Broad Ripple Park Master Plan - family center By Mario Morone Indy Parks & Recreation has issued a master plan (20 to 25 year) project for Broad Ripple Park regarding its future upgrading of various areas. This will include a new community center and aquatics area. It also expands an existing woodland area, engages with nature and incorporates environmental education. Broad Ripple Park has over 300,000 annual visitors and is a vibrant part of Indianapolis. Tom McCain is President of Friends of Broad Ripple Park, which is a non-profit 501(c) (3) group. “We support and endorse the 2018 Broad Ripple Park Master Plan, which was developed with input from hundreds of citizens both online and in multiple community meetings over several months,” he explained. “Among our favorite features are the greatly-improved, and much needed, Family Center, the event plaza to support the many public gatherings that take place in the park, enhanced access and engagement with White River, a new dog park, and greater opportunity for environmental education,” McCain mentioned. “It will take time to create all the planned improvements, of course, but the end result will provide multiple activities for a diverse population for years into the future.” Colleen Fanning, Broad Ripple Village Association Executive Director and District 2 City-County Councilor, said, “This is a tremendous opportunity to improve Broad Ripple Park and transform the park’s Family Center in a way that wouldn’t otherwise be possible. Indianapolis is facing significant budget challenges with limited funds for parks and public recreation, let alone other urgent needs such as crime prevention and infrastructure. This requires communities to be innovative, and structuring this project as a public-private partnership provides numerous benefits. Community members voiced strong support for this option during the planning and public input process. My role is to now advocate for the best partnership structure, and we are making great progress. Broad Ripple Park will soon be more accessible, appealing and relevant to the current needs of our community.” Some questions that Ms. Fanning has recently answered include: Q: What’s happening at Broad Ripple Park? A: The parcel that currently houses the Family Center and its parking lot is being redeveloped via a public-private partnership. The Indianapolis Department of Metropolitan Development is managing the process and recently issued a Request for Proposals (Broad Ripple Park Request For Proposals). Potential development partners are currently being evaluated, and a final decision is expected in the near future. Q: Why would we sell land or privatize our park? A: The land is not being sold. The land will always remain owned by the City and retain its current PK-1 (Primary Parks) zoning classification. Q: Who will build and own the family center? A: While the City will continue to own the land, it will enter into a long-term ground lease with a selected development team. That development team would then construct the new Broad Ripple Park Family Center. Q: Will the facility always be owned by the selected development team? A: No, the City intends to acquire the building in 3-5 years. At that time, the ground lease would cease to exist with the selected development team, and the City would own any structures and assume all leases with existing tenants (i.e., health care partner). Q: Who would lease the space in the Broad Ripple Family Center? A: Once constructed, the development team will lease a portion to Indy Parks for parks programming and activation. The remaining space will be leased to an ancillary, subordinate health care partner. The health care partner would only run any nonpark/public recreation services, such as wellness or healthcare services. Q: Who is choosing the developer? What’s the timeline? A: The City of Indianapolis has convened a selection committee comprised of staff from Indy Parks, Department of Metropolitan Development (DMD), and Mayor’s Office staff, as well as community leadership/stakeholders. A recommendation will be made by the Selection Committee to either accept a bid or not accept any bids. In February 2018, Indy Parks released a Request for Information (RFI) to request

From your editor: I have received several requests for a reprint of the 1968 publication “A History of Broad Ripple” by The Junior Historical Society and The Riparian Newspaper, both of Broad Ripple High School. We haven’t published this information since 2004 and many new residents are now in Broad Ripple and have never read it. Where we come from is important. It has some errors. I will try to correct them as they appear. I will attempt to reprint the entire booklet. I will include each section as space permits. -AH

Religious life grows As the villages of Broad Ripple and Wellington grew, so did the religious life. The first ministers in the area were comparable to circuit judges, traveling from settlement to settlement. Often these ministers had to be handy with their fists as well as with their Bibles. For example, in 1836, Reverend James Havens’ camp meeting was attended by some of John Burke’s canal workmen with the intention of breaking up the organized efforts against sin. When Reverend Havens objected to their plans, he was challenged to a fight. However, he administered such a sound thrashing to the ringleader, Mr. Burke, that the workmen retreated with new respect for the preacher and religion. One of the first churches in the area was Union Church, built in Wellington in 1851 by popular subscription. Wilson Whitesell and Richard Miller built the frame structure on land donated by Jacob C. Coil, the son of Broad Ripple’s founder, Jacob Coil. Besides the regular congregational meetings, club meetings and socials were also held at the church. Many of the members of the Union Church were Methodists; however, the first minister, Henry Coe, was a Presbyterian. Jacob C. Coil and

ideas and information for the conceptual design, development, construction, and financing of a new family center and health care facility. In January 2019, a Request for Proposal (RFP) was released to develop a new family center (on the same site as the existing building) to incorporate both recreation and health activities (not a hospital) within Broad Ripple Park as outlined in the Broad Ripple Park Master Plan. Three RFP proposals were received in February, and a bid selection committee will recommend one preferred proposal to the Metropolitan Development Commission (MDC) during its upcoming April 3rd meeting. The bid selection committee’s decision and the bids will be published as soon as the determination has been made. Following a final decision, DMD will seek approval to negotiate a deal on behalf of Indy Parks. Q: What other parts of the park will be sold, built on or privatized? A: None. This project is specific to this parcel, and the intention for this was included in the Master Plan, which is available at: Q: How can readers get involved? A: We want to hear your voice and thoughts on what the new facility should (and shouldn’t) include, how it functions and more. You can contact Indy Parks at (317) 327-7275 or email Josh John, President BRVA Board of Directors, said, “BRVA is committed to facilitating meaningful community discussion and evaluation, and this project was no different. Planning for changes at Broad Ripple Park included a citizens’ steering committee, several public meetings and an online survey, generating productive input from hundreds of Broad Ripple residents. Community members prioritized greenspace protection, expanded opportunities for fitness and retaining public ownership of the land. We are accomplishing all of this and more, positioning Broad Ripple Park to best serve our community both now and in the future.” Indy Parks is working together with BRVA and FBRP to enhance Broad Ripple Park for future generations.

John Burke served as the church’s first trustees. The first Methodist Church building was constructed in 1884, at 6195 Guilford, where the present Methodist church now stands. The trustees were J. S. Mustard, 0. B. Bateman, William M. Dawson, Dennis Garriety, and J. W. Gates. In the 1890’s, two other churches were added: the Pentecost Church, built in 1898, and the Christian Church, dedicated on April 27, 1899.

Chapter Six

Social life develops Broad Ripple-Wellington citizens were usually ready for entertainment after completing their daily work. As a result, various social organizations were formed so that the people could get together and socialize with their friends. One of the first social groups in Broad Ripple was the Grange. This organization was started in the 1860’s in the Midwest as a farmers’ social organization, but eventually became a strong political factor in correcting evils of the day, especially those pertaining to the railroads. Brought to Broad Ripple in 1873, the Grange provided an opportunity for farmers in the area to discuss their work and problems and to socialize. The major get-togethers were held in the form of large family picnics. On June 2, 1877, the Independent Order of Odd Fellows, I.O.O.F., Broad Ripple Lodge No. 548 was formed. Housed over Watt’s Drug Store, now Lobraico’s Drug Store [2019: Currently Runners Forum], the Broad Ripple Chapter became the most prosperous lodge in Marion County outside of Indianapolis. Beginning as “chance meetings of ‘odd fellows’ at taverns for convivial purposes,” states Barry R. Sulgrove in his History of Indianapolis and Marion County, “the I.O.O.F. advanced first to a permanent organization and then to a moral and benevolent association standing fairly, among the most potent organizations for good in the world.” Another fraternal organization that came to Broad Ripple and became an important part of the community was the Masonic Lodge. The group, formed in the 1890’s, however, lacked a permanent meeting place until 1907, when the Lodge became the beneficiary of Jacob S. Mustard, who left $25,000 to the organization. The Masons built a three-story, brick and stone hall near the corner of present-day Guilford and Broad Ripple avenues. [2019: Currently Brick House Dueling Pianos]

Great swinging’ originals and inventive composing are the hallmarks of this time tested big band that has been at work since the 70’s. Pianist, composer and arranger Steve Allee is a veteran of more than 35 years on the music scene, working principally in jazz, writing and performing for syndicated radio programs, network television and motion pictures, and as a music educator. Steve has released ten+ CDs as a leader, the two most recent being his trio recordings, Dragonfly (June 2008) and Colors (April 2007) are artful collaborations with bassist Bill Moring and drummer Tim Horner. Saxophonists Rich Perry and Rob Dixon appear on select tracks. In his liner notes for Dragonfly, jazz journalist Ken Franckling noted that “From start to finish, Dragonfly makes it clear that this is a band in which each of the players finds their interaction to be exhilarating…. this trio is all about making the most of the journey – as the best jazz should.” A native son and longtime resident of Indianapolis, Indiana, Steve was fortunate to grow up in the hometown of many jazz greats, including brothers Wes, Buddy and Monk Montgomery, Slide Hampton, J.J. Johnson, David Baker, Freddie Hubbard and Melvin Rhyne, among others. His playing style has a touch, sparkling clarity and improvisational variations reminiscent of the late Bill Evans, as well as a very strong blues influence that Steve credits to his exposure to Buddy Montgomery and Horace Silver.

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 Girstle Hague 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 great grandparents John E. Hague and Nora Hague lived at 6148 N. College Avenue and 6170 Guilford Avenue. My great grandparents John Dawson and Nora Ringer Dawson lived at 6122 Carrollton Avenue. My 2nd great grandaunt and uncle, Sarah Coil Thompson and Hamlin Thompson, lived at 6116 Guilford Avenue. 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 longtime 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.

Town with Nora Spitznogle Happy springtime, peeps! My perennial marker of the start of the warm weather outdoor music season is Record Store Day - Saturday, April 13. I hope to see you all out and about.

The Jazz Kitchen 25th Anniversary Celebration: Steve Allee Big Band Saturday, March 30 5377 N. College Ave - 21+, $25-35, two shows, 7:30 & 10 pm

First of all, congratulations to David and Jami Allee for their 25th anniversary of opening the The Jazz Kitchen. They were just young newlyweds when they opened the club and had the moxie and vision to create what is now an important part of the music culture on Indianapolis. When I worked at CATH Coffeehouse (on the site of Fresh Market) I loved being business neighbors with The Jazz Kitchen. Not only did we share a trash area - which Dave was kind enough to fence in - we shared a sidewalk and wall. Many nights I would linger by the window at the corner of 54th and College where I would press my ear against the glass to listen to the music for a few minutes. When Dave and Jami - with a host of family and friends - were scrubbing and painting the space, they found the painting that has been above Table 21 ever since then. The Jazz Kitchen is celebrating the milestone with a series of 25 concerts, starting with the Steve Allee Big Band. The first show is almost sold out, there are still a few lounge side tickets available. So far, there are tickets available for the second show. Cheers to The Jazz Kitchen - here’s to another twenty-five years!


In the last issue we had two errors that were corrected before press time, but gremlins caused the wrong files to be printed. Apologies to new business Pots and Pans Pie Co. and to Bill Malcolm. Both were misspelled in issue #6.

We are so dang lucky to have two nationally recognized independent record stores in our neighborhood. Big thanks to you all for continuing to support them. Both Indy CD & Vinyl and LUNA music are pulling out all of the stops for Record Store Day 2019. Visit for a list of the exclusive RSD releases.

LUNA music - 5202 N. College Avenue

The Record Store Day festivities start early in the morning with delicious Taylor’s Bakery Donuts for the folks waiting for the door to exclusive RSD releases at 8am. There will also be the annual sidewalk sale happening out front. This year (starting at 10:00) 52nd Street will be closed between College and Broadway for a proper block party. I’m extra excited about this because it will make it easier for me to dart across the street to catch a snippet of the bands performing behind LUNA during my Red Key shift....wait did I say that out loud? Rusty Redenbacher and DJ Mr. Kinetik will be hosting the festivities. The bands start at noon and the last one takes the stage at 6:00. There will be food and drinks and such for sale. Visit LUNA’s website for set times and other details.

Many more color photos from each issue are available at Serving Broad Ripple Since 1978

Indy CD & Vinyl - 806 Broad Ripple Avenue

Indy CD & Vinyl is opening at 8am on Saturday and extending their party to the next day. They’ll have live music on their indoor stage on Saturday and a big stage and beer garden in the alley between Ossip and Huntington Bank on Sunday. And how cool is this? Indy CD & Vinyl is releasing their first record - by the band Stranger Attractor - on their new label and it’s an official #RSD19 selection. Visit Indy CD & Vinyl’s website for the set times and other goodies.

-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.

touch the face of the crystal and find a radio station. Around 1924, the Atwater Kent company was making the first wooden box radio sets. Milton was a straight-A student at Arsenal Technical High School, and was friends with Dale Chastain. “[Dad and Dale] were both in electric shop class at Tech and in those days everybody was building crystal sets and one-tube radios and trying to pull in Philadelphia or maybe Cincinnati stations at that time,” recalls Don Albershardt, Milton’s son. Milton graduated from Tech in 1926 and was accepted to Purdue University. That summer Milton’s plans changed as family circumstances required him to stay home to start working. Milton and his friend Dale decided to open a store to sell and repair the new radios that were becoming all the rage. They picked 652 E. 52nd Street. They called it AC Radio Electric Shop, for their last names Albershardt and Chastain. Editor’s note: Some people thought AC Radio was named for Alternating Current. Others thought the C was for the building the shop was in for many years at 5207 College Avenue (where Edward Jones is today) - The Clark Building. Some 1928 Atwater Kent radios are seen in the window of the new shop. Radios in this era were operated on batteries, as most home were not yet wired with electricity. The radio catalog listed the required batteries for one model - One 2-volt “A” batteries (an acid-filled, car battery type), three 45-volt “B” batteries, and one 7 1/2-volt “C” battery. photo courtesy of Don Albershardt

ACR Appliances - the story of a corner: part one By Alan Hague Background: In 2008 through 2019 I conducted a series of interviews with Don Albershardt. Don ran ACR Appliances at 5215 College Avenue from the 1960s into the 1990s His dad, Milton, started with a small radio shop on 52nd Street around 1927/28. I will try to tell the story of this store and also of the surrounding businesses at that corner in the coming installments. It is an interesting story.

Milton Albershardt was born to parents August and Elgie Albershardt in August of 1907. August was a Veterinary Doctor in Fountain Square. He and Elgie lived in a large, three-story house with spindle-work at 1906 Prospect Street. August’s veterinary office was at 1108 Prospect Street, right across the street from the Fountain Square fountain. During his high school years at Arsenal Technical High School, 1923-1926, Milton was building radios in the waiting room of his dad’s office. These were very early days for radio. Vacuum tubes and loudspeakers were just being developed at the time. Crystal radios were available for tinkerers. They used a rock crystal embedded in a base, and a “cat whisker” wire on a twistable lever to

I am an old-fashioned kinda guy. My grandfather was old-fashioned (and he was 80 years older than me). Being heavily influenced by him, you can say that I am a throwback. I spend a lot of time lamenting what once was. The two poems below represent an effort to bridge the past with the present:

changing re-arranging drawing from the past traditions updated a new die is cast yesterday is over today is fading fast solutions are needed that will forever last

Remembering Dismembering Reflections from way back when times were better to the letter and to the nth degree Perhaps drawing from our personal histories and bringing together what we remember will make us a little more free

Clue: G equals U

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 learn another, more complex, two-step, way to solve. Trying to place a 3 in the lower right corner section on the medium puzzle. We see that the 3 in the middle section of the top row would eliminate the 2 spaces above the 8 in the middle section of the bottom row [red]. This leaves just 2 places for the eventual 3 in this section, to the left or the right of the 8 [green]. Either spot would eliminate the bottom 3 spaces in the right section of the bottom row. the 3 in the left section of the bottom row eliminates the spaces on both sides of the 5. The 3 in the right section of the middle row eliminates the 3 spaces along the left edge of the section. This leaves only one place for a 3, directly to the left of the 8. This complicated technique can come in handy.

Dust It or Drink It The only spring cleaning I like to do is that of my wines. I am a wine drinker, not a collector, so during the year I enjoy more than I store. Every now and then I DO set a bottle or two back to “age”, hoping that more time will make the wine inside softer, smoother and richer. Not all red wine grapes age well and much of that success depends on where and how they are produced and stored. Cabernet Sauvignon, Tempranillo and Nebbiolo based wines can get less “tannic” or “tight” with time as can some bottles of Syrah, Merlot and Pinot Noir. Most Vintners release wine within two years of production so when it hits the store shelves it’s ready to drink. I appreciate both wine and art. Lucky me to find a bottle that showcases both during my recent spring cleaning spree. Cenyth is a Sonoma County, California wine venture curated by the daughters of two talented wine makers. Helene Seillan learned to make wine in the vineyards of France under the guidance of her father, Pierre. Julia Jackson’s father was the late great Jess Jackson of KendallJackson and Jackson Family Estates. Helene makes the wine. Julia creates the label using swaths of color inspired by the Sonoma county landscape: blue for the Pacific Ocean, yellow for the mustard flowers, gray for the fog and green for the vineyards. (That dribble of red on the label in the photograph is the wine itself from my sloppy pour.) The 2010 Cenyth is a Bordeaux style blend of Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon. It’s rich and full bodied with a hint of that distinct Bordeaux “barnyard” on the nose plus inviting aromas and flavors of plum, blueberry, licorice, maraschino cherry and cola. Limited production makes Cenyth wines pricey and hard to find but a delicious reward for spring cleaning or anytime drinking.

Right in my Own B a c k y a r d by Brandt Carter Broad Ripple Pride Winter grime, trash, pollutants, Red Line construction, litter, Village clutter! The seasons have changed and it’s time to Spring Clean. This is my rant about Broad Ripple pride! Everyone is the area — residents, business people, and visitors reading this column should desire to care for and tend to our thriving community. Picking up litter, and never even making litter, is a huge step towards displaying a tidy, vibrant community. I know we will have issues with the Red Line construction adding to dust, dirt, and confusion, so let’s all take a step towards working harder at community cleanliness this year. You can make a difference. One of the most interesting projects is a take-off on the White River yearly river bank clean-up event (www. Find an unsightly location and take a photo of the mess. Bring bags and gloves and spend an hour or two cleaning it up. Take another photo. Post your civic good works on Facebook or Instagram! Share it on the Broad Ripple Village Association Facebook page. You will be appreciated. You can also round up your group (Boy Scouts, church, baseball team, dance, dinner club) and make it an event to tidy up a corner of Broad Ripple. When done, celebrate at Brics or a favorite watering hole. For residents in the area, clean up and fix up yards and alleys. If you see an eyesore, report it. Hopefully you may feel the urge to help a neighbor that can’t do the physical labor. Good neighbors make good neighborhoods. Unstick a drainage sewer, pick up trash, mow an extra lawn, gift a pretty flower planter. There are so many things neighbors can do to shoulder the entire block’s image to all who walk or drive down Broad Ripple streets. For businesses, you have opportunities to participate. Without Linda at Marigold’s, Broad Ripple would not have the meander garden along the trail leading to the Art Center. This is an great example of one person making a difference. Keep your sidewalks and yards clean and in good repair. Be sure the rear of your establishments are kept clean of trash and garbage. Rats are encouraged enough by the water of the canal and the river that humans don’t need to tempt them even more with waste. Make it a task of an employee to keep your grounds clean. Every business owner should take time to approach their business from the front and the rear at different times of the day to see what your customers see. Making a good impression starts at street side! For guests in Broad Ripple, we hope you enjoy your visit! Please don’t empty your cigarettes on parking lots. Dispose of cans and cups in containers. Ask shop owners to throw away trash you may have acquired during your visit. Leave the Village clean for others to enjoy. Make a special effort to keep the Trail clean and beautiful for all. This also applies to all areas of White River and the canal. Some litter never deteriorates and can be found years later, washing up on the banks. Also graffiti is not welcomed. Use your artistic tagging on canvases or board, not on businesses. This is truly a finger wagging column. Pick it up, dispose of things correctly, make beauty not ugliness. We all are responsible and if you see something like a bottle or trash, make it a point to clean it up! P.S. An ongoing bad habit of trashing out the environment is dumping wrong items at the Broad Ripple Park Recycling bins. Don’t dump! We don’t want to lose this important service at the park.
