The Noblesville Times 24-7
  • 1/17/2018 Keeping in mind the constantly changing national news – by the day or even the hour – I would like to put forth some thoughts based upon my own ideological frame of reference:
  • 12/21/2017 It is hard to imagine anyone taking the place of State Representative Kathy Richardson.  Rep. Richardson is a fierce champion for her constituents and for her hometown - Noblesville.  As we look at next year’s election to replace her, it is imperative that we entrust the seat to someone who, like Kathy, knows Noblesville and the unique issues our city faces.  Greg O’Connor, our fellow common council member, is that person.  
  • 12/21/2017 In an announcement Wednesday, the Noblesville Parks Department revealed that they voted not to renew their lease of property within Forest Park to the Indiana Transportation Museum (“ITM”). Our group is very disappointed, albeit not surprised, to learn of Wednesday’s display of continued political maneuvering aimed at further eroding and degrading the continuity of the Nickel Plate railroad throughout Hamilton County and Central Indiana. It’s especially disappointing after considering the Rail to Trail Conservancy’s report on Rails with Trails; which clearly depicts the combination as one of the best solutions for developing trails along active rail corridors.
  • 11/21/2017 

    Don Jellison became the sports reporter during my second or third year of coaching at Noblesville.

    He did a tremendous job of reporting all sports. He never demeaned me, or my players, rather he built us up.

  • 10/27/2017 My eighty-four-year old mom moved from her home into assisted living. We needed help with the expenses involved in her daily care. Since my father served in the Army for many decades, we investigated Aid and Assistance benefits. Over and over, we had to supply various pieces of paperwork that we had already sent. Our records were misplaced within the Veteran Assistance systems. Paperwork bounced back and forth between several cities, and finally we turned to Senator Todd Young's office for hope.
  • 10/25/2017 As a member of the federal community who served our country for years, I am deeply concerned that my hard-earned benefits will be cut to offset proposed tax policy changes. I ask my representative and senators to oppose such cuts to the federal community.
  • 10/17/2017 I guess as a voter and taxpayer I should not be surprised by this proposed fairy tale called a 2018 budget as was introduced recently on 1st reading to the city council.

    Am I the only concerned taxpayer who has many questions regarding the "Shell" game being offered as a budget for Noblesville in 2018? The discussion in the October 13th Reporter presented by the hired Controller Spalding / city employee and mayor designate was not acceptable.
  • 10/17/2017 I believe the second amendment needs to be evaluated not replaced. At the time the second amendment was authored our country was 90 percent wilderness, the most sophisticated weapon was a single shot muzzleloader. This was a smooth-barreled weapon, no rifling, that you could not hit anything with at a distance of 20 yards. We also thought the British might return.
  • 8/16/2017 This paper recently published a letter from oil lobbyist Maureen Ferguson attacking Indiana farmers and ethanol producers. I'm a farmer, and I want you to know the oil lobby is flawed in its arguments.

    Her claims that corn used for ethanol increases the cost of food has been proven false. Food is cheaper.
  • 8/9/2017 The goals of the Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS) are well-meaning, and so are the farmers involved in producing corn-based ethanol.

    But the damage caused by unsustainable ethanol mandates is so significant and widespread that environmental groups, restaurant and grocer associations, automobile manufacturers, and producers of poultry, pork and beef are just a few of the groups that have joined the oil and natural gas industry in speaking out.
  • 7/24/2017 People identify themselves with circles of connections. Are you a cat person or a dog person? Are you an IU fan or a Purdue fan? Save the Train or Pull the Rails and Build the Trails?

    The latter circles are the ones I want to focus on for today. Time has a funny way of changing things. Paint fades. Sidewalks wear down. Technology changes. Hairlines recede and skin wrinkles. Roads get wider and traffic gets heavier. Attitudes and perspectives change.
  • 7/24/2017 Fellow Hoosiers,

    As I've traveled across Indiana these past weeks, many of you have asked me about the federal health care debate. You want to know how legislation may affect us, especially those who rely on Medicaid, our HIP 2.0 program or the federal insurance exchange. You've asked about the potential gaps that could be created by reduced federal funding.
  • 7/5/2017 I enjoy the Times but was appalled and extremely disappointed that you made the decision to run a large color photo of the disgrace in last year's Sheridan parade.
  • 6/27/2017 It's time to stop the verbal hate remarks toward our president, his family and his administration. It's time to stop the hate rallies in cities by people who oppose the election of our current president.
  • 6/25/2017 The Noblesville Lions Club would like to thank our loyal customers for supporting our recent Pork Chop BBQ and Pancake Breakfast. We would also like to thank all the businesses that purchased tent ads and the businesses and individuals that donated items for our successful silent auction. This is our major fund raiser and allows us to help many groups and individuals.
  • 6/24/2017 I would like to share a story that took place over the course of a couple of days last week that involved a few extraordinary people in your community.
  • 6/24/2017 This past weekend, a large branch fell from one of our trees and was cut up for disposal along with some shrubbery and wood debris. Our curb area was completely filled with this material.
  • 12/21/2016 Dear Editor

    The Indiana General Assembly and new Governor Holcomb's Administration begin next month. Investments will be prioritized and probably limited based upon predicted tax revenue. One investment that should make the list is the medical care of our Veterans. Traumatic brain injury / post traumatic stress injury (TBI-PTS) is the most significant issue facing Veterans today; thousands of Hoosiers have this. The current VA care is NOT working! How can we change this?
  • 9/8/2016 Dear Editor

    (On July 3, 2016), my pastor message was "Is it too late for America?"

    With all that's happened, you would think it's too late for America. II Chronicle 7:14 "If my people, which is called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and speak my face and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sins, and heal their land."
  • 7/7/2016 The journalistic tradition in which you are engaged is a long and storied one. I have nothing but respect for the office, and for the men who dare to follow in the hallowed footsteps of Horace Greeley and William Randolph Hearst. It is, in fact, this deep regard that compels me to write a letter disparaging the banal and careless writing that so regrettably permeates The Times.
