Broad Ripple Village Association’s


Michael Graves attended the schools that my father, my uncle and I attended–School 80 (Class of 1948) and Broad Ripple High School (Class of 1952). Michael designed Broad Ripple’s Indianapolis Art Center. He also designed the Thomson Consumer Electronics (now Technicolor) buildings at 103rd and Meridian Street where I worked for many years. He designed buildings at Walt Disney World. Below is the notice from Michael Graves Architecture & Design of his recent death. –Alan Hague, editor

It is with deep sadness that Michael Graves Architecture & Design (MGA&D) announces the firm’s Founding Principal Michael Graves has passed away today, suddenly and peacefully, of natural causes. He was in his home in Princeton, New Jersey. Since founding the firm in 1964, Michael transformed the role of architects and designers, and even the place of design in our everyday lives. For those of us who had the opportunity to work closely with Michael, we knew him as an extraordinary designer, teacher, mentor and friend. For the countless students that he taught for more than 40 years, Michael was an inspiring professor who encouraged everyone to find their unique design voice. Of all of his accomplishments, Michael often said that, like his own family, his proudest creation was his firm. As we go forward in our practice, we will continue to honor Michael’s humanistic design philosophy through our commitment to creating unique design solutions that transform people’s lives. Michael and the firm are proud of longstanding relationships with great clients including Humana, Alessi, Target Stores, The Walt Disney Company, Stryker, Kimberly-Clark, Miele, Madonna Rehabilitation Hospital, the GSA, the New York School Construction Authority, The Newark Museum, the Detroit Institute of Arts, Rice University, and University of Cincinnati. Michael Graves has received prestigious awards including the AIA Gold Medal, the National Medal of Arts from President photo courtesy of MGA&D Clinton, and the Topaz Medallion from the AIA/ACSA. Michael is the 2012 Richard H. Driehaus Prize Laureate. Michael Graves has become internationally recognized as a healthcare design advocate, with the Center for Health Design naming him one of the Top 25 Most Influential People in Healthcare Design. In 2013, President Obama appointed Graves to the United States Access Board. MGA&D recently celebrated its 50th anniversary with a major exhibition at the Grounds For Sculpture in Hamilton, NJ, which is on view until April 5. In addition, Michael’s contribution to design was celebrated by the Architectural League with a daylong symposium at Parsons New School for Design. The American Institute of Architects acknowledged Michael’s career with a Presidential Citation. Fast Company just named MGA&D one of the 10 most innovative design firms in the world.

Student Painters, LLC By Mario Morone

mario@broadripplegazette.com If your residence needs exterior painting, a solution is just a phone call away from Broad Ripple Magnet High School alumni Austin Wills. “Student Painters, LLC is mainly an internship program through Young Entrepreneurs Across America (YEAA), its parent company. YEAA is an organization that gives students the tools to become America’s next great entrepreneurs through the medium of running his or her own painting company while simultaneously helping them earn tuition for their academic years. They’re based in Shelby Township, Michigan and have recently expanded to Arizona and Colorado, but are located mostly in the Midwest (Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Minnesota, Missouri, Ohio, Tennessee, West Virginia and Wisconsin). Their business model has a high success rate with house painting, not just for aesthetics, but for entrepreneurial experience while providing a service to the community,” he said. This year the team started out as 76 interns, led by professionals, that are each assigned a territory. “My territory is the 46220 zip code area of Broad Ripple that also extends to the east of this community. For training this past fall, we went to seminars to learn more about the business and how to be successful as a painter and businessman. Spring is our marketing season when we network, send fliers, and cold call potential customers. May is when our production season begins. We start right after we get out of school and our last day is September 10. We usually stop around August, but if there are additional customers that have houses to paint, students return on weekends to finish up the work. We do mostly exterior house painting and staining – house trim, shutters, garages, fences, decks, barns and detached garages. It’s a painting company that I run that provides a good service to the communities and helps me pay for college,” explained Wills, who is completing his sophomore year at Indiana University. A local resident from the area, Wills excelled in various extra-curricular activities in middle school and at Broad Ripple Magnet High School, where he graduated. “I started out at Shortridge Middle School playing piano and violin in their orchestra. At BRMHS, I ran track and played tennis my sophomore and junior years and acted in the musical Bye, Bye Birdie during my sophomore year. When I was in high school, I also did photography and was interested in learning how to run a company in case the opportunity arose down the road,” he said. Wills also served as junior

and senior class president while a member of the National Honor Society. Student Painters can be found in almost every major city in Indiana. “It depends on where the interns are located. We have at least one manager in every city surrounding Indianapolis and are also in Lafayette, Fort Wayne, Bloomington, and South Bend areas, he noted. “We are different from other painting companies in many ways. We hire actual college students and provide them with paint training classes around the state of Indiana where we brush up on our skills. All paints come from Sherwin-Williams and have a product warranty as well as a one-year warranty with the company. Student Painters also carries $1 million liability insurance as well as full workers-compensation where a lot of companies don’t provide any insurance,” Wills mentioned. After a prospective customer calls their local branch or submits an on-line form to the main office, they are contacted by a local branch manager for an appointment and provided a free, written estimate. After signing a contract, requiring a 20 percent deposit, a time is scheduled when power washing the house occurs, one to two weeks before painting begins. Scraping, sanding (done by hand), and caulking (where necessary) are done before a primer is applied and painting begins. After completion, Student Painters and their customers inspect their work with the homeowner before the job is done. Testimonials can be read at: www.studentpainters.biz/student/testimonials/parent-testimonials. Matt Sumner is a Regional Manager of YEAA and works with Wills. “I was interviewed and offered a branch manager position with Student Painters during my sophomore year at Purdue. During that fall and into the winter, I was trained in a classroom setting ultimately on how to run my own venture. At the time, I had never had any field experience with entrepreneurship, so learning how to run a business was a lot of fun but took more hard work, perseverance, and determination than anything I had ever done. In the end, this program has given me more opportunity, resume-building skills, and real-world experience than anything else I have ever done.” “I am going into my third year with Student Painters and will graduate from Purdue in May. This summer, it is my job to oversee most of the northern Indianapolis production and provide all of the branch managers with the training necessary to run a business. Additionally, I monitor the quality of our work to ensure a quality control for each job. I am excited to see our managers transform from traditional college students to successful entrepreneurs in over the next few months,” Sumner added. The abilities and skills learned by these college students and Sumner through YEAA can be implemented in various capacities throughout their careers. Interested families and individuals can find more information at www. studentpainters.biz where you can get more information and see a gallery of some past jobs. They can also call their national phone line 1-888-839-3385 where homeowners are asked for their zip code before forwarding the information on the branch manager for that area. Those in the Broad Ripple community can contact Wills directly at 443-9302. Austin Wills and Matt Sumner’s entrepreneurial project with Student Painters provides a valuable community service to homeowners in the Broad Ripple area and beyond.

Happy springtime! Even though the temperature is in the 20s as I type, I know that this can’t last forever, right? My favorite marker of warmer weather and the neighborhood waking up from the winter slumber is Record Store Day on April 18 – mark your calendars! In the meantime, read on for other lovely musical events happening on our neighborhood and the city.

March Madness Music Festival Friday, April 3 – Sunday, April 5 White River State Park 801 W Washington St. - free, all-ages, non-ticketed

Even if you don’t have tickets to the big games, you can experience the excitement with this series of free shows.

Friday, April 3 We deliver 7000 copies to over 210 locations Imagine Dragons, Weezer, Cold War Kids on the north side every two weeks. 3:00 – 10:00 PM

Rates start as low as $15 per issue for directory page ads. 4” x 5” ads are as low as $68 per issue.

I’ve been lucky enough to see all of these bands before and I’m looking forward to seeing them again. All three are good solid rock bands. You might know Imagine Dragons from their hit a few years ago, “Radioactive.” They are on tour promoting their new record. I feel like an old geezer for telling you that I saw Weezer in Philadelphia in 1994, I loved them then and I love ‘em now! Cold War Kids (pictured below) are fun and energetic and you’ll find yourself dancing along.

Saturday, April 4 Bleachers, Passion Pit, Rihanna noon – 9:30 PM

In addition to the excellent lineup of music, they will be streaming the first of the semi-final games on the big stage screen. Music - 2:30: Bleachers, 4:00: Passion Pit, 8:15: Rihanna This lineup has something for everyone – a newer band getting lots of attention, a solid fan favorite, and the woman that has the most-ever YouTube video views. Bleachers is led by Jack Antonoff, a Grammy-winning songwriter (fun, Taylor Swift), while Jack has been performing for over a decade, this band is a newer venture for him. Pop band, Passion Pit has a passionate following that not only has to do with their great songs, but leads singer’s vocals and stage presences doesn’t hurt also. I can’t tell you anything about Rihanna that you can’t find elsewhere. I know that the pop mega-star will put on an amazing show.

Sunday, April 5 Cole Swindell, Kacey Musgraves, Lady Antebellum, Zac Brown Band 2:00 – 10:00 PM

The Easter Sunday lineup is full of rock and country and country rock. Cole Swindell spent years selling merchandise for his college buddy Luke Bryan and writing songs for other folks. He started his solo career in 2013 and has taken off. His debut record has sold over one million singles. Kacey Musgraves won the 2014 Grammy for Best Country Song and Album. Lady Antebellum has won too many Grammy’s to list. I’m looking forward to seeing the Zac Brown Band. Whenever I see one of their performances on an award show I am drawn to their infectious songs and they always look like they’re having a blast. If you can’t make it to the shows, ATT U-verse will be streaming it live: Uverse. com/ATTBlockParty. Be sure that you check the NCAA March Madness Musicfest website for list of restricted items and what types of handbags that can be taken into the park.

Hi Alan - I want to pass on to you my pleasure of reading the issues of The Broad Ripple Gazette when they hit the stands, and have been doing so since they first started to be published. I am particularly interested in the historical features presented in the publication as I have lived a lifetime in the Broad Ripple area, as well as being a product of BRHS, and this brings back many memories of my earlier days. Your question posed in the current issue (Mar 6 - Mar 19) regarding the little old building that is to be razed triggered my memory and may or may not be associated with one memory that I have regarding an occasional purchase my family would make for a meal. I remember that we would all hop in our 1936 Chevy Coach and head for 62nd and College where we would park and then proceed walking North across a wooden bridge that spanned the canal (former Interurban Traction bridge, not for vehicles). Immediately after crossing the bridge, we would make a half-right turn and walk back toward some houses. In that area was a man called “Browny” that raised rabbits and sold them dressed ready for cooking. After we made that turn to go to Browny’s, my memory stops there and I do not recall exactly were his home was or the setting, so it is possible that your “little Old Building” might have been his and for the purpose of raising rabbits. Just Maybe. Actually, I would think that your Dad would surely remember “Browny”. Keep up the excellent work with the “Gazette”. You have a winning publication. Jim Keyler

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 seven Cultural Districts recognized by the City of Indianapolis. We try to let you know what is going on in the other districts as we can. One question I often get is how an article gets into the Gazette. We do not accept payment for articles. Article subjects are picked by me for inclusion based on the interest to the residents and visitors to the Broad Ripple area. Since this is a bi-weekly paper, we will not be able to cover news as it happens. Rather, our focus is on issues that are not time sensitive. You will probably never see these stories anywhere else, so getting them a week or so later will be much better than not at all. We try to include a new/ recently opened business or long-time business feature article in each issue. I have hundreds of stories planned, but if there is something you want to read about, please let us know. I think you will enjoy the Gazette. I know I enjoy bringing it to you. -Alan Hague

The Broad Ripple Gazette

Apr 3 - Apr 16, 2015

Howling at the Moon by Susan Smith

Because I am a Broad Ripple business owner it makes sense I take interest in the business of Broad Ripple. I get a lot of my information right here in this paper especially with regard to zoning issues. So it was with great interest that I have followed the Gazette columns and photos of a local business, Fine Estate Art and Rugs which moved from 59th and College last January to the vacant building at 42nd and Broadway that was formerly an Indianapolis Public Library. I had the pleasure of meeting owner Curt Churchman last fall after I moved my business into the next block north on College. I went in to introduce myself as his new neighbor and we conducted business as well. I had a print from an Indiana artist that I wasn’t sure had any value and in addition I told him that I was the one who recommended him to my friend who did have valuable paintings that he bought. That put me on his email list. From that I learned of his move and his concerns if his gallery could get a variance for its new location. He asked for support at the March 3rd hearing so I decided to go especially after reading this paper’s coverage. It was reported here that the Department of Metropolitan Development staff recommended approval stating “The petitioner indicates the retail portion of the operation would be low impact, with an average of no more than 15 customers on any given day. With the minimal number of customers, staff would compare this operation favorably to a commercial office, permitted within the C-1 zoning district, which also permits a day care center, similar to the previous use”. Most recently Kaleidoscope Youth Center (current owners of the building) served the community youth here with after-school and summer programs providing a safe and educational environment. KYC, after several years of operation, due to the loss of funding by United Way and the recession, closed the door leaving the building vacant. The zoning problems surfaced when the Meridian Kessler Neighborhood Association Land Use Committee voted not to support the zoning request. Their explanation is on MKNA.org but the summary is that they have been very active in keeping the former library a community serving facility and feel that it would be a neighborhood loss to allow the property to become a commercial use. They expressed concern that “there is very little space reserved for these special uses”. A later Gazette issue featured a follow-up with an interview with Curt Churchman about his gallery plans. From that interview I decided I wanted to go to the hearing and see how this would play out. I am a MKNA resident. I cast my hat in the ring to support a low traffic, low impact business on a neighborhood street that for more than 50 years has had activity. I don’t like empty buildings so I’m not much on “reserving” buildings for “special use”. So I went and I sat in the back under the radar. At least 50 MKNA folk came to show they didn’t want the variance approved. There were attorneys, letters of support and individuals who shared concerns. Realtors opined that a commercial use of the building would lessen property values or that a low impact business would enhance values by not having an empty building sitting by. The Director of Kaleidoscope stated they had offered the building to St. Joan of Arc, United Way, Lilly Endowment and others to no avail and Churchman had the highest bid. If they didn’t get the variance and couldn’t sell it they couldn’t afford to keep it. They said they had interest from a coffee shop and a brewery and they felt an art gallery and rug dealer would be a good fit. It was mentioned that language had been recrafted that if the gallery left, the variance would revert back to SU-37 (special use library). It was pointed out that the current library gets 400 visits a day while this business would be less than 15. Speakers stated the importance of having a youth center. The surprise was the representative from St. Joan of Arc who appeared and said they are sincerely interested in this property. Where were they earlier? Kaleidoscope stated if they didn’t get the variance how long would it take for the church to move and what price would they be left having to accept thus eroding their funds further. MKNA wants to help youth groups not harm them. We learned that it was a divided vote by the MKNA board to deny support (5 to 4). In the end it was not a divided vote by the zoning board. They voted unanimously to deny the variance. This means the gallery needs to find a new home. Folks cheered on media sites later in the day. Why? Were they opposed to having class and culture next door to the library and School? It was mentioned that a T.C. Steel painting had been sold from the gallery for $30,000. I was really surprised that the zoning board went that direction since the staff recommended approval. I overheard two men behind me talking and asking how

long the building will remain vacant. Then I came home and read the related article in the Broad Ripple Community Newsletter by Joshua Deisler. He tells of meeting with Churchman and learning of his involvement with the community which includes author presentations, painting demonstrations, community meetings as well as donating time, materials and expertise to IPS School 84 and the Riviera Club. He tells how Churchman planed to take down the fence and preserve the adjacent playground for the neighborhood use and how he planed to open his building for community use. He quotes him as saying “We are inherently a community use. We certainly feel like we’re neighborhood serving”. What a class act. How could he have lost the variance in order to put a building on hold until another not-for-profit organization ponies up? The Girls’ Club sat vacant at 40th and Central for years. It was mentioned at the hearing that an art gallery with handmade rugs brings stability. There is no fear of grant funding being cut. It is said “a bird in the hand is worth two in the bush”.

Clue: K 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 try to put a 6 in the center section of the top row of the easy puzzle that contains the 2-3-4-9. The 6 in the left section of the top row eliminates the spaces to the right of the 9. The 6 in the left section of the top row eliminates the space between the 3-2. The 6 in the middle section of the bottom row eliminates the spaces above the 2. The only space left is to the left of the 4. You have now learned a technique used to solve Sudoku puzzles. There are many more.

BRVA March land use & zoning meeting By Alan Hague

Chairperson Jim Holland called the meeting to order at 6:05pm. There were three items on the agenda. 1) 6265 Broadway Street, David Kingen, Greg Stoll, regarding changes to this property. Hearing continued to April 9 This item was for information only, to describe recent changes to the project. This proposal to build multi-story condos along the north bank of the canal behind the CVS has

been before the committee several times. Changes since the last time include reducing the project from five to three condo units. This also fixes the setback of the buildings from Broadway Street, eliminating the need for a setback variance on that property line. The project will also not need a height variance, as the highest portion of one building is 37 feet. The project would still vacate the section of Laverock between the condos and the canal (from Broadway east to the alley behind CVS). The committee discussed the project and these changes were enough for some to support the project, while others still had concerns. A streetscape rendering was requested by the committee so the members could get a better look at how the condos will fit in with the existing homes along Broadway. Before the April 9 hearing downtown, the committee is expected to take an electronic vote to support, oppose, or take no stand on the issue. 2) 6181 Carrollton Avenue, Sam Snell, Realtor, regarding a variance of use to provide for office uses. Petition # 2015-UV1-010 Hearing Tuesday, April 7 This item was before the committee last month as an information-only item. Now it has been filed with the Department of Metropolitan Development and the BRVA committee can take a vote. No changes were made since the previous presentation. This is for a small real estate business to go into a home at 61st and Carrollton. The committee made it clear that it is the rule of the City of Indianapolis and of the BRVA that no commercial development occur south of 62nd Street in the Village, except along College. This property is right on that line, so it could be allowed. The committee voted to support this petition. 3) 6528 Cornell Avenue, Samantha Hargitt, Real Estate Associate, regarding a variance of use to legally establish an Athletic Annex retail business at this location with new signage. Expected date of hearing April 21 before the Board of Zoning Appeals. This item is for the new store in the house to the north of La Piedad. It had previously been a small office. It is not zoned for retail. The owners of the Athletic Annex described the business and how it would fit the Monon Trail location. The committee voted to support this petition. The next public meeting the committee is scheduled for April 28 at 6pm at the Indianapolis Art Center, 820 67th Street [A4 on map].

Last year at Plump’s Last Shot, 6416 Cornell Avenue [D5 on map], on St. Patrick’s day I met a gorgeous little Bulldog puppy named Ruby. She appeared in the Gazette at that time. A year later on St. Patrick’s weekend Ruby, now a beautiful grown up girl, came to see me again. Isn’t she gorgeous? Later that day the other beauty that I posted in the Gazette last St. Patrick’s day, Rosie, came to see me. Butler is not the only place to see Bulldogs.....try the deck at Plump’s! Of course Dallas, the Great Dane, not to be left out, represented his breed by kissing the tallest Leprechaun in Broad Ripple. Does anyone have a towel?

& 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 fifty-fifth installment:

More voters petition against the ordinance for the traction company Broad Ripple Ind. Apr. 7th 1903 The Board of Trustees of the Trustees of the Town of Broad Ripple met in regular session. All members present. The minutes of Mch 3rd 1903 and the minutes of the special meeting of Apr 3rd 1903 were read and approved. The following bills were read and allowed and orders drawn on the treasurer for the respective accounts Geo B. Melick #30.10 Standard Oil Co $6.88 The Treasurer made his annual report showing the balance on hand May 14th 1902 $184.15. The receipts for the year including the balance $1254.86. The total expenditures for the year to be $816.66, Leaving the balance on hand to date and on hand in the treasury to be $443.66 and on motion of M. Whitsel seconded by J.O. White, the report was accepted and approved. On regular motion and second the Board adjourned. C.L. Kirk clerk L.W Silvey president

Broad Ripple Ind. Apr. 18th 1903 The Board of Trustees of the Town of Broad Ripple, Indiana, met in special session on the call of the president C.W. Silvey who stated the purpose of the meeting to be to take action on the petitions for and against the question of submitting the franchise granted to the Indianapolis Northern Traction Co. for a referendum vote. And the clerk presented a petition which had been filed with him asking for a referendum vote over the franchise of the Indianapolis Northern Traction Co. and which is as follows To the Board of Trustees of the Town of Broad Ripple Marion County Indiana Charles W. Silvey, President C.L. Kirk, Clerk Gentlemen:We, the undersigned voters of the town of Broad Ripple, Marion County, Ind. Bring more than Forty Percent (40%) of the voters of such town hereby demand a referendum of an ordinance entitles “An Ordinance granting the Indianapolis Northern Traction Company, its successors and assigns, authority to construct, maintain and operate an interurban street railroad over, along and upon certain streets in the town of Broad Ripple, in the county of Marion and State of Indiana.” Which ordinance according to its terms was ordained and established by the

Board of Trustees of the town of Broad Ripple, Marion County, Ind. The 3rd day of April, 1903, and signed by Charles W. Silvey, President. Attested by C.L. Kirk, Clerk, having impressed there the seal of the town of Broad Ripple, Indiana. We hereby certify that we are legal voters of the town of Broad Ripple, Indiana duly qualified as such voters and that we have in person hereto attached our signatures and we ask that this matter be submitted to the voters of the town of Broad Ripple at the coming election, under the provisions of an act entitled “An act vesting a right in the voters of any incorporated town in the State of Indiana to, by a petition, refer any ordinance, agreement, contract, or measure enacted or proposed by the Board of Trustees of any incorporated town of this State to a vote of the voters of such town, and to reject the same by ballot; to prescribe the manner of holding such election, and provide punishment for all offenders against the provisions of this act and declaring an emergency.” Which act was approved March 2nd, 1899, and appears in the act of 1899 of the Legislature of Indiana as Chapter ___ on page 216 of said acts. And we ask that this be referred to the voters of the said town for the following reasons, among others: 1. That the rights of the citizens of the said town are not in any manners protected in said ordinance, 2. That there is no provision compelling the said railroad company to stop cars within the limits of the town of Broad Ripple, 3. That there is no provision fixing the fares to be charged by said company either in the town of Broad Ripple or from the town of Broad Ripple to the city of Indianapolis, or any other place, 4. For the reason that the said ordinance permits the said company to run the trains through the residence part of the town of Broad Ripple at a speed of twenty (20) miles per hour, which speed is excessively dangerous to the lives of the citizens of the said town, and especially to the children of said town, in the opinion of your petitioners, 5. For the further reason that the said ordinance does not provide for the paving of the part of the street occupied by the said railroad company , at the expense of said company, 6. For the further reason that the said ordinance does not provide for any special license for or tax upon the said street railroad for the use of its right of way within said town 7. For the further reason that so much of said right of way as is on Shelby Street and Light Avenue is now already occupied by a double track of the present Broad Ripple Traction Company’s line of street railroad, and to place another line of street railroad upon the same streets would be dangerous to the people of said town.

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

Wines for the Easter or Passover Table If you’re still getting your wines together for Easter and Passover, there are plenty of affordable and tasty NEW choices on the market. Plus some tried and true favorites. The Kosher wine industry continues to grow and there are plenty of wineries right here in the USA, along with countries around the world offering much more than your Grandfather’s Mogen-David. Jeunesse Pink Moscato–lightly pink and softly sweet California offering. The Tribe White-dry, fruity Chardonnay from Dry Creek Valley in California. Baron Herzog Cabernet Sauvignon–Paso Robles region dry red brimming with notes of black cherry. Carmel Ridge Red–Gorgeous, elegant, dry red blend of Carignan, Petite Syrah, Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon from Israel.

Random Ripplings

Edward Jones is open at 5209 College Avenue [PP23]. This is the Clark Building, where City Dogs Grocery was most recently.

Easter menus that include ham or lamb will love these tasty affordable finds. And if you are serving brunch, don’t miss this terrific sparkler from California. Barefoot Wines Sparkling Pinot Grigio–light, crisp, semi dry with notes of citrus. Blend it with OJ for a HOPPY Easter morning beverage. Apothic White–off dry blend of pinot grigio, chardonnay and riesling will please just about any palate and item on the table whether its pineapple glazed ham, baked sweet potatoes or grilled asparagus. Gascon Malbec–Big, juicy Argentinian red that will add depth and flavor to your ham, lamb or beef. It’s also terrific with chocolate in case the Easter Bunny fills your basket with dark or milk chocolate treats. 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. Send your questions and comments to Jill at jill@broadripplegazette.com

Broad Ripple Museum From time to time we will display items that have been donated to preserve the history of Broad Ripple.

This matchbook is from Jules Medias. The men’s store was at 850 Broad Ripple Avenue in the 60’s. This is where Ripple Bagel & Deli is today [H4 on map].

by Laura Minor

While doing my daily scroll on Facebook I came upon an article entitled “Does cardio make you fat? Study says yes.” Of course this was intriguing to me so I gave it a look. According to this article, cardio causes hormonal changes that lends to fat storage in the body. And it also states that sustained intensity aerobic exercise causes the body to become more efficient and hence burns fewer calories at a given pace; not to mention muscle loss leading to a slower metabolism. The last sentence of the article reads: “If you want to lose fat you need to increase your metabolism by lifting weights and signal your body to burn fat with short high intensity burst or sprints.” I am not going to argue with the science as it has in fact been proven that doing cardio alone for prolonged sessions without strength training can result in the above mentioned. And I also agree that strength training is a great tool for muscle health and fat control. Yet, it seems that in recent years cardio has become the redheaded step child to the honor student of strength training. What it fails to mention the vast amount of benefits of cardiovascular exercise, and that it should be a part of a healthy exercise regimen, in combination with strength training. If you go to a gym, next time look around. You will typically see two types of people: Cardio-junkies and Weight-lifters. By and large these groups hardly mingle and “share” areas of the gym. Those pumping away on a treadmill rarely hit the free weights, and the opposite scenario is even more common. God forbid a body builder sacrifice their precious muscle to do a cardio session for improved heart health. Or god forbid a woman lift a 10 pound weight for fear of getting bulky (right). First I would like to defend my beloved cardio exercise. Along with massive benefits to controlling cholesterol, blood sugar and blood pressure, cardio has an amazing effect on one’s mood. When I end my daily run, I normally feel energized and accomplished. It also reduces risk of heart disease and some forms of cancer, improves lung function, increases bone density, reduces stress, and improves sleep, just to mention a few. And for many, such as those in a running or cycling group, it has created life-long friendships. That being said, you CAN have too much of a good thing. Excessive cardio can lead to fatigue, joint pain, decreased muscle mass and metabolism, and increased stress hormone. However, the same is true for excessive strength training. This would include slow or no progress, tendonitis, weakened immune system and joint pain as well. The main point I am trying to make is similar to many things in life. Don’t look at either type of exercise as all or nothing. Just as it isn’t a “fat free” or “carb free” world, it isn’t ideal for weight loss to only do cardio or only do strength training. If you run the same pace, or lift the same amount of weight yes, your body will adapt. So, the key is to mix it up. Unless you are preparing for a body building competition or training for a marathon, add variety to your workouts to keep the body IN-efficient and therefore resulting in burning more calories. Combine aerobic (cardio) training along with anaerobic (strength) training for the best mental and physical results! Lastly, I disagree with the statement “cardio can make you fat”. It should much more accurately read “crappy food and sedentary lifestyle can make you fat”. If you look at endurance athletes, clearly cardio did not cause them to become overweight. I agree that the study’s findings are interesting, but I fear it could lead certain people to justify NOT doing cardio because it would “Make” them fat. Laura Minor owner and operator of So.Be.Fit.

Right in my Own B a c k y a r d by Brandt Carter Let Good Times Roll Come on now, let’s all celebrate and have a good time! Do you remember that song “Celebrate” by Kool and The Gang? This could be my theme song. Yes, I think we have to be reminded to celebrate each day, each month, each season. I have just found a new place to celebrate. Have you been to The Cake Bake Shop? Oh, my goodness! My first time visiting the cakery was enchanting. With pink, crystals, silver, and sparkle everywhere, I kept thinking any minute Tinker Bell or Cinderella would stop by my table that was laced with pink and white balloons. The following week I visited often, stacking up my pink boxes and not even wanting to throw the containers away. I was celebrating a fundraiser and hopeful end of winter. Yes, that fundraiser for Canine Companions for Independence for which I am a puppy raiser was a huge celebration too. The gala at the Scottish Rite Cathedral featured dinner, concert, silent auction, testimonials, service dogs, and good company. The Indy Chapter was celebrating all the good work local puppy raisers do and the miracles Canine Companions facilitates by providing service dogs for free to people with other than sighted disabilities. It was a joyous occasion. Each day I celebrate. You know it doesn’t have to be a birthday, wedding, or huge party. Every day as I leave home, I read the sign just above my screen door: “Make It A Good Day!” It’s my mission each day to celebrate, make a memory, or give a positive message to people with whom I come in contact. As the years pass, I realize the positives and the celebrations are important in our lives. They help us look forward; they help us thrive. Some of my most fun celebrations have happened in my backyard-- birthdays, garden blooming, a newly dedicated tree house, welcoming a fire pit, sandcastle day, doggy swim day, apple Canine Companion Puppies celebrating summer in the picking, and gathering nature backyard! finds for fairy gardens. I love the magazine photo of dinner parties that have long tables with lots of people dining al fresco. What a fun way to have a neighborhood gathering. Celebrations are great for neighborhood spirit -- ice cream socials, sledding behind a tractor, hayrides on a wagon pulled by a lawnmower, 4th of July bike parades, caroling, ice hockey on a frozen yard, candlelight tree lighting, and in summer for enchanted fairy nights. It just takes one person to say “let’s celebrate.” Last year we even had a tour to celebrate eight recently remodeled kitchens. Each home provided refreshments, and we walked around with our own wine or beer glasses. One of my most memorable of recent community celebrations involved Backyard Birds (BYB) and the Indy Chapter of Canine Companions for Independence joining the Broad Ripple Christmas Parade. What fun! The dogs and puppy raisers walked in front of the BYB red convertible covered with lights and handed out candy to spectators. The next time you are restless or don’t have anything to do, cook up a celebration. Broad Ripple has lots of places to hold a celebration: parks, eateries, galleries, and quaint niches of the Village.

Spring wildflowers in bloom at area parks by Bill Malcolm

Spring has finally sprung and that means the wild flowers are in bloom at BR parks (Marrott Park, Holliday Park, and Broad Ripple Park). For trout lillies, you can’t beat Marrott Park (75th and College). The display is amazing but hurry–it only lasts a week or two. Holliday Park also has an explosion of wild flowers -- including the hepaticas on “Hepatica Hill”. These early bloomers will be starting any day. Broad Ripple Park just north of the tennis courts is another place to find the “spring ephemerals”. This means the flowers must bloom and go to see before the trees get their leaves. Join Norma Wallman, author of Wildflowers of Holliday Park on April 11 and May 9 at 10 am for a 90-minute leisurely hike to see what is blooming. (Register at Holliday Park, 327-7180 or www.indy.gov/parks). She’ll be on the lookout for shooting stars, Virginia blue bells, Dutchman’s breeches/squirrel corn, the beautiful yellow native poppy, wild ginger, and more. Bill Malcolm is a long time BR resident and former Gazette columnist.

Welcome to the Village, Eva Maison! The BRVA is very excited to welcome Eva Maison to the Village! Eva Maison is an organic cosmetic shop with the added bonus of being a vintage furniture + found object market, thanks to its unique partnership with Flux Indy (www.fluxindy.com). The shop’s concept was inspired by Josh’s wife, a registered dietitian and nurse, who has always talked about the importance of wholesome ingredients in food and skin care products. Eva Maison will carry over 30 different wholesome cosmetic brands such as S.W. Basics of Brooklyn, Earth Tu face, Lurk, Grown Alchemist, and Aruba Aloe. It will also carry beauty brands from the Midwest like La Bella Figura (Chicago) and Kodo Fragrance (Indianapolis). Josh explains, “All of the brands we work with use natural, wholesome ingredients that are ethically sourced. Some of the brands even grow their own botanical herbs that they use with their products. One amazing brand we are working with is Little Seed Farm (www.littleseedfarm.com) - they have their own goats and grow all of their own herbs that they use to make amazing soaps.” On why they decided to open Eva Maison in the Village, Josh comments, “Both my wife and I love Broad Ripple. We love to run on the Monon and grab dinner in the area. When we first saw the space, we fell in love with it and knew it was the perfect location for our first Eva Maison store.” But this couple dreams big! Josh and his wife plan to open two more stores in Indiana before the end of the year. Eva Maison has found its place next to likeminded businesses The Garden Table, Nicey Treat, and Bambu Salon on Westfield Blvd. We encourage you to stop in and welcome Josh and his wife! Congratulations on the opening of your business and welcome to the Village, Eva Maison!
