When Nancy Chance sent me an email asking me to call her right away, I knew that she needed help to fill the holiday needs at Good Samaritan Network of Hamilton County.
The coordinator and founder of the nonprofit -- in its 38th year --  Chance shares with The Times readers every year about the importance of the holiday-assistance giveaways here in the county.
This is a big week for Chance, 71, Noblesville, who from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Thursday and Friday will be at the Hamilton County 4-H Fairgrounds, 2003 E. Pleasant St., Noblesville, accepting donations of canned goods and nonperishable food items for Good Samaritan’s annual Thanksgiving Giveaway.
  • Local Kiwanis Club honors Noblesville hero Jason Seaman
    11/14/2018 On Tuesday morning, the Noblesville Sunrisers Kiwanis Club recognized the heroic actions of Jason Seaman during the Noblesville school shooting on May 25 and honored him with the Robert P. Connelly medal of heroism. Seaman was presented the award during a ceremony at the Noblesville Boys and Girls Club cafetorium. This medal is one of the most prestigious awards given by the global volunteer service organization.
    Mr. Seaman was honored for his actions on May 25 when he placed his body in harm’s way to protect the students being confronted with gunfire in his Noblesville West Middle School classroom.  Jason was struck three times as he first distracted the student, then rushed him and was successful in disarming the young man. One student, Ella Whistler, was struck numerous times in the encounter.
  • Monon Trail Pedestrian Bridge Construction Begins
    11/14/2018 On Tuesday the City of Westfield broke ground on the new Monon Trail Pedestrian Bridge. The structure will span State Road 32 and a future extension of Tournament Trail near Wheeler Road in Westfield.
    “The Monon Trail is a huge asset in Westfield and this bridge will allow more people to use it unimpeded and safely,” said Westfield Mayor Andy Cook. “The bridge will also serve as an attractive gateway into the city.”
    When complete, the State Road 32 Bridge will be almost twice as long as the Monon Trail bridge at 146th Street. The City of Westfield received federal funding for the bridge project through the Metropolitan Planning Organization. The city paid its portion through impact fees. The project is anticipated to be complete late next summer.
  • Noblesville’s Ice Plaza at Federal Hill Commons Opens Nov. 17
    11/14/2018 The City of Noblesville is excited for the return of the Federal Hill Commons Ice Plaza and to offer residents an outdoor recreational activity this winter. The temporary ice rink, with real ice, will open at 11 a.m. Saturday, November 17 and will be open daily until January 7, 2019, except on Thanksgiving and Christmas days.
    “The ice skating rink was a big hit with families in its inaugural year. Due to the demand, we are building an even bigger rink for this season,” said Noblesville Mayor John Ditslear. “Federal Hill Commons was designed to be a year-round park. I believe the winter activities here and across downtown will drive even more residents to the heart of our city this holiday season.”
  • 11/13/2018 FISHERS – The Hamilton Southeastern girls’ basketball team posted its second game with 70 or more points this season after a 73-22 victory over Valparaiso in the Fishers Shootout on Saturday.

    Hamilton Southeastern victorious over Lake Central
    FISHERS – In more Fishers Shootout action, the Hamilton Southeastern girls’ basketball team grabbed a 68-37 win over Lake Central on Saturday.
    The Lady Royals ended the first quarter with a 24-8 lead and maintained the lead for the rest of the game. Hamilton Southeastern’s Amaya Hamilton led all scorers with 19 points in addition to 13 rebounds, three assists and one steal.
  • OUT IN THE OPEN- A Tale of Two Trips
    11/8/2018 I’ve been cloistered over the last few weeks and frankly, it was getting tiresome. That’s why, in the spirit of “All work and no play makes magazine editors go CRAAAAZZY!!,” it was high time to venture outdoors.
    My first outing was an auspicious occasion: the christening of our new boat. 
    Both regular readers know that I’ve had a lifelong love/hate relationship with watercraft. Now slightly past the half-century mark, I’ve nearly been struck by lightning once, almost drowned twice, been stranded in the middle of desolate lakes several times and smelled the cold breath of impending death on too many water-borne excursions to count. Fortunately, I’ve been wrong so far.
    At the other end of the scale, watercraft have been the centerpiece for many of the happiest moments of my existence. I’ve had a front-row waterside seat for dolphins, eagles, sea turtles, otters, manta rays, manatees and all manner of various other aquatic critters. I’ve shot “flying carp” with a bow in Kentucky, kayaked the Niagara River, spent a week paddling in the Boundary Waters and sailed a wooden ketch off Hilton Head Island. Along the way I’ve witnessed unbelievable sunrises, indescribable sunsets and floated along quietly at midnight, seemingly suspended among the stars of the universe. 
  • 11/8/2018 INDIANAPOLIS – The Westfield girls’ basketball team used a strong first half to defeat Lawrence Central by 12 points on Tuesday night, 54-42.
    Ashtin DeCraene led the Lady Shamrocks in points with 13 while adding four rebounds and one assist. Alyssa Crockett finished with 12 rebounds, six points, six blocks, five assists and two steals on the night.
    Westfield is off to a 3-0 start for the first time since the 2015-2016 season and will look to stay undefeated in a home matchup against New Castle today at 7:30 p.m.
  • Elizabeth Kepner Burkhardt
    11/13/2018 Elizabeth Kepner Burkhardt, age 87, of Cicero, Indiana passed away Nov. 8, 2018 at Sanders Glen in Westfield. She was born Apr. 8, 1931 in Noblesville to Frederick Christian and Edna Faye (Kepner) Heinzman.
  • Kathleen (Kathy) Marie Bowen
    11/13/2018 Kathleen Marie Bowen, 98, of Fishers, passed away on Sunday, Nov. 11, 2018. She was born to Claude and Dorothy (Seekins) Hinshaw Aug. 10, 1920.
  • 11/13/2018 Ruth M. Rasmussen, 90, of Noblesville, passed away on Monday, Nov. 12, 2018 at Harbour Manor Care Center in Noblesville. She was born on Nov. 30, 1927 to Arthur and Bernice (Breed) Gaubatz in Appleton, Wis.
  • 11/9/2018 The tragedy in Rochester is unimaginable – three siblings dead and another seriously injured.  These aren’t the only victims – their families, the bus driver and student witnesses, their schoolmates and teachers.  The ripple effects touch everyone.  
    While all fingers point to the truck’s driver, a major culprit goes unrecognized – Indiana’s morning darkness.  Sunrise on Oct. 30 was 8:15.  The children were struck at 7:15.  If Indiana was in its correct Central Time Zone it would have been light outside and the children would have been visible. 
    The solar divide between the Eastern and Central time zones runs 25 miles east of Columbus, Ohio.  In mid-1960’s Indiana’s time zone was re-designated from Central to Eastern but it was the adoption of Eastern Daylight Time in 2006 that caused the major shift in our sunlight schedule forcing children all over Indiana to travel to school in the dark. Students have been robbed, injured and killed by vehicles, and raped in morning darkness.
  • 11/5/2018 Dear Editor,
    With November 6th just around the corner, I wanted to take a moment to say why I’m voting in support of Miller Yes.  
    Our Noblesville students/children deserve the brightest and most creative professionals our educational institutions have to offer. With neighboring districts in Hamilton County paying teachers $5,000-$15,000 more per year, I’m not surprised to see a teacher shortage in the past two years in our district.
    Our teachers work tirelessly each day; concerned with appropriate grade curriculum, teaching lessons, making sure students aren’t falling behind in their coursework, classmate/friend disputes, etc.
  • 11/5/2018 Dear Editor,
    On November 6, 2018, the owners of Noble Industries plan to VOTE YES to the Noblesville Schools 2018 Operating Referendum Question.  
    Noble Industries has been in business since 1970 and typically we are ALWAYS for lower taxes. Lower business taxes help us create new jobs and continue to invest in new equipment and operational efficiencies. However without successful schools, the workforce suffers. 
    Paying teachers a competitive wage that matches or surpasses other school districts in the state and providing for the safety and security of our children are two areas in which we believe must be supported. We will trust that Superintendent, Dr. Beth Niedermeyer, the staff and School Board will act prudently and be frugal with the additional tax resources they are given.

  • 11/14/2018 A patient whose mother is having hearing difficulties asked me to write about the best way to choose someone to fit hearing aids. I’d like to begin with some background on hearing.
    It goes without saying that hearing is one of our most important senses. It is critical for our quality of life as well as for safety and social interaction. There are an estimated 30 million Americans who have some degree of hearing loss, 65 percent of whom are younger than 65 years of age. It’s very concerning that one in 14 younger adults and one in 20 adolescents have measurable hearing loss.  Since 1971, the number of Americans over three years old with hearing disorders has doubled.
  • Paula Dunn emerges from behind her book
    11/10/2018 Ever wonder who is Paula Dunn?
    You know, The Times columnist who peeks out over a book in her photo. 
    She writes about Hamilton County history in her weekly column called “From Time to Thyme.” And according to The Times’ People’s Choice awards, she’s readers’ favorite columnist.
    In Friday’s column, she announced that she’s written her first book.
    On Thursday, her first shipment of books, which will be officially released on Monday, arrived on her doorstep.

This Week's Events

11/13/2018
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.
