Perfect weather for 8th annual Broad Ripple Historic Home Tour The weather for the 2012 Broad Ripple Historic Home Tour was the best ever (I know because I have been to each one). The eight homes were filled with tour attendees enjoying the history and picking up ideas for their own homes.

Catherine Dusing - CIBA founder

In This

By Mario Morone Catherine Dusing’s bicycle travels have taken her around the world. She and her husband, Edward, founded the Central Indiana Bicycling Association (CIBA), which has inspired generations of bicycle enthusiasts in the Hoosier State. She recently spoke about her affiliation with the non-profit group. “My husband and I got involved with CIBA in 1964, but we were involved with bicycling long before that. I’ve ridden a bike all my life. I’ve ridden thousands of miles around Indianapolis and the state. I’ve also ridden around the United States, Europe and China. I went with the League of American Bicyclists through the Ambassador program. I’ve also gone to various bicycle events around Indiana and rode through Belgium, Luxembourg, Germany and Holland. When we rode through Luxembourg City, we had lunch across the street from the palace. I’ve also ridden from Indianapolis to Kalamazoo, Michigan. When the Indianapolis Scarborough Peace Games took place, we rode up there carrying the torch when they had the games in Scarborough, Canada,” she recalled. “When we had our national rallies for the bicycle organizations, we went to Nashville, Kalamazoo, Denver and Gettysburg. We took our bicycles with us and took an extra day to see the sights of each city. We always went during the summer months,” she said. Catherine Dusing bicycled in Luxembourg City in July 1990. “I volunteered during (Photo courtesy of Catherine Dusing) the 1996 Summer Olympic Games in Atlanta with their bicycling event. They called me as I was retired. I worked in one of their communications offices and went out to the three various events for bicycling. I’ve volunteered at every national event (except the

Winter Olympics), like the National Sports Festival, the Pan American Games, Police World and Fire Games,” she added. “It (bicycling) was just something my husband and I did together. We got CIBA started in 1964,” Ms. Dusing said. CIBA’s mission is “To provide opportunities for bicyclists of all ages and abilities to ride their bicycles on safe, friendly and well-organized rides; to be informed of bicycle events and related activities; to volunteer in support of CIBA and other bicycle-related organizations; and to socialize with other bicyclists.” You can find a ride and learn more at www. In addition to bicycling, she also had a career and other hobbies. “I retired as an office manager at Miller-Eads Company, an electrical contractor, in 1989. It was a small company, we had electricians out in the field doing the work. I have had my own tax return business the first three months of the year for 45 years. I also belong to the American Sewing Guild where I am their treasurer. I made all of my own clothing when I worked and I still do today,” Ms. Dusing said. She has two daughters, five grandchildren and eight great grandchildren. Though she stopped riding her bicycle three years ago, Ms. Dusing has not slowed down. “I’m the volunteer coordinator for The Hilly Hundred, which is October 19-21. I’ve been involved with this event for 43 years. In Rocky Ripple, we had a Pedal and Park Program for the festival where we parked 286 bicycles. We don’t have

a parking lot for this festival and I was out parking cars in yards so we could get them off the street. There were several thousand people out there. It was a gorgeous day,” she noted. Her volunteer efforts have extended to other events as well. “At the end of the State Fair, I received an award – I’ve been involved in parking over 20,000 bicycles in the last 12 years in their Pedal and Park Program. I’ve done the Broad Ripple Art Fair, Penrod and did the 100 Acres event when they opened at the Indianapolis Museum of Art. At this year’s State Fair, we parked 1,800 bicycles in 17 days. It was not as busy as what I hoped it would be and the State Fair attendance was down a little bit, too. When we do the Broad Ripple Art Fair, we usually park about 250 to 300 bicycles per day. Almost 70 percent of those riding bikes don’t have to park in Broad Ripple,” she explained. A popular bike model has taken her on some memorable journeys. “I rode my Schwinn Paramount, which was handmade in Chicago. My grandson has it now, as he wanted to keep it in the family. We got it around 1960 and I rode it until about three years ago, but now I do the volunteering coordinating for the NITE (Navigate Indy This Evening) Ride, Pedal and Park and The Hilly Hundred, which is a big event. We usually have close to 5,000 riders. We used to have The Hilly Hundred at Bloomington North High School, but they did some remodeling and there was no longer room there and we needed to get to a larger headquarters and moved to Ellettsville. There are several schools on the grounds where riders can bring their tents to the campgrounds. We have sleeping bag space for them in the schools. It’s a two-day ride. We have over 400 volunteers, but we need 25 more for Saturday,” she mentioned. Those interested can register at: Registration6.html or read for more information. The Hilly Hundred route on Saturday, October 20 covers 57.5 miles starting on the corner of Sycamore Road in Ellettsville, going southwest through the towns of Whitehall and turning around to proceed northeast through Solsberry. Sunday’s ride of 43 miles has Reeves Road as the starting point again, but pedals east and north before returning southwest to the Ellettsville Schools, providing a scenic bicycling mecca in southern Indiana. She reflected, “It was a shame that I quit riding when we have these bicycle paths and trails today after working several years on them and its great to see them getting used. I did this for the sport of bicycling. Its great to see all these people out riding their bicycles now. The Monon Trail has the possibility of expanding from Westfield into Frankfort.” Her efforts also created a popular bicycling facility: “We spent 10 years trying to get the Major Taylor Velodrome built. It was a money issue trying to get it done, but we got it completed in time for the National Sports Festival in 1982. Its been rewarding to me because I’m a people person. If it weren’t for that, I wouldn’t be doing this anymore. CIBA made me an honorary board member.” The next time you’re out riding on a bicycle trail, thank Catherine Dusing. Her pioneering spirit has made Central Indiana bike trails a reality for riders of all ages today as she continues making an impact on the community.

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

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 9 in the right section of the top row which contains 2-3-4-8. The 9 in the left section of the top row eliminates the space to the right of the 3-2. The 9 in the middle section of the top row eliminates the spaces to the left of the 8. The 9 in the right section of the middle row eliminates the space above and below the 3. The only place left is to the right of the 4. You have learned one technique needed to solve Sudoku puzzles. There are many more.

Friends and Broad Ripple residents, Pete and Ginny Elsbergs packed up and moved to Ft. Myers Beach Florida eight years ago, but their roots are firmly planted in Broad Ripple, Indiana. Saturday, September 29th, on a mini-vacation, they returned to a loving throng of friends at the Robert E. Kennington American Legion Post #34. Although they like Florida, Pete said "this will always be my home." Well Pete & Ginny, we missed you too and hope you return soon and often.

Food, Fun, and a Fundraiser By Heidi Huff

Serving Broad Ripple Since 1979

6520 Cornell Ave 317.253.2611

On Sunday, September 30th, foodie fund-raisers descended on Broad Ripple for the 2nd Annual Taste of the Monon to benefit Meals on Wheels of Central Indiana. This year’s event was sponsored by the American Legion, Carreau Design, Bike Line, JR Walsh Realty, Pedal & Park, JUMO music, The Bungalow Inc., and The Delta Boyz. Thirteen area restaurants and shops provided treats for the traveling taste fest, all situated within a few blocks of the Monon Trail. The stops were within bikeable or walkable distance from each other, making it easy to get (a little) exercise while we ate. And, boy, did we eat! Some of the snackers started with appi-teasers, then main dishes, followed by deserts. Some likely ate dessert first. But, being the Type A personality that I am, we ate in mappedout numerical order from north to south. After our check-in at JR Walsh Realty and some bluegrass music by The Delta Boyz we were off, and the eating was on! First up was FIRE Food and Flame where we slid Wings at Broad Ripple Brewpub. down some slow-smoked pulled pork sliders topped with a secret sauce, cabbage slaw, and toasted bun. Then we doubled back to Rene’s Bakery for a sweet treat; a mini blueberry muffin to munch on. Thoroughly confusing our taste buds, we stopped at La Piedad for some of their warm homemade chips and spicy salsa, like a food truck without the truck. (Unless you don’t like food trucks, and then it’s not like that at all.) Next was Broad Ripple Brewpub, serving up some Indian-spiced chicken wings. Thank goodness they provided a wet wipe so I didn’t have to lick my fingers – even though I wanted to! Just down the street to Just Pop In / Night Owl Baby we were treated to “Indy Style” popcorn, a delicious mix of cheddar and caramel. Next we stopped at the station, BRICS, that is, for a Sunday sundae. My pick was the Apple Crisp ice cream topped with caramel drizzle, whipped cream, and a cherry on top. Yes, it was every bit as delicious as it sounds. By the time we left BRICS I thought I might burst, but we were only halfway done taste-testing the Trail! We ate our way over to 3 Sisters Café for a veggie scone topped with warm fruit and nut porridge that was mmm-mmm good. Then, over the rainbow bridge (literally, not metaphorically) to Greek’s Pizzeria for a half slice of pepperoni pizza and a breadstick. Next stop, Westfield Boulevard for roasted and toasted treats. Monon Coffee Co. served up a hot cup of dark roast coffee and Artisano’s set up a sidewalk stand to Sundaes at BRICS. treat us to toasted almonds in an olive oil and spice blend. South of the Avenue at 10-01 we tasted jalapeño cornbread with a cranberry chutney sauce, a sweet and savory treat, with a kick! Next we went east to Poccadio Moroccan Grill for a sampler platter of meats, sides, and sauces including shawarma, shrimp, saffron rice, carrot salad, hummus, and much, much more. Last but not least we went back west and got our just desserts at Insomnia Cookies, a snickerdoodle for me, please! Admittedly, I had to save the cookie for later since there was no room for dessert. Thankfully, the last stop was furthest from the car so we got a short walk in at the end. I’m sure that ten minute walk was enough to balance out all those calories. Right? I was delighted to be treated to some of my favorite Rippleraunts and to try a few places I’d never been before, all for a great cause. For more information about Pizza and breadsticks at Greek's.

Hello readers! If you are a regular reader, certainly you are aware that I love to share all of the vast reasons why exercise is so good for you both mentally and physically. But there is another reason why being active can improve your quality of life... It can make your wallet FATTER. Yep, researchers have found that regular exercisers (3 or more times per week) can earn up to 9% more income than those who do not; and obviously that is not a small chunk of change. So, why is this exactly the case? For years, there has been a correlation between physical activity and income but the jury is still out on an established cause and effect. A study out of Cleveland State University authored by Vasilis Kosteas, Ph.D. profiled the traits of regular to avid exercisers, and the traits of their counterparts and found this significant difference in average income levels. That finding holds regardless of BMI, meaning how fit you look doesn’t seem to play a factor. Even occasional exercise provided an income boost: People who work out just one to three times per month make roughly 5 percent more than those who stay seated, the study says. This sort of finding isn’t completely new. Previous studies have shown very similar things, but it’s often been difficult to determine whether there’s true causation. There are several theories as to what correlations lead to the increased income levels. Citing others studies regarding the benefits of regular exercise: increased intelligence, positive attitude, and higher energy levels, Kosteas suggests that these factors in turn can raise a person’s productivity, leading to higher earnings. Basically, you feel better and work better when you exercise, and that translates to a larger paycheck. It could simply be that those who regularly exercise also are more disciplined at work, and strive to grow and reach and/or exceed goals. Physical fitness often brings on a sense of accomplishment and confidence which could lead to job advancement, networking and new opportunities. So, what are you waiting for? If your health or vanity aren't enough to convince you to get going, maybe your greed can! Turn off that TV, get in gear and earn more dead presidents!!

Right in my Own B a c k y a r d by Brandt Carter A Character in My Garden There’s a funny looking gent in my garden these days, adding personality to the remnants of my flowers, vegetables, and herbs. He’s all decked out in clothes that once hung in indoor closets, a frightful mish-mash of plaids and colors. If I give you one more clue (he’s stuffed with straw), you’ll figure out he’s my fall scarecrow. Here’s riddle for you to ponder as well: why did a scarecrow win a Nobel Prize? Tradition has it that scarecrows were mounted in gardens in the spring to keep crows and other birds from making off with newly sown seeds. Functioning as decoys, they have stood watch for farmers and gardeners, protecting crops through the centuries. Interestingly enough, countries all over the world have their own names for the figure we Americans call “scarecrows.” Today I think we see scarecrows used more for autumn decoration than for their original purpose. Artists and home-crafters have elevated scarecrows to an art form. I have seen scarecrows formed around wood or metalshaped cross posts and anchored in the ground. Although their heads are usually straw-stuffed pillows, I have seen many heads made with pumpkins. The crazier the hats the better, and the remaining attire is usually made from the gardener’s cast-offs. Scarecrows at the Indiana State Fair are always worth checking out. They can be fashioned into traditional figures such as a Wizard of Oz scarecrow, historic figures, animals, themes like Western, bridal, or holidays, or they can be made in the likeness of pop stars such as Charlie Brown, the Simpsons, and Shrek. The State Fair’s Scarecrow Contest would welcome your creativity. Here’s basic information in case you want to start scheming for next year.

If you’re not inclined toward State Fair competition, you may want to encourage your neighborhood to make scarecrows. There are even several scarecrow festivals in Indiana that can serve as inspiration. When making a scarecrow, stuff a pair of old pants or bib overalls and a shirt with rags or straw. Fasten the shirt and pants together so the straw will not fall out. Add a stuffed pair of gloves for hands. Put one hand in a pocket or one arm on top of its head to create whimsy. Poke the bottom of the pant legs into the tops of an old pair of boots. For the head, fill a burlap sack or pillow case and paint a face. Insert a stick into the head, tying it off with twine or rope. Then insert the other end of the stick into the scarecrow's shirt collar. Wrap its neck with a bandana. For hair, use a wig, a mop or more straw and top with a hat that gives your gent spunk and style. You can either mount the scarecrow on a post or set it on bales of hay. Consider affixing some dried leaves to its shirt or even perching a fun object or toy on its shoulder. A scarecrow is a great seasonal addition to your garden, yard or porch. Have you figured out the answer to the riddle yet? Because he was "out standing" in his field! Brandt Carter, artist, herbalist, and naturalist, owns Backyard Birds at 2374 E. 54th Street.

Series Benefits Students & Neighbors Butler University, a member of the Broad Ripple Village Association for many years, continues to prove its commitment to the northside community and its neighbors. One great example can be found in the Vivian S. Delbrook Writers Series. This series brings in nationally known and emerging authors to present readings of their work and answer questions. These talks are offered to students and community members alike, always free of charge. “From the very beginning it was part of the ethos of the visiting writer series to be free and open to the community. If you were a young writer 30 years ago, there was a sense that you has to leave (Indianapolis) to be challenged, to hear what writers were thinking and doing and saying,” said Professor Susan Neville who founded the program in the ‘80s. “We had the sense that we were helping the literary community and promoting literacy. It has become a wonderful conversation.” The series is divided into two sessions, fall and spring, with about six writers featured each session. Remaining this fall are poet Eduardo Corral on October 24, novelist Yiyun Li on November 8, and Robert Pinsky, former poet laureate of the United States, on November 28. The spring series will be announced in the near future. The 2012 fall season began with Margaret Atwood who attracted an audience of more than 850, including Butler students, community members, and many fans who made the trip from outside of Indianapolis. With writers of this caliber there could be “a temptation” to charge, laughed Susan, “but we have always, always said ‘no’ to that.”

English Professor Susan Neville and Nonie VonnegutGabovitch of Butler University.

Nonie Vonnegut-Gabovitch coordinates the program, working with the faculty to select writers to feature each year. She said the series has had a profound effect on the students, who are amazed to hear successful writers talk about their influences and their early careers. “It provides a wonderful understanding. People come from all different walks of life and choose to write,” she said, “You don’t have to be brilliant, you don’t have to be rich.” The Vivian S. Delbrook Writers Series is one of several lecture series sponsored by Butler University for students and the community. Others include the Diversity Lecture Series, the conversations@ efroymson series, and the J. James Woods Lectures in the Sciences and Mathematics. For more information, visit ~ Bridget Carson
