Meridian Street Foundation By Mario Morone Meridian Street Foundation President Tom Shortridge is an Indiana native who returned home in the mid-2000s. He recently discussed his background and the non-profit group he leads. “While I was born and raised in Indianapolis, I moved back here eight years ago from Plainfield, New Jersey where I lived for 24 years.” While there, he was president of the Hillside Avenue Historic District, one of six historic districts in Plainfield, where back in the day, there were a variety of beautiful old homes built. Coming full circle back here in Indianapolis, Shortridge says, “I was a board member of the Meridian Street Foundation for several years after returning to Indianapolis. In 2016, they asked me to become Treasurer. When the President’s spot was vacated, I was asked to take over, but they needed an individual (Ed Free who was eventually named) to succeed me The grand staircase at the old Governor’s Mansion. as Treasurer before I assumed my current duties as President.” “We are not really a neighborhood association, rather we are geared more toward preservation of the historical nature of the area. There are a big mix of residential lots where one can see a variety of beautiful architecture. Also included in the MSF district is Tarkington Tower. On Saturday, March 4, we had a membership event at the old Governor’s Mansion at 4343 N. Meridian Street. Its purpose was to give people a chance to get to know each other and keep a voice in the community. Many years ago, the mansion had some repair and maintenance issues that needed addressing, now the current owners, Dr. John and Elaine Klein, have made improvements and restorations to keep its historical presence,” he said. In addition to historical land use issues, Shortridge mentioned some of the Foundation’s other work: “One of the things the MSF does annually with help from donations from its members is decorate the lamp posts lining Meridian Street from 40th Street north to Westfield Boulevard with greenery and bows

during the holidays. They also have a Christmas tree lighting at Alice Carter Place Park in December.” Area resident Allison Madden said, “My family and I live on Meridian Street - we bought our southern colonial home three years ago. My British heritage lends an appreciation for great architecture, mature gardens and our link to the past. I was invited to join the Board of Directors of MSF last December and was excited to be part of the team that has been influential in preserving the Meridian Street historic corridor.” A past neighborhood event that was revived in recent years is MSF’s Annual Easter Egg Hunt. This year, the 16th hunt, was Saturday, April 15 on the grounds on the old Governor’s Mansion, again at 4343 N. Meridian. While this event is reserved exclusively for MSF members, there are opportunities to attend other MSF calendar events to learn more at: MSF Board Meetings are held the second Tuesday of each month at 7 p.m. at Meridian Street United Methodist Church, located at 5500 N. Meridian Street in the lower level in the library. Neighbors and interested individuals are welcome to attend. Shortridge’s full time job involves selling and licensing public record property data from country office assessor records for Black Knight Financial Services. There are 3,141 counties and over 150 million properties ranging from commercial, residential and retail to office and vacant land, and all are part of the database that Black Knight sells out to the market. Driving or walking down Indianapolis’ most historical corridor provides a unique opportunity to view preserved architecture made possible, in part, by the Meridian Street Foundation.

13th Annual IBCF Walk for Dreams and 500 Festival Princess, Justine Weatherman

The Indiana Blind Children’s Foundation (IBCF) was founded in 1993 with the mission to invest in children with visual impairments, so each child can thrive in school and in daily life. IBCF is a philanthropic foundation, which has supported the Indiana School for the Blind and Visually Impaired for the past 24 years, impacting hundreds of children with blindness and visual impairments. IBCF is one of 20 Indianapolis organizations participating in the 13th Annual Walking for Dreams Event on Sunday, May 21st, 2017 on the canal in downtown Indianapolis. We are pleased to announce Justine Weatherman, a 2017 500 Festival Princess who is also visually impaired, as the Master of Ceremonies, cutting the ribbon to start this 5K Family and Pet Walk on behalf of IBCF. Ms. Weatherman will represent IBCF as a community volunteer leading approximately 1800 walkers along the canal path. Revenue raised from the walk will support a new partnership between IBCF and Playworks Indiana, enabling a full-day training for 35 ISBVI staff on the Power of Play. “By being a 500 festival princess, I had the opportunity to complete outreach efforts in the community, and because of my diagnosis of Stargardt Disease at age 12, I wanted to give back to the students at ISBVI. I actually considered going to the school, but I desired to stay in my home district…it just made sense to me.” —Justine Weatherman IBCF is devoted to driving financial support for unique educational programs and tools that increase individual academic growth for each child impacted by ISBVI. IBCF supports programs for students that challenge the idea of what is appropriate for visually impaired children. We spread awareness of the programming provided, engaging our community in what many supporters have said challenge their perceptions of what a child with visual impairments can do. Ms. Weatherman exemplifies the ideal candidate to assist IBCF in fulfilling this goal.

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 #3. 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 is Assistant Band Director at BRMHS. As a board member of the BRHS Alumni Association, he is an organizer of the BRHS reunions for the classes of the 1940’s through the 1950’s held the first Sunday each June at Riviera Club. 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 BRMHS 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 seven Cultural Districts recognized by the City of Indianapolis. We try to let you know what is going on in the other 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

She was a student when she worked at the coffeehouse and had her first piece published - I think it was in Seventeen Magazine. I was so dang proud that I was making people read it as they waited for their coffee! She has gone on earn an MFA in creative writing from Butler and to be published many times over and in too many places to list here.

Most of our current readers have not seen CW’s columns from the early days of the Broad Ripple Gazette when we only had 2500 readers (we now have 7000!). Here is a column from Volume 2 #15 first published on July 22, 2005.

C I S Poetic Thoughts S A L C

by C.W. Pruitt II

6520 Cornell Ave 317.253.2611

In November of 2000 I was in a funk. I was living in an apartment which was not much larger than a closet. And I had not seen another person in more than a week. Then I began to think, “What do I really need?” And I realized that I could benefit from a prayer. The poem below came to me like a thunderbolt from the Heavens. Once again I learned of the redemptive nature of poetry. I received even greater joy in knowing that someone someday might reap a small measure of comfort from the poem. Here is that poem/prayer:

Random Ripplings Dyngus Day was celebrated at Average Joe’s Sports Pub, 814 Broad Ripple Avenue [G4 on map]. Son of a Booshie did a kitchen takeover for the evening, serving Polish sausages and pierogies. Proceeds benefited School 84 CFI.

A Prayer 4 Me? I don’t really want 2 B a player Or a hard core demon-strative rhyme sayer

BRVA president Mark Wolf welcoming all to the meeting.

BRVA Spring Public Meeting By Alan Hague The Broad Ripple Village Association (BRVA) Spring public meeting was held in the auditorium of the Indianapolis Art Center on April 18, with around 85 in attendance. BRVA president Mark Wolf opened the meeting at 6:30pm. Mark and other BRVA Board members outlined many accomplishments of the past year, including working with City departments to improve Broad Ripple infrastructure. Past president Kent Springer gave an example, “When Louie’s Wine Dive was in the midst of remodeling, there was a torrential rain. Broad Ripple Avenue flooded and the whole restaurant got flooded. We met with the Department of Public Works (DPW) downtown and convinced then to do something about Broad Ripple Avenue.” The DPW schedule for sewer work in the area was five years out. The BRVA was able to change that and get an immediate inspection. “DPW spent a week cleaning the sewers along College and Broad Ripple Avenue, and since that’s been done there hasn’t been any flooding on Broad Ripple Avenue,” explained Kent. Next, Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department (IMPD) Chief Bryan Roach spoke on the focus of the department to reduce violence and to improve the department’s relationship to the community. IMPD North District Commander Joshua Barker detailed the latest crime stats for North District (roughly bounded by Michigan Road, 30th Street, Fall Creek, all south of the 96th Street). Most of the crimes stats dropped and all are lower than the district’s average since 2007. (All meeting slides available at www. Mark Wolf wrapped up the meeting announcing upcoming events such as the May 12th Spring Art Walk, June 17th Taste of Broad Ripple, and the June 25th Duck Race. During the meeting, prizes with drawn from Average Joe’s Sports Pub and Grub, Half Baked Pottery and Gifts, and DJ Deckademics. After the meeting, attendees enjoyed food and drink provided by Broad Ripple Brewpub and Average Joe’s. The next meeting will be the board election on October 17th.

Where in the "Village"?

Hidden History encryption by Jim Alred

answer on Page 14

Have you seen this yellow car? We thought it was a lemon, but it is actually an oil drop. Where is this?

Answer on page 14

Hidden History is a simple letter-substitution cipher. If K equals B in one word, K will equal B throughout the puzzle. Solve by looking for frequentlyused letters and common patterns.

Clue: M equals A

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 1 in the middle section of the top row which contains 7-8-9. The 1 in the left section of the top row eliminates the three spaces in the top row. The 1 in the right section of the top row eliminates the space between the 8-9. The 1 in the center section eliminates the space above and below the 9. The only place left is to the right of the 7. You have learned one technique used to solve Sudoku puzzles. There are many more.

Historic Ad

This ad for Stationers appeared in 1991. The stationery, pens, and everything office-related store was at 808 Broad Ripple Avenue, this would have been about where Landsharks is today [H4 on map]. This was one of my favorite stores when I was a kid in the Village. I would walk the two blocks from my house up to Stewart’s (what I called it, I think it was Stewart’s Stationers) and browse endlessly.

I hopped a jet and flew to California over Easter weekend. I’ve never seen it so green so early. The record breaking rains and floods earlier this year have produced early and vibrant bloom that you could see from the window of the plane as distinctly as from the ground. With sunshine and temp’s in the 70’s, it made for perfect rose wine weather. I happily rediscovered one of my favorite dry crisp pink wines from the south of France, the Gerard Bertrand. I visited the winery in the Languedoc in the spring of 2011. (I am sure I wrote about my adventures for the BRG Wine Scene, so if you search the data base for my columns from May and June 2011, they are probably there.) Bertrand is a former Rugby player and I remember having lunch with him in the gorgeous courtyard of the winery. It was a sprawling, resortlike facility with high-end amenities, sculpture and a gourmet restaurant. We tasted thru 14 wines that day including the rose. At the time, the GB wines were very limited in the US. Now you can find them virtually everywhere. Another bottle bonus, the bottom is shaped like a rose, which makes it a great gift for your Derby party. The Bertrand rose is a blend of several red wine grapes and offers enticing aromas of current and wild strawberry with a crisp dry mineral like finish. Jill A. Ditmire is an Omnimedia wine specialist, AWS certified wine judge, freelance broadcast journalist and 20+ year home owner in the Warfleigh neighborhood of Broad Ripple.

The Broad Ripple Gazette

Vol. 14 No. 9

Right in my Own B a c k y a r d by Brandt Carter In Praise of Working Cats We have been lucky to have two wonderful cats in our business. If you have been to Backyard Birds, you have met Miss Birdie. I hope some of you do remember Miss B. Ripple. Our first store cat, Miss. B., was quite a looker. We adopted her from Animal Control to be a working cat in our birdseed/birdfeeder store. The tiny white and gold kitten began her long career mousing, meeting customers and sleeping on the counter in a ray of afternoon sun. Over the years her favorite perch was on a five pound bag of peanuts in the shell. She was also known for her whimsical haircuts every summer. Her body would be shaved but she retained her fluffy head, mane and legs. I always thought this diva looked like a go-go dancer because of her groom. She was quite the conversation piece when folks saw her in the window at night. Whether she acknowledged them or just slept, window shoppers hesitated a bit longer just to watch her. She was a great ambassador of good will. But as the store turned a calendar year, so did she. Ripple (for she answered to Miss B., Ripple, or Miss B. Ripple) became ill, diagnosed with cancer, and passed several years ago. Dilemma: the store was too quiet without the cat. The customers asked about her every day. Treats went unused…no cat. Webster, the store dog, even missed her and would look for her when he arrived. The cat dish sat empty and her pillow on the counter was put away. But this lasted only a month. I went on a search for an able replacement although I knew she could not be replaced. I found a perfect, young cat that would look just right on our counter. The young, long-haired calico cat was a bit undone on the day I adopted her. A heavy door had accidentally slammed on her tail and she was growly and aloof. The woman at the rescue group assured me this cat didn’t act like this usually and she would be just perfect. Well she was right. Miss Birdie is now our second store cat. She guards the shop at night. It is like Miss B passed on the job with the training completed before Miss Birdie came. She sleeps on the counter on her pillow. Because of her new job, she eats a bit too much. She is on a diet, so no treats! It is amazing how a cat can add to the ambiance of a store. There are several stores that have cats in the Broad Ripple area. For you who love cats and want a cat fix, I hope you visit these stores often. Also, if you want a cat, adopt a rescue. They are wonderful, and they can give you hours of enjoyment, entertainment, and companionship. Come visit Miss Birdie when you can. She reminds me of these sayings I have collected: “Even overweight, cats instinctively know the cardinal rule: when fat, arrange yourself in slim poses.” - John Weitz “Cats are intended to teach us that not everything in nature has a purpose.” - Garrison Keillor “Thousands of years ago, cats were worshiped as gods. Cats have never forgotten this.” - Anonymous “Dogs have owners, cats have staff.” - Unknown “Women and cats will do as they please, and men and dogs should relax and get used to the idea.” - Robert A. Heinlein Brandt Carter, artist, herbalist, and naturalist, owns Backyard Birds at 2374 E. 54th Street. Visit her web site Email your bird questions to
