I’d like to start this column by thanking the Noblesville Township Trustee. 

The job of elected Township Trustee Tom Kenley is to be a good steward of our township taxpayer dollars and donations. And I think he does a good job.

A lot of nonprofit organizations are vying for grant dollars every year from the Noblesville Township, which has a board made up of three other elected officials, Joe Arrowood, John Davis and Peggy Pfister.
Over the summer, more than 1,000 Noblesville students took advantage of Summer Recreation Camps thanks to the Township’s estimated $25,000 in grant monies. The money was used to hire camp teachers, coaches and leaders, and purchase camp materials and provide camp activities for the student participants in Grades 1-8.

“We received several thank-you emails from parents. That’s kind of nice to get that feedback,” Kenley said.
  • Champion griller, top 4-H’er learns life skills
    8/24/2019 Evelyn Burton grew up a 4-H’er in Howard County, and her parents were both 4-H’ers before that, her mom in Wabash County, and her dad, in Rush County.
    So it was kind of expected that her two sons, Alan and Daniel, would be in 4-H, too.

    “It was never something we even talked about. It was just expected that they would be a part of the 4-H program,” said the Noblesville mom, whose late mother, Rebecca Wilson, was Hamilton County’s Microwave project leader for many years.
    “Fortunately, both of my boys were outgoing, and they both loved it once they got into it. It was never a question or a battle. They just both enjoyed it.”
    Today, Evelyn Burton is thankful for the 4-H program. She said, “I just think it’s one of the best programs for young people.”
  • 8/23/2019 The Hamilton County Council on Alcohol and Other Drugs is a team dedicated to preventing and reducing alcohol and illegal drug use in Hamilton County. Comprised of members spanning a broad cross section of public and private agencies and organizations, the Council meets regularly to provide resources and funding on the topics of alcohol and drugs. The primary goals of the group focus on prevention and education, intervention and treatment, and criminal justice.
    During the recent August meeting, several positive announcements were made by members of the coalition receiving funding and support from the Council.
    The Community Opioid Prevention Effort announced that with the addition of northern communities, all fire and law enforcement agencies will be on-board with the Quick Response Teams.
    All local hospitals are now included in referring overdose patients as well. There are more than 85 community members and organizations working together in partnership to ensure the success of the outreach program.
  • Gala, Arts Awards coming soon
    8/23/2019 The countdown has begun.
    On Sept. 18, Nickel Plate Arts will hold its seventh anniversary gala with the fourth edition of the Nickel Plate Arts Awards to celebrate the area’s burgeoning arts scene and recognize some of the most valuable artists and arts advocates.
    The gala will take place at the Mill Top Banquet and Conference Center and feature dinner by Jacquie’s Catering, wine from Mr. G’s liquors, live music, hands-on arts experiences and a live auction during Nickel Plate Arts’ premiere fundraiser of the year.
    “This year’s gala is critical to Nickel Plate’s overall financial health,” Aili McGill, executive director for Nickel Plate Arts, said. She added that it “also allows us to share the stories of how the members of our creative community are improving the quality of life within and promoting economic development throughout the Nickel Plate region.”

    The Millers began their 2019 season with a trip to #7 ranked Carmel on Thursday night. The energy inside Murray Stadium was electric. The boys fed off this energy and came out with high intensity. At the opening kickoff, the Millers played a long ball into Drew Barnes who slotted in Harry Christman for a chance on net. He was denied but it was a strong start for the Millers.

    However, this energy quickly turned to nerves as the Millers started losing their identity on the field. A defensive break down saw a Carmel attacker break through the back line and get taken down inside the box. Carmel was awarded a penalty kick. Luckily for the Millers, the Carmel attacker hit the outside of the post and missed his opportunity. Carmel continued to press in the first half. A failed clearance by the Millers in the 22nd minute saw Carmel bag the first goal of the game. The Greyhounds would take a 1-0 lead into halftime.

    In the second half, the Millers came out more poised and started completing passes. This led to many better chances. Drew Cochran was on the other end of free kick that saw a thundering header sail just over the bar. Finally, with 3 minutes to go in the game and still down 1, Colin Todd made a nice run up the left flank. He ended up getting fouled just outside the penalty area. Senior captain Jack Miller calmly stepped up and drilled an in-swinger near post to beat the Carmel goalkeeper and level the score at 1.

    Carmel made it very

     interesting in the final minute by drawing a foul 30 yards out. Their free kick once again hit the outside of the post and harmlessly went out of bounds, preserving a 1-1 draw as the game clock struck zeroes.

    The Millers are back in action at home on Tuesday, August 27th against Avon. It is Teacher Appreciation night where some of the boys' greatest teachers from Noblesville Schools will be recognized for their continued commitment to educating Noblesville students.

    For the Greyhounds they will be back in action on Saturday as they travel to take on the fifth ranked Hamilton Southeastern Royals.

    The Hamilton Heights Huskies volleyball team hosted the Sheridan Blackhawks Thursday evening and were able to pick up their third victory in a row winning in straight sets 25-20, 25-9, and 25-18.

    Jordan Fryman would lead the Husky offense with 12 total kills in the win while Kennedy McGill would end the night with five aces. Kelsey Smith would give have 12 of her 19 total served in in points for the Huskies.

    The win improves their record to 3-1 on the season with a trip to Cardinal Ritter on Saturday to play in the Cardinal Ritter Invitational.

    The Blackhawks would be lead on defense by Becca Merrit who finished her night with five blocks. Abbi Clouser would have four total digs on the night, and Kaiden Wilson would have four kills, two aces and a block for the Blackhawks.

    The loss drops the Blackhawks record to 0-3 on the season as the team is still looking for its first win. They will travel to Shenandoah on a Saturday for tournament play starting a 9 a.m.

    Lady Millers fall to Bishop Chatard

    After a loss to Mt. Vernon on Wednesday night the Lady Millers hosted Bishop Chatard in hopes of getting back on the winning track.

    However Bishop Chatard would end up winning the match in four sets 25-13, 23-25, 25-17, and 25-17.

    For the Millers Bella Hines had a good game dishing out assists to her teammates as she would end the game with 26 assists. Lexie Almodovar would lead the offensive charge ending her night with 17 kills, while Rose Crist ended with 11. Almodovar would also contribute nine digs on the night while Diana Cox and Abby Johnson both finished with 8 digs of their own.

    The loss puts the Millers record at 1-2 on the season. They will be back in action on Tuesday night as they travel to Pendleton Heights High School to take on the Arabians at 7 p.m.

  • Turn on those Friday Night Lights!
    8/22/2019 

    The long wait is over, finally!

    Indiana High school football kicks off today at 7 p.m.

    One Hamilton County home game of particular interest should be at Noblesville, where the former Hare Chevrolet Field has been renamed Beaver Materials Field.

    One thing will remain the same when Class 5A No. 2 Cathedral comes calling for the 2019 opener. Bob Tremain will be seated in the press box as usual. He begins his 25th season announcing Noblesville Millers football.

    That’s a long time. What a milestone . . . yeah, and that’s a BIG deal. A really BIG deal!

    The Millers plan to honor him in the regular-season-ending home game on Oct. 11.

    And Noblesville Schools will commemorate 150 years of excellence during the 2019-20 school year.

    “It’s a great day to be a Miller!’’ said Tremain, a former teacher and Girls Athletic Director at Noblesville High School.

    Hopefully, there won’t be a similar outcome to last season’s opener against the Irish at Lucas Oil Stadium. That ended in favor of Cathedral, 31-7. Noblesville should certainly have much incentive. And hopefully the Millers can add plenty of excitement in what could be a big-time game for them.

    Not sure how tough Cathedral is this season, though the Irish are usually good and competitive. The program also has produced 12 state champions, the last coming in 2014. And that preseason ranking is impressive. The Irish are ranked right behind defending state champion New Palestine in the Coaches’ poll.

    The Irish are young and inexperienced in some areas, similar to Noblesville. But Cathedral does have a proven quarterback in Orin Edwards. He threw for 2,500-plus yards and 23 touchdowns last year as a junior. He also scrambles well. One would think that containing him looms imperative for the Millers.

    Noblesville has a pair of 3-year starters in offensive linemen Cam Knight and receiver Jayden Barrett. Junior receiver Zach Blevins and fullback Elijah Butler, a senior move-in from Toledo, Ohio, could play a big role on offense. More experience comes at linebacker, led by Jacob Hamm; and in the secondary, led by Aidan Richardson and Carson Sanders.

  • Christopher Allen "Chris" Whicker
    8/24/2019 Christopher Allen "Chris" Whicker, 44, Sheridan, passed away Tuesday evening, Aug. 20, 2019 at Riverview Health in Noblesville surrounded by his loving family. He fought a long and courageous battle against kidney disease for more than 20 years during which he received two transplants.
  • John “Wendell” House
    8/24/2019 John “Wendell” House, 93, formerly of Hamilton County, passed away Tuesday, Aug. 20, 2019, in Matthews, North Carolina.

  • 8/20/2019 Dear Editor,
    Members of our congregation’s leadership team just returned from the annual assembly of the Leadership Conference of Women Religious, where they joined more than 650 leaders of orders of Catholic sisters who sent a letter to President Trump imploring him to end all divisive language. 
    Our entire Leadership Team from Sisters of Providence of Saint Mary-of-the-Woods also felt compelled to expand on this letter.
    Our congregation is a community of Catholic women religious who collaborate with others to create a more just and hope-filled world through prayer, education, service and advocacy.
  • 8/5/2019 Dear Editor,
    I am writing this to Congress about our ongoing fiscal crisis and requesting that you use your office and influence to enact real structural change to our Federal budget. I am expected to manage my affairs, both business and personal, in a manner which is functional and sustainable and my government should as well. I live in Noblesville, where the median household income is roughly $74,681 and the debt load is $168,958. If my neighbors and I were to budget like the Federal government, that debt load would be a staggering $424,522. I have to point out that the debt number I am using as the average, and includes debt free households as well as borrowers and is likely much higher in reality. Imagine two teachers starting their first jobs in Noblesville with over $400,000 in debt. 
  • 7/31/2019 Dear Editor,
    It’s back to school again and in July! What happened to summer vacation for students who need the time for summer jobs, visiting relatives, experiencing summer vacations with their families and just having time for themselves?
    The balanced school calendar which is also “year around school” affects all of us, whether we have children in school or not, and three examples are the moved up dates for county fairs, the Indiana State Fair timing and the closing of public pools long before the summer heat is gone.
    Added to this scenario are the free handouts of new school supplies every year to students. My questions are:,Are the students being taught to reuse their school supplies from the year before? Do the parents pass down outgrown supplies to younger siblings such as backpacks?
    The bottom line is, why must the students be receiving free new supplies every year? I welcome an honest answer.

  • 8/24/2019 There are many ways to pray, too many to number really. Most of us think of the traditional prayer pose of bowed head, and clasped hands. Many times, when I lie in bed awake with thoughts, my eyes fly open in the dark and I speak to God requesting that I hear her sing me to sleep with peace and mercy. Prayer offers us day and night time opportunities to come to God with words while seeking — through the language of petition and supplication. Prayer comes in waves of asking and listening, perceiving and moving. It is not in the request or petition, but in the searching and wrestling that we hope to gain clarity.

  • 8/23/2019 Mary Ellen and I just returned from a trip to San Francisco with our friends the Murphys. The last time we were in California was 40 years ago on our honeymoon, but we weren’t going to let one bad experience prevent us from giving The Golden State another try. 
    On this vacation, we stayed at a very old hotel, which you would think would be a good choice for four kinda old people. After all, we got a senior discount on the room, and a dinner menu with early-bird senior specials. Why then, I wondered, did we end up with a bathtub that would be a challenge for a 20-year-old Olympic pole vaulter? 
    The tub was probably in that bathroom since the early 1900s, a time in our history when the average lifespan was 47 years, unless someone never took a bath or shower and then could probably make it to 60 without breaking his neck. 
    This ancient relic, known as a claw foot tub, had sides that were three feet high, and there were no railings or rubber bathmats to reduce the chance of slipping when entering or exiting the combination tub/shower. This freaked out my wife.

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.
