Hamilton County Commissioners have hamstringed a county council candidate by prohibiting political signs to be placed on road and street right of ways.
Rick Sharp, Carmel, a candidate for Hamilton County Council District 4, makes the claim in a lawsuit filed Tuesday in Superior Court.
Sharp maintains an ordinance prohibiting signs in right of ways, adopted Feb. 12, was passed to benefit candidates, who have greater name recognition and are favored by the county commissioners.
“I believe it was done in an attempt to hold down lesser financed candidates in favor of other candidates who are better financed, and favored by the commissioners,” Sharp said.
The rule attaches a $500 fine for placing signs along county road right of ways. It is not limited to political signs.
“For him to claim that is laughable,” said Hamilton County Commissioner Mark Heirbrandt. “This was a public safety issue because signs have become a distraction for drivers.”

  • 99.5 ZPL, Noblesville Parks partner to bring Concerts at the Commons Series
    2/22/2018 The Noblesville Parks and Recreation Department announces Concerts at the Commons line up and new partnership with local radio station 99.5 ZPL to bring regional and local bands to the First Merchants Pavilion stage at Federal Hill Commons.
    Concerts at the Commons will take place on five Saturday nights throughout the summer with each show starting at 7 p.m.
    “With the success of last year’s concerts and events, we are expanding our free shows this year, to give the community more opportunities to enjoy Federal Hill Commons throughout the summer. We are excited to welcome some new bands to Noblesville, along with the return of our more popular acts from last year,” said Brandon Bennett, Noblesville Parks director.
  • 2/21/2018 A single vehicle crash overnight in southern Hamilton County left one person with serious injuries.
    Hamilton County Sheriff’s Office deputies were dispatched to a crash on 111th Street near Cornell Drive shortly after 11 p.m. Tuesday.
    Investigators from the Sheriff’s Office Crash Team reported a black 2012 Hyundai Santa Fe was eastbound on 111th Street approaching Cornell when it ran off the pavement, striking a culvert and then a tree on the right side of the road.
  • 2/20/2018 CARMEL — Police in Carmel have arrested two juveniles in connection with social media threats made against Carmel High School.
    The juveniles, identified as Carmel High School students, were arrested for felony intimidation and taken to the Hamilton County Juvenile Detention Center.
    The Times’ newsgathering partner WTHR reports the threats surfaced last week after 17 people were shot and killed at a high school in Florida. Police and school administrators reassured students and their parents that they had investigated the threats.
    Security plans will remain in place at Carmel High School on Tuesday with increased police protocol, though police say evidence shows the social media threats allegedly made by the students "were fabricated by both juveniles and they had no means to carry out the threats."
  • Harlem Wizards rock The Mill
    2/22/2018 

    Ferocious dunks, acrobatic alley-oops, trick shots, wedgies, body slams and not a lick of defense – clearly it was not Noblesville coach Brian McCauley’s boys nor coach Donna Buckley’s girls taking the floor on Wednesday night at The Mill.

    No, instead it was another entertaining showing from the world-famous Harlem Wizards.

    The Wizards, a comedic but uber-talented traveling basketball troupe, played a game against a team of Noblesville Schools’ principals, assistant principals and teachers coached by Superintendent Beth Niedermeyer. Proceeds from the game went to the Noblesville Schools Education Foundation (NSEF).

    “The Education Foundation is the nonprofit that supports the entire school district,” said NSEF Executive Director Adriann Young. “So we do scholarships, education grants, all sorts of things to really help the school district be successful.”

    Raising funds, along with alley-oops, is what the Wizards do best. The team has been traveling the country since 1962, putting on fundraising events for schools and nonprofit organizations. According to the group’s website, its teams played in more than 400 communities and raised more than 2 million dollars just last year.

  • 2/21/2018 The Indiana High School Athletic Association has suspended eight Hamilton County basketball players for a violation of rules. 

    Six players from Noblesville and two from Hamilton Heights recently played in basketball games at the Noblesville Boys & Girls Club. According to IHSAA by-law 15-1.2a, athletes aren’t allowed to participate in “any organized non-school sports competition during the season, or at any time prior to the conclusion of the student’s participation in the IHSAA Tournament Series.” 

    IHSAA Sports Information Director Jason Wille said a seventh Noblesville player has been removed from the program by the school. “It’s my understanding,” Wille said, “that the seventh player had been doing this in previous years as well.” 
  • Guerin looking for new girls basketball coach
    2/21/2018 

    Guerin Catholic is looking for a new varsity girls basketball coach. 

    Matt Lane, the school’s athletic director, confirmed Wednesday that Dave Roth won’t return as the Lady Golden Eagles’ head coach next season and that “the position is open and posted.”

    Roth led Guerin to a 6-18 record this season, which included a first-round win over Brebeuf Jesuit Preparatory in their Class 3A sectional. In two seasons at Guerin, Roth guided the Golden Eagles to a 13-36 record. 

  • Mark F. Uchida IV
    2/22/2018 Mark F. Uchida IV, 52, of Noblesville, passed away Tuesday, Feb. 20, 2018 at home.
    He was born Jan. 7, 1966, to Mark Frederick and Rita (Munday) Uchida III in Urbana, Ill.
  • 2/22/2018 King Raymond Hampton (aka Raymond, Raymie, Ray) left this earthly life for his new life with Jesus Christ his Lord and Savior during the evening hours of Feb. 12, 2018. He was 89 years old.
    He was born in Bellefonte, Pa., July 13, 1928.
  • 2/21/2018 Roxanne J. (Roxie) Apley of Sheridan passed away in the comfort of her home Feb. 15th 2018 surrounded by loved ones.
    She was born at Witham Memorial Hospital in Lebanon Oct. 18, 1951 to Elmer V. Sneath and Florence B. Montgomery Sneath.
  • 2/21/2018 As the primary election approaches I feel it’s important for the voter to become familiar with some of the insider issues that may affect your voting pattern and specifically when considering incumbents and Township Government.
    Today I read that Pike Township in Marion County has a budget approaching $40 million and the Trustee is paid approximately $94,000 per year. Wow!
    The Pike Township board members are paid $5400 per year as per their published report printed in the Indianapolis Star Feb. 19, 2018.
    I am a past member of the Noblesville Township Board and have some knowledge of the requirements including the dedicated time required to attend meetings and preform these required statutory board duties.
  • 2/7/2018 Tri Kappa of Noblesville would like to say THANK YOU to the CITIZENS OF NOBLESVILLE and beyond for your generous donations to the 2017 Red Stocking Fund. You helped us surpass our goal of $10,000.00. We raised $13,709.00 for the Annual Tri Kappa Red Stocking Fund. 100% of the money donated will be distributed to the school children of Noblesville through the Noblesville Township Trustee’s Office and Noblesville Schools. Since 2006, the Community of Noblesville has raised over $147,000.00 through this fundraiser. 
  • 1/17/2018 “An informed citizenry is at the heart of a dynamic democracy,” wrote Thomas Jefferson.
    Like it or not, journalists do the lion-share of reporting to Americans as to what its government, be it national, state, or local, is doing or considering.
    So during a time when we can choose from a multitude of news outlets, it’s important that we understand basic principles of journalism – independence, accuracy, fairness, the separation of opinion from news reporting.
    That education should start no later than high school with students learning the responsibilities that come with the freedom of speech and freedom of the press guaranteed by the First Amendment.
  • Lions dodgeball needs your help
    2/22/2018 Noblesville Lions Club’s Dave Marsh has been working on a new dodgeball fundraiser for months, and he personally has put in more than 200 hours, used three reams of copy paper, logged 100 miles of travel and sent out more than 200 emails. 
    Club members have recruited sponsors and teams and have signed up to work concessions, to stage teams, to keep time and scores, to mark off courts, to set up divider nets and to post sponsor signage.
    Everything is set to be in place. But the Lions’ first attempt at a new fundraiser “is in some trouble.”
    While the Lions have brought in more than $6,000 in sponsors and have a potentially great event planned, the dodgeball tournament is only 16 days away, and 10 teams are still needed to fill the 16-team field for the tournament.
  • 2/22/2018 Last week I had a young patient ask me what the difference is between an MRI and a CT scan. Not long after that, I noticed an error in a newspaper article that mixed up the two technologies.
    Radiologic imaging of the human body has revolutionized the diagnostic accuracy of physicians. However, it has also had the negative effect of reducing our reliance on a good medical history and physical examination.
    There is also a real concern about patients receiving too much radiation over their lifetimes as a result of having too many CT scans (more below). This is particularly concerning in children who may receive numerous scans over their lifetimes that may increase their risk of cancer.
    We are the only country in the world where a CT and/or MRI scanner is in the neighborhood of virtually every citizen. While this is convenient, it leads to over-utilization of these very expensive and sometimes unnecessary technologies.
  • On the Importance of Becoming a Coffee Drinker
    2/22/2018 I’ve been working up to it for two months, and I’m pleased to announce that today, I successfully finished my first cup of coffee! Without sugar! I think I’m finally a grown up.
    I’ve always felt like I was missing out by not drinking coffee, and I finally grew weary of rejecting the cups offered to me, so I set out on a mission to acquire the taste.
    If one wants to achieve a goal, it is important to equip oneself with the proper tools. So, I went to Target and picked up a coffee maker, three types of coffee, and various flavored creamers. Since the goal was to drink coffee whenever it is offered to me by others, I didn’t want to become dependent on certain flavors. But it was important to have a palatable starting point.
    Unfortunately, I got completely hooked on iced coffee with loads of cream and sweetener, which sort of defeated the purpose. However, the coffee flavor must have come through because today was the day!

2/20/2018
Warner Sallman is an American born artist who was born in the late 19th century. He devoted much of his life to creating religious images that focused on Jesus Christ. Each of Sallman’s pieces is meant to provide a depth of religious value and bring a sense hope and comfort to the viewer. His most famous work is “The Head of Christ”, which he completed in 1941. The timing of this piece could not have been better as the world was in the early stages of World War II, and the U.S. would soon be entering the fight. This work would be printed in pocket size photos and handed out to the soldiers being shipped off to war to provide comfort and inspiration to many. There is a good chance that you have seen this picture as it has been printed hundreds of millions of times. If you would like to see “The Head of Christ” and many more of Warner Sallman's original works then you can visit us at the Scheierman Gallery, located on Anderson University’s campus in Anderson, Indiana. We are open Tuesdays and Fridays from 1-4 p.m. or you can make an appointment to visit.
