When Alaska Airlines Flight 55 touched down around 9 a.m. on October 20 at Prudhoe Bay Airport, 66-year-old Fishers resident Gregg Schmidt became just the 60th person to reach every single one of the 3,142 counties and county equivalents in the United States.
Yes, you read that correctly.
Schmidt has been to all 92 counties in Indiana, all 254 counties in Texas, all 159 counties in Georgia and every other county in every other state across the nation. Just six women and 54 men have completed and documented the feat.
  • Janus programs helps those with disabilities
    12/15/2018 Walking through Janus Developmental Services, visitors can easily see the good that’s happening there.
    Janus, located on the west side of Noblesville, provides individuals with disabilities the opportunity to participate and contribute within the community. Janus provides job training for people with developmental disabilities through sheltered employment in a controlled environment. Clients earn an hourly wage, according to their productivity.
    Friday, I wrote about Janus’ partnership with the Noblesville First United Methodist Church in presenting a Festival of Music and Arts on Sunday evening at the church.
    Today, I’m focusing more about Janus.

  • NFD responds to garage fire in Waterman Farms addition
    12/15/2018 Shortly before 4 p.m. on Thursday, Dec. 13, the Noblesville Fire Department responded to a residence fire in the Waterman Farms Addition. The first units to arrive were confronted with smoke and flames coming from the garage.
    The occupant of the home informed the crews that everyone had safely evacuated. Firefighters were able to quickly bring the fire under control, limiting the fire to the garage. While one crew extinguished the fire, a second crew was able to rescue a dog and two pet snakes from the home.
    The Noblesville Fire Department was assisted by the Noblesville Police Department, Fishers Fire Department, and an off-duty Jackson Township Chief. The cause of the fire is still under investigation. 
  • 12/14/2018 The Noblesville Millers (2-3) took on the Westfield Shamrocks (3-2) in a conference matchup on Friday night in Westfield. The Millers lost 51-38 in a game they had led through the first three quarters.
    The Shamrocks finished the game outscoring the Millers 20-6 in the fourth quarter. Westfield's senior shooting guard Caleb Welch finished the game with 17 points, which included four three-pointers.
    The Millers started the game with a 7-0 run and looked good in the opening two minutes. Throughout most the first quarter, the Shamrocks struggled with Noblesville’s zone defense. But at the very end of the quarter, Westfield's junior point guard Chris Chin drove the lane and hit a buzzer-beating shot—cutting the Noblesville lead to just five.
    At the end of the first, Noblesville was on top 13-8.
    In the second quarter, the Millers had their own troubles dealing with Westfield's zone. In the first five minutes of the quarter, the Millers managed just three points.
    But Noblesville finished the half with three at the buzzer by point guard Jordan Schmidt that gave the Millers a 21-16 lead going into the locker room.
    The Shamrocks started the third quarter shooting well--they went three for three to open the quarter—including two quick threes by senior shooting guard Caleb Welch.
  • 12/14/2018 It’s been a little while since Your Humble Servant has written a column but there was a really good reason: I was languishing in a Turkish prison.
    No, not really. Actually, I was someplace far worse- stuck inside various commercial airplanes while heading to firearms-related events. This meant sitting for hours in a cramped aluminum tube filled with sick and smelly people while hurtling through the sky in complete defiance of both the laws of gravity and hygiene.
    When I was hired this summer as the Editor-in-Chief of GUNS Magazine, they asked, “Do you like to travel?” 
    “Of course,” I said, excited with the possibilities.
    “We’ll break you of that,” they said laconically.

  • 12/8/2018 Dear Editor,
    As Christmas approaches, this time of year should be a lot more than twinkling lights, mistletoe and presents wrapped up in pretty bows. This time of year causes some of us to sit back and reflect upon what is really important in this life. Everyone has a different opinion about what the most important thing in life is. For myself and many caregivers, it is time, and the gift of time with those we love.
    My husband and I were married on March 9th of this year, shortly after we learned that he had a benign brain tumor. On March 12th the doctor’s removed most of the tumor but found that it was indeed malignant. Our lives and the lives of those close to us changed immediately. My husband and I began concentrating not only on what we could do to extend the quantity of his life but the quality of his life was of up most importance.
  • Letter to the Editor - Arrowoods Love Noblesville
    12/7/2018 Dear Editor,
    Been working with Joe Arrowood for quite a few years now, and cannot think of a more dedicated individual to Noblesville than Joe. The Santa Sleigh (pictured), which is displayed next to Santa’s House, is put up each year by Joe and his elf helpers on the court house square. That includes his wife, Jo Ellen. It’s put up for the season and all the local kids. They put up, take down, store, and repair the sleigh display every year.
    This is a family that loves our city, and gives a lot of hours every year to the city’s events. I have worked with Joe many years in the Kiwanis and Lions Clubs. I can’t think of anyone more dedicated to a city, and kids causes than Joe and Jo Ellen Arrowood. Merry Christmas and Thanks to a loving family!
    -Jake Doll, Noblesville
  • 11/30/2018 Dear Editor,
    I’m a resident of Noblesville and I’m feeling so proud of our community tonight. We just returned from the Colts versus Dolphins Game, with a Colts victory! Also tonight, our Noblesville West Middle School West Side Sound performed the National Anthem to kick off the game. As a parent of one of the performers, I couldn’t help but feel many emotions but I couldn’t wait to hear from my daughter about her feelings of the experience.  
    “The Colts Staff were very welcoming, encouraging and fed us lunch,” she said. My daughter continued to say, “singing our country’s National Anthem in front of thousands of people, was such an honor and something I’ll never forget. We represented our show choir, school and community. Ella Whistler also performed with the Colts Cheerleaders, which was so great to see her doing so well and having fun!”

  • 12/15/2018 Humor is nothing more than observing the truth from a slightly different point of view. During 2018, I had my share of experiences—both good and bad—that led to this year’s 50-plus columns. Some thanks are in order:
    Thanks to my surgeon, who taught me how to do Kegels. Good manners prevent me from explaining exactly what this involves (guys, ask your wives), but Mary Ellen called me the King of Kegels because I exceeded the required number of repetitions each day. “I do feel like The King,” I said as I headed off to work, “and right now my Pelvis is leaving the building.”
  • 12/15/2018 When the religious leaders saw the outrageous things he was doing, and heard all the children running and shouting through the Temple, “Hosanna to David’s Son!” they were up in arms and took him to task. “Do you hear what these children are saying?” Jesus said, “Yes, I hear them. And haven’t you read in God’s Word, ‘From the mouths of children and babies I’ll furnish a place of praise’?” Matthew 21:15-16 The Message (MSG)

    Admittedly, our worship on Sunday makes some of my older folk cringe. We are a loud and messy group. Liturgical, in our case anyway, does not mean staid and stuffy. In this house, Roots of Life, we do loud, we forgive, we show grace, and we love everyone. We do follow the four movements of the liturgical Lutheran worship; gather, word, table, and sending.

This Week's Events

12/11/2018
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. We look forward to seeing you! If you have any questions please feel free to contact us.
