Kaye's Beauty College in Noblesville isn't known for its "beauty school drop-outs."
Actually, the school is known for quite the opposite.
While hairstyles and fads have changed over the past 40 years, one thing remains constant. Since its start in 1974, the beauty college has been teaching high school students to older adults what it takes to be successful in the cosmetology industry.
Westfield Police Department has purchased two unmarked Ford Mustangs in an effort to target traffic enforcement. The traffic unit will dedicate all of its time to patrolling Westfield streets.
"By purchasing these unmarked Mustangs, we will be able to target two areas that have been difficult for officers to effectively patrol," Westfield Police Chief Joel Rush said in a media statement. "The traffic unit will be able to blend in and target offenders in neighborhoods as well as target aggressive drivers on U.S. 31. Aggressive drivers are the cause of accidents and the city is focused on keeping our citizens safe."
The most dangerous opponent in sports in the one you overlook.
That statement seems obvious. Think about how often in college football the big school gets beat the small school. It doesn't happen every time, but when a team is looking ahead to their next opponent instead of the team in front of them funny things can happen.
One of the fundamental lessons of the 9/11 tragedy was that our government carried a share of blame for the failure to stop the attacks. Not because it was asleep at the switch or ignorant of the dangers that Al Qaeda posed, but because the agencies charged with our safety did not share what they knew, either up and down the chain of command or with each other. The attacks were preventable with shared information.

When I first became mayor in 2004, one of my goals was to have an institution of higher learning located here in Noblesville, and I've been fortunate to be able to work with many partners, organizations, and individuals over the years to make this goal a reality. In the fall of 2011, the Anderson University Falls School of Business started offering an Master of Business Administration program in Noblesville. I was pleased that a graduate degree program was being offered in city limits (and is still being offered - the fall class began just a couple of weeks ago), but believed that it was important to have a local education option for undergraduate students as well.
Our state has a rich history, and we have a lot to celebrate in Indiana, especially in our community. For example, did you know that Hamilton County was actually named after Alexander Hamilton, who was one of the Founding Fathers as well as the first Secretary of the Treasury?
In 1818, the land, which is present day Hamilton County, was purchased by the U.S. with the Treaty of St. Mary's. Over the years, our area has blossomed and is now home to three of the largest cities in the state; Carmel, Fishers and my hometown, Noblesville. Although we have one of the fastest growing economies in Indiana, our community has humble beginnings intertwined with some of the most heartwarming people you could ever meet.
O.A. Harnish was a prominent and prolific photographer in Noblesville in the 1890s and early 1900s. The Harnish Art Studio was located on the east side of the Historic Courthouse Square. He advertised himself as "The Leading Photographer of Hamilton County." He used a Kodak camera and developed his own photographs in an "Instantaneous Process." He preserved the negatives for future orders. Although this trade card featured young children actively planting flowers, his photographic subjects would have had to been very still while he was capturing them on camera. The finished photos were mounted on stiff thick cardboard and each had his name prominently displayed at the bottom of each print. Although there were other photographers in Noblesville at the time, more Harnish photographs seem to have survived than any other.
This week I want to talk about screening for colorectal cancer (CRC). Fortunately, screening for this type of cancer has become more common due to increased public awareness aided by campaigns such as CDC's Screen for Life www.cdc.gov/cancer/colorectal/sfl/.
It is estimated that there will be 136,830 new CRC cases and 50,310 deaths from CRC this year, making it the third deadliest cancer in men and women over 50 years of age. If caught when the disease is localized to the colon, 90 percent of patients live at least five years after they are diagnosed. However, only 39 percent of people are diagnosed at an early stage.
