When I saw 11-year-old Marshall Frye, wearing a white lab coat, watching the Poultry Show in the Small Animal Barn on Thursday during the Hamilton County 4-H Fair, I had to ask if he was showing a chicken.

He seemed so serious, dressed nicely in his lab coat while watching the judges go from one chicken cage to the next.

So I asked. And yes, he was exhibiting his chicken.

But even better, he had just been named Hamilton County 4-H Grand Champion Poultry Showman in the beginner division. A little later, the son of Blair and Emily Frye won Reserve Grand Champion in Poultry Exhibition for beginners.

His mom was standing nearby eavesdropping on our conversation about Marshall’s chicken. And there was a paparazzi brother, Cameron, 13, a 4-H’er carrying a camera, snapping photos of us as I interviewed the home-schooled seventh-grader, a first-year Hamilton County 4-H’er.

    Tonight's Endless Summer Band concert at Cool Creek Park has been canceled.

    With the sun shining brightly right now it seems odd to inform all concert fans that this evening's concert is cancelled. However, with the enhanced risk of severe weather forecast for Central Indiana, the safety of fans, sponsors, vendors, volunteers, and staff is a top priority.

    Be sure to join in for our season finale concert featuring the wildly popular Flying Toasters on Aug. 3.


  • Poultry champion loves his chicken

  • Kids learn essential life skills through 4-H
    7/19/2018 Audrey Hostrawser is 13 years old, but she’s already showed horses for six years at the fair.

    Thursday, the opening day of the Hamilton County 4-H Fair at the Hamilton County Fairgrounds in Noblesville, marked another year in the Horse & Pony English Show in the saddle. 

    Audrey had just finished winning third place in her class, but this time around wasn’t as easy as it’s always been. 

    “(Preparing for 4-H is) usually kind of hard,” said Audrey. “At least it was for me, because (my horse) had sass problems. I had to show her I was dominant.”
  • Baseball rules changes focus on pitching mechanics
    7/20/2018 The elimination of the requirement for the entire pivot foot to be in contact with the pitcher’s plate is among the changes approved for the 2018-19 high school baseball season.

    This revision in Rule 6-1-3 was one of three changes recommended by the National Federation of State High School Associations (NFHS) Baseball Rules Committee at its June 3-5 meeting in Indianapolis. All changes were subsequently approved by the NFHS Board of Directors.

    “We are very fortunate that the state of high school baseball is in an excellent position, which is indicative of the few rules changes that were passed,” said Elliot Hopkins, NFHS director of sports and student services and staff liaison for baseball. “We appreciate the hard work of dedicated coaches who, in addition to minimizing risk associated with the sport, teach the game in a way that makes our young people enjoy playing for their high school. We must also acknowledge the highly professional and responsible game umpires. Without their thorough knowledge and implementation of NFHS rules, we would not be able to enjoy the small injury rate and increase in player participation.”
  • OUT IN THE OPEN- Metal military monsters are great for storage
    7/19/2018 I’d be willing to bet that at least half of our readership has one sitting in the garage, shed, barn or storage unit right now. It’s probably sitting there forlornly gathering cobwebs, waiting patiently for the day it is hauled out to take center stage in a grand and glorious adventure. 

    Or, it might be sitting there like a ticking time bomb, full of stink bait or a forgotten, badly-tanned squirrel tail, waiting for the unfortunate soul who happens to open its airtight lid, accidentally releasing the horrors within. In either case, the nondescript rectangle box might be one of the most overlooked outdoor accessories in spite of being one of the most useful.

    I’m talking about the humble ammo can.

    I never really stopped to think about the somewhat ungainly but supremely useful containers until I recently ran across a webpage that explained the history behind these olive-drab metal military monsters.
  • 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. 
  • 7/19/2018 Dale B. Nightenhelser, 76, of Atlanta, Indiana, passed away Tuesday, July 17, 2018, at Riverview Health in Noblesville.

    He was born May 15, 2018, in Noblesville to Hubert and Pauline (Cruzan) Nightenhelser.
  • Amy Kristine Johnson
    7/18/2018 Amy Kristine Johnson, 50, of Arcadia, passed away Friday, July 13, 2018, at her home.

    She was born Aug. 8, 1967, at Indianapolis. She was a graduate of Broad Ripple High School at Indianapolis with the Class of 1985.
  • 7/17/2018 

    Patricia Michael, of Sheridan, went to be with the Lord on Sunday evening, July 15, 2018.

    She was the youngest of six children born to Orval and Margaret (Pickard) Birden.

    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.

  • 7/20/2018 

    When our new washer and dryer arrived last week, I watched as the two behemoths were installed by two other behemoths.

    “Don’t I get instructions?” I asked, as they were packing their tools to leave.

    Expecting a simple tutorial, I was instead handed a 94-page manual. In four languages.

    I stared at the two appliances for several minutes. Our laundry room now looks like the cockpit of a 747. Between the two machines, there are more than three dozen buttons. Each lights up when it’s touched and emits a series of short annoying beeps as if it is trying to communicate with me like the aliens in the movie Close Encounters of the Third Kind.

  • 7/20/2018 July. She flew by. I need a do over. 

    Well, not really a do over, I just need another July. Perhaps a July 2.0 would be best. 

    Whatever happened to the dog days of summer? 

    They were the days of my childhood, the days when boredom was an actual thing. “You are bored?” queries my mother, “Go outside.” 

    Back in the day, there were no sport camps, band camps, art camps, theater camps, math camp, etc. We made do, we made our own camp experience; exploring the neighborhood, making art in the dirt, playing sandlot baseball and sometimes just lying in the grass looking at the clouds. 
  • 7/19/2018 Since I featured cats in a column last month, it only seems fair to devote one to dogs, too.

    If you’re around my age, you may recall Sparky, the Noblesville Fire Department’s Dalmatian. For me, he was one of the highlights of the 1960s Christmas parades, riding on the fire engine with a big, beautiful bow tied around his neck.

    Well, Sparky wasn’t the department’s first dog-in-residence. (In fact, he wasn’t even the first Sparky).

    The earliest reference I found to a canine mascot at the Noblesville Fire Department was a dog named McKinley. McKinley popped up in the July 4, 1902, Hamilton County Ledger because the department hadn’t paid his dog tax.

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.
