We washed our hands before supper Commentary by Ward Degler The mother in the checkout lane carefully guided each of her three children to use the hand sanitizer before helping unload the groceries. Something inside me Plain Talk rebelled. It wasn’t like this when I was a kid. The only thing my mother insisted on was that we wash up before supper, after going to the bathroom, and line up for fingernail and behind the ears inspection before going to bed. Other than that, Mom figured whatever dirt we accumulated during the day wouldn’t hurt us as long as it was washed off at the end of the day. My grandfather’s favorite mantra was, “What doesn’t kill you just makes you stronger.” He would know. The man was a woodworker, a metal smith, a grease monkey, a mechanic and a gardener – often all in the same day. And the only time he washed his hands was just before supper. He lived to be 96 and I don’t remember him ever being sick. As kids, we played in the yard rain or shine,

built things from mud, goop, sticks, stones and various unidentified substances. We carried frogs in our pockets, bugs in our hands, and dug graves for dead caterpillars with our fingernails. Then we washed up for supper. Decades later most of us are still healthy. I worry about overprotected kids. The dirt we played in every day was loaded with more germs than a biologist could identify in a lifetime. But we survived, probably because exposure to those grimy things helped us build resistance to the diseases they spawned. I have to wonder if today’s children may be sitting ducks for the first thing they run into without a hand sanitizer. I recently heard someone suggest we wash our hands for as long as it takes to sing the Happy Birthday song three times. I do that every day. But only before supper.

An eye for Google Glass, a look at new technology

By Sophie Pappas • sophie@youarecurrent.com

Record a video, take a picture, send a message and get directions - all hands-free, and just by telling your eyeglasses what to do. Google Glass, the newest innovabusiness tion from Google, is an eyewear system designed to help users function during everyday tasks. Its high-tech ability allows commands to be given by a user’s voice, and requires absolutely no touching or pushing of buttons. And now, it’s available to purchase in Zionsville. Dr. Nicholas Garn, an optometrist with Zionsville Eyecare, is a certified distributor of the Google Glass eyewear. Selected as one of the few doctors in the country to safely administer the new technology, Garn is deemed an “explorer” by Google. “I imagine they gave them to people in different fields, including the vision sciences and eye care industries,” Garn said. Garn said that the staff at Zionsville Eyecare has been trained to fit the frames to people’s faces, and can make prescription lenses for the Google Glass system. He has explored the Google Glass system extensively, but says the technology still has a long way to go. “I tried [the glass] without a prescription and it was not ideal,” Garn said. “But with a prescription the optics seen are much better.” The Google Glass retails for $1,500. This includes one of four frames to choose from, a sunglass mechanism that clips on, and the 15 Google Glass applications.

Dr. Nicholas Garn (Far left) stands with his colleagues at Zionsville Eyecare. (Submitted photo)

“You get the basic hardware for $1,500,” Garn said. “And then you bring that into our office and we can fit you with prescription lenses, all of which are $225.” Garn said that the system is perfect for people who are interesting in experimenting with something new. “It’s still very much in the dream phase,” he said. “But there is something for everyone with the Google Glass.” For videos and more information about how Google Glass works, visit www.currentzionsville.com.

What happened? A representative from Barnes and Thornburg spoke to the board of trustees about the approval from the Zionsville Town Council for the land swap between the town and the schools. What it means: The town and the schools are exchanging pieces of land to serve needs of the Zionsville Parks Dept. new businesses and the schools.

What’s next: Property taxes will likely decrease because of the land swaps.

What happened? The board of trustees approved the petition to put $340,000 towards masonry work needed on school buildings. The board chose the second lowest bidder. The second low bid was $15,000 more than the lowest bid. What it means: The school system wants to hire a masonry company that is not the lowest bidder to make necessary repairs. They agreed that the lowest bidder, a company whose name is being withheld from the public, does not provide adequate masonry work.

What’s next: The masonry company will soon begin its repairs.

What happened? The petition to advertise a request for proposal for a bond underwriter was approved by the board in a vote of 5-0. What it means: ZCS is soliciting proposals for bond underwriting services. The underwriter will support the school corporation in the sales of bonds for the refinancing of existing bonds now outstanding.

What’s next: Responses from the advertisements are due mid-April. All questions should be directed to ZCS Chief Financial Officer Michael Shafer. The board will discuss the matter at the May board of trustees meeting.

Ray Cortopassi takes the bids to help raise money for the HFH fundraising night. (Submitted photos)

More than 200 support Habitat news@currentzionsville.com

Protect what matters most Shepherd can help you make the right decisions for your life.

More than 225 supporters attended Habitat for Humanity of Boone County’s annual fundraiser Saturday night at Philanthopy the Golf Club of Indiana. Steve Furste, the Executive Director of HHBC, said the fundraiser generated enough money to build a home in 2014 for a Boone County family in need. Ray Cortopassi, a television anchor for Fox 59 and a Zionsville resident, served as the emcee. Cortopassi conducted a live auction where guests bid on each component of a home - land, foundation, plumbing, windows, electrical, doors. The entire home was funded in less than an hour. “Ray did a great job of creating excitement for everyone so we not only made our goal, we surpassed it,” Furste said. HHBC built two homes in Boone County in 2013, one in Lebanon and one in Thorntown. In 2014, Furste said HHBC plans to build three homes in Boone County. HHBC will kick off the 2014 building season in April with the first ever all women’s build on Lafayette Street in Lebanon. Under the supervision of Keith Teverbaugh, HHBC’s Construction Superintendent, twenty teams of fifteen women will build the house from the ground up. The house will benefit Phyllis McKinney and her great granddaughter, Bailey. McKinney and Bailey currently live in a converted barn near Thorntown. In addition to building the home for McKinney, the teams of women are raising all of the funds necessary to completely finance the build for McKinney. At the fundraiser, HHBC also named Brandt Lawson as 2013 Habitat for Humanity of Boone County volunteer of the year. “We’re blessed to have Brandt as part of our team,” said Furste. “It was a wonderful evening,” said Alan Townsend, President of the Board of Directors of HHBC.

Amber Welch, a 2013 HFH homeowner, sits with Paige, a 2014 HFH homeowner.

Phyllis and her great granddaughter, Bailey, will be the first owners with a 2014 built home. Their house will be part of the all women building initiative.

“We’re overwhelmed by the support we’ve received from the Boone County community. With the support of our donors and so many hard working volunteers, HHBC built two beautiful, affordable homes in 2013, and we’re committed to doing even more in 2014,” Townsend said.

Runners cross the finish line at last year’s Z’Run. (Submitted photo)

Z’Run coming next month

news@currentzionsville.com

The 12th annual Z’Run will take place at 9 a.m. April 26. Z’Run is a community-based 5K and 1-mile family walk that Philanthopy attracts participants from Zionsville and surrounding areas. Z’Run had over 700 participants last year including members of the local elementary schools’ running clubs, which help endorse Z’Run’s message of youth exploring good, lifelong fitness habits. Z’Run raises funds to support the many Zionsville Middle School PTO-sponsored programs throughout the year. At the same time, it’s a message to parent and students about the importance of exercise and fitness. Z’Run runners and walkers are encouraged to participate as family, including the family dog.

It’s the mission of the Z’Run committee members to make this a community event. With that in mind, it is sponsored by Zionsville businesses and organizations who share the message of exploring good, lifelong fitness habits. Three different levels of sponsorships are still available. They include publicizing the business or organization on the back of the race t-shirt designed by Zionsville Middle School art students. Sponsors are also encouraged to distribute promotional materials, coupons, and giveaways to participants during the event. The event is managed by a local Zionsville business, Tuxedo Brothers. To register for the run, visit www.tuxbro.com. For more information about Z’Run, contact Wellness Coordinator Erin Wilson at 270-2125 or ewilson@valueaddedres.com.

Former Colt reports theft at L.A. Fitness news@currentzionsville.com There is a thief somewhere in central Indiana who should be very nervous at the moment. That’s because the car the thief crime decided to steal from belonged to a former Colts defensive tackle. Currently a free agent, defensive tackle Eric Foster reported that someone stole a brown leather laptop bag from his vehicle while he was inside of the L.A. Fitness on Michigan Road in Carmel, according to a new release. Inside the bag was an Apple MacBook laptop, a check book and a 2009 AFC Championship Ring, police said.

The victim is offering a $1,000 reward for the recovery of the ring, police said. At L.A. Fitness, at Michigan Road and 106th Street in Carmel, gym members have reported that personal items such as cash, wallets, iPhones and jewelry have been stolen in recent weeks from the men’s locker room. L.A. Fitness has been trying to combat a rash of thefts in the past three months Operations Manager Chris Brady said these issues could have been prevented if people had taken precautions. “Over 90 percent of these problems can be avoided,” Brady said. “It’s about common sense.”

The barns of Pittman Farms await their destruction. The 62-acre land plot will soon be home to apartments and retailers. (Photo by Theresa Skutt.)

What will happen with the Pittman Farms property? By Sophie Pappas • sophie@youarecurrent.com The rising sun hits the big, red barn at exactly 7:04 a.m. in a way that makes passersby slow down for a brief moment to take in the beauty. The speed limit is 45 mph, but coming cover story up to the corner of Sycamore and Michigan Road, cars wind down to a pace of 25 mph. It’s just that breathtaking. The Pittman Farms property is a 62-acre parcel that was rezoned last August when the Zionsville Town Council approved the space for a planned unit development, otherwise known as a PUD. The PUD has allowed co-owner of the property, Steve Pittman, of Pittman Partners LLC, to move forward with a multi-use development facility. However, according to Pittman, things are going slowly. “We are being very, very careful,” Pittman said. “We’re very comfortable at the pace we are going and measuring everything four or five times.” Pittman said he has received nothing but positive feedback from members of the community in regards to building up the multi-use area. He said that plans include having small retail stores, office spaces and residential spaces. “Our plan is to own everything that goes in,” he said. “We want that control. We will lease spaces but we are not selling the land.” Big-box retails will not be allowed into the site, as the largest store Pittman can accommodate is 65,000 square-feet. This will eliminate much of the fear Zionsville residents may have over larger retailers bombarding downtown. “People really want to have a place to bike or walk,” Pittman said. “And people are ready for a change on that corner.” Big Old Barn Removal of the barn that sits on the property is causing some anxiety amongst people who call the corner “the gateway into Zionsville.” Megan Covert is a Zionsville resident, whose family has lived here for decades. “I love this town but it’s so sad that no one wants to preserve history and our roots,” she said. Pittman believes that development will only help, and not harm any of the Zionsville charm or land value. “What I have heard is that [developing] this land has actually helped the resale value of homes nearby,” Pittman said. “And we aren’t opposed to repurposing the barn wood. We are open to letting someone else use that, or we have also thought of using it in the multi-family areas.” Pittman said that the site will continue to be a positive entryway into the Village of Zionsville, with or without the red barn. “Our hope is for an interconnectivity, from the Main Street to The Farm,” Pittman said. For others, this idea breaks the rural imagery of Zionsville as a quaint, horse-loving town.

What will be at the farm? • Specialty grocery store. Whole Foods is one company being talked about. • Residential condos or apartments • Office spaces for lease • Sidewalks and a pedestrian crosswalk, to bridge the gap between Zionsville’s downtown and The Farm • Park benches • Microbrewery and/or restaurant

Your take:

Current in Zionsville asked residents and business owners: What do you think about tearing down the Pittman Farms barn on the corner of Sycamore and Michigan Road to make room for proposed development?

“I think it is awful. Zionsville isn’t what it used to be. My Dad has lived here since he was a kid, and I was raised here and now I’m raising my own family here. It breaks my heart to see such a beautiful little town go so commercial. All they want is money. It has become so busy and over-populated it’s starting to take on a resemblance of Carmel. Keep it small, loving and quaint. Embrace our small-townness and low crime rate. Stay beautiful, Zionsville.” Megan Covert, Zionsville resident

“Zionsville is getting too big. I say no.” - Christina Farmer, Zionsville resident

“I’m not sure why people are so opposed to Zionsville growing. It’s not possible to remain the same size it always has been. Not sure about tearing down the farm, though. I feel like the stores on Main Street have had a hard enough time staying in business. Zionsville needs to continue to grow, though, to compete with surrounding areas for residents and businesses.” - Kate Ruddell, small business co-owner and former Zionsville resident “I think it would be wonderful if the barn could be incorporated into the new shopping vision. Things change, but history should be maintained when it is possible and this is one of those times.” - Joetta Wahl, Zionsville resident

“It’s just a barn. Burn it down.” Russell Clark, Zionsville resident

NJS Studio celebrates 20 year anniversary

By Zach Manges • news@currentzionsville.com Zionsville’s own NJS Studio is celebrating its 20th anniversary this year. The studio has undergone a business unique journey over the past two decades. After deciding college was not the right road for her, owner Nadine Anderson took up work at nail school and

discovered a love for the industry. She began with creating Nails by Nadine but within a few years expanded the business into a full-on spa and salon under the NJS Studio title. “It’s kind of unusual,” Anderson said. “Most salons start with hair care and then add on nails and spa, so it’s helped us to have a strong base in spa treatment.” Anderson grew up in Zionsville and has come

to see many of her clients as good friends. An environment of warmth and community has given the business what Anderson calls her special touch. As she tells it, this has come from a critical balance of business and family. “You can have the business but if you don’t have great people then it doesn’t work,” Anderson said. “My husband and my parents have been so supportive. My mom does behind the scenes bookkeeping and my dad does outdoor gardening and snow shoveling. It’s definitely a

family-based business, and it takes all of us to make it work.” A common compliment for NJS Studio from clients is that it feels “just like home.” Anderson attests that the business is just as likely to build friendships between those who visit, as it is to provide quality services. “We have wonderful clients, a great staff, and family support in making it all happen,” Anderson said. “We’re grateful to serve such a great community.”

Chances are, theft is on you

The question put to us was this: How many gym members have to lose possessions to theft before something is done? This concerns repeated lifting of personal items at L.A. Fitness on Michigan Road. Many are wondering what the gym and police are going to do for L.A. Fitness’ patrons? The answer, we hope: Nothing. Anyone that frequents a “big-box” fitness facility should know well enough to (a) lock his or her vehicle and (b) bring a padlock for the locker the gym provides each member. Not to insult anyone’s intelligence here, but it’s really that simple; if you don’t want to be a theft victim, lock up your possessions. This is about common sense, people. No one is going to change the behavior of certain miscreants, but protection against them is activated easily enough. Or, exercise enthusiasts could continue to tempt fate by leaving in plain view items of value in unlocked lockers or vehicles. ••• You might recall from previous tomes that we place a premium on research, and so it was with great interest that we read last week’s Wall Street Journal/NBC poll results. They pointed out that the overall electoral milieu for Democrats is worse than it was in 2010, when the Republicans had their best midterm performance since Harry S. Truman was president. President Barack Obama’s jobapproval rating is at an all-time low of 41 percent. While Western Europe is at risk, among other crisis issues, Obama was playing golf. Of course he was. One other point: The poll respondents were divided on Obamacare, with 49 percent saying (as we have) that it’s a bad idea, and 39 percent saying it was a good idea. The bottom line here: The Republicans will find a way to screw up the advantage. Bank on it. Brian Kelly, publisher, and Steve Greenberg, general manager, are co-owners of Current Publishing, LLC.

Thank you, Zionsville

An emotional rescue

Commentary by Terry Anker

As the discussion about public transportation continues in our fair communities, we are encouraged to think about our own habits and how we might make individual use of such amenities were they to become available. Would we ride busses? Would we ride trains? Would we ride monorails or planes? Kidding aside, the idea of having someone else do the driving can be very appealing. In some places around this planet, our fellow humans move collectively about quickly, affordably and in high comfort. Yet for reasons that we don’t fully understand, our desire to be entirely independent and unrestricted stymies our support for what, in many ways, would be a superior approach to personal locomotion. For many, air travel is the form of mass-transit most prevalent – there is little or no other service that corresponds with our homes or offices. It is an amazing feat that one can be transported in a few hours from one place to another safely and with minimal effort. Still, it

requires that we get out of our individual automobiles and share our space with strangers. And for many, this is a challenge – the release of control can be surprisingly emotional. But why is it so difficult? Most of us don’t know how to fly a jumbo jet and reason proves that the risk of peril in driving ourselves across country is far greater to our life and limb. Long lines, fights for overhead bin space, and cancelled flights are often blamed. But empirically compared to the alternatives, is our rational decision-making clouded an overwhelming desire to maintain perceived control? So how does a reasonable thinker seek balance in the discourse? Can we find our way to release some control to gain many other advantages? And even if we can, will we? Is there an emotional rescue?

If you are lucky enough to find a way of life you love, you have to find the courage to live it.

Last week, we highlighted the 20 Girl Scout troopers in their effort to send at least two World War II veterans to Washington D.C. as part of the Indy Honor Flight program. Because of the generous people in Zionsville, the troop raised more than $400 in one day at Akard True Value Hardware. Now the girls are raising so much money, they may be able to send four veterans on the one-day excursion. What a blessing it will be for our veterans to visit the remains of their friends lost in the war, and the memorial dedicated to their hard work and sacrifice. Thank you, Zionsville, for showing support to the Girl Scouts and our veterans. ••• Several weeks ago, I wrote a story about the plight of Le Dolce Vita cafe. The bakery once sat on a busy corner of Main Street, but went out of business at the beginning of the year, leaving owner Kelly Evans with outstanding bills and no funds to pay her employees their final paychecks. I received an enormous amount of feedback from this story. Some of it was positive; some of it was not. One person said I am a WalMart supporter out to ruin small businesses. Another called me an evil gossip columnist. Neither could be farther from the truth. I am a humanitarian who wanted to help minimum wage workers get their due earnings. Also, I would like to note that within two days after our story was released, the unpaid employees received their final paychecks from Evans. So in the end, that story served its purpose. Most surprising to me were the emails and phone calls from the kindhearted Zionsville folk who offered to donate money to the unpaid LDV employees. Someone even offered to hold a fundraiser to help Evans pay her bills. The fundraiser never came to fruition. But how amazing is it that people in Zionsville were willing to step out and help a hardworking businesswoman bow out of her business with grace? People who offer their time and money like that are what make this town so special. Thank you to the people in Zionsville who support small businesses, local charities and Current in Zionsville. I appreciate you. Sophie Pappas is the managing editor of Current in Zionsville. You may e-mail her at sophie@ youarecurrent.com

Patty or Paddy? Last week, Current in Zionsville ran an article titled “St.Patty’s Day.” After much thought, we chose to run the word “Patty” instead of “Paddy,” in no way trying to offend people of Irish decent. As editor this is what I based the decision on: Paddy is derived from the Gaelic name Padraig. Patty is derived from the English name Patrick. Associated Press Style warrants both uses.

Katniss Everdeen? Not yet

Commentary by Danielle Wilson

It’s time for my quarterly New Year’s Resolutions check-in, people, where I evaluate my progress towards fulfilling my humor goals for 2014. You may recall I am attempting to become HungerGames worthy. I want to achieve ripped arms and crock-pot expertise, in addition to learning how to hunt, shoot and power whistle. Unfortunately, I’m not progressing as quickly as I’d hoped. For instance, every time I practice obnoxious catcalling, I nearly pass out. This does not play well while I’m navigating the construction on 31 in my minivan. So I’ve had to limit my sessions to those rare moments when I am not driving to dance, tumbling, soccer, track, tae kwon do, jazz band or volleyball. Given that whistling lies on one of the lowest rungs of my daily to-do ladder (somewhere between scrubbing toilets and shop-vacing air vents), I’d estimate I devote about thirty seconds every three weeks to mastering this annoyingly-difficult trick. Cooking my way through “Crock-Pots & You” has also proved challenging. For one thing, most of the dishes take only four hours. If I throw all the ingredients in before I leave for work in the morning, by five o’clock that evening, the meal though savory - is essentially mush. This is fine if I’m trying for soup, but not so good if I want a Parmesan Crusted Chicken. Nevertheless, as my

commitment to cutting Box Tops approaches fullon addiction (I love finding them on every highsodium, preservative-laden box of food I serve), I’ve decided to keep the crock-potting. Next up, Meatball Madness! Hunting is on hold until the fall when it becomes legal again to fire weapons at deer. So technically I’m still on course to meet that goal. I’d like to say the same for the handgun, but my only excuse for not learning to shoot is pure laziness. I’ve located a range that offers classes, and I’ve even convinced my mother-in-law to come along for the ride, but I have yet to . . . well . . . pull the trigger. Damn, I’m funny! (Cussing less is not one of my promises.) As for doing 20 “real” push-ups, I’m feeling confident. In fact, I could probably drop and give you eleven right now if I weren’t so light-headed from some recent whistling practice. With warm weather approaching, however, I’m highly motivated to meet this declaration. At least more motivated than I am to slow-cook Knockwurst Surprise. Hope your New Year’s resolutions are going better than mine are! Peace out.

Dressing for success

Commentary by Dick Wolfsie

I’m always disappointed with salad dressing. It’s either too thin or too thick. Some are too vinegary, some are too oily. I must humor have 25 opened bottles in the fridge. And another 20 unopened in the cupboard. In restaurants, I always ask for the dressing on the side, and I request two or three different kinds. Maybe if I combine the lite honey mustard with the raspberry vinaigrette? How about half French and half Thousand Island? Yuck. Nothing works. My sister, Linda, who lives in New York, is an awesome cook and whenever we visit and she prepares a meal, the salad is tossed with the most delicious dressing imaginable. Okay, maybe it’s my imagination, but for 35 years she has avoided telling me how she makes it. I’ll say during dinner, “Linda, you really have to give me the recipe…” “Sure, remind me before you leave,” Linda says. Then, as we are leaving, she often conveniently brings up things like pressing health issues in the family, stuff I really don’t want to talk about. The whole thing is very suspicious. Maybe the recipe is a family secret. Wait a second: it’s my family, too. Recently my wife asked me for the 1,000th time: “Aren’t you going to eat your salad?” That was it. I called my sister and told her I

wanted to know what was in her special creation and I wanted to know now. “Look, Dick. The reason I never gave you the recipe is that I really have no idea what the exact proportion of ingredients is.” “How could that be, Linda? It has tasted exactly the same every year since 1976 when I first tasted it at your wedding reception.” “I know. It really keeps. I probably made way too much.” “Seriously, Linda, nothing lasts 35 years.” “It actually lasted 25.” “I’m not talking about your marriage. I’m talking about the salad dressing.” I pressed her again for details. Finally, after further cajoling, I received this email: LINDA’S SALAD DRESSING • 2 T sugar (NOT artificial sweetener) • 2 T ketchup (NOT chili sauce) • 1 T Durkee Famous Sauce (Do NOT substitute) • 3 T apple cider vinegar (NOT red wine vinegar) • 1/2 cup of vegetable or canola oil (NOT olive oil) Put in blender (Do NOT whisk)

THIS WEEK A Western opera? – That’s what attendees will witness when “The Girl of the Golden West” hits the stage at Clowes MemoCARMEL rial Hall this week. The story centers on a handsome outlaw in disguise, the sheriff in hot pursuit, and a garter-snapping, pistol-packing, poker-playing heroine who will do anything to save the man she loves. The American West fascinated the opera’s composer, Giacomo Puccini, and California’s Gold Rush was the perfect setting for one of his most memorable leading ladies. If you love Butterfly and Tosca, then you’ll love Minnie, too. “The Girl of the Golden West” is at Clowes Memorial Hall, Butler University in Indianapolis at 8 p.m. March 21 and 2 p.m. March 23. Tickets start at $35. For more information, call 283-3470 or visit www.indyopera.org.

Joe Cashore fills his shows with a variety of stories, each told using different hand-made marionettes. (Submitted photos)

Marionette master brings magic to stage

By Pete Smith • pete@youarecurrent.com

Since the theatres of the Center for Performing Arts first opened to the public, a wide variety of shows and performTheatre ers have wowed audiences. But audiences are in for a rare treat the weekend of March 22 when artist Joe Cashore brings his marionette show to the Tarkington stage. Cashore has dedicated most of his career to perfecting the ancient artform, even building his own creations and manipulating them with a system only he knows how to use – all in the hope of giving an audience a taste of real magic. It wasn’t without reason that Disney chose the story of Pinocchio, the puppet who wanted to become a real boy, when it wanted to create some movie magic in one of its earliest animated movies. But in an age of digital visual effects, it’s easy to forget what made things magical in the first place. But watching an inanimate object suddenly spring to life with perfect human movements can certainly have that effect. Cashore’s performances feature a series of short pieces, each with its own theme. “Some of them are serious, some are humorous, some are emotionally challenging,” he said. The full-length performance on March 22 is recommended for adults and children older than eight; the matinee the following day contains pieces that were performed the day before, but the show is shorter and suitable for adults and children six and older.

That’s because there’s very little dialogue during the performance, and music is necessary to convey the mood and emotions – but it also requires a quiet audience to make the illusion real. “Sometimes it takes a long time to find the right music,” Cashore said. He often uses classical music in his performances, but he also has built pieces around an existing work of music or even commissioned compositions to match a particular idea for a show. Cashore said the combination of the music and the expressiveness of his marionettes has a unique quality. His favorite compliment that he ever received was: “A guy came up after a show and said, ‘You know, looking at this opened a part of my brain

that I didn’t know I had.’” Cashore’s stories are all based on his observations of people. He begins by story-boarding an idea, and then he eliminates everything that doesn’t express the point of the piece. No movement is wasted. “If you keep it focused, it’s more powerful,” he said. Cashore has also built more than 150 marionettes, but he only works with his 15 best. He studied fine arts in school, worked for a while as a painter and carpenter, and then decided to pursue performance art as a fulltime career in the 1980s. So it wasn’t a technical ability he had to master, it was more that he had to overcome a sense of shyness. “It was hard to step out on stage at first. I felt like I was hiding behind the marionettes,” he said. “But I’ve done it so much it’s no longer a problem.” And his shows that focus on the richness of life and its possibilities have taken him to every state except the Dakotas, and all over Canada, Europe and Asia. But this performance will be his first in Carmel, and he hopes people will take the opportunity to come watch something different. “The show is fun,” he said. “People will enjoy it. They really will.” Cashore Marionettes • “Life in Motion” at 7 p.m. March 22 • “Simple Gifts” at 3 p.m. March 23 • The Tarkington Theatre at the Center for the Performing Arts in Carmel • Tickets start at $15 • For more information visit www.cashoremarionettes.com

Singer David Phelps to play classics By Sophie Pappas • sophie@youarecurrent.com

New: student tickets are now $5.00 for any seat.

Covering everything from Dolly Parton to Luciano Pavarotti, singer David Phelps is bringing his soulful tune to the Zionsville music Performing Arts Center on March 20. Hailing from Texas, Phelps studied classical music at Baylor University and now calls a farm in Nashville, Tenn., home. “My style is very eclectic,” Phelps said. “I’m a little hard to pin down.” Phelps said he doesn’t put his music under one genre, because he loves to sing Gospel, country, adult contemporary, and classical. He is currently on tour promoting his latest album, Classic, released in 2012. “Everything in the show is family oriented,” Phelps said. Celebrated as the tenor in the Grammy-awardwinning Gaither Vocal Band, Phelps said he is most well-known for his unique vocal style and ability to sing in high tessitura for a long time. Phelps’ Classic album allowed him the opportunity to work on his first solo project with close friend and mentor, Bill Gaither. The song selection for the album took more than a year, and brought Phelps immense joy. “It was a great confidence builder that Bill put so much trust in me,” Phelps said. With the accompaniment provided by a full band and background vocalists, the Classic in

IWS to feature folksongs By Chris Bavender • editorial@youarecurrent.com The music of composer Percy Granger will be featured as the Indiana Wind Symphony takes center stage with guest tenor Ken music Knowles on March 22 for “Folksong Fantasia.” “Usually the way I plan a concert is I decide on a couple of big works we want to do and then I think, OK, is there any connection that we can form a theme,” said symphony conductor Charles Conrad. “In this case, with the songs form the Catskills, there is based on folk songs. We’ve not done a concert with that theme.” That led Conrad to immediately contact Knowles. “Right away I wanted to get him involved because he is such a terrific singer of folk songs,” Conrad said. “He is such a Carmel fixture and has sung with us maybe a dozen times.” And the concert will feature an interesting twist – playing old recordings Granger compiled of folk singers when he put together a piece called “A Lincolnshire Posy.” “A lot of his music came from that treasure trove, and we have those songs and before we play the six we will play a bit of that (recordings) to give people an idea of the flavor of what it sounded like to Granger,” Conrad said. “I hope it will be exciting. It will be a little odd sounding because of the age of the technology but it will be interesting to hear the old recordings but

also show off Percy Granger’s genius in coming up with all of these interesting textures - some simple and some extremely complex.” It’s an evening Conrad hopes audience members will remember for some time. “There is this kind of beauty and simplicity of folk music that even though it is relatively simple when you put it together from a musical standpoint it has great emotions and human truths that are all intertwined,” Conrad said. The Indiana Wind Symphony presents “Folksong Fantasia” • 7:30 p.m. March 22 • The Palladium in Carmel • Tickets start at $5 • For more information call 843-3800 or visit www. thecenterfortheperformingarts.org

DESIGN BUILD LANDSCAPES

Some of you may have experienced cupping treatments either by me or other local practitioners in the past. Of all the fitness important techniques used in traditional Chinese medicine, only acupuncture and herbs have gained widespread popularity in the United States. However, cupping also has been used effectively for many centuries in both the Orient and Europe. I use various cupping methods extensively to treat many illnesses ranging from musculoskeletal problems to internal organ diseases and depression. For the healthy individual, cupping not only provides greater vitality and strength, but also prevents illness. Cupping involves placing a cup or many cups on the patient’s skin. A vacuum is created by igniting a small amount of methanol alcohol in the cups and then quickly applying them to the skin. This vacuum causes the skin under the cups to rise, which causes skin pore to expand and discharge accumulated toxins and waste products from under the skin. The most essential benefit of cupping lies in its ability to improve blood circulation and immune system. Although the exact mechanism is not known, cupping is thought to improve either local or general circulation by further braking down already partially damaged blood cells. This increased fragmentation of red and white blood cells stimulates the spleen(the bloodstream’s filter) to clear the old blood cells much faster, which in turn stimulates new red and white blood cell production by the bone marrow. New red blood cells carry more oxygen and nutrients to every tissue and organ and boost a person’s vitality and immune system. Experienced practitioners of cupping therapy have discovered a variety of additional benefits. Application of cups usually creates short-term bruises. To the practiced eye this discoloration can be a valuable diagnostic clue. A skilled practitioner applying cups along the energy meridians can recognize certain internal organ problems that may reside a considerable distance from the bruise. In general there are two cupping techniques used today: wet and dry cupping. Wet cupping

Dr. Park practices cupping on a patient. (Submitted photo)

involves superficially puncturing an area of skin with a lancet device before applying the cups. A burning wick is placed over the punctured area and a glass cup is quickly applied over the wick to create a vacuum. The treatment reduces inflammation and removes congested or stagnant blood. The treated area then fills with fresh new blood, improving the flow of oxygen and relieving the pain. I use wet cupping to treat many musculoskeletal conditions including low back pain, arthritis, tendinitis, bursitis, and all kinds of sports related injuries. Dry cupping, on the other hand, does not involve puncturing the skin before applying the cups. Dry cupping, when used regularly, is one of the best ways to improve general blood circulation and immune system. Dry cupping is used to treat not only musculoskeletal conditions but also many chronic problems including hypertention, diabetes, headache, peripheral neuropathies, digestive disorders, and skin diseases. In summary, cupping works on the principle of cleansing. Cleansing improves circulation, which is essential to good health.

Compression socks a tool for athletes Commentary by Dr. Jeffery Schoonover If you watched races or triathlons recently, you may have noticed many athletes wearing knee high compression socks fitness or calf sleeves. To understand why even amateur athletes are wearing these socks and sleeves, it’s helpful to review the circulatory system. Blood circulates through our bodies via a network of vein and arteries. It is a closed system so that blood pumped from the heart to the legs must be moved back up through the system to the heart. The calf muscle pumps venous blood against the force of gravity when we are walking or running. It’s well known that medical grade compression stockings improve blood flow by helping the calf muscle pump more effectively, which helps keep blood from pooling in the legs. These stockings have been used for years with patients after surgery, to treat leg swelling and for varicose and spider veins. Now, there is growing evidence that athletic compression stockings may reduce soreness after a race. Post-event muscle pain can occur for several reasons: lactic acid build-up, microtrauma at the muscle fiber level, electrolyte

depletion and a release of prostaglandins (inflammatory chemicals released during and after exercise). Compression is believed to reduce the muscle pain because the micro-trauma can be lessened and the calf muscle pump increased, which clears out lactic acid and prostaglandins more effectively. What is less clear is the benefit of wearing them during a race. There are no definitive studies that show the benefit of use during the event. We do advise athletes with varicose vein disease to wear compression stockings during events to increase the calf muscle pump function while reducing ankle swelling and venous pooling. For athletes without varicose vein disease, there may be a benefit to wearing athletic compression stockings after an event to help with recovery.

The top five IRA mistakes you should avoid Commentary by Adam Cmejla The Individual Retirement Account is the Titanic of most peoples’ retirement plan — it typically tends to be their biggest asset finance at retirement. But there are a number of issues that can occur that are not advantageous to investors if proper planning and monitoring are not done. Let’s highlight five areas where we’ve seen mistakes occur: Not taking your required minimum distribution The IRS requires you to start taking out a portion of your IRA each year after you turn 70.5, even if you don’t need the money. During the year in which you turn 70.5, you have up until April 15th of the following year to make that distribution, but keep in mind that you will have to make two distributions that year: the one for the year in which you turned 70.5, and then another one before year’s end for that calendar year. If you forget, the penalty is pretty steep: the IRS will assess a 50 percent penalty on required distributions that were not taken. Incorrect beneficiaries Many people think that because they have a will in place that they do not need to name beneficiaries on their IRA’s. However, it’s important to remember that any beneficiary information that is on file with your IRA custodian will supersede any bequests you have listed in your will.

This is especially important if you’ve had a death or change in marital status due to a divorce. Make sure all of your IRA accounts reflect your final wishes, including any charitable giving you want to make. A good estate attorney will help you direct how to properly title your retirement accounts to reflect your estate wishes. Not knowing how to ‘stretch’ an IRA Unless you are the spouse of someone that’s passed away, the IRS will require you to make required minimum distributions from an IRA that you’ve inherited. Depending on the age of the person when they passed away, you may be able to “stretch” those distributions over your lifetime, thus potentially preserving significantly longer the value of the assets in the account. Forgetting about after-tax dollars in an IRA If you’ve made non-deductible contributions to an IRA in the past and therefore have basis in the account, it is important to track that basis. This is done by filing Form 8606 with your tax returns. Failing to file this form means the IRS views 100 percent of your IRA as deductible contributions, thus 100 percent of your distributions

will be taxable. This, in its essence, is double taxation. Improper Roth conversions or recharacterizations of Roth IRAs If you’ve converted Traditional IRAs to Roth IRAs and it is deemed a “failed conversion,” the IRS generally views the failed conversion as a total distribution from the Traditional IRA, thus causing a taxable event in the year it was performed. Obviously this can have some major tax implications given the changes in the tax code. If you’ve properly converted a Roth IRA, need to “recharacterize” that conversion (for any number of reasons that won’t be discussed here), and that recharacterization is done improperly, you could also open yourself up to adverse tax consequences.

Have airline fees gone too far? – Some hidden fees to watch for: Checking in early when your hotel room is ready can cost up to $50. Buying a ticket on a few airlines’ websites can carry an “electronic reservation” fee of at least $10. Putting a small pet under an airline seat can cost $250 round trip. Checking an oversize, overweight suitcase is as much as $800 round trip. On May 1, Allegiant – an airline that utilizes flights from under-served airports to destinations like Las Vegas or Florida – will start charging $5 to print a boarding pass at the airport, and it charges a $10 electronic-reservation fee per flight segment and at least $10 for carry-on bags that go in the overhead bin.

Lisbon’s Monument to Discovery (Photo by Don Knebel)

Lisbon and the age of exploration Commentary by Don Knebel

Lisbon and San Francisco lie at almost identical latitudes on the west coasts of their respective continents. Both occupy seven hills and maintain picturesque old travel streetcars. Both span their bays with orange suspension bridges, designed by the same engineer. And both are wonderful places to visit. However, Lisbon has one attraction its twin city can never match – a monument honoring the life and times of Henry the Navigator, a Portuguese prince who rearranged the world, and not always for the better. Henry the Navigator, the third son of Portuguese King John I, dreamed of gaining new converts to Christianity in lands unexplored by Europeans. Beginning in 1415 he planned and financed expeditions from Lisbon that sailed further and further down the western coast of Africa. By 1444, ships under Henry’s direction, reached what is now Mauritania and began carrying slaves back to Lisbon for conversion and sale. According to Henry’s biographer, Sir Peter Russell, “In Henryspeak, conversion and enslavement were interchangeable terms.” For the next 40 years, Portuguese explorers, sailing caravels whose design Henry had commis-

sioned, reached, on average, one degree further south each year, claiming lands for Portugal and bringing back more slaves. Bartolomeu Dias finally rounded the Cape of Good Hope in 1488, proving the feasibility of a sea route to Asia. When Vasco da Gama reached India from Lisbon in 1498, trade with India began replacing the slave trade as the mainstay of the Portuguese economy. Pedro Álvares Cabral, detouring west on his way to India, bumped into what is now Brazil in 1500, claiming it for Portugal. In 1522, an expedition led by Ferdinand Magellan of Portugal sailed west on behalf of Spain and circled the globe. In 1960, 500 years after Henry the Navigator’s death, Portugal’s Salazar regime erected Padrão dos Descobrimentos (Standard of Discovery) near where expeditions had left Lisbon for parts then unknown. The 171-feet-high monument evokes a caravel, with Henry, who rarely left port, standing tall on the bow. Lined up behind him are two ramps of people important to Portugal’s 100 year long Age of Exploration. No slaves are among them.

Question: “Hi Jordan, Can you comment on “off of?� [As in] “I jumped off of the rock.� This is another favorite phrase.� (From Caroline Rosewell) grammar guy Answer: Caroline: Happy to comment, and I appreciate the jumping off point. The “off of� construction is at best anachronistic, and at worst redundant. We’ll look at why below. To begin, both “off� and “of� are prepositions. Their meanings overlap when they are used to indicate the object of an action – as they are in the example sentence, “I jumped off of the rock.� They do not function equally in that role, however. Consider them individually: “I jumped off the rock.� “I jumped of the rock.� The former makes sense – the latter does not. You could argue, I suppose, that “off� functions as an adverb modifying the prepositional phrase “of the rock� – which is itself functioning as an adverbial phrase modifying “jumped� – but that seems to me to be the grammatical equivalent of taking a plane to Chicago so that you can catch a bus to Denver. Just take the plane straight there. What I think is actually happening here is that “off of� is being substituted where “from� should go, i.e. “I jumped from the rock.� The preposition

“from� is used specifically to indicate the starting point of a physical movement, and is probably the best choice in this scenario, with “off� being an acceptable second option and “off of� not even qualifying. In conclusion, when you feel an “off of� about to slip out of your mouth, just stop at “off.� Even better, consider using “from.� And if, for whatever reason, you find a better deal flying to Chicago and then taking a bus – by all means, go for it. Who am I to stand in the way of saving a buck?

A basement designed for entertaining family, friends

Commentary by Larry Greene

EXISTING BASEMENT: After cleaning up the aftermath of their flooded walkout basement, the owners of this Zionsville blueprint for home knew it was time improvement to transform their dated basement into a space worthy of entertaining friends and family. Making the space more functional was the main goal of the project. “There was a wall separating the kitchen and media room,” said the homeowner. “Removing the wall allowed for a much better flow to host our guests.” KITCHEN DETAILS: New semi-custom maple cabinets with a Java finish were installed giving the kitchen the contemporary look the homeowners were looking for. The Venetian Gold granite countertops and glass tile backsplash polished off the look of the space. Incorporating stainless steel appliances, under-cabinet LED lighting and a craft beer tap created the perfect ambiance to host guests. GUEST BATHROOM: The contemporary look was carried through into the details of the guest bathroom. The original flimsy shower unit received a major facelift with a tasteful blend of various vibrant tiles. Ivory tumbled stone tile was installed in the niche and on floor of the shower. The Venetian Gold granite used on the shower seat, niche shelf and door sill was the perfect match with the “Modern Dimensions” wall tile.

before & after

The accent tile used for the decorative trim and brushed nickel fixtures completed the look of this spa-like retreat. UPGRADED FIREPLACE: Stacked stone and a new wood mantel transformed the fireplace into a warm and cozy gathering spot just off the kitchen and bar.

RESULT: In the end, the contemporary design and improved functionality made a dramatic difference to the space. “The wet bar is my favorite part of the whole basement remodel. We love having our own adult space in a home that is predominately ruled by our children.” There is no doubt that this basement is destined to host great dinner parties for years to come.
