Last installment of cultural tour By Heidi Huff

heidi@broadripplegazette.com After what’s felt like months of sightseeing downtown, it’s finally supper time. On the last leg of our Downtown Media Tour we went to 14 West for dinner and then to Mass Ave for the First Friday Gallery Tour. 14 West is in walking distance from the Hyatt, where we were staying for 14 West Restaurant the night. All that 14 W. Washington St touring made this girl First Friday Gallery Tour hungry! For starters we orArt Bank dered the 14 West 811 Massachusetts Ave Crab Cakes with apple jicama salad and tomato butter sauce, Garlic Grilled Brie with mushrooms, walnuts, and an apricot glaze with crostini, and Tempura Fried Calamari with an apricot mustard. I also started with a Green Tea Martini. Everyone was pleased with the selections as we passed them around the table to try, but the martini was all mine. After the Green Tea Martini I felt like continuing my Asian cuisine theme. For my entree I ordered Wasabi Crusted Tuna with sweet potato fries and a carrot ginger puree. Not only was it delicious but beautiful too. The tuna was perfectly seared and the sweet potato fries were served shoestring style and artfully layered. For their entrees, my dining companions chose items like the Kobe Mac ‘n’ Cheese with Australian Kobe Beef, wild mushroom mac ‘n’ cheese, and butter poached lobster. (Certainly not your momma’s mac ‘n’ cheese, sadly not vegetarian friendly.) Others had the Lobster Ravioli with mascarpone and tomato confit sauce, the Herb Rubbed Salmon with tomato butter sauce, and the Filet of Beef with whipped potatoes and fried onions. Last but not least was dessert. I chose the Carrot Cake with Gran-Marnier cream cheese icing and walnuts, accompanied by a cup of Sumatra coffee from Hubbard and Cravens. The other eaters ordered Pretzel Bread Pudding with maple syrup

First Friday at the Art Bank on Mass Ave.

and cinnamon ice cream, New York Style Cheesecake with fruit compote, and Chocolate Mousse Cake with marinated pound cake and marshmallow fluff. For our after dinner stroll we headed to Mass Ave for the IDADA First Friday Gallery Tour. IDADA, the Indianapolis Downtown Artists and Dealers Association, is a non-profit membership based organization of artists, galleries, and art businesses downtown. Their focus is to promote artists with the highest of professional standards and to encourage community support of the visual arts. As part of the tour we stopped in to the recently repurposed Art Bank on the east end of Mass Ave. This building used to house a financial bank, hence the name. It now holds valuables of a different sort. Artists rent the space by the foot to display their work. Many of the original interior areas still remain. Even the coat closet, teller windows, and bank vault accommodate the art. After the art I was looking forward to staying up all night at the Hyatt hotel. But after traveling from the Wholesale District to Fountain Square to Mass Ave and back again it was all I could do to put myself to bed. And with the end of my day comes the end of this feature about our downtown media tour organized by Indianapolis Downtown Inc. Keep an eye out for other cultural district features to follow.

Indianapolis Art Center’s New Sound System Donated by Klipsch Audio Technologies is One of the First in the World By Sean Kaellner

sean@broadripplegazette.com On July 8th at 5pm, the Indianapolis Art Center became home to one of the most state-of-the-art sound systems in the world. The Klipsch brand of cinema sound systems has been globally accepted as one of the highest quality sound systems available. Seen, or rather heard in the Dinosphere at The Children’s Museum, downtown at the NCAA Hall of Champions, or even close to home within the Jazz Kitchen on 54th and College, Klipsch has now set its sights on Broad Ripple. The 220-seat Frank M. Basile Auditorium within the Art Center will be showcasing a Chinese film festival of four renowned films, all of which are accompanied by the new exhibit from Shandong College of Arts just outside of the auditorium’s doors. In its sixty-second year of business, Klipsch brand loudspeakers will be heard at the 2008 Summer Olympics in Beijing. But you can get Olympic-sized sound here in Broad Ripple, and Klipsch never fails to deliver. As a leading center for artistic and creative expression, Klipsch hopes to give the Art Center a greater and more pristine form of sound by establishing itself within its own auditorium’s walls, bringing the possibility of future film festivals and entertainment to Broad Ripple. The Frank M. Basile Auditorium has been a center for many of the Art Center’s showcases, but with the installation of the new cinema surround-sound speakers, many art lovers might become film lovers as well. If you want to check out this new addition to the Broad Ripple cultural scene, the Art Center will be presenting Farewell My Concubine on July 22nd, Still Life on August 5th, and Be There or be Square on August 19th, all of which will be shown at 6:30pm. Be sure to visit the Art Center sometime between now and August 23rd so as to not miss the wonderful exhibit from Shandong College of Arts, and after admiring the art, kick back and enjoy the new Klipsch sound in the auditorium.

Right in my Own B a c k y a r d by Brandt Carter

Random Ripplings

First Day of School

When I was starting back to school, the date was ALWAYS right after Labor Day. Our school year took the farm cycle into account. Kids had to help in the fields and couldn’t be spared until September. Yes, we had daylight savings time when I was young, so some things that favor Indiana children are shared across the generations. Starting back to school was a momentous event in my youthful years. Mom would take us to L.S. Ayres for a few new dresses, although I usually got my sister’s hand-me downs (jeans would never have been appropriate dress). We would go to Stout’s for our one pair of school shoes and enjoy the sliding basket hanging from the ceiling that whisked away the chosen shoes and cash to pay for them. In a matter of minutes a shoe box wrapped and ready for the first day of school came flying back in the aerial basket. The parrot at Stout’s was a highlight of the trip. How vividly I also recall the sales clerk measuring my foot in preparation for trying on sensible school shoes. Tennis shoes were not standard footwear unless for physical education. Saddle oxfords or loafers with a shiny penny in the top slot were favorite choices. High school girls (my sister) got to choose flats, Capezios being the coveted brand. We would go shopping for our school list of supplies. I don’t remember having to buy many. Book rental and milk money were the only fees required. We didn’t eat lunch at school, but once a day the teacher would hand out milk and graham crackers or saltines for a mid-morning snack. We walked to school in the morning, back home at lunch, returned for the afternoon, and home again in the evening. Our trip happened to be a mile each way. Walking to school was a way we learned about our community. We walked past the Greenbergers, McClains, Sinclairs, Pearsons, Holtons, Westons, and finally our grandparents house everyday – four times a day – before passing and window shopping at the A&P, Danner’s Five & Dime, the Mandarin Inn, and Eaton’s restaurant. Some school days, Mom gave us 50 cents to eat lunch at the Chinese restaurant or the Toddle House. Sometimes we splurged on a sundae at the corner drugstore at the end of the day. Life was simpler then. We lived in a double, had a party line (two families shared one phone line with individualized rings), drove one family car (an Oldsmobile), went to church every Sunday, and were expected to do well in school. I can always remember my father saying, “Get as much education as you can. It is one of the only things that can’t be taken away.” I wish all the families of Indianapolis prized education. If they did, our public schools would be a place of joy, learning, achievement – and the first day of school would be greatly anticipated.

Howling at the Moon by Susan Smith It always gives me pleasure to hear great pet rescue stories. Two issues ago I told you how The American Red Cross of Greater Indianapolis sheltered, for the first time, pets that were victims of the May 31st Eastside tornado. You might also remember Tony Furdock and his dog Cozmo. Cozmo is a past featured “Gazette Pet” who rides in the side car of Tony’s motorcycle. They went down to help repair the Martinsville animal shelter that was badly damaged by the floods. More on that story to follow. Many of you have rescue animals from Hurricane Katrina and, many like me, own pet therapy dogs. This is a pet story posted by Fran Jurga, that I would like to share. It will make you smile. Meet Molly. She’s a gray speckled pony who was abandoned by her owners when Katrina hit southern Louisiana . She spent weeks on her own before finally being rescued and taken to a farm where abandoned animals were stockpiled. While there, she was attacked by a dog and almost died. Her gnawed right front leg became infected and her vet went to LSU for help. But LSU was overwhelmed, and this pony was a welfare case. You know how that goes. But, after surgeon Rustin Moore met Molly, he changed his mind. He saw how the pony was careful to lie down on different sides so she didn’t seem to get sores, and how she allowed people to handle her. She protected her injured leg. She constantly shifted her weight, and didn’t overload her good leg. She was a smart pony with a serious survival ethic. Moore agreed to remove her leg below the knee and a temporary artificial limb was built. Molly walked out of the clinic and her story really begins there. “This was the right horse and the right owner,” Moore insists. “Molly happened to be a one-in-a-million patient. She’s tough as nails, but sweet, and she was willing to cope with pain. She made it obvious she understood (that) she was in trouble.” The other important factor, according to Moore , is having a truly committed and compliant owner who is dedicated to providing the daily care required over the lifetime of the horse. Molly’s story turns into a parable for life in post-Katrina Louisiana . The little pony gained weight, her mane felt a comb. A human prosthesis designer built her a leg. “The prosthetic has given Molly a whole new life,” Allison Barca DVM, Molly’s regular vet, reports. “And she asks for it! She will put her little limb out, and come to you and let you know that she wants you to put it on. Sometimes she wants you to take it off too.” Most important of all, Molly has a job now. Kay, the rescue farm owner, started taking Molly to shelters, hospitals, nursing homes, rehabilitation centers. Anywhere she thought that people needed hope. Wherever Molly went, she showed people her pluck. She inspired people. And she This is Molly’s most recent prosthesis which has a smiley face embossed in it. had a good time doing it Wherever Molly goes, she leaves a smi“It’s obvious to me that Molly had a ley hoof print behind! bigger role to play in life,” Moore said, “She survived the hurricane, she survived a horrible injury, and now she is giving hope to others.” “She’s not back to normal,” Barca concluded. “She’s going to be better. To me, she could be a symbol for New Orleans itself.” Pets make you smile. Susan Smith is a life-long area resident and is the owner of City Dogs Grocery located at 49th and College.

529-4046 call 6AM to 9PM 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 3 in the right section in the top row, which already contains a 2-5-7-8. The 3 in the middle section of the top row eliminates the top three spaces. The 3 in the left section of the top row eliminates the space between the 5-2. The only place left is to the right of the 8-7. You have learned one technique needed to solve Sudoku puzzles. There are many more.

I was happy to finally hear April Combs and Michael Mann. April’s music and voice was everything I’d heard–lush and beautiful, soft and powerful all at the same time. It was a little disconcerting to hear Highway to Hell bleeding though the windows from the band playing outdoors. Her songs are emotional and smart. Victor Hugo kicks AC/DC’s ass any day.

Karen Irwin and Scott Ballantine play almost every Sunday (except the first Sunday of the month) evening. It is a lovely way to ease in to the new week.

Brandon Whyde at the Upper Room.

I loved hearing April and Michael cover Dale Lawrence’s Katie. Especially since I was sitting right next to him. Christian Taylor, from the band America Owns the Moon played next. His solo set included lots of originals and a Neil Young cover or two. Christian runs an open stage every Tuesday at the Red Eye Café downtown. Brandon Whyde has a powerful enough voice to drown out the bar chatter. As April Combs said, “His voice is made for an arena. I predict he will be famous some day.” I think she’s right. He’s in some pretty heady company already. He co-wrote a song with Josh Kelly. Brandon had the crowd paying attention, dancing and requesting songs. It was a pleasure to hear him.

July 18 - July 31, 2008

didn’t take enough. But since this is an article about food and cooking I will relate some of the culinary adventures I went on. I was presented with a wonderful array of foods while on the train and in the many fine hotels we stayed in. I was rarely without several choices. The meals on the train were for the most part good. The desserts were above and beyond my expectations and the breakfasts were commendable. In one of the hotel restaurants I had the best salmon ever. Evidently the freshness of visiting the areas where it is caught really does make a difference. I enjoyed several meals of salmon. Interestingly, of all the hotels where we were served a meal, the most memorable was the small motel out in the middle of nowhere. The Port Hardy Airport Inn is a very humble and basic place to spend the night. The meal is worthy of mention, though. I had halibut for the first time. It was good. In fact it was very good. Not being a seafood lover, I took quite a gamble that evening and it paid off nicely. I asked the waitress how it was prepared. A simple seasoned flour coating on the freshest of fish and placed in a skillet to brown was all there was to it. I will be doing some experimenting with these ingredients and find a recipe and cooking method to share in an upcoming article. One dessert was a new one to me and was particularly good, ‘Nanaimo Bars’. I have started my research of the origin and recipe and will be sharing with you this wonderful new delight, again in a future article. Other articles I am working on include scones, cooking with flowers, a new soup recipe and some appetizers and dips. For now here is a recipe fit for these hot summer days.

Life’s Ripples

Green Broad Ripple

July 18 - July 31, 2008

One morning I came to the office and discovered a night hawk in the parking lot. It was not a normal occurrence, nor was the bird acting in a normal manner. After many phone calls and interesting conversations, the problem was addressed in a positive way. This incident could be thought of as a once in a lifetime experience. I believe that cliche’ “once in a lifetime” is far truer than we realize. The reality is that everything is a once in a lifetime experience. Every moment in time is an unrepeatable moment because that particular moment can never happen again. We may repeat the event, but never in exactly the same way. Once the moment disappears into the past, it can never be recaptured. We are fully people of the moment. The past is over, and the next second is the future. Amazing that God gave us the choice in how we spend these moments in time. Sometimes we rejoice in the moments, sometimes we’re sad in the moments, and then there are those moments that we screw up so bad that we vow never to repeat them again. God is a God of the moments. He is there in each moment, each joy, each sadness, and each mistake. God is a God of new starts, and all we have to do is turn to Him and He is there in the moment forgiving, loving, and renewing. The next moment is new and fresh, go out and make it a once in a lifetime experience.

The Atlas Supermarket closed permanently on May 11, 2002, 2-1/2 years after the passing of Sid Maurer. It was only last January that Sunflower Market suddenly closed its doors. Have you noticed that our Kroger has undergone an extreme makeover and that there is a fledgling new food enterprise, Locally Grown Gardens, at the intersection of 54th Street and the Monon Trail? Have you visited the Broad Ripple Farmer’s Market lately? And then, how about the recent grand opening of the long awaited “Fresh Market?” These, along with the always reliable but uneventful Marsh and a host of specialty shops like The Breadsmith, Johnny’s Market, the Village Pantry, and the snack section of the CVS drugstore represent the retail food culture of our community. Is there anything to learn from asking how Green it might be? Let’s look at the Atlas site. In the year 2000, Green was still only a whisper, yet Atlas exhibited many very Green elements. Words like frugality, sufficiency, conservation, and naturalness represent concepts that are at the core of the Green way and the Atlas way as well, as I recall. These traits came to Atlas through Sid’s dedication which infused his own personal qualities into the enterprise he created and dearly loved. Sid was Atlas. A fundamental premise I learned in my studies in sustainable design is that the Greenest building is one you do not need to build. The environmental impact of demolition and new construction cannot be compensated for by the new building’s energy efficiency. Similarly, trading in your perfectly serviceable automobile for a Tim has been a United Methodist Pastor since 1973 and has been at Broad new one with better gas mileage is not a Green thing to do because the energy saved Ripple United Methodist since 2003. Email your questions/comments to with the better mileage will never add up to the energy expended in making the new tim@broadripplegazette.com car. Sid knew this. No energy was expended on frills and affectation, yet you could always find that unusual food item on his 50 year old shelves at a reasonable price. I especially appreciated his handling of the produce. He never bought into the marketing notion that lettuce is better presented drenched in water. This may have a dubious measure of sensual appeal at the point of sale but it encourages rot which in turn increases waste both at the store and at home. On arriving home with such a product I am compelled to remove it from the package, dry it as best I can, wrap it in paper towel, and repackage it in another dry bag so that it might last more than a day or two in the refrigerator. I could stick Sid’s shrink wrapped lettuce in the refrigerator and not worry about it for better than a week or so. For this and many other similar reasons, I loved Sid’s Atlas, but the most profound loss at Atlas’ closing was the loss of community. I am certain that Atlas made a profit, but it did not seem that it was the primary motive for its existence. There was virtually no turnover in the help – they seemed part of the extended family. They were real, competent, and happy to be there. BROAD RIPPLE Here now arrives Fresh Market and even though the commuBODY, MIND, SPIRIT nity and its leadership supposedly has had considerable input (317) 251-1654 in the design process, neither Green nor Sid seem anywhere to Learn to be pain free and be found. My first impression is that frugality, sufficiency, and build confidence conservation seem to have been replaced by extravagance, Only licensed clinical social worker and Feldenkrais excess, and waste precisely at a time when urgent environMassage Therapist in Broad Ripple mental concerns, rising property taxes, the mortgage debacle, $5.00 off for new clients Massage - Feldenkrais* Method falling dollar values, skyrocketing medical costs and growing Fresh Market economic inequality have degraded the quality of life of the 701 E. 62nd St. Helena Riley, MSW, LCSW, ABMP middle class to the point that many of us are now struggling just to get by.

Although it is probably too late to do much about the building envelope and the mechaniBlue-Eyed Girl Salon cal system, and beyond the obvious efforts to reduce energy consumption, recycle, and reduce waste, Fresh could spearhead a Going Local initiative by leading an effort to establish an organized distributed urban garden 6223 Guilford Avenue network. Fresh appears to have the resources to implement any plan it chooses to pursue. If it chose to, it could engage and contribute to the community by building a network of Free Express Manicure with purchase of small local gardens to supply a portion of its produce instead Spa Pedicure ($20 Value) of relying on the current industrialized system that is heavAsk for Hilliary ily dependent on truck transport.

Further, by converting its rooftop from parking to an intensive green roof with greenhouses, Fresh could grow plant starts for the effort. Radical? Yes. Impossible? Not in my opinion. It Fresh Market Roof Parking would take vision. It would take courage. It would take commitment to community. It would be a truly creative community building move toward sustainability. How cool! How Green - and how respectful to Sid’s legacy.

THUNDERS—The Sympathetic Oscillations EP

Thunders is a local band you must see. The band has great songs, great musicianship, and outstanding stage presence. At their CD release party for The Sympathetic Oscillations EP at Spin last month, the awed and silent (LITTLE BAR-TALK!) crowd stood rapt as lead guitarist and singer Ryan Reidy led the band through a series of excellent compositions that combine garage-rock punch and power with the more wistful and feedback-laden elements of late 80s/early 90s combos like The Jesus and Mary Chain. It is surprising that this combination of styles is rarely heard, as Thunders’ propulsion (outstandingly provided by Mark Tester, Brian Allen, and Tony Beamer on rhythm guitar, bass, and drums, respectively) combined with the howling electric lead work and vocals of Reidy, fit together like hand-in-glove. And while their first recorded effort doesn’t quite match the dynamism of their live show, it still has plenty to recommend it. Recorded in six different houses and three different cities by Reidy before recruiting the other three members of the band to join his vision, The Sympathetic Oscillations begins with a straightforward drumbeat and, in the background, light guitar feedback. Programmed percussion and Reidy’s high-pitched vocals enrapture over a long verse that gives way to an insanely catchy chorus/middle-eight. And as the song progresses, Reidy’s guitar comes to increasingly dominate the sound with feedback-drenched beauty. The second song follows with a nice garage vibe, again combined with a feedback undertow, but Reidy shows the variety in his songwriting over the next couple of cuts, as acoustic strumming combines with airbourne lead lines and no drums to make a lullaby of melodic noise. And while the focus of Thunders certainly rests squarely on the music, Reidy’s lyricism can also demand attention, as on the final cut when he sings “Life is not a fight, it’s a stroll into the light…And darkness for me is to fall into deep sleep.” Such “gentle” sentiments are not often associated with bands that can call up the vibe of the MC5 or the Stooges at a moment’s notice, but such is Reidy’s talent. Consider The Sympathetic Oscillations EP as a taster for the coming full-length. And catch them locally while you can, for this is a band destined for greater things.

SIGUR ROS—Med Sut Ieyrum Vit Spilum Endalaust

Iceland’s Sigur Ros has become a band known for epic songs that slowly build and build to dramatic crescendos, conveying an intense drama that is then set off by their singer’s otherworldy falsetto voice and guitar sounds (often produced with a violin bow). While such dynamism is not absent from Med Sut Ieyrunm Spilum Endalaust (translated as “with a buzz in our ears we play endlessly”), on their newest album the band says they were inspired by a series of acoustic concerts they performed across their native country to convey a more natural and “fun” sound in their work. Spending only three months (as opposed to their usual year or more) in the studio, with many songs captured live in one take, the result is Sigur Ros’ most varied work to date, and one that does not at all suffer in comparison to their previous efforts. Opener “Gobbledygook” begins with tribal drumming at a faster pace than any song they have previously recorded, with acoustic guitars strumming mightily and plenty of “la la la’s” in the background, to yield what is really a very beautiful, off-kilter pop song. The next tune plays out like an up-tempo kids romp, with light keyboards and glockenspiel riding over the top of a marching beat and sweet melodies. The song builds with horns and strings to a glorious climax. The album’s next few compositions largely continue in this up-tempo vein, but by track five, “Festival,” the band dials things back down to spare keyboards and ambient guitar washes over a single vocal line. After four minutes, the band begins one of its epic builds to yield another masterpiece, but one which is all about celebration and uplift, leaving behind their usual focus on haunting, wistful emotions. Both in

Before, the band would achieve their crescendos primarily by adding layers upon layers of keyboards and guitars. But, on “Med Sut,,,,” the band’s mastery of dynamics is based on continually adding new instruments and voices in a live mix, and simply taking the time-honored path of increasing their volume as the song reaches its climax. While this may sound simple, Sigur Ros has always had few equals in their ability to fashion rock songs that come infused with the dramatic sweep of classical music. Combine this “serious” ability with their new-found commitment to simple joy (also depicted in the cover shot of the band running naked across an open road), and the result is an album unlike any other in their discography, and also unlike any other in modern music. You owe yourself a listen. Rick Zeigler, along with his wife, Jeanne, owns Indy CD and Vinyl at 806 Broad Ripple Avenue.

The Broad Ripple Gazette

On the evening of July 4, Duder, my guinea pig, shut his eyes for the final time. I’ve written about Duder before. When a friend of mine no longer wanted the little guinea pig, I offered to take him. Random roommates would hate him because he would wake them up on hungover mornings with his chattering or his cage would stink due to my occasional laziness in cleaning his cage. An ex-boyfriend consistently referred to Duder as “that rat” – it was destined to not work out. No, because perhaps the only tried and true man in my life was the little rodent. Duder had his fair share of quirks. I wrote a column about Duder when I was afraid he was too fat – many of you wrote in, sharing your guinea pig knowledge with me (and thank you!). Unlike most guineas, he didn’t like the fresh veggies I’d give him. He didn’t like to run around either, like most guinea pigs like to do. The man liked to chew, though, but mostly on plastic and cardboard (no, I did not feed him plastic and cardboard, but good luck if you’d’ve left something close to the cage). He was a prude about his food, normally picking through whatever he was given for the corn and the sunflower seeds. He hated to be picked up but relented if you cradled him. But when I noticed he hadn’t eaten his breakfast one afternoon, I knew something had to be up. I’d just switched his food, opting for a brand I knew he wouldn’t like but was readily available at the grocery. I figured he was being the jerk I’d always known him as and was refusing to eat what was given to him. So the next day, when he’d refused dinner the day before and breakfast the morning after, I bought his regular food in the hopes that would help. I also changed the bedding in his cage, knowing how much he liked it all clean and fresh, the way he’d hop around like a little breakdancer. Still no eating. The next morning, I called the vet. I’d never called a vet for a guinea pig before, so I called one that a reader had actually suggested (thank you to Becky Marciniak). Unfortunately, it was the day of July 4 and the veterinary office was closed for the holiday. They did have a number for the vet on-call in case of an emergency and, knowing my little man hadn’t eaten in nearly two days, I decided to call the on-call vet – who was out-of-town. I understand that doctors have lives during the holidays, too, but I don’t understand the idea of being on-call while out-of-town. In any case, the out-of-town, on-call vet suggested hand-feeding Duder via syringe a mix of his food and water that has been run through a blender – at least 60 mL to get him through the weekend, warning me that taking him to the emergency vet would be very expensive. Considering I’d just dropped $475 on my car (don’t ask), I decided I’d try to hand-feed and take him to an emergency vet in the morning if he still seemed sick. The rest of the day quickly went downhill. It seemed as if his breathing slowly deteriorated, like it hurt him to make any noise. He just wanted to burrow into the crook of my elbow or face the back corner of his cage (for no apparent reason, which I later learned was a very bad sign). I left him for two hours, maybe three. When I returned, the breath had simply gone out of him. I freaked out. I cried. I screamed lots of half-formed sentences starting with would’ve, could’ve, and should’ve. I decided it was my fault. I still think it’s my fault. If I would’ve recognized how sick he was earlier, I would’ve taken him to the vet earlier. I should’ve taken him even though the on-call vet advised me of how expensive it would be – I would’ve paid anything to have him be okay. I think the worst part, though, is that he was probably in pain. It probably hurt him to breathe. It probably sucked to have me shove a syringe full of food he didn’t want into his mouth. So now my Duder lies in a Nike shoe box in my boyfriend’s mom’s backyard, about a foot of dirt on top of him. Though a lot of people tell me I shouldn’t blame myself, that it was probably too late anyway, that I couldn’t’ve afforded to take him to the vet, he was my responsibility and I dropped the ball. I’m not one to regret much in my life, but I do regret my actions that week. I should’ve known. Friends keep suggesting a new guinea pig might brighten my life, but I don’t want a new guinea pig. I just want my Duder back. Lisa Battiston worked at Broad Ripple Bagel Deli from December of 2003 until October of 2006.

C Dub is in Alaska. We received this postcard from him.

United Way of Central Indiana has opened volunteer registration for its 17th annual Day of Caring, to take place Friday, September 12 and Saturday, September 13, 2008. Volunteers who register by Friday, August 15 will receive a free event Tshirt. Day of Caring connects community members with meaningful volunteer experiences in Central Indiana. Volunteers work to complete projects for various nonprofit agencies including landscaping, reading to children and visiting the elderly. For businesses that encourage employee volunteerism, Day of Caring offers a unique teambuilding experience and often opens the door to new partnerships within the community. The event can also assist families, schools and organizations with stronger relationships and a better understanding of the value volunteerism brings to the community. In 2007, Day of Caring involved more than 1,900 volunteers who worked on 111 projects at 78 nonprofits in Boone, Hamilton, Hancock, Hendricks, Marion and Morgan counties. Volunteers worked to restore as many as 24 area residences, resulting in better living conditions for elderly, disadvantaged or disabled neighbors. At multiple agency sites, volunteers were exposed to an ongoing need for services such as delivering meals to homebound people, preparing meals for the homeless, walking with senior residents, tutoring children and assisting child care providers. The presenting sponsor for this year’s Day of Caring is Duke Energy. Contributing sponsors are Citizens Gas & Coke Utility and Aqua Systems. Registration is open to all interested individuals, families, business groups and organizations. For more information or to register, visit www.uwci.org or call 317.921.1204.

Not too so we didn’t have the sun right in our faces. The sides hot, not too windy, pretty much just right. And since menu was mostly comprised of potato dishes. After the outside dining is on the east side of the building, placing our orders, we were brought a very tiny loaf we were protected from the sometimes harshness of of bread to split.

It was thick and large and grilled to my specifications, but mashed potatoes were heaping in the tiny bowl, and they were ruffled to look fancy. the lobster pot pie was new and different and was in a light airy crispy crust.

The bananas foster was different After a small wait for desserts, our apple strudel and bananas foster were placed than any bananas foster I had ever had before. It was more liquidy than I was in front of us. The Apple strudel was layered with warm, flexible apple slices and used to, but the taste was definitely bananas foster.

The only negative thing that I would have to say about the restaurant was that it This allowed a warm sensation long after the ice cream had cooled the sauce. I had took us more than two hours to have our meal. I wasn’t in a hurry but that’s a never had this before either, as I would usually go for the simple scoop of ice cream as pretty long time in my eyes. I would recommend the Broad Ripple Steakhouse dessert if anything. I would definitely like to try more, though.
