Rep. Brooks’ district office is in the Broad Ripple firehouse.

Rep. Susan Brooks’ Broad Ripple office

BRVA held party for volunteers and members

By Mario Morone



Congresswoman Susan W. Brooks (R) recently opened a local office in Broad Ripple at Indianapolis Fire Department (IFD) station #32 at 6330 North Guilford Avenue. She invites community members to meet with her district office staff on the first and third Tuesdays of each month from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. Constituents can also visit Rep. Brooks’ two nearby fifth district offices staffed by her colleagues at 11611 N. Meridian Street, Suite 415 in Carmel, whose phone number is (317) 848-0201 and at 120 East 8th Street, Suite 101 in Anderson, where the number is (765) 640-5115. These offices are open Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Those who wish to call the Broad Ripple office should contact the Carmel number as IFD #32 has no direct line. Rep. Brooks represents Indiana’s fifth district that covers eight counties in the Hoosier State, which are: Blackford, Boone, Grant, Hamilton, Howard, Madison, Marion and Tipton. She earned her undergraduate degree from Miami University of Ohio and her law degree from the Indiana University Robert H. McKinney School of Law. Prior to being elected to the House of Representatives, she was general counsel for Ivy Tech Community College and U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of Indiana. She also served as Deputy Mayor Congresswoman Brooks of Indianapolis during Steve Goldsmith’s mayoral tenure where 6330 Guilford Ave [G4] she provided oversight on public (317) 848-0201 safety operations and conducted www.SusanWBrooks.house.gov community dialogue on vital civic issues. During her tenure, she managed police, fire and emergency response efforts while serving on boards related to criminal justice, community corrections, violence reduction and race relations. Rep. Brooks currently serves on the Education and Workforce, Homeland Security and Ethics Committees. She is also Chairman of the Homeland Security Subcommittee on Emergency Preparedness, Response and Communications. Her career in the private sector includes practicing law at Ice Miller and working as a criminal defense attorney for McClure, McClure and Kammen. IFD #32 has strong community ties to her public service background. “The Congresswoman was looking for an easy to access location within the Marion County portion of the 5th District. The Broad Ripple Fire Station fits this description. In addition, dating back to her time as Deputy Mayor of Indianapolis, she’s had a close relationship with our first responder community. So she’s always looking for ways to collaborate with our first responders and call attention to the great work they do. The firefighters at IFD #32 are great at their jobs and are also extremely friendly and gracious hosts. All of them, most especially Captain Harris, have gone out of their way to make our office and our guests feel at home, “said Alex Damron, Rep Brooks’ press secretary. Regarding current legislative issues on her agenda, “Congresswoman Brooks is focused on creating an opportunity for every American to find a good paying job. We have four million open jobs in this country and we must do more to make sure Americans are prepared to fill these open positions. She’s introduced the Computer

The Broad Ripple Village Association (BRVA) held a member and volunteer appreciation party at the Broad Ripple Tavern on February 11. It was a snowy night, but the room was packed. The Broad Ripple Tavern and Zink Distributing provided the food and drink. Door prizes from local businesses were awarded.

Science Education Act, which will provide more students around the nation access to computer science curriculum and programs. Without increasing spending, the bill will provide schools new flexibility to purchase technology and teachers more professional development. It does so by adding Computer Science to the list of “core academic subjects” in our federal education laws. By 2020, it’s expected half of the 9.2 million U.S. STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) jobs will be computing or IT-related. So it’s important we do more to prepare our kids for these jobs,” Damron explained. “She’ll also continue to support efforts to help the unemployed and underemployed. One bill she’ll continue calling attention to is the SKILLS Act. By streamlining more than 35 overlapping federal workforce programs, it reduces barriers that prevent people from receiving the immediate in-demand job training they need. Congresswoman Brooks also authored an amendment to the bill which gives states new freedom to fund local programs that are working. Programs like EmployIndy’s PriorITize, which partners with community leaders like Ivy Tech Community College and Goodwill’s

The Broad Ripple Gazette

Random Ripplings Indy CD and Vinyl, 806 Broad Ripple Avenue [H4 on map], has been a strong supporter of the Gazette for years. Local support is what allows us to continue to bring you the Gazette free every two weeks. The local record store started advertising in the Gazette in our 10th issue, back in 2004. Original owner Rick Zeigler wrote the column Rick on the Records from February 2006 through January 2011. A little history from Indy CD and Vinyl, the largest independent record store in Central Indiana, “Originally established in Salt Lake City in 1993 by Rick Zeigler, the shop migrated to Indianapolis in 2001, picking up the whole brick and mortar and settling in the heart of the historic Broad Ripple, right on Broad Ripple Avenue.� Recently, Rick sold the store to long-time store manager Annie Skinner, her husband Andy Skinner, and friend Eric Davis. Rick is moving to Muncie to focus on his work with Muncie Three Trails Music Series and other not-for-profit endeavors in the Muncie area. On February 8 Indy CD and Vinyl reopened after a week-long remodeling for a weekend of in store DJs and special discounts.

Excel Center to provide computer concepts training and access to externships. The bill passed the House in 2013 and she’s hopeful the Senate will pass it in 2014. Congresswoman Brooks also continues to monitor the flood insurance reforms that have impacted many Broad Ripple area residents. As Congress continues to debate the issue, she will keep in mind the feedback she’s received from 5th District residents,” he added.

We help constituents in any way that we can. We also welcome constituent opinions on any federal issues,” she explained.

I lived on the Old Northside of Indianapolis and also lived in Broad Ripple.” She graduated from the Indiana University School of Law in Bloomington. “Congresswoman Brooks brings so much intelligence, integrity and hard work to Congress that it is a pleasure to work for her. Politics has always intrigued me. I do find it fascinating. We’re happy to be here (in Broad Ripple) and look forward to visiting with the constituents in this area,” Ms. Lueders noted.

Buzzing Around Town with Nora Spitznogle


Ireland was beautiful and green…and damp. The rain couldn’t dampen my spirits, even though they were experiencing record storms; since none of them involved ice or snow so it was all okay with me. I was lucky enough to attend a traditional Irish music session at a hostel one evening and it was lovely. Everyone sat in a sort-of circle – as much as I tried to tuck into a corner, it would not be heard of – and traded songs and stories. There were accordion players and tin whistle blowers to accompany our songs. My Indianapolis-raised, County Kerry-living friend, Linda suggested that we sing

Back Home Again in Indiana. I quickly pulled up the lyrics on my iPhone and we made it through the song. It helps that she has a beautiful voice. I especially loved one man’s recitation of a scene from Irish playwright, John B. Keane’s, play, Sive. The break for tea and biscuits with jam was delivered by a darling young man was delightful. The session ended with all of us singing all of the Pete Seeger songs that we could collectively remember. I realized that I am woefully unprepared in situations like that. I’ve made a promise to myself to learn a James Whitcomb Riley poem to recite from memory. Suggestions?

The background of The Gazette:

I am a life-long resident of the Broad Ripple area. My family has been in Broad Ripple for many generations. Jacob Coil platted and named Broad Ripple in 1837. Two of his daughters married into my family in the 1870s. My grandfather was a mail carrier at the BR post office and a charter member of the American Legion Post. My grandmother Helen Dawson Hague worked at the Broad Ripple National Bank in Mustard Hall that became Fletcher Trust, then AFNB, then Bank One, and now Chase. My uncle Glen Hague worked at TV News and at Hoster-Roberts Ford, which is now Passwater’s and the Old Pro’s Table. My great-grandfather, grandmother, uncle, father, sister and son all graduated from BRHS; I am class of 1978. My son John is BRHS class of 2006, and works with several bands in IPS. I am currently the organizer of the BRHS reunions for the classes of the 1930’s and 1940’s. 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? When is the BRHS Homecoming Parade? 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 six Cultural Districts recognized by the City of Indianapolis. We try to let you know what is going on in the other five 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.

Upcoming Kids Ink author events

David Levithan may be best known for cowriting Nick and Nora’s Infinite Playlist with Rachel Cohn, following two people that just met and their quest for the ultimate secret music show. Rainbow Rowell may be best known for Fangirl, her novel about a twin’s obsession and how unprepared she is for independent living. As different as they may sound, both speak loudly to teens and the stresses they go through in discovering and deciding what kind of people they’re becoming. These authors have teamed up on signing events before, and they’re doing it again at Kids Ink. On Friday, March 14th, starting at 7pm, David Levithan and Rainbow Rowell will be at the store (5619 N. Illinois St.) reading from their books and signing yours! Missing a volume? We’ll have copies on hand ready to sell! These two command a huge following among young adults, so the store may fill up fast – show up early! Mike Mullin’s hit Ashfall series concludes in March with the release of Sunrise, and Kids Ink is pulling out all the stops to celebrate this milestone! On March 15th, from 1-3pm, Kids Ink will host Mike and his newest novel for readers to complete this trial-filled trilogy. Mullin’s epic began with Ashfall in 2012 by detailing the story of Alex and Darla as they try to escape the planet-threatening supervolcano under Yellowstone National Park. Their search for safety gets sidelined in the second volume, Ashen Winter, as they set out to find signs of Alex’s parents and other survivors. Sunrise promises to test them more than anything else, as they attempt to build something sustainable out of what’s left of society. Award-winning author Shannon Hale will be at Kids Ink Bookstore at 4pm, following a whirlwind tour of area schools on March 17th! Hale won the Newbery Honor Award in 2006 for The Princess Academy, a story about a mining village’s struggle for prosperity by educating its daughters. A sequel, Palace of Stone, was published in 2012. Hale’s first published novel was The Goose Girl, a retelling of the classic Brothers Grimm story and first book of her Books of Bayern series. Her upcoming novel, Dangerous, is a standalone story where a quick trip to a new spot turns into a whirlwind of romance and murder.

Darrin Combs, DMD, MS Andrea Ball, DMD

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

A Valentine Night to Remember Many of you are familiar with the hearty, delicious breads and rich, satisfying pastries produced by Alice and Jeanette at Perk Up Cafe. But every year, they offer a small group the chance to enjoy their culinary skills by offering a Valentines DINNER. Yep. All lovingly prepared by the two in the Perk Up kitchen. I have had the pleasure of serving wine at the dinners for the past 5 years. This year’s dinner menu was Asian inspired–tropical notes and warm weather thoughts transferred to the plate. Perfect. As Valentines Day brought forth nearly a half of a foot of snow with it. Getting to Perk Up was an adventure for all, but once there, guests were treated to an evening of exotic dishes (many gluten free) unique wines (including outstanding bottles from two still relatively unknown California regions, Paso Robles and Mendocino County) and a goody bag to go that included a hand-made valentine work of art by Alice’s husband Inacio. If I were you I’d make my down payment now for a seat at next year’s dinner as I am sure it will be a sell out as well. Here’s what you missed. Coconut Kiss cocktail–(pineapple, orange and cherry juices blended with coconut liquor and topped with whipped cream. Warmed everyone up as they headed in from the snow) Money Bag with plum-chili sauce,( a pork/veggie filled spring roll,) Clear soup with stuffed mushroom, cucumber-cashew salad, shrimp and pineapple red curry with a side of rice that was shaped in a heart mold, mango sorbet with ginger cookie, espresso and Jasmine tea. Wines included an off dry Pierre Sparr Gewurztraminer, Gascon Malbec, Alamos Seleccion Malbec, Carnivor Cabernet Sauvignon, Edna Valley Cabernet Sauvignon, Conn Creek Cabernet Sauvignon, Louis Martini Cabernet Sauvignon. But the real Valentine vintages of the night were the wines from Paso Robles and Mendocino. 2012 Villa San Juliette “Chorum”, Paso Robles, California. A rhone style blend of rousanne, grenache blanc, pinot gris, sauvignon blanc and alberino. Lovely nose of lychee and lemon curd. Silky full bodied flavors of banana, pistachio and clean smooth minerality on the finish. (www.villasanjuliette.com) 2007 Harmonique Pinot Noir “Elegance”, Anderson Valley, Mendocino County- Stunning. Rich, round vibrant on the nose and palate. Purely French in style. Lovely notes of currant and roses on the nose. Rich, smooth flavors of black raspberry, cranberry, subtle licorice and eucalyptus. (www.harmoniquewine.com) Jill A. Ditmire is an Omnimedia Wine Specialist who shares wit and wisdom nationwide in print, TV and radio, and is also an AWS-certified wine judge. Jill and doggyboy Harp live in Warfleigh, where she also consults and teaches in an effort to keep the doggyboy’s treat jar filled with biscuits and her freezer stocked with ice cream.

These exceptional companies help make the Indianapolis area a great place to live, work and play. Various sources of information were gathered and analyzed to choose the winners in each category. The 2013 Indianapolis Award Program focuses on quality, not quantity. Winners are determined based on the information gathered both internally by the Indianapolis Award Program and data provided by third parties.

Gift to Butler University Hinkle Campaign Honors Basketball Icon Bobby Plump

– Donors from across the country honored Bobby Plump, the hero of the 1954 “Milan Miracle,” on January 26, with an announcement of a joint $50,000 gift in his name to Butler’s Campaign for Hinkle Fieldhouse. Butler President James M. Danko, former Indiana governor Mitch Daniels, and “Hoosiers” screenwriter and producer Angelo Pizzo were on hand for the gift presentation, along with former Indiana Pacers coach Bob “Slick” Leonard and Maris Valainis, the actor who played Jimmy Chitwood, the character in “Hoosiers” inspired by Plump. In recognition of the gift, the southwest concourse ramp of the fieldhouse will be named for Plump. Work on the Plump gift was initiated by Tom Kohlmeier, who grew up in Milan hearing how Plump sank the final shot that turned tiny Milan High School—with just 161 students— into the Indiana state high school basketball champions and the legend that inspired “Hoosiers.” Sixty years after his famous last shot, Plump still gets requests for autographs and photos when in public, and graciously complies. But his friend for more than four decades remains “a very humble man,” Kohlmeier said.

CLUE: I equals S

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 an 5 in the center section which contains 1-2-4-6-8-9. The 5 in the left section of the middle row eliminates the space between the 8-9. The 5 in the right section of the middle row eliminates the space between the 6-2. The only place left is between the 4-1. You have learned one technique needed to solve Sudoku puzzles. There are many more.

Uninsured in Indianapolis only offered in-state insurance I met with Congressman Carson’s staff in Washington D.C. last week. Among other things discussed, I alerted them to the fact that the 2 health insurance plans offered to uninsured Indy residents (narrow network plans by Anthem and MDWise) on the Health Care Exchange are good only while in the state of Indiana. Only emergencies are covered out-of-state. Carson’s aide informed me that one of their employees – who travels to another state to care for a family member – had the same complaint. Anthem and MDWise – the only 2 companies on the Exchange – should be required to offer coverage nationwide like their regular policies do. Holliday Park Events Get ready for summer with a seminar on hypertuta trough or container gardening on March 6 and 7. Details at to www.Altums.com. Spring Break in Washington by Train! Sick of winter? It’s time for spring break. Take Amtrak to Washington, D.C. Fares from $78 each way (AAA rate). Stay at the Washington Plaza. Weekend rates from $99.

www.broadripplegazette.com School for Blind and Visually Impaired House plant sale set The School has a spring houseplant sale coming up on February 27, February 28, and March 1. They have a nice green house on the property. The plants are grown by the students. Prices are reasonable so don’t miss it. See www. indianabcf.org for details. Take the bus twice an hour from the Ripple Did you know we have 2 bus lines that provide twice an hour service to downtown from Broad Ripple Avenue? Leave the driving to IndyGo. Take the #17 and #18. The fare is just $1.75 each way. Looking to the future, we may get the chance to vote to expand transit options. SB 176 (the Central Indiana Transit bill) is moving through the legislature. The bill – although heavily amended – would allow central Indiana the right to vote to increase our taxes to pay for better regional transit. Bill Malcolm is a long-time Broad Ripple resident who covers transit, travel, energy, and other issues for 4 publications including the new one, All Aboard Indiana! (a journal for Hoosier passenger rail advocates). He welcomes reader feedback, comments, corrections, and story ideas and can be reached at bill@broadripplegazette.com

& Old Town of Broad Ripple Meeting Minutes The Town of Broad Ripple was incorporated in 1894, and started holding regular meetings at that time. In each issue, I will print my transcription of the old Town of Broad Ripple meeting minutes. These are taken from original, hand-written minutes that contain many spelling errors. I transcribed the records as they were entered, including errors. I will make some corrections/additions to the text in brackets [ ]. The original minutes books are at the Indiana State Archives at 6440 E. 30th St.

Here is the one-hundred forty-second installment:

The Traction Company ordinance part 4 - must gong at persons SECTION 12.

Share Nice with Others So….I’m getting out the good ol’ soap box for this one. I am sure and understand that many people will not agree with me on this topic, and I totally get it. But we can agree to disagree…or maybe a better phrase would be that we just do not see eye to eye. But everyone is entitled to his/her opinion and since I have the luck of writing this column, I felt like sharing mine with the BR Gazette readers. Every winter, and this one in particular since it is especially nasty and long, many brave people go to great lengths to gear up (this is quite a feat in fact) to get outdoors to get in some exercise. Whether it be snowshoeing, running, skiing, walking or even cycling, doing so is not for the faint of heart due to the subzero temperatures and hazardous road/trail conditions. In fact, many days I think I may be crazy that I hassle with all the effort to get out there for a run when my weather channel app has a huge orange exclamation point symbolizing severe weather. However, I never ever regret getting out after I am done, and that is what forces me to layer up and be a snow bunny. However, every winter I also battle with angry motorists either nearly running me over, honking/yelling at me to get out of the road, or throwing their arms up in frustration. You see, the 2 seconds that it may take to get around me while I am braving the elements is apparently more important than my safety. Yes, I can see why people think it is ridiculous that some venture onto the winter roads, so I would like to try and explain the “rationale” behind why (at least in my case) we do so. Argument 1: The roads are only for cars. I disagree!! As New York mayor Michael Bloomberg eloquently stated “Our roads are not here for automobiles. Our roads are here for people to get around. Our streets are here to transport people. Cyclists and pedestrians are as important, if not more important, as automobile riders.” I pay my taxes, just like everyone else and as long as I obey the laws of the road I feel I am just as entitled to be on the roads as vehicles. Argument 2: Use the Monon. Yes, I often run on the Monon trail, but you can only run on the pretty flat and straight path so much until you are bored to tears. Also, people training for long distances such as a marathon or events that require hill climbing need variety and changing elevation. Argument 3: Go on a treadmill. I hardly even feel that I need to comment on this one as a treadmill for most is the definition of evil. Well, necessary evil at times, but the gerbil wheel is about the most boring things on the planet. Yes, I own two and see the value in using them, but it certainly isn’t anything I would choose to do over being outdoors. Hopefully some of my reasons will make sense to many of you and next time you are approaching a runner/cyclist on the road, rather than being tempted to drive right into that huge puddle to splash slush all over them (happens ALL the time), you will respectfully move around them. Either that or I may have to hide out and run on the Monon for the next couple of months to avoid those who disagree. 

The Broad Ripple Gazette

Vol. 11 No. 4

Right in my Own B a c k y a r d by Brandt Carter Anchor In Our History It’s history review time. I think we always need to know what has gone before to better understand today and beyond. So let’s look at the hardy influences that gave rise to this amazing community ― Broad Ripple. You may have heard the story, but I am going to take it from another slant… the spirit that gave shape to this community. Indianapolis was founded in 1821 by an act of the Indiana General Assembly and replaced Corydon as the new seat of government January 1, 1825. Prior to its official founding, Indianapolis was a swampy area called the Fall Creek Settlement, sparsely settled by fur traders. While Indianapolis was situating as the capital, Broad Ripple was also taking form. In 1822 the land in this area was purchased from the U.S. government. Jesse McKay and John Calip [Colip] acquired 147 acres, and Jonas Huffman took possession of 60 acres. Settlers came to the area on the White River by flatboats loaded with household goods. The shallow ripples of the White River served as a popular crossing for travelers, merchants, and settlers. The late 1830s were a boom time for our community. Divided by the canal, Broad Ripple was on the north and Wellington on the south. Homes, grist mills, saloons, grocery and general stores sprung up as the two communities sparred and competed. Fourteen years after the grand bill was passed, there were enough people to need a post office. It opened in 1850 and was moved back and forth between the two communities until 1884. Some 34 years later the permanent location was moved to Wellington, and the two communities became Broad Ripple with a total of 150 residents. McKay, Calip, Coil, and Nelson were some of the names of movers and shakers of the times. During this era there were some wild, unsavory characters who probably contributed to residents wanting churches. The first churches were populated by Presbyterians, Baptists, and Quakers. The community built a common building called the Union Church (on the site of the fire station at 6330 Guilford). This large, wood structure served as the church facility for all denominations at Broad Ripple United Methodist Church one time. The Methodist Episcopal Church met in that building after establishing a class in Broad Ripple in 1852. It was originally part of the Allisonville Circuit. The Castleton Methodist Church preceded the Broad Ripple Church. Churches during those times had circuit preachers who held big camp meetings and revivals. Hymn singing, sermons, Sunday school, and saving lives from wandering ways were part of the religious life of the area. Methodists and Quakers, with anti-slavery sympathies in common, aligned. If you want to read a complete history of Broad Ripple United Methodist Church, you can find an indepth document online, “One Hundred Fifty Years in Broad Ripple, Celebrating Methodism’s Outpost for Preaching the Gospel in Broad Ripple.” Spirit and the spiritual are still part of our community. Check out the Directory of the Gazette and you will find 22 places of worship listed. This guide can be helpful when you are looking for a location for a wedding, a funeral, or a place to find fellowship. If you are trying to find a faith connection, visit one of our local churches.
