A lot of mortgage companies stop servicing your mortgage after they sell it to another company. STAR is different.

Mike Sale (above) and Ryan Coyle conceived the BrewBracket Challenge in 2011. (Opposite page) A bourbon barrell like this one is being used to age beer entries in the upcoming BrewBracket Challenge on September29.

Malt Madness By Neal Moore It’s no surprise the idea of launching a live competition to crown Indiana’s best craft beer brewers began germinating at a local watering hole. Such a wholly appropriate setting is where Mike Sale and Ryan Coyle envisioned the BrewBracket Challenge. As the co-founders sipped – well, beer – they brewed up a full-bodied, flavorful idea: Create a bracket-style, single elimination tasting tournament. “The purpose of BrewBracket Challenge is to bring people together to taste and determine the very best craft beers,” explained Sale. “It also serves to promote the brewery that makes it to the top.” In spring, 2011, the inaugural BrewBracket Challenge was held. “We did some small tastings and quickly determined that we could do this on a larger scale,” remembered Sale. About 150 people are expected to attend the fourth BrewBracket event, Bourbon Barrel Aged Beers, Saturday, September 29, 6:00 – 9:00 p.m., at Tomlinson Tap Room in City Market, downtown Indianapolis. Tickets are priced at $45. Eight brewers will compete, this time with a new twist, er, 4

taste. Each is required to have stored their beers in wooden barrels donated by Harrison Bourbon Company, a southern Indiana distillery. “These premium beers will have set in the barrels about three months soaking up the flavor and color of the bourbon,” explained Joe Eaton, brewer and owner of Barley Island Brewing Company in Noblesville, and the winner of the most recent BrewBracket Challenge. Eaton described the bourbon taste as “strong, alcoholic – a more in-your-face flavor. These beers will pick up some additional components from the barrels.” Acting as both public tasters and judges, attendees sip and compare the tastes of two beers, picking a favorite. The randomly-seeded beers are served in two identical tasting glasses; tasters have no way of identifying the brewers. “A big component is making it a blind taste test. It strips away any bias,” said Sale. The winning beers move on in their respective tournament brackets. Taster palettes are cleansed, and the process repeats until two finalists remain for the championship round. “People love brackets! That’s certainly some of the allure,” Sale said.

The winner receives the handsome Big Tap Trophy – and more importantly, bragging rights. “There’s a lot of camaraderie among the brewers. This provides an opportunity to exchange ideas, but no trade secrets!” explained Eaton. “It’s more about showing off products than it is winning. Brewers participating in the Bourbon Barrel Aged Beers challenge include Barley Island Brewing, Bloomington Brewing, Flat 12 Bierwerks, The RAM, Bier Brewery, Figure Eight Brewing, People’s Brewing, and Triton Brewing.

Portfolio management services for individuals and institutions.

Craft beer brewing is bubbling. In the early days, Indiana had 18 or 19 commercial craft brewers. Now there are 50, with another seven or eight in the planning stages. “There’s still room for growth,” said Eaton. “It’s been nice to see it hit big. People want quality, not quantity, in beers.” Each BrewBracket has a featured charity that receives a portion of the proceeds.

Rosemary Waters, arts supporter and president of the Carmel International Arts Festival, prepares for the 15th annual Main Street celebration.

Splash of Color By Stephanie Carlson Curtis “An artist is someone who produces things that people don’t need to have but that he – for some reason – thinks it would be a good idea to give them.” In the words of Andy Warhol, the late popular pop artist who indulged in a variety of mediums to tell visual stories, this quote is parallel with the growth of the arts in Carmel. While some residents may feel our city does not need to invest in this creative space, others are champions, promoting the arts as a vital element in our community. Rosemary Waters is one of the preeminent arts supporters and president for the Carmel International Arts Festival. “I got involved with the festival its inaugural year. I was excited about the event because I love art and took a lot of art classes in college,” said Waters. “This is my fifteenth year volunteering for the festival. I became president seven years ago.” The celebration of the arts takes place on Saturday, September 22, 2012,10:00 a.m. – 6:00 p.m. and Sunday, September 23, 2012, 10:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. in Old Town Carmel Mayor Jim Brainard implemented the inaugural Carmel International Arts Festival in 1998. The first exhibition was held around the fountain in City Square. About 40 artists displayed their work that year. Since then, the event has grown to become an annual palette of color splashing the landscape with a variety of artistic talent. Artists from across the nation will set up shop along Main Street in the Arts & Design District. “We have artists coming from as far away as California, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, Georgia, Florida and Texas. The majority of artists are coming from surrounding states. We have 135 juried artists exhibiting in oil, watercolor, glass, 2D, jewelry, photography, 3D, wood, sculpture, and pottery,” said Waters. “We get the international flavor from our sister cities Kawachinagano, Osaka, Japan and Xiangyang, Hubei, China who will have booths at the festival.” From The Palladium to Main Street, Mayor Brainard has been influential in welcoming, developing and enhancing diverse cultural experiences demonstrating a well-rounded commitment to the creative arts. “We realize the tremendous impact that the arts have on our community and we invest in areas such as the Carmel Arts & Design District to help

attract economic development. The arts are a valuable asset, attracting jobs and enhancing the quality of life in central Indiana. In addition, first-rate arts and culture are instrumental in helping to attract young, educated professionals who will bring their energy and talent to the area,” said Mayor Brainard. According to Waters, one of the ways the arts festival attracts talent is through contests. The artists appreciate the recognition of their work. “We ask a qualified person to judge the artwork. Based on their judgment, we award $5,000 in prize money and give $1,000 for Best of Show, $600 for 1st Place, $500 for 2nd Place, $400 for 3rd Place, 10 Best of Media $150, and 10 Honorable Mention $100.” In addition, young artists are recognized for their talents. “Each year we have a High School Exhibit showing the talents of Carmel High School and University High School art students,” said Waters. “Their work is also judged and the winners are awarded ribbons.” And for budding young artists, the children’s area features face painting, easel painting, a caricature artist, Dooley the Clown as well as creative ways children can make their own masterpieces. These free children’s activities are provided throughout the festival. Admission is free and organizers expect attendance to reach more than 20,000 patrons over the two-day period. “There’s a saying that goes something like this. The arts are not how we live, the arts are why we live.” said Waters. “Our Arts Festival is just trying to help accomplish this. It’s important to participate in the support of the arts to keep the arts alive.” The city of Carmel is dedicated to creating a collage of well-rounded artistic appreciation for residents and visitors in order to bolster the economy and elevate the quality of life offered, as well as provide opportunities for artists to share their talents with the community.

Exploring the World of

Alternative Health & Wellness Story by J. Andy Murphy - Photos by Stefanie Turk Let’s explore another approach to health and fitness: Alternative Wellness. Traditional physician health care is ever expanding and is shifting a bit to include identified methods of Alternative Wellness. One could define Alternative Wellness as a proactive process of becoming aware of and making choices toward a more healthful being. There are many areas in our lifestyle that we know need our attention: Maintaining a healthy diet, engaging in daily exercise, reducing stress, getting enough rest, and regular doctor check-ups. So what can you do to be more proactive and take more responsibility in your overall state of health? Here’s an example of someone who decided to make a healthy lifestyle change toward wellness. 12

carmel c o m m u n i t y

Jeanne Britt is a busy woman who decided with her doctor to take a medical and alternative wellness partnership approach to managing her healthcare. She realized that her family health history, along with lifestyle, made it necessary to seek out ways to stay healthy. “I would rather adopt lifestyle changes in an effort to ward off illness than go to the doctor for treatment after an illness has attacked. I also wanted to set an example for my family that encouraged them to look at their own lifestyles and form healthy habits early. Being proactive and not reactive can make all the difference in the world,” she said. We have identified four Geist area certified professionals who provide Alternative Wellness care in the fields of Yoga, Digestive/Natural Health, Foot Reflexology and Thermography.

The Practice of Yoga

The classical techniques of Yoga date back more than 5,000 years. This practice of physical and mental exercise brings the body and mind together into one harmonious experience. The practice is built on three main structures: Exercise, breathing, and meditation. The exercises are designed to put pressure on the glandular systems of the body, thereby increasing its efficiency and total health. Breathing techniques are based on the concept that breath is the source of life in the body; breath control will improve the health and function of both body and mind. These two practices prepare the body and approach to a quiet mind that easy an mind for meditation, allows silence and healing from everyday stress. Regular daily practice of all three parts produces a clear, bright mind and a strong, capable body. Melissa Webb received her teaching certification in 2003 from the Himalayan Institute Teachers Association in Honesdale, Pennsylvania. She teaches Hatha Yoga to both

nutrition and the digestive system The digestive system is very extensive. Eating properly is key; our organs need proper nutrients to function properly. Too little healthy food and too much unhealthy food can interfere with normal processes of your digestive system. It is important to keep in mind that our organs need adequate nutrients. Without proper nutrients, the cells can die or fail to function properly. Your body also needs fiber and antioxidants – substances commonly found in fruits and vegetables – to neutralize free radicals that can harm your cells. When free radicals attack the cells and impair them, they lose their ability to produce functioning enzymes – specialized proteins needed in every facet of biological activity, including digestion and metabolic processes. It is important to digest enough fiber in your diet and consume plenty of fluid daily. Exercise can also help your digestion. Genie Goykhberg arrived in the United States from the former Soviet Union in 1990. She left her career in mechanical engineering to devote her time and efforts to educating others on how to live long and healthy lives as a

beginning and advanced students as well as classes in restorative Yoga, Yoga for kids, and partner Yoga. Asana, relaxation, breathing, and meditation are all part of her fun and instructional classes. “Movement is a simple way to improve the body, mind, and spirit. I believe Yoga has a very therapeutic side and so, in the years since my certification, I’ve completed a detailed study of Yoga as therapy. I’ve had the opportunity to work with people recovering from illness or injury. I’ve seen first hand the improvements that can be made with a few simple Yoga poses,” Melissa said, adding, “I personalize my classes as much as possible. I get to know my students’ bodies, injuries, and limitations. It is my goal to help everyone feel better as they walk out of class than they did when they arrived.” In Melissa’s class, the emphasis is on health. It’s not just a fitness routine, as Yoga draws you into your inner self. Once your body learns to relax, your mind relaxes as well. It is a balance that is so necessary to your overall health on all levels. For more information on Breath of Life Yoga please call 317.502.5630. Visit her website at or email her at

foot reflexology Foot Reflexolgoy it is beyond massage! Every organ in the body is reflected within specific areas of your feet. Nerve endings in the feet are inter-connected through the spinal cord and brain with all parts of your body. Each of us has more than 7,000 nerve endings in each foot. Reflexology is the application of pressure onto particular areas of the soles of the feet. A reflex action in another part of the body is stimulated by the manipulation of each specific area. It is important to know that Reflexology is different from ordinary massage, and the public should be aware of the separating factors involved. What are the benefits of Reflexology Therapy? It can relieve pain and stiffness. Working within the nerve system, foot reflexology can relieve problems with migraine headaches, stress, asthma, constipation, sinusitis, and leg neuropathy as well as other areas of the body under stress. It benefits improved circulation leading to the reduction of stress and disease, and the body’s function will be naturally turned into its homeostasis (the balancing of overall body system functions). Diane Meils is a Certified Reflexologist from Indiana UniversityPurdue University Indianapolis and is a nationally Board

Certified Reflexologist through the ARCB. As a professional Reflexologist, she is dedicated to a single purpose … helping to improve the health of individuals in a natural, noninvasive way. It is also noteworthy to share with you that Diane is a former professional ballet dancer with the Cincinnati Ballet and Charleston Ballet in South Carolina. She has BFA from the University of Cincinnati. This professional caregiver is engaging, with a warm energy that crosses over into her patientcare therapy. Diane advises anyone interested in Reflexology to make sure they find a certified Reflexologist, as they are certified to protect the public. The client also needs to know that the practitioner follows safe universal protocols. “In an EEG (electroencephalogram), theta waves are measured. Reflexology goes to a theta state, whereas massage is measured at a beta state. It is during the theta state where it is believed that healing really occurs,” Diane said. After learning more about the benefits of treatment through Reflexology, one quickly realizes how important our feet are in the connective path to wellness therapy. Reflexology is not age related, as it can be used to treat infants, teens, and adults with a variety of presenting symptoms,” says Diane. Reflexology is, indeed, a wonderful alternative wellness option that generates results in a relaxed and peaceful manner.

thermography Thermography is used by doctors as an aid for diagnosis and prognosis as well as monitoring therapy progress for an array of conditions and injuries. Although it might seem new to us, Hippocrates, the Greek physician, wrote, “In whatever part of the body excess of heat or cold is felt, the disease is there to be discovered.” The history of Thermography is fascinating and now documented. In 1982, the FDA approved Thermography as an adjunctive tool in breast cancer screening. It is also used in back injuries, arthritis, headache, nerve damage, unexplained pain, Fibromyalgia, RSP (CRPS), dental and TMJ, artery inflammation, vascular disease, Carpel Tunnel Syndrome, disc disease, inflammatory pain, skin cancer, referred pain syndrome, sprain/strain, whiplash, and digestive disorders. The digital infrared thermal imaging is a brief, non-invasive, radiation-free, pain free, clinical imaging process. It is quick and easy on the patient. Thermography is cost effective (covered under some insurance plans) and can be done in various regions of the body. As the world of medicine continues to expand, the wonders of specialized imagery is moving toward what might be the difference in discovering a disease well before it has advanced to a life-threatening situation.

It seems very clear that shifting the focus away from “being ill” to “being well,” thereby adopting lifestyle changes that your body needs to be balanced in its core and at peace from stress, is playing a larger role in personal health care, opening up many avenues of Alternative Wellness exploration. Talk to your doctor and explore together option plans that combine the best of both worlds! J. Andy Murphy is a published author and works as a literary agent for regional writers.

Abby Appelt went back to school to achieve her certification in Thermography (CNHP-CCT). She was a woman diagnosed with Chronic Fatigue/Fibromyalgia Syndromes. She went from doctor to doctor, undergoing multiple examinations, tests, blood draws, and consultations. With no improved results, she decided she had to go beyond traditional methods and seek out alternative pathways. “Thermography saved my life and changed my life,” she said, recalling her personal journey to wellness. Today, she is the founder of Thermography of Indianapolis, works with many doctors, and receives referrals from other medical specialists who are also invested in providing alternative methods of early detection.

Adding Back to the Community - Since 2008

Indiana Design Center The Indiana Design Center, located in the heart of downtown Carmel, is the epicenter for interior design resources in Carmel. Containing 80,000 square feet of showrooms and over 30 businesses, 11 retail showrooms inhabit the main floor of the Design Center and 4 to-thetrade showrooms on the second floor. The goal of IDC is to be a place where one can discover, learn, and connect with Indiana’s professional design industry. For those shoppers who are interested in coming to IDC for a design need but who are not currently working with a design professional, many first floor showrooms have professionals on staff who can assist with decisions and the website features a database of design portfolios for potential clients to review online.

Is your face scary without a mask? OK, maybe not, but well-done facial cosmetic surgery CAN turn the clock back on your face, improve features and facial balance, and restore self-esteem. Results may vary for the undead; the above photos are not typical for brain-eating zombies. With over a decade of experience, Dr. Catherine Winslow is one of the most experienced facial plastic and rhinoplasty surgeons in the country, and would be happy to consult with photo morphing to show you what changes are possible.
