  • 3/25/2019 The City of Carmel Street Department has issued a list of paving projects for the 2019 summer construction season. Proper street maintenance is important to keep drivers safe, reduce damage to vehicles on the road, to keep commerce flowing and help keep property values high.
    Improvements to streets around the city have already begun. Many of the primary thoroughfares will be paved at night (between the hours of 6 p.m. and 6 a.m.) in order to be less disruptive for drivers. Streets within subdivisions will be paved during regular work hours. 
    “It is important to be reminded of the community’s need for these projects in order to keep our infrastructure well maintained. The quality of our streets is one of the many factors that make Carmel such a wonderful place to live and work. It is vital to our small business community, which relies on a good roadway network to get products and customers to their places of business. Repairing and maintaining our streets not only reduces damage to vehicles, but also enhances property values and makes our community safer,” said Mayor Jim Brainard.
  • 3/25/2019 On Thursday, the City of Westfield announced a third consecutive year in which its crime rate decreased. This is among the key findings in the Westfield Police Department 2018 Annual Report.
    “As a community, we can measure success in many ways and the safety and security of our community is the most important,” said Mayor Andy Cook. “Creating a safe community for our families is a priority in Westfield. The fact that our crime rate has gone down three years in a row while our population has gone up is a testament to the professionalism and commitment of the Westfield Police Department.”
    “I am so proud of the men and women of our team,” said Westfield Police Chief Joel Rush. “Their hard work and commitment to professionalism shows in the service they provide each day. We love serving the people of Westfield and appreciate the overwhelming support we receive.”

  • Lions dodgeball games bring in $7K for charities
    3/25/2019 Watching Noblesville Lions Club’s dodgeball tournament this month got me reminiscing about elementary school.
    Dodgeball was one of my favorite activities in grade school. But I wasn’t very good at it. And I surely wouldn’t have the courage to play on a team, in front of anybody I know.
    I applaud the 14 teams -- nine in the recreational league and five in the competitive league -- that played in the Lions’ tournament in front of a cheering audience of friends, families and coworkers.
    Even though every team wanted to win for the bragging rights, they all had a great time raising money for Lions’ charities.
    The tournament, in its second year, netted about $7,000, an increase of $2,000 over the first year, event organizer Dave Marsh said this weekend. The $5,000 raised from the 2018 tournament was used to support 31 different charities of the Noblesville Lions.

  • City ‘Making Moves’ to inform public with Noblesville NOW communication plan
    3/23/2019 As construction begins on more Noblesville NOW projects, the City of Noblesville has created “Making Moves,” a robust communications plan to share progress reports and updates. The initiative is an ongoing effort that will better inform the public about these transformative projects.

  • School celebrates fundraising with pie in teachers’ faces
    3/23/2019 Hazel Dell Elementary School physical education teacher Doug Atkinson took a pie in the face again and again on Friday afternoon alongside his fellow teachers.
    The pie-throwing was part of the school’s annual Jump Rope for Heart event that raised nearly $21,000 for the American Heart Association and had Indy 11 soccer players and mascots joining the part as guests.
    Over the past almost 20 years, the school has raised almost $350,000, Atkinson told the cheering student body, who eagerly awaited the pie throwing. 
    In the meantime, students were entertained by Indy Eleven soccer coach Martin Rennie (from Scotland), mascot, Zeke, and players Karl Ouimette and Tyler Pasher, who encouraged students to eat healthy, gave out high-fives and showed off their soccer-handling skills.
