Garden Volume 12 Number 14 Similar to the Art Walks, the first Garden Walk became a new event in the Village in July.

Milestone Volume 12 Number 24 Broad Ripple Brewpub turns 25.

For those readers just discovering this series on the canal now in its 8th 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.

I changed the subject to problems with the canal. “The canal is really river water. But, I hear people say they are worried about a break in the levee allowing the river to spill into the canal, ruining our main supply of water for the city. There’s a place where the river and the canal are really close, like at 50th...” “Highbanks area,” answered Ed Malone, Director of Water Production for Citizens. “Michigan Road area. North of Michigan Road, that’s where it is. It’s basically as you go north from Michigan Road up behind Butler and the Christian Theological Seminary.” “There’s like one shared, narrow bank between the canal and the river,” I followed. Ed continued, “That’s what we call our highbanks area.” “But if it breaks, it’s a problem I’m sure, but isn’t that the same water on both sides of the levee (The Canal and The White River)?”, I asked. “The problem is the river,” explained Ed. “If you stood [on that bank] you’ve seen... the river is substantially below the canal there.” “Ahh, so you’d lose the water in the canal to the river.” Ed further explained, “Yes, [river water] won’t flow into the canal [polluting it], it will flow out of the canal [into the river, emptying it].” “And that happened once, right?” I recalled. “Where a tree in the narrow bank fell over and ripped a hole in the levee. When I was a kid, my mom always told me to be careful around the canal because it was deep and fast moving. She said I would be swept away. Then when it went dry about 20 years ago...” Ed jumped in, “ June, Father’s Day 1992, it went dry.” “And when we went down there and it was like--this is how deep it is? It’s not deep at all.” “No, it’s only five feet deep,” said Edwin Morris, Operations and Maintenance Supervisor for Citizens. “A few years ago,” I recalled, “there were firemen, I think, and other people getting bikes and things out of the canal. Is that when [Citizens] says there’s too much junk in the canal and we need to clean stuff out, or was that done by someone else?” Ed answered, “That’s what Edwin’s guys do on a regular basis.” “The patrol,” Edwin added. “I think it was the fire department that went in and got the stuff, in wet suits...” “A lot of times my guys go in and remove whatever’s in there. They pull out some branches and small trees all the time,” said Edwin.

Divers pulling items from the canal in 2009.

“This photo is from 2009,” as I showed the picture. “Fire divers in the canal at Rainbow Bridge. They brought out bikes and cash drawers and...” “That was probably for the canal beautification,” said Ed. Edwin added, “The dredging project can also pull a lot of materials and debris out, anything that shouldn’t be in the water.” “Did you find any ducks, rubber ducks? Did any make it past the fire department?”, I followed up. “The rubber ducks at the duck race?” asked Edwin. “I don’t know how it turned out. Do you know who won?” “Yeah,” I replied, “but I was curious if they got every one of them. The firemen had a net at the end to catch the strays. Did any of the 1300 rubber ducks end up here [at the water company]?” “They got them all out,” said Edwin. I asked, “Can the fire department can just go in [to the canal] and take stuff?” “They usually tell us,” replied Ed. “They notify us.” “They do training in there, too,” I added. Ed answered, “Yes, they do some training in there. They Divers training in the canal. do underwater training. They’ll look for guns occasionally after an incident or what not. So if somebody tosses one in there they may look for it.”

Poetic Thoughts


by C.W. Pruitt II

Town with Nora Spitznogle

2 on Togetherness Below are 2 poems I wrote on December 11, 2015. They are on togetherness

Happy New Gazette Year! I hope that you celebrated in style and are excited for 2016, I sure am. What are you looking forward to this year? I’m excited about another year of wonderful music and community. I’ll see you out and about!

this tribe it is not where you are from or what color your skin is

Broad Ripple Winter Farmers Market Saturdays, through April 30 Bent Rail Brewery 5301 Winthrop Ave all-ages, 9:00 – noon, free

to belong to this tribe all that matters is what is in your heart

Did you know that there is now a Broad Ripple Winter Farmers Market? And it’s indoors! The Winter Market started in December and has been wonderful. It is tucked in to the Bent Rail Brewery and features vegetables, honey, oils, cheeses, meats, eggs, baked goods, live music, and more. And you can enjoy a delicious breakfast and a Bloody Mary while you’re there. Check out the website (listed below) for a weekly list of vendors. There is plenty of parking in the lot next to the brewery (try to leave the spaces on the street for the residents). And heads up – no non-service doggies allowed, it is a restaurant space.

believing in Us


I believe that Peter Tosh is right. Without the foundation of our Love, there is no strength and no hope. We must never stop believing is Us.

Charlie Ballantine and the Providence Band Jazz Kitchen Monday, January 11 5377 N College Ave. 21+, 7:00 – 10:00 PM, free

Jazz guitarist Charlie Ballantine just finished recording his sophomore album, Providence, and he’s looking forward to sharing the music with you. The band is: Amanda Gardier (alto sax), Charlie Ballantine (guitar), Josh Espinoza (keys), Conner Green (bass), and John Roberts (drums). Charlie promises that good musical things will happen – and I believe him!

Broad Ripple Village Night at Indy Fuel Hockey Friday, January 22 Indiana Farmers Coliseum Indiana State Fairgrounds 1202 E. 38th Street all-ages, 7:35 PM, tickets range from $11 - $31

I haven’t been to an Indy Fuel Hockey game yet – this seems like the perfect opportunity. Not only is it Broad Ripple Village Night, you get to throw rubbers ducks on to the ice. Although as I understand it, you should wait until after the game to start chucking the ducks. Friday, January 22 will be official Broad Ripple Village Night at the Indy Fuel Hockey Game. BRVA members and Village supporters may purchase discount tickets at this link: https://tickets.indyfuelhockey.com/order/seats/360/ or visit the Broad Ripple Village Association’s Facebook page or pop into the BRVA office (6323 Guilford Ave.) and ask Brooke to point you in the right directions. The Fuel will be playing the Quad City Mallards, so it is the perfect time to play Chuck-a-Duck. You can purchase official Broad Ripple rubber ducks at the game and then throw them at targets on the ice (again, after the game!) to win prizes from Broad Ripple Merchants. I can’t wait!

IPS Oral History Featured in IndyPL Digital Collection

Memories from past and present students and families with experiences at Indianapolis Public Schools, township and charter schools comprise The Indianapolis Public Library’s latest digital collection found online at www.indypl.org. The collection, “Families Talk: Indianapolis Public School Oral Histories,” includes audio recordings and transcripts of interviews with those whose experiences at IPS and other schools date as far as the 1920’s. Narrators range in age from 15 to 94 and represent diverse ethnicities, communities and careers. Janitors, scientists, cooks, and teachers are among those whose stories illustrate how experiences varied among people, their schools and times during which they attended, resulting in a vivid record of eight decades of Indianapolis urban life that saw such issues as segregation, busing and school choice play out. The stories also provide fascinating, first-person accounts of trends in K-12 education and show the impact of individual differences, prejudices, population shifts, social upheaval and other variables on local schools. Local journalist Josefa Beyer created and was the chief interviewer for “Families Talk.” Work continues on finalizing transcripts from many of the interviews to be added to the digital collection in 2016. Several transcripts will be included in Beyer’s book, Schooled in Indianapolis, to be published in 2016. Complementing the new IPS oral history collection is an existing IndyPL digital collection of historical yearbooks from all ten IPS high schools, as well as from Ben Davis, North Central and Warren Central high schools. The Indianapolis Public Library and digitization partner IUPUI University Library present these digital collections of materials found in the Nina Mason Pulliam Indianapolis Special Collections Room at Central Library, along with other community collections published with funding provided by The Indianapolis Foundation Library Fund. Collections can be accessed from the Digital Collections link on the Library’s homepage or directly at digitallibrary.imcpl.org.

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

Reader cautions on train to Chicago given bus-rail station issues If you have read my column, you know I have been a promoter of the passenger rail service to Chicago. However, a reader complained that the ride was fine but the Indianapolis Bus Rail Station (aka Union Station) is a mess, including the restrooms. While the city operates both our airport and bus-rail station, they have outsourced the bus-rail station to Greyhound and indeed the two facilities couldn’t be more different. Please let our new mayor and civic and tourism leaders know that Indy needs to put a welcoming face on our bus-rail station, 330 S. Illinois. It couldn’t be more convenient (steps to downtown and Lucas Oil Stadium as well as the convention center) but it needs some TLC. Denver – which operates its rail station – just remade it into a transit hub that also included restaurant and shops. We can do this.

The Wine Scene

I’ve been perusing a number of wine industry publications as of late, checking on popular wines and trends of the year gone by and what we might find more of in our glasses in 2016. Here are some of the topics that caught my eye. The Shanken Report notes that there are 93 million regular wine drinkers in the U.S., making up 40 percent of adults; by 2025 there will be 104 million, making up 44 million. Maybe that’s why they are building all of those new apartments in Broad Ripple. Prosecco, rose and hard cider found their way into many a glass last year and industry experts predict more of the same for 2016. Local hard cider fans should try the offerings from New Day Craft, located in Fountain Square. Brett and Tia have been making tasty award winning wine from honey and hard cider from apples for ten years. www. newdaycraft.com On Christmas Eve, I shared bottle of JEIO Prosecco from Italy with friends. It was delightful. Crisp notes of golden delicious apple, a touch of almond and d’anjou pear tempted the nose and a clean dry finish made it a perfect aperitif. Speaking of sparklers, look for more of those bubbly bottles from England. Yes, England. The climate of the Champagne region of nearby France is warming, which isn’t ideal for producing Champagne grapes. So French vintners are taking their shows on the road to the still very cold soils of Great Britain. Champagne House Taittinger purchased vineyards in Kent where it plans to produce a sparkling wine under the label of Domaine Evremond. Industry experts predict more and better deals on Italian and Spanish wines in the year ahead. And health experts reported on a new study of red wine and people with Type 2 diabetes. A small two year study from the Ben Gurion University of Negev found that patients with type 2 diabetes who drank 5 ounces of red wine with dinner had a slight increase in their HDL or “good” cholesterol level. They say they need to do more testing. Any one want to road trip to Israel?

www.VirtualBroadRipple.com Nicholas Rivelli Achieves Rank of Eagle Scout

Please tell our advertisers that you saw them in

The Gazette It is because of them that The Gazette exists.

Nicholas Rivelli, 18, has received Scouting’s highest rank of Eagle Scout. Rivelli, a member of Troop 35, chartered by the St. John of Arc, is a senior at Bishop Chatard High School and has been involved in Scouting for six years. Rivelli achieved the Eagle rank after demonstrating leadership as senior patrol leader, patrol leader and den chief before completing his Eagle project. Only 4 percent of Scouting’s national membership attains the rank of Eagle. For his Eagle Scout Service Project, Rivelli built an outdoor garden on the south side of the St. John of Arc church for those seeking solitude, engaging in prayer or embracing nature. There were about three volunteers who dedicated their service to assist Rivelli in completing his one-day service project on October 25, 2015. Boy Scouts of America is a youth development organization that’s designed to prepare young people to make ethical and moral decisions throughout their lifetimes. The goals of Scouting consist of citizenship training, character development and personal fitness. Throughout the Boy Scout program, young people are encouraged to advance through ranks by fulfilling requirements in the areas of leadership, service and outdoor skills.

On Saturday, December 21st at the University of Indianapolis, a pair of BR Rocket sisters both swam their way to city championships in two events each. Jessica Halsmer (left), a junior, won the 200 yard IM and then broke her own record in the 100 yard back to set a new city record of 1:00:62. Her sister, Sandy (right), a freshman won both the 50 and 100 yard Freestyle events and narrowly missed the existing record in the 50. The sisters also swam on two relays with Audree Nealy and Brooke Blakemore which came in sixth in the city. Ty Brown, a BR resident, placed seventh in the 100 y. Free and made the podium with a fifth place finish in his 100 y. Breaststroke swim. Congratulations Rockets!

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 5 in the right section of the middle row which contains 4-6-8. The 5 in the right section of the top row eliminates the spaces above and below the 6. The 5 in the left section of the middle row eliminates the spaces to the left of the 6. The 5 in the center section eliminates the spaces to the right of the 4. The only place left is next to the 8. You have learned one technique needed to solve Sudoku puzzles. There are many more.

Well folks…it’s that year. In 2016, I and my classmates either have or will turn 40 the infamous. Even typing that feels surreal to me as I always thought it felt so far away. Every day, I see another one of my peers post a 40th bday “selfie” or celebratory photo. Being an August birthday, I am young for my class, so I will be on the tail end of this, relatively speaking. I find 39 to be kind of a funny age. To many you are simply a kid, and to others, such as my spry 20-something clients and trainers, I am an old lady (they tease). When I was younger, I must admit, I held that same sentiment towards those poor souls barreling toward their fifth decade on this planet. And, in some ways, I was justified…and in others, I was not. Turning 40 isn’t a fitness death sentence. There are plenty of things you can do to turn back, or greatly slow down, the hands of time. Sure, there are age-related changes to our bodies associated with becoming “over the hill”. After our 30s, the skin and connective tissue start to lose elasticity which can result in the sagging appearance. Combined with that and the fact that older women are likely much less active than younger women, the former usually have more body fat as well. This isn’t only due to less activity, hormonal changes don’t help. An older woman also has less estrogen than a younger woman, which means less ability to create testosterone which is crucial to muscle building. This results in having to work harder to maintain the same muscle mass. GRRRRREAT  So, yes, there is nothing we can do about the fact that nature causes us to face the inevitable, but there are several ways to combat and slow down the rate of a decline in fitness after 40, if you put in work, make time, and stay dedicated. In fact, my husband just took up running and strength training in the past couple of years and claims he is in the best shape of his life; and I agree! Here are some tips to keep you looking, and more importantly, feeling young: • Combine cardio and strength training and when it feels easier, increase the intensity. Many women shy away from strength training. However, it is an integral component in building and maintaining muscle mass in later years. The can halt or slow the process of sarcopenia which is age related loss of muscle mass and strength. • Try to workout first thing to minimize distraction. Such as, before opening your email or waking up the kids. Make use of every minute you have to yourself. Even 15 minutes, with a good intensity, can result in a great muscle saving sweat session. • Find a group class or a few friends that have like-minded goals and consider that an appointment that is very hard to cancel for yourself. • Focus more on what toned muscles will bring you other than just the physical benefits. Almost nothing feels better than being strong, functional and capable to do all daily activities without help. For example, after a hard hill run, I love the confidence that comes along with knowing my body was able to carry itself up those inclines. Priceless! • Whenever possible, do not take the easy way out! Unless you are about to miss a flight, do not take the moving sidewalk, do not take escalators or the closest parking spot. Walk to dinner, etc. • It is important to remember that 40+ year-old joints are not 20-year-old joints and will take a lot longer to heal if injured, so easing into a fitness regimen is key. I recommend having a professional set up a program for you if unsure of what to do. I have loved my 30s. They have been my favorite decade yet. I hate to see them go but I am also excited to see what my 40s will bring. It’s not about getting over the hill but HOW you got over it! Laura Minor owner and operator of So.Be.Fit.

Right in my Own B a c k y a r d by Brandt Carter Hail to the Brown Paper Bag Simple things in life can bring great pleasures. Take the lowly brown paper bag as a perfect example. It has been my “beast of burden,” carrying all kinds of purchases. It’s been a waste basket, suitcase, briefcase, storage bin, and organizer. It is the inspiration for many crafts. Oh, such a versatile object! Thinking back to my early years. I remember making a placemat by cutting a brown grocery bag into two flat pieces, punching holes along the edges, and sewing the sides with yarn. I added flowers with colorful crayons and carefully scribed, “Dear Mom, I Love You.” If you are resourceful and use a bit of imagination, you can make many projects out of brown paper bags. No matter what size, a bag can be decorated as a gift bag or trimmed on all sides to make wrapping paper with an eco-friendly look. Add some stamping or twine ribbon to give a gift stylish appeal. If you are frugal, you can cut up bags to make notepaper. Fold cut paper bags to make book covers. Kraft paper is great for table runners, placemats, or table covers. Using pinking shears, cut out triangles, fold the wide end over a dowel rod or cord and staple — pesto, pennants to decorate a room. “Happy Birthday” or other special occasion greetings can be lettered on sheets cut from bags to make inexpensive but eye-catching banners. When I taught school I used free and recycled bags for projects: puppetry, masks, hats, and wigs. Animal characters were my favorite puppets, achieved with lots of colored paper, yarn, glue, buttons, and gems to create cats, dogs, or tigers. The twoand three-dimensional effects were as intricate as the artists could muster. Masks were easy to sculpt from bags; the additions of fabric and ribbons made them more festive. From simple crowns to elaborate, folded creations, hats can challenge the inspired crafter. If you want to see this art form taken to the next level, check out the Hawaiian artist Moses who created more than 250 hats in a remarkable span that lasted almost 10 years. These exquisite paper sculptures are in the permanent collection of the Mingei International Museum, in San Diego, CA. Possibilities with the brown paper bag are limitless. I will end with yet one more. I wallpapered a small bathroom with rolls of kraft paper. Then I trimmed 8 1/2x11 sheets from dozens of bags to make computer paper on which I printed quotes about dogs. Using decoupage glue, I affixed them to the kraft wallpaper. Then came hand-drawn paw prints, and one final coat of the glue. The decor has held up well for more than 20 years. You, too, can create a wall or entire room with themes of your choosing, so save those paper bags for winter projects. Here’s to creativity!
