Collecting sneakers for Haiti mission trip

By Liz Schrader •

While most Indiana high schoolers are worried about grades or their social lives, a group of 29 Zionsville Community High School students are focused on making a difference in the lives of Haitian children. The ZCHS students, in partnership with Pleasant View Elementary School, have started the GreenSneakers Fundraiser, a program that collects used tennis shoes to raise money for the students’ spring break mission trip to Haiti. The 29 high schoolers and seven adults will be traveling with the “I’m In” Haiti 2013 group to Port-au-Prince during spring break to build a sporting complex for underprivileged children in the area. “The GreenSneakers program was created as a way to offset the cost of the trip for parents and students,” said David Poindexter, executive director of “I’m In” Coaching Best, an organization that helps foster youth leaders and is helping to plan the Haiti trip. “The high schoolers have challenged the elementary schools to join the cause and create their own fundraisers.” Pleasant View Elementary School’s 70-member Philanthropy Club has accepted the challenge, setting a goal to collect 1,000 pairs of sneakers in February and March. Other area schools have joined in as well – Stonegate Elementary and Middle schools are organizing a shoe collection and

Members of the “I’m In” Haiti 2013 Zionsville High School team lead Pleasant View Elementary School’s Philanthropy club in games and activities about Haiti. Julia Kowala, Claire Poindexter, Anne Poindexter (veterans of last year’s Haiti trip) are joined by Morgan Cornacchini in mentoring students about Haiti and how tennis shoes make a huge impact on daily life while providing income for Haitian small business.

Union Elementary has collected 1,100 pairs of children’s underwear, one of the most common needs of Haitian children. The “I’m In” Haiti 2013 group earns 50 cents per pound for all tennis shoes collected and close to $1 per pair of shoes. In addition, GreenSneakers cleans and ships the collected shoes to family businesses in Haiti. The two ZHS Haiti trip team leaders, senior Madi Mann and junior Claire Poindexter's daughter, recently met with the Pleasant View Elementary Philanthropy Club for training, games and poster making to help the students reach their donation goal. This is the third year in a row ZHS students have traveled to Haiti for mission work, and each year the group continues to grow larger. Poindexter said the trip was

the brainchild of Mann, who traveled to Haiti as an eighth-grader and was impacted by what she saw. Poindexter said that most of the students involved played sports, which led to the idea to build a sporting complex just outside Port-au-Prince, complete with two soccer fields, a volleyball court and a cricket and baseball field. “Most Haitian children play in the streets, so the sports stadium will have a huge impact on the lives of local children,” Poindexter said. The group partnered with a local Haitian mission that donated two acres of land to their cause, making the building of a complex possible.

English is confusing - look it up Commentary by Ward Degler As a writer, I am often baffled by the language that I love. I read once that English was hands down the most difficult language to master. I believe it. There is no egg in eggplant or ham in hamburger. There is neither pine nor apple in pineapple. English muffins aren’t English, and both French fries and Chinese chop suey are strictly American. Quick sand works slowly, boxing rings are square, and a guinea pig is neither a pig nor from Guinea. Bad enough, but sometimes when I’m bored I try to figure out why writers write

but fingers don’t fing, grocers don’t groce, and hammers don’t ham. And if the plural of tooth is teeth, then the plural of booth should be beeth. And since the plural of goose is geese, by rights the plural of moose should be meese. I’ve also noticed that people drive on a parkway and park on a driveway. And, oh yeah, why do slim chance and fat chance mean the same thing? Now, consider the word “up,” which probably has more meanings than any other word in the English language. After all, we wake “up” in the morning, bring “up” a topic in a meeting and depend on the secretary to write “up” the minutes.

We call “up” our friends, brighten “up” a room, clean “up” the kitchen, lock “up” the house and fix “up” the old car. It clouds “up” and rains, and then, by golly, it clears “up.” All of which helps me work “up” an appetite and think “up” excuses for stirring “up” trouble in my column. And if you look “up” the word in the dictionary you’ll find at least 30 definitions for “up.” I could go on, but, for now, I think I’ll just wrap it “up.” Ward Degler lives in Zionsville with his wife and dog.

COMMUNITY School Board What Happened? STEM Academic Program update What it Means? STEM is an instructional program focusing on science, technology, engineering and mathematics. The instructional leaders of the program use the slogan “cultivating curiosity” and their goals center on helping students by improving problem solving, design principles and teamwork. Several students from elementary through high school shared their learnings and robots with the group.

What’s Next? The Steel Eagles robotics team qualified for the 2013 Vex Robotics High School World Championship to be held in Anaheim, Calif., in April.

What Happened? Energy Management Program Update What it Means? Jim Uland presented data on the conservation program, completing its second year. The net savings for the past year was $293,348 with a total net savings during 28 months of $661,238.

What’s Next? There are two more years of the contract and based on data from the past two years, Uland said, “We are making strides at conserving.”

What Happened? Proposal to expand 1 to 1 program with a “Bring your own device” initiative to Fifth grade. What it Means? Currently the 1 to 1 program is implemented for grades six through eight with a goal to have middle school students work independently on laptops, either owned or leased by the school. Both middle school principals presented data to support expanding the program to fifth grade and it was accepted by the board.

What’s Next?A meeting will be held with fourth-grade parents (for incoming fifthgraders) along with a parent survey and teacher meetings in the coming weeks. The board will finalize the direction of the program at its March 11 meeting.

What Happened? A consideration to help reduce overcrowding at Stonegate Elementary School was proposed and a vote on new construction areas was accepted. What it Means? A demographic study was conducted by the IBRC which confirmed overcrowding at Stonegate elementary at 110 percent. At the current growth rate with new construction, overcrowding would reach more than 1,000 students by 2020 (capacity is 610). A proposal to repurpose Boone Meadow Elementary, currently at 37 percent occupancy, for K-4 was proposed. The board accepted the proposal to assign the areas known as Blackstone and Maple Grove to Boone Meadow Elementary School for the 2013-2014 school year.

What’s Next? Real estate developers affected will be contacted to inform them of the change. Also, Supt. Dr. Scott Robison and CFP Patti Bostwick will be meeting with Eagles Nest and Anson at Boone Meadow residents on Wednesday to answer questions and discuss the targeted move of students in these areas to Boone Meadow Elementary School. A final decision will likely be made by the Board at the March 11 meeting.

State of the Town 2013 excerpts Commentary by Jeff Papa Efforts to establish an Arts & Cultural District and a welcome center for Zionsville are underway, and several parks projects made significant progress in 2012. Grants were received for a tree inventory and new playground equipment, and several improvements were made at the municipal golf course. The Zionsville Police Dept. responded to 12,672 calls in 2012, hosted its Fourth Teen Academy, and received overwhelming public support for establishing a K9 program. ZPD also established a neighborhood watch program in 2012. Chief VanGorder continued his excellent work guiding the Zionsville Fire Dept. ZFD hired six new full-time staff, and opened a third fire station. Due to excellent planning, foresight and cooperation from ZCS, this facility was paid for (and under budget) when it opened with donated land from ZCS and cash savings by the town. To achieve greater diversification of our tax base, while planning for appropriate growth, we restructured our Planning Dept. into a Dept. of Planning and Economic Development. In coordination with the RDC and the town council, this office worked on several exciting projects in 2012. 2012 saw completion of the Economic Development Strategic Plan, which reviewed planning for the Southeast portion of our town.

projects include improvements to First Street, extension of water and sewer to new development areas, and two roundabout-style projects along Ford Road to alleviate traffic issues. In early 2012, Zionsville volunteers organized ZBowl events to attract visitors. Zionsville also began providing space at town hall for a satellite office of Boone County Senior Services and completed the first-ever transition of qualifying neighborhoods from the rural district to the urban service district. When the town was faced with a very significant increase in health insurance costs, Ed Mitro, Sue Jones, and councilors Mundy and Haak found an alternative that gave town employees more choices while eliminating the increase in cost. We also worked with the outstanding collaboration of the school board, Superintendent Robison and Mike Shafer to voluntarily limit the town’s budget to avoid excessive negative impact on the schools. ZCS also shared its fiber optic network with town government buildings. For the complete report, visit under Community and select Government.

Business mixes art and hair By Liz Schrader • Husband and wife duo Andrea and Chris Fortney have mixed art and style with Cheveux Salon and Spa. Located on 10 N. Main St. across from Eagle Creek Coffee Co., Cheveux offers cuts, colors, highlights and waxing and features paintings from local artists in the salon. Andrea, who has been a stylist for nine years and a Zionsville resident for six, said she wanted to bring something different to the Zionsville area. “I love the Zionsville community and wanted to have a good location and offer really good customer service,” she said. “I love the feeling of making people happy and am confident we can bring our clients the services they need.” Since opening on Jan. 10, Cheveux has participated in the Zionsville art walks on the first Friday of every month from 5 to 8 p.m., and Fortney said they had a great response from both art-goers and clients alike, selling around 10 paintings in the first month. The Salon currently employs three stylists and a receptionist and plans to expand its services to offer messages and facials at the end of this month. In addition to its normal services, Cheveux offers mainstay ammonia-free hair color, Bumble and Bumble hair products and Brazilian blowouts. While this is the couple’s first business foray

COMMUNITY Philanthropy

Luncheon raises grant money By Janelle Morrison • The Zionsville Education Foundation will host it’s annual In Style fashion show and luncheon on March 1 at the Boone Meadow School in Zionsville. ZEF is a nonprofit organization that is separate from the Zionsville Community School system and whose mission is to promote academic excellence by granting funds to teachers, students and student clubs within the community’s schools. “We assist in four different ways,” Tracy Phillips, the Executive Director for ZEF, said. “The first is with the traditional classroom grants that are given in the fall and spring. The In Style luncheon will be a fundraiser for our fall grant cycle. Within one year, all of the funds raised by an event will go right back into the classroom.” A fairly new grant offered through ZEF is the Student Enrichment grant. The ZEF board recognized the need for funds by student clubs. Imagination Destination, Future Problem Solvers and the Robotics Team are examples of the extracurricular clubs that benefit from these grants. These specific grants are written by the students and are given at the discretion of the grants committee and ZEF board. Two Imagine/Professional Developmental grants are awarded each year to teachers and go toward their professional development, as these fees have been cut from the school’s budgets.

The fourth program is a group that ZEF teamed up with, Teachers can post small programs that are seen nationally to raise awareness and attract potential donors. ZEF matches a grant when it has reached a halfway point, and the grant is then fulfilled. This year’s In Style luncheon and fundraiser will offer it’s guests a new experience when they walk in the door. Phillips describes the transformation of the Boone Meadow School into a miniature display of what Zionsville has to offer visitors and residents. “We are making this event very Zionsville centric, so as our patrons walk in, it will be as if they are walking down Main Street and they can do a little window shopping,” Phillips said. Participating local merchants who have contributed to the In Style luncheon throughout the years include Secret Ingredient, Ballerinas and Bruisers, Lesley Jane, B. Wright Ltd., Lilly’s Boutique Gallery and Wildcat Creek Outfitters. New contributors this year are Akard True Value and Nikki Blaine Couture. There will be a silent auction followed by the luncheon and style show. With attendance averaging 350 people, reservations are required. Tickets for the luncheon and style show are $55 each. Ticket information is available from Tracy Phillips, Executive Director, at 733-4805 or or the ZEF website at

Silence builds tranquility Commentary by Jonathan Matthes Silence. Can you hear it? Don’t be ashamed if you can’t. It can be hard to hear. The sound of silence is often deafened by our music, or our television or whatever else we can find. Because, if we’re going to be honest, we don’t like silence. We actively avoid it. When we are alone, our only company is us, our thoughts and God. And that terrifies us. But there is no need to be scared of silence. Silence, as Elijah reminds us, is where God speaks to us. Not through earthquakes, rain, or thunder, but in silence. It was in silence that the giant sequoias stretched into the sky. And it was in silence, granted with the aid of the vacuum of space, that man planted his foot on the moon. Flowers bloom and babies grow in their mother’s womb, in silence. Silence does get a bad rap. Often it’s intertwined with loneliness. At least that’s what Simon and Garfunkel associated it with. But loneliness and silence are not identical. You can be lonely in the middle of Times Square on New Year’s Eve. Silence, however, has other synonyms: peace, solace and serenity. All of which are some attributes we could use more of.

You see, what makes silence so serene is the exact same thing that makes it so terrifying. In silence we must confront ourselves. There is no noise to hide behind. Often times we are afraid to view ourselves, our own souls, through the revealing, naked prism of silence. We are weary of what we will discover. It’s like how we don’t like to hear our voice through a recording. It just sounds so weird, so uncomfortable! But we should confront ourselves. We should view ourselves through silence. Really, we need silence. We need it to be able to self-reflect. We need it to be able to see ways for self-improvement. We need it to recognize what our genuine strengths are. And we need it to build tranquility, “peace-and-quiet,” in our own person. At the very least, we should know ourselves well enough that we can be comfortable and confident enough to spend a few moments alone and not be afraid of the silence.

Since it cannot build its superstore, will Walmart try something else By Julie Osborne • Hundreds of residents packed Town Hall last Tuesday night to hear whether the Board of Zoning Appeals was going to allow a Walmart Superstore to build in their town. The majority of them left very happy. Walmart wanted to build a 156,621-squarefoot superstore on land it purchased in 2005 on Michigan Road north of 106th Street, but at the end of a spirited three-hour debate, board members voted 4-0 against Walmart’s request. The primary sticking point revolved around the size of the proposed store. Walmart representatives were requesting a variance from two of the town’s business zoning restrictions. The ordinance states that no single-use facility, whether free-standing or contained in an integrated center, can exceed 60,000 square feet of gross floor area and no integrated center can exceed 125,000 square feet of total gross floor area. Walmart’s facility was more than double the size of the 60,000 square foot limit and about 30,000 square feet over the integrated center restriction. Comparatively, the existing Marsh at 106th Street and Michigan Road is approximately 64,000 square feet. Walmart’s attorney, Joe Calderon, presented the store’s side, arguing that the proposed size was comparable to the nearby Target and Home Depot stores just south of 106th Street on Michigan Road. “What we propose tonight fits with the corridor. It is not unusual, atypical,” Calderon said. “What these size restrictions fail to do is look at proportionality standards and what fits on that piece of land. We’ve met every other standard except the variances.” Remonstrators and the town staff disagreed with that logic, citing 106th Street as a “transitional boundary” and using nearby Carmel’s zoning ordinances as an example. In 2006, Carmel and Zionsville worked in collaboration to create ordinances limiting building size, with 106th Street as a border, which begins an area of 10 | February 19, 2013

less-intense commercial development that transitions to residential developments. Lana Funkhouser, a past Board of Zoning Appeals member and past plan commission president who was part of those earlier discussions, confirmed, “There was a distinction between north and south of 106th Street.” Wendy Brant, a 54-year resident and former Boone County commissioner, added, “We wanted to see a transition to residential areas that would not affect property values.” Carmel’s ordinance does not restrict “big box” development along Michigan Road until north of 106th Street, when an 85,000-square-foot restriction begins. In 2006, Zionsville adopted the 60,000-square-foot restriction for businesses within town borders no matter the location. Arguments presented by remonstrators, mostly residents of Zionsville, ranged from concerns about increased crime to the store being open 24 hours to decreased property values. Discussion around Walmart identifying itself as an “integrated center” also was disputed as only 2,800 square feet of the proposed 156,621 square feet would be dedicated to “tenants” with no individual entries nor resemblance to other integrated centers in the area, such as Boone Village. A petition in opposition to Walmart signed by more than 800 residents also was presented to the Board, and during the evening, only one supporter of Walmart stepped to the microphone saying, “I got my start at Walmart and maybe, in this store, someone else will too.” Near the end of the meeting, Wayne DeLong, the director of planning and economic development for the Town of Zionsville, summarized in his staff report that Walmart had not clearly identified why it needed a variance of develop-

More than 200 people, residents from Carmel and Zionsville, came out to the Board of Zoning Appeals meeting Tuesday, most to speak against the proposed Walmart Superstore and the size variances requested by the retail giant.

Heather Lusk, Zionsville resident, was one of 14 remonstrators who lined up to speak against the proposed variance request. She shared concerns about noise, crime and property values of the nearby Westons, Timber Ridge and the adjacent apartment building. “My daughter has a friend there (apartments).

ment standards beyond the 60,000 square feet allowed. A similar summary statement was included in the report for the 125,000-square-foot variance request for an integrated center: “As staff, we cannot conclude from petitioner’s filing that what is being proposed qualifies as an integrated center.” Board Member Gregory Morical concluded the discussion by stating, “One point that is important to make is that the burden is on the petitioner to show us why they need the variance. Based upon what we heard tonight and the findings of fact, I feel they failed to meet that burden.” As the vote passed and both variance requests were denied, the crowd was elated. Leigh Ann Akard, owner of Akard True Value in Boone Village, said, “Regardless of who it is, it was such a huge request. I think the Board of Zoning made the right decision otherwise they would be setting a precedent.” She added, “It’s not a small, ‘can we bend?’ It was ‘how far can we bend’?” Small business owner Scott Brothers, owner of Window Genie in Zionsville, was also in favor of the board’s decision. “I’m excited the Town listened to the community and put the community’s feelings ahead of pure economic reasons,” Brothers said. “The property is valuable, and we just have to find the right use for it.” Town Council member Susana Suarez also commented on the economic issues surrounding the decision. “Town Council members were in a quandry,” she said. “We want to increase the tax revenue, but the public sentiment was against it. Walmart did not meet the requirements. It’s a bittersweet issue for us.” Board of Zoning Appeals members as well

as DeLong were unable to comment on the decision until the negative findings of fact are adopted in the March Board of Zoning Appeals meeting. Despite the excitement of most residents over the variance request being denied, the battle may not be completely won. After the meeting, Walmart Senior Director Public Affairs and Government Relations Nicholas Infante said, “We presented our best case, a store that would service the Village and surrounding areas, something that has worked in our experience.” When asked if they would sell the land and move on, Infante said, “It’s been eight years of work. We’ll have to regroup and see what our options are.” One option is to change the building design to meet the size requirements and refile in one year, per board procedures. However, according to DeLong, “Petitioners can ask the board to refile early if there is a substantial change in the petition. We’ve done that before. It’s not unchartered.” Time will tell if the “War-mart” battle is finished for good, or if it’s just a stalemate.

Can Big Box be stopped? A 200,000-square-foot Meijer may break ground this year on 19 acres in Anson. According to Bryan Brackemyre, Interim Executive Director of the Boone County Economic Development Corp., “The plans were approved in December 2007 by Boone County and the Town of Whitestown. In early 2008, Meijer purchased the land with a plan to build in 2013 and open in 2014. It’s not confirmed (to start in 2013), but we’re optimistic.”

Vote on Walmart: No compromise?

Car talk

It is our position that the automobile seems to be taking a back seat as the primary form of transportation among the new generation. The August 2012 issue of Motor Trend magazine reported that young people are showing a remarkable decrease in the desire to own a car and even to drive a car. Based on a Frontier Group study, “Transportation and the New Generation” by Benjamin Davis and Tony Dutzik, the article notes that the share of 14-to 34-year olds without a driver’s license was 26% in 2010, up from 21% in 2000. . . The same age group walked to more destinations in ’09 than in ’01, and the distance they traveled by public transit increased 40 percent. While these statistics among the younger generation are interesting, is a decline in automobile use realistic among the sprawl of the suburbs? Access to the Monon Trail, an increased number of well-marked bike lanes and more sidewalks along main thoroughfares is a good start. More communities (i.e. Frankfort, IN) have adopted Complete Streets policies that promote integrated transportation planning for all modes of transportation; cars, transit, bikes, pedestrians, etc. Mass transit discussions are taking flight, however, can old dogs learn new tricks in their lifetimes by embracing walkable communities?

Wedded bliss

Commentary by Terry Anker

It is a dangerous game to give advice. It is especially risky to offer suggestions on marriage. Yet, most of us still do it. There are countless books, blogs and brew-meisters all dedicated to helping the hapless find their way to a productive and satisfying union. Cliché directs us that they “key” to a happy marriage is a happy wife. Perhaps that is the point, but how does one create the happy to which it refers? Before Carolyn and I made the trip down the aisle decades ago, we were required by the church hosting our wedding to meet for a scripted series of get-togethers with a local couple that might guide a successful beginning to our anticipated nuptuals. I often thought at the time that they were the gatekeepers in place to keep us from making a disastrous move. So, on our first meeting, we took a very lengthy compatibility test. Our proctors “graded” the survey and found that indeed we had a chance of attainment in marriage. When I asked if others had failed, the

husband turned to me and related that they often wondered whether the would-be newlyweds had just met in the driveway before taking the test – not only lacking compatibility but also interest! So, said our model couple, we could talk about the real requirements to success in lifelong relationships. Young and eager, we leaned in awaiting receipt of their garnered wisdom. “Pick-up your towels,” said the wife. “And, visit with her friends like they are your own,” said the husband. For the next several weeks, we learned of the basic interactions upon which cohabitation is built – responsibility, finance and goal-setting. There was no magic pill and no easy cliché. Could it be that simple respect is the key ingredient to making relationships work? Terry Anker is an associate editor of Current Publishing, LLC. You may e-mail him at terry@

It is our position that the Zionsville Zoning Board of Appeal’s 4-0 rejection of a variance sought by super-retailer Walmart might have been a prudent move, but it also struck us as a blow to free enterprise. In the end, Walmart did overreach, but certainly a compromise remains a possibility, no? Think of the tax rolls a Walmart would bolster. Understandably, there has been concern from town merchants about a possible negative effect the big-box giant would have on their receipts, and residents worry about traffic and crime. We choose to view it another way. Having a Walmart in town would be well more of a threat to Target and Marsh. There couldn’t possibly be a more stark contrast in a shopping experience than the superstore versus the quaintness of the small and valuable shops of the village and points west. They have withstood the arrivals of Target and Marsh, in our opinion, and would fare well, based on them being “experiences” – to speak nothing of the incredible personal touches that customers receive - in their own right. Although the board has spoken, now and forever let the free market reign. ••• Civic Theatre has a regular laugh riot/hole-inone on its hands with current production “The Fox on the Fairway.” Written by Ken Ludwig, “Fox,” at times, will leave you belly laughing, as the theatre company over-delivers on the hilarity of a fictional golf-tournament wager.

The courage to speak Commentary by Julie Osborne As I write the Walmart cover story this week, my mind keeps returning to one person. He was the one at the end, near the three-hour mark in the meeting, who approached the microphone and simply said, “I got my start at a Walmart. I just wanted to thank them. Maybe this new store would help someone else get their start too.” As I looked around, people’s faces turned to dismay and a few even sighed in disbelief probably thinking, “How could anyone say anything good about them?” But, he did. He was the lone defector, the only one to stand up and speak a positive word about Walmart. He took a risk to say thank you and to tell his story. He had the courage to speak against the crowd. As I reflect on the night, I wish I would have gotten a chance to talk to him afterward. I didn’t even get his name (rookie reporting mistake). But, if I did, I probably would never print it for fear his home would be bombed. You Cubs fans out there know what I mean. You will never forget the 2003 championship and the name Steve Bartman, the fan who reached out and grabbed the now famous Bartman Ball which became the turning point in the game. I was so worried about that overly excited Cubs fan, and I would be worried about this overly grateful former Walmart employee, too. But seriously, I admired him. He had the

courage to stand up and speak, after all the emotional testimonials against Walmart, who most in the room considered the enemy or in one resident’s words, “a community killer.” I wonder if I would have done the same in his position? How often do I back down and remain silent, especially when I’m the minority? The meeting on Tuesday is one I won’t soon forget, especially that quiet stranger. Actually, there was another memorable person of the many who stood out that night. He was a man who had moved from Fishers to Zionsville (I didn’t get his name either, darn it, and my recorder ran out of space – rookie mistake No. 2). He responded to Walmart’s statement about accomodating Zionsville shoppers by being open 24 hours with the words, “Have you ever gone to downtown Zionsville after 9 at night?” With that, the crowd burst out in laughter, and I did, too. May the village continue to prosper with all its unique personalities, glorious quirks and adorning character and charm with or without a Walmart.

I need a 27-hour day, please Commentary by Danielle Wilson There just aren’t enough hours in the day. I’ve been so overwhelmed, in fact, that I am just now sitting down to pen this column, less than 20 hours before my deadline. Even my yoga class couldn’t settle me entirely. If you have kids, I’m sure you’ll relate. For starters, I’m trying to manage four children in four different athletic programs. Not surprisingly, none of them wanted to do the same thing, darn it, so my husband and I must hold morning briefings over who has to be where and when. It’s become sort of a sick logic problem: If Geoffrey has to be in Noblesville for indoor soccer practice and Andrew has a swim meet at Purdue, how will Corinne get to her volleyball game in Lawrence by five so that Maddie isn’t late for basketball in Carmel? And of course, when our kids decide they’d also like to try art club, French club, the Green Team environment club, winter track prep, saxophone and dance (“If I’m going to be on Broadway, mother, I simply must take ballet, tap and jazz!”), what do we do? Well, just what you’d expect from parents who clearly have issues saying “no.” We sign the permission slip, pay the fees, and add six more events to the calendar. If simultaneous on-time arrival at various parts of the state wasn’t challenging enough, I’ve thrown in my own ball of crazy. In addition to the afore-

customIzIng DIstInctIve sPAces foR 85 yeARs.

mentioned yoga and my day job, I thought it’d be fun to coach, volunteer at a food pantry and make some extra cash by tutoring. (The book sales just aren’t cutting it, and I still have my heart set on these fabulous black riding boots!) And Doo has his own hands full with work, the house, and our new puppy. He also thought now to be the perfect time to quit smoking. I know, I know. We made our king-sized bed, now we must lie in it. It’s just that sometimes I wonder if I really am going to lose my mind. That or develop severe lower back issues from the amount of time spent in my dilapidated minivan. Even my phone has decided to throw in the towel, having determined yesterday that desperate texting to organize last-minute carpooling was just too much trouble, thank you very much. At least I can wallow in self-pity and know that some of you will empathize, even while judging me. Parenting is tough, and schlepping kids around town is exhausting, but I’m certain we’d regret not helping our children explore their interests when possible. So we’ll suck it up, invest in Doan’s, and pray that three hours miraculously get added to each day. Peace out.

A couple of weeks ago, I threatened to throw out my wife’s copy of Emily Post’s “Etiquette,” a compilation of advice on proper comportment, updated periodically by the descendants of the late manners icon. I have now decided the book may be a valuable addition to our library, not because I have any intention of changing my boorish ways, but because the volume is a gold mine of potential columns. Proper humor protocol requires that you take advantage of an opportunity like this. One of the chapters is about appropriate demeanor when visiting a home with servants. The authors observe that many people have questions in this area. Yes, I have a question: How come I don’t know a single person who has servants? I skipped those 10 pages. In this edition of the book, the writers claim that the basic rules covering a week-long visit to a friend’s home have never changed. “Easy or not, you must conform to the habits of your host family… have meals at their hours, eat what is put before you and go to bed according to their schedule.” This is similar to the advice found in The Idiot’s Guide to Joining a Cult and is likely why so many beagles run away from home. On some of the issues Mary Ellen takes a

different point of view. The authors say, for example, that even if your hostess has not begun to eat, once several people have been served at the table, it is OK to pick up your fork and begin. I tried that once and my wife also picked up her fork… and stuck it in my thigh. Punctuality is important when it comes to dinner parties. To prevent guests from showing up late, it is suggested that the host “ask invitees to come about a half hour before you expect them to arrive.” I read that six times, and I’m still not totally sure what it means. If you try this idea and your friends start ringing the doorbell while you are still in your underwear, you may need to rethink the concept. The chapter ends with a cautionary note. “Overnight visits absolutely require written thank-you notes.” I couldn’t agree more. I spent a weekend at my sister’s house in New York recently and despite what an awesome houseguest I was, not a word of gratitude from her in almost a month. I thought our mother taught us better.

Carmel: Voca People • Voca People is a new international vocal theater performance that combines vocal sounds and a-cappella singing with the art of modern beat box which imitates the sounds of drums, trumpets, guitars, other instruments and musical effects. All this is done without using any musical instruments on stage, performed in a humoristic way and with audience participation. Voca People is performing this Saturday at 7 p.m. at the Palladium, 1 Center Green. Tickets range from $48 to $83 with a student discount available. For more information, visit or call 843-3800.

Curtain’s up on the classics at Wafford Theater

By Robert Herrington • “Field of Dreams” taught us, “If you build it they will come.” Noblesville businessman Jim Wafford has built a 30 seat intimate theater in a vacant building that connects to his other businesses, Logan Street Signs & Banners and Noblesville Trophies, at 1744 S. 10th St. “I always had a dream to have a little theater where people can come and enjoy themselves,” Wafford said. “At the park, people would tell me they wish there was a place they could go and see old movies all the time.” Wafford said the purpose of the theater was to raise funds for the Free Classic Movies in the Park series he puts on for the community. This will be the third summer Wafford is presenting the classic movie series, which began during a conversation with Noblesville Parks and Recreation Assistant Director Brandon Bennett. During the discussion, Bennett told Wafford that the parks department budget had been cut and they would be showing fewer movies the next year.

The Basics Wafford Theater, 1744 S. 10th St., will show classic movies at 7 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday. Cost is $3 with most concession items for $1. “We’re trying to keep concessions low and people’s spirits high,” owner Jim Wafford said. 14 | February 19, 2013

“I saw a need for free family entertainment, and no one else is doing it,” said Wafford, who also shows films at the Hamilton County 4-H Fairgrounds during the winter. “I love classic movies. I’m kind of romantic. I just like the older dress. I wouldn’t mind living back there. There’s a lot of class.” Before screening a film, Wafford must contact his representative to get licensing rights. Movies cost Wafford $200 to $400 each screening. To air “Casablanca” to 113 people in 2011, it cost Wafford $405. “The more awards it won, the more expensive the movie is,” he explained. “Most people don’t realize you have to pay for movies.” To pay for the licensing agreement, Wafford rearranged his advertising budget and has sought help from businesses to sponsor the film series. To lessen the amount coming out of his pocket, Wafford is using his theater to raise funds to support his free movie programs. Another way Wafford is trying to raise money is with a DVD recycling program. He is accepting donations of movies that he is reselling for $5 to $10. “One hundred percent goes to support Movies in the Park,” he said. Besides being a theater, the multi-use room is available to rent for meetings or clubs. The theater’s chairs and risers can be removed or replaced with table and chairs depending on needs. Elizabeth Boase, a member of the Central Indiana Real Estate Investors Association, has already used the room for a meeting.

“A PowerPoint looks great up there,” she said of the theater’s giant screen. “It’s really good for teaching a small class.” Wafford said hardcore gamers also can connect their preferred platform and play their favorite videos on the 14-foot by 7-foot screen. The theater also has two 46-inch televisions mounted on the sides of the screen. “I hope to raise half of our funds by renting it out,” he said. “I can’t wait to sit down and watch a good movie on it,” Gary Bartunek said. Wafford Theater will show classic movies at 7 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday. “We will offer more showings if the crowds come,” he said.

Upcoming Schedule ★ Tuesday – Two Movie Tuesday with

“Captain Scarface” (1953) and “The Racketeer” (1929) ★ Wednesday – Western Wednesday with “My Pal Trigger” (1946) ★ Thursday – “Cheers for Miss Bishop” (1941) ★ Friday – “The Snows of Kilimanjaro” (1952) ★ Feb. 23 – Sinisterly Bad Theater Saturday with “Cat Women of the Moon” (1953) and “The Atomic Brain” (1963) For more information and movie schedule, visit

On the one hand are people who think they run too long and are self-indulgent – the sort of folks who joke about “LOTR” having five endings. Then there are those like myself who love to see every subplot and nuance of our beloved books captured onscreen with a slavish devotion to detail. For those, HBO’s “Game of Thrones” is the nirvana of sword & sorcery fealty. Season 2 saw a considerable ramping up in the world war overtaking the land of Westeros, as the death of King Robert Baratheon left the

succession to the throne in dispute. The narrative generally circles around the competing claims of three clans: the rich and power-hungry Lannisters, the gruff but noble Stark northmen and the Baratheon brothers. The show does deviate from the book in ways both big and small, such as Robb Stark’s speedy romance and marriage. But the story takes on a grandiose, epic feel as it builds toward the huge battle of Blackwater. Movie: A-minus Read more of Chris Lloyd’s review of current films and DVDs at www. or www.

The Center for the Performing Arts held an intimate reception for those community members participating in the Center’s 2013 Encore Celebration Gala June 28-29. The reception was held at Fleming’s Prime Steakhouse & Wine Bar in Indianapolis. Michael Feinstein, a multiplatinum-selling, five-time Grammy-nominated recording artist and the artistic director of the CFTPA, expressed his gratitude to the region and its residents for embracing not only the Great American Songbook, but the arts as a whole.

What possessed me to do this?

How an elder law attorney decided to play hostess to 300 caregivers

Commentary by Carol Applegate Registered Nurse and Elder Law Attorney As an elder law attorney and registered nurse, I’m often in a position to provide my clients with a wide spectrum of advice and ideas. It’s a sometimes daunting task assisting families navigate the complex and confusing waters of Medicaid, Medicare and guardianship. But there are times when I get some great tips and ideas from clients. That happened earlier this year when the daughter of a client – mired in the task of caregiving – suggested I read, “A Bittersweet Season: Caring For Our Aging Parents – And Ourselves.” “You have to read this, Carol,” she said. “I just could not get through all this if I hadn’t read this book.” And so I did. I read Jane Gross’ best selling book that details her own journey as a caregiver as well as providing insight to and actual tactics on managing that process. As someone on the front lines of elder issues with family caregivers, it became immediately clear that this book was a wealth of knowledge presented in both a compassionate yet objective way. And, I wanted to share this message with as many people as I could. That was early last spring; six months later, we are in the final stages of preparing for our Voice of Aging Family Caregivers’ Conference scheduled for Feb. 26 where we anticipate 300 attendees. In addition to the keynote presentation by Jane Gross, we have put together four break-out sessions on topics ranging from The Hardest

ing for a loved one today or anticipate doing so in the future, this conference is intended to provide access to some of the best resources in Central Indiana, not to mention advice on coping from health and social service professionals. I am thrilled and excited to be able to present this program. I am confident that those facing the challenging and even consuming days of caregiving will come away with a wealth of knowledge and renewed vision of their very important role.

For more information and for a full roster of current sponsors, log on to or call Applegate Elder Law at 522-1325.

Conversation is the First One to Getting Your Life Back: A Mindful Approach to Your Caregiver Journey. We will also be gathering exhibitors representing some of the most respected service providers in Central Indiana. We are even assembling a toolkit that every attendee will take home with them that captures the information they’ve received and to which they can add their own information as time goes on. Until you’ve been in the role as a caregiver, it’s difficult to appreciate how overwhelming it can be to be responsible for the care of a loved one. Not only is the caregiver stressing daily over trying to make the best decisions possible for their loved ones, but they’re dealing with internal issues related to guilt and a lost sense of balance in their own personal lives. Whether you’re car-

Conquering the stages of change Commentary by Kim Rockey If resolution is a dirty word when it comes to changing a bad habit or creating a good one, you’re not alone. Let’s explore the mechanics of the readiness to change from the Transtheoretical Model of Behavior Change (Prochaska and Di Climente, 1988) and its effect on our decisionmaking process. Stages of change include: • Pre-contemplation: not ready to exercise, not interested • Contemplation: thinking about making a behavior change • Preparation: doing something related to exercise, but not meeting guidelines • Action: meeting set criteria for less than six months (most susceptible to drop out) • Maintenance: Sustaining six months or more of exercise You will move back and forth through these stages. It is helpful to have a coach or friend to help you get started. Beginning your workouts at the same time each day is beneficial. So is proper guidance, a solid set of skills and accountability – these elements will help you process through the changes. You will have some

positive and negative thoughts, but the benefits outwiegh any negativity that might get in the way of creating a healthy habit. These behavior change stages can be repeated and applied across the dimensions of wellness – and other areas of your life. Research shows applying these principles leads to less stress and better quality of life. You only get one body to use for a short period of time. We do not want to be a community of regretful people for the way in which we have spent our personal resources. As you make changes for the better, your family, friends and co-workers will notice a difference. Let’s get started: 1) obtain credentialed, quality coaching; 2) set some attainable, objective goals with your coach; 3) set a consistent time and place to get started; 4) pick a safe atmosphere and get to work. You will never be sorry about the commitment if you do it in a smart way.

The physical property was also put up for auction through Morphy’s but no buyer was found. The property, which includes an elevator, three garage spaces and 13 offstreet parking spaces, is now listed for sale for $2 million.

Conditional grammar Commentary by Jordan Fischer A lot of people don’t know this about me, but I almost went to school for computer programming. One of the first pieces of computer syntax you learn in basic programming is “if-then” statements. In computer terms, if you press the “K” button on your keyboard, then a “K” will appear on your screen. If the computer’s internal clock reads 7 a.m., then it will conduct an automated virus scan. Like most aspects of programming, “if-then” statements are based on an element of grammar: conditional sentences. During my explanation last week of comma splices, I found myself using conditional sentences frequently, and so I thought it would be appropriate to examine them this week. Conditional sentences are used to express implied or hypothetical situations and their consequences. As with our computer, in a conditional sentence if one thing is true, then another thing will happen. For example: If I do not go to work, then I will lose my job. If I do not wash my clothes, then they will become dingy. There are three main types of conditional sentences in English: implicative, predictive (or hypothetical) and counterfactual (or unfulfilled hypothetical). So far we have only talked about implicative sentences: If “A” happens, then “B”

will happen. Implicative sentences are used for certainties. Hypothetical/predicative sentences are used for possibilities. For example: If there’s a zombie outbreak, civilization will collapse. Although it is a possible scenario, a zombie outbreak does not necessarily mean a collapse of civilization. The last sort of conditional sentence, counterfactual/unfulfilled hypothetical, is used for statements which are obviously false or unlikely. For example: If I were a betting man, I’d say this will be a mild winter. The understanding is that the speaker is not a betting man, and therefore does not wish to predict the season’s weather. This form is often used to state things which you aren’t going to do, or which aren’t going to happen. Before I leave you, I want to note that the conditional sentence is one occasion in which commas may be used without coordinating conjunctions. Because the first part of a conditional sentence is a dependent clause – “If ‘A’” – and not an independent clause, a conjunction is not needed to attach it to the main clause – “Then ‘B.’”

INSIDE & OUT Indoors

Guest suite remodel features old-world feel Commentary by Larry Greene ORIGINAL SPACE: This West Carmel home was built in the 1980s, and the current homeowners have lived there for eight years. According to the homeowner, “The space was a kid’s playroom. They now have the basement to use, so we wanted to turn it into an extra bedroom suite for family and guests. We were picturing a grandmother’s suite.” DESIGN PHASE: The original footprint worked fairly well for the new design, though walls and plumbing had to be added to allow for a new bathroom. Adding the bathroom required that the double doors into the bedroom be moved as well. The slope of the ceiling was raised to 10 feet, stealing space from the attic, but not altering the exterior roof line. WOOD PLANK CEILING: To achieve the look the homeowner was going for, the ceiling was covered with engineered wood plank flooring from Castle Combe in a Worcester color. The floors were covered with the same material in a Cotswald color. New maple cabinetry in nutmeg with a black glaze and distressing was used for the window seat and the snack bar areas.

Before GUEST BATH DETAILS: For the bathroom, 4-inch by 16-inch Silver Disk marble floor tiles set in a chevron pattern were used. The wall tile consisted of a variety of uniquely shaped glass tiles, including a glass molding wainscoting. The shower was laid in Skyline Verona marble, using 1-inch by 1-inch tiles on the floor, 18inch by 18-inch tiles on the walls, and 12-inch by 12-inch tiles on the ceiling. Chrome Brizo faucets and a vanity from Restoration Hardware finished the space. FINAL RESULT: “I wanted an organic elegance style in the design, through texture and

After color,” the homeowner said. “My favorite part is the wood plank ceiling. Also, the dark brown, distressed flooring idea came from a ski lodge we stayed at in Utah. We liked the warmth and the old-world feel, so we wanted to have that in the guest suite.”
