  • First time at tax sale?
    9/17/2019 “Buyer beware” is one of the bits of advice that Sadie Eldridge gave me when I walked into the Hamilton County Auditor’s Office in the Courthouse seeking information about this year’s annual Hamilton County Tax Sale.
    “If you’re there for property, it’s likely the wrong reason,” said Eldridge, the county’s lead real property deductions deputy. 
    This year’s tax sale is only two days away. It’s at 10 a.m. Thursday in the Commissioners’ (glass-windowed) Courtroom at the Hamilton County Government & Judicial Center in downtown Noblesville. 
  • Trends for Tails to open pop-up shop

    Trends for Tails Resale Boutique will have an even larger presence on South 10th Street in Noblesville when a new Trends for Tails Home Market pop-up shop opens on Thursday.

  • 9/13/2019 September is National Preparedness Month, and the Indiana Department of Homeland Security (IDHS) encourages Hoosier families to take the necessary steps to make sure households are prepared for all types of disasters.
    “Preparation can help mitigate the effects and stress caused by any disaster or emergency,” said David Hosick, communications director for IDHS. “Indiana is prone to many different types of severe weather all throughout the year. Taking the time to learn how to prepare for an emergency can greatly increase your chances of staying safe.”
    National Preparedness Month is the perfect opportunity for Hoosiers to learn lifesaving skills, such as CPR and first aid, how to check insurance policies for common hazards and how to make and practice a household emergency plan. Tornadoes, fires, snow and severe flooding are common occurrences to Hoosiers. Knowing how to stay prepared for these types of situations will not only minimize the effects, but also save lives.
    Some helpful safety tips to consider are:
    • Become aware of disasters that could occur in the local area. Learn what to look for and what to avoid in each 
    • Discuss possible emergency scenarios with family members. Include events such as fires, natural disasters and man-made disasters. Make sure everyone in the family or workplace knows the steps involved in responding to these 
  • 9/13/2019 I often think that my 13-year-old daughter is an old soul with a greater appreciation and understanding of things that might be dismissed by others her age.
    For instance, she would rather sit all day in front of a spinning wheel than in front of a TV playing video games.

    She was even more thrilled when we found an affordable Ashford single-treadle traditional spinning wheel for sale, along with a drop spindle and an array of fibers.
    Now, she can practice at home the spinning skills that she learns as a Conner Prairie youth volunteer spinner.
  • One of the Best!
    9/12/2019 The corn maze at Conner Prairie has been recognized with the 2019 USA TODAY 10 Best Readers' Choice award for Best Corn Maze, making it one of the top 10 attractions of its kind in the country. To celebrate the honor, Conner Prairie today unveiled the design of the 2019 corn maze, which is sponsored by Corteva Agriscience and will open to the public on Sept. 21. 
  • 9/11/2019 It was a busy week in Hamilton County, marred by the loss of a legend and more road construction.
  • Arcadia Depot invites community to help celebrate sesquicentennial
    9/11/2019 The Arcadia Depot has a special place in Toni Dickover’s heart.
    As she sits in the old train depot, built in 1869, pouring over old photographs and newspaper clippings, she loves hearing the train whistle as it rumbles through Arcadia once more.
    She is board president of Nickel Plate Heritage Railroad Inc. The organization owns and operates Arcadia Depot and is buying the train, the new Nickel Plate Express, which celebrates its first full year of operation with a birthday excursion on Saturday.
    “The depot has come a long way since it first began serving passengers in the mid 1800s. I am thrilled that the building still remains today, historically intact, thanks to the hard work of my Aunt Victoria and the rest of the Heritage Center,” Dickover, 72, Noblesville, said.
    Her aunt, the late Victoria “Tory” (Mosbaugh) Hope, was at the forefront of the group that stepped forward to save the depot.
    It was 1971, when Hope and other Arcadia residents learned that Norfolk and Western, current operator of the railroad line, had slated the building for demolition since it no longer served the line as a functioning depot. 
    The Arcadia train depot was, at one time, a bustling center of the town of Arcadia, seeing both passenger and freight traffic, with the train coming through at least four times a day.

  • 9/10/2019 A Fortville man was killed when the motorcycle he was riding left the road and hit a tree.
    Charles H. Theobald IV, a 45-year-old from Fortville, was traveling south on Southeastern Parkway in the far southeastern part of Hamilton County Sunday night around 9:20. The 2010 Harley-Davidson XL 1200 left the road on a curve and went down an embankment where it struck a tree.
    Medics attempted first aid treatment, but Theobald was pronounced dead at the scene. Toxicology test results are pending to determine if impairment contributed to the fatal crash. Theobald was not wearing a helmet at the time of the crash.
    The Hamilton County Sheriff’s Office Crash Team investigated. They said there were no witnesses and if anyone has any information to please contact them at (317) 773-1872.
  • Remembering ‘87 Lady Miller Krissi Davis
    9/10/2019 Many of us thought it was a bad dream when we heard that Krissi Davis died in her sleep on Friday night.
    She was senior captain for the Noblesville High School Lady Millers 1987 undefeated state champion basketball team.
    She was an Indiana All-Star, a two-time inductee into the Indiana High School Athletic Association Basketball Hall of Fame and a four-year letterman and two-time MVP for the University of Notre Dame Women’s Basketball Team.
    At NHS, she scored a school record 1,269 career points leading teams to 81-17 career record, including four sectionals, two regionals and a semi-state title, besides the state championship.. 
    While I never covered sports when I took a job at The Noblesville Ledger in 1986, I did remember Davis being on our Sports pages. 
    “Krissi Davis” became a household name when she led her team to the state finals, and probably even before that.
    For Chris Owen Mills of Noblesville, she first heard of Davis in fourth grade.
    “Our gym teacher worked at North Elementary and Forest Hill,” the 1987 NHS championship team player said on Monday. “He talked about how fast she was and good at sports. I had no idea how good until I met her in sixth grade.”
    But Mills doesn’t want Davis to be remembered “as just a great athlete.” But as a friend and mentor.
