Dan Wakefield Park ribbon cutting By Alan Hague

alan@broadripplegazette.com On June 1 the neighborhood park at 61st and Broadway Street was filled with dignitaries, all there to honor a writer from Broad Ripple, Dan Wakefield. Last year, Pat Chastain made an unprecedented request to the Indy Parks board to rename a city park in honor of a living person. He proposed that Broadway & 61st Park (always misrepresented by a sign that reads “61st & Broadway Park”) be renamed in honor of Indiana author Dan Wakefield, best known for his book Going All The Way. Dan grew up near the park and attended IPS School 80. After much deliberation the board voted to change the name. The speakers at the June 1 ceremony included past U.S. Senator and Indianapolis Mayor Richard Lugar, present Mayor Joe Hogsett, director of Indy Parks Linda Broadfoot, Indy Reads director Travis DiNicola, Indy Star columnist Will Higgins, author and director of Indiana Writers’ Center Barb Shoup, and Groundwork Indy director Phyllis Boyd. All had kind words and memories to share about Dan, including several references to spending time at the Red Key Tavern with him. Dan, overwhelmed by the accolades from the distinguished speakers, ended with “After this day, I have no need for a memorial service. Everybody can just go to the Red Key, play the juke box, and have a drink.” Students from IPS CFI 84 performed several songs, and Caroline Smith sang “I’ll Be Seeing You” to end the ceremony. CFI 84 students John and Adele Chastain helped Dan cut the ribbon to open the newly named park. Pictures of the entire event are at www.broadripplegazette.com The annual BRHS multi-class reunion was held on June 4th at the Riviera Club. This year there were attendees from 1940 through 2016. The Broad Ripple High School Alumni Association organizes the event. For more information on the association: www.brhsalumni.org

Junkyard Goddess Opens Eco-Boutique In Broad Ripple

Junkyard Goddess is the newest addition to the Monon Station in the hot SoBro area at 54th and the Monon Trail. Junkyard Goddess was envisioned and developed by local artisan, Michelle Dolon. After launching the 100% earth-derived and non-toxic Junkyard Goddess Milk Paint line last year, Dolon sought a brick-and-mortar store to feature her work and works of other artisans, as well as unique items currently hard to find in the area. All store displays (from pallets to electrical spools) were upcycled and upstyled by Dolon herself, who believes in reusing and reinventing whenever possible. You may have seen Dolon on Indy Style, or her work on Carrie Underwood’s Storyteller Tour. Junkyard Goddess is currently showcasing “The Humanity Machine,” original metalwork sculptures by Edward Casagrande and Mark Macomber, pillows, prints & dolon. Junkyard Goddess found its niche by stocking an array of unique items focused on art, beauty & wellness. It’s also a community space to gather for ongoing events and workshops, complimentary infused water or coffee. We encourage you to bring the kids along (human & canine) - inside we have a play area for kids and outside we have a sitting area and a bowl of water for thirsty pooches. Come visit us and visit often–Inventory will be constantly changing, creating ongoing opportunities for local artisans to be involved. With a variety of items and prices, there is something for everyone. Open Tuesdays – Saturday 11am – 6pm & Sunday Noon – 4pm. 1051 E 54th Street.

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

Bus routes simplified, service to Butler added

IndyGo’s new transit center opens June 26 and this means big changes to the two routes serving BR. The new Julia Carson Transit Center is located on Washington Avenue just south of the City County Building. Here are the changesFor Bus #17: • No longer serves Kessler Avenue between College Ave. and Keystone Ave. • Inbound route: Rural > Kessler > Keystone > Broad Ripple > College > Mass. > Alabama > Transit Center • Outbound route: Transit Center > Delaware > Vermont > Mass. > College > Broad Ripple > Rural • Half the #17 buses coming from downtown used to use Kessler to go to Glendale before going to Broad Ripple. It was confusing and made a slow trip slower. Also, the bus made a loop downtown before heading north. These changes will be an improvement. For Bus #18: • Now goes to Butler University en route to BR from or to downtown • Discontinues select trips to 91st St./Meridian St. • All trips terminate at Keystone at the Crossing • No longer serves Central Ave.> 52nd St.> Pennsylvania St.> 38th St. inbound and outbound • No longer serves the Downtown Loop • Routes 18/26 Sunday North Loop: Will no longer serve Westfield/91st St. • Inbound: Keystone Crossing > 86th > College > Westfield > Illinois > 49th > Sunset > 46th > Illinois > 38th > Capitol > Maryland > Alabama > Transit Center • Outbound: Transit Center > Delaware > Ohio > Illinois >46th > Sunset > 49th > Illinois > Westfield > College > 86th > Keystone Crossing This route has been totally re-done and now serves Butler University from Broad Ripple. Given the number of students coming to and from BR, this is a great addition. IndyGo also has discontinued the downtown loop on this route which added 20 minutes to your trip. However, if you were going to the Capitol, it was handy. Also, some of the trips went to 91st/Westfield while others went to the Mall. Having just one destination makes more sense. See the details at www.indygo.net.

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

RAIN and REFRESH Staying hydrated was a cinch at this year’s Vintage Indiana Wine and Food Festival (www.vintageindiana.com). Wine lovers simply had to duck out from under their umbrellas as rain clouds played peek-a-boo all day culminating in a TORRENTIAL downpour just as local group Living Proof was leaving the stage, and fan favorite, Jenny DeVoe was about to perform. Despite the soggy forecast, thousands of people sipped and sampled wines from 26 of the state’s 60 some wineries. Many of those pouring this year have only been in business for a few years making them the perfect fit for Vintage Indiana giving people the chance to try something NEW. It was my 17th year hosting the Wine and Food Experience Pavilion where we cooked delicious dishes featuring Indiana dairy and turkey products, and matched them with Indiana wines. Curry Turkey Salad was light and refreshing and paired perfectly with a glass of off dry vignoles or traminette. Cajun Mac and Cheese was creamy, rich and spicy. A great dish with a glass of Indiana rhubarb wine. Get the recipes at www.momschooseturkey.com and www.WinnersDrinkMilk.com Last issue I talked briefly about canned wines. Some Indiana wineries are getting in on the game, as are many of the big producers. It’s a fun, affordable way to pack your cooler for an outdoor concert, boat ride or just casual deck drinking. I can’t wait to pull the tab on the new Barefoot Refresh Spritzers. They come in red or white, with a touch of spritz. Drink them chilled, over ice, or as a base for a sangria or wine cocktail. $9 for a 4 pack By the way, I got a tip that the featured sandwich at the famed Dairy Bar at the Indiana State Fair this year will be a Smokin’ Hot Grilled Cheese featuring spicy pepper cheese, smoked cheese and a splash of sriracha on marble rye bread. Those Barefoot Refresh Spritzers would pair nicely.

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 4 in the right section of the middle row which contains 1-2-3-5-6. The 4 in the upper right section eliminates the space above the 6. The 4 in the lower right section eliminates the spaces below the 1. The only place left is below the 2. You have learned one technique needed to solve Sudoku puzzles. There are many more.

To Grill and Not Be Ill It’s June! So, you know what that means… The kiddos are out of school, the pools are open, the summer festivals are in full swing, and (probably my personal favorite) cookouts!! While cookouts are a great way to hang out with friends in the outdoors, there are several things to keep in mind when lighting up that grill. In fact, what you grill and how you grill it won’t only possibly affect your waistline but could raise your risk for cancer. But don’t take off the backyard apron just yet!! There are ways to lessen and avoid these risks so you can still enjoy this entertaining season. It turns out, large portions of processed and red meats are a well-known link to colorectal cancer. More so, the manner in which you prepare your food could also increase your exposure to carcinogens. When any kind of meat, poultry or fish is cooked at high temperatures (especially if well done or charred) cancer-causing compounds, called HCAs, form and can theoretically damage DNA in ways that make cancer more likely. Well….NO ONE wants that; so try using the following tips to lessen the risks! • Focus more on grilling vegetables and fruits and less on red and processed meats. Plant foods contain phytochemicals which provide anti-cancer agents. Grilling veggies and fruit extenuate their flavors and are naturally they are low in calories and high in fiber. • If you do choose meat, try to add in chicken or fish instead of always burgers and hot dogs. Whichever meat you choose, go for a marinade with your favorite herbs and spices mixed with vinegar and lemon juice. Marinating meat has been shown to reduce the formation of HCAs. • Higher temperatures combined with fast cooking increases HCAs. Instead keep the flame low and avoid burning and charring. • Keep your grill clean by scrubbing it with a brush before and after cooking. This will prevent a buildup of carcinogens left on the grill grates. Also, preheat the grill for several minutes to kill off bacteria from past sessions. A British study found that the average grill contains twice as many germs as a toilet seat (yikes!!). So that should be more than enough incentive to keep it clean I would think. ;) • Choosing cuts that are lower in fat reduce grill flare ups that can expose the air and food to carcinogens. Good choices include loin, boneless, skinless, and flank. Don’t pour marinade on the food while it is cooking to avoid flare ups. If food does get burnt or charred trim off those portions before eating. • Avoid cross contamination by having one spatula and/or tongs for raw food another set for cooked food. Same goes for plates! Sorry I must sound like a huge party pooper with this one but I want you all to be super informed this season to keep yourself healthy and happy!! And yes, I am available most days if you would like to invite me over. 

Vol. 13 No. 12

Right in my Own B a c k y a r d by Brandt Carter Beginning Birdwatching 2 If you read the last issue, you would have gotten your first birdwatching lesson. So here are five more common birds you might see in Broad Ripple. Again I encourage you to get outside and look around. You never know what bird will sing you a song and brighten your day with a flight to watch.

Mourning Dove*

Canada Goose

For casual watchers, the mourning dove and rock pigeon may be confused. Upon closer look and study the gently mourning dove is a joy to watch. The cooooOOOOO-woo-woo-woo call is soft and mournful. They are seed eaters, and you will see them under a birdfeeder finding millet and dropped seeds. Rather than easting the seeds immediately they store them in their crop for later. You will see them also in woodland lots. They make loose nests in brush, evergreens, gutters and eves. Mourning Doves are the most frequently hunted species in North America, and I am sure this is not allowed in the village. They remain one of our most abundant birds with a U.S. population estimated at 350 million. This goose has no problem taking up residence in the rivers, mini lakes and retentions ponds surrounding the village. Considered a nuisance because of their lack of respect for personal property, poor waste habits, aggressive behavior and begging, and noise, this goose does not migrate as thought. Environmentalists agree that the abundance of food keeps them in the village. They usually love the territory they have staked out. If you see them fly, they do form the customary V-shaped formation. Yes it is called the Canada Goose, not Canadian Goose. They are also hunted. I am sure some residence would like to see open season on these pesky geese. The Mallard duck is a major resident of the Canal and ponds around Broad Ripple. The male is a combination of beautiful colors in contrast to the drab, brown speckled female. The mallards eat water plants and small animals. They are very social preferring to congregate in groups or flocks of varying sizes. They are dabbling ducks. They can have 8-13 eggs. The hatchlings are at great risk from predators like turtles, hawks, raccoons, opossums, skunks and large fish.


American Goldfinch*

Downy Woodpecker*

Canary and yellow bird are some of the names people call the American Goldfinch. The goldfinches are here all year round but the male changes color to a grayish green in early October and only molts to bright yellow with black forehead, black wings with white markings in spring. Goldfinches are fun to watch because they are very busy and their flight is lilting and acrobatic. They can be found in weedy fields and floodplains where wild thistle and asters grow. They enjoy feeders filled with nyger seed (thistle) all year round. They can even eat upside down at a feeder. They will not nest until last summer and do not nest in birdhouses. PS. The nyger seed is sterilized so if you have thistles in your yard, it is not from the birdseed. Woodpeckers are really fun to spot because they have unique characteristics. The Downy is small and not much larger than nuthatches. The Hairy Woodpecker is a bigger version of this species. So this is another pair of birds to learn to identify. The Hairy is medium-sized with a longer bill and whiter outer tail feathers. The Downy is smaller, shorter bill with black and white tail feathers. Both woodpeckers eat insects and scale trees looking for them. They will also come to peanut and suet feeders. They are at home in orchards, city parks, backyards and vacant lots.

If you practice spotting these birds and you have practiced identifying the robin, sparrow, grackle, starling, chickadee, and cardinal, you now can identify quite a few birds. Next step is to record them in a notebook and begin a life list of birds starting with these first 10 - 12 birds you have seen in Broad Ripple and add to them as to location and season. Field Guides and birdwatching apps will help you become more proficient in bird identification. Good luck birdwatching. It’s fun to know the birds that frequent Broad Ripple. Permission was granted by Jan Luckett and Bob Moul* to share their photos with my readers.

Random Ripplings

The Broad Ripple Gazette

Random Ripplings Sasha’s Watch & Jewelry Repair, 739 Broad Ripple Avenue [H3 on map], is gone. Sasha, actually Tsalya Khitlik, has retired from the business he purchased from Ann Fisch in 1979. Tsalya told me the story of when Fisch Jewelers’ watch repairman died. Mrs. Fisch had a customer with a broken watch. The customer insisted that it be repaired on-site at Fisch’s. Tsalya was working for Rost Jewelers at Castleton and agreed to come to the Broad Ripple Avenue shop to repair the watch. After that, he continued to do repairs for Mrs. Fisch. Later one night, the jewelry store was broken into and Mrs. Fisch decided it was getting too dangerous and asked Tsalya if he wanted to buy the business. He took over and stayed at the Broad Ripple location for 37 years. Tsalya showed me the carton of 7-Up bottles commemorating the 1979 Indianapolis 500 that have been on display in the shop since he took over. “A few of them have walked away over the years,” he told me. Tsalya will be missed by so many customers and neighbors.
