Utterly Pink - fashion on Westfield

Top: Vess Ruhtenberg of United States Three. Right: Heidi Gluck performed solo on the Otter Stage. Her show with The Pieces was rained out.

By Alison Graham


On September 15, 2012, Erika Reimer and her mother, Jackie Elliott opened their very own boutique, Utterly Pink. “We just did it. We started doing research and just jumped into it,” said Reimer. The unique name of the boutique stems from the two owners’ favorite color. “We’re both obsessed with pink and wanted to play off that,” Reimer said. The women’s boutique features all different kinds of clothing and accessories, ranging from blouses to dresses to jewelry. “We’re both into fashion and order a lot out of L.A because that is the Mecca of the fashion world,” she said. “We get our fashions from the source.” The mother-daughter pair is even planning to attend a market this summer to bring in even more apparel for Utterly Pink. “It’s a chance for us Utterly Pink to go and see the fall and winter 839 Westfield Boulevard clothes firsthand. Touch them, try them on, and really see what (317) 257-7465 we love and want to order in for Utterly Pink,” Reimer said. The pair tries to see what items are trending and try to pick what they personally like for their inventory. Not only does Utterly Pink carry clothing from L.A., but also features a local Indianapolis jewelry designer, Concetto delle Rose. “She makes amazing pieces that are very unique and affordable,” said Reimer. All of the Cocentto delle Rose handmade jewelry items are priced under $26. Utterly Pink prides itself on their affordability, keeping their entire inventory under $50. “Our affordability makes us stand out,” said Reimer. “We try to get what customers want to see in our store and what they would want to buy.” Utterly Pink is located at 839 E. Westfield Boulevard. “We love Broad Ripple and all the culture it has to offer. We have a saying that you just never know what you will see in Broad Ripple. That’s the fun of it,” said Reimer.

Right: Treasures were found at the 50+ vendors. I found several vintage MAD Magazines I needed for my collection. Below: No Direction played on the Otter Stage.

Buzzing Around Town with Nora Spitznogle

I had a wonderful time at the inaugural WARMfest over Labor Day weekend. I enjoyed every minute that I was there and I felt like I was on vacation in my own neighborhood. I’m glad that I took the Wapahani River Sessions Paddleboat ride. I realized that I don’t spend nearly enough time around our beautiful White River. The music was all great and I especially loved seeing locals bands included in the lineup. Musical highlights were hearing Cari Ray’s new songs, seeing United States Three play again, Pravada, discovering that I am a Big Head Todd and The Monsters fan (right), and all of the kiddos on stage with Michael Franti for the closing concert (below).

I also spent way more time in the Indie Arts and Vintage Marketplace are than I expected. Everything was displayed beautifully and it was fun to meet the vendors – I made so many purchases one day that it made for a long bike ride home. I applaud the folks that had the vision to make WARMfest happen and I look forward to next year.

The Wine Scene as seen by The Broad of Ripple (Jill A. Ditmire)

Indiana's Nicest Day...and some wines and beer to match. I had the pleasure of co-hosting "The Art of the Matter" on WFYI 90.1 FM from the Penrod Arts Fair. The four hour show was broadcast live from the grounds of the IMA. Billed as "Indiana's Nicest Day" – it truly was for me. And the 30 thousand others there. Penrod runs free shuttles from various parking lots on the Butler campus. I parked my car at Clowes and walked across campus. It was breezy, warm and inviting. I stopped by Atherton Center to pay my respects to the late great Butler Blue 2. I had to say goodbye to the last of my 2 doggy boyz this year (Guinness went to doggy heaven in 2006 and Harp joined him this past January) – so I know the pain and sadness that Michael Kaltenmark and his family and the entire Butler community are feeling. I walked past the Kappa Kappa Gamma house where I spent four fun years during my college stay at Butler. Walking "the row" reminded how much times have changed on campus both during the day and the night. Back in the mid 80's, if you were 21, you were allowed to walk from fraternity party to party with an open cup of beer or punch in hand. I remember turning 21 and starting to try wines like Riunite Lambrusco and Mateus and Canei at some of those parties. I haven't had any of those in years but I can recommend the Lo Duca Lambrusco which tastes like fresh cherries with bubbles. It is gulpably good. Mateus is a Portugese wine and I am a big fan of another label made by the same producer, the Gazella Vinho Verde. Canei is an EZ drinker from Italy. I recently tasted and loved the Castelvero Cortese. Much drier than Canei but just as enjoyable. We had an eclectic line up of guests for our live broadcast. Plus WFYI's Matthew Socey hosting the outstanding local blues performers on the blues stage. NoExit Performance, the ISO, the IMA, The Phoenix Theater, Indy Fringe Theater, KP Singh, were just a few of the many local supporters of the arts who shared their thoughts with us live on the air. And I got to interview Sean O'Connor of Flat12 Bierwerks and taste its "official" beer of the festival, "Penrod 22". The Kolsch style lager was named after the 22 men who founded the Penrod Society some 47 years ago. It's an invitationonly membership for men between the ages of 20 and 40. And the 150 members VOLUNTEER to run the yearly Penrod Festival. Flat12 selects certain festivals to make specialty beers. Sean said brewers meet with festival organizers to find out what the theme, vibe and style of the event will be and then they create a recipe that reflects. Kolsch is a specific style from Cologne, Germany and like Champagne, can only truly be called Kolsch if it comes from that region. The water there is pure and distinctive and thus makes Kolsch a unique beer. But the "style" is also festive, refreshing and has great character. I sampled Penrod 22 and found it delightful. It had a tropical fruity nose of pear and banana. The mouthfeel was smooth with a bit of zip and subtle tang on the finish. I tasted notes of tropical fruit and almond. The perfect beer for Indiana's Nicest Day. Jill A. Ditmire is an Omnimedia Wine Specialist who shares wit and wisdom nationwide in print, TV and radio, and is also an AWS-certified wine judge.

The Broad Ripple Gazette

Howling at the Moon by Susan Smith Two iconic and amazing individuals have passed away in the last few weeks. Both had a profound impact on my life. I have written many times of my connection and affection of Blue II, the Butler Bulldog mascot. I will miss my pal who came in to get his dog food from us every month. He was just a campus pet when we first met. He became the perfect ambassador. Sue Owens, proprietor of The Dog Food Shop, at 56th and Illinois Street for years, died August 22nd. She was 89 and worked her shop until she was 82. I got to know Sue very well when I was her customer and I worked next door at The Oxford Shop. Then I got the bright idea to buy her store. We went down that path together for 2 ½ years. For so many reasons (not the least, she lost her lease) it didn’t work out. But in the course of pursuing the business and working for her while she vacationed, she told me the history. The shop was established in 1935 and was an original tenant of the Morris building, as is Kincaid’s meat market. The original owners sold it to Jean and Bob Clements. In 1966 Sue took ownership. I actually shopped there with the second owners when I was a teen with pets. Dry dog food, as we know it, did not exist before WWII. The shop was set up with stoves and freezers and horsemeat was cooked and sold in containers. Up to the end, left in the shop, there was an antique refrigerator and gas pipes for the stove. Time evolved and so did Sue’s knowledge. She was the go to person for dietary answers for pets. She carried only the best foods and brands. The shop was really tiny and had a tinkling bell on the door. It was a complete throw-back to the past. Gone are the days when a shop owner can put up a sign that says “Gone Fishing”. But that is pretty much what Sue did, except it was “Gone Birding”. Many of her past customers have told me of their frustration of going to the shop only to find it closed while she was in search of sighting a bird she had been alerted to. According to her family she led many bird walks and bird counts throughout the state of Indiana. We are told that her fellow birders would appreciate her life list of 767 birds with the last being the Hooded Crane. She was a wildlife enthusiast and was committed to the preservation of the earth and our environment. She was a world traveler. She loved to talk politics and she listened to talk radio and read the paper between customers. She was a wealth of knowledge on so many levels. And she was stubborn. This is probably the biggest reason our business deal didn’t close. I so wanted to be the fourth owner of this little piece of history in Butler Tarkington; to keep it alive. I loved the old neon sign that hung out front that hadn’t worked for years. I would have restored it. I loved the simple name….The Dog Food Shop. I loved the location (off the canal, close to my home). Her kids were in favor. Her attorney was in favor. Her landlord was not. I handed her a big check as a show of interest. Two weeks later she stood me up at the attorney’s office and I got the check back. This was after I was called and asked to work the store while she went to Puerto Rico with her family. She told me the shop would be mine when she returned. I realized it was like taking the keys from an elderly driver. It was too difficult for her. Glen Owens, her husband of more than 50 years, had passed in the years we were negotiating and it was too much for her to give up. I was patient (which is why it went 2 ½ years) but finally said to her that I wasn’t getting any younger either and that if I was going to pursue my own such business I had to move on. I opened City Dogs Grocery at 49th and College November 4, 2006 and she closed November 30th after 71 years of business; the oldest pet supply store in the city. It broke my heart. She called to ask me if there was any inventory I wanted before she closed but I did not. I only wanted a clock given to her from a manufacturer but it never came forth. It had hung over her door and would have been a nice memory. Many of my customers complain about our store hours. We are closed Sundays and Mondays. We close at 6:00 PM Tuesday through Friday and 3:00 PM on Saturdays. I have followed her store model and will until I sell or close. It’s not ideal in this fast paced world. It denies us potential growth and income. But life’s too short. I’m not getting any younger. Besides…..I might just want to go birding. Thank you, Sue Owens, for your wonderful knowledge, friendship to our community and dedication to our beloved city pets for so many years. I have a vision of you opening the Pearly Gates to let in Blue. Take care of him. You both are missed.

The background of The Gazette:

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

Free Admission! Free Parking! September 28, 2013 (Last Saturday in September) from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. in Hohlt Park at 840 W. 53rd Street. FESTIVAL HIGHLIGHTS - Festival Stage Sponsored by The Broad Ripple Brewpub & The Great Frame Up. Band Line-up:

11am–12:15 Wednesday Nite Club plays an eclectic range of acoustic based folk, blues, celtic, rock & country music for the pure fun of it. 12:30 – 1:15 Sidewalk Souls follows with a kind of throwback version of classic 70’s rock, underscored with a nod to true soul music. 1:30 – 2:15 CW and the Working Class Trio. From the classic R&B groove of Ray Charles to the super smooth soul of Bill Withers and the hard-driving rock of CCR. 2:30 – 3:30 Sparks is a tribute to the band “The Who” featuring prominent local musicians from bands: Phyllis, Born Again Floozies, Johnny Socko, and others. Sparks will fly! Rock will roll. 3:45 – 4:45 Whoa!Tiger came together in March 2008 with the simple mission statement: “We write our own music!” They call it Kitchen Sink Rock & Roll 5:00 – 6:00 Radio Patrol promises To Protect (your right to party) and Serve (up your favorite top 40 hits)

Additional Entertainment: Judy Hannah and the Midwest BellyDancing Superstars will be dancing throughout the festival crowd in the afternoon. Phil van Hest, a stand-up comedian and wildly popular International Fringe Festival entertainer formerly known as “Phil the Void” returns as MC. Artist Area: Over 70 artists, featuring an eclectic mix of original art and unique artisan items for sale. Each year brings new talent as well as many favorite repeat vendors. Activities: The children’s activity area, directed by Kate Bullis, is fast becoming one of the largest family draws of any Indianapolis festival. This year her “Children at Play” area will feature a non-competitive sand sculpture event in the volley ball court (new sand pile!!!), hooping, bubble bonanza, an art station, face painting, and hair spraying. Friends of the White River are back this year, presenting ways to enjoy the waterways here in the city and offering photo opps with a “fish”. In the early afternoon, at the west end of the park, there will be an open, free drum circle. Bring your own drum or use one provided by the facilitator, Helger Oompkes. The Festival Store: (Located at the Rocky Ripple Community Association) • Fun, new items this year: colorful cozies, tie-dye bandanas with the Rocky Ripple Festival logo and tie-dye shirts with the Festival logo (special orders). • 16oz stadium cups (for beer refills) with Rocky Ripple Festival logo • Limited number of bat houses … back by popular demand. • Raffle tickets … $2 each or three for $5. Local merchants and sports organizations have been wonderfully generous in helping the RRCA raise funds by donating gift certificates ranging in value from $5.00 to $200.00. Bike Area: The Festival organizers encourage people to ride their bicycles to the event site in Hohlt Park. Pedal & Park will provide secure bicycle parking for free. FreeWheelin’ Bikes will have a bicycle mechanic on site to provide light bike tune-ups for tips. Food and Beverage: Craft beer will be provided by John Hill and his Broad Ripple Brewpub. Wine will also be available to purchase. The Community Association and Veterans Association provide a variety of grilled offerings, festival snacks and fresh corn on the cob for reasonable prices. Recycle: Recycle promotion at the Festival is just one of the many ways the organizers are creating

an eco-friendly event in the City. Last year, Rocky Ripple resident Jim Poyser and his group of volunteers, reduced all of the festival’s refuse into only ten garbage bags. Everything else was either composted in the community garden or recycled. This year, Meridian-Kessler resident Mary Stumpp is collaborating with Rocky Ripple’s “green” efforts by overseeing the plastic cup and aluminum can recycle collection. Mary’s mission is "to collect LOTS of aluminum cans, and a few other recyclable materials, sell them for scrap and use the money to fund grants for teachers in public schools". She has established a 501c3 organization called The Can Lady Project. Volunteers: As of this press release, in addition to the many residents of Rocky Ripple who help organize, stage and run the festival, the Naptown Roller Girls have offered to be powerhouse volunteers for the day. Sponsors: A very special thank you goes to the following sponsors: The Broad Ripple Brew Pub, The Great Frame Up, Lindner Design, The Paw Patch Place, Pedal & Park. More Information and

CLUE: M equals V

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 6 in the center section which contains 2-4-7. The 6 in the left section of the middle row eliminates the spaces to the right of the 4. The 6 in the right section of the middle row eliminates the spaces to the left of the 7. The 6 in the middle section of the top row eliminates the spaces above the 7. The only place left is the square to the left of the 2. You have learned one technique needed to solve Sudoku puzzles. There are many more.

Historic Ad This ad for Richard Bennett Furniture appeared in 1960. This appears to be before they used the slogan "Mother, put the coffee pot on". Richard Bennett was at 830 Broad Ripple Avenue, where India Garden is today [H4 on map]. This is the last of 6 ads for businesses in what was the Bill Kuhn building on the north side of Broad Ripple Avenue.

New taxi service in the Ripple I tried taking a cab the other night from Union Station downtown to Broad Ripple: one driver wouldn’t take a credit card (but offered to drive me to an ATM at midnight), another driver said I had to take the cab behind him, still another said his meter wasn’t working but he could estimate the charges, while yet another told me he couldn’t print me a receipt but would email me something! Also, the city has shut down some local taxi companies for numerous code violations (including apparently not allowing passengers to open the door). Readers may be glad to hear we have a new option, Uber Taxi. See It's a premium taxi service that you can use with an iPhone app. Bill Malcolm is a long time Village resident who writes about energy,transit, and travel. He can be reached at

Butler University Live Bulldog Mascot Blue II Dies

Blue II, the male English bulldog who served as Butler University’s live mascot from 2004-2013, died on Saturday, Aug. 31, due to complications from congestive heart failure. He was 9 years old. An American Kennel Club-registered dog, Blue became known as “America’s Dog” in 2010 and 2011 when the Butler men’s basketball team played for the NCAA national championship. Blue appeared on the floor of every Butler men’s basketball home game, select away games, and the 2010 and 2011 Final Four games. Blue retired from live mascot duties on May 20. He officially handed over duties to 1-year-old Butler Blue III, also known as Trip, during a "Changing of the Collar" ceremony in Hinkle Fieldhouse on March 9. In retirement, Blue made fewer public appearances, but he continued to come to his campus office on a regular basis and post on his various social media profiles. Blue was bred by Frank and Jeane King of Kong King Kennel in Lizton, Ind., and was presented to Butler as a puppy. He was cared for by Kaltenmark, a 2002 Butler graduate and director of Web Marketing at the University. Kaltenmark also served as the bulldog’s voice on Facebook, where he was liked by more than 8,900 people, and Twitter, where he had more than 13,500 followers. In 2011, Klout, a company that measures influence in social media, named Blue’s Twitter feeds among the nation’s Top 10 most influential accounts representing a college or university. The dog also had his own website, a vehicle provided by Don Hinds Ford, veterinarian care compliments of Butler grad Dr. Kurt Phillips ‘92, a ceremonial silver and leather collar designed by Reis-Nichols, and a host of other sponsors such as the dog food brand Holistic Select. Blue is survived by his “dad” and “mom,” Michael and Tiffany Kaltenmark, his human brother Everett Kaltenmark, and his doggie brother Butler Blue III (Trip).

Gettin’ Ripped in Ripple by Laura Minor

Use your Support “Hoes”! You walk into your office on a Monday morning and there is a note from your boss telling you to come into her office. A nervous feeling comes over you and… yep, sure enough your worst dreams came true and you just got laid off. You feel embarrassed, rejected, scared and frankly, mad, as you felt that you were a good employee. So, you Mr./Ms. Reader, how would you handle this situation? Would you: A: Crawl into a hole with a gallon of ice cream and isolate yourself from the world? B: Consider walking back into the office and knock out your boss and all of the annoying co-workers? C: Request the time and support of your closest friends and family to let you vent and gain their opinions on the matter? Hmm…. I’m sure you may know the correct answer here; I hope (and it has nothing to do with Rocky Road). Each and every human on the planet, given they have lived long enough, has experienced some sort of emotional and/or physical hardship. Whether it be job loss, death of a loved one, divorce, illness, and on and on. This type of life experience is virtually unavoidable by and large. However, it is the reaction of one’s self that will make all the difference in how he/she moves forward and copes. And a major factor in doing so is to have a strong and positive support network. A social support network is made up of friends, family and peers. A social support network is different from a support group, which is typically a structured meeting run by a mental health professional. Although both can play an important role in times of stress, a social support network is something you often develop when you're not under stress. It provides the comfort of knowing that your friends are there for you if you need them. Most often, meetings with your support system are informal. Coffee with a friend, a walk on the Monon with a sibling, lunch out with a close co-worker, or cuddling with your pet are all good examples. In difficult situations, the challenge for most is that they find it hard to make the first move to ask for the support. I assure you that way more often than not it is best to reach out as they will likely need you in the future for themselves. The benefits of reaching out and receiving support are numerous, but the main components include: • Belongingness • Self-Worth • Security Although family and friends are the usual support system it isn’t a bad idea to widen your reach. For example: • Become a regular at your favorite workout class. I have seen people become good friends simply by the familiarity and sharing interests (and making fun of me while I teach the class)  • Volunteer for a cause that is important to you and you will likely meet likeminded people. • Go online and reconnect with long distance buddies on Facebook. • Join a group such as running, knitting, book club, etc. It is important to remember that to maintain a healthy support system that YOU need to do your part in the relationship as well: • Keep in touch when you are not down and out: I had a friend that would call me ONLY when she and her boyfriend were fighting. When they were “getting along” I wouldn’t hear a peep. • Listen: Try not to yammer on and on about the bad situation, and hear their perspective. My husband is great at explaining how I can see something in a different light and usually he is right. • Don’t go way overboard: While reaching out is important, don’t bombard your network with constant phone calls, texts, etc. Respect and value their time as well. • Say thank you: acknowledge their time and how important they are to you. And be there for them in time of need as well. • Lastly watch out for negative supporters: Or as I call them “energy suckers”. Avoid people that are negative and critical as it will only create more stress instead of reducing it. In summary, we all need others and others will need us to live a healthy lifestyle. It is actually a strength, not a weakness to reach out for shoulder to lean on. Laura Minor owner and operator of So.Be.Fit. Personal Training and Fitness studio located at 54th and the Monon. She is passionate about teaching others how to “FIT” exercise and physical activity into their daily lives, and have fun while doing so! Visit her website at or e-mail her at

#2 Romance Back-to-school days have come again, and we’re all reconnecting with routines. This late-summer/early-fall time triggers nostalgia. Kids walking to school or getting on school buses bring memories of my doing the same. Do you remember when you colored inside the lines (or out), drew on colored paper, and paid attention to the colored columns in notebooks? Crayons— packaged in 8s, 16s, 24s, 48s, or grand 64s— along with chalk were my first tools. I used white or colored chalk to outline hop scotch boards on our sidewalk. Tempera paints, another favorite, were the medium for finger painting works of art. All these notwithstanding, it was the #2 pencil that really got me going. Can you believe we were taught how to take care of a pencil? Pencil skills included the correct scribing position, adequate pressure on the point, when and how to sharpen, care of sharpeners, eraser skills, maintenance, and emergency backup of a second #2. Because there was no such thing as a computer or printer then, we were taught chalk, chalkboard, and eraser-pounding care along with watercolor box and brush cleaning and maintenance. I do remember specifically that our kindergarten teacher spent time on these skills because the plethora of school supplies was limited and post-WWII families didn’t have resources to buy a multitude of items. Kindergarten gave rise to my romance with the #2 pencil. To this day I love this writing tool. The feel of a new hexagon wooden skin with the graphite lead core sharpened to a fine point still delights me. The sensation followed me through the elementary grades… from my first printing when I spent hours making Os and loops on paper with wide-spaced blue lines to my first cursive attempts of the alphabet of Aa, Bb, Cc, etc. I spent many test hours twiddling my pencils while wishing to get answers. As I progressed, I learned there were wonderful colored pencils that inspired my creative side. The colors available were even more magnificent than a rainbow. I also discovered charcoal pencils in art class and later the grease pencil when I took a graphics course. Finding there was more to pencils than simply the #2 opened my explorations with the H, F, B pencils, and ultimately the 9H, the latter being the hardest and yielding light gray marks while the 9B, the softest, made dark marks. Do you remember the day you graduated to ink pens? That was a major moment for me, a startling transition and an exciting taste of growing up. How well I recall hours of trying to create a stain free writing assignment…no erasure allowed! While my experience of pencils and pens progressed, I never outgrew my fascination with the original type of pencil that probably originated in the 16th century. Discovery of graphite in the 1500s most likely made the pencil invention possible. In the 21st century, many variations on the theme are now available: traditional graphite pencils, solid graphite woodless pencils, charcoal, carbon, colored, grease, watercolor, carpenter, copying or indelible, erasable colors, nonreproducible, stenos, mechanical, plastic, and short golf pencils to name a few. If you want to be sure you have a true #2 look for the pencil to have a hexagon wood case that’s 9/32” in diameter. It should be 7.5 inches long. Colors of the wood casing may vary, but the yellow is the classic. Alas I treasure the #2 more than any other marking tool. It can be great hair accessory, a weapon with which to hold one’s ground with siblings, the makings for a game of pick-up sticks if one of many, a small baton with which to twiddle away time, a meditation staff when one needs to think, and a chewing stick when words or answers do not come easily. Thankfully, this time-honored instrument has not been replaced by the computer, but I do know at work, the sharpeners are getting harder and harder to find. Long live the #2.

The BRVA is exploring the feasibility and desirability of a Residential Parking Permit Program. Parking Permit Programs consist of residents of certain blocks paying an annual fee for a parking pass for each vehicle the resident owns and wants to park on the street. Any vehicles parked within the parking permit area without a pass would be ticketed. To assist us in understanding your desire for such a program and in identifying what the need is in your area, we ask that you participate in a survey. Volunteers are needed to distribute surveys and collect responses from neighborhood residents. Visit to take the survey or to volunteer.

Q&A with BRVA Business Member Ersal Ozdemir, Chairman & CEO of Keystone Group Ersal Ozdemir is the Chairman & CEO of Keystone Group. Keystone is a commercial construction, real estate development, and an investment firm. Ersal graduated from Purdue University with a bachelor’s degree in Civil Engineering. He is also a graduate of the Stanley K. Lacy Executive Leadership Class XXVIII. Some of his hobbies are traveling, spending time with family and friends, playing soccer and table tennis. Mr. Ozdemir enjoys the arts and attends, as well as supports the local art community.

BROAD RIPPLE Lights Up! Committee Looking for Volunteers

The BRVA is looking for energetic volunteers to assist with coordinating the BROAD RIPPLE Lights Up! event scheduled for Saturday, Dec. 14. The event features children’s activities at the fire house and an evening light parade. It is a wonderful community-focused, family-friendly event for the holidays. If you are interested in joining the committee, email or call (317) 251-2782.

Tickets are on sale now for the 2013 Thank You for Another Great Ripple Historic Home Tour! Since its inception in 2005, the tour has showcased 82 Effect Run/Walk historically and architecturally unique Broad Ripple homes. This year, the tour will feature seven more! The Home Tour Committee welcomes you to tour the homes, meet the owners, and take home decorating and renovation ideas. Tickets are on sale now and available online and at select Marsh locations. BRVA Members get a discount and volunteers get a FREE ticket to the Home Tour. Learn more at .

The BRVA would like to thank all the participants, volunteers, and sponsors who made the Ripple Effect Run/ Walk possible. Weather was much improved for this year’s race and we saw lots of competitive runners and families participate in the race. Our sincere gratitude to Tuxedo Brothers who manages the event and to Brothers, State Farm – Elizabeth Marshall, Whole Foods, and Blue Mile for sponsoring the event.

The Broad Ripple parking structure is complete, how do you feel? I feel very pleased and relieved. It has been a true labor of love from the very beginning. Since we were first chosen by the City to develop this project, we have encountered several design, zoning and permit obstacles. Unfortunately, these unforeseen obstacles required us to change our construction schedule and plans on several occasions which significantly delayed our grand opening. Nevertheless, the patience and perseverance of our team managed to get us through all the difficulties we have faced during the last 8 months. What impact on the community do you hope the company or project will have? I believe the project’s impact on the community will be very positive in several ways, one obviously being the parking congestion in the area. For many years, visitors to Broad Ripple have been faced with the difficulty of finding a parking spot close to their destination and often resorted to parking in the surrounding neighborhoods, thus eliminating parking availability to residents and their guests. Now with 350 additional parking spaces enclosed in this safe, secure and well lit facility both residents and visitors will benefit from the comfort and ease of parking their vehicles in that area. What do you value most about Broad Ripple Village? Broad Ripple is not only a great place to have fun, but also an expression in living. The residents take pride in their surrounding and really participate in its development and preservation. Besides the extraordinary residential appeal, there is no other place that quite compares with Broad Ripple’s upbeat artistic energy and unique assortment of shops, restaurants and nightlife. I believe many Hoosiers and out-of-state guests have departed Broad Ripple with special memories and moments that will last a life time.
