Downtown Committee launched

By Julie Osborne •

The Zionsville Chamber of Commerce Board of Director’s proposed it in December, an open call-out meeting to all downtown merchants was held in mid-January, and now the Downtown Committee has been launched. As an official committee of the Chamber of Commerce with diverse representation from fashion, art, photography, food and beverage and communications, its mission statement reads, “maximizing merchant exposure while enhancing visitor experience through effective cooperation and communication.” “For some time now, discussions have been held in regards to the chamber’s role in downtown, so the idea of forming a committee specifically designed to focus on downtown is nothing new,” Julie Cole, executive director of the chamber, said. “Late last year, a group of merchants initiated a joint effort to market all of the great merchandise, services, and restaurants that downtown has to offer. We (chamber) thought it made sense to build upon that effort and to establish one core committee that would represent downtown.” Barbara Jennings, Downtown Committee chair and managing partner of Corner Vise Gallery and Frame Shop since1986, was excited after the first committee meeting on Jan. 29. “Downtown Zionsville is a treasure. It is how Zionsville is defined. So, when things are not well in downtown, it impacts the whole town,” Jennings said. “Everyone wants the best for Zionsville, but it’s fractured. We need to bring groups together and be on the same page.”

Jennings Bringing the merchants together is what the downtown committee is all about, with one concrete goal being unified hours of operation for downtown shops and restaurants. Currently, hours vary and only a handful are open on Sundays. The group is gathering information from merchants, via a survey, in hopes of bringing consistent hours. “We want to have recommended downtown hours, possibly being open as a town late on Thursdays and being open on Sundays from noon to four,” Jennings said. Another goal is clear communication with merchants to keep them informed on street closures, promotions, events and anything related to the downtown area. At times, street closures occur without merchant’s knowledge and it can impact downtown businesses since access to Main Street becomes limited. The group hopes to have a voice in these street closing requests or at least be able to give

Bush Honeysuckle Invasive removal to begin on Zionsville Rail Trail - The Zionsville Dept. of Parks and Recreation will begin removal of invasive Bush Honeysuckle on the Zionsville Rail Trail beginning Thursday. Removal of the plant will occur on an approximately 10-acre corridor by the application of a basal bark herbicide directly on the plants to be removed. Eradication of these invasive, non-native plants will help create a healthy, more diverse wildlife corridor.

merchants notice before they occur. Working with the Town to repair sidewalks is also a priority. “Our hope is that anything that happens in downtown Zionsville goes through us. We want to be involved in all downtown events, no matter who is hosting or promoting the event,” Jennings said. “If we, as merchants, can work with the promoters, it’s a ‘win-win-win’ - a win for event promoters, merchants and visitors.” Additional goals are a shopping guide, new promotions/events, merchant web page on the Chamber website, and welcome packets along with visits to new merchants. Having liasons with other groups, such as ZMA and the Cultural District Board as well as organizations such as the Lions Club and Sullivan Munce, is also key to improving communication with downtown events. “The Chamber, like many organizations in this community, promotes Zionsville in their own unique way. We have, and will continue to work with and support organizations that promote Zionsville and provide a benefit to our community,” Cole said.

Plain Talk

The Yale bag endures Commentary by Ward Degler Back in the dark ages of my youth, a guy carried his stuff in a briefcase - masculine and dignified. As a matter of fact, the ultimate gift for a male college graduate was a leather briefcase. Of course, graduates back then also wore wingtip shoes, pinstripe suits and fedoras. And girls referred to them as, “swell.” Today, of course, it’s pretty much hoodies, jeans and tennies. And a quick look at any college campus nowadays will disclose the only guy wearing a suit is the dean emeritus of the law school. He’s also the only guy carrying a briefcase. The whole scene probably shifted in the late 1950s when I got back to college after a stint in the army. I trotted on campus assuming everything was the same as when I left it two years earlier. Back then, you could tell a faculty member by his suit and tie every time. No exceptions. Board of Parks & Recreation meeting - On Feb. 13, at 7 p.m., the Parks and Recreation Board will have its monthly meeting at Town Hall in the Bev Harves Room.

Then I showed up for German class. Our instructor, it turns out, was a long-haired academic from Yale. He wore baggy tweeds, a stocking cap, if you can believe it, and carried his stuff in a canvas satchel he called “a Yale bag.” Every student in the class sat speechless as he swept into the classroom, pulled off his stocking cap and opened his Yale bag. It contained two spiral notebooks, three textbooks, a folded newspaper, a container of pens and pencils, a thermos of coffee, and his lunch which turned out to be an egg salad sandwich and a sliced tomato. A lot to cram into a single bag. We thought he was nuts. But he was a good teacher, and we learned a lot from him. By the end of the semester, three of the guys in the class were carrying Yale bags. I was one of them.

Remembering Logan Commentary by Julia Plant Logan James McGovern, a Zionsville Community High School freshman, died Jan. 23 from rhabdomyosarcoma, an unusual kind of cancer that affects muscles that are attached to bones. Logan was born on Oct. 4,1997, and was raised by his mother, Eileen McGovern. Logan loved nothing more than to hang out with his countless number of friends in his free time and just have fun. He was an athlete who loved playing football and other various sports from a young age and was a huge fan of the Texas Longhorns. Logan also enjoyed racing motorcycles and playing video games in his free time. “Logan was a really funny person and always had a smile on his face,” friend Bailee Dodson said. Many students and friends visited Logan before his passing and were amazed at how emotionally strong he was. Logan always stayed faithful and knew God had a plan for him. “He was always happy, he never let his pain or cancer stop him from doing anything,” explained Dylon Chase, a close friend of Logan. At the announcement of his passing, Zionsville students were in complete shock. Logan was truly loved by so many at ZCHS, and this was clearly displayed on Jan. 23 through the sobbing, the expressions of anger, and the indescribable silence in the hallways and lunchrooms succeeding the emotional release of information

over the intercom. “When the going got tough, he would push through it. He was an inspiration,” classmate, Morgan Roe said. Logan James McGovern’s strength influenced not only the ZCHS Class of 2016, but all of Zionsville Community Schools. Logan’s perseverance will continue to inspire those who knew and loved him and he will stay in all of the Zionsville community’s hearts forever. Elyssa Charles sums up her close friend, “Logan was a one of a kind friend. He made an impact on every single person he knew. This isn’t a ‘goodbye,’ it’s a ‘see you later.’”

Cover Story

Designers and merchants hope to make Main Street a fashion destination By Julie Osborne • Arts and antiques. That’s what Zionsville is known for. Now, a small group of merchants and designers hope to be known for another thing – fashion. Antonio Fermin, designer of bridal and special occasion gowns and co-owner of A Step Above Bridal, is internationally known with his bridal line in 13 countries. Fermin has appeared on national television with well-known celebrities and won many national awards, such as the bridFermin als industry’s Award of Excellence. His path to Main Street was an unlikely one, starting out as an oncologist living in Spain. Twenty years ago, Fermin left medicine and began designing wedding gowns with no formal training. He later came to Indiana for a bridal trunk show and opened his shop in the Potpourri building in 2004. He hopes Zionsville will one day be known as a fashion district but sees challenges ahead. “We need to bring in more boutiques and raise awareness of what we have,” Fermin said. “People tell us we are the ‘best kept secret’ but that can be a two-edged sword. We don’t want to be a secret!” Increasing advertising outside of town, cooperation and cross promoting with other businesses and having more shoppingfocussed events downtown are some ideas to raise awareness.

Making it happen

Raising awareness to help Zionsville become recognized as a fashion district seems reachable when talking with passionate Nikki Blaine, owner of Nikki Blaine Couture. Starting out as an accountant for seven years at Quaker Oats and later obtaining a masters degree in entrepreneurship, Blaine has no formal fashion training. She is self taught and currently teaches designers at Harrison College in Indianapolis. “I have developed my own process. It’s organBlaine ic, unorthodox,” Blaine said while explaining her creative process which involves original designs and “repurposing” clothing. Her unique approach and styles have won her national acclaim working on red carpet events. Blaine not only has energy and passion, but tangible ideas on how to put Zionsville on the map in the fashion world. “Everybody loves Zionsville, but we need to create excitement,” Blaine said. “We need more street walks for merchants, something for shopping once a month that builds momentum that people want to be a part of.” Blaine is putting her ideas into action this week by spearheading a new event downtown called the Zionsville Charming Details Shopping Experience on Thursday from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Bringing more shoppers is one important element, another is networking with designers to bring a higher concentration of them to Zionsville through co-ops, similar to the art co-ops on Main Street where artists share the space and rotate shifts manning the shop. “What Zionsville needs to be is a fashion destination. There needs to be a co-op opportunity for designers to afford the rent. I would love to convert (my shop) into a co-op,” Blaine said. “We need to build hype so (designers) can see the rewards and then they will jump on board.” 10 | February 5, 2013

Finding a niche

Building excitement can help bring shoppers to town, but unique products and customer service will make them return. “My first boss drilled into my head that customer service is No. 1 before merchandise and advertising,” said Steve Schwartz, owner of Ballerinas and Bruisers. “It’s about building relationships.” In the fashion industry since age 19, Schwartz Schwartz began his career at Neiman Marcus in Beverly Hills as a wardrobe selector for television shows like “Dallas,” “Dynasty” and “Knots Landing.” In 2007, he opened his specialty shop for children’s clothing and finds his niche in one-of-a-kind merchandise. “The name of the game is to find things that are unique, unusual, and not in other stores,” Schwartz said. “My main goal is to find manufacturers who are local, handmade and promote small business.”

Looking ahead - fashion runway?

Carole Toole knows the importance of finding a niche in the fashion industry where designers abound. As a former teacher and new shop owner of Electric Image in Zionsville since November, she also is a newcomer as a fashion designer, launching her own line in 2011. “I want to build a runway in my parking lot so we can have fashion shows in the spring and Toole summer,” Toole said. “For Zionsville to become a Current in Zionsville

fashion mecca, we (designers and merchants) need to have creative thinking and cooperation. And, it will take a lot of promoting.” Creating new events around fashion in Zionsville is a common theme with those wanting to expand Zionsville’s fashion identity. Last sumHunt mer, former advertising executive Lesley Hunt of Lesley Jane Boutique got the ball rolling with Schwartz, after a discussion with Blaine, to plan Zionsville’s first Fashion Night Out, an international event with satellite locations throughout Indiana. This year, she hopes to repeat and expand the event. “We want to be one of the locations in Indiana. This year, we are starting now so Zionsville can be a destination,” Hunt said. Time will tell if the passion of this former oncologist, accountant, teacher, television wardrobe consultant, and business woman will build Zionsville into a fashion mecca.

ZEF InStyle Fashion Show and Luncheon Friday, March 1 • 11 a.m. - 2 p.m. Boone Meadow School Zionsville retailers participating are: Ballerinas and Bruisers, Lesley Jane, Lilly’s Boutique Gallery, Nikki Blaine Couture, Akard True Value, Wildcat Creek Outfitters and B.Wright Ltd.

Opinion ‘Synth drugs’ need to be made illegal

Prairie praise It is our position that Conner Prairie Interactive History Park should be commended for maintaining a balanced budget for the seventh consecutive year. Most interestingly, Conner Prairie balanced its budget without taxpayer support. About 323,000 people attended Conner Prairie last year through visiting such events as Headless Horseman, 1859 Balloon Voyage, summer day camps, school programs, Symphony on the Prairie, Follow the North Star and Hearthside Suppers. Nearly 9 percent of these visitors – 22,000 people – came through a free or greatly reduced admission. In September, Conner Prairie was awarded a $2.3-million grant from the National Science Foundation to create and distribute a model for integrating informal science experiences into exhibits and programs at historic sites and museums across the country. This project is underway, and portions will be unveiled this year. To quote President and CEO Ellen M. Rosenthal, “The Conner Prairie of today proves that a museum can engage adults and children at the same time. It is a place that creatively offers a wide range of imaginative techniques to inspire learning about history. And it is still a place of great beauty, with a landscape that moves us with reverence and awe.” Well said, and well done.

Table talk Commentary by Terry Anker We routinely share family meals. As an important component of this communion, each of us is expected to distill the events of the day into an update for those gathered. With both of our children, there was a noted progression as they came to understand the mechanics of how to communicate and why it is so very important in human relationships. As Carolyn and I would share the day’s travails, we would routinely turn to the growing boys seated with us and look to them to contribute their own comments to the conversation. Amusingly, they failed to fully comprehend that we were speaking of events that had actually occurred during the day and that we were not making up bed-time stories. Our eldest would tell wild stories replete with sound effects and animated countenance of his adventures with dragons. When the younger son grew to the same age, he made use of a similar storytelling technique, but his tales were based in near-fact.

He imagined things that might have, but didn’t, happen which led to all sorts of fun – and some household confusion. With the passage of time, they came to understand that the goal was to share actual information and not to entertain with a yarn; and while we have missed the news of pterodactyl attacks, we have settled into a solid pattern of give-and-take. “How was your day?” is more than a polite exchange. We are each, to the best of our ability, responsible for communicating. As the kids grew old enough to invite friends to join us for a family meal, their unsuspecting compadres were, in their turn, expected to share their own news. Some initially struggled. Eventually, all came to appreciate the attention – and interest – of the adults at the table. Terry Anker is an associate editor of Current Publishing, LLC. You may e-mail him at terry@

Current in Zionsville

Officers of the law, as well as lawmakers, last week got a boost in their efforts to quell the continued uprising of sales and use of synthetic drugs. A proposal by State Sen. Jim Merritt (RIndianapolis) to give police officers and prosecutors new tools to crack down on dangerous dope passed the Senate Committee on Corrections and Criminal Law by a 6-3 vote. According to the bill, synthetic drugs include a substance a reasonable person would believe is a synthetic drug; a substance a reasonable person would believe is being sold or purchased as a synthetic drug; and/or a substance that a person knows or should have known is intended to be consumed and that consumption is intended to cause intoxication. Merritt, the author of the previously enacted state Lifeline Law, now has put forth an idea that also would modify the existing definition of “intoxication” under Indiana Code to include impairment by any substance, excluding food and food ingredients, tobacco or a dietary supplement. Indiana’s current definition for intoxication only includes impairment by certain substances, such as alcohol and controlled drugs. We support his bulldogged approach. The senator said he believes the new definitions would give cops and prosecutors the tools necessary to arraign synthetic drug manufacturers and dealers who are slightly changing the chemical makeup of individual substances.

“To feel the pain of a love lost is a sign that we have indeed loved.”

I’ve reached a decision, people, and no, it has nothing to do with plastic surgery. I will, from this point on, unto death do us part, pretend to love our dog, Libby. Because in reality, unless I want to get creative with a shovel and some lime, she’s here to stay (I’m kidding of course! I would never use lime). And if I don’t make peace with that, I’m going to endure a miserable 11 to 13 years. Here’s my line of thinking: She’s family. Whether I like it or not (and I really don’t), my children and my husband love her. And since I love them, the transitive property of canine ownership says I must in turn love the dog. Therefore, I shall accept my role as one of the primary caregivers and start pulling my weight when it comes to feeding, walking, and yes, even playing with Libby. To that end, I have begun taking her out for trips around the neighborhood. I get some exercise, she gets some “Danielle” time, and my kids think I’m awesome because they didn’t have to go outside in freezing temperatures. Fortunately for you, my avid fans, loving the dog doesn’t mean I can’t continue to complain about her. You only have to read my previous 300 columns to see that the people I love most provide the best venting fodder.

So don’t worry, you can expect many more sordid tales of Labrador retrievers gone awry. Hopefully what you won’t be hearing are stories about how I blame Doo for carpet stains, midnight awakenings and weaponized dog hair clogging the air vents. He was a pretty good husband in the early years with kids, putting in his fair share of diaper changes, Spagettios clean-ups, and pacifier retrievals; I can do the same for him now that he has the baby. So I’m adding to my New Year’s resolutions list “Pretend to love Libby until I actually do.” And I will eventually. I’m not so cold that I can’t look into those big brown eyes and feel nothing; it’s just that I’ve resisted because once I admit that I like her, I’m all in. I’ll have to cry when she’s hurt and mourn when she eventually leaves us. I bawled like a baby when my son’s gecko of four years died. A gecko! Imagine how I’ll be when my children’s eighty-pound dog passes! Look, I’m not promising to become a dog person, but I am promising to try loving Libby. Peace out.

On a serious note Commentary by Dick Wolfsie

This week, I’m taking a break from my usual rantings, sometimes generously referred to as a humor column. Instead, here’s a little reflection on why one week in January gave me a lot to think about. It began on a Friday at the Indiana State Museum where I gazed in awe at originals of both the Emancipation Proclamation and the 13th Amendment. Having just seen the movie Lincoln, the experience was even more meaningful. People around me were chatting about how old the documents were, but I didn’t have that sense. When I was about 6, one of my elementary school teachers invited an elderly man to speak to our class. He must have been close to 100-years-old because he told us that as a child, he heard President Abraham Lincoln speak in 1862. This story is not only evidence of how old I am, but also how young this country is. And the rest of my weekend was more proof of this. The night after my visit to the museum, my wife and I attended a performance at the IRT of “Jackie and Me.” In the play, a young boy goes back in time to 1947 (the year I was born) when Jackie Robinson became the first AfricanAmerican to play in Major League Baseball. Robinson was Rookie of the Year and won a Most Valuable Player award, but he couldn’t stay

in a hotel or eat at a restaurant with his fellow Dodgers because of his color. That was in my lifetime – maybe yours, as well. Lincoln might have expected a more tolerant America by the year 1947. After the play, a panel of baseball historians detailed more specifics of the bias that Robinson faced. Dodger great Carl Erskine, an Indiana resident and a close friend of the late Robinson, informed the audience of another life-changing event in his own life. At the end of Erskine’s professional baseball career, his wife, Betty, gave birth to Jimmy, who was born with Down Syndrome. In the ‘60s there was little understanding of the disorder – and no support or compassion for the child or his family. In Erskine’s new book, “The Parallel,” he writes that he is thankful for a major shift in attitudes toward youngsters like Jimmy. He compares Robinson’s plight with that of his son’s: “Jackie and Jimmy … have travelled a parallel journey far more alike than different … they were both striving for what was right. In the end what is right will always prevail.”

Weird old ladies

Commentary by Mike Redmond

My dog, Cookie, is 13-years-old, which moves her into the stage of life we call Senior Dogitude. Well, maybe that’s not the precise veterinary term. But it’s closer than the other phrase I am using for her current status: Weird Old Lady. She’s forgetful. Often she’ll stand at the back door, asking to go out and, upon getting her wish, do one of two things: Turn around and go back to her bed, or go out onto the back porch and stand there looking around until you remind her to do some business. Then she gets this, “Oh, yeah, now I remember,” look on her face, completes the mission and then finds a million things to distract her on the way back to the house. She’s possessive. Her water dish is her favorite thing in the world and she is not at all happy that the two cats, Charlie and Maynard, have decided Cookie’s water is the best in the house. Cookie has also decided that she loves catnip toys. It’s not uncommon to see her walking through the house with a catnip mouse hanging from her teeth. Weird. Or perhaps she’s just getting even over the water dish thing. She’s argumentative. If she comes up to you demanding the last bite of your pizza crust, and you tell her no, be ready to defend your position against a barrage of whines, growls, barks, grumbles, squeaks and mutters, not to mention the

clack jaw action I like to call Dog Castanets. She’s gassy. Whoever coined the phrase “ripe old age” must have had a dog, because ripe is exactly the right word. No matter what she eats, whether the typical canine garbage diet or the super-premium Golden Age Formula dog food, it turns instantly to methane – lots and lots of it, too, and of the stinkiest variety. Remember a few days back when the temperature was down around 0 Fahrenheit? Cookie was in my office, sound asleep, floating dog biscuits. I had to open the windows. So, let’s add it up: Forgetful, possessive, argumentative, gassy. Good heavens. Cookie is behaving exactly like my mother. Well, maybe not exactly. As far as I know, Mom is not inclined to drink from the toilet when her water dish is empty, and neither is she known to snack on cat food. Other than that, though, the similarities are remarkable, except Cookie spends her days sleeping, while Mom watches basketball. They both, however, are fond of barking at passers-by.

Second City’s ‘Laughing Matters’ comes to Zionsville By Katie Franz •

If you are looking for a good laugh this weekend, head over to The Second City performance, “Laughing Matters.” Zionsville Band and Orchestra Patrons, also known as ZBOP, partnering with Fanimation ceiling fans and Current Publishing, have organized the group’s return this Friday at 7:30 p.m. at the Zionsville High School Performing Arts Center, 1000 Mulberry St. This will be the third year The Second City group has performed in Zionsville. The company’s website says the group aims to provide an escape from the “economic uncertainty, political gridlock, and dearth of Kardashians clogging up our televisions” through “much needed silliness and hilarious spontaneity.” The show will include both improvisational and scripted elements, and keeps the audience involved throughout. “There’s two to three improv games that we do throughout the show,” cast member, Eddie Mujica said. “The rest is scripted scenes but with moments that are improvised. We end every show with an improvised third act. That’s my favorite part of the night.” The Second City opened its doors in 1959 on the north side of Chicago and has since grown in reputation and location. The company has developed from a single stage to a multi-faceted enterprise of training centers, traveling troupes and resident performance groups in Chicago, Los Angeles and Toronto. 14 | February 5, 2013

The company has cultivated a number of comedic stars, including Tina Fey, Steve Carell, Stephen Colbert and Bill Murray, and boasts the largest training centers for improvisation and acting in the nation. Although The Second City has visited Zionsville twice before, ZBOP Chair Ann Pagano assures that the audience will be fully entertained. “Every year, it is a different show. New skits and, of course, improv is improv,” Pagano said. “We are hosting Second City for the third year because they attract an interactive crowd to the Zionsville Performing Arts Center and to Zionsville.” In addition to the show, Second City will offer two, 90-minute comedy improv workshops for all ages at 4:15 p.m. on Friday at a cost of $15 per person. “The workshops are very hands-on, not a

lot of sitting down. We try to keep the whole group up and going,” Mujica, who will be teaching the beginner group, said. “We start out with some warm-up exercises and some scene work, but then we tailor it to the group we have with us.” Classes are grouped by level, either beginner or advanced. Customizable small group workshops are also available by request. “It’s a good time,” Mujica said. “I think laughing is something that’s essential in everybody’s life, and, for these two hours, you can come and forget about anything else and lose yourself in the show and laugh along with us. We definitely enjoy being up there and hope you do too.”

Flight • R, 138 minutes Commentary by Chris Lloyd “Flight” is one of those movies that keeps throwing you for loops. Some of the loops are satisfying, while others just leave you discombobulated. The overall experience is worthwhile, even though I often found myself having difficulty getting emotionally invested in what was going on. Denzel Washington plays “Whip” Whitaker, a veteran airline pilot with a substance abuse problem. He drinks like a fish, snorts cocaine and carouses with a flight attendant mere hours before climbing into the cockpit. Once he’s in the captain’s chair, though, Whip is all business – seasoned, cocksure and steady. In fact, when the plane suffers a serious mechanical failure, he performs a virtually impossible maneuver to land the plane, saving more than

100 lives. He’s lauded as a national hero. But when an investigation reveals that he was stoned at the time, Whip retreats into a cocoon of self-loathing. He falls in with Nicole (Kelly Reilly), a heroin addict decades his junior, as they help shore up each other’s crumbling identities. Things slowly build to a big government hearing to assign blame for the crash. Will Whip be lauded or reviled? “Flight” is less about one man’s public journey from hero to reprobate than his descent into himself.

apricots, honey, soy sauce, ginger, garlic, cinnamon and cayenne. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to medium-low, and simmer for about 20 minutes, or until reduced by about half. Stir occasionally to prevent burning. Remove 1/4 cup of the glaze for basting, and set the remaining aside. Place the salmon filet on the greased broiling pan, and brush with glaze. Broil 3 inches from the heat for 8 to 12 minutes, or until salmon flakes easily with a fork. Gently turn over once during cooking, and baste frequently during the last 4 minutes. Serve with remaining glaze.

In a metal bowl over a pan of simmering water, combine bittersweet chocolate and shortening. Stir occasionally until melted and smooth. Stir in heavy cream and 1/4 cup of brandy. Place white chocolate in a separate bowl, and when the dark chocolate has melted, place the bowl of white chocolate over the pan of simmering water, stirring occasionally until smooth. Be sure to remove from heat as soon as it is mostly melted, white chocolate can be sensitive. Dip strawberries into chocolate, and let the excess drip off into the bowl before placing on waxed paper to set. When the strawberries have all been dipped in chocolate, dip a fork into the white chocolate, and drizzle back and forth over berries to stripe.

The next big training routine Commentary by April Conard I was lucky enough to get in on the ground floor when Zumba was just starting. It is now one of the leading forms of group exercise. Well, I am pleased to say that I have now found the next big thing in fitness, and like Zumba, this one has staying power. It is called TRX suspension training. Basically, what that means is you are utilizing suspension straps from a single anchor point against your own body weight. The TRX’s single point attachment provides the ideal mix of support and mobility to train strength, endurance, balance, flexibility and core all at once. Since this program works a lot of muscles, it must be for only the elite athlete, right? Wrong. Suspension training is for all levels, all paces and all goals. Because you can instantly modify resistance by adjusting body position, suspension training workouts are safe and effective for people of all fitness levels. Sounds great, except that you do not know the first thing about what to do with this “contraption.” Well, that is where I come in. I, along with my fellow instructors, have just completed a course on group suspension training, which means we are instructing you the entire class. Added benefits to a class setting are that Riverview to celebrate cardio program Saturday – Riverview Hospital Foundation will host its Red Ball Saturday at Lucas Estate, 1142 W. 106th St., Carmel. The ball, with presenting sponsor BMO Harris Bank, will celebrate Riverview Hospital’s cardiovascular program. It will include “Heartfelt” remarks by five Riverview patients, dancing, tours of the Lucas Estate and fundraising for the Riverview Hospital Foundation, which has secured more than $4 million in donations for cardiology since its inception. A welcome reception will begin at 5:45 p.m. with dinner at 7 p.m. Cost is $150 per person and $2,000 for a corporate table. For more information, contact Trish Oman at 7767317 or

the instructor is there to immediately answer questions and guide your workout to what is safe for you. Besides, working out in a group is always more fun! Still not convinced? Let me ask you this, do you absolutely love your abdominals? Are you ready to show off your slim waist at a moments notice? All core, all the time - this is another one of the major benefits of TRX suspension training. Your center of gravity is located just above your hips. By changing your body positions you shift this center of gravity. Suspension training exercise techniques are designed to intentionally displace your center of gravity, which activates the core muscles during every exercise. Whether you are performing a row, lunge, or even a bicep curl, your entire core is engaged to stabilize and balance the body in a truly functional way. Adding TRX suspension training to your fitness regime is going to take your body to the next level. If you have hit the wall and the inches or pounds have started to stall, or you just want to see more definition, TRX is your answer.

Zionsville home sales up in 2012 By Jim Litten • The 2012 housing market ended on a positive note in Central Indiana. With 1,490 pended sales in December in Central Indiana, overall 2012 year-to-date home sales are up 17.3 percent compared to the same time in 2011, according to statistics compiled by F.C. Tucker Co. On a monthly basis, December 2012 pended home sales rose 12.2 percent over December 2011, an increase of 162 homes sold in the nine counties that F.C. Tucker tracks. With 43 pended homes in December, Boone County was among the areas with a year-to-date increase over 2011. • In Boone County, 2012 year-to-date pended home sales increased 19.8 percent, increasing the number of pended home sales to 973 from 812 the previous year. • Zionsville home sales ended the year in positive territory as well. Year-to-date home closings soared 26.1 percent, increasing the

number of closings to 488 from 387. • Home prices in Zionsville continue to rise as well. The average sales price from January to December 2012 was $358,952, which is a 5.1-percent increase from the same time period the previous year. • Of the homes that sold in Zionsville last month, five were priced $500,000 to $999,999; five were priced $300,000 to $499,999; three were priced $200,000 to 299,999; and six were priced $100,000 to $199,999. • In addition to rising home prices, tightening inventory is a sign of market stabilization. In Zionsville, 162 homes were available for sale in December 2012 – 99 fewer homes than in December 2011. For 20 straight months, existing home sales have shown month-to-month improvement, and we’re optimistic low interest rates and affordable prices will continue to fuel the trend as we begin 2013.

Believing the best

Commentary by David Cain

Lance Armstrong changed course and admitted to doping. After years of vigilant defense of his innocence, he drastically and dramatically changed course. After years, it looks like he was more of a LieStrong than a LiveStrong guy. Like O.J. Simpson, most people know on some level that with such firsthand evidence, he was probably guilty. However, within all of us there is a natural instinct to believe other people. It’s the underlying principle of ratings, reviews, word of mouth marketing and anything that leverages the people factor. It’s also a natural instinct to believe the first thing you hear. The O.J. Simpson trial started the same way as the Lance Armstrong saga – a firm and definitive statement of innocence followed by an unwavering commitment to that statement or claim. Once the statement is made, despite a Businesses gather to fight DOMA – The battle over the Defense of Marriage Act – which sets marriage as exclusively being between man and woman – is about to heat up. Marriott International Inc., Thomson Reuters, eBay and 10 other businesses are part of the Business Coalition for DOMA Repeal. –

video of the person committing the crime, most people want to believe they didn’t do it. For products and services, a similar phenomenon exists. The first to the market, or the first to make the claim, generally grabs a share of the market that is challenging for an opposing view to overtake. The key, however, is to make sure the statement is bold and is the first. And, for longevity, it should be true! It’s hard to recover from bold lies and a purposeful deceit. Still, the lesson holds true: People believe people, and we all go against our instincts to believe the best in people. The best marketing is, therefore, arguably, people.

Business Move the needle: Pareto principle DOUGH

Commentary by CJ McClanahan Imagine for a minute that you have a daughter who is selling Girl Scout cookies, and she is obsessed (or maybe it’s you who’s obsessed, but that’s another column) with outselling everyone else in her pack/troop/den/whatever it’s called. You have decided to spend four hours next weekend helping your daughter sell cookies. As you consider all the possible tactics for unloading Thin Mints, Do-Si-Dos and Tagalongs, you brainstorm the following options; walk the neighborhood, drive to your relatives or get a table at the super busy Kroger in your neighborhood. Where should you spend the majority of your time? It’s likely that your neighbors and relatives will be an easier sell, but if you are truly committed to being the best you should tell your daughter to put on her biggest smile and spend the afternoon greeting thousands of shoppers at Kroger. In other words, 80 percent of your sales will probably come from 20 percent of your effort. The same is true in business. Over the years, I have asked hundreds of entrepreneurs an important question – “Do you feel that all of your customers are equally important?” Most professionals respond by telling me that every one of their customers gets the same great service. That is just plain silly.

Now, I do expect you to give all of your customers great service – but except for certain industries (health care, etc.), they should not all be treated the same. The truth is that some customers are far more important to your business than others, and until you figure this out, you will struggle to grow profitably. Most professionals and business owners have a handful of customers who buy a lot, never complain about the price and refer a lot of new business. These individuals are very different from the masses that tend to price shop your product/service, gripe about their experience and have yet to bring a friend to your business. The first group should receive the follow up phone call to make sure everything went OK. They should get a thank you card in the mail. They should get the best table in your restaurant. If you disagree with this advice, that is perfectly OK. Just recognize that you have a hobby and not a business. Identify your best customers and treat them like royalty. As with most things in life, the solution is simple. All you need to do is execute.

Airline news for 2013 Commentary by Tracy Line Lately, all we’ve seen is change in the airline industry: higher airfares, mergers and fees, fees, fees. Experts agree that more changes are coming for 2013. Read on to find out what you can expect from the airline industry in the coming year. Smaller planes – 747s are so yesterday. Regional jets and turboprop planes are the new way to fly. Why? For the airlines, it’s a matter of economic sense. It’s cheaper to fly a small, full plane than it is a large, empty one. This trend has been going on for a while, and is here to stay. Fewer routes – Unless you live in a major city, getting where you want to go just keeps getting harder. According to the U.S. Dept. of Transportation, the airlines have slashed thousands of shorter flights (500 miles or less) in the past two years. This also means fewer nonstop flights. Rate hikes – I know you didn’t want to read this, but it’s true. Rick Seaney of FareCompare. com states airfare rates went up 7 times in 2012. Global Soap Project – There’s a group out there that takes used soap, makes sure said soap is reprocessed and then sent to areas around the world where people need it. It’s called the Global Soap Project, and it has more than 1,000 hotels taking part. – blogs/mens-fashion/

He predicts rates will continue to rise unless oil goes down to and remains at $70 to $75 dollars a barrel. Fees for bags and other extras have also increased for 2013. But it’s not all bad… Cool new planes – Many airlines have added new planes to their fleets. And they’re considering customer needs while doing so. You’ll find larger overheads, roomier seats, and for those who can afford it, some very nice luxury options such as sleeping quarters, gourmet food and work desks. Financial stability – Profits are up in the friendly skies. And really, this is good news. If you have to fly, don’t you want to do so with a sound company that can afford to keep their planes running safely? Of course you do, it’s the only way to go!

U.S. falls out of “World’s Happiest Countries” top 10 – The United States of America is no longer one of the top 10 happiest countries in the world, according to Forbes.

Decorating / Grammar Guy

When decorating goes to the dogs Commentary by Vicky Earley

Typically, it takes only one ring of the doorbell to realize that a new client has a dog. These prepackaged bundles of energy, unconditional love and unadulterated dirt are a mixed blessing when they live under the same roof as my clients. I am, however, a believer that you can live happily ever after with a pet – and have a lovely home, too. Knowing how the pooch lives in the home is fundamental. If the corner of the sofa is “his spot,” your designer needs to know. Preparing for the canine assault on furnishings goes far beyond a spray coat of stain repellant. Often, these applications are temporary and set Fluffy up for banishment to the floor. I often recommend indoor/outdoor textiles for upholstered furnishings in a pet-friendly home. They are sturdy enough to manage the rigors of muddy paws, slobber and any other puppy matter that is left behind. Tight weaves provide another defense. Before committing to a fabric, do your own version of a textile stress test. Scratch, poke and dig with a fingernail at a candidate fabric. If a fabric can withstand this endurance test, it is probable that it can stand up to the worst that Rocky can dish out.

Silk and loose weave textiles are off limits unless your pup is trained to stay off the furniture and always does as he is told! Leather is an exceptional choice and works beautifully if fur and dirt are the main concerns. Although it will scratch, leather is easy to clean and disinfect with a mild detergent.

Regardless of material, pattern is a great disguise in the world of pet-friendly upholstery fabrics. If pet hair is an issue, select a fabric color that is close to the shade of Fuffy’s highlights. Flooring is the next element to consider. Wood and ceramic tiles are my first line of defense when pets are in the home. Regular cleaning and vacuuming takes care of nearly all the requirements. Of course, wood floors scratch but a few scratches can provide a warm, stately look in a room. Also, scratches are eliminated when wood is eventually refinished. Wool area rugs are excellent choices for their ability to hide dirt, repel moisture and handle the ongoing abuse of muddy paws. A pattern provides an additional layer of defense by concealing a multitude of doggy sins. For wall to wall carpet, a dense, cut pile rather than a loop carpet is best if Buddy has long nails. Keep these suggestions in mind when making design decisions, and your best friend will be out of the doghouse and sound asleep on his favorite chair!

Which is it: Either or neither?

Commentary by Jordan Fischer

I haven’t done a pet peeves column for a while, at least not one about my own annoyances, so I thought I would write a bit about the current grammatical mosquito, of sorts, which has been pestering me of late: the misuse of “either” and “neither.” I believe most readers already know the basics of using “either” and “neither. “Either” is used to signify that something is one or the other of two options. For example: “I will have either a sandwich or a salad for lunch.” “Either” can also be used to signify that something is both of two options: “You can find nice people on either side of the Mississippi.” “Neither” is used when something is, as my dictionary simply puts it, “not either” of two (or more) options. “Neither” is used in conjunction with “nor,” as in the famous (and unofficial) Postal Service Creed: “Neither snow nor rain nor heat nor gloom of night stays these couriers from the swift completion of their appointed rounds.” To paraphrase simply: “Either” is used when something is at least one of the options presented, while “neither” is used when it is not. Where I hear people go astray, however, is using these words in response to negative statements. For example, Person A might say, “I don’t like driving in snow,” to which Person B would respond, “Me neither.” Except Person B often replies, “Me either,” cueing angst and gnashing of teeth on my part. It is a small difference, to be

sure, and certainly one that’s generally accepted in common speech (although I’ve heard wonderful tales that in England it isn’t). But grammar is nothing if not a cult of rules, and the rules here are clear: “either” is to be used when something is, “neither” is to be used when something is not. Since Person A has already stated that she is not a fan of driving in the snow, for Person B to agree, he would have to also make a negative statement. His options are “neither” or “not … either,” which is the meaning “neither” was developed to convey. Some examples: “I’m not going to the parade today, and Jon is not either,” could just as easily be written, “I’m not going to the parade today, and neither is Jon.” You’ll notice that “neither” almost always comes before a linking verb like “is,” and “either” will almost always be found after it. You will also notice, I hope, that saying, “I’m not going to the parade today, and Jon is either,” does not make much sense. Although there are occasions when “either” and “neither” can be used interchangeably, it’s important to remember that “either” shouldn’t be used in the negative without an attached “not.” It’s just not a negative adjective. That’s what “neither” is for. Jordan Fischer is a contributing columnist for Current Publishing. To ask Jordan a grammar question, write him at

Start early to avoid doggie dental woes Commentary by Lisa Beals

Admit it. You leaned over to give your dog a big kiss and ARRGGH … bad breath! Not only is bad breath unpleasant, but it could also signal the presence of a more serious problem. More than 85 percent of dogs and cats over the age of four show signs of oral disease. The problem starts when bacteria builds up on the teeth and begins to form plaque and tartar, the precursors to gingivitis and periodontal disease. Left untreated, periodontal disease can contribute to tooth loss and more systemic health complications if the bacteria travels to the heart, lungs, kidneys, and nervous system. To screen for dental problems, check your dog’s mouth for bad breath, tartar build up, decaying teeth or gums that are swollen, bleeding, receding or abscessed. A yearly vet visit will help keep your dog’s teeth and gums in check. Your vet may recommend

in the puppy stage so he gets used to brushing as a normal part of life, just like nail trims and brushing out his coat. With an older dog, start by choosing a toothpaste made just for dogs that is both palatable and digestible. Start by having him smell the toothpaste and eventually lick the toothpaste. Gradually work toward having the dog let you put the toothbrush in his mouth for a short time. It’s important that the dog does not feel anxious and restrained, so you should attempt to pair the toothbrushing with a positive experience, like a special treat or a massage. Now is the time to start maintaining that great doggie smile.

a cleaning under anesthesia at a certain age as tartar begins to build up with age. You can help delay dental problems by brushing your dog’s teeth with a commercial toothpaste three times per week. It’s best to start brushing his teeth

Bath remodel considers owners’ long-term plans Commentary by Larry Greene

ORIGINAL BATHROOM: This home, located in the North Willow Farms subdivision on the north side of Indianapolis, was built in 1967. The current owners have lived there since 1972 and their reasons for updating their home were similar to many others: “There was nothing structurally wrong with the bathroom, but it was very dated. A few years ago, we decided we were going to stay in the house, so we began remodeling it. We started with the kitchen and then moved to the master bath.” DESIGN PHASE: The overall footprint of the space worked well already, therefore, the main goal of the remodel was to update. “The shower door was hazed over, the shower did not work well, and the grout was bad.” The designer was able to gain space from the toilet compartment to increase the size of the shower. SHOWER DETAILS: The new walk-in shower was tiled with a 12-inch by 18-inch stone tile in Grecia beige in a horizontal pattern. A storage wall niche was installed with a multicolored tile that matched the shower floor. The shower design included an arched doorway into the shower, which was tiled in 4-inch by

4-inch tumbled stone in a Sandlewood color. A frameless glass shower door also was installed. The new maple cabinetry in a cashmere finish with an auburn glaze was complimented with brushed bronze hardware. Venetian gold granite countertops were added, with rubbed bronze faucets. AGING-IN-PLACE: The owners plan to stay in their home for a long time and mobility and ease-of-use were a consideration in the design. A lower door threshold into the shower and a decorative yet functional grab bar were added to increase the usability of the space. FINAL RESULT: “Our favorite part of the new bathroom is the shower. Our designer knew our budget and helped us balance the materials and design costs so we could get the results we wanted.”
