  • Attic ‘experiments’ with Agatha Christie play
    10/16/2019 The Attic Theatre has been dipping its toes in the water. And now it’s wading a little deeper, testing the waters even more.
    The Elwood-based theater -- which has for the past couple of years, ventured into Hamilton County to perform its productions, mostly at the Ivy Tech Community College Auditorium in Noblesville -- has a history of offering three or four performances, maximum, over one weekend.
    But this season -- which kicked off with Shakespeare’s “Twelfth Night” at Coxhall Gardens in Carmel -- is now going out of its comfort zone.
    The theater’s second show in the 2019-20 season, “Agatha Christie’s “And Then There Were None,” will take the stage six times over two weekends, opening Thursday and continuing through Oct. 26. Tickets are still available.
    Getting a little brave? Maybe.
  • 10/15/2019 “You’ve got to blow your own trumpet. You’ve got to toot, toot, toot your own horn.”
    Those are lyrics from a song that my daughter sang when she portrayed the Empress in The Belfry Theatre’s kids musical, “The Emperor’s New Clothes,” when she was 9 years old. She even got to carry the horn and make some noise out of it.
    While I’m not carrying my own trumpet, I am making some noise. 
  • Family Halloween Party, fall fests, corn mazes, more
    10/11/2019 It’s Friday, the last day before Noblesville Schools’ fall break.

    Here are 33 things to do, starting today.

  • NFD teaches kids about fire safety
    10/10/2019 Kids climbed on Noblesville Fire Department fire engines. They toured the NFD firehouse. And with the help of a firefighter, they used a water hose to spray a wooden house to put out a pretend fire.
    On Saturday, hundreds of families descended upon Station No. 71 for NFD Auxiliary’s annual pancake breakfast and fire station open house.
    Kids met and talked with Noblesville firefighters, and eagerly donned free red plastic firefighter hats, while families in need received free smoke and carbon monoxide detectors.
    It was good to see all of the families visit the downtown Noblesville firehouse on this beautiful Saturday fall morning.
    The annual breakfast kicked off National Fire Prevention Week, which is celebrated every year, during the week of Oct. 9, to help educate people about fire prevention and safety.
    While the breakfast and open house is the only public event this week, firefighters are busy all week long.
    NFD is doing two fire drills, one at Stony Creek Elementary and another at Refuge Christian Church.
  • Bethlehem UMC celebrating 175th
    10/9/2019 Bethlehem United Methodist Church members and friends on Saturday afternoon stood alongside Olio Road, just south of the roundabout at Hamilton Southeastern Parkway, waving motorists into their parking lot to receive free Bibles.
    The church was giving away 175 free Bibles in celebration of its 175th birthday. The official celebration is this weekend.
    Bethlehem, founded by pioneers in 1844, is the oldest continuous community of faith in Hamilton County.
    The church began as a “class” of the United Brethren Church with 18 charter members in 1844 and became part of the Evangelical United Brethren denomination in a 1946 merger. A second merger, in 1968, of the EUB with the Methodist Church produced the current denomination, The United Methodist Church. 
    “Our plan is to be here for another 175 years,” said Pastor Angela Gafford Asmus, who has served at Bethlehem UMC church for four years. The New Orleans native was a minister in Iowa before coming to Fishers, and in Texas before that. Her two daughters, Isabella and Evelyn, stood beside their mom, giving out Bibles, along with Max McCabe, Vivienne Kerwin, Laura Combs and Kay Martin. Marcia Stove stood at the north edge of the church property, closer to the roundabout, waving at every car.
  • 10/8/2019 Noblesville City employees who gathered in the municipal government building’s two-story foyer on Friday, quickly discovered that constructing a bridge and downtown cityscape from canned food items and other nonperishables brings out the creativity, but it’s not as simple a task as it looks.
    Just the day prior, thousands of canned food items were delivered to City Hall, with volunteers unloading the items in preparation for CanStruction Noblesville 2019.
  • First stamp issued in Noblesville
    10/5/2019 Writing about the First-Day Ceremony for the new Purple Heart 2019 Forever stamp earlier this week made me want to attend the dedication on Friday morning.
    Probably like most of our readers, I had never been to a First-Day Ceremony.
    So I drove to the Hamilton County 4-H Fairgrounds in Noblesville.
    While a stamp show is going on all weekend in the Exhibition Center on the Fairgrounds, this First-Day Ceremony pulled most of the guests into the Annex Building, which quickly filled to capacity with standing-room only.

  • City stamps rare opportunity
    10/3/2019 The U.S. Postal Service on Friday will release its newest Purple Heart Stamp, and Noblesville will play host to the first-day ceremony.
    The Purple Heart 2019 Forever stamp will be dedicated at an 11 a.m. ceremony at the Hamilton County 4-H Fairgrounds in Noblesville. The public is invited, and admission is free.
  • Daughter with Down syndrome inspires mom to start ‘Same as U’ nonprofit
    10/2/2019 Just weeks before Jennifer Sell gave birth to her middle daughter, she and her husband, Kerry, learned that their baby would be born with Down syndrome.
    “I was scared to death and thought, ‘Why me? Why us?’”
