Education

2 seek reelection to ZCS school board By Derek Fisher • derek@youarecurrent.com

Zionsville School Board Trustee Rob Wingerter wants to continue to provide sound fiscal management, stability and a long-term perspective in the ever-changing landscape of public education – to that end, he announced his intention to seek reelection on July 9. Wingerter currently serves as board president, a position he has held nine times since joining in 1992. During his tenure, the district has grown from less than 2,000 students to an enrollment of more than 5,000. “My background in the areas of tax, accounting and law provides me with the tools to guide Zionsville Schools forward,” said Wingerter, “and continue in their path as the best place to nurture and grow our greatest assets – our children.” Wingerter is a senior partner at Ernst & Young, LLP, an international accounting and consulting firm. He has served as office managing partner of the Indianapolis office and the area director of tax and consults with many of the largest companies in the state about their tax matters. Wingerter is both a CPA and an attorney and a member of all local, state and national accreditation associations. Wingerter also currently serves as president of the University of Indianapolis Board of Trustees and as a board member for the United Way of

Jane Burgess also announced on July 9 that she is seeking a second term on the Zionsville School Board. In announcing her intention to run, Burgess stressed that many financial challenges still remain for the school district and she values the opportunity to find solutions which will serve both the schools and the Zionsville

community. “Our school corporation has continued to excel despite many economic challenges,” Burgess noted. “I look forward to continuing to work with members of the school system and community to make decisions that reflect fiscal discipline while keeping Zionsville Community Schools an academic leader in the state.” Burgess highlighted several successful initiatives from her first term in office including: playing an instrumental role in negotiating the St. Vincent sponsorship for Zionsville Community Schools, successfully passing the debt restructure, refinancing existing bonds to save more than $10 million and improving the relationship between the Zionsville Board of Trustees and the Zionsville Town Council. Burgess currently serves as vice-president of the board, and has previously served as secretary and as the board representative to the Indiana School Boards Association. She and her husband, Claude, have two children.

Plain Talk

A summer of promise Commentary by Ward Degler It has definitely been a summer of promise. The weatherman has promised rain at least a dozen times, and the sky has darkened and made the same promise almost as often. Once, at three in the afternoon, the sky turned especially angry toward the northwest, dark and threatening. Lightning flashed, thunder rumbled. I stood in the middle of my brown and wasted yard, holding my breath, waiting hopefully, believing the promise. Five minutes later the clouds evaporated, the sun reappeared and the temperature roared back toward triple digits. Another time in the middle of the night the air crackled with lightning and the rumble of distant thunder woke me. For several minutes I lay there listening for rain. Then the moon re-emerged and I went back to sleep, another promise of rain unkept. The next day we got a sprinkle. I counted 25 drops. Sadly, not much promise there. I still water the green beans, tomatoes and

squash every day. They promise to keep trying. I gave up on the flowerbed long ago. That small promise of color and fragrance was short-lived. I no longer bother to bring in the cushions from the patio furniture. I promise them they won’t get rained on. I drive through the countryside and see the corn, short and stunted, tasseling to pollinate ears that haven’t formed. Much of this year’s crop will be chopped into silage. The soybeans look a little better, still showing some promise if we get rain soon. I walk around the yard and check the barn. The lawnmower sits idle. It hasn’t been used for two months. Before going to bed I turn on the Weather Channel. Wouldn’t you know it – they promise more of the same.

Habitat for Humanity begins Wounded Warrior build By Derek Fisher • derek@youarecurrent.com

Earlier this month, under the most brutal weather condition in years, Habitat for Humanity volunteers began work on the Wounded Warrior build in Advance, Ind. “It was a very difficult week,” said Steve Furste of Boone County Habitat for Humanity. “With temperatures around 100 degrees all week, our volunteers got the foundation done. This meant digging, pouring footers, laying block, and mixing concrete – hard work under normal conditions.” The local Habitat for Humanity affiliate is partnering with Homes for Wounded Warriors and the Advance build will be the first in Indiana for a wounded soldier returning from combat. This particular project will be for Marine Sgt. Jessie James, his wife and two young children. James is currently being rehabilitated at a California hospital after suffering severe head trauma and multiple concussions while serving as a combat engineer. “We are really excited to be able to help a young soldier that has served his country,” said Furste. “It is a great way to say ‘Thank you’ for what he has done for all of us back home. There are so many veterans living in and around Boone County and we have had a great response from so many who want to help in

Bed and Biscuit takes over familiar location By Derek Fisher • derek@youarecurrent.com John Rose is the new owner of Bed and Biscuit Kennels, 3809 W. SR 32 in Jolietville, a business that’s well known in the community but has had many different iterations. “For the last 13 years, it has been continuously operated as a boarding kennel,” he said of the facility, which he took possession of in April and re-opened in May. “It’s had a mixed history. It was built in the 1950s, was originally a breeding kennel and then was a dance hall. But recently, it’s been a full-time kennel.” Rose said his operation is a boarding kennel for dogs as well as cats. Sitting on five acres, Bed "Shadow" enjoys the Bed and Biscuit dog park.

A Beautiful Ride Zionsville woman parlays equine passion into prestigious competition By Derek Fisher • derek@youarecurrent.com Elizabeth “Liz” Johnson has spent most of her life competing. She’s ridden horseback, snow skied and swum, more often than not for the sole purpose of finishing first. Usually, she’s realized that goal; the irony is, however, that for the last 35 years Johnson has been happy to finish last. Why? For the sake of those in need and the town of Zionsville, for starters. What form does it take? The Traders Point Hunt Charity Horse Show and Country Fair. “Charity has been part of the show from the start,” Johnson, as elegant and charming a woman as one could meet, said. “We’ve given our profits to many charities over the years; we hope everybody benefits from it.” Johnson, I came to understand over the course of a scorching morning on the sprawling land upon which the yearly spectacle is contested, is its founder, having created the event in the late 1970s. Now in its 35th year, the gathering encompasses a week’s worth of activity and

Schedule of special events Aug. 5 – “Symphony Under the Stars” Aug. 9 – “Garden Party for Riley Day” Aug. 10 – “Paws to Applause Dog Show” and “Marty and Russell Fortune Jr. Memorial $30,000 Grand Prix” Aug. 11 – “Kids’ Day” Aug. 12 – “$60,000 Grand Prix of Indianapolis” is among the most prestigious on the riding circuit. This year’s event will bring 800 horses and nearly 15,000 people to the Zionsville area. The effect of such a large number of people on Zionsville is not lost on John Johnson, Liz’s son and caretaker of the land. “There is an enormous economic benefit,” he said. “People come from all over America, and they have to have places to stay and eat. Local stores’ business spikes up. It’s a moneymaker for the local economy.” Dollars aside, the most compelling aspect of the event is Liz. She and her husband Sylvester – or simply “Ves” – moved to Zionsville from Indianapolis in 1948, and pieced plots of land together bit by bit. They called it Wild Air Farms, in honor of Ves’ grandmother’s land in California. By the time the soil had a name, however, Liz already had made a name for herself. “I always wanted to ride,” she said. “When I was young, my brother had a horse he couldn’t ride well and he gave her to me. I rode her at the Devon (Penn.) horse show when I was 17, and placed 4th out of 68 riders. From then on I

thought, ‘This is it, I need to keep showing.’” And show, she did. She was twice a winner at Madison Square Garden, was featured in the August 1951 issue of Town and Country magazine and had a horse, Super Flash, inducted into the National Show Hunter Hall of Fame. Along the way Johnson also picked up her snow ski instructor’s license, won a few medals in that sport, landed in the background of a Sports Illustrated cover – “I was just on roller skates in the background,” she understates – and continued to train horses in Zionsville. Then, an idea hit. “I had the vision of having a show here,” she said. “I was showing across the country, and we had this beautiful area here. We started with two rings for hunters and had a cornfield next to them, so we decided to have jumpers as well. One thing led to another and now we have four rings.” That growth has allowed the charity aspect to tick up as well. This year’s event will benefit the Riley Children’s Foundation, and previously profits have gone to organizations like Little Red Door, the Humane Society and others. John Johnson is quick to point out that the event is good for families, as well. “It’s very family-oriented,” he said. “We’ve got pony rides, bounce houses – there’s something for everyone. You get to see something you don’t get to see very often.” Show week will find Liz, who last rode in 2005, playing hostess. She will break from her routine of swimming 30 laps a day in her 75foot pool to mingle with friends she sees but once a year. “I wish I could participate, but I ride mentally,” she said. “I welcome the exhibitors; it’s so much fun to have friends come. I don’t have any particular thing I have to do, I just enjoy being here. It’s thrilling.”

VIEWS

Opinion

Brightpoint HQ

It is our position that the pending sale of locally-based cell phone distributor Brightpoint is a significant concern for the entire Central Indiana region. Certainly protection of jobs for the 1,300 workers in Plainfield is paramount, but even if headcount remains steady the loss will be felt throughout the community. Corporate headquarters provide much more than just a sense of local pride. Support of local philanthropy and leadership in community activities are concentrated around a company’s decision makers. When those decisions are being made in other states, as will happen when the Brightpoint sale is completed, corporate engagement will inevitably diminish. Even if most local jobs are initially preserved, the longer-term trend can be expected to disfavor Central Indiana. No doubt this area offers a competitive location for distribution hubs, but just as certainly Brightpoint CEO Bob Laikin wanted his facilities to be close to him and to benefit his community. Our home-court advantage will be absent when future decisions of this sort are being made in California. Mr. Laikin and his team are to be commended for the business they built and the local support they’ve shown. We hope that they continue to be involved and advocate on behalf of Central Indiana while other entrepreneurs fill any voids left by Brightpoint’s HQ relocation.

Adversity can’t slow restaurateur Mullen

Negative space Commentary by Terry Anker Decorators refer to it as negative space – the absence of something, often clutter, which in its void makes apparent the more sublime elements of the arrangement. The point is that the deficiency of distraction allows one to focus on the essential elements of our environs with greatest clarity. Such is the case with the emerging understanding of my eldest. Now participating in a program through his school that arranges and chaperones an annual exchange program with its sister school in Japan, he finds himself 16 years old and now residing with a host family half way around the globe. Yet thanks to the wonders of Internet communication and ubiquitous Wi-Fi, we are able to solicit a daily update on his travails. Food is first on his list of daily observations – for anyone who has experience with teenage boys this comes as no surprise. Then comes comment on architecture, culture and people. But this week, he Tweeted something to the world (a Tweet is

an Internet-posted comment that is visible to all of his followers and to millions more who prowl these locales) that highlights the lucidity that only comes from great distance. He discovered, as many have before him, that one travels to learn about other countries, but instead learns as much or more about their own. I am anxious to discover what he’s garnered. Did he find a new understanding of American exceptionalism; or instead, did he find an ancient culture more refined and transcendent than our own? Perhaps the depth of his insight will be limited to noticing that the Japanese eat more fish and less beef. Regardless, he is learning that much is gained from perspective. It inspires me to get outside of myself and try to gain a little distance from my own beliefs. Wish me luck. Terry Anker is an associate editor of Current Publishing, LLC.

With recovery from last month’s fire well under way, Patrick’s will rise again. We’re happy to be able to write that. Owner Patrick Mullen hasn’t let the incident get him down. Quite the contrary, he’s working hard to be able to reopen the Main Street eatery, and he has found time to be active in the community, including his catering of this month’s Zionsville Chamber of Commerce’s First Tuesday event. His usual strong presence at the weekly farmers market continues unabated. It’s heartening and a great lesson for the rest: Just keep plugging away. ••• Through our untrained political eyes, we view President Barack Obama actually defining what challenger Mitt Romney represents for and to the American people. If that truly is the case, Romney had best assert himself, or it’ll be lights out before the game ever begins. It’s something for all of us to watch. Tell us if you disagree. ••• A friend recently told us his daughter is fired up for school, which, for her, begins next Monday. She attends a private school, but still, whatever happened to summer? Back in the day, which is how it should be today, we were out the first Friday in June, back the day after Labor Day. If this kid we know wanted to go to summer camp, for instance, she would have barely made it to the fourth of the traditional eight weeks – given most camps’ calendars.

Sorry for the name calling, not stance Commentary by Danielle Wilson

Wow. I just returned from vacation where I was thankfully unable to access my e-mail, or should I say “hate mail.” I knew I’d upset some folks when I wrote a column on immunizations, I just didn’t think the response would be quite so intense. I haven’t received this much backlash since my controversial articles on homeschooling in 2009. [See Current archives for some fun reads!] I suppose when I attack parenting choices, however, I deserve it. That being said, I won’t apologize for my opinions on immunizations, though I will say I’m sorry for branding people who choose not to immunize as “idiots.” That was an unprofessional comment based purely on emotion. You certainly have the right to choose what’s best for your children, and like I said in the article, I support you 100 percent in that capacity. I don’t agree with your choice at all, but that doesn’t give me the right to call you an idiot, at least not in public. Most of the hate mail was from parents of autistic children, so let me address them first. I personally know several families with an autistic child. It is a devastating diagnosis and can drastically alter the lives of everyone involved. I don’t blame you for looking for a reason for why your child is different. I am surprised, however, that so many of you truly believe there is a global conspiracy among governments and pharmaceutical companies to not only suppress

any connection between immunizations and autism, but to possibly bring back the plague for population control and profit. Really? Clearly I have misjudged the CDC and Eli Lilly. And although most of the physicians and nurses who wrote in agreed with me, I did receive some negative comments from medical professionals, saying I knew nothing of science. “Why do you even care if your kids are vaccinated?” I care because even vaccinated children can get sick (that much I do know), and I really don’t want my household to be quarantined for a month because some unvaccinated kid brought measles to the local elementary school. Finally, let me remind all of you who constantly complain about my lack of professional journalism that I’M NOT A PROFESSIONAL JOURNALIST, nor do I claim to be! My column is posted under opinion or humor, not hard news. I write about what I think as a resident of Indianapolis suburbia. And contrary to what several readers believe, I don’t wear Prada or drive a Cadi, nor do I channel Hitler in my free time. I’m just an average working mom who frequently suffers from word vomit, the content of which occasionally warrants some hate mail. Peace out.

Carpet color options: beige, beige or beige Commentary by Dick Wolfsie We’ve always been envious of friends who have done it in every room of their house. So, we finally decided it was now or never: we were going to re-carpet our entire home. We had successfully avoided this huge hassle in the past by moving just as the carpet had worn out our welcome. Early in our relationship, we once moved when the fridge needed to be defrosted. We just couldn’t be bothered. We knew our carpet was dirty and disgusting when we started wiping our feet before going outside. Also, when friends came over for a cocktail, we told everyone it was a shag carpet. It really wasn’t. It just looked that way because we’ve had dogs and cats for 32 years. Sometimes I walked out of my bathroom while brushing my teeth in order to watch TV in my home office. There were a few toothpaste globs on the floor. I scraped them up now and then. They looked a lot like dinner mints. Once we made the decision to go ahead with the project, I stood at the bottom of the stairs and scanned the house. The immensity of the task overwhelmed me. I wondered if we really had to do the first and second floor at the same time. “Two stories in one day is a lot to cover, Mary Ellen.” “Isn’t that the attitude that got you demoted at Channel 8?”

When it was time to pick the color, Mary Ellen pretended she wanted my input, so she flung some carpet samples on the floor. “Help me decide between the bistro, buff, desert sun, kangaroo, ecru, fallow, fawn, russet, sepia, moose antler, tawny, sienna and Sahara. I want something that won’t stain when you walk into the living room eating your breakfast cereal.” “Do they have something in a nice Wheaties shade?” “Dick, this is hard work. Which color do you like?” “OK, beige.” “They’re all beige.” “See, that’s what made it so tough. Time for a beer.” Because I am cheap, I was looking for ways to cut corners. (Actually, the carpet installers do that for you at no extra charge.) The idea I came up with was to take the dozens of carpet samples we had and use them to create a patchwork of colors that would cover one entire room. Mary Ellen said that was the stupidest idea I ever had in our entire relationship. She’s so young to be losing her memory.

High school never ends Commentary by Mike Redmond

The evening ended as they always ended, with Monty Jo Strawser and me sitting on the sidelines making fun of things. We met where we left off 40 years ago, in the cafeteria, a room that somehow got smaller over the years. I remember it as being cavernous when I was a sophomore, so big that the entire student body could have lunch at the same time. It never occurred to me that this was possible not because the room was large, but because the student body was so small. There we sat and pretended to be certain of one another’s identities without looking at each other’s name tags while awaiting our first big event of the day: An aerial photograph of our class arranged in a “72,” our graduating year. This was a feature of our yearbook and the reunion committee thought it would be fun to do it again. Of course, the reunion committee did not know that it was going to be about 900 degrees that day, or that many of our classmates chose to skip the get-together in favor of the evening festivities at the Moose Lodge. The 2012 “72” was looking a little sparse, so the organizers started filling the gaps with spouses, dogs, strangers, whatever they could find. And then a small plane piloted by one of our classmates buzzed us and my brother P.D. made the pictures.

One of the photos appears to have me making an impolite hand gesture at my brother. Of course, I would never do such a thing, despite what he told Mom. I blame Photoshop. The evening began with a short remembrance of classmates who have graduated ahead of the rest of us – a bittersweet moment indeed – and then a short program emceed by one of the class smart alecks who shall remain nameless. We played Class Trivia – you know, questions like “What was our class motto?” Turns out I had it wrong all these years. I thought it was Lather, Rinse, Repeat. After that came dinner and then dancing and that brings us back to Monty Jo and me on the sidelines. The girls were dancing in a circle. The guys were standing around looking for their openings. And Monty Jo and I were in our customary place, pointing and laughing -- not so much at the people as at the fact that our dances were exactly like this 40 years ago. The only difference is this time we didn’t have a basketball game beforehand. Ah, high school. Frank Zappa was right. It never really ends, does it?

Tips for managing prescription medications Commentary by Mary Jean Vorwald It’s a fact of life. As we age, it’s likely we will need medications to maintain good health. While prescription drugs prolong life by controlling chronic diseases such as heart disease, diabetes and cancer, it’s important to learn how to take them properly. Effectively managing your prescriptions not only improves compliance, but also helps prevent over-medication and harmful drug interactions. Taking medications, especially more than once daily, can be challenging. That’s why good medication management begins by partnering with your primary care doctor and a reliable local pharmacist. These professionals will help oversee your prescriptions and answer questions. Other tips for managing your prescriptions are: • Maintain an up-to-date list of all current medications. Include the drug name, dosage, frequency and diagnosis. Ensure at least one family member has a copy of the list. • Bring your medication list or, preferably, all of your pill bottles (including over-thecounter medications and supplements) to all doctor appointments, including specialist visits (eye doctor, dermatologist, etc.). • Notify your primary care doctor whenever medications change (for example, after

visiting a specialist, hospitalization or surgery). Your pharmacist can also help in this situation to prevent duplication or drug interactions. • Over-the-counter medications, supplements and vitamins affect the body even if they are labeled “natural” or “organic.” When taken with certain prescription medications, over-the-counter products can cause side effects or dangerous interactions. Always check with your doctor or pharmacist before taking any new over-the-counter medicines or supplements. • Watch for drug confusion with sound-alike names, look-alike pills and combination medications. Ideally, you should know both the brand name and generic name for each medication you are taking. • Work with your doctor and/or pharmacist to develop a schedule for taking medications and supplements. Some may need to be taken in the morning or with meals. Then use medication organizers, such as pill boxes, to make your regimen easier.

Compression of realities Commentary by David Cain

Here’s a stunning reality, the iPhone is only five years old. The first version, now considered a relic, was introduced on January 9, 2007, and offered for sale on June 29, 2007. That little smart phone that now boasts sales in excess of 146 million units just turned five. In March of 2012, Encyclopedia Britannica announced it would not produce any new print editions. The 2010 edition is the last to be printed, ending a legacy that had continued since the first edition made its way to an information-starved world in 1768. Did Google replace Britannica’s print version or is it actually Wikipedia that stepped in the way? Regardless, the encyclopedias that graced the shelves of my childhood are now dusty artifacts for garage sales and antique malls perched next to the rotary dial phone. It’s hard to believe how quickly ‘normal’ gets

redefined. It is like raising kids, when you are around them you don’t realize how big they are getting. Before you know it, they are adults. Our realities are compressing to the point where we’ve lost all perspective of the past. Our reality is evolving at the speed of technology, creating an elusive normality that once provided comfort. The key is to stay in the today. The fundamentals haven’t changed. People must still have meaningful relationships and establish connections. People still rely on other people. People still need products and services that add value. People still need to have human connections. People still need you but they are just expecting you to offer yourself faster and better than before.

The first half of the 2012 finished strong in the housing market. In the first six months of this year, 13,048 homes pended in Central Indiana – an increase of 13.4 compared to the same time period last year, according to statistics compiled by F.C. Tucker Company. Of those homes, 2,178 pended in June. Though the region is faring well, occasional fluctuations can still be expected throughout individual counties. • In Boone County, 488 homes pended in the first six months of this year, which is an increase of 13.8 percent compared to the same time period last year. • Home sales are down in Zionsville. In June 2012, 34 homes pended – a decrease of 10 homes compared to June 2011. • Home prices remain competitive in Zionsville. The average sales price in June 2012 was $401,298 – up 25.3 percent compared to the same time last year. • Of the pended homes in June 2012, five were priced $500,000 to $999,999; 18 were priced $300,000 to $499,999; and 11 were priced at $299,999 or less. • Inventory continues to shrink in Zionsville. In June 2012, 247 homes were available for home buyers – 53 fewer homes than in June 2011. Though Boone County experienced a decline in sales, the outlook across much of Central Indiana looks promising. Increased home sales and rising prices, combined with fewer homes on the market, are encouraging signs of a gradually recovering housing market across Central Indiana.

Wine Recommendation: 2010 Hubert Veneau Pouilly Fumé ($17) When serving this dish as a side for a more savory entrée, it is best for the wine to bridge the gap rather than highlight the side dish alone. This is particularly helpful when the dish is seasoned with balsamic herbs. Available in specialty stores. 18 | July 24, 2012

Design

The foundation of good design Commentary by Vicky Earley

The basic rules of proportion and scale are unchanging. They are reinterpreted according to the needs of the time. I like simplicity and I believe in restraint. Above all, there should be harmony-of proportion, line, color, and feeling. The most important element in decorating is the relationship between objects- in size, form, texture, color, and meaning. None of these is in good taste in itself but only in relationship to where it has been placed and what purpose it is to serve. – Eleanor McMillen Brown Interior design is about the big picture and the big picture works when it is the result of a carefully planned compilation of elements and principles. When the principles are spurned,, there is a very good chance that a space will appear haphazard and chaotic. These principles are basic to all good design and must be treated with the respect they are due and should be altered only with care. • Balance: You will most likely feel if a room is unbalanced. Balance simply refers to the visual equilibrium of a room which is achieved by the placement of objects within a room according to visual weight. • Shape, color and texture all help to determine their visual weight.. • Focus: This refers to the direction the eye travels and remains as it first enters a space. A multitude of focal points in a room make it quite uncomfortable as there is no place for the eye to rest.

• Harmony: This is achieved when the elements of a room work together to form a visually pleasing cohesiveness with the proper balance of variety and unity. Harmony in design is similarity of components or objects looking like these belong together. This unity can be defined as a design thread that tells a story from one element to another. • Proportion: Ah, Proportion and his best friend Scale . This is something the real estate agent fails to mention when showing you a home with a two story great room. Technically, proportion refers to how the elements within an object relate to the object as a whole while scale relates to the size of an object compared to the space in which it is located. • Rhythm: The rhythm of a room controls the visual flow around a room. Rhythm allows the eyes to move around from one object to another and creates a harmonious atmosphere in a room. A family home that incorporates these is not unlike the paints that an artist uses in the creation of a breathtaking work of art…each color and brushstroke plays off another color within the guidelines of design principle. The result is a warm, inviting space for living.

Prepaing yourself for a platform switch Commentary by Ken Colburn

I’m strongly considering a jump from my iPhone to the Samsung Galaxy S III but concerned about getting all my stuff over. Is this an easy thing to do or is it going to be a nightmare? - Glen The smartphone battle has definitely heated up with the release of Samsung’s flagship Galaxy S III and I'm hearing this from more iPhone users than with any previous Android phone release. The primary concerns for most users are the apps, music, contacts and photos; the more of these items you have the more complex it can be. If you don’t really have any apps or music that you care about, then the transition would be rather painless and quick using an app called ‘Bump’ (http://bu.mp) that is available for both platforms. You simply install the app on both phones, select all your contacts or just the ones you want to transfer and then ‘bump’ the phones together to transfer them.  It’s very easy to setup and transfer, so this won’t require any real technical skills to execute. ‘Bumping’ your photos takes a little more time because there is no ‘select all’ option, but think of it as an opportunity to get rid of those less desirable photos.  One downside to this method is that Bump compresses the photos to transfer them, so if you want them in the original resolution, I’d use Picasa to import them (& any videos you shot) from the iPhone. Once you have them on your computer, you can decide

whether you want to transfer them to the Galaxy S III or just archive them on your computer to keep from filling up your new phone with old photos (you can always upload them to Picasa Web Albums if you want access to them from the S III withouttaking up storage). If music is important, it gets a little more complicated. The complexity of the transfer will be based on whether you purchased the music from the iTunes Store or transferred the songs from your own CDs. Any music you transferred (or ripped) from your own CDs can be transfered directly to the S III, but any songs you purchased from the iTunes Store will have copy protection that will require you to take some extra steps to convert the files first. The free method (and the most time consuming) is to burn the songs to an audio CD (like for an old CD player in your car) then rip them back into your iTunes library. If your library is too big or you just don’t want to go through all those steps, you can use a program called Sound Taxi ( http://goo.gl/i6ZDj ) that will convert the files from the M4P format to a standard MP3 music file. Once you have your music files converted, you can manually copy them over or use a free app called Easy Phone Tunes ( http://easyphonetunes.com ) which makes the transfer process pretty simple as long as your entire music library does not exceed the storage on the S III.

Masada

Mountaintop experiences Commentary by Don Knebel For Herod the Great, the king of Judea at Jesus’ birth, Masada was a place to keep cool in the summer. For the people of modern Israel, Masada is a constant reminder of the courage of their ancestors and a symbol of their own determination. During his reign from about 36 to 4 B.C., Herod was a prodigious builder trying to improve the image of his little kingdom in the eyes of his bosses in Rome. The accomplishments of Herod’s engineers were remarkable. But none of Herod’s many building projects have had the lasting influence of Masada, rising 1,300 feet above the desert. At the top of this plateau, Herod built an elaborate city, complete with Roman baths, an underground reservoir and a summer palace overlooking the Dead Sea. The only way up to the fortified complex was a narrow “snake path.” In 66 A.D., Jewish revolutionaries captured Masada from the Romans. They and the families that joined them held out against a Roman siege

for seven years until engineers built an earthen ramp to the top and soldiers broke down the walls. According to Josephus, the first-century Jewish historian, the entering soldiers found all but seven of the 960 holdouts dead, killed by their own hands to avoid being taken alive. Today, a 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?” Since the time of Moshe Dayan, new members of the Israeli military have walked the snake path for a swearing-in ceremony among the ruins, which ends with a pledge that “Masada shall not fall again.” For everyone visiting Masada, the mountain top, now reachable by cable car, is a powerful reminder of the indomitable Jewish spirit and the universal yearning of people to be free.

“Current. It really works.”

Drought: Damage control Commentary by Chris Arney

Although rainfall has been sporadic, we are on track for one of the driest seasons that any of us have seen. It is a fact that many lawns and landscapes are suffering and their overall health and appearance will continue to decline. As the water company urges us all to conserve water, we are limited on what can be done. As you look around, you will notice that even well established lawns, shrubs, and trees are declining rapidly. Most lawns will require some level of rejuvenation this fall. Damage will include localized patches of dead turf and widespread thinning out of turf grass. Reseeding these areas will be standard treatment. Depending on the extent of the damage, additional work may be warranted. Core aeration, additional top soil, tilling, and re-grading, all will be options to consider. Late August will be the timing of most of this work. There will also be an opportunity for some late fall (November) seeding as well. Plan on budget-

ing some time and money for later this summer to repair your lawn. Landscape trees, shrubs, and perennials are also taking a beating. Wilting, leaf loss, and browning are all signs of lack of water. The best use of water in the current conditions is “slow deep watering”. Soaker hoses, tree bags, and a slow trickle of water from a hose are all good methods. Use a nail to punch a hole in the bottom of a five gallon bucket. Fill it with water and place it next to trees and shrubs for another slow watering option. All of these options will help to control the damage brought on by this season’s weather. Some plants will die, some will struggle for years, and others will bounce back healthier than ever.

New cosmetic kitchen remodel Commentary by Larry Greene

ORIGINAL KITCHEN: This home is located in the Huntington Chase subdivision on the west side of Carmel. The current owners built the home in 1996 as a spec home with the current kitchen as is. REASONS FOR REMODELING: According to the owner, “We remodeled the kitchen for three reasons: the lighting, the flooring and the storage space. The original lighting was not adequate, as there was no lighting over the peninsula or under cabinet lighting, so it was very hard to work in the kitchen. The original tile floors were cracking and the grout was coming out. It turns out that one side of the kitchen was 5/8” lower than the other side. The subflooring was installed incorrectly and making the tile crack. Finally, the existing kitchen storage was minimal, so I had to store many of my kitchen items in the basement. There was a pantry, but there was no space for pots and pans etc.” MORE STORAGE WITH CABINETRY: The homeowner is thrilled with the additional storage space. “My favorite part of the remodel is the cabinets we had built. I wanted more storage in the kitchen, but I did not want to have another piece of furniture that did not fit with the kitchen. Having the cabinetry built to be cohesive with the other cabinets gave me the look and storage that I wanted. We also really like the addition of the bench, coat hooks and shelves in the entryway to the kitchen. It has made a big impact on the way we live in the house, as 24 | July 24, 2012

Landscape Patio Before we have a place for coats, gloves, family calendar and papers. All of the additional storage now allows me to keep kitchen essentials in the kitchen, rather than the basement. FINISH DETAILS: The homeowner also enjoys the new functionality. “The granite countertops give me additional serving space, while allowing me the peninsula for prep space. We added many electrical outlets to the new cabinet areas too, which help a great deal when we are entertaining. The new peninsula and under-cabinet lighting has greatly improved the kitchen as well. It is much easier to work in there, and the area is much less dreary.” Larry Greene is the president of Case Design/Remodeling, a full-service design/build firm serving Hamilton County.
