  • There has never been a better time to resist and reset for Lent
    2/22/2020 There has never been a better time to resist and reset for Lent
    Realizing that it might sound like a TV ad, “There has never been a better time for Lent,” seems to be my ear worm. My heart is crying out for peace. The contempt in the air is palpable. The us versus them mentality pervasive, the he said, she said sexual abuse stories, partisan politics, gun violence, and everything social media, seem to be a deafening sound that will not be quelled by normally sane people.
  • “Got Milk?” a ritual for communication and transition
    2/22/2020 This week, I received the much anticipated announcement that, once again, I was “not selected” as the winner of the Erma Bombeck Writing Competition. I don’t feel too badly because every year that I lose (and it has been many, many years) it is to some of the finest writers and humorists I have the pleasure of reading.
    Also, I am secretly happy when the announcement is made, and my essay is free to publish elsewhere. It makes for an easy week as a newspaper columnist.

  • You don’t want to turn into a weather forecaster
    2/21/2020 Not too long ago, it was a Thursday I think, TV weather people started sounding the alarm . . . snow, freezing rain, wind, ice. You know the drill.
    Schedules started going in the toilet. Schools, businesses, churches, everyone started canceling. Milk and bread disappeared from the grocery store shelves faster than a brownie on my kitchen counter . . . you know the drill.
  • Watt an experience it is shopping for others
    2/21/2020 I hate going shopping for my wife. I don’t mean searching for a gift; I’m talking about running an errand. I never, ever find exactly what she wants, and I often bring home the wrong thing. Then I have to go back to the store. I can’t even get milk right.
  • Sweet sounds of success
    2/21/2020 Any parent who has had a son or daughter in show choir knows about the long hours during competition season.
    It’s my second year as a parent of a show-choir student at Noblesville East Middle School.
    And it’s been another amazing year, with much more to come this season.
  • ‘Emma,’ Miller Palooza, more this weekeend
    2/20/2020 The Attic Theatre’s cast of 20 will bring to the stage Jane Austen’s “Emma,”about a young woman who attempts to play matchmaker in a small English town, opening tonight at The Auditorium at the Annex at Ivy Tech in Noblesville.

  • Paula shares feedback
    2/19/2020 It’s another reader feedback week!
    I’ve gotten more responses about the old telephone exchanges than anything else in the past several months.
    Judith Stanley Shuck emailed that her great-grandfather organized the first phone company in Westfield. (I believe that would have been Irvin Stanley, who, according to the Westfield history book, established the White Star Telephone Company in 1901.)
  • Re-branded thrift store to reopen as NobleCause
    2/19/2020 A volunteer steamed wrinkles from clothing while another volunteer made sure toys had batteries and were in working order. Volunteers bagged up worn clothing to donate to groups. And put summer sandals in a box labeled for the season. They took home children’s clothing to wash and iron. They looked up resale prices of antique dishes.
    In another part of the building, volunteers unpacked bakery items donated by the Hazel Dell Kroger Store and stocked shelves with items purchased at wholesale prices at Meijer.
  • Driving over Christmas holiday shows the 2020 Ram Rebel is a suave brute
    2/19/2020 By Casey Williams

    Over the recent Christmas holiday, I had the good fortune of driving the Ram 1500 Laramie Longhorn with an optional diesel engine. And, last week, I drove the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited with the same engine. One was crafted with luxury while the other was built to tackle tough rough trails. But, what if one truck could be both luxurious and capable – all with the same diesel engine? It would be a suave brute like the 2020 Ram 1500 Rebel.
