Broad Ripple Morning Writers Group By Mario Morone

mario@broadripplegazette.com David Rettig moderates the Broad Ripple Morning Writers Group that commences each Wednesday at 7 a.m. at the Cornerstone Café, located at 651 East 54th Street. He recently discussed his interest in writing and how the group formed. “Initially, it was started by James Fowles in early 2015, but he changed jobs and his new job wouldn’t allow him to continue meeting in the morning. I had attended for a few months, and he asked me to take over. I’ve been running the group for four months now. I’ve been focusing on trying to get more authors involved and get some additional people here,” Rettig explained. “I’ve always been writing business leadership articles, some of which are on the internet for people to read and really feel like understanding leadership helps me understand fiction and horror, which is what I’m writing now. I was born in Fort Lauderdale, but moved to Ohio, where I grew up and later moved to Indianapolis for a job. I have an undergraduate degree in Information Technology and an MBA from Franklin University in Columbus. I recently completed a second master’s degree in leadership,” he said. “The creative process (of writing) is interesting. It helps me expand how I think about communicating by going through the daily process in helping me tweak what I do in my day job in IT leadership. I lead a team of five people at a nonprofit affiliated with a local university,” Rettig added. A recent gathering revealed a diverse cadre of aspiring writers with varied experiences. Joel Klee said, “I heard about the group through a friend at a Toastmasters meeting. My interests are in writing memoirs and fiction. I also have an IT background. My undergraduate degree is in Earth and Planetary Science from Johns Hopkins University. I have a master’s degree in Geodetic Science and Surveying from Ohio

An early Indianapolis postcard showing the aqueduct for the Canal over Fall Creek. Note: the caption printed on the postcard is incorrect. It says “Aqueduct over Canal”.

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


Part Twelve For those readers just discovering this series on the canal now in its 12th 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 1836 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.

By this time in the interview at Citizens Energy Group we had covered all of the canal questions I had received over the years from readers, except for the last one that deals with the aqueduct. I would bet that many of our readers have no idea that there is an aqueduct that the canal travels over on its trip to the downtown processing plant. The one low elevation obstruction to the flow of the original 1836 canal was Fall Creek. If the canal was allowed to connect with the much lower Fall Creek at this intersection, all of the water would flow into Fall Creek and then back into the White River. An aqueduct (a bridge that carries a waterway) was constructed to allow the canal to continue downtown so it could service the businesses there. Remember from installment #1 in issue Volume 12 #18, historically, one use for the canal was to power water wheels at various downtown businesses. It was only later when that use was abandoned as electricity became cheaply available and the canal water was used as a drinking water supply for Indianapolis. According to Ed Malone, Director of Water Production for Citizens, the original

State University. I’m from Columbus, Ohio, but have lived in Indianapolis for 23 years. What is interesting to me about the writing process is that it hones your observational skills. To write is to observe.” “It tweaks the ear or sense of what is going on. It is through the taking of an idea and translating it into text. In writing code or prose, they are similar. Sometimes, code can be overwritten and hard to read. There are parallels between IT and the literature world. Nobody is our group has a master’s in fine arts, but anybody can write a story. It’s just sitting there and putting pen to paper and turning it into something worth reading,” he added. Rettig’s daughter, Rebecca mentioned, “I’m currently writing a fantasy story and ended up attending this group to get support for my writing.” Jason Eder explained, “I started writing when I was in college when I took some classes, then got out of it. In the past couple of years, I started again. I was a liberal arts major at IUPUI (history and sociology) and currently work in purchasing for a laboratory.” Christine Orlowski said, “I have two projects I’m working on right now. One is a spiritual/religious memoir, and one is a collection of short reflections or essays on daily life. I’ll periodically select from those and post them on my blog (www. mostofmyfriendsarebooks.wordpress.com).” I heard about the group through the website, www.meetup.com. I’m originally from Denver and currently finishing a degree in mental health counseling from Christian Theological Seminary. J.C. Fralick mentioned, “I have a background in insurance underwriting, but currently co-own a tea blending business (www.facebook.com/ADHTeas). Some of our teas are from China, Sri Lanka and South Africa that are locally available. I have an English degree with a concentration in film from IUPUI and am originally from northwestern Arkansas. Now I’m writing short stories and currently working on a horror novel.” “One of the things about writing is that review each other’s pieces. We bring different perspectives to the group. We’ve able to feed into each other’s stories and become better writers. It’s hard to get that kind of honest feedback. Anyone writing who is not attending a group is missing out. We’re not working on a project together since our writing styles are so different. We are here more to polish each other’s individual voice and hone that,” Rettig emphasized. His novel, “Project Dandelion” will be out this spring. He also has an apocalyptic book on the website, www.channillo.com, called “Dark Places” (http://channillo.com/series/darkplaces/). You can meet the Broad Ripple Morning Writers Group on Wednesdays at 7 a.m. at the Cornerstone Café for the next chapter of your literary endeavors.

IPS Music Teacher Wins $10K in Donors Choose Competition

When you integrate Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) studies with the arts, you get STEAM; one Indianapolis Public Schools music teacher is going full STEAM ahead on an exciting and educational project, thanks to a $10,000 grant from Donors Choose! Laura Bartolomeo, music teacher at Center for Inquiry School 84, came up with an engaging project for her fourth grade classes. She started a Donors Choose entry to raise funds for kits allowing students to make their own dulcimers. The integration of lessons including math (ratios), science (sound frequency), engineering (dulcimer assembly) and music (dulcimer performance) made this project a perfect fit for the Experience Music Project (EMP) Museum’s “Igniting STEAM for Student Innovators” challenge. Bartolomeo received $10,000 in credits on Donors Choose, and her idea may be featured at the EMP Museum in Seattle! Since the dulcimer project is already fully funded thanks to the Paul G. Allen Family Foundation and other donors, she and her students are making plans for the best use of those Donors

Butler Joins With Lincoln Park Zoo in Urban Wildlife Study

Butler University’s Center for Urban Ecology will place 48 motion-sensitive cameras at locations in Indianapolis, Westfield, Zionsville, and Carmel for four weeks every quarter beginning in April to study urban wildlife. The Indy Wildlife Watch project is being done in conjunction with the Lincoln Park Zoo Urban Wildlife Institute in Chicago and the University of Wisconsin-Madison to see how central Indiana wildlife compares with theirs. Researchers also will be looking to see how the habitat compares in different neighborhoods. For the past five years, the Urban Wildlife Institute has been undertaking a groundbreaking study of Chicago’s urban ecosystem, using camera traps and acoustic monitors to track the behavior of bats, birds, coyotes and even humans. The pictures can be seen at http://www.chicagowildlifewatch.org/. “The Urban Wildlife Information Network and these new camera-trap sites will provide a wealth of knowledge about not only wildlife but the ecosystem as a whole,” Lincoln Park Zoo Urban Wildlife Institute Director Seth Magle said. “We’re grateful to the University of Wisconsin and Butler University for this vital support, which will help everyone better understand wildlife and, subsequently, mitigate conflict between humans and animals.” The cameras are held in metal boxes to shield them from the elements and camouflaged so they’re not an eyesore on the landscape. They are strapped around the trunk of a tree and secure with a cable and a lock. The cameras are pointed at another tree 10-20 feet away where a scented lure is attached. When animals stop to investigate the lure, they trip the motion sensor in the camera. The cameras are capable of taking a picture every 30 seconds. The pictures are stored on memory cards that will be collected and replaced every two weeks. In January, Butler’s Center for Urban Ecology tested about 18 cameras. Biology Professor Travis Ryan said the best pictures so far have come from the area around the Monon Center in Carmel, where deer, foxes, coyotes, squirrels, and rabbits triggered the camera. A sampling of those pictures is now available on Twitter (@indywildwatch) and Facebook (Indy Wildlife Watch). Beginning in 2017, all the pictures from central Indiana sites will be posted on a website for the public to view and help identify the contents of the photos. Butler students will be actively involved in managing the images and the cameras, and some area elementary and high schools also may participate, Ryan said. Butler students will be introduced to the project as part of an Introduction to Ecology and Evolutionary Biology class.

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

Flood Wall proponents fire back The fierce debate over the flood wall continues after a local neighborhood group spoke out against the plan. As noted in a letter to the editor last edition, the Rocky Ripple Town Board feels that the project could doom Rocky Ripple. Now the pro-flood wall group has fired back in a recent email from Jim Polito: “The Indianapolis North Flood Damage Reduction Project seeks to protect approximately 2,500 homes and 5,000 individuals from the devastating consequences of severe flood events which increasingly are becoming more common. We applaud and support the City’s decision to move forward this long, languishing 20-year public safety project, and its attempt to provide basic flood protection to those citizens and constituents federal funding now allows. We do understand the Westfield Boulevard Alignment does not reduce the potential for flood damage to Rocky Ripple. However, we also understand terminating project progress similarly fails to reduce the potential for flood damage to Rocky Ripple. Alternatively, terminating project progress at this time imposes considerable cost upon approximately 2,500 households and 5,000 flood plain residents, and impairs the economic health of midtown Indianapolis. Accordingly, the suggestion to halt project progress imposes extreme hardship and cost upon many and, at the same time, provides benefit to no one. A more reasonable strategy would be to support project progress now while continuing to search for a viable Rocky Ripple solution.”

UPCOMING IN THE RIPPLE: March 12-20 – Indiana Flower and Patio Show, Fairgrounds March 18 – Moonlight madness egg hunt at Broad Ripple Park, 7pm March 19 – Eggscellent egg hunt at Broad Ripple Park, 1030am April 8 – Opening reception at the Indianapolis Art Center: Expats (artists from Indiana who have since left the state) May 21/22 – Indianapolis Art Center Art Fair (Volunteer slots available) Bill Malcolm is a 15 year Village resident who works for a national association.

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

Toad Talk & Taste A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of interviewing Francine “Frankie” Williams, the owner of Toad Hollow Vineyards in Healdsburg, California. Our conversation was not only about wine, but also about life and business. Much too much for just one column. So this week, a bit about the fabulous Toad Hollow label. “My late husband Todd was nicknamed “Toad” from a little boy so everyone knew him as “toad”,” says Williams. She and husband Todd owned an iconic restaurant/bar in San Francisco, called Toad Manor as well as the legendary “Whiskey River Inn” in the Sierra Foothills. When they made the move from the city to wine country in the mid 80’s, it seemed natural to bring the name as well. “When we needed a label for our wines, my husband described what he wanted to this young woman who was doing designs for children’s books.” They sat at the bar of their restaurant, and on a napkin, the woman drew the character that her husband Todd described. “He saw it and said, yes, that is what I want!”. The cartoonish Toad has evolved since its inception in 1994. And survived the “critter creep”. “We got lumped in with that a bit as people didn’t realize, ok this is a toad, but it is based on a PERSON”, says Williams. See the “refining” of the toad at www.toadhollow.com 2012 Erik’s The Red Proprietary Red Wine lush, smooth, fun red blend. Enticing aromas and flavors of black berry, plum and black cherry make this easy drinking yet full bodied wine hard to put down. Screw cap also has fun frog on the top. Pair with burgers, pizza, and friends. This could be the good time bottle of Spring.

from pg. 1

aqueduct failed in 1904 and the current one was built in 1905. The aqueduct is just north of Pic-A-Part salvage yard, at about 22nd and Milburn Street. It is near the canal entrance to the Citizens Energy White River Water Treatment Plant. One reader called The Gazette to say that while ice skating down the canal one winter, he skated across the aqueduct (Note: this is a very dangerous thing to do. The canal is always moving great volumes of water toward the treatment facility, even when the surface is frozen. The thin frozen surface can break and then danger ensues). He saw lots of water flowing out of the canal, spilling into Fall Creek below. He wondered why this was happening. Here is that part of the interview: “The only other question…,” I followed up. “was from a guy that called the other day. It was about Fall Creek. He said there is a diversion thing where part of the canal looks like it goes off into Fall Creek. And he said “Why is that?” ”

Looking upstream on the aqueduct, this is just before the canal water enters the treatment plant. Fall Creek can be seen running underneath on the left.

Clue: S equals H 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 6 in the middle section of the top row which contains 2-3-4-9. The 6 in the left section of the top row eliminates the space between the 2-3. The 6 in the right section of the top row eliminates the spaces to the right of the 9. The 6 in the middle section of the bottom row eliminates the spaces above the 2. The only place left is just to the left of the 4. You have learned one technique needed to solve Sudoku puzzles. There are many more.

Gettin’ Ripped in Ripple by Laura Minor

Rev That Engine! As I have mentioned in a past couple of issues I am turning the infamous 4-0 this year. Am I sad about it? Actually, no. I don’t really “feel” that much different than in the last 10 years all in all, thanks to regular physical activity and a generally healthy diet (don’t get me wrong, it’s far from perfect!). But, that being said, what I do notice the most since my mid-thirties is the unfortunate slightly slower metabolism. I remember when I was 25 and getting away with bloody murder as far as my diet, I would hear the incessant comment from often 50+ women “You just wait till you’re older” often followed with a slight grin or laugh. I remember either I would resent the comment or not believe them thinking that it wouldn’t happen. Well, I must say that indeed they were “right”, but not entirely. It is purely a FACT that metabolism starts to slow down after about 25, which is the age where we stop growing bone, by about 2% or more per decade. So, this is something we cannot do anything about. You know the famous quote “God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference”? Exactly. What I mean is that yes everyone’s metabolism will decline with age and that we must accept. However, this is not a situation to throw up your hands and “you just wait” if one chooses to take some actions to deter and actually reverse some of the decline. Here are some tools to give a boost to your body’s engine: 1. Strength Training: Just a couple of days per week can reverse 50% of age related metabolism slow down. This is primarily due to the increased muscle mass that comes along with doing so which leads to one burning more calories even at rest. 2. Add intervals to cardio: When doing your normal routine, for example, add in 30-second intervals every couple of minutes to get a significantly higher calorie burn in the same amount of time. 3. Get in your Omegas: Fish rich in Omega-3 fatty acids balance blood sugar and reduce inflammation helping to regulate metabolism. 4. Don’t crash diet: It may sound counter-intuitive, but cutting back on calories too much will cause your body to cut back on fat burning to conserve energy. You must eat at least as much as your resting metabolic rate and more if you are active. Also, eating too few calories can lead to muscle wasting which will lower your daily calorie burn. Plus, who wants to crash diet anyways?! 5. Eat breakfast: Having a healthy morning meal literally wakes up the metabolism and keeps it going all day. 6. Healthfully graze: Nibbling versus gorging has been proven to curb hunger and eating fewer calories. It also helps to control blood sugar. 7. Spice it up: Spicy foods have natural chemicals that can kick your metabolism into a higher gear. 8. Up the protein: Your body burns a lot more calories by digesting protein than fats or carbohydrates. Replace some carbs with lean protein such as turkey, chicken, eggs and low-fat dairy. 9. Sip on joe: Coffee can cause a short term rise in metabolism and if drank slightly before exercise can also increase endurance. 10. Green tea: Similar to coffee, green tea has been linked to increased calorie burn due to substances called catechins. Don’t think of growing old as a death sentence on your body. Use these tips to beat or slow back the hands of time and rev that engine!! Laura Minor owner and operator of So.Be.Fit. Personal Training and Fitness studio located at 54th and the Monon.

Vol. 13 No. 6

Right in my Own B a c k y a r d by Brandt Carter Build or Buy Spring begins the season of renewal. Even in our backyards we can see bugs appearing, birds nesting, and varmints stirring. Watching a family of wrens, chickadees, cardinals, or other feathered visitors nest in our yards is an amazing experience. Have you even witnessed a bird’s mating dance, flight, feeding habit, or listened to its song? Have you ever seen a flaming red, male cardinal caringly feed his mate a carefully chosen black oil sunflower seed? Have you ever watched a male wren go about your yard building four to six nests, then see his mate choose the one she wants? To your dismay, she may also tear his nest up and build one in the same spot to suit her liking! If you want to see wild kingdom in your yard this year, you may want to put up a nest box to attract the birds. Whether you decide to build or buy, here is some advice: • Be sure you know what kinds of birds you want to attract. Each bird desires a specific size entry hole (door) to their family home. For example, a wren likes a 1 to 1 1/2” opening while a house sparrow is less choosy and will prefer 1 3/16” to 2” hole. You will note that sparrows often peck out smaller holes to fit their needs. • The best bird houses have several features besides the basic requirement of being sturdy: • Built of untreated wood like pine or cedar • Designed with extended, sloped roof for water to run off • Include Ventilation and drainage holes • A back door or removable bottom so it can be cleaned out after a nesting • Constructed with no perches

• Locate the birdhouses in a safe location on either a pole or sturdy branch. General advice is place a house away from your feeders, out of strong wind currents, and preferably facing south or southeast. • Put them out in March. But if you don’t make it by then, you can put them out all spring because many birds have more than one brood. • Provide nesting material close by (in a crevice of a tree or made into a wreath). This can be your hair from a cut or brush, dog hair, strips of yarn (8”), grass, or bundles of twigs. Just one more bit of information: Not all birds in our yards use nest boxes. Robins, Carolina Wrens and Phoebes prefer a nesting shelf. Mourning doves, cardinals, blue jays, gold finches, hummingbirds, to name a few, build their nests in trees or shrubs. For a great reference about nest boxes, go to www.nestwatch.org (Cornell Lab of Ornithology). They have an interactive field you can search for a list of birds in your area with a link to patterns to make a birdhouse. You can also become a citizen scientist and record valuable data about the successes and failures of nesting birds in your yard. Whether you buy or build a bird house, spring is a great time to add them to your backyard. It would be great if the Broad Ripple and surrounding areas could become the desired habitat for nesting songbirds. It is fun to watch them choose a house, feed their chicks, and watch them fledge. There may be birds that would love to call your yard home. Birdhouses can be placed in backyards, schoolyards, parks, orchards, farms, pastures, cemeteries, and woodlots. This spring become a nest box landlord; find out what features make a birdhouse ideal, which species you can attract to your area, and how to troubleshoot any problems that arise. Visit Broad Ripple’s own Backyard Birds. Brandt Carter, artist, herbalist, and naturalist, owns Backyard Birds at 2374 E. 54th Street. Visit her web site www.feedbackyardbirds.com.
