Inaugural Global Fest to benefit CFI School 70 By Mario Morone The inaugural Global Fest is Saturday, September 15th from noon to 10 p.m. on the grounds of Northwood Church, 46th and Central Avenue. The church is opening its space to the community for this event. “Global Fest is really about bringing together the community to celebrate different cultures. It’s open to all— free admission is really important to us because we want everyone to feel welcome,” said Anne Luther-Sander, co-chair of the event. Global Fest features live global music, performances, artisans, and kids’ activities, along with international food trucks and adult beverages. All proceeds will benefit the Center For Inquiry 70, an Indianapolis Public School magnet. The event connects the local community and its citizens. “My family and I have always loved the fall festival season in Indy. With my daughter starting kindergarten at CFI 70 this past year, I really saw the need for fundraising – over 45 percent of our students qualify for free or reduced lunches. As an International Baccalaureate school, we are really focused on creating global citizens. What better way to explore other cultures than with food and fun for the entire community, not just our school?” Ms. Luther-Sander noted. “Our principal, Chris Collier, immediately supported the idea and midtowner Laura Greene stepped up to help chair the event with me. It’s been really exciting how the whole community is coming together to make this event happen. This is our first year, but we have an incredible line up already, representing dozens of different countries. In years to come, we hope to authentically represent even more cultures,” she emphasized. “It’s been so inspiring to see so many Indianapolis families and businesses rally around this event, supporting public education.” “We are more than just citizens of our neighborhoods, Indianapolis, Indiana and the U.S. We are citizens of the world. Global Fest celebrates just that,” said Chris Collier, principal of the CFI 70. The presenting sponsors are Monon Construction Group and Luther Consulting. “During the day, we will have everything from Chinese Shadow Puppets and the Iibada Dance Company to Hernly Family Karate and City Yoga,” said Ms. LutherSander. Brave Youth Society, led by Denise Warnsby, will be debuting a new piece One World, One Dream specially created for the fest. At 5 p.m., the bands will take the stage starting with Grupo Bembe, which performs a fusion of Latino music– Salsa, Plena, Merengue…followed by Pork & Beans Brass Band representing the USA with New-Orleans-style funk.

Indy favorite, will close the night with music that blends the sounds of Ghana, Nigeria, Congo, the Caribbean, Columbia, Mexico, Brazil and Western pop. Global Fest is a family-friendly event. “We really want families to learn about games and crafts from around the world. We’re going to have Australian Aboriginal dot painting, Italian bocce ball, henna painting, Swiss potato sack races, and all sorts of things. I have a three-year-old, so I know parents of little ones will especially appreciate having a fenced-in play area, secure bike/stroller parking and an air-conditioned room for nursing moms. Every child can get a Passport to Prizes and get stamps to win really fun treats and prizes. Chris and AnnDee Tatlock, CFI 70 parents, and owners of Under The Sun Discount Market that recently opened at 38th and Illinois are sponsoring Global Kids area and it’s going to be a blast,” she mentioned. A diverse cuisine is on the menu. “We are excited to be hosting international food trucks so people can explore foods from different cultures—Indian, Jamaican, Venezuelan, Italian, Asian and more. Mark LaFay, who owns Old Major Market, has really been supportive and will be representing the USA with his amazing BBQ. Mark initially started his business by using the kitchen at Northwood Christian Church, so it’s pretty great how he’s coming back full circle. And being a true fall festival, there will, of course, be a special sectioned-off area with adult beverages available,” Ms. Luther-Sander added. “Art is such a wonderful expression of culture and we are expecting up to 20 globally-inspired artisans to display their work. William Denton Ray, the in-house designer for Sun King and CFI 70 father, created the Global Festival logo and his work often draw inspiration from Egyptian, African photo by Brave Youth Society Brave Youth Society will perform One World, One Voice and Indian cultures,” she on the Global Stage. mentioned. “Our website, has all the details, including times for the Global Stage line-up and Global Kids activities. Right now you can even buy drinks and Global Kids tickets for a discounted price online in advance. We also have a Global Fest Indy Facebook page ( and are on Instagram @globalfestindy,” Ms. Luther-Sander said. “Global Fest celebrates both what we have in common and our differences,” said Chris Collier, principal of Center for Inquiry 70. That awareness and exposure spur us to think about how we can contribute to a global society.”

WANTED TO BUY Local Veterinary Practice becomes the First Fear Free Practice Certified Practice in the Midwest

Can you imagine telling your dog, “Let’s go to the vet!” and seeing her tail wag? How about getting out your cat’s carrier and seeing him come running? Local pet owners won’t need to imagine it if they visit The Paw Patch Place in Indianapolis. That’s because The Paw Patch Place is part of a new initiative sweeping veterinary medicine designed to ease the stress, fear, and anxiety so many pets experience while at the veterinarian. Known as Fear FreeSM, the training and certification program helps veterinarians and entire practices modify their procedures, handling, and facilities to help pets feel safe and comfortable while receiving the medical care they need. Up until now, only certification for individuals was available. April 2nd, 2018 marked the launch of the Fear Free Practice Certification program. “We are so excited and proud to become the first Fear Free Certified Practice in the Midwest. We absolutely love making every pets visit as stress free and pleasant as possible. We enjoy seeing the pets drag their owners into the building for their visit. Being a fear free Certified Practice has changed the way we do many things. We have a separate Cat waiting area and a cat only exam room. Both the cat and dog exams rooms have special species specific calming pheromones and music playing. Nonslip covered warm exam tables and lots of treats finish out our fear free visits. Many of our patients don’t even realize they received their vaccinations.” In addition to having individual Fear Free certified veterinary professionals on staff, Fear Free Practice Certification requires a practice to meet 27 mandatory standards and earn a minimum of 1,070 points out of a possible 2,060 from another 28 standards. Some standards require as many as 9 action items to be met. Founded by veterinarian Dr. Marty Becker, the Fear Free training program was developed by board-certified veterinary behaviorists, veterinary technician behavior specialists, board-certified veterinary anesthetists, well-known veterinary practice management experts, and boarded veterinary practitioners experienced in Fear Free methods. “Providing veterinarians and their staff with the tools they need to ease this burden of fear and anxiety for our patients is the pinnacle of my 37-year veterinary career,” said Dr. Becker, who was dubbed “America’s Veterinarian” by Dr. Oz and appeared on “Good Morning America” for 17 years. “Veterinary professionals are hungry for this information. Animals and their humans need and deserve it. And now it’s here!” Pet owners who would like their pets to experience the Fear Free difference can schedule an appointment by calling 317-253-5964.

The Uncle Dan and Sophie Jam to debut on WFIU Sept 21

Starting this September, WFIU Public Radio will bring a series of specials based on the collaboration between legendary journalist, novelist, and screenwriter Dan Wakefield and tenor saxophonist Sophie Faught. The Uncle Dan and Sophie Jam combines Wakefield’s interviews with related music from Faught and her jazz ensemble. The program debuts September 21 at 7 p.m. on WFIU. Wakefield and Faught’s radio show grew out of a chance meeting between them at an Indianapolis jazz club. “For several years, I worked at the independent bookstore on Mass Avenue in Indianapolis, which of course was where I heard about the great Dan Wakefield (though I don’t think he had heard about me!). I also played with my jazz trio every Wednesday night just down the street at the Chatterbox. One night he was walking by with a friend while the band and I were playing ‘My Shining Hour,’ one of Dan’s favorite songs from the WWII era. He walked in and enjoyed the music enough to request we play another one of his favorites—‘I Should Care.’ We were delighted to do so,” said Faught. Following their initial meeting, Wakefield and Faught discovered that their literary and musical tastes intersected in many places. Wakefield started hiring Faught to play for his book signings and other events, sowing the seeds of their eventual on-air partnership. “Soon, we decided it would be fun to collaborate on a radio show. Essentially, we were just looking for more excuses to get together and share music and stories!” said Faught. The first Uncle Dan and Sophie Jam special that WFIU will air centers around the history of jazz on Indiana Avenue in Indianapolis. The program includes Wakefield interviewing author Aleta Hodge about her book Indiana Avenue—Life and Musical Journey from 1915 to 2015: Ragtime, Blues, Jazz, Spiritual, Bebop, Doo Wop, Motown, Opera and Hip Hop with Faught playing musical selections from Indiana Avenue. Faught is joined by keyboardist Carl Hines, who played at many clubs on Indiana Avenue, and drummer Kenny Phelps. The show was recorded live before an audience at the Jazz Kitchen in Indianapolis. WFIU plans to air The Uncle Dan and Sophie Jam specials once a month. The next live taping of their radio show will take place at the Blockhouse in Bloomington August 30 at 7 p.m and will be aired on WFIU in October. Wakefield and Faught will explore the life of Hoosier journalist Janet Flanner and will be joined by special guest Rai Peterson and a house band playing Paris swing from the 1920s. Tickets are $15 and are available in advance through or at the door.

City Approves License Apps For Shared Mobility Devices The Department of Business and Neighborhood Services (BNS) gave final approval for Bird and Lime scooters to return to the City of Indianapolis. Licenses for both companies will become effective on Tuesday, September 4. Since the ordinance was passed by the City-County Council on July 16, 2018, BNS has been working diligently with both companies so they can start putting scooters back on the streets. As a reminder, scooters are not allowed on sidewalks, trails (including the Cultural and Monon), the Canal Walkway or in White River State Park. When parking, scooters must be upright and leave at least 4 feet of unobstructed passageway. For additional information about the Department of Business and Neighborhood Services, please visit www.

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 was Assistant Band Director at BRHS, now band director at Crispus Attucks High School. 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? 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

Dopecetics Album Release Show Friday, August 31 Melody Inn 3826 N. Illinois Street - 21+, doors 9:00 PM, $5

I can’t remember when I first saw the Dopacetics, but it was at Sabbatical, so it must have been four-ish years ago. They sounded fabulous then and I’m sure they’ve only gotten better. The funk-rock-soul band has recorded their CD and is celebrating with an epic lineup of bands on the bill. Joining them are: The Arc of Etheline, Rooms, Blackberry Jam. The core Dopacetics are some of Indianapolis’ best musicians: David Harrison (lead vocals), Scott Hall (guitar), Poncho Hedrick (bass), G. Lamar Owens (drums), Mina Keohane (keyboards), and Mark Ortwein (wind instruments). They are often joined by other talented friends with horns and such. If you haven’t looked at the Melody Inn’s website lately, scoot on over there. They have posted some swell old photographs of early days (they opened in 1935) of the Inn.

Labor Day Street Fair Monday, September 3 The Jazz Kitchen corner 5377 N. College Avenue - all-ages, 1:00 PM, free

It’s hard to believe that this will be the 23rd Labor Day Street Fair. Which means that CATH Inc. closed 14 years ago. The street fair makes me nostalgic for CATH and Northside News, The Pie Company, Atlas, the Army/Navy Store, and everyone who has worked on that corner over the years. That said, it is always a great time to catch up with neighborhood folks. There will be food and beverages available for purchase from The Jazz Kitchen and Yats and the music starts at 1:30. I suggest bringing a lawn chair - the seating fills up quickly. This year’s lineup features: 1:30 - 3:00 -- Tucker Brothers: A powerhouse jazz quartet led by the Tucker brothers, Nick (bass) and Joel (guitar) with melodic originals laced in introspection and complexity. 3:30 - 5:00 -- Pavel and Direct Contact: Known as one of the most entertaining Latin Jazz groups in the Midwest. 5:30 - 7:00 -- Rob Dixon and Triology: Groovy jazz, with funky originals and aspects of rock, hip hop, blues, and soul.

Thanks to David Allee for starting and continuing to host the Labor Day Street Fair and to Joe Vuskovich for jumping in with both feet.

Poetic Thoughts

by C.W. Pruitt II

‘Abstract’ James’ parents gave us a ride back from the grand opening of ARTSPARK. His mother said, “I wonder how many people live their whole lives and have great talent that they never discover?” I said, “That makes a great case for broad education for children - especially in the arts.” Plato said, “What is valued will be cultivated.” What do we value? I am a big sports fan and a former high school athlete. However, I often lament the fact that the arts are starving while athletics is fed like a ravenous beast. Quincy Jones said, “The arts feed the souls of a people.” Yeah, some more soul food could do us all some good. Our time, talent, and treasure would be well-spent in helping our children grow artistically. The real fun begins when we learn to learn from them. Children are natural artists. As we age it can become difficult to recapture our inner-artistchild. Here is a poem about that I wrote a few years ago:

Art is the essence we often lose in adolescence I love living in the wonderful arts community of Broad Ripple. I take great comfort in knowing that Broad Ripple High School is an arts and humanities magnet school. If I had children, they would go to BRHS. In this community we are cultivating more than a love for the arts which will lead to a happy and meaningful life. I am certain that we have students right now who are at Broad Ripple High School whose music will be heard, whose poems will be read, and whose paintings will be pondered 100 years from now. We are quite simply cultivating greatness; however, the flower of greatness needs some sunshine. CW Pruitt II has been on the poetry scene in Broad Ripple for years. Email your questions/comments to

Mayor gets petition with 526 signatures: save the BR outdoor pool On August 15, Friends of Broad Ripple pool presented a petition with 526 signatures to the Mayor (with copies also given to the Department of Metropolitan Development) urging him to tell IndyParks to keep the Broad Ripple Park outdoor pool open. Also on the same day, the Metropolitan Development Commission held a hearing on the Broad Ripple Park Master Plan which among other things calls for closing the outdoor pool. The Friends of Broad Ripple Pool turned out to speak against the plan

by B il l M

and also gave the story to the media.

photo by Bill Malcolm

Pam Warren of Friends of Broad Ripple Pool talks to Channel 8 before the MDC meeting on August 15.

Tom McCain of Friends of B.R. Park said that Indy Parks should give further consideration to some features, including the pool. Councilor Christine Scales also spoke in favor of the pool and the need to make more effort to find lifeguards. Councilor Fanning said she favored the year round pool proposal which would make it easier to hire life guards. Although the MDC approved the plan, MDC President John Dillon admonished the IndyParks Director to state on the record that the pool would continue for the time being, that it would not be closed until Indy Parks was ready to install another aquatic feature, and that – regardless of the plan and before any major step is taken with regard to the pool – that step must again be approved by the Parks Board and the MDC. Relatedly, I reached out to Community Health media relations staff for a comment on their proposal to IndyParks to build a health clinic in the park which would include a rec center. At press time, they did not return my calls, however. According to the consultant for IndyParks, the new YMCA downtown (City Way YMCA) apparently has a similar partnership with Franciscan Health and both are located in the same building (although the Franciscan facility is not located in a public park). To help save the outdoor pool and see that it is better managed, join the

Friends of Broad Ripple Pool on Facebook. And let the Mayor, our City-County Councilor Collen Fanning, and BRVA know you support keeping the outdoor pool a permanent fixture in Broad Ripple Park. It can be better managed. And we already have a splash park at 61st and Broadway Park. Meanwhile, if you like to swim outdoors, the Carmel Clay Park pool and the Jordan Y, are all still open. Only our city pools closed August 5, although Carmel Clay is only open weekends. Johnny’s Market to Stay Open Until Halloween Rather than close on Labor Day, Johnny’s Market (which sells flowers, fruits, and vegetables) will stay open until Halloween this year. Then they re-open with Christmas Trees later in the fall. You will find them in front of the Fresh Thyme Parking Garage on College Avenue where you can get Decker melons, Indiana tomatoes, sweet corn and more. Juice it Up in the Ripple After two years of waiting, we finally have a fresh juice bar in the Village. Natural Born Juicers has opened at 882 East Coil (just off the Monon Trail near La Piedad). I am a carrot juice fanatic. Enjoy their new outdoor seating. While Fresh Thyme has a juice bar, their machines have been broken for the last two weeks. More drama in the flood control project Jim Polito of Finish the Floodwall and Save the Warfleigh sent along the following update regarding an issue regarding the controversial project: “Many recently received notice from the City they are property owners within a proposed “White River-Indianapolis North Flood Control Improvement District.” The district intends to capture incremental property tax revenue resulting from completing flood control work within the district and use these revenues for flood control work… Nevertheless, while the logic of the proposal is sound, (he) believes the City’s implementation is problematic and may have raised more questions than it answered. “The City’s notice of public hearing lacks any significant explanation of what incremental property tax revenue is and lacks detail regarding the exact cost and location of flood control work within the district. Accordingly, many individuals see this as an attempt by the City to impose an open-ended tax increase upon property owners within the district. …. (He) cited other implementation problems, including that the City seemingly seeks to impermissibly use captured incremental property tax revenue: (1) for purposes other than flood control work, (2) for purposes that benefit the City of Indianapolis overall and not just property owners within the district, and (3) for flood control work outside the boundaries of the proposed district. Out of the Ripple: Your Denver Weekend Denver is a short flight from Indianapolis with three airlines offering non-stop flights at low fares. I went for a long weekend recently and discovered the new River North Arts District (RiNo) which is just north of downtown. The new Source Hotel and Marketplace feature a hotel, shops and great restaurants. Also fun is the Highlands neighborhood west of downtown. Chessman Park is worth a visit as is the Denver Botanical Garden which is just east of the park. Don’t miss the fabulous Union Station which also has shops and restaurants as well as a farmers market on Saturday mornings. It is also where you catch the A commuter rail line to and from the airport. I liked the Homewood Suites Downtown. Other great hotels include the Hyatt at the Convention Center and the Hampton Inn on Sherman. And of course the new Source Hotel in RiNo. Bill Malcolm also writes for ALL ABOARD INDIANA (see the August newsletter at www.

MORE INDIANA STATE FAIR In the early 1800s, John and Sarah Johnson owned a farm located on the banks of Fall Creek. That farm is now the site of the Indiana State Fairgrounds. A full-sized replica of their cabin home is on display in the Pioneer Village building at the Fairgrounds. This year at the Fair, four members of the Johnson family were seen visiting the cabin. They the GreatGreat-Great-Great granddaughter, Great-Great-Great-Great-Great Granddaughter, and two GreatGreat-Great-Great-Great-Great grandchildren of John and Sarah Johnson. So, nearly 200 years later, four generations of this branch of John and Sarah Johnson’s family still live in Indianapolis and still spend time in the Johnson cabin.

Clue: H 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 1 in the left section of the middle row that contains 2-5-7-9. The 1 in the center section eliminates the spaces to the right of the 7. The 1 in the right section of the middle row eliminates the space to the left of the 9. The 1 in the left section of the top row eliminates the spaces above the 2. The only place left is to the left of the 5. You have learned one technique used to solve Sudoku puzzles. There are many more.

In 1950 it was at 6287 College Avenue, on the southeast corner of College and Broad Ripple Avenue, where Louie’s Wine Dive is today. Later it moved to where CVS is today. The ad mentions TV News, which was a local publication predating TV Guide. It was also in several locations in Broad Ripple, which you can read about in the upcoming history of TV News in a future Gazette.

I was one of two Indiana Jills who judged the Michigan Wine Competition a few weeks ago. Jill Blume is an Enology Specialist with the Indiana Wine Grape Council. She works closely with Indiana winemakers, wineries and grape growers testing and analyzing their products. We both got involved in the Indiana wine world at the same time, and have been friends and colleagues ever since. Our ride to and from Lansing gave us plenty of time to catch up on our friendship and the Indiana wine industry. She shared information on NEW wineries, how Indiana’s changing climate impacts grape growth, why the state needs more wine grape growers and the pros and cons of the growing distillery business on wine sales. ( We also talked about the Council’s public outreach. One of its most successful projects is the Indiana Beer, Wine and Spirits venue at the Indiana State Fair.

I made three visits to the State Fair this year and on the last day I ducked into the Grand Hall to see the venue. What a difference a few years makes. Wine and beer was first served at the fair in 2014. The list was short and the space was small. Now people of all ages come to the Grand Hall to enjoy air conditioning, live music, comfortable seating AND areas for those over 21 to sample or purchase Indiana made alcoholic beverages. Information on the “farming” aspect of beer, wine and spirits is presented in a fun, user-friendly way. Well done IWGC. Just before I left the grounds that night, I ran into Nora Spitznogle. We talked for a long time about the positive growth and changes at the fair. History and education remain important elements and seem to thrive when offered in non traditional forms like the Grand Hall tasting venue. Well done ISFC. Jill A.

Did You Know?

. . . that you can upload your photos of ANYTHING in the Broad Ripple area from ANY TIME to add to the VirtualBroadRipple Archives?

Go to

Right in my Own B a c k y a r d by Brandt Carter Picture this. Come on In. If you’ve watched Antiques Roadshow on PBS lately, you will notice they are running old shows but with updated appraisals of the items people bring to the show. People bring things from Folk Art to musical instruments, carpets to dolls, china to silver, and the paintings they inherited or pulled out of the trash. What I find interesting is that many of the appraisals go down in value, but almost all the painting appraisals go up in value. So that leads me to this column of what’s happening in Broad Ripple in the art world. Is there a place for you to spend your money that will add value to your investment and beauty to your surroundings? Broad Ripple, 10 to 15 years ago, was a real hub of an active art scene. We had a variety of galleries, the Indianapolis Art Center (once the Indianapolis Art League,) and Hoosier Salon Gallery all not far from the Indianapolis Art Museum. Broad Ripple Art Fair is surviving and so is the Art Center, but most galleries have closed or moved. We only have a few individual artists, framers, and galleries left and most locations have been replaced by eateries or bars. Now enters Green Men Art Gallery. Donnae Dole, Gallery Manager, formerly of Hoosier Salon Gallery, is building a new gallery to showcase local artists. From contemporary, still life, jewelry, landscape, and representational, she is developing a display to please any art buyer. Donnae is curating oils, watercolors, prints, acrylics, sculpture, jewelry, and design furniture. And you say you have never bought art! Now is the time. How do you do it? You can enter art collecting at any level. Most connoisseurs suggest you buy what you like. If you inherit, have it appraised. It might be worth a lot. When asked, Donnae said, “If you need that special piece of art for your room or office, I know the artisans of the area. If I don’t have it on hand, I can put you in touch with someone who can create it for you.” She also said she is reaching out to interior designers and architects because the gallery is associated with Green Men Restoration, a company of craftsmen specializing in restoration, remodeling, and design with a focus on the Meridian Kessler area and there abouts. The shop often has music on the weekends and an offering of Harvest Café coffees to try. Check out the gallery at 54th and Keystone between Marco’s and Backyard Birds. Also, you can find a limited showing of dog and cat portraits just next door at Backyard Birds. I don’t usually share my art with my readers, BUT….for the past year and going forward, I am painting dog and cat portraits to raise money for Canine Companions For Independence. I have talked about Steve and me raising service dogs for this group often. We are raising #16, Benton II, a golden retriever. All sales go to Canine Companions to build a new campus to train and place dogs for FREE to people with disabilities other than blindness. Stop in. (PS. Late Thursday and Friday, you can bring your dog and cat and get their nails trimmed for $6.) You might just want to immortalize your best friend. Also, I have a few oil paintings in Green Men Gallery. If you have a free afternoon and want some inspiration, you will find it at Green Men Art Gallery, Backyard Birds (and I even have cat portraits at City Dog Grocery.) Art has a way of feeding your spirit and soul. Donnae and I talked and we both wished that Broad Ripple would bustle with art galleries again. “Art washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life.” ― Pablo Picasso Brandt Carter, artist, herbalist, and naturalist, owns Backyard Birds at 2374 E. 54th Street.

Broad Ripple Museum

From time to time we will display items that have been donated to preserve the history of Broad Ripple. This match book cover is from the Broad Ripple Bowl. In the 1950’s, the bowling alley was between the Monon train tracks and Borky’s Drive In. Today this is west of McDonald’s to the Monon Trail. Do any readers know who C.E. Foreman was? Do you have any bowling pictures from BR Bowl? Please contact us.
