Fall Frolic to benefit students and teachers By Julie Osborne • julie@youarecurrent.com

The 2012 Fall Frolic, sponsored by the Zionsville Education Foundation, will be held Saturday at the Indianapolis Executive Airport. The event is a fun, casual evening which provides grants for students and teachers in Zionsville schools. “It’s one of two fundraisers we have for the year,” said Fall Frolic co-chair, Kara Swinford. “Our spring fundraiser is a fashion show, but this one is for couples. It’s casual so the men love it since we keep it light and laid back, and all the money raised goes to grants for students or teachers.” The fun begins with various food stations, provided by Jacquie’s Gourmet Catering, featuring a meat-carving slider station, “mashtini” make-your-own potato bar and waffle on a stick desserts. New this year are the Mystery Wine Pull, a live auction with a $6,000 package to Vail, Colo., and the Heads and Tails game of chance. Delicious food, live music, and fun activities are not the only features of the evening. “The highlight is when the grant recipients speak and share how they have been affected by ZEF grants,” said Tracy Phillips, executive director of ZEF. “To hear kids say, ‘This changed my life,’ validates what we do here at ZEF.” ZEF was founded in 1995 as a nonprofit entity separate from Zionsville schools but dedicated to supporting Zionsville public education by providing grants to students and teachers to promote academic excellence. “The monies raised by the Fall Frolic and our other projects

The bottom line is that we’re raising funds and every dollar goes back into the classroom,” Phillips summarized. Purchase tickets online at www.zionsvilleeducationfoundation.org or contact Tracy Phillips at tphillips@zcs.k12.in.us or 733-4805.

Duke Realty associates prepare softball field editorial@youarecurrent.com

Associates from Duke Realty Corp.’s Anson development in Whitestown volunteered their time on Oct. 12 to help prepare a softball field for community use in Panther Park. The eight-person team of associates pulled back and removed existing grass to create the infield for the softball field, which will be filled with fresh materials next spring. “Duke Realty supports the city of Whitestown’s desire to connect the community through recreational offerings,” said Charlie Podell, Senior Vice President of Duke Realty. “As a corporate citizen of this community, we want to do our part to help improve the city’s outdoor venues for its residents.” They were joined by Whitestown Town Council President Dawn Semmler and Angel Badillo of True Temp Heating & A/C, who supplied and operated the Bobcat machine. The volunteers joined Craig Anderson, who oversees the southern portion of Duke Realty’s Anson community, and Mark Hosfeld, who manages AllPoints at Anson. “The city of Whitestown has been very supportive since we embarked on the Anson development five years ago,” said Anderson. “They have been great partners, working with us to make Anson

received the 2013 report on class sizes from the district’s Chief Operations Officer, Bob Bostwick. Bostwick reported that as a result of the successful operating referendum, the district was able to fill 25 teaching positions to help restore science and reading programs and lower class sizes generally. Referendum funds will not be received by the district until the spring of 2013, so the Board had previously authorized the use of the Rainy Day Fund to allow for the class size and program improvements to occur during this school year. Class sizes have improved across all levels but still remain larger overall than prior to the start of the district’s cost-cutting efforts in 2008. This is consistent with the intent of the School Board in selecting the size of the operating referendum earlier this year. Full restoration to traditional class size goals and programs lost to budget cuts would have added more than $1.5 million annually to the referendum request of $4.7 million. Instead, school officials chose to seek moderate levels of improvement over a three-year period, which won the support of the community’s voters. For more information visit zcs.k12.in.us.

1. Prevent Future Referendums after 2015 2. Live within our means (Like the rest of us) 3. No more rubber stamping budgets or spending - asking the tough questions & giving answers to the community 4. Maintain small class sizes by retaining teachers 5. Pay down debt - stop building unnecessary facilities

The Incumbents Plana :

1. Seek more equitable state school funding 2. Keep low class sizes 3. Safeguard taxpayer dollars 4. Balance the school’s budget 5. Accountability of teachers and administrators

The Incumbents Plan - Unanswered questions:

1. It is unlikely that this will happen. What is your Plan B? 2. Agreed. But what is your plan to do this in a fiscally sustainable way? 3. How is raising property taxes considered safeguarding taxpayer dollars? 4. How is increasing property taxes through a tax referendum, and depleting the rainy day fund “Balancing the Budget�? Why are you hiding the actual deficit from the community? 5.

Zionsville West PTO announces grants editorial@youarecurrent.com The Zionsville West Middle School PTO recently presented more than $8,000 to the school for enrichment grants this semester. Grants were awarded for all grade levels and will have an immediate impact by providing both essential items and unique experiences to the 858 students at ZWMS. “We prefer to focus our grants on unique classroom enrichment items and activities that will impact the greatest number of students and be able to be used for multiple years,” said Enrichment Co-Chair Laura Williams. “Of course, with all of the school budget cuts in recent years, some of the requests are also for more basic items, such as field trip transportation and new outlets in the art room,” she continued. “The generosity of our parents and community allows us to provide our students with materials and experiences that are no longer funded through traditional sources,” said Principal Kris Devereaux. “The work of our PTO is invaluable to our continued academic success.”

Grants awarded

• Field trip transportation for all grade levels ($1,404.68) • Sara Ellenz, Stacy Bales, Shannon Eaton & Diane Aurand – Materials to support “Book Whisperer” lessons ($540) • Kayleah Maddock – Hot Dots standards-based math question cards ($130.48) • 7th and 8th Grade STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) teachers – Wacom Bamboo Connect wireless whiteboards ($750) • Jeff Zurawski and Lauren Heath – Drop down ceiling plugs for using electronic media in the art room ($1,743.02) • Cathy Sutton – New releases and other supplies for classroom libraries ($2,000) • Tammy Nowakowski – Music system for PE classes ($200) • Tonya Taylor and Andy Knueven – High interest texts for struggling readers ($500) • Resource and OT teachers – Monthly activities for skill development ($200) • Stacey Huffman, Katie Elliott and Missy Stringham – Math manipulatives to reinforce learning ($334.75) • Libby Rease – Materials to create a Museum Walk ($150.90) • Janet Ostendorf – Monthly Math and Science magazines ($342.47)

Dr. Gupta is an experienced, board certified surgeon specializing in laparoscopic procedures, endoscopies, colonoscopies, breast procedures and other general surgeries.

Dr. Gupta’s interest in medicine began at a young age when she became fascinated by biology — especially that of animals. At first, Dr. Gupta considered becoming a veterinarian, but as she learned more about human anatomy, she realized becoming a medical doctor — and specializing in human health — was her true calling.

Dr. Gupta believes the best way to maintain good health is through preventative care. “I believe it’s more important than ever for people to have preventative health screenings — especially colonoscopies and mammograms. These screenings save lives.” Therefore, if you are at high-risk of colon cancer, meaning someone in your family has had the disease, it’s important to get a colonoscopy screening 10 years prior to the age at which your family member was diagnosed. Dr. Gupta is currently welcoming new patients, to schedule call 317-582-8061.

Observing Veterans Day Commentary by Ward Degler

November 11 is Veterans Day in America and Remembrance Day in England. The holiday began as Armistice Day on the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month in 1918 – the exact moment World War I ended. At that time, both nations marked the armistice with two minutes of reverent silence. The first for the nearly 20 million men who died during the war, and the second for the widows and children they left behind. At the end of World War II, America changed the name to Veterans Day and the two minutes of silence was moved to the Sunday closest to November 11. Both nations still honor their veterans today with tributes at cemeteries and lecture halls and always with that short period of profound silence. The VFW has long marked the day with the sale of red paper poppies made by the residents of veteran’s homes. The poppy symbolizes the red flowers that bloom so abundantly around the national cemetery of Flanders, Belgium. The veterans of World War I are all gone now and a diminishing few remain from World War II. Other wars have come and gone, and those veterans too remind us that freedom is never free, and that whenever it is threatened, young men and women will continue to take up arms and march into harm’s way. And if you are looking for a quiet way to honor the veterans of all wars today, it might help to know that it took you approximately two minutes of silence to read these words.

Ward Degler lives in Zionsville with his wife and dog. He is author of “The Dark Ages of My Youth … and Times More Recent.” You can contact him at wdegler@comcast.net.

Given the continuing constraints on the state’s finances,…it is unlikely that it will be possible to see additional financial resources made available to public schools.” (c) - Student funding is dictated at the state level, NOT at the local level The annual school budget is $67,000,000 (d).

Cover Story

Examples of the food and art on display at the Artisans' Fare

Artistic Feast Unique treats and cuisineinspired art make the Artisans’ Fare a food lovers delight By Julie Osborne • julie@youarecurrent.com Hand-dipped gourmet truffles, peanut butter laced with trail mix and flax seed, exotic cooking oils and spices are just a few of the delectable treats featured at this year’s Artisans’ Fare to be held Nov. 16 and 17 at the SullivanMunce Cultural Center. “What makes this event unique is how we bring together both food artisans and visual artists that all have a passion for food into one event and provide the opportunity for attendees to experience the world of food from beginning to end. Whether it be in how it’s prepared to how it’s presented on the table we have something for everyone,” according to co-chair Lee Anne Shiller.

Variety of handcrafted gift items

In its third year, the Artisans’ Fare brings the community together to kick off the holiday season in an intimate setting with gift ideas galore. From unique coffees, teas, honey, and a variety of confections to handmade pottery and glass-blown vases, there is something for everyone. What makes this event unique is that it’s all about food, not only the edible products but also the visual arts which are designed with food-related themes on various mediums including wood, paint, pottery, paper and glass. Every item is handmade

Hand-painted trays by local Indiana artists will be auctioned off at the Friday Preview Party

with the artisan’s creative signature. “So many people are interested in food without a lot of preservatives that is not mass produced. We have only Indiana vendors that make handcrafted products. It’s fun and you learn some things by sampling new combinations you wouldn’t normally try. Last year, one vendor served balsamic vinegar over ice cream, and it was delicious,” according to Cynthia Young, SullivanMunce Art Center director.

New this year

This year will feature previous favorites such as Artisano’s Oils and Spices, but there will also be new vendors including Inga’s Popcorn. There will be a new twist to the silent auction held at the Friday night preview party. Created by some of Indiana’s best artists, 18 hand-painted serving trays of various styles and designs will be auctioned off. A jazz quartet will also create the ambiance on Friday night as guests stroll through the gallery and enjoy hors d’oeuvres and libations. “I so enjoyed attending the Artisans’ Fare preview party last year, sampling the specialty food items, talking with the artisans, enjoying the ap-

petizers and admiring the art that I volunteered to help plan the event this year”, says co-chair Patricia Scott.

Benefits SullivanMunce Cultural Center

Not only is the Artisans’ Fare an opportunity to get a jump on your holiday shopping and add something to spice up your Thanksgiving table, but it is also a chance to support the SullivanMunce Cultural Center, which netted more than $12,000 at this event last year. “The funds raised by the Artisans’ Fare are used to support programming including exhibitions, classes and programs that contribute to the community’s rich culture and encourages members of the community to explore their own creative expressions,” according to Young. The center was originally founded in 1966 as the “P.H. Sullivan Foundation” as a result of a bequest from Iva Etta Sullivan, the greatgranddaughter of Patrick Henry Sullivan, one of the early settlers in Boone County and the town of Zionsville. In 1981, the Mary Eliza-

Current in Zionsville

beth Munce Art Center opened in the building next door and, in 2003, a new logo and name, SullivanMunce Cultural Center, was adopted. According to its Web site, “The Sullivan Munce Cultural Center, including the Sullivan Museum, Genealogy Library, and Munce Art Center, features a wide range of exhibits, events and programs to celebrate the culture of a historic town where the past is preserved and the future is embraced.” Here, residents can seek assistance researching family genealogy or learn the story of their historic Zionsville homes. Also available are a variety of art classes for all ages ranging from ceramics, drawing, watercolor, printmaking, and paper making to adult sewing and jewelry making. The gallery also has permanent and revolving exhibits along with a boutique year round. “Our goal is always to raise awareness that we’re here and this event helps us do that,” says Young. Whatever the reason – raising money and awareness for the cultural center or enjoying a night out sampling delicious food while searching for a unique gift in a cozy, intimate environment – this year’s Artisans’ Fare is not to be missed. Scott sums it up, “The Artisans’ Fare uniquely brings together a select group of very talented food and visual artisans who have an undeniable and inspirational passion for what they do. I love food – good food – and the way it brings people together in a relaxed way to experience life.”

Artisans’ Fare Preview Party • Friday, November 16 • 6 to 9 p.m. • $50 per person ($40 is tax deductible) • $200 Artisan Sponsorship (includes two tickets) • Live jazz and silent auction • Hors d’oeuvres and libations will be served

Backshop’s picks for Election Day

Correcting Political Correctness It is our position that political correctness should be reexamined in America. As voters head to the polls in one of the most polarizing elections in history, semantics more than economics may very well drive how ballots are cast. Some may think a vote against the current regime is considered racist. Will exaggerated sound-bites regarding the issue of a woman’s right to choose sway voters without ever examining the real motives driving the topic? Is socializing medicine the best way to provide equal access to health care for all Americans? And, should it be equal? According to global work environment research done by J. Michelle Sybesma of Professional Skills Consulting, Inc., political over-correctness may actually begin hurting America in the global economy because the control over office politics has stretched far beyond the initial focus of business needs. The principle of pleasing everyone is simply not realistic. How are we to truly understand each other’s differences if we aren’t allowed to recognize that differences do exist? As Americans, we should not be afraid to ask questions of each other and should be encouraged to do so. A little candor may very well be what America needs. Go to the polls on November 5.

Commentary by Terry Anker

While we love our home and being there, it seems that days go by without ever sitting down to a meal. And though I lament this reality, there is so much good happening on the other side of our front door to which receptivity is warranted. So we gather our family and go into the world. Heartland Truly Moving Pictures gave us such an opportunity just this past week. Our family had been in Brown County for much of the weekend, enjoying the turning autumn colors and the company of good friends. But we dashed off to tux up and attend the annual awards gala as the guest of a dedicated board member. It would have been easy to have demurred. It would have been easy to pass on another event. But as so often happens, we are certainly glad that we did not. Heartland’s film festival has become an Indianapolis and now international mustdo. The winning film “Cairo” illustrates the reality of sexism in the Muslim world. Check it and others out at www.trulymovingpictures.

org. Urbane people and talented filmmakers would have been enough to make this evening worth the effort, but it held another moment. At dinner, a guest we’d just met was announced as recently becoming a US citizen. We welcomed him to the fold and asked him to share his story. It seems that while he’s lived here more than two decades, he felt it wrong to remain longer without casting a ballot. Wow. He’d built a business, raised a family and paid taxes without complaint. But decided he could no longer, in good faith, call this place home without fulfilling his obligation to vote. While delighted by his choice, one is chilled by the millions of “natural” Americans who are not able to make the same commitment. Please go to the polls.

Tuesday will prove a momentous occasion on many fronts. Here is whom your favorite newspaper owners endorse (and why): President – Mitt Romney, perhaps by a wider margin than previously thought possible. We believe he’ll have a laser-like focus on the economy. Plus, he’s not an enemy to small business. President Barack Obama’s policies, frankly, scare us. We believe Romney will shore up defense and justice, two areas in which we strongly place stock. U.S. Senate – We’re going with State Treasurer Richard Mourdock. As much as we were (and still are) aghast at his comments about “God’s will,” we believe he will march to Romney’s fiscal conservancy beat. Does that mean we just want him added to the conservative side of the aisle? Yes, it does. U.S. House of Representatives – Susan Brooks gets our nod. Some call her a graduate from Republican Clone School. We don’t see her that way. She is an independent thinker, and we believe she will be heard. Governor – We like Mike Pence and his fiscal conservancy. We view him as the one most likely to not significantly alter the course charted by the accomplished Gov. Mitch Daniels (who, we still believe, should be running for president in Romney’s stead). Indiana Attorney General – Greg Zoeller is our guy here. He filed suit against the Obama administration for foisting ObamaCare on us. We don’t need it. Indiana Schools Superintendent – It is incumbent Tony Bennett vs. Glenda Ritz. Bennett has put in place reforms (not nearly enough), while Ritz stands for uprooting teacher evaluations and ISTEP, and she is against voucher expansion. It’s Bennett for us. Whether our endorsements are correct is unimportant. What IS important is that everyone gets out to exercise his or her right (and responsibility) to vote. Polls are open from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. Please do your part. Brian Kelly, publisher, and Steve Greenberg, general manager, are co-owners of Current Publishing, LLC.

Gift ideas coming up

Commentary by Danielle Wilson Listen up, good people of the northern Indianapolis suburbs: I. Am. About. To be. Famous! I am officially announcing my brand new book (published by Current Publishing and Dog Ear Publishing, $14.95) titled, of course, “Peace Out!” Love me? Buy my book and relive, or read for the first time, hilarious, select columns from my early years. Hate me? Buy “Peace Out!” and have a good ol' fashion Nazi book burning party. I don’t really care, just buy my book! Look, I’m not at all shy about promoting myself. I really want some new leather boots and a trench coat, and those things just don’t show up at my door for free, unlike Current, which gives you weekly access to the life and times of moi and where you can also find my Web site to buy my book! Without the extra cash generated by my soon-to-be bestseller, “Peace Out!,” I’ll have to stick to the budget and only spend money on generic cereal, book rental fees, travel soccer dues, and pap smears. Not fun, my friends, so not fun. So do your part in helping me become more fashion savvy (and famous)! Buy my book! Better yet, buy a bunch of copies and send them to your friends. The holidays are just around the corner; why not give the gift of me? You’ll be a hero, they’ll be thrilled, and I’ll be rich. It’s a win-win-win when you buy, buy, BUY! In all seriousness, “Peace Out!” will appeal to anyone who has ever called him or herself a

spouse, parent, sibling, an adult child, a hemorrhoid sufferer, Unisom addict, plastic surgery recipient, hunting widow, homeowner, an aunt/ uncle, a Democrat, a mini-van owner or a Mommy-on-the-edge. I’ve selected my favorite rants from the last five years and organized them into ten delicious chapters for your reading pleasure. Keep it on your nightstand for a quick chuckle before bed or stash it in the loo for some entertaining potty humor. But wait! There’s more! I’ve also included a bonus section including the best hate mail you’ll ever read. Who knows? Your comments could be in it, though you may not recognize yourself because I’ve changed everyone’s names to protect your sorry, saggy be-hinds. The point is, I’m offering a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to board my spaceship to fame while it’s still here on Earth. Ten years from now, when I’m carousing with J.K. Rowling, Nora Roberts and Oprah (she spans all genres), you can say, “I remember when her first book came out! She signed it for me at [insert local coffee shop/bookstore/library/gas station]!” “Peace Out!” (Now available online at www.danielle-wilson.com, Amazon and Barnes & Noble).

Naysayers are uninformed

Time for new blood

Editor, With all the easily accessible data available to us locally, at the state level and nationally on behalf of our education system, naysayers of the current Zionsville school district leadership seem uninformed and haven’t offered solid options as to how they will balance the budget without firing teachers or raising taxes. Their motivations seem to not be in the best interest of our students or the town of Zionsville. Thank you to Burgess and Wingerter for having the courage to continue to keep our children and town progressing forward towards success and continued prosperity by protecting our students, our home values, and the family-friendly atmosphere that we have come to expect of Zionsville. It is those things that have made Zionsville one of the crown jewels of Indiana. Debbie D. Forbeck, 46077

Editor, The election for school board is not about who you wave to at church on Sunday or sit next to at soccer practice. I have no doubt that the current school board members are very nice people with great families and concern for the schools. Volunteering time for worthy causes doesn’t make a candidate qualified to handle the large budget numbers of the Zionsville School District. We need new blood on the school board with strong business acumen and financial experience. Thanks to those who have served but it is time for financial professionals to fix our financial mess so we may protect the future of our students. The students can keep their popularity contests, I will be voting for common sense on election day. Shawna Reynolds, 46077

Time for change Editor, The United States president is limited to two four-year terms in office. The Indiana governor is limited to two four-year terms in office. The Zionsville Town Council ‘s elected members are limited to two four-year terms in office. The

Zionsville School Board’s elected members have no term limits. On Tuesday, one school board incumbent is running for a sixth term. After 20 years on the board, isn’t it time for a change and a fresh perspective? Kathleen Fon, 46077

FailuretoPlanisPlanningtoFail On November 6th, we are all responsible for electing two members to the Zionsville School Board. CBZ has summarized the candidates’ plans for critical issues posed by the Times Sentinel.* Normally, we research—and then endorse—candidates we feel will best champion our town. In this case, the research speaks for itself. See you on the 6th.

Arthur Kipps (Daniel Scharbrough) and The Actor (John Michael Goodson)

Spine-tingling chiller hits Civic’s stage Submitted photos

Commentary by Hope Baugh

If you enjoy ghost stories – not blood-and-gore slasher tales but creepy, elegant, unexplainable GHOST stories – you must see the Booth Tarkington Civic Theatre’s production of “The Woman in Black.” I loved this show. I left the theatre thinking, Wow! Part of my “wow” was prompted by the actors. There are only three but they are excellent and they fill the theatre. Dan Scharbrough plays Arthur Kipps, a tormented solicitor who hires a professional actor, played by John Michael Goodson, to help him prepare to tell his story to his family so that he can get it out of his system and sleep without nightmares. “We’ll make a Barrymore of you yet,” says The Actor, but Mr. Kipps insists that acting is not his forte, that he only wants to improve his delivery enough to make his family understand what happened. As the two men develop Mr. Kipp’s manuscript into a theatre piece, each plays more than one character. They brilliantly tweak their British accents and their costumes (designed by Jean Engstrom) to fit. Sara Mark plays the silent title character. My shoulders hunched up in a shiver every time she appeared. My “wow” was also prompted by the design of the show. The first thing we hear is a child’s laughter. It is happy but also somehow haunting, perhaps because we can’t see much. The only light at first is the tiny kind they used to leave on in theatres so no one would trip in the dark. Ironically, such lights were called “ghost lights.” There are boxes and buckets, and larger things covered in drop cloths, some partially hidden behind curtains. Ryan Koharchik’s set and lighting design holds us in the shadows like a bully, teasing us with what it will or will not reveal, and Michael J. Lasely’s sound design heightens the suspense as well. This atmospheric piece will be most appreciated by teens and adults, rather than little kids. It was adapted by Stephen Mallatratt from the novel by Susan Hill. It was directed for Civic by Robert J. Sorbera. It runs through Nov. 10 at the Tarkington Theatre in Carmel. 18 | November 6, 2012

A game of one-upsmanship One-upmanship can be defined as the art or practice of successively outdoing a competitor. In our case the competition is not the opposing team, rather it’s the other tailgaters in our parking lot. Way back in 1992, I remember when a man attached a flag pole and flag to his minivan. His flag, sporting the team name and logo, waved in the fall breeze. The next game, another tailgater had a larger flag on a higher poll. Week after week the “war of the flags” rose to higher levels. Finally after all parties had taken things up to the highest level money could buy, one man arrived and dealt the coup de grâce. He brought an inflatable mini blimp, in team colors. He filled it with helium gas and let it rise to the sky, easily more than 100 feet. The blimp was tethered to his vehicle by a long rope and on the rope hung a huge team flag. The war of the flags was over! So much for one-upsmanship, right, or should I say “yeah right!” To try to make one’s tailgate set-up bigger and better is a natural male urge that must be allowed to run its course. Eventually, after accumulating tents, canopies, coolers, sound systems, themed vehicles, and bigger and better grills, each tailgater will start to realize that a tailgate party is a social event, not a competition. It’s a time to relax. Don’t get me wrong, it’s

still fun to watch rookie tailgaters compete with one another, but for now, when we speak of competition it’s about having better food. Here’s a great cold weather dish that will stand out as the best food in your parking lot. It’s called bœuf bourguignon, or Beef Burgundy.

Ingredients: 2 to 3 pounds good beef (like chuck steak) cubed, 1/4 cup canola oil, 10 or more small onions peeled, but whole, 1 teaspoon kosher salt,1 pound fresh mushrooms, 1 bottle burgundy wine Prepare: Trim all the fat from the beef and then stir fry it in a large stew pot. Remove these pieces of fat with a slotted spoon and then add the cubed meat and oil. Brown this mixture for 20 to 30 minutes. Add the salt and onions and then cover the mixture with the wine and simmer 30 minutes. Clean the mushrooms with a brush and then slice them into thin profile slices. Add these mushrooms to the mixture and then cover with the remainder of the wine. Simmer 30 minutes longer and then take one piece of beef and taste it. If it’s tender and full of that rich wine taste, it’s done. If not tender then cook it longer.

The Amazing Spider-Man • PG-13, 136 minutes Commentary by Chris Lloyd For an absolutely unnecessary reboot of the web-slinging superhero franchise, “The Amazing Spider-Man” is terrifically well-done. It attacks the character of Pete Parker, a nerdy kid who gets bitten by a radioactive arachnid, from a darker perspective than the previous trilogy. Andrew Garfield, taking over the lead role from Tobey Maguire, draws a portrait of a socially ostracized kid who was probably headed to a lonely life of despair if he hadn’t been turned into a non-caped crusader. Becoming Spider-Man teaches him harsh lessons about responsibility – particularly after his believed Uncle Ben (Martin Sheen) is slain because of his inaction – but it also helps him come out of his shell, especially with regard to lady love Gwen Stacy (Emma Stone). The heavy here is Dr. Curt Connors (Rhys

Ifans), a scientist who becomes Peter’s mentor as they try to unlock the secret of transferring the regenerative power of reptiles to humans. It does help Connors regrow his missing arm – but also turns him into the fearsome, toothsome Lizard. Director Marc Webb was an unlikely choice for a big-budget action film, his only other credit being the indie romance, “(500) Days of Summer.” But Webb and the trio of screenwriters have made something genuinely new out of something old. Please note, “The Amazing Spider-Man” will be released on video Friday, Nov. 9. Movie: B+

New approach to hip replacement surgery Commentary by John Hur, MD Recently I began using a new method to perform hip replacement surgery, known as the Direct Anterior Approach. This new approach allows me to reach the hip joint from the front of the hip as opposed to the lateral (side) or the posterior (back) approach. This way, the hip can be replaced without detachment of muscle from the pelvis or femur during surgery. The greatest benefit to this approach is that the most important muscles for hip function, the gluteal muscles that attach to the pelvis and femur, are left undisturbed and, therefore, do not require a healing process to recover from surgical trauma. This decreases the amount of pain a patient experiences and also reduces complications, such as problems with hip dislocation. With less pain and improved function, most patients are able to return to normal activities sooner, if not immediately. In comparison, conventional hip replacement surgery approaches require splitting and/ or detachment of muscles that control motion of the hip and help prevent dislocation. Trauma to these muscles causes pain and swelling that takes time to heal in order to recover function. Typically, this requires six to 10 weeks of rehabilitation and restrictions of not flexing the hip beyond 90 degrees, which affects basic activities like sitting, crossing the legs, putting on shoes and driving an automobile. It is also common

for patients who undergo conventional hip replacement surgery to experience dislocation of the hip due to the weakening of the muscles that are detached during surgery. The direct anterior approach to hip replacement has been around for some time. In fact, it was first performed in Europe in 1947. Since that time, the technique has been continually refined with advancing medical technology. The most significant advancement that was made was with the creation of a special, stateof-the-art surgical table that allows surgeons to perform the procedure with ease. Today, literally thousands of hip replacement patients have benefited from this minimally invasive approach in Europe and America. Unfortunately, not all patients are a candidate for this type of hip replacement surgery. It is particularly difficult to perform on patients that are overweight or who have distorted anatomy. Patients should ask their orthopedic surgeons if they are familiar with the direct anterior approach and if they are an ideal candidate for that type of hip replacement surgery. Only an orthopedic hip replacement specialist can make a proper assessment.

Insurance

Knowing the ins and outs of flood insurance Commentary by Jamie Ianigro Question from Lindsey J. from Fishers: All the flooding and problems from the hurricane have got me thinking about a flood policy. We have a basement and have never had any problems in the ten years we’ve lived in the house. What do you think? Response from Jamie Ianigro: Issues: The first thing you need to know about flood insurance is what the policy covers. A flood insurance policy will protect your property from flooding accompanying hurricanes, heavy rains and melting snows. A standard homeowner’s policy specifically excludes coverage for all of these things. The other thing you need to know about flood insurance is what it doesn’t cover. Flood insurance doesn’t cover water that rises up through your plumbing. This type of loss is protected by using an endorsement to your homeowner’s policy called sewer & drain backup. A loss from sewer & drain backup can be just as damaging as a flood loss. Coverage Recommendations: Most of Hamilton County sits in a moderate-to-low risk area when it comes to flood risk (you can check your risk at www.floodsmart.gov) and qualifies for coverage at the preferred rate. This policy will protect your house and its contents starting as low as $129 per year. It takes 30 days after purchase for a flood policy to take effect, so don’t wait until

the water starts rising. Sewer & Drain backup coverage is a simple endorsement that you may already have included on your homeowner’s policy right now. Standard coverage usually starts with limits of $5,000. If you have a finished basement, $5,000 is probably not going to get you back to where you would like to be. We usually recommend upgrading that coverage to $10-25,000 to make sure you are adequately covered. Higher limits are definitely available. The cost of this endorsement varies by carrier, but is usually a very low percentage of the total cost of your policy. Claim Prevention: The most important thing to know is when to cut and run. Your family’s safety is much more important than a house or anything you have in it. The steps you can take to prevent flood claims are pretty easy and you’re probably already doing them. First make sure your sump pump is working and has an adequate battery-powered backup, in case it loses power. Next, make sure your gutters and downspouts are free and clear of debris and obstructions. Lastly, make sure your downspouts are getting water far enough away from the house that the water is not returning. Jamie Ianigro is with Shepherd Insurance & Finanacial Services.

Grammar Guy Capitalization in titles and degrees LIFESTYLE

Commentary by Jordan Fischer

Incorrect, over-enthusiastic and, frankly, odd capitalization decisions are mistakes we see frequently in the editing world. I think most people remember the basic rules from English class: Do capitalize the first word of a sentence, proper nouns, the first word of a quotation, titles that precede a name, days of the week, etc. Don’t capitalize the seasons (spring, summer, fall, winter), compass directions unless referring to specific regions (For example, Alabama is in the South, but it is south of Indiana.), or general subjects in school (math, physical education, health). Of course, the beauty of our world is that there is so much more to write about beyond the basic rules. This is also the area where mistakes start to slip in. A big source of confusion for many people seems to come from titles and academic degrees. As I mentioned earlier, I believe most people are comfortable with what to do with a title that precedes a name: you capitalize it. For example, assuming you are reading this column on Tuesday and are 18 years old, hopefully you voted or will be voting for either President Barack Obama or Gov. Mitt Romney today (or, you know, Mickey Mouse if you’re a Disney anarchist). While the choice might be difficult for some, the rule isn’t. If a title comes before a name, capitalize it. What if the title is somewhere else, though,

or there is no name attached to it? What if, for example, your choices on the ballot were Barack Obama, president of the United States, and Mitt Romney, former governor of Massachusetts? Since the titles follow the name, they are considered to be used as descriptors and thus no capitalization is needed. Similarly, were you to refer to the candidates as the president and the governor, you would not capitalize their titles. The exception, since there must be one, would be if you are addressing one or the other directly, in which case you would say Mr. President or Mr. Governor with a capital letter. College degrees follow very similar capitalization rules. If they precede a name – Bachelor of Arts Jordan Fischer, for example – they get to be capitalized. If they follow a name – Jordan Fischer, bachelor of arts – they don’t. As I’m typing this, I notice that Microsoft Word wants the latter degree capitalized as well. Just ignore that little green squiggly; we’re smarter than the computer on this one. As a final note, academic subjects in degrees follow the same rules as normal: Capitalize proper nouns like English and French. Don’t capitalize general courses like mathematics unless referring to a specific course: Algebra II, Modern Dance 101, etc.

Indoors

Vive creates project individuality

FALL GIVING

Commentary by Randy Sorrell Great vision coupled with forward design ideas can completely transform a home. And, that is what precisely happened in this nearly century old home nestled in the heart of Carmel. Ryan Coyle, landscape architect and proprietor of Vive Exterior Design, is completely responsible for this inspiring delight that is too comprehensive to manage in a single article. Expect another visit in spring 2013. Until then, lets enjoy how the entry to this ranch has been updated to something Ryan refers to as “modern / rustic,” which respects both the authenticity of the house and the neighborhood. The edgy, cedar entry pergola splashes galvanized steel as overhead members that echo the galvanized half round gutters and downspouts…a definite shout to a previous era when materials were real, and felt that way. COOL! The same architectural arbor element was repeated on the south side of the house and brilliantly flows as an extension of the primary entry arbor. NATURAL ROCKS Not content with a traditional sidewalk, oversized slabs of natural stone carry marveled visitors under the entry pergola and to the front porch. These 2’x3’ beauties are often locally sourced and installed on a bed of sand for proper drainage. The rich tones of chocolate, coffee and caramel are repeated in the several

tons of boulders responsible for grade transition and offer plenty of warm curb appeal and native planting opportunities. Knowing Vive is to realize that there is much more to the story and his families’ residence. I can’t wait to share that with you next spring. Meanwhile, if you discover yourself driving east on Smokey Row Road from Rangeline Road, at the crest of the hill and beyond the church, witness fresh evidence of what an exciting design / build / landscape vision can do.

Indoors Uncork creative ways to store wine INSIDE & OUT

F. C. Tucker Company’s

SHOWCASE OF HOMES TalkToTucker.com

Commentary by David Decker

Innovations in appliances, cabinetry can help you store wine with style It’s time to think outside the barrel and explore a few creative ways to store wine in the kitchen. From custom racks, to cubbies to chillers, there are a number of ways to keep your wine fresher, while adding a touch of style to the room. Wine is a notoriously delicate beverage when it comes to storage. To preserve taste and freshness, it needs to be stored in a temperate, slightly humid location. If it’s kept too warm or too cold, it may spoil. Additionally, a lack of humidity can dry out the cork and allow air to seep into the wine bottle. It’s best to store wine with the bottle tilted horizontally to the side. With such a sensitive product, it’s important to keep all of these factors in mind when selecting a storage solution for wine. Wine racks have traditionally been the easiest method of storing wine. But instead of purchasing a standalone wine rack, many homeowners are choosing to integrate them directly into cabinetry. Decorative racks made from latticework are available and can be installed above countertops or a refrigerator. Or you could choose to install a series of cubbies underneath a counter or alongside the cabinets. Either way, these cubbies will store your wine vertically and protect the bottles from UV rays. Consider installing these racks or cubbies away from ovens or sources of heat, as these can

degrade the wine over time. Wine can also be elegantly stored on custom wall shelves or racks. Many of these racks can be creatively designed and can act as a wall accent as well as a storage unit. If you are an enthusiast who serves wine often, you may want to invest in a wine refrigerator or chiller. These appliances can come in many different shapes and sizes, and some models allow you to adjust the temperature zones to accommodate different types of wines. Wine refrigerators can even be placed underneath countertops or hidden behind a cabinet door to save space. For a fun touch, you can place miniature wine refrigerators or racks underneath a kitchen island and design your own custom wine-serving center, perfect for entertaining or dinner parties. No matter how you decide to store and display it, I think we can all agree the best part about wine is drinking it. Happy tasting!
