Noblesville Chamber of Commerce always has Noblesville’s best interest at heart.
Every time that I go to a Chamber event, I learn something.
The Chamber’s recent Taste of Business, for the second year at the new Embassy Suites by Hilton, was a great place to learn more about Noblesville and all that it offers.
So again, for the second year, I am writing about 20 things that I learned at the Taste of Business.
  • Noblesville Tree Board plants 129 trees, plans Arbor Day events
    4/19/2019 Motorists along Hazel Dell Road will notice new foliage on their drive after the Noblesville Tree Board recently planted 129 trees along approximately a 2-mile stretch south of State Road 32 to Noble Crossing Elementary School.
    “Enhancing the west gateway corridor by planting trees in the median has been a priority of our organization and we were able to use funds this year to beautify that roadway,” said Vince Baker, Noblesville Urban Forester and tree board member.
    Partnering with the Noblesville Street Department, the tree board budgets $100,000 a year for plantings. Typically the money is split evenly between the spring and fall plantings and is used to replace street trees.
  • Noblesville Fire Fighters honored at awards, recognition banquet
    4/19/2019 Members of the Noblesville Fire Department, Noblesville Mayor John Ditslear, members of the Common Council, Fire Department Merit Commission, and other guests recently gathered for the Seventh Annual Noblesville Fire Fighters Awards and Recognition Banquet at Embassy Suites.
    Several members of the department were recognized for their service to the community and promotions within the department...
  • 4/19/2019 The City of Noblesville notifies motorists and residents that effective on or after Monday, April 22, the intersection of Greenfield Avenue and Howe Road will be closed for seven weeks, weather permitting. The intersection is scheduled to be a full closure to all traffic. During the closure, traffic should utilize the signed detour route of Promise Road, 146th Street and Cumberland Road.
    The intersection was analyzed by the Noblesville Engineering Department due to concerns with vehicle delays and safety. In order to create a safer and more efficient intersection, a roundabout was chosen.
    United Construction Services has been selected by INDOT to construct the roundabout, which costs $847,117.10. The project is funded through a federal grant with the City of Noblesville’s match of 20 percent, which is $169,423.42.
  • Sports Talk with Mark Morrow - Lady Miller High Jumper High on Life
    4/19/2019 The sky’s not exactly the limit for Noblesville High School senior high jump sensation Shelby Tyler, but to hear her coach, Bill Craig, talk…well, I’m not too sure about that. 
    New heights are surely in her future!
    Craig thinks she can pretty much do whatever she puts her mind to doing.
    “I’ve never seen a more determined, focused and competitive girl, and not just in the high jump, but in track, period,’’ said Craig, who started working with her in the eighth grade. He has been coaching track for 50 years at various schools.
  • Heights senior Carter Campassi to play football for Manchester next fall
    4/18/2019 Hamilton Heights’ senior, has signed a letter of intent to play football for the Manchester University Spartans in Manchester, Indiana this fall. Manchester University is a member of the Heartland Collegiate Athletic Conference (HCAC).  He is the son of Brian and Carrie Campassi.
    “I felt at home at Manchester,” said Carter Campassi, a three-time football letter winner, two-time Leadership team member and member of the 700-pound Big 3 Club. The coaches made me feel like an important piece of their program and would provide me the opportunity to finish what I started.”
    Campassi, who works at the Noblesville Boys and Girls Club, said he plans to study Sports Management.  “My dream job after college would be a front office position for a professional football team,” he noted.
  • 4/18/2019 Eighteen high school students from across the Hoosier State — including one from Hamilton County — will begin next school year as members of the 2019-20 IHSAA Student Advisory Committee, also known as SAC.
    Nine juniors, including Fishers junior Brynn Urban, will join nine seniors to receive hands-on leadership experience in various areas via several IHSAA-sponsored events as well as serve as a voice to the IHSAA staff.
    Each year, the IHSAA receives nominations from school principals on behalf of student-athletes from IHSAA member schools. From that group of nominations, 20 are selected from interviews by members of the IHSAA Executive Committee and returning members of the SAC. From those interviews, nine incoming juniors are invited to join the group of nine returning seniors.

  • 4/19/2019 Dear Noblesville Community,
    Recently I have seen and heard remarks regarding Chris Jensen’s journey in his pursuit of serving as our next mayor. As someone who highly values trust in the integrity of leadership, I understand the concerns I have heard. In running against Chris four years ago, one of my top concerns in him representing and serving Noblesville was in regards to his campaign’s financial contributions. I was also concerned that he was part of what I refer to as “the good ole boy” network and was being groomed to just do as donors and long-term representatives dictate. Neither of these conjectures were true of Chris then. And neither of them is true of him today...
  • 4/19/2019 Dear Editor,
    In the spirit of fellow Hoosier David Letterman here is our campaigns top ten list, my case for why I am the right choice to serve the people of Noblesville. I am grateful for the opportunity to make my case and humbly ask for your vote. Thank you.
    1). I choose to live here and have for the last 32 plus years. I’m emotionally invested in Noblesville. I care deeply about the people that live here, what happens to us and how we are governed. I have vested roots here and this is where my people live and are growing up/old. I raised my family and made my life here. I have family in Noblesville from age 94 to age twelve months. I am passionate about the community where we live our lives not only for my family but for all our neighbors...
  • 4/19/2019 Dear Editor,
    I am writing to endorse Julia Church Kozicki whom I feel is the best-qualified candidate for Mayor of Noblesville. I have had the pleasure of knowing Julia on a professional and personal level for over a decade. During that time, we have served together on the Noblesville Schools Education Foundation board and have been Tri Kappa sisters. I have always found her to be a great leader. She is patient and takes her time when working with others. She is thorough in her research, has tremendous listening skills, and gives great thought in her response and delivery when speaking in a group or one on one. As a leader, Julia makes sure to address everyone's needs, is inclusive to newcomers and life-long members, and truly enjoys working to achieve a common goal...
  • 4/19/2019 I recently attended the Noblesville Mayoral Candidate debate at Noblesville High School and one of the questions asked was how to best develop the former Firestone plant, an abandoned 70-acre site along Division Street, between 15th and 18th streets.
    Frankly, I was a bit disappointed with the answers given by the four candidates currently running for Noblesville mayor. It seemed as if they had not studied all of the options. Most piggy-backed on plans to build a new police headquarters on the still-contaminated site — plans the city administration has been publicly pursuing for nearly two years.
  • 4/19/2019 I’ve got some reader feedback this week!
    Remember Dennis Hester’s hunt for a history of Durbin School? Tom Heller, the principal at Durbin from 1974 to 2002, sent some information about the Durbin area.
    Tom wrote that when he started working at the school, an elderly lady who lived nearby shared her memories of Durbin with him.
    According to Tom, the community was named for Winfield T. Durbin, Indiana’s governor from 1901 to 1905. (Whew, I’d guessed that when I wrote a column on Durbin and Clarksville a few years ago. It’s nice to have confirmation.)
  • ‘Elected’ youth officials help lead city for a day
    4/19/2019 Wouldn’t it be cool to shadow a city or county official for the day? 
    Especially if you’re a kid.
    Tag along to meetings with Noblesville Mayor John Ditslear. Sit in Noblesville Police Chief Kevin Jowitt’s unmarked car. And tour the firehouse with Noblesville Fire Chief Greg Wyant.
    They could tour the prosecutor’s office with Hamilton County Prosecutor D. Lee Buckingham II. Sit on the bench with Circuit Court Judge Paul A. Felix. And learn the responsibilities of newly-elected Sheriff Dennis Quakenbush.

This Week's Events

4/16/2019
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.
