KT Tunstall performs at Vogue Developer Winston Knauss shared his experiences at the river meeting.

Residents hold meeting about river at WRYC By Alan Hague



Residents concerned about the health of the White River recently held a meeting at the White River Yacht Club. Over 150 interested residents attended. There were several speakers at the meeting organized by Pat Riley. This meeting did not reach any conclusions or offer much hope of a path to fixing some of the problems with White River. Each speaker told of the long and expensive road that can be taken. The first to speak about the river was Bruno Pigott, Chief of Staff at Indiana Department of Environmental Management (IDEM). Pigott explained that during the boat tour of the river to assess problems, he saw that the White River, north of the yacht club, is becoming shallower and shallower due to sedimentation build up. There is also milfoil and algae growth. Silt buildup can be a result of construction near the river anywhere upstream, even as far away as Anderson. Algae grows faster when the water is shallower and thus heats more from the sun. Nutrients from fertilizer runoff due to upstream farming also contributes to algae blooms. Next was Southern Fisheries Supervisor in districts 4-6 (includes Marion Country) for the Indiana Department of Natural Resources (DNR), Dan Carnahan. He explained how DNR issues permits to treat vegetation in waterways. Next was Steve Summerlot, Engineering Project Manager at Citizens Energy Group. He discussed the projects of dredging Geist and the canal to fight silt and milfoil growth, explaining that it is a difficult and expensive process. Brandon Herget, Deputy State Director for United States Senator Joe Donnelly, spoke briefly about the Senator’s work in supporting past river and waterway projects. Kathy Andrey, resident, shared her story of attempting to get a grant to remedy the river in 2014. The grant was not selected for funding. 1 BRHS Homecoming parade

20th annual Walk to School Day is Oct. 5

The Indiana Safe Routes to School Partnership and Health by Design are encouraging schools and parents throughout the state to help students walk or bike to school every day, but especially on Oct. 5, which is the 20th annual International Walk to School Day. “We hope the 20th annual event will increase interest in getting to school in ways other than vehicles,” said Kim Irwin, who coordinates Health by Design and the Indiana Safe Routes to School Partnership. “But the truth is the number of children walking or biking to school is at an all-time low.” Only 13% of children walk or bike to school, compared to 50% in 1969. Despite evidence that walking and biking provide physical, social and academic benefits, as well as reduce neighborhood traffic congestion, household costs and auto emissions, the vast majority of students arrive at school in a vehicle. Tips on how to organize a Walk to School Day event at a school or in a neighborhood are available at www.walkbiketoschool.org. List of Indiana schools participating, visit walkbiketoschool.org/go/whos-walking/2015/IN The Indiana Safe Routes to School Partnership works to increase the number of children safely walking and biking to school throughout the state by sharing information, resources, technical assistance, and ideas. It is a collaborative effort spearheaded by Health by Design and comprised of government, community, health and education organizations. For more information, visit www. healthbydesignonline.org.

Rules on page 7.

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

The band is: Sean Thomas (vocals, guitar, and keyboard), Doug Day (lead guitar), Geoff Sears (bass guitar), Nick Gass (drums), and Kevin Jones (keyboard). Two things you should know: the band is all men and their song, Hesitate, is great. Go see ‘em,

BR House races heat up In House District 86 which includes most of Broad Ripple, incumbent State Representative Ed Delaney faces challenger Scott DeVries. Northern Broad Ripple (House District 87) will be represented by a new State Representative since our state rep, Christina Hale, is running for Lieutenant Governor. Carey Hamilton is seeking the post as is Connie Eckert. Also on the ballot are two Washington Township Schools tax increases. According to Ballotpedia, the Washington Township school board has two referendums—$185 million for construction projects and $6.5 million for extra general-fund expenses—on the ballot.

Sep 30 - Oct 13, 2016

The transit debate is heating up. A coalition called Transit Drives Indy is supporting the measure and includes a broad coalition of groups. Others aren’t so sure. Opponents want the Red Line on Keystone Avenue (not College) and say the grant would be better spent on purchasing more buses, hiring more drivers, etc. In response, Lauren Day of IndyGo says that the Federal grant received for the project is tied to the Red Line and that the new transit tax revenues will fund the improvements sited for other routes. She defended the College Avenue route for the Red Line since, unlike Keystone Avenue, it is historically a very walkable destination where safe stops can be set up. Keystone Avenue is too busy, she said. For more information, go to www.indyconnect.org or transitdrivesindy.com. For the opposition, see StopTheRedLine.org and CollegeAvenueIndy.org. My only comment is that the millennials (whom some claim want transit upgrades to make Indy competitive with other cities) don’t actually take public transit. My 25 year old niece instead gets a UBER on her iPhone and shuns transit (she lives in Wisconsin, though). She recently took UBER Share in Chicago for $5 from Soldier Field to her hotel despite the CTA being close by. Indy loves to debate transit, do studies and plans, and then do nothing. This time it’s different. We have a great new Transit Center. We can do better. I plan to vote “yes” on November 8 on the transit tax referendum. Let’s not let perfect be the enemy of the good. I hope you vote yes too. Gingerbread Houses and Midnight Egg Hunts at BR Park There’s a lot going on this fall at Broad Ripple Park. First of all, welcome new Assistant Park Manager Taylor O’Neal. Upcoming events include: October 18: Haunted Gingerbread Houses October 28: Moonlight Egg Hunt To register or for more information, call 317-327-7161 or email taylor.oneal@indy.gov.

IndyGo unveils new Red Line Bus prototype bus while transit debate heats up On September 13, IndyGo displayed its prototype bus at Keystone at the Crossing/ Fashion Mall. The new route will run from 65th and College south to the University of Indianapolis and is funded by a Federal grant. Hence, the Bus Rapid Transit Red Line Project is not dependent on the passage of an income tax hike. Relatedly, on November 8, voters will have the chance to approve a new transit tax to fund better transit (more frequent service and new rapid transit lines).

Clue: L equals T

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 5 in the middle section of the bottom row which contains 1-3-6-7-9. The 5 in the middle section of the top row eliminates the space between the 6-9. The 5 in the middle section of the middle row eliminates the space between the 1-3. The 5 in the right section of the bottom row eliminates the space between the 1-9. The only place left is between the 3-6. You have learned one technique needed to solve Sudoku puzzles. There are many more.

The exhibit Weave Wars is up at the Indianapolis Art Center, 820 E. 67th Street [A4 on map]. Dozens of woven art project are all over the Center–from pipe cleaners to electrical cords. The exhibit runs through November 19.

Fall Finds: Don Porcella’s “Self Portrait” in woven pipe cleaners.

Rachel Denny’s “Monarch” a knitted deer.

Thanks go to Sahara Restaurant, 832 Broad Ripple Avenue [H4 on map], for supplying the delicious food for the exhibition opening.

J Pinot Gris, Russian River Valley, Sonoma County, California–lush, full bodied dry white; alluring nose of apricot and honeysuckle; crisp clean finish; great glass with anything from roast chicken to sushi to goat cheese and crackers. Keep this one in mind for Thanksgiving too. Congrats to Butler University Dance Professor Cynthia Pratt and dancers from the Butler Ballet for the compelling outdoor production of “Riverrun Revisited” on September 24th. The performance was part of the Streamlines, interactive, place-based project that combines science and art. The hour-long presentation on the banks of Brookside park told the story of Pogue’s Run River and other local waterways through dance, poetry and music. It also made the several hundred in attendance think about what we are and are not doing to preserve our local water sources. Learn more about the project www.Streamlines.org Greg Bacon added another layer of flavor to the already tasty Perk Up Cafe Fall Festival on Sunday. Along with the Perk Up House Band, the local jazz musician drew in a big crowd, who also enjoyed the succulent sausages, house-made breads and cakes and a nice selection of local beers and German wines. Bier Brewery’s German Wheat, Green Hills Organic Cabernet Sauvignon and SHINE Riesling were the most popular served. All satisfying beverages available at local grocery and wine stores. Available at Broad Ripple’s own Cork and Cracker, some hard to find wines from the Languedoc region of France and the Basque region of Spain. Don’t miss the Wine of the Month Club either–great value and variety. Jill A.

Right in my Own B a c k y a r d

5146 Brouse Avenue

(behind 52nd & Keystone McDonald’s)

by Brandt Carter White River Wrap Up I got to go canoeing on White River again this Labor Day. My son, his family and I put in at the Cornell Avenue Launch next to Indianapolis Art League−two kayaks and one canoe. Although I had the White River Guide app on my phone, the sun made it hard to keep track of where we were on the map. So away with the phone in a waterproof bag and off we paddled with only our very vague sense of where we were going. I had canoed from Noblesville to 116th Street last year, and earlier this year, we paddled from 116th Street to 62nd Street. This time we put in a bit farther from Broad Ripple Park, so we wouldn’t have to portage around the Broad Ripple Dam, near the Indianapolis Art Center at Cornell Avenue and headed out. The river was calm and fairly clear. We had fun trying to guess where we were passing. From the river, the banks in this area are heavily wooded with sycamores, hardwoods, and lined with stone. It was hard to see what was on the other side of the river’s edge. But, having grown up here, we could guess where we were from having driven the area often. First we passed the Indianapolis Art Center and then under the College Avenue bridge. Although the app shows the Blickman Education Trail and Levee Trail, we could not identify them. Next was the Meridian Street Bridge. Along this stretch, we followed a Bald Eagle as it flew from branch to branch. Wow! Spotting the eagle was the most impressive sight of the day. Now we were heading into west Indianapolis as Meridian is the zero dividing line! We were able to recognize Holliday Park because of the families wading in the river. It was a hot day so the cool water was a welcomed relief. Here the water was shallow unlike the previous legs of the river farther north. I became very aware of BIG rocks sticking up or very close to the surface. This journey was filled with shallow waters and rocks−thus, the broad ripples of the White River. No wonder early settlers were dismayed when they realized the White River was NOT navigable. And, no wonder they thought a canal would be the answer to commerce in the area. I have now practiced a multitude of ways to get a beached canoe or kayak off a rock or free from the rocky bottom. From scooting left and right to moving back and forth, digging the paddle into the river bed and pushing off, to giving up and pushing or towing the canoe or kayak back to deeper water, we had nearly a dozen times where we had to get unstuck. Only my 56-pound grandson escaped running aground. The shallow ripples of this stretch was challenging−both physically and mentally when deciding on which way to get over a small rapid. As you might guess, the river won most of the time and caused us to have to figure out how to free ourselves. We passed under the Kessler Boulevard Bridge and the app said we passed Friedman Park. I could identify the buildings of the Riviera Club on the left bank. Rocky Ripple was our next site with more houses flanking the banks. It was fun to see them. We passed Butler University but didn’t get a look at the Central Canal at this point. I was able to figure out the Christian Theological Seminary’s grounds were next just before we went under the Michigan Road Bridge. We could identify the Indianapolis Museum of Art next on our left and the 100 Acres Gardens. By this time, most of were whining, “How much more time? Aren’t we there yet!” By the way, we had stopped at a rocky beach half way to have the lunch we had packed and wade in the water! When we paddled under the I-65 bridge, we could see the Hasler Naval Armory in the distance−our destination. We were now making calls to my husband, the designated pick up person. He advised us to keep going past the 30th Street Bridge for next boat launch. We opposed the notion. It seemed like the 30th Street Bridge kept moving farther away as we tried to close in on it! Finally, we pulled up at the steps just before the bridge, and everyone disembarked and stretched. The trip was done but we reward our efforts with Graeter’s Ice Cream on the way home! My advice to those who want to canoe or kayak the White River, stay north of 62nd street in Marion County. This trip was quite challenging because of the ripples and shallows, but it was fun! We learned exactly how Broad Ripple got its name. We spotted osprey, hawks, king fishers and lots of ducks and turtles. We learned how to get unstuck and we all enjoyed the water, the banks, a three hours’ worth of conversation and all of nature.
