Robert Easterling biography - ISB & Cummins By Mario Morone

mario@broadripplegazette.com

INDEX

Robert Easterling graduated from the Indiana School for the Blind in 1965. He recently discussed his time there as a student and his career. “I would say that the school provided me with an educational opportunity that I wouldn’t have received anywhere else. I was a partially sighted student. People don’t recognize that we have a visual impairment. In the public schools, it was hard to get the same instruction. Among the courses that I took were advanced math and science classes. There were many extra curricular activities like the Key Club (Kiwanis), chess, photography, ham radio clubs, track and wrestling that many students, including myself, participated in,” he recalled. “At ISB, we had the benefit of classes with small student-to-teacher ratios that permitted very interactive and highly effective learning. In math classes, we had the opportunity to gather very close to the blackboard where we could collectively participate in and follow problem solving. All of our teachers were not only skilled in their field of study, but also in how to accommodate students with limited or no vision. It was obvious that the teachers were highly committed to our success and created a learning environment where students could reach their full potential. My math teacher, Arlo Mock, took time out of his summer to teach an advanced trigonometry class where I was the only student. I needed

the class to get into Purdue University. He was not only a dedicated teacher, but also was a special mentor to me. We became good friends and stayed in touch the rest of his life. I consider myself fortunate to have had a mother who was also a public school special education teacher. She had the wisdom and courage to send me to ISB where I would have the best opportunity to prepare myself for college,” he said. After graduating from ISB, I went to Purdue University where I studied Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering Technology and took additional computer science courses,” he mentioned. “After graduating from Purdue in 1969, I was recruited by Cummins Engine Company in Columbus, Indiana mainly due to my interest in computer-based automation technology. When I started there, most manufacturing processes were manual and I had the opportunity to help develop their manufacturing technology. My unique combination of knowledge in manufacturing engineering and computer science acquired at Purdue was key to my advancement to management positions in manufacturing and quality engineering at Cummins largest engine production facility during the first half of my career,” Easterling noted. “Cummins was and is a very forward thinking company and allowed me to build a new organization of computer specialists, mechanical engineers and electrical engineers that introduced many new automation technologies. Robotics, automated engine test systems, 3D laser measuring systems, material management systems put computers on the shop floor controlling machines for the first time at Cummins. During the second half of my career, I worked in a corporate capacity to continue the development of manufacturing technology and propagate it worldwide throughout the company,” he explained. Easterling played a key role in helping advance and transform Cummins’ manufacturing processes in a similar way that ISB provided a quality education for him. He worked for Cummins 31½ years before retiring in February of 2001. “One of the things you look back upon is that when you’re a student at ISB is you become part of a family - a family of friends. The friendships that a student acquires there are life-long bonds. You look back on those times at what you have learned and experienced together. The world is changing and that’s where the school helps you. You make good friends in learning to cope with the changing world that we live in. We all understand each other’s situation. It’s a group of friends that we wouldn’t have any other way. Durward Hutchinson (ISB Superintendent from 1959 to 1988) was the head of a very special family of

students and faculty,” he reflected. “Durward did a lot to promote the education of the teachers to help students that were attending public schools. He introduced the idea that ISB, as a center of excellence for educating the blind, could broaden its reach and effectiveness by creating programs and seminars for students and teachers in public schools statewide. He also expanded ISB’s on-campus facilities and curriculums, including the ability to better accommodate blind students with additional disabilities. He was a really special person, very thoughtful and very nice. Durward was a 2008 recipient of the Hofsteter Award (Hank Hofsteter was a member of the American Counsel of the Blind of Indiana). This award is not given annually, but only on rare occasions to sighted individuals who have made an extraordinary lifetime commitment to serving the Blind of Indiana.” Easterling emphasized. “Durward had the vision to develop ISB’s curriculum inside and outside the classroom with sports, which was kind of unheard of at that time. D.J. Dunkin was a popular history teacher and Dan Wolcalski pioneered the wrestling and track team and athletic facilities. James “Moe” Haralson continued that legacy and was principal of the school. He took over the wrestling program after Dan retired and led them to numerous NCAA championships,” he said. “When I returned to ISB for a meeting many years later, I ran into Durward in the main building. He asked me if he could submit my name to the Governor to serve on the school’s advisory board. I said ‘yes’ and soon received an appointment to the board. I served from 1982 almost continuously until resigning from the Board around June 17, 2002. Easterling accepted a second invitation to return as a board advisor. “People like Durward and James Haralson were among many teachers and individuals who left their mark on ISB and the students’ lives. They collectively made the fabric of exceptional leadership that made this a great place. There is a sense of family here that is rededicated during Alumni Weekend where students and faculty return to get reacquainted. Anybody attending ISB has a second family here they will never forget. We are like brothers and sisters who learn together how to cope with our disabilities and survive in this world,” he noted. As a member is ISB’s Scholarship Committee, Easterling recently saw a student’s application that aspires to study engineering at Purdue and is acting as a mentor to him. The student will benefit from Easterling’s insights and experiences as Purdue student. “The gesture is in the culture of a vital process of helping people survive. At this point in my life as I look back at my days at ISB, my career and my own family, which includes two college-educated sons with careers and families of their own, clearly our lives would have been vastly different had it not been for the school and its incredibly dedicated staff. I feel a debt of gratitude that is far beyond words,” he concluded. Robert Easterling’s career and life-long friendship with Durward Hutchinson are among many inspiring stories in ISB’s history.

Record Store Day Saturday, April 20 Indy CD & Vinyl, LUNA music, Vibes - all-ages, free

This is the sixth year for Record Store Day, an event created to celebrate independent record stores. According to the Record Store Day website Indianapolis has seven indie record stores and three of them are in our neighborhood. How cool is that? Indy CD & Vinyl, Luna music, and Vibes are all participating. Recording artists produce special offerings (records, CDS, EPs) that can only be sold at the independent stores. In the first year of RSD ten musical artists participated, last year there were over 400. Not only do the stores have the RSD exclusive music they host in-store concerts and other activities from artesian craft fairs to cookouts. Record Store Day marks the start of springtime for me. It’s great to see everyone enjoying the day and our neighborhood. Check individual store Web sites for specific details.

If you don’t know Jude O’Dell, you’re missing out. She’s a wildly talented musician and artist. She’s a treasure-trove of old-timey music and fun. Her friends are throwing a party to show her just how much her community loves her. If you haven’t had the pleasure of meeting Jude yet, this is a good chance to do that. I’ve had the pleasure of meeting some wonderful and delightful people over the years, and this musical lineup includes a whole bunch of them: Michael Beck and John Alvarado Duo, Witch Hazel Valley People with Robin Harrison, John Barney and The Passengers, New Augusta Bluegrass Band with Dave Schroeder, The Chromatics, Dave Duvall and Allen Stratyner. There will be wine, beer, soft drinks, and snacks available. Bid on a range of goods and services offered in the silent auction and dance and laugh. Kick off the spring season with Jude and friends. This party promises to be as fun as Jude is – and that’s pretty darn fun!

Remember those talented high-school kids that I started writing about in 2008 or so? They called their band “Sanuk” in the beginning and changed their name to “hotfox.” shortly after that. Not only are they old enough to play in bars – and have been for a few years – they are sharing the stage with Brooklyn’s Midnight Spin. Midnight Spin is wrapping up a coast-to-coast tour after releasing their critically acclaimed record, Don’t Let Me Sleep. Midnight Spin and hotfox share a local connection - Cathedral High School. Oliver Hopkins and Michael Preuschl of hotfox. are CHS alumni, as is Ben Waters, Midnight Spin's bass player. The show promises to be great – say hello to the guys before they leave for summer internships and such.

Chad Mills and The Upright Willies Album Release Party Saturday, April 20 Birdy’s Bar and Grill - 2131 E. 71st Street 21+, doors 8:30, show 9:30, $10 (includes CD)

The Upright Willies are, Chad Mills (vocals, acoustic guitar), Bob Stewart (drums), Grover Parido (cello), William Rood (upright bass). Their sound is big fun, roots rock. I recently had the chance to hear Chad Mills play a few songs from the new Upright Willies album. I’ve come to expect great things from Chad’s songwriting and I wasn’t disappointed. He does a great job writing introspective songs chronicling the battles between head and heart. He balances those with lighthearted tap-yourfeet happy tunes too. “Lucy” is one of the fun songs, re-telling the tale (or is it tail?) of a doggy chase. I can’t wait to hear the whole record!

Barfly Comics 10 Year Anniv Party – with a bonus wedding! Saturday, April 20 Radio Radio - 1119 Prospect Street 21+, 9:00 pm, $10 donation to Second Helpings

Wayne Bertsch is the mad talent behind the Barfly Comics in NUVO newsweekly. He is celebrating his tenth anniversary of drawing the strips by a stellar lineup of bands that have been featured over the last decade. With over 500 comics drawn and several awards won, Wayne is celebrating in a unique way – by getting married. Yep, he and fiancé, Carol Ellison, are getting hitched on stage, and you’re invited! Wayne and Carol chose four of their favorite musical acts to help them celebrate. Five Year Mission have carved out quite a name for themselves writing a song for every episode of classic Star Trek series. Whether you know them from their many local concerts, their appearances on Indy Style, or their music video birthday message to George Takei that went viral, you are sure to be blown away by these guys. Up! Scumbag are easily the most prolific punk band to come out of Indianapolis. They released five full lengths records, and a split CD with Hate the Drake in the span of six years. They epitomize the DIY punk band ethics and never fail to get the walls shaking with their brand of stripped down, energetic, garage punk. Jenn Cristy came to attention as a back-up singer for John Mellancamp before wowing crowds as a great songwriter and musician in her own right. Her skills on the keyboard seem super-human and her soulful vocals are cut from the same cloth that made Adele, Duffy and Amy Winehouse critical darlings. The Danny Thompson Trio are the current project of Danny “Dr Roadkill” Thompson formerly of the Sloppy Seconds. No other musician in town is more associated with the Barfly Comic than Danny who has headlined the Elvis Birthday Bash every year. The trio concentrates on the later years of Elvis’ career bringing by covering favorites like “Suspicious Minds” and “Walk a Mile in My Shoes”. In lieu of wedding gifts, Carol and Wayne are asking for donations to Second Helpings, donating 100% of the ticket price to the nonprofit agency that rescues surplus food from the community, trains adults for meaningful careers in the foodservice agency, and prepares and delivers thousands of meals every day to other social service agencies – all at no cost. Carol and Wayne have asked me to collect money and tickets at the door. I that task is similar to being the guest book attendant, and I have some good practice at that, mostly from the early 1980s.

Public comment hearing held recently near Broad Ripple at the Indianapolis Hebrew Congregation on Meridian Street.

The new express bus routes would have fewer stops, have more frequent service, and use special buses which would have WiFi. Other enhancements include serving both Marion and Hamilton Counties as well as other counties in the region. One such route, dubbed the Red Line, would run from Greenwood to Carmel and serve Broad Ripple via College Avenue coming from downtown. It would continue north on College or possibly go north on Keystone after a stop at Glendale Mall. (SEE MAP) A final route for the Red Line is under study but will be decided by the end of the year according to Indy Connect. The plan requires enactment of enabling legislation by the state legislature. HB 1011 would allow voters in the region to authorize regional transit. The bill passed the Indiana House and is now pending before the Indiana Senate. The legislation itself would not raise taxes nor approve transit -- it would only allow regional voters to make such a decision. At a hearing held recently in the Senate Local Government Committee, over 140 organizations appeared in support of the bill. Appearing against were the Hamilton County Patriots who sponsored a conservative anti-transit witness who urged transit be contracted out to private companies and noted that transit project cost estimates always

exceed projections. Ron Gifford of Indy Connect countered that Indianapolis has gone forward with other projects (stadium, airport, etc.) and has managed to stay within budget. Even if the bill fails, two routes serve Broad Ripple today: The "#17 College" which runs from downtown, along Mass Avenue, up College to Broad Ripple and then onto Glendale Town Center (and the #17A which runs up College then turns at Kessler to go to Glendale Mall). The "#18 Nora" which runs from downtown up Meridian to Broad Ripple and then continues to 91st and Meridian (with the #18A going to Keystone at the Crossing). Note this route does not run on Sunday. Also, IndyGo is building a new transit station just south of the City County Building. They are also adding a new east-west line on 86th Street. These service enhancements are not dependent on Indy Connect going forward. For more information on Indy Connect, visit their website, IndyConnect.org Bill Malcolm is a freelance writer based in Broad Ripple. He can be seen on the Monon Trail with his bicycle or on one of the IndyGo routes serving the Ripple.

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

Air-Tan Celebrates 10 Years in the Broad Ripple Area

Local business Air-Tan is celebrating 10 years of business in the Broad Ripple area. Owner Angela Alney started the business with the intent to provide a healthy alternative to tanning beds and sun tanning - and the trend continues to move forward. “People love to be tan – and Air-Tan offers them a safe, healthy, instant alternative to UV rays” Alney said. “Air-Tan is a member of the community – with happy customers, long term employees and a thriving business”. Air-Tan has developed compelling differentiators to set itself apart from the crowd including: 1. A highly trained technician applies the tan to the customer (as opposed to a machine that sprays customers at other salons). 2. There is obsession about customer service and ensuring customer satisfaction 3. The salon is solely focused on providing airbrush tanning services The Air-Tan approach has proved so popular with its customers - that the company expanded in early 2013 with a second location in the Fishers area. Over the last 10 years, Air-Tan has serviced over 12,000 clients and provided approximately 75,000 spray tans at it’s Broad Ripple location. The company employs anywhere from 6-10 people at any time depending on the season. “We’re focused on air-brush tanning and giving our customers the best experience they’ve ever had”, Alney said. “Customer service is a priority for us and I believe it’s a competitive advantage – people want to be treated well” About Air-Tan Air-Tan is a salon experience that specializes in providing its customers with a safe, even looking tan in one 10-15 minute session. Air-Tan’s commitment is simple: provide the best service possible in a high quality, technician-applied, ultraviolet-free tanning experience in a salon environment. Air-Tan has salons in Broad Ripple (317.254.TANS) and Fishers (317.576.TANS). For more information please visit www.air-tan.com or www.facebook.com/airtanindy.

Waving And Weeping I wrote the following 2 thoughts on Feb. 11, 2013 while listening to music. The first poem is about Sting's song 'Love Is The Seventh Wave'. The second poem is about Al Green's remakes of the Bee Gees in general.

Jordan College of the Arts Announces the First Butler ArtsFest

A riot. A crushed uprising. A repressive regime. A human-rights movement. A new definition of dance, and a new language in music. Butler ArtsFest—eight days of music, theater, dance and art by Butler students and well-known Indianapolis professional groups—will showcase all that and more in an event centered around the theme of revolution. From April 18-28 on campus—mostly at Butler University’s new Howard L. Schrott Center for the Arts—festivalgoers will be able to see more than 40 performances and other events, including former Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra conductor Raymond Leppard leading the Butler Symphony Orchestra, Butler Ballet performing Paul Taylor’s version of The Rite of Spring, Butler Theatre performing Lunar Revolution 2.0, a piece created by the Butler Theatre Department and Grammy Award-nominated percussionist Bobby Sanabria performing with the Butler Big Band. For more information or to order tickets, visit www.butlerartsfest.com. “The impetus for Butler ArtsFest was to have Jordan College make an impact on the community, actively reaching out, actively bringing people onto campus,” said Ronald Caltabiano, dean of Butler’s Jordan College of the Arts. “It is also a way to bring together the four arts on campus – music, dance, theater and art – and find ways in which we can collaborate and share multiple views of particular ideas.” The revolutionary pieces to be performed include: -Paul Taylor’s ballet Le Sacre du Printemps (The Rehearsal) with live music—the twopiano version of Stravinksy’s The Rite of Spring, a piece that’s part of the repertoire now but was considered so revolutionary when it premiered in 1912 that audience members

rioted. -The futuristic Prague 1968, written to memorialize the crushed Prague Spring movement in Czechoslovakia. -Frederic Rzewski’s monumental The People United Will Never Be Defeated, written as a tribute to the Chilean people struggling against a new, repressive regime. -SEVEN: Journeys, monologues from the 2006 play written by seven female playwrights about seven women who led human rights movements in their countries. Ultimately, Caltabiano would like to see Butler ArtsFest grow into something resembling the annual Spoleto festival in Charleston, S.C., which runs for more than two weeks each spring and attracts audiences from all over the country. “Over time,” he said, “I hope this brings a significant amount of attention to the arts at Butler and has a positive impact on Indianapolis as a cultural center.”

Blice Edwards, a decorative painting and mural company founded in 1993 by Chris Blice and Jon Edwards, celebrates its 20th year in business by opening a new studio space called Studio 54, at 1101 E. 54th St., Indianapolis, IN, 46220. Studio F, in the Monon Shops. Their first studio in a garage just two blocks away at, coincidentally, 1101 E. 56th St. A mural in a tiny powder room of a Meridian-Kessler home was their first job. Today, their projects vary greatly. Most recently a 2,200 sq. ft. panoramic mural at Butler University; a huge sculptural mural in downtown Westfield, Indiana; and nursery murals for St. Vincent’s hospitals in Carmel and Fishers. Their color consultations, faux finishes, ceiling murals, polished plaster, trompe l’oeil, wood-graining, kids rooms, and painted canvas applications for wall and ceilings are just some of the services offered by this multi-faceted art and design company. Punctuality, consistency, and meeting the aesthetic sensibilities of residential and business projects have earned them great client loyalties. Local businesses like Posh Petals, Good Morning Mama’s, Village Cigar, Hilton Hotels, Elgin Water, Meridian Hills Country Club and Angie’s List have all trusted Blice Edwards with their decorative painting and design needs. Collaborations with creative designers and clients have led to projects involving transom windows, awnings, counter tops, wood floors, ceilings and all other surfaces that have require something unexpected. Every project is unique for each client, so nothing is ever replicated and everything is executed by hand. Studio 54 is open by appointment only, and, beginning this spring will open for First Friday gallery nights. Decorative painting workshops for the public will also be offered this spring as well. Please call (317) 259-4308 for more information about all services offered by Blice Edwards at Studio 54. www.BliceEdwards.com

Shortz has been crossword editor at The New York Times since 1993 and puzzlemaster for NPR’s Weekend Edition Sunday since 1987.

CLUE: T 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 an 6 in the left section of the top row which contains 2-4-5. The 6 in the middle section of the top row eliminates the spaces to the left of the 4. The 6 in the right section of the top row eliminates the spaces to the left of the 2. The 6 in the left section of the bottom row eliminates the spaces in the far left column. The only place left is directly to the left of the 5. You have learned one technique needed to solve Sudoku puzzles. There are many more.

alan@broadripplegazette.com The Broad Ripple Village Association (BRVA) Land Use and Development committee met for the March meeting on the 26th at Broad Ripple United Methodist Church. There were two presentations. First was for property located at 5901 College Avenue. This was a follow-up from the previous meeting. The plan for the building at Kessler and College, that currently houses Fox Glass Studios, is to reconfigure it into three retail spaces. Ambrosia Restaurant is to move from the current Westfield Boulevard location into the middle space of this building. Small retail stores would be selected for the remaining spaces. The petition before the City of Indianapolis is to rezone the parking lot section of the property from D-5 to C-3. The committee voted to support this proposal. Last was for the property located at 6340 Ferguson Street. Audio Solutions, currently located at 64th and Guilford Avenue, plans to move into this building after renovating and adding a second floor. There was much discussion about this unusual block on Ferguson that leads to the canal. Some members of the committee felt that the guidelines of the Envision Broad Ripple plan should be implemented in this project. That would include restructuring the parking on Ferguson and adding 6340 Ferguson Street sidewalks. Others felt that this would be an unnecessary burden for this project in this specific block of Ferguson. The committee voted to support the project with stipulations of following the Envision plan if the adjoining property at 815 Main Street becomes retail. The next meeting of the committee is scheduled for April 23 at 6pm. The public is always welcome to observe.

Harry Marshall’s high-flying tip-in with .9-second remaining lifted the Indiana Diesels to a 104-102 victory over the Sauk Valley Predators in an IBA-PBL pro basketball game Sunday, March 24, at Broad Ripple High. The Diesels’ Billy Pettiford began the game-deciding play by grabbing a long rebound in the Predators’ front court. The 6-foot-8 former IUPUI player dribbled into Indiana’s front court and missed a contested jump shot in the lane. The 6-foot Marshall, a former star at Indiana’s Owen Valley High, launched himself and, above the rim, reached back with his left hand to tap the ball into the basket. “We made a quick (defensive) stop and we didn’t want to call a time out,” Marshall explained. “We wanted to attack. Billy was going for the basket and I made my mind up to go for it if he missed. The ball came off the front of the rim and I was almost past it.” It was a game of firsts for the Diesels, who moved from Columbus, Ind., to Indianapolis in February. They won their season opener in their initial game on their home court and it was also their first game in the IBA-PBL, formed for the 2013 season from a merger between the Independent Basketball Association and the Premier Basketball League. Diesels were a member of the PBL in 2012 and began playing in the ABA in 2010 It was the first defeat for the Predators (4-1), from Sterling, Ill., who had opened the season with four straight victories. “We won our first game against a team playing its fifth,” said Diesels’ coach Aaron Hogg, who won his first game as a pro coach. “We made a lot of bonehead mistakes and we still won the game. If we can eliminate mistakes like those, we have a chance to be pretty good.” Marshall played four seasons at Indiana State and has spent the past three playing in The Netherlands, the NBA Development League with the Canton (Ohio) Charge and Germany. He returned home early from Germany to be with his wife for the birth of his son, Harry III, on Jan. 30. “I couldn’t miss that,” Marshall said. Playing point guard, Marshall scored 17 points and was outstanding on defense.

Ignore Haters and Be Greater! While at lunch with my mother the other day, she mentioned seeing a show on PBS that featured the first woman that ran in the Boston Marathon. Since I am scheduled to run this race on April 15th this year I was especially intrigued about learning more about her story, and I found a video clip online that was very interesting, and with a very powerful message. Here is a summary of her story: Although long distance running was considered very inappropriate for women at the time, in 1967, Katherine Switzer, determined to run the Boston Marathon, filled out the entry form with her initials K.V. Switzer to disguise her sex. The race had been male only for 70 years since its inaugural run in 1897. With the support of her boyfriend and coach running along with her, she began the historic run in a positive manner hearing yells of support from other runners and spectators and she beamed with pride. However, all of the sudden, a flatbed truck with photographers and the race director pulled up to Katherine; the race director jumped from the truck and started chasing and clawing at Katherine yelling “Get the hell out of my race and give me those numbers!”. After much scrambling and yelling, her boyfriend knocked the race director off into the grass as the press journalists muttered derogatory comments such as “What are you trying to prove?” and “Are you a crusader?” After the press truck left, Katherine and her team ran on, the mood became very quiet….and she turned to her coach and said “I don’t know where you stand in this, but I’m going to finish this race on my hands and knees if I have to, because nobody believes that I can do this. I realize that if I don’t finish this race then everybody’s going to believe that women can’t do it and they don’t deserve to be here and that they are incapable. I’ve got to finish this race.” She went on to finish the Boston marathon in 4 hours 20 minutes, and this experience clearly changed her life. She made national headlines, and just five years later in 1972, women were officially eligible for entry into Boston. Katherine became a symbol and advocate for women’s sports and continues to do so presently. The message that I took from Katherine’s story far exceeds equal civil rights for women and running, while important, it was more about what she overcame by believing in herself. In life, while attempting to do something outside of our comfort zone, we will come across supporters (such as the coach and boyfriend) and doubters (such as the race director and journalists). There will almost always be people that build you up and cheer you on and there will be others who do not want you to succeed for one reason or another. And these supporters and haters are often present not just as people, but also as our own thoughts and emotions that are very powerful in making us feel we either can or cannot pursue our goals. Whether it be an athletic event or any other goal in life it ultimately comes down to the belief in yourself that is crucial to your personal achievement. Yes, support of others is powerful (and the same is true of lack of support) but the internal belief that you can work push toward your goals…even through challenge… and accomplish your dreams is the overwhelming and most powerful aspect in doing so. Besides…proving the haters wrong is often the second best part of the achievement 

Right in my Own B a c k y a r d by Brandt Carter Egg Hunts: A Time-honored Tradition Growing up in the good old days left me with fond memories of spring and Easter. I’ve never ceased to delight in the yard awakening. We always wanted grass to be greening and something to be blooming on Easter ― all the better for an egg hunt. There were no colorful plastic eggs, no battery-powered chickens, ducks or bunnies, and no Spongebob or Hello Kitty trinkets in a basket on Easter morning in my childhood. We hunted for real, hard-boiled eggs. Preparing them was quite the ritual. We would excitedly keep asking mom when we could dye eggs the week before Easter. Finally she would spread an oilcloth on the kitchen table, and the process would begin. I would set out tea cups for the hot vinegar water and dyes. Mom would hard boil the eggs. After patting them dry, we carefully eased them into dye with thin wire holders and waited until the color was just the shade we wanted. Then we let them dry on a cookie rack. These were the eggs the bunny hid on Sunday morning. I don’t know why I never figured out how the bunny opened the heavy refrigerator door, collected the eggs, and hid them in our backyard. But at a young age, I didn’t seem to question a lot of irrational happenings. I also didn’t think about which came first, the chicken or the egg. But through the years, I have gained a great appreciation for both the chicken and the egg. Now that Backyard Birds stocks Egg-A-Day chicken food, scratch, and chick starter for urban chicken farmers, I’m all the more conscious of both chickens and eggs so let me share some interesting facts: • A hen requires 24-36 hours to produce an egg • An eggshell may have 17,000 pores (all the better for absorbing dye) • Hens with white feathers and ear lobes lay eggs with white shells; hens with red or brown feathers and ear lobes lay eggs with brown shells • Egg yolks are one of the best sources of Vitamin D and a natural source of lutein, which helps prevent age-related cataracts • One egg = 1 ounce of lean meat, fish or poultry and about 75 calories per egg • Spin an egg to determine if it is raw or hard boiled — if it wobbles, it’s raw • A fresh egg will sink in water, a stale one will float • Double-yolk eggs are produced by younger hens because their egg cycle is not synchronized yet • Hens usually lay eggs during daylight • Natural egg color can be white, dark brown, green, blue, or cream colored with varying shades of the colors; the color is only on the outer shell while interior shell color is all the same • Some hens sing ‘’the egg song” just before, during or after laying her egg

The chicken egg has been a wonderful donation to spring rites. Luckily the practice of selling baby chicks and ducks, sometimes dyed, has vanished. It is amazing that from when I was young and until now when I provide a hunt for my grandchildren, the excitement that comes with egg hunts has never faded. Searching for brightly colored eggs in the spring is a delightful part of an American childhood. Brandt Carter, artist, herbalist, and naturalist, owns Backyard Birds at 2374 E. 54th Street.

The mixed-use parking structure at the corner of Westfield Boulevard and College Avenue is near completion and boy, has it been a long time comin’! Over 20 years ago the City removed the structurally unsound parking deck from along the canal and Broad Ripple lost over 100 parking spaces. Losing the deck contributed to an already growing parking deficit in the Village as the cultural district continued to grow in popularity. The mixed-use parking structure will provide nearly 350 spaces and offer some much needed relief! Stay tuned to BRVA.org for details on operating hours, monthly passes, and rates.

Residential Parking Permit Program conversation begins An element of the BRVA’s parking and public safety plan for Broad Ripple includes a residential parking permit program. This month the BRVA will create a working group of 6 to 8 volunteers, made up of residents, business owners, and industry professionals, to guide the process of creating a residential parking permit program for Broad Ripple. The working group is tasked with: creating the project timeline; researching existing residential parking permit programs in the city, Midwest and beyond; measuring how the mixed-use parking structure has impacted visitation and parking habits; and conducting a constituent survey and roundtables with the City and other stakeholders to determine the programs features and parameters. Residents, property owners, business owners, industry professionals (urban planners, etc.) that are interested in serving on the working group may email Brooke Klejnot, BRVA Executive Director, at info@brva.org. The time commitment will be approximately 2 hours per week until the program is implemented. The working group will publish their progress on the BRVA’s website, BRVA.org. Stay tuned for updates and ways to contribute your ideas, concerns, and feedback.

Transit Improvements The BRVA has long encouraged visitors and nearby residents to walk, bike and ride the bus into the Village. Our advocacy and strategic partnership building is paying off with big improvements this Spring! In partnership with Green Broad Ripple, the BRVA will be installing 4 more bike corrals. Keep an eye out for a second PUPStop to be installed on Broad Ripple Avenue in front of Brothers Bar & Grill. The first one was installed last year to high praise from IndyGo commuters; check it out in front of Ossip. Lastly, several major intersections and corridors will be updated with crosswalks and sidewalks including Cornell Avenue, College Avenue, and Westfield Boulevard.
