BRHS Marching Band - on the way to Kings Island for last performance

May zoning public meeting held at church By Alan Hague There were three items on the agenda (in bold below) for the May public meeting of the Broad Ripple Village Association’s (BRVA) Land Use and Development committee. 1. 6320 College Avenue, Doug Staley with Staley Signs regarding a variance of development standards to provide for a 57-square foot wall sign (maximum three percent of the facade permitted) for this property. Petition # 2018DV2-010 Hearing, Tuesday, June 12, 2018 This petition is for new signs for the future Urgent care facility that will go into the property at 6320 N. College Avenue that was previously First Financial Bank (and Flagstar Bank before that). The committee voted to support the new signs if the design could be made smaller and be located higher on the building. It also requested that no ground sign be installed. The committee agreed to take a final vote electronically after the final sign design was submitted. 2. 838 Broad Ripple Avenue, Joe Kahn owner of Condado Tacos to explain the changes made to the property. This item was for information only. The details of the remodel of Chumley’s / The Village Tap into Condado Tacos was conveyed to the committee. Photos of the interior work were shown. 3. 6360 to 6340 Westfield Boulevard, Gary Weaver and Randy Sherman with Weaver Sherman Design regarding an update on final building design, landscaping, lighting and signage for The Line Urban Flats. This item was for information only. Some changes were made to the apartment/retail space to be built on the Rogers Pools site at 64th and Westfield Boulevard. The building will be slightly shorter than originally proposed. The final unit count will be 128. The committee discussed lighting and landscaping details for the project. The next public meeting of the Land Use and Development committee is planned for Tuesday, June 26, at Northminster Presbyterian Church starting at 6 pm.

Final 20-year plan proposal presented at meeting The final planning meeting for the 20-year plan of Broad Ripple Park was held at Broad Ripple High School on May 23rd. The final plan was revealed. It was made clear that this is a 20-year plan for the park. There is no money set aside for implementing this plan. The intent of the plan is to give purpose for appropriating and raising future funds. The plan is just the first step. Some of the major changes in the plan include an new through road with distributed parking, a splash area and lazy river feature, a festival area with stage, improved river access, removal of recycling bins, and removal of the outdoor pool. Fred Prazeau, partner at Context Design, the lead planning team for the park plan, shared a question he was asked “What happens to something like the (outdoor) pool, a program element that is in the park today? Let me give you a very clear answer on that. Indy Parks intent is that no program element that is in the park today goes away until the money and the design is there to replace it. So the pool that is there today will be there until there is money and design to replace it.” Same with the boat ramp, recycling center, etc. Many of the design displays are available to examine at the Broad Ripple Park family center or at

America’s oldest continually running festival of Renaissance and Baroque Music announces its 52nd season

Indianapolis Early Music Festival opens on June 22. Indianapolis Early Music aims to expose its audiences to a wide swath of music that swept the world long before radio, let alone Spotify! Medieval, Renaissance and Baroque music are the festival’s major three focuses but old folk music from Jewish and Arabic cultures, obscure Latin American compositions and more all find a home at the festival.. The Frank and Katrina Basile Theater at the Eugene and Marilyn Glick Indiana History Center will again be the home of this year’s festival from June 22 through July 15 for six events on Friday evening and Sunday afternoon and two free events for families on Saturday mornings June 23 and July 13. Our first weekend opens with Grammy-nominated lutenist Ronn McFarlane’s “cross-over” band Ayreheart, presenting high-art renaissance music alongside traditional folk music of the time. Guest vocalist Sarah Pillow is a dynamic singer of early music and jazz. Philadelphia’s Tempesta di Mare returns with a program of high-baroque and early-classical music from manuscripts preserved by Mendelssohn’s great-aunt Sara Levy and her sisters, Jewish art patrons living in Berlin in the late eighteenth century. Our second weekend will feature a rarely heard duo performance by Ronn McFarlane and Paul O’Dette. Paul is also artistic director of the Boston Early Music Festival. Concluding with a concert of our oldest music. Medieval ensemble Alkemie will transport us back to thirteenth-century France and the world of courtly love. Our final weekend has arguably the most variety, but it is being completely organized by one musician, Matthias Maute. “Chaconne: Voices of Eternity” features variation and improvisation as seen in musical forms like the chaconne, passacaglia, and folia and is the repertoire for Ensemble Caprice’s eighteenth CD. The ensemble will also present “Salsa Baroque” for our second family concert. Ensemble Caprice will then join forces with the Bach Society of Minnesota and Steven Rickards’s Echoing Air Vocal Ensemble, all conducted by Matthias Maute, in an all-Bach program featuring Cantatas No. 29, Wir danken dir, Gott, and No. 11, Lobet Gott in seinen Reichen (the Ascension Oratorio). This year our Education Outreach Committee brought performances by two ensembles, Shakespeare’s Ear and Daily Bread and Butter, to Northview Middle School, Montessori School IPS #91, Children’s Bureau, The Oaks Academy—Brookside and Fall Creek Campuses, and IPS/Butler University Lab School #60. Admission is free for students, who should call IEM at 317-577-9731 and reserve seats in advance. As mentioned before we will again be offering two free family concerts this summer, featuring Ayreheart (first weekend) and Ensemble Caprice, led by pied-piper Matthias Maute (final weekend). For tickets and information visit or call 317 577-9731. Subscriptions, voucher packets, and individual tickets are available for purchase. A pre-concert chat takes place before each concert as well as a post-concert reception with the artists.

It specializes in produce and meat produced in Indiana and strives to offer locally grown and sustainably produced products such as artisan food, bakery, and ready-to-eat food items. The Aug. 30 market will include local artisans. Booth space is also offered to community partners and not-for-profit organizations including the Indianapolis Public Library, Indiana State Fair, Martin Luther King Center, and the Purdue Extension office. Other special activities at individual markets may include free music, haircuts, face painting for children, and other activities.

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 BRHS. 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 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 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

Desiree stopped by the Broad Ripple Tavern lemonade stand on her way to work at Kilroy’s in Broad Ripple on Saturday June 2nd. Joe Smith with the Broad Ripple Tavern served her and I an ice cold glass of lemonade to help support Ella Whistler, the 13-year-old shot at Noblesville West Middle School. These “Ella’s Aid” stands were all over the state to raise money to help with the massive hospital bills. This one in our Village is sponsored by the BRT and WFMS Radio “The Country Music Station” 95.5FM. All proceeds from the lemonade sales and donations go directly to Ella’s medical costs. We are all praying for a quick and full recovery for her and her family.

Uncle Dan and Sophie Jam - The Music of Cole Porter Tuesday, June 12 The Jazz Kitchen 5377 N. College Avenue - 21+, doors 5, show 6 - 8, $25

I know that I mentioned this in the last issue, but this show is worth a second mention. Writer Dan Wakefield and saxophonist Sophie Faught take the audience on a creative journey with the Uncle Dan and Sophie Jam series through music and stories. This installment will include special guest Cathy Day, an author who is currently writing a novel on the great Indiana composer, Cole Porter. Sophie and her band will perform great jazz standards with a musical nod to Cole Porter. “Uncle” Dan will do his usual masterful job of interviewing Cathy and telling stories connecting his vast experiences to many of the Hoosier greats.

Renee Dion Thursday, June 14 Indy Hostel 4903 Winthrop Ave - all-ages, 7-10 pm, free

I became charmed by Renee Dion just by poking around her social media accounts. Her incredible voice and passion sealed the deal. The Indy Hostel is only the second stop on her first-ever tour. And as I suspect about everything in Renee’s world, she doesn’t do anything small - her tour is taking her out for almost five months and over 80 stops. She is touring in support of her record HAVEN. Renee’s voice is huge and just melts your heart. The album is a story of her growth as woman and as an artist and her spirituality. I hope you’ll come and listen to Renee and give her a big Hoosier State welcome! Art from the Heartland Exhibition Opening & Community BBQ Friday, June 22 Indianapolis Art Center 820 E. 67th Street - all-ages, 6 - 9 pm, free

The Art Center will celebrate the opening of the Summer Exhibition Series with a community party - music, outdoor games, activities, and of course, BBQ. The show features work from some of the Midwest’s most innovative and prolific artists. This year’s exhibition was juried by Indianapolis Museum of Contemporary Art’s Gallery Director Mike Barclay, who selected 80 pieces out of a pool of over 650. The exhibition serves as the Art Center’s survey on the state of contemporary art in the Midwest, highlighting artists from Indiana and surrounding states. Also opening that night, an exhibit of artwork from the Indianapolis Art Center’s SMART Program. The SMART program (Supportive Mentoring through ART) is a unique partnership between the Indianapolis Art Center, Starfish Initiative and Big Brothers Big Sisters of Central Indiana. It is a year-long structured art program for youth between the ages of 12-18 from under-served areas of Indianapolis with an interest and/or talent in the visual arts. Youth and mentors together attend a series of specialized art classes in a variety of mediums at the Art Center.

-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.

Broad Ripple Park Pool Opens


by B il l M

The Broad Ripple Park pool is now open as of June 2 and will close August 5. The hours are as follows: Sat. 12-5 p.m., Sun. 12-5 p.m., Mon. Closed, Tues. - Thurs. 11A-6P, Fri. 11A-5P. They also ofter swim lessons and host a swim team.

Lively dialogue on “aquatic experience options” at BR Park Meeting

At the Master Plan community meeting at Broad Ripple Park High School on May 23, IndyParks stated that it cost them $19 per swimmer visit for the outdoor pool. In response, an Indianapolis aquatics masters’ official responded that such an allegation was due to poor programming of the pool. Saying IndyParks had thrown the pool “under the bus”, he urged the outdoor pool not be closed so that more people could learn to swim – something that is not possible in a “splash park” or “lazy river”. Other attendees noted their children learned to swim at the BR Park pool. These themes were echoed by interviews with locals in two TV news stories. WTHR Channel 13 by Mary Milz interviewed swimmer Dave and other pool users and supporters. Here is the link : future-of-broad-ripple-pool-a-concern-as-indy-parks-unveils-parks-master-plan Here is the channel 6 link which also covered the issue: https://www.theindychannel. com/news/local-news/indianapolis/broad-ripple/the-future-of-the-broad-ripple-pool I also have started a new Facebook page, “Friends of Broad Ripple Pool”, for others concerned about the fate of the outdoor pool. It’s not too late to weigh in. A pop-up display, the Project Studio, on the Broad Ripple Park master plan is now in the Broad Ripple Park Family Center where you can also leave a comment as well as view the 3 scenarios developed for the Park going forward. For more details on the BR Park Master Plan and to give feedback on this matter, go to and be sure and email them if you have a view on your vision for the Park. Their email is And thank you to IndyParks for allowing such a robust dialogue in this very interactive master planning process. Everyone has been great although they could have been less coy about their aquatic plans.

the top of Lake Michigan and the Kalamazoo River. It’s almost blueberry season and you can pick your own at Blue Star Farms (formerly Krupkas), at 2647 68th Street in nearby Fennville ( Bring plenty home. Later in the season don’t miss the famous Red Haven peaches available throughout the area. There are beaches galore. Oval Beach on Lake Michigan is great for sun bathing. Pier Cove Beach down the coast is also nice and is free. You will find it on Lakeshore Drive south of 124th Avenue. ($10). Also free is nearby County Park Beach just north of 118th Street on Lakeshore Drive. The newest beach, the Wau-Ke-Nau Nature Preserve, is just south of County Park on Lakeshore Drive south of 116th Avenue has 365 acres. Also a must is the Saugatuck Dunes State Park, 6575 138th Avenue with 2.5 miles of beach. Holland State Park at 2215 Ottawa Beach Road in Holland is also very nice with views of the Big Red lighthouse. (State Park fee) My all-time favorite is the Laketown Beach which is at the end of 142nd Avenue. It is also free and features a steep walk over the dunes to the beach. Other fun stuff: The Holland Farmers Markets on Saturdays is always good, if not just for people watching. It runs until 2 p.m. and also has food trucks. The Fenn Valley Winery in nearby Fennville is worth the short trip. They have “Music in the Vineyards” including on June 9 and 16 from 1-4pm. ( Just south of Saugatuck is the charming city of South Haven. Grab a bike rental and ride the Kal Haven trail all the way to Kalamazoo. A great beach and long pier are fun. The What Not Restaurant on the Blue Star Highway at 116th Street (2405 68th Street in Fennville) is very good and affordable. They have bands on weekends. And don’t forget to bring some blue berries and peaches home.

Clue: D equals J

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 5 in the right section of the top row that contains 2-4-6-8. The 5 in the middle section of the top row eliminates the spaces on both sides of the 4. The 5 in the right section of the middle row eliminates the spaces below the 8. The 5 in the left section of the top row eliminates the space between the 2-8. The only place left is tot he left of the 6. You have learned one technique used to solve Sudoku puzzles. There are many more.

Giddy YEP!


Wine in a can. Think of it as the travel-friendly cousin of the Stelvin screw cap bottle. Easy to carry. Easy to open. Easy to recycle and quite possibly the ultimate “chill and swill” vessel. Can wine isn’t new but like the screw cap has been slow to find space on store shelves. It’s a gamble for winemakers who take on new costs, new tariffs, new systems, and the risk of putting juice that would sell in a bottle into a container that is still strange to many wine drinkers. Perhaps the popularity of sparkling water in a can is giving cautious wine producers the confidence to see what the can can do for them. DARK HORSE wines philosophy is all about being bold and taking a chance. I have yet to find a varietal or blend that lacks in flavor or satisfaction. The price is right too. Most bottles sell for $10 or less. Same holds true for its first can wine offerings. Each contains the equivalent of a half of a bottle of wine and is priced at $6 or less. The Pinot Grigio is dry and smooth with notes of apple and white peach. The Rose is dry in style with notes of currant, cranberry and a crisp clean finish. NO aromas or flavors of “aluminum can” either so you can serve in a glass or flip and sip. Jill A.

The Broad Ripple Gazette

Vol. 15 No. 12

Right in my Own B a c k y a r d by Brandt Carter Sorry, I have to bug you Yes, it’s that time of year. It’s warming up, and you are spending more time in your own backyard and parks. After this crazy winter, it is a welcomed change. But wait, wait! The bugs and critters are out, too. We are graced with mosquitoes, fleas, ticks, ants, chiggers, bees, spiders, and hornets. These are a few of the insects we have to live with and tolerate. The one problem with these citizens is that they bite and sting. So how can you tell if you have gotten bitten by a bug, which offender did it, and what can you do to get relief? Here are a few tips: • Mosquito Bites: These nasty insects will leave a welt on your arm that itches and itches, and itches. Make a paste of Vinegar or Lemon Juice and baking soda. Apply to the bite. Also ice the area. You can also try Aloe Vera gel, a poultice of peppermint leaves, a wet tea bag, inside of a banana peel or a lemon slice applied to the bite. If you don’t leave the bite mark alone it can get infected. Sometime I just slap the welt and tell it to behave so I don’t have to scratch it! • Flea Bites: These bites are so bothersome. You can get them from your animals and even just by walking out in your grass. Don’t think if you have one you don’t have fleas. If you have bites, you have millions!!! Flea bites usually show up first around you ankles and below your knees. They are tiny welt with a scabby center. You can test your house by putting you open hand on the floor or carpet and they will jump on your hand. Home remedies to soothe or relieve itching from flea bites include ice packs, Aloe Vera, witch hazel, rubbing alcohol, vinegar, tea tree oil, and used tea bags. Over-the-counter anti-itch creams and antihistamines can also be used. Try not to scratch the area, because that can also lead to infection. • Chigger Bites: If you picked berries in the raspberry patch, you probably got chigger bites. Unless the sun was baking, the least bit of humidity would bring the invisible insects out in hoards. Their armies live in grasses and can’t wait to find a human. Luckily with chiggers, there is no risk of disease and the itch can be treated with over-the-counter medication. I have painted on clear nail polish on the bites for years to relieve itching. • No-See-Um Bites: These nasty bugs remind me a lot of chiggers. I don’t think I have ever seen one and I am most familiar with them on the sandy beaches of Florida. But alas, I do think they are on my patio. After a short time of reflection early evening on my stone patio, my legs want to run off because they itch so badly. Of course, you can’t see the culprit. They leave tiny pinkish/red dots all along your feet and legs. Some home remedies to try are the application of underarm deodorant to the bite, wiping the bite with rubbing alcohol, or applying toothpaste to the affected area. Also, mixing baking soda with water to make a paste and rubbing it onto the bite can relieve the itch or applying Aloe Vera gel. Ice and very cold water are immediate and safe ways to soothe the skin. • Tick Bites: A tick bite can be just as scary as some poisonous spider bites. Ticks love the woods and will hop a ride on humans and dogs. The best way to handle a tick bite is to remove the tick as soon as you spot it using tweezers. If you have ever had a tick bite, you will know the phenomenon that if they just bit you, they are small and then they keep swelling as they suck your blood. After you have removed the tick, wash the area with warm soap and water. If the bite is irritated, apply some antibiotic ointment. Home remedies include holding a slice of onion on the bite, apply a meat tenderizer poultice, or apply apple cider vinegar and water on a cotton swab. Ticks are the source for Lyme disease and Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever so take precautions. Consult a doctor or veterinarian if needed. • Finally the Bee, Wasp, or Yellow Jacket Bite (Sting): The bites most of us one time or another have suffered. They leave a swollen welt with a stinger mark in the center. When treating, be sure the stinger is removed. Apply baking soda paste, a dab of pure honey, apple cider vinegar, or even toothpaste has been said to be effective. If there is a catastrophic reaction to the sting like swelling and/ or trouble breathing, use an epipen or go to the hospital. It is important that you find out your allergy level to bee stings. They can be deadly.* I hope this lesson in bug bites does not deter you from enjoying the great outdoors. It should give you pause for when you go out the door that you apply a trusty bug repellent. Applying a repellent to you and your loved ones can only enhance your outdoor experience. I keep a several cans of insect repellent by my back door as a reminder to armor up. Don’t let these little bugs curb your enjoyment of Mother Nature. *Be sure to consult a physician if you have any complications of a bite Brandt Carter, artist, herbalist, and naturalist, owns Backyard Birds at 2374 E. 54th Street.
