By Mario Morone Broad Ripple High School alumni and Flanner Buchanan Owner/CEO Bruce Buchanan recently described his interest in preserving some of his alma mater’s memorabilia. “I have a great deal of interest in local and family history. I believe it’s very important to keep significant things. I fell into this project because I went to a Broad Ripple High School Alumni Association meeting last year for another matter. At that meeting, I mentioned that I had been a professional photographer, so I volunteered to become the photographer of the BRHS archives. I wanted there to be quality pictures that researchers would be able to utilize,” he explained. Buchanan described his early career. “After Indiana University, I went on to work as a photojournalist at three different newspapers and then as a commercial photographer for ten years. I worked as a picture editor at the Times Picayune in New Orleans. I transitioned out of that and became a commercial photographer in Milwaukee. I came back to Indianapolis in the mid-1990s.” “My first trip to see the school’s memorabilia was awe inspiring. Our volunteer team of BRHS Alumni Association members walked into a dance studio in the school and there it was: trophies, paintings, scrapbooks, yearbooks, sports jerseys and more. IPS staff had placed everything in cabinets and on tables. We saw the three state championship banners. Jan Ottolini is a co-chair with me on this project. We, along with Jack Hogan, Curtis Baker, Kerry Yount, Kent Springer and Annabelle Paul organized and started to catalog the items. I set up a photo studio and over eight trips we photographed 1,000 three-dimensional items,” he mentioned. “We know much has been given away or taken over the years. Alumni, when they heard about this effort, started asking us about specific awards or items. There is very little from the music department BRHS Alumni Assn. in the archive, for example. I was told that there were tapes made of the BRHS Golden Singers. We are doing our best to track down specific requests,” Buchanan said. If any Gazette readers or local residents know the whereabouts of significant items, they should contact the BRHSAA through their Facebook page at: or via email at “A policy for the archive has been drafted by the Alumni Association, with the assistance of the Indianapolis Public Library. It needs to be approved by IPS to become official. This will allow us to finish the process of cataloging the items so the inventory will be available for search on-line. Our committee is sorting the collection into three categories: to be kept in a museum, sell, or give away. We hope to sell some of these items to raise money for the archives’ long-term preservation. We will hire an intern to catalog and place items on-line. There are dozens of scrapbooks with newspaper articles and photographs. The Riparian newspaper is there in bound editions. These items need to be scanned, which takes time and money,” he emphasized. “There will be a BRHS Homecoming Alumni event on October 5th at the high

July Land Use committee meeting - one item

Calendar .Sights.Sounds.Places.

By Alan Hague The July public meeting of the Broad Ripple Village Association’s Land Use and Development committee was held on July 23. There were 20 in attendance. There was only one item on the agenda [in bold below]. A. 1426 Broad Ripple Ave (within Broad Ripple Park), Mickey Rodgers regarding rezoning of 2.2 acres from the SU-37 district to the PK-1 district to provide for park uses. Petition #2019-ZON-064 The parcel of land that contains the Broad Ripple Park Family Center is currently zoned SU37. This is zoning for a library use. The rest of the park is zoned PK1. The request is to rezone the SU37 parcel to PK1. The petitioner stated that this should have been done when the library moved out of the park years ago. Apparently no further zoning is needed for the proposed construction of a new family center and medical facility in the park. It was stated that if a subordinate use is built in a city park and that use is in the approved master plan for that park, then no permit changes are required. The committee voted unanimously to support this petition. The Metazoa proposal for 804 Laverock Road is still on hold until further information is obtained. After the meeting there was a discussion of how the BRVA’s Land Use and Development committee operates. These questions were from GACC (Greater Allisonville Community Council) and BRAG (Binford Redevelopment and Growth) to help them in organizing their groups. The next scheduled meeting of the committee is August 27 at 6 pm at Northminster Presbyterian Church, 1660 Kessler Boulevard [KK28 on map]. In related Liquor License News: Xpress Pantry, 6302 College Ave, has applied for a new beer and wine grocery license with a hearing scheduled for September 3 at the City-County Building.

Aug. 9 - Aug. 22, 2019

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

school where we are planning to show and auction some of these items off,” Buchanan noted. There are potential locations where school memorabilia could appear. “It may be possible to incorporate some items into the proposed Broad Ripple River Walk. This is a trail that will run along the river in front of the school. We hope to create a BRHS hall of fame. We might utilize some of the pictures from the archive,” he mentioned. Some of BRHS mementos can currently be seen. “There is now a display case at Flanner Buchanan’s Broad Ripple location that will include some memorabilia as well. Right now there are over 50 years of yearbooks on display. The public is invited to stop in to view the books. If you see something you like, take a picture of it,” says Buchanan. He recalled some memories of his days at BRHS. “I was a writer for the school newspaper called The Riparian where I worked with many editors that later went on to news careers. Gretchen Letterman, (David’s sister) was a classmate of mine who worked on the yearbook staff. We worked together at Indiana University on that school’s yearbook.” “I was a student at BRHS at the beginning of forced busing and integration, so I got an incredible social education outside of the classroom. I saw the transition and the turbulence that came with that dramatic change. I had a great high school experience with good teachers as mentors. I played on the freshman and junior varsity basketball teams. I was a member of the 1972 State Champion tennis team. BRHS was a real powerhouse in tennis from the late 1960s through 1973,” he said. Buchanan also mentioned that The Purdue Polytechnic School is opening this fall across the street from Flanner Buchanan on Indianola. “As BRHS died, a new school is being born two blocks away. Our parking lot will be a safe dropoff-spot for students. We’re right in the middle of things, so we’re going to be impacted by both the old and the new. It’s an exciting time.” He concluded, “BRHS alums are combining their efforts to preserve their schools’ memorabilia for future generations. It will not only tell a history of their high school’s accomplishments but also create a living legacy for these archived items to educate residents of all ages in Broad Ripple and beyond. The 132-year history of BRHS reflects the many changes our city has seen. I am so pleased that the archive is getting done.”

REAL ESTATE Flanner Buchanan announces move to new corporate offices

Flanner Buchanan announced today that it plans to move its corporate office and operations to 2020 Montcalm Street, in Indianapolis’ Riverside neighborhood. The facility is a 32,000 square foot, 80-year-old structure that was purchased last September. Occupancy of the funeral operations is anticipated in mid-July and the corporate office later this summer. “We are very excited about our new location which is centrally located, easily accessible to the interstate and has abundant parking,” said Bruce Buchanan, the company’s fourth-generation owner. “The new facility, with a staff of 30, will allow us to bring all our diversified operations under one roof.” The new location is a merger of Flanner Buchanan’s corporate office, 600 E. Ohio Street, and its Care Center now located at 635 E. Market Street. Buchanan Group, a management services firm, is a “sister company” that also will be located in the building. Buchanan Group is a master national distributor of caskets and owns a granite memorial facility located in Scottsburg, Indiana. “We have worked hard to control two of the biggest expenses in our business - caskets and granite memorials,” said Buchanan. “Owning the supply chain for these items has been a benefit we are passing along to our customers.” The state-of-the-art building will also serve as a funeral and cremation center with multiple event rooms for services and community events. The facility is just north of the evolving 16 Tech Park. The classic mid-century architectural features of the building were retained. Additionally, Flanner Buchanan is collaborating with Flanner House to place a green house on the northern end of the property. This facility will create jobs in the neighborhood as well as expand neighborhood access to fresh healthy foods. Frank W. Flanner, the founder of Flanner Buchanan, was the founder of Flanner House in 1898. Buchanan continued, “Having a presence on Montcalm Street will help revitalize the neighborhood, which has long been stagnate. Serving our neighbors is part of our culture, part of our history and core to our mission.” A public Open House is planned for Thursday, October 3 from 4:00 – 7:00 p.m.

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 (class of 1896), uncle (class of 1951), father (class of 1947), sister (class of 1970) and son all graduated from BRHS; I am class of 1978. My son John is BRHS class of 2006, was Assistant Band Director at BRHS, and now is band director at Crispus Attucks High School. As the president 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.

Music at the Indiana State Fair Pioneer Village.

Indiana State Fair Pioneer Village

This is my happiest time of the year – we’re into Indiana State Fair season. Even though I’m busy with work and going to the Fair each day and writing about it, I’m energized. I’m sure all of the walking and fresh air are part of the equation also – I hope you get a chance to spend some time at the Fair poking around. My favorite place in the Fairgrounds is Pioneer Village. Not only are there demonstrations and displays and people preserving history – there is a whole lot of fine music. You’ll find music on front porch and stage of the Pioneer Village Building and films, music, and a musical titled, “Hoosier Heroes and Indiana Songs” on the Opry House stage. The musical will have an open dress rehearsal in the Opry House on Thursday, August 8 from 7 pm, and will be performed on Friday, August 9 at 7 pm, Saturday, August 10 at 3 pm and 7 pm, and Sunday, August 11 at 3 pm. From now through Friday, August 16, films recorded of the tribute shows to WLS National Barn Dance, salutes to Indiana Farm wives, and past State Fair musical performances will be shown. Also in the Opry House on Sunday, August 11 from noon – 2 pm the Divin’ Ducks will take the stage with a celebration of blues man, Yank Rachell’s song book. There are plenty of Broad Ripple based musicians playing on the Pioneer Village stage. Sunday, August 11, 4 – 6 pm: Andra Faye and Scott Ballantine (blues/soul/ traditional folk) Tuesday and Wednesday, August 13 & 14, noon – 3 pm: Mac Bellner is back for the State Fair. You know her from her Hogeye Navvy days playing at the Aristocrat. You can find her on the front porch playing traditional American songs. Tuesday, August 13, 6 – 8 pm: New Augusta Acoustic Duo will be playing bluegrass. Thursday, August 15, 6 – 8 pm: Proctor & Strunk will be playing Americana tunes. I always know that whatever music I hear in Pioneer Village is sure to be great, thanks to Bill Bailey for booking and managing the music. I hope to see you all at the Fair – I’ll be the one grinning wildly!

-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.

Reflections on Yedda

Random Ripplings

Fur Bee is gone from 6552 Cornell Avenue [C5 on map]. The dog groomer moved to 1750 E. 86th Street in Nora.


In the last issue we had a submitted caption with an error. The caption should have listed Todd Young.

Yedda Bradford was my only friend for a few years in the Poplar Heights neighborhood of Grayson, Kentucky. She was three years older than me. She was bigger than me. She was stronger than me. She could throw the baseball faster and hit it farther than me. In Little League Yedda played all nine positions. And she was a fierce competitor. My father still enjoys telling stories of girls who could clobber the boys in these contests (especially when they were playing catcher). When I was in third grade, Mom and Dad bought us a basketball goal that was mounted against the house. Yedda would mercilessly back me into the post and score at will. If I was lucky enough to win our last game before her homework time, she would insist on playing again. Because beating Yedda required so much energy, she always won the next game. So Yedda left the winner. And I remained dribbling and shooting, trying to figure out how to beat her the next day. When I was in fourth grade Yedda’s family moved to another part of the sprawling hamlet of Grayson. It was pretty devastating to lose my best and only friend. Plus, deep down, I felt like my best basketball was ahead of me. Then, four years later, I got a lucky break. My brother Jim was going to visit Steven Bradford (Yedda’s brother). I asked to tag along with Jim, as I often did, to bask in the glow of my little brother’s superior social skills. When we arrived we realized that we had stepped into some kind of Appalachian paradise. They had go-carts with an oval track. And they had a beautiful basketball court. I sensed my opportunity. I went into the Bradford house and said hi to Yedda, who was wearing a dress. I told her to change, so we could play some one-onone. She said she didn’t play basketball anymore. I insisted. I was now much taller than Yedda. So I backed her into the post (like she used to do to me). I was blocking her shots like crazy. I defeated Yedda soundly. When we had finished playing, I felt great. But Yedda didn’t seem to care at all. She didn’t even ask for a second game. I haven’t seen Yedda in over 20 years. I wonder if maybe she now has a little girl with a punishing inside game like her mother. CW Pruitt II has been on the poetry scene in Broad Ripple for years. Email your questions/comments to

Clue: M equals Y

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. Lets try to place a 6 in the middle section on the top row in the easy puzzle containing 2-3-4-9. The 6 in the left section of the top row eliminates the space between the 2-3. The 6 in the right section of the top row eliminates the spaces to the right of the 9. The 6 in the middle section of the bottom row eliminates the spaces above the 2. The only place left is to the left of the 4. You have learned one technique used to solve Sudoku puzzles. There are many more.

Indiana State Fair: Winners, Slushees and Wine to GO The Indiana State Fair held its first “Toast of the Fair” Wine and Spirits competition this year. I judged the wine part. 24 of us spent the day sniffing, sipping and spitting dozens of hybrid, native American and fruit wines made in Indiana. One of the two reds pictured won Best of Class: Country Heritage Petite Syrah. The delicious dry red offers black fruit flavors and an earthy, spicy finish. Country Heritage Winery is located near Fort Wayne and just opened a new tasting/events space in the former Chateau Thomas facility in Plainfield. Winners are listed on the State Fair website and many are available to drink at this year’s fair. The newest place to do so is the outdoor Wine Garden next to the Ag/ Hort Building. I stopped by during opening weekend and talked with Monica Urick of Urick Concessions, whose company manages the adult beverage concessions at the fairgrounds. The Wine Garden beverage menu includes 10 Indiana wines by the glass, including three styles of the state’s grape– Traminette. Other wine drinks available: Huber Winery Blackberry Sangria and Easley Reggae Red and Margarita Wine Slushees. The menu also includes Bear Wallow Gnaw Bone Straight Bourbon Whiskey. The Nashville, Indiana distillery took top honors in the Spirits Competition. Wines are $9 a glass, whiskey $10. Hours: 10 am to 9 pm. Indiana wines and craft beers are available once again inside of the Grand Hall and at the new Bow Tie Barn Tent, located near the Free Stage. Saddle up to the horse shoe-shaped bar for a beer or whiskey slushee. NEW this year, you don’t have to sit and sip your adult beverage where you buy it, you can take it with you. Please drink responsibly as you toast Indiana agriculture on your State Fair wine walkabout.

The Life of The Party Adventures in Entertaining

by Elizabeth Morse

Stew and Casseroles So one of my readers is due an apology! Months ago I promised, at her request, to include more casseroles in this column AND to email her several of my favorites. I failed. I lost her email address and even after scouring my sent mail and trash files, I came up empty-handed. Faithful reader, today’s issue is just for you. Since many of us are in the throes of getting kids back to school and into new fall routines, I’m offering you three easy and delicious meals that you can prep in advance and enjoy at the end of your long day. One slow-cooked stew and two casseroles. Simple to prepare, delicious and cost-effective. Enjoy them all!

19 Aug. 9 - Aug. 22, 2019

Long Day Beef Stew (Serves 4)

1 pound beef stew meat, cubed 1/3 c flour 1 teaspoon black pepper ¼ cup olive oil 1 cup dry red wine (I like Cabernet or Pinot Noir) 4 cups of water or beef broth 1 large onion, chopped 3 potatoes, peeled and cut into 1” cubes 6 carrots, peeled and chopped 2 bay leaves 1 t celery salt 1 t salt Combine beef with flour, salt, celery salt and pepper in a bowl. Toss to coat. In a Dutch oven, heat olive oil over medium-high heat and brown beef. Add wine, taking a minute to scrape the pan to loosen the yummy browned pieces of beef. Add broth or water, and bring to a boil. Add bay leaves, reduce heat and simmer for 2 hours. Add onions, carrots and simmer for 15 minutes. Add potatoes and continue simmering for 25 more minutes. Serve hot with crusty bread for dipping.

Chicken and Wild Rice Casserole (Serves 6)

4 chicken breasts, cooked and cubed 1 chopped yellow onion 6 cups of wild rice, cooked 8-10 ounces of canned mushrooms, drained 1 small package of frozen spinach, thawed and drained ½ red bell pepper, seeded and minced ¼ cup butter ¼ cup flour 1 t thyme 1/3 cup slivered almonds 2 cups chicken broth 1 cup heavy cream (or half-and-half) Salt and pepper, to taste In a large sauce pan, sauté onions and thyme in butter until the onions are translucent. Add flour and continue stirring over medium heat for 2 minutes. Slowly stir in broth and bring to a boil. Boil (continuing to stir) for 2 more minutes. Stir in cream. Add remaining ingredients, except almonds. Stir to combine and heat through. Add salt and pepper, to taste. Transfer to a 9 by 13 baking dish (buttered) and top with slivered almonds. Bake at 350° for half an hour. I serve this with a crisp, green salad dressed with oil and vinegar.

Baked Bean Casserole (Vegetarian) 2 cans of black beans, drained and rinsed 1 can kidney beans, drained and rinsed 1 cup marinara sauce 1 cup barbecue sauce ( I like Sweet Baby Ray’s ) 1 large onion, chopped 1 green pepper, seeded and chopped 1 t garlic powder ½ t crushed red pepper flakes Combine all ingredients in a bowl and stir to combine. Pour into a medium-sized casserole and bake at 375° for one hour. This is a hearty, meat-free option and is perfect served over cornbread.
