than into it. Because universities have not kept costs in line with inflation, are kids “overbuilding” their skills for the market? If the market demand for traditional degrees is far exceeded by the quantity of new grads, is the effect a reduction in value (even as tuition and debt to the student and her family is ballooning)?  Certainly education is critically important, like housing, food and family. But isn’t creating a standard of university degree production that attempts to build an absolute egalitarian distribution where everyone pursues the same kind of training simply trapping kids, their families and our government into a thoughtless and costly spiral? If something is good, doesn’t it deserve to be unconstrained? Terry Anker is an associate editor of Current Publishing, LLC. You may e-mail him at terry@ currentincarmel.com.

By the time you read this, we all could be careening off the fiscal cliff, which would be a shame. The inability of President Barack Obama and U.S. Rep. John Boehner (R-Ohio), the speaker of the House of Representatives, to get together on a smart resolution (unless it happened after we went off to an early press run as a result of the holiday) is pathetic. While there had been some give and take from both sides, we view the Republican Party as the more dominant culprit here. A majority in the House guarantees absolutely nothing for the GOP and its Tea Party members. We view their actions as divisive and obstructionist. Our take: This hasn’t been about true negotiating – which should have been the case all along – but more about digging in heels and casting blame. It’s really quite sad that the two sides couldn’t come up with a solution that makes sense. In the end, the real and appropriate blame falls squarely on the shoulders of the American voters, for they are the ones who put these intractable, so-called leaders in the position to drive all of us over the edge. When will the voting public learn? ••• As your tax dollars are at stake every time a buying decision is made by the many boards and councils that help to govern our municipalities, how often do you wince at choices that are made? Are your thoughts heard? We believe they should be, and so we urge you to gain knowledge of those panels and the people that serve on them. Hold feet to the fire where necessary and make sure every expense is an indispensible outlay.

Avoiding the flu

Commentary by Danielle Wilson The flu has hit our house, and hit it hard. I left for work this morning with victims Two and Three moaning on the couch running temperatures of 102 and 103, feebly sipping juice boxes for comfort. Patient Zero has made a full recovery, but I'm certain our remaining daughter will succumb shortly, followed, inevitably, by my Husband, Doo. Will I get it too? After all, this is the first year in more than 10 that I did not get vaccinated. The only thing keeping the worry at bay is knowing that Doo has to deal with it all, not I! Is that bad? Is it wrong that I took a tiny bit of joy literally washing my hands clean of the whole germy affair? Are the fates ready to punish me with the flu-to-end-all-flus because I'd rather spend time at the office? Perhaps, but I like control. I need control. At work, everything is neat and orderly, and I'm only in charge of myself. This is so not the case at our house, especially when said house has become an infirmary. Any mom can attest to this fact: Staying at home with healthy kids is tough, but throw in worrisome coughing, running noses, and multiple wake-up calls throughout the night, and the days become downright torturous. Now that Doo works from home, he's the one who

must deal with the hell of flu season, though he has a much better sense of humor about it than I ever did. His latest email reads <Captain's Log: 2012> The infected are everywhere! I have attempted to barricade myself in my living quarters but my need for sustenance continually drives me to the commissary where I am forced to engage the zombie hordes. Eyes red and puffy, pale chalky skin, and a blank stare that haunts my dreams. A subtle but continuous moan escaping their lips ‘daaaaaadddd…. DAAADDDD.’ There is nowhere left to run … no one left to call … and they just keep coming! So yes, while I felt sorry for my sick kiddos this morning, I was elated that I didn't have to stay and care for them. While I do experience a twinge of guilt when my youngest cries out, delirious with fever, "You weren't here to hug me!", I can honestly say I'm a better mom now that I'm able to part with some of my motherhood duties. I'll gladly suffer the flu for that opportunity. Peace out.

Peppermint pig resolutions Commentary by Julie Osborne

It’s the new year, so what else am I going to talk about than that dreaded word - “resolutions.” But, this time it’s resolutions with a twist, or shall I say “pig.” I’m not sure when or how this tradition even got started, but one year my inner creative mom came bursting out and I stumbled upon a pig, a solid peppermint pig to be exact. It came in a rectangular red box with gold lettering. Inside was a red velvet bag encasing the pig. Enclosed with the pig was a small silver mallet, hard enough to smash the pig into a million pieces, which consequently ended up all over my kitchen floor with tiny remnants that invited swarms of ants by mid-summer (trust me). Anyway, somehow at some point in the very far away past that I can’t remember now, I decided the peppermint pig would help our family set some serious resolutions, ones that we would actually remember after Jan. 15 and also incorporate into our daily lives, even for my then 8-year old. So, the tradition began and on New Year’s Day we would sit around the kitchen table and pass the pig and mallet. Before each family member took a whack at it, he/she would have

to proclaim a resolution and it would have to be written down, most likely on a used napkin, to ensure it would be remembered. Then, the smashing, missing, giggling, and peppermint pieces would start flying. It is a memorable time each year with some of my favorites goals articulated by my son years ago when he was in eighth grade. They went something like, “Get an A in Shakespeare,” with his next time around “Improve my beatboxing and voice imitations.” When I challenged him to be more specific (remember Peter Drucker’s S.M.A.R.T. principles?), he responded, “OK, Mom, I’m going to practice my voices and beatboxing 30 minutes a day!” May your new Yyar be filled with much laughter, joy, and maybe a few resolutions. I am actually a big believer in setting goals but also enjoy the many unexpected encounters and experiences each new day and new year bring. Enjoy the journey in 2013. And, may the pig be with you.

Season opens with killer comedy By Patricia Rettig • news@currentinwestfield.com

Beef & Boards Dinner Theatre opens its 2013 season with the famous killer comedy, “Arsenic & OldLace.” The classic comedy kicks off the theatre’s year-long 40th Anniversary celebration, and is on stage now through Feb. 3. Brewster sisters Martha andAbby are charming and innocent ladies who have taken it upon themselves to help lonely men. With a little arsenic, strychnine and just a pinch of cyanide in a glass of homemade elderberry wine, their guests are unburdened of their unhappy lives. Quietly the bodies of these socially and religiously “acceptable” roomers begin to populate their cellar, with the unwitting assistance of their loony brother Teddy, who thinks he is Theodore Roosevelt digging locks for the Panama Canal. Their charity continues smoothly until being discovered by their nephew, Mortimer. A theatre critic who is preparing to marry, Mortimer is shocked to learn the truth – and he only becomes more frantic when his maniacal uncle Jonathan makes a surprise visit! Made popular by the 1941 Frank Capra film starring Cary Grant, “Arsenic & OldLace” proves things are not always what they seem. David Schmittou, last seen at Beef & Boards as Cornelius Hackl in “Hello, Dolly!,” returns in the role of Mortimer. Karen Pappas, popular with Beef & Boards audiences from her portrayal of the hilarious Mavis in the Church Basement Ladies series, plays Abby Brewster, while newcomer Gerri Weagraff plays her sister, Martha. Several more Beef & Boards favorites round out the cast with Douglas E. Stark in the role of loony Teddy Brewster, Jeff Stockberger as the sinister Jonathan Brewster andEddie Curry as Jonathan’s sidekick, Dr. Einstein. Another newcomer, Lisa Ermel plays the role of Mortimer’s fiancée, Elaine Harper. There are 37 performances of “Arsenic & OldLace” scheduled in the intimate setting provided by Beef & Boards. Tickets range from $37.50 to $62.50 and include Chef Odell Ward’s dinner buffet, fruit and salad bar, and select drinks. Discounts are available for children and groups of 20 or more. Parking is free. For reservations, call the box office at 872-

‘Looper’ • R, 119 minutes Commentary by Chris Lloyd Ambitious but not entirely successful, “Looper” is much more than your standard science fiction action flick. Writer/director Rian Johnson (“Brick”) has crafted a film that’s less concerned with the mechanics of time travel than with the ramifications it has on its characters. It also has one of the boldest casting movies of the year, with Bruce Willis and Joseph Gordon-Levitt playing the same man separated by 30 years in age. Joe is an assassin, or “looper,” living in Kansas City circa 2044. The loopers kill victims sent back in time by a crime syndicate that runs everything in the future. Their careers are prosperous but brief – retirement comes when the victim who shows up to be assassinated is actually

themselves, three decades into the future. Unfortunately for young Joe, old Joe has apparently been preparing carefully for this day and manages to escape. This sets off a nasty temporal snafu, as well as pitting the two of them against each other and the entire looper operation. “Looper” is bursting with originality, but the movie seems to spin sidewise from itself and lose focus. Eventually it all gets tied up in a satisfying way, even if the journey there isn’t always a smooth one.

Real Estate Planning to succeed this year DOUGH

Commentary by David Cain

Let’s say you want to build a new house. What’s your first step? Dig a hole? Before you send out a backhoe and start digging a hole, the first step is creating a plan or blueprint. Developing a plan defines what you want to build. If you didn’t set out a plan, how do you think the finished house would look? Like a shack or worse yet, something you couldn’t afford to finish? Regardless, it’s unlikely it would fulfill your needs or your vision. Like a poorly planned house, many organizations have good intentions but no plan and, worse yet, no planning. The result is a bunch of projects that don’t necessarily work together. They are fragmented. It’s the equivalent of people in a company that collectively do their jobs but don’t have a firm grasp of the direction of the company. They might do great work, but they are less effective than if they understood the vision and goals more fully. Solos in businesses and families cripple effectiveness. If you are looking to gain some speed in 2013, take a look at your planning process. While developing a plan might not be at the top of your priority list, there is real value in the planning process; the process of talking through what makes sense and how it will be accomplished, assigning that responsibility to people and revisiting and refining it throughout the year. In the words of Dwight Eisenhower, “Plans are nothing. Planning is everything.”

You can’t afford not to have renter’s insurance Commentary by Jamie Ianigro Question from Christina A. from Carmel: I just graduated in December and am fortunate to have found a job that is going to allow me to move out of my family home. Is renter’s insurance something that I really need? Response from Jamie Ianigro: Congratulations on the new job! Now it’s time to protect that paycheck with a renter’s insurance policy. People like to make many excuses about why they neglect to purchase a renter’s insurance policy. “I cant’ afford it.” “I don’t have enough stuff to insure.” “Nothing is going to happen to my stuff.” The liability protection alone is really enough reason to buy, but let’s break it down. The first thing you need to know about renter’s insurance is that it’s pretty affordable. A typical policy can cost less than $200 per year. That’s less than $4 per week. It’s worth the sacrifice. You are also in for a nice bonus if you already have car insurance. Many insurance carriers will give you a multi-policy discount if you package your auto and renter’s policy together with the same company. The second thing you need to know is that your stuff is much more valuable than you realize. How much would it cost you to start over if you had a total loss? Apartments burn down and get robbed just like houses. Starting over after a loss like that is much easier when your independent insurance agent drops off a check to replace all of your things. The last thing you need to know is probably the most important. A renter’s policy protects your financial assets by providing liability coverage. Liability insurance covers you for injury you cause to others and for damage to property that belongs to others. There are many ways to trigger a liability claim, so I’ve got some examples for you. Claim scenario A: You decide to play in a recreational softball league. While batting, you hit a pitch back at the pitcher, hit him, and hospitalize him. The pitcher sues you, and your renter’s policy steps in to defend you and settle the suit. Claim scenario B: You have some friends over for dinner. Your floor is wet and one of the friends slips and falls and requires medical treatment. Your renter’s policy steps in to pay for the treatment. The risk of going without this simple insurance coverage is not worth the couple of dollars a week that you save by not having it. Jamie Ianigro is with Shepherd Insurance & Finanacial Services.

Lilly letdown – The SEC says that Eli Lilly will cough up $29 million to “settle charges that four of its international subsidiaries paid bribes to win business,” according to CNNMoney. The transgressions allegedly took place over multiple years in Russia, Brazil, Poland and China. – www. money.cnn.com

Big pay – The highest paid female musician last year wasn’t Rihanna. Or Taylor Swift. It was noneother than veteran performer Britney Spears. – www.forbes. com

Play well with others – If you think you can sit in the cubicle all day and only concern yourself with your own work, think again. According to research from CEB, a “member-based advisory company,” more than 80 percent of people in today’s workplace work with 10 other employees on a daily basis. – www.forbes.com

Billion-dollar industry – Leaders are needed in the work place. American businesses cough up $170 billion on “leadership-based curriculum” according to the American Society of Training and Development. That must be a lot of motivational speakers. – www.forbes.com

CENTURY 21 RASMUSSEN

Showing your home in its best light Commentary by David Decker Functional, beautiful lighting can’t be created from a single light source. To achieve optimum lighting for your home, consider using layers of light in each room. To help you visualize this, try thinking of each light source as a layer in a cake. Each layer brings a different flavor to the cake, but they come together to make a single delicious dessert. Layering lighting works in the same way, by blending together multiple light sources to create a rich and ambient atmosphere. The bottom layer of the lighting cake is called the “overall” layer or “ambient” layer. This is the foundation of the room’s lighting design. Chandeliers, ceiling fixtures and wall sconces fall into this category, and are intended to create soft illumination for everyday use. The ambient layer will determine the general brightness of the room. Choose to lower the lights in bedrooms and dining rooms to generate a romantic atmosphere. Or use brighter ones in the kitchen to make the room feel vibrant and energetic. The next layer of lighting is the “task” lighting. This bright layer illuminates specific areas or surfaces to help with activities like cooking or reading. Because task lighting is more direct, using more of these lights instead of ambient lighting can help you save on energy bills. Accent lighting refers to the top layer of your lighting system. This lighting helps enhance the 20 | January 1, 2013

room and create visual interest. You can use accent lighting to illuminate art or architectural elements. Accent lights are usually adjustable so they can be used to produce a variety of styles for the room. Put the icing on the cake by implementing decorative lights. This layer doesn’t necessarily add functional light to the room; it’s mainly there to complete the look of the room. Make sure these lights are on the dim side so they don’t overpower the rest of your décor. Light layering techniques are especially relevant now around the holidays. String lights and candles are the perfect third or fourth layer for your home lighting scheme. Dim the ambient lights to make your Christmas tree and decorations really shine. A fireplace can also act as a cozy lighting source. Have fun decorating and happy holidays to you all! 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.theaffordablecompanies.com). E-mail home improvement questions to david.decker@theaffordablecompanies.com.
