Midtown TIF Receives Bipartisan Support By Thomas P. Healy

Callie Cares Pet Food Pantry

A grassroots initiative to stimulate transformational Midtown enhancements received overwhelming bipartisan support at the City-County Council’s January 28 meeting. By a 23-5 vote, the Council passed Proposal 291, which establishes the North Midtown Tax Increment Finance (TIF) Allocation Area. Midtown is the “city within a city” that includes Broad Ripple, Meridian-Kessler, Mapleton-Fall Creek and Butler-Tarkington. For the past five years, community leaders from these neighborhoods have collaborated on strategies to address common interests and concerns such as population decline and deteriorating neighborhoods. In an era of reduced federal, state and local funding to stimulate development and repair infrastructure, the neighborhood allies felt a self-financing model like TIF was appropriate. Creation of the TIF district allows increases in assessed value of commercial property within the allocation area (the increment) to be “captured.” Instead of going into the general fund, these monies accrue in the TIF coffers for use in retiring a bond issued to fund improvements in the area. The City makes its determination on the amount of the revenue bond it can issue

By Mario Morone Broad Ripple resident Betsy Alt’s idea to provide supplemental pet food has united area canine and feline animal owners by creating Callie Cares Pet Food Pantry (CCPFP). “I started a not-for-profit whose mission is to help struggling families with urgent needs for their pets. Our biggest initiative is a pet food pantry. As far as I know, there are only two other pet food pantries in Indy, one run by F.I.D.O. (Friends of Indianapolis Dogs at and one at FACE (Foundation Against Companion-Animal Euthanasia at We are only in the beginning stages and awareness is our number one goal... awareness among those who need our service, those who may be able to donate and of course, volunteers. Our pet food distributions will take place twice per month and for the immediate future, they will be held inside the old family center in Broad Ripple Park,” she mentioned. December 22 was CCPFP’s first official distribution of cat and dog food and treats from inside the former family center in Broad Ripple Park at 1550 Broad Ripple Avenue. Two additional distributions occurred in January. The next distribution dates are February 9 and 23 and March 9 and 30, from 10:30 a.m. to 12 Noon. Ms. Alt started Callie Cares Inc. last year because her own dog, whose name the organization bears, had sustained a serious injury and needed expensive and complicated treatment. “I didn’t know how I was going to afford to get her that treatment. I started putting together some fundraisers, including a pasta dinner and raffle. I set up a donations website where friends could help out,” she said. According to Ms. Alt, she basically created a mini-public relations campaign through social media. The College Avenue Old National Bank branch got involved by opening an account in Callie’s name to receive funds and several other local small business donated products and services for a raffle. “There weren’t really a lot of financial donations – small events like offering massage services (She has a bodywork studio on 54th Street), organizing an all-you-can-eat pasta dinner at Moe & Johnny’s - mostly raised money for Callie’s surgery and post-op therapy. “The effort was so successful, it raised enough for the surgery in about four weeks,” Ms. Alt explained. “Before Callie even had her surgery, I decided to start a non-profit to ‘pay it forward’ for other pet owners in need in some way,” said Ms. Alt. “Callie Cares Inc. was formed in April, 2012, and I felt the best way to help the most people immediately was via a pet food pantry. The other two Indianapolis pet food pantries are farther south, so it seemed Midtown might be a good location for CCPFP,” she added. CCPFP stocks its shelves with cat and dog food donations and financial

based on the amount of increment generated. For example, the City estimates that the mixed-use parking structure nearing completion in the Village could generate an estimated $300,000 in property taxes annually. If that amount were “captured” the City estimates it could justify issuing a $3 million bond. By capturing increases on multiple commercial properties within the allocation area, the potential exists for a bond issue that would be large enough to fund multiple Midtown catalyst projects. Locations for catalyst projects have been identified in neighborhood planning processes including Envision Broad Ripple, Envision College Avenue, Mid-North Quality of Life plan, Envision Maple Road/38th Street plan and Midtown 20102040 Master Plan and Implementation Strategy. A unique aspect to the North Midtown TIF compared to other city TIFs is the establishment of the Midtown Economic Council (MEC). Comprising representatives of all affected Midtown neighborhoods, the volunteer MEC will review proposals and make recommendations to the Metropolitan Development Commission (MDC) regarding projects to be funded within the Midtown TIF. The MEC should help ensure that the developments are in alignment with the numerous neighborhood plans as well as with the Midtown TIF’s economic development plan. As an essential prelude to the creation of the Midtown TIF, the City of Indianapolis Department of Metropolitan Development planning staff crafted the plan for in September 2011. “The purpose of this project is to provide the basic tools for reinvestment,” the document states. Plan objectives include providing better neighborhood services and tools for stimulating private investment, job protection and job creation; recycling of underutilized public property; and upgrading infrastructure. After the Plan’s adoption by the MDC in July 2012, the legislative effort to establish the TIF began in earnest. Democratic councillors John Barth, Monroe Gray and Steve Talley partnered with Republican Will Gooden to introduce Proposal 291 in September. The past five months have been an intensive period of public hearings and outreach. Perhaps the most controversial aspect of the proposal was the inclusion of the mixed-use parking structure in the allocation area. During the many public hearings, attempts to amend Proposal 291 to exclude the site were unsuccessful. The proposal now heads to the MDC for adoption at a final public hearing that could occur as early as March 6. The North Midtown Economic Development Plan can be downloaded from DMD’s site at: / RedevelopmentPlan-Final02-complete-sm.pdf Many supporting documents about the Midtown TIF are available under the Policy and Planning tabs at the Midtown Indianapolis Inc., website: HealyisadirectoroftheBroadRippleVillageAssociationandpresidentofits501(c)(3)fundraising arm, the Broad Ripple Alliance for Progress.

When I got an e-mail from Swig describing their band as, “the sexy stoner rock band that Indianapolis has been missing,” I knew that I had to explore their music. Mostly because I’ve never thought of sexy and stoner belonging in the same sentence. The message also said that, “Swig offers a unique blend of Indie-Rock and Blues permeated with deep grooves, impassioned vocals and smoky, sultry, undertones.” And they sure do. The trio is celebrating the release of their EP and will be joined by stellar lineup of bands. They will be appearing with The Kickaways (Cincinnati OH), Dell Zell and No Pit Cherries. The show promises to be great!

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.

contributions from individuals. So far, the organization is doing well with donations. “Our biggest challenge right now is trying to connect with pet families who are having trouble providing adequate food for their cats and dogs,” stated Ms. Alt. “It’s been amazing how many people didn’t even know there were two pet food pantries out there. We really are hoping to get the message to people in the 46220 zip code and people nearby. Even if they don’t need help, they may know someone who does, they can let them know,” she emphasized. CCPFP is a supplemental food program. In other words, the pantry provides food on a short-term, temporary basis to help families provide adequate food for their pets during financial hardship. Studies have shown that inability to feed pets can be a contributing factor to increased surrenders to shelters. Pets also need proper and sufficient food in order to remain healthy. Ms. Alt is “mom” to two full-blooded poodles. In addition to Callie, a standard who was adopted from a rescue organization, she shares her home with Casper, a miniature. She lives and works in Broad Ripple and can often be seen walking both her “kids” on the Monon Trail during nice weather. Certain criteria are required to receive assistance from the CCPFP. Details can be found on their website at: Questions about guidelines and assistance can also be answered at: or by sending a message to Ms. Alt via the Callie Cares Inc. Facebook page at: www.

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

Butler's Spring '13 Woods Lecture Series

Admission for all events in the series is free and open to the public without tickets. For more information, call (317) 940-9269. Frances Champagne - 7:30 p.m. March 6 - Atherton Union Reilly Room “Epigenetic and Early Life Experiences” - Frances Champagne is an associate professor in the Department of Psychology at Columbia University and a Sackler Scientist with the Sackler Institute for Developmental Psychobiology at Columbia University. Her doctoral and post-doctoral research was focused on the neurobiology of maternal care and the epigenetic effects of mother-infant interactions. Studies in rodents suggest that the quality of maternal care received in infancy can lead to long-term changes in offspring gene expression and behavior. Champagne’s current and ongoing research explores the implications of these influences for the transmission of behavior across generations and the molecular mechanisms through which these effects are achieved.

If you are 18 or older, just show up at a hike (see for the schedule) and sign in as a guest. You don’t have to know anyone, but you will by the end of the hike. The distance is listed for all hikes as well as the terrain, surface, and speed, so you can select the experience you want. After you’ve hiked with the club twice as a guest, you are eligible to join. You can also check out the club’s Facebook page for information. Beginning or returning hikers?

CLUE: D equals S

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 bottom row which contains 1-2-4-5-6-8. The 9 in the left section of the bottom row eliminates the spaces to the right of the 4. The only place left is directly above the 5. You have learned one technique needed to solve Sudoku puzzles. There are many more.

Heard it on the Grapevine..... Pour a glass of wine and enjoy the latest book by Indiana's own Dr. Richard Vine. "The Curious World of Wine: Facts, Legends, and Lore About the Drink We Love So Much" is chock full of "wow!" stories and anecdotes. It's a page turner as Dr. Vine has spent plenty of time and research uncovering the true story behind wine. And the fun stuff too. Available at local wine shoppes or on line at Another new wine book focuses on the person drinking the wine rather than the juice in the glass. "Why You Like the Wines You Like" by Tim Hanni kind of turns a lot of previous beliefs about wine upside down. Is the glass half full or half empty? Think twice after reading this book. Also available at Local wineries including Grateful Goat Vineyards, River City, Harmony, Rettig Hill, Turtle Run, Huber, Oliver, and Owen Valley will be part of the annual WFYI Indy Winefest on Saturday March 1st. Easley Winery plans to pour its award winning Traminette and samples of fan favorites including Reggae Red and a new Chardonnay. Tix available on line for the March 1st event at Crowne Plaza Union Station in downtown Indy. What's up with Indiana wineries and the legislature this year? Experts say discussions about allowing wineries to wholesale its own wines without going thru a distributor and creating tax breaks and support to encourage more farmers to grow wine grapes in the state. February is "Go RED" month for the American Heart Association as it raises awareness and reaches out to WOMEN to take care of their hearts and not just those of the many that they care for each day. Some "RED FRIENDLY" wines include Colby Red, Cosentino Ol Red, 14 Hands Hot to Trot Red. All available at local wine shoppes and offer up smooth, juicy, low tannin, high pleasure, red fruit flavors.

Phewy to the Flu! Certainly you are all aware that this cold/flu season has been infamously worse than any year in the past several. The primary reasons for this years’ increase a more dominant strain and the fact that this flu season started early. And it is definitely evident at our studio given the high number of cancellations due to illness. I often brag about how little I become ill…however it did knock me on my butt for a couple of days. And crawling under the covers seems like a much better idea than exercise. However, don’t necessarily let yourself off the hook to play “hooky” on your workout. Depending on the type of sickness, exercise may actually help you recover or prevent becoming sick in first place. However, there is a fine line so follow the guidelines in determining whether or not to lace up those sneaks! • Exercise is usually OK if your signs and symptoms are all "above the neck" — symptoms you may have with a common cold, such as runny nose, nasal congestion, sneezing or minor sore throat. Consider reducing the intensity and length of your workout, though, or you may feel worse. Instead of going for a run, take a walk, for example. And of course listen to your body. If you feel like you may be pushing it too much you’re probably right. • Don't exercise if your signs and symptoms are "below the neck" — such as chest congestion, hacking cough or upset stomach. • Don't exercise if you have a fever, fatigue or widespread muscle aches. When and Why is it a GOOD idea to get in physical activity while under the weather? Physical activity can clear your nasal passages by releasing adrenalin, which conveniently acts as a natural decongestant. In addition, people who exercise on a regular basis tend to have more effective immune systems, which directly relates to a shorter and less severe bout of symptoms. Regular and moderate exercisers also have higher levels of macrophages, which are cells that attack bacteria. Studies have shown that those who exercise report half or less sick as those who do not. When and Why it is a BAD idea to get in physical activity while under the weather? High intensity exercise can actually make your illness more severe and or prolong recovery. The reason for this is a release of certain hormones that can cause a temporary decrease in the proper function of the immune system. When you perform a hard exercise session, you significantly increase the release of cortisol, which is your body’s “fight and flight” stress hormone. This can raise blood pressure and cholesterol levels, and simultaneously suppress the immune system. If you have the flu, it is imperative to rest. Fighting the flu requires nearly all the strength of your immune system, and your illness may be aggravated by dehydration or muscle fatigue that occurs during exercise. You would truly be fighting against yourself if you attempt to exercise with the flu; and do more harm than good. What type of exercise is best? Moderate cardio such as walking or a light jog and light resistance training are the best recommendations to attain recovery benefits. If the weather allows, take it outdoors. If you must venture to the gym keep this in mind: None of the other gym-goers want to catch your cold. Try to go during less busy times and thoroughly wipe down all equipment you touch and use hand sanitizer. In summary, be smart and realistic. A day or two of rest when you have the flu or other illnesses below the neck likely won’t affect your performance. When you’ve got a common cold, there’s also something to be said about the act of getting dressed, leaving the house and moving around- it can help you feel more like you are still among the living, even when you’re feeling miserable.

January BRVA Zoning meeting By Alan Hague The January meeting of the Broad Ripple Village Association (BRVA) Land Use and Development Committee met on January 22 at Broad Ripple United Methodist Church at 62nd and Guilford Avenue. There were three items on the agenda. 1) 701 E. 62nd Street [J3 on map] - Avec Moi, the prepared meals-to-go shop at 62nd and College Avenue, has applied for a 2-way beer and wine, grocery carryout only, alcohol beverage permit. A few wines and beers would be offered for sale that pair with carryout meals. The committee voted to support this request. 2) 6515 Carrollton Avenue [C4 on map] - Petition #2012-UV2-022 CD #3, Zoned D-4 (FF), C-3 (FF) Charles L. Mong, III, by Elizabeth J. Wysong Berg, requests a Variance of use of the Dwelling Districts Zoning Ordinance to provide for a bakery and coffee house, with retail sales and outdoor seating. Hearing scheduled for February 12 at the City-County Building. This proposal is to open a small French bakery in the house at 6515 Carrollton Avenue. Currently Greg Smith and Associates Architects are at that location. The plans are for a retail portion of the bakery for purchasing baked good and coffee and also a private room for club meetings, birthday parties, etc. The bakery would include a 23' x 20' patio for 3 or 4 small tables. The committee voted to support this request. 3) 1002 Broad Ripple Avenue [G6 on map] - Lor Corp is proposing a three-story building on the site of the United Package Liquor store on the triangle of land bounded by Broad Ripple Avenue, Winthrop Avenue, and the Monon Trail. The new building would roughly occupy the portion of the lot that is currently the south parking lot. The area currently occupied by the existing building would be the new parking lot. This building would include bike racks on the Monon Trail side and would have a small park on the north point. Lighting for the trail would be on the east side of the building. A national quickservice restaurant is planned for the ground floor, with commercial office space on the 2nd and 3rd floors. This proposal was not voted on as it was a preliminary presentation.

Right in my Own B a c k y a r d by Brandt Carter Unraveling Love’s Symbol ♥

Random Ripplings

Fat Dan's Deli at 815 Broad Ripple Avenue has closed. The Gazette has heard they plan to reopen at another location.

One of the first shapes I ever drew was a heart. Scribing a curve and then trying to match the other side proved challenging, but once I learned to fold red construction paper, draw one half, and cut around that line to open a perfectly symmetrical heart, I was unstoppable at making Valentines. As I grew up, each year’s heart designs became elaborate with fancier decorations. Small wonder this season of hearts has always been a favorite. Once again I will be among the millions presenting loved ones with heart-shaped cards, candy, and trinkets. ♥ This year has me wondering how the heart shape came to be the symbol of affection and love. ♥ The answer just might have to do with a North African plant. During the seventh century B.C., an ancient city had a lucrative trade in a rare, now-extinct plant known as silphium. It was so important to the city’s economy that the plant’s image was minted on coins. These plants looked like the heart shape we know today. From still another perspective, the Catholic Church traces the modern heart shape to the 17th century when Saint Margaret Mary Alacoque had a vision of it surrounded by thorns. This symbol became known as the Sacred Heart of Jesus and was associated with love and devotion; it began appearing often in stained-glass windows and other church icons. While the Sacred Heart may have popularized the shape, most scholars agree it existed much earlier than the 1600s. ♥ Less romantic ideas about the origin of the heart’s shape persist as well. Some claim the modern heart shape simply came from botched attempts to draw an actual human heart, the organ that the ancients, including Aristotle, believed contained all human passions. The medieval tradition of courtly love reinforced the shape's association with romance. Still, hearts can be found in many nonromantic applications as well, such as one of the suits on playing cards and in tapestries and paintings. Hearts proliferated when the exchange of Valentines gained popularity in 17th-century England. At first the notes were simple, but Victorians made the tradition more elaborate, employing the heart shape in combination with ribbons and bows. ♥ Bonus Explainer: Why do we single out February 14 to celebrate romance? It's said to be the day St. Valentine, a third century Roman priest, was executed. Legends about Valentine vary. Some say he was killed for illegally marrying Roman soldiers; others claim it was for helping Christians escape punishment at the hands of a pagan emperor. Just before his death, it's believed that he sent an affectionate note to the beautiful daughter of his jailer—the very first Valentine. ♥ Perhaps all this background will find you feeling more enlightened as well as delighted by receiving a Valentine this year. Once again, I’ll be ever so appreciative of all those hand-cut or drawn hearts, particularly if they come from children who are connecting to centuries of tradition in expressing love. ♥ Brandt Carter, artist, herbalist, and naturalist, owns Backyard Birds at 2374 E. 54th Street.
