  • 2018 was ‘awesome,’ 2019 will be ‘even better’ in downtown Noblesville
    2/16/2019 A Sip & Shop night, Craft Beer Crawl and Spring Break Stay-cation activities are among Noblesville Main Street’s new events planned for downtown this year, adding even more things to do to the already-busy calendar.
    Main Street executive director Lorna Steele looked back on 2018 successes and ahead to the 2019 events during Main Street’s annual breakfast meeting on Friday at Forest Park Inn.
    An enthusiastic Steele said, “2018 was awesome. 2019 is going to be even better.”
  • No newspaper, school, but still things to do on Presidents’ Day
    2/15/2019 Monday is Presidents’ Day, a federal holiday celebrated on the third Monday of February.
    The day honors presidents of the United States, and is one of 10 U.S. legal federal holidays.
    For us at The Times, it means no newspaper or no mail delivered by the U.S. Postal Service.
    For schools, it means various things. While Noblesville, Carmel Clay and Hamilton Southeastern schools are closed Monday in observance of Presidents’ Day, Westfield Washington and Hamilton Heights schools will use the “Flex Day” to make up a previously missed day of school. Sheridan Community Schools will have an eLearning day to make up for the weather cancellation day on Feb. 1.

  • Getting to know our mayoral candidates
    2/13/2019 It’s the first time in a while that we have an open primary for Noblesville mayor.
    There is no incumbent. No heir to the throne. Just four candidates who have filed to run for the office. 
    That’s how mayoral candidate Julia Church Kozicki summed it up as she introduced herself, the fourth and final candidate, who offered opening statements on Monday night at the first of three Candidate Conversation forums put on by Noblesville Chamber of Commerce and Hamilton County League of Women Voters. 
    Mayor John Ditslear, who was first elected as mayor in 2003 and re-elected to his fourth consecutive four-year term in November 2015, will not seek re-election and plans to retire. 
    His departure leaves the mayor’s office open for a new mayor to serve our City.
  • Anyone for Club basketball and some Kiwanis pancakes?
    2/11/2019 If you want to see some good, competitive basketball, stop in at the Boys & Girls Club of Noblesville most any weeknight.
    It’s that time of year, when the Club’s youth basketball program is in full swing, with games four nights a week.
    This year, there are nearly 400 kids from kindergarten through Grade 8 in the youth basketball league that involves both basketball and cheerleading programs.
    In basketball, there are 40 teams playing weekly at the Club’s Community Center. Each of the teams is sponsored by a local business with that business’ name printed on the back of the jerseys.
  • NPD building bridges with the community
    2/9/2019 Thursday’s Noblesville Police Department awards—including three medals of valor, four lifesaving awards, a Purple Heart and distinguished service awards—got me thinking more about our officers of the law.
    And how they protect and serve us and connect with our community here in Noblesville.
    Less than a month ago, I wrote about NPD’s Coffee with a Cop, which has moved around to different venues each month since October 2017.
    “Keeping our folks connected with our community is why we do so many of the things that we do,” said NPD Chief Kevin Jowitt. “It’s so important for us, every officer in our department, to be interactive with the community.”
  • North Elementary to benefit from new fundraiser
    2/8/2019 While I love every Noblesville school that my 12-year-old daughter has attended, I must say that North Elementary has always been close to my heart.
    It’s where my daughter attended her kindergarten year and, after redistricting a couple of times, returned for her third-, fourth- and fifth-grade years.
    We loved the teachers, the principals and the programs in which she participated. She played in music teacher Janine Krent’s fourth-grade hand chimes choir and gained broadcast experience as a news anchor, live streamer, videographer and director for the school’s daily morning news broadcast her fifth-grade year, the same school year that we were blessed with co-teachers Melissa Jones and Dave Kimmel. And for two years before that, our wonderful teacher Ginger Jimenez looped with her third- and fourth-grade classes.
  • Westfield Playhouse uncovers ‘Perfect Crime’
    2/7/2019 Westfield Playhouse show director Cheryl Fesmire has never spent so much time with actors, dissecting, uncovering and understanding all of the complexities of a play, until “Perfect Crime.”
    She knew it would be a complex play when she submitted it, along with two other plays, to the playhouse for the 2018-19 theater season.
    The mystery-thriller, by Warren Manzi, opens Friday and continues for three weekends at Westfield Playhouse. 
    The play tells the story of Margaret Thorne Brent, a Connecticut psychiatrist and potential cold-blooded killer who may have committed "the perfect crime.”
  • Fishers senior is DAR Good Citizen of the Year
    2/6/2019 Maddie Butler said her parents instilled in her the desire to help others.
    “Service is a big value in our family,” said Maddie Butler, a Fishers High School senior who started volunteering in fifth grade for School on Wheels, an after-school tutoring program for Indianapolis Public Schools. 
    Once a week, she tutored students affected by homelessness and who needed help with their schoolwork.
