  • Auto Reviews - 2019 Volkswagen GTI flies like a rabbit
    2/20/2019 A rabbit is a rascally creature, able to accelerate, turn, jump, and cuddle its bunnies virtually simultaneously.  It can park its tail almost anywhere, bulks up for winter, and really enjoys summers when it can run free with abandon.  Back in the 1970s, Volkswagen had a hopped up Rabbit that it showed getting air in a famous add with the line, “Fly GTI.”  The spirit of the creature, and the car, shine in the 2019 VW GTI Rabbit edition.

  • 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.”
  • 2/16/2019 Christianease, is the language that Christians use when they want you to know that they got it! They know what God desires and they go after “it”. The “it”, in this case is salvation, being saved, in other words, being assured that they will go to heaven. This type of Christian understanding is probably what is responsible for many people leaving the church. Let the hate letters commence, for I know that many will not agree. For the record, some of my best friends use Christianease, as well as some of my peers, excluding my fellow Lutherans. Please know that it is fine for us to agree to disagree.
  • 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.
  • 2/15/2019 Dear Rusty: My understanding is that once I’m on Medicare the HSA cannot be used. I have prescriptions that cost more with the Medicare Insurance than paying cash, so why can’t I use the HSA to pay for these types of prescriptions and for DME with prescriptions? Signed: Wanting to Know
  • 2/15/2019 Several years ago, while scrolling through the old newspapers on microfilm, I saw a notice in an 1880 Noblesville Ledger that “John Hoard, the colored man” had been elected constable of Noblesville by a “handsome majority.”
    That intrigued me because at the time I knew of only one African American who’d ever held an elected position in Hamilton County and that was the late Murphy White.
    Unfortunately, there weren’t enough details about Hoard in that small item to make a column, and in those days, trying to find biographical information on someone in the old newspapers was like hunting the needle in the haystack.
  • 2/14/2019 As February 14th approaches, it seems a cruel twist of fate that my little community recently lost the man who made Valentine’s Day special for so many, and was a true representation of love.
    He first came into my awareness twenty-five years ago when, as a visitor to a large church, I received a box of handmade chocolates. Upon expressing surprise, I was told the owner of the chocolate shop provided them as a welcome gift.
  • 2/14/2019 Yoga classes for bureaucrats. Brown snake eradication program. Congressional pensions. Pacific Coastal Salmon Recovery Fund. Those are actual lines in recent federal budgets totaling $150,000, $668,000, $38 million, and $65 million respectively.
    All are “chump change” compared to $363 billion (with a “b”) to be spent this year on interest on the debt. That’s $53 billion higher than last year, a 17% increase. Interest payments are now 8% of the budget and increasing, crowding out vital programs and priorities. 
    What do Americans get for $363 billion? Absolutely nothing. Interest is the price paid for decades of spending beyond revenues, as finance charges on credit cards pay for privileges to spend beyond one’s income.
