  • In defense of Pollyanna, I’m proud to have a sunny outlook
    4/8/2020 I think Pollyanna might have gotten a bum rap.
    More than once in my life I’ve been accused of having a “Pollyanna attitude.” I didn’t actually know what this meant, except that it was not a good thing. Being “a Pollyanna” implied having an unrealistically sunny view of whatever was happening. Since Pollyanna and I had been linked so often, I thought I should finally read the book.
  • Auto Industry responds to Coronavirus pandemic
    4/8/2020 By Casey Williams
    As with most industries, COVID-19 is wreaking havoc with the auto industry. Virtually all plants are on pause, putting many thousands of workers on furlough. But, as in World War II, automakers represent vast manufacturing, engineering, and philanthropic capabilities that can be tapped for everything from face masks to ventilators and food programs. Here are examples of automakers doing their part in the current crisis.

  • Paula pays homage to 19th
    4/8/2020 I didn’t want to let Women’s History Month go by without noting that this year marks the 100th anniversary of the passage of the 19th Amendment which granted women the right to vote.
    With so many of the earliest local newspapers missing, it’s not clear exactly when the notion of women voting first popped up in Hamilton County. I can, however, tell you that a two-day “Woman’s Rights Convention” was held in Westfield in 1869. (1869!)
  • Trustee office, pantry close after today
    4/8/2020 To be eligible for Noblesville Township Trustee assistance, applicants must be a resident of Noblesville Township, in dire need of financial assistance or resources to cover basic living necessities, willing to utilize all resources available through other nonprofits and/or government agencies and willing to give back to the community through workfare (volunteer hours). To reach the Noblesville Township Trustee office, call 317-773-0249 or email info@noblesvilletownshiptrustee.com.
  • The season of sneezing is coming fast upon us
    4/7/2020 It’s once again time to run my annual column on allergies. Many of our readers are probably already cursing the annual return of allergy symptoms. The tree pollen levels in Indiana have already been at moderate to high levels. Spring allergy symptoms are making it even more difficult to differentiate who might have COVID-19 symptoms or just run of the mill allergy symptoms.
  • Boys & Girls Club connecting . . . virtually
    4/7/2020 It could be difficult for folks right now who rely on the Boys & Girls Club of Noblesville for everything from a safe gathering place after school to spring break camps and sports leagues.
    The Club is closed until further notice to the more than 2,400 members, many of whom consider the club their second home. It’s been closed since March 13, due to the COVID-19 (Coronavirus Disease) pandemic.
    The annual spring break Day Break Camps and Camp Crosser Camps are canceled, and refunds are in the mail. There are no spring youth volleyball leagues. No place to play pool, create art, work on computers or just have fun with your friends.
    But seeing the need for club activities, the Boys & Girls Club of Noblesville team has created and launched a new Virtual Clubhouse.
  • This may be the “Lentiest” of All Lents
    4/4/2020 Sunday is Palm Sunday, the beginning of Holy week. It is a week that many Christians observe with a certain solemnity. Many read devotions each day or find ways to walk the Stations of the Cross, attend a Passion Play, wash feet on Maundy Thursday, remembering Jesus’ last supper with his friends. We settle in on Good Friday, which marks the story of Jesus’ crucifixion and death, by fasting and prayer, grief and sorrow.
  • Elks raise $12K for student meals
    4/4/2020 It’s been nearly three weeks since Noblesville Elks Lodge No. 576 closed its doors until further notice, due to the COVID-19 (Coronavirus Disease) pandemic.
    But just a week before the closure, the Lodge had one of its most successful fundraisers ever, with more than $12,800 raised for charity.
    That benefiting charity was Fueled for School, which is using the money to purchase food in bulk for Noblesville school families in need.
    “It was perfect timing,” Lodge treasurer Dave Riddle said. “Timing was everything as this event might have had to be postponed if it was a week later.”
    He said, “The badly needed funds are much appreciated.”
    The Elks’ Fueled for School Challenge, a bowlathon, in its second year, took place at Bowl 32, which was a major contributor along with Wings Etc., Priority Risk Insurance and Dorsey Excavating.
    “Funds almost doubled from what was raised last year,” Riddle said.
    He said the Lodge was glad to help. The money meant even more since the pandemic “with the inability to assemble numerous volunteers due to limiting groups of more than 10,” he said.
  • In management or business, mind your P’s and Q’s
    4/3/2020 We’ve all heard the term, mind your P’s and Q’s, haven’t we?
    I’m not sure what it means, and extensive research (OK, I googled it) turned up a myriad of possibilities. It could have been a message to school children to pay attention since the “p” and “q” were basically mirror images of each other.
    Along those same lines, it might’ve been advice to apprentice printers for the exact same reasons.
  • Small businesses getting help and getting creative
    4/3/2020 Today is the deadline to submit applications for the Noblesville Small Business Resilience Grant.
    Noblesville Mayor Chris Jensen on Tuesday announced the grant program that would provide up to $10,000 per grant to small businesses that have been impacted by the COVID-19 (Coronavirus Disease) pandemic. The grant is based on demonstrated need.
    The program was introduced in one of several videos that Mayor Jensen has launched on social media during the pandemic.
    Actually, there have been a few nice videos featuring Jensen and the Jensen family.
