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


Part Seven For those readers just discovering this series on the canal now in its 7th part, I will explain why the canal is important and why the Gazette is doing this series. The dam that created the Central Canal was built on the White River in 1936 and the Town of Broad Ripple grew up around it. It is why we are here today. For years the canal has supplied the City of Indianapolis with 60% of its fresh water which is processed for our clean water supply.

Continuing with the dredging system in the canal…This system, which has since been removed, included a dredging boat with a hose to the shore. Large pumps along the canal pumped the silt- and weed root-laden water through large plastic piping that ran along the waterline of the canal and exited in huge silt bags by the Butler athletic field and behind the Riviera Club. The clean water seeped through the bags and went back into the canal. Ed Malone, director of water production at Citizens, added, “We’re removing the sediment, capturing the organics and the debris, and putting the super-native, clean water back into the canal.” I asked, “So the cutting is over? It’s all dredging now?” Ed said, “Well, the dredging is going on right now, eventually we may have to go back to cutting. But for right now the dredging is helping us, in terms of it’s not allowing [pond weeds] to re-propagate.” “But new stuff (milfoil seeds and such) is coming in all the time from the river,” I added. “Yes, but since we’re removing the sediment and removing the root balls for the plant itself, it’s not as easy for it to [take root].” I asked, “Is it something that is going to end, or is this like an on-going thing?” Edwin Morris, operations and maintenance supervisor (oversees all canal activities) at Citizens, answered, “The project should be coming to an end by the end of this summer (2015). First of the fall they should be done, completely done, the majority of the canal. They’ve still got the area down south of 30th Street coming this direction (south). But from 30th to Broad Ripple should be complete this year.” Ed added, “The benefit of restoring the canal’s carrying capacity is that it is a huge advantage for us to be able to convey that water without pumping it. So, the more water we can convey to this treatment plant without having to supplement it by pumping the better off it is for us.” I piped in, “And us (the customers), we would have to pay for that pumping.”

The City’s Department of Public Works (DPW) announced today the selection of the Westfield Blvd. alignment to complete the southern portion--known as Phase 3B--of the Indianapolis North Flood Damage Reduction Project (INFDRP). The project, which is a joint effort between the City and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE), involves the construction of a levee on the City’s north side. The total project cost including the already completed Phases 3A and 3C is an estimated $40 million, with the City contributing about 25 percent and the USACE contributing about 75 percent. Upon completion, the levee will protect the Broad Ripple, Warfleigh, Meridian-Kessler and Butler-Tarkington neighborhoods from flood damage and burdensome flood insurance requirements. The levee is being constructed in three phases: Phase 3A, the Warfleigh Section, was constructed between September 2002 and July 2004. Phase 3C, the Monon-Broad Ripple Section was completed in 2009. Phase 3B, known as the South Warfleigh Section, involves the construction of a floodwall and earthen levee along the east bank of the White River and the water supply canal, from Kessler Blvd. to termination on high ground at the downstream end of the project at Butler University. The first portion of the Phase 3B earthen levee was constructed in 2012. Since 1996, the City and USACE have studied multiple alternatives for the alignment of Phase 3B. The initial USACE analysis included a floodwall adjacent to the Central Canal west bank towpath and terminating along the towpath embankment near the Butler University athletic fields; this alternative is known as the Canal West Bank Alternative. However, USACE determined this course was technically and economically infeasible due to the prevailing soil conditions in the area. In 2013, USACE recommended in its 2013 Final Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement (FSEIS) the Westfield Blvd. Alternative as its final proposed action for the remaining section of the Phase 3B Alignment. USACE also presented the Illinois St. Variation as an additional, feasible alternative; however, in June 2014 after gathering public input, the City officially rejected the Illinois St. Variation as a viable alternative, and USACE recommended the Westfield Blvd. Alignment as its final proposed action. In December 2014, after receiving more public input, the City initiated its own feasibility analysis for the Canal West Bank Alternative. The analysis, completed on behalf of the City, determined that the Canal West Bank Alignment did not offer a similar assurance of accreditation as the Westfield Blvd. Alignment. Accreditation is key to reducing or removing flood insurance requirements for residents in the affected area. As a result, the City is authorizing USACE to proceed with final planning, design and construction of the Westfield Blvd. Alignment. The City and USACE are coordinating with Citizens Energy Group and have identified a solution to address issues pertaining to ongoing operations of the water supply canal and drinking water reliability. Upon completion of construction, USACE and the City will submit as-built construction documents and applicable engineering design data to the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA). This submission will be for the purpose of obtaining a Letter of Map Revision (LOMR), which would reduce mapped floodplain boundaries for the Broad Ripple, Warfleigh, Meridian-Kessler and ButlerTarkington neighborhoods. Upon acceptance by FEMA, flood control district development restrictions may be reduced or removed for the neighborhoods. Additionally, the acceptance by FEMA may reduce or eliminate flood insurance requirements for the properties affected by the project. It is anticipated that reducing development restrictions and alleviating flood insurance requirements will foster increased economic development opportunities in the area. For further information on the Indianapolis North Flood Damage Reduction Project (INFDRP), visit the City’s project website here - http://bit.ly/1Yg66ro.

It should be noted that Rocky Ripple is not mentioned as one of the protected communities. This decision puts the new levee wall across the canal and runs it down the east bank between the canal and Westfield Boulevard. - Editor

“Yes,” Ed said. “In 2012, we had issues with the carrying velocity and the cross sections of the canal. We actually had to put pumps, up between the Monon bridge and the Westfield bridge. We had pumps in the horizontal position, trying to increase the velocity going down the canal.” I recalled, “Oh yes, and it caused a lot of…” Ed jumped in, “Turbulence right there (pointing at the photo I brought from 2012 see photo on page 1). That was to increase the carrying velocity...it was to increase the velocity coming down the canal to overcome the head that was there because of the restrictions of the cross section. What we’re doing with the dredging is restoring that cross section so that we don’t have the hydraulic losses coming down the canal.” “There’s a limitation on how much the river can push down the canal?” I asked. “Yes,” Ed replied, “head (the pressure of the water from gravity) is very important to us. The head that we can maintain is very important to us. We’re dealing with less than two feet, basically from here...in seven miles (from Broad Ripple to treatment plant)...only two feet of head we’re dealing with. That’s not a lot of incline.” While we were talking about the silt bags at the Riviera Club, I asked about the large water processing building that is right there, behind the diving tank. Ed replied, “That building is a sewage pump station. That’s a treatment plant actually. That one is ours. That one is what’s called the Riviera. It is not only a pump station, but it also has the ability to treat the effluent. It treats the effluent, meaning from the combined sewer overflows before it goes to the river. So that actually treats and has the ability to hold over a million gallons. So, if it’s a minor storm event, it will hold all of it and none of it will go to the river. And then, once it has reached its capacity, it holds it, and then pumps it back into the sewer system for treatment. If the flow is more than what can be accommodated in the facility, then it treats what is going to the river as effluent. It does do partial treatment, meaning chlorination.”

Parks, Urban Open Space Award: Call for Entries

The Urban Land Institute (ULI) today announced that it’s now accepting entries for its Urban Open Space Award, an annual program that recognizes outstanding examples of successful large- and smallscale public spaces that have socially enriched and revitalized the economy of their surrounding communities. The Institute will accept entries until February 22, 2015. To be eligible for the competition, an open space project must have been opened to the public for at least one year and no more than 15 years; be predominantly outdoors and inviting to the public; provide abundant and varied seating, sun and shade, trees and plantings with attractions; be used intensively on a daily basis by a broad spectrum of users throughout the year; have a positive economic impact on its surroundings; promote physical, social, and economic health of the larger community; and provide lessons, strategies, and techniques that can be used or adapted in other communities. The award was created through the generosity of Amanda M. Burden, former New York City planning commissioner and 2009 laureate of the ULI J.C. Nichols Prize for Visionaries in Urban Development. In 2011, the Kresge Foundation, MetLife Foundation, and the ULI Foundation joined forces to continue the award. Last year, ULI reaffirmed its commitment to the award and announced it would expand the program to include global submissions. Juries of ULI Full Members, chaired by ULI Trustees, choose finalists and winner. Jury members represent many fields of real estate development expertise, including finance, land planning, development, public affairs, design, and other professional services. They also represent a broad geographic diversity. Finalists for the awards will be announced in the summer of 2016. The winner will be honored October 5-8, 2016 at the ULI Fall Meeting in Dallas. Online entry forms and complete information on eligibility and requirements are available at uli.org/awards. For more information, email awards@uli.org.

Text to 911 Now Available in Marion County

Sheriff John Layton is pleased to announce that Text to 911 is now available in Marion County. After nearly a year of system upgrades and testing, the Marion County Sheriff’s 911 Center, one of the busiest 911 centers in the country, is one of the very first 911 Centers of its size to implement Text to 911. The service is available to AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile and Verizon Wireless users. Sheriff John Layton commented, “The Marion County Sheriff’s Office is a nation-wide leader among 911 Centers, and this giant technological advancement is a great example of that leadership. I am grateful to the 911 Center telecommunicators and staff for their continued commitment to their evolving job responsibilities, and our partners in public safety, who have helped implement this advancement. Our top priority is the safety of Marion County residents, and this makes it easier for residents to contact 911 in their emergencies. I’m very proud of this accomplishment.” Marion County Sheriff’s Office Lieutenant Colonel Bart McAtee, Commander of the Communications Division, has a few tips for using Text to 911: · “Call if you can, text if you must”; citizens should use the texting option for 911 only when calling is not an option. · The first text message should always include clear location information and the nature of the emergency. · Text abbreviations and slang should never be used. · Citizens should only text 911 for emergency situations that require an immediate response for police, fire or medical assistance.

Butler University Parking Garage Adds New Tenant: Pita Pit

Butler University has signed its second retail customer for the Sunset Avenue Parking Garage—a 1,400-square-foot Pita Pit franchise owned by 2003 Butler graduate Travis Sealls. Pita Pit, “a fresh, healthy alternative to fast food,” will open in late February or early March. The restaurant will seat approximately 20 inside and will have an outdoor patio that will accommodate 20-30. Sealls said Pita Pit will deliver on campus and the surrounding neighborhood. It will be open for lunch and dinner, and offer beer and wine. “Butler holds a special place in my heart,” he said. “I met my future wife, Whitney ’03, at Butler, and now we have three wonderful kids. From a business standpoint, Pita Pit is a perfect college campus addition. The first Pita Pit was founded at a university. We will offer a quick and healthy alternative to the normal campus culinary scene.” Sealls, whose degree is in Finance, got into the restaurant business after working as a budget analyst at the University of Albany (New York) while Whitney went to medical school at Albany Medical College. She is now in scientific communications for Eli Lilly and Co. They moved back to Indianapolis in 2008. Sealls has owned and operated the downtown Indianapolis Pita Pit store since 2009 and was the franchisee of the year in 2013. He also owns another restaurant, Punch Burger, which opened in Indianapolis in 2012 and expanded to Carmel in 2015. Butler’s new facility, which opened for parking in August, has 17,000 square feet of retail space on the first floor of the five-story structure, as well as 1,033 parking spaces. In August, the University announced that Scotty’s Dawghouse would be the anchor tenant in the garage, taking 6,400 square feet in the northeast corner of Sunset Avenue and Lake Road. Scotty’s is scheduled to open in February.

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

Year in Review – A look back at 2015 in The Ripple

What column is complete without a year in review? Mine is no exception. Welcome BlueIndy?: BlueIndy electric vehicle short term rental cars started appearing around the Ripple taking 4-5 parking spots with them. Worst trend: The continued high profile vacancies in the Ripple: the former Scholars Inn at the corner of Broad Ripple Avenue and College remains vacant. Ditto for the old Broad Ripple Steak House at Guilford and Westfield. Best news: Construction has started on the new apartments and natural foods store on College. And the old Shell Station is finally gone. Also, several new businesses have opened on Broad Ripple Avenue. Best community group: Friends of Holliday Park which raised $3 million to renovate the nature center and “Ruins” exhibit plus have refurbished numerous trails. The renovated nature center exhibit hall is now open. The Ruins work will be done next spring. Best new garden: The new Bill Brink Garden along the Monon Trail. Native and other hardy plants complete with plant signs so you know what you are seeing. Worst roadway: Avoid Broad Ripple Avenue day and night in a car. Traffic crawls along. Runners and bikers cross near the McDonalds startling drivers especially at night. The road is a headache that begs for a solution. Yes, I am a cyclist. But ever since they took out traffic lanes to add bike lanes the traffic has been terrible.

Star Wars Returns I was driving home from downtown one night last week when I spotted an inflatable Yoda with a Santa cap on its head. My how times have changed since the first Star Wars movie debuted in May of 1977. I had just turned 13 and my brother was 10. He collected all of the Star Wars action figures. And the official display set, which was made of cardboard and featured a platform for each of the characters. He kept it set up in our basement where we would let them hang out with my Barbies, and take rides in the Barbie camper and be guests on the Barbie airplane. I’m not sure at what point my mom boxed it all up and sold it in a garage sale. Of course I was too young to DRINK wine then, but on special occasions my parents always let me and my brother have a sample of what they were drinking. Christian Brothers white wine was always my favorite. 1977 was a pretty good year for wine around the world and a vintage year for port. I did some vintage chart researching and found that if for some reason you still have a bottle of 1977 wine from the Tuscany region of Italy, or the Rioja region of Spain or a Napa Cabernet Sauvignon from that year, it might still taste pretty good. Best bet would be a 1977 port from Portugal. It was deemed a “Vintage” year which is quite unusual, and means the conditions were near perfect and wines produced that year would continue to be delicious for years to come. Warre’s and Graham’s were two of the most accoladed from that year. George Lucas, the famed creator of the Star Wars series, has owned a winery and vineyards in California since the 1990’s, not surprisingly called Skywalker Vineyards. I have not tasted any of its wines, but do know that Lucas’ friend and fellow film maker and winery owner, Francis Ford Coppola loaned him his winemaker to get things started, and I am a big fan of the Coppola wines, so I imagine the Skywalker wines are tasty too. www.skywalkervineyards.com

Clue: K equals B

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 left section of the top row which contains 3-4-5-8. The 7 in the middle section of the top row eliminates the spaces to the left of the 3. The 7 in the right section of the top row eliminates the spaces to the left and right of the 8. The only place left is between the 4-5. You have learned one technique needed to solve Sudoku puzzles. There are many more.

This holiday season I feel like getting a little corny with my article. Instead of writing about holiday eating tips, gift ideas, or what the holidays truly embody (which are all very good topics of course), I am going to challenge you all to a Christmas carol inspired WORKOUT! You are all familiar with the catchy tune “The Twelve Days of Christmas” I am sure. Well, let’s put a twist on that and turn it into a family fun holiday exercise routine… The premise of this workout works just as the song. The partridge is first (and always last as well) as you build upon your workout. Two turtle doves are next, three French hens and so on. Each “day” will be represented as an exercise move. For example, the partridge move (jumping jacks) is first, followed by the turtle doves (pushup) and then the jacks again. Then the French hen (wall sit) followed by the pushups and jacks. Continue this routine up until the twelfth day and you will get yourself a fantastic holiday inspired workout! If you are truly a glutton for punishment and want to burn off some extra egg nog, do it twice or better yet backwards with #12 switched to #1  Obviously, if you do not feel comfortable with correct form do not attempt. Perhaps pass it along to an experienced friend or family member or bring it to your trusty trainer/fitness instructor if you want to give it a try under supervision. All of these moves require NO equipment and can be done practically anywhere. Here goes! Partridge in a Pear Tree = 10 jumping jacks. Come on y’all know what to do! For lower impact simply raise arms the same but kick out one leg and alternate. CARDIO Two Turtle Doves = 2 Pushups. From knees or toes, keep abs engaged and do not sway back! CHEST Three French Hens = 30 second wall sit. Sit on a wall and make yourself look like a chair. Shoulder back and knees directly bent above ankles. QUADS Four Calling Birds = 20 mountain climbers. From a pushup position, jog or walk knees into chest, keeping breath steady. ABS/CARDIO Five GOLDEN RINGS! = 5 squats. Standing with feet shoulder width apart bend knees bringing butt back and chest forward. Make sure your knee isn’t moving much past your ankle (or just do a smaller squat). QUADS/GLUTES Six Geese a Laying = 6 chair dips. From a firm chair (such as from kitchen table) Wrap fingers around the front of the seat and scoot butt off of seat. Bend elbows to ninety degrees or less and press back up to start. TRICEPS Seven Swans a Swimming = 7 reverse lunges each leg. Standing tall, take your right leg back into a lunge. Make sure when you bend the front knee it doesn’t go much past your ankle. Step back up to standing. Repeat 7 reps on right leg and again with left leg. GLUTES/QUADS/CALVES Eight Maids Milking = 30 second plank (or less if need be). Face down on your elbows; elbows placed directly under shoulders, come off knees making sure back is not swayed and body is a straight line from back of shoulders to heels. ABS Nine Ladies Dancing = 9 step ups. Find a step and start with right foot first and step down with right foot first as well. Perform 9 reps, and then move onto the left foot leading. LEGS/CARDIO Ten Lords a Leaping = 20 heel raises. Either against a wall or using balance, raise heels off the ground. For an extra challenge when you lower heels, do not let them touch the ground. CALVES Eleven Pipers Piping = Flutter kicks. Lying on the ground face up with palms facing down, extend legs and lift heels off the floor (6 to 12 inches). Make quick and small pulses with legs while keeping the core engaged. 11 each leg, 22 reps total! CORE Twelve Drummers Drumming = 20 second side planks. On one side with elbow down directly under shoulder, stack feet or knees and lift off hips. Make sure you are a straight line from shoulder to ground. CORE I hope you give this workout a shot. I did it myself and it took about 25 minutes. I bet the kids would love it, and it would be a great way to squeeze in a workout during the holiday stress (not to mention the food, right?). If you do it, I would love your feedback. Email below… HAVE A GREAT HOLIDAY READERS! Can’t wait to bring more your way in 2016. Laura Minor owner and operator of So.Be.Fit.

19 Dec 18 - Jan 7, 2016

Right in my Own B a c k y a r d by Brandt Carter A Christmas Banquet Life goes on at the North Pole, but not this year. On Christmas Eve day, a snowy owl appeared on a snow-covered blue spruce. His urgent call brought all out into the yard where he warned the elves and Santa that a monster snow storm was headed toward the North Pole on Christmas Night. “HO, HO, HO,” answered Santa. “No problem, the reindeer and I will be well on our journey around the world to visit every good girl and boy. Mr. Owl, I do appreciate your weather forecast. My only concern is leaving the Mrs. and all those who live here at the Pole.” “Whoo, whoo,” the owl replied, “This Christmas will be memorably different.” The elves and Mrs. Claus hurried about to get Santa on his way. The elves jammed his sleigh and bag full of toys, dolls, and gifts. His wife packed protein bars for the reindeer and Santa’s once-a-year favorite, white chocolate chip cranberry walnut cookies, along with a thermos of hot chocolate latte. Off he went, quite visible for a long time because the sky was growing darker and darker as he flew away. The first flakes started… one, two, three, fifty, one hundred and fifty, and one thousand. Snowy Owl’s forecast was materializing. Wind picked up. Bunnies burrowed, the birds took shelter under the eaves of the house and in tree hollows. The deer, bears, raccoons, opossums, and squirrels raised their heads; their noses could smell the storm. They all disappeared to their shelters. As Christmas Day dawned Mrs. Claus looked out to see the wind curling around the house. Snow was piling up one inch a minute. She shut the door. Her elves were everywhere in the house. With Santa and his reindeer gone, the elves were too exhausted and worried to sleep. They had not gone to their dormitory. So Mrs. Claus passed around the last of the cookies and hot chocolate, and she got herself a cup of tea and settled by the fire. “My dear elves. You have worked so hard this year. You loaded Santa’s sleigh with the best and sent him on his way. Don’t worry. You know he is wise and has made this trip in fog, rain, and sleet. He will be fine. So let’s plan the day after Christmas while we wait for him to return. You know you are all safe and warm here, but the rest of our animal friends may wake up very cold and hungry. What do you think we can do to give them a Christmas?” The first elf said, “When the snow stops, we can go outside and find them. Then we can wish them a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.” The second elf said, “We can sing Christmas Carols to them.” Mrs. Claus said those were good ideas, “but what do you think they really need?” The third elf said, “I think they will be very hungry. Do you think we can feed them?” So all day was spent in preparations to give the birds and animals a Christmas banquet. Down to the root cellar to get carrots and apples. Out to the kitchen to make biscuits and popcorn. A few Jenny Nyström, early 20th century Swedish brave elves waded through the snow to illustrator. get birdseed and corn. After this flurry of work, Mrs. Claus saw quite a few yawns. “All right you elves…off to bed. Tomorrow will dawn soon enough and we will have many to feed until Santa comes back.” It’s a funny thing about nature…one day she can be downright nasty and the next day she is as beautiful, sunny and peaceful as can be. That was the day after Christmas this year. Mrs. Claus arose early and began giving directions. “Ready, elves, it’s time for us to be kind and generous. First group, go feed the birds. Second group, you take all the animals over 100 pounds. The last group, you feed the small critters.” The day was spent giving a holiday feast to all at the North Pole. When Santa arrived back, he noticed the happy chorus of chirping sounds and contented animals standing at the edge of the woods. Even though he was tired, with another “HO, HO, HO” he exclaimed, “What have you done? I can still feel the Christmas Spirit!” After Mrs. Claus recounted all that had been done, Santa declared, “Every year from now on, the day after Christmas, was reserved for all the creatures of the world. Let leftover breads, nuts, fruits, and grains be put out to feed those who live outdoors. Fill birdfeeders and provide water.” You, too, can offer a Christmas banquet in your backyard, a beautiful tradition that began that year at the North Pole.
