The Great American Songbook Foundation is laying the groundwork for the sale of Asherwood, the massive Carmel estate donated by philanthropist Bren Simon to support the Foundation’s mission of music education and historic preservation.
A key step will take place Nov. 17 and Nov. 18 with a major auction of collectible antique furniture, artwork and other personal property from the main house and other structures at the site. At the same time, the Songbook Foundation is seeking proposals from real estate brokers about the best way to market and sell the 107-acre property – which includes two golf courses – to developers or other potential buyers.
Executive Director Chris Lewis said the decision to sell the estate comes after months of study and discussion by the nonprofit Foundation’s staff and a 10-member committee formed by its Board of Directors.
  • 10/20/2018 Ivy Tech Community College and Marian University recently announced a new “2+2 partnership” that will allow students to transfer from Associate of Science to Bachelor of Science degree programs. This collaboration provides a seamless, cost-effective degree pathway for students in business and psychology.
    With the 2+2 program, students are able to complete the first two years of their education and earn an Associate of Science degree at Ivy Tech and then transfer to Marian to complete a Bachelor of Science degree in two additional years. Upon acceptance to Marian, Ivy Tech students will be able to transfer with junior status.

  • 10/20/2018 Farmers and agricultural producers in Indiana have new online options to access U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) programs. Through USDA’s new streamlined process producers can now register, track and manage their applications for the Market Facilitation Program (MFP) and 2017 Wildfires Hurricanes Indemnity Program (2017 WHIP) on the secure and convenient https://www.farmers.gov/sign-in.
    “You can conduct business with USDA from the comfort of your home, office, or mobile device,” said Steven Brown, U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) Farm Service Agency (FSA) State Executive Director for Indiana. “These online services save time, reduce paperwork and, in some cases, speed up processing.”
  • 10/19/2018 SHARPSVILLE — Despite beating the Tri-Central Trojans earlier in the year with a lopsided score, the second time around was a bit closer for the Sheridan Blackhawks as Sheridan won by a score of 35 to 14.
    The Blackhawks struck first on a daring fourth down conversion as Cameron Hovey only needed seven yards but instead got 34 as he found the end zone. Honey then added the extra point to make the score 7-0 with 7:34 left in the first quarter.
    Tri-Central wouldn’t let the first quarter end without a score of their own, however as Ethan Mason would run the ball 16 yards for a touchdown. An extra point tied the score 7-7 with 41.1 seconds left in the first quarter.
    Sheridan would strike twice very quickly as Drake Delph ran 36 yards for a touchdown but the extra point was no good with 10:50 left in the first half. After just over one minute of football, the Trojans fumbled the ball and Sheridan would find the end zone again. Nicholas Burnell scored with a five yard run and Delph kept the ball himself on a successful two point conversion. The score was 21-7 with 9:45 left in the first half.
    After a failed fourth down conversion for the Trojans, Sheridan would score again very quickly as James Manis ran 83 yards for a touchdown run on first down for the Blackhawks. The extra point hit the crossbar again and missed so the score was 27-7 with 6:18 left in the second quarter. That would end the scoring for the first half.
  • 10/19/2018 Guerin Catholic used 21 first-quarter points on the way to a 49-19 win over Crawfordsville Friday night in the Sectional 26 opener. The Golden Eagles advance to Friday’s semifinal against Brebeuf while Crawfordsville’s season ends at 1-9. 
    Guerin scored on its first play from scrimmage – a 41-yard run by Jagger Albert. He would finish with four scores on the night.
    “It’s always nice to get a few things done early and get an upperhand. No matter what the score we just want to keep playing and executing,” said Guerin Catholic coach Tom Dilley.
    “They took it to us there right away. We were playing timid and scared. We talked about ‘just go.’ There’s no tomorrow at this point so you just have to go after it,” Crawfordsville mentor Sean Gerold said. “I’m proud of our kids because they didn’t quit. They stuck it out all year long.”
    Guerin added another two touchdowns to take a 35-point lead into intermission. 
    “I think our line did a good job. You never know exactly what we did until you go back and look at the film,” Dilley said.
    Crawfordsville got on the board with two second half scores from Stephen LaTre and a double pass from Anthony Gonzales to Andrew Martin, but it was too little too late. 
    “The season didn’t go the way that they wanted it to. We got better as the year went on. The underclassmen see how the seniors carry themselves all year long. Their leadership was key to compete,” said Gerold.
  • Huskies eliminated by NM
    10/19/2018 It was a tough loss for the Hamilton Heights Huskies as they ended their season defeated by North Montgomery in Sectional 26, 54-20. 
    Both the Huskies and Chargers were able to score during the first quarter, but North Montgomery took the lead making the score 14-7. However, the Huskies weren’t going to give up on this sectional game. 
    Hamilton Heights wouldn’t go away quietly though. Sophomore quarterback Isaac Wilson connected with Isiah Campbell for their first touchdown and Campbell would take it in again from 12 yards out in their next possession to tie the game at 14.
    But with a Husky fumble Chargers were able to recover for another touchdown making the score 20-14. The Huskies weren’t going to give up just yet as junior Brent Pennington intercepted a throw made by the Chargers. It wasn’t enough as North Montgomery scores yet another touchdown, but failed to complete the 2 point conversion. This didn’t phase the Chargers as the scores again making it 33-14 by the end of the third quarter.
    The fourth quarter allowed for another early touchdown made by the Chargers. With that the Chargers made the fourth quarter theirs and scored two more touchdowns making the score 54-14. Hamilton Heights senior Tad Defoe wasn’t going to give up and scored the last Husky touchdown of the season making the final score 54-20.

  • 10/20/2018 Happy Birthday, Miss Merz. My former teacher will be celebrating her 105th birthday in late October. I’m nearing 80 myself but am still learning life’s lessons 
    from my teacher.
    My family’s ties to teaching began in 1808 when Dan Hosbrook turned a log cabin into a subscription school (parents paid a penny a day or some such fee) to teach reading and writing. One day the students came early and nailed the door shut, “barring out” teacher Dan. Dan’s answer was to cover the chimney, forcing smoke back into the schoolhouse.
  • 10/19/2018 To the Editor:
    Several people have mentioned to me the Noblesville school referendum on this upcoming ballot.
    Economic development is key to an increasing standard of living. The American dream has been that our children, and their children, will be better off than we are, just as we are better off than our parents and grandparents.
    One of the secrets to the success of the United States has been universal education.  Emblazoned in Indiana's Constitution is our commitment to free public education. "Free to whom?" you may well ask.  Well, I say to you "TINSTAAFL". There Is No Such Thing As A Free Lunch.
  • 10/18/2018 To the Editor:
    Last year, the U.S. House of Representatives passed legislation known as Concealed Carry Reciprocity. If this bill becomes law, the Federal government would override our state’s standards on who can carry hidden, loaded handguns in public and force us to recognize the standards of every other state – even the states that have lower standards than Indiana, or not standards at all.
    Concealed Carry Reciprocity should never become law. It encroaches on states’ rights, and would force Indiana to allow people with dangerous histories and many people with no permit whatsoever to carry hidden, loaded guns in our communities. It’s a law that would put our police, first responders, and children in harm’s way.
  • 10/20/2018 Mary Ellen and I decided today to make a reservation somewhere for New Year’s Eve. I usually wait a bit longer to make this important decision. Last year I waited until Dec. 31. That may seem like last minute, but I did leave a voice message first thing that morning.
    I called one restaurant and they were still planning the menu. The manager said: “Please call back after November 1, but don’t wait too long. Some loser called last year on New Year’s Eve morning.”
    Just for fun, the other night my wife and I sat down and tried to see if we could remember what we did every New Year’s Eve since we were married in 1980.  We went backwards from 2017 and we were doing surprisingly well until we hit 2000.
  • 10/19/2018 Dear Rusty: Sometimes words used have different meaning to others, like your recent article on the Social Security "Trust Fund."  In a true trust fund, monies are only used for a specific purpose. Our so-called Social Security Trust Fund doesn’t work like that. Instead, money collected goes directly into the US Treasury, mixed up with everything else. To the government, Social Security is just another revenue stream. They don't separate it from others and have no intention of doing so. Soon, we’ve been told, the Social Security fund will be declared insolvent. It should never happen but when you spend every penny that comes in on everything else, when the real purpose needs it the well is dry. Lock up the money so that the political elites can’t use it for their other important items and save the systems. Let them continue to do as they are and have been doing since the 60's, and it's gone. Signed: Disgruntled
  • 10/19/2018 After all that warm weather, it finally feels like fall, which conjures up thoughts of apples and apple cider — and Stuckey Farm, THE place in Hamilton County for apples and a whole lot more.
    For that, we can thank Carmel High School graduate (CHS ‘55,) Gene Stuckey, who sadly passed away earlier this year.
    Lifelong farmer Francis Eugene “Gene” Stuckey grew up near 106th St. and Ditch Road, on a farm that is today part of Crooked Stick Golf Club.
    In 1965, as development began to take over the Clay Township countryside, Stuckey and his wife, Rosalyn, bought acreage on the Hamilton/Boone County border, a little south of Sheridan, and moved their farming operations there.

This Week's Events

10/16/2018
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.
