In preparation for the construction of a Meijer store, the light poles were recently removed from the car dealers at 56th and Keystone Avenue.

Banner Artist of the issue Beth Zyglowicz is the banner artist in this issue. Beth moved to Broad Ripple five years ago, shortly after receiving her BFA in Illustration from the Herron School of Art. Since then, she has worked on numerous illustration projects, primarily focusing on children’s book illustration and game illustration. Recent projects include the humor book The Lap-Reluctant Cat (2013) and illustrations for the sci-fi exploration game Weirspace. com. She primarily works in digital media, but also produces a few mixed media pieces each year. You can find her artwork online at spaceturtlestudios.com


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.

The A.M. Gallery at 6556 N. Cornell Avenue on the Monon Trail shares the same address with A.M. Real Estate Resources, which donates 10 percent of its proceeds to the local arts. “Basically, we rotate artists’ work every two months and only display local artists. The first artists shown here were Megan Jefferson and Jaime Locke, who co-created painted wood carved mandalas. Megan does abstract paintings and worked on the co-piece with Jaime, so they combined their two styles of art. Joel Washington, who is a janitor at the IU-Bloomington campus, is a painter whose work recently appeared here. An image he created of guitar icon Jimi Hendrix was shown at the U.S. Embassy in Bangkok, Thailand and was also featured on the front cover of the Art in Embassies Exhibition publication there. The princess of Thailand, who attended the exhibit, purchased a couple of his paintings. (Samples of his work are at: joelwashingtonart.blogspot.com). His work was shown along with fellow Indiana artists John Dumont, Robert Indiana, James Spencer Russell and Kurt Vonnegut, Jr. He has a bold color palette inspired by the Beatles, Yellow Submarine,” J.J. Canull explained. He and his brother, Zac, co-own the Broad Ripple area art gallery and real estate agency. A.M. Gallery opened last May before the annual Broad Ripple Art Fair. The real estate area is next to the studio portion of the business when customers enter. The residence is one of many on the Monon Trail that date back nearly 100 years. A.M. Real Estate dates back 35 years when Zac and JJ’s father, Jim, started the company. A number of artists working in different mediums are getting exposure there. “There was a photographer named Jedidiah Johnson, a A.M. Gallery & teacher of the arts in Chicago Real Estate Resources who recently moved back to Indianapolis, his hometown. He 6556 N. Cornell Ave. creates visually interesting, high(317) 848-1588 resolution paintings. We’re still www.amrelo.com looking for the next artists to be lined up here in June and are here daily from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday,” he added. On weekends they are open by appointment only. Artists can call 848-1588 or e-mail: jjcanull@ amrelo.com. Potential home owners and home sellers can also use this same address and e-mail. “I want to pick artists that aren’t well-known in the Indiana area, but have potential. They don’t have to be edgy… but I like me some edge. As the shows appear, their times and dates will be listed on our website, www.amrelo.com (shared with A.M. Real Estate Resources).

for real estate, wouldn’t you want to pick someone who gives back to the local community? We are a family run business who enjoys the simple concepts of combining profitability with social responsibility; learned by eating and learning about Ben & Jerry’s business model,” Canull noted. J.J. and Zac have followed their father’s footsteps. Jim Canull appears in a 1981 A.M. Real Estate advertisement that can be seen in the office. Marketed toward potential real estate agents, it emphasizes, “We’re not a franchise, but a locally-based residential real estate firm with emphasis on relocation. Instead of franchise fees, you can look forward to our favorable commission schedule and ‘instant bonuses.’ Rather than an independent 100% concept, you can anticipate total management support and ‘team marketing’ approaches.’ Their Hamilton County office is located at 138 West Carmel Drive. “A.M. Real Estate could be named for ‘action marketing,’ but lends itself to a lot of different translations. When you are selling real estate, everyone puts a sign in the yard, but we stand apart by actually helping every step of the way. The magic is in knowing the market up and down. This helps target the right listing price as well as knowing everything that does and doesn’t have to be done before hitting the market. “My father always said the homes are bought, not sold. A family walks in and gets a feel for the property. So we feel it’s our responsibility to know exactly where to have it priced and to help you create the right atmosphere to get you the highest dollar expeditiously,” photo by Mario Morone Canull stressed. J.J. and Zac Canull inside A.M. Real Estate & Gallery. “At any given time, we manage 250 properties on the property management side. When the (real estate) market is down, a lot of people like to list for sale or lease to see whichever one comes first. Another unique opportunity we have for buyers comes from our rental division. If an owner we manage a property for thinks about selling their home we know six months before it hits the normal market. This allows buyer’s working with us to look behind the curtain and see some properties others might never get the opportunity to see,” he mentioned. “My dad started A.M. Real Estate over 30 years ago in Carmel. I’ve lived in the Broad Ripple area for the past 10 + years. So when I saw this spot open up (6556 N. Cornell) I was excited to relocate the real estate business here and be able to adapt a portion of it into a local art gallery. People usually sit in a closing for an hour or more signing repetitious documents, so it’s nice to have something visually stimulating to help pass the time instead of the normal tan wall and mundane gold framed cheetah picture I’ve seen in numerous other offices,” Canull noted. “I was an art minor and photojournalism major at IU-Bloomington. My focus was in photojournalism and always had a pull toward the aesthetic. My minor in art was mostly photographic. I did a project called Humans of Indiana last year, inspired by the Humans of New York project. I took a picture of somebody in Indiana every day for a year (www.facebook.com/humansofindianapage). It’s nice to be able to share with others that we are more than just real estate agents. We are all just humans trying to act like we know what’s going on. Speaking of which, please let ‘everyone’ know that we are more than happy to work with anyone. Although, I’m confused if the Bill signed by Governor Pence overrides the Fair Housing Act? Either way, if you come to us, you don’t have to worry about ridiculous laws. We are a family owned company that accepts everyone at our door,” he emphasized. Whether buying or selling a home or seeking local artists’ works, J.J. and Zac Canull offer indigenous portfolios of each at A.M. Real Estate and A.M. Gallery on the Monon Trail in Broad Ripple.

Last Call for Spring Wildflowers by Bill Malcolm

It is the end of the spring wildflowers season at area parks. (They stop blooming as the trees get their leaves.) Don’t miss Holliday Park, Broad Ripple Park, and Marrott Park (75th and College) for a display of wood poppies, virginia blue bells, wild geraniums (see Norma’s photo to the left), and jack in the pulpits. Norma Wallman, author of Wildlfowers of Holliday Park, will lead a spring wildflower hike on Saturday May 9th at 10 a.m. at Holliday Park where you can learn the names of the flowers you are seeing including my favorite, shooting stars. Also at Holliday Park: April 24 is a dig n discuss learn and labor workshop (9 a.m.) where you can work in the rock garden and also learn about gardening from horticulturist Chris Turner. April 25th will be the grand opening of the nature center’s remodeled exhibit hall. The event runs from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. May 16 is a rafting the White River trip. May 28 is the first outdoor concert at 7 p.m. Not at Holliday Park this year is Orchard n Bloom, the annual garden show.

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

Celebrate Earth Month With bambu salon

BAMBU SALON & SPA will host Water Warrior Yoga in honor of Earth Month and in support of organizations around the world working to preserve access to clean water. Last year Aveda’s global network of beauty professional and corporate employees in more than 30 countries passionately pursued our goal of protecting and preserving clean water for everyone, everywhere by organizing thousands of events to raise a total of $6 million for clean water. Since 1999 Aveda has raised over $32M to help support organizations that directly affect environmental change. More than $26M of that amount has funded clean water projects at home and around the world. More than 4,000 children in developing nations die each day from preventable conditions directly linked to consumption of unsafe drinking water. The stark differences between access and rights to safe drinking water globally are startling enough to inspire much needed change – a movement that can empower communities, protect local watersheds and help make clean water accessible to everyone, everywhere. As the campaign moves into its 9th year focusing on clean water, Aveda Earth Month 2015 will help to achieve this change, by directing funds from this event to support our local Earth Month partner, Hoosier Environmental Council. Key Earth Month 2015 fundraisers include: • On Sunday, April 26th at 2:00pm, Bambu Salon will host Water Warrior Yoga in Broad Ripple Park, 1550 Broad Ripple Ave. This donation-based yoga class benefits the Hoosier Environmental Council. Guests may purchase tickets or donate at crowdrise.com/bambusalon. • On Sunday, April 12th at 12:30pm, Bambu will participate in Catwalk for Clean Water at The Sanctuary on Penn, 701 N. Pennsylvania Ave. This unique fashion show will feature an avant-garde, eco-chic segment using vintage or recycled and/or up-cycled materials and a Pure Aveda Transformation segment featuring makeovers. Join us for an afternoon of beautiful hair, makeup, local art auction, music and fashion. Guests may purchase tickets at indyearthmonth. brownpapertickets.com. • Aveda’s 2015 Light the Way™ soy wax candle, featuring a stress-relieving aroma with certified essential oils, including organic vanilla, cinnamon and ylang-ylang, is sold exclusively during Earth Month. One hundred percent of the purchase price ($12) of this candle supports Global Greengrants Funds water-related projects (learn more at www.greengrants.org). For the ninth consecutive year Aveda is partnering with Global Greengrants Fund as its exclusive global Earth Month partner to provide grants for community-based water projects in more than 40 countries. Global Greengrants Fund provides small grants to grassroots organizations working for clean water, clean air, sustainable livelihoods and healthy communities around the world. Aveda’s 2015 Earth Month funds will also support 35 regional partners working to preserve clean water in areas where Aveda does business. Guests can visit www.crowdrise.com/waterwarrioryoga for online donations to The Hoosier Environmental Council. To learn more about Water Warrior Yoga, visit Facebook.com/WaterWarrior-Yoga.

Mother has her own surprise: a gala town picnic and parade to honor her rising television star.

The Alzheimer’s Association Conference last year.

Alzheimer’s Association Education Conference By Mario Morone

mario@broadripplegazette.com The Alzheimer’s Association Education Conference is May 1 at the Indianapolis Marriott North, located at 3645 River Crossing from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Professionals and family members of those living with dementia will explore issues surrounding Alzheimer’s disease. Keynote presenter Peter Davies, Ph.D., Scientific Director of Litwin-Zucker Center for Research on Alzheimer’s Disease at Feinstein Institute for Medical Research and Professor of Pathology and Neuroscience at Hofstra North Shore-LIJ School of Medicine, will discuss the development of new treatments. His research has gained national recognition. On April 21, Davies received the 2015 Potamkin Prize for Research in Pick’s, Alzheimer’s and Related Diseases in Washington, D.C. at the American Academy of Neurology’s 67th Annual Meeting. “The most important thing I can do is bring hope,” said Davies. “My research has largely focused on the disease process and attempting to define points at which intervention is possible. A more detailed understanding of the process is essential to the development of drugs to slow, stop or even prevent it.” “The new findings on how Alzheimer’s disease affects our community show that everyone is at risk of developing Alzheimer’s disease or another dementia in their lifetimes. It’s time to do something about it - share the facts, assist the caregivers among us and be better educated about warning signs, how to address behaviors and care planning steps. Being prepared can help generate an earlier diagnosis, which we have found leads to best quality of life for the individual and his or her family,” said Leah Shattuck. Ms. Shattuck is Communications Director of the Alzheimer Association’s Greater Indiana Chapter. “Diagnosis in the early stages of the disease allows one to plan for their care and have necessary conversations with their care partner,” said AAGIC Executive Director Heather Hershberger. “An early diagnosis of Alzheimer’s disease or other dementias is an important step in getting appropriate treatment, care and support services. We have many programs designed for those in the early stages and we offer the care and support families need throughout the disease,” Ms. Hershberger added. According to the Alzheimer Association’s 2015 Facts and Figures report, an estimated 5.3 million American have the disease, including 110,000 individuals in Indiana. Projections say that the number of Americans with Alzheimer’s will rise to 13.8 million by 2050. The full text of the report can be read at www.alz.org. Conference registrants are invited to a special pre-conference screening of awardwinning documentary film, Alive Inside, on April 30, 7 p.m. at Indianapolis Marriott North. Dan Cohen, MSW, founder of Music & Memory, Inc. and the subject of Alive Inside, will close the conference with his keynote presentation on therapeutic outcomes of personalized music for people with dementia. “Music that holds personal meaning serves as a backdoor to one’s cognition, one’s sense of self,” said Cohen. “We may not be able to cure the disease, but we can often improve one’s quality of life by helping to reduce or eliminate ‘Sundowning,’ while improving mood for the person with dementia as well as for the care partner.” For a free Alzheimer’s Education Conference brochure or to register, visit www.alz.org/indiana/conference or call (800) 272-3900.

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 5 in the left section of the top row of the easy puzzle that contains the 1-2-7. The 5 in the center section of the top row eliminates the spaces to both sides of the 2. The 5 in the right section of the top row eliminates the spaces to the left of the 7. The 5 in the left section of the bottom row eliminates the spaces above and below the 2. The only space left is two spaces below the 7. You have now learned a technique used to solve Sudoku puzzles. There are many more.

On April 3rd, in the final throes of March madness, six of the 1954 State Champion Milan Indians converged upon Plump’s Last Shot (etc). The breakfast, hosted by Jonathan Plump, was two-fold. One, to afford the Broad Ripple basketball fans an opportunity to meet and greet local basketball legends and two, to have a place where they could meet and autograph balls, pictures, and memorabilia from the movie “HOOSIERS” . These autographed items along with signed certificates of authenticity were to be auctioned to benefit the “Gift of Life Program” providing life-saving surgeries, in concert with Indianapolis hospitals, for children with no hope of receiving medical care in their own country. Rotary International sent Bobby a note on 3/15/2015 and I quote “Bobby, With help from people like you we raised over $218,000 for Gift of Life. This can be matched with Rotary Foundation funds for a greater impact.” Some of the autographed items also went to the Milan Museum.

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

Sip, Savor, Splurge This week’s review is inspired by a few interesting statistics, and an inspirational quote. First the stats. The March 2015 report from The Wine Market Council shows that 40% of Americans drink wine, and 54% of them are women! The Wine Market Council also found that while the total volume of wine sold grew only slightly (to 302 million cases), the value grew more strongly because many people are “trading up” to higher priced wines. Remember, trading up can be from Two Buck Chuck to the incredible values from Chile and Argentina (most of those tasty wines are $7 or less). However, I think the marketing gurus mean those of us who drink wine under ten bucks on a regular basis ARE now moving up to wines in the “teens” ($13-$18) every once in awhile. California winemakers continue to produce and release delicious wines in the “teen range” that are easy to find. Enjoy great offerings from William Hill, Lange Twins, and Dry Creek Vineyards for TRUE values. Next, inspiration for this week’s column, this quote: “There comes a time in every woman’s life when the only thing that helps is a glass of champagne.” - Bette Davis So with Bette’s thoughts in mind, and helping to prove the Wine Market Council’s report of “trading up” every once in a while, I recently sipped, savored and celebrated a birthday by sharing a bottle of 2003 “J” rrv Sparkling Wine with some of my Warfleigh winos. A blend of three Champagne country grapes (Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Pinot Meunier) come together like well woven silk. It was creamy, yet light, with notes of soft vanilla, pear and almond. The “rrv” means Russian River Valley, the region in Sonoma County where J winery grows and produces its remarkable wines, both still and sparkling. This one IS exceptional and a splurge for the pocketbook , but like Bette predicted, it helped. 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.

Local hostess wins excellence award Beth Langan, longtime Hostess at Hollyhock Hill restaurant, 8110 North College Avenue, is this year’s winner of the prestigious ROSE Award, presented annually by Visit Indy. The ROSE Awards (Recognition of Service Excellence) honors hospitality employees who provide excellent customer service through one-onone or behind-the-scenes contact, positively influencing a visitor’s experience in Indianapolis. Over Beth’s twenty (20) + years of service to Hollyhock Hill restaurant and the hospitality community at large, the examples of service excellence she has demonstrated are monumental. Ultimately, Beth’s goal is steadfast and simple - provide each guest with a memorable dining experience. Jay Snyder, owner of Hollyhock Hill commented, “Barbara and I are thrilled that Beth is being honored, she has been with us for nearly twenty-five years and is well deserving.” Beth’s nomination form came with a lengthy list of extraordinary examples of Hoosier Hospitality. One goes like this. This new couple was having their first night out of the house after having their first child. Beth realized that the couple, as first time parents, were stressed because they forgot to bring a bottle for their baby. Beth didn’t waste any time – she jumped in the car and ran to Beth Langan winner of the ROSE Award. the local grocery store and purchased a bottle so that the couples’ evening would not be interrupted. Beth understands the personal touch of customer service. From remembering a person’s name, favorite table, the way they like their meal prepared and even guests’ anniversaries or birthdays. There was one special occasion in particular where she went far beyond the expectations of a hostess, in fact, she became the hairdresser. This restaurant was hosting a wedding reception and the hairdresser didn’t show, so she jumped right in and did the Brides hair and the wedding went on as planned. She has taken convention guests from the restaurant to their downtown hotel after they missed the bus, she’s delivered carryout dinners to customers who are house-bound, and she’s gone to the hospital to check on regular customers who fell ill. She carries “magic pennies” around with her to pass out to rambunctious children for them to throw in the fountain at the restaurant, keeping them entertained so that their parents may enjoy their dinner. Beth has worked as a hostess for Hollyhock Hill for 24 years.

puzzle on Page 10


by Laura Minor

I had a very interesting week from a health perspective. And I wouldn’t say so in a good way. Let’s translate “interesting” to “life lesson and educational.” I had significant back pain in bed this past Sunday night. Monday morning it was feeling much better so after my first client, I took a run and immediately when I ended I realized something was not right. My right side groin and lower back were very achy and crampy. I stretched a bit, headed to the grocery store where I began to feel nauseous so decided to head home. I then proceeded to get the chills and had an unwavering need to squirm and fidget to get comfortable but to no avail. It was clear this wasn’t muscular, so I texted a client that is an ER doc with my symptoms and she said it could be a kidney stone. “WHAT?!” I thought…this can’t be!! I proceeded to Google kidney stone symptoms and my face probably should have been right up there as the top hit. I had just about every symptom listed so my husband and I scooped up my stuff and headed to a walk-in health clinic. After preforming an x-ray, they told me that yes, in fact I had a small stone, gave me a prescription for Vicodin and sent me home, with the statement “If the pain is really bad, go to the emergency room.” Now I love Google as much as the next guy but, much to my husband’s dismay, when I have a health problem, I search EVERY topic and swear up and down that I will suffer the worst of the consequences I see. However, when you read on every single site that the pain from these suckers is excruciating and worse than childbirth, you’re pretty sure you’re in for a doozy. But, since I was told it was small and that exercise and drinking a lot of water are key in its passing I wasn’t too worried since I had pain medicine. Let me digress. See, the exercise thing is no problem for me; check! But the water thing is embarrassingly lacking and always has been. I definitely have a horrible thirst mechanism, and sometimes after a busy day I even wonder if I have had any at all. Yes, very dumb… I have actually been called a camel by my running friends and used to think it was funny and even kind of cool that I didn’t “require” a lot of water. Well, it has come to bite me in the butt hard!!! Stones can be caused by several factors but mine was very very likely cause by dehydration so yes, I own that. After three days of canceling work, squirming around, doubled over in pain (on pain meds mind you), taking hot showers to find relief and constantly laying a heating pad I had had it; and went to the emergency room. Why hadn’t this thing passed yet?! I had been pounding water for three full days. So, now I naturally began I had more wrong with me than just that; Oh not to mention I am running the Boston marathon in a week, and my entirely family is going, flight and accommodations paid for. No pressure there! The emergency room experience was surprisingly pleasant. People, if you ever need to go to one, god forbid, visit IU Health North…very nice people and quick. They gave me an IV of pain meds and scooted me of to get a CT scan in a wheelchair; that felt weird for sure. That was my first experience with a CT machine and it was nothing short of creepy. The worst part was AFTER the scan was over and waiting 25 minutes for the results. My mind was racing…What if they found cancer? What if I need a kidney transplant? It was probably a good thing my husband was in the waiting room  When the doc headed back in he started with “Are you ready to hear your report card?” With a fake laugh I said yes. He started by saying “point out the kidney stone” slapped down literally an image of my insides and there clear as day was the little stubborn booger. And he said “And it’s not small, 4mm in size (at 5mm they usually have to surgically remove it).” Apparently the pain from a stone lies primarily in its movement, that is why it is more like “attacks” rather than continuous. And once the stone enters the bladder the pain is all but gone, besides just a little achy. Well, mine was right about there thank the lord. I suppose the only nice thing about the scan results was as my doc called me “a very boring patient”. And, my blood work was spot on and organs functioning at high levels. So that was a relief! He prescribed me Flomax to dilate my ureter so that the stone would more easily drop into my bladder so I could pass it. As I sit here today, I have not, to my knowledge passed it, but pain is gone….. So lesson learned, many painful days and a lot of money spent later, I will no longer drink small amounts of water or believe that I just don’t need as much as others. Nope, dead wrong there. So, when you read health advice it’s probably wise to follow. I’m not invincible and the rules apply to just about everyone, few exceptions of course but by and large they do. I know this was a lot of information to make such an obvious point but I wanted to paint a picture of what I had to endure to learn this lesson once and for all. Oh and lastly, today the immediate care people called me to give me my “results” of the x-ray. You know the same one where the doc told me I had a small stone? Well, the receptionist told me my results were negative. I said “What do you mean negative? About the kidney stone?” She put me on hold, and when she returned she said…and I quote. “You do not have a kidney stone so keep doing what you’ve been doing.” I told her that I had in fact been to the ER the day before and that I do in fact have a large kidney stone. She then said “Oh, okay, well I hope you feel better. Have a nice day.” REALLY?! This is not the first time these places have seriously misdiagnosed me so NEVER again. And paying that bill might just make me sick to my stomach. Beware, beware….Hence another lesson learned.  Laura Minor owner and operator of So.Be.Fit.

There is a dark side to having a dog, a cat, raising chickens or goats in the Broad Ripple urban area. Life is not always cuddles, licks, or pastoral observations. Enter the varmints of the underground—rats, raccoons, mice, chipmunks, opossums, coyotes, fox, voles, and other scoundrels that try to undermine your joy. I’ve given up on classifying squirrels as the enemy long ago. So how do you manage the unwanted intruders in your backyard? The problem with wildlife management in urban settings is that most of the vandalizing attacks from the predators come after dark. They frolic in our yards from dusk to sun up. They leave just enough clues and mischief to challenge the smartest human to figure out who it was, how to stop it, and how to repair damage. I can only speak from my experience and how we manage critters in our yard. Many articles suggest building barriers and denuding property so that these visitors don’t like our yards. I’m not in that camp. I do want some visitors, just not the destructive ones. So when things get out of control in our yard, we trap. For rodents, chipmunks, opossums, and raccoons, a live trap is set. Critter Control INFO Per the IN.gov website: www.animalcontrolindianapolis. com “If the captured animal www.wildlifeanimalcontrol.com is to be released after capture, it must be www.animalcontrolsolutions.com/IN released in the county www.wildlife.IN.gov of capture and cannot be kept as a pet, sold, traded or given to another person. Releasing wild animals on a city, county, or state property (that means Marott, Broad Ripple and Holliday Park) may be illegal or require written permission. Contact proper officials before releasing wild animals on public property.” (Just a side story. Our church has a enclosed public garden that is very beautiful. One member of the congregation was overheard saying, “I bring my chipmunks up here and release them into the garden. I think it is a safe haven and they will have a good life”)

Random Ripplings

There was a line out the door for the opening weekend of The Dancing Donut at 1134 E. 54th Street [OO26 on map].

Suggestion from the DNR to follow to manage critters: • Pick up dog and cat food at night. Keep the bird feeding area cleaned up and if necessary bring feeder in at night. • Be sure chimneys have caps on them and soffits are in good repair. • Prune tree limbs at least 10 feet away from roof • Garbage can lids need to be secured • Install metal skirting around decks • Cover ponds at night with metal screen • Secure chickens with wire screening and coops with raccoon proof latches • If Canada geese are bothersome, apply for a license to remove their nests. • Pick the tomatoes before the critters do and ripen them inside! I wish you luck with your critter control. Sometimes I am successful and sometimes I just get to add to my bank of varmint stories to be used at the next party.
