Another thing that can be very important is strength: the ability to handle the load of training.

But strengthening at least a couple times a week can really make a big difference in reducing injury. So there are lots of things you can do to prevent injury. And that goes as far as selecting the right footwear, proper nutrition and even getting enough sleep.
Essentially, the key to avoiding injury is consistency. Try to be consistent with your training and just gradually progress. That can be really helpful.

Community Pet Healthcare here to heal By Zach Manges • email@example.com Has the fluffiest resident of your home caught the sniffles? There’s a new business to cure what ails them at Community Pet now open Healthcare in Whitestown. The veterinary clinic recently celebrated three months of providing service to the community, and is looking forward to the future. At the helm is Dr. Matt Cantrell, who attended Purdue University for his Bachelor of Science in animal sciences and Doctor of Veterinary Medicine, where he received several awards, including recognition for compassionate care and excellence in clinical pathology. “Upon graduation I practiced high-quality medicine at a great small animal hospital in Brownsburg,” Cantrell said. “There I developed a sense for exactly how I wanted to fit into the community and shape my dream, which evolved into Community Pet Healthcare.” That strong connection to the community implied by the title is integral to the clinic’s philosophy. According to Cantrell, comprehensive communication between care provider and patient owner is key in prolonging the lives of pets, and is a major focus for himself and the rest of the staff. “Our emphasis on thorough communication should impress most pet-parents. We are dedicated to taking all the time necessary to explain the importance of what we recommend,” Cantrell said. “Each member of our staff is engaged in providing

the best care possible to pets and their people.” The clinic provides a bounty of services for their patients including micro-chipping, spaying/ neutering, orthopedic exams and many more. Among these offerings, though, the clinic has specific interest in high-quality dentistry and rehabilitation services, which Cantrell describes as physical therapy for pets. “We are especially excited about rehabilitation, because we believe we can help many pets heal from surgeries faster and better,” Cantrell said. “Rehabilitation also has applications for chronic
pain like arthritis and we can even help obese pets lose weight.” Whatever the shape or size of your shaggycoated loved one, the plethora of services and a staff dedicated to involving pet owners in the healing process assures a quality stay for all. “Pet owners will experience a warm, welcoming environment in which we guide them to understand how we recommend taking care of their furry family members,” Cantrell said. “We are committed to the meaning of “Community,” and we are excited to be here.”

Over the hills and through the woods, to the creamery, that is. Nestled along curvy Moore Road in Zionsville stands a tall, refurbished barn, otherwise known as Traders business Point Creamery. Downstairs there is an oldfashioned ice cream parlor that serves up cold treats made with local, organic milk from the creamery’s grass-fed cows. Upstairs, The Loft restaurant prepares 100-percent organic meals, such as quinoa cakes and grass-fed beef burgers with a side of organic wine and fresh cows’ cheese. And for one man, this is all part of his new life. Looking out over the farmlands owned by Jane and Fritz Kuntz, Mike Yaklin, the new Loft manager, looks proud as he describes his move from the desert of San Antonio, Texas to Indiana only two weeks ago. “This is why I came here,” Yaklin said. “I wanted this healthy style of living.” Raised in the restaurant business by his parents, Yaklin said he couldn’t imagine doing anything else but managing restaurants. At 41 years old, he has been in the industry for more than half of his life. “I’ve always put myself in places to challenge myself,” he said. “And with this place, my challenge is getting people passionate about the organic industry.” The director of communications and special events at the creamery, Gail Alden, said that Jane and Fritz were looking for a long time for a manager that could jump into the role of running the restaurant and the catered events. “We needed a maestro for the symphony,” Alden said. “And he’s exactly what we were look-

But we love the Midwest,” he said. “And at Traders Point, everyone has a say in what we serve our customers. There’s this small-town feel, and I’m partial to the organics.” Yaklin said he has managed several organically minded Mexican restaurants, but had never come across something as unique as Traders Point Creamery. “Everything’s fresh,” he said. “I get to sit down with our farmer, who grows all the vegetables right here, and we talk about the menu and what we want to make with the chef.” At almost 11 years old, Traders Point Creamery has the accolade of productivity the first bottled, organic milk in Indiana. “It used to be the best-kept secret,” Yaklin said. “But it’s getting out now. People really do care about what they are putting into their bodies.”

Hope for Ukraine: One woman’s journey to a country in turmoil Commentary by Amy K. Sorrells We took care climbing the crumbling, icecovered stairs toward the doors of the Stalin-era buildings, drab high-rises world view strung out like gray Legos as far as the eye could see. Their cold frames frightened me, walls sagging with the weight of oppression. Dimly lit windows mocked my naivety regarding the depth of cruelty a government can dole out to a land and its people. A Ukrainian nurse trudged forward, carrying a blue folder of welfare information. Another Ukrainian carried a bag of essential groceries, baby formula and diapers. The rest of us, American supporters of Mission to Ukraine (missiontoukraine.org) visiting last January, tagged along behind them. Shadowy figures leaned against corners in the hallways, ends of their cigarettes glowing like the beady eyes of wild animals. They watched as our steps punched through the thick, oily darkness, up seven flights of stairs. We had to use a flashlight to find Alina’s door at the end of one of these halls. The door creaked open to reveal a studio-style kitchen and single bathroom shared by four other families. Alina, single, beautiful, and painfully thin greeted us. She wore her blond hair pulled back, revealing eyes too large and ancient for her age. She showed us her baby, Victoria, a chunky, rosycheeked girl, then Alina broke down and sobbed
Alina holds up her baby. She is just one of the young moms struggling inside the Ukraine.
when we handed her the groceries. We visited many families like Alina’s. And while their situations seemed dismal, the one thing everyone we met in Ukraine had in common was hope: hope for better days; hope that the independence their country had gained in 1991 would bring opportunity; hope that instead of “cattle,”
as some government officials refer to them still, they’d be valued as individuals with dreams and a chance of realizing them. See, for every family like Alina’s, we met bright-eyed, impassioned young adults who’d studied abroad in Europe and America—students who’ve tasted what life is like in countries which empower independence. Students who’ve started landscaping businesses and translating businesses and who love to drink flavored (especially chocolate) coffees in corner shops all across the town. Since late November, however, my Facebook feed is filled with pleas from these, my Ukraine friends, for help. They’ve been crying out in horror at the deaths of dozens of peaceful Maidan supporters. They’ve begged for prayers for safety. Most of all, they’ve pleaded for the West to see them, to notice the corruption and acknowledge the ridiculousness of Russia’s renewed imperialism brought on by an alarmingly apathetic American administration. “Russia’s advances in Ukraine are the greatest threat to European security since the Cold War,” NATO’s chief, Anders Fogh Rasmussen, said last week. Never mind European security. Russia’s advances are an abomination shadowing the emergence of hope in the eyes of people like Alina, too-long oppressed, but who know enough about the liberty of independence not to fight back.

‘Putin dreams of the Cold War’ Views from Ukrainian-American Alex Morozov, as told to Sophie Pappas I have lived in America for more than 20 years. I consider myself a Ukrainian-American. My children are now in world view high school, and they live in what I call the double bubble. They have a bubble because they live in America, and another bubble because they live in Carmel. We have a unique country here and I hope it will always stay that way. My home country is Ukraine. And what you see on the news may be very complicated. But really the issue in Ukraine is very simple: Putin. Russian President Vladimir Putin came to power 15 years ago, after giving his university dissertation on what he called the largest tragedy of our time, the end of the Cold War. Not the first World War or the Holocaust, but the end of the Cold War. This should tell you who he is. In the last 15 years he has used propaganda in Russia and the world. This is very similar to what Hitler did in Nazi Germany beginning in 1934. And Putin has admitted that he is interested in taking over Ukraine for one purpose: to bring back the Soviet Union and weaken the U.S. Unfortunately, we already have a very weak U.S. government and that is what Putin wants. He wants America on its knees. Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) once said that Russia is a big gas station, and this is true. They are focused on exporting oil and gas. Since the Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych was elected in 2010, he has been very pro-Russian, always helping Putin and receiving money from Putin. In 2010, the Ukrainian people were not ready to take to the streets. This year, they were ready after Yanukovych said he would sign documents putting Ukraine in the European Union. Sadly, Putin paid Yanukovych $6 billion to not sign those documents. This was the final straw that broke the camel’s back. The people of Ukraine don’t want to be a part of Russia. They want to be independent. Putin has sent more than 25,000 un-uniformed troops into Ukraine, all carrying high-tech weapons. On Feb. 22, Yemocovich fled to Russia with his family, taking between $20 billion and $40 billion

from the Ukrainian government. I celebrated this event, but soon Russia wanted to strike even harder and take Crimea; again, this was just to make the U.S. upset. My biggest concern right now is that Putin will not stop here. He is just like Hitler was in the 1930s, and he wants complete domination. I’m positive if we had President (Ronald) Reagan in the White House, Putin would remain silent. Obama and the current administration need to show Russia that the U.S. is not weak. The Ukrainian people, and myself, do not want a war. We do not want blood. We believe the Western world needs to impose heavy sanctions on Russian oil and gas. The Olympics in Sochi were completely grotesque to watch. Putin is fake and everything he said about Russia is fake. If he needs to, even my 75-year-old father said he will fight against Russia. Putin dreams of the Cold War, and wants to recreate it just like Stalin. I am thankful for Mr. Putin because he has united Ukraine and showed us that we don’t want Russia anymore. If anyone would like to help Ukraine during these tough times, please provide your contact information by going to the web site www. UkraineForDemocracy.com Alex Morozov is CEO of Swan Software Solutions, a company based in Central Indiana with three offices in Ukraine. He is founder of the Ukrainian Legion, a non-profit raising funds to help the Ukrainian army.

The masterplan for Creekside Corporate Park was discussed during the March 24, Redevelopment Commission meetDevelopment ing. Two concept maps were distributed amongst the commissioners, both of which are being considered for the development of the area near 106th and South Main streets. “It has been distributed to the members, and I would call this a near final [draft],” said commissioner Brad Johnson. According to Johnson, the concept maps will be used to incentivize the area for perspective businesses. “We want to give people a vision of what this corridor may be,” Johnson said. Following are attributes of the differing concept maps. A website is currently being developed by marketer Paul Kites, who will soon be approaching businesses interested in developing parcels of this land. Concept number one • Two entrances into the area • 3,300 feet of road • Parcels are between the sizes of 1.3 to 5.3 acres large, but can be combined to accommodate individual developments. • 40 acres of developable land and 26 areas of common area • 5,700 feet of trail

Wessel Building The Wessel building at Hawthorne and First Streets will soon be seeing a reconstruction of its exterior, if and when the Zionsville Architectural Review Committee approves a façade grant that would help owner Ron Wessel pay for the building updates. “This project falls into what we want to do, to make a building sit pleasantly and aesthetically for the coming years,” said committee president David Rausch. Wessel said he has not determined the price of all the building’s updates yet, but hopes to replace the siding that faces south and remove the barn-like columns in the front. This would be in addition to the $14,000 roof he already installed. “I’ve decided to go ahead and move forward and see what happens,” Wessel said of the façade grant. (Photo by Sophie Pappas)

Spring break and hard work
Commentary by Ward Degler
I recently spent a few days camping with some guys from Ball State University. But this was no normal fun-in-the-sun plain talk camping trip. The five boys were part of a Wilderness Outreach effort to clear hiking and fire trails in Kentucky’s Daniel Boone National Forest of fallen trees, brush, mud and rocks. For a solid week they rose early and worked late with shovels, picks, axes and two-man crosscut saws. Where trails had collapsed, they moved heavy rocks and carefully rebuilt what had been lost. They slept in sleeping bags on the ground in small tents, wearing long johns and sweaters to keep warm. They prepared their own meals over open fires, which they had to stoke to life each morning and evening. And, of course, they had to cut their own firewood. There were no showers, and no one shaved. They washed with water from jerry cans. At the end of each day’s work they spent a quiet hour in meditation and reflection. Every day
ended with a church service. Later, around the campfire they shared life stories, told jokes, poked fun at one another and then, heavy with fatigue, wandered off to find their tents for a few hours sleep before rising again to frost on the ground and another day’s labor. This was spring break for these guys. Sure, they could have joined the throngs on the sunny beaches of Florida. Instead, they opted to help preserve a part of our nation by doing work the US Forest Service had no budget to do. I was proud to spend a few days with these young men. I didn’t get to know them well of course, they were too busy working. But just knowing they are out there makes me feel good about the future of our country.

Tips for planting this spring
The gardens of Zionsville’s village use unique figurines and restored glass balls to beautify small yards. For more ideas, visit the Gardens of Zionsville tour this June. (Submitted photos)
By Sophie Pappas and Sara Baldwin • firstname.lastname@example.org It’s that time of year again, that time when those at Better Homes and Gardens start printing words like bulbs, perennials, shrubs and groundcovers. But what does it all mean? And what can cover story you do to beautify and enjoy your Zionsville yard? Current in Zionsville asked local experts where and how to get involved with gardening, for those who have green thumbs and those who have never lifted a seed. “Now is the time to plant perennials, especially trees and shrubs,” said Jonas Carpenter, co-founder of Bread & Roses Nursery. “They’re dormant, so they will have less transplant shock.” Cold crops like peas, carrots, kale, broccoli and beets can be directly sewn soon into your garden area, as well as spring bulbs like tulips and daffodils, which will begin to flower in the coming weeks. Seeds for later crops can now be started indoors, near a sunny window. Whatever you decide to plant, Carpenter said don’t be afraid to try new things. “Gardening is all about making mistakes, so don’t be afraid of failure,” Carpenter said. “Think about how you can offset your culinary needs with a garden, and remember that the answer to healthy plants is living soil.”
Where to go
Take a class
Garden clubs of Zionsville
Community gardens are a great place to get started with this year’s planting. Several gardens around town offer small plots for rent, designed for people who may not have a large enough yard to grow vegetables or flowers. The Zionsville Parks and Recreation Dept. has 20-by-20 foot garden plots available for $20 per plot. There are 10 plots left for use at Elm Street Green in the village, and more than 20 plots left at Heritage Trail Gardens, which is located on southwest corner of the intersection of county roads 400-S and 875-E. “People grow vegetables and some people donate all of their produce to food pantries,” said Parks Director, Matt Dickey. “And as long as we’re allowed to, Dickey we provide water for all of the plots.” Another location to plant is at St. Francis In-The-Fields Episcopal Church on Mulberry Street. Plots at the church are $40 per plot, and are located directly behind the church building. According to Rector C. Davies Reed, many of the church’s gardeners donate to local food banks as well. There are 68 plots available at the church.
Learn how to include edible plants in an ornamental garden, or how to attract more butterflies to your yard. The Hussey-Mayfield Memorial Public Library is hosting professional gardener, Amy Mullen, to teach classes this month.
Another good way to brush up on gardening skills is to join a garden club. The Village Residents’ Association of Zionsville gathers throughout the spring and summer to discuss gardening options and weather patterns. Stonegate neighborhood also hosts a garden club in the large central park throughout the neighborhood. Seasonal planting meetings will start this month.
For more information on renting a plot through the town, contact the Park and Recreation Dept. at 733-2273. To purchase a plot at the Episcopal Church, call the church office at 873-4377.
The Edible Landscapes class is from 7 to 8 p.m., April 15 in the Hussey Room. The Butterfly Gardens class is from 7 to 8 p.m., April 29 in the Hussey Room. To register for the gardening classes, contact the library at 873-3149.
For information on how to join the Stonegate Garden Club, contact Lisa Pellam at 847-4541. To join the Village Residents’Association Garden Club, contact Marianne and Guinn Doyle at 873-2547.
Garden tour For a bit of inspiration on what a beautiful garden can look like in Indiana springs and summers, make a trip to the annual Gardens of Zionsville tour. This year’s tour will take place from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., June 14. The event is organized by the SullivanMunce Cultural Center, and all proceeds will benefit SullivanMunce. “There will be six lovely gardens to explore,” said SullivanMunce Art Director, Cynthia Young. All of the gardens on display during the tour are located on private properties throughout the village and Zionsville. “There will be knowledgeable gardeners in each garden to greet and talk with the visitors,” Young said. For more information or to purchase tickets for the Gardens of Zionsville tour, visit the SullivanMunce Cultural Center located at 225 West Hawthorne St. Tickets are $20 for adults, but are discounted to $15 before June 14. Tickets for children 10 and older are $5.
Here are a few guidelines to help green your thumbs and ready your yards for planting season. • Start planning your garden space. Though you may not be planting much right now, this is the perfect time to start planning and preparing. “It is important to start out understanding your soil structure, which will help you decide how to garden,” said McKenzie Beverage, Sustainability Coordinator at Butler University. Add organic matter to your garden areas from compost (if you have it), or by purchasing fertilizer from a local farm or hardware store. Gather materials like untreated cedar and pine to build any raised beds, and begin mapping out your space. • Prune bushes and ornamental grasses before they germinate. Rake old leaves and clean up old foliage. Later-blooming shrubs can be cut back 8-to-10 inches to encourage new growth and maintain a manageable size. Plant perennials, especially trees and shrubs, as well as cool-season annuals. To see a video about how to plant a sustainable yard, visit www.currentzionsville.om

FR O M T H E B A C KS H O P 9-1-1 prank wasn’t funny in the least It was a normal day at Zionsville Middle School one day last week. Around lunchtime, though, things got unnecessarily hairy, when a number of calls were placed to 9-1-1 emergency dispatchers. There was a quick lawenforcement response and it all turned out to be a prank. A fifth-grader placed the series of calls from a pay phone (Remember those?) in the school. A day disrupted. A waste of tax dollars associated with the police response. Yes, kids will be kids, but this one was over the line. The parent in us would be embarrassed beyond tears. The parent in us also would be enraged that something so senseless could be perpetrated. We’re in an age of heightened awareness of school tragedies, so when a call comes in to 9-1-1 from any academic institution, blood pressure naturally rises, the heart rate quickens and all kinds of thoughts run through all kinds of minds. Our guess is the student was just being a kid, but that student needs to fully understand the gravity of the situation. The school should mete out a fitting punishment of its choosing, we suppose up to and including suspension. As to whether charges are forthcoming from law enforcement (At least reimbursement for the response?), we were waiting to learn as of press time. And maybe it’s time for that old pay phone to go the way of most of its brethren. ••• We realize the primary election is more than a month away, but it’s never too soon to research and listen to the many candidates eligible for May 6 polling. Closer to voting day, we’ll provide an election primer, one that will be part of Current on May 3. We don’t like to deliver on Election Day, so you’ll have your paper the Saturday before.

Sloth or the will to succeed Commentary by Terry Anker
One struggles with the concept of sloth. We enjoy a leisurely weekend on the sofa pretending to “catch-up” on vital recorded sit-coms all-thewhile sleeping soundly as our families cooperate with the fiction. But on Monday morning, we’re off again to confront the daily battles, of the working, first-world human. Yet one witnesses our progeny, arguably our closest genetic match, and we judge. Yes, we judge with reckless abandon. How dare they sleep until noon? How dare they eat seemingly endless calories without gaining the telltale weight that befalls those of us who have been blessed by “the good life?” But, now is their time. The sleep is precipitated by unregulated growth and surging hormones. While quarterly calculus finals amuse us compared to mortgage payments and angry in-laws, the stress of youth in present times is real and measurable. Without regard to our own challenges – often addressed as the two-way walk, uphill to school and back – it is true to
acknowledge that the modern world has delivered “modern” problems to even the youngest amongst our ranks. But if present day media has anything to say about it, humanity is doomed. The youth in our midst lack both the ability and the desire to carry their own weight. Could it be true? Are we nearing the end of our reign as the dominant species? Yet Roy and Katie Appleget from Burlington, Iowa, lived in a tent at a local campground for months on end accumulating the down-payment for their first home. While many took handouts, these working-class heroes decided to figure it out on their own. Does the will to succeed exceed our thirst for sloth; or is it simply that Roy and Katie have missed the virtue of Ferragamo or the latest iWhatever?

Time apart rechargs the batteries Commentary by Danielle Wilson My husband has been getting on my nerves lately, which is why I was absolutely thrilled when he volunteered to take our humor oldest to Cincinnati for a soccer tournament. Sure, I had to suffer through a dance competition with more drama and hair spray than I’d experienced in 1987 at my all-girls high school, but the short break from spouse hood was sorely needed. Is that bad? Am I a terrible wife for wanting Doo out from under foot for a bit? It’s just that recently he’s totally been screwing with my highly sacred morning routine. See, I’m an introvert who spends all my waking hours either dealing with my own four children or 150 of other people’s. As such, I like to begin my day with as little stimulus as possible. Normally I come downstairs to a dark and sleepy main floor, make my coffee, feed the dog, finish lunches, and head out, having only spoken briefly to my oldest daughter. Last week, however, Doo beat me to the punch every morning! The TV was at full volume, every light was a-blazing, and my husband was rat-tat-tatting on his laptop, all by 5:30! And he wanted to talk. So my usual “me time” suddenly became “our time” and I was definitely not on board with it. Granted, I married Doo because he is an extrovert. I love that he thrives on sounds, lights, and lots of personal interaction. But normally said
extrovert is a night owl, which plays nicely into not only my morning requirements, but also my admittedly anal-bedtime environment. Black-hole darkness; vibrating sound machine, occasionally placed right underneath my noggin for ultimate chatter/television cancelling capability; argyle knee-sock-turned eye mask; and four not-too-hard, not-too-soft pillows. The name of the game is sensory deprivation, fans, so when Doo decides 9 o’clock is his time to crash, too, my carefully laid plans go to straight to hell. Obviously, my habits drive him bonkers just as much. He commented as he skipped out the door Saturday morning, “I can’t wait to sleep in a hotel tonight!” For both of us it seems, the time apart was lovely. We got to do our own things in the manner we like to do them without worrying about frustrating (or being frustrated by) each other’s preferences. And that made us both happier when he returned. I am a far better person when Doo’s around, and actually need his energy to get me through many a day. But the occasional solo weekend can definitely be a nice respite. Even if it involves some dance mania. Peace out.
Downsize without downsides.

A Gregory Hancock Dance Theatre ensemble cast dances during the entrance into Jerusalem in “Superhero: The Story of a Man Called Jesus.” (Submitted photo)
Passion of Christ told through dance By Terri Spilman firstname.lastname@example.org The Gregory Hancock Dance Theatre’s original production of “Superhero: The Story of a Man Called Jesus” theatre has ascended as a not-tobe-missed Easter tradition running April 4 and 5 at the Tarkington Theatre at The Center for the Performing Arts in Carmel. “I just felt like I wanted to do a danced version of the Passion,” said Artistic Director Gregory Hancock. “There have been many movies made of the Passion, I don’t think there’s been too many danced versions. It is such a compelling story and so interesting, with a lot of interesting characters so I decided to create my version of it.” This critically acclaimed, full-length modern ballet follows the last week of the life of Jesus as told through the perspective of Jesus and the women surrounding him, and his complicated relationships with Judas Iscariot. Even the cast is predominately female with only two males out of 60 cast members. “The piece kind of starts out with a rock concert feel, people are sometimes
just a little surprised or taken aback, but there is this evolution that happens and by the end it feels very classical and beautiful.” Hancock created the contemporary soundtrack from a variety of music sources that includes pop music from artists such as U2 and Rob Thomas as well as some music from film. Hancock uses bright colors and costume influences from many places in the world. “We are all kind of programmed that Jesus needs to be dressed in a white robe but I don’t know why. That’s the beauty of art. We can kind of add our feelings or our impressions of things to it. It’s a very personal piece for me as most of my work is.” Superhero features Gregory Hancock Dance Theatre veteran dancers Martin Casanova as Jesus, Heather Helene King as Mother Mary, Melanie Eakman as Mary Magdalene and guest artist Liang Fu as Judas.

Conquering food craving Commentary by Debra Balos Ever wonder what causes you to crave certain foods? Do your cravings seem to occur in similar situations, such as when Nutrition you’re under stress? Research points to specific areas of the brain – those involved with memory and sensing pleasure – that are responsible for food cravings. Cravings also are linked to emotions. They may arise as a way of reducing anxiety or relieving stress. Studies show that a combination of fat and sugar can have a calming effect, and carbohydrates increase levels of serotonin, a hormone that also induces calm. If frequent cravings for indulgences like chocolate, potato chips or ice cream threaten to sabotage your nutrition or your waistline, there are strategies to help manage food cravings. Seek lower-calorie alternatives. The taste of low-calorie and reduced-fat snacks and treats has come a long way. Find a few favorites to help satisfy your craving. Don’t ignore hunger. Skipping meals or waiting too long to eat can make us so hungry that we crave something quick and satisfying – which may not always be the best choice. Eating small meals throughout the day can help fend off hunger-induced cravings. Make wiser choices. If you crave carbohydrates, try those that are more nutritious like whole grains, beans, fruits and vegetables.

dispatches Prevent brain damage? - A French study suggests that a diet rich in green and orange produce can protect your brain from age-related failure by shielding your brain from damage. Good sources include leafy greens, carrots, citrus fruits, and sweet potatoes, and should be included in at least two of your five daily produce servings. - Men’s Health Workout diet – The harder you exercise, the hungrier you will be, right? Not exactly. A new study in the International Journal of Obesity suggests that 30 minutes of high-intensity cardio can better suppress hunger-stimulating hormones than moderate or low-intensity workouts. Intense workouts also burn more calories while exercising. - Naturalhealthmag.com Go ahead and skip that meai – Contrary to popular belief, research suggests that skipping a meal or two can be beneficial. Intermittent fasting before a workout can trigger hormonal changes conducive to burning fat and building muscle. Fasting may take time to get used to, but it will help the body perform better when it does have fuel in the tank. - Greatist.com

Write it down. Sometimes managing food cravings is easier when you know more about why and when they strike. Keep a journal for a month, writing down when you have cravings and the circumstances. This may help you see patterns you can work to avoid. Take time for yourself. Be sure to make time in your day to relax and rejuvenate. This can help lower stress, and therefore reduce the chance you’ll crave foods in response to stress. Make a plan. When cravings hit, know how you’re going to respond. Find a pleasurable activity, such as walking or yoga, to engage in while the craving passes. To deal with cravings, some people find it helpful to eat just a small bite or serving of the food they crave instead of totally abstaining. Find the solution that works best for you.

Tips on maximizing Social Security Commentary by Joel Haris Social Security often is one of the most overlooked aspects of proper retirement income planning. Here are some specific finance rules to keep in mind as you start factoring your Social Security benefits into your retirement planning. You contribute 6.2 percent of your income Workers pay 6.2 percent of their earnings into the Social Security system, up to $117,000 in 2014. Employers pay a matching 6.2 percent for each worker. Self-employed workers must contribute 12.4 percent of their income annually. How your benefit is calculated Social Security payments are calculated based on your 35 highest-earning years in the workforce, and are also adjusted for inflation. If you don’t have 35 years of earnings, zeros are averaged in for the years you didn’t pay into Social Security. Know your full retirement age You can collect the full amount of Social Security you have earned at what the Social Security Administration calls your full retirement age, which varies based on your birth year. It is very important to know when your full retirement age is because of earnings limit restrictions if you file early, potential spousal benefit strategies at or after full retirement age, and timing of benefits as part of your overall retirement income planning strategy. The current ages for full retirement benefits are 65 and 8 months for those born in 1941,
65 and 10 months if born in 1942, 66 for those born between 1943-1954, 66 and 2 months in 1955, 66 and 4 months in 1956, 66 and 6 months in 1957, 66 and 8 months in 1958, 66 and 10 months in 1959, and 67 for anyone born after 1960. Know the income limitation rule If you elect to take benefits before your full retirement age, please make sure you’re aware of the income limitation rule on earned income as it relates to benefits possibly being withheld. In 2014, $1 of benefits will be withheld for every $2 in earnings above $15,480. This rule is applicable every year until your reach full retirement age and can change each year. It is imperative to take this rule into consideration because the benefits you were expecting could be dramatically reduced. You get bigger checks if you delay claiming You can increase your Social Security checks by delaying when you sign up for Social Security. For example, people born in 1943 or later will get 8 percent larger payments for each year they delay claiming after their full retirement age, up to age 70. After age 70, there is no additional benefit to delaying claiming Social Security. Subsequently, your benefits could be reduced by as much as 25 percent if you elect to take them at 62 versus your full retirement age. Married couples have additional options Married couples are entitled to claim Social Security based on their own work record, or payments worth up to 50 percent of the higher

earner’s benefit. And when one spouse dies, the surviving spouse will receive an amount equal to the higher earner’s benefit. Ex-spouses are also eligible for Social Security benefits if the marriage lasted at least 10 years. Couples who have reached their full retirement age can even claim spousal payments, and then later switch to payments based on their own work record, which will then be higher due to delayed claiming. Claiming spousal benefits, including file and suspend and claim now, claim later strategies can be really tricky, so please research your options carefully before electing your benefits. View your Social Security statement online The Social Security Administration has stopped mailing paper Social Security statements to most workers due to budgetary restrictions. If you want to view your complete earnings history, taxes paid into the system and get a personalized estimate of your expected payments, you’ll need to create a Social Security online account and log in to view your statement. You can do this by visiting www. ssa.gov. It’s a good idea to periodically check your statement to make sure your information is being recorded correctly and to make decisions about when to claim Social Security.

Spring ahead with new trends Commentary by Nikki Blaine Hail to the sun, it’s spring again! Oh, how it’s been missed! What a delightful feeling to embrace the rays of sunshine fashion beaming down our body as we parade the streets of Zionsville! So what deems to be the theme for spring 2014? Who would have thought “Orange is the New Black” would be meant literally? Well, according to the runways in New York during Mercedes Benz Fashion Week, this deems to be true for spring. We saw hints of it last spring/summer and now it’s forcefully bold. From the lips to the hips, bold or monochromatic the color orange is making its presence known. Obviously, orange isn’t for everyone nor should everyone feel compelled to wear orange. This brings me to another color this season: pink! Yes, color me pink. You can follow the shades from pale to fuchsia, so take your pick. Regardless of the color choice you can add the minimum of the hot trendy color for the season and find yourself trendy and in style. So, if neither of the colors really adds interest to your wardrobe, I would suggest purchasing few inexpensive accessories just to show your friends you are current with the fashion trends this spring. Now, on another note, spring brings about another pleasurable time … prom season. My

radar has already indicated a different color than the previous colors mentioned. The prom gals are speaking teal and turquoise this season already! So, with that being said, don’t be afraid to play with various color palettes this season. Certainly you cannot go wrong. Well, it’s the time again; I’m your Glam Chic Gal signing off until next!

Paris’ most iconic landmark, the Eiffel Tower, was supposed to be disassembled in 1919 - 20 years after being built. (Photo by Don Knebel)
The legacy of Gustave Eiffel Commentary by Don Knebel
In 1887, 300 French writers and artists signed a petition demanding that erection “of this useless and monstrous Eiffel Tower” travel be halted immediately. What the petitioners called “a giddy, ridiculous tower dominating Paris like a gigantic black smokestack” has become a beloved symbol of Paris, each year attracting almost seven million visitors, more than any other paid monument in the world. The Eiffel Tower is named for Gustave Eiffel, a French engineer who gained fame in 1880 for his innovative design for an iron truss skeleton for the Statue of Liberty, replacing the planned masonry core. Maurice Koechlin, a member of Eiffel’s firm who worked on that design, learned of a need for an entrance arch near the left bank of the Seine for a world’s fair commemorating the 100th anniversary of the French Revolution. He and colleague Émile Nouguiera proposed an iron lattice arch extending into a tower 300 meters high, far taller than any man-made structure. Initially lukewarm, Eiffel eventually championed the idea of showing the capabilities of iron for very tall structures. His firm’s design, enhanced by architect Émile Nouguiera, was se-
lected in 1886. When the Eiffel Tower was completed in 1889, it nearly doubled the height of the Washington Monument, built entirely of stone. As originally approved, the Eiffel Tower was to be disassembled after 20 years and its 7,300 tons of iron and 2.5 million rivets sold as scrap. But Gustave Eiffel had other ideas. Soon after the tower’s opening, he began inviting scientists to use it for experiments requiring great heights. In 1919, as the permit was to expire, antennae atop the tower began sending radio signals throughout France and the Eiffel Tower earned a permanent place in the Parisian skyline. The Eiffel Tower remained the world’s tallest man-made structure until the Chrysler Building surpassed it in 1930, incorporating a steel skeleton pioneered by William Le Baron Jenney, an engineering classmate of Gustave Eiffel in Paris. Today, thanks to Eiffel and his classmate, no one would think of building a tall structure without the “hateful column of bolted sheet metal” disparaged by Eiffel’s nineteenth century critics.

Cosmetic kitchen upgrade lowers project budget
Commentary by Larry Greene
EXISTING KITCHEN: This home, in the Hamilton Proper development in Fishers, was built in 1994. For about two blueprint for years, the owners have improvement wanted to remodel their original kitchen. The existing cabinets were still in good shape – but the rest of the kitchen seemed outdated. The original white Corian countertops were showing their age and the appliances were outdated. The owners wanted to update without spending as much money as a full remodel requires. The existing layout of the kitchen worked well, so the focus became cosmetic upgrades. COUNTERTOP AND BACKSPLASH AREA: The rich colors of the Uba Tuba granite and the coordinating Baoding Creme Quartz Brick backsplash tile contrast nicely with the existing white cabinetry. Carrying the backsplash tile up to the ceiling behind the range hood added to the visual interest. CABINET MODIFICATIONS: The old appliances were replaced with new coordinating stainless steel appliances. Existing wall cabinets above the gas range had to be removed to make way for the new wall-mounted vent hood. The existing double oven cabinet opening was also modified to accept the new ovens. PLUMBING FIXTURES & HARDWARE: The existing plumbing fixtures were replaced in-
before & after
cluding new Kraus brand 33-inch double bowl undermount stainless steel sink with a new Kohler single handle faucet and matching soap dispenser. All new fixtures were done in brushed nickel. New brushed nickel cabinet knobs were installed to provide a cohesive look with the rest of the kitchen.
RESULT: In the end, the homeowners certainly achieved the modern look they had been dreaming of without making dramatic changes to the cabinetry or footprint of the kitchen. The upgraded granite countertops, warm colored tiled backsplash, coordinating plumbing fixtures and hardware came together to create a kitchen worthy of this beautiful home.
