Z’Sparkle Party Drag Race to End Alzheimer’s – The race starts at 8 p.m. Aug. 9 with a parade of participants. Emcees Anne Ryder and Ray Cortopassi officiate as each “dragstar” or “dudette” struts north on Main Street to Oak Street collecting donations. Immediately following the parade, participants will have the opportunity to compete in one of three race classes in an attempt to win a first place crown. But in the end, instead of speed, it is the donations received that are the real “driving force” of this event. An award ceremony follows and the VIP tent party will continue after the race.

as a life skill,” Weaver said. Right now, the facility has two swim directors and several staff members who are CPR, first aid and life guard certified. Class sizes are small with a maximum of four children per instructor. The 2013 fall session is underway, however, there’s still time to sign up. The session runs for 10 weeks with a lesson once a week. “We have classes for babies starting at 6 months up to 6 years of age,” Weaver said. The motto of InterActive Academy is “Building healthy, fit and confident kids.” Beside a long list of physical activities, the center also offers a full day academic preschool through Kindergarten. Kids in this program take part in things like gymnastics, foreign language, art and music. Weaver said she knows the start of school is a busy time and that’s really one of the reasons why InterActive Academy is home to so many learning opportunities for kids. “We wanted to keep parents from having to drive to several different places so their kids could take part in activities,” she said. To learn more about InterActive Academy and class times and prices, visit or call 733-3000. The academy is at 3795 S. U.S. 421 in Zionsville.

For kids, back to school time means more hours spent hitting the books and less time playing in the local swimming pool. However, education InterActive Academy in Zionsville wants to keep kids in the pool year-round, not only to have fun, but also to teach them some lifelong skills. This non-profit started out in 2001 as a private school and gymnastics facility. Since then, it’s turned into a youth facility that has everything from dance and cheer to karate all under one roof. “We really wanted to be able to serve the community and make this a one-stop shop for parents and their children,” said Executive Director Barb Weaver. After adding fitness classes for kids and adults, Weaver said the directors and staff wanted to expand the center to include swim classes. “This has been on our radar for about five years,” Weaver said. Now, that dream is a reality with a large, indoor swim facility that focuses on educating kids about water safety. “We just feel that all kids need to learn how to swim. They need it not only as a safety skill, but also

The former Citgo lot could soon see some development. (Photo by Jannelle Morrison)

Development set for vacant lot

By Abby Walton • After years of sitting vacant, a property in downtown Zionsville finally is starting to see some activity. Within the whats next past week, a deal was made that could eventually bring new development to the land at 240 S. Main St. - the site of the former Citgo station which sits at the southwest corner of Main and Sycamore streets. Since 2007, the site has been owned by EBO LLC, an ownership entity, created by Jenny Buccicone who lives in Rochester, Minn. According to Sean Clapp, a Fishers-based real estate attorney who represents EBO LLC, a buyer did enter into an agreement to purchase the property as soon as a deed restriction ends in 2015.

“At this time, I cannot disclose the name of the buyer,” Clapp said. Bo Leffel, a broker with Cassidy Turley in Indianapolis, who represents the buyer, was just as tight lipped about the new owner of the land. “At this time, all I can tell you is that the buyer is a well-known, highly respected local developer,” Leffel said. While the potential buyer of the property remains unknown, Leffel did disclose the development project would include a mixture of residential and commercial properties. This project also has room to expand outside its 2.4 acres because Leffel said the buyer has control over some adjacent parcels. Although nothing has been filed with Town Hall just yet, Clapp and Leffell both said they would anticipate some movement on the project within the next six to 12 months.

My new cell phone reaches out Commentary by Ward Degler I got reacquainted with some old friends and made some new ones during the weekend. I didn’t mean to do either. Plain talk Truth is, I got a new cell phone Friday, got it activated at the store, and then spent the next two days figuring out how it works. Since it was a factory refurb job, it didn’t come with instructions. All the guy at the store did was load the contacts from my old phone and wish me luck. My old phone was loaded with buttons. Every function had a button. The new one has a screen with icons for functions. Touch and scroll, the guy at the store said. Touch and scroll. Since I was a newbie at scrolling, I accidentally called the first six names on my contact list. I didn’t talk to anybody, I just called and hung up. As the day progressed, the list of calls grew. By evening I started getting call-backs. “Hey Buddy, haven’t heard from you for awhile.” This was a high school classmate whom

I last contacted five years ago for our class reunion. “This is Shafer’s Lawn & Garden … you called us earlier?” I think I was looking for a blade for a lawn mower I got rid of in 2010. “Hey, I thought you were coming down last winter so we could go sailing…” an old sailing buddy from Florida said. I explained about the price of gas, blah, blah, blah which made it impossible to go anywhere. “How about this winter?” he asked. I had to tell him the boat had been sold. “Then why did you call me?” he asked. “Just wanted to say Hi,” I said meekly and hung up. So, if you got a call from me and I didn’t hang around long enough to talk, I probably just wanted to say “Hi.” Ward Degler lives in Zionsville with his wife and dog.

Daycare offers unique mix

By Abby Walton •

For parents, finding a caregiver isn’t always an easy task. All parents wants to make sure their child is in a safe, happy now open environment, while also learning skills that will help them once they attend school. Jodee Harley, the director and owner of the Early Learning Academy, said her center is that place. While the facility in Zionsville is new, Harley has 12 years experience in child care with another Early Learning Academy in Brownsburg. “With all the growth going on in the Zionsville area, we thought this would be a good opportunity to offer quality childcare,” Harley said. The academy, at 5909 Technology Center Dr., offers care for children from 6 weeks up to 12 years of age. For children that are not yet school age, the academy offers a learning curriculum that’s geared toward the child’s age and developmental level. “We really want to help parents get their children ready for kindergarten,” Harley said. During the day, kids take part in science and art projects, music, writing, reading and math. They may also take field trips during the year. Transportation to local schools also is offered. Besides offering quality childcare, Harley is proud of her “wonderful” staff of 40. “Each staff member has received some type of early childhood education training,” Harley said.

The academy also has teachers that can help children with special needs. All teachers are trained in CPR and first aid. Harley also said the academy has several security systems to ensure children are safe throughout the day. With the new school year underway, the Early Learning Academy is hosting a Back to School celebration on Aug. 14. The academy will have special projects for kids starting around noon and then from 4 to 6 p.m., parents and family members can come to the academy to meet the teachers. Harley said getting to know the parents or guardians of the children they care for is important because one of the main goals at the academy is to help families grow and learn together. The cost to attend the Early Learning Academy varies from age and the number of children you have. For more information, visit or call 873-3340. Tours are available upon request.

Divorce – What To Expect: College Expenses In Indiana in any Dissolution of Marriage, Post-Dissolution or Paternity action, the Court may enter a post-secondary educational expense order requiring that the parties, and/or the child(ren) be responsible for a determined portion of the child’s college expenses. In determining what is a reasonable educational expense order, the Court may consider the following factors: the child's aptitude and ability; the child's reasonable ability to contribute to educational expenses through: (i) work; (ii) obtaining loans; and (iii) obtaining other sources of financial aid reasonably available to the child and each parent; and the ability of each parent to meet these expenses. It is important to note that the child must petition for the Court to allocate these expenses. Often, this request is filed by one of the parties at or near the time the child will enter college. Typically, at the time when the parties separate, the child is young and the issue of payment of college expenses will be reserved until a later time as circumstances can change. If the request is not made in a timely fashion, however, the Court may find it waived and neither party ordered to contribute. Who pays these costs? In any matter where a court orders college expenses to be paid, the parties and the child at issue may be required to contribute to the payment of college expenses. Absent agreement, the Court will define what share each party and the child will pay as well as which expenses will be paid. It is not uncommon that the child’s share is comprised of or includes any scholarship, loans, or grants obtained. Further, it is common that any existing 529s at the time of the divorce are applied as the child’s portion of the college expenses. Courts vary on how the expenses are divided given that each family law case is so contextual; however, equal division between each parent and the child is not uncommon. Obviously, the capacity of each person to pay their portion will be considered.

What cost does this include? This is an issue of much current debate; the definition of “college expenses” is not established by statute, leaving the Court (or the parties in an agreement) to determine what this encompasses. Defining these is essential in any agreement or request that the Court do the same. A simple answer is whatever appears on the Bursar’s statement from the school, but the ancillary costs must be considered to ensure they are not excluded, leaving the child short against these costs unintentionally. It is also typical that the contributions be limited to four years, at a state-supported institution, and certain academic and full-time enrollment elements are met. At times, paying for automobile expenses and/or an allowance for the child is appropriate, but the argument can be made that these are not “necessary” reside with one parent while he or she is attending college, the parent housing the child may ask for “credit” for room and board, however, under current caselaw, he or she must show the actual expenses incurred to house the child to receive such credit. What if I can no longer afford to pay for college? Similar to child support, the educational expense order can be modified or terminated based upon a change of circumstance, for instance if a party loses his or her job, that could be a basis upon which to petition the Court to modify the college expense order. Further, the courts are to consider the financial resources of a party, so it is possible that one party not be obligated to pay toward any college expenses depending on the circumstances.

FR O M   T H E BACKSHOP Gun ordinance in safety board’s hands

Morally straight It is our position that religious institutions are within their right to disaffiliate themselves with programs they deem to be in conflict with their beliefs. Recently, several churches made the decision to cut ties with the Boy Scouts of America due to BSA’s decision to open their membership to youth who are openly gay. With the largest majority of BSA’s sponsors being religiously affiliated organizations, the decision has spawned mixed emotions. Conversely, for each troop that has been dropped, other organizations have picked up the sponsorship with open-minded churches among those on the list and even backing the decision. A ban on gay scout leaders is still in effect. Placing sexual orientation in the spotlight of Boy Scouts of America has left many parents with the dilemma of answering tough and often times age inappropriate questions explaining inclusion or exclusion in the organization. Sexual activity is prohibited as part of the boy scout promise of being “morally straight” so why should one’s sexuality matter? Willingness to participate by developing character, citizenship and personal fitness alone should be criteria for earning the good person of earth badge. Earning a badge in political correctness should not be the priority.

Learning from parlor games Commentary by Terry Anker A friend prone to preparing well-planned questions to inspire conversation during her dinner parties routinely demands that each person around the table turn, identify something positive and interesting about the person seated next to them and say it aloud – which leads to both hilarity and self-consciousness, especially among those meeting for the first time. Even more, like a junior Barbara Walters, she poses interrogatories in a way that requires us to imagine the familiar from a different perspective. Once, she asked of the famed three ghosts from Charles Dickens’ “A Christmas Carol,” which apparition best reflects each of our own personalities and why. We expected questions about Scrooge and Marley, perhaps even about the beleaguered Bob Cratchit himself, but as simple as it seems, to become a decent ghost requires thoughtful introspection in addition to a robust knowledge of literature. Most of those gathered showed a nostalgic streak in choosing Christmas Past, alive with the smells and sounds of a lost time, but the

vigorous and hearty nature of Christmas Present, even while holding close the simmering difficulties of ignorance and want only temporarily in abeyance, appealed most to me. At our table, only one imagined the gloom and doom prognosticated by Christmas Future with his bony finger pointing the way toward the eternal choice between salvation and damnation. Like most of us, we can easily say that we have found ourselves playing the role of each of these familiar figures at some point during our lifetimes. Yet undoubtedly, one matches us better than the others. For me, it remains Christmas Present. The duality presented by abundance and poverty – by joy and sorrow – continues to flummox even the most intentional of human beings. Past, Present or Future, these ghosts are here to show us the way if only we dare to follow. Terry Anker is an associate editor of Current Publishing, LLC.

Q U O T E   O F  T H E   W E E K You have to be willing to get happy about nothing

- Andy Warhol

There has been much discussion – among residents and among members of the Zionsville Town Council – about the discharge of firearms within town limits. What is legal? What is illegal? No one seems to know for certain at the moment, but the town safety board, to which a potential ordinance has been forwarded by council, is working on it. We’re told the initial writing of the ordinance was for the town’s rural service district, and that there needed to be a distance of 150 yards around people, building, roads, parks and paths before a firearm could be discharged. If that’s, indeed, the case, it’s not good enough – and it should include the entirety of the town. We heartily support the right to bear arms, so long as those firearms are legally obtained and used with extreme caution and according to law. We hope there is a finalized ordinance soon. ••• Are you a writer or a photographer interested in seeing your work published? Would you simply like to try your hand at these pursuits?

Have you ever sat down on a public toilet only to discover a gi-normous hole in your pants just below your back pocket? Me humor neither, until recently at Kings Island. Hmmm . . . how long had I been hoofing it through the park with my left cheek hanging out? Classy. No matter. After all, it’s memories I was after. The controversial ripped shorts incident (we never determined how or when said tear occurred) was fairly par for the course. Our day of supposed fun began with a 30-minute late arrival, thanks to the troopers on I-74 chaperoning an oversized truck for 10 excruciating miles during rush hour traffic. That’s what midnight to 3 a.m. is for, people! This delay meant I’d had to ignore my desperate need to urinate upon entering the park in favor of helping our youngest obtain her long-awaited orange wristband, signifying she was finally tall enough to ride the big daddies. Did my husband and two boys kindly wait for us? Heck to the no. They sprinted for the Diamondback coaster without even a glance in our direction. No sunscreen application, no safety review on meeting at the Eiffel Tower if you lose your buddy, and no distribution of the four cell phones among the three groups. Suffice it to say, I was livid and in extreme discomfort a mere 10 minutes into our annual thrill-seeking

adventure. I didn’t discover my “the hole” for another five hours, after being drenched on the white water rafting ride, so it was quite possible I had indeed bared my bum to a couple thousand Midwesterners in tanks and tats. Luckily, I had an extra pair of shorts and was able to spare these poor adrenaline junkies additional trauma. What really made this a most precious experience was that I’d been up all night with our lovely dog. So even though I knew to avoid rides with the word “spin,” “whirl,” or “delirium,” subjecting my body to the continuous unnatural G-forces of the coasters increased the sleepdeprived nausea I was feeling, despite copious amounts of Advil and Pepto. Of course, it could have been the bungee dealio I rode with Doo; I’m not sure how I kept my breakfast down after being launched 100 feet into the air while strapped inside a metal cage. Or maybe it was the heat. Below-average temps for most of the summer, but the Monday we pick, it’s 95 (degrees and percent humidity) in the shade. Ah well. My best memories are from when life doesn’t go as planned, holey pants included. Peace out.

He hadn’t eaten anything in two days. (With a beagle, you should worry about loss of appetite after two hours.) He was clearhumor ly in distress. Breathing heavily. Hadn’t budged in hours. I took him to the emergency veterinary clinic where they initially diagnosed it as a treatable infection, but Toby was not getting better. They did an ultrasound. The doctor came into the waiting room with the results. “Can I take him home now?” I asked the doctor. “If you really want to,” she said, explaining that the tumors they found on his liver were probably life threatening, and they might soon become painful. He was too old for any aggressive treatment. “I do want to take him home,” I said without hesitation. “I want some time with him to say good-bye.” I looked into his eyes; the sparkle was gone. I hoped that taking him back to the house was the right decision. Barney, who passed away 10 years ago this week, had accompanied me on 2,500 TV shows for WISH-TV. Rather than become my next TV sidekick, Toby became nothing more than my next best friend. And nothing was more important than that. I’ve had a hound by my side for 23 years. The transition from beagle to beagle was seamless. The two dogs looked alike, they acted

alike, they drove my wife crazy alike. When we got home from the vet, Toby curled up on his bed next to the TV. He didn’t move for 12 hours. No interest in water or food. I spent most of the next afternoon lying next to him, stroking his ears. When my wife got home, I remember saying, “I know this dog; he is dying.” Mary Ellen took issue with my prognosis. “I think he’s going to be fine,” she said, an observation that I took to be directed more at assuaging my anxiety than a legitimate medical assessment. Over the next few days, Toby began wandering around the house, soon barking to go outside to sit in the afternoon sun. His tail started wagging and by the end of the week, he had tipped over all the wastebaskets in the house and snatched a loaf of bread from the kitchen counter. I was ready to kick his butt. I wanted my wife to wipe that self-satisfied look off her face. This was three months ago. I could have easily made a different decision that night at the clinic, never knowing if I made the right one. This experience offers no life lessons. There is no moral here. It’s just a story, but so far, a story with a happy ending.

Why you need a glider

Commentary by Mike Redmond

I recently acquired a glider for the front porch and using it has led me to a stunning conclusion: The world would be a humor lot calmer place if everyone would just get a glider. The half-hour or so I devote to gliding every night soothes my nerves, lowers my blood pressure and makes me a much happier person, which is saying something. I was pretty happy to begin with. Like many of you, I live in a neighborhood where sitting on the front porch and visiting with the neighbors is all but a thing of the past. That’s a pity, because on my block we have some excellent sit-and-visit porches, big ones that go all the way across the front of the house and around the sides as well. To have a porch like that and not use it seems something of a sin to me. So what’s to be gained by sitting on the porch for a half-hour every night? Plenty. It gives you time to think. Just a couple of evenings ago, while waiting for news of the royal birth, I spent a good 20 minutes mulling over the word “overwhelmed,” as in “I am overwhelmed by the fact that American news people were going all gooey over the birth of a baby in England.” This led me to declare myself underwhelmed by the news in general. Balancing my overwhelmed self against my

underwhelmed self, I was finally able to come to the conclusion that the news was leaving me, simply, whelmed. It allows you to work on things. In my case, that means working on stuff I plan to do when I get to be an official Cranky Old Man. For example, a porch glider is an excellent place to practice yelling, “Hey, you kids, get off my lawn!” I plan on doing that a lot in about 20 years, if we ever get any kids in this neighborhood. It unnerves the people who don’t understand porches. I try to greet everyone who walks past. You’d be surprised how many people are alarmed by this. I enjoy it a great deal. And finally… It slows you down. In a world where things move faster than lightning, with news flashed at you instantly from around the world, where the never-ending pursuit of the dollar seems to get rougher all the time, a porch glider requires you to break away. It asks you to put down the laptop, put the phone back in the pocket, and simply “be.” And it all but begs you to ask the neighbors onto the porch to sit and chat for a while.

Doctors Who Listen Are you looking for a doctor who truly listens to the needs of your family—someone you can talk to about all aspects of your health, not just about symptoms when you are sick? Our physicians understand that true wellness is not just the absence of disease. Doctors of osteopathic medicine (D.O.s) work in partnership with patients to help them achieve a high level of wellness by focusing on health education, and injury and disease prevention. Community Westview Hospital welcomes two new physicians to Northwest Family Medicine—Steven Burch, D.O., and Jared Snyder, D.O. Both physicians support the osteopathic philosophy of care and are now accepting new patients of all ages. Dr. Burch and Dr. Snyder completed their family medicine residency at Community Westview Hospital. Both also attended Lake Erie College of Osteopathic Medicine in Erie, Pa. They both have a professional medical interest that includes preventive and acute care medicine – and they aim to provide high-quality, consistent health care for their patients.

Dr. Burch (left) and Dr. Snyder (right)

New ZCS program links town to students By Abby Walton • Decreasing budgets and increasing student populations seem to be a common problem for many school districts across Indiana. For students, that can often mean losing out on field trips or other extracurricular activities and classes because the money ZCS just isn’t there. So now, it’s up to administrators, teachers and staff to put on their thinking caps to find ways to make sure students still get some of those important learning experiences. After several years of planning, Zionsville Community Schools is unveiling what it hopes will be one solution to that problem. The program, called ZCS-BRAVO, stands for Building Relationships and Volunteer Opportunities. The idea for the program came from Julie Oakley, the director of special projects at ZCS. “It’s actually modeled after a program I was involved in while teaching in Michigan,” Oakley said. As field trips and other extracurricular classes were being taken away by budget cuts, educators and parents came up with a way to make sure students were still able to receive unique learning opportunities. “If we couldn’t take field trips, then we were going to bring the field trips to the students,” Oakley said. The whole premise of ZCS-BRAVO is to take what Parent-Teach-


er Organizations have been doing for years and expand upon it. “I think our PTO’s do a great job at organizing parent volunteers. ZCS-BRAVO will just take that same commitment and expand it to the entire community,” Oakley said. For example, Oakley said while in Michigan, she was a health teacher and every year she’d teach a unit on death and dying. Since they couldn’t take a field trip to a mortuary, Oakley was able to access a volunteer database and find a mortician who was willing to come into her class to give her students a first-hand account. She said ZCSBRAVO will work in a similar way. “In Zionsville, we have so many highly-skilled, interesting people, so we wanted to provide an opportunity to bring them into our schools,” Oakley said. ZCS-BRAVO is kicking off with the 2013-2014 school year and volunteers are needed. If you’re interested in learning more, go to the ZCS website at On the homepage, you’ll find a link for volunteers. The ZCS-BRAVO website will have an interest survey so people can talk about what special skills they might have or areas of interest. It’ll also ask whether a volunteer would rather volunteer districtwide or at a certain school. Anyone who volunteers will have to undergo a criminal history check. After the data is uploaded to the website, teachers will then be able to search for people who could give more insight on a certain topic that’s being discussed. Teachers also can create a needs list for the types of

EXAM PREP SAT • PSAT • ACT Personalized, one-to-one tutoring designed specifically around the student’s strengths and weaknesses.

SUBJECT TUTORING • Pre-algebra • Algebra • Geometry • Trigonometry • Pre-calcus

• Calculus • Biology • Chemistry • Physics • Spanish

volunteers they might need. “We want to give our teachers as many resources as we can to help our students,” Oakley said. Not only will ZCS-BRAVO enhance learning opportunities for students, it’ll also give members of the Zionsville Community a chance to share their talents with the younger generation. “It’s all about sharing knowledge and filling a need for real world experiences,” Oakley said. As with any new program, Oakley said there will be changes, but right now, the main focus is to recruit volunteers who have all different kinds of talents and skill sets. You can even volunteer if you’ve had a certain experience like serving in the military. ZCSBRAVO is looking for people who can help bring to life a topic that’s being discussed in the classroom. This program also is looking for volunteers who might want to help with after school programs or special events. If you’re interested in learning more about ZCS-BRAVO, Oakley said she would encourage people to email her at volunteer@zcs. Oakley said hopefully the ZCS-BRAVO program will grow and other school districts will want to start similar programs. The ZCS-BRAVO program is the type of creative thinking school districts will have to continue doing in the future. Not only does this help bring real-world experiences to the classroom, it also helps students make connections and learn how important it is to give back to the community you live in.

New board chair continues vision By Janelle Morrison •

After a 15-year tenure, the founding board chair for University High School and Zionsville resident Sandy Lange has stepped down and Jeff Lewis, a founding board member, has been named the private high school’s new chair. Lange was one of five original board members who began meeting in 1997 and after two years of extensive research they established an independent, co-educational high school that would offer an alternative college preparatory solution to high school students. The founding members recognized the growing need for more independent high schools that were specifically nonsectarian. The board, since opening its school in 2000, maintains its primary focus on its students. The board and their faculty continue to promote an open atmosphere where students are encouraged to exchange ideas, own their education and engage daily with their fellow peers and educators. The entire school community meets daily for an assembly discussion and announcements that nurture the sense of investment into each other’s concerns, achievements and ideas that affect their school community as a whole. The school is recognized for its outstanding curriculum, specifically its foreign language and mentoring programs. The Head of School, Chuck Webster, spoke on the importance of the mentoring program.

“The mentoring program is something in which all of us do, everybody has mentees,” Webster said. “The basic frame work is that they meet for 45 minutes, one-on-one, every two weeks. If you’re a ninth grader, you’re going to have four years of conversations focused on how you can become better as a student, a person, and how you can take charge of your academic life. We did a radical thing, driven by this board. A normal load for teachers is to have five classes and we decided to have our teachers have four classes and their fifth responsibility be mentoring.” As a result of the board’s vision and efforts, along with those of their faculty, University has a 100 percent college acceptance rate. This year’s freshman registration has met its capacity at 75 students for the first time in its history. There are 278 students enrolled for the 2013-1014 school year.

After several weeks of summer vacation, your child should be heading back to school rested and determined to make the advice most of his or her potential. As a parent or guardian, you can facilitate this mindset by setting goals in each of the areas that are so important to academic achievement. Here are some suggestions: Raise the bar Whether your child is an excellent, capable or struggling student, earning the best possible grades should be one of the most important goals. This means envisioning certain targets and committing to the hard work it takes to reach them. If your child had relatively good study habits, worked moderately hard and earned B’s and C’s last year, set a goal to earn all A’s and B’s this year. In most schools, this GPA level will qualify for the honor roll, signify that your child is performing at grade level, and show that he or she is wellprepared for increasingly difficult work. If your child is already an A/B student, set a goal to earn all A’s and do everything possible to help achieve that goal. If your child struggled last year and ended up with C’s and D’s, talk with teachers right now about the subject areas that proved most troublesome so they can shape their instruction and find the extra help your child will need. Create and stick to a firm study schedule From the beginning of the school year to the end, study time should be part of your child’s daily schedule. This should be a certain time, every weekday and one day on the weekend, when your son or daughter completes homework, prepares for tests and engages in “free-choice” learning to explore special learning interests and aptitudes. Keeping on schedule tends to be easiest if this is the same time each day of the week, with more flexibility on the weekends. If you’re like many families, you should find it easier to stick to this schedule if it’s aligned to your child’s biological learning clock. This is the time after the end of the school day when your son or daughter is most alert and attuned to the learning process. Some students may need to jump into study time and “get it over with” as soon as they get home from school. Others may need a break for physical activity or socializing before they’re in the right mindset to buckle down and make best use of the time. Effective sequencing will make this time more productive. Homework assignments should be completed first. Studying for upcoming exams – including those scheduled for the next day or in the next week or so – should come next. If all the homework is done and your child tells you there’s no test to study for, he or she should fill the rest of the schedule with independent learning activities that could include reading, working on an extra credit projects or utilizing the Internet and other resource materials to explore special interests. Take action when trouble lies ahead If your child is struggling to understand quadratic equations or the symbolism in a novel as-

A study schedule is a must. (Stock photo)

signed for an English Literature class, the problem may go beyond simply not paying attention or not applying enough effort. You should encourage your child to alert you whenever he or she is struggling and then talk with teachers to see what kind of extra help is available. This may include some remedial work to build or strengthen basic skills, or the use different teaching strategies to convey concepts in a way that better suits your child’s learning style. Taking action early is absolutely critical – you don’t want to find out about a major learning issue the day before a big test, or at the end of a quarter when it may be too late to address the problem. Get an extracurricular boost While academics should always be job number one, extracurricular activities also can expand your child’s learning horizons and strengthen the impression he or she will make on college admissions applications. Reading groups, language clubs, political campaigns, academic competitions and volunteer projects can extend your child’s natural aptitudes and interests and pack a lot more learning into the day. These activities also can lead to stronger friendships and connections to your school and community, which can give your son or daughter a stronger sense of wellbeing and purpose. Maintain a can-do attitude Your child’s self-esteem can be a very big factor in social and academic success. Students who truly believe in their abilities are in a better position to overcome bad test scores and master especially difficult coursework. You can foster this self-esteem by showing how much you value your son or daughter’s hard work and accomplishments. When your child gets a bad grade, position it as a temporary setback, not a failure, as long as he or she learns from the experience, and make sure that major successes are acknowledged from the beginning of the year to the very end.

Creating successful schools

Commentary by State Sen. Luke Kenley

In the 2013 legislative session, the General Assembly approved many initiatives to encourage growth and development legislation in Hoosier schools. One of these laws takes that goal a step further by focusing on administrators and their impact on a school’s success. When you consider the various roles a principal plays, it’s no surprise that an effective one can make a major difference in a school’s ability to reach its students. A recent study by Harvard- and Stanford-based education journal Education Next found that an effective principal can improve student performance by the equivalent of two to seven extra months of schooling. If an administrator is significantly ineffective, however, he or she can negatively influence student achievement by a similar amount. This trend is especially important in high-poverty and low-performing schools where an effective principal can have the impact of an additional seven months of learning. But, when our school principals do not have the proper tools to become better leaders, they often aren’t aware of ways they can improve. And if a school district doesn’t have the means to get these resources, administrators are sometimes unable to find them on their own. To solve this problem, our legislature passed a new law that established the Indiana Principal

Leadership Institute through Indiana State University’s Bayh College of Education. At the Institute, participants learn from a wide-ranging curriculum that focuses on many features of school leadership. This includes developing personal goals, improving building-level dynamics and using action research. Additionally, the program facilitates support networks of mentoring administrators and participating principals, which will extend beyond the Institute itself. The Institute’s first class will accept 50 principals. Participants will be required to attend five seminars each year of the two-year program, and school corporations must contribute a onetime $1,000 fee to solidify the commitment of the principal and superintendent. School districts may nominate a principal if the superintendent and school board believe he or she has the potential to improve their school, are supportive of positive change in the school and will allow data collection to occur. It’s my belief that this program will better prepare principals to lead, which can only create higher performing schools. That means better results for our students, teachers, parents and the community as a whole. I look forward to seeing how the Indiana Principal Leadership Institute’s first class performs and the positive impact of their efforts. To learn more about the program and apply, visit

Interruptions didn’t impact score

In response to widespread problems associated with CTB McGraw-Hill’s administration of the high-stakes ISTEP+ this ISTEP+ spring, Indiana Supt. of Public Instruction Glenda Ritz hired Dr. Richard Hill of the National Center for the Improvement of Educational Assessment to review the results. Among other things, the report shows the following: • Because of the efforts of Ritz

teachers, administrators, students and parents, as well as the swift and decisive actions taken by Ritz, the average negative statewide impact on scores was not measurable. However, this does not mitigate the effect the interruptions had on students, parents and teachers throughout Indiana. • At this time, the exact impact of interruptions at the individual, classroom and teacher level cannot be ascertained. “First, I want to acknowledge the extraordinary efforts of Indiana students, parents, teachers, administrators and the employees of the Dept. of Education,” said Ritz, a Carmel resident. “Because of their dedication and hard work, the impact of these interruptions was limited. However, let me be clear, the problems with the ISTEP+ contractor were absolutely unacceptable. Every student deserves the opportunity to take a fair and uninterrupted assessment.” According to the report, Westfield Washington, Carmel Clay, Hamilton Southeastern and Zionsville Community schools students had 5 to 15 percent of its students experience computer interruptions during ISTEP testing in Spring 2013. Noblesville Schools reported 0 to 5 percent of its students were interrupted while taking the tests. “Although Dr. Hill’s report found that the statewide average score was not affected by the interruptions, there is no doubt that thousands of Hoosier students were affected,” Ritz said. “Because of this, I have given local schools the flexibility they need to minimize the effect these tests have on various matters, such as teacher evaluation and compensation. I have also instructed CTB McGraw-Hill to conduct enhanced stress and load testing to ensure that their servers are fully prepared for next year’s test and ensure that this never happens again.” The DOE is conducting an ongoing negotiation regarding settlement with CTB McGraw-Hill. Next steps for the department include processing student reports to be available online to parents and students, and calculating A-F accountability results.

Ensure a successful year By Dr. Raymond J. and Eileen Huntington

As the most important “coaches” in our children’s race to achieve, there are three key steps we can take to prepare them for the journey ahead. Create a learning space tips Studying is hard work, even more so amid the myriad distractions of television, technology and other factors that may get your child off-track. Establishing a quiet, neat, well-lit space for studying will help your child focus on homework and significantly enhance their ability to retain material. The seating area should be moderately comfortable — with a straight-backed chair that will keep your child relaxed but alert as opposed to soft upholstery, which can encourage drowsiness. Establish a learning schedule Setting aside a designated period after school or in the early evening that is to be used only for schoolwork is a strategy that has been proven effective for countless students throughout the years. There are several factors that can influence the decision about which time is best. One of the most important relates to your child’s rising and falling energy levels. Some children, for example, may complete homework more successfully by beginning immediately after school, leaving the rest of the late afternoon and evening for other activities. Others may need time to “wind down” after being in school all day before they’re relaxed and focused enough to complete homework successfully. Another factor is your child’s schedule of extracurricular and athletic activities. Set the stage for effective parent-teacher communication Begin by either going to the school to introduce yourself, or calling or writing a note. Speak forthrightly about your child’s particular strengths and interests and areas in which he or she may need extra help. Make sure the teacher knows how to get in touch with you. Communication will be much easier if the teacher knows your name, has your phone number and e-mail address, and is aware of the best time to reach you during the day and evening.

Guiding freshmen toward success Commentary by Dr. Raymond J. Huntington

If your teen is about to begin high school, you may be concerned about the transition. High school, after all, brings higher advice academic expectations and is a significant time of change for most students as they grow into young adults. As a parent, how can you help your teen survive and thrive his or her first year of high school? Here are several tips: Get to know the support staff Establishing good advocacy relationships at the outset of high school will be important during the next four years. Encourage your teen to stop into the guidance counselor’s office early on. If he or she feels a connection with a teacher, seek that teacher’s advice and help. Your support will certainly be important throughout high school, but your teen should establish a team of individuals to whom he or she can turn throughout the high school years. Don’t wait for help High school isn’t easy for everyone - be sure your teen understands the long-term consequences of falling behind and poor grades, and knows that he or she can and should ask for help. While high school teachers expect students to be more independent, don’t let your teen wrongly assume he or she shouldn’t seek assistance during tough times. He or she should visit the teacher outside of class and get outside

tutoring help if needed. Let your teen know you are there to help when they feel overwhelmed by a difficult subject or issue. Get organized If your teen isn’t a naturally organized person, now is the time to improve those organizational skills. Help your teen set up a reliable system of keeping track of papers that come home. If they have a desk, teach them to keep it tidy and consistently put things in their proper place so that homework time is productive, not frazzled. Make sure your teen establishes a study routine and sticks to it. Work on time management Perhaps your teen has grown used to you helping manage his or her time, giving frequent reminders about outside commitments, homework and project due dates. Let your teen take the reins now. Teach him or her to make use of a planner or calendar to stay on top of homework assignments, upcoming tests and other obligations - and plan ahead properly. Guide him or her on this early in high school, but let him or her take responsibility quickly.

Filmmaker wants to tell good stories

By Mark Johnson •

7 Boone Village Center Zionsville, IN

317-873-2234 Monday - Friday 9 a.m. - 6 p.m. Saturday 7 a.m. - 12 p.m.

Kate Chaplin is the real deal. During an interview, the topics run the gamut of what Chaplin refers to as geek silver screen culture: movies, sci-fi, cult TV shows, comic books. . .oh yeah, and filmmaking! However, what makes Chaplin the genuine article is her passion for telling good stories. That passion is summed up in Chaplin’s latest feature film, “Ingenue,” a science fiction story that touches on themes of humanity and, what Chaplin calls the “strength of family.” So, what was the impetus for Chaplin’s passion as a filmmaker? “I got interested in film when I was 10 years old,” she said, with a combination of humor and humility. “I was watching a marathon of Charlie Chaplin films on TV. There’s a part in the movie, ‘The Gold Rush’ where Charlie Chaplin eats his shoe! I knew he hadn’t really eaten his shoe, but I thought, ‘How did they do that?’ I wanted to know how they made it look so real!” Chaplin’s interest in film, preceded the rise of the internet and the age of instant information. “I did the only thing I could do at the time,” she said. “I went to the library and checked out some books. I’m a big fan of books. I learned more about filmmaking from books than any other medium. That’s where I learned how Charlie Chaplin ate his shoe. It was made of licorice!”

Filmmaker Kate Chaplin will screen her first feature film at this year’s Gen-Con on Aug. 17 in Indianapolis.

Yet, there was also another television marathon that caught Chaplin’s attention: “The Twilight Zone.” “I’ve always been a fan of sci-fi,” she said. “I love ‘Star Wars’ and ‘Star Trek.’ What amazed me about the ‘Twilight Zone’ as I watched one the marathons was just how story-driven each episode was. Those stories were the inspiration for ‘Ingenue.’ That’s what I wanted to achieve, a solid story that would be a throwback to the old ‘Twilight Zone’ episodes.” When the conversation turns to the state of the filmmaking industry today, Chaplin believes

that independent films should lead the way. However, that doesn’t mean she doesn’t enjoy a good popcorn flick. “I think there needs to be that balance,” she said. “You have the movies when you just turn off your brain and enjoy it, then you have the movies when you say, ‘I want to think about what I just saw.’ A steady diet of just one of those is not healthy!” Chaplin endeavors to contribute to that balance through Karmic Courage Productions, the company which she owns and co-manages with Amy Pauszek. Does Chaplin have any advice for aspiring filmmakers? “Yes,” she said, enthusiastically. “I tell them to make a movie! There are so many resources at their disposal. That’s what is so cool! You can make movies on an iPhone now! I tell them to use all the resources they have, involve all the people they know. The more movies you make the more you learn.” As for Chaplin, her mission remains constant. “When people leave my movies, I want them to say ‘That was a good story!’ That is always my main goal.” For more information on Kate Chaplin, her films and her production company, visit www. Kate Chaplin’s first feature film, “Ingenue,” will screen at this year’s Gen-Con at 8 p.m. on Aug. 17 at the Westin Hotel in downtown Indianapolis.

Have you stopped dancing?

Commentary by Jeffery P. Schoonover, M.D.

Do you have aching, painful or restless legs, heaviness, swollen ankles or muscle cramping? Have you stopped envein health joying dancing or other physical activities because of leg pain? If so, you may have varicose veins. More than half of all women and about 45 percent of men will suffer from varicose vein disease in their lifetime. A family history and aging increase one’s tendency to develop varicose veins. Other factors include a sedentary lifestyle, weight gain, prolonged standing and pregnancy. Phlebology is the specialized field of venous medicine, recognized by the American Medical Association, which deals with varicose vein disease and related conditions. Vein disorders are not always visible to the naked eye so the first step is to have an examination and diagnostic ultrasound to determine the cause and severity of your vein problems. The treatments to eliminate varicose veins and all vein abnormalities have improved dramatically in recent years. No longer do most patients need to endure painful surgical vein stripping. State-of-the-art corrective treatments include endovenous laser treatment, sclerotherapy, ultrasound guided sclerotherapy and microphlebectomy. With these procedures, there is minimal downtime and no sedation so patients are able to return to their daily activities immediately. Heightened risk – A study from the College of Medicine has found that height in postmenopausal women could mean a higher risk of cancer. The study found that a 10-centimeter increase in height is associated with a 13-percent cancer risk increase. – www.

EVLT eliminates the abnormal saphenous vein, which is the source of most varicose vein issues. Using ultrasound technology, a thin laser fiber is guided into the vein through a very small opening to deliver energy to the diseased vein wall, causing the vein to close and eliminating backward blood flow. Sclerotherapy is a treatment in which a tiny needle is used to inject veins with a medication that irritates the inner lining of the vein and causes it to close. Ultrasound guided sclerotherapy uses ultrasound technology to locate the veins below the surface of the skin while the medication is injected. This procedure is often used in addition to EVLT. Microphlebectomy is a method of removal of varicose veins at the surface of the skin. Small micro-incisions are made next to the vein and sections of the vein are removed through these tiny nicks. This is performed in the doctor’s office using a local anesthetic. Results are immediate. There is no way to completely prevent varicose veins, but if you’d like to keep dancing, watch your weight, exercise regularly, eat a diet high in fiber and low in salt and wear compression stockings.

Truth is one, paths are many

Commentary by Sally Brown Bassett, Ph.D.

Several years ago in Nepal, I stood on a small bridge with former First Lady of Indiana, Judy O’Bannon, overlooking on the mat a traditional Hindu funeral prye with the burning of the body and Buddhist prayers flags waving in the wind on the other bank of the river. It was one of those moments of solitude on a trip where I was in awe of how alike we all are, but also how different. For most people on this earth, there is one truth for them. But, as we know, there are many paths to get there. Whatever we call our higher source, it is all the same. It is with great respect that I have prayed to God on the banks of the Ganga River in India with hundreds of spiritual individuals, listened to the beliefs from our own Native American Indians in South Dakota, visited more cathedrals across the globe and lit candles too numerous to count, meditated in Muslim prayer rooms in airports around the world as a Christian, sung gospel songs around camp fires with rural women in Uganda, sat with monks in silence throughout Asia and learned about religions wherever I have traveled. The truth is when we find a connection to something greater than ourselves, it is a place of peace but getting there are many paths. This is the same as in yoga. When we search for contentment, calmness and inner peace, there are

many choices to pursue based on what fits your personality, needs and desires. Students can leave a restorative yoga class, where you spend most of the time laying down, or a power yoga class with that same sense of peace. Since yoga is a science and not a religion, the Eight Limbs of Yoga provides us with a path that can take us closer to God. Before we ever get on the mat we look at external and internal values. The postures get us prepared physically to eventually sit in prayer and meditation for long periods. We then prepare for a deeper level of withdrawing from our senses and going within. The last three limbs of yoga leads us on a path to focus more on God, regardless what religion. While many people might pray in church/ temple once a week, these tools enable God to be in our lives every minute of the day. The sixth limb is concentration or prayer/talking to God. The seventh is meditation or listening to God. And, the eighth limb is Samadhi or simply being with God. Wherever you are in life, find your truth. Until next time… Namaste!

Stop trying to be perfect

Commentary by CJ McClanahan

Every month, my firm hosts a workshop in Fishers that is attended by between 75 and 125 professionals. A few weeks move the needle before the July event, our sign-ups were down about 75 percent. We assumed that everyone was on vacation and decided to cancel the event. The morning of the canceled event, I began to receive messages from people who showed up to the facility wondering, “Why is no one here? Did you cancel the event?” Apparently, plenty of people had signed up, we just had a glitch in our system. Yikes! I felt absolutely terrible. We quickly went into damage control and held an impromptu meeting to figure out what happened and ensure that we fixed the issue. I hate mistakes. They are embarrassing, cost money and can damage your brand. But, they are absolutely necessary. In fact, I typically find that the more successful you are, the more mistakes you have made.

In other words, stop trying to be perfect. Your growth depends on the pain associated with failure. The key to your success is figuring the best way to deal with your errors. I have some simple strategies that will help you out. First (and this is the hardest), embrace the blunder and take 100 percent responsibility for whatever took place. Don’t even think about blaming someone else. Next, document the most important two to three lessons you learned. It’s not enough to recognize and discuss them with someone else. You need to write them down. Finally, forget about it. Once you’ve documented your lesson learned, there is absolutely ZERO value in dwelling on the error. As with most things in life, the solution is simple. All you need to do is execute.

Repurpose me, darling

Commentary by Nikki Blaine

Have you been watching Project Runway this season? Well, you may have noticed the smart looking fellow from MilwauFashion kee, Wisc., named Timothy Westbrook. Well, he appears to be the repurposing king this season. He has a crafty niche recycling materials to create wearable fashion. I must admit, I was impressed to see him recycle cassette tapes into a fashionably chic garment. Nevertheless, there isn’t anything new going on under the sun, just a new approach in doing it. Even when it appears to be industrial-like, now there’s a purpose for it from a fashion perspective. Did I say industrial and fashion in the same sentence? Why, yes! Carol Marquiss tested my repurposing skills by repurposing the Zionsville Super Bowl Banners in 2012. Oddly enough you would not consider having that type of vinyl in your closet, but guess what? It worked! That once distinguished banner designed for welcoming visitors to Zionsville, Indiana, now sits proudly as a handbag. Sometimes repurposing can be as simple as adding a lace trim or any trim to make a garment pop or maybe breathe life into something that’s been lying dormant in your closet. When repurposing, you can transform and re-work anything. Here are some tips on how: For an old T-shirt, grab a pair of scissors and

Setup or set up? Commentary by Jordan Fischer

Question: “Jordan: Keep up the good work with your grammar column. If I don’t read anything else in Current, I read your article. Comment on “setup” vs “set up.” I believe I know the differgrammar guy ence, and I see it used (what I think is) incorrectly many times.” (Peter Fruehman) Answer: Thanks for writing in, Peter. The theme for the column lately seems to be noun versus verb forms, and this question fits right into that. “Setup,” as you probably know, is a noun. It has a lot of wordy definitions, the best being “the manner in which the elements or components of a machine, apparatus or system are arranged, designed or assembled.” More simply, “setup” is how things are put together: “The setup for prom looks great.” If you’re a fan of noir or mobster documentaries, you know that “setup” can also mean something done “by deceit or trickery in order to compromise or frame someone.” In certain circumstances (computers come to mind) “setup” can also be used as an adjective: “Run the setup program.” “I lost my setup disk.” “Set up,” on the other hand, is a verb through and through. It means to “establish, cause, lay plans for or place in an upright position.” You can set up a lawn chair. You can set up your child with a college fund. Eating breakfast can set you up for a successful day. Etc. If “setup” is the way things are put together, “set up” is actually doing the putting together. “Set up,” like “setup,” can also mean “to put someone else into a compromising situation by deceit or trickery.” It’s simply the verb form. One last note: “Set-up” is not a word. So don’t use it.

Bosra, an ancient city in southern Syria, contains the world’s first minaret, a basalt structure inspired by a Christian bell Travel tower. A monk from Bosra may also have been the inspiration for the religious views of Muhammad, the founder of Islam. Egyptian records from 1400 B.C. refer to Bosra, which eventually came under the control of the Nabateans, the people of Petra. The Romans, who captured the city in the second century, made Bosra the capital of their Arabia province and built a still functioning 15,000 seat theater. Lying along the Roman road from Damascus to the Red Sea, Bosra later became a major Christian city, with a large sixth century cathedral attesting to its importance. In 580 A.D., Muhammad, then about 10 years old, reportedly stopped in Bosra with his uncle, a Meccan caravan driver. While there, Muhammad met with a monk named Bahira, who taught him about Christianity from the Nestorian (or perhaps Arian) perspective. Nestorian and Arian Christians rejected the belief that Jesus had been born divine and that Mary was the “Mother of God,” arguing that the notion of God producing offspring through a human mother had unmistakably pagan origins. As a result, they were considered heretics by orthodox Christians living further west.

Loudspeakers atop the seventh century minaret in Bosra still call the faithful to prayer. (Submitted photo)

According to Islamic tradition, Bahira told the young Muhammad he was destined to correct the mistaken views of orthodox Christianity about the nature of Jesus. The Quran, which Muhammad said came to him from an angel, says, speaking of God, “Far be it from His glory to have a son.” So similar is this and comparable statements to the claims of Nestorians and Arians that some scholars believe the Quran builds on the tenets of non-orthodox Syrian Christianity Bahira taught Muhammad in Bosra, noting that Syrian Christians both then and now refer to God as “Allah.”

Today, Bosra is a city of about 20,000 people, some living among the ancient ruins. Loud speakers atop the seventh century minaret still call the faithful to prayer. And most visitors leave unaware that the roots of Islam may lie in this once Christian city and its unorthodox monk. Don Knebel is a Zionsville resident who works for Barnes & Thornburg LLP.

Decorating layer by layer

Commentary by Vicky Earley

I have heard designers say that every beautiful room needs to start with a rug. I have read advice in decorating magazines stating Interiors that a palette is the beginning. I disagree with both schools of thought. I believe that the first item that the foundation should be is the one that sets the mood, evokes the strongest emotion, and says the most about the room. The first layer is a textile that takes your breath away. It is far easier to plan a color around a beloved fabric than to search through acres and acres of fabric books for a textile that will work with an arbitrary color. More often than not, that incredibly beautiful fabric that has stolen your heart will come packaged with a breathtaking price tag. Fear not. Remember that is just one fabulous fabric and when mixed judiciously with moderately priced fabrics, it elevates all the players in the room. When it comes to mixing, most homeowners are quite comfortable with pairing a pattern with a solid. Beyond that, the thought of adding more strikes the heart of design cowardice, and that is where an average room and an amazing room part ways. . This inspiration fabric should have at least three colors which can be blended with two or more additional fabrics. Vary the fabrics with contrast, texture, scale, sheen, and pattern. Leave your fear behind and experiment with different fabric samples until you find a combination that feels comfortable with the balance of color, scale and pattern. Once identified, move ahead bravely with a plan of where they will be used. Spread the fabrics around the room to create balance. For example, if you use your

The second fabric could be used as a duvet cover and for window shades and to upholster one chair. Your third fabric might be a luxurious solid linen that can be used to trim the window treatments, make shams or throw pillows for the bed and to cover a bench at the foot of the bed and the second chair.  Don’t forget that your walls and floor coverings are additional areas for color, pattern and scale. Consider those elements, as well as the style and scale of your furniture, when planning your perfectly layered room. Vicky Earley is the principal designer for Artichoke Designs in Carmel.

FASHION POLICE We uncovered the 5 fashion rules you should NEVER break, according to InStyle magazine. 1. Never show visible panty lines (VPL). This is inexcusable! Opt for seamless underwear or a thong, and make sure your pants aren’t too snug. 2. Just because its trendy doesn’t mean you should wear it. Not everyone should wear every trend. Pick and choose what is best for your personality and body type.

We believe in introducing you to many other team members in the salon, hoping that you will feel comfortable visiting any stylist or any technician based on appointment times that are most convenient for you.

3. Don’t bare your midriff unless you’re at the beach. Make sure your shirts aren’t too small so your midsection remains covered.

Salon 01 offers French Hair Cutting. We use this method because we believe that this system gives softer, more feminine layers that are complimentary to the face shape of the guest.

4. Never buy shoes that don’t fit. Suffering in the name of fashion is never a good idea! If they don’t fit in the store, chances are you will be miserable trying to wear them for an extended period of time.

If you’re like us, your hair may have been damaged from too much sun, chlorine or saltwater. Here are some tips on how to turn things around for this fall:

5. Don’t pay attention to sizes. There are no international guidelines for sizing. No one can see the size that appears on the tag, so don’t stress! Depending on the store or brand you may have a range of numbers that appear in your closet.

1. Ask your stylist about in-salon hair conditioning treatments. Professional conditioning treatments can virtually reverse the ravages of summer-induced damage. Your stylist can recommend a regular regimen over the next several weeks to almost completely restore the integrity of your hair.

2. Get a good, healthy trim. It is time to start thinking about your new fall hair style anyway. While you are at it, get some of the damaged ends cut off. Your hair will again feel healthy and vibrant with just a nice trim. 3. Start using a leave in conditioner on a daily basis. Get in the habit now to help promote healthy, hydrated hair all year long! Remember, when all that fun in the sun starts to take its toll, it is important to take care of your tresses, after all it is the most important accessory you own! A stylist at Salon 01 would be happy to recommend an in-salon and take home conditioner that is right for you!
