The honors just keep coming in for Hamilton County. 
Indiana Secretary of Career Connections and Talent Blair Milo joined Indiana officials Thursday afternoon in Carmel to announce Hamilton County as the state’s fourth 21st Century Talent Region, a statewide designation awarded to Indiana communities focused on working collaboratively to attract, develop and connect talent.
“Home to more than 330,000 Hoosiers, Hamilton County has been recognized as one of the fastest growing counties in the country, as a ‘Best Place to Live and Raise a Family,’ and now, as a 21st Century Talent Region,” Secretary Milo said. “As a 21st Century Talent Region, Hamilton County continues to collaborate with leaders in and around Carmel, Fishers, Noblesville and Westfield, and to develop the partnerships necessary to further grow the region.”

  • Seminary Park shines again
    12/6/2019 Noblesville residents can stroll through the newly renovated Seminary Park when it lights up tonight for the holiday season.
    The City of Noblesville will show off Noblesville’s small downtown neighborhood park at 10th and Hannibal streets during tonight’s Lights Over Seminary.
    Carolers will sing at 5:30 p.m. prior to a 5:45 p.m. Noblesville Preservation Alliance lighting ceremony, during which Noblesville Mayor John Ditslear will cut a ribbon, reopening the park. The ceremony will also include a brass quintet and free hot chocolate.
    Lights Over Seminary, in its second season, continues nightly through December, with lights on from 5 p.m. to 11 p.m. Seminary Park will be one of the free trolley-ride stops tonight during December First Friday in downtown Noblesville.
    A gigantic light switch, provided by Duke Energy, will officially turn on the lights at 6 p.m. “It will be a cool visual for the mayor to flip the switch,” said Head, who was found Thursday afternoon decorating his department’s Christmas tree, fittingly a business-themed tree. The tree is among sponsor trees this year and there is a contest for best tree. (During Lights Over Seminary’s inaugural year in 2018, Noblesville Planning Department took home the honors for its Grinch tree.)
  • The Nutcracker: Short & Suite

    “Our Nutcracker Short & Suite is the perfect opportunity to see our ensemble dancers perform ballet, tap, pointe and modern dances in a wonderful, shortened presentation,” said Traci Broman, Village Dance Studio owner. “The dancers put their heart into every performance and we welcome the community to celebrate with us.”

  • 12/5/2019 BROWNSBURG - The WHS wrestlers lost a difficult 1st dual of the season to #1 ranked Brownsburg. This young team of 2 freshman, 6 sophomores, and only 1 senior battled for every point but the experience of Brownsburg was too much to overcome. The rocks were lead by the lone senior in the line-up, #3 ranked Carson Eldred. Carson picked up the first fall of the night at 120lbs. However the highlight of the night came from freshman Jason Rooney. In this first varsity experience, Jason dominated the entire match eventually picking up fall in the 3rd period. The rocks are back in action on Saturday, at home, for the Shamrock Duals.

    Some items of interest:

    Could some high school football changes be on the horizon?

    Uh-huh, sure sounds like a possibility.

    Bob Gaddis, the Executive Director of the Indiana Football Coaches Association and a 2-time state championship coach at Columbus East, replied to me via a text message this week and said that the IFCA will be surveying the membership on 2 possible proposals:

    *—The addition of 8-man football . . . and the option of having a multi-school jamboree in place of the usual preseason scrimmage against another school. 

    “The format for a multi-school jamboree would be similar to the scrimmage, but bring multiple teams to one site,’’ said Gaddis, the former Danville HS coach who will be entering his 20th year with a 204-40 as the Columbus East football coach.

  • David Wayne "Dave" Sanders

    She was born on Feb. 12, 1928 to Elzie and Ruby [Kirk] Burgin in Pennington Gap, Va.

  • 11/19/2019 Dear Editor,
    Sally and I want to thank Riverview Hospital, the doctors and the staff for the outstanding treatment we received during Sally’s recent illness. For five days in intensive care and several days thereafter, plus two visits to the emergency room, we could not have received better treatment. It is truly a blessing for our community to have such a fine facility, but even more so such very caring caregivers.
  • 10/26/2019 Dear Editor,
    On Wednesday, Indiana Senator Mike Braun, a Republican, and Delaware Senator Chris Coons, a Democrat, announced that they will form the bipartisan Climate Solutions Caucus in the United States Senate. As Indiana Faith Leaders, we want to recognize Senator Braun for stepping up at this historic moment to call for Climate Action.
    Responding to climate change is our moral responsibility and civic duty. We are heartened to hear that our Senator is taking a lead on one of the most important challenges of our time.
    Climate change affects everyone, especially those who have the least resources. Here in Indiana, we have seen and will continue to see negative consequences: increased flooding affecting crops and water quality; additional insect-borne illnesses; extreme heat waves affecting the health of our children, the elderly, and all those who work outside; and strained social services and government resources. We are also seeing extreme temperature fluctuations causing burdensome impacts on our roads and infrastructure. The impact of climate change will necessitate the movement of people displaced from other communities.
  • 10/24/2019 Dear Editor,
    Central Indiana has recently seen a rash of children getting ahold of unsecured guns and injuring themselves or someone else. Thursday in Mooresville, a two-year-old gained access to his mother’s unsecured gun and unintentionally shot and killed himself — please note I said “unintentionally” and not “accidentally.” These incidents are not accidents. They are preventable and it is up to us as adults to keep our kids safe.
    According to a 2015 survey that appeared in the Journal of Urban Health, about 13 million U.S. households with kids under 18 have at least one gun, and of those 13 million, approximately 4.6 million, or around 35%, of those homes have at least one gun that is loaded and unlocked. Around 350 kids gain access to a firearm and unintentionally shoot themselves or someone else each year in the U.S.
    Unsecured guns also play a large role in youth suicide. 500 kids die by suicide with a gun each year in the U.S. and the Indiana Department of Health ranks Indiana as tenth in the nation for youth suicide attempts and first in the nation for youth suicide ideation.
  • 12/6/2019 I’d like to celebrate some of the special people I interviewed while doing my weekend segments on WISH-TV in 2019.
    Gregg Bell is 90 and still practices dentistry and is director of that department at Logansport State Hospital. But wait, there’s more! In 1953 Bell won the Olympic gold medal in long jumping, in Melbourne, Australia. When I interviewed him, I asked to him to show me the 26-feet, 5.2-inch distance that won him first place. Greg eyeballed the floor and walked it off within a quarter of an inch.
    Gary Varvel is one of the few remaining nationally syndicated political cartoonists in the country. He is now retired from the Indianapolis Star but offers his work from his website. Gary invited me to his home to see how, with the help of a high-tech software program, he creates his award-winning drawings. I seldom agreed with Gary politically, but there is no arguing with his creativity. He also did a caricature of me. I love caricatures. I don’t seem to get any older in them.

  • 12/4/2019 It was a soggy Sunday afternoon. Just as I walked out the door of my house to go to the Noblesville Christmas Parade, I felt raindrops.
    So I turned around and traded my red wool coat for my green waterproof jacket. And my boots for my waterproof hiking shoes.
    The trek was just a block to the Ivy Tech Community College parking lot, where I had earlier seen a couple of Miller’s Towing trucks already parked in the parade-staging area. 
    By the time I got to Ivy Tech parking lot, at about 1:30 p.m., many of the parade entries were already lining up for the 2 p.m. parade. Parade entries have lined up there at 16th and Harrison ever since I can remember.
    Even way back when I worked at The Noblesville Ledger and got to drive a golf cart or a Hare Chevrolet convertible with Ledger/Topics mascot, Flip the Turtle, sitting on the back. I always donned a newspaper carrier’s bag filled with Tootsie Rolls to give out to kids. Back in the day, people in the parade threw candy into the crowd. But the City has since banned throwing candy, which must be handed out. 
    On Sunday, the parade may or may not have had as many entries as past Noblesville parades. To me, the parade was about typical for Christmas. But the crowd was pretty slim due to the weather.

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.
