From www.in.gov/dnr: Eurasian watermilfoil is native to Europe, Asia, and northern Africa. As of 2003, 45 states reported the presence of Eurasian watermilfoil. In Indiana, of the approximately 616 lakes and reservoirs in the northern one-third of the state, Eurasian watermilfoil infested at least 175 of them as of the late 1990’s. Throughout the state, approximately 126,000 acres of lakes and impoundments contain some level of Eurasian watermilfoil. Eurasian watermilfoil was first introduced into the United States through the aquarium trade. The first documented identification of Eurasian watermilfoil in open water in the United States was in 1942 from a pond in Washington D.C. By 1950 the species was into the Midwest in Ohio and was also found in western states such as Arizona and California. Eurasian watermilfoil is now found throughout the continental United States with the exception of the northern Great Plains region and Maine.

Everything you always wanted to know about the canal... By Alan Hague


Part Three In the warm months the flow of the canal can be impeded by the growth of pond weed. “For decades we had curly leaf pondweed and it normally grew in May and June and when the water temperatures would get warm, in July and August, it would start to die off,” explained Ed Malone, Director of Water Production for Citizens. “After the Guide spill (in Anderson), which occurred in 99, the river changed dramatically [remember, the river feeds the canal –Alan] and we started to see the proliferation of what they call Eurasian Milfoil. It’s an invasive species that can grow up to 6 inches a day, grows very quickly. It started to take root in the canal. It’s in the river as well, but it also took root in the canal. It seemed at times, no matter how much we cut, it was constant... it took all of our efforts to get ahead of it. In fact, in 2012, we had up to five boats at a time working in the canal.” “Sixteen hour shifts, seven days a week,” added Edwin Morris, Operations and Maintenance Supervisor for Citizens. “We keep track of how much material we harvest each year, we have to report that. We have to get a permit every year to harvest weeds in the canal through the Department of Natural Resources (DNR). It’s an annual permit. We apply for it each spring,” explained Ed. I asked why Citizens needs a permit to harvest pond weed from the canal that it owns. Ed explained that Citizens owns the canal, but the water in the canal is “Waters of the state”. According to Indiana code (IC 14-8-2-307) “ ‘Water of the state,’ means a lake, reservoir, marsh, waterway, or other water: under public ownership, jurisdiction, or lease; or that has been used by the public with the acquiescence of any or all riparian owners.” Getting back to the flow… one of the big benefits of our canal system is that its elevation continuously drops from the headgates all the way down to the White River treatment facility. The initial force of the water from the river combined with the gravitational pull downhill gives the water enough force to make it all the way through the treatment facility. “Exactly,” said Ed. “It’s all downhill to here,” I added. Ed continued, “This is one of the few plants, water treatment plants, you’ll find

Banner Artist of the issue The banner artist of this issue is Joel Fuller. “I’m a senior at Butler University, majoring in Art + Design and Digital Media Production. I fell in love with comics and graphic novels when I received my first graphic novel from my grandmother. From that day on I knew that I wanted to be a graphic novelist when I grew up. In my rural hometown of Pleasant Grove, Alabama, I would constantly draw all the homes and roads in my neighborhood. My parents would complain how I used up a lot of copy paper just to draw, but I wanted to get better. Throughout high school I would continue to take art classes. At times my teachers would threaten to write me up if I continued to draw on my tests and homework assignments. “Now majoring in Art + Design at Butler I have turned my passion for drawing into a reality. My artistic development flourished in the summer of 2014 when I won a competitive grant to participate in the Summer Research Institute at Butler University, which provided the time, funding, and support to create my first graphic novel, Xavian. The graphic novel takes its name from the hero Xavian Gubora, an anthropomorphic lion. He’s not your typical hero: carefree, reckless, but optimistic about the future’s uncertainty. Instead, he must reluctantly take up arms against an alien race determined to destroy the galaxy. My goal is to become a professional graphic novelist and take my work abroad. After I graduate from Butler I hope to go to Hong Kong and publish my graphic novel in Hong Kong. You can find my graphic novel at my website; xaviangubora.com” To celebrate the 11th year of the Broad Ripple Gazette we started featuring a year of local artists by allowing them to interpret our banner, while incorporating the words “The Broad Ripple Gazette”.

Citizen’s Edwin Morris shows Mario Morone the grate across the canal inlet to the treatment plant at 16th Street.

where we do not lift the water at all through our treatment plant operation. We provide no energy to the treatment plant, to the water flow, through this entire water treatment plant operation.” “Water flows entirely by gravity through the sedimentation basin. We bring the water in off the canal right here [Ed points to the aerial photo of the plant showing the canal inlet at the north end of the property], flows by gravity into the treatment plant and we come through our sedimentation basins. So it flows by gravity through those sedimentation basins, then comes into this building where we’re at today, and then this building has two filtration tanks. Flows by gravity through those filtration buildings, then continues to flow by gravity out into the UV operation. Continues to flow by gravity through the chlorine contact basin, and then into our reservoir which is here. It also continues to flow by gravity through a bypass that goes through here and over to our Riverside Station, which sits at 1201 Waterway Boulevard. That is the pump station that pumps water into the downtown district, the central district.

Another pump station which is on this facility right here, pumps water into the north and northeast districts. Meaning, the water from here is going north and east out of this facility. But, it can go downtown if it needs to. The Riverside station pumps primarily downtown and then goes on via our Madison Station down to Southport.” “ And, does this come back up to the Broad Ripple area for pumping? For fresh water,” I asked. Ed responded, “There is another pump station in Broad Ripple. You probably don’t even know it’s there. Its address is on College, but it is not on College... not on what is present-day College. It is on the alley that is directly to the east of it. It’s at 64th Street, It’s basically a Morton Steel building. And there is a pump station in that building there.

The pump station in Broad Ripple, behind Rich Oil [D3 on map]. (car is parked in front)

This fact really surprised me. I have lived in Broad Ripple for 55 years and have driven down that alley for years and have never even seen this building. Amazingly, this pump for the entire area seems to not make any noise outside of the structure. I followed up, “So, this little pump station, it’s just giving extra pressure? [The treatment plant] pumps it to there and the one on 64th just gives it more...?” Ed answered, “[The 64th Street pump] pumps it up into what we call our Meridian Hills district. Our system has twenty pressure districts, and typically at the boundaries of those districts are a pump station or a primary treatment plant. So, we move water multiple ways. But, there are two pump stations that take water from this station that are move it into the Broad Ripple area. One that we just talked about is the College Station. The other one is ...

Tonic Ball XIV Preview Party Friday, October 2 Hi-Fi The Murphy Building, 1043 Virginia Ave #4 21+, free with RSVP, doors 7 PM, show 8 PM

Tonic Ball, benefiting Second Helpings, is kicking off Tonic season with a preview night at Hi-Fi, featuring some of our city’s best local talent. This year’s Tonic Ball will celebrate the music of icons Bruce Springsteen, Pink Floyd, Tina Turner and Beck. This First Friday Preview Show is free with an RSVP. Musical acts for the preview show are She Does Is Magic, Joe Welch, and The Last IV. She Does Is Magic: Chad Serhal – Guitar/ Vocals, Mark Walker – Bass/Vocals, Nathan Dynak – Drums, and Steve Marino – Guitar. I hear that Kaylie Ann Pickett will be joining them on keyboard. I always enjoy seeing what Joe Welch does. He’s the founder of the photo courtesy of SDIM Born Again Floozies She Does Is Magic at The White Rabbit. and often plays with a cast of many great musicians including Vincent Jackson, Eddie Stienmetz, and Brett Cantrell. The Last IV: Rusty Redenbacher – vocals, Vess Ruhtenberg – guitar, David “Tufty” Clough – bass, and Devon Ashley – drums first took the stage together at last year’s Tonic Ball. Each member of the band is an icon in the Indiana music community. On top of his solo success, Redenbacher has been part of a diverse collection of acts, including the Birdmen of Alcatraz, Mudkids and Lazarus. Tufty (Toxic Reasons, Bigger Than Elvis) and Ruhtenberg (United States Three, JOT, Action Strasse) both played together in Indiana’s most recognized punk group, The Zero Boys. And similarly, Ruhtenberg found himself playing alongside Ashley (Mab Lab, The Lemonheads, F.U.Z.Z, Those Young Lions) when he fronted The Pieces. I would suggest purchasing your Tonic Ball (November 20) tickets as soon as possible – they’re selling quickly and this year promises to sell out for the third year in a row. And it’s all for a good cause. To RSVP for the preview party visit http://do317.com to purchase Tonic Ball tickets visit www.tonicindy.com or www.secondhelpings.org

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. As a board member of the BRHS Alumni Assn he is an organizer of the BRHS reunions for the classes of the 1930’s through the 1950’s held the first Sunday each June at Riviera Club. 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 Wine Scene as seen by The Broad of Ripple (Jill A. Ditmire)

DRINK LIKE THE POPE With the Pope’s recent visit to the US I thought I would share this snippet from the New York Wines newsletter that I get on a regular basis. Locally, I know that Easley Winery makes the sacramental wines for many of Indiana’s parishes. “Pope Francis received a Taste of New York–not just the Big Apple, but some New York wine–during his two-day visit to New York City this week. The wine: O-Neh-Da Authentic Sacramental Wine, from O-Neh-Da Vineyard on the hills above Hemlock Lake. In addition, Finger Lakes Riesling, Chardonnay and Cabernet Franc were served at a dinner with the Pope and other dignitaries. O-Neh-Da was created in 1872 by Bishop Bernard McQuaid of Rochester, and is America’s oldest dedicated sacramental winery. The 143-year-old winery produces only 100% pure grape wine for the Altar and dinner table, serving Catholic, Orthodox, Episcopal and Lutheran churches. Will Ouweleen, winemaker at O-Neh-Da, is a product of Catholic and Jesuit education, and contacted the office of Timothy Cardinal Dolan to offer all wine needed for the Celebration of Mass by Pope Francis. He personally delivered the wine for the occasion. O-Neh-Da’s sister winery, Eagle Crest Vineyards, produces a line of Finger Lakes table wines.” FALL FAVORITE: What a treat these last few weeks of weather have been for those of us who love to be outdoors. And a great opportunity to savor more WHITE wines before the cold, gray days of winter arrive and we seem to seek comforting RED wines. The 2013 Grgich Hills Estate Fumé Blanc is a classic. Organically grown grapes create a fresh, satisfying dry white wine with aromas and flavors of lime, melon and a round mineral finish. Pair it with grilled fish or roast chicken and keep in mind for Thanksgiving dinner which will be here sooner than we think. 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.

Warfleigh residents want flood wall Warfleigh residents have launched a petition drive to urge the city to work with the Army Corps of Engineers on the North Flood Wall project. Details are as follows from their website, www.savewarfleigh.org: • The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers’ floodwall project will protect the Broad Ripple, Warfleigh, Meridian Kessler and Butler Tarkington neighborhoods. • The City now opposes the floodwall project and asks the Corps to pursue a plan the Corps previously identified as technologically and economically infeasible. • Warfleigh home values decline as flood insurance premiums rise. Arden, Broad Ripple, Meridian Kessler and surrounding areas are harmed if Warfleigh deteriorates. Details are as follows from their website, www.savewarfleigh.org

Proposed bus rapid transit line includes dedicated lane IndyGo has made changes to its proposed Red Line over concerns about loss of parking. The Red Line is a proposed bus rapid transit (BRT) line that will go south to downtown and north to Carmel staring in 2018. On College Avenue, on-street parking will be maintained except in the immediate vicinity of a few station areas. Based on neighborhood feedback, station designs were reconfigured at 52nd, 54th, and Kessler to minimize parking losses at those locations. IndyGo provided these answers to my questionsWill there be a dedicated lane for the rapid bus line? There will be a single center of street bi-directional dedicated lane from 65th/ college to 38th/college. In general it will have dedicated lanes only on the before mentioned section of College, Meridian (38th – 18th) and Capitol (18th – Downtown). Will the BRT driver have control over the traffic signals? The vehicles will have prioritized signalization, meaning that if a BRT vehicle is approaching a green light, the green light might be held green, but only for 2-3 seconds to allow the bus through. They will not turn red lights into green lights. What are the next steps? The federal grant application is being submitted at the end of this month for the grant. IndyGo will continue to do public outreach with neighborhoods in the area. IndyGo will learn the results of the grant in March. For more details go to indygo.net/redline/faq/ For those that can’t wait for the BRT, we have two bus lines that serve downtown today from the Ripple (#17 and #18).

Councilman proposes recapture of BlueIndy parking spaces A City-County Councillor spoke at a meeting recently and announced he will introduce a city ordinance to re-capture the parking spaces taken by BlueIndy, the city’s new electric vehicle car sharing program. He noted that Blue Indy has taken 1,000 parking spaces for its 500 cars. Accordingly, he proposes some of these spaces be for regular car parking when they are not being used by BlueIndy cars. Apparently one SoBro business had 4-5 spaces taken away for the BlueIndy electric car sharing program. There have been complaints that there was no advance notice, nor public discussion of this. On a recent afternoon, just one of the five BlueIndy spaces across from the Monon Coffee Company had any BlueIndy cars in them. Balloon rides over the Ripple On September 16, two balloons were launched from Broad Ripple Park over Broad Ripple. The company involved was Midwest Balloon Rides. Holliday Park events include fall festival There is a lot going on at Holliday Park. Planting at Holliday Park around the newly remodeled “Ruins” exhibit will occur on October 10. Contact Friends of Holliday Park for details. On October 15, 16, and 17, Holliday Park will have a photo by Bill Malcolm haunt-less Halloween (with hikes starting every ten minutes). Finally on Sunday November 1 from 1:30 to 4:30 p.m., Holliday Park will have its Fall Festival. Haunted houses coming to Broad Ripple Park Over at Broad Ripple Park, on October 3, they will have an event so folks ages 2-10 can build gingerbread houses. The event is called Haunted Ginger Bread House. The fun starts at 10 a.m. Washington Township Schools schedules feedback sessions The Metropolitan School district of Washington Township is holding public feedback sessions. One will be October 15 at 7 p.m. at Crooked Creek Elementary. Another will be on November 4 at the Schools Central Office, 8550 Woodfield Crossing Boulevard. (I plan to attend to tell them to re-open the North Central pool with public swim hours.) Bill Brink Memorial Garden Dedicated On September 16, the Broad Ripple Village Association hosted the dedication party at the Hotel Broad Ripple for the new Bill Brink Memorial Garden which opened along the Monon recently. Chris Turner provided the landscaping which is mainly native plants. Bill Malcolm is a long-time Broad Ripple resident who works for a national association. He is also on the Board of the Indiana Passenger Rail Alliance and a member of the National Association of Railroad Passengers. He also has a sports and travel column for a monthly lifestyle newspaper. He welcomes reader feedback, comments, corrections, and story ideas and can be reached at bill@broadripplegazette.com

Clue: E equals A

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. A new technique! We will try to put a 4 in the right center section of the easy puzzle that contains 1-3-8. First figure out roughly where a 4 goes in the lower right section. The 4 in the upper right section eliminates the column to the right of the 5-9-2, forcing the 4 to be in the right-most column (below the 3). This eventual 4 placement will eliminate the space above the 8-3 in the section we are working on. The 4 in the left center section eliminates the two spaces to the left of the 8. The 4 in the upper right section eliminates the column to the left of the 8-3. The only place left is two spaces above the 1. You have now learned a NEW technique used to solve Sudoku puzzles. There are many more.

Broad Ripple Brewpub Quiz Answers (Questions on page 5)

Inspiring Autism It all began with a vision, the vision of two mothers who had sons with autism. These inspiring women envisioned a school where their sons would be accepted for who they were, to be encouraged to develop real life skills, with a curriculum that would meet their academic needs and above all, give them a home. By 2008 Susan LeVay and Ruth Padgett had realized their dream, The Independence Academy opened with the aim to live up to its name by developing true independence for its students. Susan and Ruth had worked tirelessly, overcoming many obstacles to open a school solely for children with high-functioning autism/Asperger syndrome – junior through high school. I had the privilege of working alongside Susan and Ruth for 4 years as a teacher at IA. Students thrived in an accepting environment and were encouraged to find and develop their own sensory supports that could be used both in and outside of school. IA is different in the sense that the students are allowed to take sensory breaks when feeling upset, they also have a portion of the day dedicated to life-skills which prepares students for the real world. As a fitness fanatic I have always loved sports. However for many students with autism, sports can be daunting and overly challenging, often presenting sensory overload. When exploring the relationship between physiological components and autism it became apparent that this population would benefit from an intervention. • Adolescents with autism are more susceptible to weight gain with 19% of the autistic population diagnosed as obese and a further 36% overweight. • Medication, unusual dietary patterns, difficulty self-monitoring and using fine motor skills are just a few issues that individuals with autism face. • Fear of social interactions can make joining a neurotypical sports setting overwhelming and somewhat unrealistic. Many of our students came to class tired and lethargic so we saw a chance and jumped on it. Unfortunately in today’s society, when funds are cut in schools, expressive arts and physical education are often cut. I was fortunate to have the support of the amazing IA staff and our ‘go getter’ Director Marisa Gill. We had the flexibility to incorporate a daily 20 minute morning exercise break in addition to recess and gym. There was a fine line between keeping exercise fun and turning it into a regimen, so we kept it light. Hydrotherapy and horseback riding is highly sought after, however due to our limited space and lack of horses at IA, we made the best out of the parking lot. The key components of health we focused on were muscular strength, endurance, agility, balance and flexibility all in the form of games. Slowly but surely our students came around to the idea and their energy levels increased, they became more alert and some began to choose healthier snacks because it “made them feel better”. One student in particular inspired me to delve a little deeper when he asked if we could begin an after school club because he was getting old (at 14), and he believed it was time for him to get in shape. By Christmas, 50% of our students were attending the after school class and every week they became faster, stronger and most importantly, smiled more. In my opinion, all kids need exercise, I watched our students become true team players. They encouraged one another during gym time and replaced squabbling over equipment with high fives. This is particularly significant when you consider that: Regardless of age or ability, exercise can be incorporated into everyday life. Studies

have shown that increased aerobic exercise can significantly decrease the frequency of negative, self-stimulating behavior. I noticed a significant improvement in mood and positive self talk following exercise time. Many of the classroom distractions such as body rocking, spinning, hand flapping, object-tapping, and light gazing are common in our students. By engaging them in physical activity, we allowed a welcome distraction and as a result saw fewer outbursts. I am very fortunate and grateful to have had the opportunity to work with this fascinating and inspiring group of young people and look forward to further developing autism awareness in our community.

Right in my Own B a c k y a r d by Brandt Carter Community Broad Ripple has a long, long history of community. The businesses, services, and residences of the area have long known the charm, vitality, and diversity of the Village. Here’s a great story of community today. I attended the dedication and ribbon cutting of the Bill Brink Memorial Garden. This linear garden extends along the Monon Trail from 64th street to the Art Center. Not more than fifteen feet wide in parts, the sections display native plants, shrubs, and in some areas, trees. Add to this garden Public Greens’ vegetable garden and walkers have a wonderful path where they can see lots of different kinds of plants. All you have to do is take the time to meander, look at the labeled plants (BTW: don’t remove any labels for labeling is a time consuming task), and enjoy the growing season. The blooms and heights of plants will change weekly. You can see specimens of native plants and discuss if you may want to incorporate them into your backyard. You can also share the garden experience with children by showing them how vegetables are planted and grown. Linda Shikany, Marigold owner and major Brink Garden’s project driver, said, “It is amazing. This garden is more than just plants. It turned out to be a huge community venture. Individuals, businesses, educators, and kids all participated to create the design, selection and planting of the garden. BRICS even treated volunteers from the Blind School to ice cream after they planted a section of the garden!” The people I met were from all walks of life with one shared value–they love Broad Ripple. Business men and women, a doctor and a nurse, a writer, a magazine publisher, Native Plants Association volunteers, a landscaper, a philanthropist, children, a singer, a contractor, Broad Ripple Association folks, and IT people all participated in the event held in the backyard of the Hotel Broad Ripple. The goodwill shared by this group will live on. The plants and trees will be here for decades to come–all because a few people wanted to celebrate the community that Bill Brink loved. So if you are reading this article and you have a community idea, get some friends, talk to the BR Association or some businesses, and begin a project. You never know who you will touch or who will join your cause, but it will be rewarding (That is what the Broad Ripple Gazette is–an all-volunteer community project. -Alan). Broad Ripple is a village, a community. We have the talent and resources to continue the positive way forward and to welcome creativity and showcase community. Just one final note: They do encourage volunteers on their garden days. Stop by Marigold and sign up to volunteer. If you love gardening and have time, what a great way to give back to the village.
