William Kinzer’s early 19th century clothing on display at the Carmel Clay Historical Society

1850 Kinzer family home (Kinzer 1828 log cabin not shown)

A Look at Life in Early 19th Century Carmel

| Ann Craig-Cinnamon How old would you say the oldest piece of clothing in your closet is? Ten years? Twenty years? How about 200 years? The Carmel Clay Historical Society actually has in its collection clothes that date back as much as 200 years, and they are in remarkably good shape! They may not be stylish, but they certainly give us a glimpse into what people wore around Carmel back in the early to mid 1800s. The clothing belonged to William Kinzer who was one of seven children born to John Kinzer and his wife, Mary Moffitt Wilkinson. The Kinzers were a founding family of Carmel, coming from Pennsylvania in 1828 to then Delaware Township. They built a log cabin on their 160 acres around Cool Creek shortly thereafter, and then built a big white house next to it around 1850 to accommodate their growing family. Both houses still stand on what is now Main Street east of Keystone. William was born in 1832 and took over part of the family farm when his father died. By 1880, William owned nearly 300 acres of land on either side

of Main Street. His brothers owned even more acreage surrounding him. William lived there until he died in 1914, and his children continued to own the property for decades. In fact, a number of his grandchildren were born in the white home and he has great grandchildren who still live in the community. His family has preserved a number of his things including some of his clothes that were made from materials grown on his farm. They are exhibited at the Carmel Clay Historical Society and are, according to Gaby Kienitz, the head of conservation at the Indiana State Museum, one of the finest textile collections in the state. She says especially a jacket, shirt, and trousers which date to the early 1800s are truly incredible, “Men’s clothing, pre 1850s, is generally not well represented in most museums that collect historic clothing, especially in the Midwest. The jacket and trousers are handwoven linen, and it seems very likely that the flax was probably grown on Kinzer’s farm, woven on a loom, and sewn by hand, all in the Carmel area,” she says. Katherine Dill, the executive director of the Carmel Clay Historical Society, says it is remarkable that the clothing survived because usually they were worn so much that they just simply wore out and then were used for rags. William Kinzer is also significant in Carmel history because he kept journals that have been passed down by his descendants. “He kept a journal every day from 1858 to 1911. He wrote in them every single day. So he talks about weather, he talks about crops, he talks about the President getting shot. Sometimes they are long, and sometimes they are short. For a lot of Carmel, it is the only record that we have of history because early newspapers weren’t kept,” says Katherine. His journals also provide insight into the man as they tell about his frustrations in finding a wife, his ongoing lamenting about courtship,

and his matter-of-fact attitude about the birth and death of a child. In honor of these personal diaries the CCHS will be holding a program called W(h)ine and Woe: The Diaries of William Kinzer on June 9. It’ll be your chance to compare the courtship practices of the 19th Century with today’s. There will also be an interpreter who will portray Kinzer.

The program will take place at 7 p.m. at the historic Daubenspeck home at 9750 Towne Road. Parking will be at College Park Church at 2606 West 96th Street with a free shuttle to the program. People are encouraged to bring folding chairs, wine, cheese, and other lite fare. Cost is $5 per person. You can check out Kinzer’s clothing on display at the Historical Society at 211 First Street, SW.

A Conversation with Pete & Alice Dye | John Cinnamon Any list of the best golf courses in America always includes courses like Harbour Town at Hilton Head and the Ocean Course at Kiawah Island (both in South Carolina), TPC Sawgrass in Florida, and Whistling Straits in Wisconsin. What all of these worldclass golf courses have in common is their designer, World Golf Hall of Fame course architect and part-time Carmel resident, Pete Dye. Long before he built any of those other courses, he created his first real masterpiece right here in Carmel with Crooked Stick Golf Club. And although it’s Pete that usually gets the headlines and accolades (or, at times, the criticisms), many of his more famous designs have been a collaboration with his wife, Alice. “It was a partnership from the very beginning,” Alice explains about her and Pete’s design process and division of labor. “We laid out the holes and we talked about it together. We had a dining room table and we’d cut strips of paper and laid them out on the map and talked about the best arrangement.” In fact, it was Alice’s idea to make the green at the par 3 17th hole at TPC Sawgrass an “island,” creating one of the most iconic golf holes in the world. Alice brings a

Pete Dye (with Gov. Mitch Daniels) at the announcement of the Pete Dye Golf Trail in 2011. wealth of golf knowledge to the partnership by way of being a highly-accomplished amateur golfer, who has won multiple Indiana titles. Her contribution to the process didn’t stop at the dining room table, though. In a photograph hanging in the Indiana Golf Association offices in Franklin, Alice is seen – circa 1960 – at the controls of a bulldozer moving dirt to create their first course, El Dorado Country Club in Greenwood, Indiana (a course now known as Dye’s Walk). After El Dorado, Pete and Alice designed another 10 or so courses before they tackled Crooked Stick. But “the Stick” was the first in which they had a hand in every aspect of the development. They found the land, raised the money to buy it, designed the layout, and completed the construction. Perhaps that’s the reason the Dyes still maintain a residence along Crooked Stick’s 18th fairway. In addition to Crooked Stick, Indiana features another two dozen Dye designs, giving the state the highest concentration of Pete Dye courses in America. Seven of those courses comprise the Pete Dye Golf Trail. Designed to promote golf and vacation tourism in Indiana, the trail makes a stop at another Carmel layout, Plum Creek Golf Club, near 146th Street and Hazel Dell Parkway. Through hundreds of courses and literally thousands of holes, the Dyes still trace their beginnings to Central Indiana. The very first hole Pete designed is what is now the 10th hole at Dye’s Walk in Greenwood. The tee sits next to a small cemetery. Asked today if starting a golf course right next to a burial ground gave him pause, Pete Dye responds, “I’ve built more golf courses around cemeteries – I think they haunt me.”

Alice Dye moving dirt, circa 1960.

The Garrisons: Lawyers, Brothers & Friends | J. Andy Murphy

reg and Chris Garrison have many things in common. As brothers, they enjoy life with varied interests, but the bond of practicing law is the cement that has made their law firm so successful. The Garrison Law Firm brings together professionals with more than 100 years of experience in several important areas of law.

G

In their private lives, the brothers really do share a wonderful sense of humor and strong interests in history, horses, sports, reading, and spending time together as a family. It is obvious they enjoy their time together and support each other in their individual areas of legal expertise.

The Brothers …

Greg Garrison, the attorney, is indeed an experienced litigator (on both sides of the courtroom) and has prosecuted a number of high-profile criminal cases. Currently, his practice is concentrated on personal injury law, business and commercial trial work, and general litigation. It goes without saying he is also a highly recognized, long-time radio talk show host with WIBC and because of this high public profile, we sometimes forget he is a very busy and engaged successful attorney as well. In his personal time, when he is not riding and caring for his beloved horses, Greg is a well-known published author who has written several books in his spare time.

Chris Garrison concentrates his law practice in the area of personal injury claims from accidents, defective products, dangerous property conditions (slip and falls), animal attacks, poisonings, and employment injuries caused by someone other than the employer or co-worker. His interest in this particular area of law stems from his father who was in medicine and his own personal involvement of seeing what happens to individuals or families who suffered serious injury or death because of an accident or incident they didn’t cause. In his personal life, Chris enjoys being with his family, reading, and when there is time, hiking, walking, and sports.

gaining confidence by

losing inches | Beth Taylor As swimsuits gain prime retail space once again, thoughts turn to warmer weather. If you’ve kept your New Year’s resolution to work out but aren’t seeing the results you’d like, consider looking into the latest non-invasive targeted weight-reduction methods. The latest procedures make losing the love handles without pain possible. The SimplySkin Med Spa offers CoolSculpting, a revolutionary non-surgical body contouring treatment that delivers results. A certified CoolSculpting esthetician uses cooling plates to freeze and crystallize fat cells. Your body permanently eliminates the fat cells. “Clients can achieve a pants-size loss and are excited to get their closets back,” said Amanda Voss, office manager at SimplySkin Med Spa. Unlike surgical methods, CoolSculpting achieves results without pain or downtime. During the procedure, clients

feel an initial cold sensation that soon dissipates. The ideal candidate for this procedure maintains a healthy weight but struggles with stubborn bulges that can’t be eliminated through diet and exercise. Most clients can expect to see results within a couple weeks. “Clients get a wow month about 2 months after the initial procedure,” Voss said. An on-staff doctor determines if a patient is a candidate for CoolSculpting. In addition to CoolSculpting, the state-of-the-art Medical Spa provides Liposonix, another targeted fat-reduction treatment. This treatment option uses high-intensity ultrasound to heat and permanently destroy targeted fat cells. Skin and tissue are unharmed. Liposonix can be used on the love handles and waistline as well as on small or curved areas. “Liposonix is really energy sculpting,” said Dr. Marcus Jiminez. “We use it to target smaller areas, often working its use into an overall aesthetic treatment plan with other options.”

Liposonix treatments cause minimal discomfort, and patients experience little to no downtime after the treatment. “We see excellent results with this procedure, and it usually takes only one time,” he said. Patients can expect to see a result 8 to 10 weeks after the Liposonix treatment, and the average reduction is around an inch (or pant size) from the waistline.

Losing inches while gaining definition and strength has never been so easy.

Steppenwolf 1969 “Born to be Wild” My husband and I are now “empty nesters” with a child who lives not only out of town but several states away, so Mother’s Day and Father’s Day are relatively quiet days. While some couples balk at planning a celebration for someone who is “not MY parent,” I think it’s a sweet way to celebrate what a great job we did raising our kid. He is a terrific father and he made me a better parent! So this year, I’m planning a little road trip picnic to show him how much I appreciate the great job he continues to do. Carmel Clay Parks has some beautiful parks right in our back yard. You can pick one that is close to you or “shop around” for a new one on their website, CarmelClayParks. com. There, you will see maps and a guide with services available. This year, I knew I wanted something close to the river or at least a pond feature and a grill. I thought a grill would be fun because we haven’t cooked on charcoal for so long. So my first stop was into White’s Ace Hardware (731 South Rangeline Road) to pick up a small bag of briquettes (5lbs/$7.99) and a chimney charcoal starter ($16.99). I don’t want to use charcoal lighter fluid, so I know I need to bring something that will entertain us while we wait for the coals to develop. I may throw in a deck of cards, but I think an old fashioned horseshoe game or croquet set will be fun. I have no hand/eye coordination, so I never play tennis with him, but I might be able to handle a badminton game. With just the two of us, we won’t need a net – or scorekeeper! The picnic isn’t just about the food. If you have a friend

with an old - 4 large potatoes restored car—get - 4 celery ribs, diced them to drive! - 1 small onion, minced If not, plan a - 4 hard-boiled eggs - 1 cup mayo stop by Ooley & - ½-1 cup of a neutral oil (like canola) Blackburn (508 - ½ lemon, zested West Carmel - salt Drive) to do - paprika a little “guyWash and peel potatoes. Place in a large pan and cover with style window COLD water. Bring to a boil and keep at a high simmer until shopping.” They potatoes are cooked all the way through (probably 35-40 always have minutes). When you “stab” the potato with a steak knife, if it falls off as you lift it up, then it is done. Drain thoroughly such a unique in colander and chill for at least 30 minutes. Prep onions inventory; and and celery and dice 3 of the eggs, leaving one egg to slice since they’re not on top, if desired. Salt the potatoes, smash half of them open on Sundays, with a potato masher and chop the other half. Toss in the you don’t feel diced celery and onion. In a medium bowl, add the oil to the mayo ¼ cup at a time and whisk. It will look like the mayo is like you are separating – be brave! – this is for your man! Keep whisking wasting any of the until shiny again and repeat. You want a thin consistency. salesmen’s time. Add lemon zest and pour over your potato mixture. Chill Either way, toss overnight. Add egg slices and paprika, if desired. an old blanket in the trunk and dust off that old “retro” cooler to hold some drinks. We lucked out and got to “test drive” a ’58 Chrysler New Yorker (there were only 600 built and it’s one of only 16 known to exist!). They are moving soon to 96th and Keystone and will soon have a new Mazerati dealership in addition to their vintage cars! But onto the food…

Smashed Potato Salad

Lori Goldsby

The secret to this potato salad is that the potatoes are COMPLETELY COOKED! The second secret is oil to thin out the mayo and a little lemon zest to provide “brightness” in the mayo.

Most picnics consist of a meat, a salad and a dessert, and some cold, frosty beverages. If you are waiting for the coals to get hot, you will probably get hungry waiting. So think about a brat, a burger, or a boneless piece of chicken (bone-in takes longer to cook through) that will cook quickly and easily. My Smashed Potato Salad is a crowd favorite and goes with all types of proteins. Add a nice tray of brownies that you refrigerate overnight(to help keep from melting!) and you are set! Don’t forget a lighter and some tongs! Lori Goldsby, a Hamilton County resident, can often be found exploring the local foodie scene when she’s not catering small parties or hosting cooking parties.

| Ray Compton It may be a stretch to proclaim this 65-year-old as the greatest blues singer to ever be housed in Chicago who has produced his guitar riffs and licks on legendary Maxwell Street. After all, a potential Chicago-based Blues Hall of Fame could include a list of soulful performers such as Muddy Waters, Little Walter, Howlin’ Wolf, Willie Dixon, Buddy Guy, Hound Dog Taylor, Snooky Pryor, Big Walter Horton, Kokomo Arnold, and Mose Allison. But when it comes to declaring someone as the greatest blues player to call Carmel his home stage, there has never been a bigger or better Bluesman than this bearded Hoosier who still giddily remembers the day 50 years ago when he watched Waters rehearse through a screen door at a neighborhood Chicago bar. Carmel, say hello to your neighbor: Duke Tumatoe. Indeed, this is that Duke Tumatoe, who has been wailing about the successes and failures of the Indianapolis Colts for nearly 30 years with his blues-based Lord Help Our Colts songs on the Bob and Tom Show. And this is the same Duke Tumatoe who religiously has transferred his musical roots from the southside of Chicago to his suburban home on Haverstick Drive.

“Music has transcended everything for me,” said Tumatoe from his working area in his home. “It is a very heart-warming profession. There are positive and negative aspects. But every day that you play music, you learn something new. It’s a blessing to play music.” Duke and his 30-year-old Hoosier-based band, Duke Tumatoe and the Power Trio, have had plenty of those days to play music. He estimates that the band has played over 10,000 concerts, “give or take 500.” The foursome still regularly rents a vehicle and hits the highways for over 100 annual performances that stretch across the Midwest to Nebraska, Minnesota, Iowa, Missouri, Michigan, and Ohio. And he frequently returns to the home stages of Chicago. It was on the southside of Chicago where Duke grew up with his parents, each a second-generation immigrant from Italy (okay, did you really believe his last name was Tumatoe?). His father, a World War II Marine in the Pacific War, owned a liquor store and his mother was a buyer for a Chicago department store. “My father was the best man I’ve ever known,” recalled son. “He had integrity and he had principle.” However, the father had little understanding of music. He did support his son when he started taking drum lessons at the age of 10, but “didn’t really understand the music.”

TEN QUESTIONS FOR CARMEL RESIDENT & BLUES SINGER DUKE TUMATOE 1. Your dad’s father came from Italy and was a Pennsylvania coal miner. Did he still speak Italian when you knew him? - “He only knew one English word – bull——.” 2. Did you ever play sports? “I played football in high school (Morgan Park in Chicago). I was a defensive tackle. Let’s say I wasn’t great.” 3. When was the last time you went to a concert and bought a ticket? “I saw ZZ Top in the ‘90s at Market Square Arena. Good show.” 4. Many people say that if they could attend one concert, it would have been to a Beatles reunion concert when all four members were still alive. What concert would you attend? “I would go see Muddy Waters (who died in 1983) again. Not only was he the best blues player, but he was the nicest man I ever met. He never criticized another musician. Muddy moved me.” 5. Sometimes concert halls can become a hostile environment as the night goes on. What were the scariest moments you have had during your career? “While at the University of Illinois, one of our bands played in Jacksonville (Illinois). One of the bands before us got into it with the crowd and you could feel the energy change in the building. There were some angry young kids who wanted to beat up the hippies from Champaign. We needed a police escort out of town. “There was also another time when I was playing with a summer band called the Orphans. We were in East Chicago ,and it got rough. I got coldcocked by somebody.” 6. What are the best songs that you’ve scripted? “Blues and a Feeling has survived the test of time. Two of my other favorites are Fire and Ice and What I Really Like to Do.” 7. What about Tie You Up? “It’s a tongue and cheek party song. It’s fun to play, and people have fun with it. They like to sing along.” 8. What do your three grandkids (ages 8, 6, and 4) call you? “Grandpa Duke.” 9. There are two Bibles at your work station in your office. Are you a spiritual person? “I am a very spiritual person. I have been blessed to do what I do. God grants to us the talent to do what we can do. I want to display God’s goodness.” 10. How much longer do you plan to play the blues and perform in concert? “Until they box me up.” 22

The music started as a typical 1960s “garage band,” except Duke and friends played in the living rooms of their homes. As a 15-year-old, he replaced the drum sticks for his first guitar. That guitar was borrowed from a friend in a chemistry class. “I was a good drummer,” recalled Duke. “But I had more of a calling for the guitar.” And there was the lure of the Chicago blues. He grew up in a diverse region of Chicago, attending Morgan High School which was divided equally between black and white students. After his first band played music by the Ventures and other pre-Beatles musicians, Duke discovered Maxwell Street, Chess Records and Muddy, Little Walter, and Willie Dixon. He was the original Jake and Elwood of the Blues Brothers. He recalls how sometimes he was the only white person in a club hosting the city’s top blues performers. “I could go anywhere,” Duke said. “I learned to keep my mouth shut, and I never had a problem. In fact, the guys in the bands would ask me if I was okay and would sometimes invite me down closer to the stage.” The teenager also discovered another side of the music business. “The guys would play cards in the back room,” Duke said. “They would put their guns on the table and play poker.” The street-wise Chicagoan took his music lessons book to the University of Illinois where he enrolled in in 1965. It took 28 years, but Tumatoe earned his college degree in history when he closed out one last class in 1993. Meanwhile, his music penned many chapters. After playing with groups such as Jimbo and the Cutaways, the Tradewinds, the Collegiates, and Lothar and the Hand People, Tumatoe signed up to play guitar with King Edward and the Gay Poppers. The group was predominately composed of residents from the Champaign-Urbana black community. King Edward and the Gay Poppers hit the infamous “Chitlin Circuit” and performed in black clubs in the Midwest. “You would play in bar-b-que joints, a black VFW, or American Legion post,” remembered Tumatoe. “Sometimes the air conditioning didn’t work; and one time in Danville, Illinois, the stage faced the bathroom.” He also recalls another date when a wife in the crowd confronted her husband about his fidelities. “She hit him on the head with a beer bottle,” Duke said. “He went down like an oak tree.” Then a big change came in 1968. After conversations with a friend, Duke and a band member with a fledging rock and roll group in Champaign-Urbana traded guitar players. One joined the Gay Poppers. Tumatoe signed on with a band called REO Speedwagon. Yes, that REO Speedwagon. The marriage was fun but short-lived.

“REO had wonderful guys, and I still call them friends,” Duke said. “But they wanted to become rock stars and I just wanted to be the best guitar player I could be. I never set out to be a star. “And I knew I would be in some uncomfortable situations in California. That lifestyle could have brought out the worst in me. I could have become a drug addict, been in jail, or been dead. I am just a Midwest guy. I wanted to practice and get better at the guitar.” The next episode led to Duke Tumatoe and the All-Star Frogs. Duke and wife Mary Anne landed in Indiana in 1981. Two years later, Duke Tumatoe and the Power Trio opened shop. The group has performed solo shows and paired with famous counterparts Iron Butterfly, Jethro Tull, and Blood Sweat and Tears (with Bill Cosby on the cowbells). The current Power Trio consists of drummer Joe Maddox, bassist Anthony Jones, and keyboardist James Hill, who has played off and on with Duke since 1966. Locally, though, it has been Duke as a soloist who has written and sung Lord Help Our Colts since 1985 on WFBQ. One early ditty came after the first victory following an 0-13 start to the year. (“I’m so excited I can scream. The Colts won and are one and thirteen,” Duke sang.) A Hoosier legend was born. Duke would later turn out Believe in Blue during a playoff run by the local heroes.

But Tumatoe also remembers being tackled for a loss when performing at a Christmas Party by Jim Irsay. The team cancelled his performance because of displeasure by then coach Ron Meyer. Another time, the wife of quarterback Gary Hoogeboom contacted Tumatoe at the radio station in tears because of the inclusion of Hoogeboom in Lord Help Our Colts. “I try to be careful and not (pick on) an individual,” he said. Now, other team-related songs have stretched throughout professional and college leagues. Tumatoe has done rally songs for Ohio State, Oklahoma, Syracuse, Michigan, Wisconsin, Iowa, and other college football teams. And sorry, Colts fans, but the Carmel resident has also scripted and sang songs boosting the Patriots, Titans, Ravens, Browns, and Bengals in the NFL. Last summer, he did a Lord Help Our Tigers version for the Detroit Tigers. But the first love is not recording or singing on radio stations. Duke Tumatoe still gets chills when he grabs his guitar, Albert – a partner since 1969 – and greets a live audience from a stage. There’s nothing better than having people watch you play for three hours,” he said. “I love it.” Ray Compton is a former journalist and longtime sports marketing person.

at started out 25 years ago as a one-off celebration of Carmel’s sesquicentennial has become an annual two-day extravaganza featuring concerts and contests, a parade and parties, and a fireworks-to-music show that rivals any other fireworks in the state. CarmelFest, celebrating its 25th anniversary on July 3 and 4 as “Silver Jubilation,” is now the city’s largest single event.

The early years of CarmelFest were run under the auspices of the Chamber of Commerce. More recently – the last eight years or so – the Rotary Club of Carmel has taken over as the directing organization. Worrell says during the years between the Carmel Chamber and the Carmel Rotary, CarmelFest was run by other entities or simply groups of community-minded citizens. Eventually, they found that it was best to have an “official” organization to run the event. “Ultimately, it’s a group of volunteers (400) who feel strongly about keeping patriotism alive and putting on a good show and a good party for the citizens of Carmel,” says Worrell. And what a party it will be! On July 3 from 4:00-10:30 p.m., Carmel Civic Square comes alive with free entertainment on four stages including live music, dancing, the KidZone,

the North Zone Party, and the “CarmelFest Has Talent” competition on the Gazebo stage. Then on Independence Day, the “St. Vincent Health Fourth of July Parade at CarmelFest” steps off at 10:30 a.m. CarmelFest Parade Director Peggy Powell expects as many as 120 units to fill the parade with music and color. Powell says most of the units will supply their own music, like the Gordon Pipers, area high school bands from Sheridan, Westfield, Fishers, Cloverdale, and more, and even a couple kazoo bands (presented by the Carmel Farmers Market and Meridian Music). In keeping with the 25th anniversary celebration, this year’s parade grand marshals will be former mayor Hancock and former chamber president Blondin. Powell encourages every parade entry to have some kind of music as part of the entertainment for the parade viewers. To help that effort, she plans to have Carmel High School’s WHJE Radio playing patriotic music so parade units can have it on their car radio or boom box. “We also have a huge military presence in the parade,” says Powell. People come out to celebrate the community; to celebrate the Fourth of July.” Another parade tradition for CarmelFest is people staking out their favorite viewing spot and placing their lawn chairs along the parade route the night before. It’s an honor system that seems to work well. And if you’re bringing your kids, don’t forget to bring along a bag to haul away all the candy they’ll collect. For safety’s sake, Powell says people on the floats are not allowed to “throw” candy but, rather, have walkers alongside the float to distribute the goods. After the parade, it’s back to Civic Square for more festival activities from noon until time for the “My107.9FM Fireworks at CarmelFest Launched by Firestone” at 9:45 p.m. To view the fireworks, they say if you can see the red blinking light at the top of the tower next to the Monon Trail June 2013

But it didn’t start out that way. Jeff Worrell, this year’s CarmelFest chairman and long-time event volunteer, explains that back in 1988, then-mayor Dottie Hancock was looking for a little extra something to commemorate Carmel’s 150th birthday. Hancock enlisted the help of Nancy Blondin, who was president of the Carmel Chamber of Commerce at the time, and CarmelFest was born. Although it was the mayor’s idea and the city has always supported it, CarmelFest is not a “city event” per se.

just north of City Center Drive, you’ll see every shell. Jeff Worrell promises this year’s fireworks will be the biggest yet. While the exact number of fireworks is a closely-guarded secret (because of a good-natured rivalry with the city of Indianapolis and its fireworks), Worrell did divulge that Carmel’s spectacular finale alone will feature 1,500 shells. The whole show will be synchronized to music on My107.9-FM. To help defray the costs of the fireworks, CarmelFest sells Spark Buttons, colorful buttons featuring the CarmelFest logo and pictures of fireworks. Worrell sold the first Spark Buttons in 1994. “I think we sold a grand total of 27 buttons Jack Badger displays a Spark Button

that first year,” says a bemused Worrell. Around 2008, Jack Badger took up the mantle as “Mr. Spark Button.” He created a Spark Button that actually lights up like little fireworks. He made 25 of them by hand that year and sold them for $25 apiece. They proved to be so popular that the CarmelFest committee wanted 500 of them the following year. Badger turned that job over to a professional manufacturer, but he’s still in charge of selling the unique souvenirs. And when he talks about the buttons, Badger lights up like one of his own flickering creations. He can’t imagine why anyone would not want a Spark Button to help support CarmelFest. There are two versions of the Spark Button, the original that sells for $3 and the kind with the LED lights, available for $6. But you don’t just get the button. Badger has seen to it that with each Spark Button purchased, you get a bag full of discount coupons from Carmel-area merchants. The $3 button gets you coupons worth $60 and the $6 button includes coupons worth $140. A total of 3,000 Spark buttons will be available, 1,200 lighted and 1,800 unlighted. Badger will be personally selling the buttons at the Carmel Farmers Market, at the Wednesday night concerts at the Gazebo from 6:00-7:30 p.m., as well as at Chamber luncheons, Rotary luncheons, and CarmelFest.

Twenty-five years after Dottie and Nancy got the ball rolling, CarmelFest is still going strong with its “Silver Jubilation.” And it just keeps getting bigger and better. “We’re honoring our military, remembering how our country was founded,” says Worrell. “This is a family celebration where people can get together and have a great time.” If you’d like to be a CarmelFest volunteer, log on to https://2013cfv.theregistrationsystem.com/en/1616.

Time Finally on Her Side Brown. My high school experiences will always be some of my greatest memories,” she said. “My coolest memory from college was playing in the NCAA tournament at Iowa my freshman year.” As the science department chair at Carmel High School where she teaches Honors Chemistry and oversees 35 teachers in the science department, time really wasn’t on her side, when it came to finding time to coach. Carmel’s Jenn Marlow | Mark Morrow Jennifer Marlow, who started and finished her high school coaching career as an assistant, has gone from an Indiana All-Star at Rushville High School in 1995 to a star on Butler’s women’s basketball team to girls varsity head coach for Carmel’s Lady Greyhounds to just a familiar face at the scorer’s table. As a 4th-grader in 1987, Marlow said she fell in love with basketball after attending a camp where the Indiana All-Star girls worked with the kids for a day. “They were so cool to us. The idea that you never know when you are making or breaking someone’s day is something I always try to keep in mind, especially in the teaching profession,” she said. She called reaching the State Finals as a sophomore as her best high school memory. “From a playing standpoint, I grew up in a community that has embraced girls basketball probably more than any community in the state of Indiana. So often anymore, players grow up with college scholarships on their mind. At Rushville, we grew up with the goal of being a Lady Lion and playing for Hall of Fame coach Cinda 28

carmel c o m m u n i t y

Carmel_June_2013.indd 28

Marlow spent her first year (200001) as assistant coach. Following that season, she was hired as the varsity coach and spent 3 years in that role. Marlow, who had a 34-33 varsity coaching record and was a 1995 Indiana All-Star teammate with Carmel’s Lisa Williams, saw her Rushville High School career come to an end against Carmel in the semistate. “Sometimes I say that I applied at Carmel in spite of Lisa Williams, Betsy Palecek, Jackie Gist, and the other girls on that ’95 Carmel team,” joked Marlow, who scored 1,485 points at Butler and was named to the university’s Sesquicentennial (18552005) team. “All kidding aside, I played some AAU and summer ball with those girls throughout high school and have a huge amount of love and respect for them. As for my decision to apply at Carmel, I student taught there. It just happened that the teaching position opened at the end of the school year. Thirteen years later, I’m still very happy to be at Carmel.” Marlow was not on the coaching staff in Carmel’s 2007-08 girls basketball state championship season, “But,” she said proudly, “I was one of the biggest fans in the crowd. That team was so much fun to watch.”

“From a coaching standpoint, the regional victory over Ben Davis in 2011 (Carmel ended the 2-time defending Class 4A state champion’s record 81-game winning streak) was definitely the highlight. Even though Ben Davis was on one of the greatest runs of all time, we felt all season that we were the only team that could beat them because of our style of play. To see a group of young ladies buy in and believe in themselves is the biggest reward of coaching.” “At that point in time, basketball had been a huge part of my life for a long time and I was ready for a break, so I resigned from coaching, continued to teach chemistry, and went back to school at Butler to get a Masters in Educational Administration. After 5 years out of coaching, Scott Bowen had an opening on his staff and – just like that – well, I was back in coaching as an assistant coach, which I very much enjoyed. When Marlow was coaching, she was somewhat of a fashion plate – a very stylist coach, if you will – certainly one of the top ones on the sidelines. When asked about that, Marlow chuckled. “I can’t say I ever considered myself fashionable, but I’ll take it. There’s really no story behind it, except that I did play my high school basketball for the best-dressed coach in the state. “Just a year after getting back into coaching, the Science Department Chair position opened up, and I was lucky enough to get that position. While I wanted to be able to do both – and both Scott and our school administration were supportive of me doing both – I wasn’t able to put the time into coaching that I felt the job deserved.” She recently resigned her coaching position.

kids and coaches, but I won’t miss coaching. When I stepped down as head coach, I really never planned to coach again – certainly not be a head coach again.

A few years back, she served as an NCAA student ambassador program adviser. “Through this program, high school student-athletes volunteered their time to go out to the elementary schools and teach sportsmanship lessons. We had a huge number of kids that wanted to be a part of the program and go above and beyond with their time. One of the really neat things about Carmel High School is that students and athletes aren’t afraid of hard work and they pride themselves on servant leadership,” Marlow said. “It just amazes me that so many students want to volunteer their time and efforts to benefit others.”

“But I love the gymnasium atmosphere. I’ve spent so many years in gyms, and I just couldn’t see myself not being involved in some form.”

“Will you miss it?” she was asked. “Sure, I’ll miss being around the

She’ll be right at home doing what she loves in her favorite atmosphere. And, oh yes. whether she’s wearing designer jeans, slacks, or a skirt, she’ll likely be the only one wearing high heels. Now, as time keeper for the Carmel boys basketball, games, time finally is on her side. When she was asked if she thought “Time on Her Side” was an appropriate headline, she just chuckled. “Yeah, that has nice ring to it. . .and I really like that.” Mark Morrow owns and operates Hamilton County Sports Daily (www.hcsportsdaily.com), the only all-sports website in Hamilton County.

That Healing Touch | J. Andy Murphy

cience tells us that nothing is as healing as the human touch, and Charlie Marsh knows this better than most. Marsh was living in Scottsdale, Arizona, when she signed up for a wellness Massage Envy membership. Curious about the franchise after several visits, she inquired about the business side of one of her most favorite places to be. She liked what she heard and tucked it into the back of her mind. Five years later, she decided the time was right to take the next step as a possible franchise owner; but that step took an unexpected turn when she learned the company needed a regional developer in Indiana (where she grew up). She applied for the position and got the job.

S

In 2007, Marsh opened what would be the first Indiana Massage Envy location at 146th and Meridian Streets. Business was swift as the wellness concept of professional massage therapy, delivered by highly-trained massage therapists, quickly spread. The process of engaging in regular massage therapy sessions that relieve strained muscles and pain, while reducing individual stress levels in a relaxing environment, truly does a world of good for the human body as medical reports clearly document the havoc that stress plays on the overall state of our general health. Add to that injuries that can accompany an active lifestyle at any age, and you clearly see what Marsh saw when she first decided to learn more about this very successful franchise operation. “I believe that the three pillars of the Massage Envy concept – Affordable, Convenient, and Professional – contain the wellness foundation that has expanded into over 1,000 locations nationwide,” she said. “We are open seven days a week in community locations that are convenient to our members on all sides of town. All our certified massage therapists have a minimum of 500 hours of professional training in the many areas of anatomy and physiology and meet all state and local licensing requirements,” she added. Massage Envy offers an alternative to your typical day spa with customized services and affordable pricing. They invite you to see what they are all about for $49. The one-hour session includes a consultation, dressing change, and then 50 minutes of hands-on massage with multiple types of therapy available. Massage Envy offers a variety of massage types from which to choose because therapeutic needs vary not only from person to person, but also from day to day. With variations in pressure, technique, areas of focus, and desired outcome, every visit is a chance to find your

new favorite massage or to experience wonderful facials with groundbreaking Murad skincare products specially formulated for Massage Envy Spa facial treatments. All four types of facials offer therapeutic solutions designed to promote healthy skin. Massage therapy helps you relax, re-align and rejuvenate. There are many positive aspects to receiving massage therapy on an ongoing basis. With the busy lives we lead, we can all benefit from a little stress management at a nearby Massage Envy. J. Andy Murphy is a published author and works as a literary agent for regional writers. She serves as the Executive Director of the WriteStuff Writers Conferences and Events.

The Career Coach: Be A Realistic Idealist | Elaine Voci, Ph.D. You’ve thought about it often. Hasn’t everyone? Those times when you were stuck in traffic going to and from work, you’ve toyed with the idea of running your own business. Being your own boss can be the answer to your discontent, and self employment does bring the thrill of building something that is uniquely yours through which to express your values and your creativity. Yet owning a business also presents three real challenges you will need to meet:

CHALLENGE 1: MAKING ENOUGH MONEY TO SURVIVE AND, HOPEFULLY ONE DAY, PROSPER The grim fact is that nearly 90% of all new small businesses fail in the first 12 months of operation. The reason why? Lack of preparation, planning, research and time spent talking with others who are successful in the same type of business you aspire to own in order to learn from their mistakes and benefit from their advice.

CHALLENGE 2: BALANCING TIME BETWEEN YOUR FAMILY AND YOUR BUSINESS Starting your own business is a little like falling in love. You are excited to be working on it each day, and it takes discipline to dedicate daily time and focus for each family member – including special attention to your significant other. If you balance your time, your family won’t feel resentful of the time you spend focused on your business.

CHALLENGE 3: ACCEPTING THAT YOU WILL HAVE ENTERED A PERPETUAL “JOB SEARCH” FOR NEW CLIENTS OR CUSTOMERS FOR AS LONG AS YOU ARE IN BUSINESS It’s ironic that some people are attracted to being selfemployed because they hate job hunting and then they discover that having a business makes them a perpetual job

I can help.

hunter because they have to constantly look for new clients or customers. It may get easier the longer you do it, but it’s always going to be part of business ownership. Ask yourself: “Am I willing to do what it takes to get what I want?” Turning a dream into reality requires passion and an idealistic mission, so don’t judge your dreams and don’t let anyone else judge them either. You’re not alone. Let me introduce you to Carmel resident Melissa Farmer, owner of Bath Junkie, a handmade bath and body studio (www. bathjunkie.com). For many years, Melissa worked as a marketing manager for a local CPA firm. On a weekend getaway to Nashville, Tennessee, a few years ago, she experienced a Bath Junkie store and was immediately taken with the concept of offering tailored bath and body skin care products for men and women in a fun environment. The timing was right: her only child was off to college, and she had the freedom to create a new career that would allow her to support local nonprofits she cares about while helping people feel good about themselves. After talking her plans over with other franchisees and trusted advisors and taking small-business-ownership classes, Melissa opened her store nearly a year ago. “I love City Center; it’s an amazing environment with very friendly and supportive fellow business owners. There is such a feeling of community among us.” Melissa’s advice for those who are thinking of starting their own business: “Be realistic about the time commitment you will be making to get your company off the ground; and be conservative about spending so that you don’t over extend yourself.”

Everything's Coming Up Roses for Judy Fitzgerald

Actor’s Theatre of Indiana Co-Founder Loves Her Roles | Denise Reiter Thomas Wolfe wrote that you can’t go home again, but Judy Fitzgerald is proof positive that you can — and that you can do it with great panache!

the Performing Arts. She’s worked alongside Broadway stars like Liza Minnelli, Marvin Hamlisch, Bob Newhart, and Glenn Close. Judy knows what it takes to move an audience. That’s why ATI hires Equity actors and only professionals, differentiating it from other local groups and giving it the nickname “the little theatre that could.”

While some Hoosiers leave Indiana behind to seek their riches elsewhere, local theatre entrepreneur Judy Fitzgerald left Indiana to chase her dreams and ended up bringing back the riches of Broadway to Carmel’s very own back yard!

Judy was raised in a musical Indianapolis family. Her mother was a singer and local music teacher. “When I was five years old, my mother heard me singing. It was right around then that I began performing in talent shows at Delaware Trails Elementary School.”

Call it luck or pluck, things have always had a rosy way of working out for this high-spirited, high-octane actress who is one of the founders of Carmel’s only professional Equity theatre company, Actors Theatre of Indiana (ATI) located at The Center for

One of her early memories echoes a recent favorite role as Mama Rose from Gypsy. “I can remember having stage fright and hanging on to a piano leg, not wanting to go on stage. My mother prodded me to go on. Of

course, once I was out there, I was fine.” Tim Brickley, singer/songwriter and owner of Hit City Recording at 54th & College in Indianapolis, is Judy’s childhood friend. Judy and Tim have collaborated on a variety of music projects over the years including radio jingles and industrials for Lane Bryant. Brickley fondly recalls, “My mom tells a story about Judy and me when were kids. I was around 10 years old and I predicted that all three Fitzgerald girls were going to be beautiful, but Judy was the one who had talent!” Judy’s high school theatrical life opened at North Central with “Bye Bye Birdie” as a freshman and ended with “Elephant Man” as a senior, winning the International Thespian Conference. Life in between those two shows was filled with performing in Rep Theatre and with the Counterpoints show choir. The late Bob Critzer, who headed the

newsletter | june 2013

5/29/2013 2:24:05 PM


Counterpoints, recognized her talent and wrote a glowing recommendation that helped pave her way to admittance into Millikin University in Decatur, Illinois. Millikin appealed to Judy on a number of levels including its smaller student body, but the musical theatre program was the main attraction. The department head, Dr. David Golden, had a big influence on her aspirations and convinced her she could do more on stage. Up until that point, Judy believed that music was her whole life. With encouragement from Dr. Golden, she gained the confidence to spread her wings and began embracing her skills as a burgeoning dramatic actor. Eager to learn everything she could about her craft, Judy took a job as the assistant stage manager at the Weathervane Theatre in Whitefield, New Hampshire, during the summer of her college junior year. As luck would have it, the production staff discovered she could sing and subsequently cast her in a majority of their shows. There, Judy met Tom Haas who was the Artistic Director at IRT. “He [Haas] liked hard workers, and I was fortunate that he liked me. I was cast in one of his cabaret shows, and we became good friends.” At the Weathervane, Fitzgerald worked alongside seasoned Broadway actors and production crews. The experience helped hone and polish her performance skills, preparing her for what was to come next. Armed with the spunk that only a 22-year-old could have, Judy moved to New York City. Back in Indiana, Judy had admired Bernadette Peters and had noted during a televised Tony Awards show that Peters had thanked her voice teacher by name in her acceptance speech. Once settled in New York, Fitzgerald located and enlisted the guidance of Adrienne Angel, Peters’

well-respected voice teacher. As one of Angel’s voice students, Judy worked hard and eventually gained notoriety as “one of the two best voices of the entire studio,” according to the highlyregarded teacher herself. Several of Fitzgerald’s friends were already living in New York City, including a close high school friend, Michael Blatt. “Michael told me to be

prepared when I moved to New York City. I know he was trying to protect me when he told me not to get my hopes up. But on the very first audition I went to, I ended up getting it! It was a touring show with Debbie Reynolds and Shirley Jones. We toured all over the United States staying in 5-star hotels. I got to sing and dance to movie musicals – and I made $1200 a week!”

Lady Luck was on her side because the odds of knocking it out of the ballpark on the first audition in the Big Apple are slim to none. But then, Judy has always considered herself a lucky person. After the tour, more work came her way with dates performing at Madison Square Garden and Radio City Music Hall.

Next season, Judy will star in the role of Patsy Cline in the musical Always… Patsy Cline. Also in the lineup is The Odd Couple, Forever Plaid, and I Love a Piano.

In 1992, Judy met fellow actor Don Farrell in a show called LifeSong. And while LifeSong did not turn out to be a box office smash, the long relationship these two formed, first with each other and then later with actor Cindy Collins, turned into a showstopper of a hit! The three – Judy, Don Farrell, and Cindy Collins – became fast friends and continued to find opportunities to work together whenever they could over the next several years. With each collaboration, the triumvirate – as Judy lovingly refers to the three of them – increasingly yearned to form a theatre company they could call their own.

Luck or pluck? You decide. One thing is certain, everything is coming up

Fast forward to 2005, the triumvirate decided to make their dreams a reality and, after meeting with Mayor Jim Brainard, chose to stake their flag in Hamilton County, thrilling Hoosierborn Fitzgerald! “We are so fortunate to have a mayor like Jim Brainard. He understands the economic value and high quality of life the arts offer to this region. The three of us proudly sang for the groundbreaking ceremony of the Performing Arts Center and are grateful for the wonderful support of the Mayor and the people of Carmel.” Soon after, Actors Theatre of Indiana made their home in the Performing Arts Center. They hit the ground running, opening at The Studio Theatre with Chicago – warmly received and critically acclaimed – and they haven’t looked back since! “We’re selling seats like nobody’s business and have doubled our subscription base from last season!”

“I do consider myself a lucky person! I’ve got a great family and I’ve always known that things are going to be okay.”

Five years old and ashamed: How LearningRx transformed a kindergartner’s self image | Neal Moore

eather Koenig did what responsible moms do when their children are struggling in school: she went looking for a solution. Her daughter, Alexandra, was falling behind; her young mind filling with self-doubt and shame. “I was on the Internet and saw an advertisement for LearningRx,” recalled Koenig. “Alex was in kindergarten at the time and I knew something was going on. LearningRx intrigued me. It sounded like the perfect thing.”

H

At school and home, Alex was experiencing a kind of data disconnect. She would listen as her teacher or gymnastics coach rattled off instructions, but then finish only part of a task. This processing malfunction led to confusion, followed by embarrassment and “acting out” in class. “I was mixed up,” remembered seven-year-old Alex. Heather made an appointment to have Alex evaluated, and during the follow-up meeting with LearningRx Executive Director Lynne McCauley, learned that her distracted daughter had an auditory processing disorder. “It’s different than autism. She wasn’t processing verbal instructions correctly,” explained Koenig. “You go in nervous, and when you find it can be fixed it’s a huge relief.” “Many kids struggle with auditory processing issues,” explained McCauley. “The ear has to hear sounds correctly, of course, but what is the brain doing with that sound as an electrical impulse? Does it discern the difference between sounds? If not, the words rad-red-rid can all seem the same.” Inefficiencies or inaccuracies in how the brain is handling such sounds can overwhelm a child’s ability to keep up with the pace that the sounds are coming, and they zone out or shut down and miss information. “Kind of like overloading your computer at home,” said McCauley. “So, it can look like the child’s not paying attention, when really it’s information overload.”

learning how to focus in a noisy, potentially distracting environment. One of her tasks included adding columns of numbers out loud, on beat, within a certain time frame. “They walk around chirping numbers, reproducing an over-stimulated environment to helps kids learn to tune out distractions and focus on the task or information,” explained Koenig. Since completing her LearningRx brain training, and incorporating the brain training principles into school work at home, Alex’s classroom performance at Hoosier Academy has improved dramatically. “The teacher now knows she gets the full set of instructions,” said her mother. “The skills were already there, she just needed to get to them. The one thing I wanted for her was to not feel embarrassed or ashamed by ‘failure’. I didn’t want her labeled.” “There’s a lot to be said for a mother’s instinct,” offered McCauley. “If you suspect there’s a learning issue, bring your child in for an evaluation. When kids struggle day after day, and no matter what they do or try, the situation doesn’t change or improve, they start to lose motivation to keep trying.” What typically develops are confidence and self esteem issues, and a sense of dread about going to school or sitting down to homework. “By identifying the underlying cause of the learning problem, you can identify the right solution and give your child the tools to be happier and more successful at school, at home and in everyday activities like sports and extracurricular activities,” said McCauley. “Who doesn’t want that for their child?” Neal Moore has over 30 years of media and communications experience, including TV news anchoring and reporting in Indianapolis. For more information, visit www.NealMoore.com.

McCauley noted that parents come to LearningRx not for a Band-Aid, but a permanent fix. “About 80 percent of learning problems are caused by inefficiencies in how the brain actually processes information – things like memory and attention,” said McCauley. “In as little as ninety minutes, we can pinpoint the underlying cause and create a customized brain training solution that puts people on the path to easier faster learning.” Alex’s action plan included several 90-minute sessions for 12 weeks with LearningRx cognitive skills trainers,

Carmel’s Teacher of the Year loves teaching third grade students

olding a young mind is not something we should take lightly. The teachers our children have early in their school career might very well be the determining factor of whether they love school or they don’t, and their feelings about school can reverberate in their lives forever. 40

It really is an awesome responsibility. It is a responsibility that Renee White relishes. Renee, who teaches 3rd grade at Carmel Elementary School, was selected as Carmel’s Teacher of the Year, an honor she calls amazing. “I had a hard time even thinking straight; I was so, so excited. I work hard; I

know I’m a good teacher. But our district is full of so many amazing teachers. Just in my building we have so many great teachers. And then the teachers I’ve met at different schools at different district events. . .it just seems unfathomable that I could win such an award. I was very, very surprised,” she says.

all 11 years of her teaching career in Carmel and always third grade. “Third grade, I think, is a great age. They’re old enough that they can do things independently. So I’m not tying shoes and doing those things. I can really teach them. But they’re young enough that they still love school and they’re still excited about school,” she says adding that she hopes to continue teaching third grade in the future. Renee calls Carmel a wonderful district in which to teach and says Carmel teachers are very fortunate because they have so much support from colleagues, parents, and administration. “It’s not like I’ve got some magical technique. If you put me someplace where they are struggling because they don’t have the resources and they don’t have the support and they don’t have the parent involvement, I’m not necessarily going to be able to do there what I have done here,” Renee says. As for challenges, she calls having enough time the biggest one because there is so much material to try to cover. You’ll find Renee at her desk long after her students have gone home for the day. She’s often there until 6 p.m. or later planning for the next day of molding those young minds. She is exactly the kind of caring, hard-working teacher you want for your child. Ann Craig-Cinnamon is a 30-year radio and television broadcast veteran. Ann is the Publisher of the Carmel Community Newsletter, a writer , travel speaker and author of the book “Walking Naked in Tehran”.

The intersection of Main Street and Range Line Road, looking north on Range Line Road ca. 1946-47

| From the archives of the Carmel Clay Historical Society The most prominent intersection of what is now the Carmel Arts and Design District is Main and Range Line. It was a popular intersection back in the 1940’s, too, when Brown’s Drug Store inhabited the first floor of the building on the northwest corner. Later, it became Union State Bank. Today, the downstairs of the building is empty and the intersection looks completely different.

Says Arthur Thomas Davis: “I had a chocolate malt at the drug store every Saturday after I collected from my paper route.” Susan Armstrong recalls: “I loved that drug store as well. Could sit at the fountain and drink an ice cream soda out of a tall glass. Great memories.” Steve Weesner says: “Union State was on the corner and Browns was in the other building. I remember opening my

first savings account there and buying chocolate sodas at Browns. My paper route was both sides of Range Line from Main to Smokey Row Road. I always made sure I ended at Browns for a treat. Sure do miss those days. No stop light – only a four way!!”
