"Fantastic piece in more ways than one (“Web exclusive: From Broad Ripple to ‘One Tin Soldier,’” Nov. 21-28). What life-long Indy res doesn’t remember old Dawson Lake as the main teen hangout and “happening” place when Indy was just a sleepy Nap Town. Dawson Lake was “the hot spot” to hang out at. A few of us even remember when we saw Jinx and Coven at the old Irving Theater and the first Indy resident (one of us) that made it big time in Rock Scene. Even though the gothic and occultist overtones. What was important, she was a fellow Hoosier. It also shows a side of Jinx Dawson beyond the rock star fame; it shows that our celebrities underneath it all are very human and extraordinary at that — for she gave up the fame and her career in the sake of love for her elderly father. Something we all of middle age deal with ourselves these days, taking care of elderly family members. A very moving piece in many ways.
