It’s opening day of the 80th Hamilton County 4-H Fair.

While there isn’t a special celebration to commemorate the milestone, I always love the opportunity to talk about our wonderful 4-H Fair. 4-H’ers checked in their farm animals all day Wednesday, so the Fairgrounds today smells of horses, pigs and cows, like going to the farm.

And I also love the smell of the delicious foods -- the ribeye, the lamb burgers and the rabbit brats -- cooking on the barbecue grills at the Producer’s Tent.

And while I've said before that I look forward to the Fair food, I think everyone else does, too.

A favorite of many Fair goers is the grilled cheese sandwich, available with a choice of American cheese on white bread or Swiss cheese on rye bread. The Hamilton Heights Husky 4-H’ers make and serve the grilled cheese as a fundraiser. They start warming up the griddles this morning, with grilled cheese being served 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. today in the Producer’s Tent near the Small Animal Barn, and again on Friday.

  • Our Lady of Grace becomes first Catholic school in state to receive STEM certification
    7/18/2018 

    The Indiana Department of Education has named Our Lady of Grace Catholic School (OLGCS) a 2018 fully certified STEM school.

    OLGCS joins 60 schools state-wide, is the first Catholic school in the state, the first preschool through eighth-grade school and the first Hamilton County school to become STEM certified. 

    "A quality education begins with amazing educators and excellent material," said Dr. Jennifer McCormick, Indiana Superintendent of Public Instruction "Materials rooted in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics help prepare our students for a successful life beyond high school. We are grateful for their passion and dedication."

    OLCGS was chosen based on our commitment to teaching the STEM disciplines. The school is unique as it incorporates religion and art into its program, "STREAM."

  • OUT IN THE OPEN- Metal military monsters are great for storage
    7/19/2018 I’d be willing to bet that at least half of our readership has one sitting in the garage, shed, barn or storage unit right now. It’s probably sitting there forlornly gathering cobwebs, waiting patiently for the day it is hauled out to take center stage in a grand and glorious adventure. 

    Or, it might be sitting there like a ticking time bomb, full of stink bait or a forgotten, badly-tanned squirrel tail, waiting for the unfortunate soul who happens to open its airtight lid, accidentally releasing the horrors within. In either case, the nondescript rectangle box might be one of the most overlooked outdoor accessories in spite of being one of the most useful.

    I’m talking about the humble ammo can.

    I never really stopped to think about the somewhat ungainly but supremely useful containers until I recently ran across a webpage that explained the history behind these olive-drab metal military monsters.
  • Daly tests at Mid-Ohio
    7/18/2018 LEXINGTON, Ohio — Noblesville native Conor Daly drove for Harding Racing in the recent Verizon IndyCar Series race on the streets of Toronto, the Honda Indy Toronto and finished 13th. 

    On Tuesday, just days after scoring the teams’ best result of the year, Daly tested in the morning session at the Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course, less than two weeks before the Honda Indy 200 on July 29, in a continuing evaluation of the car and the team’s performance and development.

    “It was OK so far,” said Daly. “I think the track was pretty icy this morning so we couldn’t really get to running again until 9:30 but we’ve only run two sets of tires. We didn’t get a lot in yet but we want to make some big, swinging changes. So we had to stop early before lunch just to try to get back to the (setup) pad and take a big swing at it because that’s what we’re here to do is take big swings at it technically.”

    Harding Racing President Brian Barnhart looked at the test session as a continuation of the Toronto weekend and saw the test as an evaluation of what the team will do for Mid-Ohio in due course. 
  • Noblesville's Tyler places 11th at U20 championships in Finland
    7/15/2018 

    An incredible experience came to an end for one Noblesville High School student Sunday.

    Shelby Tyler, who will be a senior this school year, finished in 11th place Sunday in the Women’s High Jump competition at the IAAF World U20 Championships Finals in Tampere, Finland.

    Tyler cleared 1.75m, and 1.80m, but couldn’t hurdle 1.84m.

    The Top 3 all cleared 1.90m and the winner cleared 1.92. All of them were 19 years old.

    Karyna Taranda of Belarus ultimately came away with the title, setting a PB of 1.92m. Maria Fernanda Murillo of Colombia, meanwhile, took the bronze medal behind Ireland’s Sommer Lecky, both ending with bests of 1.90m.

  • 7/19/2018 Dale B. Nightenhelser, 76, of Atlanta, Indiana, passed away Tuesday, July 17, 2018, at Riverview Health in Noblesville.

    Dear Editor, 

    And to the people of Noblesville, Fishers, towns of Hamilton County, Tipton, Tipton County, Indianapolis, Marion County and the people of Indiana:

    The board and volunteers of the Indiana Transportation Museum would like to express our deepest gratitude to all of you for your support, including our last day at Forest Park in Noblesville. 

    For more than 52 years the museum has been a part of Forest Park. With our train rides, we gave classes on the history of Indiana rail transportation to school children in Noblesville and neighboring communities.

    Our volunteers also learned with our community. Many adult and young teenage volunteers learned about working on our historic rail equipment keeping it all running safely. We are proud of all our volunteers who learned at ITM, then went on to became new railroaders for Norfolk Southern, CSX and Burlington Northern railroads. 

  • 7/17/2018 Dear Editor, 

    and dear House Speaker Brian Bosma (R-Indianapolis): 

    The Hoosier State Press Association thanks you for supporting S.E.A. 392. The bill signed into law on March 21, by Gov. Eric Holcomb contains language that guarantees Hoosiers can obtain electronic records (such as Word documents, Excel spreadsheets, or Adobe pdfs) in that format from state and local government units. The records can be emailed to the requester with no copying fee involved.

    Under the existing Access to Public Records Act, a public official could decide to only provide a printed copy of such a record and require the requester to come to the agency office and pay a copying fee for the record.

    The language giving the public the right to electronic copies is language you helped develop with HSPA in previous legislative sessions.

    Dear Editor,

    “Nearly all men can stand adversity but if you want to test a man’s character, give him power.”
    -Abraham Lincoln

    This quote comes to mind as I watch the drama unfold between the Indiana Transportation Museum (ITM) and the City of Noblesville. We are in the final stages of ITM’s eviction from Forest Park and I’d like to make a couple of comments on the way this episode has been handled.

    This is a real David and Goliath story. However, unlike in the Bible, Goliath will end up winning this battle despite David’s efforts. The City has always held all the cards. It is the landlord, it has seats on the Hoosier Heritage Port Authority, which owns the tracks, and it has the deep pockets and formidable firepower of a taxing authority. The ITM is a non-profit that depends on donations and train fares to pay its bills and is run by volunteers.

    Still, it managed to successfully operate trains in Hamilton County for decades.

  • 7/19/2018 Since I featured cats in a column last month, it only seems fair to devote one to dogs, too.

    If you’re around my age, you may recall Sparky, the Noblesville Fire Department’s Dalmatian. For me, he was one of the highlights of the 1960s Christmas parades, riding on the fire engine with a big, beautiful bow tied around his neck.

    Well, Sparky wasn’t the department’s first dog-in-residence. (In fact, he wasn’t even the first Sparky).

    The earliest reference I found to a canine mascot at the Noblesville Fire Department was a dog named McKinley. McKinley popped up in the July 4, 1902, Hamilton County Ledger because the department hadn’t paid his dog tax.
  • 7/15/2018 

    I’ve been thinking on this for a while, and I invite you to think through it with me.

    I grew up in a strong, evangelical, Christian community, and continued in that faith tradition for most of my adult life. Then I had a major crisis that included my faith. So, I walked away and started over figuring things out for myself.

    For a while now, I have been angry at Christianity. I have been angry at all churches regardless of denomination. I have been angry at the way mankind mutilated the message of Jesus and used it as a tool of oppression. I would have said “to hell” with it all, except I wasn’t sure anymore whether hell was real.

    One thing I didn’t expect is that my crisis would affect my political points of view. But when you set out to “look at everything with new eyes,” you have to actually look at everything.

  • 7/15/2018 

    I saw a young athlete two weeks ago who complained of shin pain.

    He had been upping his running mileage; the pain was due to a stress fracture. It is estimated that between five and 30 percent of athletes and military recruits develop a stress fracture each year. Briefhaupt first described the condition in 1855 when examining military recruits.

    Everyone is familiar with bone fractures, especially those that result from acute trauma. These fractures are usually easy for an untrained person to see on an X-ray – the bone looks like a broken stick. Stress fractures, however, can be much more difficult to diagnose.

    Stress fractures result from repeated stress on the bone. This repetitive microtrauma causes disruption of the microscopic structure of the bone over time that eventually exceeds the bone’s ability to heal itself. A tiny crack subsequently develops in the bone that may or may not be obvious on an X-ray. Think of bending a piece of metal over and over; eventually it weakens and breaks.

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. We are closed during university breaks, which can be found on the Anderson University Academic Calendar, with exception to summer break when you can visit by appointment only.
