Correction Notice In last month’s feature on the Sanctuary in Zionsville, we mistakenly printed the wrong phone number. The correct phone number is 317-733-1117.


World renowned painter Nancy Noel in her Zionsville gallery on Main Street. Behind her, an original painting called “Time” .

Timeless Paintings by Nancy Noel By J. Andy Murphy The award winning Sanctuary has been voted one of the best places to visit in Indiana, however the reputation of the gallery extends far beyond the quaint, historic town of Zionsville. As the majority of visitors, patrons, and collectors who flock to The Sanctuary not only come from coast to coast but also from around the world. Housed in an 1800’s renovated, Victorian church, with two fireplaces, 24ft ceilings, 10,000 square feet of area, custom made chandeliers, gift shop on the lower level, and a bistro with a Victorian back bar, The Sanctuary is not a typical art gallery. Visiting The Sanctuary is an experience in itself. Nancy was an adult before being diagnosed with dyslexia. She always suspected her brain didn’t process the same as others. Even though it caused a lot of pain in her childhood she has come to realize if it were not for her dyslexia she couldn’t do what she does. Today Nancy speaks openly about her “disability” and believes so called disabilities are not disabilities but rather our gifts. She believes “the real disability is in our inability to recognize the gift”. 22

The most powerful woman in the world, Oprah Winfrey, is Nancy’s most notable client having purchased not only works for herself but to give as gifts. Many celebrities and world leaders own Nancy’s work. Then as Trae Figley, N. A. Noel manager explains, “Everyday visitors relay extraordinary experiences when visiting The Sanctuary. Nancy’s art seems to touch people beyond words, there seems to be an emotional connection which people seem to have a difficult time finding words to explain.” Nancy came to realize that people were very interested in the stories of her paintings and tours have become a very popular attraction. Several times per week Jane Jimison leads tours for groups who come and spend the day having lunch at the bistro within The Sanctuary and visiting the gift shop on the lower level. Some visitors are fortunate enough to catch Nancy actually painting inside the gallery space. As her paintings have grown in size Nancy has been forced to bring her paintings from the farm studio to use the vast Sanctuary space, which is more accommodating to complete her large works. Nancy’s paintings and projects have been frequently in the news in past years. However it isn’t until you walk through

For those who don’t want to drive, there is daily transportation available with a social calendar for day trip destinations that are within 3 hours from their doorstep. Jennifer Gellinger is the executive director for this very busy community. She is a skilled health care provider who decided in college that she wanted to pursue a Master’s Degree in Gerontology (study of older adults) when her grandfather became ill. “Family dynamics drove me to this study. I came from a big family so there were a lot of opinions to deal with, but no clear options on how to solve our problems of care for my grandfather,” she said with remembrance in her voice. “I wanted to be part of a community that offered services that ranged from active, independence homes, with the padding of assisted living apartments and health care services of on-site professionals who really cared for the individuals. This is just that community. I love what I do and the people I share time and space with,” she adds.

My oldest son was graduating from high school and the empty nest syndrome was facing me when I discovered this community. I loved the atmosphere of independent living, and the services in place here for the seniors who need assistance in a dignified manner. We’re all about promoting independence in a safe environment. Our assisted living aspect combines many levels of care and skill. We are a licensed 24-hour assisted living community, and our Bridge to Rediscovery memory care program takes a Montessori-style approach to treating memory care residents. Through hands-on and personalized activities, we encourage creativity and self-expression. It’s an awardwinning program that focuses on the dignity of each person,” Cooley said.

All Garden Homes and apartments are convenient monthly rentals with no buy-in required. 100% satisfaction guaranteed or your money back!

Group is “ADDing BAC” to the Arts & Design District

Story and Photo by Jennifer Alderman As Carmel’s Arts & Design District continues to grow and prosper, some area business owners are coming together in an effort to support, expand, and serve the businesses located in the district. The Arts & Design District Business Association of Carmel (or ADDBAC for short) has one primary mission: to “add back” to the community together. Originally formed in 2008, ADDBAC started as the 6

brainchild of local business owners including Jill Zaniker, owner of the Simply Sweet Shoppe and Second Story Playhouse, located at 30 North Ridgeline Rd. The current ADDBAC Board is comprised of six members. The group’s initial goal was to create an organization that would work as a tool to improve the communication between district businesses, as well as promote charitable efforts and develop meaningful events within the community. According to Zaniker, “Having all of the

businesses working together will only improve the quality and experience of the Arts & Design District.”

are still under construction, so stay tuned for more details.

Any District area business may join the organization, and there are several options for participation. The organization meets once a month to discuss current events surrounding the Arts & Design District and to plan new events that will both enrich the community as well as drive patrons into the District. “The unique businesses that call the Arts & Design District home are what give the area character and charm, and when those unique talents are combined we can create some really special events, “ says Zaniker. ADDBAC is already gearing up for a new event to take place this fall – The Carmel Apple Fest. Intended to be a fundraiser for the Arts Council Scholarship Fund, ADDBAC will be soliciting the help of the community to submit recipes to compile into a cookbook that will be released in conjunction with Apple Fest. Many plans

The members of ADDBAC’s Board hope that through the group’s efforts the District can continue to see positive growth and can become known as a premiere arts and design attraction in the Midwest.

Reflections from Carmel’s First Kindergarten Teacher

Peggy Reeves

Photos and Story by Mindy Fleming A plan is finally in place this year to allow Kindergarten students in the Carmel Clay School district to attend fulltime without paying additional fees! Woohoo! Long time Carmel Native, Peggy Reeves is just thrilled with this news. Peggy has lived in Carmel for over 52 years, with 28 of them dedicated to serving the Carmel Clay School District as a Kindergarten teacher. But her true claim to fame is that she helped open the very first room for Kindergarteners in the old Carmel Junior High School building. So I bet you are wondering when this took place … want to guess? It was around the time Bob Dylan and The Supremes were popular. The first Ford Mustang was manufactured during this year as well. Still can’t guess. Well, it was way back in the swinging 60’s – 1964 to be exact. And in Carmel Clay Schools, the first room dedicated to just Kindergarten was born.

“The administration wanted it,” Peggy explained. “And the community wanted it. There was so much enthusiasm for Kindergarten to be put in the schools.” Peggy graduated from Butler and started as a third grade teacher. Her mother was a teacher, as well as her grandfather and a few of her aunts. “I never thought I would be a teacher,” said Peggy. “And I thought third grade was my niche, until I started teaching Kindergarten.” It ended up being her love … for 28 wonderful years. The first room had both AM and PM classes with 35 kids per class. The following year, they added a second Kindergarten room. “At that time schools were busting at the seams and all schools wanted Kindergarten,” said Peggy. Two years later College Wood Elementary opened and incorporated two rooms that ‘qualified” for Kindergarten, in which Peggy helped design. “As we grew and had

more teachers, the teachers we began to hire had Kindergarten training,” explained Peggy. “This group of teachers was so neat.” However, they needed a Kindergarten curriculum. “We would sit and write and write all the subject areas and debated as to what the curriculum should be and what we wanted. We needed a niche in the public school system. We were so fortunate to have these gals that cared in Carmel, as well as the support of the administration.” Each school built thereafter had rooms equipped for Kindergarteners. Peggy wrote the educational specs for all the schools built up through Cherry Tree. These specs included things like countertop heights, bathrooms, circle areas, composition of the floors, large open spaces, tables on wheels, having windows in the rooms and the location of the rooms to name a few. Everything about the room revolved around the little people who would be attending. “Those Junior High School teachers backed me up all the way,” Peggy said. “The school system went right along with everything we were doing and embraced it. They accepted it and learned from it.” Peggy went on to say that the entire Kindergarten development couldn’t have happened if the administration and community didn’t want it. But they did. “It was wonderful.” Peggy was able to visit a Kindergarten class at Prairie Trace a few months ago. “It was geared towards their abilities. The room was exciting and a great place to be as a five year old.” Peggy also explained that these students are curious; they ask a lot of questions and are very smart. “They can problem solve beautifully.” And to conclude, Peggy leaves us with this “I thank God so many times that my parents sent me to school.” So may your children say the same thing when they grow up, like Peggy. Mindy is a wife and stay-at-home mom of three beautiful children. She also owns Salsa Creative Marketing LLC - an advertising/ marketing company.

Living on the Edge with HVAC

Comfort is All in the Family By Stephanie Carlson Curtis It’s all in the family when it comes to keeping your family comfortable. In 1966, Jim Williams, Sr. set out to build a business with comfort as its middle name. Entering the heating and cooling industry, he started one of the first companies in Carmel dedicated to improving living environments and providing reliable indoor air quality in customers’ homes. Williams Comfort Air thrived, homeowners were pleased and he developed the reputation as a reliable caring community partner. A few years ago, thinking it might be time to retire, Williams sold his company. But, retirement didn’t make him comfortable, thus Williams teamed up with his son, Jim, Jr., daughter Kelly and close friend, Tom Melangton to launch Edge Guys. Now, he is back in the comfort 12

business. “I started my career in 1952, sweeping floors and cleaning bathrooms. I kept progressing until I was hired at Bolls Furnace Company in 1955. They are still in business today.” According to Williams, he learned his trade from his boss, Fran Bolls. He trained at the Williamson Company in equipment manufacturing, engineering and mechanical layouts and learned to hand craft sheet metal on the job. “Back then, we were still doing coal furnaces. Because of utilities and their expanding role in heating, we installed a lot of oil and gas furnaces in the late 1950’s and 1960’s. In that same era air conditioning was coming on strong in the automobile and in residential markets.” As the comfort climate evolved, Williams knew it was time for him to make a change – from employee to employer. He established an office at the northwest corner of 116th and Range Line Road next to the Estridge IGA supermarket. “I

worked alongside Paul Estridge when he was just getting into home building.” Carmel’s booming residential market in the 1960’s and 70’s paved the way for the growth of his company. Williams was instrumental in designing and installing HVAC systems in nearly 80-percent of all homes built during that time in neighborhoods like Brookshire, Cool Creek, and Woodland Springs working with innovative builders who plotted subdivisions and built home throughout Carmel. “My son was born the same year as my company. Back then I could only hope he might be interested in the same line of work.” As his boy grew, Williams began taking him on jobs. “My favorite memories when I was little are of Dad taking me to places like the Beehive, where Cancun is located today on Rangeline Road. All of the builders and subcontractors met to discuss business over coffee and made deals on a handshake,” said Williams, Jr. “I started working for Dad here and there, after school doing odd jobs and picking up parts at Hedback’s supply house.”

We envision a boutique-style company,” said Melangton, head of sales and marketing. “The Edge Guys are classy guys that take the extra step to ensure that customers get full service and have a positive experience with climate control, as well as comfort in knowing we are going to send the right guys on time, in believing we will respect their homes, and confident that we have the expertise to get the job done right the first time.”

8 inches ranks No. 3 nationally among high school studentathletes. In back-to-back meets at Carmel this season, Langston also set Hamilton County and IHSAA Sectional records in the discus throw. But yet, the 2012 Metropolitan Interscholastic Conference champion has thrown the iron ball over 60 feet, too. One thing he knows for sure is that he’d like to be named Indiana’s Mr. Track, and he wants to be a national champion. “My goal all along has been to become a national champion,’’ Langston said. “ I’ve worked hard to get where I am today, and if it doesn’t happen it won’t be because I didn’t put in the time, effort, and desire.’’ Langston finished sixth in the 14-and-under nationals competition in field events when he was in the eighth grade. As a sophomore, he qualified for the youth nationals. In 2012, he’s won the state indoor title at the Hoosier State Relays (for large schools) in the shot put. He was No. 1 in the discus in the Prep Invitational and No. 1 in the shot in the Western Invitational. He is the Hamilton County champion in both the shot and discus, and he won the U-Kentucky Invitational as well as the Warren Central Throwers Showcase in the shot.

Carmel High School standout Langston Newton will be attending the University of Kentucky this fall on a football scholarship. An all-around athlete, Newton also holds several discus and shot put records and will most likely be named Indiana’s Mr. Track. Newton is shown here carrying a lawn chair he found in the school’s trash dumpster, a place you’ll find him sitting in while waiting for his turn at the discus.

The Newton Family By Mark Morrow Discus throw or shot put? Ask Carmel High School senior Langston Newton which is his best event and he nonchalantly nods his head and illustrates with his hands as if he doesn’t have the answer. After a short pause, he replies: “Oh, it really is pretty much apples and oranges.’’ he said. “I like both events. My technique is probably better in the discus throw, but I really like both events, and I can’t say which is my best event.’’ One might think it’s the discus, where his effort of 203 feet, 14

Langston plans to compete nationally again this summer in the 20-and-under junior nationals. He only recently turned 18, so he has three years to compete for a spot on the USA team. If he places among the top three this summer, he would automatically be on the USA national 20-and-under team. Langston is going to the University of Kentucky on a football scholarship, but the 6-foot-5, 235-pound all-state defensive end plans to compete in track as well. Ken Browner, Carmel’s track and field coach, showed some concern when he talked about the soft-spoken, but extremely physical and aggressive standout performer playing two sports. “Sometimes it doesn’t always work out, especially when you have track in the spring and spring football drills,’’ said Browner. “If he’s not available to give his full attention to the football program, they might put him at the bottom of the depth for spring drills and make him earn his way back. “Obviously, that can make it more difficult to earn his spot. He’s a very good football player, and it would be a shame if that should happen. But he’s an excellent athlete, and he’ll excel in whatever he chooses to do. And as good of a football player as he is, the weight events could still prove to be his ticket.’’ Langston doesn’t see it as a conflict. “Surely the coaches will get together and make it work,’’ he said. “I want to compete in both . . . so we’ll work through it. It’s a great atmosphere

at UK . . . hopefully,coaches will understand what I want to do.’’ Just another one of those apples and oranges situations, ‘eh? “Yeah, exactly,’’ Langston said with a smile. “Things have a way of working out, one way or another.’’ One thing that will work out for sure is that the three Newton brothers will be together. Morgan, the 2008 Indiana Mr. Football, quarterbacks the Wildcats. JJ Newton, the youngest of the three, a down lineman who,like Langston,won a ring when Carmel won the Class 5A state football championship last fall, will serve as manager for the football team, and you have to believe that Langston will excel. Langston is laid back until it’s time to jump up and do his thing. He’s always running, jumping up and down extending his legs and arms, almost like jumping jacks. He likes to stay warm and loose. But he knows how to relax, and since he’s usually one of the later competitors, he doesn’t take center stage until late in both the discus throw and shot put. At the start of the competition, you’ll see him sitting in an old lawn chair, taking in what the other guys are doing, especially in the discus throw. “I found this old chair in the dumpster outside the school,’’ he said. “So I carry it with me in case I want to sit a spell. It’s come in pretty handy.’’ And, oh yes, the Newtons’ dad, Dr. John Newton — a former collegiate football standout at Grambling State University, a

former high school football coach at Broad Ripple, and now an assistant principal for Carmel High School — won’t be on the road as much or have to keep contacting his boys on his cell, where he’s got ‘em on speed dial . . . especially Morgan, since he’s so far away. “Dad travels to as many of Newton’s (Morgan’s? does the author have the boys mixed up?) games as possible. I mean, he’s driven so many miles,’’ said Langston. “Dad is our rock, our everything. Our taxi driver, our . . . well, you name it, and he’s our inspiration. And he was a motivational speaker for our football team. He’s just so very involved in everything we do. And now, he’ll be able to see us all together on the same campus. That will be cool.

to middle school students and promote the community by going out and talking to the youth. “That’s one thing dad has always stressed, that we give back to our community and help others,’’ Langston said, proudly. “This is important to us. Not everyone knows some of what we do, but it’s important to all of us, and I think it’s important that others know what our family is all about.’’

When Langston talks about his family, and how close-knit they are, you can see it in his eyes. “We do a lot of things together. When Langston (Morgan? does the author have the boys mixed up?)comes home in the summer, we do a lot of things for the community. He gives away (signed) Kentucky souvenirs and other memorabilia, etc. We do things for the less fortunate, to help the needy; we go to half-way homes. “Dad is always the first one to make sure that JJ and I know the importance of what we’re doing, and going with Morgan to help people, and just to let them know we’re there for them . . . and that we care.’’

Yeah, all about a true Family Affair! Mark Morrow owns and operates Hamilton County Sports Daily (, the only allsports website in Hamilton County.

Langston said he and his brothers are part of a focus group at Carmel. They do things to help build up the high school

BBQ Burnout Dear Heather, I’m planning to host a get-together in my backyard this summer, but want to avoid the typical grilled burgers and potato salad. I don’t want to drive myself crazy with the preparation, either, or break the bank. Any suggestions? Not a BBQ Fan While backyard BBQ’s are a summer tradition, I can certainly understand your desire to do something a little different. Keep in mind, there are three major elements to most any event: décor, food, and entertainment. The décor will largely depend on your backyard and what it offers. Consider adding additional seating, or rearranging what you have to ensure good flow and plenty of comfortable conversation areas. Use potted plants and flowers to augment – or disguise – specific features. Some greenhouses and nurseries will even rent plants specifically for events.

Heather Lapham Kuhn is the owner of L’Evento Boutique, an event resource boutique in the Carmel Arts & Design District that provides party or event planning advice and resources. This column is her first monthly column for the Carmel Community Newsletter where she will field and answer questions centered around your event planning dilemmas. To submit your questions, visit www.atCarmel. com and click on the “Dear Heather” icon or email her direct at heather@

You want to avoid the stereotypical backyard fare, so I would suggest looking for recipes that feature a lighter, modern take on the standards. Consider setting up three or four stations for serving, rather than one central food table. The stations can be themed around a flavor (e.g. cumin, curry), regional cuisine (e.g. South Pacific, Cuban), or even just portions of the meal (e.g. salads, entrée). By splitting the food up, you encourage your guests to move and mingle. It also gives you more freedom to get creative. Consider serving Tapas-style, or small bites, to encourage people to try many different items. Finally, don’t forget entertainment. Just tuning in your favorite radio (or Pandora) station is always an option, but creating a custom mix of music will make things that much more fun. Get a tech-savvy friend (or teenager) to help if this isn’t your thing. To step things up just one more notch, think about bringing in a DJ; he or she will be able to read the mood of your crowd, and tailor the musical selections accordingly. Above all, plan to relax and have fun. Enjoy your guests’ company, and keep an extra roll of paper towels handy – just in case. Cheers, Heather, The Events Concierge

Business Spotlight

Church, Church, Hittle & Antrim 2 North 9th Street Noblesville, IN 46060


(Left to right) Samuel Robinson, Ann O’Hara, and John Davis discuss a case in the downtown Noblesville offices of Church, Church, Hittle & Antrim.

Church, Church, Hittle & Antrim:

From Cobblestones to Computers By J. Andy Murphy Today’s market leaders are those companies that had the foresight to recognize the changing landscape in their community and business environment. Church, Church, Hittle & Antrim is Hamilton County’s oldest and largest law firm. Church, Church, Hittle & Antrim’s history began in 1880 when Joseph A. Roberts began his practice in Noblesville, the county seat of Hamilton County with 5,000 or so residing residents at that time. As time passed, Roberts’ two sons (Roger and Justin Roberts) joined his practice concentrating in real estate, probate and estate law. Justin Roberts served as the Hamilton County prosecutor during the trial of D. C. Stephenson and served as the local trial counsel to the Marion County prosecutor. As history documents, the Stephenson trial was the beginning of the end of the Ku Klux Klan in Indiana.

n e w s l e t t e r | j u n e 2 0 1 2

In 1952, the modern era of the firm began with the arrival of Manson Church. Manson, a World War II veteran, represented a new generation of lawyers in the county and in the community. Shortly after his arrival, Church was asked to serve as school board attorney and city attorney and thus began a commitment that carries on to this day in the powerful and deeply experienced law practice of Church, Church, Hittle & Antrim. In the many circles of law, a comment that is heard often is, “If you end up in court in Hamilton County, you need this firm in your corner.” Today, there are 24 attorneys (13 partners) working actively in the many areas of law. The partners routinely have been lead counsel in both state and federal courts and have appeared before the Indiana Court of Appeals, the Indiana Supreme Court and the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit. Law is a demanding profession indeed, and this firm sets the standard in required continuous, advanced education

Managing partner and school law attorney David Day (left). Labor and employment law attorney Andrew Manna (right). for each of its attorneys. Not only has the firm grown in the number of skilled and qualified lawyers, but the support staff has also expanded in size and knowledge with experienced legal assistants and clerks who provide a wealth of practical and useful information and support for the ultimate benefit of the firm’s clients. Another note of interest is the firm’s representation of every school district in Hamilton County. Managing Partner, David Day, is the practice group leader for the firm’s School Law Practice area. And, we would be remiss if we didn’t tell you that CCHA enjoys an AV Preeminent rating, the highest ranking possible for both legal ability and ethics in the Martindale-Hubbell listings, a national ranking service compiling the opinions of other lawyers about CCHA lawyers.

The firm’s Noblesville office occupies a corner position at 2 North 9th street on the square in Noblesville. A recent restoration has joined the new with the treasured past history of the building which dates to 1890. The class of the building is indeed fitting for this law practice, which now has additional offices in Fishers and Tipton and represents clients throughout central Indiana. The legacy of this 130 year old law firm is evidenced today by the community presence and involvement of its partners and associates. That’s the measure of a successful legacy. For more information on the legal services of Church, Church, Hittle & Antrim, please visit their website at or call direct at (317) 773-2190.

Orchard Park Elementary Wins Project 18

Visit from Peyton Manning

By Stephanie Carlson Curtis Childhood obesity is a growing trend as well as a preventable problem. Education can make all the difference. Former Indianapolis Colts Quarterback Peyton Manning wants to throw the ball for a touchdown in teaching children about making healthy choices. About 15 percent of Indiana’s high-school-aged children are overweight while another 14 percent are obese, according to 2007 Youth Risk Behavior Survey data. In a collaborative effort to reverse this trend and prevent childhood obesity, Project 18 was implemented and is moving into action in elementary schools. The program was created by Peyton Manning Children’s Hospital at St. Vincent in partnership with Marsh Supermarkets and Ball State University “This program addresses the whole child and is designed 26

carmel c o m m u n i t y

n e w s l e t t e r | j u n e 2 0 1 2

for those in third, fourth, and fifth grade,” said Diane Riemenschnitter, Orchard Park Elementary school nurse. “This is the third year Orchard Park has competed in the Project 18 Challenge which addresses risky diet behavior, and this year we won. We started an after-school group called Walk 18 which encouraged the kids to walk 18 minutes, run 1.8 miles, or run 18 laps around the school. You have to do something unique to win this honor, so we did.” In recognition of the achievement, Peyton Manning made a surprise visit, donated $2,500 to Orchard Park, and talked with students about nutrition. According to Riemenschnitter, Manning discussed refined grain versus whole grain and made the conversation fun by explaining the amazing catches game he plays with his Dad and brother, Eli. Out of 552 schools, Orchard Park did something different and was recognized for the extra effort it took to promote healthy choices. Manning was joined by Mark Hermann, former

Carmel High School, Purdue University, and Colts quarterback. According to Riemenschnitter, Project 18 starts the conversation and promotes awareness. “We teach portion size in the curriculum – a piece of meat is the size of our hand,” said Riemenschnitter. “After learning this, children would go home and tell their parents about portion sizes. I’m not sure it will change the course of their lives, but we have to do something and we always have the choice to eat right or to not eat right.” 338-KIDS (317-338-5437)
