  • Feeding Families opens 2 more new food pantries
    7/2/2020 The other day when I drove past the Hamilton County 4-H Fairgrounds in Noblesville, I noticed that the bright yellow door on the Feeding Families Hamilton County pantry was wide open and no one was nearby.
    Being that I was traveling west on Pleasant Street, I motored around the roundabout and back to the main Fairgrounds parking lot, and I got out of the vehicle and closed the pantry door.

  • Sheridan, celebrated 100th 60 years ago?
    7/1/2020 Sixty years ago today I was on pins and needles because I was about to spend a week with my Sheridan relatives while the town celebrated its centennial.
    I wasn’t five years old yet and don’t recall everything about that visit, but I do remember the 1860s dress — complete with pantaloons — my mother made for me. You had to be properly attired if you wanted to be an official “Centennial Belle.” (I still have my certificate and Centennial Belle pin!)
    Sheridan celebrated its 100th birthday with an eight-day extravaganza, each day of which had a different theme.

  • Welcome, Red Truck Society
    6/30/2020 There are times when I just notice things.
    Recently, I was driving past my local golf course, and something unusual caught my eye. It wasn’t that the flagstick on hole No. 9 was left flat on the green. Occasionally, players forget to reinstall the pole. It’s bad golf etiquette, but it happens.
    It wasn’t that I could see a golf cart left unattended in the tall heather near the No. 1 fairway. Carts break down or run out of gas. It happens.

  • Generic or name brand medications: the real difference
    6/30/2020 This week I want to tackle the subject of generic vs. name brand medications. There are a number of reasons this topic is important. First of all, medications in general have become prohibitively expensive for many patients. Insurance companies are also pressuring patients and physicians to prescribe generics whenever possible to reduce health care costs. This is usually a good thing, with some exceptions.

  • Ready to celebrate with Stage 5, school, more
    6/30/2020 It’s already the last day of June.
    In just more than a month, on Monday, Aug. 3, students at Noblesville Schools will go back to class for a new school year.
    We’re not really sure how different that school will look this year. But we have a better idea, with Monday’s email to families from the district, which will provide both online and in-school face-to-face learning Monday through Friday.

  • Humane Society breaks ground  on $12 million facility in Fishers
    6/27/2020 Humane Society for Hamilton County president and CEO Rebecca Stevens cried tears of joy as she led a ground-breaking ceremony that attracted a huge crowd of animal lovers to celebrate the shelter’s new $12 million facility being constructed in Fishers.
    “So far, we’ve raised $12.5 million between cash and pledges. We’re still moving on to our $14 million total goal, because we want to be able to have at least $2 million in an operating endowment by the time this campaign’s done,” said Stevens, who sported a “Think Pawsitive” black T-shirt and black hard hat at the noon Wednesday groundbreaking..

  • Understanding the value of a good nap and an afternoon walk
    6/26/2020 Something curious is happening to me. It’s the opposite of what I thought would happen when I started spending so much time at home. I hope it’s not anything to be too concerned about, but I’m not napping as much as I used to. For most of my life, if I was on the couch watching a TV show, I’d nod off within five minutes.
