July land use meeting - 3 and 5 floor projects By Alan Hague

alan@broadripplegazette.com There were three items on the agenda for the July 22 public meeting of the Broad Ripple Village Association (BRVA) Land Use and Development (LU&D) Committee that was held at the Indianapolis Art Center. There were approximately 40 in attendance. The first item on the agenda, property at 6311 Westfield Boulevard, was omitted as the petitioner did not attend the meeting. The second item on the agenda was for: 806-888 E. 66th Street, Chris Chabenna and members of JHJ Holdings with more specific plans for the development of this are for multi-family dwellings. This was the third time for this project to come before the committee. The proposed project is to raze the remaining building at the site that currently houses a Montessori school, and build a 63-unit apartment building (see above photo). Other homes were previously razed a few years ago when the property was slated for a different development. The building design is 3 floors of apartments with parking underneath. Parallel parking along 66th and sidewalks will be added. The hearing is set for August 14. The committee voted to support the petition. The third agenda item was for: 6440 Westfield Boulevard, Greg Jacoby regarding redevelopment for a parking garage, office building and restaurant. This is the second time this proposal has been before the committee. Since the first appearance, a BRVA Land Use Sub-committee was formed and has met with the petitioner twice to work out concerns. This proposal is to raze the Kennington Post American Legion #34 at 65th and Westfield Boulevard and build an office building, restaurant and parking garage on the site. The design of the building is quite complex, due to the differing frontages - the river is across Westfield to the east, the Monon Trail is on the west and 65th Street is on the north. The Envision Broad Ripple Plan calls for different design scales for these different frontages. The proposed design attempts to fulfill all of the demands, with less mass on the trail side and the taller portion on the river side (see image below with trail on right, 66th on lower left and Westfield and White River on upper left behind building). This petition will appear before the committee once more before the hearing downtown. The BRVA LU&D public meetings are the 4th Tuesday of each month.

The Red Bull Mini Moto was held on Broad Ripple Avenue on August 3rd. 16 teams vied for tickets to the August 8-10 2014 MotoGP at IMS.

Banner Artist of the issue

The artist for this banner is Maggie Machledt Girard. She is a paper-cutting artist and art therapist. Maggie grew up just south of Broad Ripple, had the chance to live in Michigan, DC, Pittsburgh and Philadelphia before moving back to Broad Ripple recently. “I love living in Broad Ripple–I am grateful for the creativity in local businesses, the accessibility by bike, and the canal, so I’ve included these in my banner.” In addition to papercut art, she repurposes flat bike tubes to make earrings and necklaces. “I like that this rubber material, which usually sits for years in a landfill when we get flat tires, is light-weight and versatile, and can be cut into feathers and leaves and so many shapes.” You can check them out at www.pleasebikethanks. etsy.com, or soon at Gather :handmade shoppe & Co. in Bloomington (www. gathershoppe.com). When not cutting up paper & bike tubes, Maggie works as an elementary school art therapist, and is in constant awe of how creative and resilient kids can be.


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.

I can’t believe that this is the fifth year for Indy Hostel Folk Fest – or that Indy Hostel is in their eleventh year of business. Before the hostel opened I had hundreds of out-of-town musicians sleep on my sofa. The majority of them had played at CATH coffeehouse and then word spread and I was a stop on the Underground Railroad of Touring Musicians. As much as I loved having them at my house, I was so excited for the hostel to open that I was painting walls and cleaning bathrooms to help get the place ready. Upland Brewing will bring the beer truck and food trucks will be on-site. Freewheelin’ Community Bikes will be on-site to valet your bicycle. Feel free to bring a chair or blanket with you. Music Lineup: 12:30 - Dave Carter, 1:10 - Cyrus Youngman, 2:00 - Michael Kelsey, 3:00 - The Dapper, 4:00 - Sindacato, 5:00 - Knollwood Boys, 6:00 - Lisa Walks, 7:00 Joshua Powell, 8:00 - Willoughby Sprig, 9:00 - Sweet Poison Victim, 11:00- INDYPROV


WNAP Raft Race 40th Reunion and WARMup to WARMfest Sunday, August 10 White River Yacht Club (1400 E 74th St) Broad Ripple Park (1550 Broad Ripple Ave) all-ages, free, Noon – 6:00 PM

Does anyone remember the WNAP raft races? I still can’t believe that anyone let all of us slightly tipsy youngsters float down the White River in homemade “rafts.” The first raft race was held in 1974 and the last in 1983. Creativity was the key in designing your raft, with water-worthiness and the quality of beer that you could carry factoring into your design. The raft races would end with a worthy of the times big-hair rock concert. There is no race this year, but you can re-live the glory days or hear first-hand about the crazy times. Starting at noon at the White River Yacht Club there will be music from Dr. Spin - The World’s Only All Vinyl D.J., vintage Raft Race video footage and a meet-andgreet with your favorite WNAP jockeys. Dig out those old photo albums because there will also be a photo contest for “Coolest Raft Race Photo Ever” and practice your stories for the “Best Raft Race Story Ever Told” open mic competiton.* Though the Raft Race Reunion isn’t actually a race, people are encouraged to bring your sea worthy watercraft and join the fleet. Motorized watercrafts will need to launch from the public boat ramp at Broad Ripple Park, just inside the main entrance to the left. If you have a hand carry boat (canoe, kayak, etc.), you may use the boat ramp at the White River Yacht Club or the one at Broad Ripple Park. Or, you can turn off your mind, relax, and float downstream from a boat landing somewhere to the north. Join the flotilla and brave the mighty White River once again. The party continues until 6:00 PM at Broad Ripple Park where Warm up to Warm Fest will have live music, yoga and tai chi programs, arts & crafts booths, drinks, food trucks,

It’s the kind of thing you pull out at parties, people gather around and hang on your every word. Maybe it’s how you met your (first) wife/husband. Launching your raft. Meeting the mayor. Streaking the concert. Do you have a burning desire to stand at an open mic, tell it to the world and maybe win some cool prizes? 1. The story has to be absolutely true. 2. You must be able to tell the story in two minutes or less. 3. They are limiting the number of storytellers to the first 15 people to sign up. 4. Sign up will be a clipboard at the Irvington Vinyl / T-Shirt Distribution table. 5. Storytelling starts promptly at 2:15pm, and storytellers will present in the order they signed up. 6. WNAP jocks will narrow the field from fifteen to three finalists using whatever criteria they want. Their decisions are final. 7. Audience cheers will determine the order of the top three. 8. You agree to have your story video recorded, and possibly become immortalized in a TV show we may or may not ever put together. How to enter the Coolest Raft Race Photo Ever Contest - Looking through your photo album, do you think you have the coolest photo ever taken at a raft race? It could be of you, your raft, a band, the raft race queen, crowds, traffic, disc jockeys, or other raft race craziness? 1. Make a copy of your original photo. It’s easy - you should be able to do it at CVS, Walgreens, WalMart, Target, etc. Make a copy about 5x7 or 8x10. You’ll be leaving it at the yacht club. 2. Write your name and phone number on the back. 3. Bring the photo(s) to the White River Yacht Club on August 10 from Noon to 2:00 PM. 4. You can bring as many entries as you want. 5. When you get to the club, look for one of the little boxes with push pins on the window sill of the deck. Go ahead and take one push pin for each photo you brought. 6. Pin the photo onto any of the posts out on the deck area. 7. It (they) must be entered between Noon and 2:00 PM. 8. Right after 2pm, the WNAP jocks will make the rounds and pick the top three coolest raft race photos ever, with third, second and first place winners.9. The WNAP jocks will judge the winner using whatever criteria they want. The decision of the judges will be final.

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

Public invited to White River Yacht Club Festival

The White River Yacht Club, a private club on the White River north of Broad Ripple for more than 75 years, will welcome the public for an open house and festival on Saturday, Aug. 23, from noon to 11 p.m. The festival features live music, arts and crafts vendors, kids’ activities, live and silent auctions, door prizes, food booths and cash bars. The Aberdeen Project band will perform from 8 p.m. to 11 p.m. The club traces its roots to 1938, when a small group of boaters created the North White River Club. The club held its first meetings in members’ homes and docked boats at the Old Green City Boathouse near Broad Ripple Park or at docks of members living along the river. In 1947, the club changed its name to the White River Yacht Club and took up residence at the present 12-acre site, known as Smith Island. Members restored the summer home located on the grounds, doing the work themselves and financing the first mortgages. Today, boaters and landlubbers alike enjoy the club for its restaurant and bar, social activities and boat docks. Through October, the club hosts live music on evenings that are open to the public every other Thursday. White River Yacht Club Festival, Saturday, Aug. 23, noon to 11 p.m., White River Yacht Club, 1400 E. 74th Street, FREE admission. INFO: www.WRYC.net, 317-251-0344

New Juror Scam Seeks Personal Data

A new juror scam email, which fraudulently seeks personal information that could aid identity theft, has been reported in at least 14 federal court districts. According to the Administrative Office of the U.S. Courts, citizens received emails claiming they had been selected for jury service and demanding that they return a form with such information as Social Security and driver’s license numbers, date of birth, cell phone number, and mother’s maiden name. According to the email, anyone who failed to provide the information would be ordered to court to explain their failure, and could face fines and jail time. The email also falsely claimed that it was affiliated with eJuror, an online registration program used in about 80 U.S. court districts. The email is fraudulent and has no connection to either the federal courts or to eJuror. The Administrative Office noted that eJuror never requests that personal identification information be sent directly in an email response. Requests by courts to complete a qualification questionnaire would be initiated by formal written correspondence. Such letters tell jury participants how to access an authenticated, secure online connection. U.S. District Court officials were urged to post warnings about the scam on their public web sites, and anyone suspecting a fraudulent email or call should contact the clerk’s office at their nearest district court. Anyone who responded to the email should take appropriate steps to safeguard their personal and financial information, which may include contacting the major credit bureaus. To learn more about juror scams, see this U.S. Courts web page, and this video. Contact information for courts can be found via the U.S. Courts’ court locator.

A equals N

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 6 in the easy puzzle in the right section of the top row that contains 1-3-5. The 6 in the middle section of the top row eliminates the two spaces to the right of the 1. The 6 in the right section of the top row eliminates the spaces on both sides of the 5. The 6 in the left section of the bottom row eliminates the spaces above and below the 1. The only space left is directly to the left of the 3. You have now learned one technique needed to solve Sudoku puzzles. There are many more.

News from the Farmer’s Market: The Originals This column we celebrate some original founding vendors at the Broad Ripple Farmers Market back in 1996. Six farmers set up shop that summer in the Broad Ripple Brewpub parking lot:




lm lco

Lee’s Orchard features peaches and pears this week Joshua Lee is an original Farmers Market vendor. The Columbus-based farmer is featuring Red Haven peaches this week as well as the Canadian Harmony variety. Last year was a better year for peaches, he noted. The cold weather this year made it a tough year for peaches this season. He also grows and sells small potatoes and dessert pears (stark delicious and another variety). Cassie Anderson is now engaged to Joshua. She tells Round the Ripple that she had to “eat her weight in apples” at the Market in order to get asked out by him. It worked and they will be married this fall. It’s a Broad Ripple romance, Market style. You can read all about the orchard including the history at www.leesorchard.com. by

Earthly Delights has great vegetables Liz Chapman of Earthly Delights is another Market pioneer. She too has been at the Market since 1996. She sells vegetables at the market. Like peaches, tomatoes have been a challenge this summer. Some like it hot! But the cool summer has hurt the tomato crop. They are not ripening fast enough. Tomatoes like hot nights, too. Daily Blossom has had flowers and plants since day one Flower seller Nancy Barton also has been at the Market since 1996. She sells cut and potted flowers and plants at the Market. Her stand started in 1995 at the Rocky Ripple Farmers Market and then moved to the Brewpub (with John Hill). From 1996 to today, she has been selling flowers at the market. Thanks to all the vendors who make our Farmers Market the best!

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

Fizzy Fringey Fun! August arrives with its usual roller coaster ride of heat and humidity. Which makes my palate further crave the crisp, clean and affordable flavor of Prosecco. The grape is Glera, and most of the sparkling wine called Prosecco comes from the Friuli and Veneto regions of Italy. Last week I sampled two while discussing upcoming wine and theater events. The first was the crisp, dry, sleek Ornella Molon Prosecco. Aromas and flavors of almond and vanilla in the glass added even more enjoyment to my conversation about the upcoming November wine and food tasting event for the Ronald McDonald House of Indiana. The yearly event is a “Journey of Tastes” and this year it offers the varied and versatile wines of France. I loved sipping a lively Italian wine while anticipating what is one of the most all encompassing and inviting wine and food events of the year in Indianapolis. Find a bottle of Ornella Molon Prosecco for less than $15 at local wine stores. Get your tickets before they sell out to “Taste” at www.rmh-indiana.org I love the Barefoot wines. They are inexpensive, refreshing and widely available. The Barefoot Bubbly Prosecco is pure pleasure. As is the upcoming WFYI Documentary The Fringe Factor which airs on WFYI TV on Tuesday August 12th at 9pm. It’s a hilarious and historic look back at the ten years of the Indy Fringe Festival and theater. AND the documentary is produced by long time Broad Ripple native and Emmy Award winning producer Gary Harrison. Indy Fringe continues to be one of the most successful arts organizations in the city. The documentary is captivating and entertaining. A bottle of Barefoot Bubbly would be the perfect compliment to drink as you watch it next week. More info on The Fringe Factor at www.indyfringe.org NV Ornella Molon Extra-Dry Prosecco, Veneto, Italy–clean, sleek fizzy fun. Hints of almond and vanilla on the dry finish. Serve it with almonds, olives and prosciutto. Barefoot Bubbly, Prosecco, Italy–hints of citrus and minerals with just enough teeny tiny bubbles to make each sip pure pleasure. Serve with a variety of cheeses or just sip on its own. Great value!! Jill A.

You know, it is such a true fact that no one should/could/can judge anyone until they have walked in his/her shoes. And who really has walked in any one person’s shoes? Probably no one ever, really. Yet many are quite fast to judge others even so. Let’s start this conversation on the topic of weight loss for example. People that are overweight….hmmmm chances are sure they damn well KNOW it. Stop teasing them, whispering about them, thinking they are lazy, think they don’t care about their lives; etc. Let’s put this even on a higher level…. These people, as which every other addiction on the planet, most likely, have a deeper problem that is likely perpetuating these behaviors they are not happy about. HOWEVER, it is way more apparent, physically than say an alcoholic, a sex addict, a pot head or many other addictions. More so, they have an affliction that they also cannot “quit”. You need to eat to stay alive. You do not NEED alcohol, pot, or sex to live; but you need to eat. This is something one truly cannot quit or they ultimately will die. So, these people face truly two difficult battles. One: the physical judgment by others and Two: the addiction that is likely very public (as others are watching and judging what those struggling are eating, etc.). It is an easy answer for some people that don’t understand these (or other) struggles; it’s black and white: “Eat better or just exercise more.” for example. But obviously that is not the real problem! The issue lies way deeper as is does with every addiction. No matter what kind. No one is truly hungry enough to weigh 400 lbs.; No one needs to drink a lot of alcohol, no one needs to run 10 miles a day, etc. But for whatever reason, in human nature, we find all types of people, having all types of escapes. We all have a proverbial “Achilles heel” whether it be crazy obvious to the world or not at all (yes you probably do too). Those that have the obvious ones are way more vulnerable than others. The main point here is: please don’t judge. If someone is overweight they aren’t necessarily lazy. If someone isn’t overweight they aren’t necessarily very driven. Better put: if someone is wearing some shoes that seem funny or “wrong” to you… please stop yourself; cause chances are you probably don’t deserve to walk in them.

Right in my Own B a c k y a r d by Brandt Carter It’s on our Minds What is happening to our Village? When I was growing up, the most serious offense was jaywalking. Oh my, how times have changed! My first visits to Broad Ripple were to shop for necessities at the A&P (see photo below), school supplies at Stationers, dresses at Blocks, eating at Borky’s, a haircut, doctor and orthodontist appointments. This was the commercial hub

The A&P signs coming down in 1977. (This building is now Thr3e Wise Men)

for all the families moving to Washington Township (the boundary was Kessler Boulevard). Migrating families depended on Broad Ripple, for without it they had to go downtown for shopping or to Fall Creek for Galyan’s grocery or the Lotus Gardens Restaurant at Town and Country. Retail had not caught up with the move to the suburbs. Broad Ripple has ebbed and flowed with changing demands of the people. Reading early literature, I learned saw mills, hardware stores, grist mills, livery stables, Kingan’s ice houses, schools, churches, and even gas drilling wells lined the Canal. During the ‘40s and ‘50s, car dealerships, schools, a post office, dress shops, groceries, medical offices, ice cream and dime stores, banks, drug stores, plus a few restaurants populated the Village. Broad Ripple teemed with development. Fast forward to 2014. Our safe, family-oriented, neighborhood-protected Village seems to be under siege. There are serious questions to be asked and answers to be sought. What is happening to our family-friendly environment that has long catered to the community? What can each of us who frequent Broad Ripple for its quality and tradition do? What core strengths can be reinforced to fortify our future? What’s been done elsewhere that may provide help for us? How can night violence be stopped? Look, Broad Ripple can be traced back to 1816 …almost 200 years. Did you know in 1906, the Village sought to be annexed into Indianapolis with the hope of getting relief from a $750 debt incurred in closing five saloons because of a Washington Township remonstrance? Have bars become the issue once again? Broad Ripple tried multiple times to become part of Indianapolis. It was not until June 20, 1922 that this was accomplished. We want folks from Indianapolis to visit the Village, but we don’t want them to destroy it. Here’s hoping we can mobilize for the good of all. Broad Ripple is far too rich in history to be compromised by recent tragedies. Brandt Carter, artist, herbalist, and naturalist, owns Backyard Birds at 2374 E. 54th Street.
