We know Sarah E. Morin-Wilson as the youth experience manager at Conner Prairie in Fishers. Sometimes she’s called the “kid wrangler.” She wears an official blue shirt and coordinates Conner Prairie’s 118 youth volunteers.

By day, and a lot of weekends, she works from her office and around the grounds at the interactive history park. But on Sunday, we noticed a message posted on her door. She’s out of the office all week. She’s on vacation. Well, sort of.

Morin-Wilson is launching her book, “Rapunzel the Hairbrained” at this week’s “Welcome to Fairyville” event at Nickel Plate Arts campus in Noblesville. The sixth-annual event kicked off Wednesday and continues through Saturday, with most activities free.

“Come see me,” her note reads, getting attention from youth volunteers as they come and go from the youth lounge at Conner Prairie.

For co-workers and youth volunteers, is this their first knowledge of Morin-Wilson living a fairy-tale life and writing unruly tales?

  • United Way to celebrate 100 heroes at Indianapolis Motor Speedway
    4/19/2018 SPEEDWAY – The Central Indiana community is invited to join thousands of fellow hand-raisers as United Way celebrates its 100th anniversary on the famed oval of the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. This rain or shine event is complete with a community lunch, a parade of United Way’s 100 heroes and partner agencies and a collective human art display on the yard of bricks.

    Four of those heroes — Abigail Stutesman-Rinehart, Mary Payne, Mike Corbett and Diane Schmidt — are from Noblesville. 

    Abigail Stutesman-Rinehart

    Stutesman-Rinehart has served the Boys & Girls Club of Noblesville for the past 17 years – a place she knows well and holds dear to her heart. As a child, Stutesman-Rinehart grew up as a member of the Club. Her first part-time job as a teenager was working at the Club’s front counter. Following college, she moved back to her hometown and began her professional career with the Boys & Girls Club of Noblesville.

    She has served in various roles at the Club throughout her career, but has always had a strong passion and focus on serving the youth, their needs and their development. Through hard work, dedication and a passion for the mission, Stutesman-Rinehart has done amazing work and changed lives for the people served by the Boys & Girls Club of Noblesville.

    Heights Blue team — Chase Brennan, Grace Dent, Blake Webel and Chloe Henderson — came in fifth place with a total of 1,347 points. Both teams advanced to the state contest on May 19.
  • Riverview Health Foundation to host 14th annual Women of Vision luncheon

    In addition to the luncheon taking place at a new location, Riverview Health Foundation also announced that national author Kelly Corrigan will be the featured speaker at this year’s event.

  • Westfield senior reflects on no-hitter against Noblesville
    4/19/2018 After striking out the final batter in a 3-0 victory over Noblesville on Friday, Westfield’s Matthew Meyer was finally able to crack a smile.

    Throughout the contest, the senior pitcher sat in the back of the dugout, away from his teammates who cheered along the rest of the Shamrocks team. He knew he was on the verge of throwing a no-hitter, but didn't want to think about it too much.

    That seventh-inning strikeout gave him his first victory of the season and completed a 103-pitch no-hitter for Meyer. He finished the day with 10 strikeouts and four walks in his seven innings of work.

    “The whole last inning, I was still pretty calm and relaxed,” Meyer said. “Once I struck out that last batter, I realized what happened, and I saw my teammates running at me. It was pretty sweet … Honestly, it’s something I’ve never really experienced before.”
  • Student-Athlete Tip of the Week
    4/17/2018 With the end of the school year only five or six weeks away, all student-athletes should be thinking about finishing strong in the classroom.

    This time of year it is so easy to look ahead to summer. However, don't forget about the importance of your grades. The last weeks of school are just as important as the first few, so don't let your grade-point average slip. Think of the end of the school year like it's the end of a ballgame. Don't let all the hard work disappear in a one or two week period.

    Whether you play a spring sport or not, the next few weeks could determine a college choice down the road. Don't look back next year (whether you are a senior or underclassman) and say, “If my grades were better last year, I could be attending the college of my choice.”

    Dear Editor,

    The elected sheriff assumes three core job duties when taking office:

    • Provide law enforcement protection for the unincorporated population of the county and assist, when needed, those municipal and town police departments protecting the incorporated population.
    • Operate and maintain the County Jail and Juvenile Detention Center.
    • Serve and protect the seven state courts housed in the Government and Judicial Center.

    The sheriff’s operating budget is $17.3 million, which includes 216 personnel and a fleet of more than 100 vehicles. The staff consists of 61 sworn police officers, 131 staff assigned to the corrections operation and 24 civilian staff.

    The next sheriff will face many challenges:

     
    • 4/17/2018 Dear Editor, 

      The front page announcement with picture on April 10 that our leaders approved and gladly announced with a ceremony the building of more jail cells was a sad sight to me.

      Do we need more jail space? What is causing this agreed upon need?

      We have 5 percent of the world’s population and 20 percent of its jail population. What is wrong with this picture?

      Are our fellow citizens more uncivilized than the world's average person? Are our neighbors’ behaviors really so unacceptable that we need to take them from their families and jobs to lock them away?
    • 4/12/2018 

      Dear Editor,

      To the voters in Hamilton County:

      My name is Brad Beaver, and I am running for State Representative District 29. I am seeking your support.

      I was born and raised in Noblesville, graduated from Noblesville High School and, after attending Ivy Tech, I started my own heating and air conditioning business. I am a fourth-generation business owner in Hamilton County. For the past 22 years, I have also served you on the Hamilton County Council. I am a true representative of Noblesville and District 29.

      The other candidates can give vague promises to be conservative, however, I have a long record of serving on the financial body of Hamilton County Government that speaks for itself. I ask voters to consider my record of public service when choosing their next State Representative.

    • Noblesville’s new hotel ready for 1st guests
      4/17/2018 

      Noblesville’s new Embassy Suites Hotel & Conference Center is awaiting its first guest.

      The city’s newest, largest and most impressive hotel opens today.

      “We are still awaiting for the magic moment when we get approval to open the reservation booking tool so our first guest can arrive,” said Kelly Sujka of Noblesville, the hotel’s director of sales.

      She said while there has been much excitement about today’s opening of the hotel for accommodations, “Unfortunately our reservations system will not allow us to book for opening night until the magic moment that our brand Hilton quality inspector arrives and ensures that we have met the guidelines established by Embassy Suites to meet the needs of our guests ... My guess is later in the afternoon.”

      I had the awesome opportunity to tour the hotel with front office manager Ashley Lawson on Thursday, when I attended the Noblesville Chamber of Commerce’s Taste of Business there.

      “We already have over a million dollars on the books,” Lawson told me. “So, we’re off to a great start.”

    • 4/17/2018 This has been the first week that weather conditions are favorable for the kids to ride their bikes to school. They have been eagerly anticipating it; especially my 12-year-old who prefers not to ride with me because she likes to be early. Or maybe it would be more accurate to say she doesn’t like sliding into her desk just as the bell rings. I’m a sucker for racing against a deadline, but my kids don’t always appreciate it.

      This morning, she opted to leave before her younger brother. He tends to linger over breakfast, and then takes his sweet time packing his backpack, pulling on his socks and turning back to retrieve forgotten items. Initially, she indicated that she would wait outside, so when I saw that he was going for a second serving of scrambled eggs, I opted to let her know she should go without him. 

      I found it odd that the overhead door on the garage was closed. Thinking she must be right outside, I hit the button and waited while it slowly opened. She wasn’t there. I walked to the front of the house, calling her name, and it crossed my mind that the street was unusually quiet. Realizing she had already left, I went back inside. 

      After getting brother off to school, I ran a couple of errands, and then decided to work from McDonald’s. I had just finished my first cup of coffee when the phone rang. 
    • 4/16/2018 April is National Financial Literacy Month and a good opportunity to become more educated on how to better manage our money.

      Whether a child just starting out with a piggy bank or an adult applying for a mortgage, the Indiana MoneyWise Financial Education Program promotes financial literacy for Hoosiers of all ages. At no cost to taxpayers, this program offers interactive learning tools and resources.

      Teenagers can develop basic financial skills, including how to set up a budget, pay for higher education, invest, establish long-term goals, build credit, manage credit cards, rent property and pay utilities. Adults can better understand retirement options, refinancing tools and mortgages. There are even tips for newlywed couples to follow and ideas for helping children understand money management.

    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.
