Principal Weldon B. Williams III, Ed.D at Broad Ripple High School.

New Broad Ripple Magnet H.S. Principal By Mario Morone



Weldon B. Williams III, Ed.D. is Broad Ripple Magnet High School’s new principal. He recently described how he choose a career in education. “I was involved in music all my life and I was part of a public school program for quite some time. It was my experience in school music programs and my interest also in working at a high school educational level and college choir that got me interested in teaching. I went to college at Florida A&M and majored in choral music education. After I graduated, I started teaching. Initially, I was going to take a year off to practice for an audition to go to Juilliard for piano performance (he also plays the saxophone) and got my first teaching position instead. I decided to go into the classroom and started teaching,” he explained. Teaching was the prelude of furthering his educational pursuits. “I knew that I wanted to go into the principalship at BRMHS. If I was a principal, I wanted to

do that in an arts environment. I visited Indianapolis a few years ago and wanted to look at it as an option. I asked people what it was like to live and work in Indianapolis. Back in February, a principal position was posted at BRMHS. I decided to apply and was offered an interview opportunity. I like the direction that the Superintendent (Dr. Louis Ferrebee) is going. He’s a visionary figure and a dynamic fit for Indianapolis. After talking with him and Greg Newlin, an academic improvement advisor for the magnet learning community, I became convinced that this district is progressive and wants great things to happen,” Dr. Williams added. His education and music credentials expanded their academic scope. “I have a

mix of backgrounds. I was an assistant band director for two years in Savannah, Georgia. After that, I was choral director and band director on a voluntary basis. It was good experience. After my first teaching stint, I got a full scholarship to Northern Illinois University to study for a master’s degree in music. After taking most of the coursework, I missed teaching students. During the year, I was a choral music director at Mitchell High School in Memphis. It was a development program where I also served as assistant coordinator for the West Tennessee Vocal Music Association with Dr. Marilyn Campbell Melvin, the coordinator for that event. The kids did well. After budget cutbacks, my school at the time was eighth grade through 12th grade. I returned to Atlanta and worked as a high school choral director in a traditional arts and school environment. I decided that I wanted to go into administration. During 2005 and 2006, I had this sudden epiphany. The Education Department of Georgia started talks of changing school administrators to become licensed. Since I had an aspiration to become a principal, I decided to take the leadership exam and passed it. In 2007, I enrolled in Georgia State University to pursue a Specialist in Education degree. During this time, I lived in Atlanta and drove two to three hours per week commuting to class. I got an Ed Spec. degree at Columbus State and knew I wanted to get into a terminal degree program. I got accepted into Georgia Southern University and started there in January of 2009 for the doctorate of education administration,” he said. “When I did my doctorate as a high school music educator, there are a whole lot of nuances that are a natural phenomenon of the job that are unique to being a secondary music school education as in math or science, but in music education, it’s more of an organizational leadership role, just as strong as the organizational role. You deal with budgets, fund raising, parent engagement involvement and managing groups of parents. There’s a whole community dynamic there. One of facets of BRMHS is an arts culture. There’s tons of research involved that students in a rigorous arts and music education have a strong tendency to do well in a cross content area. Arts, music and dance are academic subjects like math, science and social studies. Each area bears a significance in the way that they’re taught if they’re taught well,” Dr. Williams noted. Some objectives in his first year as principal include: development for enhancing community partnerships, establishing a foundation and giving campaign, improving enrollment and recruitment practices, enhancing instruction practices and making significant gains in student achievement. He reflected on the rewarding aspects of his career so far. “I would have to say that making music with students, student growth and their personal maturity through being a part of the public school programs has been rewarding. I emphasize public school programs, accessing college opportunities as a result of being the arts and music programs and just seeing the students becoming great people.” Dr. Weldon B. Williams III brings a unique blend in music education and teaching to Broad Ripple Magnet High School as he leads its faculty, staff and students into a new era.

Poetic Thoughts

by C.W. Pruitt II

Town with Nora Spitznogle 2 on Memory I wrote the following two poems on September 15, 2015. The second poem is about Greg Brown. He passed in 2012. Greg owned Utrillo’s Art Gallery in Indianapolis. I will always remember him for helping homeless artists sell their work. the memory fades and fades and fades then it hangs there its essence remains palpable only in the ether fragile and fleeting swimming and floating and constantly vaguely emoting it is always a good time to resurrect the dead

To: Greg Brown his photograph is push-pinned prominently in the sacred space in my room i do not feature greg brown merely to evoke his memory or to pay tribute to the patron saint of impoverished artists his photograph is here so that greg brown may live with me and the humble gentle man may reside within me

Tis the season for holiday fun and perhaps a bit of shopping stress. The gift of music is always appreciated and we’re lucky to have two independent record stores in our neighborhood. The staff at Indy CD & Vinyl (806 Broad Ripple Avenue) and LUNA music (5202 N. College Ave) are more than happy to help you pick out music or great equipment or other goodies for the folks on your list.

One Voice, One Guitar Finals Friday, December 4 Birdy’s Live 2131 E. 71st Street - 21+, doors 8:00 PM, $10

After weeks of competition the final singer/songwriters will take the stage one more time and the winner will be crowned. Well, I don’t know if they get an actual crown, but they do get to take the Taylor guitar home that has been used for the competition. I’ve enjoyed this series – the event is focused on the songs. Each performer has used the same guitar – no pedals, no band, no backup singers. And the audience has a voice – your vote counts. The lineup is: 8:30 Eli Chastain, 9:10 Chad Mills, 9:50 A.J. Sandlin, 10:30 Emily Myren, 11:10 Jeff Kelly, 11:50 Henry French. There will also be a performance by last year’s winner, Landon Keller. I’ll see you there!

Nora managed CATH Inc coffeehouse at 54th Street and College Avenue for seven years. During that time she hosted hundreds of local and touring musicians, both at the coffeehouse and her home. When CATH closed in 2004 and the music was no longer coming to her, she had to wander from her corner of Broad Ripple to see what is happening elsewhere. You can find her at Second Helpings during the work day, waitressing at the Red Key on Saturday nights and prowling Broad Ripple music venues the rest of the time.

Rules on page 7.

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

Steals and Deals As a working broadcast-journalist and omnimedia wine specialist, I get a lot of interesting email from all kinds of organizations. Including the U.S. Marshals. This week one caught my eye as it was the perfect marriage of wine and crime. An online auction of authentic, rare wine, nearly 5000 bottles, that belonged to a man now serving time in a federal prison. Here is what it said. “The U.S. Marshals will auction approximately 4,711 bottles of wine, deemed authentic, that belonged to Rudy Kurniawan, the man convicted of fraud in federal court in 2013 for producing and selling millions of dollars of counterfeit wine.” Interesting eh? But it gets better. “The wine will be sold in two online auctions, one starting Nov. 24 and one starting Dec. 1, at www.txauction.com.” I took a peek at the link. An extraordinary collection of very old, mainly Pinot Noir with a smattering of Champagne and some California reds. By the way, the 39-year-old Kurniawan is serving 10 years in a California prison. No word on whether or not he gets wine with his meals. Even at auction the Kurniawan Cache is still WAY out of my price range. Pinot Noir is a tricky grape to vint, but when handled properly it becomes an elegant medium bodied red wine. Affordable easy to find brands include Marimar Estates, Cartlidge & Browne, The Crossings, Coppola Director’s Cut, De Loach and Toad Hollow. Toad Hollow also makes a lush,full bodied merlot packed with dark fruit aromas and flavors, with a hint of mocha on the finish. The label and cork add an extra smile, making this a good bottle for gift giving as well. Unless you’re Mr. Kurniawan.

Clue: N equals I 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 1 in the left section of the middle row which contains 2-3-8. The 1 in the center section eliminates the spaces to the left and right of the 3. The 1 in the right section of the middle row eliminates the spaces to right of the 2. The 1 in the left section of the bottom row eliminates the three spaces the right most column of the section. The only place left is to the left of the 8. You have learned one technique needed to solve Sudoku puzzles. There are many more.

A few weeks ago, my husband along with 14,000 others participated in one of the events of the Monumental Marathon (which included a full/half marathon as well as a 5K course). It was a glorious and sunny fall day which definitely helped in making this event such an asset to Indianapolis. This year marked its eighth running with a record number of finishers, making it currently in the top 20 largest in the country. Runners hailing from 49 states and 10 countries were present this year. Given its awesome course it is no surprise why! No offense to the mini-marathon; I run it about every year, and it is a great and fun event. Running around the IMS track is pretty cool. But, other than that, the route isn’t particularly interesting, in my opinion. On the other hand, I feel The Monumental course highlights several landmarks and neighborhoods that make our city one of the best in the country. The race begins in the heart of downtown and immediately passes by Lucas Oil Stadium. It then heads over to the vibrant and hip area of Mass. Ave area where I, along with other small business owners stood cheering on the runners holding my “high five” posters for them to slap. Seeing them smile and go out of their way to give it a hit was inspiring! After heading north through historic Northside, the course heads up into my beloved ‘hood of Meridian-Kessler around mile 10. Hundreds if not thousands of residents were out to support the athletes; Including some more jovial folk who were hanging out Dixie cups of beer and bacon :). After passing by Broad Ripple at the halfway point, the run heads south on Meridian St. towards Butler University where the coeds were out passing out water and energy gels to the growingly weary, yet appreciative, participants. After passing through the IMA gardens, the course eventually leads them back downtown where thousands of people emphatically congratulated the finishers as the crossed the line for their last step. On top of having a world class course, the Monumental Marathon organizers also boast charitable contributions to the community. This year alone, it raised $141,000 for public education which included the IPS Education Foundation, Simon Youth Foundation, and Teachers Treasures. In regards to wellness promotion, the Monumental Kids Movement, launched in 2013, is a 9-week youth running program focusing on exercise, diet and healthy living. Seventy-five percent attendance is required during the bi-weekly program and the students earn a free 5K entry. About 1000 finished the 5K this year, and one was my friend’s 9-year-old daughter who finished her first organized race and had an amazing experience. What a cool program!! Lastly, the Apex Monumental Challenge is directed toward employee wellness which encourages friendly competition between Indiana based employers. Over 30 companies and 500 employees participated. As you hopefully gather, this event is a positive and asset not only to one’s health and wellness but to the community as a whole. If you have ever thought about trying one of the events yourself, I say go for it!! Or at the very least go out and volunteer or cheer those rocks stars on ;). One last point, I understand that the road closures can be frustrating at the least, but it’s one morning a year so hopefully all of the positive attributes of this event make the small hassle worthwhile.

Right in my Own B a c k y a r d by Brandt Carter Peanuts, Peanuts – Get Those Peanuts Feeding birds is one of the most gratifying activities you can do in your yard. If you are already doing so or might be enticed to start, I have an idea for you beyond the traditional sunflower seeds, suet and seed mixes to attract different birds. The tip: peanuts. If you have not fed nuts to the birds you are missing out on a something great. Peanuts show up in mixes, suet, or just by themselves. Nut eating birds include the Chickadee, Chipping Sparrow, Woodpecker, Gray Catbird, House Finch, Tufted Titmouse, Northern Cardinal, Nuthatch, Common Grackle, and European Starling. Crows and Blue Jays especially like peanuts in the shell. They like taking the whole nut to store for later when they need food. You’ll get the best peanuts (cracked, broken, or whole, in or out of the shell) from a birdfeed store. The cost is affordable, and the best part of feeding peanuts is there is little or no mess by the birds. Peanuts for birds are feed-grade, having been rejected for human consumption, and they need to be fresh. This suggestion to expand the banquet you offer birds will also appeal to squirrels and other varmints so you may want to add baffles to your bird feeders. Squirrel-proof feeders are readily available too. There are wonderful peanuts feeders that are easy to clean and easy to fill. I have had my peanut feeders hanging over a wood deck and over flower beds. There is no mess under either feeder. Yeah! I particularly delight in watching woodpeckers at a peanut feeder outside my bedroom window. Another option is to use a mesh or metal feeder with holes that the birds will cling to peck at the peanuts. This seems to keep birds in view longer as they devour the nutty morsels. There are also peanut feeders designed with larger holes or wiring resembling a slinky. These are made especially for whole peanuts in the shell. Feeding whole peanuts does leave discarded shells, but the critters that take to peanuts are interesting. Nuts, a healthy source of fat to maintain skin and feathers, are a high-calorie food providing birds plenty of energy for an entire day. Nuts are especially popular as a winter bird food because they are long-lasting. You can feed other kinds of nuts but be sure they are not salted. Humangrade nuts are too expensive to feed birds very often. You can also smear peanut butter on a tree trunk or add dabs to a platform or tray feeder. Whether nuts are whole or in pieces, in or out of shells, birds will appreciate. You may even see some new birds! Brandt Carter, artist, herbalist, and naturalist, owns Backyard Birds at 2374 E. 54th Street. Visit her web site www.feedbackyardbirds.com. Email your bird questions to Brandt@BroadRippleGazette.com
