New taxi-only zone on the Avenue Thanks to a news tip from Hardwickes Tobacco about new taxi zone signs being installed along the south side of Broad Ripple Avenue, the Gazette started investigating. We discovered that an additional 21 parking spots on the Avenue had been lost to visitors after 9pm on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays. The taxionly zone now includes every meter between College and Guilford. After 9pm on ThursdaySaturday any cars parked there will be towed. This new wave included three ADA spaces. The Gazette pointed this out to the City and the signs were removed from those three meters. Businesses we talked to still feel that the other 18 lost parking spots will drive visitors into the neighborhood to park, a situation deemed as both a public safety issue and a neighborhood nuisance issue by previous parking studies. The total number of meters dedicated to taxis is now 36 between College and Guilford, 18 on the north and 18 on the south. The Broad Ripple Village Association stated, “The meters on the North side of BR Avenue have been designated for taxis for a number of years, maybe 10. The South side was approved One of the three ADA meters mis-tagged as taxi zone. by City-County Council 27-2 back in April, based on the increased use of Ubers that have increased the number of pickups and dropoffs on the Ave on weekends. IMPD has mentioned the confusion and chaos that the uptick has caused and their desire to park their vehicles on the side of the street rather than in the middle of it.”

Banner Artist of the issue The banner artist of this issue is Junior Mclean. “I am originally a Bronx native of NYC having been inspired by my mom whose abstracts artworks have been a big influence in creativity allowed myself to be creative on my own and as I began drawing and learning my own skills. I taught myself to be creative in digital art work for over 5 years mostly showcasing digital prints at New York public libraries within the Bronx and for a time lived in Anderson, Indiana when I began showcasing my digital fractal printed artworks at a few locations, such as Noblesville Humane Society and Brandon’s Coffee Bistro and later my artworks appeared in the Herald Bulletin in 2007 and the Broad Ripple Gazette in 2007 and during the same year my work was featured at Broad Ripple Park. Currently, my works can be seen online from these following links. instagram.com/ juniorsdigitaldesigns and www.facebook.com/juniorsdigitaldesigns

The “pump house” on Illinois just south of Kessler.

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


Part Four “One that we just talked about is the College Station. The other one is over on Illinois Street, and you may not even know it’s a pump station, it looks like a house,” said Ed Malone (Director Water Production Citizens Energy Group). What!? More hidden structures that I pass every day and don’t see? “Where is it?” I asked. “It’s just south of Kessler Boulevard, on the west side of Illinois. You know where the park is right there at Kessler and Illinois? Directly to the south of that,” said Ed. “It really does look like a house,” added Sarah Holsapple (Media Relations for Citizens). This pump station is built to look like a house so it blends in with the neighborhood. It isn’t a secret, there are often Citizens trucks parked there, it is just trying to fit it. Continuing in this area of the city I asked about a structure in Alice Carter Park, between Meridian Street and Westfield Boulevard at 57th. Ed explained that the little building in the park is a sewage pump station. That is a Citizens station because it deals with sewage. If it were a storm sewer pump station The small building in Alice Carter Park. then it would belong to the City of Indianapolis. Ed and Sarah reiterated that Citizens owns drinking water and sewage systems and the City of Indianapolis owns the storm sewer system. I know that this is further complicated by the portions of the system where Indy has combined storm and sewage, but this is not the place for that discussion. This storm sewer dumping into the river discussion took me back to Broad Ripple. Back in May of 2012 there was a heavy rain on the Northside. The normal operation of the storm sewer in Broad Ripple is for the curb storm drains to gather the rain water and channel it into the storm sewer. The sewers combine into a large pipe that ends at a very large concrete structure on the west bank of the White River at about Coil Street and Westfield Boulevard. This structure allows the storm sewer to empty into White River, downstream of the dam and the canal. There are strong gates across the face of it that can be controlled by a mechanism at the top. That mechanism was visible from driving by on Westfield Boulevard, but now The sewer gates east of Westfield Boulevard as they open to the White River. The north gate is open in this picture.

is not, possibly because of the levee. Someone, either an official worker or someone possibly using that structure for shelter, had closed the gates. The water quickly filled in the sewer system until it hit the closed gates, then kablooey! Manhole covers all over the Village blew off and geysers appeared in the streets. The streets photo by C. "Frog" Russell quickly flooded and even This geyser was probably 6 feet tall on Cornell Avenue. overflowed into several businesses along Westfield Boulevard, doing damage. “There was so much flow, when it came over the banks of the canal it eroded the banks very badly”, recalled Ed. Next I asked about the very large boulders that line the entrance on both ends of the red Monon train bridge that is now part of the Monon Trail as it crosses the canal. Ed said that the stones were not placed there by Citizens. That was part of the Greenways project to improve the Monon Trail. Boulders at the entrance to the Monon canal bridge.

Speaking of bridges, I asked about numerous ones that cross the canal, there are original car bridges and several newly built and some historic ones (or at least they are built to look historic) that have been placed for foot traffic. “There’s a neat old [bridge] at Butler, in Holcomb Gardens. Across the canal,” I mentioned. “Well, that’s a fairly new bridge,” replied Ed. “Right, but it’s got an old tag on it, so...” Ed explained, “It’s a repositioned bridge.” Meaning that it could an old bridge that has been moved here. This bridge at Butler is a pedestrian pathway from the Central Canal Trail into Holcomb Gardens. “But that’s not water company’s property,” I added Ed replied, “No, we no longer own any of the bridges that cross the canal. All of the bridges that cross the canal are either owned by DPW or others - Greenways, Art Museum, Butler. So, we are no longer in the bridge business. Decades and decades ago, all of the bridges across the canal used to be the utility’s responsibility, and owned by the utility. But that is not true any more.”

Buzzing Around Town with Nora Spitznogle One Voice, One Guitar Competition Fridays, through November 20 Birdy’s Live 2131 E. 71st Street - 21+, $5, doors 8:00 PM

It is a great premise – one voice and one guitar. Seriously, just one guitar. Each musician play will the same Taylor guitar throughout the seven weeks of competition. The show is focused on just the performer and the songs they want to share. No band or pyrotechnics or pedals. One guitar and one musician. Each week three performers advance to the next round. By my calculation the competitions will be happening each Friday, through November 20, but my math could be wrong. The lineup for October 16th is: Michael Pearson 8:30pm Jeff Kelly 10pm Brad Kleinschmidt 9pm Danni McPherron 10:30pm Chris Wolf 9:30pm Mike Boo 11pm CL James 11:30pm


Paul Holdman and friends Friday, October 23 Jazz Kitchen 5377 N. College Ave - 21+, 7:30 and 9:00 PM, $12

What an all-star lineup this is! Paul Holdman released his most excellent album, In the Hands of God, this April and has gathered the lovely musicians who played on the record for a show at the Jazz Kitchen. The performers are: Paul Holdman, Jennie DeVoe, Tad Robinson, Rebekah Meldrum, Jeff Chapin, and David Murray. I would go see any of the musicians individually in concert – to have them all on one stage will be extra-special. The band will be performing the music from Paul’s album, as well as some special songs from each of the singers. As always there is a great menu (with a Second Helpings grad in the kitchen) and stellar cocktails.

Freda Love Smith book release: Red Velvet Underground Sunday, October 25 Bookmamas 9 Johnson Ave (Irvington) - all-ages, free, 2:00 – 4:00 PM

I actually squealed when I heard about this. Freda Love Smith has written a rock memoir, with recipes! Freda is a famed indie-rock drummer with ties to Indianapolis. Twenty-five years after she started playing in popular bands, she tells the story of her evolving career and family life through the significant role that food has played in both her rock-and-roll past and her home-life present. Red Velvet Underground – let’s take a moment to appreciate the sheer wonderfulness of the title – intersperses forty-five recipes with the story of Freda’s musical past – exploring cooking, eating, music, and family, and how each one has shaped her life over the decades. This memoir is loosely framed around the cooking lessons Freda gives her eldest son. Along the way, she recounts stories of starting her music career, forming new bands (in one of which – Antenna – she met her future husband, Jake Smith), going on the road, and pursuing work in and out of music as she raises her two sons, Jonah and Henry. I got to read a pre-release advance chapter of the book. She talks about touring with the Blake Babies, eating well while touring nationally, and included a recipe for blueberry pie. Her writing is warm and lovely, I felt like I was standing on the kitchen with her talking about music and food – two of my favorite subjects. Freda is currently a lecturer in the School of Communication at Northwestern University. She is the co-founder of the bands the Blake Babies, Antenna, and the Mysteries of Life, writes a monthly column for Paste, and has published short stories in journals such as The North American Review, SmokeLong, Bound Off, and Riptide. In other words, she’s full of awesome. She’ll be at Bookmamas bookstore, speaking about her book, in conversationstyle with Dale Lawrence from The Vulgar Boatmen. The book will appeal to fans of Freda’s music career, parents, and home cooks alike.

Kids Ink Bookstore book signing - Sarah Schmitt

RJ, the queen of her high school, gets what she wants. It just happens, and everyone that doesn’t understand that regrets it. When she finds herself in Purgatory thanks to a ‘clerical error’ (and becomes a pawn in a political game between opposing celestial forces), what she wants suddenly doesn’t matter as much as what she can do to keep her very soul from tearing the Afterlife apart. Doing that may mean rewriting her history, but if she does, will RJ even recognize herself anymore?

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

Citizens Energy responds on flood wall concerns

Citizens Energy Group has responded to Warfleigh residents on their concerns with the proposed flood wall. Here is Citizens response (posted by Jim Polito from the group on the SaveTheWarfleigh. org website): “Citizens Energy Group (CEG) strongly supports the city’s efforts on the North Flood Damage Reduction Project and the opportunity it is providing to examine the option of protecting the CEG central canal. The U.S. Army Corp of Engineers (USACE) has stated they do not have a well-developed approach on how to address CEG’s water supply canal, as it

is a very unique infrastructure element. As such, the USACE (Army Corps of Engineers) appears to have made assumptions of no impact, which do not match the real technical and operational concerns of CEG, as the owner and operator of the canal. The following are summary points of how the flood gate would impact the canal’s water supply and fire protection of up to 60% of the Citizens Water service area. 1) The operation of a floodgate across the canal causes several operational issues which lead to the disruption of source water to the largest CEG water treatment plant, the White River Treatment Plant (WRTP) which produces 68 million gallons (MG) of the 130 MG of the average daily production… 2) The water supply to the WRTP is by gravity flow which is controlled by the Broad Ripple gate 6.5 miles upstream of the WRTP. The water takes about 9 hours to reach the WRTP…. 3) The Corps asserts during a flood event the canal will receive floodwater to replace the loss of normal flow. The WRTP would be completely out of source water 3 to 5 hours after the flood gate is closed…. In summary, operating a flood control gate structure in the canal will result in a disruption to the water supply to the WRTP simply because of the time involved in stopping and restarting the flow to the WRTP. …”

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

The Grocery Gallop I’ve lost track of the number of MEGA GROCERY stores opening in and around the Broad Ripple area. I’m still not sure if I need 65 choices of yogurt or want to have a martini after I stroll the cereal aisle. But more options of where to go to get your bacon, also means more places to buy your wine. Gone are the days when grocery store wine tasted like, well, grocery store wine. Back in the late 90’s when Marsh Supermarkets was still locally owned, it was the first to add wines that could only be found in liquor stores to its wine section. Then Michigan based Meijer came to town and brought its large wine inventory philosophy with it. Soon after, other established grocers, big and small, were adding more bottles from around the country and the world to store shelves. Then came the cavalcade of specialty/organic groceries offering specialty/organic wines. Choice is good. I first sampled the Dark Horse brand about 4 years ago when it had yet to hit the Indiana market. Now it’s widely available. The Cabernet Sauvignon is dark and rich. The Red Blend is full bodied and smooth. The Chardonnay has just enough oak to add a soft touch of vanilla to the fruity dry white. NEW to the market are its Pinot Noir and Sauvignon Blanc. The former, fresh and easy drinking. The latter dry and crisp with soft notes of lemon grass, herbs and a soft zing of grapefruit. Most of these food-friendly, affordable wines are screw-capped too, so no need for a corkscrew. And since it’s almost impossible to find a grocery store that doesn’t already have your breakfast-lunch-snack-dinner-ready-to-go, the only choice you have to make is what plate and glass to use when you get home. 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.

Thinking about buying a professional camera to get those professional-looking results? The new smart phone cameras are becoming so smart; some savvy know-how may be all you need. Indianapolis photographer Rad by Vanessa Cleary A. Drew, widely known for his unique “I-Phone photography,� displayed his works in a new show at Tarkington Tower, 4000 N. Meridian Street, Friday evening. His exhibit runs through October 27. Although a professional photographer for years, his approach to photography changed dramatically after buying his first iPhone in 2010. Carrying his iPhone with him all the time gives him more opportunities to spontaneously shoot what he sees. Whether raw or manipulated, his results are stunning.

7-story proposals at Sept. Land Use mtg By Alan Hague

alan@broadripplegazette.com There were five items on the agenda for the September 22nd public meeting of the Broad Ripple Village Association (BRVA) Land Use and Development committee at the Indianapolis Art Center’s Basille Auditorium. A. 6174 Winthrop Avenue, George Dury with Dury Investment Group regarding the establishment of a hair salon in this location. This was for feedback only, as nothing had been filed with the City yet. The proposal is to put a hair salon into the house on the northwest corner of 62nd and Winthrop, south of School 80. Next door to the west is a dentist. The salon would have 2-3 booths. The exterior would be refreshed, but left to look like a home. The feedback from the committee was that it would be preferable to limit the variance with Department of Metropolitan Development to only allowing a salon. The general, unrestricted variance would allow for many other uses, if approved. B. 715 Broad Ripple Avenue, Greg Ginrich and Peter Watson, regarding the establishment of a 3-way liquor permit at this location. This is a liquor license for Hot Box Pizza. The petitioner assured the committee that the license is for catering only and would never be used to serve alcohol in the restaurant. The committee agreed to support the license application to the Alcoholic Beverage Board downtown if there was a written commitment that it will be used only for catering. C. 6320 Ferguson Street, Brian Touhy and/or Walter Freihofer regarding establishing a restaurant at this location. It is presently a medical office. This building was previously the offices for Dr. Himelstein and others in the west half, and the offices of Albertson’s Mortuary on the east half. The presentation tonight was for information only, as no papers had yet been filed with the City. The proposal is to renovate the existing building to turn it into a restaurant with 120 seats inside and 50-60 outside. One of the developers also owns Tavern on South downtown and this is proposed to be a similar establishment. The committee generally approved of this plan. A vote will come after a variance has been applied for.

Oct 16 - Oct 29, 2015

D. 6311 Westfield Boulevard, Ryan Gallmeyer with Buckingham Companies for a presentation on the redevelopment of the site. Information only. As nothing had yet been filed, this too was for information and feedback only. This is the site at the headgates of the canal (you know where that is if you have been reading our canal series), just to the north of Brugge Brasserie and McDonald’s. The current 3-story office building would be razed and a 110,000 sq. ft, 104 unit apartment building would replace it. It would also include 5000 sq. ft of commercial space. It would tie into a possible future boardwalk to Broad Ripple Park, along the river. E. 5858 N. College Avenue, J.B. Curry with TWG Development regarding the updated site plans and elevations for a multi-family project and rezoning of this area. This proposal is just south of the official Renderings from the proposed apts on the BRVA boundaries and was presented as a river at the canal headgates - 6311 Westfield courtesy. It is a proposal for the site of the old Indiana Bell building south of Kessler on College. It is for the south building only, the north building and the corner lot are not included. The name of the project is The Link at Kessler. It is proposed to have 205 apartment units and 3000 sq. ft. of office space. There was a considerable neighborhood presence at the meeting in opposition. Because there will be future official meetings for the project that will allow for public remonstration, the BRVA committee limited the audience feedback tonight to brief comments.

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. Let’s start with the easy puzzle. We will try to put a 7 in the right section of the bottom row which contains 2-3-9. The 7 in the middle section of the bottom row eliminates the spaces to the right of the 2. The 7 in the right section of the top row eliminates the spaces above and below the 3. The 7 in the right section of the middle row eliminates the spaces above the 2. The only place left is directly below the 9. You have learned one technique needed to solve Sudoku puzzles. There are many more.

Gettin’ Ripped in Ripple by Laura Minor

Be A HILL-Billy! It’s that time of year again already! Do you remember when you were a kid and the “older” people would tell you that time starts to fly pretty much after the age of 30? Well, it is certainly true, which I am sure you may have noticed as well. What I mean by the time of year is another Hilly Hundred bike ride in southern Indiana with my husband, sister and father. This has become a yearly tradition for us four in the last five years…and I intend to keep it up while, at the very least, my father (who will be 75 in November) keeps participating. This is undoubtedly his favorite event of every year and it clearly shows as he gets very excited and diligently prepares for the weekend ahead. This will be his 15th year of riding this gorgeous terrain which includes rolling hills, fall foliage, farm land and animals, small towns with friendly people, and so on. By the time you read this, we will have finished the ride which occurs October 10th and 11th, and I will very likely have a sore bum! When I tell people that we are going to ride 100 miles in two days, each year people look at me cross-eyed with that “you really ARE nuts!” expression on their faces. But let me tell you…it truly isn’t that crazy, in fact, I hardly call myself a cyclist. I don’t even own a road bike. I own a 10-year-old mountain bike that I typically ride around Indy when en route to a craft brewery . What I love about the Hilly is that it isn’t a race by any means. It is a noncompetitive tour of Morgan-Monroe county. Sure some people race it, but the vast majority are out in nature enjoying the moment. If a hill is too difficult, it is common for many people to get off and walk (I haven’t had to yet but have come VERY close). The “start time” is whenever you so choose to begin as long as you can get in the 50 miles for that day by 4:00pm. Another very appealing and mentally refreshing aspect of the ride is how well the event takes care of the riders. Roads are clearly marked off, SAG wagons are all over to attend to any needs and there are over 400 awesome volunteers. Safety is number one priority to the race organizers and it clearly shows. Also, each day, there are 3 break spots along the route complete with LIVE entertainment (likely a folk or bluegrass band) and yummy food for both carnivores and vegetarians. We definitely take advantage of these break spots as they come roughly each 15 miles. So, when you wrap your head around 15 miles, it doesn’t sound that crazy anymore right?! All ages are present from young children to elderly. I am amazed by how many very young children are out there tackling those hills! The course boasts participants from over 40 states and has won multiple awards from Bicycling magazine including: Best Overall Event, Longest Running Event, Largest Event, Best Map, and Best Entertainment. The Hilly will even store your bike at the high school where both day’s rides begin, so you don’t have to hassle with anything when you are done with your day. So, what are you waiting for? If you might be considering giving the Hilly Hundred a try I urge you to do so. The scenery can’t be beat, it is a great way to get out in nature, away from the hustle and bustle of daily life, and enjoy the moment; all while getting in some exercise (Of course I had to add that ). If you have any additional questions feel free to shoot me an email…and if I can’t answer them my dad certainly can! Laura Minor owner and operator of So.Be.Fit. Personal Training and Fitness studio located at 54th and the Monon.

Fall Color’s Magic Sing a song of seasons! Something bright in all, Flowers in the summer Fires in the fall!

-Robert Louis Stevenson, Autumn Fires

Just by walking the neighborhoods of Broad Ripple and visiting local parks, you can enjoy autumn. Seeing fiery red maple, tawny oak, or yellow tulip trees draws you into fall’s colorful palate. Sun casts added drama with its golden glow. More than romance, poetry, and celebrations of harvest, the science of this beauty is what makes the season awesome. I’m always amazed by how different autumns can be—some dry, some drab, some wet, some vibrant. The color change is endlessly variable too. I remember when leaves turned by October 10. More recently, the peak of color has been in late October. So what causes leaves to transform, a phenomenon we can all enjoy even in our own backyards? The answer begins with spring and summer. Trees and shrubs are basically green, and for a grade school review, the leaves contain chlorophyll. This makes them green. When days start getting shorter, the chlorophyll disappears so that trees shut down their food making to live through winter without leaves. Length of nights and the cooler weather affect the color we see. Warm sunlight by day and cool nights cause the glucose in change-prone leaves to turn bright red or purple. The brown color of oaks and other trees is formed from waste left as chlorophyll fades away. Three pigments contribute to colorful leaves: • Anthocyanins give blues and dark red color • Chlorophyll gives leaves their basic green; trees us it to produce sugars—their food. • Carotenoids produce yellow, orange, and brown colors. Temperature and moisture are primary influences for vibrant colors. A series of warm, sunny days and cool, crisp, but not freezing nights seems to bring about the most spectacular color displays. Sugars are produced in the leaf during warm fall days while cooling spurs production of the brilliant anthocyanin pigments, which yield reds, purples, and crimson. Because carotenoids are always present in leaves, yellow and gold leaves are fairly constant from year to year. Droughts or abundance of rain also affect the intensity of colors. Droughts can delay fall color whereas warm days and nights can dull coloration. The best fall color is supposed to be produced by a warm, wet spring, a favorable summer weather pattern, followed by those warm sunny autumn days and cool nights. Because temperatures and rainfall vary from year to year, there are any number of combinations influencing color patterns. Surely the majestic beauty of colorful trees is one of the greatest attractions of this season, and we have only to wait to see what Mother Nature has is store for us each year.
