The Noblesville Times 24-7
  • 2/20/2019 Beginning this week, The Times is adding more pages, more content and more news you can use to the daily Online Edition.
    There will be a special page aimed at school-age children entitled Indiana Facts & Fun. It’s an award-winning project that focuses on a different Indiana county each week and helps students with reading, comprehension and math skills. On the other end of the spectrum is a weekly satirical take on horoscopes that gives readers a reason to chuckle. There will also be pages focusing on health, travel, food, business, gardening, opinion and more.
    Readers of The Times’ Online Edition will see these new pages beginning in the next few days.
  • Fishers FD to restore piece of department’s history
    2/20/2019 Earlier this week, Fishers firefighters took a piece of Fishers Fire Department history down from the grain silo, and will begin to restore it in anticipation of integrating it into the new fire station being built to replace current station 391, located at 2 Municipal Drive in Fishers.
    Firefighters removed an old siren that was used in the 1960’s and ‘70’s as a way to alert volunteer firefighters of an emergency.
    The population then, according to the US Census, was estimated at 344.
  • House advances Goodrich’s bill creating a senior-youth mentor pilot program
    2/20/2019 On Monday, the House of Representatives voted in support of legislation authored by State Rep. Chuck Goodrich (R-Noblesville) that would connect students and senior citizens in local schools through a pilot mentorship program.
    Goodrich said he was inspired to author the legislation following conversations with local residents who wanted to help after last year’s shooting at Noblesville West Middle School. Through the program, volunteers aged 55 and over would work with students in three school corporations, one urban, one suburban and one rural.
  • 2/20/2019 SERVE Noblesville will be back this summer, offering compassionate neighbors the chance to connect by improving their community from June 27 through June 30.

    The organization also is accepting applications now for the project leaders, volunteer groups and community partners that make this annual event possible.
  • 2/20/2019 Reconnecting to Our Waterways, also known as ROW, announced two grants awarded this month for community efforts to increase awareness and activities along Indianapolis’ waterways.
    ROW’s grant was awarded to non-profit advocacy organization, Friends of the White River. After nearly 40 years serving as river advocates, the group began hosting an online resource for locating access points and other information from their website in 2015, called the White River Guide. The ROW grant for $18,000 allows FOWR to undertake outreach and get input on how to create an even more interactive and robust tool for those seeking recreation, connection, water quality and fishing information, points of interest, and even entertainment opportunities, along the White River.
  • Brooks, Kilmer introduce fixes to ongoing veterans’ healthcare challenges
    2/20/2019 Representatives Susan W. Brooks (R-IN) and Derek Kilmer (D-WA), co-chairs of the Bipartisan Working Group, have reintroduced a bipartisan package of fixes to ongoing challenges faced by the Department of Veterans Affairs in delivering quality care to veterans.
    The solutions stem from a series of Government Accountability Office studies that uncovered problems at the Veterans Health Administration.
    Last Congress, members of the BPWG met with the GAO to learn more about their oversight of VA healthcare programs and the VA’s ongoing efforts to adopt best practices. So far, the VA has failed to fully implement hundreds of GAO recommendations for improving access to care and management of VHA facilities.

  • Mayoral candidate Mike Corbett announces ‘Ask Mike Anything’ campaign
    2/16/2019 Mayoral candidate Mike Corbett has made transparency and reconnecting City Hall with the people it serves the main principle guiding his campaign.
    To that end—and with the goal of meeting people where they are—a digital campaign was launched called ‘Ask Mike Anything’ that seeks to extend the opportunity that citizens had to submit questions directly to a candidate during Monday’s ‘Candidate Conversations’ event sponsored by the Noblesville Chamber of Commerce.
