There is a completely new view of Broad Ripple now...

... from the roof of the newly opened parking garage!

Brooke Klejnot - BRVA Executive Director

In This

By Mario Morone


Brooke Klejnot’s discovery of Broad Ripple as a college student and later as a resident has led to a rebirth in the area and in her career as Broad Ripple Village Association’s Executive Director. “My first introduction to Broad Ripple was as a visitor; I used to visit Broad Ripple as a college student about once a month. And, I loved it! So much so, I moved to Broad Ripple in 2005 while I was still completing my undergraduate degree. So, for over 7 years now, I’ve been a resident in the area. I love the restaurants here and the Monon Trail. Whenever I have family or friends visit, I really enjoy showing them all the things that make Broad Ripple such a unique community,” Ms. Klejnot explained. A Fort Wayne native, she earned a bachelor’s degree in marketing from Ball State photo by Mario Morone University. Her nonBrooke Klejnot profit work early in her career eventually led to her current position. “My supervisor at the Indianapolis Art Center told me about the position and

recommended I apply for it. She was a Broad Ripple resident and was super excited about the prospect of me leveraging my skill sets at the BRVA. At the time, I had a few other employment opportunities that I was considering, so I really had to evaluate what I wanted and what was important to me and ultimately, where I could do the most good. I have a passion for the area - living and working here and I have a passion for community development and planning. The BRVA was positioned to make a huge impact in the community in those areas and I decided that we were a match made in heaven! So, I applied and after a few months of interviewing, had the great pleasure of accepting the position,” she mentioned. Ms. Klejnot discussed the goals of the BRVA. “The BRVA is focusing on programs and initiatives that enrich the community, attract investment, amplify public spaces, and improve quality of life. One of our goals is to preserve the character of the Village; which touches on both business mix and the natural environment. Broad Ripple has the highest concentration of independentlyowned businesses in the city and we are working to keep it that way. It’s part of what makes Broad Ripple, Broad Ripple. We are also improving the natural and built environment. Right now our Land Use and Development committee uses the principles and guidelines in the Broad Ripple Plan (adopted by the City last fall) to improve the Village property-by-property and parcel-by-parcel. Other projects we are working on include pedestrian scale lighting, a residential parking

permit program, and block club program. Availability of funds has been challenging for communities, both locally and nationally, as they determine what and where to invest for the future. “When municipalities are crunched on their budgets, it forces community organizations, like the BRVA, to think creativity about how to do it on their own. BRVA has always been proactive and continues to create its own destiny. We will find a way to do what needs to be done for Broad Ripple. One thing I think is unique to this organization is that BRVA is managed almost completely by volunteers, with the exception of myself. Board members serve three years and also commit to serving on committees devoted to various activities. There are 10 standing committees (Land Use and Development, Beautification, Public Safety, Business Division, Membership, Governance, Farmers Market, Historic Home Tour, Gallery Tour, Lights Up) that work mostly year-round,” she said. Future events, news, public safety and economic development initiatives can be found at, in addition to a current fund drive to raise $175,000 to commemorate Broad Ripple’s 175th anniversary. According to their website, money raised will go towards community improvement projects including green space, public art, bike corrals, and pedestrian scale lighting. You can also visit their Facebook page at and follow them on Twitter at Questions can be answered at (317) 251-2782 or by e-mailing Brooke Klejnot’s plans for BRVA are as bright as a sunny springtime day as she and her fellow board members create their vision for its future.

Buzzing Around Town with Nora Spitznogle

Farmer Jason Saturday, April 27 Athenaeum Auditorium 401 E. Michigan Street all-ages, two shows 10AM & noon, $6 advance, $8 day of show

I’ve always adored Jason Ringenberg. First for his melding of punk and traditional country music with his band, Jason and the Scorchers, then as a solo artist, and now as a Emmy winning children’s performer. You read that right. The guy who was a pioneer of the Americana punk-roots scene is now singing to the kiddos. Don’t feel sorry for Jason or think that it is a step back; he is in hog heaven as it were, doing what he loves. And he still plays big kid shows too. Speaking of hogs, Jason grew up on a pig farm in Illinois and learned the daily rigors of raising livestock at a young age. He created his Farmer Jason persona a decade ago to educate and entertain children about farm life and the wonders of nature, using his farming experience and love of the outdoors for the basis of his photo by Gregg Roth show. Farmer Jason has performed several thousand concerts in venues ranging from rural fairs on the Alaskan tundra to fancy European performance halls. The highly acclaimed live show involves sing-a-longs, dancing, and discussions about nature, ecology, and farm animals. The high-energy Farmer Jason concerts are aimed at

Old Truck Revival Friday, May 3 Sabbatical 921 Broad Ripple Avenue 21+, free, 10:00 PM

For a band with only two guys they sure do make a big sound. Old Truck Revival is made up of John Bowyer and Junk Box Mike. They play a delightful mix of bluegrass, folk, rock, and punk – something they call “Newgrass.” You can’t help but have a good time listening to those two. If you haven’t been to Sabbatical yet you’re in for a treat. The drinks are delicious and the food is terrific. They feature “small plates,” with the idea of being able to sample several things and share – unless it’s the brie-stuffed turkey meatballs, I’m not sharing those with anyone.

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

answer on Page 22

Broad Ripple Parks full of spring activities By Bill Malcolm It's spring and there are alot of things to do in Broad Ripple's three parks: Broad Ripple Park, Holliday Park, and Marrott Park. My favorite thing is to enjoy the wildflower display which is in full display at all three (in the woods). The assortment of spring "ephemeral" includes Dutchman's breeches, squirrel corn, Virginia blue bells, trout lillies, skunk cabbage, anemones, wild geranium, water leaf, an assortment of trilliums, and the showy celandine poppy. The latter has beautiful yellow flowers. But don't procrastinate. Most of these flowers have to flower before the leaves come out on the trees. Here is a round up of fun at our 3 parks and related activities: April 26: Family campfire and hike (plus story telling with Cynthia Goodyear) Holliday Park (fee, registration required), 6:30 p.m. April 28: Naturalist on the loose, 1:30 p.m. at Holliday Park May 4-5: Orchard in Bloom garden show at Holliday Park: Always a great way to pick up garden ideas May 10: Labor and learn workshop with horticulturist Chris Turner, Holliday Park, 9am May 11: Canoe the White River with Holliday Park staff.

A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of interviewing Will Shortz. He's the editor of the New York Times crossword puzzle and the contributing "puzzlemaster" to NPR's Weekend Edition Sunday. He's also a favorite of BRG editor Alan Hague. I offered to let our "master in chief" interview the "puzzler in chief" but seems he had some "business" to attend to on a beach. So I had the lone phone interview with Shortz who was only in Indianapolis for a day and night to give a free speech at Butler University. Shortz grew up in Crawfordsville. His sister still lives there and he says he comes back to visit every so often. He graduated from IU in 1974 with a degree that he created for himself as part of the University's Individualized Major Program. Enigmatology—the study of puzzles. He created his own syllabus and tests and wrote his thesis on puzzles before the 19th century. Shortz says he has a good friend who also graduated from IU in the program. His friend's degree was in magic. And this day, his friend with his IU degree is on the professional magic circuit with plans to open a magic theater in California. As you can see, my 20-minute conversation with Shortz was filled with all kinds of interesting subjects. Just like his puzzles. Shortz spent a number of years after graduation editing for puzzle magazines. Then in 1993 he got the job at the New York Times and has been there since. He told me each day he reads thru about 75 puzzles that are sent to him from prospective puzzle creators as he puts together the weekly lineup for the newspaper. The easiest puzzle is on Monday and the most difficult or intriguing on Sunday. I asked him why so many people love puzzles and he said he thinks solving a puzzle brings a sense of order to our hectic lives. "You literally work from square one to the end where there is a sense of enormous satisfaction," he told me. He also thinks doing crossword puzzles that are on paper with a pencil is the ultimate experience. Though he said thousands of people subscribe to the NYTimes online puzzle at a cost of nearly 50 bucks a year. Speaking of play, Shortz is a ping pong junkie. Or as he says "Ping Pong is the game but Table Tennis is the sport". He plays it daily as a way to relax and unwind. His passion for the sport is so intense that he started a table tennis club where he lives in Pleasantville, New York. Shortz has no plans to retire any time soon either. He says not only does he love his job but he loves meeting the people who play puzzles. He says they are friendly, funny and smart. Shortz will be back in Indianapolis this fall as part of the "Spirit and Place Festival" where the theme is "risk". You can hear part of my interview with Shortz at on my page, Jditmire. I forgot to ask him about wine. But one that won't puzzle your palate or your pocketbook is Cocobon Red from Calfornia. It's a blend of cabernet sauvignon, merlot and malbec that has bright notes of cherry and plum and hints of rich mocha. EZ drinking and $11.

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

Douglas David Named Featured Artist, Orchard In Bloom

The Orchard School, Indy Parks and The National Bank of Indianapolis proudly announce the featured artist for the 2013 Orchard In Bloom garden show is Indianapolis artist Douglas David. His handmade furniture and home furnishings will be on display throughout the garden show, May 3-5, at Holliday Park. “As both a fine artist and a furniture designer, versatile Douglas David has been a crowd pleaser at Orchard In Bloom for years,” says Elliott Pruitt, an event organizer. David studied art at the Heron School of Art/Indiana University, worked in the business world as a graphic designer/creative director, then turned full-time artist, first by painting and now also as the owner and lead designer for Douglas David Cottage. His inspiration comes from finding unique, vintage items, then putting those classic pieces back into work with a new purpose. “The repurposing is always inspiring. What makes these home furnishings and accessories so special is they find a new use in today’s home and office. Bringing these old items back with a new twist brings an excitement to the piece,” says David. “My focus for this year's furnishings and accessories line is ‘vintage graphic and color,’” says David. “It is amazing when you really start looking at the typography and color combinations on some of these items. So current and fresh, yet many times the original found item is 50, 60 or even 70 years old!” David’s home furnishings are handmade by Indiana craftsmen. His “upcycling” style is a perfect fit with Orchard In Bloom, as the event has been growing a greener community for more than two decades. Orchard In Bloom attracts 7,000-9,000 guests with exhibits and activities focused on environmentally friendly gardening and living. The 24th annual Orchard In Bloom garden features garden and landscape ideas and products; national exhibitors with a broad range of art and merchandise; the third annual Garden and Natural Living Symposium speaker series, live music; a café; and children’s activities. Recognized by The American Horticultural Society as one of the top garden shows in the country, Orchard In Bloom models a unique partnership between The Orchard School and Indy Parks. Proceeds from this community garden and arts show support innovative programs at Orchard, and outdoor education and park improvements at Holliday Park, a public park serving families of Central Indiana.

Poetic Thoughts

by C.W. Pruitt II

In the June 1-14, 2007 issue of the Broad Ripple Gazette I wrote a column entitled, 'Impermanence.' In it I described the hilarious vibe emitted by Tibetan Buddhist monks over morning tea. I wrote the following 2 poems on January 19, 2013 while reflecting upon that experience at Camp Chesterfield.

 those buddhist monks were so funny but i don't think they know they are funny they just are

 those tibetans tap danced on my funny bone and freed me up inside­— laughing, giggling, and i didn't even understand their jokes

garage and designated surface lots. In 1937, Gertrude Schnull-Rauch and her husband John G. Rauch Sr. purchased the home from her father’s estate. In 1979, the home was listed on the National Register of Historic Places and donated to the Junior League of Indianapolis for use as its headquarters and offices for non-profit organizations. In 2008, the Junior League sold the house and the property to The Children’s Museum of Indianapolis. This year’s show house marks the 52nd time the guild has hosted the event, which will feature over 50 area designers and landscapers using their talent and creativity to transform the historic Schnull-Rauch House.

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 7 in the right section of the bottom row which contains 2-3-9. The 7 in the right section of the top row eliminates the spaces above and below the 3. The 7 in the right section of the middle row eliminates the spaces above the 2. The 7 in the middle section of the bottom row eliminates the spaces to the right of the 2. The only place left is directly to the right of the 3. You have learned one technique needed to solve Sudoku puzzles. There are many more.

MARKET John Hill, owner of Broad Ripple Brewpub at 65th and Cornell Avenue, called the Gazette recently to say that he found an original Broad Ripple Farmers Market poster from 1996 (see image left). Broad Ripple Brewpub and Marigold got together to start the market. It may have been the first neighborhood farmers market in the city. It was held in the parking lot of the brewpub and there were about seven vendors, including Ross Farris, fondly remembered by many present-day market attendees. John joked that while the fee back then to be a vendor was about $5, there was one guy that wouldn't pay, he would simply park his truck on the street in front of the market and sell from there! The artwork for the poster, designed by Scott Johnson now of Axiomport, won a national art design award in 1997. The 2013 opening day will be Saturday, May 4. The market is open from 8am to noon each Saturday at Broad Ripple High School in the rear parking lot.

We seem to have three great interests that please us…..sports, restaurants and pets. Let me touch on all three. First, I’d like to say how very glad I am that Laura Minor and her sister, Jenny Willis, are back safe and sound from the Boston Marathon. Laura is my fellow columnist here at the Gazette and owner of So.Be. Fit. Fitness Center. Jenny is a trainer there whom I have had the pleasure of working with. Like all of us, I am saddened that the sport that they work hard at and the goal that they had attained was marred by such terror to Boston and our country. Congratulations to you both for your achievement! On another note, I spent Spring Break at Hilton Head Island in South Carolina. One of the iconic businesses there is the Salty Dog Café. If you haven’t been there you have probably seen someone here sporting one of their tee shirts. They have done a phenomenal job of branding themselves with three restaurants and four retail stores. It is THE place to go. While shopping there for my annual tee shirt I picked up their publication of things to do on the island listing all of their summer events. It is a slick booklet that also features many of their licensed logo products and menus for their restaurants. In the back was an article entitled “NO DOGS? Why dogs are not allowed at the Salty Dog Café”. Whoa. This is a super dog friendly world and everyone wants to know what restaurants they can take their dog to. I’m in the pet business and I love dogs but after reading this let me play the devil’s advocate. It starts out saying that when they opened in 1987 lots of people came with their dogs and life was good but allowing dogs of all varieties in close proximity, kids with food and dog owners with drinks—it got messy. Dogs were urinating on tables and chairs and occasionally pooping on the deck. Owners were allowing them to lie in walkways and to eat off their forks and plates. Some dogs barked almost continually while others begged for food and stole hot dogs from little kids. The article continued and I quote “It would be no exaggeration to say that many of the dog owners failed to control their pets. So, ultimately the good dog owners suffered from the actions of the bad dog owners and we posted the No Dogs Allowed signs. Why? Because we feel that we have a responsibility to provide our customers with a clean, peaceful and safe place to dine. We do not feel that it is our responsibility to police the dog situation - or to clean up after dogs or to referee dog fights. I’m uncertain if you have ever witnessed the utter chaos that occurs when two dogs suddenly decide to kill each other in a crowded environment such as the Salty Dog Café, but it can get really ugly. So being fully aware of the consequences, we no longer wish to subject ourselves to the disruption to the business or the presumed liability. Many State Health Departments prohibit dogs, but others, such as South Carolina, allow the restaurant owner to decide. So, why are dogs not allowed in the overwhelming majority of restaurants? Presumably for the same reasons that we do not allow dogs at The Salty Dog Café. Our policy also extends to our outside tables because, in essence, our outside seating is part of our dining room. Our reasoning comes in part from the old adage there are no bad dogs just bad dog owners. And generically speaking everyone loves dogs but not everyone loves your dog. And while we sincerely apologize to the good dog owners, it’s the bad dog owners who have backed us into this corner. We do allow leashed dogs to visit and walk across our property, however some dog owners still neglect to use a leash. If we ask these owners to please leash their dogs then we are the bad guys. An employee was nipped by an unruly dog last year.” The last lines hit home with me. At City Dogs Grocery we have a steady flow of visiting dogs. They make our day and we welcome them. But, we have at the ready, a leash to use. We require it. Your dog may be a jewel but the other guy’s might not and it is so true about the risk of the presumed liability. All dogs should be leashed in public places. It’s the law. I do not understand why dog owners disobey. It’s for their safety. The Salty Dog has done extensive research in creating its pet policy. For more information: The results of this debate so far show 65% no and 35% yes. Another poll shows 68% no, 29% yes and 2% undecided. That can be found at: It appears just as a majority of diners do not wish to dine near someone who is smoking they do not wish to dine with dogs sitting beside them. Who knew? What are your thoughts? I always say “pets make you smile”. April needed a smile. Welcome May!

Broad Ripple Village Association Public Meeting By Martin Chittum On Tuesday, April 16, the Broad Ripple Village Association (BRVA) held its semiannual public meeting at the Indianapolis Art Center. The main topics of discussion were Kickoff to a Safe Summer in Broad Ripple, a discussion of the Tax Incremental Financing (TIF) project the neighborhood is involved in, and a recap of BRVA events of the past six months since the last meeting. The meeting started promptly at 7pm and showed a high turnout of people from the neighborhood. Throughout the meeting, various prizes were raffled off. The prizes were provided courtesy of Union Jack Pub, Marigold, RiviFit, Flatwater Restaurant, Greek's Pizzeria, Brother's Bar & Grill, and Average Joe's Sports Bar. Beer and popcorn were provided after the meeting by Thr3e Wise Men Brewing Company. The meeting was presided over by BRVA President Jay Wetzel. He began by thanking the sponsors of the door prizes and giving a brief overview of what was to be covered in the meeting. He then introduced Mark Wolf, who made a brief presentation about the upcoming membership drive and the importance of BRVA membership and fundraising. Jay thanked the members of the BRVA board for all their collective work and then introduced Tom Healy, BRVA board member and president of the Broad Ripple Alliance for Progress, who gave an overview of the past 6 months. Firstly, he spoke about the final adoption of the Envision Broad Ripple development plan for the neighborhood and how that will set the course of future development in the neighborhood to be in line with the community's vision for the look and feel of Broad Ripple. Features such as tree-lined streets and ample sidewalks were highlighted. And the big news was that one of the needs first identified 25 years

ago, a mixed-use parking structure, had its first paying patrons as of that day. He was very glad to say that the sidewalks around it were very wide to accommodate the pedestrian traffic, citing it as an example of the sort of details that the BRVA had worked so hard to lobby for. For the BRVA 175th anniversary, the Broad Ripple Alliance for Progress put together a tax deductible fundraising mechanism for raising funds for various BRVA projects, with the goal of raising $175K. The Art to Art project is a way of connecting Broad Ripple to the Indianapolis Museum of Art via a corridor of public art projects that follows the canal. The newly-christened mixed-use parking structure will feature one such piece of art. They are currently in the process of selecting an artist to create the piece. At this point, they have winnowed 100 submissions from international artists down to a half dozen from which they will make their choice. Through the work of the Committee for Historic Broad Ripple, Fire Station 32 has been officially recognized on the National Register of Historic Places. Thanks to the contributions of many village supporters, there will be a bronze plaque installed on a large rock in front of the Fire Station. There will be an event later this year to celebrate it. A challenge grant was issued by the Indianapolis Foundation, which is part of the Central Indiana Community Foundation. It is a $17,500 challenge grant that says that for every contribution of $1,000 or more, the Indianapolis Foundation will match it 1-for-1, up to the cap of $17,500. It will be used for improvements on the Cornell Corridor during “phase 1” of Art to Art, which is an area from the canal to the Indianapolis Art Center. They will look at upgrading some of the features as well as repairing some of the art pieces, such as the large stone sculpture of faces located along the Monon in front of the Broad Ripple Brewpub, which is leaning and needs to be straightened up with a new base for the sake of safety and aesthetics. They would also like to do some landscaping in the form of a community garden in honor of the late Bill Green. He was known as an advocate for natural landscaping long before it was common. Finally, he mentioned that starting May 21, they will be planting new trees

all along College Avenue from 54th street up to Broad Ripple Avenue. Keep Indianapolis Beautiful has worked with a private donor to secure the trees and labor to make it happen. They will also be doing many things this Fall to beautify the area around Cornell when it is being re-paved and new sidewalks are being put in place. Next, BRVA Public Safety Chair, Elizabeth Marshall, and Captain Mungovan of the IMPD North District gave a presentation about the Kickoff to Safe Summer. First, she spoke about the Block Captain Program, a community-building initiative to encourage people to get to know the neighbors on their immediate block. The goal of the program is that in every block in Broad Ripple there will be one person who is willing to “take point” and be responsible for his or her block, and get the people involved with their immediate community by organizing block parties and other social events so that neighbors will know each other better and be aware of what is happening on their block. The idea is that this can have a direct positive effect on public safety. The BRVA is providing organizational and administrative support for this. You can email for more information. As part of their Spring and Summer plan, IMPD will be assigning a special unit to Broad Ripple Village to help during peak hours. This is in addition the usual beat officers that are normally assigned to duty in the Village, and in addition to the off-duty officers that many businesses hire to help with safety. They have been specifically tasked with watching for escalating concerns and can respond quickly to take care of any situations that may occur during the high-traffic times.

The IMPD bike patrol is returning to the village this year. This is something that the BRVA Public Safety Committee lobbied strongly to get. It is an all-volunteer group, and the BRVA extends their appreciation to the extra help that they provide. Cpt. Mungovan then took questions from the audience. He began by giving a synopsis of the statistics so far this year compared to last year. Violent crime is down 10% and property crimes have dropped 42%, with total crime dropping 36% for the year to date in the Broad Ripple area. He feels that this improvement is very much due to the efforts of the community to work to reduce crime in the neighborhood. In answering a question, he mentioned the Summer Initiative that the IMPD will be implementing. They will be taking the three ZIP codes in every district that have the highest amount of crime and will be sending extra resources to those areas. They will try to identify key people and locations that seem to be the biggest sources of problems in those areas and make sure that officers are concentrated on those areas during the times when most crime takes place. He also spoke about the police sub-station that will be set up in the new parking

garage. While there will be officers coming in and out of it at all times, it won't be staffed 24/7. There will be six officers permanently assigned to it. If you need to contact Cpt. Mungovan about any problems occurring in the evening, he can be reached at 317-327-6101. If it is anything during the day, the number is 327-6100, which is the number for the main desk where you can reach the Captain on duty. His email address is, Elizabeth then made mention of the Community Night Out which will be happening this summer in conjunction with the national Night Out event. There will also be a Midtown Education Committee meeting on May 15, at the Children's Museum, to talk about education options in Midtown. Lastly, she emphasized the importance of calling 911 when you have any emergency to get the quickest response to the situation. City-County Councilor-at-Large John Barth then gave a presentation about the Midtown Tax Incremental Financing (TIF) program that Broad Ripple is a part of along with several other Midtown neighborhoods. It is a six-year enterprise that many people have been working on to make happen with all the neighborhood associations working together to identify and reduce significant problems within their combined neighborhood. The TIF is based on property taxes in the area where it is designated. From the date specified, the amount of money taken from property taxes for the usual spending will stay the same, and any increase in tax revenue beyond the initial assessed level during the designated time period of 25 years will go straight toward economic development projects within the area. With the Midtown TIF, these neighborhoods have made the decision to work together towards shared goals of economic development. They feel that by working together with this TIF, there will be much greater chance of success in achieving their goals for economic development in their neighborhoods. What makes the Midtown TIF unique is that they have created the Midtown Economic Council (MEC) to give representation to dictate to would-be developers the places and projects that really need their attention the most. This flips the entire dynamic around from how a TIF is usually done, from being developer-driven, to being neighborhood-driven. District Councilor Will Gooden then spoke about it and emphasized how important it is that all the neighborhoods work together to improve the quality of the communities. He pointed to the new parking garage as an excellent example of how the neighborhood's assessed value as just gone up significantly from its original value, and how that adds to the revenue possible for the TIF. The same thing would apply to any new project that increases property values within the TIF district. He is very encouraged by the enthusiasm he's seen from the people involved in this project. John Barth closed the discussion by saying that this is all about encouraging more people to live in Indianapolis, to care more about their homes, and to bring more tax revenue in to the city so that they can have the funds available to do the things that need to be done. They are well aware that they are competing against neighboring communities, such as Carmel, and are dedicated to doing what they can to make Indianapolis an attractive place to live. Jay then opened the floor to anything people would like to mention regarding the community. There were questions about parking rates at the garage and the possibility of permit parking in the neighborhood. Oscar Banks, pastor of the Life Work Christian Church, introduced himself and invited anyone who may be interested to attend their services held at the Indianapolis Art Center on Sundays at 10:30am. Someone asked about any initiatives concerned with abandoned houses in the area and it was mentioned that RequestIndy ( has an iPhone/iPad app that allows people to easily report problems with abandoned or distressed properties. People from the various groups involved with the Indy Connect transit plan were introduced as being available afterward to take any questions regarding it. To close, it was announced that the Broad Ripple Farmers Market will open on May 4 and that the Spring Gallery Tour will be on May 10.

Health Before During and After Cancer

I eat only whole grain breads and pastas. I drink multiple cups of liquids throughout the day. I get eight hours of sleep every night. I get stomach cancer. I shop at Good Earth. I have a fulfilling social life. I eat very little refined sugars. I eat no meat. I consume no dairy. I eat multiple servings of diverse fruits and vegetables every day. I get stomach cancer. I run no less than 10 miles every day as a high performing distance runner. I barely ever buy packaged foods. I barely eat processed foods at all. I get Pseudomyxoma Peritonei. I buy organic at every possible opportunity. I eat leafy greens on a consistent basis. I'm 36 years old. I win marathons. I get stomach cancer. When I was suddenly hit with the pain in my abdomen that didn't subside after two days of rest, I was sure I had an umbilical hernia from the repeated stresses I place on my body from high mileage running and a physically laborious job. The CT scan, however, came back with a much different diagnosis. The surgeon informed me that I have Pseudomyxoma Peritonei, a rare, but treatable, form of stomach cancer that was going to require an extensive operation and a long recovery. It was so out of left field that I almost had no reaction to it at all, as if I was just told that my headache would require ibuprofen. Ok, let's get on with it then. I wasn't angry. I wouldn't even say I was shocked. Maybe not even confused. I simply accepted it and prepared for the next step in the procedure, almost instantly thinking about the recovery and getting back to running. In hindsight, I don't think I had the reactions most would expect after being told they have a life-threatening disease because I couldn't imagine I had done anything wrong, ill-advised, or otherwise foolish to bring this upon myself. It is a RARE cancer, which means the causes are entirely unknown, if there are even "causes" at all. Maybe this is just a process of physical imperfection. It's certainly not from smoking, too much red meat, pesticide ingestion or any other "known causes" of cancer. I live what we understand is a healthy lifestyle. Of course, the reaction by friends and family were, understandably, quite shocked. I heard the same affirmation again and again, "But how? You are the healthiest person I know!" Maybe, maybe not, but I at least pay attention to my habits, because I understand the immediate value of health. Healthy living behaviors, for me, have never been primarily about AVOIDING life-threatening disease and degeneration. Yes, those are absolutely considerations in my habits, but more importantly, I live a healthy lifestyle because it affords me a greater quality of life in the very immediate sense. I gain a benefit from riding my bike everywhere and running countless miles daily by engaging in the acts themselves, feeling the pounding of my heart, interacting with the environment, sending spikes of adrenaline through my bloodstream, activating the neurons in my brain and so on. It just so happens that the physical activity also has health benefits that extend far past the act itself as well, but my concern is with my immediate quality of life. The same principle applies for all my other healthy habits, whether those are the foods I eat, or the emotionally satisfying activities I choose to partake of. But that doesn't make me bulletproof. I still got stomach cancer. And yet, the healthy life I've built to this point not only served me in the short term, but has afforded me both a positive mental perspective to deal with the cancer emotionally and a physical strength to aid me in recovery once the doctor's remove the cancer from my body. Case after case has shown that healthy individuals recover quicker from surgery, their bodies primed to overcome the stresses involved, coupled with a positive mentality to push through the emotional struggles all the same. It would be tragic to give up on a healthy lifestyle just because I got stomach cancer, to view the circumstance as if all my behaviors had failed, as if they weren't worth it and I should have been drinking, smoking, eating bacon and watching reality TV all day. Something grew the cancer in my stomach, though doubtfully anything of my own doing, yet every active day, every wonderful meal, every rewarding friendship held it's own specific value and reward in the moment. In that, all our healthy decisions have an undeniable value. At the time of this writing I have yet to go into surgery and start the process of recovery, but when I do, I know the healthy lifestyle decisions I've made to this point will benefit me at every step. Cancer or not, my health has always been worth the effort. Laura Minor owner and operator of So.Be.Fit. Personal Training and Fitness studio located at 54th and the Monon.

Right in my Own B a c k y a r d by Brandt Carter Spring Has Sprung This year I celebrated the arrival of spring looking out the window, one eye half open and the other watching the clock turn 7:02 the morning of March 20. While the passage of the spring equinox may have been quiet, my mind was racing in anticipation of spring adventure. I began thinking about introducing my grandkids to some activities that were my childhood favorites. I hope we will get to try our hands at kites. I fondly remember old-fashioned paper kites that came rolled tightly around balsam wood sticks, which we used to brace the kite’s structure. We didn’t have the sophisticated materials and designs of today’s kites, but we had plenty of traditional diamond-shaped paper and box kites. We tore old rags and tied the pieces together to fashion tails that were the rudders for our airborne fliers. We embraced the spring winds with excitement. The more wind the day had was all the better for getting our kites high in the sky. We were competitive ― who could get his or her kite airborne first, highest, or longest? Open spaces around Butler and Broad Ripple Park were great places for kite flying. There we didn’t have to worry about getting our kites caught in trees, fences, or wires. As we go out together to fly kites this spring, I will share information that I’ve learned through the years about kite flying. Did you know that kites were invented by 5th-century BC Chinese philosophers? I find it interesting that kites were flown for measuring distances as well as testing winds and signaling during military operations. Surprisingly, kites have figured differently in many countries through the centuries ― sometimes used in religious ceremonies to send prayers to the gods, sometimes used as instruments for scientific research. One of my favorite pieces of kite lore involved Ben Franklin and his experiment with kite flying in a storm to prove that lightning is electricity. My kite flying has always been for fun. I find kite design to be a fascinating art form, especially the motifs that emulate mythical beasts, birds, and insects that fly. Some of the dramatic designs with their bold colors could make kites objects of art that I would be happy having displayed in my home. What amazes me is how kites continually sport beautiful graphics, especially the more spendy ones. The modern kites with two or four lines that achieve balletic flight are enchanting. As you may know, kite flying is popular the world over. In Asian countries it can take the form of kite fighting in which competitors, flying kites without tails, aim to snag another’s kite and cut its line. This was portrayed so vividly in the recent best-seller The Kite Runner. I’m also mindful of the kite as a motif with the Peanuts character Charlie Brown whose kite getting caught in a tree was a telling metaphor for entanglement with life’s adversities. Maybe this will be the spring we get to one of the Hoosier Kitefliers Society events ( Being among those with a fascination for kites and knowledge to enhance the joy of flying them would definitely be a highlight of this season worth sharing. It is always a challenge to brush up on your kite flying skills each spring. Combine fun while learning and celebrate spring!
