Listen to farmers, not oil industry lobbyists
This paper recently published a letter from oil lobbyist Maureen Ferguson attacking Indiana farmers and ethanol producers. I'm a farmer, and I want you to know the oil lobby is flawed in its arguments.

Her claims that corn used for ethanol increases the cost of food has been proven false. Food is cheaper.

RFS has failed
The goals of the Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS) are well-meaning, and so are the farmers involved in producing corn-based ethanol.

But the damage caused by unsustainable ethanol mandates is so significant and widespread that environmental groups, restaurant and grocer associations, automobile manufacturers, and producers of poultry, pork and beef are just a few of the groups that have joined the oil and natural gas industry in speaking out.

On cyber bullying and censorship
People identify themselves with circles of connections. Are you a cat person or a dog person? Are you an IU fan or a Purdue fan? Save the Train or Pull the Rails and Build the Trails?

The latter circles are the ones I want to focus on for today. Time has a funny way of changing things. Paint fades. Sidewalks wear down. Technology changes. Hairlines recede and skin wrinkles. Roads get wider and traffic gets heavier. Attitudes and perspectives change.

Governor address healthcare
Fellow Hoosiers,

As I've traveled across Indiana these past weeks, many of you have asked me about the federal health care debate. You want to know how legislation may affect us, especially those who rely on Medicaid, our HIP 2.0 program or the federal insurance exchange. You've asked about the potential gaps that could be created by reduced federal funding.

Upset by photo
I enjoy the Times but was appalled and extremely disappointed that you made the decision to run a large color photo of the disgrace in last year's Sheridan parade.

We need civility
It's time to stop the verbal hate remarks toward our president, his family and his administration. It's time to stop the hate rallies in cities by people who oppose the election of our current president.

Thank you for support
The Noblesville Lions Club would like to thank our loyal customers for supporting our recent Pork Chop BBQ and Pancake Breakfast. We would also like to thank all the businesses that purchased tent ads and the businesses and individuals that donated items for our successful silent auction. This is our major fund raiser and allows us to help many groups and individuals.

Cleanup kudos
This past weekend, a large branch fell from one of our trees and was cut up for disposal along with some shrubbery and wood debris. Our curb area was completely filled with this material.

Cheers to Noblesville
I would like to share a story that took place over the course of a couple of days last week that involved a few extraordinary people in your community.
