Lions Park purchases land from local family

Zionsville’s Lions Park and Lions Club, a nonprofit dedicated to serving the community, recently purchased a 4-acre parcel.

The land was previously owned by the Henkaline family and is on the north boundary of Lions Park. According to Boone County property records, Lions Park paid $150,000 for the parcel.

“The Zionsville Lions have operated as caretakers of this beautiful community park since its inception in 1940, and we are excited about this land expansion,” said Gene Thompson, Lions Club Park director. “Just like the recent addition of a new playground structure next to the gazebo, we are always looking for ways to serve the citizens of Zionsville at Lions Park.”

For Keven and Virginia Henkaline, who

have been married for 70 years, the decision to sell the land was not easy. They have lived on the property for more than 50 years, having reared their children alongside the park.

“This was very meaningful to us, and Gene’s kindness made the decision so much easier,” Virginia said. “Selling the land to the Lions Park will be a lasting tribute to the Henkaline family.”

The Henkalines moved to Zionsville in 1973. Virginia served on the Zionsville Town Council, and the couple volunteered as emergency medical technicians in the community.

Virginia said the couple is happy the property would be used to serve the Zionsville community.

“We are honored to have been part of this transition and to participate in bettering the town with this land,” Virginia said. “Many

more memories can be made here with other families in the future.”

Lions Park is a popular destination in town with baseball fields, playgrounds, and walking trails.

“The field has a lot of fond memories for our family,” said Nancy Vinson, one of the Henkalines’ two daughters. “Moving so close to town we got to have the field to have the farm life that we all loved.”

Adding the new land will enhance the park’s offerings, providing more space for community events, activities and recreation.

“Dad was a baseball and softball coach and coached all five of us kids at the ball diamonds in the park,” said Cindy Simpson, another of Henkaline’s daughters. “We grew up at the park, running across that land to watch the games and play.”

Plans for the property are still being determined.

Plaque to mark old train depot

Plans are underway to install a historical marker along the Big-4 Rail Trail in Zionsville to commemorate a since-demolished train depot that was built 130 years ago.

COMMEMORATION

The Historical Preservation Committee of Zionsville, a nonprofit with the mission to maintain the character of the Village in the Town of Zionsville, announced its plans at the parks board meeting April 14 to have a marker made to commemorate the depot.

The committee is attempting to raise approximately $3,000 to order and install the marker.

“We thought it would add interest as people are walking along the route as to why this beautiful trail is here and learn there was a railroad going through there,” said Mark Zelonis, a member of the Historical Preservation Committee.

Zionsville has a rich history that dates back to the late-1800s. A significant part of that history is the Big-4 Rail Trail, which runs through the heart of the town.

The Rail Trail, formally known as the New York Central Railroad, was one of the reasons the town was created, as it played a vital role in Zionsville’s development and growth.

“It’s amazing to think that these big locomotives came through the middle of town,” Zelonis said. “The train came right up 1st Street to drop off and pick up passengers from the train depot.”

The train depot originally stood next to what is now Lincoln Park before being moved to 5th Street in 1923 for safety reasons.

“This was all done on logs back then,” Zelonis said. “They just picked up the depot and rolled it on these rollers up the street.”

Lincoln Park received its name several years ago as a historical site where President Abraham Lincoln made a train stop on the way to his inauguration in 1861.

The depot was an essential part of the town’s economy, as it facilitated the transportation of goods and people to and from the town. But in 1961, the depot was decommissioned and sat idle for a number of years.

“I think there was some talk back then of having it become a museum, but for reasons we don’t know, that didn’t happen,” Zelonis said.

Consequently, the train depot was demolished in the mid-1970s.

The plaque will be installed at the depot’s last location, which is now the popular hiking and biking trail, the Big-4 Rail Trail.

Mark Walters, chairman of the Zionsville Historical Preservation Committee, said doing things to enhance the appreciation of the town’s historic heritage is why the committee was formed.

“This plaque is one of several we are hoping to put around the village that celebrates our railroad heritage,” Walters said. “The whole reason Zionsville exists is because of the railroad.”

The town has offered to pour a concrete pad and install a bench near the marker.

The bronze plaque will include a QR code to learn more about Zionsville.

A future plan to replicate the train depot as a welcome center for the Town of Zionsville is being considered as well.

The funds to acquire the plaque will be raised through a GoFundMe account. For more, visit gofundme.com/f/ zionsville-historic-plaque.

Mixed-use development proposed in Zionsville

Old Town Companies, a Carmel-based developer, proposed a 260-acre development on Marysville Road in Zionsville at the April 17 Zionsville Plan Commission meeting.

WILD AIR

Wild Air would be a mixed-use development with retail, townhomes, single-family houses, apartments, senior living, civic use and preserved woodlands.

The plan commission voted unanimously for a continuance for the May 15 meeting to further discuss for Wild Air.

The development would be just north of Oak Street and south of County Road 550 South. It has multiple parcels on the east and west sides of Marysville Road, nestled 2.5 miles west of the historic downtown Zionsville.

The site currently has one single-family residence, multiple acres of farmed ground and wooded areas owned by the Johnson family, which has lived in the Zionsville community for several generations.

Justin Moffett, CEO of Old Town Companies, said during his presentation to the plan commission that the Johnson family wanted a “legacy development.”

Moffett said there would be a community park in Wild Air development created by preserving 30-acres of woodlands.

“Tree preservation is quite an opportunity for us to create a neighborhood that’s engaging for new residents, but we also know that’s a concern for existing residents,” Moffett said.

Wild Air would have eight different communities throughout the site.

The development’s centerpiece, Marysville

Crossing, would include 280 loft-style luxury apartments and retail businesses.

The site would also include a community clubhouse, a swimming pool, trails that would interconnect the eight different communities, senior living, cottages for ILADD’s Crossbridge Point residential community, traditional single-family homes on the east and west sides of Marysville Road and a 10-acre civic parcel.

The development would be primarily served by Marysville Road, which runs north and south through the middle of the development.

Two roundabouts have been proposed on Marysville Road, each providing access to the development on the east and west sides of Marysville Road.

Mt. Vernon senior proves to be a man for all seasons

Mt. Vernon High School senior pitcher/ shortstop Eli Bridenthal’s competitiveness extends beyond the baseball diamond.

“Even in fifth-grade recess, the teachers would get mad at me for not passing the ball because I didn’t want to lose,” Bridenthal said.

“I mean, I’ll race you down the hallway just to say I beat you. Some people just don’t like me simply for the fact that I’m too competitive sometimes.”

That competitiveness drove Bridenthal to play football, basketball and baseball throughout high school.

“He is one of the most competitive players I’ve coached in my 20 years as a head coach,” Mt. Vernon baseball coach Brad King said.

As of April 18, Bridenthal, who will play baseball for Xavier University next season, was hitting .432. The 6-foot-2 right-hander had a 2-0 record with a 1.27 earned run av-

erage for the Marauders (8-2).

“Eli puts in a great deal of time to improve all of his skills,” King said. “Eli is one of the best pitchers in the state, a very solid defensive shortstop, and his athleticism makes him a threat on offense. But his greatest improvement has been as a leader. Eli has been on several successful teams at MVHS, including baseball. Younger players

“It’s even more rare to see one who is as skilled as Eli is in those sports,” King said. “He was, and is, not only a starter on each of the teams, but he plays a large role in the success these programs have. Again, this is due to being blessed with great athletic ability and traits, a tremendous work ethic, and a competitive drive to maximize his potential.”

Bridenthal said he enjoyed playing all three sports his entire life.

“I’ve never had an offseason,” he said. “I don’t like sitting around doing nothing. I love individual things about each sport. With basketball, I love the culture. Being in Indiana, there’s nothing like it. Football, you can’t beat Friday night lights. I love everything about baseball.”

Bridenthal invents games to liven up practice.

see this and realize he understands what it takes to get to the next level of success.”

King said it’s rare these days to see three-sport athletes at larger schools such as Mt. Vernon.

“We’ll be taking batting practice and I’ll be in the outfield, saying whoever catches the most balls wins,” he said. “It makes my teammates go harder.”

Bridenthal, who played some quarterback and receiver, threw for 422 yards, rushed for 394 yards and caught 41 passes for 622 yards last season.

Discarded medical device caused school evacuation

Boone Meadow Elementary School, at 5555 S Main St. in Whitestown, was evacuated prior to the start of the school day April 13 because of a suspicious object beeping in a trash can in the front of the school.

SCHOOLS

The Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department Bomb Squad arrived at 8:30 a.m. and concluded that a discarded diabetic medical device created the beeping sound.

“After a long, extended time, IMPD’s bomb division came and determined through X-rays and their technicians that the device was a diabetic meter that was beeping,” Boone County Sheriff Tony Harris said. “Our deputy (Boone Meadow Elementary School’s school resource officer) that was at the school had told us that he heard multiple beeps and then a long tone.”

Harris said that was when officials evacuated the school and sent the students to a safe area away from the school.

“Then we sent our officers in to make sure no one was in the school,” Harris said.

Zionsville Community Schools Supt. Rebecca Coffman lauded the “swift actions” or first responders that included the Boone County Sheriff’s Dept., Zionsville Police Dept., Whitestown Police Dept. and Zionsville and Whitestown police departments.

“We live in an area where every day we

have prevention and response,” Coffman said. “The students that were on-site as well as the staff who were present prior to the school day were evacuated, and students who were en route to school via our buses were taken to another location (Zionsville West Middle School).” Coffman said parents were kept informed throughout the morning as the investigation was underway. Students were sent home for the day, but the school resumed the following day.

Baseball league seeks players

The Hoosier Adult Baseball league is looking for a few good men — or at least enough to field two more teams. The 48-and-older baseball league is seeking to expand from six teams to eight, league president John Dearth said. The season begins Aug. 1 and ends Oct. 17. There are 12 games in the regular season, followed by the playoffs. All games are played at Grand Park in Westfield.

SPORTS

Dearth, a Carmel resident, said most of the players are from Hamilton County with some from Zionsville and Indianapolis.

“For me, personally, someone who has loved baseball since I can recall at age 4, playing in this league has been some of the most fun I have ever had playing baseball,” Dearth said. “We are there to compete, but our goal is to place a premium on sportsmanship, and fun. I have met some terrific people in the five years this league has been around. Grand Park is a terrific facility, and it helps to make the baseball experience that much better.”

The league was started in 2018 by Todd Eschmann and Dwight Podgurski. Dearth said Eschmann couldn’t play because of an injury. Podgurski was president and Dearth became vice president. When Podgurski moved to Colorado, Dearth became president midway during the 2020 season.

Each team has 12 to 16 players.

“The reason we put a limit on the high side is guys get to play,” Dearth said.,

The oldest league player last year was 76, but the 53-year-old Dearth said most players are in their early to mid-50s.

Construction underway

CURRENT Q&A

Construction of a new roundabout in Zionsville is underway. The roundabout will replace the traffic light at the intersection of Oak Street and CR 800 East (Kissell Road).

ROUNDABOUT

According to an announcement from the town, a full road closure of Oak Street will be in effect between June 1 and Sept. 1.

The traffic signal was installed in 2017 as a temporary measure to assist with traffic management of the intersection until a roundabout could be designed, funded and constructed, according to the Town of Zionsville. Completion of the roundabout is expected to be Nov. 29.

Detour routes were announced March 31 by the town for the closures and construction.

Detours for Oak Street will be at 875 East, 300 South, Albert S. White Drive/400 South and South Main Street/650 East.

Detours for 800 East will be 550 South, Marysville Road/850 East, and Hunt Club Road.

Resident authors WWII book

May said he started writing veteran service stories in 2012 after retiring from the Navy Reserve.

BOOKS

Ronald P. May, the chaplain at Hoosier Village Retirement Community in Zionsville, has published a book that explores Indiana’s World War II landmarks.

A Carmel resident, May is an author and historian who has spent many years collecting interviews and chronicling the historical importance of Indiana during the World War II era. In his new book, “World War II Indiana Landmarks,” May writes about historical locations in the state.

May, who has a master’s degree in World War II studies, was a chaplain in the U.S. Navy Reserve for 22 years. His experience inspired him to publish four books, including his latest. His first three books are part of a three-volume series, “Our Service, Our Stories”.

“Most of the stories were of World War II veterans, but I did write some stories of those who served in Korea, Vietnam and during the Cold War,” May said.

Inspiration for “World War II Indiana Landmarks” came to May while he studied for his master’s at Arizona State University. He reached out to History Press to see if it was interested in his book proposal.

May said he has plans to add books to his first series, “Our Service, Our Stories”.

“Volume 4 will feature stories of medical personnel who served during World War II. Volume 5 will be similar to Volumes 1 and 3, an assortment of stories of service members and those who served on the home front (civilian and military,” May said.

PRACTICE TO THE PODIUM

Training key to young gymnasts’ success

Three young gymnasts have been working hard to become state champions in their sport.

Each won first place in their age division for the all-around category — a category of gymnastics that includes all events in which the champion of an event earns the highest total score from all events combined — at the Indiana State Championship gymnastics meet March 11 in Mishawaka as part of the Interactive Academy team.

But the road to success was not an easy one for the gymnasts, who train at Interactive Academy in Zionsville.

Zionsville residents Eli Lock and Landry Grey and Carmel resident Aaronson Mansberger each said hard work is the key to their success.

Each has their own unique strengths and abilities. Lock, 11, known by his team for his skill on the high bar and attention to technique, said becoming a champion in gymnastics takes hard work and lots of practice.

“I look up to my teammates and I see the skills they do, and I dream of doing those same skills, so I keep practicing drills so I can eventually do them,” said Lock, a fifth-grader at Zionsville West Middle School. “You have to keep practicing to learn the skills, and eventually you will.”

Mansberger, 17, a powerhouse on the pommel horse, said physical strength is crucial.

ELI LOCK

“Physical strength is important in gymnastics,” said Mansberger, a junior at Carmel High School. “Especially core strength. Even on the days we don’t practice, I am always out running or working out to continue to build my strength and endurance.”

Grey, 15, a natural on the high bar, according to his coach, said putting in the time and effort fosters success.

“Anyone can do gymnastics. You have to really go for it and do what it takes,” said Grey, a freshman at Zionsville Community High School. “When you start competing, you have to go to every practice and put in the hours. When you do that, you’ll always be getting better and improving.”

Despite their different abilities, the gymnasts share something in common — a passion for their sport.

Zionsville, fine-tuning their techniques and refining their skills.

“We practice four hours a day, five days a week,” Mansberger said.

Despite the grueling training schedule, Lock, Grey and Mansberger all say gymnastics gives them a sense of accomplishment, especially while mastering difficult moves.

“The adrenaline rush while learning new skills is my favorite part,” Grey said.

They have dedicated countless hours to training and have traveled to competitions across the U.S.

“We went to a competition this year called The Great Western in Chicago, and I won first place All-Around. The winner received a cowboy hat and a banner,” Lock said.

The team, known as Interactive Academy’s junior Olympic team, is coached by Craig Christie, who has been training the athletes since they were 5 years old.

• Junior National Championships Qualifier 2021, 2022 (Level 9 Age 13 4th All Around)

• Future Stars National Qualifier 2018

“Aaronson, Landry, and Eli all put in many years of focused hard work to get where they are now,” Christie said. “When given an instruction, they all do and attempt to understand what is being said, and they attempt to physically perform that instruction to the best of their ability.”

Christie has been instrumental in the boys success. A former gymnast, Christie has been coaching at the Interactive Academy for more than a decade and has a reputation for producing top-level gymnasts.

“In a nutshell, anyone who is willing to put in the quality hours needed in the gym can achieve success in this sport,” he said. “No amount of talent can replace a longterm commitment built on a solid work ethic and determination.”

“My next goal is to represent my college team when I graduate from Zionsville Community High School,” Grey said.

“I want to go to Stanford (University) and compete on their gymnastics team,” Lock said. “Maybe even go to the Olympics one day, that would be really cool.”

“When I graduate Carmel High School, I want to continue gymnastics in whatever college I decide to go to,” Mansberger said.

Taking stock of our lives

Stock prices go up and down based upon a panoply of factors, but a few variables are the most predictive. One, the company is earning more than others like it and there is a pipeline of opportunity that will keep the situation positive. Two, management accurately predicts how the enterprise will do quarter to quarter. When a business begins to underperform, these indicators will drive investor action. The first has a sluggish impact, often taking time for shareholders to recognize the market threat from new technologies or competition and sell off shares of companies experiencing a slow annual decline. But when the corporation misses quarterly earnings expectations, the market can respond harshly with swift authority. It seems that disappointment is more disturbing than the long, hard road to irrelevance. We might find value in imagining the investments we make in our relationships through a similar lens. Take school reunions, for example. We’ve made the investment in these people. Maybe we’ve kept up

ESSAY

and reaped something from the time spent concurrently. So, getting together seems unnecessary. Perhaps we’ve ignored them all since graduation. We’ve fully depreciated all that we once had there. Somewhere between too soon and too far, and there might be some value in reconnecting.

Depending on how we perceive our past and present, we might believe that our stock has gone up. Life, career, family, whatever the metric, has increased. Or it could be that we have begun that inevitable decline into old age and infirmity. At the launch of our productive lives, don’t we all have about the same origin point? What we do is much up to us and to circumstance. But as others see us, what do they observe? How did we hold up? Did our lives beat market expectations, or did we underdeliver on our potential?

Love Japan, hate the eel

Friends, I have recently returned from Japan! The trip was part of a 2021 grant to study World War II that I could take only now thanks to dumb COVID-19. I was super excited for the history and culture parts but also anxious about the long flight (I don’t sleep on planes) and potential food situation (I don’t do raw fish). Obviously, your gal rose above. Here’s what happened.

the amazing opportunity I’d been given, I stuffed the complaints and caught up on all the Oscar-nominated films I’d missed except for “The Whale” because there’s no crying on airplanes.

HUMOR

The Chicago-Tokyo leg was rough, I won’t lie. For starters, my husband Doo tagged along because he suffers from severe FOMO anytime anyone goes anywhere without him, and since he’s over 6-foot tall, he took the aisle seat. This meant I was relegated to the middle for 13 excruciating hours, both directions. I couldn’t stay comfortable or use the bathroom sans two minutes of decamping. Even worse, I had to have the gross chicken as Economy Row 56 means the pasta primavera is no longer available. But, recognizing

But, recognizing the amazing opportunity I’d been given, I stuffed the complaints and caught up on all the Oscar-nominated films I’d missed except for “The Whale” because there’s no crying on airplanes.

The culinary scene proved much better. Most places offered a variety of East Asian dishes, including noodles, dumplings and fried stuff, so I never went hungry. And when we finally stumbled upon Doo’s most magical of magical eateries — a tiny, 10seat hole-in-the-wall sushi joint that served whatever the catch of the day was — I did just fine with rice and soup. Apparently, I do like Japanese food!

Although I still abhor long flights and would hard pass on eel sashimi, I’d go back to Japan in a heartbeat. Peace out.

Game on — or is it?

I have been lecturing my adult son about playing so many video games. I don’t think he was listening, so next time I’ll wait until he takes his headset off.

HUMOR

I told him what a waste of time video games are, and how little you benefit intellectually. Plus, it involves absolutely no exercise. I was going to tell him all that, but I played golf all that day because carts were half price.

I have an addiction, as well. Not to golf, not to nicotine, not to prescription drugs, not to Uncle Ralph’s Hard Lemonade -- not even to pickleball (but I am getting close on this one).

I am addicted to Scrabble.

Not Words with Friends. I don’t like that game. It involves friends, which is exactly what I am trying to avoid when I seclude myself in the basement every night for an hour. I also don’t mean the board game that is up in your hall closet wedged between your winter galoshes and the Monopoly game. And I also don’t mean the Scrabble game that you flung in your basement crawl space because you’re missing a J and a V.

I’m addicted to the type of Scrabble that I downloaded on my computer. Oh, it’s the same concept, but in this case, you are playing Noah Webster and someone I assume is his obsessive-compulsive sister, Merriam.

Good luck.

In this game, you can control the difficulty, but with a degree in English, I’ll be

darned if I’ll compete as a novice or beginner. Instead, I check off expert, at which point the computer runs a program that has beaten all but 200 Scrabble players in America. I wonder who these people are and if their wives and children would like them to come up from the basement occasionally to shower.

I realize I’m in over my head. Just before writing this column, I was trounced by the computer. Here were some of the words that beat me: promial, zootier, hewable, zlote, schalene. Every time I make a word that’s worth more than 30 points, a nerdy little figure pops up on the screen and seduces me with adulation: GREAT JOB! EXCELLENT MOVE!

I’m a sucker for this because my 43rd wedding anniversary is coming up and I’ve only heard GREAT JOB maybe six times during our marriage. I can’t remember ever hearing EXCELLENT MOVE! And I’m counting our honeymoon.

My son has become concerned about my obsession. He promised me the other day that if I gave up Scrabble, he’d cut down on his video game playing.

“Just say the word, Dad,” he told me. “Just say the word and video games are history.”

The question is: What is the word? And how many points will I get?

CHS grad gets dream role in ‘The Sound of Music’

Renée La Schiazza figures she started watching “The Sound of Music” on VHS tape when she was about 2 years old.

MUSICAL

The 2012 Carmel High School graduate will play Maria in Civic Theatre’s production of “The Sound of Music,” which runs April 28 to May 13 at The Tarkington at the Center for the Performing Arts in Carmel.

“This is my favorite musical of all time,” she said. “It’s a dream role. It introduced me to musical theater and the arts.”

La Schiazza played a nun in the musical as a Clay Middle School sixth-grader.

This is the Carmel resident’s first production with Civic Theatre. It is her first performance since joining the Great American Songbook Foundation staff in February 2018. She is now the director of programs. She was a 2012 Songbook Academy participant and intern with the organization in 2013.

“Like anything, there are some challenges to overcome, but it’s really just a joy to be back in the process and back in the rehearsal room and to be inspired by ev-

eryone else in the cast,” she said.

Carmel resident Kirsten Gunlogson portrays Mother Abbess in her first role with Civic Theatre. She has performed in Rodgers and Hammerstein productions, such as “The King and I” and “Oklahoma.”

“Being new to Civic and being asked to do a show with them, I could not ask for a better production to be involved in,” said Gunlogson, who is an Indiana University graduate. “Most of my younger years I was performing operatic literature and concert music. I did some operettas and some musicial theater. I moved away from Indiana for a long time and moved back here in 2015.”

Gunlogson, a Butler University professor of voice, has performed some concerts and chamber music in the Indianapolis area. She also performs in a chamber trio, which does concerts throughout the U.S.

“It’s wonderful to get to know this company and to learn about the staff and administration,” Gunlogson said. “It’s a wonderful sense of community here. Of course, my favorite part is, I get to work with my daughter. That’s a huge treat for me as well.”

Her daughter Katherine LeFan, a 9-yearold West Clay Elementary third-grader,

plays Marta. This is LeFan’s favorite musical as well.

“It’s kind of what got me into theater,” LeFan said. “It’s a really awesome musical. I really like ‘Do-Re-Mi’ and ‘Climb Every Mountain.’”

Clay Middle School sixth-grader Addie Giesting, who plays Brigitta, said her favorite song is “The Lonely Goatherd” that they sing with Maria.

“My favorite part is I get to lay back on the bed and conduct that part,” the 12-year-old Giesting said.

“The Sound of Music” is one of the first musicals Giesting ever saw.

“My grandma is a big ‘Sound of Music’ fan and travels all across the country to see the show,” Giesting said. “It’s really special to have me in it. She is going to come all the way from Minnesota to see it.”

Giesting performed in Junior Civic’s production of “Frozen Jr” in 2021.

is set for tribute to Judy Garland

For the Center for Performing Arts Artistic Director Michael Feinstein, the annual spring concert at the Palladium in Carmel will be personal for him.

CONCERT

The concert, set for 8 p.m. April 29, will feature Feinstein’s “Get Happy: Michael Feinstein Celebrates the Judy Garland Centennial.”

Feinstein answered questions from Current about how the series of Garland performances developed.

How special was it to put together this show considering your long friendship with Garland’s daughter Liza Minnelli?

“Putting together this Garland Centennial tribute was no small feat. I felt the weight of her legend through the entire experience and longed to create something that would celebrate her in a way that she would want to be remembered and also to please her family. Liza was the person who suggested that I put together this concert as I didn’t feel I had the gravitas to properly pay tribute to Judy Garland. But she encouraged me by pointing out a number of things, one of which is that being a male that would remove some of the comparisons that would inevitably happen with a woman singing Judy Garland songs.

“Also, she pointed out that I have a very balanced perspective about her mother, and by that I mean that I understood this is a concert that should be celebratory of Judy Garland and focus on her art and the reason that she became famous and eventually a legend. It’s unseemly to focus on the tabloid aspects of anyone’s life because it’s really

beside the point. It is the extraordinary experience that people still feel when they listen to a recording by Judy Garland or see one of her films or one of her videos from her television series that still can galvanize all these years after her passing.

“I wanted to explore her history, and it turned out better than I could have possibly imagined in my wildest dreams.”

Was celebrating her 100th birthday in 2021 the first time you devoted an entire show to Garland?

“The first time I did an entire show celebrating Judy Garland was, I think, 2016, which I did with special appearances by Liza and (Garland’s daughter) Lorna (Luft) in San Francisco at Feinstein’s at the Nikko, my club in that city. Prior to that, I don’t believe I had ever sung a tribute concert to Judy Garland, even though I had conducted a symphony tribute to Judy in Pasadena with the Pasadena Pops.”

Red Barn to present 3 comedies

It will be another summer of laughs with the three scheduled shows at Red Barn Summer Theatre.

“They’re very light. It’s a nice summer selection, and even though they are all comedies, they’re all very different,” Red Barn Theatre Artistic Director Michael Taylor said. “They’re different kinds of comedy. Coming to the show you will see three very different kinds of performances.”

The first show is the English comedy “See How They Run” (June 7-18); the second show is “Boeing Boeing” (June 21-July 1); and the musical will be “Curtains, A Musical Comedy Whodunit” (July 6-16). Performances run Wednesdays through Sundays at the Red Barn Theatre in Frankfort.

Taylor will direct “Boeing Boeing” and “Curtains.”

Taylor, who has been with the company for 25 years, said Red Barn performed “Boeing Boeing” several years ago.

“Since then, the script has been updated,” Taylor said. “It was revised on Broadway, so we’re doing the new Broadway revival version.”

A French farce, “Boeing Boeing” takes place in a 1960s apartment in Paris rented by a swinging American architect, Bernard. He is engaged to three women who he only keeps apart because they are all flight attendants for different airlines. When Bernard’s tight schedule is disrupted, his juggling act turns frantic — and then disastrous.

“See How They Run” tells the rollicking tale of a conservative English bishop whose sedate home is turned upside down by the outlandish actions of an American actor and actress, four men disguised as clergymen and an old maid who has touched alcohol for the first time.

“Curtains” is set in 1959 in the Colonial Theatre in Boston. On opening night, the lead actress falls dead and a fast-talking cop, who just happens to be a musical theater aficionado, is sent to investigate.

Season and single tickets can be purchased at redbarntheatre.net starting May 8.

Farrell relishes role in premiere

Actors Theatre of Indiana co-founder Don Farrell knows there is a responsibility in portraying a real-life person.

Farrell will play the role of Bob Harrison, who created Confidential magazine, in the world premiere of “Mr. Confidential,” which starts April 28 and runs through May 14 in the Studio Theater at the Center for the Performing Arts in Carmel.

“It’s a pretty hefty role,” Farrell said. “‘I’ve got a lot of woodshedding to do to get this on to my gray matter, but the music is so much fun. The lyrics are fun, and the story is fun. To be able to roll up my sleeves and start delving into it, it’s really going to be great. I think as an actor, roles that are complex are more interesting. The human condition itself is interesting. We’re all three-dimensional beings and with a lot of history and life experience.”

Farrell said he wants to give heart to his portrayal.

“On the surface, when you read, you might think this might not be the best guy in the world,” Farrell said.

However, Farrell said Harrison built a very successful magazine and provided work for others.

“He was an amazing, interesting guy, and I’m excited to bring him to life on the Studio Theater stage,” he said. “There is a responsibility to not paint them as a two-dimensional character. You want to see all the sides of this person. It’s exciting to find stuff that might not be on the page, but in the rehearsal process you are able to explore.”

Since the reading, Farrell said the production team has written some new scenes, added songs and adapted songs,

“(The audience) are going to get all the songs they originally fell in love with, and they are going to get even more in this world premiere,” he said.

Farrell said ATI has created new works before but nothing to this magniture in its 18-year history.

Soprano embraces new role

Soprano Anne Fuchs is quite familiar with “The Magic Flute.”

OPERA

“I used to sing the role of Papageno in Germany in this opera, so it’s very near to my heart,” Fuchs said. “In the German opera system, you sort of perform a role for a year or two. You’ll just do it again and again and again. So, it’s one of those operas that I know inside and out and deeply, deeply love.”

The Indianapolis resident will play the role of the First Lady in Indianapolis Opera’s production of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s “The Magic Flute” May 5-7 at The Toby Theater at Newfields in Indianapolis.

This is Fuchs’ first performance on the main stage with Indianapolis Opera. She had performed in outreach concerts in the community with the company.

Fuchs, 37, lived in Germany for 2 1/2 years, leaving in 2015.

“This was my first role in Germany, and I had to do all the dialogue within the first

two weeks of setting foot there,” she said. “It’s kind of a crazy story. The manager of a theater asked, ‘Do you know the role of Papageno?’ I said, ‘Yes.’ She said, ‘Great, you go on in two days.’ The only problem was I didn’t know the role. I just knew it was my chance. So, I drove myself crazy over the next 48 hours just learning that role, which is kind of a hard thing to do. I don’t know if Anne in her 30s could now pull that off, but in my 20s I could. I got it together and had to also learn the German dialogue and speak it convincingly and with a good German accent.”

The First Lady is one of the three ladies in service of the evil Queen of the Night.

“This opera is just so incredible because it’s basically about this duality of good and evil,” Fuchs said. “The bad guys seem like good guys, and then the good guys seem like bad guys. It’s just confusing knowing which is which.”

Fuchs also played the role of Pamina in a production in the U.S.

“She is a delightful character as well,” Fuchs said. “She’s pure of heart.”

Farm beefs up operations

Indiana may be known to be a pork-producing state, but there is quite a bit of great beef to be found in the Crossroads of America. Look no farther than Howell Farms in Middletown in rural Delaware County.

FOOD

The Howell family has been farming the amber waves of grain for nearly 50 years. Their primary focus is corn, soy, wheat, barley and tomatoes, and now with a touch of beef!

Siblings Adam and Aaron Howell took up the family mantle to become the second generation in the Howell family to farm the Indiana countryside. The brothers are also the driving force behind the farm’s relatively new grass-fed beef program.

“We want to be good stewards of the family business and the land that it is based on,” Adam said. “By combining vegetable and grain production, cover cropping and then rotational livestock grazing, we can improve soil health.”

Ultimately, soil health drives the quality of the products they produce.

At present, the Howell’s have 22 head

of cattle that rotate across different pastures each day. The cattle is 100 percent grass-fed and the beef is processed under USDA inspection. Customers can shop their assortment of beef products online at Farmersprovisions.com. The website provides all the current offerings as well as plenty of information about the Howell family, the farm and the beef operation.

Customers are encouraged to shop the beef assortments by the box. Free shipping to 26 states is offered with the purchase of any assortment box. Customers can also shop by the cut and build their own box to have shipped. All current and future shipping destinations can be found on the website.

Customers can expect their product to arrive cold and safe to be put back into the freezer or thawed out to cook immediately. For more, visit farmersprovisions.com.

A visit to Masada National Park

Today, in our continuing visit to Israel and the Palestinian Territories, we come to Masada National Park in Israel, about 45 miles south of Jericho.

TRAVEL

During his reign as king of Judea from about 36 B.C. to 4 B.C., Herod the Great was a prodigious builder. The artificial harbor at Caesarea Maritima and the Temple Mount in Jerusalem were architectural wonders. But none of Herod’s many building projects have had the lasting influence of Masada, rising 1,300 feet above the Judean Desert. At the top of this rocky plateau, Herod built an elaborate city, complete with Roman baths, an underground reservoir holding 1 million gallons of water and a three-tier summer palace overlooking the Dead Sea. The only way up to the heavily fortified complex was along a narrow “snake path.”

In A.D. 66, Jewish revolutionaries captured Masada from the Romans. They and the families that joined them held out against a Roman siege until engineers built a ramp to the top and soldiers broke down the walls with a battering ram. Both the site of the Roman encampment and the remains of the ramp can still be seen from the snake path. According to Josephus, the first-century Jewish historian, the entering Roman soldiers found all but seven of the 960 holdouts dead, killed by their own hands to avoid being taken alive.

Today, a metal plaque at Masada reads: “What of us? What is our Masada? How much of all this will we take with us, and how much of our own will we add?” For a time, members of the Israeli military walked up the snake path to be sworn in among the ruins, pledging that “Masada shall not

fall again.” Masada, now also reachable by cable car, is a powerful reminder of the indomitable Jewish spirit and the universal yearning of people to be free.

I’ve written before about mondegreens — music lyrics people mishear. Many of you mistake Elton John’s “Tiny Dancer” line as “Hold me closer, Tony Danza.” Today’s column is along those lines.

Now that you’re refreshed on mondegreens, I’m sure you’re also aware of homophones, two or more words that sound the same but have different meanings and spellings. Examples include peace/piece and whole/hole.

With these in mind, you’re all set for today’s topic, oronyms. This sounds like a term for different names of gold. In fact, oronym is a recently coined term by author Gyles Brandreth. Brandreth, who is famous for being a past European Monopoly champion and president of the Association of British Scrabble Player, is also a witty linguist. He came up with the term “oronym” in his 1980 book, “The Joy of Lex.”

Oronyms, which are also known as continunyms or sliceonyms, are phrases or sentences that sound the same but are spelled differently. The difference between oronyms and homophones is that oronyms almost always cause confusion and lead to misunderstandings. Let’s get into some examples, shall we?

When it comes to my 9-year-old son, he

has seasonal spring allergies, and he fancies himself an expert on many subjects. I could rightly say, “You’ll be amazed by the stuffy nose.” However, if I want to declare him a harbinger of facts, I could also say, “You’ll be amazed by the stuff he knows.” The two sentences are true, and they sound identical. But their meanings are different. Here are two similar-sounding sentences that have incredibly different meanings. Consider “The drunk man fell into oblivion.” Now think about “The drunk man fell into a Bolivian.”
