Naptown Boogie in a recent concert.

Naptown Boogie By Mario Morone Longtime Broad Ripple resident Adam Price and his wife Trinia are blazing a musical trail with their diverse band Naptown Boogie, covering a repertoire of rhythm & blues, top 40, pop, dance, soul and classic rock from the 1960s to present day music. Their set list includes songs from across the musical spectrum. “We play a lot of complex music, from Blood Sweat & Tears to Sade or a James Bond medley to Led Zeppelin, anything out there is fair game when it comes to this band and we add horns to everything! We played 51 shows in 2012, all high profile top end clubs, casinos and private events. Half the band reads music and half the band plays by ear. When it comes time to tweak a song, it makes great audio, having trained and untrained musicians, combining jazz, rock and classical musicians together is quite a concoction. It’s a fantastic mix of structure and improvisation,” Price explained. “We cover a tenth of what other local bands are playing. Audiences have really embraced it. Yes, we play the hits,” Price noted, “just not the same hits as our competitors ….why go see a band play the same set list as everyone else? It makes absolutely no sense to me.” Price was born into a musical family and took to drumming at an early age. “I was the founding member of a Led Zeppelin Tribute band called ‘Evermoore’ which was together for 15 years and toured all over the country. I shared the stage once each with David Clayton Thomas and Joe Cocker. I also toured with 3 Dog Night’s lead singer Chuck Negron for six weeks when I was hired as his drummer back in ’96 or ’97,” he recalled. Naptown Boogie is composed of Adam Price, band leader/drums. His wife Trinia is a long-time alumna of the Indy music scene. She is the female lead singer and flute player and in Adam’s opinion is one of the best front persons in the Midwest. In the past, she has been in such notable bands as: “Dr. Bop & Headliners, Rock Doll and founding member of Trinia & the Gypsies. She sang the National Anthem for the Indy 500 in 2005 and at the RCA Championships in the same year. Paul Schafer and Neil Broeker play alto and tenor saxophones, respectively. Neil formerly toured with the 5th Dimension and Paul appeared in a recording session with the Coasters and has spent 20 years with his other gig, Roadhouse. Their photo courtesy of Adam Price guitar player, Eric Anderson, Adam and Trinia Price of Naptown Boogie. is a musical mainstay on the Broad Ripple scene since the mid-1980s; he has played with FM Pop, the Shakes, Red Eye and the Fuglees. Chris Brown on trumpet performs with the Indianapolis Wind Symphony. Eric Evans, also on trumpet, toured with George Clinton and P-Funk. Bassist Leo Thompson has worked with Koko Taylor, Ronnie Mack, Roadmaster, Johnny Winter, Albert Collins and B.B. King. He has also worked on the soundtrack and was an extra in the movie Beautiful Dreamer. “I also have a keyboard player from Chicago by the name of Todd Brown who just joined us and he is fantastic! He was the longtime keyboardist in the band R-Gang - they were voted best R&B group in Chi town 12 years running and

I have a new male lead singer, Tim Dunn - great range, great front man, formerly with Lady Di and the Kings and Band Wagon. I regard everyone in this band as the best of the best players in the region, there are none better,” Price said. Band members’ musical backgrounds are just as diverse as their day jobs. “There is a stem cell research scientist, Indiana Housing Authority employee, two teachers, a professional painter, managers, IU Med Center employee and Trinia owns her own business, “Complexions” in Broad Ripple. Everybody comes from a vastly different background and because of that, we have a unique sound and approach. We’re the only band in town covering this much diverse material, including: Blood Sweat & Tears, Chicago, Kool & the Gang, Earth Wind & Fire, Steely Dan, Tower of Power, Marvin Gaye, Sade, Peter Gabriel, Joe Cocker and Sting, to name just a few of dozens we perform,” Price noted. You can see and hear the band’s videos and audio at with fan reviews at: Naptown Boogie can play at a variety of events, like concerts, casinos, weddings, corporate functions, anniversaries, award nights, bachelor parties, bachelorette parties, banquets, church services, community events, conventions, country clubs, dinner dances, fraternity functions, fund raisers, graduation parties, prom's, grand openings, hotels, resorts, private parties, block parties, reunions, fairs, festivals, jingles, movie and TV soundtracks and studio sessions. ”The diversity of the group and the music we play has kept people coming out to see us, which I think is the secret to our success. You have to set your own ground rules and follow your own instincts, not anyone else’s, which in our case is the music we choose to perform and our interpretation of it,” he emphasized. Price discussed the band’s current project: “We are working on a new promotional video with the Glass Eye Group from Zionsville. They filmed us at Latitude 39 with multiple cameras. Glass Eye usually works with musical artists outside Indiana and abroad. They do, however, work with local corporations and businesses which include commercials and presentations, they’ve set a new standard in video production and we’re going to be a part of it.” An April 6th video shoot featuring 10 songs is planned to provide Naptown Boogie greater exposure. Their appearance at the Palladium’s amphitheater in Carmel for a Humane Society fundraiser last August caught the attention of Jill Purcell, who is the assistant to the president of WTHR Channel 13 and consequently landed them the gig as entertainment for the station’s Christmas party at IMS Pavilion, which was one of Naptown Boogie’s high points for last year. They also played at the Columbus Arts Council on the grounds of the state courthouse last September before 4,000 people. These events have broadened the band’s growing audience. Prime Source Entertainment in Nashville, Tennessee is also interested in booking Naptown Boogie for multiple events, “We work with all of the major agencies as well as book ourselves,” Price said, which is another aspect of the band that he is involved in. Their next scheduled shows are March 15 at Britton Tavern in Fishers and March 22-23 at Aztar Casino in Evansville, where they will play for the sixth time on a stage that has graced dozens of national acts. This summer, they return to Bella Vita’s on the marina (a personal favorite of the band’s) for multiple dates at Geist Reservoir starting June 1st. Current touring dates are at: link with more to be announced. They can be contacted for entertainment needs at: www. Naptown Boogie’s varied musical catalog and instrumental virtuosity make them a must see band as they expand their musical presence.

All three of the bands are wonderful. Don’t let the fact that it is on Sunday evening turn you off. The show is early and Downton Abbey is over for the season. The Strugglers are part of Indianapolis music history. Jack Clarke, Dave Langfitt, Joe Langfitt, Kevin Hughey, Stanley Smith, and Scott Ballantine started playing together in 1969. Their sound was unique; a mix of roots rock, country, blues, and jazz. They were the house band at The Hummingbird (now Birdy’s) and the Patio (now LAVA). Stanley moved to Austin, TX in the late 1980s, and the band now only plays when Stanley is in town. Lucky us – he’ll be here for the show. Andra Faye is a real-life cover girl. Her beautiful self is on the cover of Mandolin Magazine. They The Strugglers crowned Andra the “First Lady of Blues Mandolin.” You might know Andra from her long-time stint in Saffire – The Uppity Blues Band. She’s now living in Indianapolis and has surrounded herself with a talented band. Andra Faye and The Rays are always a delight. Rounding out the evening is the talented Randy King and The New Positions. Randy is an excellent songwriter and I promise you’ll be bopping along to his songs. The New Positions feature excellent musicians, including guitar player extraordinaire, Erich Anderson. You can purchase tickets before the show at:

Yes, I said ‘ukulele duo.’ Voted “Best Old Band” in St. Louis in 2011, the Dawgs put their unique musical touch on jazz and rock favorites and are excellent songwriters. As a special treat, they’ll be joined by North Carolina percussionist, Lee Kram. The show is house concert style. Feel free to bring a dish for the pitch-in and your own drinks. If you haven’t been to the hostel this is the perfect chance to check it out.

Corps holds Indy North levee public open house By Martin Chittum On February 7, from 5pm-7pm, the Indianapolis Department of Public Works, together with the US Army Corps of Engineers (Louisville District) held a public open house regarding the ongoing Indy North Levee project at St. Paul's Episcopal Church, located at 6050 N. Meridian. Representatives from the Department of Public Works and the Corps of Engineers were there to give information and answer questions regarding “Phase IIIB” of the Flood Damage Reduction Project. The intention of this project is to eventually provide “300 Year” flood protection from the White River to areas that are now considered at risk of flooding. The location of this stage of the project will be along the White River, between Kessler Boulevard on the north, and the Riviera Club on the south. The earthen levee will be 11 feet high, 75 feet wide, with a 12 foot crown. The project will have negligible effect on traffic in the area during construction. In some instances, this will be replacing inadequate levees which are already existing. Diagrams showing the visible height of the levee at various addresses along its path were on display. This project has met with some controversy because of the perceived lack of protection, and possible increased chance of flooding, to the Rocky Ripple neighborhood. Carol Labashosky of the Corps of Engineers addressed these concerns for residents of Rocky Ripple who still worry about the impact of this project. She stressed that this is an ongoing project of several phases with the end goal of flood protection for the entire affected area, including Rocky Ripple. Flood protection won't be fully realized until the levee is hydraulically connected to high ground at both ends. It is acknowledged that it will be some time in the future before this goal can be achieved. Availability of funding was cited as one of the reasons for the slow pace of the project. Residents of Rocky Ripple also expressed their concern that the ongoing construction may increase the chance of severe flooding in their neighborhood. By law, the Corps of Engineers cannot willingly do anything that would have a negative impact on the status quo of the neighborhood's current state. This was communicated to the residents, but they still seemed skeptical, citing a perceived increase in flooding in recent years which they believe may have been caused by various other unrelated constructions which have taken place upstream. Ms. Labashosky acknowledged that while it may be possible unrelated construction have affected floodwaters, she assured that the Corps of Engineers has taken every precaution to ensure their work has no negative impact on the neighborhood or the environment.

If you regularly read my column you know I have a passion for three topics: veterans, pets and shopping local. So let’s tackle two of the three in one swoop – vets and pets. I missed seeing the New Year’s day Rose Parade on TV. Later I read in business publications that Dick Van Patten’s Natural Balance Pet Foods long-standing tradition of having a float in the parade took it to another level. This year their float honored military dogs who risk their lives everyday protecting their handlers. The floral float, named CANINES WITH COURAGE, featured a replica of the new Working Dog Teams National Monument with dogs and handlers from every military service branch riding on it alongside the designer John Burnam, a Viet Nam veteran military dog handler. Burnam, who received the Legion of Merit, Bronze Star and Purple Heart said of his dog…. “He saved my life and saved the lives of others by alerting on ambushes, snipers and booby traps. I wanted to give something back to these animals that have done so much and asked for so little, except for food and water and the love of their handlers.” Sculptor of the National Monument, Paula Slater, has depicted a Doberman, German Shepherd, Labrador Retriever and Belgian Malinois, all breeds used in wars. They are represented with a bronze handler standing more than 9 feet tall and weighing 1,500 pounds. Each dog is about 5 feet tall and weighs 550 pounds. The figures will stand on a pedestal with the words ARMY, NAVY, AIR FORCE, COAST GUARD, MARINES. It will soon be in place at Lackland Air Force Base in San Antonio. The location was chosen as the site for the monument because that’s where most of the nation’s military dogs are trained. Legislation authorizing establishment of the monument was introduced in 2007, signed in 2008 by President George W. Bush then amended and signed by President Barack Obama. To raise funds for the monument and its maintenance, Natural Balance pledged more than one million dollars and created a jerky bark treat sold by Petco. Maddie’s Fund, a family-funded pet rescue foundation, also signed on as a corporate sponsor. I am heading off to sunny Orlando for Global Pet Expo, the world’s largest pet trade show. I think I’ll just stop by the Natural Balance Pet Food booth and tell them thank you for supporting our military veterans and providing a national monument to the dog war heroes. And while I’m there I might just get a peek at Tillman. He’s the bulldog who started the skateboarding craze that inspired our own Indianapolis downtown skating bulldog and Butler Blue III.

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

Kevin Schloneger Named Edward Jones Principal

Kevin Schloneger, an Edward Jones financial advisor in Indianapolis for the past 12 years, was recently named a principal with the firm’s holding company, the Jones Financial Companies, LLLP. Kevin's office is located in Broad Ripple at 838 suite B 65th Street [C4 on map]. He is one of only 37 individuals chosen from more than 42,000 associates across the United States and Canada to join the firm’s 336 principals. Schloneger, a native of Wauseon, Ohio, attended Goshen College, where he earned a bachelor’s degree in mathematics. He taught math at Broad Ripple High School for five years before joining Edward Jones in 2001. In addition to serving as a financial advisor, Schloneger is also an Edward Jones regional leader, guiding and supporting more than 50 financial advisors located in central Indiana. Schloneger and his family – wife, Lisa, and two children, Marie and Nolan – will remain in Indianapolis, where Schloneger will continue serving investors throughout the area. He says, “I joined Edward Jones because I believe in the firm’s commitment to individual investors, and I respect its partnership management structure. It’s a great privilege to become actively involved in that management as a principal.” Jim Weddle, managing partner of Edward Jones, says, “Kevin has proved to be an outstanding leader in our firm. I’m very pleased to welcome him into the partnership and look forward to his future contributions to the firm.” Edward Jones provides financial services for individual investors in the United States and, through its affiliate, in Canada. Every aspect of the firm’s business, from the types of investment options offered to the location of branch offices, is designed to cater to individual investors in the communities in which they live and work. The firm’s 12,000-plus financial advisors work directly with nearly 7 million clients to understand their personal goals – from college savings to retirement – and create long-term investment solutions that emphasize a well-balanced portfolio and a buy-and-hold strategy. Edward Jones embraces the importance of building long-term, face-to-face relationships with clients, helping them to understand and make sense of the investment options available today. In January 2013, for the 14th year, Edward Jones was named one of the best companies to work for by FORTUNE Magazine in its annual listing. The firm ranked No. 8 overall. These 14 rankings include top 10 top-10 finishes, consecutive No. 1 rankings in 2002 and 2003, and consecutive No. 2 rankings in 2009 and 2010. FORTUNE and Time Inc. are not affiliated with and do not endorse products or services of Edward Jones. Edward Jones is headquartered in St. Louis. The Edward Jones website is located at, and its recruiting website is Member SIPC.

Poetic Thoughts

by C.W. Pruitt II

The poem below is a tribute to the mystical saxophone artist John Coltane.

St. John Coltrane He could improvise, pulling note out of ether. The natural mystic extends his horn and reaches out. He is rewarded for his supplication by the eternal physics of jazz. And we witness to the beauty and perfection of the sounds of St. John Coltrane hear the Holy Spirit and anticipate it eagerly on the other side. C.W. Pruitt II Aug. 28, 2012

2013 "It Takes a City" Taylor Symposium

Exploring strategies to prevent bullying and encourage tolerance and respect is just one of the topics for discussion as Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis presents the 24th annual Joseph T. Taylor Symposium. The 2013 symposium takes place from 8 a.m. to 2:15 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 27, at the IUPUI Campus Center, 420 University Blvd. The theme is “It Takes a City: Toward a Diverse and Humane Community.” The symposium also focuses on the use of art, architecture, city planning and the Internet to bridge ethnic, religious, professional and lifestyle differences in order to bring back a sense of community in cities in an age of hyper-individualism. Speakers from IUPUI, Indiana University Bloomington, Butler University, Ball State University and Purdue University will participate in the event. Representatives of Big Car Gallery, the Indianapolis Urban League and the Bully Prevention Alliance will also be part of the

day’s sessions. Educator and civil rights and gay liberation activist Gaye Todd Adegbalola will address the symposium theme during her musical-performance-based keynote presentation at the symposium luncheon. Adegbalola, a celebrated singer and musician, strives to provide a voice for those marginalized by society. The luncheon also includes the presentation of the Joseph T. Taylor Excellence in Diversity Awards. The annual symposium honors Joseph T. Taylor, the first dean of the School of Liberal Arts at IUPUI. Taylor is remembered for his commitment to dialogue and diversity. The Excellence in Diversity awards acknowledge individuals, projects, programs and groups that exemplify Taylor’s commitment to diversity and dialogue. “Each year’s Taylor Symposium provides an opportunity to think about and discuss matters of importance to our city and all cities,” said William Blomquist, dean of the School of Liberal Arts. “How to promote and sustain the benefits we gain from our diversity and weave them into a stronger fabric of community is an ideal example of a vital topic for Indianapolis and elsewhere.” Before the luncheon, a poster session featuring research and information on building community in Indianapolis will take place from 11:15 a.m. to noon in Room 405 of the Campus Center. The School of Liberal Arts at IUPUI sponsors the annual Taylor Symposium. The 2013 symposium, presented in conjunction with the Department of Philosophy, part of the School of Liberal Arts, and the IUPUI Center for Service and Learning, is part of Indianapolis’ IndyTalks Series, a citywide effort to foster a sense of community through respectful and creative civic dialogue.

Symposium sessions are free of charge and open to the public. Individual luncheon tickets are $40. All luncheon seating is reserved with payment. Corporate or community patron tables for 10 may also be reserved for $550. For additional details or to register, visit the School of Liberal Arts website.

CLUE: P equals E

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

Love from Lidia: Lesson 101 and more to come! Most people know Lidia Bastianich from watching her PBS series "Lidia's Italy". Or cooking with her QVC line of bakeware. Or adding her Italian inspired line of food products to meals. Or dining at one of her 6 restaurants across the US. Or doing all of the above at her Shangri-La for Italian wanna be's and buys at "Eataly" in NYC . Plus she blogs and travels with consumers via her daughter Tonya's business. And her son Joe is running the thriving family wine business from her home land. And THEN there are her cook books.... When you go to her website it is mind boggling at all of the things that this talented woman accomplishes. AND she blogs! But meet her in person and you know why. She truly DOES love to cook. And what you see/bake/eat/visit/read from her culinary empire IS the real deal. Because it all IS Lidia. I had the pleasure of meeting and interviewing her last week when she made her first visit to Indianapolis. And it was a whirlwind. And I got her in the eye of her Indy visit hurricane. She arrived on Thursday to lunch with local restaurant owners and sample them on her family's line of wines. (Bastianich Winery in Friuli region of Italy. Old world grapes blended with new world vines. Affordable. Made for food. And coming SOON to Indianapolis!! As soon as I can taste them, I will review and let you know when and where you can buy.) Then a meet and greet cooking demo for WFYI viewers/listeners at Clark's Appliance. Friday meant more interviews, photos and another VIP reception. Then it was off to Ontario, Canada. And she smiled the entire time! I asked her a plethora of questions all of which she delightedly and detailed for me in response. I don't want to use this entire issue to relate, so I will edit my column this week and continue to the next with highlights of this engaging conversation with this sincere and talented cook. AND probably what she wants to be known for most, as a loving and nurturing Nonna. Italian for "grandma". Lidia celebrates her 65th birthday this month and is letting her 5 grandchildren call the shots. So what are they doing? Taking her to Anguilla where they don't want Nonna to cook but rather to spend time with them. She said that will be hard to do as she loves to go into the kitchen wherever she goes and when a new cuisine is presented, she wants to taste and learn how and where and why it developed. She said she loves the energy of Indianapolis and its food scene. She thought the people she met were very friendly. One of her 6 restaurants is also in the Midwest, Kansas City, so she talked much about the delightful and delicious game in this area that can readily be incorporated into her easy to make, wonderful to eat dishes in her latest cookbook, Lidia's Favorites. She said staples in every kitchen to make ANYTHING taste great should include virgin olive oil, onions, garlic and dried legumes. She said that introducing those aromas and flavors are important for all families. For the adults and the children. She said the sooner babies learn to smell and know the aromas of foods, such as vegetables–the easier it will be when they start to eat them. Lidia came to America when she was 12 and both of her parents worked. She said her mother always started something simmering on the stove in the morning but told HER how to finish it when she and the rest of the family came home.

In Pain? MELT it Away!


Hello Readers! As you may have noticed, I enjoy having other trainers from So.Be. Fit. write articles from time to time in their own voice to share their views of health and wellness. I think it is a fun way for you to hear thoughts from another’s perspective. This time around I had my massage therapist (and brother I’ve never had), share his passion with you. Arty is an awesome therapist and person and has literally brought me out of several injuries. Enjoy!! - Laura

I’m excited to introduce a new way to get out and stay out of pain. My name is Arty Clark and I have been a massage therapist for 12 years. I am always on the lookout for ways to help people live better. The question I hear most often once I help people get out of pain is, “How do I stay out of pain?” Of course time and money always affect the answer. I have recently found the best way to live pain free. It’s called MELT. The following information has been taken from Sue Hintzman’s MELT website: What is MELT? The MELT Method is a breakthrough self-treatment system that restores the supportiveness of the body's connective tissue to eliminate chronic pain, improve performance, and decrease the accumulated stress caused by repetitive postures and movements of everyday living. This patent-pending, pro-active self-treatment technique is backed by science and acclaimed by thousands of devoted MELTers. MELT is truly for everyone! Even if you are pregnant, injured, post-surgery, overweight, sedentary, out of shape, have limited mobility, chronic pain, knee/ hip replacements, or bone disorders — you can still MELT. It’s the best starting point for any exercise program. MELT improves:

MELT reduces:

• flexibility & mobility

• aches & pains

• posture

• wrinkles & cellulite

• the results of exercise

• tension

• range of motion

• headaches

• sleep & digestion

• risk of injury

• overall well-being

When you attend a MELT class I will guide you through a series of movements on a MELT roller designed to rehydrate and balance your autonomic nervous system. How does MELT work? Day-to-day living creates tension within our bodies. Physical stressors range from sitting at a desk to running a marathon. Carrying children and heavy bags creates trapped tension, as does even the gentlest form of exercise. Emotional, mental, and environmental stressors such as processed foods, medications, environmental toxins and daily worries all build tension in the body. New science reveals that this “stuck stress” is literally trapped in our connective tissue, which surrounds every joint, muscle, nerve, bone, and organ. Unaddressed trapped stress causes connective tissue dehydration and cellular damage. This creates a domino effect that begins with aches and stiffness and leads to common health issues such as neck and low back pain, headaches, insomnia, digestive problems, and injury. Accelerated aging and chronic health problems can follow . . . leaving us with limited options such as medicine, surgery, and a sedentary lifestyle. However, when the connective tissue is hydrated and free of roadblocks, our bodies function at a more optimal level. MELT is a breakthrough technique that keeps our connective tissue and nervous system in top condition and slows down the aging process. MELT rejuvenates tissue hydration and relieves the tension of day-to-day life that gets trapped in our bodies. No other proactive approach directly treats the connective tissue—including nutrition, exercise, yoga, meditation, or vitamins. For more information you can check out For class times and availability you can look up Also, check out Sue Hintzman, creator of MELT, on the Dr. OZ show Feb 11th and 15th.

Right in my Own B a c k y a r d by Brandt Carter The Urge to Garden Now Because February can be such a cold, gray month for me, I start getting sentimental about my garden. The sore muscles, dirty fingernails, and soiled knees are just memories. Although February is late to start forcing some bulbs, I like tending to them as a way of giving my green thumb some exercise. Forcing bulbs is fun, takes little effort, and doesn’t require much gardening skill. I am partial to the amaryllis (showy, lush blossoms ranging from vivid red, peach, and apple blossom pink to snowy white). Narcissus (white, fragrant blooms) is another favorite. Once amaryllis bulbs bloom, I save them from year to year. I used to dig the bulbs into my garden so the green leaves could recharge, but more recently I have begun keeping them in their pots and then moving them outdoors once weather permits. When fall comes, I pull the bulbs from the pots, put them in a paper bag, and store them in the house to avoid frostbite. The leaves turn brown and crisp, ready to be discarded. Then all I have to do is remember where I stored them. Some years I have had to search. No matter whether I buy a new bulb or replant an old one, I always begin planting by putting a layer of styrofoam packing peanuts in the bottom of the clay pot for drainage (much lighter than rocks). I have taken to planting multiple bulbs in one pot because I like a profusion of blossoms. Then I put in a layer of soil and nestle in the bulb, covering only the bottom half with soil or moistened moss. I have learned amaryllis don’t need as much water when sprouting as they need when blooming. Once the bulb’s first green tip appears, I get excited to watch daily growth. Because I never label bulb colors from year to year, each blossom provides a surprise. I also save a few paper white narcissus bulbs. I know most of them are sold for Christmas, but when the grays of February and March drag on, a blooming flower is a breath of fresh air. Just a hint about growing these fragrant flowers so they don’t get so leggy that they fall over: Give them a nip of alcohol and keep them in the dark when rooting. I root my paper whites in gravel and fill with water just to cover the root level. Once the green shoots are about two inches high, I move the plantings into sun light, pour off the water, and add a solution of water and 4-6% alcohol. Yes, use booze. You can use any hard liquor (vodka, tequila, whiskey) or rubbing alcohol, but not beer or wine because of their sugar content. Here’s a formula I learned online: “To convert your booze to 5% alcohol, just divide the percentage alcohol by 5 and then subtract 1. That will tell you how many parts water to mix with your 1 part alcohol. Example: 40 divided by 5 = 8: 8 minus 1 = 7... 7 parts water to 1 part alcohol.” I make my mixture in an empty water jug and continue watering with the water/ alcohol solution for the duration. It seems that the solution stunts the green growth of the plant but not the bloom. While there are a few more hardy bulbs that can be forced indoors, I have not been as successful with tulips, daffodils, and hyacinths, particularly starting this far into winter. If you do not have bulbs but want just something green, try growing wheatgrass. All you need is a pot, a bit of soil and water plus seeds. Most health food stores should have red wheatgrass. Soak the seeds for a few hours. Then spread them on top of the soil in a container. Keep them very moist for the first several days until sprouting occurs. In seven days you can have a stand of grass that’s a reminder Spring comes next. Happy indoor gardening! Brandt Carter, artist, herbalist, and naturalist, owns Backyard Birds at 2374 E. 54th Street.
