It is our position that vaccines are a necessary good for children and the public at large. Vaccinations against major debilitating diseases, such as, polio, diphtheria, whooping cough, small pox, etc. have nearly eradicated these diseases in the U.S. And yet, many continue to express concerns about the value and safety of vaccinations. As a local school recently reminded, “Indiana law requires that students have all required immunizations within the first 20 days of school or the student must be prohibited from attending school until they receive the required immunizations.” Students entering grades 6-12 are required to have vaccinations for tetanus, diphtheria, acellular pertussis, meningococcal conjugate vaccine, and a second varicella vaccination. Students entering preschool or kindergarten must now have two appropriately documented chicken pox vaccines, physician’s documentation of disease history, or laboratory evidence of immunity.    Accepted documentation includes a physician’s written documentation, a written documentation from another school corporation, an immunization record from (CHIRP) or printed record from another state registry. Documentation must include month, day, and year each dose of vaccine was delivered.

Messy mess

It is our opinion that President Obama’s decision to summarily ban off-shore drilling near U.S. waters after the recent BP oil spill seems more of an emotional and political choice that one attentive to science and the pressing economic reality of our nation. This country needs a steadfast and strong leader focused on guiding us out of one of the worst recessions in recent history. Devastating the energy industry in several states seems inconsistent with that need. Clearly, the oil spill has been a complete and utter tragedy. Many will spend days, weeks, and months seeking where to affix blame – to BP, the Obama administration and all others involved. Sadly, our commanderin-chief’s action ultimately increases our reliance on foreign oil and costs American jobs. Offshore wells have functioned for decades with a solid safety record. We should use this opportunity to learn and not to advance an ill-conceived green political agenda. We have talked about healthcare for some, mortgage rules for all and now environmental advocacy. Isn’t it time that we talked about the economy and jobs? At the very least in this case, we should allow experts in the energy industry and the states directly affected to participate in the discussion.

From the backshop Stamp act: A senator sticks it to us Every once in a while, we come across a situation that, in our opinion, crystallizes what’s wrong with Washington with regard to its inability to get its fiscal house in order. Perfect example: We’re sure you’re familiar with the problems at the United States Postal Service. According to a study released March 1 of this year, the Postal Service will lose $238 billion during the next decade. Postmaster General John Potter is to be commended for recognizing the need for drastic action, including eliminating Saturday deliveries, which he says will save $40 billion over the next decade. Potter’s request was made to the Senate panel that oversees the USPS. Now, it’s tough to not laugh about a plan for saving money and becoming more efficient relies on our Senate, which is suspect, given their track record of fiscal disasters. But here’s the point we’re trying to make: Sen. Jon Tester (D-Mont.), in a grandstanding announcement, said, “Folks in rural and frontier communities often rely on their Saturday mail to bring them the things they need to live.” We can’t imagine that these folks, long known for their hard work and perseverance, couldn’t get by on a five-days-a-week delivery schedule. We

Brian Kelly & Steve Greenberg might add, Tester said the $40 billion dollars amounts to “relatively small savings and cost hundreds of jobs in Montana alone”. So, there you have it. A $40 billion saving plan doesn’t matter, nothing gets done, and we’re stuck paying for those rural post offices and Saturday delivery. Look for a postal increase come January. ••• As we went to press, KeyBank played host to an advanced teen driving program – free instruction well beyond standard driver’s education – and we’re hoping it was overattended. With the spate of teens dying in car accidents the last year-plus, KeyBank’s offer was noble. If it saves one life …

Religion and politics COMMENTARY By Terry Anker Conventional wisdom dictates that we shouldn’t talk religion or politics in polite company. But have those rules changed? It seems as we Americans have become less directly identified with a particular religion, we are equally less likely to be offended by those who would attack our once firmly held beliefs.  If, for example, Christianity is attacked by television personality Bill Maher as the relationship between the ignorant and their imaginary friend Jesus, we tend blithely to change the channel until his rant is focused on something more consistent with our beliefs. It has simply become un-cool to care about religion. And on the political front, more of us are calling ourselves independent. We strongly reject being labeled Democrat or Republican. Facebook alone has dozens of choices for both religious and political self-identification.  But even as we have lowered our tempers on these two traditional dividing lines for American debate, have we simply substituted our intolerance for discourse with other topics? As we collectively move past the heady euphoria from the

election of our first black president, race, and those who would use it for gain, increasingly plagues our national dialogue. A white blogger recently posted a video clip of a black government official claiming to make decisions based in skin color. The Obama administration promptly moved to have her fired. Sadly, no one checked the facts.  The official’s words were grossly taken out of context and the blogger irresponsibly chummed the dangerous waters of race-speech in the USA. It stands to point out how quick we are to judge and how little we care to listen.  Likewise, the mention of entitlement programs is met with accusations of heartlessness on one side and deadbeatedness on the other. Is the extension of unemployment, healthcare, welfare and other benefits really beyond civil conversation? If so, is there hope for tolerance?

Am I addicted to sleeping pills? COMMENTARY By Danielle Wilson I think I’m addicted to Unisom. Seriously, I’d been taking half a pill for the last four nights to help me sleep during the Wilson Family Reunion Weekend (29 people, ages five weeks to 65 years, one lake cottage, no A/C), and thought I could quit cold turkey last night now that I was back in my own – well, my inlaws’ – bed. No dice. It took me hours to fall asleep, and then I felt as if I were tossing and turning every 15 minutes. This morning, I’m chalking my sleepless night up to withdraw from doxylamine succinate, but in all honesty, my insomnia is probably the result of anxiety. Here’s the latest in my so-called life: On the upside, we do have a house we are closing on in just three short days! Yay! And my husband and I are going to my cousin’s wedding in Clearwater without our kids for a weekend getaway. Double yay! The problem is, the two events are less than 24 hours apart, which means we won’t be able to actually move in until after we return, leaving me only one week to unload three Pack Rat containers, one garage bay and several closets full of crap before school starts. So last night, in between cursing the cat for her uncanny musical resemblance to Yoko Ono and beating the bejeesus out my unusually lumpy pillows, I was trying to figure out the logistics of yet another move and whether I could get a very blue kitchen painted before Christmas. In the scheme of things though, moving in to a place is more along the lines of good anxiety, much like the excitement I feel before a vacation or my birthday. I don’t mind a few sleepless nights because of that. What I do mind and what is somewhat ruining the fun of a new house is that I still don’t have a job. Remember that “might-be-perfect” Tuesday I wrote about? Well

I didn’t get the position I interviewed for, nor did I get the next two jobs that came along. So now I’m stressed out that I’ll be unemployed forever. This would mean I won’t be contributing financially to our mortgage, which will in turn increase my husband’s stress level and require me to step up my hug game, thereby resulting in even more stress for me. It’s most definitely a vicious cycle. No job, more stress, less money, more stress, more hugs, more stress: You get the picture. And to top off my anxiety sundae with a big, juicy, tensioncovered cherry, one of my kids is complaining of “black-outs” followed by Alzheimer-like confusion. What?! Though it’s probably just migraines due to her not wearing her glasses; when I’m awake at 4:47 a.m. my mind races to epilepsy, brain tumors and pediatric stroke. Damn you, Web MD! So now the question is, do I succumb to my addiction and resume my sleep candy habit, or do I buck up and try to stay clean tonight? I feel terrible today and can’t bear another anxietyridden, no-sleep session, and I do have another interview tomorrow. On the other hand, I don’t want to be dependent on a pill, despite its pretty blue color, and I’m certain people would prefer to not hire a druggie. Of course, without my beauty sleep, I won’t score any points, either. After all, we day-walkin’ gingers need all the help we can get, including eight to 10 hours of Zs. Decisions, decisions. Ah, who am I kidding? Unisom, 1, successful intervention, 0. Peace out.

Bald eagle makes home in Carmel By Brandon Bowman Current in Carmel Woodland Springs residents can find more than their neighbors fishing on the 50-acre lake located in the neighborhood. American bald eagles have been sighted perched up in the trees and fishing in the lake. “I heard about a sighting of the bird a year ago, but just recently I saw the him for the first time,” Mark Kichler of Carmel-based Wordmark Photos said. Kichler said he saw one eagle originally and a pair of them about six weeks ago. The nest is said to be in a tree at the intersection of 106th Street and Gray Road. Eagles can make nests up to seven or eight feet wide and up to 12 feet deep, and they prefer to use the same nest each year, making minor modifications when needed. The eagle that Kichler saw and photographed is an adult bald eagle, and Mayor Jim Brainard said he’s seen the same eagle when traveling in that area. Brainard added that the nest at that intersection is three years old. Liz Hatton of For the Birds of Indiana, a bird rescue and rehabilitation center in Westfield, said she had first heard of an eagle in the area last week and said that bald eagles living in places like Carmel is not as uncommon as it might sound. “They’re in Indiana every year,” she said. “They’ll be found anywhere where there’s a large body of water.”

Bald eagles are far from extinction. In the last couple of years, the bald eagle populations have grown to nearly 10,000 pairs across the United States. At their lowest, there were 417 bald eagle pairs in 1973 when it was placed on the list of endangered species. Any eagles in the state will likely remain in Indiana for several more weeks, as fall migration for adult bald eagles does not typically begin until northern lakes start to freeze. Kevin Kane contributed to this report.

Educational foundation continues making strides for students Dorothy Ilgen are focusing on raising awareness of the 44-year-old institution. They will also direct more of the money they raise toward increasing the foundation’s 10-year-old grant program.  The foundation will still continue to award individual scholarships, but members believe they can impact hundreds of students at a time by awarding grants to teachers for specific projects. In past years, CCEF can take credit for “Art Smart Students” at Forest Dale Elementary, “The Lyrical Language of Literacy” at all elementary schools and “Operation Safe School,” which is held district wide.   Today’s Carmel property owners are the beneficiaries of a revered Carmel Public School system. Some of the credit must be directed toward those working tirelessly over the years promoting education via the Carmel Clay Education Foundation. For more information about getting involved in an upcoming fundraiser, or to provide volunteer assistance, visit home.  

COMMENTARY By Jeff Worrell About 10 years ago, I attended a traditional end-of-the-school-year event, Carmel High School scholarship night. During the evening, hundreds of graduating seniors paraded across the stage to claim a check acknowledging academic achievement, civic leadership or some other unique indicator of the best CHS has to offer. Though I was astonished and impressed, I wasn’t at all surprised.  After all, Carmel is known for its academic superiority and strong behind-the-scenes support from parents, merchants and civic organizations. The success of that evening 10 years ago was strongly influenced by the hardworking board of directors and volunteers of the Carmel Clay Education Foundation.  But CCEF President Jill Pilcher Reese (CHS ’85) reminded me recently that the foundation may not be the household name it used to be.  “We have lost some of our name recognition over time,” she said. “An increasingly transient population, the changing face of philanthropy over the last few years and considerable new nonprofit competition in Carmel … have had an effect.”  So, this year Jill, volunteer members of the board of directors and Executive Director

Local group watches over residents in need By Brandie Bohney Current in Carmel For six months now, Project Lifesaver has been watching over several residents of Hamilton County. The program, designed primarily for sufferers of Alzheimer’s, McCormick autism, Down syndrome, and dementia, outfits participants with a wrist or ankle bracelet that contains a locating device.  If the participant would wander away from home or family, the transmitter device can be used to quickly locate the individual.  David McCormick, who is now the Project Lifesaver (PLS) Coordinator for Hamilton County, saw the need for bringing PLS to Hamilton County several years ago after an Alzheimer’s patient who had wandered from her home was found dead.  “ We heard about [PLS] through Indianapolis,” he says. “They’ve had searches for clients where they located them very quickly … once we heard about [PLS], we contacted [Indianapolis PLS coordinators] for more information, and we decided we had to have it and make it available to Hamilton County.”  Rather than taking hours to locate people who have wandered away from home, organizations trained to use PLS can generally find them in minutes. Of the residents McCormick

has outfitted with transmitters so far, only one has wandered away to date, but she has done so three times. “The average recovery time in locating her is about ten minutes,” McCormick notes.  “Those without the bracelets, it was taking us about nine to twelve hours to find them if they would wander away.”  Receiving or getting a family member outfitted with a transmitter requires a relatively lengthy application process, including a statement from a physician noting the medical condition of person who is to wear the device. The program is free, however, to residents of Hamilton County. McCormick explains, “We make it 100 percent free to residents of Hamilton county, including servicing of the transmitter; if it becomes lost or damaged, we will replace it for free, and we replace the batteries monthly at no charge.”  Project Lifesaver is a not-for-profit organization that holds various fundraisers throughout the year. If you would like to contribute to the organization, contact PLS at 776-6PLS (6757) or email project.lifesaver@hamiltoncounty. Hamilton County residents interested in more information about PLS or having a loved one equipped with a transmitter should use the same contact information or check out the PLS International Web site:

Capturing success

Carmel resident Bruce Pallman has a nationally prominent camera business and a new local location

“In this business, there are no winners and no losers. Everybody is a winner, because they get what they want, and we make a profit.” -Bruce Pallman

By Matt Werner Current in Carmel Roberts Imaging has had a prominent place in the photo industry for decades, but owner Bruce Pallman still is excited about the opportunity provided by his new Carmel location. Pallman, a Carmel resident, originally opened a Carmel store 10 years ago after persistent requests from residents looking to avoid trekking downtown. His new location, 12761 Old Meridian St., Street officially opened July 1, but a grand-opening celebration was held last Friday and Saturday to officially welcome customers to his new space. “We needed more depth and breadth of our product line, so we decided to move to our new location,” Pallman said. “We found a great spot on Old Meridian, which is an area that is starting to build up. We definitely found a good growth area in Carmel, which has me really excited about the new store.” Roberts originally opened in 1957 at 255 S. Meridian St., Indianapolis, as a jewelry store, and then began to carry luggage and cameras. After the Pan Am Games in 1987, Pallman realized the potential market for high-quality camera equipment. “The Pan Am Games brought a lot of photographers, and we started doing a lot of business with them,” Pallman said. “By the mid-’90s we became very prevalent in that market.”

World-renowned sellers Roberts Imaging sells camera equipment to nearly all major newspapers in the U.S. as well as magazines, and it even does business overseas, including in Australia, France, the United Kingdom, Spain and Italy.

Pallman graduated from Indiana University in 1974 and began working for his father the next day at the downtown store. He later went to law school and graduated in 1978; he passed the bar exam the same year. Two years later, though, he wasn’t practicing law; he was running the company. “I liked the excitement, action and variety of opportunities every day,” he said. “In law, everything is a negotiation. In this business, there are no winners and no losers. Everybody is a winner, because they get what they want, and we make a profit.” While Roberts arguably is a great place for anyone to purchase high-quality equipment, the company does business with several high-end clients, including Sports Illustrated and several other notable publications nationwide. “We are now selling to most major newspapers in the United States like the New York Times, New York Post (and) Chicago Tribune,” he said. “You name it, and we’re probably selling to them.” Before Roberts became suppliers to major media, the staff had to know how to sell the equipment and how to get its foot in the door in a very tough industry. Everyone learned to sell by going to catalog showrooms, and they created connections in the industry by traveling to trade shows and workshops. Additionally, they got to know photographers to better understand their needs and expectations. Those efforts eventually paid off. “Now we’re doing our own things at trade shows,” Pallman said, adding the reason for Roberts’ success is the result of highquality, personal service. “Our philosophy is to treat every person as soon as they walk in the door,” he said. “We really try to go the extra mile and that contributes to the growth of this company.” Even though the store has become prevailing in the photography community, Pallman said he still has to keep up with chang-

ing times. “We became very big with selling cameras to insurance companies, but that market has dwindled. Plus, film went out of style,” he said. “We’re getting our foot in the door in the forensics field as well as government agencies. We’re always looking for new markets because the old markets will dry up.” While the store makes the most of its profit from camera equipment sales, you can still find jewelry in the stores. “We still have the jewelry because of my father,” he said. “It still makes us some money, and it’s where we started. It keeps us grounded.”

new location

Roberts now has moved to a new location at 12761 Old Meridian St. Its phone number is 818.9800.

DISPATCHES » Matching shoes with suits – The decision between a brown pair of dress shoes and a black pair should depend solely on the color of your suit. According to Esquire's fashion Nick Sullivan, either shoe color can be used with navy and mid-gray suits, but charcoal and black suits should always be accompanied by black shoes. Brown shoes should always be used with brown suits. -Esquire » Look better in photos – To look your best in photographs, follow these simple rules: 1. Put one foot slightly behind the other, centered with your spine. This will make you stand up straight. 2. Lower your chin and rotate your face to display a strong jawline. 3. Position the camera so it's shooting at a slightly downward angle. 4. Opt for soft lighting. 5. Use a telephoto lens to flatten your face. -Esquire » Must have tweed – One of former fashion model Lauren Bush's wardrobe must-haves is the tweed jacket. Pair it with jeans on the weekend, black pants for the office or over a cocktail dress for a ladylike look-the possibilities are endless. Proenza Schouler's tweed blazer ($1,180, has a bit of a downtown edge and is completely versatile in black and white. White House Black Market has a range of less costly options.

The sound economics of design COMMENTARY By Vicky Earley Is there such a thing as a design emergency? Perhaps. I say that because a mistake can be quite costly and can be the source of some pretty intense anxiety. Once a mistake is made, it is not uncommon to learn it is the source of a cascade of mistakes that are done in a desperate and knee-jerk attempt to rectify the situation. I really don’t like getting those “911” calls. I can almost feel the angst of the homeowner on the other end of the line. There is a unique sound of desperation in the voice that can signal only one thing: Something has been changed in the home, and it just is not working. Often, a call to a design professional can salvage these situations that are ripe with stress, but typically the cost is greater than if it had been done with the guidance of a designer from the beginning. The issues range from a new paint color that looks like a YMCA swimming pool to a sofa that won’t make the turn into its intended room. Regardless of the magnitude of the problem, it can be overwhelming to the caller and the source of sleepless nights. The cost of consulting with an interior deco-

rator or designer from the onset of a project need not consume every cent allocated for furnishings! In fact, working with a professional can often result in better pricing than if you were to “go it alone” with the weekend sales at the big-box stores. The goal is to do it once and do it right. Your decorator or designer can help you answer some pretty important design questions before the first selection is made: • How does each new interior design element relate to the overall scheme? • How will the anticipated wear and tear affect the furnishings? • What soon will these changes look dated? • How can color be used most effectively?

• How do these changes impact the flow of the room? When you find the right designer, it is not about imposing ideas and personal taste. It is about you and your designer coming together, capitalizing on the designer’s experience and resources, to create a unique space that you truly love. The right design professional will strive to help the client develop their vision while analyzing potential pitfalls and elements overlooked. It is the job of the design professional to help you visualize the overall project and illustrate the effects before they are actually executed. A deep sectional that seats the entire Bunko group might sound good in theory, but when it is visualized in a floor plan, some problems might become evident. It is far better to discover this on paper than after the investment is made and it is deemed a huge mistake. Once again, the goal is do it once and do it right. That is never a mistake.

Grammar reading suggestions COMMENTARY By Brandie Bohney Readers regularly e-mail questions about resources I would recommend for students and adults to improve their speaking and writing skills. I’m always happy to oblige, but I thought that because today is the first day back to school (for my daughter in Carmel Schools, anyway), I’d give you a resource suggestion list in honor of the beginning of a new school year.   For early elementary students: “Grammar Rock” (CD or DVD)  My kids (one first-grader, one preschooler) love the “Grammar Rock” disk. I checked it out at the library once on a nostalgic whim, and I had to renew it twice because the girls enjoyed it so much. And because of it, my older daughter knew all of the parts of speech in kindergarten. It’s a good starting point for talking about words and parts of speech and how they function. For middle school and struggling high school students: “What You Need to Know About Improving Basic English Skills” by Jerry D. Reynolds and Marion L. Steet  I used this as a resource when I taught remedial summer school for high school students. It’s a great book, and the answers are all in the back for you to check your work. It’s not a barrel of monkeys, mind you; it’s brief lessons followed by exercises, but it’s pretty effective.  For high school and college students:

“Strunk and White’s Elements of Style” OK, so this is not exactly a shocker to anyone. A lot of schools use Strunk and White as a textbook. It is, in my opinion, an end-all, be-all guide for clarity in writing. And it’s not drier than a dog fart, either.  For adults: “Strunk and White; Eats, Shoots and Leaves” by Lynn Truss; “Woe is I” by Patricia T. O’Conner  Everyone beyond middle school should own a copy of Strunk and White, as far as I am concerned, and the latter two titles are best-selling books relating to grammar. They are all funny and full of good advice. My only word of caution is that Truss is British, and therefore a few of the punctuation pointers she gives are appropriate for British English but not American English. (Yes, there is a difference.) Also, for those of you who really enjoy the Internet instead of a real book, I think Purdue’s OWL (online writing lab) is outstanding. It is a broad resource, offering everything from basic descriptions of parts of speech and sentences to avoiding plagiarism and APA and MLA style guidelines. It’s user-friendly, well organized, and a good, quick resource. Brandie Bohney is a grammar enthusiast and former English teacher. If you have a grammarrelated question, please email her at

COMMENTARY By Becky Kapsalis New beginnings. New clothes, new schools (maybe), new teachers, new school supplies. We scramble around these last few days of summer making sure our kids are well prepared for school. The day of, we make sure the hair is combed, teeth are brushed and the kids are on time. This, often, becomes second nature for us. We send them off with the knowledge they will have the best opportunity to learn, given that we have purchased the supplies they need to succeed.  Sounds easy enough, but have we really prepared them to thrive? Have we provided them with the emotional encouragement to persevere, the confidence to know they can, the willingness to co-operate, the attitude of respect, and, finally, the spirit to accept themselves for who they are – and the kind of student they are capable of being? How can we know if we’ve accomplished these things? We can tell if they will be motivated to learn if we’ve taught them to be self-motivated. Giving them enough time in the morning to prepare for the day means they’ve gotten

enough sleep. Having them get their clothes ready from the night before gives them more time to eat a good breakfast. At the very least we owe it to our kids to send them to their teachers on time and prepared to learn. You’ve heard the expression, “You can lead a horse to water, but you can’t make him drink” and, as it applies to kids, it becomes our responsibility to create the thirst. We do this by opening up their minds at home. We ask curious questions. We help them find answers to their curious questions. We give them choices. We role model. We include them in on family decisions. We do these things and more so that when they are in school and out of their comfort zone, it becomes second nature for them to choose to drink from the trough, thereby quenching their own thirsts. These, too, are school supplies. Hugs! Becky Kapsalis. aka YiaYia (pronounced Ya-Ya.) is a certified parenting advocate and child behavior coach. You may reach her at 317-848-7979 or e-mail

Carmel, Westfield residents star in Indianapolis production By Danielle Turnbull Current in Carmel Carmel and Westfield residents make up much of the case of Footlite Musicals’ production of the Stephen Sondheim musical “Into the Woods,” premiering Aug. 12 at 8 p.m. The play is a tale about Cinderella, Jack and the Beanstalk, Little Red Riding Hood and many other beloved fairy-tale characters, but this story deviates from what one will typically find in storybooks. The show is a part of the community-based volunteer theater group’s summer program for young performers, and eight of the 26 cast members are from Carmel and Westfield this year.  Director Ed Trout said this specific musical was chosen for two reasons. First, the lessons it provides to this age group are good ones. The story centers on what it’s like living in today’s society and obstacles one must overcome throughout one’s life. Second, although the

stories are twisted, it contains something familiar to all. “It’s full of familiar characters,” Trout said. “It has a lot of draw and connection with the audience.”  Each cast member of the show is between the ages of 13 and 18 and come from all over central Indiana. Open auditions, including both singing and reading lines, are held for each young performers production, and for “Into the Woods,” 99 people turned out for the auditions. Trout said that he had to turn away some good talent this year.  However, the selected talent has been working hard to get the show together. With two and a half weeks until the show opens, Trout is hopeful. He thinks the show is terrific so far and hopes a lot of people come out to see the hard work each cast member has put into the production. In addition, this is one production in Footlite Musicals’ 55th season. Trout has directed a number of shows at the theater, including the

last two summer young artist productions, and he loves being a part of the Footlite Musical legacy. “It’s great to be involved with something that has that kind of longevity,” Trout said.

IF YOU GO Dates for the show: August 12, 13, 14, 15 and 19, 20, 21, 22 For ticket information visit List of locals in the show: Chelsea Alexander, Carmel – a Spirit of the Wood and Snow White Sarah Brocker, Carmel – a Spirit of the Wood Surina Gangwani, Carmel – a Spirit of the Wood and Sleeping Beauty Matthew Hook, Carmel – Rapunzel’s Prince Gus Leagre, Carmel – a Spirit of the Wood and the voice of the Giant Sydney Sorrell, Carmel – Lucinda, one of Cinderella’s stepsisters Cody Stiglich, Carmel – a Spirit of the Wood Anna Christianson, Westfield – Cinderella’s mother and Little Red Riding Hood’s grandmother

when eddie met salad

Use your bounty of summer squash to make a fresh and colorful pasta salad. The recipe calls for bowtie pasta, but you can use any shaped pasta you have on hand. Ingredients • 16 ounces  farfalle (bowtie) pasta • 1  pound  yellow summer (crookneck) squash, cut into 1-in. chunks • 1  pound  zucchini, halved lengthwise and cut into 1-in. chunks • 1/2  cup  olive oil, divided • Salt • 2  tablespoons  Champagne vinegar • About 1/2 tsp. freshly ground black pepper • 2  tablespoons  chopped fresh oregano • 1/4  to 1/2 cup toasted pine nuts • 1/4  cup  chopped pitted kalamata olives Preparation 1. Cook pasta in a large pot of boiling salted water until tender to the bite, 9 to 12 minutes or according to package directions. Drain and rinse thoroughly under cold water until completely cool (see Notes). 2. Prepare a gas or charcoal grill for medium heat (you can hold your hand 5 in. above cooking grate only 5 to 7 seconds). Thread squash and zucchini chunks onto 10- to

12-in. metal skewers and place on a baking sheet. Brush vegetables with 1/4 to 1/3 cup olive oil on all sides and sprinkle with salt to taste. Transfer to grill and cook 10 to 15 minutes, turning occasionally, or until vegetables are very tender. 3. Meanwhile, whisk together remaining olive oil, the vinegar, and 1/2 tsp. pepper in a small bowl. 4. With a fork, push vegetables off skewers back onto baking sheet and toss them in oil left there. In a large bowl, toss together pasta, vegetables, oregano, pine nuts, and olives. Add dressing and salt and pepper to taste; toss. Serve warm or cold.

By Kate Atkinson

Jackson Brodie is a music-loving private detective who dreams of retiring to a white stucco house with a blue door in the south of France. He has a remarried ex-wife and a young daughter that she uses as a pawn. One day, two middle-aged sisters hire Brodie to look into a 35-year-old case. Since their father’s death, new information pertinent to their sister’s disappearance has surfaced. Then, a man turns up in Brodie’s waiting room and asks him to reopen an unsolved case. As a

police investigator ten years ago, Brodie remembers the unsolved case vividly. Finally, a third case from the past intersects with Brodie’s other investigations creating a spider web of unexpected relationships. Kate Atkinson puts a new spin on the detective story in “Case Histories.” She offsets heart-breaking situations with humor in this exploration of loss and regeneration. Atkinson’s protagonist is an English version of the unlucky-in-love private eye. Readers who enjoy contemporary authors such as Michael Chabon, Nick Hornby and Jonathan Lethem may want to try this unusual detective story.

State Fair roundup

State Fair under way – The Indiana State Fair began last week on August 6 and will run through August 22. The fair is open daily from 6 a.m. to 11 p.m. (Sundays through Thursdays) or 12: a.m. (Fridays and Saturdays) though tickets ($8 for adults, kids five and under are free) will not be sold after 9 p.m. and 9:30 p.m., respectively. Exhibits are open from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. For more information visit ‘American Gothic’ sculpture to towers over Celebration Park – A 25-foot-tall sculpture inspired by Grant Wood’s iconic painting “American Gothic” will stand guard in Dow AgroSciences Celebration Park throughout the Great Indiana State Fair. “God Bless America” which has traveled to Chicago, Florida, Arizona and New York, will feature the well-known farmer with his pitchfork and daughter by his side. The sculpture, installed July 26 with the help of giant cranes, is a reminder of the nation’s agricultural roots. “God Bless America” was created by artist J. Seward Johnson, whose sculptures can be seen in the Carmel Arts & Design District. The sculpture is on loan from California-based The Sculpture Foundation. Free Tribute Town debuts at State Fair – The Stones, Eagles, CCR all on one bill? A trio of tribute bands will make that happen – at least, musically – at a new free event Aug. 19 in the Hoosier Lottery Grandstand. Called Tribute

Town, the three-set show begins at 5 p.m. and will feature three tribute bands – Blue Moon Swamp, Hot Rocks and 7 Bridges – replicating the sound and visuals of John Fogerty/ Creedence Clearwater Revival, The Rolling Stones and The Eagles, respectively. The event is part of the ABATE of Indiana Motorcycle Day. ‘Food for Thought’ on display – The Indiana Humanities Council is hoping visitors to the Indiana State Fair don’t just sample a variety of foods, but also talk about food, learn about what’s on their plates and think about how food influences their culture, and cultures around the world. To do so, fairgoers can stop by the “Food for Thought” traveling exhibit, explore the Recipe Trail and read winning entries in the storytelling contest. Food for Thought is a statewide, two-year program that examines food and its role in Hoosiers’ lives and culture. The exhibit will be at the State Fair through August 22 in the FFA Pavilion on the north side of the fairgrounds.

Duck down when you pass a church COMMENTARY By David Cain It was a Tuesday, and I had just left a meeting downtown. Heading north on Meridian Street, the windows were down, and I was enjoying the gorgeous day and surprisingly mild weather.  As I escaped from downtown like Thelma and Louise, the phone rang. I rolled up the windows to quiet the car and take the call. As soon as I answered the phone, a shot rang out. It sounded like a pistol went off in the car. I felt something hit my neck. I screamed something. I was in a state of panic. And, I guess whenever you think someone just shot at you, your natural instincts are to stop. Without thought, I pulled the car over and felt my neck. There was a little blood, but not enough to say I’d been shot.   I looked around and didn’t see any gunman. As it turns out, a lawnmower launched a rock directly at my car. The rock hit my driver’s side window with such velocity that glass hit me in the neck. Roll down the window, and the rock would have been embedded in my neck. That phone call saved my life.   When a rock is hurled from a lawnmower

and randomly strikes a car traveling 40 miles per hour on a busy road in the middle of the day, it’s cause to reflect. Add the fact that the lawn happened to be that of a stately church and it really makes you wonder. Was the rock a warning? Was that rock trying to tell me something? Was there a lesson in this near tragedy? I concluded two viewpoints: This was either karma for my great living (it missed me), or it was a warning. For certain, however, there was a lesson.   And this lesson wasn’t lost on me. Now I keep my windows up all the time. I wince a bit each time I pass a lawnmower, and I scrunch down if they are mowing a church lawn. I am also reminded that life takes a little bit of luck. An occasional favorable bounce can make all the difference.   David Cain works at MediaSauce, a digital media and online marketing company in Carmel.

Mobile Veterinary Care provides veterinary services including but not limited to preventive medicine, surgeries, diagnostics and radiography for dogs, cats and horses at home or on the farm mostly in Fishers, Westfield, Carmel, Noblesville and Zionsville. Prices are generally equivalent to a stationary clinic’s prices. After the mobile truck arrives, the pet-owner almost always brings the pet out to the truck for the exam. Large animals should be confined to a stall or small paddock so they are easily catchable when the truck arrives. The service recently expanded its evening and Saturday hours from 7:30 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Thursday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Friday and 8 a.m. to noon Saturday. Stationary clinic appointments are also available at the Conner Street office. Low cost vaccines for dogs and cats are scheduled on Wednesdays from 7 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the Conner St. address. Owner Jason Herrmann, DVM, grew up in Pendleton, Ind., with a variety of animals, (horses, sheep, goats, rabbits, dogs, cats, and more) leading to his interest in veterinary medicine. He studied biology and veterinary medicine at Purdue University, graduating in 1999. He has since practiced veterinary medicine in the Indianapolis area and has realized his dream as a mobile, mixed animal practioner. Noblesville native Kelly Everson, DVM, joined the staff in April. She did her undergraduate studies at Purduen and received her veterinary degree from Western University of Health Sciences in California in 2008. Owner: Jason Herrmann, DVM 3501 E.

Artificial sweeteners work against weight loss COMMENTARY By Angella LaSalle M.D. Thinking changing from sugar to an artificial sweetener like Nutrasweet or Splenda will help with weight loss? Well, think again. Recent studies have shown the use of artificial sweeteners actually blunts satiety signals in the brain, triggering more calorie intake. Researchers found the risk of type 2 diabetes was elevated in soda drinkers, regardless of whether it was regular or diet soda. Though some argued that soda drinking could be considered a hallmark of a poor diet, other research has shown that artificial sweeteners may actually trigger an increase in the level of insulin within the body. Higher insulin levels are associated with weight gain, especially in the abdominal area, and they lead to the development of diabetes and increased inflammation, which can lead to other chronic diseases. Hundreds of times more sweet than regular sugar, the sweetener fools the body into thinking a large glucose load is coming in. The body releases a priming dose of insuCOUPON lin, but when the calories aren’t there to counter FREE the insulin, the body sends out more hunger sig20 DRINK with $3.50 purchase of nals avoid 46oz. bagto of buttery popcorn hypoglycemia and causes increased

hunger. Artificial sweeteners have also been implicated in the development of migraines, fatigue, muscle pain and other symptoms. Read labels. Flavored waters, drink powders and many processed foods contain artificial sweeteners. Be wary of anything that advertises itself to be low-calorie or of less sugar, and look at all of the ingredients. Nutrasweet and Splenda often are listed as aspartame and sucralose or other trade names. Stevia, an herb used for its sweetening properties, has not been well studied, and it isn’t known whether it has similar effects on the body, so the overall recommendation is to limit using sugars and sweeteners of all kinds. Whether natural or synthetic, what matters is how the body’s chemistry responds to it. Sweeteners may reduce calories, but higher insulin levels can lead you down a path toward disease and weight gain, and that’s the real bottom line.

weigh in.” There’s nothing quite like a maximum effort lift on an empty stomach. “Don’t rely on your music to pump you up.” In the end, it won’t be on during your lifts, and there’s a big risk that you’ll get too amped too soon. “Remember your commands!” Missing a lift because you didn’t read the directions is horrible planning. Ultimately, the key is to stay calm and to thrive off of the unfamiliar environment. If you can, you’ll be happy with your performance. And Steve listened to what everyone had to say, because he went 9-for-9 and hit personal records in every lift, even lifting numbers that weren’t in his range of plausible numbers. Feel free to contact me if you’re interested in helping the sport grow.

COMMENTARY By Lance Goyke Powerlifting is a fantastic sport to get in to, especially for former athletes who are no longer competitive in their chosen traditional sport. Like any sport, there are drawbacks. Powerlifters are more prone to joint degradation than your average sedentary person, but I have a theory that most lifters don’t take enough time off of lifting heavy things to focus on staying healthy, and that is why people have a singleminded view of what a powerlifter is. Having done two meets of my own, I volunteered to make the six-hour trip to Midland, Mich. to be the guy who babysits the lifter. In this case, it was my fellow IUPUI student, Steve, who I was handling. I keep coming back to telling Steve a few things over and over. “Make sure you hit your openers, ESPECIALLY on your squat.” You only get nine total lifts (three squats, three bench presses and three deadlifts), and ideally you will go 9-for-9. Missing a lift can bring down your good vibes and mess you up for the rest of the day. “Make sure you have a place to eat after you

Storming the intellectual ramparts Commentary By Bob Walters Author Mark Noll graciously replied to an email I sent after I finished reading his “Scandal of the Evangelical Mind.” I wondered, now 16 years after Christianity Today named “Scandal” its 1994 Book of the Year, if he thought Evangelicals were gaining ground intellectually. I asked if there was a follow-up book in the works. He responded that as it happens, he has just recently finished a manuscript that Eerdman’s in Grand Rapids will publish next year, titled “Jesus Christ and the Life of the Mind.” Noll said the book “tried to make a positive statement concerning how traditional Christian belief can support strong intellectual life.” He also referred to a postscript he wrote for the new book that is a revision and expansion of an article he wrote for First Things journal, Oct. 2004, “The Evangelical Mind Today.” He lists 10 areas where positive impact is being made. I’m looking forward to the release of the book. Noll points to a couple of glaring intellectual weaknesses in modern evangelicalism. One is the nearly total absence of serious consideration for tradition and the 1800 years of Christian thought that preceded the great evangelical revivals. Missing from evangelicalism are the likes of Augustine, Aquinas, Galileo, Luther and Calvin. Similarly Jonathan Edwards, C.S. Lewis, even Pope John Paul II and Pope Benedict XVI, are

immense Christian intellects given less stature in the evangelical community than a Sunday preacher. Sorry … not to harangue any specific preacher, but to put a point on it – deep feelings do not equate to deep theology, or bedrock, true, biblical understanding. We cannot study great music without studying great musicians. How could we possibly study great theology without studying great theologians? Quoting Galileo, “It is most pious to say and most prudent to take for granted that the Holy Scripture can never lie, as long as its true meaning has been grasped.” A second glaring weakness is evangelical separatism, a resistance to engaging the Christian mind and energy in the whole spectrum of modern learning, from political science to economics to linguistics, history, science and literary criticism. Says Noll, “Personal faith in Christ is a necessary condition for Christian intellectual life, for only a living thing can develop.” Evangelicals definitely have the heart, soul and strength of personal faith … Noll insists we plug in our minds. Bob Walters (www.believerbob., email rlwcom@aol. com) figures this is a good stepping off point as school begins. Take Christ along, in your heart and mind.

COMMENTARY By Rachel Noble I once unloaded on my boyfriend about the frustrations I was having at work. I absolutely hate crying in front of people, yet I found myself getting teary eyed and thinking, “He’ll think you’re a wimp if you cry, so hold it together, sister.” As I started to unleash the issues, I looked over at him and noticed he was looking at me in the most empathetic and caring way, just listening as I ranted on. He didn’t call me a wimp for crying or even try to fix my problem. Instead, he made sure I knew that he was on my side and was there to comfort me. His hug felt so good that it took me only a few minutes to start feeling better about the whole situation. Men amaze me. Here are just a few of the many reasons I would like to shout my three cheers for men: • Men are able to “compartmentalize” in order to focus on the task at hand. While women tend to carry work and household stress around with us, our man is able to devote 100 percent of his attention to whatever it is that needs to get done. • Because of their strong sense of play, men help to lighten us up. Women, don’t get mad at your guy when there are dishes to

DISPATCHES » Cat causes wreck – Oregon State Police issued a missing cat alert for a feline that caused a car crash, escaped from a smashed SUV and vanished last week. Southern Oregon University student Brittany Spady rolled her Ford Explorer after her long-haired tortoiseshell cat crawled between the brake and gas pedals. Spady, who said her cat refuses to ride in a carrier, took her eyes off the road to try and stop the cat. The cat bolted, vanishing into nearby forest. » Pet owners pay for high-tech care – Around the nation, veterinarians are practicing ever more advanced medicine on the nation's 77 million dogs, 90 million cats and a myriad other animals — treatments that vie with the best of human medicine. The driving force is "the changing role of the pet in our society," said veterinarian Patty Khuly. » Iams pet food recalled – On July 27, Proctor & Gamble recalled Iams and Eukanuba veterinary and some specialized dry pet food (both dog and cat) as a precautionary measure because of the potential to be contaminated with salmonella.

How do you teach your dog to walk politely? First, have a clear mental image of the behavior you want. Second, prevent your dog from being reinforced for behavior you don’t want. Next, generously reinforce approximations of the behavior you do want; it’s a shaping process. I use a click and reward method, and I like to have two leash-walking behaviors. WHAT YOU CAN DO • Have a clear mental image of the leashwalking behavior you strive to train. • Prevent your dog from being reinforced for pulling on the leash by stopping, backing up or walking the other direction when your dog pulls. • Provide generous and varied reinforcement for approximations of the leash-walking behavior you want.

PETS OF THE WEEK Monique is a 3-year-old female black lab/ shepherd mix. Monique is a very sweet girl, but she can be a bit shy when first meeting someone new. She is a sensitive girl, but it only takes a few seconds though and she will warm up and seek out attention. Monique is house trained and knows the command “sit.” She would love to find a family with older children who understand she is unsure about new people and new situations, but as she becomes more confident, she will make a perfect family pet. Quicksilver is a 5-year-old male tabby DSH. Quicksilver is gorgeous guy with amazing green eyes who arrived at the shelter on March 13 when he was found by a concerned citizen wandering the streets. He gets along great with other cats and doesn’t mind being petted, but he isn’t sure about becoming a lap cat just yet. However with a little patience and love, he may decide that’s a good thing. Quicksilver loves food and treats and would do well in any home.  For more information on these and other animals at the Humane Society, call 317-773-4974 or go to

How do I reform a puller into a pleasant walking companion? COMMENTARY By John Mikesell One of the more frustrating experiences for positive dog trainers is watching their clients being dragged by their dogs across the parking lot toward their cars – just moments after training class is dismissed. • If none of us want dogs to pull, then why is it that so many dogs do pull? There are several reasons. • Their humans haven’t managed to reinforce polite leash walking strongly enough to overcome the high-value competing reinforcers in their dogs’ environments. • Pulling is sometimes reinforced (by allowing the dog to go where he wants when he pulls), and behaviors that are intermittently reinforced become very durable/resistant to extinction. (It’s hard to make them go away.) • Dogs are confused by owners who sometimes want their dogs to walk in perfect heel position, and sometimes let their dogs wander, sniff, and yes, pull. It’s just not a natural behavior. Unlike sit, down, touch, jump, and many of the other behaviors we put on cue, dogs rarely plod sedately along a straight line of their own accord. Because it’s not a behavior that comes naturally to them, we have to work hard to make it reinforcing and convince them it’s a behavior worth offering.

Soft-filtered water ... not a hard decision

Tips for dealing with “CAPTCHAs” COMMENTARY By Gary Hubbard CAPTCHAs are those images of crazy random letters and numbers that many Web sites require you to decipher in order to submit or log-in to a resource. If there was an easy way to bypass them, it would defeat the whole purpose of using them. CAPTCHA is an acronym for Completely Automated Public Turing test to tell Computers and Humans Apart and is a challenge-response test that was developed to fight “spam-bots.” Spam-bots are automated systems that surf the Internet looking for ways to post spam messages to forums, blogs, wikis, guest books or any of a wide variety of Web forms. CAPTCHAs were developed because many Web sites were getting more junk postings or form submissions than legitimate ones, but as with any computer based security system, it causes a lot of heartburn for actual users. To make things worse, the bad guys have developed a whole host of circumvention techniques, (including the use of cheap “human solvers” in foreign countries that are paid 80 cents to $1 per 1000 solved CAPTCHAs) that are causing Web sites to use even more difficultto-read CAPTCHAs, which results in more frustration for all of us.

on one or two characters but still allow you through, so getting it absolutely correct isn’t that critical, as the system is just trying to figure out if you are a human submitter. All CAPTCHAs have a button that allows you to request a different challenge, so if what you see is too difficult to decipher, request another one. Another problem for many of us older users with less than optimum vision is that the characters are too small to read. In most cases, the CAPTCHA can be “blown up” by telling your browser you want to zoom in. Some CAPTCHAs also have an audio option (look for a speaker icon to flip to an audio challenge) and in those cases, spaces are generally required. There are some promising new CAPTCHA technologies coming to market, which incorporate image or video challenges such as those being offered by NuCaptcha (http://NuCaptcha. com ). So if you are a website owner who wants to make it easier for your users to submit forms, checkout the free NuCaptcha Basic service.

This battle is going to continue to rage on, and hopefully the technology will evolve to be more human friendly. But for the time being, we all have to deal with the side effects of this filtering process. A number of things many people do not know might help reduce the stress of dealing with these digital barriers. CAPTCHAs don’t generally require absolute accuracy to allow you to pass, so the first tip is not to Gary Hubbard is the owner of worry about trying to replicate what you see in its Data Doctors Computer Services - Have a exact form. For instance, spaces, punctuation and technology question? Send it to capitalization are all unnecessary in most cases.

People are getting a little wild with the names these days COMMENTARY By Mike Redmond I used to joke that if I had a son I would name him Edmond. Edmond Redmond. Much laughter would follow. OK, maybe a couple of nervous chuckles. Anyway, I see now that my joke is small potatoes indeed compared to some of the Laff Riots people are hanging on their kids these days. For example, according to (as they say on TV) our good friends at, one of the hotter new baby names for girls is Lux. Yes, Lux. Like the unit of measurement for illumination. Or the Latin word for light. Or soap: “Hi, this is our daughter Lux, and over there is her brother Castile.” That’s not as much of a joke as you might think. The number one trendy new boys’ name is, in fact, Castile, like the soap, except it’s being spelled Castiel. But wait, as they say on TV. There’s more! Other entries in the Top Ten Fastest Rising Names Guaranteed To Get Your Son Massacred On The Playground are: Bentley (a car), Easton (a sporting good company), Zion (a church), St. John (also a church); Leland (my old junior high school in Bethesda, Md.); Kaiden (one of the popular “-den” names along with Brayden, Jayden, and one you REALLY don’t want to give a boy, Maiden); Lennon (a Beatle or, if you watch the Lawrence Welk reruns, a sister) and Eoin (a typing exercise).

OK, I was kidding about Eoin. It’s not a typing exercise. It’s an Irish name, meaning “assortment of vowels thrown together with a consonant on the end.” And it’s pronounced just as you would think: “Phil.” Now, girls, don’t go getting all smug. In the trendy name … um, trend, you have some lulus. And sad to say, Lulu isn’t among them. Tenley, however, leads the list. And what, you ask, is a Tenley? Supposedly it comes from Old English (also known as Olde Englishe) and means “Dennis’ Field,” as in “plante the barleye and oates in tenley,” I guess. However, its popularity should not be attributed to a surge of interest in ancient agriculture, but to the fact that it was the name of someone on a so-called “reality” show, an increasingly popular entertainment thanks to the growing number of people who do not have what we used to call “lives.”

Other entries include Sookie (once a popular name for workhorses, now a TV vampire), Ever (and its twin, After), Tinsley (isn’t that a brand of tea?), Kinsley (of course), Everly (a brother), Briella (a small umbrella) and Navi. Yes. Navi. People are naming their children after big, blue and – this is the important part – imaginary alien characters from an overblown movie. Viewed that way, it’s really not that far removed from naming your kids Bugs and Daffy. I suppose it could be worse. Oh, wait. It is. According to another list, names poised for popularity include Edgar and Julius. Compared to that, Bentley is practically sane. Actually, I went to school briefly with a fellow named Bentley. He was a 23-year-old high school sophomore with a jelly roll haircut and a legendary case of BO. The dude had an entire section of the lunchroom to himself, for the seven or eight weeks he attended school. Let’s hope the new crop of little Bentleys don’t follow his lead, in the academic or personal hygiene departments. Especially the latter. There may not be enough Castiels to set them right.

Has that much changed in the past 30 years? COMMENTARY By Dick Wolfsie This month marks my 30th year in television. It seems like just yesterday I was nervously standing in front of a camera, not sure which direction to look, unprepared for my segment, babbling away incoherently. Wait a second, that was yesterday! This insight has made me realize there are countless things in my life I am no better at than when I started on this earth 63 years ago. I say countless, but I’m going to count some of them anyway. 1. Am I a better dresser? For most of my life, I’ve been trying to match a shirt with a pair of pants. I still ask my wife before we go out: “Does this look OK?” For our entire marriage, she’s responded the same way: “You look just fine. Don’t you have any other pants?” 2. Am I a better driver? I figure I’ve driven at least a million miles, but I still have half the world honking at me to get in my own lane. People still flip me the bird and shake their fist at me, just like the day I got my permit. Five decades – no improvement. Don’t feel sorry for me.

Just get the heck out of my way. 3. Am I a better golfer? Not by a single stroke. In fact, I’m worse. I’ve wasted 2,000 rounds of golf, 4,000 golf balls, 160,000 swings, and 10,000 expletives. I’m depressed just writing about this. But not enough to cancel my tee time. I’m also no better in bowling. But here’s the difference: I don’t care. 4. Do I have a better sense of direction? When I was a toddler, I got lost in our two-bedroom ranch. I have gone to the same accountant for 30 years in the same office building. I still don’t know which way to turn when I get out of the elevator. 5. Am I a better typist? I have written a slew of books, hundreds of newspaper articles and thousands of e-mails. I still have to look at the keys and I’d swear that the J keeps moving. Am I the only person who composes an entire e-mail and when I finally look up before hitting “send,” EVERYTHING IS IN CAPS? 6. Am I a better dancer? I have always done that gyrating thing where I snap my fingers and every once in a while I turn

around. I still can’t do that to the beat. I know I look absolutely ridiculous. The only reason people don’t laugh at me is that they are looking at their own feet and doing the exact same thing. 7. Am I better at fixing things? Nope. I still hire a handyman to fix everything. All that has changed is the price. I now pay $50.00 an hour. If I offer to help, it’s $60 an hour. Sometimes he’ll say, “Why do you want to help me? What have I ever done to you?” 8. Am I better at making friends? I’ve always had two or three close friends. That has never changed. The friends keep changing, however. That should tell you something. 9. (This one is none of your business.) 10. Am I a better writer? Not if you count this column.

Screened porch addition revolutionizes local home COMMENTARY By Larry Greene INITIAL SITUATION: This home in the Bayhill addition in Carmel included a nice wooded backyard with a simple paver patio. The homeowner wanted to add on a new screened porch so they could relax and enjoy the outdoors. DESIGN PHASE: An existing second-floor bedroom window prevented the new porch from being centered around the existing patio door in the kitchen. The project architect’s solution was to shift the porch over to the side and add a connecting portico roof supported by 6x6 cedar posts. This allowed a much steeper pitched hip roof that was much more pleasing and interesting to the eye. The porch roof was also extended beyond the edge of the home, which provided for a larger porch footprint and added architectural interest to the structure. The final element was the design of the surrounding hardscape and landscaping. PROJECT SCHEDULE: The design phase for the screened porch remodel included the creation of several proposed design schemes. These were presented to the client in 3D views on a large 65” monitor to help the homeowner visualize the new design schemes. The design phase lasted 4 weeks, while the construction phase spread out over approximately 8 weeks. FINAL PRODUCT: The new screened porch was set on concrete piers and included a stained cedar deck floor. The base of each column was widened and framed out and covered with a decorative thin stone veneer. The interior of the porch features maintenance-free materials, including James Hardie “hardi-panels” and “hardi-soffit” material to eliminate the need for future


After maintenance. The center ridge beam and decorative ceiling beams were also wrapped with hardi-soffit material. The exterior features aluminum screens, 6x6 cedar posts and custom cedar trim to add detail and scale to the porch. A large ceiling fan was added and electrical receptacles were installed in the 18” high knee wall. Finally, the adjacent area was finished with a bluestone patio, fire

pit and landscaping. Larry Greene is owner of Case Handyman & Remodeling. You may e-mail him at or call 846-2600. Visit for more information.
