Three times is charm for our 2018 Miss Hamilton County 4-H Fair Queen Megan Wiley.

While the 4-H Fair officially opens on Thursday, 4-H Queen Megan Wiley has already began her queen duties, awarding grand champion and blue ribbons at Monday’s 4-H Dog Obedience Contest. Wiley, along with members of her court, presented the contest awards in the Show Arena, which filled with 4-H’ers and their families.

Giving out ribbons to 4-H’ers isn’t new to Wiley, who in 2016 earned first runner-up on the Queen’s Court.

“This is my third time competing,” she told me on Friday night as she was receiving congratulatory hugs from friends and family, and the 11 other contestants.

“I was on court once (in 2016), and I wasn’t again (in 2017), and it’s taught me to be strong, and keep going, keep pushing, and always do your hardest,” said the green-eyed, red-haired 19-year-old, who stands 5-6 inches and is a member of the Giddy-Up-Gang 4-H Club.

  • 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."

    Noblesville Schools announced they are seeking to expand their current operating referendum by asking residents to vote on a proposal on the Nov. 6, ballot.

    The new referendum would replace the existing one passed in 2016 and would provide funding through 2026. 

    The expanded referendum would provide Noblesville Schools with increased funding for school safety, mental health and recruiting/retaining top teaching staff. The current operating referendum tax rate is 18.9 cents and the proposed referendum would replace the 18.9 cents rate with a new rate of 37 cents.

    “The referendum we passed in 2016 was about maintaining the status quo of our staffing, programming and services, and was a 10.5 percent reduction in the tax rate,” said Dr. Beth Niedermeyer, superintendent of Noblesville Schools. “This referendum is asking the community to support an increase in funding so we can address school safety and mental health enhancements, as well as teacher recruiting/retention needs.” 

  • Noblesville announces Capital Improvement Plan for upcoming projects
    7/18/2018 The City of Noblesville announced its Capital Improvement Plan for 2018-2023 projects today to relieve traffic congestion, improve connectivity via roads and trails, introduce multi-family apartments to downtown, and address the needs of the police department.

    The Noblesville NOW Capital Improvement Plan unveiled 10 top-priority projects that span the entire community – including Olio Road and Pleasant Street improvements, a downtown parking garage and a new police headquarters. Each project achieves at least two of Noblesville Mayor John Ditslear’s objectives for 2018-2020 – strengthening infrastructure, creating greater economic development, enhancing public safety, improving connectivity and expanding the downtown area.

    “The time is now to address these critical projects to better manage our growth as a thriving city while protecting the small-town feel that is beloved by our residents and visitors,” said Ditslear. “I look forward to leading this effort and working with our Common Council to ensure we are acting in the best interests of our taxpayers and moving our city forward to meet our goals and objectives.”
  • 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.

  • Daly finishes 13th in Toronto
    7/15/2018 

    TORONTO — After being announced on Tuesday as Harding Racing’s driver for Sunday’s Honda Indy Toronto, Noblesville native Conor Daly recorded Harding Racing’s best finish of the season with a 13th place result on the streets of Toronto.

    Daly started in the 11th position but lost a few spots on the start and fell to 14th at the end of the first lap. After he fell four more positions on Lap, Daly started his climb back through the field during the pit stop cycle and also thanks to a little bit of chaos.

    A full course yellow was called on Lap 28 for Ryan Hunter-Reay’s stalled car and several cars hadn’t pitted yet. Because the pits are closed when a caution comes out, those cars can’t take advantage of pitting immediately and fall to the rear of the field. That shuffle elevated Daly from 16th to 10th.

    But the chaos didn’t end there.

    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.
  • 7/11/2018 

    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.

  • 7/15/2018 

    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.

  • 7/15/2018 The 2018 fair season is here, offering a variety of fun-filled activities for the whole family. Whether visiting for the food, livestock competitions or 4-H displays, check out the Hamilton County Fair July 19-23 for a great time.

7/17/2018
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. 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.
