With hope. Two words that describe the way in which all life should be lived.

In his third book, The Arch, author and Noblesville native Gary Crask takes readers on the life journey of Charlie Wilhelm — a life lived with hope. 
Born at the end of WWI, Charlie lives a happy childhood with his Mama, Papa and younger brother, Teddy, near Vienna, Austria.

What starts as an innocent childhood quickly becomes influenced by the facts of life in the 1930s: polio, family dynamic shifts and the rise of Nazi Germany. Believing that her own family secrets could spell disaster for her eldest child, Charlie’s mother, Emma Wilhelm, gives her son the only gifts she can — hope for safety and a future in America.

  • Come out to Chamber open house Tuesday
    6/17/2018 

    What’s going on at Noblesville Chamber of Commerce? 

    Lots of exciting things, that’s what.

    To begin with, the community is invited to meet the Chamber’s new summer staff, during an open house with free coffee and refreshments, from 9 a.m. to noon Tuesday at the Chamber’s office, 1 Library Plaza, in Noblesville.

    Just more than two years ago, the Chamber moved to shared space at Hamilton East Public Library, and also now shares an office with Hamilton County Leadership Academy. Guests will enter the main library doors and turn night to the Chamber entrance.

    Chamber president Bob DuBois is hoping to see a lot of faces in the community attend the open house, where he’ll introduce the new summer staff, Sarah J. Reilly, communications manager; Tom Marquell, director of business development; and previous high school intern, Ryley Johnson, administrative assistant. Summer salaries are payable from the Chamber’s existing budget, with the vast majority of the money from dues and corporate partnerships.

  • Carmel student wins scholarship at National History Contest
    6/15/2018 

    The Indiana Historical Society (IHS) has announced a Carmel High School student won a collegiate scholarship to the University of Maryland at College Park.

    Olivia Krall received the news while attending the National Contest for the National History Day program in Washington, D.C. 

    The scholarship was the second award of the week for Krall. Each year at the National Contest, officials choose one project per state to be displayed at the Smithsonian National Museum of American History. This year, the honor went to Krall and fellow Carmel High School student Abigael Mullens for their Senior Group Exhibit, "The Nigerian Civil War: The Consequences of Imperialism."

    Krall and Mullens are among 500,000 students globally who took part in the 2018 National History Day program. The students completed projects in one of five categories—documentary, exhibit, paper, performance or website—and then competed in a series of contests beginning at the local level. Less than one percent of projects advanced to the National Contest.

    The IHSBCA No. 2 Fishers Tigers defeated the Cathedral Irish 4-3 at Victory Field on Friday night to claim the school’s first state championship in baseball.

    The Tigers and the Irish were tied at No. 1 in the IHSBCA Preseason Poll, so it was fitting for the two schools to face each other in the championship game.

    The Irish struck first scoring an unearned run in the bottom of the first. After a one-out walk, the Irish runner stole second base, advanced to third on a throwing error from catcher Kiel Brenczewski, and continued home on the same play when centerfielder JJ Woolwine overthrew third base. 
    Like they have done all year, however, the Tigers answered.

  • Hamilton Heights appreciates golf supporters
    6/14/2018 

    The members of the Hamilton Heights Educational Foundation would like to extend their sincere appreciation to all those individuals who helped make this year’s golf outing a wonderful success.  

    Moneys generated through the annual event, now in its 29th year, gives students and teachers a chance to grow and explore beyond traditional boundaries through grant money. 

    “We were pleased with the turnout despite the heat, we avoided the predicted storms,” said Melissa Martin, president, Hamilton Heights Educational Foundation along with the help of the entire board, has organized the annual event during her seven-year tenure (three as president) with the Foundation. “We are grateful for the dedicated staff at Bear Slide, the opportunity to play on one of the state’s Top 10 golf courses, and for their support of all things Hamilton Heights.”

  • OUT IN THE OPEN- The Sun Isn’t Your Friend
    6/14/2018 While Indiana seems to have more lousy gray days than London, England, old Sol actually does appear periodically in the Hoosier sky as we go forth into the fields to play. However, the friendly sun that shines so benevolently also presents a danger that many outdoors enthusiasts simply ignore: skin damage.

    It has been known for years that excessive exposure to the sun can cause skin damage, which in turn leads to premature aging and possibly even skin cancer. Unfortunately, those of us who frequently run amok in the outdoors often give less than a thought to sun protection even while wearing all sorts of other protective paraphernalia such as life jacket, shooting glasses, helmets and harnesses.

    Much of the problem has to do with attitudes. When Americans flocked to beaches before 1960, being tanned or sunburned was considered dangerous, more so than the communist party and skin cancer was rare. Going back further in history, British books written during the African colonial period frequently worried about the dangers of sun exposure to the point of recommending that colonists wear their pith helmets indoors.

  • 6/14/2018 Dear Editor, 

    I’ve been to the moon. I’ve been burned. But more often I’m honored. I’m your American flag.

    With 13 stars for colonies clamoring for freedom, I was first flown at Fort Stanwix in New York in 1777—and then carried into battle for the first time at Brandywine in Pennsylvania. By war’s end, I was saluted as the emblem of a sovereign nation, new and free. I’m your American flag.

    But challenges lay ahead. With 15 stars and 15 stripes, I survived shock and shell at Fort McHenry in 1814. With the aid of rockets’ red glare and bombs bursting in air, I was spied from afar at dawn’s early light by a patriot poet. I was then celebrated in sight and song by a fledgling nation. I’m your American flag.

    A half century later and with 33 stars and 13 stripes, I was saddened to see our nation divided. Our brothers’ blood was spilled in battle north and south. But by war’s end, Lincoln’s iconic words at Gettysburg prevailed—a unique nation conceived in liberty and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal. But that pledge was yet to be fully fulfilled.

    Dear Editor,

    At 9:06 a.m. on May 25, an armed student entered my son’s classroom in Noblesville and opened fire.

    Amazingly, there were no fatalities.

    However, another student and my son were struck numerous times. Thankfully, both are recovering, but the injured student will have an extended hospital stay. Since that surreal day, there have been so many acts of kindness and so many notes of encouragement and prayers that I couldn’t possibly begin to thank everyone personally.

    Please accept the following thanks and know that every act, every word and every prayer has been deeply appreciated.

  • 5/18/2018 Dear Editor, 

    In the early 2000s, leaders in state government determined that the Indiana Department of Environmental Management should team with businesses to help protect valuable resources. A partnership – instead of strictly a punitive approach – has been successful.

    That is a lesson still being learned in Washington. Although regulatory efforts under the current administration are taking a more thoughtful tactic, one Indiana company is suffering from the actions of the prior regime at the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB).

    Navient, which services 12 million student loan customers, is based in Fishers with additional operations in Muncie. The company was sued by CFPB two days before President Obama left office. Richard Cordray had spent four years investigating Navient, citing it for “systematically and illegally failing borrowers.”

    No evidence to substantiate the claims exists. The company produced 450,000 pages of documents, hundreds of hours of phone recording and more than 30 written reports before charges were filed.

    Barbecue season is in full swing and it’s a good time to review food safety. Food-borne illness is something that almost all of us have experienced at some point in our lives.

    Food-borne illness is defined as more than two people having a similar illness with evidence of food as the source. The overall rate of these illnesses has gone down drastically in the last century with improvements in food handling and sanitation. However, we still hear about illness outbreaks.

    There are approximately 76 million cases of food-related illness in the United States each year. There are also about 325,000 hospitalizations and 5,000 deaths. Underdeveloped countries, as a group, experience about one billion cases annually and four to six million deaths.

    At 3 a.m., in the absence of sleep, I have been lying here reading the Center for Human Rights website. Part of my sleeplessness is due to the fact that my ten and eleven-year-olds are with their dad for a month. In 26 years of being a mom, I can’t begin to add up the number of times I have awakened in the middle of the night, felt a pang of fear, and walked quietly from room to room to check on each of my sleeping children. Not having that ability is new to me.

    I wonder if they are also lying awake, wishing they could crawl into bed with me like they sometimes do. My youngest is prone to nightmares, and will often appear at my bedside, needing to be comforted. Is he having nightmares tonight? I try not to think about it.

    My point here is this...as difficult as it is for our family to experience the ramifications of divorce, I cannot imagine the emotional trauma inflicted on children separated from their parents and held in immigrant detention centers. How great is the fear of moms and dads who are unable to check on their kids at night? How could they even begin to sleep knowing their children are indefinitely in the hands of a government that seemingly hates them?

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.
