In the exhibit hall at the Hamilton County 4-H Fairgrounds, members control their robot creations to move objects and solve problems. Not for a ribbon, a trophy or competition, but to simply do it
Lucky Robots is the robotics 4-H club. In it, members use Lego Mindstorms projects to learn more about programming, robotics and engineering. It's a 4-H Spark Club, which is a short-term experience meant to "spark" interest in a new topic.
The "demo" team of the club demonstrated their knowledge of robots and the projects they've created on Thursday at the 4-H fair.
Lego Mindstorms are Lego sets that contain a computer system that can be built around to control Lego to meet certain objectives and solve problems. The club currently works with the EV3 model, which is the newest generation of the Lego Mindstorms.

  • 7/20/2019 The Times- The chamber luncheon on August 8, 2019 will include a tour of the Duke Energy Power Station.
    The Noblesville Station was built in 1950 and began as a coal-fired plant, but was late transformed to run on natural gas in 2003 to increase efficiency. This change saw the plant go from creating 90 megawatts to approximately 300 megawatts of electricity.

    Painter is on a short list compiled by SI.com of coaches who will be the next to win his first national championship.

  • 7/18/2019 Dear Editor,
    U.S. Places First Men on the MOON. Those of us old enough to remember this probably also remember exactly where we were as we watched history unfold on television.
    I was fortunate in that I had a fairly different perspective. While in the Army, I served as Exec. Officer for US Army Cape Kennedy Outport (USACKO) from June, 1968 to March, 1969. We ran the military (Cape Kennedy) side of Port Canaveral. From our vantage point of loading or off-loading ships, we were “up close and personal” with many rocket and missile launchings - including the Apollo series. Apollo was a granddaddy of all rockets. When it ignited, we were close enough that the pulsations would literally make our ribs vibrate in the same rhythm (as the pulsations) and our hearts would beat wildly. It was like a drug made from noise and concussion.
  • 5/8/2019 Dear Editor,
    As a former US Marine Veteran and FBI Special Agent for 28 years and Father of 4 children, all Purdue Graduates, I have witnessed great sacrifice and dedication by Federal Employee.
    Federal employees serve and protect us every day at every level across the country and in our community. At no time was this more evident than during the 35-day partial government shutdown earlier this year. 
    From ensuring safe air travel to regulating new medicines to maintaining a safe food supply to processing Social Security checks, civil servants are everywhere, yet invisibly so. And, contrary to popular belief, 85 percent of the federal workforce is located outside of Washington, DC. 
    When natural disasters strike, they provide relief and help us rebuild. When mass shootings take place, they enter harm's way and care for the wounded. And, when once-eradicated viruses reappear, they investigate public health crises. Whether they are in the public eye or active behind the scenes, civil servants take pride in working for something bigger than themselves. 
  • 5/8/2019 Dear Editor,
    Writer Ginger Claremohr wrote an excellent article “To vaccinate or not to vaccinate” depicting the situation of parents today when it comes to their children’s future health by vaccinating. It seems the medical industry tries to make children more perfect by creating vaccinations to add to their bodies.
    My grandfather who was born in the 1880’s said the less you inject into your body the healthier you will be. There are 70 doses of 16 vaccinations imposed on our children today. As a child I had only two vaccinations; the polio vaccine and the small pox. My generation became naturally immune to all childhood diseases by either being exposed or enduring the disease. This natural immunity is with my generation today and I believe we should go back to natural immunity for all children.
  • 7/20/2019 I was sitting on our back porch, enjoying my favorite libation, when I saw this headline:
    MOSQUITOES PREFER BEER DRINKERS
    My initial reaction was to brush it off, just like I did the little pests that were at that very moment enjoying my Type O positive. The article had already gone viral. My guess is that good ol’ boys in places like Pine Bluff, Arkansas, got the bad news while standing around their favorite watering hole where, unfortunately, there is a lot of standing water. The guys were probably a little red-faced that they had never figured out this beer/mosquito connection. Of course, they were also red-faced before they found out about this beer/mosquito connection.
  • 7/20/2019 Yesterday, I returned with my daughter, from a two week vacation in France. The first week was spent hiking in the south of France, over the river and through gorges, and forests with our trusty donkey, LuLu, short for Lutine. The temperatures and humidity rivaled central Indiana. We had no idea what we were in for when we signed up for this unguided, “free” hike. Thankfully between the two of us, we shared many memorable moments, highs and lows, never got truly lost, and we learned a few things about each other. By the end of each day, I was ready to quit. After taking a tumble down a rocky and steep hill, enduring near heat exhaustion, and questioning the accuracy of timelines and descriptions of our daily treks, the only thing that kept me going was the encouragement of my daughter Sarah, and the promise of an adult beverage at the day’s end. 
    The phrases, “One day at a time,” and, “it could have been worse,” became our mantras. 
  • Snow cones, slushies, fans help beat heat at 4-H Fair
    7/19/2019 Standing in front of a misting fan at the Hamilton County 4-H Fair offers brief relief for the heat.
    As does sampling a snow cone at the Mudsockers 4-H Club’s food booth. And stepping inside the air-conditioned llama barn to watch the llama obstacle course.
    We love the county 4-H Fair. We prefer the heat, to rain.
    And every July during 4-H Fair time, we expect hot weather. 
    The 4-H Fairgrounds prepares for it, too, as workers bring out the giant fans for the animal barns and the misting fans for fairgoers to enjoy. This year, it’s particularly dangerous heat. The National Weather Service issued an Excessive Heat Warning that began Thursday morning and remains in effect until 8 p.m. on Sunday.
    While all activities are still on as scheduled for the 4-H Fair, the Hamilton County Purdue Extension Service is making sure precautions are being taken.

This Week's Events

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. We look forward to seeing you! If you have any questions please feel free to contact us.
