For Susan Schube, co-owner of Avalon Jewelers and Gallery in Zionsville, jewelry is more than just wearable art. downtown “Think about it, you usually buy jewelry to remember a special occasion,” Schube said. So her job is to find or create something that is truly a wearable memory. In the 23 years the store has been at 275 S. Main St., Schube and business partner Terry Johnson have been making memories with their unique selection of colored gemstones and custom-made pieces. “It doesn’t matter your budget. If you tell me you only have so much money to spend, then I’ll help you create something beautiful in that price range,” she said. Not only that, but Schube will also educate you on the different types of gems they have to offer and how to take care of them. After being in the jewelry business for decades, Schube said her customers have truly become friends and some, even like family. “We’ve been here so long that now children, who could barely see over the counter, are coming in to look for their engagement rings,” she said. It’s this passion for people and jewelry that make Avalon’s custom pieces so special. Most recently, Schube created a memorial pendant for a mother who lost her daughter in a car accident. She took the gemstone from a ring the girl used to wear and surrounded it with a pair Schube custom made of silver angel wings. this pendant for a client. “When I call the mother (Photo by Abby Walton) to tell her it’s finished, well, that’ll be a three tissue phone call,” she said.

Pieces crafted in love are the only way Schube knows how to do business, she said. Besides jewelry, Avalon also is different because it sells fountain pens. Although it may seem like handwriting has gone by the wayside, Schube said the pens are actually one of their biggest sellers. It was their vintage and new pen business that helped launch their website, www.avalonpens.com. Today, the store ships fountain and roller ball pens all across the world. Don’t know how to use a fountain pen? Not to worry – Schube is always willing to teach the fine art. It’s this dedication to customer service and a real interest in people’s lives that makes Avalon Jewelers and Gallery unique. From colored gems, to pens, the store also sells and displays the work of local artists.

WWII vet takes the plunge

By Kasie Murphy • news@currentzionsville.com

Most birthdays are celebrated with a cake and presents. But Zionsville native John Holliday, 89, celebrated his soon-toachievement be 90th birthday with something a bit more unusual - a free fall from 13,500 feet at a speed of 120 miles per hour at Skydive Indianapolis. Holliday was a pilot in the Air Force, stationed in the Philippines, during World War II where he flew a C47, C48 and a Glider. “I never got to jump in the military because I never got shot down,” Holliday said. Holliday is a self-proclaimed thrill seeker. For his 65th birthday, he went parasailing in Bali. On his 70th, he flew in a hot air balloon in Colorado. Then, on his 85th birthday, Holliday went around the Indianapolis 500 Speedway four times at a speed of 172 miles per hour. Now he’s crossed skydiving off his bucket list. “This was more exciting than the track,” Holliday said. Holliday and his granddaughter, Katie Rogers, took their epic leap while attached to a tandem instructor. “I wanted the memory of skydiving with my grandfather,” Rogers said. Rogers has been a firefighter and EMT for the Indianapolis Fire Dept. for 13 years. “My favorite part was gliding,” Holliday said. “It is a real honor to have a World War II vet-

I had no idea what it would be like to bathe my dog outside. In the past, it has happened in the bathroom with all Plain talk doors and windows closed and Brutie restricted in the shower stall. For added security, I kept my arm around the dog’s shoulders while lathering him up and rinsing with the hand-held showerhead. Brutie accepted this confinement as non-negotiable. This time, I did it outside with the garden hose. After all, it was a warm day full of sunshine and good will. My wife and I agreed Brutie would probably enjoy a nice cool bath. I gathered the shampoo and towels with confidence, turned on the hose and whistled for the dog. Brutie trotted up expecting a treat or maybe a scratch behind the ears. What he was not expecting was the full blast of the garden hose across his back. He bolted, roared across the yard and rolled in the grass. I had just mowed the lawn, of course, so

when I got him back to me, he was festooned with grass clippings. I quickly got the dog in a hammerlock and doused him again with the hose. By the time I had squeezed out the shampoo and worked up a lather, I was feeling confident again. As a result, for one fatal moment, I let down my guard. That was when the dog decided to shake. Surprised by an avalanche of soapsuds, I released my grip, and old Brutie rocketed across the lawn again and rolled in the grass. When he stood up he looked like a soggy Chia pet. By the time I got him rinsed off and dried, I was soaked and covered with a gooey mixture of shampoo and grass clippings. Later I wrote a note on the shampoo bottle. It said, “Warning: For inside use only.” Ward Degler lives in Zionsville with his wife and dog.

It’s time again for the 2014 Grandparents Calendar contest sponsored by the Boone County Senior Services. The fundraiser contest is open to grandparents or grandchildren with a Boone County connection. The 2014 calendar will be the fourth year BCSSI has held the contest, a fundraiser for the group that brought $3,500 last year. “It’s always a lot of fun to see the photos that come in and watch the voting progress,” said Sonya Shoup, director of development for BCSSI. “We usually have a few families that really get competitive and you can just see those vote tallies rise each day as family and friends cast their votes.” For Patty Hughes, who took home the most votes in last year’s contest to land on the cover of the 2013 calendar, the key was perseverance. “She had entered two other times and worked so hard to get it but then would get beat out at the end,” Shoup said. “Then she got it last year which was wonderful – she is such a great supporter of our organization.” “I participated in the calendar contest because I am a proud grandmother, and I want to support BCSSI because of the wonderful opportunities they provide to our seniors and others within our community.” Hughes said.

The rules are simple; the photo cannot be a professional portrait and must include the grandparent(s) and grandchildren. “We have had some really cute photos including full Halloween costumes and Christmas ones,” Shoup said. “Photos like that or ones in a certain season like summer, we try to match to a fitting month if the picture wins. We had a really cute one this year for August where they were sticking their tongues out and they were all different colors.” The top vote getter lands the cover. The 12 photos after that with the most votes are featured each month. Photos can be submitted August 1 through the 15. There is a $5 submission charge per photo. Photos can be submitted at www.booneseniors. org, by email at jlemen@booneseniors.org or in person at the BCSSI office in the Zionsville Town Hall the Lebanon office at 515 CrownPointe Dr. Voting begins August 16 and goes through the 31. There is a cost of 50 cents per vote and can be done online or at the BCSSI offices. There is no limit to the amount of votes that can be cast for each photo. The free, full-sized calendars will be available Sept. 28 at the Boone County Senior Health and Wellness Expo. They also will be available at area businesses in October and November and at the BCSSI offices.

Veterinarian and artist Gail Grasee satisfies both of her passions

Veterinarian Gail Grasee’s hobby incorporates Japanese and Native American techniques. (Photo by Jillyann Burns)

By Abby Walton • news@currentzionsville.com As a kid, Gail Grasee dreamed of becoming an artist but didn’t think she could make a living as one. So, she decided cover story to pursue her other passion, animals. In 1994, she moved to Zionsville and for almost 20 years has been taking care of the community’s furry friends as medical director at the VCA Eagle Park Animal Hospital. During those early years in Zionsville, Grasee said she still felt the need to scratch her artistic itch. “I just wanted to do something different that would allow me to have a creative outlet,” Grasee said. So, she started taking a basic pottery class and began making things in her spare time. But a vet visit to Avalon Jewelers and Gallery led to Grasee’s art work becoming more than just a hobby. “She actually stopped by to check on one of my cat’s who’d been sick,” said Avalon’s coowner, Susan Schube. “We got to talking, and she casually mentioned that she was an artist, too. So I asked her to bring some work in and when she did, I was amazed because it was so beautiful.” Grasee’s style of pottery is very different from most because she uses a unique technique called Raku. Japanese artists created this style in the 1500s by putting a fired piece of pottery

into another container with combustible materials. This reaction would create amazing patterns and colors on the pottery which was often used for tea ceremonies. Fast forward to 1950 and that’s when American artists began embracing this style because of its vibrant colors and freedom of design. “No Raku piece is ever the same. They really are like snowflakes,” Grasee said. When you look at Grasee’s work, you can’t help but notice the intense colors. Grasee said this comes from the Raku technique. Once a piece is created, she covers it with a copperbased glaze. Then, the piece is put into a kiln and heated to about 1,100 degrees Fahrenheit. “That’s why you see Raku done with bowls and vases, things that are thick, because it has to be able to withstand that kind of heat or the pottery would crack,” Grasee said. Once hot, the piece is removed from the kiln and put into a reduction chamber which usually contains things like newspaper and pine needles. It’s during this process that the fire and smoke react with the glaze to create a swirly, iridescent look. “It’s kind of like Christmas because you don’t know what your piece is going to look like until you open the kiln,” Grasee said. So with a few pieces, Grasee started selling her work at Avalon Jewelers and Gallery. “With each piece, you can really see her talent blossom,” Schube said. While Grasee creates basic bowls and vases, she’s now branching out by soldering copper

wire to some of her pots and even learning the ancient Native American art form of Horse Hair Raku. “It just seemed like a natural progression because of my day job,” Grasee said. With the Horse Hair Raku, instead of putting on a copper glaze, Grasee leaves the piece bare, fires it in a kiln and when it’s hot, takes it out and lays horse hairs all over it. “As the horse hairs burn off, it creates these beautiful marks,” she said. From making bowls, vases and plates, Grasee has now turned her attention to other creations like Raku clocks and tiles. She even makes Horse Hair Raku animal pendants, ornaments and elaborate Dragon eggs. What was once just a hobby has grown into a studio in her house and showings at local art galleries. “It’s really taken on a life of its own,” Grasee said. It’s a life she never thought could happen as a kid, but now, she’s able to release her creative side while also helping out animals. “Proceeds from pieces like my ornaments all go back to local animal shelters,” Grasee said. In Japanese, the word Raku means enjoyment or comfort which is fitting because that’s exactly what Grasee is giving the Zionsville community through her work as a veterinarian and as an artist. Grasee’s work is on display at Avalon Jewelers and Gallery at 75 S. Main St. or visit its website at www.avalonpens.com.

Know thyself, first Commentary by Terry Anker Several years ago, my body decided that it was no longer equipped to process the boundless array of empty calories that my brain seemed to enjoy so much. While Cheetos probably aren’t an appropriate food for a 35-year-old man anyway, I did enjoy them. And for much of my life, the pounds that they might have added were dispersed through the activities of my daily life. I played competitive adult basketball, ran to and fro, and lived what might be known in the current lexicon as the active lifestyle. Yet almost by stealth attack, the bulge continues to expand. Once I resigned myself to the fact that no amount of willpower could force my metabolism to return to its former pace, I began to look for other mechanisms to tame the ever advancing fat. Chief among them was a simple habit of weighing myself each and every morning before taking a shower. Seeing a daily number appear helped me associate a connection between my

actions and my weight. While it may not be for everyone, it did help me remain aware and therefore motivated. And, it has remained a useful tool even as I slide further into middle-age. In a conversation with a younger friend recently, he was asking for tactics to begin his own path to age-appropriate fitness, but his ego dreaded the experience of knowing his starting number. I asked, “If you don’t know where you are, how can you ever hope to know how to get to where you want to be?” Why do we so mightily resist understanding where we are in our relationships, in our jobs, and with our health? If it is true that ignorance is bliss, why is it so often that the ignorant are the first victims of their own disinterest? Terry Anker is an associate editor of Current Publishing, LLC.

You might have read last week that the United States Postal Service could be in for a major overhaul by 2022. U.S. Rep. Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) said the move could make for a “21st-century postal service.” That’s fine, but shouldn’t the USPS become a 20th-century organization beforehand?  The headlines: Door-to-door service for homes and businesses, as well as all Saturday deliveries (except for medicines) would be eliminated. Curbside and cluster-box deliveries, such as those most Current readers already have, would become the norm. The House Oversight and Government Reform Committee (yes, we are laughing about that panel’s title; laugh with us) said the makeover would save $6.5 billion annually; that’s $4.5 billion for doorto-door and $2 billion for Saturday delivery. Actually, it’s a decent move if it means taxpayers won’t be on the hook for a massive bailout, but, as we all know, that remains to be seen. It makes good business sense to downsize, or “right-size,” the operation. After all, it’s a Titanic-like disaster now, and we all know it took only one captain to plink the iceberg and send that grand dame down. The wailing and gnashing of teeth you’re hearing, though, predictably is from the National Association of Letter Carriers (read: union), which claims such a reorganization would be tremendously harmful to small businesses, the elderly and folks living in regions with extreme weather. That’s a bunch of bunk. We’ll adapt, because there’ll be no other choice. Look, we’ve adapted to the decay of the postal service thus far, so shifting to following a streamlined version that doesn’t soak us for the tab shouldn’t be much of a problem. As much as we hate to admit it, the whole thing just makes too much sense. Brian Kelly, publisher, and Steve Greenberg, general manager, are co-owners of Current Publishing, LLC.

Lose ‘Lost’ and join the ‘Thrones’ Commentary by Danielle WIlson

My husband and I don’t watch much television. Apart from “Glee,” “Sports Center” and the occasional “30 Rock” rerun, humor we’re mostly too busy shuttling kids to and from their various practices, meetings and games. We also don’t subscribe to the movie channels, so aren’t able to catch the R-rated stuff like “Mad Men.” But this summer, we decided to plug in to pop culture, albeit a few years late, and download both the entire series of ABC’s “Lost” and the last three seasons of HBO’s “Game of Thrones.” Doo stayed up late for literally a week straight and finished the latter before I could even see the pilot. I got so angry with him that I made him wait to start “Lost” until we both had the time. We are now six episodes in to “Lost,” but frankly, I’m not “getting it.” I like looking at Matthew Fox and that Sawyer fellow, and the scenery is beautiful, but honestly, what’s the big deal? I’ve been told to hold out a few more episodes, that the plot thickens very shortly, but honestly, “Lost” pretty much sucks now that I’ve begun “Thrones.” Sweet. Mercy. Baby dragons, arctic zombies and creepy old warlocks. Gratuitous violence, full frontal nudity, and British-accented foul language. Is it any wonder that I am now completely addicted to this medieval fantasy epic? No kidding, I forgot to feed my children yester-

day. And the best part is that you never know who they’re going to kill off. Could be a character they’ve just introduced, could be the lead you’ve known since the beginning. It’s both horrible and awesome at the same time. I also appreciate how “Throne’s” writers (or possibly the author of the book it’s based on; I’m not sure how closely the series follows George R.R. Martin’s “A Song of Fire and Ice”) have made the women the real powerhouses. Behind every king wannabe and knight in bloodied armor is a female mastermind, using her seductive wiles to manipulate, plot, and ultimately control the playing field. Sure the ladies are usually naked, but any smart viewer can recognize who’s ultimately in control. (You go, Khaleesi!) Plus, there is no shortage of amazing redheaded characters, saving the world per our usual M.O. and making it look good in the process. If you don’t watch “Game of Thrones,” I highly recommend downloading the first few episodes. You’ll probably be offended, disgusted and embarrassed, but if you are anything like me and appreciate stay-cations through television, you’ll also be incredibly entertained. Peace out.

If you don’t watch “Game of Thrones,” I highly recommend downloading the first few episodes.

Hypnotized one kernal at a time Commentary by Dick Wolfsie

After three decades of togetherness, my wife and I have some serious questions about whether our relationship can really humor continue any longer when we have such a fundamental disagreement about one aspect of our marital life: popcorn. Everything about popcorn from the moment we get in the car to go to the movies to the point when the movie has ended creates a disharmony in our otherwise perfect union. “You’re not going to get popcorn this time, are you, Mary Ellen? We’re going out for a very expensive dinner right after the movie.” “I have to. It’s been a movie tradition for me since high school.” “So was necking in the balcony, but we’ve cut that out almost completely.” Once we reach the theater, the tension rises. “Dick, I’ll find a seat. You wait in line for the popcorn.” “Why do I have to wait in line? I don’t want popcorn. And when I come into the dark theater you’ll forget to look around for me and I’ll walk aimlessly up and down the aisles while people stare at me and assume I’m all alone and have no one to sit with. Of course, I do wait in line. I buy the popcorn and a drink.

“Why did you get the extra large, Dick? You know we can’t eat all that.” “Because the extra large is only 50 cents more than the small and you get five times more popcorn. I already feel like I’m getting ripped off, and I don’t want them to get away with it. Did you know that popcorn used to be a quarter?” “Yes, and the people in the films are talking now.” Another issue is that my wife is a bit of a health nut so she avoids butter and salt. But popcorn with no butter and salt? You have to be kidding. Why not just tear up Styrofoam into tiny pieces and put them into a bag? Enjoy. It’ll taste the same. And then there’s eating the popcorn. My wife takes one piece from the top of the box with two fingers, then places the popcorn in her mouth where she lets it melt on her tongue. Mary Ellen claims this gets her into a rhythm to understand and enjoy the movie. I believe this technique is practiced by a satanic cult in Utah. My wife’s right arm moves up and down next to my face about 1,100 times during the movie. I don’t remember any films I’ve seen with her because I’m hypnotized through most of them.

Fur bearing thieves beware

I grow a pretty good vegetable garden, if I do say so myself, and like any good gardener I am always happy to share humor the bounty. I always plant too much anyway, so it only makes sense that I offer what I have to friends and neighbors. Especially zucchini. I always plant too much zucchini. There is one group, however, with which I do not willingly share even so much as a green tomato. The members of this group are rude, demanding and annoying, and frequently just help themselves to whatever they want, to the fruits of my labor, without so much as a by-your-leave. I speak, of course, of squirrels. Those pushy little bushy-tailed rats are the bane of the urban gardener’s existence. Right now, they seem to be exceedingly fond of cucumbers. I planted a small plot this year, just enough for fresh cukes on the table and maybe a few bowls of quick pickles. Well, the squirrels are putting my cucumber plans asunder. If I leave cukes on the vine to get a little size, eight inches or so, they wind up with big holes gnawed in them. And occasionally the smaller ones, the three or four-inch ones, wind up on Mister Squirrel’s salad plate as well. You’d think they had little bottles of ranch dressing up in the trees. It’s not that I can’t tolerate a little loss. Any gardener worth his fertilizer knows that you’re

going to incur some loss to weather and pests. But outright theft is another matter entirely. Last year, during the drought, I was a little more inclined to be charitable toward our furbearing neighbors. They were raiding the tomatoes then in a desperate search for water and, being a soft-hearted type, I was willing to go along with it. I didn’t even yell (much) when they all but denuded my one and only vine of Russian Krims, my favorite tomato. I figured I could always go to a farmer’s market to buy some heirlooms but squirrels don’t have that option. No pockets to carry money, you see. This year, though, when it rains every day for weeks, there is no drought and to my mind, no reason for them to plead thirst when raiding my vegetables. Thieves, that’s all they are – little fur-bearing thieves. Of course, it could be said that by planting a garden I have created what the lawyers call an attractive nuisance, which is the long way of saying I created my own problem, and the squirrels were unable to resist. I’m willing to consider that up to the point where the Russian Krims are involved. Then it’s nuisance, shmuisance, stay out of my tomatoes. And my cukes.

Indy Jazz Fest swings into Conner Prairie By Mark Johnson • mark@youarecurrent.com On Friday, Aug. 2 and Saturday, Aug. 3, the Indianapolis Symphony will feature a first for the Marsh Symconner prair1e phony on the Prairie series. Jazz will be the featured music when Indy Jazz Fest will present “A Salute to Indiana Composers” on the Conner Prairie Amphitheatre stage at 8 p.m. Some of the finest musicians and singers in the state will take to the stage to pay tribute to great composers of Indiana such as Cole Porter, Hoagy Carmichael, Michael Jackson, as well as jazz titans Freddie Hubbard and Wes Montgomery. This will mark the first time in the 32-year history of Symphony on the Prairie that jazz will be the headliner of the series. For a city that is as rich in jazz history as Indianapolis, it is hard to imagine that jazz has only now found its way onto that stage. So, why has it taken 32 years for the ISO to bring jazz to the series? ISO Director of Communications Jessica Di Santo had the same question in mind. “I wondered how we could have missed jazz,” she said. “For the last 32 years, we have had all genres of music, but not the tried and true genre of jazz. Jazz just seemed like such a natural fit. It’s a common language. Jazz is familiar, friendly, and open. Jazz can inspire. Seeing so many young people there, some of them experi-

encing jazz for the first time is truly amazing.” Di Santo also gave credit to Indy Jazz Fest Director David Allee for organizing the concert. Allee, himself an accomplished jazz trumpeter, is also the owner and operator of the Jazz Kitchen in Indianapolis. “He has been wonderful,” Di Santo said. “He has done so much as the creator and the producer of the event. He has really organized it for

us. We have a slate of the very best talent in this genre of music.” The gates to the amphitheater will open at 6 p.m. each evening. Tickets are priced at $23 in advance and $28 at the gate for adults, $12 for children ages 2-12 in advance and $14 at the gate. For more information on Symphony on the Prairie including ticket and parking pass information, visit www.indianapolissymphony.org.

Three horses later

Last fall, my husband and I had intended to start looking to downsize from one house in Zionsville to another. We off the mat ended up renovating an 11-acre horse farm just minutes from the village. What an incredible but different lifestyle. Our friends and family still have a hard time imagining my husband, the bank executive, scooping poop early mornings on the weekend. Most people who own horses actually say it is calming and rewarding to take care of the stalls and all that it includes. Along with the physical work of taking care of animals on a farm, it also forces you to enjoy nature and the elements that normally wouldn’t occur. Early morning feedings and watching the sun rise is a wonder in itself. When dressed properly even pushing a wheel barrel over crunchy snow in the winter to a compost pile is empowering and brings a smile to my face. Along with a deeper connection to nature are the special relationships and bonding that occurs with each animal. We started off with a three-inch Palomino mini-horse named Rock Star. A week later came a retired white pasture horse named Tucker who I had fallen in love with where I was taking riding lessons. (Yes, I have the white horse from the corner of 96th Street and Moore Road that many of you have been missing.) It was a special moment when the 15hand Tucker and Rock Star met. It was love at first sight and they have been inseparable since touching noses. After four months of learning to care for the horses, we recently got an 8-year-old Palomino Tennessee Walker named Maverick. Horses are herd animals so it didn’t take long before our three horses were bonded. There have

been a few minor struggles for leadership and the squirt, Rock Star, often wins. Little horse syndrome. Here are some lessons learned off the mat that can be applied to life in general: • Take time to be out in nature. It is so grounding and centering when you lead a busy lifestyle. • Take time to connect with an animal(s) and to learn unconditional love. • Slow down and enjoy the moment. You can’t be in a hurry on “horse” time – there is a calmness needed along with a methodical routine. • Learn to just be! Once the barn chores are done, it is easy to go inside and resume the “to do list.” It’s been a treat to just sit on a bench in the pasture and watch the horses. It’s been a treat to lay in a hammock in Rock Star’s stall and be flanked by the two bigger horses in stalls on both sides who all watch me. They have taught me the joy of just hanging out. Until next time – Namaste!

Food math – People with a sweet tooth know sugary desserts aren’t healthy, but the actual calorie content of a large vanilla shake is shocking when compared to other food items. One from Baskin-Robbins will run you 1,070 calories and 32 grams of saturated fat. Imagine eating three Quarter Pounders at one meal, because that’s the same thing, according to the Center for Science in the Public Interest. – www.webmd.com

How will new mandates affect me? Commentary by Jamie Ianigro

Question from John L. from Noblesville: I currently get health insurance for my family through my employer. I Insurance know changes are coming from health reform, but is there anything particular that I need to worry about? Response from Jamie Ianigro: Health reform has a lot of folks concerned and confused. The main piece of the legislation that will affect nearly everyone is the individual mandate that requires you to buy health insurance. If you like the insurance that your employer provides, you are considered covered and can stick with that program. You may also be able to switch to publicly available coverage eventually if you choose, but all that is still being figured out. Any employer health plan you currently have qualifies as minimum essential coverage. You don’t need to change to a publicly available plan to avoid the fee that uninsured people may have to pay in 2014. If you’d like to explore publicly available coverage options, you can, but there are several important things to consider. With most employer health insurance plans, your employer pays a portion of your premiums. Your employer does not need to make a contribu-

tion to your premiums if you switch away from their plan. You should consider this carefully before comparing your current plan to publicly available plans. If you decide to check out publicly available plans, be aware that you may not qualify for lower costs on your monthly premiums and out-of-pocket costs, even if your income would qualify you otherwise. Whether you qualify for lower costs will depend on what kind of coverage your employer offers. If your job-based coverage is considered affordable and meets minimum value, you won’t be able to get lower costs on premiums or outof-pocket costs in the marketplace. This is true no matter your income and family size. Your employer can tell you whether the insurance plan it offers meets minimum value and help you determine whether the plan is considered affordable for you. You can also contact your independent insurance agent if you have further questions or if you lose your employer’s insurance plan and need to see what is available. Jamie Ianigro is with Shepherd Insurance & Finanacial Services. Have an insurance question you need answered? Send it to asktheadvisor@shepherdins.com.

Finding romance in your closet Commentary by Nikki Blaine

I once read a quote by Caitlin Moran that read, “When a woman says, ‘I have nothing to wear!’, what she really means is, Fashion ‘There’s nothing here for who I’m supposed to be today.’” How often do you look into your closet, see maybe one or two pieces you might want to wear, but realize they don’t “go��� with anything that is already on your mind, or that the particular occasion calls for. While matching and following socially dictated style silhouettes will keep you from looking out of place, consider thinking outside of the rules of matching that you subconsciously apply to your wardrobe and allow yourself to work your favorite pieces into new ensembles. Suddenly, creating a visual representation of who you are won’t be a daunting task. Take the featured photo as an example. If you’re anything Photo by Grilera Images like me, you would never have put these pieces together on your own. And yet, they seem to flow and actually create a uniquely distinctive style. It’s not magic or extreme creativity that

fo A N r A VA O ST IL W IG AB M LE AT IS M

lends itself to the outfits that make everyone else say, “How did she think of that?” It’s following basic rules of design and allowing self to think outside the closet. Color – This outfit works because as bold as the incorporated colors and patterns are, they actually do not clash or reside too close to each other on the color wheel. Incorporating the neutral tank allows the yellow to pop against the otherwise pallid grouping of black, grey and crème. Form – The silhouette of the outfit wouldn’t work if the yellow top was opaque. Because it is sheer, it allows you to still see the shape of the more fitted lace tank underneath. The yellow color actually draws your eyes upward to focus on the veiled torso which ends up being flattering despite draping fabric. Unity – Unity is the word that refers to all the elements of your outfit “working.” The sheer overlays of the pants and the yellow top create a uniform texture that puts the outfit in sync from a glance. The lace of the tank gives the outfit some life with textural play. The diagonal stripes in the pants keep the eye in motion and prevent the outfit from getting stuck in the folds of draping fabric. Because so much of the form is actually covered by fabric, a peak of shoulder becomes instantly sensual. Overall, the composition is brilliant and all your friends will admire your originality if you can find similar items in your closet and experiment with them a little. Of course, the Glam Chic Gal is always willing to give you insight on whatever your challenges may be. But, for now….I’m signing off until next time!

Summer skin care prescriptions Commentary by Kristina Johnson

We all know that taking care of your skin is important, and even more so during the summer months when the burns are advice plentiful and dryness can still occur. Of course, there are always those tips to not forget the sunscreen and to lather yourself in aloe after a burn, but what about summer sun care tips you haven’t heard of. Well, I’m here to help. Check out these all-natural, home remedies that’ll save your skin and have you looking gorgeous all summer. Oatmeal mask for sun damage This mask is perfect to soothe burns, but it also acts as a gentle scrub for sensitive skin. Mix 1/2 cup oatmeal and hot water to create a paste. After mixture cools, add a few drops of honey. Apply to clean skin and leave on for about 15 minutes. Rinse with cool water. Avocado and honey mask for dry skin Avocado and honey are great for moisturizing skin and leaving it feeling softer than when you started. Avocado replenishes, while honey heals. Mix half an avocado and two tablespoons of honey. You can even add a bit of coconut oil for added moisture if you want. Apply to clean skin and leave on for at least 10 minutes. Rinse with cool water. Honey and lemon mask for oily skin Again, honey acts as a nourishing agent while lemon takes care of excess oil. This combo also works great for brightening your skin. Mix two

tablespoons of honey with two tablespoons of lemon juice and apply to clean face. Leave on skin until you start to feel it tighten, then rinse with cool water. Lemon and brown sugar for exfoliation Lemon as we know is great for removing excess oil, but it also clears the skin of dead cells. Brown sugar acts as a natural exfoliant that will help you achieve a nice summer glow. Cut a lemon in half and dip it into a plate of raw brown sugar. Gently rub the dipped lemon half on dryer areas of body such as elbows, knees and feet. If your skin is sensitive you may want to limit yourself to the rougher spots. This works best after skin has been rinsed in warm water. Kristina Johnson and the team at NjS Studio & Salon, 70 E.

This small cave in Antakya may be the birthplace of Christianity. (Submitted photo)

The birthplace of Christianity? Commentary by Don Knebel

A small cave in the mountainside above the city of Antakya in southern Turkey may well be the oldest church in the world, Travel dating to the earliest days of Christianity. It was also in or near this cave that early Christians argued over a matter that proved crucial to the ultimate success of Christianity. In the first century, Antakya, then known as Antioch, was the third largest city in the world. According to the Bible, Paul and Barnabas spent a year in Antioch recruiting new followers of Jesus, where those followers were first called “Christians.� Exactly where in Antioch those early Christians may have met is impossible to determine, but a natural cave on the side of Mount Starius has long been thought to be that place. Not everything in the cave goes back to the time of Paul and Barnabas. But a watery hole in the cave floor long used for baptisms may have existed in the first century and a narrow passage to the outside might have been used by early Christians to escape the Romans. While in Antioch, Paul taught that circumcision was not necessary for Gentiles who wanted to

follow Jesus. James, the brother of Jesus and the leader of the church in Jerusalem, disagreed and sent a delegation to Antioch to try to convince Paul that he was wrong. Paul eventually won the argument. With the requirement of circumcision no longer an impediment to gaining non-Jewish followers, Paul set off from Antioch on the missionary journeys that eventually spread Christianity to the far reaches of the Roman Empire. Roman Catholics have identified Peter as the first bishop of Antioch, which became an important city in the early church. So the cave church in Antioch, although founded by Paul and Barnabas, is now named for Peter. Many sites traditionally associated with early events in Christian history are suspect at best. But the cave in Antakya has sufficient indicia of authenticity that it may legitimately be considered the place where Paul broke Christianity away from its Jewish moorings to become a religion of the Gentiles.

MAKEUP FOR TEENS Most young women are obsessed with makeup but they often don’t have the knowledge or confidence to make it work. Teens love trying trendy colors and textures, but a fresh, young face should never be smothered in makeup. Teens should skip an all over foundation. Cover blemishes with a blemish stick and then dab on powder in the oily T-zone, but avoid slathering on a heavy, liquid foundation. Makeup should also not be used to look older. This can result in an unnatural, harsh look. Keeping colors light and sheer will ensure the fresh, youthful glow still shines through.

Maybe you always wondered… Commentary by David Decker

Q. How often should I water my lawn? A. Generally, twice a week unless we are receiving regular rain. outdoors Overwatering promotes a weak, topical root system that can’t respond to prolonged droughts without wasteful daily watering. Q. Is there a secret to controlling weed growth in paver patios? A. No secret, but it can be very annoying. Polymeric sand in the joints of the patio material helps considerably. Beyond that, arm yourself with your favorite herbicide and spray upon first sight. The majority of weed growth is caused by weed seed blowing in from your neighbors lawn or happy birds dropping presents. Q. Should I seal my new patio to protect it? A. Concrete and stamped concrete need sealing immediately after installation. Most pavers and natural stone do not require sealing, although a satin finish sealer can prompt the colors to pop. Q. What’s the difference between a brick versus a paver patio? A. Spelling only. We use the brick/paver as generic terminology, although officially a brick refers to the material used to face a home, which is not suitable for a patio surface. Q. Is there a standard for design fees? A. I wish. We see design fees from complimentary to more than $100 per hour. As usual, the

According to Chris Lemcke, technical director at Weed Man, sprinkle animal fur, hair or cayenne pepper throughout the yard to ward them, and other critters like raccoons and skunks, off. – www.living.msn.com

Midwest follows the lead of Chicago, Atlanta, Charlotte, etc. which have been confidently charging design fees for years, as our company does. Q. Any easy tips to transform my stale outdoor living space without ripping out everything? A. Retrofitting is a great strategy that encourages us to tweak your present patio material and upgrade the landscape. Adding dramatic flowering pots and updated colorful furniture is invaluable.

Lawnmower be gone – Pushing around a lawnmower all day can get tiresome and boring.

Is granite or quartz a better choice for you?

Commentary by David Decker

One of the most frequently asked questions we get asked at the Affordable Companies is whether a homeowner indoors should choose granite or quartz for their home improvement project. So what is the difference between the two materials? Granite is a naturally occurring material that is mined from the earth in large pieces, but later broken down into slabs. These granite slabs are then treated to a fine polish using a polyurethane sealer or resin. Each piece of granite is 100-percent unique. The color, grain and overall look of the stone will vary from slab to slab, even if they have been mined from the same quarry. The key to granite’s enduring popularity is its durability. If you keep your granite properly cleaned and sealed, spills and stains should not be an issue. Quartz, on the other hand, is engineered from a combination of stone, composites and resins. Like granite, quartz is a naturally occurring stone element. But because quartz products are partially manufactured, they have the ability to look much more uniform than granite. One of the biggest benefits would be the low maintenance factor. Quartz is nonporous, which means it will not absorb water and microbes. Additionally, it will not require sealing/re-sealing, which will save you time and money.

Granite and quartz are both good decorating options but for different reasons. (Submitted photo)

So now, with all of this background information on the two different types of stones, how do you go about choosing one that’s right for your specific project? The ideal stone choice will vary depending on usage and environmental factors. Here are some things to keep in mind: • Granite is more heat resistant than quartz. So you may want to select granite for kitchen countertops, if you are planning on setting hot pans directly on the stone. • Because quartz does not need to be sealed and is nonporous, you may want to choose it for shower ledges, bathroom vanities or sink backsplashes. • Quartz is a bit more scratch resistant than granite. This makes it a better fit for bar

ledges or other high traffic areas that may be prone to damage. • Because granite has natural variation, be careful to select material appropriately. All in all, both granite and quartz countertops are going to add value to your home. They will both bring a polished, natural and impressive look to any space. The decision comes down to your personal preference and the needs of your specific space.
