Vintage Vogue by GW By Mario Morone

mario@broadripplegazette.com Vintage Vogue by GW (Goodwill) offers consumers an eclectic selection of fashions at this Glendale-area store, located at 2361 E. 62nd Street. “There’s a combination of vintage and high-end fashions that you might not see or would have to hunt for in our traditional Goodwill stores. What we do is pull merchandise from our 50 stores that fit the Vintage Vogue product description. The definition of vintage is twenty years old, so something that was made in the early 1990s would be considered vintage. If you’re looking for that ‘50s or ‘60s look, those are a little harder to find. We have men’s and women’s clothes, furniture and some accessories, like vases, artwork, statues and some unique pieces like handbags, shoes, jewelry and scarves,” said Cindy Graham, Vice President of Marketing. “We have had a Vintage Vogue in Bloomington for about three years on [422 E.] Kirkwood Avenue, very close to the Indiana University campus. The model wasn’t actually started by us, but by other Goodwill stores across the country. We began looking at this idea in Monroe County. Last year, we began looking for a site in Marion County for Vintage Vogue by GW Vintage Vogue. We thought the store had a good location within (317) 252-5348 the Broad Ripple area. We thought the merchandise mix would appeal 2361 E. 62nd St. [II31] to teenagers, early 20s, as well www.vintagegw.org as to those in their 50s. It’s not a model that we’ll frequently replicate. We will keep it exclusive to the area,” she emphasized. “On Wednesdays, anyone 55 years and older receives a 30 percent discount. This store will also participate in our 50 percent off sales the first Saturday of every month. We don’t accept donations at this store, but we do have a location close by at 6161 N. Keystone Avenue that does. The proceeds from sales at Vintage Vogue and other Goodwill stores provide funding for employment and educational services for individuals in Central Indiana,” Graham noted. Vintage Vogue’s store hours are 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday through Saturday and 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Sunday. Their website, www.vintagegw.org, contains more information. Questions can be answered by calling the boutique at 252-5348. Vintage Vogue offers clothing, furniture and accessories for sale at affordable prices and helps provide a bright future for citizens in the local community.

It looked like rain, but the weather ended up good for the 3rd annual Hoods & Hops car show at Indianapolis North Side Optimist Park, located at 775 65th Street [A3 on map]. There were about 30 classic vehicles on hand for the crowd to enjoy. Broad Ripple Brewpub supplied the local beer, with proceeds benefiting the Broad Ripple Village Association. The event included parachutists!

The photo was taken by Scott Estrada. It is of one of three skydivers who jumped from a Hood & Hops organizer John Hill inspects a 1939 small plane at 2000 feet and Pontiac De Luxe 2-door sedan. It original price: $871! landed in the middle of Opti Park amid the spectators and cars.

Banner Artist of the issue

The artist for this banner is C.W. Pruitt, II (Gazette poet). His pen and ink interpretation has sections - RIPPLE suggests the White River, GAZETTE represents the newsprint of the paper, the green at the bottom is Broad Ripple Park, and BROAD is the sun shining down on the Gazette. “This is an amazing opportunity for me to do the banner, especially considering the caliber of the artists who have gone before me,” explained CW. CW has been making art since 2004. He works on canvas with paints and on paper with pen and ink. He traveled with Bill Emmert, who sold art to pay for the trip. “His art was an inspiration,” said CW. CW has shown paintings at various locations in the 54th and College area. “When I sell a painting, I put the money back in to paint brushes and canvases.” You can contact CW at (317) 254-0533. To celebrate the 10th anniversary of the Broad Ripple Gazette we are featuring a year of local artists by allowing them to interpret our banner, while incorporating the words “The Broad Ripple Gazette”. Contact us at info@broadripplegazette.com to inquire if any open issues remain. Still looking for cartoonist, tattoo artist, pen and ink, etc.

In the coverage of the June Broad Ripple Village Association Land Use and Development committee meeting, I incorrectly stated that the committee voted unanimously to support the sidewalk dining proposal for HopCat at College and Westfield. The motion was to support the request if the Department of Metropolitan Development staff report supported it. That motion was approved unanimously, with one abstention. After the meeting, the DMD staff report was released and it recommended denial. Therefore, the BRVA Land Use Committee also recommended denial.

Pioneer Village Opry Stage - WLS Natl Barn Dance Review Friday, Aug 8, 7 PM & Saturday, Aug 9, 3 PM and 7 PM

I always love this show and was reminded of how much when I saw a taped broadcast of last year’s show on WFYI the other night. Pioneer Village musicians recreate the WLS National Barn Dance radio show that was broadcast from Chicago from 1924 – 1968. The cast does a great job in throwing in a little history, some musician profiles, and a corny joke or two. The Opry Stage is also in Pioneer Village in a barn right behind the Pioneer Village Barn.

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 #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 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 is Assistant Band Director at BRMHS. 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 BRMHS 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. 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. -Alan Hague

Children’s Summer Stock Stage presents “The King and I”

Summer Stock Stage, a nonprofit summer theater program for performers ages 13-19 in the Indianapolis area, will present “The King and I” at Ayres Auditorium at Park Tudor School on July 24- 26 at 7:30 p.m. and July 27 at 2:30 p.m. This family-friendly classic marks the last of the group’s summer musical productions with all ticket proceeds going directly toward the program. More than 40 of the most talented students from public, private and charter schools from throughout central Indiana have spent months rehearsing with director Emily Ristine Holloway, music director Jeanne Bowling and choreographer Cherri Jaffee. In addition to the teenage performers, 22 elementary-age students will act as the King’s many children. “The King and I” is a unique love story featuring Anna, a British governess hired to tutor the royal children, and the stubborn King of Siam. Both stuck in their separate cultural ways, the two eventually come to understand, respect, and love one another. As one of Rodgers and Hammerstein’s most charming stories, this much-loved musical features the hit songs “Hello, Young Lovers,” “Getting to Know You,” and the unforgettable “Shall We Dance.” All tickets are $17. On July 25 at 6 p.m., Summer Stock Stage will host a patron reception featuring the artistic staff in Foster Hall at Park Tudor School. Reception tickets are available online and proceeds will be used to cover program participation costs for many of the performers. All tickets are on sale now and can be purchased through www.summerstockstage.com. Audience members are encouraged to buy tickets early as the performances do sell out. Ticketing questions should be emailed to info@summerstockstage.com.

The Broad Ripple Gazette

Howling at the Moon by Susan Smith Originally I came on board this publication to write about pet topics, which I do, but often I write about neighborhood and past trivia. So this issue I want to stay on course and tell you about some pet related interests that you might benefit from, in no particular order. • The Indiana State Fair is coming and one of the animals that your kids would love to see is rabbits. I have a friend from Ft. Wayne who lives on ten acres and she has raised her kids in 4H. Her youngest just graduated high school and is off to college so this is her last year to fill the van with cages and bring the bunnies for judging. I advise you to go the first few days of the fair so as not to miss them. They arrive before opening day so they are done early in the fair schedule and ready to go home. It is in the poultry barn and housed with the most incredible chickens and roosters. Both the poultry and rabbits have many different breeds and some are very odd and others the stuff artists love to paint. Don’t miss them. You will be amazed how many there are. It’s a good place to buy a new pet bunny. You know what they say about rabbits multiplying and those 4H kids don’t know what to do with all of them. • If you have a dog that loves to exercise and swim a wonderful nature place is Marott Park, across from Park Tudor School at 71st and College. White River runs behind it and lots of dogs swim there. It’s a great place to fetch in the water. Some dogs love it even in the winter. • Our friends at Paw Patch Place have moved their vet clinic next door to American Village on 54th Street just west of Keystone. I have been on a private tour with Dr. Penny Dowden so I can tell you firsthand what a super job she did relocating her practice. It is so spacious. She has made a separate waiting area for kitty clients so they are not as freaked as cats always are. Parking is a breeze and safe away from traffic which had been a big concern. • August 27th the Indianapolis Indians will host, for the second time this season, “Bark in the Park”. A special place at Victory Field will be reserved for fans and their pets to watch the game. Tickets start at $20.00 (one person, one dog). One $20.00 human ticket must be purchased for every dog brought to the game. Additional human tickets (without a dog) are $8.00. Fans bringing two or more dogs must bring an additional human per dog. For more information call the box office at (317) 269-3545. • Your dog or cat could be the next hero by becoming a blood donor to IndyVet’s Canine and Feline Blood Bank. Blood is used by IndyVet and other veterinary hospitals throughout Indiana and across the country for transfusions during emergency treatments, major surgeries and anemia. Each unit collected can save 2-4 pets. Donors must meet age requirements (between 1-8 years), minimum weight requirements (35 pounds dog-9 pounds cat), must have good general health, current on all vaccinations, and taking heartworm medication (dogs). Each qualifying donor receives a complimentary, comprehensive physical exam and yearly blood work. Donors who commit to the minimum number of annual donations receive at no charge: annual exams and vaccines, heartworm testing and 40% discount on select services, including heartworm and flea medications and emergency services. For more information call IndyVet at (317)782-4484. • While this is not a pet, one of my favorite animals is the lemur. The Ring-tailed Lemur has always intrigued me and I go out of my way to see them at the zoo. They are such monkeys and I guess they nearly are. A photo I share here was taken last summer at the primate house at the St. Louis Zoo. While on a business trip to that city I made a special visit to the zoo and to see them. I was super excited to see that Patricia C. Wright, the winner of this year’s Indianapolis Prize, will open the 2014-15 J. James Woods Lectures at Butler University. Wright is a professor at Stony Brook (N.Y.) University and won the Indianapolis Prize for her work photo by Susan Smith in protecting lemurs in Madagascar.

TCC has begun renovations of the 13,000 sqft warehouse adjacent to the Monon Trail. The $1.8M renovations are expected to be complete in the Fall 2013. Including the purchase price, TCC is investing $3M into the 3.6acre property. After the renovations are complete, TCC will relocate its corporate office to Broad Ripple, bringing approximately 120 employees into the community.

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. We will put a 7 in the easy puzzle in the right section of the bottom row that contains 2-3-5-9. The 7 in the middle section of the bottom row eliminates the two spaces to the right of the 7. The 7 in the left section of the bottom row eliminates the space to the left of the 3. The 7 in the right section of the middle row eliminates the spaces above and below the 9. The only space left is directly to the left of the 5. You have now learned one technique needed to solve Sudoku puzzles. There are many more.

E. Hall Kempson, who we all know as “Red”, is one of Broad Ripple’s oldest surviving WWII Veterans. He volunteered and served in the U.S. Army 77th Service Division 8th Air Force Army Air Corps for four and a half years. He had a wish for his 93rd Birthday. He said “Frog, I want to ride a motorcycle.” What to do, what to do??? One call to Doug Roy of Roy’s General Service and BAM your wish is my command. A birthday party was planned at Plump’s Last Shot. In attendance were Susan “Little Red” Castor, Kenny Castor, Ms Katy Warner (age 92), Sherry Adams (a Disabled Vietnam Veteran), Chrissy Barber, Federico Lomelin and yours truly.

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

New Ways to Learn about Wine One of the new features at the 2014 Indiana State Fair is an Indiana Wine and Craft Beer Garden. The venue is in the Grand Hall. You have to be 21 to enter and you must consume your beverage in the garden, no strolling the fairgrounds with a corn dog in one hand and a craft beer in the other. But the garden will be open daily from 1 to 9pm. There will be 4 beers and 4 wines offered each day, and they will change on a regular basis so the nearly 70 Indiana craft beer producers and wineries can each have the chance to showcase their product. I did a wine education event this past weekend that focused on Italian wines. We offered an affordable, eclectic variety of grapes including a few that were organic. The only way to learn about a wine is to taste it, so once again I encourage you to attend wine tastings. Or have your own. These are all widely available and were happily consumed by the attendees. Pizzolato Prosecco–fresh, fizzy fun. Made from organic grapes. La Fiera Moscato–look for the carousel on the label. Not as sweet as some moscato and with a slight fizz. Aromas and flavors of guava and mango. Gran Passione Falangnina Beneventano–old world white from the south of Italy. Elegant, dry, smooth. Inviting nose of citrus with creamy, clean finish. If you like Puilly Fume you will love this Italian offering. La Fiera Montepulciano d’Abruzzo–earthy, easy drinking red. $10 a bottle makes it the perfect pizza, pasta or burger bottle. Terra D’Arcoiris Chianti Superiore–Eco friendly, small producer from Tuscany. Old world nose of black cherry and almonds. Grippy tannins, rich bold red fruit. Serious dry red wine. 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.

Jul 25 - Aug 7, 2014 Hidden History solution

puzzle on Page 10


by Laura Minor

The shootings that occurred in Broad Ripple at 2:30am on July 5th were many things to many people. Scary, disturbing, angering and sad to name just a few. When something tragic like this happens in one’s neighborhood it can invoke many emotions and reactions which of course are totally understandable since everyone deals with trying situations differently. For example, these crimes, and the handful of others in recent history in Broad Ripple, may cause someone to want to avoid the area due to the inherent possible danger. And, again, understandable but unfortunate…and I would like to explain why I would urge you to take a different approach. As I learned of these crimes of course I was deeply saddened, but probably more so, (although this word is a noun I think you will get it), I felt retaliation. You see, I, as many others have considered Broad Ripple my “home” for virtually my entire life. I hung out here and goofed off through high school (yep, I was one of those kids). And this is the neighborhood where I began my career as an entrepreneur having had all three locations in this unique and characteristic town. I thank this community for supporting my and hundreds of other endeavors by patronizing small and local business. Frankly, it is because of the residents of Broad Ripple and Meridian Kessler that I am not working at a Big Box Corporate Gym. So, when I heard of this stupid and ignorant act, what does it make me want to do? Not hide away from the area and run up north or wherever else; it makes me want to support Broad Ripple like crazy, even more than before. Leaving the area sends a message to the criminals trying to “take over” our neighborhood: THEY WIN. They act like fools and yet, they move on into the town that we have worked so hard to build up with charm and vitality as we run in the other direction. If people turn away, it would ultimately lead to businesses closing, vacant properties, more crime, etc. Supporting businesses, using the Monon trail, visiting the parks, going to festivals, farmers market, the Art Center, dining at the restaurants, etc. sends a very different message to the offenders: This is our town, we have perseverance and tenacity and how dare you try to ruin it. As, many of you know this is not the first time something in this arena this has happened to me. In 2013, I ran the Boston Marathon and was past the finish line when I witnessed the bombs detonate. It was a very traumatic experience, and I suffered from PTSD for about 6 months after. BUT, I was hell bent on returning this year to run again. Many people thought I was crazy, but many also thought I was spot on. I had to go back and it was an amazing experience and very healing for me. Of course I had some fear…but if I didn’t return, I would have let Boston, a city I completely adore, down. And the bombers would have defeated me. So I urge you, don’t turn your back on Broad Ripple, people. Give it the love and support it deserves as Indianapolis’ “midtown” playground. The police and the BRVA are working diligently to increase the safety of the patrons, and honestly I disagree with those that say there isn’t a police presence. I have always seen them everywhere! Is life dangerous? Well, yes, every time you get in your car or even step into the shower there is always some level of danger. Of course I am not saying that boozing in Broad Ripple at 2:30am on a Saturday night is the ideal safe situation. However, it is not just the responsibility of law enforcement to keep out the “bad guys”, it is the people and the culture of a unified urban area to stand together and rise above it. **Side note: I wrote this article on July 15th. It is now July 18th and I arrived home from dinner in Ripple and it was packed everywhere!! Love it….keep it coming 

Right in my Own B a c k y a r d by Brandt Carter Age Can Be Advantageous Seventy-six million American children were born between 1945 and 1964, hailed as Baby Boomers. The aging of this generation has me thinking about Broad Ripple from yet another perspective. Retirement can be a blessing or a challenge depending upon health, circumstances that have developed, and attitude. Let’s look at some opportunities in the area that may hold special appeal: • Goodwill has Senior Discount Day on Wednesdays • Many restaurants have Early Bird Specials and senior portions • Numerous movie theaters have discounted matinees and senior prices • Indiana State Fair has a Senior Day • Humane Society offers companion pets to folks 60 years of age of older with $50 off regular adoption fees • IndyGo extends half pricing to persons 65 and older • Some medical insurance plans cover access to fitness gyms • Ivy Tech offers free tuition to Hoosiers over 60 • Attractions including the Children’s Museum and Indianapolis Zoo have senior discounts To help you plan your future, here are a few other senior resources: www.seniorjobban.com www.frugalliving.about.com (Senior Discounts) www.indycreativeaging.org www.seniorcitizensguide.com www.cicoa.org If you have parents going through the senior years, you may want to check out Joy’s House located in Broad Ripple. I pass these colorful building fronts daily and know that good things are happening behind their doors. It’s a non-profit, adult day center providing physical, mental, and financial relief for families caring for a loved one. Another Broad Ripple area resource for caregivers is American Village, a senior retirement center with a full American Village on 54th Street. spectrum of senior care. If you are a senior you might just want to have fun in the village by • Cruising the streets in a vintage car • Taking an art class at the Art League • Going to the Comedy Club • Dining alfresco on patios in the Village • Exercising in a yoga or Pilates class • Walking or riding your bike on the Monon Trail • Attending a group at a church • Catching up on history with the BR Gazette • Volunteering with the Broad Ripple Village Association Whether young or old, there is something for everyone in Broad Ripple. Look around, get out, and engage. There are new experiences, good discounts, surprises, and new acquaintances to be had and enjoyed.

D o G o o d , H a v e Fu n E v e n t D o e s Just That


UPCOMING EVENTS Annual Sidewalk Sale on August 3

We will meet at Thr3e Wise Men (1021 Broad Ripple Ave.). No agenda, just a gathering for drinks and fabulous food with nice people! All business owners and employees are welcome! $3.50 pints and free breadsticks. Broad Ripple YPN (Young Professionals Network) will be there, too! 6:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. We hope to see you there. RSVP at https://augbizdivbrypnsocial.eventbrite.com. If you have any questions or would like to volunteer on the Biz Div committee, email bizdiv@brva.org.

On Friday, June 27, Bud Light and Keep America Beautiful partnered with BRVA, Friends of White River and IndyParks to take on improvement projects in the Village. Nearly 60 volunteers worked to remove weeds and invasives, clean up river banks, and complete painting and landscaping projects. We’d like to thank all the Zink Distributing Company employees who joined us and all the other volunteers from around the city that came up to the Village to do good and have fun!

Message from BRVA President, Justin McKeand Indianapolis has endured a violent summer. With the killing of Officer Renn and the shooting of six people in Broad Ripple, these crimes feel very close to home. The BRVA wants you to know that we are experiencing the same emotions and frustration as you. We have been working hard to come up with ways to curb the violence in our community. We want to see Broad Ripple return to its roots as a vibrant and thriving cultural district, but this task is impossible to achieve on our own: it will take the cooperation of our residents, business owners, visitors, and city leaders. The BRVA has met with the Mayor’s office, City-County Councillors, and the Marion County Prosecutor’s Office to discuss Broad Ripple’s specific needs for public safety and our ideas on how to address those needs. We came up with a multi-pronged approach that includes: • Closing Broad Ripple Avenue from 12am until 4am on Fridays and Saturdays to civilian vehicles • Targeting the liquor licenses connected to crime • Monitoring pedestrian traffic flow and reducing loitering • Policing parking lots These efforts will not eliminate all crime in Broad Ripple, but they are immediate, they are concrete, and they will have impact. The Village needs your ideas and your support in the coming weeks. Please share your ideas via our Public Safety survey: https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/KeepBroadRippleSafe through July 31. We have also launched a Go Fund Me site through which you can make tax-deductible donations towards high impact public safety improvement projects. Funds raised will go towards additional security resources, lighting on the Avenue, common area maintenance and additional security cameras. Donate here: http:// www.gofundme.com/KeepBroadRippleSafe. BRVA is looking for businesses that are willing to match the contributions we raise on our Go Fund Me page. Please consider a matching donation of $500 or $1000, or whatever you can afford to help us create a safer Village. Contact publicsafety@brva.org for more information. Let’s solve this together.

Want to Curb Crime in Your Neighborhood? Here are a few tips. Create an attractive place: Clean the sidewalks, curbs, and streets around your business and residence. Maintain and keep landscaping trimmed so that it is not a place for criminals to hide. Report graffiti to the Mayor’s Action Center at www.indy.gov/ MAC or (317) 327-4622. Report out street lights to IPL at www.IPLpower.com under the “Storm and

Outage Info” heading, or call IPL’s “Lights Out, Day or Night” number at (317) 261-8111. Report any suspicious activity to IMPD. If it is in progress dial 9-1-1. Leave your store lights on if you are a business and your porch light on if you are a resident. Consider adding additional lighting to the exterior of your home or building facing both the street and alley.

DPW and BRVA Host Open House to Discuss Parking Restrictions

On Monday, August 4 and Thursday, August 7, from 6:30 to 8:00 PM, the Department of Public Works and Broad Ripple Village Association will host open houses to discuss proposed parking restrictions in residential areas near the Broad Ripple Avenue commercial district. Affected areas include the neighborhood south of Broad Ripple Avenue between College Avenue and the Monon Trail, the neighborhood west of the mixed-use parking structure, and the southeastern portion of the Warfleigh neighborhood. Both meetings will have the same presentation and handouts, so you only need to attend one. Please RSVP at this link: http://brvaparking. eventbrite.com for the date and time that works best for you. Both meetings will be held at Broad Ripple United Methodist Church, 6185 Guilford Ave.
