BRVA President Mark Wolf and Executive Director Brooke Klejnot answer questions about the status of the parking structure under construction.

Quarterly BRVA meeting held at Art Center By Alan Hague

LAVA offers great food and hookah on Guilford By Alan Hague The location of 6308 Guilford Avenue, historically known for the Patio Nightclub, is now home to Lava. If the weather is good, the sliding windows will be open all along Guilford giving the restaurant/hookah lounge a sidewalk dining feel. Don't think of Lava as just a hookah lounge. The middle-eastern menu is complete and all of the food is made from scratch. The chef at Lava has 20 years of experience in Lebanese and Armenian cuisine. During the interview we sampled everything from hummus, baba ghanouj, and meat and cheese roll appetizers to kabobs and gyros. It was all 6308 Guilford Ave delicious. Prices range from $4 to $19. [G4 on map] Lava is also a hookah lounge, although you can (317) 726-5282 eat here even if you don't smoke the hookah. The new Indiana smoking ordinance is in effect and that means Lava is 21 and over. Hookah bars can continue under the new law, but all must restrict to 21 and up. Omar Barham, owner, explained that Lava is not like the typical hookah bar found in the states. It is more like what is found in the middle-east, modern and with great food. Omar is as passionate about providing the proper hookah experience as he is about the quality of the dining experience. Omar also has a passion for cars and owns Coast To Coast Imports. "We make our own blend of tobacco," said Omar describing the 40 flavors offered. "No other hookah bar in the country does that. We start with the tobacco leaf, add the essences, and it is packed only for us in the middle-east." Lava is open daily from 11am to 2am. There are DJ and belly dancing nights. The restaurant is also available for Omar and Hailey Brooke Barham of Lava. private parties, and with the free WiFi, Lava makes a great place to bring the laptop for a working lunch.


The quarterly public meeting for the Broad Ripple Village Association (BRVA) was held on July 24 at the Indianapolis Art Center. Almost 100 people attended the meeting. The larger than normal turnout was due to the parking/mixed-use structure update on the agenda. BRVA President Mark Wolf called the meeting to order at 7pm and introduced the new Executive Director Brooke Klejnot. First on the agenda was a report from Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department (IMPD) Commander Koppel. Koppel discussed the July 4th shooting and the increase in cruising and loitering in the Village. Cruising has been a problem at many locations in the city. As the problem is alleviated at each location, the cruisers move to another spot. That spot is becoming Broad Ripple. Koppel explained that IMPD will step up enforcement to move it out of the already congested Broad Ripple area. Next on the agenda was Keystone Construction to answer questions about the mixed-use parking structure that is under construction at College Avenue and Westfield Boulevard. Little has changed from the original design presented months ago. The changes made allow for flood control pieces to fit into the structure in case of a major flood. This is a concept similar to the levee walls that run by the Indianapolis Art Center and the levee proposed to cross the canal south of 56th Street. Those levee walls have sliding gates and/or sections that are installed when flood waters are approaching. Also on hand to answer questions about the parking project was the Department of Public Works (DPW). It was announced that there will be trees planted on the College side, new sidewalks installed, new crosswalks, stop lights, and that the north corner will be more pedestrian-friendly by removing the currently aboveground traffic control equipment. The Q and A portion of the presentation then turned ugly. Questions and comments were angrily shouted from the back of the auditorium. This anger was mis-directed at the speakers at the meeting. Some audience members did not seem to understand that the construction company and DPW representatives in attendance only dealt with current construction issues and streetscape issues. The crowd had questions about parking permits, traffic flow, and other things beyond the scope of this early meeting. Next, Mark Wolf introduced Mark Warner, Mayor Ballard's Neighborhood Liaison, and the new City-County Councillor for District 3 (which includes Broad Ripple) Will Gooden. Will replaced Councillor Ryan Vaughn when Ryan recently became Ballard's Chief of Staff. Wolf encouraged residents with questions for the Mayor's office to come to the BRVA office at 6311 Westfield Boulevard, Suite 101, on Wednesdays when the Mayor's liaison is working from there. Contact info for Gooden and Warner are on page 22 of this Gazette. Upcoming events mentioned included the Sidewalk Sale (Aug. 5), Ripple Effect 4 mile run/walk (Sept. 2), BR Historic Home Tour (Sept. 29), and Fall Gallery Tour (Oct. 12). The next quarterly public meeting of the BRVA is scheduled for October 23 at the Indianapolis Art Center at 7pm. The annual board elections take place at that meeting.

Buzzing Around Town with Nora Spitznogle

I love this time of year – Indiana State Fair and all sorts of festivals are popping up. There is music everywhere. I always wish I had planned ahead to take some vacation days. I am going to try to keep up my streak of going to the State Fair every day. I’ll be the one with the goofy grin and dairy cow ring.

Indiana State Fair Year of the Dairy Cow Friday, August 3 – Sunday, August 19 gates 8am (6 am for balloon race) – 9pm Sun-Thurs, 9:30 Fri-Sat all-ages, gates, $7 advance (CVS, Walmart, box office and more), $10 gate, $18 multi-day passes available

If you’ve even met me, you know I’m an Indiana State Fair junkie. As a kid, visiting the State Fair was our version of a family vacation. I still can’t believe that I live close enough to walk or ride my bike. For the last several years I’ve made it to the Fair every single day and I intend to keep the streak alive. It doesn’t matter what day you go – there are always plenty of free things to do once you get in the Fairgrounds. I spend big chunks of my time at Pioneer Village. The Village is as old as I am (you’ll have to visit the northeast part of the Fairgrounds to figure that out) and features demonstrations of Indiana farm life even older than I am. You can find old-timey music each day on the stage in the Pioneer Village Barn and check out the WLS Barn Dance Tribute Show on Friday, August 10, and Saturday, August 11 at 7:00 p.m. in the Pioneer Village Opry House. Make sure that you check out the 4-H projects in the halls in the northwest part of the Fairgrounds. The Open Show (adults and kids can enter projects) is housed in the Ellison Bakery Home and Family Arts Building. The building also has demonstrations and fashion shows throughout the run of the Fair. One of my absolute favorite things that happens on the Home and Family Arts Main Stage is the “Introduction to Royalty, County Fair Queens.” The Queens from each county are introduced wearing something that shows their interests. I love how they show off their personalities. I’ve seen the girls wear sports uniforms, costumes representing their home counties, and fancy dresses they’ve made. While the big name music shows have moved to the Banker’s Life Fieldhouse this year, there is plenty of great free music each day. I’m looking forward to REO Speedwagon on Monday, August 6, 7:00 p.m. on the Free Stage (northwest part of the Grounds) and Reverend Peyton’s Big Damn Band on Saturday, August

Aug 3 - Aug 16, 2012

11, 8:00 p.m. on the Free Stage. There are several other changes in the Fair this year. For the first time multiday passes are available. For $18 you can purchase a pass that is good for three separate days. And did you know that you can get your hand stamped for a passout if you’re coming back later on the same day? This year there is a $5 charge for parking in the infield. You can avoid that by parking on the Rural Street side of Glendale Mall (62nd and Keystone) and taking the free, air-conditioned shuttle bus. The shuttle leaves every twenty minutes from 10:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m. each day of the Fair. You can also arrive via foot or bike on the Monon Trail. Pedal & Park will watch your bike in their corral by Gate 18 and you’ll receive a $1 off voucher for your admission to the Fair. The Fair Train runs from Fishers (Government Center at 116th Street) every 90 minutes starting at 8:30 each day (adults $9, children 2-12 $6). I’ve always wanted to ride the train but couldn’t justify driving to Fishers to take the train when I could walk there in 10 minutes. My dear brother pointed out that I could ride round trip from the Fairgrounds to Fishers and back instead. I’ll make sure I do that this year. Make sure you visit for more details and grab a program on your way in. It is chock full of information about entertainment, where and when to see your favorite animals, shows, competitions, and other information. I’ll see you there!

Indy CD & Vinyl 10th Anniversary Celebrations Saturday, August 4 (11am–9pm) – All-day sale and performances Tuesday, August 7 (7pm)– Reverend Peyton/Big Damn Band 806 Broad Ripple Ave - all-ages, free,

I wish there was more space to tell you exactly how cool Indy CD & Vinyl is, but it would take up with whole paper. You’ll just have to pop in and see for yourself. They are celebrating their 10th anniversary with a bash on Saturday, August 4 featuring a big sale and awesome in-store concerts – by some of my favorite folks, no less: Richard Edwards (of Margot & The Nuclear So & So’s), Hotfox, Rocketbot, and Adam James Sorenson. On Tuesday August 7, Reverend Peyton & His Big Damn Band will play a special record release show at 7:00 p.m. I strongly suggest that you not miss the chance to see them in such an intimate venue.

Steven Pratt Punk Rock Wake and Benefit Show Thursday, August 9 Melody Inn 3826 N. Illinois St - 21+, doors 7:00/show 9:00, $5 donation

I wish I could say that I knew Steven better. He was a great drummer and I enjoyed his performances in several punk/hard core bands, - The Retreads, The Slammies, Drunko, The Mighty John Waynes, and a couple with names not suitable for a family newspaper. Steven moved to Hollywood a few years ago and I enjoyed keeping up with him on facebook. He died after an altercation after band practice in a warehouse space in Los Angeles. His family and friends are holding a wake for Steve at the Melody Inn. Steven’s old bands are playing and there will be a mic open for telling Steven stories. Bands performing: Phony Beatlemania (Clash Cover Band featuring members from America Owns The Moon, We Are Hex, Gestalts, and The Happy Thoughts), The Mighty John Waynes, and Drunko

Indy Hostel Folk Festival Saturday, August 11 Indy Hostel 4903 Winthrop Ave - all-ages, $12.50 presale/$15 at door/ read below for family pricing, 3:00 – 11:00 p.m.

If you haven’t been to the Hostel yet, now is your chance. And it’s just up the Monon Trail from the State Fair Grounds, so you can take a page from my book and do both things in one day. It’s fun - try it! Not only will there be great music, but it’s one of the shadiest yards in town. This is the second year for the Indy Hostel Folk Festival and it promises to be even bigger and better. The Hostel has added a second outdoor stage so the music will never end. The Spud Puppies are headlining the show. Other acts include Old Truck Revival, Bro Slaw, Chicago-based Adam James Sorensen, Barbara Bell and the Whipstitch Sallies. The day promises to be family-friendly with activities planned for the kiddos. You can bring your own drinks and snacks (they’ll pack your elephant ear from the Fair to go if you ask). There might be a food truck or two also. Bring blankets or chairs for seating. I am often asked about the Hostel. People often confuse a hostel with a half-way or ‘flop’ house. It’s quite the opposite. The Hostel is bright and airy and full of adventurous travelers, often from other countries. Pop in anytime for a tour of the dormitory-style lodging. The neighborhood is great – and I’m not just saying that because I live down the street. You can purchase presale tickets for $12.50 at Indy Hostel. Kids under 8 yearsold free, 8-12 just $5.00.

The proceeds from this all-day concert will go to help Locals Only in their quest to open in a new venue.

Indy Hostel Folk Festival

After a successful first year under the shade trees at Indy Hostel, the Spud Puppies are again headlining the Indy Hostel Folk Festival, on Saturday, Aug. 11, 3-11 p.m., at Indy Hostel at 49th and Winthrop Ave., a stone’s throw from the Monon Trail in Midtown Indianapolis. Joining the Spud Puppies will be the Whipstitch Sallies, Barbara Bell, Old Truck Revival, Adam James Sorenson and Bro Slaw, promising a diverse lineup of many of the best local and regional folk and roots musicians. New this year is an expanded stage and deck area at Indy Hostel, allowing for two stages with alternating acts. With its backyard setting, hula hoop entertainment, and other family activities, the Indy Hostel Folk Festival promises to be a laid-back event with some of the best local music of the summer, so bring your blanket or lawn chairs, family and friends, and beverages and snacks of choice, and kick back. Advance tickets are available at Indy Hostel for $12.50, day of show $15; kids 8-12 $5; kids 7 and under free. ABOUT THE BANDS: On almost-hiatus since 2008, the Spud Puppies played to enthusiastic crowds at last year’s inaugural Indy Hostel Folk Festival and at a packed-house St. Patrick’s Day celebration at Indianapolis’ Locals Only Art & Music Pub. With 8 band members lending their voices, instruments and songwriting talents the Spud Puppies have a sound described as transatlantic folk rock. Expect original songs from the band’s two CDs, 2005’s Off the Leash and 2004’s Pick of the Litter, as well as other fan favorites. The Whipstich Sallies layer their vocals over a refreshing new take on the guitar, banjo, harmonica, bass, mandolin and fiddle. The four-piece band has been touring regional festivals since 2010 and in 2011 won the Shady Grove Fiddle Festival band competition. Barbara Bell is an acclaimed author and award-winning documentary director, but before she was those, she was writing and composing her own songs. On her CD The Bull is Blind, the gritty, dark lyrics shine with a spooky gleam. Old Truck Revival is the power duo John Bowyer and Junk Box Mike playing and singing their unforgettable brand of newgrass with an edge. Adam James Sorensen is a Chicago-based artist who has delighted local audiences on his frequent visits to Indianapolis. His debut CD Midwest was recorded after his return to his native city after years studying and performing on the East Coast and in Europe.

Army Corps of Engineers levee project study public hearing

Members of the public in the Indianapolis North levee and floodwall project area are invited to attend a public hearing and open house Aug. 23 at the Meridian Street United Methodist Church, 5500 North Meridian Street. The open house is 5-6:45 p.m. The Army Corps of Engineers public hearing begins at 7 p.m. Army Corps of Engineers Louisville District Commander Col. Luke Leonard will chair the meeting. The purpose of the hearing is to accept oral and written public comments in response to the draft Supplemental Environmental Impact Study (DSEIS) which will be considered when the final report is prepared. The DEIS and more information are available at The open house session will allow for informal discussions with Corps’ representatives on the content of the DSEIS. The Corps will provide displays to illustrate alternative actions to complete the project along with the proposed action, the Westfield Blvd. alternative. The public hearing is a forum for oral comments on the DSEIS. A registration table will open at 5 p.m. where attendees can obtain handouts, provide mailing information for receipt of project updates, and sign-up to speak during the public hearing session. All oral comments will be made in an organized format with comments limited to three minutes. Each comment will be recorded. Comments made at the hearing will be included in the project documentation and will be considered in the preparation of a Final Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement (FSEIS). As required by the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA), the DSEIS evaluates specific alternatives or proposed actions for realigning a downstream section of a proposed floodwall, additional tree removal at previously constructed sections of the project and changes to mitigation of the project’s environmental impacts. The Corps has completed construction of two sections of floodwall, within the Warfleigh and Broad Ripple neighborhoods; however, those neighborhoods will not receive full flood risk management benefits until all three sections of the project are complete and the levee receives an acceptable rating to meet FEMA requirements thereby reducing or eliminating flood insurance. When the DSEIS comment period ends, the Corps of Engineers will prepare a FSEIS which will provide detailed responses to the public and agency comments and include changes and clarifications resulting from those comments. The FSEIS will then be circulated to agencies and the public for a minimum 30day review period, after which the Corps and its local cost sharing sponsor, Indianapolis Department of Public Works, will make final decisions on the future direction of the project. Those decisions will be set forth in a Record of Decision (ROD) by the Corps of Engineers. The ROD will explain the reasons for the project decisions, based upon the information contained in the FSEIS. “Public safety is our number one concern,” said Bonnie Jennings, Army Corps of Engineers project manager. “When the levee is complete, home owners and businesses can rest assured that that the levees and floodwalls – the complete system – will reduce risks that flooding causes.” The DSEIS comment period has been extended to Friday, August. 31, 2012. Written comments may be submitted at the public hearing, sent via e-mail to, mailed to the address below or dropped off at the Corps of Engineers events on Aug. 23. Direct comments to: COLONEL LUKE T. LEONARD, DISTRICT COMMANDER US ARMY CORPS OF ENGINEERS, LOUISVILLE DISTRICT, PO BOX 59 ATTN: CELRL-PM-P-E, LOUISVILLE, KY 40201

I am a life-long resident of the Broad Ripple area. My family has been in Broad Ripple for many generations. Jacob Coil platted and named Broad Ripple in 1837. Two of his daughters married into my family in the 1870s. My grandfather was a mail carrier at the BR post office and a charter member of the American Legion Post. My grandmother Helen Dawson Hague worked at the Broad Ripple National Bank in Mustard Hall that became Fletcher Trust, then AFNB, then Bank One, and now Chase. My uncle Glen Hague worked at TV News and at Hoster-Roberts Ford, which is now Passwater’s and the Old Pro’s Table. My great-grandfather, grandmother, uncle, father, sister and son all graduated from BRHS; I am class of 1978. My son John is BRHS class of 2006, and works with several bands in IPS. I am currently the organizer of the BRHS reunions for the classes of the 1930’s and 1940’s. For many years, I have wanted a newspaper that answered my questions. Where did that store go? Why were those people digging on the corner? When is the BRHS Homecoming Parade? What happens at that business? The Gazette is that paper. You will get an unbiased look into what is happening in Broad Ripple because I have no financial interests in Broad Ripple, nor am I affiliated with any of its organizations. I am simply a resident who is passionate about the area. You will also read about the history of Broad Ripple. This history continues to expand as I uncover new sources of stories and photos. The Gazette’s area of coverage has no real boundaries. Historically, the town of Broad Ripple extended down to 54th Street. The goal of the Gazette is to share with readers stories that are within 10 minutes or so from the heart of Broad Ripple - covering events in the Midtown region. Also, Broad Ripple is one of the six Cultural Districts recognized by the City of Indianapolis. We try to let you know what is going on in the other five districts as we can. One question I often get is how an article gets into the Gazette. We do not accept payment for articles. Article subjects are picked by me for inclusion based on the interest to the residents and visitors to the Broad Ripple area. Since this is a bi-weekly paper, we will not be able to cover news as it happens. Rather, our focus is on issues that are not time sensitive. You will probably never see these stories anywhere else, so getting them a week or so later will be much better than not at all. We try to include a new/recently opened business or long-time business feature article in each issue. I have hundreds of stories planned, but if there is something you want to read about, please let us know. I think you will enjoy the Gazette. I know I enjoy bringing it to you. -Alan Hague

Howling at the Moon by Susan Smith It’s time for school to start again. This has been the summer that supports the opinion that before Labor Day is too early. How kids can concentrate in this heat is questionable. Practice for track and football becomes a concern for safety due to heat stroke and surely even recess is compromised when it is in the 90’s and the playground is blacktop. At this writing there seems to be no end in sight for high temps and drought. It is not only the school calendar that has changed since most of us went to school. Schools are reinventing themselves to keep up with the times. The focus today is technology. The July issue of Urban Times, a publication for and about downtown neighborhoods, featured an article about the new Carpe Diem School, opening this August, located in the 2200 block of North Meridian Street. As a charter school it is a tuition-free public school and will serve grades 6 through 12. Carpe Diem uses an educational principle known as “blended learning”. The school will rely heavily on state-of-the-art technology to allow students to learn on their own (sitting at computers). That technology keeps the small teaching staff (4 teachers to 300 students) constantly apprised of which students need help, and where. There are advantages. Individualized technology-based learning allows for numerous elective courses. Twice a day, software generates a report telling teachers which kids are ahead and which are behind so customized programs can be implemented. A student could have the same math teacher for all grades so that teacher will know that child inside and out, according to the superintendent Robert Sommers who will oversee as many as six Carpe Diem Schools in Indiana. The schools will have a partnership with Ivy Tech State Community College which will allow Carpe Diem students to earn an associate’s degree before leaving high school. Career counseling is a strong focus. Things are changing. We live in a digital age. It has not gone unnoticed by the pet industry. One company spokesperson said “In a world where video games, iPods and other electronics reign supreme we unfortunately see less and less children having an interest in pets.” The industry is concerned that if today’s 5- and 10-year-olds fail to develop the connection with animals and the desire to own one, the industry will face an impoverished market and a dwindling customer base that cannot support the abundance of small, independent retailers. The most vulnerable will be those that specialize in small animals, reptiles, birds and fish–basically any category other than cats and dogs. I know at our house, our kids had it all….hamsters, guinea pigs, fish, lizards and rabbits. I grew up with a rabbit and gold fish. How many of you had Habitrails for your hamsters? How many of your kids today are asking for that for their birthdays? Studies show that kids turn to their pets for emotional well-being, with 40% of children choosing pet companionship when feeling down. Kids were also found to seek out their pets when feeling tired, upset, scared or lonely, and 53% of respondents said they enjoy doing homework with pets nearby. “Being around animals is extremely good for children,” says Dr. Harvey Markovitch, pediatrician and editor of The Archives of Disease in Childhood. “They’re good for morale, and teach children about relationships and about the needs of another living being – learning to care for a pet helps them to learn how to care for people.” Studies show caring for pets aids in improving school attendance and teaches children about responsibility. Armed with those statistics, the pet industry, knowing that teachers have limited resources, initiated Pets in the Classroom. This is a program that has helped teachers support classroom pets with no-hassle educational grants for the purchase of new pets, pet environments, pet food and supplies for existing classroom pets. Since 2010 over 9,300 grants have been awarded. If you are a teacher who would like to use pets for education go to . On that website they state “whether it’s Math (“how much does a hamster weigh?”) or Science, (“what does a snake eat?”) Geography (“what part of the world do ferrets come from?”) or Grammar (“what words would we use to describe a goldfish?”) students will approach learning all these subjects with a new enthusiasm and interest. Other classes can even come visit your classroom pets and your students can create special presentations about the animals.” The following conditions apply: Pets in the Classroom grants are offered to Pre-Kindergarten through Eighth grade classes in both public and private schools. These grants are intended to support pets or aquariums in the classroom for the purposes of teaching children to bond with and care for their pets responsibly. The welfare of the small animals involved is of paramount importance. These grants must not be used for the purposes of research or experiments of any kind. Thanks to Bill Brooks, editor of Urban Times, for his interesting article on Carpe Diem School. The Indianapolis Star did a feature as well. Look for it online. I always say, pets make you smile.

Sudoku is a nine by nine grid. The solution (each puzzle has only one) will have all the numbers from one through nine in every row and every column. In addition, the grid is divided into nine three-by-three sections. Each of these three-by-three sections will also contain all the numbers from one through nine. Each Sudoku puzzle from Pappocom can be solved using logic alone. If you prefer guessing, you can – but there is a logical way to solve every puzzle. Let’s start with the easy puzzle. We will try to put a 1 in the middle section of the top row which contains 4-6-9. The 1 in the left section of the top row eliminates the spaces in the 2nd row. The 1 in the right section eliminates the space between the 9-6. The 1 in the center section eliminates the spaces below the 6. The only place left is directly to the left of the 4. You have learned one technique needed to solve Sudoku puzzles. There are many more.

Indiana State Fair presents “Ciao Italia” in the International Pavilion (Grand Hall). This 17day exhibit features food, facts and fun aspects of Italy and its longstanding connections with Indiana. A special focus is on Clinton, Ind., with its tremendous Italian population and its popular Little Italy Festival that draws tens of thousands of people each year. • Bankers Life Fieldhouse Free Shuttle – This year’s biggest State Fair concerts (Barry Manilow, Journey, Train, Blake Shelton) are taking place downtown at Bankers Life Fieldhouse. Concert ticket holders can attend the fair on any of its 17 days, not just the day of the concert. For those who do attend both on the same day, however, a free shuttle service from the fairgrounds to the Fieldhouse can be boarded near the Fairgrounds east gate on Fall Creek Parkway. • SuperDogs – Unbelievable tricks, uncontrollable energy, aerial stunts and infectious laughter are all part of this fabulous family show in the Dow AgroSciences Celebration Park. More than a dozen highly trained canines run, jump and retrieve in a huge 100’ X 25’ arena during three daily shows throughout the fair. • MHS presents Flippenout Extreme Trampoline Show – Trampolines are in backyards everywhere now, but don’t try these tricks at home! The athletes in this show reach heights as high as 25 feet as they flip and twist and even jump with snowboards strapped to their feet! This high-energy, synchronized show features highly skilled athletes during three daily performances in the Family Fun Park. • Harold Lee Miller Photography exhibit – Dozens of Harold Lee Miller photographs focusing on “life at the fair” are on display in the Normandy Barn from 1 to 9 p.m. daily throughout the fair’s 17-day run. The photos are part of a collection Miller began in 2005 and highlight everything from livestock shows to fair food. Miller traveled to 10 different fairs around the state looking for iconic images of each subject and ultimately turned the project into a book, Fair Culture. Don't miss Broad Ripple's own Rev.

Chaim Gur-Arieh, Ph.D. knows Syrah. He grows it and 8 other varietals on 209 acres in the Sierra Foothills of California. "It grows so well. Its floral and fruity," says the self proclaimed life-long wine lover but newcomer in the wine making industry. He started his C.G. Di Arie Vineyards and Winery in 2001 where he produces about 50,000 cases per year. Born in Turkey, Chaim's family moved to Israel when he was just 14 where he did his time in the Israeli Army and thus the local university. His intelligence and dedication allowed him to get his PhD in the United States at the University of Illinois where he majored in food science and landed a job at Quaker Oats in Chicago as a product development specialist and helped create the "Cap N Crunch" breakfast cereal. From Quaker Oats he went to Del Monte in California and helped develop pudding and yogurt cups. He then formed his own company, Food Development Corporation where he created Hidden Valley Ranch Salad Dressing, Power Bars and Wine Coolers. In 1998 he sold his company and pursued his passion: wine making. That versatility and creativity is reflected in his wines and his latest creation a "barrel heist/wine keg." It's designed for restaurants to dispense wine like they do beer on tap. We've all been to a bar and seen those beer taps. Well now, imagine a wine tap system. Oh yes, there are several out there but this one is different. More compact. More eco friendly. And as I talked to Chaim that afternoon at Pure Eatery in Fountain Square, I realized this invention was as much of a part of him as his wines. His brain and heart never seem to stop working, just creating more ways to share his passions with others in a simple, usable, form. Be it IN the glass, or on the way TO the glass. The device looks like a beer tap on top but with 3 faucets. Under the bar is the keg which is a plastic ball about twice the size of a basketball in which are 3 bags made from low oxygen permeable plastic. Inside those bags are Chaim's wines. There are two lines from each faucet connecting to the plastic ball. One line goes into a wine bag and the other is filled with CO2 and goes into the space between the bag and the keg ball wall. When someone orders a glass, the faucet is pulled sending signals to the lines so the CO2 releases and adds pressure easing the wine from the bag to the tube to the faucet. Chaim says the invention holds approximately 20 liters of wine or 2.2 cases. "But it is so much lighter, it has the heft of 1 case," he says. And when empty the wine keg system collapses and can be recycled. So far only a handful of restaurants in the US are using Chaim's system including Pure Eatery and the Buddha Lounge in Indianapolis. The day I interviewed Chaim I got to sample three of his wines from the system. The 2010 Zinfandel had a bit of "fizz" to it from the pressure. The flavor was jammy with notes of black berry and white pepper. The 2009 Interlude is a blend of Syrah, Petite Syrah, Zinfandel and Primitivo. It offered up a much richer, deeper palate of black fruit and was pleasantly chewy with a long finish. The 2009 Syrah was a gorgeous deep garnet color with enticing aromas and flavors of black raspberry with nice acid and a rich, lush finish. The artwork on the C. G. di Arie bottle features two lions. "Arie" means lion in Hebrew and his wife of 41 years, Elisheva, is the designer. Chaim also did a limited bottling of a syrah named for her, 2009 Elisheva Mon Amie. I asked him why he chose syrah to be the grape. "Because like her, it's very energetic yet temperamental. It is a huge wine but has plenty of gentleness and is not abrasive, like her," says her husband. I asked Chaim if he planned to keep a bottle or two to open on their 50th Wedding Anniversary. His eyes twinkled. "I am sure it will still be drinking well," he said. Especially if its Syrah. Jill A.

Gettin’ Ripped in Ripple by Laura Minor

Our genomes can be Phenomes!! I have always been quite fascinated with research, especially in the area of fitness (huge shock there!). The body is such an interesting creation and its processes, whether they be beneficial or detrimental are in a word, quite intriguing. I found information about a study from Harvard researchers in which they discovered a hormone produced in response to exercise that may be turning people’s white fat brown, and in the process lessening their susceptibility to obesity, diabetes and other health problems. This study provides remarkable new insights into how exercise affects the body at a cellular level. Scientists have believed for some time that muscle cells influence biological processes elsewhere in the body, beyond the muscles themselves. In particular, they have suspected that muscle cells communicate biochemically with body fat. But just how the muscles “talk” to the fat cells was the mystery. Until this study that is; which examined human and animal muscle cells. The scientists closely examined the operations of a substance called PGC1-alpha, which is produced in abundance in muscles during and after exercise. The increases in PCG1a in muscles resulted in a bump up of a protein known as FNDC5 and later named “irisin” (follow me, please!!). The protein, allegedly, enters the bloodstream and the fat cells, where it begins turning regular fat — especially deep, visceral fat — into brown fat. You’re probably getting a headache by now so let me get to the relevance of this. Brown fat, is physiologically desirable. While white fat cells are essentially storehouses for fat, brown fat cells are metabolically active. They use oxygen and require energy and burn calories. So this study suggests that irisin, and exercise, partially determine how much brown fat each of us contains. Other experiments with muscle cells from human volunteers who’d completed a controlled, weeks-long jogging program found that they had much higher levels of irisin in their cells than before the exercise program began. In essence, irisin appears to be one of the more important missing links in our understanding of how exercise improves health, other than the more obvious benefits such as heart health. There is a lot more work to be done to understand entirely how this hormone works but it does raise interesting questions to me. Such as, if FDA approved, will this hormone be available to the very obese, disabled, and those unable to exercise to alter the ratio of white to brown fat? And OF COURSE the weight loss industry will jump on that bandwagon and sell irisin capsules that will promise a sleek and trim bod (ugh). As if there aren’t enough as it is…..this gives you all yet ANOTHER reason to keep it moving! Laura Minor owner and operator of So.Be.Fit. Personal Training and Fitness studio located at 54th and the Monon. She is passionate about teaching others how to “FIT” exercise and physical activity into their daily lives, and have fun while doing so! Visit her website at or e-mail her at

Poetic Thoughts

by C.W. Pruitt II

A Poem From Paris

My friend John Stulgate sent me many things when he lived in Paris, France. One of my favorites is the poem below. Loss was written in the middle of the night after fitfull dreaming.

Loss That cold wind blew across my heart and your form turned away through each dream unattainable and ice with a white whisper from an ancient and long-gone time so absolute that I could not fear only know that an end had happened and the mourners long dead a dead leaf across their grave John Stulgate 2009

Broad Ripple History Saturday Gathering informally the 3rd Saturday of each month May-August from noon to 2pm at

White River Yacht Club

1400 East 74th Street [AA27] (Gazette phone 508-6634 Call to verify meeting) Drop in with your stories, old maps, photos, etc.

Last 2012 meetings Aug 18 & Sep 15 Bring your photos or memories to share. Directions: What is History Saturday? It is an open forum to share your memories of anything from the greater Broad Ripple area so they can be preserved. It can be about Glendale, Rocky Ripple, Ravenswood, etc. Maybe you have a picture

of a streetscape, or a business that is long gone, or of people you remember. Stories shared at a previous meeting included growing up in Ravenswood, Harley Horton, and working at Little America. Send me your email address and I will add you to the email reminder list. History Saturday is now meeting at a new time and location. We will meet on the 3rd Saturday of each month from noon to 2pm at the White River Yacht Club. Lunch will be available for purchase. Where is the WRYC? Ahh! That is the tricky part. It is on the east bank of the White River at about 74th Street. I recommend NOT trying to get there from the south, because of the street layouts and construction detours in Ravenswood. Directions (although if you are really cool, you will come in your yacht!):

1) Come to Ruth Drive and Keystone Avenue. It is between 75th and 71st. This is where Walmart is. 2) Turn west onto Ruth Drive (Turning east onto Ruth would take you into the Walmart center). 3) Take Ruth Drive west towards the river about 5 blocks and turn north (right) onto Ralston Avenue. 4) Take Ralston about 2 blocks north to 74th Street which is clearly marked. You can only turn left here, west, toward the river. 74th Street will turn into the White River Yacht Club parking lot. 5) Call me on my cell phone when if you get lost 508-6634.

Right in my Own B a c k y a r d by Brandt Carter Urban Beekeeping- Part II

By Guest Columnist Kathleen Blackham I would like to share my personal experience of keeping bees in the city. I set up my equipment and got my bees all with the help of my mentor. It was interesting to watch the bees take to their new home in my backyard, a city lot. It amazed me to watch them to orient themselves to my hive. They did that by flying around the entrance to the hive. This took a few hours. By the next morning, they had figured out their new home and were on their way to doing what they do best ― gathering nectar. The frames that were in the hive bodies had some built-up comb, which meant that before much nectar could be deposited inside the hive, the bees had to finish building up the comb cells. As a result, that first year I was not able to harvest any honey. Unfortunately, winter brought challenges for the bees, and they did not make it through the winter. I have yet to understand the exact cause of this. There are so many factors that can affect bees in negative ways that it is impossible to identify the exact cause . . . at best it’s just a guess. The second year I was more diligent and ordered a “nuc.” A nuc is small cardboard box with 6-10 frames of bees, a sealed brood and a queen (essential!). You just pull out the frames from your hives and replace them with the nuc frames. Once again those bees did not make it through the winter. I wasn’t discouraged yet. I ordered two nucs the third year. I lost one over the winter and one survived ― finally. Yeah, a celebration! The fourth year, my mentor had some extra bees, and I was able to fill the void left by the demise of the one hive. Now in my fifth year, I have three hives ― the strong hive and two additional hives created by swarms that were gathered by my friend. You see, when the hive becomes too crowded, the bees begin to grow a second queen. Once she is mature, part of the hive will leave with her and try to find a new home, freeing up space for the bees that remain in the hive. Typically, swarms are more prevalent during the spring. Swarms are “free” bees. You just have to figure out how to capture them. This spring I was in my backyard when I looked up and saw the air filled with honey bees. I heard the amplified buzzing. I watched as the bees leaving the hive started gathering on a tree branch in my yard. As more and more bees gathered, their weight pulled the branch down. I called my friend with a plea for help. He told me if I lived out away from the city I could shoot the limb and have another person there to catch the bees. Well, I don’t own a gun and didn’t have anyone willing to stand below the branch to capture the bees. The branch where the bees had assembled was between 10-15 feet in the air. Within just a few minutes, however, the bees took off again and landed in my neighbor’s tree. Ultimately, the bees disappeared. I’m hopeful that they found a home and are still gathering nectar. A couple of summers ago I was able to harvest some honey and bottle it. The equipment to accomplish that task is expensive. This leads me to suggest finding a beekeeper with the extracting equipment and ask to use it. This is not a process for your kitchen or garage because the honey will somehow end up where you don’t want it. It doesn’t take long before you feel as though you have honey everywhere. I must also suggest that you wear old shoes for the process. This is the voice of experience; before I learned that lesson I was cleaning off sticky honey from my shoes for days. One last point: don’t harvest all the honey the bees have made. They require at least 70 pounds of honey to get through the winter. You don’t want to starve them. My hope is that you may join me in harvesting Indianapolis honey. It is quite good. You and your friends will enjoy eating this liquid gold, and your yard will become more lush because of the pollination the bees contribute.
