and 7.2 percent were another race. He stated that the news story only looked at violations of state law and did not include local ordinance violations, which made up more than 15 percent of tickets in 2018. Barlow stated that the news story didn’t account for multiple violations during a traffic stop but counted each violation as separate people. He also said the report didn’t take into account the tens of thousands of vehicles that daily travel Carmel’s major corridors, such as I-465 and U.S. 31, to visit various destinations in the city. “To accurately characterize a traveling population, a traffic study would be necessary,” Barlow stated. In the update released Dec. 4, WISHTV stated that it used the same type of information to compare tickets given in other cities, and that Carmel still stood out. “Other departments did not have nearly the disparities in numbers based on race,” WISH-TV stated in its story.

$39M in bonds approved Compiled by Ann Marie Shambaugh • AnnMarie@youarecurrent.com The Carmel City Council met Dec. 2 to vote on issuing developer bonds, an additional appropriation for the law department budget and more. What happened: The council approved several resolutions and ordinances that authorize the city to issue $39 million in developer bonds. What it means: The bonds will fund infrastructure improvements, such as roundabouts and parking garages, at the future Franciscan Health Orthopedic Center of Excellence, City Center, North End and the South Rangeline Project. What happened: The council approved an additional appropriation of $40,000 from the general fund to the 2019 law department budget. What it means: Litigation costs during 2019 were higher than expected, as it can be difficult to predict how much funding the department may need in a year because of the unpredictable nature of litigation. What happened: The council approved 2020 dates for suspension of the ordinance regulating short-term residential rentals. What it means: The city chooses not to enforce its ordinance requiring permits for short-term rentals, such as Airbnb listings, on certain days of the year. The 2020 dates are March 4 to 8 (Big Ten women’s basketball tournament), March 11 to 15 (Big Ten men’s basketball tournament), April 3 to 4 (Carmel Marathon), May 1 to 2 (Mini Marathon), May 22 to 24 (Indianapolis 500), July 11 to 18 (Songbook Academy), Nov. 8 to 9 (Monumental Marathon) and Dec. 4 to 5 (Big Ten football championship).

CHS wins state another title By Mark Ambrogi mark@youarecurrent.com The Carmel High School football team wanted to prove its defense could get physical. FOOTBALL “We talked about it all week, all playoffs actually, that we need to win the turnover battle and, obviously, we did that,” Greyhounds senior linebacker Ty Wise said. “We had to be more physical than them, punch them in the mouth, to win this game, and that’s exactly what we did.” Wise contributed a team-high 13 tackles, including two tackles for loss, and an interception in the Class 6A No. 5 Greyhounds’ 20-17 victory against Metropolitan Interscholastic Conference rival Center Grove Nov. 30 at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis. “To start our high school careers winning a state championship and to finish it winning a state championship, we couldn’t ask for anything better,” said Wise, who has committed to play for Indiana University next season. Wise’s 39-yard interception return led to Spencer Hanna’s 25-yard field goal in the second quarter. Center Grove committed four turnovers compared to one for Carmel. It was Carmel’s ninth state championship. Since the 6A class was added in 2013, Carmel has been in the title game five times in seven years. The Greyhounds (11-3), who lost to Warren Central 27-7 in the 2018 state final, edged Center Grove 16-13 in OT in the 2016 state title game.

“It was exactly how the game ended up in 2016, just a heavyweight fight,” Carmel coach John Hebert said. “We knew when we had a 17-point lead (at 20-3), they weren’t going to go away. We knew we were going to have to claw, scrape and put it together.” Senior running back Dylan Downing led the Greyhounds with 102 yards on 11 carries, including two big thirddown runs on Carmel’s final possession, as Carmel was able to run out the final 3:21. “We’ve seen a lot of runs by Dylan the last four weeks where he keeps topping himself,” Hebert said. Greyhounds senior quarterback Gabe Quigley threw for 93 yards, including a 48-yard TD pass to Baron Smith. Quigley had to leave the game with a broken clavicle in the third quarter. “We had to force him to come out,” Hebert said. “He was making plays and getting first downs and he did not want to let his teammates down.” Sophomore Zach Osborne, who started earlier in the season, replaced Quigley.

German pizza makes debut By Ann Marie Shambaugh AnnMarie@youarecurrent.com After operating a vendor hut at the Carmel Christkindlmarkt for two years, CHRISTKINDLMARKT Andrea Baird decided she wanted to see the real thing. So, on the day after Christmas 2018, she and her husband flew to Germany to visit as many Christkindlmarkts as they could to gather ideas for their own hut. It didn’t take long before they fell in love with flammkuchen, a thin-crust pizza topped with onions, bacon and cheese. “It was such a staple at all of the Christmas markets in Germany, we knew we wanted to bring it back (to Carmel),” Baird said. But that was easier said than done. Authenic flammkuchen is prepared in a 3,600-pound oven designed to bake the pizza for one minute at 500 degrees. It can only be moved with a

So, Baird found a U.S. company that makes pizza ovens and had them build one at her Tipton County farm. When it was time to move it to the Christkindlmarkt, the City of Carmel’s street department provided assistance. In addition to Farmhouse Flammkuchen, Baird runs the Groomsville Popcorn hut, which also sells roasted nuts and lebkuchen hearts. Learn more at carmelchristkindlmarkt.com.

Pickleball courts planned at Meadowlark By Desiree Williams news@currentincarmel.com Christine Perkins discovered pickleball three years ago when she was looking for a new exercise CCPR and a way to relieve stress. Perkins, a Westfield resident, is a member of the Pickleball Gang at the Monon Community Center. The Pickleball Gang is a club with more than 200 members. Because of the game’s growing popularity, Perkins said the MCC and the Carmel Racquet Club are reaching capacity and reducing playing time. “Unfortunately, there are no outdoor public pickleball courts in Carmel, and Carmel has been slow in addressing the demand for pickleball,” Perkins said. “As a premier city, Carmel needs to include pickleball as a major attraction.” Carmel Clay Parks & Recreation has heard the plea. “There’s a very strong constituency,” CCPR Director Michael Klitzing

said. “It’s a niche group, but it’s a very active niche group that also demonstrates to us that if we actually construct pickleball courts, we have a high belief that they are going to be well used.” The addition of pickleball courts and upgrades to the park system will

be funded by bonds through the Clay Township Impact Program, totaling $21 million. The department completed a physical assessment of each park to determine where and how to allocate funds. Architects have drawn preliminary illustrations to present at public input meetings for Carey Grove, Flowing Well and Meadowlark parks. Meadowlark Park is the proposed home for up to four outdoor pickleball courts. “Since it’s centrally located and large enough and has a relatively flat topography, it seemed like the perfect location to have our first outdoor pickleball courts,” Klitzing said. Klitzing said the projects for all three parks will be out for bid this winter, with construction starting in February or March. The parks will be closed during construction and will reopen in fall 2020. For updates on all department projects, visit carmelclayparks.com/ reimagining-parks.

Centier Bank recognizes that sensitive and personal information is widely targeted by criminals. That is why it’s important to establish a personal relationship with your bank, and to reach out when anything seems suspicious, or to simply ask questions to ensure you are protecting yourself. In today’s technology-dominated world, criminals are targeting personal information beyond a credit card number. Everything--from medical records to social media logins--is on the table when it comes to identity theft and cybercrime. As identity theft scams grow more widespread and elaborate, it is important for consumers to stay informed on the latest scams and identity theft tactics being used by criminals. A scam is defined as “an intentional attempt to mislead you with the goal of personal gain.” Here are five ways to protect your identity and financial information during the holidays: 1. If your ATM has something strange attached to the card slot, do NOT use it. Those devices are called “skimmers,” and

will capture your magnetic strip data as well as your Personal Identification Number (PIN), and your funds will be in the hands of criminals. E-Skimming is the digital variation, where credit or debit card or other personal information is captured by a thief. Keep track of your purchases and check your statements often to make sure your account information hasn’t ended up in the wrong hands. Experts also recommend using a credit card or PayPal to make online purchases. 2. When you’re out shopping in the mall, leave identifying pieces of information, such as surplus credit cards, Social Security card, passports, and even checkbooks (if you are not using it) at home. Leaving them in your purse, pocket, or car is an open invitation for theft. 3. If it seems too good to be true, it probably is. Phone scamming is still in vogue among identity thieves. If someone reaches out via phone (or email) claiming you’ve won a prize, but in order to claim it, you must provide personal information (such as a Social Security Number, or bank account), hang up immediately.

4. Gift card scams are skyrocketing. If you are ever asked to pay for something via a gift card, or someone tries to sell you a gift card at a discounted rate, those are huge red flags. Only buy gift cards from trusted sources, or directly from the merchant. 5. Call 888-5-OPTOUT to stop banks from sending you preapproved credit offers in the mail. Also, you can stop unwanted sales calls by registering your phone numbers on the National Do Not Call Registry at www.donotcall.gov or by calling 888382-1222. If you have questions about protecting your personal information, reach out to your local Centier Bank manager, or go to centier.com.

A Carmel veteran who spent 22 years as a combat medic is continuing to give back ACHEIVEMENT to those here at home at the Indianapolis VA Hospital. “As I neared retirement from the (U.S. Army Reserves), I knew the one thing I’d miss the most was the camaraderie that’s shared between those that have worn the uniform,” Andrew Nagel said. “I felt working with the veteran population at the Indianapolis VA would be a great way to help fill that impending void.” Nagel achieved another long-term goal in November when he received his bachelor’s degree in nursing from WGU Indiana. “Some 18 years ago I became a licensed practical nurse, and shortly thereafter began my aspirations to go on to become a registered nurse. But, as can happen, life took a few wind-

ing turns along the way,” Nagel said. “So, here I am, at 43 years old finally getting this thing done. It’s definitely a case of better late than never.” With a wife, three children and a full-time job, he knew it would be difficult. He started his first term at WGU in May 2017 carrying a full load of classes. Nagel said continuing to serve his fellow veterans as an RN is an “immense honor that comes with a high degree of responsibility.”

Home builder helps families AVOID FOOT SURGERY By Mark Ambrogi mark@youarecurrent.com

Old Town Design Group has added a second home for families in need. Liz Yust, marketing OLD TOWN and sales manager for Old Town Design Group, said Clay Terrace approached Old Town Design group about a property it had purchased at the corner of 146th and John streets. “They had purchased the property to have a right-hand turn lane placed to help with traffic entering into Clay Terrace,” Yust said. “After having the home sit vacant for a while, they approached Old Town Design Group and asked if we would be interested in helping with the management of the property while allowing it to serve as another Safe Family home as we have on Smokey Row Road and Range Line Road.” Yust said the group is able to help provide housing to area families in need through a nonprofit initiative, The Orchard Project, which is an ex-

tension of Old Town Design Group. Old Town partners with Safe Families, which interviews the families. The Clay Terrace home is a three-bedroom ranch with a large yard. “It’s basically for a family in crisis, whether that is due to life circumstances or natural disaster,” Yust said. Clay Terrace has transfered management of the property to Old Town, and after a group of 40-plus individuals helped clean and prepare the home. Plans were for a family to move in during December.

Women continue to lead Commentary by Lorene Burkhart It’s inspiring to hear the story of women’s suffrage and how it took 72 years of efforts for VIEWPOINT women to gain the right to vote. As we celebrate 100 years of women’s voting rights, we are reminded that the women who made this possible had the same leadership qualities that we see in the women leaders today. They take risks, bounce back and celebrate diversity of thought. In a recent Wall Street Journal report on women in the workplace, the headline announced, “The first step is the steepest,” adding that before women hit the glass ceiling that prohibits them from being CEO, president or on a corporate board, they have to master the first rung of the management ladder. Men outnumber women nearly 2 to 1 when they reach the first step up — the manager jobs that are the bridge to more senior leadership.

Our own Eli Lilly and Co. was featured in the article for tackling the diversity problem head-on. About 400 women in management went through a fast-track leadership process that resulted in the number of women in Lilly management increasing from 38 percent to 44 percent in three years. A few of our local women were mentioned in a recent Fortune magazine featuring the most powerful women in business and politics. Gail Boudreaux is president and CEO of Anthem, and Seema Verma is the administrator of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services. The Simon sisters — Deborah and Cynthia Simon-Skjodt — were mentioned as major political donors. Good for us!

Lorene Burkhart resides at The Stratford in West Clay. She is the author of seven books.

Pastor launches Carmel’s only black church to fill void

Shaune Shelby speaks in a church in Uganda. (Submitted photo)

By Ann Marie Shambaugh AnnMarie@youarecurrent.com Carmel has no shortage of places to worship, but Shaune Shelby felt something was missing when he looked at the COVER STORY options in his hometown. With dozens of churches in the city, none were founded or currently led by African Americans. So Shelby, pastor of Ebenezer Baptist Church on N. Harding St. in Indianapolis, decided to do something about it. Earlier this year he founded Ebenezer Baptist Church Carmel, which meets Sunday mornings at Creekside Middle School, 3525 W. 126th St., although it is seeking a permanent home. “(We have) megachurches around here, but where do people of color go to be a first thought and not a second thought?” Shelby said. “I always ask my friends, ‘Do you feel like you’re a part of your church, or do you go there?’” The Carmel service begins at 9 a.m. and promptly ends 45 minutes later. After a few handshakes and hugs, Shelby is out the door by 10 a.m. so he can arrive at the main campus before its 10:30 a.m. service begins. “I’m always there at the start of worship,” Shelby said. The new campus has been a welcome addition for Sumiko Covington, a Westfield resident who attends services each week in Carmel. She described the weekly Carmel service as “short, sweet and intimate” and appreciates Shelby’s efforts to build community in Hamilton County. “You will see him in schools, checking on his kids from church, and in his kids’ school, in the neighborhood do-

ing whatever he can,” Covington said. “He’s someone who will roll up his sleeves and get right next to you.” Shelby is a strong believer that families should make worship a priority and participate in it together. Children stay with their parents during the first part of the service, which includes singing and prayer, but during the sermon they head to another room for an age-appropriate activity. A father of three, Shelby said he is troubled by faith becoming “optional” for many families. “We have so many competing interests Sunday mornings, from sports to being social to needing rest from the work of the week,” Shelby said. “I want to get back to basics and encourage people to be service-minded and walk by faith. That means (Ebenezer Baptist Church) won’t do all the gimmicky things but will stay focused on the word of God and be open to all people, all races, spiritual backgrounds and all faith backgrounds.” Shelby studied at Indiana State University and earned an MBA from Florida Metropolitan University. He was ordained in 2000 and began his ministry serving as a youth pastor in

Chicago, Tampa and Virginia. During that time, he also worked in the corporate world as area sales manager for Shell Lubricants. Upon moving back to Indianapolis, he served as an associate minister at Pilgrim Missionary Baptist Church, where he was baptized as a child. He became pastor of Ebenezer Baptist Church in 2013 and eventually left his corporate job. His ministry also in-

• Favorite pastime: Family time when we travel. I am able to unplug and just be dad and husband. • Favorite local restaurant: There are so many options in Carmel.

Du Bois • Motto to live by: “Do things with excellence” • Favorite Bible verse: Hebrews 11:1 cludes leading a men’s study class for the Indiana Dept. of Correction’s Indianapolis Re-Entry Education Facility. Shelby also enjoys ministering abroad and has visited Ghana and Israel as part of his spiritual journey. But it’s his hometown that’s on his heart, and he said Carmel — which has an African American population of 2.5 percent, according to 2017 American Community Survey estimates — has been “so welcoming” of EBC’s new campus. “God’s word doesn’t have any color,” Shelby said. “We just have different ways we do it.”

Perpetual celebration

Rein in our government

Commentary by Terry Anker The leftovers are gone. The turkey bones have been boiled and the resulting soup was enjoyed. Soon, the decorations will be hung by the chimney with care. Our sights set on the coming holidays, and then the new year, distract us from the impending threat of winter. Sparkling lights, abundant food and the closest friends and family all align to help us wrangle some deep-seated, primal fear about the hunger and isolation triggered by the frosty nights. Still, doesn’t it all seem most harsh weeks past the solstice in the waning days of January? The festoons are packed neatly away, back in the attic awaiting next year. Guests have gone home. And we are focused on bringing our waistlines back into pre-holiday circumferences. But, the days remain short, cold and blustery. Don’t we need each other much more after the fun is over? Even the bitter and unrepentant Ebenezer Scrooge learning the depth of his error was heard to exclaim, “I will honour Christmas in my heart, and try to keep it all the year.” He could have sent a goose to the Cratchits, donated a few bucks and settled in to enjoy the 19th-century London equivalent of holiday football games. Instead, he vowed to play the long game. As family clears out for another year, can we make the same declaration? If not, have we missed the point of the whole thing?

A holiday survival guide Commentary by Danielle Wilson All right, people. Here’s my plan for surviving the holidays. Feel free to adopt, share or reject HUMOR outright. I really don’t care. Because that’s my mantra as I wade through the next few sugar-filled, sleep-depriving, financially and emotionally draining weeks. It won’t be all bad, true. Who doesn’t love a season that embraces 1970s claymation, egg nog and ugly sweaters? But I’ve learned through the years that December can become your worst nightmare if you don’t prepare properly. The key? Don’t get too invested. In anything. You’ll only be setting yourself up for disappointment and alcoholism. So, here you go. You’re welcome. 1. Just say no. “No, I can’t make it to the office party.” “No, I won’t be participating in Secret Santa.” And, “No, I’m not driving you, my darling daughter, to ice skating, Yogurtz, Castleton and then to Emily’s.” Borrow from the Mothers-of-Twins handbook: Just say no!

2. Expect the worst. The almighty flu will smite your house, and the 12-foot fir, laden with antique glass ornaments, will topple. If you expect high levels of chaos and stress, you’ll either be well-prepared when it hits or pleasantly surprised that you survived unscathed. Win-win. 3. Schedule “me time.” In this season of gift-giving, don’t forget to love yourself! Take 20 minutes after your fifth Meijer run to play solitaire. Lock yourself in the bathroom for an afternoon of “The Crown.” Have a second cranappletini with your gal pal. You can’t successfully navigate choppy Yuletide waters if your mental compass is perpetually pointing south. Ignore the guilt, recite the mantra and practice self-care. Good luck, friends. See you on the other side. Peace out.

Editor, Today, we have a federal government that continues to overstep its bounds and increase its power. Unfortunately, we can’t vote our way out of the mess that the politicians in Washington, D.C. have made for us. When the framers drafted the U.S. Constitution in 1787, they knew it was natural for a government to expand and become insensitive, even oppressive, over time. So, a few days before the Constitution was finalized, the delegates unanimously decided to put a tool in place to allow the people to bring the government back under control of the states. That tool was the amendment process detailed in the second clause of Article 5. Here, the collective states are given the authority to propose amendments that actually bypass Congress. Since Congress won’t act to correct itself, it is time we, the people, use Article 5 to make the corrections needed. You can help make this happen by going to conventionofstates.com. Sign the petition and join the grassroots army. Larry Hutson, Carmel

Weekend segments: A year in review Commentary by Dick Wolfsie I’d like to celebrate some of the special people I interviewed while doing my weekend segHUMOR ments on WISH-TV in 2019. Gregg Bell is 90 and still practices dentistry and is director of that department at Logansport State Hospital. But wait, there’s more! In 1953, Bell won the Olympic gold medal in long jumping in Melbourne, Australia. When I interviewed him, I asked him to show me the 26-foot, 5.2-inch distance that won him first place. He eyeballed the floor and walked it off within a quarter of an inch. At the age of 18, Carmel resident Ashton Gleckman wrote, filmed, edited and produced an incredible documentary about Holocaust survivors that was featured this year at the Heartland Film Festival. He learned to do all this from YouTube videos. Not to brag, but I learned from YouTube how to use dental floss to get a stuck

ring off my stubby finger. Senior pickleball player Ralph Fowler is the star of the Monon Center pickleball league, and I was there with TV cameras to surprise him for his 90th birthday. He plays every bit as well as people half his age. He beat me in a game. I’m sure I could have beaten him if there had been a rematch, but I was too tired to play again. Lonnie Bedwell lost his vision in 1997 when his best friend accidentally shot him during a hunting trip. The story of his adventures while blind include kayaking down the Colorado River, climbing to the top of Mt. Kilimanjaro and skiing down the world’s most challenging slopes. “I wish I had my sight back,” Lonnie said during our interview, “but I wouldn’t trade the last 23 years for anything.” Kenny Sailors died in 2016. He was credited as the player who introduced the jump shot to basketball in the 1930s. I interviewed Jake Hamilton, who produced a biographical film about Kenny Sailors. Kenny is not in

the Basketball Hall of Fame, but he should be. The documentary should give him a better shot, just like he gave basketball. Dr. Richard Moss, author of “A Surgeon’s Odyssey,” tells the story of how he (a Jasper head and neck surgeon) traveled across Asia, with extended stops in Bangkok, Nepal and Bangladesh to treat the locals, operating on people with almost unspeakable deformities. Stymied by limited resources and the challenges of diverse cultures, his story deserves a full documentary feature film, not just a 10-minute interview with me. These stories and more are available on the WISH-TV website or can be Googled with my name, along with the guest’s name.

By Mark Ambrogi mark@youarecurrent.com Carmel Symphony Orchestra Music Director Janna Hymes began a mission to make the MUSIC traditional holiday concerts more pops-oriented last year. “It’s fun for everybody,” Hymes said. “We want everyone to have a great time and get into the holiday spirit. We know there is a lot going on and people are inundated with things to do at the holidays, but this is pretty fun, and then you walk outside and the Christkndlmarkt is going on. “It’s a great time of the year at the Palladium, and the show is very festive.” The Carmel Symphony Orchestra’s Holiday Pops concerts are set for 3 and 7:30 p.m. Dec. 14 at the Palladium at the Center for the Performing Arts in Carmel. The afternoon show is geared toward children with Santa and Mrs. Claus. “I decided to bring in a mix of local talent, and I think it’s going to be fantastic,” Hymes said. “It’s really a concert that we really enjoy playing. It’s so different from what we do with our masterworks. In fact, we are looking at increasing our pops offerings. We know the community really likes those concerts.” Carmel High School’s Ambassadors, the mixed show choir, will perform. “I haven’t worked with them before, so I think it’s really going to be fun to bring them to the Palladium because they are just so beloved by the community,” Hymes said. “They are great singers. They are doing some fantastic music. One is a cappella and the rest is with the orchestra.”

Maybe we should go out and play some music,’” Koz said. They did, and Koz has been doing it ever since. Benoit has joined him on several tours. “This is year No. 22, which is very unbelievable for me because I never would have thought it would go on this long,” Koz said. “It’s a tribute to the fact that people love holiday music.

The group formed in 2006 when members of another chorus left to create their own choir. “Over the years, the word has spread,” said Kelly Kahn, chorus member and Westfield resident. “We were having a meeting in a restaurant, and before our meal, we sang harmony grace, a short prayer. Our waitress was so impressed, we left her with our information. She’s been a member with us now for almost a year and a half.” Harmony Magic is presenting a holiday concert at 3 p.m. Dec. 14 at Westfield’s Carey Ridge Elementary School,16231 Carey Rd. “We’ll be signing some traditional holiday music,” Kahn said. “Then we add in some not-so-traditional songs that are a lot of fun.

There’s no place like the kitchen for the holidays Commentary by Randy Sorrell and Bill Bernard The Christmas season brings families and friends together like no other time of the year. REMODELING Well, there’s serious competition from grilling season at the Sorrell condo. Kitchen counters become the backbone of gathering spaces as veggies are chopped, charcuterie trays created and wine bottles celebrated. This modern kitchen, while not our installation, was brilliantly designed by Adam Gibson, a certified master kitchen and bath designer here in the Indiana Design Center (open to the public). The building is famous for strategic collaboration, such as what Adam achieved with Jack Laurie Gallerie for the rich flooring pictured. We are thrilled to work with each of them. Waterfall edge There’s something alluring about an island countertop wrapping vertically to the floor — referred to as a waterfall edge. In vogue for a decade and certainly for years to come, they are best employed when using magnificent natural stone or stylish engineered quartz. The matching grain continued on a 90-degree angle is stunning! Storage Removing walls to create your dream kitchen often generates storage issues. The advent of open floor plans has prompted creative storage

Modern kitchens incorporate contemporary designs and features. (Submitted photo)

solutions. Enter peg system drawers for storing plates and bowls along with lighted interiors so we don’t peer into dark recesses. Speaking of lighting, let’s use toe kick lighting to show off the beautiful new floor from the Jack Laurie Gallery. Not only does it make the cabinets appear to float, it’s a safety feature and can be used as a nightlight. Don’t forget to light under wall cabinets, above soffits, and shelves, too. Have a blessed holiday season and I’ll meet you in the kitchen! Randy Sorrell is president of SURROUNDINGS by NatureWorks+, a Carmel homeimprovement firm.

Ruins of Adobe churches in Pecos Historical Park. (Photo by Don Knebel)

Pecos Historical Park: 800 Years of History Commentary by Don Knebel Pecos National Historical Park provides an opportunity to explore the ruins of an ancient PuebTRAVEL loan village and a Civil War battlefield. In about 1100 A.D., the Puebloans, an indigenous people living throughout the American Southwest, established a village of mud buildings 26 miles east of what is now Santa Fe, N.M. Located near the strategic Glorietta Pass, the villagers became prosperous trading with other indigenous peoples. In 1540, Spanish forces under Vasquez de Coronado discovered the village, then a five-story pueblo housing 2,000 residents, and named it “Pecos. In 1598, the Catholic Church sent a Franciscan friar to Pecos. He destroyed the circular kivas the Puebloans used for religious ceremonies and smashed their idols, creating enormous resentment. The original priest was replaced in 1621 by a more tolerant one, who convinced the residents to build a massive adobe church, by far the largest in New Mexico. In 1680, Puebloans throughout New Mexico revolted against what they considered unnecessarily harsh

Spanish rule. The residents of Pecos killed their priest, demolished the huge church and built a new kiva near the church. The Spanish fled but soon returned and built a much smaller adobe church within the site of the earlier one. In the late 18th century, Pecos began to decline from disease and Comanche raids, and by 1831 Pecos and its historic church were abandoned. In 1965, the ruins of Pecos became part of the Pecos National Historical Park, enlarged in 1990 to include almost 7,000 acres. A trail takes visitors past the foundations of the original adobe church, the still-standing walls of its replacement and a restored stone kiva. The park also incorporates the site of the Battle of Glorietta Pass, an 1862 battle along the Santa Fe Trail that ended the Confederate campaign to separate the Union from the West. Don Knebel is a local resident who works for Barnes & Thornburg LLP. For the full column visit donknebel.com. You may contact him at editorial@youarecurrent.com.
