  • Rollin Cutter, 81 today, celebrates 65 years since Milan Miracle of ‘54
    3/20/2019 Rollin Cutter was a sophomore on the 1954 Milan High School Indians basketball team 65 years ago today.
    Playing for injured starter, senior Bob Engel, Cutter was a 6-foot, 1-inch center who was a substitute picked for his size, ball handling, defense and rebounding.
    It was the final game of the Indiana High School Boys Basketball Tournament at Butler Fieldhouse in Indianapolis, with the small Milan underdogs playing the big Muncie Central Bearcats. 
    Cutter was put in the game in the second quarter and played all but the last two minutes of the fourth quarter.
  • ‘NobleMade’ is a winner in re-launch of gift shop
    3/18/2019 Our downtown Noblesville gift shop has re-launched with a new name.
    NobleMade gift shop officially opened with a ribbon-cutting celebration and open house on Friday afternoon.
    The new gift shop name was chosen from public input, after online voting. Other gift-shop name choices were Love Noblesville, Nothing But Noblesville and South Alley Shops.
    “‘NobleMade’ ended up being the clear winner. I think it’s perfect for everything we’re doing,” said Nickel Plate Arts executive director Aili McGill, during the open house. 
    The re-launched gift shop has 35 artisans represented, and 10 different organizations and businesses. “And we’ll know that’ll continue to expand,” she said. “We’re really proud of that.”
  • Remembering WWII veteran Stanley Robinson
    3/16/2019 World War II U.S. Navy veteran Stanley Robinson was always someone that I could count on seeing when I attended the Veteran’s Day and Memorial Day ceremonies at the Hamilton County War Memorial on the Courthouse Square in downtown Noblesville.
    He was a proud veteran, a past commander of the American Legion Post No. 45 and displayed the post number proudly on his Legion’s uniform cap. He would sit quietly listening to the ceremony in a metal folding chair placed in a row for veterans and their guests.
    The Noblesville resident served 1932-45, including 1941-45 on the U.S.S. Moffett destroyer, he told me just before his 96th birthday, when I featured him in May 2017 as one of our Faces of Hamilton County on the front page of The Times.
  • Second-graders learn Ag Day lessons
    3/15/2019 What do sheep eat? How many eggs do chickens produce in a year? And what’s the most important piece of gear when horseback riding?
    Those were among the questions asked by the more than 2,200 second-graders who descended upon the Hamilton County 4-H Fairgrounds Tuesday through Thursday for the 33rd annual Ag Day.
    In total, students from 17 public schools and two private schools in Hamilton County attended the day that had classes rotating to a different display or demonstration every 10 minutes in the morning and in the afternoon, all getting a lunch whipped up by Purdue Extension Service staff members.
  • Mayoral candidates focus on ‘Places and Things’
    3/14/2019 Noblesville Mayoral candidate Mike Corbett said the “Places and Things” theme of this month’s Candidate Conversations forum was an appropriate topic.
    “Because some of the places that we cherish and hold dear are under stress these days. Noblesville is unique because we have a sense of our heritage here that a lot of other communities don’t have,” he said. 
    “But we’ve seen what can happen when we aren’t vigilant. We lost our train. We’re about to lose more historic buildings downtown. We nearly lost a part of Seminary Park. We need to be careful that we don’t destroy the very thing that makes us unique,” said Corbett, as he introduced himself, one of four candidates, who offered opening statements on Monday night at the second of three Candidate Conversations forums put on by Noblesville Chamber of Commerce and Hamilton County League of Women Voters.
  • Thank a Journalist today for keeping you informed
    3/13/2019 I didn’t become a journalist to get rich or to be thanked. 
    I became a journalist because I liked collecting news, taking photos, writing stories and sharing it with the public.
    I liked writing about things that have happened and things that readers might not have known about already. 
    I liked interviewing people, listening to them share their experiences and crafting those experiences into a story.
    And I liked providing readers with information that they need to make decisions about their communities, their government and their lives. 
    As do most journalists.
  • Young ballet dancers earn invites to New York finals
    3/11/2019 Imagine studying ballet at a dance company here in Noblesville, and getting the opportunity to compete with young ballet dancers all over the nation and then earning an invitation to New York City finals this spring.
    En Pointe Indiana Ballet’s dance student Clark Rulon of Noblesville did just that when he was awarded second place in the Male Senior Classical category at the recent Youth America Grand Prix in Kansas City, Mo. He will travel to NYC for the finals April 12-19.
    That wasn’t the only award and invitation to NYC earned by dancers from Noblesville’s En Pointe Indiana Ballet school on Stony Creek Way.
    “We had a strong presence with 36 dancers,” said Anne Moore, who operates the business side of the ballet school. “Each of them contributed to our success as a school, and we are grateful for the opportunity to work with them.”
  • Once the ‘finest bank in Indiana,’ 1910 building will close in May
    3/9/2019 By now, most KeyBank customers have learned that their downtown branch will be closing at the end of May.
    Yes, it’s the handsome, limestone downtown Noblesville bank building that’s been on the bustling Courthouse Square, at Ninth and Logan streets, since before all of us were born.
    Customers received letters this week, announcing the news. The KeyBank branch located at 110 N. Ninth St., Noblesville would consolidate into the Riverview branch, 480 Sheridan Road, on May 31, 2019. At the end of February, the bank announced plans to close 16 branches in Central Indiana.
    While the bank promises that its team will continue to offer the same banking products, services and expertise at all of its banks, and that all accounts will automatically transfer, the bank’s physical presence will surely be missed in our downtown.
  • Genocide survivor shares horror with Noblesville seventh-graders
    3/8/2019 Kizito Kalima, standing 6 feet, 9 inches tall, towered over Noblesville East Middle School seventh-graders who came up to him for high-fives.
    Just moments before, the Rwanda-born Kalima, 39, shared his amazing story of survival of the Rwandan genocide 25 years ago.
    “Who’s 14 years old here?” Kalima asked the audience of more than NEMS 400 seventh-graders, mostly 12- and 13-year-olds, who filed into the schools’s main gymnasium and assembled on the bleachers to listen to Kalima’s story.
  • 10 local ways for kids to spend spring break
    3/7/2019 It’s already March and only 11 more days of classes until Noblesville Schools’ two-week spring break.
    For some, vacation plans have long been made to head out of town. For others, it’s a “staycation” at home, finding things to do here locally. 
    For us, camps where participants can learn something new have always been high among the choices. 
    Purdue Extension of Hamilton County’s annual one-day “I Can Do It Camp” was my daughter’s favorite spring-break camp when she was in fourth grade. It’s where she learned to knit, how to plant gardening seeds and how to make vegetable soup, all in a day.
