A Wiggly Solution to Waste

By Jane VanOsdol

Unless you’re a fisherman, the subject of worms probably doesn’t cross your radar too frequently – except for the times you’re trying to avoid smooshing the little critters on your driveway after a rainstorm. Fishers resident Keith O’Dell sees worms, specifically red worms or red wigglers, in a different light. An engineer by trade and a composter by choice, O’Dell has formed a vermicomposting company called Castaway Compost. Vermicomposting uses red worms and microorganisms to convert organic waste into compost.

the vermicomposting for the missions is still a work in progress, O’Dell is spreading his message to a local audience. “It really is no muss, no fuss” he said. “You just put what you bought back into the soil.” O’Dell has partnered with Tim Saunders of As the Worm Turns ( to man a booth at the Fishers Farmers Market. Together they sell worm bins, worms, compost and compost tea. O’Dell sees this as being a process that is doable for everyone, a way to reduce the amount of waste being sent to landfills, while at the same time producing the rich vermicompost. “You’re adding microbes and substance to your soil versus the synthetic fertilizers, which are giving chemicals to your plants,” said O’Dell.

O’Dell has been composting for years, but stumbled onto vermicomposting in 2009. At that time O’Dell was researching ways to increase the productivity of farming land in Kenya and Honduras for two missionary friends; vermicomposting seemed perfect. Although implementing

tubes, phone books, or pizza boxes, and fill the bin. You can also add old leaves and a handful of sand.

• Tuck a handful of food underneath the bedding (to

prevent the bin from smelling) in one corner. Fruit and vegetable scraps, plant matter, coffee grounds and filters and tea bags (remove the staple) make good food. Avoid meat and dairy products and dog, cat and pig manure.

another handful of scraps in a different corner. “The rule of thumb is a pound of worms will eat about a half a pound of food and a half a pound of bedding a day,” said O’Dell. As the bin settles, the worms will begin to eat more. Add new bedding about one time a week. Worms will double in about 60 days. You should begin to use the compost in just a few weeks.

Riding Out the Summer By Keenan Hauke, Samex Capital

There is a decent chance that the last few months have left people feeling in the dark about what our government is doing, and also confused about the direction of the global economy. We’re lucky. We live in Indiana, which has the highest job growth rate of any state in America. We live in Hamilton County, which has one of the lowest unemployment rates of any county in the country.

don’t think the bond market is a safe place to be going forward. This is an opportunity to lock in some gains. In the stock market, where people have most of their retirement savings, the second quarter of 2010 was pretty vicious on the downside. But evidence suggests the worst is over, at least for the intermediate term. The next three to four months should bring some

up-trending prices, which will allow investors an opportunity to re-assess. Besides taking profits in the bond market and putting some of that money into stocks, there really isn’t a lot of action to take. Enjoy the rest of the summer, and we will get together in a month and see if a big opportunity presents itself.

But it sure feels like there is a storm out there somewhere, and we have to do more than hope it doesn’t hit our house or rock our long term planning. While I am sure you are doing everything you can to protect your career and keep your employment prospects alive, there are a lot of forces that might seem out of your control. Financial contingency plans, such as having enough saved to cover months of living, are one thing. It is a lot different when it comes to the real estate market or the value of your retirement plan. There is good news on a few fronts, and in some areas the news is simply less bad than it was. Real estate doesn’t look like it is going to go up anytime soon, but I don’t think we are going to see any more 15-20% annual drops, either.

Indiana Transportation Museum ( Noblesville, Indiana

Yes, these are the folks with the Fair Train that runs between Fishers and the Indiana State Fairgrounds in August. But there’s more – a lot more. You’ll find a small museum with big train equipment in Noblesville’s Forest Park on Ind. 19. The best times, however, put the museum on the road. Make that tracks. Several themed routes give passengers the opportunity to ride the rails so they can enjoy both the journey and the destination. The young ones, often on a train for the very first time, are particularly excited about the ride from Noblesville to Tipton for a pizza dinner. This year, additional Tipton restaurants are among the dining choices. Children board the Fair Train at Noblesville’s Indiana Transportation Museum.

Dinner or a Movie, again to Tipton, offers the choice of dinner or a kid-friendly movie at the historic Diana Theatre. Then there’s dinner on the move, locomotive-style. White linen, heavy silver, china, and fresh flowers are part of a four-course gourmet dinner in an air-conditioned 1930s dining car. The Hamiltonian, which leaves from the train station in Fishers and takes guests to restaurants in Noblesville, serves hors d’oeuvres enroute. While children are welcome, this excursion is typically viewed as a special treat for the grown-ups.


Metamora, Indiana (

Here, at the Whitewater Canal State Historic Site, transportation combines two old means – aquatic and equine. Two huge American Belgian draft horses clipclop their way along a towpath, literally providing two horsepower, as they silently pull the Ben Franklin III along the canal waters.

September features Atlanta’s Earthfest train, in October the Pumpkin Train, and in December the Polar Bear Express – plenty of reasons to ride the rails, and no parking hassles at the destination. Then, for a look at life pre-railroad, check out…

When they reach the Duck Creek Aqueduct, the drivers unhitch the tow rope from the horses and walk them over a vehicular bridge while the canal boat continues effortlessly through the aqueduct on its own momentum. When the Franklin clears the structure, the horses are again hitched up for the rest of the journey. The 1846 aqueduct, with its covered bridge, is the last operating wooden aqueduct in the United States. As an aqueduct, it carries water over water, much like a bridge carries vehicles over a river. This one carries the Whitewater Canal 16 feet over Duck Creek in the tiny village of Metamora. As a state historic site, the aqueduct offers visitors canal boat rides much like those of the mid-1800s. “The canal era was certainly a colorful era,” says Jim Hamill, DNR cultural administrator. “Even though it lasted only 15 to 20 years. Its demise was brought about by the railroad. The train could go 25 mph, the canal boat only

Elwood Haynes Museum and the Automotive Heritage Museum ( Kokomo, Indiana

Indiana’s rich automobile history finds inventors and museums in a number of Hoosier cities, but it was in Kokomo where Elwood Haynes successfully created the nation’s first automobile. Mechanically inclined and with a degree in chemistry, Haynes had discovered how to dry natural gas by refrigeration to prevent pipeline freezing. The process evaporated the water but left a waste product – gasoline. He was determined to find a way to use that waste product to power a new mode of transportation, so he moved to Kokomo and its huge natural gas find. In 1893, Haynes hired brothers Elmer and Edgar Apperson to build a transportation contraption to his specifications. A year later he made the first trial run in his new automobile, the Pioneer – and became the father of the U.S. auto industry with the country’s first commercially successful gasoline-powered automobile. In 1898, the Haynes-Apperson Automobile Company opened in Kokomo. It was Indiana’s first automotive plant. Haynes’ very first car is in the Smithsonian in Washington, D.C. A replica is in the Automotive Heritage Museum in

National Model Aviation Museum/Academy of Model Aeronautics ( Muncie, Indiana

Here, it’s flying on a miniature scale with the AMA, in Muncie since 1992. The world’s largest sport aviation organization, it exists to promote model aviation as a recognized sport and worthwhile recreation activity. “A lot of people who join are former pilots, either military or commercial, who have a feel for airplanes,” says Muncie journalist Ruth Chin. “Many of the planes are very elegant; they spend thousands of dollars on these things.”

The AMA’s 1,500 acres of flying fields at the headquarters site are busy during the warm months with some form of flying exhibition or competition scheduled just about every weekend. Visitors are invited to watch, free. Connected to the headquarters building is the National Model Aviation Museum, with the country’s largest collection of model aircraft. The museum includes designers, engineers and builders. And the stars themselves, the model planes with names like Big Guff, Cougar and Tiger Shark, are hanging everywhere.

It isn’t long before land is out of sight on the 60-mile crossing, so there’s the feel of an ocean voyage.

Movies, typically for the younger set, are also popular aboard the Lake Express. The coal-driven Badger, with her famous red smokestack, was built in 1952 for the Chesapeake & Ohio Railway and made her maiden voyage in March of 1953. The largest car ferry ever to sail the Great Lakes, she’s 410 feet long, close to 60 feet wide and seven stories tall. She was designed to carry railroad cars and just a limited number of passengers, but she ferried her last railroad car in 1990 and now carries up to 620 passengers and 180 vehicles that include tour buses, RVs and semis. Her average speed is 18 mph; her crossing time is four hours. The Lake Express is newer, having made her maiden voyage in 2004. The high-speed catamaran is smaller than the Badger – 192 feet long and 57 feet wide. She can carry 250 passengers and 49 passenger vehicles between Muskegon and Milwaukee. She can travel up to 40 mph; her crossing time is two-and-a-half hours. Vehicles are driven aboard the Badger by ferry personnel; they are not available to passengers during the cruise.

King of Glory Lutheran Church By Jonathan Haag

King of Glory Lutheran Church, located at 106th Street and Keystone, is a vibrant community of believers living out their faith in the community of Carmel and beyond. I recently had the opportunity to sit down with Pastor Paul Swartz to talk about the mission, the heartbeat, and future of King of Glory. Pastor Swartz says that the mission of King of Glory is to be “The heart, hands, and voice of Christ.” King of Glory does not simply set up programs and expect people to walk into their doors. Pastor Swartz tells me that they equip the people of King of Glory to go out and “be the church.” In terms of being the church, members of King of Glory have gone out into the community on Mother’s Day and passed out roses to moms. Other members have gone out to the Monon Trail and given out water to thirsty runners and cyclists. These are just a couple of the countless stories of members of King of Glory impacting our community. The heartbeat of King of Glory is to serve the community and to show the love of God to everyone with whom they come in contact. Members of King of Glory understand that they are the hands and feet of Christ and that the church is not a building that people come to on Sunday mornings, but that the church is the people. When you step through the doors of King of Glory you get the sense from everyone that they love God and they love people. Pastor Swartz summed up the heartbeat of King of Glory when he told me his heart is to share with everyone that “God loves you so much. Nothing that you do or have done can separate you from that love.” The future of King of Glory is to be a “front porch” to Hamilton County. Pastor Swartz tells me that they hope to

accomplish this in several different ways. The church is located at the new 106th Street roundabout over Keystone, which provides a large amount of traffic and visibility. At some point, they hope to create an actual front porch where walkers and cyclists can relax as they walk and ride around Carmel. Pastor Swartz emphasized to me that they Pastor Paul Swartz of King are going to continue to of Glory Lutheran Church. live out their faith in the community and serve their neighbors.

King of Glory has several worship times: Casual Worship service is at 5:01 p.m. on Saturday evenings. King of Glory touts this service as a “come as you are, casual fit gathering with music, a message and Holy Communion.” Classic Worship service is at 8:00 a.m. on Sunday mornings. This service is described as “worship focusing on participation through the liturgy, hymns and corporate confession of our faith.” Praise Worship service is at 9:30 a.m. on Sunday mornings. This service “incorporates popular praise music in a less formal setting than our other two services and includes scripture readings, a message from the pastor and Holy Communion.” Contemporary Worship service is at 11:00 a.m. on Sunday mornings. King of Glory describes this service as “worship focusing on participation through the liturgy, hymns and corporate confession of our faith.” King of Glory invites you to visit them at 2201 E. 106th Street, Carmel or online at

The city of Carmel continues to evolve into a world-class city, celebrating new exhibitions and partaking in new experiences. On Saturday, June 11, 2011, Carmel will host the USA Track and Field (USATF) Carmel Marathon Championship Weekend.


he USATF is an Indianapolis based organization, charged with keeping the rules and records for all the United States track and field competitors and events. This national governing body is for the sports of track and field, cross country running, road running and racewalking. The USATF is a non-profit organization that has nearly 100,000 members. President Stephanie Hightower and CEO/Executive Director Doug Logan are at the helm of the organization. USATF is responsible for an array of track and field events for youth programs, masters (age 40+) competition, the National Track and Field Hall of Fame, coaching education, sports science, athletic development, and annual meetings. The Carmel Marathon Championship Weekend encompasses a series of races, which include a 26.2-mile marathon, a 13.1 mile-half marathon, a one-mile family fitness walk, and an 8K event that has attracted hundreds of runners from across nation, competing for a sizeable prize purse. This is one of many national races where runners will acquire points, leading them towards a possible run in the 2012 Olympics in London, England. The racing events will be in close proximity to Carmel’s new Performing Arts Center, which is set to have opening festivities during the week of January 22-30, 2011. The Center will boast a state-of-theart, acoustically perfect 1,600-seat concert hall; which has been dubbed The Palladium, a 500-seat proscenium theater, and a 200seat studio theater. “This event will provide a chance to showcase our City,” said Carmel Mayor Jim Brainard. “The race routes have been strategically planned around The Center for the Performing Arts. This highlights that our development, particularly The Palladium,

AU G U S T 2010

is not just a musical destination, but a notable landmark of interest.” Race participants will be able to admire Carmel’s features as they race through the heart of the City.


This national championship track and field event has traveled across the country spanning from Georgia, Minnesota, to areas in the West Coast, as well as the acclaimed Central Park in New York City. “All of our hard work is paying off by being awarded the opportunity to host this national marathon,” said William Knox, director for Hamilton County Sports Authority. “I am truly excited because this championship marathon will bring national exposure and positives for the city of Carmel.” What makes this year’s competition unique and unlike any other track and field event hosted by USATF, is that the race will now take place in the organization’s home state – Indiana.




“This event will provide a chance to showcase our City. The race routes have been strategically planned around The Center for the Performing Arts. This highlights that our development, particularly The Palladium, is not just a musical destination, but a notable landmark of interest.” – JIM BRAINARD, Mayor of Carmel


The Carmel Road Racing Group as well as other civic and community organizations has played an integral role in the promotion and execution for this event. Todd Oliver, president of Carmel Road Racing Group, has laid the groundwork for the initial planning of this major event. “This is truly an exciting moment in the history of Carmel,” said Todd Oliver. “We are already receiving out-of-state runners registering for the race, and we are 11 months away from the marathon!” The series of races encompassed within the marathon will be a welcomed addition to several other events that are attracting world-class runners into the greater Indianapolis area. The OneAmerica 500 Festival Mini-Marathon, the Indianapolis Marathon and Half Marathon, along with the Geist Half Marathon, have showcased distance runners and created a large impact in Indianapolis. With the addition of the Carmel Marathon Championship Weekend, Indiana will continue to shine as a hub for competitive running. Some may wonder about the significance of this event. This event will generate a positive

economic impact on Hamilton County because of the efforts put forth by James Brainard, the mayor of Carmel, Carmel’s City Council, the Hamilton County Sports Authority, along with several other stakeholders. “This will place Carmel on the national sports map,” said Kevin Rider, Carmel City Council-at-Large member. “A big thank you goes out to the USA Track and Field organization. We are glad to be partnering with them because they are a huge organization within the sports realm.” Having this event will support the continued growth to the Indianapolis economy. Specifically for Carmel, this event would generate residual financial benefits to new and existing businesses, further boost a spirit of civic pride, as well as continue to establish solidarity with the United States marathon community. “This is a big deal for Carmel,” said Marty Day, co-owner of the Runners Forum. “The city of Indianapolis is the stage for many major sporting events such the NCAA Championships, Indianapolis 500 and the upcoming 2012 Super Bowl. Carmel has a very active running community, and this event will further draw attention to the diversity and competitiveness of Carmel with other key cities throughout the nation.” The racing events will begin and end on City Center Drive. Doug Logan, CEO of USATF believes it is important to take and highlight this sport within the breath of this country. “This upcoming event is in the heartland, middle America! This marathon has traveled all throughout the United States and now for the championship race to be where this organization is headquartered –is truly rewarding.” With anticipated numbers reaching well over 7,000 people for all four events, Carmel is sure to leave a strong and favorable “track and field” footprint on this marathon for years to come.

Recipe: Roasted Sweet Potato Coins By Janet Striebel

Roasted Sweet Potato Coins

Sweet potatoes represent an excellent choice for a side dish to any of your favorite entrees. These naturally sweet tasting vegetables are high in beta-carotene, vitamin C, potassium, antioxidants and fiber.

INGREDIENTS: 4 large sweet potatoes

According to nutritionists at the Center for Science in the Public Interest (CSPI), the sweet potato ranks number one in nutrition among all vegetables. The sweet potato outscored the second place vegetable by 101 points. Yes that’s right, a baked potato ranks second with a score of 83, followed by spinach with a score of 76. (These points are derived according to content of dietary fiber, naturally occurring sugars and complex carbohydrates, protein, vitamins A and C, iron, and calcium.)

½ cup olive oil

Besides being helpful for stomach ulcers and inflamed conditions of the colon, sweet potatoes are also beneficial for diabetics, as they help stabilize blood sugar levels. Sweet potatoes digest slowly, causing a gradual rise in blood sugar so you feel fuller for a longer period of time. Certainly, sweet potatoes deserve recognition all year long — not just around the holidays!

CarmelFest Committee Extends Heartfelt Thanks By Gary Frey

The sirens have stopped, the fireworks have ended, and the bands and orchestras have stopped playing, but the positive energy of this year’s CarmelFest and its impact on our community will last for months to come. I want to thank the citizens of Carmel, Westfield, Noblesville, and our neighbors in Indianapolis for attending the parade, fireworks and festival in record numbers, reinforcing once again that it is the best festival of its kind in Indiana. My committee and I spend thousands of collective hours each year to make sure that it is awell run event, and the reward for our hard work was to see all of you respond by attending. To all of the volunteers who came and endured the heat, all I can say is ‘Thank You’ from the bottom of my heart. Your contribution to this great event was invaluable. Each year, as we grow in scope and venues we struggle to fulfill all of our volunteer needs. Yet this year, we had numerous people volunteer for specific times and jobs, and then stick around and do even more after their shifts ended. One young woman spent literally hours at CarmelFest this year. She was recently divorced, recently lost her job, and didn’t even live in Carmel. But she wanted to be a part of something bigger than herself. So, she gave willingly to our community by serving all of us at CarmelFest. Others recognize that this is the largest community gathering each year in all of Carmel, and want to be a part of its dynamic. One young couple were married at the top of the fountain during CarmelFest by Carmel City Judge Brian Poindexter. CarmelFest will forever be a part of their life. There is a spirit of community that is growing here in Carmel. We are a unique city that has literally reinvented itself in the last few years. CarmelFest, the Carmel International Arts Festival, The Center for the Performing Arts and other events and venues are helping to build something in which the citizens of Carmel become closer in all that we have in common. On behalf of all the members of the CarmelFest Committee and the members of the Rotary Club of Carmel, and on behalf of all our wonderful sponsors, thank you all for coming together with us. We do it all for you.

Gary Frey, Chairman CarmelFest 2010

Time flies when you are having fun! Or, maybe you are like some who have been counting down the days until the school bell rings again. Regardless of your perspective, school will be back in session soon. Are you ready? Are your kids? Either way, it’s time to prepare our children, as well as ourselves, to go back to school. Here are a few hints to conquer the back to school blues. One of the major hurdles I hear from parents about getting kids back into school mode, is getting them back to the right sleep schedule. “It is important to get your kids back on a schedule about a week before school begins,” explains Karen Killan, a Carmel resident, mother of two and teacher of over 20 years. “That is the hardest part as a parent and a teacher, reinforcing those curfews and setting those alarm clocks.” So don’t wait too long – start now. It can’t hurt to start getting everyone to bed early and, in turn, practice getting up early. This may even include you. Does this really work? Who knows, but it doesn’t hurt to try. Although, if you have teenagers, you may just want to skip this and move on since they will likely just roll their eyes and go back to texting their friends when you call for bed at 9 p.m. Next up, school supplies. Once you get your (dreaded) supply list from your school, it’s off to the local discount store to find the best deals. There are several options, but it is easiest to look to major competitors such as Wal-Mart, Target and Meijer. My opinion is that Wal-Mart has the best deals; Target has a more stylish selection; and Meijer has both deals and selection. You really can’t go wrong at any of these trusted stores. Killan also informed me that Office Max, Office Depot and some of the other stores, such as Target, may possibly carry the Carmel Clay Schools supply list. “The list is usually right by the school supplies,” said Killan. “It is very convenient.” If you want cute, reasonably priced, personalized backpacks, LLBean or Land’s End are great online options. They are durable and cute as pie. And both offer standard sizes as well as junior sizes for the smaller kiddos. AU G U S T 2010

But let’s be honest, the most important task (and most blissful according to our kids) is new school clothes. Unfortunately, this is also the most costly of all our school preparations, and likely the most stressful if you have teens or high maintenance five-year-old little girls like mine. It’s also difficult to keep up with our children’s growth spurts, forcing us to buy new each year. Did you know that after children reach two years old, they grow on average 2.5 inches per year until adolescence? This makes for fun times to be had each year – wreaking havoc on our pocketbooks.

My favor ite LLBean backpack. All my neig hbors have them!

Nonetheless, a few local places that may offer reasonable solutions for your children’s clothing needs are Kohl’s Department Store, Old Navy, Children’s Place, Gymboree, Justice and Limited Too. When it comes to teenage clothing, The Gap, Abercrombie and Fitch, Aeropostale, Hollister and American Eagle are time tested options and make the top of the list. For those who like the one stop shop, don’t forget about those big box department stores like JCPenney, Macy’s, Nordstrom and Sears. Some great deals can be found for every member of your family. Though this time of year can be stressful, you are not alone 23

out there. According to the National Retail Federation (NRF), “Consumers plan to increase spending by 16% to a total of $55.12 billion, the biggest amount since at least 2003, for combined back to school shopping for college students and school-age children in kindergarten through grade 12.” That is a lot of loot, folks. What’s the reason for this? The Commerce Department data showed that personal income and wages were up this year.

al of W y Princip tar Elemen

If new clothes are not in your budget, don’t worry. One great local option is Once Upon a Child, which is a child’s consignment store that sells gently used clothing at great prices. You can find name brand clothing for the fraction of the price. With locations in Carmel and Fishers, you are not far from a bargain. You may be asking yourself – how does a mom of a fiveyear-old and three-year-old have a clue what to expect. I don’t. That’s why I asked experts like Tiffany and Brooks Vossler of Carmel, who have mastered the art of school preparation with their three children. Their youngest son, Grant, is in elementary school. Their middle son, Hayden, is in middle school and their daughter, Karlie, will be a senior in high school. Three different schools. Two different genders. They certainly have their hands full, but make it through every year.

until I spoke to Woodbrook Principal Kelly Davis. “A few weeks before school starts you should start reading with your kids. Encourage reading every day, and be positive about school starting.” Davis also agreed with Killan that kids are out of their routine in the summer, and getting them back on track is challenging. Davis also has a daughter, Darcy, who will be entering kindergarten at Woodbrook. “She is really excited about going to school.” Davis explained that she has been preparing Darcy by talking about school often, helping her anticipate new friends and being respectful to the teachers. With Davis and I both having kindergarteners, we agreed that we are probably more nervous than our kids.

So what’s their secret? “I try and take each of my kids out on a one-on-one date,” explains Tiffany. “We go to lunch and buy one special outfit for school. My mom used to do that when I was in school. I enjoy continuing the tradition with my family.” Tiffany went on to say that having a child at Woodbrook Elementary is easy because you can purchase the PTO’s school supply packets that have all the necessary supplies. “I’m all about convenience.” The middle school and high school, however, are a bit more difficult and the list is more extensive and expensive. “There are yearbook fees, book rental fees, spirit wear and gym uniform purchases, PTO fees, lunch fees… the list seems to go on and on.” Tiffany offers one piece of advice: “Once you get your paperwork, fill it out immediately, and then you’ll be all ready to go at registration.”

Principal Davis has also been preparing her school for opening day. “The beginning of school and the end of school are our busiest times,” said Davis. “As a principal, we work on staffing and new hires, as well as day-to-day operations and building schedules.” Davis said her main focus is on school goals – such as literacy and math data. Finally, if you want to ask the experts – the teacher themselves – most Carmel elementary schools have a parent orientation night as well as kindergarten orientations for those students enrolling for the first time. All three middle schools and the one and only Carmel High School, have individual class orientations for both returning and new students. Visit for information on each school in the Carmel Clay School district.

Once you get the shopping out of the way, don’t forget the truly most important thing, your children’s health. Make sure all your child’s immunizations are up to date. If you don’t know what you need, all medical forms can be found at, along with a plethora of other back to school information.

Keep these little helpful hints in mind and don’t fret. In a few short weeks, it will all be over and you will be able to relax. Yeah, right.

But honestly, I had totally forgotten about the most essential back to school preparations
