Current asked: What makes Zionsville so safe?Compiled by Anna Skinner email@example.com
The SafeWise Report, a national ranking site, recent-ly named Zionsville the saf-est city in Indiana for 2015. The report notes that there is a .08 percent chance of a violent crime happening per 1,000 people. Current asked Zionsville residents why they thought their town was named the safest.

Guatemala trip eye-opener for ZCC youth groupBy Mark Ambrogi • firstname.lastname@example.org
Annie Evans gained a fresh perspective as part of her Zionsville Christian Church youth
group trip to Guatemala.“I was out of my comfort
zone but I learned so much about what being a global citizen is all about and how my life is so different,” the 15-year-old Evans said. “I’m so privileged to be in the situa-
tion I’ve been in for my entire life. It was an amazing experi-ence to learn about a culture so very differnet from my own with a whole different set of problems. Thinking about problems that are your own and how I can solve them was eye-opening.”
Evans, who will be a junior at Culver Girls Academy, was part of a ZCC youth group mis-sion trip. There were eight adults and 16 stu-dents from ZCC divided up in two visits. Evans was in the first group, which returned June 26. The group was let by ZCC youth pastor Jim Wilkinson and wife, Melissa, who were there for two weeks this summer.
Wilkerson said the mission trip was a People to People pilgrimage, as part of Global Ministries.
“It’s a new kind of mission trip where we go down and try to establish relationships with groups in certain areas,” Wilkinson said. “We met with a lot of different groups and looked on how to develop a partnership where we’re learning from them and they’re learning from us. We might see some things we can do to help them and they may see some things to help us. It’s more of partnership.”
The ZCC group, which also helped with some
jobs and activities, were guests of Ecumenical Christian Council of Guatemala, which oversees human rights issues. One group Wilkinson said they are interested in helping was Mayan Weavers.
“It’s a group we felt in the area we live people identify with craftsmanship and handmade things are appreciated and we live in a com-munity which can afford those kind of things,” Wilkinson said. “They’re trying to give women work and income for the family.”
Wilkinson said they could work with Weavers on raising funds for their own building.
“They could send their goods up here for us to sell,” said Wilkinson, adding the Weavers and ZCC could benefit from sale proceeds.
The ZCC groups also learned about Guate-malan’s violent history. The group visited the National Police Archives, which had documents regarding human rights violations during the Gua-
temalan Civil War, which ran from 1960 to 1996.“The sub-government group was investigat-
ing things that maybe the government was not looking to be uncovered,” Evans said. “They found this warehouse in 1997 and there was 80 million documents and they’ve only gone through a third of the documents.”
Wilkinson said there was an estimated 250,000 Guatemalans that were killed or went missing during the war.
The ZCC group’s bus driver, a former teacher, talked about how teachers were targeted be-cause of their political beliefs.
“He said he had to go into hiding for periods of time and said they would pull teachers out of the school that he was in and they would find the bodies the next day,” Wilkinson said. “At that time it was dangerous to be a teacher because of the opposition they had against the government.”
“The traffic isn’t as much as in Indianapolis, and the commu-nity is nice and quiet.” –Betty Thones.
“We’re small and it’s mostly college grads in this high aca-demic community. It’s not typically the type from Zionsville to go around stealing. I think it’s the make-up of the com-munity.” –Gerard and Martha Resler

Family faces tough medical billsBy Heather Lusk • email@example.com
It’s been a long road for Jude Miles. The 10-year-old has had more than 30 surgeries
and procedures in his short life (“I only count the ones that make him bleed,” quips his
mother, Abby Miles) and he isn’t done yet.Jude was born with Apert syndrome, a rare
condition that causes abnormal development of the skull. The defective gene causing Apert syndrome can allow the skull bones to fuse together prematurely, and as the brain contin-ues to grow pressure is put on the skull and face. Jude was less than 3 months old when he underwent his first cranial vault, and the doctor was unsure that he would survive.
Later surgeries relieved pressure on his skull, reshaped his face, separated his fingers fused at birth, and addressed a lung not con-nected to his airway – unrelated to Apert syn-drome but Abby said, “Jude likes to do things with an extra flair.”
But young Jude’s most recent major sur-gery has created a pinch on the family and prompted Miles to start a GoFundMe account to make ends meet.
The family’s insurance covers 80 percent of their medical expenses, and for a long

time Jude was covered by a federal Medicaid needs-based waiver. Due to a recent clerical error, however, his coverage was dropped and there is a 15-year waiting list.
This surgery is the first since the loss of Medicaid and the family was shocked at their estimated portion of the bill, roughly $35,000.

As a parent, you are your child's �rst and most important teacher. You know your child best, and your input should be considered by the school at every opportunity. Parents frequently do not know what their children's rights are in terms of the education and services offered by the schools, and they often can feel intimidated by school staffs. Your child has the right to a free appropriate public education under federal law. If you suspect that your child may have a disability, let your child’s school know. Parents have the right to be involved with every decision regarding their child’s education, including whether your child may need special education services. If your child is struggling behaviorally or academically, his school may be required to do an evaluation to see if he quali�es for special services. Trust your instincts: you know your child best. The worst thing to do is nothing. If you wait to seek help for your child, his frustration and sense of failure could continue to break down his self-esteem, while the window of time for meaningful intervention narrows.
Each child qualifying for services are required by federal law to receive an Individualized Education Program, or IEP. IEPs are put together by a team of school staff and schools are required by law to include parents in this process. However, parents often feel as though they have little input to their child’s IEP because they are unaware of what their child’s rights are. This can have a serious impact and their child's progress can be impaired by a lack of knowledge. "What we have is what you get" is not what the federal and state laws provide. Schools receiving federal funding are required, by law, to devise an IEP for each child quali�ed for services based on that child's individual needs (not on the school's staf�ng or budget problems) that is reasonably calculated to confer a
meaningful educational bene�t.
Anything less than that does not comply with the federal law, and is actionable through a due process proceeding.Examples of how schools commit violations:• Failure to find a child eligible for services despite evidence that the child was struggling academically or behaviorally.• Failure to develop an appropriate IEP based on the child's individual needs.• Failure to implement the IEP as written.• Failure to involve parents to meaningfully participate in the IEP development process.• Failure to prevent punishment of the child for actions or inactions that are manifestations of the child's disability (caused by the child's disability).• Failure to train staff and aides in the child's areas of disability.• Predetermining placement and services before the case conference committee meeting.• Failure to conduct necessary evaluations of the child.• Failure to provide education and services in the least restrictive environment.• Failure to offer extended school year services to the child.• Failure to allow a child with special needs to participate in extracurricular activities to the same extent as his non-disabled peers. At Hollingsworth & Zivitz, P.C., our team has the experience, the understanding, and the compassion to assist with your family law needs. If you have questions or concerns regarding divorce, custody, support, or any other family law concerns contact our �rm at 317.DIVORCE or visit our website at www.hzlegal.com.

Time for a Yart Sale Fly-in to raise funds Aug. 1By Michelle Williams
People who own sports cars and mo-torcycles often drive them around for fun
— and so do peo-ple who
own small aircraft. On Aug. 1, Montgomery Aviation is hosting a fly-in and open house at India-napolis Executive Airport, where pilots can choose as a destina-tion for a recreational stop.
The day will be filled with fun activi-ties for pilots and the community alike, but this year is also the 9th year that Montgomery Aviation is hosting the event to benefit the Down Syndrome Indiana organization. Last year, Mont-gomery Aviation attracted over 2,200 community members and raised over $20,000 for the cause. This year, they aim to raise that aggressive amount once again.
The community is invited to come and enjoy festival activities like bounce hous-es, face-painting, magic shows, and bal-loon animals. In addition, proceeds from
a pancake breakfast and hot dog lunch will support the cause. Huey helicopter and airplane rides will be available for all ages starting as low as $20 per person.
There will also be the traditional air race.
“They are usually some inter-estingly designed and painted airplanes,” said Sean White, director of marketing and busi-ness development for Montgom-ery Aviation.
“Often people don’t just stop and come through the gates and
check us out. So we like to give them that opportunity each year to come see what the airport looks like, what hap-pens here and what aviation’s all about,” he said. He stated that the community is welcome to visit anytime, even just to have a picnic lunch on the lawn to watch planes as they come and go.
The annual event is one of the biggest fundraisers for Down Syndrome Indiana.
Individuals or corporate sponsors wishing to support the cause should visit montgomeryaviation.net or contact Sean White at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Shari Black with some of her “yart.” (Submitted photo)
By Heather Lusk • email@example.com
On sunny weekends, on the corner of Main and Ash Streets is a sign that may require a second
glance.“Yart Sale” it announces. Canvases with beach scenes,
Indiana barns and animals are strung across the yard, along with reclaimed wood signs and paint-ed windows, all works by the artist who lives on the property.
Shari Black’s yard art also includes sculpture or painting on less conventional items.
“I can’t take it with me,” she said. “So if I can find a home of someone who really likes and re-ally wants it, it’s better than holding onto it.”
Black discovered her love of creating art at a Wine and Canvas outing with her daughter a few years ago. She returned each month until the expense compelled her to create paintings on her own.
“I thought, ‘Where has this been all my life?’” said Black. “But life takes you down different paths.”
“Every chapter in life prepares you for the next chapter in life,” she said.
She spent one of her life’s chapters in the Bahamas and Florida, and much of her inspiration comes from those memories. She includes birds
in her paintings to represent the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.
She’s willing to try different things with her art, painting people, dogs and abstract pieces. But her favorite images are those with palm trees, seascapes and sand. Often she will take a photo from a magazine and recreate it, such as a recent painting of a marine ray.
“I do enjoy taking a white canvas or a barn wood and brushing color on it,” said Black.
The divorced Black has learned to “let it go” and create her own space through her art. “This is my canvas, this is my world and I get to do whatever I want, paint it however I want.”
What began as a hobby has become therapeutic.
“I’m getting to a point where I’m happy al-ways,” she said.

School board recap Compiled by Anna Skinner
On the evening of July 13, the Zionsville Community Schools Board of School Trustees held a meeting.
What happened: The board approved the purchase of four new school buses for $359,208.
What happened: All five ZCS elementary schools were recognized as Common Sense Digital Citi-zenship Certified Schools.
What happened: The Indiana Department of Education requested the board’s input on what to do regarding ZCS’s A through F grade ratings considering that the ISTEP test and standards were changed recently and there is not enough data to conduct a rating. This is to form a sys-tem for the state to grade school systems.
What it means: This allows ZCS to replace two of the current buses and use the other two in a reserve fleet.
What it means: The certification was given on the fact that all elementary schools educate students to be safe, smart and ethical digital citizens. Students are prepared to use technology safely, which will provide them with many opportunities for the future.
What it means: The board was given 12 options to choose from and suggest one to return to the DOE. Out of the 12, the board voted for option 1, which entailed as-signing no A-F grade for the 2015-16 school year and carrying over the same grade system from the 2013-14 school year.
“Based on our view, there’s a huge validity question about using this year’s test outcomes for this very public accountability scale,” said Shari Alexander Richey, Board of School Trustees president. “We didn’t feel like any of the options other than option 1 treated this situation properly.”
Despite the board’s recommendation, their approval of option 1 was only a sugges-tion, not a resolution. The DOE will decide the final option to use once they are notified of the board’s suggestion.

Students returning to Stonegate Elemen-tary after summer break can expect to learn
a little more about elephants this year. That is because Kyla McDaniel – or Mrs. McDaniel,
as her third grade students know her – has just taken a trip to Nairobi, Kenya. McDaniel was one of the 100 recipients of the 2015 Lilly Endowment Teacher Creativity Fellowships, and her award sent her to Africa to be among the elephants.
“I have loved elephants for as long as I can remember. I had watched a piece on the news on the David Sheldrick Elephant Orphanage and fell in love with what they do,” Mcdanial said. She applied for a grant through the Lilly Endowment with a plan to visit the orphanage and learn more about elephants. Her plans became a reality in June.
The Lilly Endowment aims to award K-12 educators opportunities to recharge person-ally and professionally with the hopes that they will better engage and challenge their students in turn. McDaniel already has a plan for how she intends to do just that.
“I’m going to have my class pick an el-ephant that we can all foster together and
keep track of,” she said. Once the class adopts their own baby elephant, the orphanage will send a newsletter with educational informa-tion about the animals. McDaniel also intends to organize a supply drive for a one-room school she visited on her trip.
Prior to her trip, McDaniel created a blog at mrsmcdanielephant.wordpress.com where her students and colleagues could keep tabs on her African journey. McDaniel posted images and descriptions of her activities over the course of her travels.
While in Kenya, McDaniel was able to inter-act directly with the young elephants during their mud baths and as they were readapting to a life in the wild. She met one foster ele-phant who was intensely shy of humans after having seen his mother killed by poachers. She believes the elephant will always remem-ber his traumatic experience and talked about the truth behind the phrase “an elephant never forgets.”
McDaniel will certainly never forget her ex-perience with the majestic creatures, and she will undoubtedly return to school in the fall with a deep enthusiasm to share knowledge and inspiration with her students.
Community members interested in support-ing McDaniel’s school supply drive may con-tact her at KMcDaniel@zcs.k12.in.us.

Plan commission recap Compiled by Anna Skinner
What happened: At the July 20 Zionsville Plan Commission meeting, Tim Oaks of Beazer Homes again approached the commission about Hampshire, the 322-lot subdivision originally approved by the commission on Oct. 16, 2006. Oaks tweaked some of the language in the commitments, which was asked of him when the commission approved the subdivision to continue with plans last month. Oaks said they also formatted a declaration of covenants between the Meyer family, which has been very active in the subdivision’s involvement with the commission.
What happened: A petition to rezone 6.85 acres from a special use development district to a planned unit development for mixed use that consists of offices, government, retail, and public use of space and trail was granted a continuance until the November meeting.
What happened: Discussion on the automatic time period for development use plats being established continued from last month’s meeting, was again continued until next month’s meeting.
What happened: The Interactive Academy had a petition for a development plan amendment to provide for planned improvements such as paved parking, building additions and new free standing structures.
What it means: The covenants, according to Oaks, provide protection to the Meyer family as no chang-es are to be made without its consent. The covenants further protect the Meyer family and its property from the development of the subdivision. The commission discussed the minutes from last month’s meeting and agreed to approve these covenants as long as Oaks tweaked the language a bit more.
What it means: The item was continued to allow the project to work through financial conversation and other items related in redeveloping the site.
What it means: The commission continued the discussion so the two missing members could also provide input on the docket.
What it means: The master site plan for the construction of the building in 2002 has included all up-dates until now, where a fitness center is wanted. Interactive Academy created a new master site plan to include all possible updates for the future to be approved by the commission. The new plan was approved unanimously, contingent upon staff being able to work out the easements satisfactory to the town regarding pathways to cross the front of the academy.

Meet Andrew Kossack, The epi family father
• Grew up in Lawrence Township • Attended church in Zionsville growing up• Graduated from Lawrence North High School in 1999• Graduated from Butler University in 2003• Graduated from IU Law School in 2007
He was recently appointed as Commissioner of The Indiana Department of Revenue. Current asked: What do you hope to accomplish in your time as Commissioner?
A: “Governor Pence expects us to continue to improve the way we serve Hoosier taxpayers through modernization of our systems and processes. We are currently implementing the tax simplification legislation – Senate Enrolled Act 441 – that the governor made part of his legislative agenda this year and signed into law in May,” stated Andrew. “That bill streamlines the tax code, eliminates a number of outdated and unnecessary credits and deductions, and clarifies laws that have created confusion for taxpayers. Most of the reforms in SEA 441 came from proposals first explored during the Governor’s Tax Simplification and Competitiveness Conference, which was held in June of 2014.”

According to a 2013 study by the Center for Disease Control, food allergies in children increased by 50 percent from 1997 to 2011 with no clear explanation. Zionsville
parents, Andrew and Lauren Kos-sack, have not one, but two children with severe food allergies and have
learned first-hand how allergies affect children. Their firstborn, Christian, was diagnosed at a year-and-
a-half old. Each time Christian would eat solid foods he would gag and throw up. At the suggestion of Andrew’s sister, a developmental therapist, the couple made ar-rangements for their son to be evaluated. An occupational therapist was hired to work with Christian.
After months of treatment Lauren tried to feed Chris-tian with a new texture – scrambled eggs. The reaction was immediate, Christian broke out in hives anywhere he had touched the egg. Six weeks later the family met with an allergist who conducted a skin test, a blood test and listened to the family’s story. The doctor gave Lauren an epipen because the severity of egg allergies can vary.
Lauren was also concerned about the possibility of their 8-week-old son, Atticus, developing food allergies.
“I’ll never forget holding him and asking the doctor what the chances were that Atticus would have it. He said statistics say typically only one child in a family has food allergies and if, for some reason, another child in the family has food allergies they tend be allergic to fewer things. Well, we’re totally the opposite,” said Lauren.
Atticus was diagnosed with allergies to dairy, soy, pea-nuts and tree nuts. He outgrew the soy allergy but then developed allergies to eggs and sesame.
Introducing new foods to their sons can be a scary experience. Always looking for new foods
for her children, Lauren once tried to feed Atticus hummus. Within
bites he began reacting to the food. Lauren quickly administered a dose of Benadryl but noticed no change in Atticus’ condition. She made the call every parent dreads to 9-1-1.
“He seemed stable and was breath-ing fine. I was looking for a blue face but none of that was happening. The para-medics arrived and took one look at him and agreed … he is obviously uncomfort-able but appears to be stable. Little did we know that his body turning bright red was an indicator that his blood pressure was dropping really quickly which is the definition of anaphylactic shock,” Lauren said.
In the ER, a nurse ran in with an epipen shot. “Within seconds he went from being lifeless and
limp to trembling from the epinephrine but he was alert. Within 20 minutes he was laughing,” Lauren said.
That scary trip to the ER ignited Lauren’s passion to create a blog titled The Epi Family in hopes of helping other families with newly diagnosed chil-dren. She shares their story, how they have learned to cope and recipes that she has created or modi-fied for their lifestyle.
“I felt like [the blog] was a great ministry for me to be that person I never had for other moms,” Lauren said.
The Kossack family has learned to see the light in their own less-than-ideal situation.
“I think this gives us more of an appreciation for life itself,” said Andrew Kossack, father of the kids. “We have had reactions where we could have lost them if they didn’t have the right medications.”

It’s no secret we’ve been inundated with rain this summer. It affects plans for so many. The deluge of “liquid sunshine” plays havoc on multiple fronts. There is so much clay around these parts that the water seeps in only so far before it begins to pool. And so it came to pass, unfortunately, that the Traders Point Hunt Charity Horse Show, previously scheduled to run from Aug. 4-9, was cancelled last week as a result of what the rain left behind. Primarily, that would be an overly soggy Wild Air Farms, where the event has enjoyed an ultra-successful, 37-year run. It’s far too dangerous to erect tents and portable stables, as was the finding of Town of Zionsville officials. Can you imagine driving tent stakes and other support or anchoring mechanism into what in some places amounts to pudding? The cancellation, without question, was an excellent call. Yes, we wanted it all to come off without a hitch, for it is an event we enjoy and sponsor. It’s better this way. Having talked to the show’s local leadership, we now know this was a gut-wrenching decision, but the only logical decision that could be made. There was no need to risk the lives of humans and horses, or property, for that matter, by forcing the staging of the event. It was a decision made in the name of safety, and it was a smart one at that. The show, which was to have benefitted Riley Hospital for Children, draws from all our communities as well as from several states beyond. Knowing the organiz-ers and the decision makers at Wild Air, we believe we are safe to assume the show will rise and ride again in far better conditions. At the very least, we hope that will be the case.
The proper callfor safety’s sake

Blecht. I can’t believe I’m writing this, but I’m so done with summer vacation. It’s true, my friends, June and July haven’t material-
ized into that magical time of peaceful relaxation that I’ve dreamt about since January.
Perhaps it’s the Noah’s-Ark-worthy rain, al-though I prefer yard floods to scorching heat, but I actually think my intolerance is due to the remarkable lack of routine here at Chez Wilson.
Yes, we started out with a plan. Chores, Amish Day, and Game Night all made it onto the calendar, and kids’ classes, camps and hobbies filled the early days with as much suburban crisscrossing as this dance mom cared to orchestrate. My husband, Doo, and I even managed a couple of short trips sans minions where we remembered that we do, in fact, like each other.
But we never fell into any sort of regular, daily schedule, and as a former military ca-det/mother of twin infants, my normal high-octane, high-efficiency M.O. toppled faster than our latest JENGA tower. Our teens have been sleeping until noon, eating at all hours, and playing video games until well past mid-night. Peppered throughout are last-second requests for rides, laundry, and recipe ingre-dients. I feel like I’m caught in a rip-tide off the North Carolina coast without a life jacket or, more importantly, a shark baton. And I just want to lie on the beach!
Granted, I don’t miss grading Algebra tests or creating edible brown bag lunches from mystery meat and a can of mandarin or-anges, but I clearly do not function properly without time constraints and a mile-long To Do list. To wit, if I have eight hours to write an article, it’s not going to happen; I’ll putter around the house delaying closet clean-outs and then watch six straight episodes of Breaking Bad. But if I only have thirty min-utes between Color Guard drop-off and Tae Kwon Do pick-up on a school day, I can easily crank out a Pulitzer-worthy masterpiece.
So instead of feeling rejuvenated, I’m just feeing unaccomplished. August, and the beautiful ridged schedule it brings, can’t come soon enough! Peace out.

Schedule desire strong
Commentary by Terry Anker
The purchase of our first home included with it a vintage refrigerator nearly original to the 70-year-old residence. We lovingly referred to it as the DeSoto for its curved top and liberal use of chrome deco-styled trim. It reminded us of the state-of-the-art vehicles built to satisfy the pent-up demand immediately following the merciful end of World War II. And much like the auto we imagined it to emulate, the door was comprised of an abundance of steel and the sound, if closed with great vigor, quite satisfactorily replicated that of a slamming car door.
My parents, concerned for our newlywed well-being, surprised us with the gift of a current model not long after we moved-in. Even as our hopes for the place were boundless, our budget was not. As I recall, Mom and Dad even threw in some food – just to get us started. But, I couldn’t bring myself to retire the DeSoto. With a much stronger (and younger) back then than
now, I moved the displaced behemoth to the basement to fill with tasty beverages and the occasional overflow from our proud new appliance in the kitchen.
Some years later, our fortunes had im-proved but the DeSoto was still doing yeo-man’s work. In the frequent power outages that often accompany older homes with even older infrastructure, we could count on the thick walls and insulation to keep con-tents cool for hours – if not days – on end. I was proud of the DeSoto (and maybe a little smug about my self-proclaimed thrift). Then a particularly environmentally-minded friend chastised me pointing out that a new device would pay for itself with electricity savings in a single year. When is it best to let go of the past – and how do we deter-mine the worth of our sentimentality?

Commentary by Dick Wolfsie
Our kitchen renovation required cleaning out several drawers filled with exotic spices,
most of which I had never heard of: anardana, advieh, amchoor powder and ajwain, to name a
few. (Yes, my wife had them in alphabetical order.) Mary Ellen bought these when she went through her, “I am going to learn to be a gourmet cook” stage, the week after we got married. The stage left the following Monday.
Mary Ellen thought this would be a good time to wean me off my addiction to mustard and ketchup, two essential ingredients that the great chefs of the world have, inexplica-bly, eliminated from their food preparation. There are occasional recipes with a touch of gourmet mustard, but when was the last time Wolfgang Puck smacked the bottom of an in-verted ketchup bottle and drizzled his Chicken Kiev with Heinz 57?
During the transfer to the garage fridge, I left a jar of mayonnaise on the storage shelf overnight. Without the slightest hesitation, Mary Ellen tossed it in the garbage, but the next day I fished it out and slathered some on my sandwich. Mary Ellen panicked. “Are
you crazy? Why not just use it to make potato salad so we can wipe out the entire neighbor-hood at the summer block party?”
The mayonnaise jar did say “REFRIGERATE AFTER OPENING,” as well as providing a hotline number for people with emergency mayon-naise questions. I didn’t know if I was calling a deli or New Delhi.
“Yes,” said the representative, “I get hus-bands calling all day long with this ques-tion. Commercial mayonnaise is loaded with acid-killing bacteria. And the eggs used are pasteurized. It’s perfectly safe, despite what every wife thinks.”
“So, I shouldn’t throw it out?”“Of course you should throw it out! A hus-
band can’t win a mayonnaise argument.”He was right. I didn’t tell Mary Ellen about
my phone call. It would have meant Hellman’s to pay.

Street Dance this week on Main
By Michelle Williams • email@example.com
On July 31, Carmel will be graced with a performance from distinguished international ballet artists Irina Dvoro-
venko and Maxim Beloserkovsky. The dancers will be in town to give a master class to ballet students
from around the country – students who will be given an exclusive opportunity to perform alongside the former prin-cipal dancers of American Ballet Theatre.
The performance will be part of a fundraising event, A Night at the Barre, benefitting the Indiana Ballet Conserva-tory. IBC is a not-for-profit ballet school founded in 2010, and is hosting its annual summer intensive program for pre-professional ballet dancing students.
Students from around the globe come to Carmel to seek pre-professional training from the world-class IBC faculty during these summer intensives.
“You want to get as much as you can throughout your summer intensive to have that edge you need at the start
of the school year,” said Missy Rust, IBC director of market-ing and outreach.
“IBC is thrilled to bring this type of celebration of dance and education experience to the community. We are deeply grateful for the support we continue to receive as we cul-tivate the next generation of dancers right here in Carmel,” said IBC founding artistic director Alyona Yakovleva-Randall. Yakovleva-Randall is an award-winning ballet dancer who has studied and worked in Russia, Korea and the United States.
IBC will host a special VIP event prior to the production, and will raffle off several items including a ski trip, tickets to the Center for the Performing Arts and dancewear. Funds raised will be used to provide scholarships to IBC students and to complete studio upgrades such as installing new bars on the walls.
The performance will take place at 7 p.m. at the Tarking-ton Theatre at the Center of the Performing Arts. Tickets may be purchased at www.IndianaBalletConservatory.org, and are $30 for general admission.

‘Los Lonely’ tickets now on sale
The band, performing in Carmel Oct. 3. (Submit-ted photo)
By Joseph Knoop email@example.com
Grammy Award-winning artists Los Lonely Boys will be making a special appearance at
the Warehouse in Carmel for an evening of acoustic perfor-mances on Oct. 3.
Two performances are scheduled at 6 p.m. and 9 p.m. Tickets for both all-ages perfor-mances are $45 each in advance of the show and $55 for ticket purchases made the day of. Ticket sales open to the public Aug. 1 at noon.
The American Chicano rock trio, comprised of brothers Henry, Jojo and Ringo Garza, released their most recent studio album “Rev-elation” in 2014, which hit #42 on the Billboard U.S. Rock chart. The album was labeled the band’s “most naturalistic disc” since their ear-liest albums by the Austin Chronicle.
“We decided to call this album ‘Revelation’ because we want to make music that reveals something to people about their lives and their world,” Jojo Garza said.
The trio are most well known for the single “Heaven,” which rocketed to #1 on Billboard charts and led to two Grammy Award nomina-tions and one win in the 47th Grammy Awards
in 2005.“Revelation” is the group’s first recording
since brother Henry Garza experienced a severe injury after falling from a stage in Los Angeles in early 2013.
“We nearly lost Henry, man, and that was a big change for us,” Jojo said.
Jojo added that that sense of family and brotherhood is what the band tries to pass on through the music they make.
Tickets can be purchased at liveforthemu-sic.com. The Warehouse venue is located at 254 1st Ave SW.
Extra veggies? Make thisCommentary by Ceci Martinez
One of the many wonderful things that my family enjoys in Indiana is biking its country back roads and being touched by the gener-osity of folks tending their vegetable gardens. Last week I grabbed my bike for a leisure ride and passing by in front of a gardener I said, ‘Having fun?’ He replied: ‘Yes, but I’ve got so many vegetables!’ I told him to share them with his neighbors, and he generously gave me some. I couldn’t get back home fast enough to make this phenomenal summer salad.

Robinson brings acoustic show to The Warehouse July 31
By Joseph Knoop firstname.lastname@example.org
Rich Robinson, founder, songwriter and guitarist for multi-platinum rock band The
Black Crowes will hold a solo acous-tic performance at
the Warehouse in Carmel July 31.Robinson, who formed the band with
his brother while attending high school in Georgia, has seen an extensive career touring worldwide with his various acts, releasing three solo albums and a suite of EPs and singles. Through it all, Robinson credits the character of his brand of rock for keeping things interesting.
“The Crowes are the Crowes, and everyone in that band had their own per-sonality musically,” Robinson said. “People that grew up and listen to music, we filter that music through our life experiences, what we hear, and then it comes out. The more character your music has, the more unique it is.”
Robinson’s latest album, “The Wood-stock Sessions Vol. 3,” was released last year. A collection of songs recorded in front of a live audience at Applehead Studio, Robinson channeled a philosophy of solid musicianship that’s led to his multiple successes, by beginning with the bare bones of a song.
“I write that way,” Robinson said. “Most of the songs I write are written acousti-cally. To me, the belief I’ve always had is that if a song works in its most basic form, then it’s a good song.”
Like any authentic rocker, not think-ing about the next step can be as key as planning out each one, Robinson said.
“It needs to be something that moves
me and something that will come naturally,” Robinson said. “The art or the music always dictates what the record will be. Whatever comes out comes out. That’s how I always am.”
Tickets for Rich Robinson’s performance are $30 in advance and $35 the day of. For more information, visit liveforthemusic.com.

Anne Johnson teaches kids, tots, expectant and new mothers yoga at Simply Yoga in Zionsville. As a 200 RYT registered yoga teacher, engineer, and children’s book author, Anne enjoys writing and sharing “adult ideas” in a way
that makes them accessible to children.
Commentary by Anne Johnson
Namaste! My name is Anne, and I teach kids yoga at Simply Yoga in Zionsville. Yoga helps
us connect our breath and body to steady and focus our minds. Join me here each month to learn about
a yoga pose, its benefits, and even give it a try yourself.
On a clear night, when the sun has set, the dark sky becomes a canvas for the sparkly map of the stars. The North Star, known as Polaris, is famous for holding nearly still while the entire northern sky moves around it. Po-laris marks the way due north and is one of the brightest stars in our sky.
Shine true like the North Star yourself. Stand with your feet wider then your hips. Reach your arms straight out to your sides,
spreading your fingers and taking up lots of space. If you practice star pose facing Polaris - due north - your left hand will point west and your right hand will point east.
Follow your breath in star pose by adding the “connection breath” series. Breathe out and bring your hands into your heart; palms touch. Breathe in and lift your hands up to the sky over your head. Breathe out and return your hands to your heart; bringing the sky down to you.

From a drab sea of blue stone and under used space to seven fabulously designed
outdoor living spaces, Carmel-based Sur-roundings by Nature-
Works+ transformed this Northside home’s backyard living area in four short months.
Homeowners, Steve and Courtenay Wagner, knew they wanted to upgrade their backyard to maximize the outdoor living area and utilize the space year around. They felt they had a great canvas to work with but weren’t sure how to bring their vision to life on that can-vas. “We loved how owner Randy Sorrell and registered landscape architect Eric Beard took the time to get to know our family and how we planned to use the space. They made us feel comfortable and at ease with the whole process from planning and design to instal-lation and the finished project,” said Steve Wagner.
The job had potential to be a phased proj-ect, but the Wagners elected to knock it all out at once in order to be able to utilize their new luxury outdoor space as soon as possible for family events and entertaining. The project included rehab to their blue stone patio, along

with a considerable expansion, a stamped concrete “rug” insert to echo the ribbon around the pool, lanais loaded with ameni-ties, and a brick and mortar formal fireplace. Also adding interest were several pergolas, formal limestone and mortar walls with raised planters, a rescued and repurposed aggregate walk highlighted with blue stone, and a deck landing for transition to the lower woods in
the rear of the home. Final touches included landscape lighting, drip irrigation and low maintenance “triple threat” landscaping that included plants with four-season interest and tons of color.
“We’ve been involved in smaller projects, larger projects, more complex and maybe even more elaborate, but the Wagner’s project es-pecially resonated with us,” said Surroundings
owner Randy Sorrell.With over 20 years in industry, Surround-
ings is passionate about their profession and is pleased to celebrate the Wagner family as not only the Project of the Decade, but Customer of the Decade as well! Their sophis-ticated project yielded multiple living spaces that each fit perfectly with the home’s lush surrounding nature, including a canopy of mature trees and a lower trail with a winding creek and meadow.
In continued celebration of their clients and staying home and being moved, Surroundings is launching a fun on-going social campaign where their customers can share pictures from their gorgeous and relaxing luxury out-door living spaces featuring flat Randy and Eric. Monthly a winner will be chosen from client photo submissions for a Surroundings prize pack. To download your flat Randy and Eric for backyard fun visit www.carmelluxury-landscape.com

For generations, people have enjoyed the soft, warm atmosphere that carpeting creates
in their homes. But even the most diligent homeowner can only prolong the life of a carpet
for so long. Carpet doesn’t last forever. You’ll know it’s time to invest in a remodel if you start noticing worn patches, snags, wrinkles or matting on your carpet fibers. One, two or any combination of these signs indicates that the carpet and padding are nearing the end of their life and it may be time to investigate some new options.
First, let’s take a minute to go over some carpet vocabulary, just in case you are unfamiliar with carpeting lingo. “Pile” refers to the length and density of the carpet fibers, a construction characteristic that directly af-fects the carpet’s look, texture and durability.
There are several main types of car-pet styles. Plush carpet is probably the most popular style on the home market today. The pile is designed to be flat, which makes the surface of plush carpet feel more cushiony and soft to walk across. There are also tex-tured plush designs, which are more resistant to vacuum marks and footprints. Frieze car-

pets are made from twisted, textured fibers that are both elegant, durable and an excellent choice for high traffic areas. Berber carpets have seen resurgence in popularity lately due to the carpet’s clean, professional look.
After deciding on the carpet style, you will have to also choose a material. Carpet can be made from a variety of materials, such as wool, nylon, polyester, and polypropylene.
The first step in any flooring decision calls for you to really think about the function of the room. Tailor your choice based on the
amount of foot traffic and activity the car-pet will be exposed to. The best carpet choice will not only look great, but also will last for years to come.
