The Noblesville Times 24-7
Wednesday, February 24, 2021 4:00 AM
February is almost over and as we rolls towards March some rain showers seem like an amazing relief after the snow our county just got hit with. It was another busy week in Hamilton County.
***
NOBLESVILLE SCHOOLS announced a proposed rebalancing of elementary school boundaries for the 2021-2022 school year. 
Approximately 200 elementary students (4% of the district’s elementary population) would be impacted by the new boundaries and have already been notified directly of the proposed moves.

  • 2/23/2021 According to the Indiana State Department of Health, Hoosiers age 60 and over are now eligible to register to get the COVID-19 vaccination.
    Across the state, that means the vaccine is now available to an additional 432,000 Hoosiers.
    Appointments must be made in order to receive vaccination. Those appointments are available for the next four to six weeks. Appointments can be made by going online to ourshot.in.gov. If someone does not have the Internet, they have a number of options, including:
  • Lions deliver flowers for Valentine’s Day
    2/23/2021 On Feb. 12 and 13 the Lions Club members assisted Adriene’s Flowers delivering flowers for Valentine’s Day. This year the project became a little tough because of the weather! The Lions Club does this each year, and gets a donation from Adriene’s, as a fundraiser for their many causes. This year’s project was chaired by Lion Gary Hipes.
  • Center Grove too much; but Westfield stands tall
    12/1/2020 Riding a 12-game winning streak entering the Class 6A Indiana high school state football championship game, No. 2 Westfield seemed as poised as any team to give top-ranked Center Grove its toughest challenge.
    Despite a heroic effort from injured running back Micah Hauser, the Shamrocks could not keep up with a prolific Trojans offense that averaged 42 points a game this season.
  • 11/25/2020 Second-ranked Westfield will get a chance to slay Class 6A high school football’s giant Friday at Lucas Oil Stadium.
    The Shamrocks’ 12th consecutive victory since a season-opening loss to Cathedral was typical Westfield football. Mix an effective passing game with the elusiveness of quarterback Maximus Webster and the result was a 41-23 victory Friday night at Merrillville that earned the Shamrocks the north semistate championship.
  • 11/18/2020 Westfield moved one step closer to a shot at the Class 6A state football championship, while Carmel’s reign ended Friday night.
    The Shamrocks claimed their first 6A regional title and fifth overall by dominating Homestead 42-9. Ben Davis withstood a second-half charge from the Greyhounds to prevail 27-21.
    Westfield’s Carson Voorhis stepped in for the injured Micah Hauser and his rushes helped set up Maximus Webster’s 1-yard touchdown run in the first quarter. Sean Sullivan’s kick made it 7-0.
  • Robert C. Cameron
    2/24/2021 Robert C. Cameron, 92, of Westfield, passed away peacefully, surrounded by his daughters on Feb. 10, 2021.  
    He was born Sept. 29, 1928 in Chicago, son of Ernest and Bertha (Underwood) Cameron.
  • Jerrel E. "Jerri" Hunter
    2/24/2021 Jerrel E. "Jerri" Hunter, 91, of Carmel, passed away on Sunday, Feb. 21, 2021 at Sunrise on Old Meridian in Carmel.
    Mrs. Hunter was born on Aug. 30, 1929 to Jesse and Beryle (Metsger) Towe in Burlington, Ind.
  • Brianne E. Baker
    2/24/2021 Brianne E. Baker, 31, of Westfield, passed away on Monday, Feb. 22, 2021. 
    Our beautiful daughter was born on June 6, 1989 to Steve and Sandra (Craig) Baker in Noblesville, Ind.
  • 2/23/2021 EDITOR'S NOTE: A few weeks ago the Hamilton Heights School Corporation’s Classroom Teachers Association (CTA) along with several other Indiana State Teacher’s Association (ISTA)-affiliated teacher groups sent a letter to Gov. Holcomb encouraging him to consider making educators a priority for COVID-19 Vaccination. 
  • 2/23/2021 Dear Editor,
    Why am I not surprised that State Representatives, Todd Huston, Chris Jeter, and Chuck Goodrich voted in favor of stripping Indiana’s local governments of their ability to enact/enforce local ordinances on the installation of commercial wind turbine and solar panel ‘farms’. Representatives Huston, Jeter, and Goodrich represent metropolitan areas (Fishers and Noblesville) not rural areas of Hamilton County. Realistically, only the northern half of Hamilton County has any open land suitable for commercial wind turbine or solar panel installations. 
  • 2/18/2021 Dear Editor,
    The following letter was sent to Gov. Eric Holcomb. It is reprinted here with the author’s permission.

    Gov. Holcomb,
    The Military / Veterans Coalition of Indiana (TMVCI), a coalition of over one hundred (100) organizations who support those serving in our military, those who have served and their families, request you intervene on behalf of Hoosier Veterans and their families to prevent a wrong from happening in the current Indiana General Assembly.
  • Hamilton County's Project Mercury Connections
    2/24/2021 Last week I wrote about a 1962 Noblesville Daily Ledger article that described local reactions to John Glenn’s historic Project Mercury mission.
    That inspired me to search the old newspapers to see what effect the other five Project Mercury space flights might have had on county residents.
    All I could find was one brief comment about Noblesville High School students exhibiting nervous excitement over Scott Carpenter’s flight. (Carpenter, the fourth American in space, went up in May, a few months after Glenn.)
  • Fans come out for Tony Stewart’s boat unveiling
    2/24/2021 The unveiling of racing legend Tony Stewart’s newly designed 2021 Supra SA550 boat on Sunday brought out auto racing fans from near and far toting all kinds of memorabilia in hopes of obtaining autographs from the retired IndyCar and NASCAR driver/current team owner.
    A line of fans snaked around the inside of the Pro Wake Watersports showroom, at 146th Street and Indiana 37, in Noblesville, as fans watched and waited to meet their all-American auto-racing hero, nicknamed Smoke, who never ceases to be honest and real with his fans as well as reporters.
  • Thinking positive about '21 NHS graduation, senior prom
    2/23/2021 I feel some sadness for our Noblesville High School class of 2021 as I did for the class of 2020.
    It wasn’t fair that last year’s graduating class didn’t have an in-person graduation. That they didn’t have a junior-senior prom. And that they ended their school year without getting to see all of their friends.
