Butler-Tarkington borough goes 1 year without murder amid violence reduction efforts https://thecarriagehse.com/butler-tarkington-borough-goes-1-year-without-murder-amid-violence-reduction-efforts/ Fri, 14 Jan 2022 02:16:27 +0000 https://thecarriagehse.com/butler-tarkington-borough-goes-1-year-without-murder-amid-violence-reduction-efforts/

INDIANAPOLIS — A North Side Indianapolis neighborhood is making progress in its efforts to reduce violent crime.

The Butler-Tarkington neighborhood has gone 365 days without another murder, which community leaders and those involved in anti-violence efforts attribute to the community as a whole. It’s the fourth time since 2016 that the neighborhood has gone a full year without someone being killed in a criminal homicide.

“I am a believer in the bottom-up approach in which neighborhoods conduct their own crime prevention strategy in partnership with the city and law enforcement, and together they work to address not only immediate violence , but also against the root causes of the violence,” said Reverend Charles Harrison, chairman of the Indianapolis Ten Point Coalition board of directors and pastor of Barnes United Methodist Church.

Groups like Indy Ten Point work to patrol several areas of the city, including Butler-Tarkington, several days a week.

It was late summer and early fall of 2015 when the Butler-Tarkington neighborhood was rocked by several murders, which sparked a major spurt of change that has continued ever since.

Ted Feeney was then president of the Butler-Tarkington Neighborhood Association.

“In 2015, over a period of nine weeks, six of my neighbors were killed; four within the neighborhood limits and two within the city,” Feeney said. “In a very short time, many families, blocks, streets, an entire neighborhood were nervous and traumatized by what happened, but we took action and came together.”

Residents of the Butler-Tarkington neighborhood have partnered with community stakeholders, city leaders, Indy Ten Point, the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department, businesses and others to work proactively to reduce crime and violence .

“When we say we’ve gone another homicide-free year in four of the last six, considering what’s going on in the city, that’s really an incredible milestone,” Feeney said.

The city has been hit by record violence, particularly in 2021, when 271 people were killed in Indianapolis homicides.

“No one should have to live in fear in their neighborhood and their city. It can be done,” Feeney said, thanking the people and groups who have come together over the past seven years to take action.

WISP Deputy Chief Chris Bailey said Butler-Tarkington is a “great example” of what can happen when residents stand up and say they’ve had enough.

“No matter what program, what organization, what government entity is in place, if residents aren’t fed up, it won’t move forward,” Bailey said.

Bryan Bradford, current president of the Butler-Tarkington Neighborhood Association, said they have developed a strong relationship with the WISP Northern District Commander, which has been a driving factor in their efforts.

“It feels good to be able to call him when we have a problem, and he steps in immediately,” Bradford said. “I also want to thank the residents of Butler-Tarkington because we can’t do this without them. if you see something, say something. If you see him, call.

The last murder to take place in the Butler-Tarkington neighborhood happened on January 12, 2021 when 32-year-old Ashley Bell was fatally shot in what investigators ruled a domestic murder.

Just two months prior, in November 2020, Harold Lee III was shot outside his own mother’s house in the 3800 block of Cornelius Avenue.

“He was just very, very adamant about getting the kids to do something positive in their lives,” Harold’s brother Damon Lee said.

“It just doesn’t make sense when you have someone who has touched so many of these young people’s lives over the past 10, maybe 15 years coaching them and being there for them that they would die tragically. himself,” Damon said.

The Lees grew up in the Butler-Tarkington neighborhood and worked to help others in the community by mentoring and mentoring young people.

“I feel like you can change a kid and help them make big decisions and see that life is bigger than living on the streets or committing murder,” Damon said.

When asked what Harold, who has worked to help others and push for peace in his community, would think about progress in violence reduction efforts, he said: “I thinks he’d be proud no one else was killed, but that’s bittersweet.

The reason is that Harold’s case was never solved and no arrests were made.

“You should celebrate your wins because every little win matters to the whole town, but for us as a family we are still devastated with not one, but two unsolved homicides,” said Damon, who said that his brother-in-law, Clarence Wade Havvard, was also shot and killed on the same street in 2015.

“I appreciate 365 days because no one should have to go through what my family is going through,” Damon said.

He hopes that people will not only continue to be motivated to participate in crime reduction efforts, but also to speak out and help secure justice for those who suffer the losses they have suffered from violent crime.

Another victim still awaiting justice is 10-year-old Deshaun Swanson and his family. He was killed in a drive-by shooting in 2015, which remains unsolved more than six years later.

“Deshaun Swanson was killed in this neighborhood during this terrible time. His family still mourns him, the police department still mourns him, and I know the locals mourn him. His case is still unsolved, and someone out there knows who and why and when and it’s time for you to do the right thing,” Bailey said.

Bailey added: “This is how we stop this violence, this is how we stop the cycle, this is how we hold accountable those who victimize our communities, not just here, but across the city.”

You can call Crime Stoppers of Central Indiana anonymously at (317) 262-TIPS for any information.

In addition to efforts in the Butler-Tarkington district, the crime-fighting model has been adapted in other areas of the city, including Highland Vicinity, Crown Hill, Carriage House East Apartments and Across the Borders of Marion County, Fort Wayne, IN.

“I think it’s enough to change one at a time. If you change one at a time, you end up changing a community,” Damon said. “For these groups, I tell them to keep doing the work. You’re going to have good days and you’re going to have bad days, but just keep doing the work.

Indianapolis County Councilman John Barth shared his thoughts on the successes of crime reduction efforts on Twitter Thursday afternoon.

“I join @Charlesharriso5 in recognizing this important milestone and appreciate the activities of the 10 Point Coalition. I especially appreciate the strong partnership that @IMPD_news has developed with neighborhood groups throughout District 7 and the hard work of leaders I look forward to continuing my longstanding support of @butler-tark in tackling crime and underlying issues such as food and economic insecurity.

Ford Motor Co. opens Michigan Central Station to provide update on renovations https://thecarriagehse.com/ford-motor-co-opens-michigan-central-station-to-provide-update-on-renovations/ Wed, 12 Jan 2022 11:00:00 +0000 https://thecarriagehse.com/ford-motor-co-opens-michigan-central-station-to-provide-update-on-renovations/

The top three floors of Ford Motor Co.’s Michigan Central Station will be dedicated to a luxury hotel and restaurants when a massive five-year renovation project is completed by mid-2023.

The 100,000 square feet on the ground floor of Detroit’s former transcontinental gateway will be a combination of public gathering space, cafe, food court, and sufficient event space. large to accommodate 1,000 people.

In between, there will be 10 floors of offices in the station tower for employees of Ford and its mobility and autonomous vehicle partners – and possibly other automakers.

The vision of Ford’s executives in 2018 when it purchased the shell of a building that has long been seen as a target for a wrecking ball is starting to come to fruition.

During a media tour of the old depot on Tuesday, Ford’s construction managers showed the progress hundreds of skilled workers have made in more than three years since the Dearborn-based automaker paid $ 90 million. dollars to the Moroun family for the imposing station and the adjacent station. properties in Corktown.

The station, which closed in 1988, was a symbol of Detroit’s decline in the late 20th century. Like many abandoned buildings in the city, the old depot had been stripped of its precious metals.

Rain, ice, sleet and snow have deteriorated the plaster and terracotta tiles over time – parts of the original building that are slowly being restored with painstaking detail, said Rich Bardelli, director of the construction of Ford for the Michigan Central Station project.

The old shed at Leadenham Estate will become the new location of Leadenham Teahouse. EMN-211230-164552001

The ongoing pandemic making it difficult to reopen and the need to vacate the premises of the post office they shared with their mother, post mistress, sisters Kirsty Kershaw and Katie Mace have decided to sell their Leadenham tea house to William Reeve of Leadenham House estate.

William has transferred the equipment and is on track with plans to reopen the tea room in the converted transport block as the centerpiece of his disused stables renovation project at the house.

With a lot of work to do, they hope to kick off on January 20 with a mini festival.

William said this exciting deal has been a draw for some time: “When Katie and Kirsty arrived eight years ago, I really enjoyed their formula, but it was clear they could get a lot more out of it if it was. space allowed it. “

He got involved in their second folk festival and things evolved.

“The girls have very loyal customers and since it was mentioned that the tearoom was moving into the shed, they have been inundated with support,” said William. “The excitement that the tearoom will relive is a testament to what they have accomplished. I want to keep their standards high, but it will really be a Leadenham Estate operation and with a lot more space. We are renovating the shed and then equipping the other stables with handcrafted retail units available to traders who come to our markets, ”he said.

“He has a fantastic Georgian heritage. We sanded the walls and you can see the historic masonry modifications. Two wooden rods descend from either side of the central arch, enclosing the clock weights, which were made by Charles Frodsham, a prominent Georgian clockmaker.

He intends to use expert advice to wrap the weights in glass so that they are visible.

He liaised with English Heritage and the district heritage officers, who he says understand these buildings need to be brought back to life. “Heritage is at the top of my priorities,” said William. “I am more than happy to compromise. The interior walls will be laid bare so that you can see the exposed construction elements and beams.

Her father, Peter, remembers when the building was still used as a shed before the stables were taken over by the farm in the 1960s.

William also wants to open up the dividing wall to a separate room at the far end of the building so that customers can see an internal roaster behind the counter.

“I am a coffee lover and want to roast our own varieties of coffee here. I also have a very good barista and trainer, ”he explained. Visitors will be able to browse the retail units in the stables, once set up, where there will also be a shop also selling work on behalf of the artisans.

William also intends to convert the barn within the complex into a reception venue that can accommodate up to 400 guests for his wedding events business, with the option of a bridal boutique as well. He has identified areas to accommodate a large parking lot for visitors where craftsman stands can be placed around the edges and old workshops will be renovated for craftsmen to demonstrate their processes.

He has another plan with a local brewer to create products from the estate. “There is a will and an interest in being sustainable again and not forgetting our heritage,” said William.

He also wants it to be a local community space for events, as well as a local history museum in the old firehouse. “There was an old maid during WWI who kept a diary in which she complained about zeppelin airships scaring the horses,” he said.

Halfway between Boston and New York City, Connecticut’s hills, scenic beaches, and historic towns have inspired musicians, actors, sculptors, painters, directors, writers, and more for many years. Mark Twain, for example, lived in Hartford and F. Scott Fitzgerald had a house in Westport.

Today, there are many cities across the state with thriving artist communities – too many to include in a single article. So, for now, take advantage of this list of six “artistic” cities in Connecticut.

Kent

Kent is a quaint New England town teeming with art galleries. Besides Bull Bridge – one of Connecticut’s only covered bridges – and the myriad of waterfalls in Kent Falls State Park, the city is home to several art institutions, including the Morrison Gallery, founded by famed guitarist William Morrison, the Kent Art Association and Craven Contemporary. There is also a thriving downtown shopping scene with plenty of items from local artisans.



Ridgefield

Ridgefield has a number of Broadway stars among its residents, including composers Alan Menken (“The Little Mermaid”, “Little Shop of Horrors”), Stephen Schwartz (“Wicked”, “Pippin”) and Robert Lopez and Kristen Anderson -Lopez (“Frozen”, “Book of Mormon”). So it’s no surprise that the city also has a thriving arts scene. In May 2021, the Connecticut Office of the Arts designated the city as the state’s premier cultural arts district. The neighborhood includes a Contemporary Connecticut Theater (ACT), Ridgefield Theater Barn, Dance Conservatory, Lounsbury House, Keeler Tavern, Aldrich Museum and more.



Norwalk

Strange mansions have a connection tunnel and a “throne room” gazebo https://thecarriagehse.com/strange-mansions-have-a-connection-tunnel-and-a-throne-room-gazebo/ Sun, 02 Jan 2022 20:50:48 +0000 https://thecarriagehse.com/strange-mansions-have-a-connection-tunnel-and-a-throne-room-gazebo/

CARTHAGE, Mo. (KTVI) – A pair of Victorian-style mansions in southwest Missouri have caught the eye of Zillow gone wild, a Twitter account dedicated to sharing weird and ostentatious real estate ads.

The homes are located on nearly 13 acres. They have a combined 8 bedroom and 11 bath (10 full, 1 half) over 16,851 square feet.

Realty Executives Tri-States posted 222 photos with the list, showcasing authentic Carthage marble, stained glass and beveled glass, ornate chandeliers, and intricate woodwork. But we suspect that it is not the architectural features of the late 19th century that you are here to see. The quirks are in the details when it comes to this list.

A virtual tour of the two three-story mansions shows that there is a safe, as well as a long tunnel connecting the basements of the two houses.

There’s also a full-size caboose parked on abandoned train tracks behind a modest gray shed on the property. The shed was a former radio station building.

Additionally, there is an enclosed brick gazebo containing a wooden throne that appears to have been carved out of a large tree growing through an exposed opening in the ground.

As you browse the gallery at the top of this story, you will discover more ostentatious and original touches.

The quirky property has a bit of history behind it. Dr John Carter had the original mansion (with the wraparound porch) built between 1893 and 1896. A Civil War veteran, Carter served as both a soldier and a medic in the Union Army. He moved to Carthage after the war and got married.

Carter eventually became the largest landowner in Jasper County, Missouri, with 3,000 acres to his name. Much of this land was ceded, and the city named a nearby park in Carter’s honor.

Carter died in 1913 at age 79, and the brick mansion was eventually repainted.

Several decades later, cable and radio businesswoman Ruth I. Kolpin Rubison purchased the Carter Mansion and sought to restore the house. She managed to have the paint removed and lived out her last years in the shed. According to Realty Executives Tri-States, she’s made it look like a train depot ever since she bought the old caboose and placed it behind the building.

Kolpin Rubison died in April 2019 at the age of 96.

Carter Mansion in Carthage brings national attention to Zillow | Local news https://thecarriagehse.com/carter-mansion-in-carthage-brings-national-attention-to-zillow-local-news/ Sat, 01 Jan 2022 00:51:00 +0000 https://thecarriagehse.com/carter-mansion-in-carthage-brings-national-attention-to-zillow-local-news/

VSARTHAGE, Mo. – One of Carthage’s most historic homes is on the market, and its listing with an online real estate company has gained national attention.

Ron Petersen Sr. and the Ruth I. Kolpin Foundation, named after his mother, have decided to sell Carter Estates, a complex on East Chestnut Avenue that includes the restored 1880s home of Dr. John Carter, one of the first doctors to live in Carthage during the Reconstruction period after the end of the Civil War in 1865.

The ad, which only recently appeared on the Zillow real estate website, was posted on December 28 on the Facebook page and Twitter feed of an online newsletter titled “Zillow Gone Wild”, which presents what he calls “the best of Zillow”. “The post has over 1,200 comments and has been shared over 850 times, and it was featured on The Kansas City Star.

“It deserves attention, really,” Petersen said Friday during a tour of the house with the Joplin Globe. “It’s not a little farm that you sell here – it’s a historic place, and at the same time my mom really made it beautiful just during the time she spent doing it all. was a labor of love; she loved the property very much.

Dr John Addison Carter, who built the original mansion, was inducted in 2013 into the Pantheon of Heroes of Carthage, and Ruth Kolpin Rubison was inducted in 2015.

Petersen said his mother rented the house when they arrived in Carthage in 1963 and bought the KDMO-AM 1490 radio station. This station and the FM station that Kolpin and Petersen would start shortly thereafter were all broadcast from the first floor of the house, which is still known as the “Radio House” by many in Carthage.

Petersen said Mayse and Potter Construction owned the house at the time, and soon after taking over Kolpin, they offered to sell it to him.

“My mom bought it and over time she could see that the place needed loving care,” said Petersen. “The only way for her to do that was to move the radio station, so in 1979 we moved downtown where we are currently located. “

Before starting to renovate the house, Petersen said Kolpin bought the old Frisco train depot that stood for years in the Frisco Bottoms yard and moved it, stone by stone, to its location. present just northeast of the Carter Mansion.

She turned the train depot into a house and moved in while renovating the Carter house. The depot still has a bedroom and other living spaces in the old cargo handling rooms, as well as old wooden benches in an area that was probably the lobby.

Just north of the depot is a restored caboose. Peterson said it was an original Frisco Railroad caboose that had number 1201, the Carter Manor address, so his mother must have had it.

One of the first things Kolpin did when she brought her attention to the Carter House was to remove the white paint from the exterior brick walls of the house. She also restored the black walnut woodwork and ornate plaster ceilings, and she restored the rooms up to the attic, which she transformed into a living space in its own right.

She also emptied the basement, which Petersen said was a wet and dirty place at first. One room in the basement was apparently a laboratory used by Carter to prepare his own pharmaceuticals, a relatively common practice among 19th and early 20th century physicians.

Petersen pointed to a heavy stone desk in a room Kolpin turned into a family room.

“This room has Dr. Carter’s prep office where he composed all of his prescriptions,” Petersen said. “He’s been there for who knows when. This is Dr. Carter’s lab. The office is integrated into the building and made of stone. You would never want to move it. It was the lab room. There were probably chairs and tables in there. He was quite the guy.

Kolpin returned to the mansion after its renovation and lived there for years. Petersen said her mother decided to build a garage for her car, but like most of her ideas and projects, this one grew.

“She designed and redesigned and soon redesigned again what was supposed to be just a carriage house,” Petersen said.

“Eventually, she built the shed, a house with an elevator to all three floors. She had visions of having a place where she could recover. She knew that as she got older she might need a place because she couldn’t climb those stairs forever. She then decided to expand it and kept adding and adding new ideas to the plans until it was a bit bigger than the Carter Mansion, in fact.

The belvedere

In front of the Carter Mansion is a large gazebo that covers the stump of a huge throne-shaped maple tree.

Petersen said her mother was very proud of two large sugar maples that stood in front of the Carter Mansion. The trees were certified by the state of Missouri as bicentennial trees in 1976, that is, they were old enough to have lived in 1776 when the United States was born. In 1998, a storm blew over Carthage and knocked down one of them. Kolpin was very upset, her son said.

“I said, ‘Mom, look at the bright side: you can take this tree, saw it in wood, dry it in a kiln and maybe build something with it,” said Petersen. “That’s all it took. It didn’t take long for him to build this gazebo around this tree to commemorate it.

Petersen said her mother used the gazebo as a place of entertainment and had set up an ice maker, refrigerator, tables and chairs along the circular walls around the stump. The second maple had to be removed after his death and became a danger.

Peterson said the decision to sell the property was difficult, but he believes it is the right decision.

Much of the proceeds from the sale will go to the Kolpin Foundation, which will continue to be used to commemorate her mother.

He said his family and the Ruth Kolpin Foundation had considered keeping the property and turning it into a bed and breakfast with the rental proceeds going to the foundation, but they realized that was not feasible.

“It’s bittersweet, but there’s no way we can take care of this property,” Petersen said.

“It was difficult to make that decision, but now that I’ve made it, I think it’s the right decision. I really do. “
