SPRING BREAK ADVENTURES After the winter we’ve had, it’s hard not to long for the sunny beaches of Florida. But even if you aren’t among the herd heading south for spring break, you can still have an adventure all your own. The Midwest is filled with fun-filled attractions. So go ahead: Fill up the gas tank, gather your crew and hit the road. Family fun awaits.

NATURE’S CALLING

With fresh air, green space and natural beauty, a day at the park is a great way to renew your spirit. And with Indiana’s 25 state parks, releasing your inner child couldn’t be easier. Three of our favorites: Brown County, Turkey Run and Clifty Falls. With nearly 16,000 acres, Brown County State Park won’t disappoint. You can hike, ride horses or simply enjoy the view. If you’re brave enough, pack your mountain bike and hit the hilly trails (just make sure your brakes work). Afterward, stop at Fearrin’s Ice Cream & Yogurt in Nashville. If you get lured into the myriad local shops, so be it.

FAMILY FUN SPOTS

Give your kids a history lesson at Grissom Air Museum in Peru. Meander through the 23-acre property to view numerous military aircraft. You’ll see attack aircraft, fighter planes and bombers. The indoor museum has exhibits, artifacts and a hands-on cockpit simulation. It’s open Friday through Monday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Admission is $6, and group discounts are available. For details, call (574) 398-1451. Gators, penguins and sting rays, oh my! See them all at Cincinnati’s Newport Aquarium. Kids will delight in the Penguin Parade, and the whole family will enjoy the Dive Show. Admission is $23 for adults

ng Spri -Up n a Cle ecial Sp

Veteran hikers will enjoy Turkey Run. The rugged trails, suspension bridge, creeks and canyons all make a visit here memorable. You can fish in Sugar Creek, ride horses or simply explore the park’s historic sites. Clifty Falls is nestled in the hills of Southern Indiana. Named for its four waterfalls, this park offers great hiking trails for all ages. Take a break at the playground, or climb the observation tower to view the Ohio River. You can then shop in historic Madison or take a stroll by the river.

Financial Family Practice Gagne Wealth Management Group at Raymond James

Y

ou can draw a parallel between financial health and physical health. In the care of an experienced practitioner, better outcomes are likely. It is therefore telling that so many doctors and physicians have their portfolios with the advisors at Gagne Wealth Management Group. As Raymond James financial advisors, the motherand-son partnership focuses on providing the most appropriate financial advice to high-net-worth clients. Jay Gagne and mother Paula Gagne, senior financial advisor, apply nearly five decades of combined experience – and a partnership of 18 years – in building customized portfolios. “We have a philosophy,” says Jay Gagne, CIMA®, “that clients come to us with unique financial needs and it’s our job to create customized solutions.” This is something the partners are well prepared to do. The difference in their ages adds a depth to their understanding of the needs of their clients, who range from retired to just starting out. It merits mentioning that clients find the company by referral and are not Jay’s or Paula’s; they’re clients of the practice, benefiting from the perspectives of both. One strong emphasis is on education, Jay says. “When clients understand the investment solutions they have, and why they have them, they’re more likely to stay the course.”

“Clients come to us with unique financial needs and it’s our job to create customized solutions.” — Jay Gagne, CIMA®, president, Gagne Wealth Management Group

“We have deep relationships in this business,” he says. “My mom has clients that go back as long as she’s been in the industry. And I have clients going back my entire 18-year career.” Jay says one of his best business decisions was to earn his Certified Investment Management Analyst® certification from the Wharton School. He is able to evaluate investment products, decide which are suitable, and determine how they fit and interact in a client’s portfolio. “That was really a game changer. And I use it every day in my practice.”

The advisors at Gagne Wealth Management Group follow a model that treats individual clients as minipension funds, investing primarily in privately managed accounts and allocating assets guided by forward-looking research. Rebalancing is a key element in client service. Primarily fee-based, the advisors at Gagne Wealth Management Group are on the same side of the table as their clients and actively involved in the investment process. Accessibility is key. Jay and Paula give clients their cell phone numbers and invite them to call at any time. Transparency is also essential. “I will always tell a client why we’re doing what we’re doing, and what fees and costs are involved. I’m a big believer in full disclosure,” Jay says. “That prevents a client from being surprised later. Integrity is most important in our profession.” Jay also believes the group’s service staff, Kelly Hudson, senior client associate, and Amy McNeil, client associate, are two of the best in the industry. “Clients love them,” he says.

COPING WITH SPRING FLOODING “In those situations, timing is everything,” he said. “The sooner we can dry those out April showers may bring May flowers, but professionally, the better chance we can save they can also cause costly flooding problems them. The damage can get quite bad, quite for unsuspecting homeowners. quick.” Writer / Nathan Lamb

The warning signs of trouble include discolored walls and ceilings, water stains and “bubbling” of paint or drywall, said Jim Krueger, who is a manager with Moore Restoration. He advised prompt action for homes showing those symptoms, saying water damage isn’t the sort of problem that goes away by itself.

DRAINAGE IS KEY

Krueger said the most common cause of springtime interior flooding is sump pump failure. For those who aren’t familiar with sump pumps, they are commonly used to remove water from basements susceptible to flooding. The pumps are placed in a

collection basin called the sump, often with a mechanism that activates the pump when water reaches a specific level. While sump pumps play a direct role in removing water from homes, Krueger said proper maintenance of a property’s drainage system is a key preventive measure. He listed foliage as a common culprit for problems, saying gutters clogged with leaves often can’t perform the important task of channeling drain water away from a home’s foundation and basement.

backup, in case the water starts rising and there’s a problem.

tend to focus on visible problems, such as wet carpet, instead of the bigger picture.

“It can be a brutal wait if it fails,” Porter said. “If you don’t prepare, you’re pretty much at its mercy, waiting for the plumber to come and fix it.”

“The biggest thing I think we see are people who try do it themselves, and they don’t realize the extent of the damage,” he said. “It’s not so much what you can see, but what you can’t see that becomes the problem.”

PREVENT BASEMENT PROBLEMS

Josh Lee is a service manager for Schuler Plumbing Inc., and he said the most common sign of looming sump pump trouble is debris accumulating in the basin. He suggested a simple test homeowners could try before the rainy season. “It is important, especially if it doesn’t get a lot of use, to go down there, fill it up with water and make sure it works, before it’s too late,” he said. A variety of optional features are available for sump pump owners. Lee said home security companies now offer a service where homeowners can be notified digitally of pump activation or problems. He listed batteries as another common accessory that can keep things running for up to eight hours during a power outage. While it costs extra, Lee said it can make sense for some homeowners.

Jim Krueger with Moore Restoration lists foliage in gutters as a common culprit to springtime flooding.

“Water is pressure and if that water has nowhere to go and it’s blocked, it’s going to find somewhere to go,” said Krueger. “Having proper drainage and grading around your house is only going to help prevent these kind of situations.” James Porter from Bolden’s Cleaning and Restoration recommended that drainage systems propel water at least 10 feet away from the foundation. He advised homeowners with sump pumps to check them regularly, saying they typically last five to seven years and it’s a good idea to have a

“If you have a finished basement, it’s definitely cheaper than a flooded basement or an insurance claim,” he said. Sump pumps aside, Porter said it’s a good idea for the whole family to know where the water mains are, in case an emergency shutoff is needed. He said a common cause of spring plumbing failure is when a garden hose is left attached to a spigot over the winter, which can cause water to freeze in the spigot pipe, putting pressure on that system and potentially causing it to leak or even break. “If you are going out to use the garden hose for the first time and if it was plugged in from last fall, that’s a red flag,” he said.

AVOIDING MOLD

Once a plumber fixes a leak, the next step is often to call a water restoration contractor to assess and repair the damage. Krueger said a common mistake is that homeowners

“A rule of thumb in our industry is that wet will always go to dry,” continued Krueger, saying wet carpet can often lead to wet drywall, baseboards and studs inside the wall. “That’s the part most people don’t seem to think about,” said Krueger. “When those get wet, that’s when you have the likelihood of mold and mildew developing.” Airborne exposure to residential mold can aggravate asthma, hay fever and allergies, along with causing coughing, congestion, runny nose and eye irritation, according to the Indiana State Department of Health. “All molds need water to grow,” according to the ISDH mold website. “Mold can grow almost anywhere there is water damage, high humidity or dampness. Removing the source of moisture, such as through repairs or dehumidification, is critical to preventing mold growth.” Explaining how that process works, Porter said removing the water is often only the first step, saying fans and dehumidifiers are typically needed to restore the air quality. Krueger listed a “musty” smell as a sign of bacteria growth, saying that’s often an indicator of costly hidden problems. He said insurance can be helpful there, but he added that homeowners shouldn’t wait until there’s a problem to find out exactly what’s covered by their policy. “Understanding your insurance coverage is very important,” he said. “Most insurance policies do not cover sump pumps or drain backups without an additional coverage on your policy.” “It’s usually pretty inexpensive, but it’s well worth it,” Krueger added. “It’s usually pennies on the dollar, to be honest with you.”

A LONG TIME COMING

HARBOUR TREES HOST OF THE 2014 U.S. WOMEN’S MID-AMATEUR CHAMPIONSHIP FOR THE WIN

What really makes the event, according to the staff at Harbour Trees, is the women. In order to compete, the women have to have a handicap not exceeding 9.4 and must be at least 25 years old, meaning that many have other jobs and even families.

Writer / Krista Shields

What started as a sparked interest for Harbour Trees members has become a reality. Host of the 2014 U.S. Women’s MidAmateur Championship, Harbour Trees Golf Club is gearing up for this major event, which will take place Sept. 6-11.

Werkley wrote a letter to the USGA nearly two years ago. They then came to evaluate the course, and it was announced in the fall of 2012 that the course would host the event.

Course Superintendent Ed Devlin says the course is really ideal for the event. “While it isn’t considered to be particularly “long” by today’s standards, Harbour Trees requires “I don’t think people realize this is huge well-placed tee shots and good second for Harbour Trees and the Noblesville shots into these Pete Dye-designed greens,” community as well as Hamilton County,” golf Devlin said. “The putting surfaces are truly pro Justin Werkley said. “This is a national the teeth and add the most challenge.” championship, and there are only 13 events like this a year, and one of them is here.” The course has had a program in place for Beginning Sept. 6, 132 women will play 36 holes in two days of stroke play. The top 64 golfers will then advance to the match play portion. The final day will involve two players competing for the national championship title.

the past several years that fits the parameters that the USGA requests when setting up for a national championship, meaning it does not have to face wild changes in order to run the championship in September. “We will certainly become more intensive as the championship approaches, but by and large Harbour Trees is ready as far as the golf course is concerned,” Devlin said.

According to the United States Golf Association, this is the first time Indiana has hosted the championship. Last year’s event Last year’s winner and Indiana’s own Julia was hosted at Biltmore Forest Country Club Potter contends that the course also has a in Asheville, N.C. finish that will make it interesting for the spectators, who can attend the event free of charge. “The most interesting aspect of this HOSTING WITH THE MOST course is the finishing hole is a par 3 over Though Harbour Trees has hosted water,” Potter said. “For any matches that go several state events, this is its first national to the 18th hole, this will be a true test of championship outside of the LPGA nerves for the players involved.” tournaments in the late 70s. It came about

“These ladies love this sport so much, they are willing to use vacation time/ personal time to play in this event,” Potter said. “It is this love that really helps define the fun and competitive atmosphere of this championship.” They don’t win any money. However, a medal for a national championship is at stake. According to Devlin, this is an opportunity to be “a part of the game at the purist level, which is important for the game’s growth as well as its preservation.” Potter, who will be defending her title this year, said, “I think it is every competitive golfer’s goal to win a USGA championship, and to be able to do that — it means the world to me.” Potter won the championship last year in an action-packed 19th-hole victory. “We look forward to Julia defending her title at Harbour Trees,” Werkley said.

THE NEED FOR HELP

The six-day event will require manpower and money. There are basically three ways to help with the event: volunteer, provide financial support and/or house one of the golfers. According to the co-chair for the event, Steve Baker, who has experience from hosting the 2009 Senior Open at Crooked Stick, this is a non-revenue-producing event, which means the community, even the county, has to get involved. “There are some wonderful opportunities for everyone in Hamilton County,” Baker said. “This is an expensive event to put on, so we would love to talk to anyone interested in supporting it financially.”

Aside from the golf outing that was held in September, there will be several opportunities, including a championship program. The club is looking for corporate and individual supporters. Sue Shields, co-chair, said there are a number of golfers who prefer to stay on or near the course due to transportation and practice reasons. “There are some [golfers] who do it because they enjoy meeting the members of the club,” Shields said. “And there are some, particularly the younger ones, who just enjoy a family atmosphere.” Harbour Trees hosted the LPGA Mayflower Classic from 1977 to 1980 and members opened their homes back then. Shields said members “rose to the occasion back then” and that they will do the same this time as well. “These are really wonderful women who are really wonderful players,” Shields said. Potter, who is now working for the Indiana Golf Office, said that the course, staff and volunteers are really the backbone of the championship. “I actually had private housing with a family, the Baileys, who volunteered for the event last year, and it was great to get a firsthand experience of all the time and talents these people put in to pull off a successful event,” Potter said. “I developed a newfound appreciation for all volunteers and staff both at this championship and others.” Werkley estimates that the event will require approximately 300 volunteers working in positions such as course marshals, transportation directors and caddies, to name a few. These volunteers will include members as well as outside members of the community. “Really, there is something for every volunteer,” Werkley said. Additional proceeds from the event will benefit the Noblesville Boys and Girls Club and the Indiana Golf Foundation. Anyone interested in helping should visit the club’s website at harbourtrees.com or call 317-877-3616.
