The Noblesville Times 24-7
  • Let’s abide by the governor’s orders
    3/28/2020 We’re all in this together.
    So let’s please be nice to one another, while abiding by Gov. Eric J. Holcomb’s executive orders.
    This week, I saw on a Noblesville Facebook group that someone had the boldness to snap photos of shoppers wearing masks, then blast them on how they shouldn’t be wearing masks when others in the health field needed the masks.
  • Adoptions cease, shelter has set hours for fostering, intake
    3/27/2020 Many of you may be enjoying more life with the family since the Governor’s recent executive order to “Stay at Home.”
    And often that home life includes a furry friend or two to keep you company.
    In fact, 67 percent of households in the nation, or about 85 million families own a pet, according to the 2019-2020 National Pet Owners Survey conducted by the American Pet Products Association.
    About 48.2 million households own dogs and almost 32 million households own cats, according to the most recent report of the American Veterinary Medical Association.
    And as you’re enjoying time at home with your pet, you may have also been wondering about the shelter animals’ needs at the Humane Society for Hamilton County.
  • Teacher parades show support for their students
    3/26/2020 Everybody loves a parade. Especially elementary school students who adore and miss their teachers.
    Noblesville elementary school teachers and staff this week decorated their vehicles, waved handmade posters and honked their horns at their students, who smiled and waved back at them, some with their own posters.
  • Superintendent sympathetic to effects of closure
    3/25/2020 All Noblesville Schools’ activities, trips and events have been canceled through at least May 1, including prom.
    Yes, it’s sad for students, particularly seniors.
    District Superintendent Beth Niedermeyer meets with her leadership team, sometimes several times a day, to address the rapidly changing environment.
    If students return to classes in May, there is still a possibility of a high-school spring dance, she said.
  • Conner Prairie still changing the world
    3/24/2020 Just 15 days ago, my Conner Prairie youth volunteer daughter was dressed in her 1836 costume and headed to Conner Prairie to appear in a tourism video for the Fishers museum.
    The same week, Youth Leaders decided to cancel a couple of non-public youth events, that included spinning at the museum’s textile studio and a field trip, because of the COVID-19 (Coronavirus Disease) pandemic.
    It wasn’t long until youth volunteers were informed that Conner Prairie would close public programming for the next couple of weeks.
  • 20 things learned at the Taste
    3/21/2020 I started this column the day after the Noblesville Chamber of Commerce Taste of Business.
    That was a week ago.
    But I left off in the middle of writing because of all of the news about the COVID-19 (Coronavirus Disease) pandemic.
    I want to share more about the event because Noblesville Chamber of Commerce always has Noblesville’s best interest at heart.
  • Nothing to do? I beg to differ
    3/20/2020 I usually try to write a weekly things-to-do column. I like to offer folks a roundup of what’s happening in and around Noblesville and Hamilton County.?It’s become a little difficult this week as we’re settling in to a new norm.
    In fact, this is quite an unusual time.
  • What’s not canceled? Spending time with family
    3/19/2020 This is quite an unusual time.I looked through my calendar, and there wasn’t much of anything that wasn’t canceled, postponed or closed.Then I saw a Facebook post today that read: “Going outdoors is not canceled, listening to music is not canceled, quality time with our families is not canceled, reading a book is not canceled, sharing with friends is not canceled, singing out loud is not canceled, laughing has not been canceled, sharing hope with others has not been canceled.
  • Fueled for School shifts into high gear
    3/18/2020 The Fueled for School program serving Noblesville School was started more than two years ago by some teachers and volunteers who were looking for a way to end food insecurities for the district’s students.
    Donated food was packed on Wednesdays, meal packs went out to the schools on Thursdays, and the food was discreetly distributed to the students on Fridays to take home for the weekend.
  • 3/13/2020 

    The spread of the COVID-19 (Novel Coronavirus disease) has quickly had an impact on our lives. While school was in session today, it was the last day before spring break that students would come to school. 

    Based on the guidance and collaboration with all other Hamilton County school districts and the Hamilton County Health Department, Noblesville Schools announced at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, in an email to parents, that all schools would close beginning on Monday. Then, from Tuesday through March 27 -- nine total days -- Noblesville Schools will initiate extended eLearning days, which allow students to communicate with teachers and staff during days that school buildings are closed. (Indiana Gov. Eric Holcomb on Thursday evening also announced granting schools a 20-day waiver of the requirement for 180 instructional days,)
