Noble of Indiana - Broad Ripple renovation By Mario Morone Noble of Indiana recently renovated their Broad Ripple location to showcase their new Autism and Therapy Services. “This summer, we launched our Autism and Therapy Services featuring ABA Therapy (applied behavior analysis) to help children and young adults ages 4 to 22 with autism spectrum disorder. This comprehensive therapy will be provided in their homes, schools and at our Broad Ripple location at 6060 North College Avenue,” explained Rita Davis, Noble’s Director of Community Development. “Noble of Indiana was founded nearly 60 years ago by families who wanted to provide their children with disabilities what society would not: an education. Since that time, our services have evolved to meet the changing needs of local families. And while we have always served people with autism, we recognized the need to really tailor our services for this unique population,” Ms Davis said. Today, nearly 1 in 88 children are diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder. “Broad Ripple is an ideal location for Noble to offer our Autism and Therapy Services because it is an area that needs this type of comprehensive services for people with autism and it fits our mission of creating opportunities for people with disabilities to live meaningful lives,” she noted. “ABA therapy is a scientific approach to understanding behavior and how it is affected by the environment. By focusing on how children behave and why they react the way they do, we can bring about positive changes in behavior. Our comprehensive approach means we can also offer speech and occupational therapies, family support and summer camps. Our Broad Ripple location features a family resource library, a community room for group activities and rooms for individualized therapy,” she said. Books can be checked out of the library as a free service. There is also a downstairs recreation room and upstairs playroom among many areas in their newly renovated building. Nearby Broadway Park provides a serene setting for walks on mild autumn days. 6060 North College Ave “Noble provides a wide variety of [CC23 on map] services, including First Steps early intervention therapies for babies (317) 254-3300 and toddlers, summer camps, life skills classes for teens, and Project SEARCH school-to-work services at St. Vincent Carmel Hospital and Riverview Hospital. For adults, we provide job services, community integration services, music therapy, behavioral therapy, and Community Living residential support. We currently serve about 1,600 individuals in Central and Eastern Indiana,” Ms. Davis mentioned. Tami Wanninger is their Director of Children & Therapy Services. “We offer early intervention services, working with infants and toddlers from ages 0 to 3 years. I also oversee our summer programs for kids with and without disabilities. This past summer, we served about 88 kids. I currently oversee our autism and therapy program. We are willing to offer this program here and in the individual’s home in their natural environment. Our comprehensive services other component is a clinical psychologist who provides clinical and family services to families and individuals,” she explained “I started at working at Noble East, then came to the Broad Ripple location later.

Noble of Indiana

I’ve primarily worked out of the Broad Ripple area. It was so important for us to be a part of the Indianapolis community. I think it’s important for us to stay in the Broad Ripple area. There really are no autism programs within the city limits,” Ms. Wanninger noted. Noble of Indiana has been in Broad Ripple for 17 years, initially located in the 700 block of East 64th Street, but has operated from their current location for the past seven years. Ms. Wanninger is in the process of completing her master’s degree in Public Administration. She cited some rewarding aspects of her career, “At the end of the day, if I’ve been able to help a family or guide a parent or put a smile on a child’s face, I’ve made a difference.” Because the reimbursement received through Medicaid Waiver and other sources do not cover the cost of providing quality services, Noble hosts several fundraisers each year, including its 3rd annual Stanley Security Solutions Raising the Stakes for Noble presented by the United Hope Foundation on Friday, November 9th. Up to 500 attendees will enjoy this Casino Night Charity Fundraiser, featuring a fun evening of playing "the tables" with blackjack, craps, roulette, Texas Hold'em

Buzzing Around Town with Nora Spitznogle Born Again Floozies, Vess Ruhtenberg, Party Lines Saturday, November 10 Deluxe at Old National Centre 502 N. New Jersey St. - all-ages, $10 ($20 VIP), 8:00

I’ve been playing the heck out of the Born Again Floozies’ new record, The Voluptuous Panic. And as we’ve come to expect from the Floozies, the album is excellent. Not only does the band sound great, they are big fun to watch. Songwriter and vocalist Joey Welch has an unusual guitar technique. His fingers fly across the strings almost like he’s playing piano on his guitar. Add in tap dancer/percussionist Michele Long, turntablist Mike Graves, drummer Vincent Jackson, and bassist Brett Cantrell and you’ve got a show! I’m a sucker for unusual percussion and great lyrics, and this record has both. Welch wrote the majority of the songs and his words are layered with hip-hop, lovely instrumentation, and lush horns. And I have a special place in my heart for CDs that come with liner notes and the words to the songs – thank you for both. The band is celebrating the release of record with a big show at Old National Centre. The lineup includes the iconic Vess Ruhtenberg, and the band Party Lines.

Tonic Ball, Tonic Gallery, Tiny Tonic Friday, November 16 Fountain Square

The Friday before Thanksgiving is always my favorite day of the year. Hundreds of musicians and artists come together for a great cause. The fact that I am Director of Programs for that great cause - Second Helpings – is icing on the cake. This will be Tonic 11 – I’ve been lucky enough to have attended the first ten and I don’t intent to break my streak now. This year’s tonic features the music of Stevie Wonder, U2, photo by Nora Spitznogle and the Kinks. I’m excited – Stevie Wonder I’ve actually seen all of those musicians live and can’t wait to hear my favorite local band’s renditions of the music.

MOST ACCURATE DIRECTORY MAPS • HISTORIC PHOTOS Tuck & Patti Friday, November 23, Saturday, November 24 Jazz Kitchen 5377 N. College Ave - 8:00 & 10:30, $25, 21+

I’ve been hearing about Tuck & Patti for years from my Aunt Ann and Uncle Jim. The Jazz Kitchen seems like a great venue to be able to really listen to their music – and a nice respite from your Thanksgiving activities. Onstage and off, guitarist Tuck Andress and vocalist/arranger Patti Cathcart might, at first impression, strike you as an odd couple. With 29 years of performing together, and 26 years of marriage, the devotion forged by this extraordinary couple shows no sign of dimming from the pressure of familiarity. This unique vocal/guitar jazz duo has cast its passionate musical spell. Patti exudes the soft, centered yet powerful graciousness of a gospel singer; Tuck almost wears his brain on his skin, anticipating the thousands of musical decisions he’ll have to send to his ten fingers during the course of a performance. Seeing the virtuosity and complexity of Tuck’s guitar work, most are surprised to learn that Patti is the actual writer, arranger, and producer. Without even blinking, Tuckthe-problem-solver brags, “Patti writes and arranges; I am just the orchestra.”

I’ll see you out and about! -Nora Not-for-profit director by day, music writer by night, Nora Spitznogle reviews music that happened and previews music and events around Broad Ripple Village. Nora managed CATH Inc coffeehouse at 54th Street and College Avenue for seven years. During that time she hosted hundreds of local and touring musicians, both at the coffeehouse and her home. When CATH closed in 2004 and the music was no longer coming to her, she had to wander from her corner of Broad Ripple to see what is happening elsewhere. You can find her at Second Helpings during the work day, waitressing at the Red Key on Saturday nights and prowling Broad Ripple music venues the rest of the time.

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

City’s Fall Leaf Collection Program Began Monday, Nov. 5

Through Friday, November 30, up to 40 bags of leaves per household will be picked up each week free of charge. To ensure a successful collection effort, Indianapolis residents are asked to follow these simple guidelines: Place leaves in plastic or large paper lawn-waste bags. Please close and seal the bags. Place leaf bags out by 7 a.m. on your regular trash day. Clearly identify and separate bags of leaves from regular trash. Place them on opposite sides of the driveway, in different colored bags or use different color tie wraps. In 96-gallon cart collection areas, all leaves must be bagged and placed at least three feet away from the cart to allow DPW trucks to service the cart. Additionally, all trash must fit inside the cart. Trash outside the cart will not be taken during leaf collection season. Residents also should ensure that sewer inlets and drainage pipes are kept clear of leaves and debris to avoid drainage and flooding problems. As a reminder, it is illegal to burn leaves in Marion County. Smoke from burning leaves pollutes the air with harmful particles and is hazardous to young children and people with heart and lung disease. For more information please contact the Mayor’s Action Center at 317-327-4622 or visit

Poetic Thoughts

by C.W. Pruitt II

The current alignment of Face of Indiana.

Leaning sculpture concerns residents By Alan Hague The Gazette received a call from John Hill from the Broad Ripple Brewpub. The brewpub is directly across Cornell Avenue from a sculpture that was placed along the Monon Trail back in 2003. Faces of Indiana for the Millennium is a sculpture created by C.L. Shiefer of Martinsville, Indiana. Faces was originally installed at the Governor's Mansion in 2000 and later moved to the Monon at 65th. It is a 10 foot x 5 foot x 4 foot, 14 ton art piece. John Hill says that over the years of sitting outside at the brewpub with friends, they have watched the sculpture lean more and more. "We've been watching kids climb all over it and we are just worried that one of these days its going to slip and fall on somebody," explained Hill. "We called the city a couple of years ago. They may have come looked at and maybe it wasn't as bad at the time, but somebody needs to do something about it."

We are all responsible for maintaining and enhancing the vibe. This is personal and shared. Communities thrive when viewed as a group experience. Below is a personal perspective based upon shared experiences within a room:

i am i am you. i am him and her. i am the human interactions within this room. i am the strings. i am the guitar. i am the force of the people in this room interacting with the music in this room. i am the electricity which lights up this room. i am indelibly connected to all that happens here. Thus, it is important that i make my contributions positively felt. C.W. Pruitt II Aug.21, 2008

CLUE: S equals N

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 left section of the top row which contains 1-6-8. The 9 in the right section of the top row eliminates the spaces to the left and right of the 1. The 9 in the middle section of the top row eliminates the three spaces in the row between the 1 and the 6-8. The only place left is between the 6-8. You have learned one technique needed to solve Sudoku puzzles. There are many more.

Jennifer Barker, owner of Bambu Salon, led the effort with support from INDYCOG, the Office of Sustainability, and artist, Scott Sebree to construct and install a custom bike corral in front of Bambu Salon at 916 E. Westfield Boulevard [G5 on map]. The comb design concept was developed by the staff at Bambu Salon and Barker commissioned the expertise of steel artist, Scott Sebree from the Indianapolis Art Center. The construction of the bike corral took place off-site at Edwards Electrical and has been in production for several months. Now installed, the comb bike corral holds 9 bicycles. The $4,200 needed to fund the project has been raised through grassroots efforts including donations from the salon’s clients and nearby business owners and in-kind botanical scalp treatments performed by the salon’s staff. Donations are still being accepted ($400 still needed) to pay for the cost of the bike corral and its installation.

New wines, a complementary holiday ornament, and the chance to win a slate cheese serving tray are some of the lures being offered by the Indiana Uplands Wine Trail wineries this holiday season. The Indiana Uplands Wine Trail (IUWT) is comprised of Best Vineyards, Brown County, Oliver, Butler, Carousel, French Lick, Winzerwald, Turtle Run and Huber Orchards and Vineyard. The 9 wineries kick off the season with a ticketed event on Nouveau Weekend, November 15th through the 18th. “Holidays in the Uplands” allows ticket holders visiting the nine wineries on the Indiana Uplands Wine Trail from Nov. 15 through Dec. 31 to receive a gold ornament with each winery's logo. Tickets cost $35 per person and a limited number are available on-line at http://holidaysintheuplands2012.eventbrite. com or at any Uplands winery. In France, the third Thursday of November marks the day when the first young Beaujolais wines vinted from the current year’s grapes are released with much fanfare to celebrate the harvest. Many of the Uplands' Wineries are doing the same including: Winzerwald presents a new Lieblich, a semi-sweet blend of Riesling, Gewurztraminer and Vidal Blanc – the perfect match for holiday ham, turkey or goose! Butler Winery offers a new semi-sweet Traminette. Carousel releases its popular Winter Jewel, a mix of Raspberry and Cranberry wines. French Lick Winery debuts a new dry red wine, Noiret. This medium bodied, fruity wine has bright cherry and strawberry flavors and a distinctive black pepper finish. Turtle Run has a new 2012 Chambourcin. Best Vineyards offers a Chambourcin wine called Nouveau 2012 vinted in the traditional French Nouveau style. A semi-sweet wine with very fruity aromas of berries and cherry. Huber’s Orchard and Vineyard will once again have its Pop's Reserve Nouveau for the 12th annual event at Huber's Winery on Thursday. Pop’s Reserve is a deep rooted tradition passed onto the 6th Generation Huber’s by great, great grandfather Pop’s. While enjoying Holiday in the Uplands you can pick up the 2013 Passport to the Wine Trail. Present the passport at each of the 9 wineries, get stamped, and when complete you receive one slate cheese serving tray per passport and the passport gets entered into the grand prize drawing which will be held at the 2013 Vintage Indiana Wine Festival in Indianapolis in June. Visit www. for links to individual wineries. Jill A. Ditmire is an Omnimedia Wine Specialist who shares wit and wisdom nationwide in print, TV and radio, and is also an AWS-certified wine judge.

The Gazette recently lost a beloved history columnist. Paul Walker passed in September. Paul wrote many articles on the families of old Broad Ripple and was a regular attendee of our Broad Ripple History Saturday meetings. Above is a picture of Paul and Carrie Walker dancing at the 2007 Gazette party held at the American Legion Post #3 at 64th and College Avenue. Below is Paul's first article in the Gazette, published in September 2004.

Letters From Readers

The Best Known Dog in Broad Ripple by Paul Walker

The dog was named Yorick, after a character in Shakespeare’s Hamlet. He was a Harlequin Dane, so-named because harlequins were court jesters who traditionally wore white garments with spots. Yorick was white with black spots like a Dalmatian. His ears were not trimmed because we didn’t want to be cruel to him, so they hung down full and loose. Yorick ran loose all over Broad Ripple in those days - the late 30’s and early 40’s. The dog-catcher never got a call on him. He was invariably accompanied by a red cocker Spaniel, Mike, who was our sister’s dog. Usually we heard stories about him, because there was no way we could follow him around. One story was that Yorick entered through an open door into the house of Cecil Ross, the village shoemaker, who lived in the 6400 block of Ferguson Street. Yorick allegedly ate a pound of lard off the Ross’ kitchen table. Another report came back that was unusual, that dog was so regal (it seemed that that was his attitude) that no dog dared to challenge him to a fight. Furthermore he ignored all the lady dogs (being beneath his royal position). It seems that Jack, of Jack’s Radio Shop in the 700 block of East 63rd Street, had a big Chow dog. This beast challenged everyone who dared to walk past on the sidewalk. They had to stand at attention until the Chow was through sniffing. On this occasion Yorick and Mike went cruising along the sidewalk on 63rd Street. When they reached Jack’s Radio Shop, the Chow came out and challenged them. Yorick, the caretaker of Mike, grabbed the 40 pound Chow by the scruff of the neck, shook him, and threw him clear out onto the street car tracks. A man who had been harassed by the Chow, watched this altercation. He promptly took Yorick and Mike over to Noffke’s Meat Market where he bought Yorick a steak. As noted, Yorick paid no attention to females. However, a man brought a beautiful Great Dane out to see him (in hopes of puppies). Yorick underwent a quick metamorphosis, tried to raise his floppy ears, and remembered about the birds and the bees. Much later he was shot in the back leg, obviously by some uncaring prankster, which was a tragedy. We took him to the vet, who put a wire and plastic cast on the leg. He soon gnawed the cast off in order to get at the wound. He wasn’t the same dog thereafter, until the end.

One of the canal weeder boats chained in place until needed.

Dear Editor: My 6-year-old keeps asking me: "When are they going to get those ugly machines out of the canal?" We would both love to know. I think they have been in the canal on a perpetual basis for the last 2 1/2 years. Do you know, are they permanent fixtures or will the job be completed at some point in my lifetime (or his)? Any insight would be appreciated. Thanks for a great publication! Sincerely, Tom and Will Hutchinson I responded to Tom and Will explaining that my understanding is the canal weeders are probably here to stay. The canal is the conduit for about 60% of Indianapolis' drinking water supply and it must be kept free enough of weeds to maintain the proper flow rate. In past years the boats would come and go, but this year the boats always seem to be in the canal. I think this is because of the drought that caused the weeds to grow faster due to the low water levels in the White River. Perhaps a spokesperson from Citizens can also respond to this letter. -Alan

A topic that I commonly visit is encouraging those to get "out of the box". Roughly meaning, although there are hobbies and pastimes that we all enjoy and frequent which is a healthy part of life, it is also a very eye-opening and growing experience to try new things; whether it be learning an instrument, skydiving, taking an art class, etc. However from time to time, although I often preach this advice, I catch myself running circles inside my box...quite literally. So, a few months ago, I decided that I, along with a friends and family, would join my father and ride the Hilly Hundred bicycle tour this past October 20th and 21st. The Hilly Hundred is a 100-mile bicycle tour that spans Monroe county and was established in 1967. This was its 45th year in fact. My 72-year-old father rides it EVERY year (well for the past 12 years). Many years he has ridden with friends, my mother a couple of times, but often he has ridden with no companions. I have always bragged to others about how he will drive himself, ride the first day, drive home to sleep, and return the second day; that takes motivation! I had always toyed with this idea, and realizing that at some point he may no longer do this event I thought "why not?". My reasoning was "My dad rides this every year, it can't be all that challenging...." I am here to tell you that I was DEAD WRONG! The first day's ride was 57 miles, and to say hilly is quite an understatement. Over the course of the day, you drudge up several hills, some of which are a 24% incline and others that are 1.4 miles long, and a total climb of 5202 feet. And the rain on the first half day didn't make matters any easier. The last 10 miles of that day were as mentally challenging as a full marathon and I actually caught myself considering not beginning the second day (which if you know me, you would know that would never happen...but the thought did enter my mind!). I kept catching myself thinking "I can't believe my dad does this every year...and loves it!". But alas, we all survived, and hobbled to our hotel and had a well deserved (and large) meal. As I was getting dressed Me, my dad Don Willis, and my sister Jennifer Willis. for the second day, I was dreading putting my butt on that bike seat...again, quite literally and although the ride was 14 miles shorter, I was prepared for it to be equally as difficult. Although it was also quite a challenge, the second day was amazing! It was gorgeous weather which helped enhance the beautiful scenery, and the total climb was not nearly as hard at 3535 feet. As the miles clicked away, strangely enough, I found myself not wanting it to be over! I went from slightly regretting my attendance to looking forward to next year! There were a few things that really stuck out in my mind over the course of the two days. First, this isn't a race; it is a tour. You see people of all ages, some as young as five and into their seventies and eighties. People of all shapes, sizes and abilities. Bikes of all kinds were represented. People looking out for one another, regardless if they were a complete stranger. In fact, my sister's chain broke on an uphill, and immediately two bikers with repair equipment stopped to fix it. Riders chatting with each other on the break areas and bonding over those killer hills. And just that feeling of camaraderie in taking pride that this large group of cyclists from all walks of life are doing this challenge together. It is truly a priceless feeling! Lastly, I had an amazing time with my family and truly a new appreciation for my father (who of course strolled into my Sculpt class the next day unfazed). He plays tennis and rides his bike hours a week, skis in Colorado every year, and takes our classes twice a week (oh yeah, my mom does too:). He lives more actively that most people at my, or any age for that matter. SO, the take away for this issue is multi-fold: Get out of that box, and if at first you don't enjoy it, keep pushing yourself and you may be pleasantly surprised. And, don't use age as an excuse not to do something whether it be physical or otherwise. If you keep telling yourself you are old....well, regardless of your age - you are.

BRVA Land Use & Development meeting By Martin Chittum The Broad Ripple Village Association (BRVA) Land Use and Development Committee held a meeting on October 23 at the Broad Ripple United Methodist Church. There were not enough members in attendance to have a quorum, so they did not vote on anything. They still had petitioners make their statements for the sake of information. The President called the meeting to order shortly after 6pm. The first petitioner was Robert Steidel, regarding the property at 701 Broad Ripple Avenue (formerly Barley Island) [H3 on map]. Mr. Steidel intends to establish an entertainment venue and plans to purchase a 3-way (beer, wine, & hard alcohol) liquor permit. This led to some discussion about the requirements for holding a 3-way permit – such as the mandate to also serve basic food such as hot soup and sandwiches – and mention of the fact the 3-way permit that had been held by the previous owner has since been sold to an establishment outside of the neighborhood, as per an informal agreement the former owner had made with the BRVA. After giving the Committee an overview of what he intends to do with it and some further discussion of what he will need to do to move forward, they all agreed that he had a good idea for a new entertainment venue and that would be a welcome addition to the neighborhood. The second petitioner was Adam Garvey, regarding a variance of development standards to provide for changes to the outdoor deck area at Petite Chou, 823 Westfield Boulevard [G4 on map]. The plan is to “jazz up” the facade to be more in the style of an urban French bistro. This includes building a short wall in the place of where the fence currently sits and a pergola over the seating area that will overhang slightly over the sidewalk. He showed a drawing of the plan to the committee. The reason for requiring a variance is that the current standards require a setback of 70 feet from the center of Westfield Boulevard. This would put the facade somewhere in the center of the building, so they are seeking to essentially legalize the way it has already been developed. Since they couldn't vote on it, they made a motion and a second to vote on it at a later time and then send him a letter voicing their approval. The third petitioner was David Vonnegut-Gabovich of BRICS and Josh Pierson of Untitled Ink. They are looking for a good solution for their trash disposal and would like to set up an area where they can have a shared dumpster. They would

like to have two dumpsters, one for trash and the other for recycling. It would be enclosed with a 6 foot wood fence and concrete poles surrounding it. Josh has cleared out an area near Cornell that he thinks would be ideal for setting this up. This would be shared by BRICS, Untitled Ink, and the architectural firm located at 6344 Cornell. Most of it will be located on the property of 6344 Cornell, so they are working with the owner to get permission to build it. The Committee was happy with the plan because it conforms to the concepts detailed in the Envision Master Plan which they intend to have become the standard for development in the neighborhood. The meeting closed with member Tom Healy taking a moment to give a quick update on the status of the Envision Broad Ripple Village Master Plan. It has been submitted to the Department of Metropolitan Development Commission for review and on November 7th it will be getting a hearing. If it is adopted, it will become the official plan of record, replacing the earlier plan from 1997. The next meeting is scheduled for November 27th at 6:00PM at the Broad Ripple United Methodist Church.

Samaritan Ambulance Happy to Lend a Hand If you see a big yellow Samaritan Ambulance at large in the Village, no need for alarm. It’s likely the Samaritan team is volunteering at a community event or otherwise helping out in the neighborhood. The ambulance service has been headquartered in Broad Ripple since 2010, having moved to Indianapolis from a suburban location. “It’s Broad Ripple. It has the feel of a small town but it isn’t,” said owner Kenneth C. Lock, II, explaining his reason for moving his company to the Village. He likes that Broad Ripple as the amenities of a big city with a local flavor, and he also appreciates that the Village has name recognition all around the city. “People know Broad Ripple,” he said. Ken has gotten Samaritan Ambulance involved in community activities in a big way since joining the Broad Ripple Village Association a few years back. The ambulance service will drive in the Broad Ripple Lights’ Up! holiday parade on December 8. This fall Samaritan provided emergency services for the Ripple Effect Walk/Run on Labor Day weekend, and last spring Samaritan was a sponsor for the 175th Anniversary Celebration for Broad Ripple. The company was a major contributor to the 2011 holiday

food drive, and Ken has pledged a 1,000 pound matching contribution toward the next Village food drive. Ken recently took on the challenge of overhauling the Village “Green Machine” and soon this roving cleaner will be seen up and down the sidewalks of Broad Ripple with a Samaritan Ambulance staffer at the helm. “I grew up in a small town and everything was all volunteer,” said Ken. “If you didn’t volunteer, it didn’t get done.” In addition to volunteer work, Samaritan Ambulance provides a full complement of medical transportation services from its station house at 6525 Ferguson, including emergency runs, routine medical transfers, transportation via a wheelchair bus, and long distance critical care transfers. Samaritan is the only Indiana ambulance service providing transportation for Indiana children to the Shiners’ Hospital in Cincinnati. Ken is proud of Samaritan’s list of accomplishments. “We’re the state’s only private, faith-based ambulance service, the only Broad Ripple-based ambulance service, and the only ambulance service which belongs to the Indianapolis Rainbow Chamber of Commerce,” said Ken. To learn more about Samaritan Ambulance, visit online, or keep a look out for the big, yellow ambulance. ~ Bridget Carson
