The first of many weekend meals will be sent home to approximately 200 Noblesville children in need this weekend.
Kristina Trusty, Hinkle Creek kindergarten teacher, started the Noblesville Schools Meal Pack Program to will provide meals to children every weekend of every month. These meals will have a variety of items that will be consistent and child friendly.
Trusty heard of other meal pack programs in the area and realized Noblesville could benefit from a similar program. The Hamilton County Harvest Food Bank has been mentoring and providing advice to Trusty throughout the process.
“When it was brought to my attention that surrounding areas were putting meal programs in place for children with food insecurities at home,” Trusty said. “I knew that this was something that Noblesville children would benefit from.”
According to the United States Department of Agriculture Economic Research Service, 12.3 percent of households were food insecure in 2016.
Elementary students were recently sent home with a letter asking their parents to respond if they would like their children to be included in this free of charge program.

  • 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."
  • Noblesville lacrosse ready for first varsity club season
    2/24/2018 

    For the first time since its inception almost two decades of existence, lacrosse will be recognized as a varsity club sport by Noblesville High School when the Millers lace up in early March. 

    The move has been on the club board’s agenda for several years, and its impact could help boost a sport that has done well in the city. 

    “We’re still trying to work on building a program and not just a team,” said boys varsity coach Kyle Kreutzinger. “I think that with the help of the athletic department it’ll be that much easier to be able to build.” 

    The most important — at least for the coaches — new advantage is the club’s access to the high school’s trainers.

  • Swim State Finals prelims
    2/24/2018 The Greyhounds started their quest for a fourth straight IHSAA Boys Swimming and Diving State Championship in style Friday night at the Natatorium at IUPUI. 

    Carmel's Wyatt Davis, Stefano Batista, Drew Kibler and Andrew Couchon began the preliminaries with a new state-record (1:28.00) in the 200 medley relay. The time, which is the No. 2 all-time mark in the nation (1:27.74), was just under the state record that Zionsville set last year. 

    Kibler did set a new national record in the 50 freestyle (19.38) and is seeded first in today’s finals. Couchon (20.55) and Westfield’s Chris Kenney (20.86) both advanced to the final heat, too, with fifth and sixth-place finishes, respectively. Jared Holder, the lone swimmer from Hamilton Heights, finished in a three-way tie for 13th (21.19) and will advance to the consolation heat for the first time. 
  • State Finals' rivalries set to be renewed
    2/23/2018 Jared Holder was surprised he qualified for the IHSAA Boys Swimming State Finals last season. This year, the Hamilton Heights junior expected he’d make it. 

    Holder earned his place at the 2018 State Finals with state times in the 50 freestyle (21.27) and the 100 backstroke (49.98) — both school records. He’ll race in Friday’s preliminaries at the Natatorium at IUPUI looking to advance to Saturday’s finals for the first time. The last remaining Husky swimmer, Holder’s also racing for more than just himself. 

    “It’s such an honor to represent the school and the community,” Holder said. “I’m not just representing myself — I’m representing something much bigger.”

    Holder will face stiff — although familiar — competition in both of his events. 
  • 2/24/2018 Glenda Darlene Dillinger, 64, of Noblesville, passed away Sunday, Feb. 18, 2018 at Riverview Health.
    She was born Aug. 16, 1953, to Glenn and Imagene (Welch) Boram in Palatka, Fla.
  • Craig Alan Johnson
    2/24/2018 Craig Alan Johnson, age 51, of Cicero, passed away Jan. 20, 2018, at his Cicero residence.
    He was born Dec. 8, 1966, at Ogallala, Neb., to John Herbertand Janet Louise (Grubaugh) Johnson.
  • 2/24/2018 Aline Philomena Swaim, age 76, of Cicero, passed away Feb. 23, 2018, with her family at her side.
    She was born Jan. 9, 1942, at Chicago, to Martin and Helen (Bourdon) Rausch.
  • 2/23/2018 White River Township would like to clarify our past, current and future position of emergency services with Cicero Fire Department (CFD).
    Over the last 30 years, CFD has provided ambulance service to White River residents in the form of a memorandum of understanding and received compensation for services rendered. The only discussion with Cicero was in August 2017 when it was stated that there would need to be an increase in compensation paid by White River for ambulance services provided by Cicero. Budgets for 2018 must be received to the county and state officials by July 31st each year and White River officials knew this would be a problem to make changes (increases) in their budget. While White River is aware of rising costs to healthcare, the timing of this discussion made it impossible to make budgetary changes with the Department of Local Government Finance (DLGF). To be proactive with this potential rise in ambulatory costs, our officials made requests to Cicero on September 20, 2017 for data to help us better evaluate our current position and be able to make an educated response for increasing this budget.
  • 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. 
  • Diners loved The Hamilton
    2/24/2018 I remember one time asking The Hamilton Restaurant owner Vanita Clements what makes her smile, to which her reply was “All of my wonderful customers.”
    Clements and husband chef Clyde Worley have owned and operated the downtown Noblesville restaurant for 16 years. Their restaurant will close at the end of business today.
    It was a sad day for their customers when the couple announced on Feb. 8 that they would retire, and their wonderful eatery would close. 
    The Hamilton is known for its delicious food, dishes you couldn’t find elsewhere, and quiet atmosphere, a place you could go and talk. A place where you could celebrate milestones. And a place where you could always find Vanita Clements.
    At lunch on Friday, Clements was way busy attending her customers, with a sort of smile on her face, telling me that she couldn’t talk. Too busy. And she didn’t want an article in the newspaper today because she said, “I can’t accommodate anybody else. I’m booked up,” Clements said. “And everybody wants two pieces of Hummingbird Cake to go. All I do is sit back there and bake. I’m just totally overwhelmed.”
  • 2/24/2018 Dang. People, myself included are full of fear. Either we are afraid to change, or we are afraid that things are not changing. Fact of the matter is that I find myself on both sides of the fear argument. The fights over gun control, racism, sexism, politicalism, religionists (yes, I made the last two words up but you know what I mean) have gotten out of control, each side yelling louder than the other. Each demanding to be right, like there is a prize. Each drawing lines in the sand like it won’t collapse in the middle. We are a pitiful bunch. Thank goodness that God loves us, through continued love, grace and mercy. This week I have asked myself, “What is saving your life?” I believe reading is a large part of what is saving my life these days. Not just the bible, though there is that, but also various memes that pop up on social media, and also my stack of books in various stages of being read, read and not yet read, along with blogs, and various websites. Books are my friends.
  • Reunion concert to benefit guitarist
    2/23/2018 Rick Benick was just a little kid when he saw Elvis Presley and The Beatles appear on “The Ed Sullivan Show.”
    But he knew he wanted to be a guitar player and perform on stage some day.
    He got his first electric“Truetone” guitar from Western Auto in 1964, when he was 12. 
    Benick would play guitar with friends at his house. During junior high, he played gigs in his school cafeteria.
    He took guitar lessons but didn’t like them, so he quit. But he kept teaching himself.
    “I didn’t know I was good until people started telling me I was good,” said Benick, 66, Noblesville, who went on to become nationally known as one of the best guitarists in the business, playing for Roadmaster, Henry Lee Summer, Mitch Ryder and The Alligator Brothers.
    For fans, it will be like stepping back in time this Sunday as he gathers with old band members for “Rick Benick: A Benefit Concert,” for which he will be the benefactor. In late 2017, Benick was diagnosed with leukemia.

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.
