  • 40 fun things to do locally
    9/25/2020 Fall is here, and it’s the final weekend in September. So let’s make the most of the beautiful, warm days.
    Today is the final Food Truck Friday and Saturday is the final night for the Saturday night free rock concert at Federal Hill Commons in Noblesville.
    These are among 40 things to do this weekend and beyond.
    Here’s my list:

  • Running commentary and a running joke
    9/25/2020 I run five miles a day, but those who have observed me in action question the use of the word “run” and even the word “action.” The baby steps I take—as opposed to a long athletic stride—have resulted in some significant mocking. I now wonder whether my plan to win the Mini Marathon should be removed from my bucket list.

  • 70s include handful of all-time great Boilermakers

  • Slippery slopes threaten much of what we hold dear
    9/24/2020 When I was a kid, I used to love winter – hey, didn’t say I was smart. We used to spend hours sledding at Forest Park after a good snow – truth is we would have stayed even longer, but for all the few seconds of thrills we got going down, we faced the drudgery of the long climb back up.
    The problem was there were so many kids that the snow off to the side got packed down from trudging up the hill in big ol’ boots. Stomp, stomp, stomp over the snowy incline. Eventually the snow gave way to a hard, slick surface.

  • Connie Lawson confident in election process
    9/24/2020 An edgy America has been warned by its president that the coming election will be “rigged” and “fraudulent.” U.S. intelligence and congressional sources say that nefarious foreign sources are seeking a redux of the 2016 interference, with FBI Director Christopher Wray specifically naming Russia this week. And there has been widespread media speculation that a winner in the presidential race may not be known for days, or even weeks after the Nov. 3 election.

  • It’s Millers’ Black and Gold week
    9/24/2020 It’s Noblesville Homecoming Week, but it sure doesn’t feel like it, due to the COVID-19 (Coronavirus Disease) pandemic.
    While schools are having spirit dress-up days -- such as Tacky Tourist Day on Tuesday at Noblesville High School -- there is no class float building this week, no early release on Friday and no Homecoming Parade.

  • A little White River Township history
    9/23/2020 By Paula Dunn
    You may have noticed I don’t write about White River or Wayne Townships very often.
    It’s not an intentional slight. The problem is, they have fewer residents than the rest of the townships in the county, which makes it more of a challenge to come up with column ideas featuring them.

  • Season to open at new Westfield Playhouse
    9/23/2020 Opening night is almost here for the first season at the new Westfield Playhouse.
    While there is still much to do before the Playhouse is considered a “fully functional theater,” the four-act drama, “Hedda Gabler,” opens Thursday with “elaborate set, full lights, extensive costumes and the like.”

  • A lovely treat of more dog stories
    9/22/2020 It seems I have acquired a reputation.
    I have been handing out dog treats for three months. Every day, I take the same trail, and every day, I meet many of the same customers. Dogs have an amazing memory when it comes to getting a treat—particularly from a stranger.

  • 2020 Ford Transit 150 is fit for the entire crew
    9/22/2020 By Casey Williams
    When I knew this van was coming for a review, I thought I’d be courteous, drive it home from work and park it in the driveway until I was ready to review it. I had no plans of actually committing to morning commutes in this thing. That would be beyond silly. But, as I was driving home, something strange happened. I really started to like it. I mean, for a big cargo van with a few extra seats, it drives quite nice. A couple of key enhancements for 2020 will make fans of the van even happier.
