New Year, New Session
With a new year comes a new legislative session. The 120th Indiana General Assembly is already underway, and committee meetings will be starting very soon. This session will be a busy and exciting one, and many of the topics on the House Republican agenda will directly impact members within our community. In order for me to best represent you, we need to communicate with each other and stay engaged.

A new opportunity to serve Hamilton County
Last week, I officially announced I will not be seeking re-election to the Indiana General Assembly. Although the 2018 legislative session will be my last representing House District 29 at the Statehouse, I hope to continue serving Noblesville as the County Clerk.

It's Christmas time in our city
The Hamilton County Courthouse is beautifully lit, the Christmas tree is up, and Santa made a special appearance for all of the good little boys and girls at this year's holiday parade. It's officially Christmas time in our city, where a variety of holiday events will be occurring throughout December, when the air is filled with cheer.

Fostering hope for future generations
Indiana's escalating opioid epidemic is significantly impacting the state's most vulnerable. Thousands of children, by no fault of their own, are victims of this crisis. As opioid abuse rises, so does the number of kids in the foster care system. According to the Department of Child Services, the number of children in out-of-home care jumped from 13,811 in September 2015, to 17,214 just two years later. With the demand for foster families in Indiana reaching an all-time high, we need to find ways to help these children in need.

Sharing our blessings with others
This week, many will be gathering with family and friends to give thanks. As my husband, Perry, and I prepare to come together with those we love, it's hard not to also think about those we have lost, like our dear friend Don Jellison. Don was very special, and his positive impact on Noblesville will be felt for years to come. As we count our blessings this Thanksgiving, let's work to honor those we have loved and lost, by helping others in our community who are in need.

Thank you, veterans
On Saturday, Nov. 11, we have the opportunity to formally honor our veterans. From parades to wreath-laying ceremonies and words of gratitude on social media, let's come together as a community to thank the thousands who have served and those who are currently serving our nation.

Noblesville will host a Veterans Day ceremony at 11 a.m. on Saturday, Nov. 11, at the Courthouse Square. At noon on Saturday, there will be a Veterans Day Parade at the conclusion of a service held in downtown Indianapolis. More than 80 units will be marching from Michigan and Pennsylvania streets, moving south on Pennsylvania to New York Street, west to Meridian Street, and concluding at North Street.

Free help filing the FAFSA form
The single most important form for helping students receive money to go to college is the Free Application for Federal Student Aid form. The FAFSA form is required for students, regardless of family income, to be considered for federal and state grants, scholarships and student loans at most colleges, universities and vocational/technical schools nationwide.

A scary, yet safe, Halloween
Pint-sized ghosts, zombies, princesses and action heroes will soon be invading Noblesville. With Halloween approaching, let's remember to stay safe and follow these tips provided by the Indiana State Police as we have some scary fun.

When it comes to costumes, remember length is important to prevent trips and falls. Using make-up instead of a mask could help prevent the obstruction of vision. Scraped knees and elbows, especially with the younger children, can really spoil a good time. To help motorists spot trick-or-treaters, consider wearing light colors or reflective tape on costumes.
