Village Montessori School Fall Market By Mario Morone Village Montessori School invites the community to their Fall Market at 6535 Ferguson Street on Friday, September 27th from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. Food and drinks will be available. The children will sell their “schoolmade” foods and crafts, salsa from the school garden, bath bombs and greeting cards. Mr. Daniel (Daniel Paquette) will provide the musical entertainment. There will also be crafts, games and glitter tattoos. New director and lead teacher Maria Leeman, said, “It is my life mission to be an encouraging, compassionate and devoted Montessori teacher. I believe that Dr. Montessori’s educational philosophy - having teachers co-learning with children to encourage and feed children’s natural desire to learn - embodies a true partnership between teacher and student that enables learning through trust and respect.” Emily Watson shared a personal story about her son who attends there. “Five years ago, I visited half-a-dozen preschools before deciding that Village Montessori School was where I desperately wanted our three-year-old to learn. It was just across the White River from our house; for a year we walked by it almost every day. My son would beg to play at “the chicken school” - in the yard there was a coop for the school’s three hens, a huge sandbox, rope swing and picnic tables where the children ate lunch, even on snowy days. When I first met the teachers, I was almost intimidated by their positive energy and peacefulness they always seem to have infinite time to wait and help the children learn to do things for themselves,” she recalled. “After just a few months, everyone noticed the difference in our son. His grandfather always noted that he was like a pinball, frenetically bouncing from one idea and activity to another - ‘It makes me tired just to watch him.’ This didn’t seem to faze his teachers. He was given the job of collecting eggs from the hen house and he broke several that first week. But soon he learned to walk slowly, to ask a friend to help open the door. He shifted toward a more measured, methodical way of doing things. At home he showed me the right way to wipe crumbs from a kitchen counter and he was adamant that we put all our backpacks and shoes away as soon as we came in the house, no matter how busy or tired we were. One night he spent ten minutes wiping the mug he uses for milk, his only explanation was that ‘this was the future of cleaning.’ Finally satisfied, he pronounced it ‘shiny as a diamond,’ ” she noted. “A lot of schools claim to be Montessori, but Village Montessori truly embodies the

Celebrating 20 years! The 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 to be held on Saturday, September 28, from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Its Midtown location is in the center of Rocky Ripple in Hohlt Park at 840 West 53rd Street. Dhyana Raynor, vice-president of the Rocky Ripple Community Association and festival coordinator, said, “After twenty years we are proud to continue our grass roots tradition. It looks and feels like a neighborhood festival. Like a block party gone wild and wonderful!” According to a recent press release, there is an “artist village” with over 80 artists, featuring an eclectic mix of original art and unique artisan items for sale. Each year brings new talent as well as many favorite repeat vendors. This year Rocky Ripple is honoring artists Dan Axler, Chris and Megan Wright, and Vandra Pentecost Linder, four Rocky Ripple residents who helped conceive and create the first festival, twenty years ago. Included among the 80 plus artists are four who have participated ten years or more and 20 with five or more years as art vendors. Look for red flags or balloons flying from the artist tents. At the music stage, emerging artist and singer-songwriter Emma Richardson kicks off the festival, singing America the Beautiful at 11 a.m. The first band begins at 11:15 a.m. In line-up order are Scott McNew and the Twisted Knobs (Hangout rock), Jim Davis and Friends (Country rock), Moor Dub reggae (Reggae dUb), Rock E Bassoon (Electric rock bassoon band), True North (Folk rock) and DR JAR (Party rock). A creative children’s activity area has become a destination spot for families. “Children at Play” is an area of hands on, self-directed fun, featuring sand play all day long in the volley ball court (new sand is delivered every year). New this year will be chalk drawing on a safe, sectioned portion of 53rd Street. There is also a beanie bag toss in addition to the traditional bean bag toss. The popular art station, bubble bonanza, face painting, hooping, and hair spray color are returning. By the time of the festival, the playground should have a new layer of kid-friendly wood mulch within a new 100% recycled border. Interactive Fun includes AcroYoga (you’ll find them near the stage), Hoopers (a drum circle, djembe drums (bring your own or use one provided by Helger Oompkes), which is free and open for all ages and skills. Judy Hanna and the Midwest BellyDancing Superstars will be dancing throughout the festival crowd in the afternoon. Pop-up yoga in the sand and at the kids’ stage is free for all ages and levels of experience and flexibility. Attendees can interact with performers from Timepiece Theatre Company at the kids’ stage or throughout the festival grounds. Festival organizers encourage people to ride their bicycles to Hohlt Park where Pedal & Park provides safe and secure bicycle parking. Promoting recycling is just one of the many ways the organizers are creating an ecofriendly event in the City. Meridian-Kessler resident Mary Stumpp (“The can lady”), KIB and a group of festival volunteers will attempt to reduce all of the festival’s refuse into only ten garbage bags. The rest will be composted in the community garden or recycled. This year’s food court features La Chinita Poblana, Punch Burger, Byrne’s Pizza, Tandoor & Tikka, LICK ice cream and MooLou frozen treats. Craft beer will be provided by The Broad Ripple Brewpub and wine will also be available The event is made possible by generous sponsorship of local businesses and organizations. The Rocky Ripple Festival especially wants to recognize and thank John Bleakley’s Blue Herron Construction Company, The Broad Ripple Brewpub, The Great Frame Up (N. Delaware and E. 62nd Street stores), and Bowen Construction Company. The festival is produced entirely by volunteers. Volunteers are still needed in many of the festival areas for two to three hour shifts. Please contact volunteer coordinator Rachel Wuthrich at or festival coordinator Dhyana Raynor at for more information about how you can help. All proceeds support the park system of the town of Rocky Ripple. Their Facebook page ( has further details. According to their website (, The first stirrings of an annual Rocky Ripple festival began in 1998 when the town officially obtained the land now known as Hohlt Park. After much legal wrangling, Rocky Ripple had its first official park and townsfolk were anxious to use it. The Community Association decided that a celebration should be held. Because of the large number of musicians that were residents of Rocky Ripple (including local harmonica virtuoso Allen Stratyner), it was agreed that it should be a day of music utilizing local talent. The 20th Annual Rocky Ripple Festival celebrates an eclectic blend of art, food and music for all families and individuals from “A Community within the City.”

ideals of an educational philosophy that prioritizes self-directed learning, creativity, order, consistency, and self-sufficiency. I learned to be a better parent watching the teachers interact with the children - I learned to show my children how to do difficult things and then give them the support and time and space to practice until they could master new skills. I was ecstatic when they opened the school to older two-year-olds and my younger son was able to begin his Village experience a year earlier than I had hoped. He was just barely two-and-a-half but when I picked him up on his very first day, he was already familiar with at least one new routine, busy making himself a snack, putting his dish and banana peel away, wiping up the crumbs from his table. He’s still learning to talk but he’s also taking part in lessons where he identifies and arranges felt models of plants.” Ms. Watson explained. Their website ( mentions: “The overall goal of Village Montessori is to introduce the child to reality and attempt to bring out their very best qualities. We aim to propel our students into a bright and vibrant future by providing a rich curriculum, extensive outdoor experiences and a strong sense of community.” More information is available at: or by calling (317) 257-7477. [Former VMS director Rachel Goodburn was interviewed by the Gazette for Volume 7, (Issue) Number 15 when they opened in August of 2010.] The Village Montessori School’s Fall Market re-introduces the school to the local community, offering parents unique educational opportunities for their children, as Ms. Watson and her son have successfully discovered. New VMS Director Maria Leeman continues Ms. Goodburn’s and Maria Montessori’s scholastic mission in Broad Ripple.

Chapter Twelve

additions and errata Years ago, two astute readers noticed an error in the last installment of the History of Broad Ripple as reprinted from the BRHS booklet. This mistake, stating K. V. Ammerman’s retirement year as 1959 instead of 1949, was in the original printing. The event was long before my time, so I would never have caught it. Vern Mabrey, class of 1950, loaned the Gazette his senior class yearbook. I have reprinted the story of K. V. Ammerman’s retirement.

Sep. 20 - Oct. 3, 2019

Training High School. He retired in September, 1949, after 26 years of service. Dedication exercises for the new unit were held on October 5, 1949, with Principal Murphy formally accepting the building from Mr. Ammerman. Talks were given by representatives of the Board of School Commissioners and by Mr. Virgil Stinebaugh, superintendent of Indianapolis public schools. In the picture below, Mr. Murphy is shown conferring with some of his assistants. Left to right are Mr. Hubert L. Wann, dean of boys; Mr. C. Edgar Stahl, viceprincipal; Principal Murphy; Mr. Harold K. Harding, vice-principal; and Miss Ruth B. Carter, dean of girls.

‘49-50 Brings New Unit and New Principal The school year 1949-1950 was one of growth, change, and development at Broad Ripple. A new 21-room addition to the building was opened. Crowded conditions brought about by the rapid growth of Indianapolis’ far north section made this addition necessary. Total cost of this new east wing was $757,000 plus approximately $60,000 in equipment. Broad Ripple’s addition had to share the spotlight, for along with it came a new principal, Mr. J. Fred Murphy. He is shown at left [right in the Gazette] with Mr. K. V. Ammerman, retired principal, Mr. Murphy has been in the educational field since 1929, and has been on the staff of the city schools for 14 years. Before becoming head man here, Mr. Murphy served as assistant superintendent of Indianapolis public schools and head of the department of counseling. Mr. Ammerman, who made Ripple the institution it is today, preceded Mr. Murphy as principal. In 1923 Mr. Ammerman came to this school from Emmerich Manual

The Tannahill Weavers, the premier Scottish Celtic band, will be performing live in Indianapolis on Saturday, October 5, 2019, at 7:00 p.m., for the first concert of the 2019-20 season at the Indy Folk Series. Born of a session in Paisley, Scotland, and named for the town’s historic weaving industry and local poet laureate Robert Tannahill, the Tannahill Weavers have made an international name for their special brand of Celtic music, blending the beauty of traditional melodies with the power of modern rhythms. As one of the world’s premier traditional Celtic bands, their diverse repertoire spans the centuries with fire-driven instrumentals, topical songs, original ballads and lullabies, and humorous tales of life in Scotland. As they release their 18th recording, Òrach (“Golden” in Gaelic) to celebrate their 50th anniversary, they are firmly established as one of the premier groups on the concert stage. From reflective ballads to foot stomping reels and jigs, the variety and range of the material they perform is matched only by their enthusiasm and lively Celtic spirits. 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.

Pacers Bikeshare Expansion 21 New Stations

Indianapolis Cultural Trail, Inc. announced the opening of the Pacers Bikeshare system expansion at a ribbon cutting event with Mayor Joe Hogsett and other community leaders. The expansion adds 275 new bicycles and 21 new bike share stations in neighborhoods and destinations along the city’s bicycle network including the Monon Trail, making Pacers Bikeshare a more viable mobility and recreation choice for residents. Also announced, a grant from the Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield Foundation provided the final local match needed to expand Pacers Bikeshare. “Anthem is fortunate to have our headquarters located alongside the Indianapolis Cultural Trail, and we’re pleased to be a part of this private-public partnership,” said Robert Hillman, president of Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield. “More bikes mean more options for physical activity, connecting more residents to our city’s diverse neighborhoods, restaurants, local businesses and entertainment amenities.” “This is an exciting day for Indianapolis, as we become an increasingly more mobile and connected city,” said Mayor Hogsett. “The Pacers Bikeshare expansion provides greater bike share access to our citizens specifically along our city’s growing bicycle infrastructure. Pacers Bikeshare, combined with the newly opened Red Line, provide more and better access to affordable mobility options for our residents, improve quality of life and clearly illustrate Indianapolis is an innovative and forward-thinking city.” “Pacers Bikeshare is Indianapolis’ community bike share program and we’re excited to make it free for people to ride for the opening of our expansion,” said Kären Haley, Indianapolis Cultural Trail Inc. executive director. “With almost 50 Pacers Bikeshare stations to get a bike, we are bringing stations and bicycles to more neighborhoods and destinations with this expansion. We are grateful

to the Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield Foundation and Herbert Simon Family Foundation for their generous philanthropic support to bring more bikes to people in our city.” The $1.2M Pacers Bikeshare expansion is funded a Federal Congestion Mitigation and Air Quality grant through the City of Indianapolis Department of Public Works with local match funding provided by the Anthem Foundation and the Herbert Simon Family Foundation. Station locations were selected with significant community input and in coordination with the existing 29 stations. Launched in 2014, Pacers Bikeshare is Indianapolis’ community bikeshare program and is a public private partnership between the City of Indianapolis and the non-profit Indianapolis Cultural Trail, Inc. Bicycles are available at any of the 48 Pacers Bikeshare stations or through the BCycle mobile app. The Pacers Bikeshare EveryBody Rides program offers free community rides for residents wanting to try Pacers Bikeshare and discounted access for residents who qualify.

Herb Society of Central Indiana October meeting

Every October we devote the monthly meeting to “Fall Education”, calling it Fall Ed Night. This is a night we especially welcome guests to come learn about herbs; we always have ‘make and take’ projects as well as lots of delectable refreshments. This year’s event is titled “Unusual Uses for Herbs”. Commonly you see herbs used in teas or vinegars, but there are so many more ways you can use herbs in your kitchen, home, for your health, and for your pets. Ever heard of infusing sugar or salts with herbs? Think about kicking up a dish with a flavored salt or a beverage or dessert with a pinch of a herb infused sugar. Did you know you can make your own flea powder that is safe for your fur babies? Does someone in your home battle with shoe odor? That is effectively remedied with some simple ingredients and powerful, but ordinary, herbs. Do you travel? We will have an “Herb Traveler’s Prevention to Bed Bugs” discussion. We have recipes for lots more too. You’ll go home with things you created with us, plus a ‘to-do’ list a mile long. Just think! You could make a handmade herbal holiday gifts with all the ideas listed on the handouts you’ll go home with. Join us on October 7th and Bring a friend!

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.

Buzzing Around Town with Nora Spitznogle

Hello chrysanthemums! I started the autumn season by purchasing chrysanthemums from Habig Garden Shop (54th and College) last week. Even though the temperature is still in the 90s, my porch is looking very autumnal. I don’t want to rush the season too much, because there is still gobs of great outdoor music.

by C.W. Pruitt II

Marigold turns 30! Marigold, 6512 Cornell Avenue [C5 on map], celebrated 30 years with an in-store party on September 11th. The Marigals below from L to R: Elizabeth Shikany, Katie Katzenberger, Lauren Kreigh, Nora Spitznogle, Linda Shikany, and Nancy Bryan.

Sometimes poetry flows effortlessly and it brings me a lot of joy. At other times I am experiencing inner turbulence which seems to make writing impossible. During these times, poetry may allow me to process my pain and bring to me a mellower state of being. It is then that poetry becomes more than a hobby. Below is a poem about struggling to write poetry:

Purging Personal Poetry there is so much to say so i will make it personal but the harder i try to focus deep within the more it becomes a poem about society (and that seems as bad as me) so i branch out to ultimate divine things (this seems more comforting) thank God for refuge from ugly poetry topics

Clue: H equals W

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, way to solve. Trying to place an 8 in the left section of the middle row on the easy puzzle. A future 8 can only be in the red sections of the center section because the 8 in the middle section of the bottom row eliminates the other spaces. Even though we don’t know into which of these 2 spaces the 8 will go, it will eliminate the 3 green spaces in the left section. Since the 8 in the right section of the middle row eliminates the space to the left of the 5, the only one place for the 8 is to the left of the 7. This complicated, two-step, technique can come in handy.

The Wine Scene

Sep. 20 - Oct. 3, 2019

as seen by The Broad of Ripple (Jill A. Ditmire)

CANVAS QUENCHERS I poured wine at the annual Carmel on Canvas event this past weekend. For two days, plein air artists find interesting landscapes in the downtown Carmel area, and paint pictures of them. The event culminates Saturday afternoon with a reception for the artists, their families and Carmel VIPS. Michigan Artist Shawn Krueger judged the nearly 100 entries and handed out awards. It’s a wonderful collection of talented work and the cash prizes are generous and well earned by the painters. Several Broad Ripple artists garnered awards including Michael Sinon and Mary Ann Davis who took 3rd place in what was a very tough competition. Artists quenched their thirsts with Lola prosecco, Villa Pozzi Moscato, Patron of Saints Chardonnay and Crush red. The Lola is an off dry bubbly best served well chilled. Villa Pozzi Moscato is semi sweet with more of a fresh white grape flavor than sweetness. Patron of Saints from Washington has a screw cap for ease of serving and you will want to keep pouring as the fresh apple, pear, creamy flavors are a delight. Crush red is a bold, dry blend of Napa county grapes - yum. All available locally.

Vol. 16 No. 19

Right in my Own B a c k y a r d by Brandt Carter The Season of Festivals Nature is in full bloom right now. The end of summer unfolds the bounty of the growing season. Trees have gained height, flowers have bloomed and covered bare spots in the landscape, vegetable beds are spent, birds have multiplied and eaten the abundance of yards, fields, and feeders. We, the human inhabitants, have had many daylight hours to watch and observe our yards and nature. So what’s next? Yes, Fall with all the orange, bronze and yellow colors, pumpkins, gourds, bales of straw and best of all the return of festivals during the months of September and October 2019.

September 9/20-9/22 – St. George Festival – Fishers 9/20-9/22 – Fall 4-Wheel Jamboree – Indianapolis 9/21 – Quaker Day Craft & Community Festival – Plainfield 9/21 – Art Squared – Indianapolis 9/21 – Harvest Moon Fall Festival – Bargersville 9/21 – Hopwood’s Big Grape Stomp – Zionsville 9/28 – IndyStar Wine and Food Experience – Indianapolis 9/28 – Franklin Fall Festival – Franklin 9/28 – Noblesville Brewfest and Wine Garden – Noblesville 9/28 – Rock the Clock – Greenwood 9/28 – Avon Community Heritage Festival – Avon 9/28-9/29 – New Earth Festival – Atlanta 9/28-9/29 – International Arts Festival – Carmel October 10/3-10/6 – Riley Festival – Greenfield 10/5 – Potter’s Bridge Fall Festival – Noblesville 10/5 – Woofstock – Noblesville 10/5-10/6 – Indiana Renaissance Faire – Noblesville 10/5-10/6 – Beasley’s Heartland Apple Festival I – Danville 10/11-10/20 – Parke County Covered Bridge Festival – Rockville 10/12 – Monument Circle Art Fair – Indianapolis 10/12 – GermanFest – Indianapolis 10/12-10/13 – Indy Grilled Cheese Festival – Indianapolis 10/26 – Historic Irvington Halloween Festival – Indianapolis November 11/2 – Sun King Invitational – Indianapolis 11/16– Start of Christkindlmarkt German Holiday Market - Carmel It’s time for us to take a cue from the season of change. Nature is getting ready for winter. The birds are packing on weight if they migrate south like all of our hummingbirds. You may see these magnificent flyers as late as October 10. If it is a mild fall, it can even be later. (Hummingbirds migrate as the days become shorter not colder.) Stay-at-home birds are claiming their winter birdfeeding territory; fill up your feeders to welcome them to a plentiful winter home. Squirrels are, yes, “squirreling away” their winter stash of nuts as well as chipmunks. Other animals are bulking up and changing to winter colors and coats. So, join nature and splurge on the harvest of spring and summer. Celebrate autumn and venture out to festivals and outdoor events. Get your fill of mild days and pleasant evenings. Enjoy the stars and full moons. Walk, camp, bike, day trip! Winter is coming and the inside days of our lives will be here sooner than we anticipate!
