  • Rambling thoughts on Thanksgiving
    11/25/2020 Tomorrow is the day some of us typically leave adulting behind for a bit. I say some because unlike me, many of you are mature. In addition, and much more importantly, a lot of good folks will be working tomorrow – including first responders who deserve far more than just our giving thanks!

  • "Pawsing" to count my furry blessings
    11/25/2020 I didn’t intend to write another Thanksgiving column about how grateful I am for the felines in my household, but the truth is, when I start counting my blessings, Beau and Peyton are right up there at the top of the list.
    In a year most of us wouldn’t mind forgetting, my furry little boys have had me smiling more often than not, and sometimes even laughing out loud.

  • Safety is greatest priority for newest Belfry director
    11/25/2020 I think we all know that we can’t safely crowd, elbow to elbow, into the small, 104-seat Belfry Theatre this season during the COVID-19 Coronavirus Disease) pandemic.
    That’s why the Noblesville Theater in its 56th year has moved all of its productions temporarily to Celebration Hall at Noblesville First United Methodist Church. And even though the venue is very grand and can seat 500 to 800 people, only 50 tickets will be sold for each performance for ample social distancing, as mandated by Indiana Gov. Eric Holcomb.

  • Red Stocking donors are in the giving spirit
    11/24/2020 A lot of things in our daily lives have changed this year. 
    But one thing that hasn’t changed is the generosity of folks in Noblesville who give to Tri Kappa sorority’s annual Noblesville Red Stocking Fund.
    Every year in November, Tri Kappa asks us at The Times newspaper to partner up in the promotion of the Beta Epsilon chapter’s annual Red Stocking Fund drive.

  • John is over Thanksgiving – almost
    11/24/2020 I’ve mentioned before how much Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday.
    Oh, I suppose you can buy into the new argument of how the Pilgrims’ arrival to the Americas shouldn’t be celebrated. How they brought European diseases to the indigenous peoples. How they wiped out entire nations. How they exploited the tribes.

  • Erika’s, Courtney’s Kitchen among comings and goings
    11/21/2020 It’s been a year of comings and goings.
    Restaurants coming and going and merchants coming and going.
    Recently, I learned that Noblesville siblings Carrie and Cass Courtney would be closing Courtney’s Kitchen on Logan Street across from the Hamilton County Government & Judicial Center.

  • About ‘registering’ for Social Security, Medicare
    11/21/2020 Dear Rusty: I have a big 65th birthday coming up mid-March and would like your advice on registering for Social Security and Medicare. I am now unemployed, but I am seeking another gig to get me to age 67 before taking Social Security. Signed: Wondering Senior

    Dear Wondering: You do not need to “register” with Social Security in advance. You don’t need to do anything with Social Security until you are ready to claim your benefits.

  • Figure out who not to hire
    11/20/2020 We hear horror stories these days when it comes to hiring. The most common is that employers can’t find applicants to fill openings. But we also hear that people accept jobs and then don’t show up. Or worse, they show up at the appointed day and hour but quit somewhere between the first break and lunch.
    Holy cow! How did we get here?

  • Change can come quickly with no warning
    11/20/2020 EDITOR'S NOTE: This is a weekly column from Hamilton Heights Superintendent Dr. Derek Arrowood. All Hamilton County school superintendents are invited to send The Times similar routine messages. To do so, please contact our publisher at ttimmons@thetimes24-7.com

    The fact that we know the only constant is change doesn’t necessarily make change any easier.

  • Purdue basketball’s Matt Painter won’t sell Boilers’ soul
    11/20/2020 This recent comment by Purdue basketball coach Matt Painter about his highly regarded recruiting class of Caleb Furst and Trey Kaufman-Renn almost slipped past me.
    “Hopefully they’ll help us win a Big Ten championship and have success in the NCAA tournament and get to a Final Four,” Painter said. “But also get a great education and not lose our soul in the process.”
