Town and ZCS announce partnership By Derek Fisher • email@example.com Zionsville Community Schools and the Town of Zionsville are moving forward on a unique partnership to create economic development opportunities and reduce the community’s residential tax burden, while creating a new revenue source for reducing the school district’s debt. Pending approval by the Zionsville Redevelopment Commission, ZCS will use funds remaining from a 2005 bond issue, as well as interest and project savings, to purchase approximately 126 acres on 106th St. Parkway east of Zionsville Road from Dow Chemical Company for $5.7 million. “This partnership is a creative way to benefit taxpayers while expanding assessed valuation by creating a market-ready economic developNorton ment opportunity,” said Dax Norton, executive director of the Boone County Economic Development Commission. The school district will keep approximately 10 acres to build a warehouse and
maintenance facility on the property. The Town of Zionsville will take title to the remaining property, install infrastructure and subdivide it for commercial development. Dow Chemical was unwilling to subdivide the tract into smaller parcels, which made the property’s purchase, outside a governmental partnership, too costly. “The Town will gain control of prime real estate for economic development,” said Tim Haak, Zionsville Town Council president. “New development on this land will increase the Town’s tax base, lowering tax rates and minimizing tax cap losses for all local Haak government entities. New economic investment creates more local jobs and benefits existing local businesses and all taxpayers.” Haak and RDC president Mike Latz indicated a number of businesses had expressed interest in the Dow property in recent years. None chose to do so, however, because the property was too costly as a single parcel. The funds earmarked for the venture can only be used for the purpose for which
they were originally intended and have been held in savings since the bond issue. The project had been deferred until economic conditions improved and a suitable site was found. “It is a unique opportunity,” said Scott Robison, ZCS superintendent. “The revenue from the Town’s installment payments through 2028 creates a new revenue stream for Zionsville Community Schools. Robison Either these funds lay dormant until a bond refinancing is possible in 2015, or they simultaneously locate the needed warehouse/maintenance facility and aid the Town’s efforts in commercial development. The resulting assessed valuation expansion will help all taxpayers for decades to come.” Because net costs of this land acquisition and development will be paid with future property tax revenues from the new businesses locating on the property through Tax Increment Financing, developing the property will not be paid for by current taxpayers.

Ferris wins $50K on reality show By Katie Franz • email@example.com In April of this year, Zionsville resident Todd Ferris packed his bags for a unique opportunity – a trip to Norway to compete in the Norwegian reality show Alt for Norge in hopes of winning $50,000 and meeting his Nordic ancestors. He was told he would be gone for two to nine weeks, depending on how he fared, and that no contact with his wife and kids would be allowed. Ferris essentially entered on a whim, but most would understand why he now calls it “the experience of a lifetime.” In addition to exploring the snow-covered slopes and sunlit beaches of his ancestral homeland, Ferris emerged as the grandprize winner of the competition, which followed 12 Americans as they confronted various physical and mental challenges all over the nation. Ferris says the hardest tribulation he faced consisted of a street performance in Oslo. The teams were given 30 minutes to raise as much money as possible. “They wanted nothing to do with these loud Americans, along with the cameras filming us,” he said. After Ferris braved weeks of similar tasks, his family was notified of his success. His mother flew in for the final episode in place of his wife, who was unable to fly at the time as a result of pregnancy. They traveled by helicopter to Ferris’ Norwegian relatives’ hometown, where they met
Ferris those relatives for the first time. Except forhis mother and family, a contract required him to keep the results of the show from everyone. “There were some other immediate family and friends that knew, but most everyone else was left in the dark,” Ferris said. “I just had the trip of my life and I couldn’t share any of the details with anyone.” Now that the finale has aired and the news has been shared, Ferris is looking to the future, planning to save his winnings for his young daughters’ college funds and weddings. “However, not before we purchase a hot tub and a trip back to Norway for my wife and I, so that she can finally experience first-hand some of the stories that I keep telling her,” he says. Ferris says he has not been invited back for another season but certainly plans to return one day.

Worrying about winter Commentary by Ward Degler
Last Sunday it got up to 70 as the sun lazed across the Indian summer sky. Monday morning it was snowing and a bitter wind blew in from the north. It gave me the chills and I wondered what kind of winter we were going to have. Last winter was one of the warmest, driest on record. Not to be outdone, this past summer was one of the hottest and driest ever. The Farmers’ Almanac predicts it will be colder and snowier in the east and warmer and drier in the west this year, which puts Indiana on the cusp. It could go either way. I don’t know if the early snow means anything or not. It just makes me worry. Early snows happen a lot in the Midwest. More than once I’ve taken the kids trick-ortreating in blowing snow. When I lived in Minnesota it was not unusual for a cruel wind to blow snow in from the arctic regions as early as August. Two days later it would be hot and sunny again. The fall of 1977, however, was a different story altogether. Not just in Minnesota, but the entire Midwest. It started snowing the day before Thanksgiving, and by the time we carved the turkey there was 18 inches of snow on the ground. It snowed again the next day and the next. We never saw the ground again until May, and snow banks along the road were 12 feet high. The county plows were hard put to deal with the endless snow. To make matters worse, the temperature stayed below zero for 40 days. That’s when I decided to pack up and leave the frozen north for the balmier climes of Indiana. I’m going to pull out my old winter boots and parka, however, just in case today’s snowfall is trying to tell me something. 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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Walmart factor(s) Commentary by Bret Brewer I attended Zionsville’s meeting with Walmart representatives on Nov. 12. There, a resident warned that Zionsville’s downtown will become vacant. Walmart representatives said that would not occur and, in fact, they are partnering with Akard True Value to help ensure it. Walmart representatives said, “$20 million a year is spent at Walmarts outside of our area, and that will come back to Boone County.” They said Marsh is its competitor and not downtown Zionsville. I believe Marsh will be the first business they break. Walmart released a retail-sector-impact study on Nov. 13. It states, “The largest potential (employment) loss is among large- and medium-sized big box stores … It would seem that the largest effect of Walmart is on competing big-box format stores and continues for some time after a Walmart entrance.” Marsh, 106th Street and Michigan Road, will probably close in less than three years. I’ve seen vacant K-marts and Sears properties with broken windows and weeds in front of very nice neighborhoods. These are very similar setups to the Marsh in front of The Westons. Walmart will bring in lower prices – good in the short term. When lower prices force Marsh to close or sell, only a business that
does not compete with Walmart can move in (or the property can remain vacant). This will lower the value of the Marsh property, and The Westons homes will decrease in value when crime rates increase (Walmart will bring higher crime rates to its lot and the surrounding lots and neighborhoods). It’s a domino effect, and it will keep moving north to impact Zionsville and southwest Carmel. We have little time to convince the Zionsville Town Council to reject the variance on Nov. 27 (Walmart wants permission for a store 25,000 square feet larger than is allowed). We have little time to convince the town council to vote against Walmart on Dec. 18. People act like Walmart already has won – it has not. I am not ready for the negative impacts that will result from a new Walmart. Do your research, but do it quickly and let the town council and others know what you see.

Cancer, torn aorta, ER doctor, a horse. Goddard School owners share why they believe in miracles By Julie Osborne - firstname.lastname@example.org Blood slowly leaked from his heart, but nothing was going to stop him from finishing the race in honor of his 6-year-old granddaughter battling leukemia. An ambulance was ready as he reached the hill but he responded, “No, I’m not quitting,” and rode off with head down, vision blurred and neck stiffening. “If Lauryn can endure chemo, I can do this even if I have to crawl to the finish,” says Tom Rushworth. The final leg he walked arm-in-arm for 6.2 miles with his daughter/coach, surrounded by teammates cheering 59-year-old “Grampie” to the finish. In the last stretch, he scooped up his granddaughter and lumbered to the finish line, the last person to cross it. While teammates celebrated, he went to bed, and the next day, flew home hoping his body would recover soon. Days later, he awoke in the intensive care, recovering from emergency open-heart surgery. It was the beginning of many miracles to come for Zionsville resident,Tom Rushworth, his daughter, Dea Walls, and granddaughter, Lauryn Walls.
A miracle survival through a familiar face in ER
Athletes run with torn ligaments, but a torn aorta is almost always fatal as many don’t make it to the emergency room. But, the right doctor was in the right place at exactly the right time. “Dr. Michael Kaufmann had the proper training, so he started the CT scan higher than normal. Another doctor may have missed it and Kaufmann focused on my abdomin where I was having pain.” says Rushworth. Kaufmann also knew this patient when he appeared in the St.Vincent Carmel Hospital emergency room that night. They met in a pool months earlier for training as Kaufmann is also a triathlete. “I recognized him right away when he arrived in the ER,” says Kaufmann, “You can’t even calculate the odds of him surviving. Not only did he survive the aorta tear but he finished the race and then flew his family home in his plane. It’s inconceivable that he would survive. I believe in miracles.”
saying “my heart hurts,” and the doctor soon spelled out “C-A-N-C-E-R,” so as not to alarm Lauryn (4) and sister Jordyn (9). Her blood levels were critically low, so low that a scratched knee or bloody nose would have been fatal. Life changed with that one word for the entire family, “I left that day from work and didn’t come back for another year and a half,” says Walls, owner of Goddard School in Zionsville. For months and years to come, she remained optimistic saying,“We’re fighting this,” and later added, “Cancer has taught me a lot. I could be angry with God but I never have been. Maybe God picked Lauryn because He thought she could make an impact. So, I saw it as an opportunity to teach my girls to embrace it and turn it into something good.” During the past five years, Lauryn’s family, with the help of Goddard School families, has raised more than $100,000 for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.
Wish granted, then lost
Their faith, along with an extended support system of family, friends, doctors, and co-workers, kept them strong throughout the 2 1/2 years of chemotherapy. In August 2009, a “Wish” was granted through the Indiana wish Foundation. Lauryn’s wish was straightforward, “I want a horse,” and soon “Twister” became a part of their family. By fall of 2010, life appeared to be return-

ing to “normal,” but sadness was just around the corner. In November, Twister got sick and suddenly died Thanksgiving weekend. A wish was dashed and the family devastated as Walls relived the event, “I cried for weeks.This horse was our wish, our dream.”
Another “Lil” miracle arrives
Miracles continue with remission
His life was not the only miracle. By race day in June 2010, his granddaughter, Lauryn, was in remission. It all began in January 2008 when she arrived in the ER with random symptoms

things can happen.” Good things continue to happen as last Wednesday Lauryn returned from her threemonth checkup “all clear,” while Grampie sat in his office at the Goddard School on Michigan Road in Carmel grateful to be alive, “I came away with a whole new perspective. I don’t take anything for granted anymore. God gave me help to get through this and a second chance. I’m not sure why, but I’m doing what I can to make the best of it.”
The following summer, while on vacation in Hilton Head, S.C., Jordyn took a horseback riding lesson that would have a lasting impact. After sharing their story trainer Samantha from Lawton Stables, was inspired into action. After the lesson, she said to Jordyn, ”Lil Bit is really tired of doing lessons. I think she needs two little girls to take care of her. Do you think you would like to have her?” They were in disbelief at this stranger’s generous offer. Walls saw it as a divine encounter. “Lil Bit was the perfect horse for us. She was therapy-trained so she is gentle with the girls. It’s hard to explain but that horse really takes care of Lauryn. She brought hope back into our Lauryn (8) and Jordyn (13) with Lil Bit (Andy Hoffman, Story Album lives. It reminded us that good Photography)

It is our position that a paradigm shift in the gender gap is forcing a change in attitude among men and women. Women surpass men in the U.S. workforce, college graduation rates and now, in the number of licensed drivers. According to author, motivational speaker and radio show host Coach Michael Taylor, many men are becoming tired and frustrated with the antiquated male roles in society and it is probably for the better. Taylor believes that despite the uncertainty and confusion some men are experiencing, these changing roles for men are actually good and can actually help eradicate some of the social issues that plague our country and lead to divorce, financial woes and depression. He is asking men to join him in his new revolution which he calls, A Conversation with Men. How about instead of men having a conversation with one another, they have the conversation with their spouse. Does every movement need a label? Perhaps the primary breadwinner has always felt pressure when wearing the pants in the family. However, will a level playing field really create balance, or will women soon be reshaped and grow callused by the pressures of being the breadwinner? Only time will tell.

The last word
Commentary by Terry Anker
This business of putting thoughts to paper carries with it some joys, some laments and a dash of in-between. Those of us who manage to write regularly can extol the virtue of ranting at a keyboard instead of a coworker. We can claim the calm that comes from expression – even if it is never heard (or read) by anyone other than ourselves. For me over these past many years, writing has become a labor of love. While it took some time to figure it out, I finally understand the need of some to keep a journal or at least take some notes here and there. But like most of life’s pleasures, it is balanced with peril. When one puts pen to paper, it is hard to retract or rephrase. It is out there – uninformed or even ignorant – people get to judge based only on a few words one’s measure. I enjoy biographies of historic figures. The materials often come from meticulous research through the personal papers and even diaries of these people. Would they have
taken greater care had they known that years later others would be combing their random thoughts seeking inconsistency or worse? And when putting something into the public space, special attention must be paid to word choice. Is a phrase or use of lexicon offensive (unintentionally) or sending an inadvertent message? Does it mean something different to a reader not born in the US? Does it mean something different to a reader born after 1985? Has the thought that one believed to be so unique, already been said before? When we’re talking face-to-face, so much more data is shared. We can respond to the body language of the listener and respond on the fly to changes in mood. At least with the written word, one gets the last word.

It’s a great time of year, the colder weather notwithstanding, because it’s officially the start of the holiday season. Some big-box stores would have you believe the holiday shopping season began back around Aug. 17, but we still were slathering on the sunscreen back then. No, it’s on now, and this Saturday brings a special opportunity for you and those that own enterprises in our midst. It’s Small Business Saturday, something of its own national holiday in our circle, a day to celebrate and support small businesses and all they do for our communities. Please join us as we support the local shopkeepers by buying local; it is exactly that which will fuel our own holiday season.

Doo versus Thai-hot
Commentary by Danielle Wilson
I love my husband. Not only is he the funniest person I know, but he also proves to be an endless source of column ideas. Typically it’s of the “Doo is driving me crazy!” variety, but occasionally the fodder is pure situation comedy. Take last night. We took the kids out to dinner to celebrate our eldest’s birthday. Doo’s mom also joined us and, as we piled into the mini-van, Doo mentioned that his stomach was a little on edge. He’d eaten Thai food for lunch with some buddies and thought maybe that was the source of his discomfort. Once seated, we ordered an appetizer and drinks, and Doo politely excused himself to go the restroom. He was gone for a good 15 minutes, long enough that he missed out on most of the calamari and bread. “Are you OK, babe?” I asked. “Do you want to just split something?” “That did not go well,” Doo replied with a sigh. “I worked through some of it, but the rest is coming. Soon.” Doo managed to finish his soup and about half of his salad, but had to excuse himself again before dessert. He told me to order him a coffee and the tiramisu, and then walked rather quickly to the men’s room. Ten minutes later he was back, still looking kind of off. “Why did I eat Thai-hot today?” he moaned. “We’re going to have to leave fairly soon. I’m not finished and it’s not going to be
pretty when I do.” So we paid our bill, loaded Grams and the kids back into the car, and began the relatively short trip home. I was driving. Before we even reached the stop sign in the parking lot, Doo turned to me and said, “I am not kidding. Get me home NOW or I can’t be held responsible for what happens in this seat.” His complexion was now the color of Sweet Mint, and a fine sheen of sweat had broken out on his forehead. Naturally, we all began to mock him. Through the guffaws, I could hear poor Doo chanting, “I’m not going to make it, I’m not going to make it.” As I giggled at the thought of a possible Bridemaids re-enactment, Doo frantically pulled out his phone and dialed his brother who lives about half way in between. “Have the door open and clear the way,” he yelled, clutching the armrest for dear life. “Hee, hee, hoo” I coached, and then literally let loose from laughing so hard. I’m not proud that I broke several speeding laws to get Doo to that bathroom, but I’d do it again in a heartbeat. Because I really do love my husband. Peace out.

Missing link Commentary by Dick Wolfsie It was an exciting week for me. I’ve received over 500 congratulatory e-mails. What had I done to deserve this recognition? I didn’t have the foggiest idea. It all began with an appointment to meet a local businessman about a speech I was to give to his company. I logged onto my computer and went to a well-known site to see if there was any information about this CEO. I had joined LinkedIn back in 2007, but I tired of it very quickly because it appeared to have similar people who were on Facebook, only many of the LinkedIn members were actually looking for work, rather than wasting time on the Internet while at work. For several years, I ignored all requests for others to “link” with me, so my password had become inactive. This seemed fair because “inactive” was a pretty good description of my degree of motivation the past decade. When I updated my settings, every request for a connection that I had successfully ignored for so long was automatically sent out. Suddenly, I had more links than the night shift at the Johnsonville brat factory. Then I received emails lauding me for finally coming out of my cave: “Congratulations,” 12 | November 20, 2012
they all said, “you are now linked in with Betty, Hermione, Ezra and Terrance” (and several hundred others). How often had I thought about touching base with these individuals? “Never” was the first word that came to mind. The subject line of these emails enticed me to “learn more about” Phyllis, Oscar, Tony and Deidra, among others. Of course, the bar was low because I knew nothing about these people to begin with. The few I really did know personally wrote back to thank me for finally reaching out. They also wanted to know what took me so darn long. I plan to respond by 2017. By the way, associates you connect with also have the opportunity to “endorse” you, which I think means they have used your service and would recommend you to others. Out of 500 names I was suddenly linked to, one person actually endorsed me. I know that is nothing to brag about, but you might as well congratulate me. Everyone else has.
One holiday at a time
Commentary by Mike Redmond
So I’m scrolling through the inbox, past the come-ons for skin tag removal and fortunes in Nigeria, when I come across this doozy: “Michael, what do you want for Black Friday?” What do I want for Black Friday? How about that it doesn’t exist? Once I was coerced into going out do my Christmas shopping on Black Friday. If I’m going to get up at 3 a.m. it will be for the following reasons only: A. The house is on fire. B. The dog has to pee. C. I do, too. As if getting up in the middle of the night wasn’t bad enough, then I had to go Christmas shopping. Sorry, in Mike World “have to” doesn’t pair up with “go Christmas shopping” until noon Dec. 24. The day-before-Christmas panic has, for me anyway, a certain cheerful vibe. Everyone’s bustling about in (mostly) happy anticipation of the next day, and the air seems full of Christmas music instead of exhaust fumes and sewer gas. I remember one Christmas Eve about 30 years ago when I was running around downtown Indianapolis, arms full of packages. A beautiful snow began to fall and I thought to myself, “This is exactly like being in an old Christmas movie.”
Black Friday, on the other hand, is exactly like being in an old war movie. People are battling for position, running flanking maneuvers, sending out scouts, trying to capture the high ground and taking no prisoners. I also object to Black Friday as part of my blanket objection against rushing toward Christmas, which gets worse every year. The Christmas catalogs began arriving well before Halloween, and the decorations were going up in some stores in September. Meanwhile, Thanksgiving – one of the truly great days of the year – gets short shrift, in my view. I realize it’s not as sexy as Christmas and it’s not that big of an economic driver for anyone except turkey farmers, but it’s a rich and beautiful American day and deserves to be treated as such, not as the day we fuel up for a day of full-contact shopping. So that’s what I want for Black Friday: A turkey sandwich at my house. No crowds and a DVD of “King Kong vs. Godzilla.” What else could anyone want? A little sanity, I suppose. But the way things have gotten, I think that would be too much to ask. Mike Redmond is an author, journalist, humorist and speaker. Write him at mike@ mikeredmondonline.com or P.O.

Guidelines for tackling the big bird
Here’s now to serve a better bird By Mark Johnson • email@example.com There’s more than one way to skin your Thanksgiving bird. Some like it baked, others like it deep-fried and still others go for a barbecued turkey. For many, cooking and presenting the turkey is a passion. Some would say it is the equivalent of Christmas morning. Yet, for those who have ever been presented with the monumental task of preparing a feast of such magnitude, Thanksgiving Day also can bring Cordelia with it challenges and situations that require a considerable amount of thought and planning. Newcomers may even feel slightly intimidated at the thought of wrestling with a cumbersome turkey. Jack Cordelia, head chef at Famous Dave’s Barbecue in Noblesville, offers some tips on turkey prep for both novices and veterans. “Preparing to cook it, you may want to brine it first, that is, soak it in a salt solution the night before you cook it. That will help lock in the flavor,” he said. As for cooking the turkey, Cordelia recomwww.currentzionsville.com

Don’t be afraid to give them a ring; it could save the day! • Reynolds Turkey Tips: (800) 745-4000; 24 hours • Butterball Turkey Talk Line: (800) BUTTERBALL (800-288-8373); 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. CST on Thanksgiving Day • Honeysuckle White: (800) 810-6325. Recorded answers to FATQ (turkey questions) • Foster Farms: (800) 255-7227; 24 hours mends that you have a cooking thermometer to gauge the readiness of the turkey. “You want to make sure that you cook it through to the innermost part at 180 degrees. The length of time will depend on the size of the bird,” he said. “When it’s done you’ll want to let it sit for 20 to 30 minutes before carving. If you carve too soon, the juices will run everywhere and that will dry out the turkey.” For more information on various turkey recipes and preparations, Cordelia recommends www.foodchannel.com.
Whether you’re tackling a Thanksgiving turkey for the first or hundredth time, our top tips will ensure your big bird is the best it can be. • For crisper skin, unwrap the turkey the day before roasting and leave it uncovered in the refrigerator overnight. • Cooking times will differ depending on whether your bird was purchased fresh or frozen. Plan on 20 minutes per pound in a 350 degree F oven for a defrosted turkey and 10 to 15 minutes per pound for fresh. • For even roasting, truss your turkey. • Before roasting, coat the outside of the turkey with vegetable or olive oil, season with salt and pepper and tightly cover the breast with aluminum foil to prevent over-browning • Don’t be a peeping Tom (no pun intended)! Once you get the turkey in the oven, resist the temptation to open the oven door and admire your handiwork. When the oven temperature fluctuates, you’re only increasing the likelihood of a dry bird. About 45 minutes before you think the turkey is done, remove the foil from the breast to allow it to brown. • Remove the turkey from the oven when the deepest spot between the leg and the breast reads 180 degrees F on an instant-read thermometer. Check the internal temperature of the stuffing as well; it should be at least 165 degrees. • Tent the bird with foil and let rest for about 15 minutes before carving. - The Food Network

Lawrence of Arabia: 50th Anniversary Edition • PG, 227 minutes Commentary by Chris Lloyd “Nothing is written,” T.E. Lawrence famously says. But almost from the moment “Lawrence of Arabia” hit theaters in 1962, it seemed destined to become one of the most iconic films ever made. It is by most reckonings the pinnacle of the epic movie-making impulse that surged in the 1950s and ‘60s – a grand, lush drama filled with exotic foreign trappings and a history-making tale to tell. It won a slew of awards, including the Best Picture Oscar, and deserved them all. A restoration of director David Lean’s masterpiece was released in theaters in 1989 – one of the last films distributed in a 70mm print. Now, a new digital remastering from the original film negative has been completed for the movie’s 50th

The story is familiar to any serious film lover: an oddball British lieutenant is plucked from obscurity during World War I to act as liaison to the disparate Arabic desert tribes, and he ends up forging them into a united army that helps take down the Turkish Empire. As he becomes a famous and charismatic figure, Lawrence finds his sanity crumbling as his lust for power grows.

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. Joe Drozda is an author about sports and food.

Correcting post-nursing breast issues Commentary by Barry Eppley Q: I need to remove excess skin from below my belly button and lift my breasts. I breast fed all four of my children and had a set of twins who stretched my stomach out tremendously. I have tried situps, but they won’t take care of this loose skin. A: Multiple pregnancies, particularly twins, push the skin past its elastic deformation limit. In essence, it snaps the rubber band nature of the abdominal skin forever, relegating many women to loose and often floppy skin that is seen the most between the belly button and the pubic area. The surest sign of permanently lost skin elasticity are stretch marks, which represent incomplete tears in the skin. This is like making
little snips partially through a rubber band; it weakens or eliminates its elasticity. You are correct in stating that exercise is not going to tighten skin nor will weight loss. The problem is a surgical and will require skin excision and underlying muscle tightening, a perfect description for a tummy tuck. Whether your tummy tuck would be a partial (mini-) or a full tummy tuck I cannot say without seeing pictures of you. But my guess would be that after four children, a full tummy tuck with maximal skin removal is likely in order.

Community Health Network launches Indiana’s first exclusive local affiliation with MD Anderson Cancer Network email@example.com Community Health Network announced on Nov. 15 that Community Hospital North and Community Hospital East will become affiliates of MD Anderson Cancer Network, a program of The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center. This collaboration will provide certified physicians at these two Community hospitals with access to evidence-based guidelines, treatment plans and concordance studies developed by MD Anderson experts. These are disease-specific guidelines for cancer treatment, cancer prevention, early detection and follow-up care, bringing new hope to local cancer patients by using treatment guidelines developed by a national leader in cancer care. For nine of the past 11 years, including 2012, MD Anderson has ranked No. 1 in cancer care in the “Best Hospitals” survey published by U.S. News & World Report. “This is a game changer for our network,” said Community Health Network President and CEO Bryan Mills. “By teaming up with MD Anderson Cancer Network, we’re combinStrawberries rock – It turns out that a good way to whiten up your teeth is to eat various fruits and vegetables with a little bit of crunchiness to them.

Professionals in the medical field know the MD Anderson name very well, as it’s the gold standard for cancer care.

Plans are to seek MD Anderson Cancer Network certification of cancer centers at Community Hospital Anderson, Community Howard Regional Health, and at Community Hospital South. “Community Health Network has a long tradition of providing exceptional health care in Central Indiana. We’re excited about this new relationship, which will further enhance patient care by adding MD Anderson expertise,” said Bill Murphy, M.D., MD Anderson Physicians Network chairman. “Together, we’ll ensure that patients across Indiana have access to the highest quality cancer care available.”

Preparing for and handling a home fire Commentary by Jamie Ianigro
Question from Kenny C. from West Clay: The freak explosion on the south side has me trying to figure out a plan for my family if we are involved in a home fire. I don’t know where to start. Got any advice? Response from Jamie Ianigro: You’re a step ahead of a lot of people. Advanced planning is one of the most important factors in protecting your family from fire. Home fires injure over 13,000 people a year and kill nearly 3,000. The people most at risk are those over age 65 and children preschool age and younger. The first thing you need to worry about when it comes to protecting your family is smoke alarms. Every home should have at least one smoke alarm. Most codes now require that a smoke alarm be placed on every floor of the home. Test the batteries on your smoke alarms monthly and replace the alarm every ten years. Make sure you always install new alarms according to the manufacturer’s directions.
With all of your smoke alarms working, you need to create an escape plan. Make sure everyone in your family understands what to do when the smoke alarm goes off. Practice your escape plan in the dark so that you all know what to expect and how to navigate the home without electricity. Here are some things to keep in mind when coming up with your plan. • Know two ways out of each room. Have an escape ladder for any bedrooms above the ground floor. Make sure children are familiar with opening the windows. • Feel the door for heat before opening it. If the door is not hot, open it slowly and take your normal escape route. If the door is hot, take your backup route. • Crawl if there is smoke. Most fire victims succumb to smoke and toxic gases. Stay below the smoke by crawling. • Have an arranged meeting place outside the house. Make sure everyone knows it. • DON’T GO BACK INSIDE. Let the fire department handle it from here.
Stock tip – Texas Roadhouse runs close to 400 restaurants, including several around Indianapolis. The company should be able to grow at least 10% a year for at least five more years, and is conservatively run. It has little debt and plenty of extra cash flow to pay a respectable 2.1% dividend yield. – Ryan C. Fuhrman, CFA, via finance.yahoo.com

Hanging on my wall are beautifully embroidered tapestries of the Taj Mahal. They are mounted under glass and lovingly framed in tribute to my deceased grandfather, who flew the Burma Hump as an Army medic in WWII. During his service, nothing captivated him more than his visit to the Taj, and these tapestries were carried home as a gift to my grandmother. The grand marble mausoleum was completed in 1653, under the orders of Shah Jahan for his beloved wife, Mumtaz Mahal. Grief-stricken at her loss, he employed thousands of artisans and craftsmen to pay tribute and construct her final resting place. As the most magnificent example of Moghul architecture, which combines elements from Persian, Ottoman, Turkish and Indian architectural styles, it is a Unesco world heritage site. Getting to Agra in India to see the Taj is not an easy feat. The closest airport is for military use only, forcing international visitors to fly into Delhi. From there, it is a three- to five-hour car ride or a more adventurous Indian train trip. Once there, it is highly suggested you spend at least one night.

A visit to the Taj Commentary by Annie Rogers
Lastly, insurance. Your independent insurance agent is going to be there to help you rebuild your life after a terrible loss, like a fire. It is important to make sure your insurance limits are adequate and up-to-date. Insurance policies are concerned with the cost of rebuilding your home (not to be confused with the market value). Be sure to review your policy with your agent annually. Your contents (furniture, clothes, etc) value is usually set at half of the rebuilding cost. Sometimes this limit can be inadequate and needs to be increased. Your independent insurance agent can provide a simple home inventory form to help figure out if you need to increase your contents limit. For more information on fire prevention, visit usfa.dhs.gov or call your independent insurance agent.

Amarvillas Agra and ITC Mughal have sprung up, offering fabulous views of the Taj and making a longer stay enviable. Boasting opulent splendor, meticulously manicured gardens and fountains with few rivals, they have become destinations in and of themselves. I visited India shortly before my grandfather passed. Although I never made it to the Taj, I brought him home a white marble replica I picked up in Chennai. He kept it on a shelf, and every time I visited, he recounted his fascination at the monument. I want to go to India again. I long to gaze upon the Taj with my papaw’s eyes and bring him back to me in spirit, if even briefly, to stand beside me and marvel at the wonder of all he saw and then, as the sun sets, to contentedly release him again back home with the immortal words carved on the Great Gate that Shah Jahan wept for Mumtaz Mahal: “O Soul, thou art at rest. Return to the Lord at peace with Him, and He at peace with you.”

A backyard playground for the entire family Commentary by Randy Sorrell What’s THE ultimate backyard living amenity? In my view, that distinction belongs to the custom fireplace and grill station. Experience proves that no other luxury brings people together and inspires more memories than this. This Villages of West Clay backyard handles both the large footprint of the home and the valued green space that weaves through the neighborhood and directly behind the home. Completely custom, no pre-fabricated components are seen here; it boasts a Wisconsin cobble and mortar exterior that echoes a gorgeous interior fireplace. Limestone counters are very appropriate for the tone of the space and were smartly sourced in Indiana, of course. Ample counter space grows from each side of the fireplace and will easily accommodate several visitors, particularly coupled with the already gracious size patio. The grill station counter proudly houses the “green egg” from Chef JJ in Broadripple, and it is easily the center of attention if you are a grilling dude. What a treat! Shade Almost every outdoor project has some sort
of shade management component and this was no exception. In fact, a southwestern exposure prompted this space to completely bake and become off limits for much of the summer. Strategically located, the new structure will protect the happy Carmel family in that challenging 5-8 p.m. timeframe when the sun manages to sneak below the pergola or porch roofline. Midday protection is accomplished with the help of abbreviated pergolas over each counter as well as an edgy overhead shade sail. Exterior grade blinds recessed between the pergola beams offer additional protection, help with privacy and magically behave as a screen on movie night. Dedicated homeowners with these marvelous structures appreciate that outdoor living can extend almost uninterrupted through winter with the right planning. We do have our limits though. What’s yours?

The beauty of an island Commentary by David Decker
Today, people use their kitchen for more than just preparing meals. The kitchen is the social center of the home where kids, adults, family members and party guests tend to congregate, which is why for many homeowners, no kitchen is quite complete without an island in the center of the space. Islands have become popular focal points of the modern kitchen, and it’s easy to see why. They make cooking and entertaining so much easier. And since the biggest cooking event of the year is on its way later this month, here are a few kitchen island design ideas just in time for Thanksgiving. Because they are centrally located, islands often become the focal point of the kitchen from a functionality standpoint. Islands make it easy to accommodate the activities and groups of people who are busy bustling around in the kitchen. And with the holidays approaching, it’s helpful to have space for the extra cooks who may be in the kitchen. Islands can function as extra countertop space, or they can be equipped with an extra sink to make an excellent cooking prep station. Some homeowners even choose to wire their stove onto a kitchen island, which frees up countertop space around other areas of the kitchen. Islands also function as easy-toaccess storage space or as a place to display food and beverages during a party. Certain kitchen island models become popular because they make it possible to do several activities at once. For example, there are island designs that feature multiple countertop levels. The lower level usually functions as a cooking workspace, while the higher level works as an elevated dining area. The multiple levels make it possible to cook a meal while entertaining guests at the same time. The key to the island’s popularity is versatility. With so many shapes and sizes to choose from, you can find a kitchen island that is specifically designed for the activities you do most. Kitchen islands can also become the focal point of the room from a design standpoint. A stylish island design can really beautify your kitchen space. You can make your island stand out by painting

it a bright or bold color. It’s a great way to make the island pop and to use fun colors that might be too intense to paint on the walls or cabinets. The countertop surface you choose for the island can also make a big design splash. I’ve seen islands with stone, wood and even stainless steel countertops. The countertop used on your island doesn’t necessarily have to match the surfaces found in the rest of your kitchen. In fact, the contrast will make your island stand out from the other kitchen countertops. Whether you’d like to make your island the center of your kitchen for functional or design reasons (or maybe a combination of the two), these ideas will help you make the most of your kitchen island space. Enjoy these last few weeks before the start of the holiday season because things are probably going to start to get very busy in your kitchen.
