mario@broadripplegazette.com Randy Fisher is a partner at DeveloperTown, located at 5255 Winthrop Avenue. He recently went off-line to describe the technology firm south of Broad Ripple. “The simplest way to describe DeveloperTown is that we bring new software products to life. We work on projects ranging from fantasy football prediction engines to precision agriculture. We are currently working with Beck Hybrid Seeds on their FarmServer project, which is built to help farmers leverage precision agriculture strategies to make decisions on their farms,” he explained. In a short-time, the software developer and design firm has made vast progress. “On January 1, 2010, we DeveloperTown were plotting the concept of company while we were 5255 Winthrop Ave. [PP24 on map] the renting space on the east side (855) 338.8696 of Indianapolis. Once we found this space, we bought it www.developertown.com and completely rehabilitated it. It was truly a warehouse and we had to make it workable office space. Year one to three was spent doing that. From a business growth standpoint, we have gone from 12 employees in year one to over 40. We started out doing software development, then design and then we added marketing services. Our theory is to get the product to market as fast as you reasonably can, learn and get the knowledge (from consumers) and then continue design making. The business has evolved over time. One of the biggest evolutions when we first set out, we were really only working with small entrepreneurial tech start-ups. We used the

Almost 100 were in attendance on May 21 for the groundbreaking ceremony on the site of the old Broad Ripple Shell station at 63rd and College Avenue [F3 on map]. Construction will begin soon on the Fresh Thyme Farmers Market grocery store (33,500 sq. ft.) and The Coil apartments (151 units). The project will also connect to a new canal esplanade that will run from College Avenue to Guilford Avenue and a parking garage on the north side of the Central Canal. Included in the ceremony were Mayor Ballard, Browning Investments Michael Browning, Elizabeth Marshall of the BRVA, and Fresh Thyme’s Chris Sherrell. According to Angela Wethington, Vice President of Asset Management at Browning, phase one (the store and garage) is tentatively scheduled to open in the spring of 2016. Phase two (the apartments) is scheduled for a 2017 opening.

learnings from working with these small companies to helping bigger companies launch new products. That new piece is key because you can treat it like a startup. The DeveloperTown team likes the variety of their work. They may work on healthcare, entertainment or education projects over a four to six week time frame. The variety is what keeps them interested and fresh,” Fisher mentioned. “Software developers and designers work in various houses customized by a local homebuilder. The concept of the houses is that when there is a project going on, we can push them together to bring developers, designers and engagement managers into a cul-de-sac model. The houses are on wheels and can be moved around DeveloperTown. We have a full-time person who basically works on the houses in here and makes modifications to them. She started out doing odds and ends when we were smaller, but with recent growth it has become a full-time job,” he said. DeveloperTown’s client base has expanded into new geographic boundaries. “We’re national at this point where we have clients on the east and west coast. The majority of our clients are in the Indianapolis metropolitan area. We were part of a project where entrepreneur Todd Wagner (from Cuban Wagner Company) had people involved in from all over the country. He would get the project team together in Los Angeles frequently to collaborate. One time he decided to have everybody fly to Indianapolis instead photo by Korey Clements DeveloperTown employees enjoy some down time between because he had a projects. speaking engagement. Their perception of the city completely changed. This is not a totally unique type of business on the east and west coast, but it is in Indianapolis. As we try to expand and grow here, we’ve been able to attract talent from both coasts to a flyover state,” Fisher noted. He earned his undergraduate degree in management and his graduate degree in information science at IU Bloomington. In addition to DeveloperTown, the building at 5255 Winthrop Avenue hosts a handful of other local businesses. The people on the Monon Trail side of the building work in an entrepreneur’s cove area. There is also the Speakeasy which is a co-working space people can share ideas and network. Typically a library atmosphere during the day, it hosts special events after hours when individuals log-off and want to engage in professional development. They often lend their skills to the local community in various ways. “We’re working with the Riviera Club and Joe Vuskovich at YATS on their websites right now,” Fisher mentioned. “The most rewarding part of my work is being able to improve people’s lives through well designed technology. Another thing I really enjoyed seeing is the economic development that has occurred since we moved into the area. We were the first ones here in scale. Now the entire stretch of Winthrop from 54th to 52nd is full of booming new businesses. Our plans are to continue growing and add 20 to 30 percent more staff,” he reflected. DeveloperTown partner Randy Fisher is more than just an entrepreneur. He and his staff are the catalyst in reviving a vacant urban area and pioneering a new path of economic progress south of Broad Ripple.

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 Riviera Club Hosts The World’s Largest Swim Lesson

On Thursday, June 18, tens of thousands of kids and adults at aquatic facilities around the world will unite for the sixth year in a row to set a new Guinness World Record™. This year the Riviera Club at 5640 North Illinois Street in Indianapolis will be one of these host sites, helping set a global record attempt for the most recorded number of swim lessons at a single time. That time is 10am when the Club, also known as Rivi, will be participating in The World’s Largest Swimming Lesson™ (WLSL). www.wlsl.org Team WLSL holds the current Guinness World Record™ for largest simultaneous swim lesson, which stands at 36,564 participants representing 22 different countries! The 2014 WLSL event generated more than 50 million media impressions, spreading the important message to hundreds of thousands of families. Tragically drowning remains the leading cause of unintended, injury related death for children ages 1-5, and the second leading cause of death for children under 14. Research shows participation in formal swimming lessons can reduce the risk of drowning by 88% among children ages 1 to 4, yet many kids do not receive formal swimming or water safety training. To participate, swimmers should be at least 4 years old. The lesson is open to swimmers with the minimum skill of submerging underwater. Participants will have the opportunity to learn and refresh skills that make everyone safer around the water. Become a World Record Holder! At least 25 participants are needed to join us in this spectacular day at the pool. Since the WLSL is open to the public, the Riviera Club will waive guest fees for this day. Registration for the event must be completed by 9:30am on July 18. The event will start promptly at 10am. The Riviera Club was founded in 1933 and has grown over the years as centerpiece in Midtown Indianapolis for aquatics, tennis, fitness, and social events. Rivi boasts a tradition of aquatic excellence not just in educational but competitive swimming. The 27-acre facility holds the state’s largest outdoor swimming pool holding 1.2 million gallons of water, in addition to two indoor pools, fitness facilities, 14 tennis courts and a 4,300 square foot ballroom.

Unique temporary artwork: 1370 Paper Doves Hang in “Formation”

This artwork is comprised of 1370 hand-cut paper doves, strung on fishing line and hung from a black carbon fiber frame. For the past six weeks, parishioners have been graciously hand-cutting doves and participating in various stages of the project without knowing of the project’s end result. The artwork is at St. Paul’s Episcopal Church, 6050 Meridian Street [JJ20 on map]. Packets with the outline of a dove printed on cardstock were made available on Easter Sunday. Volunteers – of any age – were asked to take the doves home, and to reflect on their gratitudes while cutting out each dove. Many of the cut doves were returned with names of loved ones written gently in pencil on them. “Formation” took approximately 18 months to go from vision to reality. The artwork’s designer, Jay Mermoud, is a member of St. Paul’s. He first met with the church’s Rector (senior priest), the Rev. John Denson in early 2014, sharing the concept and preliminary design sketches. This is Mermoud’s third dove project. Two prior projects were done at St. John’s Episcopal Church, Lafayette, though not on as large of a scale. The doves will hang in “Formation” at St. Paul’s through June 7.

38th & Meridian Farmer’s Market Kicks Off 11th Season

One of the longest running Farmer’s Markets in Central Indiana will once again bring accessibility to produce, meats, cheeses, baked goods and more to the Mid-North neighborhood and community at large. The Women, Infants & Children program (WIC) will also be present at each market, making it the most frequent WIC-accepting market in the city. The 38th & Meridian Farmer’s Market hosted by North United Methodist Church will begin its 11th season on June 18 from 4:307:30pm and will continue every third Thursday of the month through September. With the recent developments and conversations around the redevelopment of Tarkington Park, the Market looks to continue being a flagship in building community and cultivating relationships in the neighborhood. Known as a “food desert,” the area surrounding the Market has few options when it comes to accessing sources of sustainable and healthy food. Couple this with the opportunity to further allow the community to learn and grow together, the Market’s existence is seen as a welcome addition to the growing and changing neighborhood. This market is unique in that it offers several supplemental resources for its customers. The market will continue to partner with WIC and Senior Farmers’ Market Nutrition Program to hand out vouchers to qualified women and seniors. This year, the market is also approved to accept SNAP (formerly Food Stamps) and Fresh Bucks as well. The Market also participates in their own voucher system through North United Methodist Church, handing out limited vouchers to qualified individuals, making getting fresh, local and healthy food a reality for all. In order to meet the demand this year, the market will run longer and has over twenty (20) vendors committed to offering more diverse produce, meats, cheeses, baked goods, breads, food trucks, and more. If you would like to volunteer or learn more about the 38th & Meridian Farmer’s Market, please visit www.meridianfarmersmarket.org.

Bierman ABA Autism Center Open - 54th and Monon Trail

Bierman ABA Autism Center is excited to be expanding to a third Central Indiana location in the South Broad Ripple area. This small satellite location will provide intensive ABA therapy programs, Speech and OT to children on the Autism Spectrum. Therapy is provided 1:1 across a variety of settings to promote skill generalization and is always overseen by a BCBA (Board Certified Behavior Analyst) “This new location provides families living in mid-town Indy a chance to access services without needing to drive to the suburbs” said Bierman ABA Autism Center’s outreach director, Karla Webster. “In addition, we provide the communities we work in with resources for their families, events and seminars about ABA and Autism and several annual family-oriented events!” Research from the CDC now estimates that 1 in 68 children in the United States now have an Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). The US Surgeon General and the American Academy of Pediatrics have endorsed ABA therapy as the best research based treatment for children with autism. Bierman ABA Autism Center was founded in 2006, by Courtney Bierman, MA BCBA, and currently has centers across Indiana located in Westfield, Fort Wayne, and a location in partnership with Hendricks Regional Health in Avon.

I went to Columbus OH this last Memorial Day weekend to observe a worldwide martial arts competition. I haven’t been there for twenty plus years. What a lovely clean city it is! We have been so busy in Indianapolis building trails, developing our downtown, hosting conventions and supporting our sports teams that as a resident I am completely aware of all that Indianapolis has become. While Columbus is clean and pretty with some great old Victorians and other old styles of architecture, coming from Indy it made me immediately aware how far we have come from the days of being called “India-no-place” and “Nap Town”. We have definitely awakened from our nap. To begin with, the competition was held at the state fairgrounds, which was so easy to find. No map or navigation needed until you got to the parking lot. There were no signs anywhere directing you to any events. We ended up at a horse show and a graduation before roaming around and finding our event. Every event at the Indiana State fairground has signage and arrows. After the competition we went to Franklin Park to the Asian Festival which is one of the largest of its kind in the country and it was free admission. That was nice and doesn’t happen often here at home anymore. This park is impressive, big and gorgeous with a conservatory just off of downtown. There was an interesting bronze plaque paying tribute to the Asians who fought in the Civil War and then were denied citizenship. I noticed they had set up a temporary bike corral but there were only a handful of bikes. Indy would have had a ton of bikes. In fact the only bicyclists I noticed were the police. The festival was packed and we were short on time because we wanted to drive home, which takes three hours, so I said let’s leave through downtown and pick up dinner somewhere there. It was Saturday night, after all, and there was bound to be interesting activity to see in the heart of the city. Do you remember how downtown Indianapolis used to be? This was it. If it wasn’t for my car’s navigation system and its points of interest feature we wouldn’t have found the Spaghetti Warehouse (similar to The Old Spaghetti Factory here). The foodie craze has clearly not hit Columbus Ohio. But what has hit is digital billboards. They have a large running banner on a curved corner building. Actually, it is so large that it is three different running banners each on a different level. It put me to mind of the proposed huge video screen that is to go on the new development downtown here on Massachusetts Avenue when the fire department will be relocated and replaced. They had several digital running billboard banners on buildings downtown that were eye level. Our City Council is discussing it now and there is much remonstration. Columbus seems to be the trendy Ohio city. I don’t visit cities much. I tend to get on the freeway and exit off at the beach. The sea soothes my soul. But what I learned from this little escape was just what a good job our city is doing being progressive and engaging. It really is amazing how many things there are to do here. We can be proud of our home town. It really is something to howl about. And while I’m in brag mode, can I just say that my Indianapolis daughter and 15-year-old granddaughter, Jennifer and McKayla McCammon who both are second degree black belts in Tae Kwan Do, each took gold medals in their divisions at this world-wide mixed martial arts competition called the Battle of Columbus. McKayla is a freshman at North Central. They are amazing women!

Clue: D equals G 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 1 in the right section of the middle row of the easy puzzle that contains the 2-4-8. The 1 in the right section of the middle row eliminates the spaces to the right of the 8. The 1 in the center section eliminates the spaces to the left of the 4. The 1 in the left section of the bottom row eliminates the space to the left of the 2. The only space left is above the 8. You have now learned a technique used to solve Sudoku puzzles. There are many more.

Serving Broad Ripple Since 1979

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

Risque Business If you are already a fan of the hand-made, wholesome breads created by Alice and Jeanette at “Perk Up/Brotgarten”, then I probably don’t have to remind you that they are VEGAN too. And many of their food items are vegetarian. (Don’t forget those scrumptious hand-made pastries, pies and cakes. Koffee Klatsch Sundays here we come!) Alice is also a star coffee roaster. I liken Perk Up’s coffee bean mastering to that of a winemaker. Why? Because she roasts each to extract the flavor and aroma of the bean itself. You won’t smell “burned coffee grinds” like you do in most coffee houses. Instead, you will smell and taste the fruity, brightness or rich, smooth nutty elegance of the specific coffee bean you choose for your cup of freshly ground and brewed coffee. Pairing vegan foods and enjoying coffee like wine, made me think about...what else, WINE that works with vegetarian dishes but also exudes an amount of flair. Risque Sparkling wine from Toad Hollow in California. The bottle is beautiful. The label is fun. And the juice inside is the PERFECT wine for vegetarian, vegan or even spicy foods. Pour a glass and see soft, tiny bubbles fizz while fresh aromas of green apples and d’anjou pear waft up from the crystal clear wine. Take a sip and savor silky, flavors of apples and pears with a subtle fresh fruit sweetness, not cloying at all. It’s more of a crisp, lip-smacking refresher to the palate that makes you want to take another sip, and another. Pair it with a spinach salad, or quinoa/kale/black beans or some of those amazing Brotgarten Pretzels or Vital bread with a hunk of cheese. Even spicy Thai food would be tamed to perfection by the refreshing flavors of this California gem. This is one “Risq” worth taking. 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.

by Laura Minor

Indiana and Indianapolis have been in the national spotlight at least a handful of times in the past few years. Whether it be the Super Bowl, the NCAA finals or something less flattering such as the RFRA shenanigans. I for one pay a lot of attention to our national “image” as I am super proud to be a Hoosier and love living in Indianapolis. However, we recently had another blow to our ego shown by a recent study of the most (and least) fit list of major cities and in the US. Indianapolis came…drumroll please….LAST! When I read this, I was not only disappointed, I was a bit surprised. In recent years I have witnessed, as I am sure you have as well, the creation of several fitness trails all over town, hundreds of bike lanes on streets, public bike rental sites, many a fitness fair, and dozens of fitness-based studios speckled all over the city. “How can this be?” I thought. The article stated “Leading experts in the field of sports medicine and exercise say personal and environmental factors contribute to the ratings.” The American College of Sports Medicine (which ironically is internationally based in Indianapolis of all places) created this ranking system called the American Fitness Index and it is based not only on how healthy a metro area is right now, but also on the priority of their leaders to promote pathways to active lifestyles and positive health outcomes. Several factors go into the criteria some of which include access to public parks, walk-ability, outdoor exercise options, obesity and diabetes rates. Top 5 fit cities: 1. Washington, DC 2. Minneapolis 3. San Diego 4. San Francisco 5. Sacramento Bottom 5 fit cities 1. Indianapolis 2. Memphis 3. Oklahoma City 4. San Antonio 5. Louisville Obviously Indianapolis has a harder way to go with lack of natural fitness draw such as mountains and oceans. And I personally don’t know any adult that doesn’t own a car and I know of one person that rides his bike to work every day. But call me crazy, who hasn’t witnessed the mob scene on the Monon trail on any nice day of the week, or the weekly farmers market in Broad Ripple and Carmel (yes, Carmel was included in our ranking as well) not to mention many others? We host the nation’s largest half marathon every year, hundreds of 5Ks, bike races, outdoor yoga events, etc. We have Eagle Creek, one of the nation’s largest parks with several events a month, gorgeous Ft. Benjamin Harrison park and so on…..So, what gives? Are these other 49 cities really outshining us? If so, I am impressed, because I feel that Indy does pay attention to fitness and activity. I will say that in regards to diet, Indy does have a ways to go toward access to healthy food as opposed to junk/fast food joints which are appear to be everywhere. Lastly, I do not feel that Indy leaders are doing a bad job with fitness initiatives, but I do think that people need to USE them more. So, I challenge you Indy, get out on the cultural trail for a walk, rent a public bike, go canoeing at Eagle Creek, hit the farmer’s market for fresh, local produce, etc. and take advantage of what our city has to offer. Let’s improve our perception to the rest of the country. No one like being last place!  Laura Minor owner and operator of So.Be.Fit. Personal Training and Fitness studio located at 54th and the Monon. She is passionate about teaching others how to “FIT” exercise and physical activity into their daily lives, and have fun while doing so!

Every year I write a dog deportment column. Yes, it needs to be done every year because I see dogs acting badly in public, which is a HUGE reflection on their owners! Your dog has learned acceptable behavior from you – no shifting the blame for improprieties onto dogs.

Lids Outlet is open just north of Glendale at 6315 N Keystone Avenue. This was previously Blockbuster Video.

www.virtualbroadripple.com So, here are those rules for including dogs in your dinner plans: 1. Call ahead to see if dogs are welcomed on outdoor patios. You don’t want to leave a dog tied to a post or in a hot car if they are not allowed. Or, check out the Broad Ripple Gazette restaurant section. If there is a paw beside the restaurant listing, you can take your dog. Remember only service dogs (not therapy or comfort dogs) are allowed inside restaurants and most businesses. 2. When dining, a dog should be in a “down stay” next to you or under the table. It is not appropriate for a dog to sit in a chair or ease onto the table. 3. Dogs should not bark! Barking is as irritating as children screaming or crying. 4. You should not feed dogs from the table. Even if this is your habit at home, dogs in public should be on their best behavior. 5. Do not let your dog sniff other dogs around the waiting or eating area. If it locks eyes with other dogs, you may set off in an aggressive situation that causes disruption. 6. If you would like to pet a dog. ALWAYS ask permission from its owner first. If the handler says no, do not be offended. 7. If your dog becomes unruly, take it away from the table for a time out. People should not have to put up with an out-of-control dog. It is the owner’s responsibility to have his/her dog under control at all times. 8. Keep your dog on a leash when out in public. You should not leave the dog tethered to a post, returning later. 9. Always pick up the waste your dog has made. You are responsible for any damage your dog causes. 10. If your dog fails at dining out, find a good training center and learn the art of controlling your dog with acceptable public behavior.

Taking a walk in Broad Ripple with my dogs is one of the many summer activities I enjoy most. If you like going places with your dog too, I hope you also plan outings with your canine companions at the many welcoming restaurants of the Village.
