Light agenda at August Land Use meeting By Alan Hague

At the 2018 Rocky Ripple Festival.

19th Annual Rocky Ripple Festival set for Sept 22 By Mario Morone


The 19th Annual Rocky Ripple Festival is an art-filled, high energy day of live music, local art, creative activities, food, craft beer and wine by local vendors. This family friendly festival features over eighty artist booths, six bands, popular kids’ stage and activity area, drum circle, performance art and more! It is located in the center of Rocky Ripple at Hohlt Park at 840 West 53rd Street. It’s a fun day for all ages with free admission! “It gets better every year!” exclaimed Dhyana Raynor, vice-president of the Rocky Ripple Community Association and festival coordinator, describing this year’s Rocky Ripple Festival, Saturday, September 22, from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. “The event is in its 19th year and I have been with the festival since 2004 and festival coordinator for eight years. We have different areas of the festival like the artist’s area where Megan Wright is the coordinator. Our artisan booth space sells out by the end of July. It’s very popular with artist and artisans. The Rocky Ripple Festival is not only live music, artist areas, food and beer, but also is a festival for families that is safe and fun, creative and playful! While volunteers supervise the Children’s Activity Area, it is a hands-on, self-directed play area of paint stations, bubble stations, and a volleyball court-sized sand station. What’s not to love!” she added. In the pennant paint station, children are given an array of washable paints to decorate pre-cut pennants for them to take home or leave for the Heritage collection, displayed at the following festival. There is a Kid’s Stage, hooping, hair color spraying, and more! The White Pine Wilderness Academy will offer a day’s worth of experiential nature-based activities. And Mira, a Nigerian Dwarf goat will be present with her three newly-born kids. The children’s activity area does not charge a fee, but donations are gratefully accepted. This area of the festival is becoming a creative children’s area destination for a growing number of families. There will also be give away prizes, donated by local merchants and restaurants. To donate an item or gift certificate, contact: Delicious foods and craft beer will be available from these local vendors: La Chinita Poblana, Punch Burger, Dal-Forno wood fired pizza, Wilson’s Sweet Corn, LICK Ice Cream and the Broad Ripple Brewpub. Returning to the 2018 music stage is emcee Tracy Fouts and sound technician Chris White, who coordinates the band line-up. Their order of appearance is: Scott McNew and the Twisted Knobs (Hangout rock), Jeff Kelly and the Graveyard Shift (Alternative folk and Americana), The Sidewinders (Americana), Sarah Grain and the Billions of Stars (Folk infused with jazz, bossa-nova and rock), Sidewalk Souls (Classic 70’s rock with a nod to true soul music) and Midwest Rhythm Exchange (Indiana boys putting their spin on traditional gypsy jazz). The Sound Stage Sponsor is Blue Heron Construction Company, which is owned by Rocky Ripple resident John Bleakley. All is set for a fabulous day in the park. The event is made possible by generous sponsorship of local businesses and organizations: Blue Heron Construction, Broad Ripple Brewpub, Great Frame Up, Good Earth Natural Food, Meridian Hills Co-op Nursery and Kindergarten School, The Riviera Club, Global Gifts, Embarque Yoga, White Pine Wilderness Academy, Children’s Museum Haunted House Guild, Linder Design and the Adam Garvey Family. The 19th Annual Rocky Ripple Festival celebrates an eclectic blend of art, food and music for all families and individuals from “A Community within the City.”

There were only two items on the agenda at the August 28 public meeting of the Broad Ripple Village Association’s (BRVA) Land Use and Development committee (see in bold below). There were approximately 12 in attendance. A. 6173 College Avenue, Stacy Boggs regarding a variance of use to provide for a hair and nail salon (not permitted) in an existing building. Petition #2018-UV2-018 Hearing continued to Sept. 11, 2018 (6:05-6:25) This petition is to allow a salon to move into a residence at 6173 N. College Avenue, two doors down from the SE corner of 62nd and College, across the street from Fifth Church of Christ, Scientist. There are three parking spots in the rear. Employees would likely park on the street. The spa is expected to open sometime in the next year. The Metropolitan Development Staff recommends approval. The BRVA committee also voted to support this petition. B. 818 Broad Ripple Avenue, Colleen Fanning, BRVA Executive Director, regarding the new location of the BRVA office. (6:25-6:35) This was for information only, describing the move of the BRVA office from the 6300 block of Guilford to 818 Broad Ripple Avenue. Some readers may remember this as the temporary home for the Indy Super Bowl information a few years back. The next public meeting of the BRVA Land Use and Development committee is scheduled for Tuesday, September 25, starting at 6pm in the basement of Northminster Presbyterian Church, 1660 Kessler Boulevard.

Ryanhood to Perform at Indy Folk Series

Ryanhood, named ‘Best Group/Duo’ at the 2014 International Acoustic Music Awards, will be performing live in Indianapolis on Saturday, September 22, 2018, at 7:00 p.m., for the first concert of the 2018-19 season at the Indy Folk Series. Acoustic-duo Ryanhood got their first break more than a decade ago as street-performers at Boston’s Quincy Market. It was there that they were spotted by a college booking agent and thrust into the college touring scene. They’ve since gone on to perform more than 800 shows in 45 U.S. states over the past decade and have shared stages with Jason Mraz, Matt Nathanson, Train, and many more. Cameron Hood’s rich and folky lead vocals, Ryan Green’s explosive guitar and mandolin riffs, and their airtight vocal harmonies prompted the Arizona Daily Star to call them “a match made in radio heaven.” The Indy Folk Series is an all-ages listening room venue featuring superb acoustics, and a warm and welcoming atmosphere. Concerts are held in the performance space at the Unitarian Universalist Church, 615 W. 43rd Street, Indianapolis, IN 46208. Tickets are $15 in advance through Brown Paper Tickets, or $20 at the door. Student/senior discounts are available. For more information, go to, or check out Ryanhood at

North United Meth. Church to Host Citywide Taizé Service

Four Indianapolis churches that offer a monthly Taizé worship service combine their efforts to present a citywide Taizé service annually. This year that service will be held at 5 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 30 in the sanctuary of North United Methodist Church, 3808 North Meridian Street, and the public is encouraged to attend. In addition to North United Methodist Church, the other Indianapolis churches sponsoring the service are Central Christian Church, St. Luke’s United Methodist Church and Trinity Episcopal Church. What is a Taizé service? It is a type of worship service that involves sung and chanted prayers, meditation, periods of silence, and liturgical readings. It was developed at Taizé, a monastic community in France, in the 1940s. Internationally recognized, the community and its worship have an ecumenical focus on being a sign of reconciliation between separate people. This service is in recognition of the International Day of Peace (or World Peace Day) on Sept. 21, as established by a unanimous vote of the United Nations in 1981. “Taizé is a wonderful opportunity to explore worship for folks who may be turned off by other conventional forms of worship,” said Rev. Darren Cushman Wood, North Church’s senior pastor. “The emphasis on silence and meditation through congregational singing has helped many renew their faith.” Rev. Robert Schilling, a Butler-Tarkington resident who is now retired but is still a very active member of North Church, was instrumental in starting that particular church’s Sunday evening vesper series of monthly Taizé services. North holds its regular Taizé services on the fourth Sunday of each month at 5 p.m. in its chapel. “I moved to Indianapolis in 1961 to join North Church’s staff as minister of worship and the arts, which included being the organist, choirmaster and associate pastor,” Rev. Schilling said. “About two years after the construction of our current chapel addition in 1996 and 1997, we began our Taizé services. I am very grateful to Ray Heilman and others who have continued planning and

Schilling said. “At our Taizé services I get the feeling of a close, personal relationship with God while in the company of other praying Christians. “In order to remind us of the international scope of the Taizé movement, at North’s monthly Taizé service we often have scripture readings and chants sung in both English and another language, such as Latin, French, German, Spanish and Chinese,” he added. “Trinity Episcopal Church was the first church to offer Taizé in Indianapolis,” North member Donna Sandage added. “I began attending Taizé services in the mid-nineties there. When I began attending North 10 years ago, I also began attending North’s Taizé services.”

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

Poetic Thoughts

by C.W. Pruitt II

When I was in graduate school at Ball State, I began reading books by French atheist philosopher Albert Camus. Although I am now religious, I still enjoy reading and discussing the existentialist who had such a large impact on 60’s activists in America. I often recommend “Myth De Sisyphus” to my atheist friends who are interested in raising their vibe. Here is a poem about that book:

Regional transit leadership void—Indy joins with Fishers and Noblesville to eviscerate rail corridor What if there were dedicated train tracks perfect for commuter rail, bus rapid transit, a special events train, or Amtrak service that went from north of Noblesville through Fishers, stopped at 71st Street, and then went all the way to downtown Indianapolis to 10th Street? Actually, there are such tracks already in place (to 22nd Street) and the corridor continues to 10th. The Nickel Plate Railroad/State Fair train tracks go from north of Noblesville all the way to 22nd Street and the corridor continues to 10th Street in downtown Indy – including a stop at 71st Street. However, in a surprise move, the City of Indianapolis Department of Public Works (in a joint filing to the Surface Transportation Board (STB)) supported the controversial Fishers-Noblesville request using their attorney to convert the State Fair Train tracks (aka Nickel Plate Line) into a bike and hike trail -- without any public input or comment. A freight railroad wants the tracks to remain and the STB has jurisdiction. Specifically, on August 17, Chicago attorney Robert Wimbish of Fletcher and Sippel (who represents Fishers and Noblesville) submitted comments for Indianapolis as well to the Federal Surface Transportation Board offering to link Indy’s portion of the rail line (from 13th Street to 96th Street, a distance of 12 miles) to the other segments as a rail trail and supporting abandonment of the rail corridor. Indianapolis offered to serve as a sponsor for the trail and urged prompt action. Read the DPW/Fishers/Noblesville comments at: DPW issued the following statement in response to my queries and was kind enough to send me the pleading: “While there are no plans at this time to convert the rail line into a trail, the recent filings by the Department of Public Works preserves the city’s ability to work with neighborhood and community leaders to explore increased connectivity along the corridor. Currently, no funds have been allocated to explore future options for this line and no planning process is currently underway. Therefore, asking for public comment at this time would be premature.” A few questions remain: Who authorized this at City Hall? Did our City-County Councilors know? IndyParks? Why was the Metropolitan Planning Organization not involved who handles regional transit planning? Who paid for the Chicago law firm to file comments with the STB? When I reached out to other organizations, (the Indianapolis Chamber, Commuter Connect/Central Indiana Transportation Authority, IndyGo, and transit organizer Kim Irwin of Health by Design) no one seemed to be particularly concerned by the development or had no position. IndyGo issued the following statement: “Funding for the 70% transit expansion is coming from Marion County income taxes. The Green Line corridor has long been planned as a regional line to connect the northeast suburbs to downtown Indianapolis, but the maximum income tax of .25% and the county-by-county approach taken by the legislature are both factors that limit the feasibility of the Green Line in the near future. Decisions about right-of-way projects within Marion County are made by the Department of Public Works.” (What IndyGo is saying is because Hamilton County has not voted to increase the

income tax .25% to fund regional transit, they won’t be pursuing a suburban rapid bus line to the suburbs.) Some local media coverage portrayed this as development of a 50-mile rail trail ignoring the Nickel Plate controversy. The lack of regional leadership on this transit issue is disappointing and exposes an embarrassing flaw in the region’s planning process (or lack thereof). The corridor should kept for use by transit. The tracks should not be torn out. Or joint use should be explored. Tell DPW and City leaders to hold hearings and take comments on their unilateral proposal and let our city councilors know that this would be a perfect transit corridor. Ask DPW to withdraw their comments to the STB. Advocates should join Save the Nickel Plate on Facebook to follow updates. The group had a rally at the State House recently. Scooters Return to the Ripple The scooters are back in the Village as of September 5. Laura Beck of Lime Bikes told me 500 scooters are expected in the Village alone. Plus, we may have Bird Scooters, their competitor. Check the Lime Bike app for details. Coming soon may be dock-free Lime E Bikes which unlike our current bike share program does not utilize docking stations. Leave your car at home September 21 September 21 is Car Free Indy Day.

Clue: R equals G

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 2 in the center section that contains 1-5-7-8-9. The 2 in the middle section of the top row eliminates the spaces above and below the 1. The 2 in the right section of the middle row eliminates the spaces on both sides of the 9. The only place left is above the 5. You have learned one technique used to solve Sudoku puzzles. There are many more.

Season Less Whites For some, Labor Day means the unofficial end of summer and for those who only drink white wine during the warm months of the year, time to move on to the reds. Before you do that, give a few of these unique whites a chance. They are affordable, refreshing and delicious enough to make you think about becoming an all season white wine fan. Saint Clair Family Estates, Sauvignon Blanc, Marlborough, New Zealand - 2017. You want to drink Sauvignon Blanc as young as possible, and even though this bottle is a few seasons old (harvest down under is in February and March), its zippy tangy FULL ON flavor rush of passion fruit, white grapefruit and lemongrass tastes just as fresh and new as the day this bottle was capped. Dry Creek Vineyards, Fume Blanc, Sonoma County - 2017 - Winery founder Davide Stare took a risk thirty years ago and labeled his flagship white wine, Fume Blanc. The term comes from the style the sauvignon grape is most commonly made in the Loire Valley of France. It was a hit then and continues to be decades later. Enjoy soft hints of citrus and a lush clean mineral finish. Pieropan, Soave Classico, Italy - Rich, creamy flavors of stone fruit and almond. In need of an elegant unusual dry white? This is your bottle. 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 Life of The Party Adventures in Entertaining

by Elizabeth Morse

A Hoosier Tradition! I have 250 feet of fence line at the back of my yard. Along that fence there are about 15 Persimmon trees. They are what lots of folks would describe as “junk trees.” That is, not stunners and fairly messy. They also attract loads of nightlife: raccoons, possums and the like hang out to gobble the ripe fruit every fall. If you haven’t ever worked with persimmons, they are small orange (when ripe) fruits that are similar in flavor to an apricot, but subtle. The skins of are VERY tannic. It isn’t ever a good idea to pop one in your mouth unless you are into an incredibly bitter bite. They also contain several “pits.” You might wonder why one would even bother with such a fruit. Here’s the deal. The trees are prolific and it is easy to collect the fallen fruit from the ground. Once you run them through a food mill, you are left with a sticky sweet pulp. I’m not gonna lie, preparing the fruit takes some effort but it my case, with so many trees, I can’t justify buying the pulp already processed. If you don’t have photo by Elizabeth Morse trees, pick up a container or two at Lilly Orchard. Lots of places sell it, but Lilly has always been my go-to. And they usually have it. With the pulp and a few other ingredients, you’ll have yourself a lovely, traditional Hoosier dessert. It is rich and sweet, with a texture falling somewhere between cake brownies. Perfect for a chilly fall evening and certainly Thanksgiving dinner.

Persimmon Pudding 1 cup of persimmon pulp ¾ cup sugar 1 cup all-purpose flour 1 tablespoon molasses 1 teaspoon baking powder ½ teaspoon nutmeg ½ teaspoon cinnamon ¼ teaspoon cardamom 1 cup milk ¼ pound melted butter (unsalted) Combine persimmon pulp, sugar and molasses. Beat in eggs, milk and butter. In a separate bowl, combine flour, baking powder, nutmeg, cinnamon and cardamom. Mix the dry ingredients into the persimmon mixture. Grease a 9-inch square pan very well (or line with parchment paper) and pour batter into prepared pan. Bake at 325 for about an hour. (A knife or toothpick will come out clean when ready). Cool, cut into squares and serve with whipped cream or vanilla ice cream. Pro Tip: My sweet friend Jill Cline makes Persimmon Pudding every year during the holidays. She ALWAYS forgets to buy persimmon pulp in advance and it often sells out. Then she scrambles to find it. Don’t be like Jill, buy it now and freeze it!  I hope you enjoy the recipe and maybe it will become your tradition, too.
