Diane Williams, of Business District Inc., asked the pivotal question of the 40 people who attended the Downtown Zionsville Parking Study survey and Market Analysis, “How do we get those who come downtown, to stay downtown?” From the numbers that were shown, parking is under-utilized. According to Peter Lemmon of TADI, turnover, or the change in parking during the course of the day, was about 2.3 hours per stay mid-week and 1.6 hours on Saturday mornings. Lemmon explained that a utilization percentage of 85 indicates maximum efficiency in parking and anything greater reflects an inconvenience to the customer. The highest percentage of utilization produced was 63 during the noon hour midweek and 51 on Saturday at 10 a.m. The percentages decrease thereafter. For several reasons, those who shop or dine downtown don’t stay. Of the 901 survey respondents, 25.6 percent dines downtown in an average month, while almost 50 percent spends $75 or more on meals outside the home in an average week. Nearly 80 percent would spend more if there was a larger variety of stores from which to choose, such as specialty food (prepared or ethnic) stores, and if there were longer shopping hours. Of the seven days, the survey defined Saturdays and Sundays are the most convenient days to shop; 78.5 percent and 68.1 percent, respectively. Attendees were asked to view the survey comments of three areas: strengths, challenges and opportunities, and to identify if they were accurate and provide additional feedback. The majority of the discussion in each group appeared to have a central theme: to keep the unique and authentic setting “on the bricks” while developing a strategy to stay competitive and capable of differentiating their product or service. To add some levity at the end of the meeting, participants submitted a “headline” of what Zionsville could become. “Zionsville, healthiest town in Indiana,” “Zionsville Central School Volunteers Town Cleanup,” “Zionsville – All Open on Sunday,” and “Charge Your Electric Car Free While Downtown Zionsville.” Charlie Edwards, president of the economic devel-

DVD review “Planes” isn’t the standard movie you expect from Pixar Animation and Disney. The tale of Dusty Crophopper (Dane Cook), a humble crop-dusting plane who dreams of competing in the Wings Around the Globe race, is a familiar litany of just-be-yourself pabulum, goofy sidekicks and whiz-bang action scenes.

Genelle’s daughter-in-law Heather is direct, “The tumor was pressing on her spinal cord. I knew things had to happen quickly.” At Community North, they did. “She wasn’t getting responsive care where she lived so we flew her up here. The next day she was seeing the doctor,” says Heather. The affiliation between Community Hospital North and East and MD Anderson Cancer Network™ is what impressed Genelle and Heather the most. “When you find out MD Anderson is number one* in the nation it removes any doubt,” says Genelle. Heather adds, “My sense of confidence came from their sense of urgency.” Cancer is proof that there are no dumb questions. So keep asking. And take comfort in knowing that the answers start here. For a referral to a participating physician, call 800.777.7775. To learn more about Genelle’s story, visit eCommunity.com/cancercare.

BF Clarks Variety and Hardware Store and Zionsville Opera House - Located above the BF Clarks Variety and Hardware store was the Zionsville Opera House (now Plum’s Upper Room Restaurant). In 1884 BF Clarks made the Opera House available as a part time roller skating rink open on Thursday and Saturday evenings. The most memorable events were lectures given in 1877 by Susan B. Anthony and Elizabeth Caddy Stanton, the nationally known “suffragettes,” in a standing-room-only crowd. Nationally known poet James Whitcomb Riley appeared in the Opera House in 1876-1877 under the auspices of the “Zionsville Literacy Club,” for which he received the sum of $10. The building later was damaged by fire. (Information and photos provided by the Sullivan Munce Cultural Center.)

God works in mysterious ways Commentary by Ward Degler

God works in mysterious ways. I’ve heard that all my life. Any time I would ask my mother about some imponderable thing such plain talk as, “why are sunsets orange,” she would shake her head and say, “well, God works in mysterious ways.” In addition to crediting God with such things as sunsets, rainbows and the four seasons, a friend recently pointed out some of His smaller mysteries. Even numbers, for example. I didn’t know that every watermelon has an even number of stripes on the rind. An orange has an even number of segments, an ear of corn an even number of rows, and every stalk of wheat an even number of grains. He regulates flowers too. Every flower is designed to bloom at a different time of day. Linnaeus, the pioneer botanist, once remarked that if he had a greenhouse containing the right mixture of soils, temperature and moisture, he could tell what time of day it was by the flowers that were blooming. Here’s one I learned as a sailor: Waves roll into

the shore 26 times every minute regardless of the weather; and regardless of which sea it is. Some pioneer ornithologist discovered that the hatching time of bird eggs varies. Canary eggs hatch in 14 days, chicken eggs in 21, ducks and geese in 28 and the parrot and ostrich in 42 days - all divisible by seven, the number of days in a week. Here’s something you can check for yourself: When a horse gets up, it rises first on its front legs. A cow, on the other hand, gets up first on its hind legs. What does all this mean? I guess it means that God works in mysterious ways. ••• For those of you on the edges of your seats wondering what my favorite newspaper headline was from last week’s edition, as it was inadvertently cut off in the edit, it is “Miracle cure kills fifth patient.”

Soccer teams raise awareness, funds This fall, the Zionsville Lady Eagles soccer teams hosted their third-annual Breast Cancer Awareness soccer games. More than 30 breast cancer survivors took to the pitch with players, celebrating their years as survivors and bringing awareness to the topic. Through the sale of pink t-shirts, cupcakes, wristbands and raffling off more than 40 hand-knitted scarves made by local community members, the teams raised $2,000 for the American Cancer Society Relay for Life. Pictured from left are Team Captains: Ellie Haydock, Emily DeCamp, Emma MacAbee, Michelle Hoppe, Amanda Miller, Courtney Gietl, Katherine Ratz and Katie Keen. (Not pictured: Catherine Schmidt.) Leaf Collection Continues – The schedule begins each week on Monday in the Village area, with crews working clockwise around Zionsville the rest of the week. Specific days of collection cannot be guaranteed due to the fluctuating volumes of leaves and weather. Residents are to deposit their leaf piles as close as possible to the roadways to ensure collection. This service will continue through the first week of December pending an early onset of winter weather. For questions, please contact 873-4544.

Repurpose, relocate and reuse

Carla Howie • carla@youarecurrent.com

Trying to keep up with the times can be costly. Ask any Zionsville Community School Board of Trustees member. In 1968 when the core of education the school was built, 63 students graduated. In 2012, 467 students graduated. When enrollment grows, it stands to reason the building may need to grow with it; especially when they’re an A grade school and the physical environment to learn therein can be a key factor. Projected future enrollment through 2023 from the Indiana Business Research Center indicate the high school will reach 2,500 students. Currently, the high school is at 89 percent of capacity and by 2017, it should reach the projected capacity of 2,100 students. With the proposed renovation, the high school will be able to reach the 2023 projection and accommodate growth beyond. Repurpose, relocate and reuse is the master design. A motion to approve the renewable resolution for a moratorium on new debt for school construction was unanimous amongst the board of trustees at the board meeting on Nov. 11. With judicious use of the 2005 bond series, the master plan of repurposing what is there for another designated use, relocating functions or classrooms to other areas on site and reusing available space is key to ensure the trustee’s intent to avoid new debt for construction. According to Bill Payne, executive director of Fanny and Howey, the architectural firm that

presented the diagrams and renderings of the finished project, indicated the band, vocal and orchestra program will relocate to the auxiliary gym. A student activity center will be built outside the varsity gym. This two-story center will be multifunctional; serving as instructional, athletic and rental space. Partitioned rooms can be created to accommodate smaller groups, if required. The weight room will move to the new activity center on the second floor and the space currently being used for advanced physical conditioning would be repurposed for instructional use. The ancillary space surrounding the new construction will include restrooms, additional instructional spaces and a satellite cafeteria/ educational space. Payne explained the design has streamlined the available square footage without eliminating the functionality of use. The construction project also will keep the same building aesthetics. To accommodate the increase in parking, the current tennis courts will be removed and repurposed for 160 new parking spaces. The existing football locker room and auxiliary outdoor activity space will remain. The board of trustees has done its due diligence to protect the taxpayers; the hope now will be that neither state nor federal mandates be imposed and any natural disasters or other unforeseen disasters occur beyond the trustees’ control.

Terry’s glorious colors

Commentary by Julie Osborne

It was not my plan. This year, I was holding out on holiday shopping until after Thanksgiving. But my work on Current’s coming Gifts 2013 turned personal as I uncovered unique gifts and surprising stories while wandering around town. As a writer, I love a good pen and found many options at Avalon Jewelers on Main Street. However, it was the small boxes stacked on shelves behind the counter Johnson that caught my attention along with the heartwarming story that went with them. “This was Terry’s creation,” owner Susan Schube said of her business partner, whose memorial service was just days earlier. “He decided inks were boring and said, ‘What if we make them in glorious colors?’” So he did. Right here in Zionsville with a local printer, bottles and chemist. “Private Reserve Ink” was born 10 years ago and now is available in more than 50 colors for fountain pens and sold through more than 250 dealers nationwide. Wherever I go, there is a story which usually catches me by surprise, and this was a perfect example. I was in search of a pen but instead found colors with a story that tugged at my heart. One thing Schube said speaks to the dedi-

WANDERING AROUND Z-VILLE

Where’s Julie this week?

cation and commitment I have heard from other merchants and residents in town. “We make a living here, we live here, and we support Zionsville,” Schube said with tears welling in her eyes. I wish I had a chance to meet the other half of her “we” - Terry, whose vision and creativity live on in glorious color. Julie Osborne is the special projects coordinator for Current Publishing.

Pete Ward, a Zionsville resident and Indianapolis Colts executive, is ‘truly one of the good guys’

Photo by Dawn Pearson

By Dawn Pearson • news@currentzionsville.com You know Andrew and Reggie and Donald and Vic, Darrius and T.Y. and Coby and Robert, but can you recall, the most “un-famous” Indianapolis Colt of all? cover story Meet Pete Ward, who has spent his entire career with the Indianapolis Colts. The past 33 seasons, Ward has taken the ride through the clandestine move from Baltimore, the victories and defeats, playing host to a Super Bowl and winning one. Yard by yard, Ward has moved his career chains and landed in the end zone, scoring big as the franchise’s chief operating officer in 2010. Although he’s not seen on the gridiron Sunday making plays, it’s his offensive and defensive business savvy and dedication that has helped make the Colts a world-class organization. Ward, a Zionsville resident, joined the organization in 1981 as a summer and seasonal intern in the team’s public relations office, and he was hired him as the club’s administrative assistant upon his graduation from the University of Virginia in 1982. Quickly promoted to director of operations when the team arrived in Indianapolis in March 1984, he is one of only three Colts to have worked in both cities. And not to beat a dead horse, because everyone knows the Colts left Baltimore in the dark of night to play in Indianapolis, here’s what he remembers about that cold day leaving Baltimore. “It was an emotional day, certainly one of mixed emotions and somewhat unsettling, but certainly as a young single guy not from Baltimore, my loyalty was to the team. It was exciting coming to a city so welcoming and it turned out to be a real blessing. … This is where I met my wonderful wife and where my kids were born.” A humble man brimming with as much sincerity as Indianapolis had hosting the “Best Super Bowl ever,” he explained that neither he nor his wife are native Hoosiers, but they absolutely love it here and Zionsville is certainly home for them now. Sue Kelly has worked for the Colts 30 years and describes Ward with warmth and admiration for his dedication and hard work for the Colts. “Pete was such a hard worker that many nights he slept in his office and would wake up and put on a wrinkled shirt and go back to work. We used to make fun of him in a good way, and then he

• Wife: Lena • Children: Madyson, 19; Sam, 17 • Born in New Orleans, raised in Carmel, Calif., but considers Zionsville his hometown. • Education: BS 1982 University of Virginia • Hobbies: Traveling anywhere, but first and foremost spending time with his family • Favorite aspect of his job: No question, “Kickoff on Sunday!” • Quote: “When I first moved here everyone told me I should live in Carmel … which is a great place, but I stumbled across Zionsville and never looked back.”

started sending out his shirts to the cleaners,” she said. “He’s a very kind, nice man and dedicated beyond belief to this organization and to his family and community. He’s truly one of the good guys,” Kelly said. FOR THE COMMUNITY The best aspect of being a Colt for him is to see how the Colts have become an active contributing element in the community. “We do so much, and I’m so proud of our players, coaches and staff because they make this state a better, richer place to live, he said. “I have seen Indiana become an avid football community, not all because of what happens on the fields, but what we do in the neighborhoods, schools and other charitable causes.”

And Ward’s volunteer and charitable contributions lead the charge. He is chairman of the Indiana University Melvin and Bren Simon Cancer Center Development Board; Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra, The Indiana Convention and Visitors Association and the Indianapolis Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors member, and locally he supports the Zionsville Youth Football League and has been involved in the Boys and Girls Club for 15 years. He also volunteers for the Zionsville Meadows, senior citizen retirement home and helps them with mystery trips to the Colts Complex and Lucas Oil Stadium and has decorated a sports center-themed room. As a young Colt, Ward quickly galloped into the vice president of administration job in 1997 and served as the point person for the team on the design and construction of Lucas Oil Stadium. He explained his longevity: “I love my work and it doesn’t seem like work. To be successful in this business first and foremost you must be a huge football fan. It’s not all glamorous. There is certainly a glam element, but it’s a lot of hard work, long hours and ultimately is comes down to 1 pm on Sundays. Kickoffs are the best part of my job.” Like the modest personality he his, Ward is thankful for his success and knows it has been a team effort. “You certainly have to have good people, working with you at all levels and everyone has to love their jobs because it’s a 24 hour job,” he said. “Back in the ’80s we used to have an offseason; honestly, we don’t have one anymore. The offseason is busier then the regular season. We’ve got to have good people and get along with everyone and treat them with respect because so many people contribute to making a successful football franchise.” And lastly the support of good ownership is vital according to Ward. “A NFL franchise is a mom-and-pop business, mostly family owned and success starts at the top,” he said. “You’ve got to have ownership that cares about employees and players and is willing to provide the resources to be successful.” The Colts record this year is 7-3 after another come-from-behind victory, 30-27 at Tennessee on Nov. 14, and the team is first place in the AFC South Division. Still, Ward won’t make any Super Bowl predictions. “I don’t like to talk about it because I’m superstitious; only one team makes it every year and the other 31 teams end their season.”

Badmouthing the wealthy

Since President Barack Obama loves to badmouth the wealthy, we thought we’d take a moment to defend them. Well, one of them, anyway. Bill Gates, of Microsoft fame (Yes, he built that!). As you may have heard, through the work of The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, he has helped to eradicate polio in India. Now, we know Obama won’t brag about this, but we will. Eradicated polio in India! Just to be clear, Obama is now increasing the taxes on people like Gates, thinking it is more important to send yet more money to Washington. Oh, sure, that money will be much better spent in D.C. But, we should be fair: Obama did eradicate any semblance of a viable healthcare Website, didn’t he? ••• Now that our Liar in Chief is backpedaling on his “If you like your (health-insurance) plan, you can keep it” promise, we continue to see more of Obama’s true character (or lack of it). We believe this all amounts to nothing more than a bait-and-switch tactic, which, in the private sector, is illegal. We also find it amusing listening to Obama refer to these soon-to-be-cancelled policies as sub-par. Well, shouldn’t it be our choice whether we want to keep a sub-par product? After all, if it weren’t for America’s love of all things sub-par, you wouldn’t be in office, Mr. President, would you? ••• Hey, just asking: Where did the Libertarian Party go?

Introduction

The art of not shaving Commentary by Terry Anker In solidarity with my fellow Y chromosomes, this year I am participating in the annual ritual known by the rather clever portmanteau, Movmember (http://us.movember.com). Much like the wearing of pink in October for National Breast Cancer Awareness Month shows solidarity and support for those affected by the disease, men are encouraged to allow the hair on their upper lip to grow unfettered for 31 days to bring forward discussions of prostate and testicular cancer and other health concerns related to males. While the international movement really only calls upon us to grow mustaches, I’ve decided to make the awkward transition from clean-shaven to burly by allowing for a full beard – perhaps to be reduced only at month’s end. Like much of life’s passage this has been a learning experience. Initially, I undertook the mission as more of a lark than a serious commitment. Having not seen my face under fur, it struck my curiosity. What I’ve found is that folks are very curious

as to why my normal, hairless facial appearance has been altered. Several times per day, conversations begin with some remark about the motivation for my unshorn countenance and end with often intimate retellings of how men’s cancers have affected them or those they love. In a whisker of time, I’ve learned formerly unknown personal details of men and women that I’ve known for many years. Sometimes the stories are heartwarming and other times they are tragic. But a silly beard turned out to be the key to open the dialogue. I’ve also taken note that these things itch – a lot. Those experienced in matters hirsute tell me that the sensitivity to my new outwear will pass in a matter of days. But even as the scratching diminishes, I hope our attention to men’s health remains.

I serve at the pleasure of … The original sentence follows with the word, president; however, that is not anywhere in my near future. But my community is. I’m Carla Howie, and it is with great pleasure that I assume the position of managing editor of Current in Zionsville. This allows me to combine my two loves: engaging with my community and building synergistic relationships. Current’s mission of connecting the community to events and people, creating dialogue on relevant topics and communicating local news is a perfect fit for me to serve the Zionsville community. In just the few short weeks I have been on board at Current, I have been to a town council meeting, a school board meeting, the marketing and parking study meeting and attended the merchant’s association meeting. In the coming months, I will be popping in at all the establishments along Main Street and beyond to introduce myself, as well as becoming familiar with the town’s organizational infrastructure. I will also establish “office hours” in coffee shops and anywhere else where community members can easily find me to begin dialogue. Originally from western New York, Zionsville is where I now call home. My experience in community involvement and communications from Cummins Inc. has prepared me to take this new venture. I’m excited and look forward to continuing the integrity and dedication in which we at Current keep our community informed and to elevate our level of engagement. I’d like to thank Julie Osborne for providing me a strong foundation from which to launch and I share her enthusiasm for Zionsville. Her shoes will be hard to fill, but I am up for the challenge. I encourage you to connect with me (carla@ youarecurrent.com) or call (910-2602) with upcoming events, current issues and points of interest that will help me in building a relationship with you.

Once more: Buy my book

little l bblack Dress D sEason

Commentary by Danielle Wilson

We are on the brinx of the holiday season and I haven’t yet put in a shameless plug for my book. (Gasp!) But no worries, I’m going to do it right now, leaving you plenty of humor time to make a huge dent in your shopping list and put some muchneeded ca-ching in my bank account. So without further ado … buy my book! Titled “Peace Out!”, this uniquely named anthology retails for an amazingly low, low price of $15.99, making it the perfect gift for friends and foes alike. Didn’t know I’d written one? Well now you do, so buy it. You can easily order 10 or 20 authentic copies at either Amazon.com or Barnesandnoble.com, and still have time to get your kids to basketball practice. What’s it about? Me, of course. Along with my bald husband and crazy kids and a since-deceased gecko, among other things. In a nutshell, “Peace Out!” is a collection of the best articles from my first three years of writing for Current. That means for most of you, it’s brand new hilarious material, including but not limited to, how Doo came to be called Doo and my infamous observations of a certain 2007 PTO fundraiser which nearly got me fired. Even if you’ve had the honor of reading my stuff since the beginning (lucky you), my book will be a glorious walk down memory lane.

I’ve been getting some peculiar e-mails lately. I realize this does not set me apart in any way. Let’s face it, if you have access to a computer and the Weird Wide Internet humor thingie – and that takes in about 85 percent of us – you’re going to get some e-mails that raise your eyebrows, with subjects ranging from untold riches awaiting in Nigerian bank accounts to methods of enlarging (or diminishing) various body parts, to faucets. No kidding. I get a lot of messages about faucets. It all comes back to something I’ve repeated at the dinner table every Thanksgiving for the last (mumble) years: Give us humans an amazing piece of technology, and we’ll find a way to abuse it. Invent the car, we’ll run it into a tree. Put the telephone in widespread use, and immediately someone will start calling during supper to ask for money. Come up with TV, and you’ll get 600 channels with nothing worth watching. We can’t help it. We are attracted to shiny things, but our first impulse always seems to be figuring out ways to take the shine off of them. It should be apparent that I am used to a certain amount of weirdness in my inbox. In fact, I may be more accustomed to it than most, just by virtue of not being wired the same as an average human. Even so, occasionally something

comes in over the transom that is unusual, even for me, and that gets me back to the beginning: I’ve been getting some peculiar e-mails lately. I open my mailbox and there they are. The sender: “Bra.” That’s all it says. Just “Bra.” The subject: “Buying a bra? Check out these tips.” Wow. Did they get a wrong number. I feel like writing back: Dear Bra: Thanks so much for your recent e-mail. It was very thoughtful of you to assume that I would need some tips about buying you, seeing as how I am a guy and can honestly say that this is one thing I know absolutely nothing about purchasing. However, upon reflection I have determined that I would like to keep it this way. Your pal, Mike. P.S. If you see your friend Faucets, tell him that I’m not interested in what he’s selling, either. Thanks. That should do it, don’t you think? Then I can go use the one feature of e-mail technology that I have come to appreciate most deeply – the delete button. But not before I claim all those riches awaiting me in Nigeria. Mike Redmond is an author, journalist, humorist and speaker. Write him at mike@ mikeredmondonline. com or P.O.

READERS’ VIEWS

Helping the cats Editor, Thank you for writing about the cats in the Zionsville Adult Village (Oct. 29 Wandering column). Based on your article it seems that you (Julie) may not be a huge cat lover. Your article did make me think multiple times over the last few days about the cats that live there. I am a cat lover and I am worried about their future and safety. I was just wondering if there was something that I could do or someone I could get in touch with to see how we can help them. There are spay/neuter options that would trap the

cats, spay them and then release them. This would be great for those that are adults and would not be adoptable. We could also catch the kittens to get them adopted. I would love to help the cats in any way that I can and would like to get in touch with someone at the (mobile home) park to see how we can help prior to the winter. Thank you, Lindsay Farley 46077 

Editor, This October, we celebrated 40 years in business in Zionsville. That could not have happened without the patronage of so many loyal customers year after year.  We would like to thank everyone for their continued support. We are honored to be a small

Hauling out the holly at Beef & Boards

By Karen Kennedy • karenk@youarecurrent.com As Auntie Mame says, “We need a little Christmas, right this very minute.” “A Beef and Boards Christtheatre mas,” is a healthy holiday dose of singing, dancing, festive costumes and, of course, turkey with all the trimmings. This year’s show features an all-new quartet presenting several new arrangements in a glittering celebration of the season. The show opens Nov. 29 and runs through Dec. 23. “This show is our Christmas greeting to the city,” said Beef and Boards spokesperson Patricia Rettig. “We have families who have included us in their Christmas tradition since their children first came to see Santa, and those children are in college now. There are thirty-two performances, so you really can’t miss it.” This year’s production features sixteen singer-dancers and an on-stage band of seven. Several of the lead cast members are currently in the cast of “Les Miserables,” including featured vocalist Kelly Teal Goyette, along with Bobbi Bates, Peter Scharbrough and Dominic Sheahan-Stahl. Newcomer Emily Rogge rounds out the group. Goyette, who made her Beef and Boards debut in “Les Miserables,” spends much of her time on the road. She hails from Williston,

Vt., but her home base now is New York City. Since 2008, she has traveled the country with national touring companies of “Annie,” “Grease”

and “Shrek the Musical.” “I’ve spent more time subletting my apartment than sitting in it,” she said. And Goyette said she is excited to be a part of the Christmas show. “I get to sing my favorite Christmas song of all time, ‘O Holy Night,’” Goyette said. “I’m also doing several songs that are new to me; it’s great to learn Christmas songs I’ve never heard of before. And the members of the quartet have said that the new arrangements are very cool; some jazzy, some bluesy. They’re all very excited about how the rehearsals are going.” In addition to some new holiday songs, the set list includes traditional holiday favorites and songs designed to get toes tapping, such as “Boogie Woogie Santa Claus” and “Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree.” Returning audience members will recognize the familiar faces of cohosts Deb Wims and Kenny Shepard, who have hosted the show since its inception. And, of course, there’s a star on a backstage dressing room door with Santa’s name on it, so bring your list and don’t forget to be nice.

Thanksgiving dinner BBQ Turkey

Original recipe makes 12 servings Ingredients: 2 cups butter, divided; 1 (15 pound) whole turkey, neck and giblets removed; 1/4 cup chicken soup base; 3 sweet onions, peeled and cut into wedges; 5 apples, cored and cut into wedges; 2 tablespoons minced garlic, or to taste; 1 (750 milliliter) bottle dry white wine Directions: Preheat a gas grill for low heat. Rub some of the butter all over the turkey, inside and out, then rub all over with chicken base. Cut remaining butter into cubes and toss with onions, apples, and garlic in a large bowl. Stuff the bird with this mixture and place in a disposable aluminum roasting pan. Fold the turkey skin around the neck area to cover the hole and then turn the turkey over and pour wine into the opening at the other end until the turkey is full or the bottle is empty. Set the turkey breast side up. Place the roasting pan on the grill and cover loosely with aluminum foil. If you have a pop up timer or heat safe meat thermometer, insert it into the turkey breast. Close the lid. Roast until the temperature in the breast reads 170 degrees F (75 degrees C) and the temperature

in the thickest part of the thigh reads 180 degrees C (80 degrees C), about 4 hours depending on the temperature of your grill. When the temperature is getting close, remove the aluminum foil covering the turkey and allow it to brown during the final minutes of cooking. If it starts to brown too much, just cover it back up. Allow the turkey to rest for at least 20 minutes before carving.

Broccoli with garlic and pine nuts

Ingredients: 1/2 cup pine nuts, 4 garlic cloves, 4 bunches broccoli, 6 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil, 2 to taste salt and pepper Directions: In a small dry skillet, toast the pine nuts, stirring constantly to brown evenly. Don’t burn! Chop the garlic fine. Set aside. Separate the broccoli into florets. Peel the skinnier stems and cut into cubes (or reserve the stems for cream of broccoli soup). In a large pot of rapidly boiling salted water, blanch the broccoli for about 8 minutes, until it is crisp-tender and still bright green. Drain thoroughly in a colander. In a sauté pan, heat the olive oil. Add the garlic and let it soften for a few minutes. Be careful not to let it burn. Then add the broccoli and pine nuts to the pan. Toss carefully to coat everything well with the garlicky oil. Salt and

pepper to taste. Turn into a warmed serving bowl and serve at once. Enjoy!

Preparing for the unexpected – What happens to student loan debt when the borrower dies? The answer: It depends, based on the type of loan. The U.S. Dept. of Education says federal student loans will be discharged upon death. Parent PLUS federal loans can be discharged if either the student or the parent borrower dies. With private student loans the answer is more complex, but generally lenders will not forgive loans after death. It’s common for private student loans to require a co-signer, often the student’s parent. In most cases, banks expect co-signers to assume responsibility for the loan after a death. There are exceptions: Sallie Mae’s “Smart Option Student Loan,” launched in 2009, forgives loans when students die. But generally, banks will attempt to collect payment from the deceased’s estate, and then turn to co-signers. Source: MSN Money

Question from Harold P. from Fishers: We got our first dose of winter weather this week, and I was reminded that insurance people completely forget how to drive when snow hits the ground. I witnessed a minor fender-bender and am wondering what I need to do if that happens to me. Response from Jamie Ianigro: Experiencing an automobile accident is always scary, no matter how minor. Your independent insurance agent should be able to provide you with a card to keep in your glove box to remind you of everything you need to do if an accident occurs. Here is what we recommend. 1. Take a deep breath and assess the situation. Get your vehicle and passengers out of further harm if the vehicle is still operable. 2. Make sure that no one in your vehicle requires immediate medical attention. Check the occupants of any other vehicle involved next. 3. Call the police. It doesn’t matter how minor the accident is. Having a police report filed will make your claim process much smoother. 4. Exchange insurance information and record the details. Make sure the other driver’s insurance is not out of date. Get their phone number, address, license plate number and the make and model of their car to make filing your claim easier. 5. Pull out your camera phone and snap some pictures of your car from every angle and of any damage it now has.

6. Obtain a copy of the police report and call your independent agent to file a claim. Driving without insurance coverage in Indiana is illegal and a great way to end up with a suspended license or serious financial problems if you are involved in an accident. The starting point for insurance in Indiana is the required state-minimum coverage. The minimums are $25,000 per injured person, $50,000 per accident and $10,000 for property damage. The current cost of medical expenses and auto repair make it pretty easy to see that those amounts are not going to get you very far when it’s time to settle a claim. They also provide you zero protection from motorists who drive around without insurance or with the inadequate state minimum insurance. I recommend limits of $250,000 per injured person, $500,000 per accident and $100,000 for property damage with an endorsement to protect you from uninsured and underinsured motorists. These raised limits will also allow you to add a personal umbrella policy to further protect you in extreme cases. You can also get a nice discount by packaging these policies together with your homeowners policy. Adding comprehensive and collision coverages and adjusting the cost of your deductibles is something you should talk with your independent agent about. Let me know if you have any further questions about this and drive safely. Jamie Ianigro is with Shepherd Insurance & Finanacial Services. Have an insurance question you need answered? Send it to asktheadvisor@shepherdins.com.

Building permits up 20 percent news@currentzionsville.com Central Indiana building permit reports indicate that single-family permits increased 20 percent in October compared to October housing 2012. There were 4,308 new home permits issued this year compared to the 3,585 issued in 2012. “Although reports indicate a slight decrease in permits from last month, we continue to see a significant increase over last year’s numbers,” said Steve Lains, CEO of the Builders Association of Greater Indianapolis. “Forecasters believe that we will continue to see steady increases in 2014. A slight decrease from last month was expected because of the time of year, but what’s ultimate-

ly important is the year-to-year overall increase which is moving in the right direction.” A recent Kiplinger economic report found that the pent-up demand will continue to elevate permit numbers in 2014. According to that report, housing is critical to the U.S. economy. “It’s not just from home sales, but in state and local government revenue, sales of furniture, appliances, etc., and the spin-off from income earned by construction crews, realtors and more,” the report said. In central Indiana the permits issued through October 2013 are estimated to create a total economic impact of $771 million in local income, $175 million in local taxes and 13,062 local jobs, year to date.

Make the top coat a top priority

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas!

Commentary by Nikki Blaine

We all have experienced those days when getting dressed wasn’t a top priority, but we knew we could not leave the fashion house less than fashionably chic. It’s the perfect opportunity to run into Mr. or Mrs. Wrong on that day. So what must we do to avoid this misadventure? The topcoat to the rescue! Late fall is the season for layers. It’s still too early to pull the heavy-duty winter coat out of its summer hibernation, but the cool mornings and unpredictable forecasts call for a strong shield against the chilly weather. Enter the topcoat, one of the most flexible pieces of outerwear that you can wear even into the snowiest months of winter. Styled much like a thicker, longer sports coat, the topcoat originated as a smart outer shell for those wearing a suit. However, if you consider that the topcoat is more “coat meets blazer,” you can truly realize its potential. You can wear it into the office, but if you’re looking for a casual look, sport it unbuttoned with a solid sweatshirt and some jeans. If temperatures are cooler, pull the coat over a denim jacket for another layer. Topcoats are available in bold patterns, with leather sleeves, or lighter shades like camel, but choosing charcoal grey or navy blue provides more flexibility in your wardrobe. The best topcoats should have a tailored fit and a slightly relaxed shoulder like a coat, and hit

about a palm’s width above the knee. In terms of sizing, you want a coat that’s the same size as the suit jacket you wear - not a size larger.

Trinity College Campanile and Library in Dublin. (Photo by Don Knebel)

Book of Kells: great Irish treasure Commentary by Donald Knebel

The library of Trinity College in Dublin houses thousands of rare and ancient books. Visitors from around the world queue for travel up to an hour to see just one of them. Two volumes of the famous Book of Kells, now separated into four volumes, are always displayed in the library’s Treasury room. The Book of Kells, one of Ireland’s greatest treasures, is a lavishly illustrated edition of the four Gospels, scripted in Latin. The illustration style is known as insular, but the Book of Kells is in a league of its own, not only for the extraordinary quality of its many illustrations but for their originality and unexpected playfulness. One illustration shows a green-striped cat trying to stop a mouse from eating a communion wafer. Another shows a man wrestling a peacock, an ancient symbol of immortality. The letter beginning one passage is formed from a man strangling a bird. So unusual is the colorful imagery of the Book of Kells that Umberto Eco, an Italian historical novelist, wrote recently that it was the “product of a cold-blooded hallucination,” a fact proudly noted in the guidebook sold in the library’s gift shop.

Exactly when the Book of Kells was created is not known. It was likely produced in the late eighth century by Irish monks seeking to promote their Christian faith. A full-page illustration contains the West’s oldest surviving manuscript image of the Virgin Mary. Mary, like others depicted in the Book of Kells, has an oversized head and distinctive large eyes, looking straight ahead. So similar is this style to the art of early Egyptian Christians (Copts) that scholars have long theorized a connection between Irish and Coptic missionaries. That theory gained greater credence with the recent discovery in Ireland of a fragment of the Psalms written on papyrus, a material native to Egypt but unknown in Ireland. The Book of Kells has made the library of Trinity College one of Ireland’s top tourist attractions, right up there with the Blarney Stone. Dublin provides the bonus of a beautiful city with a terrific zoo and a Guinness Storehouse offering free samples. Don Knebel is a local resident who works for Barnes & Thornburg LLP.

Upholstery: Choices, choices Commentary by Vicky Earley

Winter maintenance for homes Commentary by Randy Sorrell

Frosty windows and a dusting of snow on the lawn is motivation for completing critical winter preparation duties. It’s not the outdoors most joyful thing to do, but just as necessary as mulching landscaped beds in the spring. Here’s a glimpse at my personal list and a note of encouragement. 1. Clean gutters and downspouts are perhaps the most critical. As snow melts, clogged gutters can create ice dams and eventually cause moisture in your basement or crawl space. 2. Inspect the outside of your house for anything alarming … loose shingles, HVAC hoses dangling, etc. Call your handyman for assistance. 3. Change landscape lighting and coach lamp bulbs while the weather is mild and simultaneously clean the lens. 4. A respectful layer of mulch is especially critical on azaleas, rhododendrons, dogwood trees and spruce. Buy a few bags for ease of spreading. 5. Take an inventory of ice melt, snow shovel,

windshield scraper, gloves and boots before you need them. 6. Properly outfit the car with items in #5 too. 7. Drain gas from lawn equipment or fill with fuel stabilizer. Take any equipment that needs repair to your favorite shop. 8. Drain and store garden hoses … or not. Mine have survived 3 years outside, but it’s a risk. Take “at risk” urns inside after emptying. 9. Clean beds are happy beds … same with your lawn too. Remove leaves and other debris. Your neighbors will be filled with joy. 10. Need firewood or bird seed? Stock up now. Finally, and most importantly, take a few minutes to be grateful and help someone else be happy. Most of us are in need of a few healing words and you can make a difference. Be a builder of people, not a destroyer.

If you have ever tried to order custom upholstery on your own, you can relate. Upholstered furniture is a Rubik’s cube decorating of options. One mistake and the piece can be an absolute dog. One unexpected but calculated touch and it can be spectacular. Just the arm options available make it incredibly confusing for the inexperienced to make selections. First there is the rolled arm. You have seen this countless times as it is a traditional look that works well with loose cushions and provides easy seating. The track arm is square on top and will take a piece of furniture down a more modern path. The textile selection is tricky with the track arm in that pattern matching becomes almost impossible. The English arm is a first cousin to the rolled arm but it is typically lower and is paired with tight backs rather than cushioned backs. The tuxedo arm is the current darling of the upholstery world. It is typically the same height as the back of the sofa giving it a fabulous focal point position in a room. Once the preferred arm style has been determined, the legs enter the picture. Here we really get complicated because it’s about more than

just personal preference. It has to work with the arm and cushion selection or it will end up being an upholstery “mutt.” The turned leg is the most traditional of the options out there. Some will be simple, others quite ornate. The block leg, which includes buntype legs, offers a casual, laid back feeling. It can go very modern if it covers a large expanse of the piece. The pin leg is a throwback to the post-modern era. It is that long, cone-shaped leg that would be found on virtually every chair on the television series, “Madmen.” If all those choices weren’t enough, the type of finish will impact the style. A rich walnut will tap down a modern leg while a high gloss lacquered color will take the most traditional turned leg and make it kicky and modern. Regardless of your style, a plan is critical. It really isn’t about random choice based on what looks good on a sample ring. It is imperative to have a vision of the completed piece or that upholstery mutt just might be barking up your tree.

Investing in new countertops Commentary by David Decker

Because they take up so much visual space, countertops are one of the keystones of kitchen design. It’s amazing to see the Indoors difference that new countertops can make in a room, even if all of the other elements (such as flooring or cabinetry) stay the same. On the flip side, damaged or dated looking countertops can drag down the aesthetics and functionality of your kitchen. If you only have the time or money to make a single upgrade in the kitchen, chances are that investing in new countertops is a smart way to go. When selecting new countertops, the first thing you’ll need to consider is the type of material. Each material has certain positive and negative aspects that you should be aware of before making a purchasing decision. Stone (such as granite and quartz) has become one of the most popular choices for homeowners looking to upgrade their kitchen countertops. Stone is easy to clean, durable against heat and resistant to bacterial buildup. It is also scratch-resistant, while other options are not. While stone is a popular choice, it’s far from the only choice. Also available on the market are solid surfaces and laminates. Solid surfaces are engineered from acrylic or polyester plastics, while laminates are made from a plastic that is adhered to particleboard. These physical properties are important to know, because they play a

big role in affecting the functionality of the material. In terms of functionality, stone options are inherently more durable than solid surfaces. Because laminates and solid surfaces can scratch, dirt and bacteria can hide in these crevasses. The decision comes down to your personal preference. Great looking countertops can be made from any of these materials. However, if you are willing to make the investment, choosing a stone material may pay off in the long run. Stone materials are generally more expensive than other options, but they are typically more long lasting and valued by potential homebuyers. If you know that a move might be coming in the near future, stone might be the way to go. With all these options and considerations to weigh, selecting new countertops can be a difficult task. If you’re looking for a little guidance, The Affordable Companies Website is a great resource full of blog posts, links and photos that can help you make the best selection for your home. No two homes require the exact same solution, so get creative and search for a countertop that will improve the look and functionality of your kitchen.
