Moose Lodge #2138 celebrates 50 years By Mario Morone



The Washington Township Moose Lodge #2138 will celebrate its 50th anniversary on Saturday, October 8 starting at Noon. They are a fraternal organization that organizes various events for kids in need that impact the local community and host a variety of social events. Governor Stan Bright and Treasurer Eric Renner recently mentioned their history and current events. “The original charter for the Washington Township Moose Lodge was issued on October 30, 1966. Our first location was at 1577 E. 77th Street near White River. We moved to this current location from 8400 Union Chapel Road in 1979,” Renner explained. Editor’s note: The 1968 and 1970 Indianapolis phone books list the Lodge at 6265 Carrollton Avenue. In the 1970s the Lodge was at 811 Westfield Boulevard, where Bazbeaux Pizza is now. “We did a complete renovation before moving here and revitalized the place, paving the parking lot and lodge, repairing the AV (audio-visual), HVAC (heating ventilation air conditioning), roof and installing a satellite TV system,” said Bright. He currently serving his second two-year term as Washington Township Moose Lodge #2138 Governor, having received a dispensation from the General Moose Lodge Governor since he ran unopposed in 2014. His father, Dave, was also a member of the Moose Lodge here. Bright retired from Allison Transmission, where he also worked with Delco Electronics and Allison’s Gas Turbine Division. Renner is the National Sales Manager for Sports Select USA that installs wireless entertainment systems for sports bars and restaurants. They met through mutual friends at a local establishment years ago before becoming members at Moose lodge #2138. “We host events here weekly. Every Monday is Euchre night. On Wednesdays, Moose Lodge 2138 we have trivia contests and a Queen of 5146 Brouse Ave. Hearts Drawing. On Sundays during the National Football League season, lodge2138.moosepages.org Indianapolis Colts games can be seen on any of five wide screen TVs. There is also a pool table and overhead movie projection screen. We plan to start playing poker since acquiring a charity and gaming license,” Renner said. “There will a band, barbeque, hog roast, hamburgers and hot dogs. We hosted a kick-off event on Saturday, July 23 with local singer Brenda Williams,” Bright mentioned. Further information will be available in their newsletter, http:// lodge2138.moosepages.org “There are nearly 1,500 Moose Lodges across the United States and in Canada, Great Britain and Bermuda. We have charters in Central Indiana, including Beech Grove, Greenfield, Greenwood, Indianapolis, Richmond, Shelbyville and Speedway. We also host events for ‘Outside the Box’ (www.outsidethebox.org) which provides services for special needs individuals from their upper teens to adults. We recently purchased 400 tickets to Indianapolis Indiana games from one of the ladies who works for the Special Olympics. We later sold them and donated $420 to the Special Olympics for Autism Speaks,” Renner added. “The Washington Township Lodge is open seven days a week. We have a great bunch of dedicated members that meet for fun and good laughs, all the while remembering we’re supporting a greater mission of kids in need and our senior members. A prayer ceremony occurs every night at 9 p.m. where everybody

Prospective members can be sponsored by a friend. They can fill out an application that is reviewed and voted on by our Board with a background check being done. We have special times when the general public is invited. The Moose Lodge mission in helping others includes three long-time non-profit enterprises.

The Child City is a home for children and teens in need, from infancy through high school. Dedicated in July of 1913 by the Moose fraternal organization, Mooseheart cares for youth whose families are unable to care for them in a home-like environment photo by Mario Morone and provide training and Moose Lodge #2138 chapter (left) Treasurer Eric Renner and (right) Governor Stan Bright. education. Moosehaven (www.moosehaven.org) is a 70-acre retirement community near Jacksonville, Florida on the St. John’s River that provides care and independent living for senior members. It has been home to the Loyal Order of Moose and Women of the Moose since 1922. Moose Charities (www.moosecharities.org) is a registered non-profit in Mooseheart, Illinois that provides resources for the continued operation and support of the Mooseheart Child City & School and the Moosehaven retirement community. As the Washington Township Moose Lodge #2138 prepares to celebrate its 50th anniversary, their mission continues by helping those in need and providing fellowship among long-time and new friends in the community.

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

Dow Jones and the Industrials Indiana Punk History Talk and Concert Friday, September 16 State Street Pub 243 State Street - 21+, doors 8 PM/show 9 PM, $5

The iconic art-punk band, Dow Jones and the Industrials are reuniting to celebrate the release of their much-anticipated anthology Can’t Stand The Midwest. I’ve been obsessively listening to my copy of the album this week. From 1979 to 1981 the Industrials were a huge part of Indiana punk scene - and my introduction to independent music. Their technology-driven manic music is the stuff that legends are made of. I was lucky enough to meet the band in 1979 when Chris Clark was voted president of the Purdue student body and I was an uber-shy freshman sneaking into the student government offices to use the typewriter. The panel: 40 YEARS LATER: THE ROOTS OF INDIANA PUNK AND THE RISE OF GULCHER Who was the first Indiana punk band? How did Gulcher Records begin? Why are there two (or three?) versions of the Gizmos? Who were the Chinaboise, Cerberus, Retarded Godz or Skunts? Why do people still care? Hear from a panel including 1976 Gizmo and fanzine legend Eddie Flowers, 1978 Gizmo and author Dale Lawrence, DJI’s Greg Horn, Hoosier music historian Rick Wilkerson, Yara Cluver of the Panics, and more! Moderated by Eric Weddle and featuring a slide show with dozens of Keith Smith’s never-before-seen punk scene photos from the 1970s and ‘80s, rare fliers, ephemera and more. The music: This reformed band features original members Greg Horn, Chris Clark and a “technologically enhanced appearance” by Mr. Science, plus Mike Thisshow and Vess von Ruhtenberg.

Songwriters in the Round: Heather Styka, Wes Collins, Clint Alphin Saturday, September 24 Indy Folk Series at Unitarian Universalist Church 615 W. 43rd Street - all-ages, doors 6:15, show 7 - 9 PM, $20, under 12 years old free, students/seniors $15

The new season of the Indy Folk Series is starting off on a lovely note with these three excellent songwriters. They met around a campfire at the Kerrville Folk Festival and have been harmonizing and swapping songs ever since. The Indy Folk Series is an all-ages listening room venue featuring superb acoustics, art on the walls, and candles on the tables. Concerts are held once a month, September - May, in the performance space at the Unitarian Universalist Church of Indianapolis. Light refreshments, including a variety of beverages, available prior to the concert and during intermission. Visit their website for the full series lineup.

Holliday Park exhibit, Ruins”, Re-Opens





olm lc


The revitalized Ruins at Holliday Park will open to the public on Saturday, September 17, from 5:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. as part of the Rock the Ruins festival. According to Friends of Holliday Park, the project was part of a five-year, $3.2 million capital campaign. The Ruins, which originally opened in 1978 has been off limits to the public for almost twenty years. A free celebration with live music by Toy Factory, food trucks from the Indy Food Truck Alliance, beer and wine stations, and free kids activities will be held then. The group notes: “The Ruins are the most identifiable element of the park. International sculptor Karl Bitter designed the Races of Mankind sculptures in the 1890s. The assemblage of fountains, columns and statues, designed by artist Elmer Taflinger, is one of Indianapolis’ most distinctive art installations. For almost two decades, The Ruins stood fenced in and overgrown – off limits to the public. The new design by local landscape architects Eric Fulford (deceased) and Ann Reed of NINEbark, re-energizes the front third of the park creating spaces for events, performances and celebrations, and invites the public to interact with The Ruins as never allowed before. Horticultural design of the gardens created by Chris Turner/Utopos Gardens and construction by Smock Fansler Corporation.”

Car Free Day is September 22

Sorry Detroit. Indy is going car free on September 22. IndyGo and others are urging you to ride a bike, take the bus, or at least car pool on that day. They are also displaying their new rapid bus on that day on Monument Circle from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. The new red line bus rapid transit bus route will serve Broad Ripple. “IndyGo is excited to showcase this state-of-the-art bus technology in Marion County,” said IndyGo CEO and President, Michael Terry. “We encourage residents to learn about what dedicated transit investment would mean for our IndyGo network and community by experiencing the bus in person.” Note that the red line bus rapid transit is not dependent on passage of the income tax hike on November 8.

New 463 Area Code, 10-digit dialing start soon

The Indiana Office of Utility Consumer Counselor reminds everyone that 10-digit dialing for all local phone calls in the 317 area code will be mandatory starting October 15. You can even use it now. The OUCC has more info at https://lnkd.in/bUGNWY7, including a link to an IURC order. The 10-digit pattern for local calls will allow room for the new 463 area code, while also allowing all consumers with 317 numbers to keep them. Indy is the only place I have lived recently which had just one area code. However, it’s no fun learning to dial 10 numbers again.

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

Fall Flavors Festival September in Indiana seems to be more like a “tween” season when it comes to the weather, so why not do the same for our wine palate? The lingering heat and humidity one day makes us reach for a crisp cold wine to quench our thirst. Then Mother Nature gives us a day in the 70’s and an evening in the 50’s and we crave warming reds and hearty craft beer. We won’t have to choose between seasonal flavors the next few weekends as Perk Up Cafe/Brotgarten in Broad Ripple at 6536 Cornell, celebrates its annual Fall Fest Sundays on September 18th and 25th from noon-4pm. Enjoy refreshing German wines, locally produced German style beer, juicy bratwurst and succulent sauerkraut served on house made breads (the nutty rich pretzel buns vs the light airy yeast rolls–it’s a tough but tasty decision to make!) There will be music and since it’s Sunday, that also means the weekly Koffee Klatsch will be taking place too starting at Noon. That’s where you can have a cup of house roasted coffee with a slice or two of house made German pastry or cake. Prost!! More info at www.perkupindy.com

Summer Bubbles You all know how much I love Vinho Verde, that crisp, dry, low alcohol style of wine from Portugal. Aveleda is one of the oldest and most prominent producers of wine in that region of the country. I’ve had the pleasure of visiting the winery which is one of the loveliest around, with fairy gardens and roaming peacocks on the grounds. While there, I tasted several other labels produced by the winery, that up until recently were not available in the Midwest. Aveleda’s brand “Casal Garcia” offers Vinho Verde in both the white and rose style as a still wine AND as a sparkling wine. Most Vinho Verde has a very small amount of spritz, but these sparklers offer true soft bubbly pleasure at an affordable price. If you like Spanish Cava or Italian Prosecco you will want to explore the sparkling side of Vinho Verde too. A bottle is an affordable way to add a bit of flair to a tailgate party, weekend brunch or TGIF with friends. Jill A. Ditmire is an Omnimedia wine specialist, AWS certified wine judge, freelance broadcast journalist and 20 year home owner in the Warfleigh neighborhood of Broad Ripple.

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 medium puzzle. We will try to put a 6 in the right section of the top row which contains 1-5-7. The 6 in the left section of the top row eliminates the spaces on both sides of the 7. The 6 in the right section of the bottom row eliminates the spaces above and below the 7. The 6 in the right section of the middle row eliminates the spaces below the 5. The only place left is two below the 1. You have learned one technique needed to solve Sudoku puzzles. There are many more.

by Brandt Carter Books: Here to Stay This summer I have spent lots of time cleaning out what needs to be thinned, purged, or organized. I found two big boxes of baby clothes from 40 years ago, 45 records (speed not number) from 60 years ago, boxes of magazines saved from 25 years ago to look! I won’t bore you with any more stuff that we found, but the “stuff” confirmed how life has changed. Don’t need the magazines anymore…I have bing.com. Don’t need the snap undershirts for babies….there are onesies. Don’t need the 45 records….I have downloads. I did find a few books that I couldn’t part with. I surmise that photos and letters may become extinct because of digital pictures and emails, but I have faith that books are alive in spite of Kindles and e-books. For years I have been attending the Indiana Library Foundation book sale and I am always amazed at the number of people who descend upon the used book sale. Each time I attend, it confirms my belief that books and print are here to stay. The library has always been a special place for many folks. At the original Broad Ripple Library on Guilford, I used to love to check out the mounted pictures to accompany my reports for school. I felt really accomplished when I mastered how to use the Dewey Decimal System to find a book on the shelves. The check-out cards in the back of the book were fun to study to see who else had read the book. I loved the summer reading club when I got stars or stickers for a book read…now days this would not encourage many to engage. Oh, have libraries changed! Today, you will find lots of computers alongside books in both the children’s and adult’s sections. There are self-check outs, job coaching and employment help, and generous offerings of classes, discussions, and events. Some libraries even check out items other than books. The library has changed to serve their customers just like many other businesses. One event the library offers has remained fairly constant—the used book sale. The Library Service Center hosts the sale five times a year, each for five consecutive days. If you are a Friend of the Library Foundation, you get first-night access to the sale. After the first evening, the sale located at 2450 N. Meridian Street is open to the public. The items at the sale are donated or have been pulled out of circulation from the different libraries in Indy. Pricing is the amazing feature of these events: Adult Hardbacks: $2.00; Juvenile Hardbacks: $1.00; Paperback books: 50 cents; Juvenile Paperbacks: 25 cents; Records, Tapes & CDs: 50 cents to $1.00; DVDs: $1.00 - $3.00. They also have a corner for off-price, more valuable items. Last time I went they had lots of comic books, and I got 3 for a dollar. My grandson loved them! The remaining sales this year are in September and November. Check out https://www. indyplfoundation.org/book-sale for exact dates. Just a bit more about the sale–it began in 1982 and was called Secondhand Prose. More than $4.6 million has been raised for the Library Foundation through book sale proceeds. The Indy Library Store also sells online at Amazon, AbeBooks and eBay anytime. Finally, you can donate your books to the Indy Library Store! One time I was in line checking out, and I saw a woman watching a twenty-something customer that had a huge stack of children’s books. I heard her ask if she was a teacher. The young woman said yes and that her school didn’t have the funds to buy books for her class. This was neat because the older woman told the clerk to put that stack of books on her tab! That truly was a moment when I was glad I came to the book sale that night. You never know who you will meet there, what great items you will find, or what will happen. If you still have the love of books, CDs, DVDs and want to build your private library, check out this fantastic book sale. The Indianapolis Public Library website is www.indypl.org. I might see you there. I can always find room for one more book! Brandt Carter, artist, herbalist, and naturalist, owns Backyard Birds at 2374 E. 54th Street.

2016 Midtown Education Summit By Mario Morone

mario@broadripplegazette.com The 2016 Midtown Education Summit is Thursday, September 22 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. in the Sunburst Atrium of the Children’s Museum of Indianapolis, located at 3000 N. Meridian Street. The annual event has grown since its inception in 2013. “In the first year, we brought between 60 and 100 schools together from pre-kindergarten to grade 12. It’s a one stop shop for families who are trying to locate the right academic program for their children. We find that families sometimes struggle to locate education options for their children, but we do our best to help them find out about these program opportunities. The educational summit is a once a year, once in a lifetime opportunity for families to get all of the information they need for their child where they can see all these schools in one place at one time. We want to make people aware of the opportunities available for their kids. It’s hosted annually by the Children’s Museum with about a dozen sponsors, which include 100 Black Men, the Marion County Indiana Board of Realtors (MIBOR), the local Kiwanis Club, Meridian-Kessler Neighborhood Association and State Farm Insurance,” explained Michael McKillip, Executive Director at Midtown Indianapolis, Inc. A career transition inspired his achievements in the local community. “I spent about a decade working at the State House as a lobbyist. I left in 2007 to start my own real estate agency and construction company. I bought an abandoned home in the Mapleton Fall Creek area in 2002. In getting to know my neighbors and getting involved in renovation and through volunteer opportunities with Harmoni, we focused on renovating the historic midtown photo courtesy of Midtown neighborhood that includes Midtown Education Summit at the Children’s Museum. 17 communities. In 2007, while serving as Board President for the Maple Road Development Association, I helped established Midtown, Inc. and became its first full-time Executive Director in 2012. By working together several years, partnerships were formed in uniting these 17 communities. Regardless of current conditions, neighborhoods were suffering from neglect, but we have been working to bring them together to one voice for community investment,” McKillip noted. Ongoing revitalization has made the Midtown area a soughtafter destination for home buyers and parents seeking educational prospects for their children.” Butler University College of Education professor Dr. Lori Desautels will give a presentation, “Educating Our Kids Using Science of the Brain.” Dr. Desautels will answer questions after her discussion, which starts at 6 p.m. Academic and administrative staff from charter schools, parochial schools, Montessori schools, IPS and others will be available to answer questions about their curriculum and programs. All are welcome to attend this event and free parking will be available. “Whether you have questions about your next Midtown school or you are a Realtor who wants to know more about options in Midtown, this is the event for you,” said Elizabeth Marshall, who is a State Farm Insurance agent in Broad Ripple. “We really want families from all over our community, from Fall Creek near the Museum to the Broad Ripple area to have awareness of the quality of pre-kindergarten through high school educational options available to their children,” said Anthony Bridgeman, Director of Community Initiatives at The Children’s Museum, who is a title sponsor for the event. For more information about the Midtown Educational Summit, visit their Events page at: http://www.midtownindy.org/2015EducationSummit.php or contact Keelee Slack at (317) 600-3141. The Midtown Educational Summit is one of many annual events sponsored by the nonprofit group located in Meridian-Kessler.
