Mary Blake Brock is a Noblesville High School senior with a passion to make the world a better place.

She is immersed in school and community activities that inform, teach and provide services to all who are in need.

She has been student body president, speech team captain, on the Homecoming committee and court, junior class senator and a mentor to middle-school girls. 

She was a 2017 Hoosier Girls State recipient, placed seventh in Indiana for her speech about the heroin epidemic and earned the Levinson Lifetime Philanthropic Award of $10,000, which she dispersed into community organizations. 

The young woman is grateful to God and her family for all of the help along the way.

It’s not been easy, she said.

  • Area students celebrate their work in community
    5/21/2018 Food, feathers, photos and dancing filled the halls of Noblesville High School Friday as Noblesville School Project Work and Hamilton Boone Madison Special Services (HBM) held its end of the year celebration. 

    HBM and Project Work help students with disabilities gain vocational experiences outside of the school setting. 

    Throughout the year, 73 students from Sheridan, Hamilton Heights, Frankton, Lapel and South Madison high schools spent the year working with community partners like Chick-fil-A, Lowe’s Home Improvement and Kohl’s. 

    Barbara Smith, HBM transition coordinator, said these community partnerships allow the students to get the kind of hands-on learning they need.

    “That’s the best way for them to learn — by doing,” Smith said. “It makes a difference in their pride and just their ethic. Our local community partners ask me all the time, ‘Do you have more students like these guys because (they’re) a great worker?’”

  • Mayfest music concert a ‘powerful moment’
    5/19/2018 The culmination of skill, practice and unity was on full display Wednesday night at The Mill at Noblesville High School. 

    The Mayfest Music Department Concert -- NHS’s annual department concert -- brought together more than 650 students and several hundred in attendance. 

    “Our music department teachers spend so much time preparing students for band or choir or orchestra specific festivals, concerts and contests around and beyond the state of Indiana,” said Bethany Robinson, assistant band director at NHS. “So combining for one mass concert evening together is such a treat for the community to see a sample of the great work over the year in one place.” 

    The night opened with the symphonic orchestra, directed by David Hartman, performing “Hoe Down from Rodeo,” followed by the NHS Singers’ rendition of “Daniel, Daniel, Servant of the Lord.” 
  • Carpenter wins Indianapolis pole, Daly qualifies 33rd for 500
    5/21/2018 INDIANAPOLIS —Driving for his own team, Ed Carpenter qualified on the pole for the 102nd Running of the Indianapolis 500.

    Carpenter got in with an average of 229.618 mph with Team Penske’s Simon Pagenaud and Will Power filling out the front row. 

    On the other end of the field, 2016 Indianapolis 500 polesitter James Hinchcliffe was bumped from the field during Saturday’s qualifying, reporting a vibration with his car while on a warmup lap. Hinchcliffe would not make it back to the track because Dale Coyne Racing’s Pippa Mann was making her own attempt to bump her way back into the field. Mann would not succeed and her Donate Life Indiana Honda would miss the race.

    Noblesville native Conor Daly was at the same end of the field as Hinchcliffe, qualifying 33rd of 33 cars. The stressful part of the weekend, however, was Saturday.

    Daly had to make three qualifying attempts on Saturday and managed to become part of the field of 33. Daly qualified earlier that day with a four-lap average of 222.684 mph but that was not fast enough to make the field.
  • Millers take Hamilton County Tournament championship
    5/19/2018 More than a decade had passed since the last time Noblesville’s boys golf team tasted victory at the Hamilton County Meet — until Thursday. 

    Behind several clutch performances on the back nine, the IHSGCA No. 5 Millers pulled out a tightly-contested tournament at Bear Slide Golf Club in Cicero, finishing 3 strokes ahead of No. 6 Westfield, five ahead of No. 2 Carmel and seven ahead of No. 17 Guerin Catholic. 

    No. 18 Fishers, No. 20 Hamilton Southeastern, Hamilton Heights and University rounded out the field, respectively. 

    The finish on the par-70 course was so close that the teams had to wait until the final scores were posted to find out who had come away with a county championship. 

    “It’s really good to break through against such a quality field,” said Noblesville coach Gary Sewell. “We’ve come close, finishing second on a few occasions. It just seemed like it was always out of our reach — until this time.” 
  • Andretti quickest on Fast Friday, Daly 25th
    5/19/2018 INDIANAPOLIS — The final practice day before qualifying for the 102nd Running of the Indianapolis 500 is traditionally known as “Fast Friday,” and Andretti Autosport’s Marco Andretti was fastest of all 35 drivers with his quickest lap of 231.802 mph.

    Behind Andretti was Schmidt Peterson Motorsports’s Robert Wickens at 231.732 mph. Speeds were higher on Friday thanks to an increase in turbocharger boost pressure that will carry over to qualifying on today and Sunday.

    Andretti was happy with his car’s performance, especially considering he was fastest on Wednesday and third during Thursday’s session.

    “We've been feeling good actually, pretty good in traffic,” said Andretti. “Obviously the tow time shows that and the car is close in race trim. I don't know how much better we can get it.”
  • 5/20/2018 Thomas John Wise, 83, of Carmel, passed away on Saturday, May 12, 2018, at Magnolia Springs Senior Living at Bridgewater in Carmel. 

    He was born on Jan. 30, 1935, to the late Norman and Mildred (Kelly) Wise in Indianapolis.
  • 5/20/2018 Carolyn Jane Baliff, 80, of Cicero died May 19, 2018, at Prairie Lakes Health Campus in Noblesville.

    She was born March 18, 1938, at what was known as Big Springs, Indiana, that was located near Sheridan. 
  • Ralph Eugene Marvel
    5/17/2018 Ralph Eugene Marvel, 83, of Fishers, passed away on Wednesday, May 16, 2018, at Riverwalk Village in Noblesville. 

    He was born April 25, 1935, in La Porte, Indiana.
  • 5/18/2018 Dear Editor, 

    In the early 2000s, leaders in state government determined that the Indiana Department of Environmental Management should team with businesses to help protect valuable resources. A partnership – instead of strictly a punitive approach – has been successful.

    That is a lesson still being learned in Washington. Although regulatory efforts under the current administration are taking a more thoughtful tactic, one Indiana company is suffering from the actions of the prior regime at the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB).

    Navient, which services 12 million student loan customers, is based in Fishers with additional operations in Muncie. The company was sued by CFPB two days before President Obama left office. Richard Cordray had spent four years investigating Navient, citing it for “systematically and illegally failing borrowers.”

    No evidence to substantiate the claims exists. The company produced 450,000 pages of documents, hundreds of hours of phone recording and more than 30 written reports before charges were filed. 
  • 5/15/2018 Dear Editor, 

    For 15 years, I have been asking for the cooperation of our Noblesville City government to help alleviate the problem of speeding traffic on Hannibal Street between 10th and 19th streets. I have spoken to the city council, two police chiefs, two mayors, the captain of the patrol division and anyone who would listen. So far nobody has listened. I have received nothing but lip service from those we have entrusted with keeping our families and community safe. 

    I have spoken with almost all of my neighbors in the second ward area and many agree that this is a real problem. By the time drivers travel from 10th to 11th streets they are often exceeding the posted speed limit. When they come from the east, they will often be traveling 10 to 15 mph more than the posted 25 mph speed limit. 

    This is a residential neighborhood with many young children in the area. 

    The worst part is drivers are often traveling 35 or even 40 mph past the playground at Seminary Park and the mail trucks are consistently the worst offenders.
  • 5/6/2018 Dear Editor, 

    As we embark on the last week of this election, we wanted to share some things about our dad, Mitch Russell, with all of you. Our dad is hands down the best dad and Pappy anyone could ask for. 

    Our whole lives our parents have always been there for us no matter what the situation. They have loved us unconditionally, kept us on the right path and they inspire us to just be good people. As much as our dad has done for us, he has never been just our dad. He has always been the community’s dad. 

    Our parents took in anyone that needed a place to call home, even if it was just a few hours, and loved them just as they loved us. Our parents cooked them meals, coached them, gave them life advice and more importantly just let them know they were loved and what kind of person they could become.
  • 5/20/2018 The Legislative Council, on which I serve, recently met to assign topics for the General Assembly to study during the summer and fall months. Lawmakers will use this interim period to prepare for the 2019 legislative session and determine whether or not to pursue new laws based on their findings. These summer study committees play an integral role in the legislative process and help pave the way for lawmakers to address a variety of issues on behalf of Hoosiers. 

    Human trafficking is the fastest-growing criminal industry in the world. To build on the state’s ongoing efforts to end human trafficking and get victims the help they need, the Interim Study Committee on Corrections and Criminal Code will be looking at the feasibility of establishing a program for helping adult victims of human trafficking. This program could be similar to how the Department of Child Services handles young victims of this crime. Members of this committee will also be determining whether state agencies would be in the position to provide oversight and administer programs to stop human trafficking in Indiana. 

    Those serving on the Interim Study Committee on Public Health, Behavioral Health and Human Services will be conducting an in-depth study of medically supervised therapies involving marijuana. With 29 other states and Washington, D.C., allowing the use of the marijuana plant for medical purposes, many Hoosiers want to know what direction Indiana will take.
  • 5/20/2018 As we approach Memorial Day (remembrances to all those who gave the ultimate sacrifice), it’s time to start thinking about the dog days of summer. 

    Although I don’t see a significant number of heat-related emergencies in my office, many patients do end up in emergency departments suffering from heat exposure.

    Deaths from heat-related illness range from 300 to several thousand per year in America. The number is increasing with our warming climate and is markedly increased during heat waves. There are tens of thousands of visits each year to doctors’ offices and emergency rooms. 

    Risk factors that make one more prone to heat-related illness include being elderly, very young, or obese. Some prescription or even non-prescription drugs, particularly alcohol, cocaine, antihistamines, beta blockers, diuretics, ADD/ADHD medications and some psychiatric medications can increase the likelihood of heat illness. Workers, such as firefighters, who have to wear heavy clothing, are also at a high risk. 

    Absorbing too much heat from the environment or producing too much heat internally can lead to heat illness. The two main types of heat illness are heat exhaustion and heat stroke.
  • 5/18/2018 In a piece I wrote several years ago, I poked fun at people who do yoga. People doing yoga hate being poked — however, in this case, I was commenting on their preferred pants, made by a company named Lululemon. 

    The corporation had posted a warning on their website: “In some cases you may experience extreme sheerness, especially when bending over.” 

    I’m good with a warning label on my statins, but if my garment had side effects, I might want to reconsider the selection. 

    In that column, I also made fun of yoga, in general. In hindsight (ok, there’s a pun I didn’t plan), maybe I should have been less judgmental.

    I’m under fire again, after a recent column — this time about people who meditate. Here is an actual email I received:

5/22/2018
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.
