  • Millers slow down Huskies, rally back to win
    12/21/2014 Possessions came at a premium Saturday night, and the Class 4A Noblesville Millers converted just enough - and when they wanted - to extend their winning streak to three games with a 35-31 victory.

    Down 11-3 to Class 3A No. 5 Hamilton Heights (5-3) after the first quarter, the Millers (5-1) slowed to a deliberate crawl on offense, which disrupted the up-tempo Huskies and put the host boys' basketball team in complete control at The Mill.

    "Offensively, we didn't get off to a great start in the first quarter, but I was proud of our guys in how we kept our composure and weathered the storm," Noblesville head coach Brian McCauley said. "We found ourselves down by eight, and in a low-posession game, that's a huge number."

  • Families enjoy train rides with Santa, Mrs. Claus
    12/21/2014 On Saturday afternoon, 5-year-old Lane Williams took his first-ever train ride as a passenger on the Polar Bear Express.

    He and his sister, Grace Williams, 6, and their mom, Andrea Williams, climbed aboard the Indiana Transportation Museum's historic 1937 train and traveled roundtrip from Fishers to Noblesville. Although they had ridden on trains before, they were first-timers on the Polar Bear Express.

  • Polar Bear Express back on the tracks
    12/21/2014 Train rides on the Indiana Transportation Museum's Polar Bear Express are back on the tracks.

    Rides on Saturday morning were canceled after the train derailed Friday night in downtown Noblesville with 200 passengers aboard.

    The train, which was returning to Fishers, had just crossed the White River when two wheels on the train left the tracks. No one was injured, Noblesville Police Lt. Bruce Barnes said Saturday. The passengers were transported back to the Fishers Train Station, where their cars were parked.

    Saturday's 9:30 and 11:30 a.m. train rides were canceled "so that the track and equipment can be inspected," Becky Cola, a spokesperson for the museum, said Saturday.

    Professional track-repair technician Woody Fesler from All Track Inc., worked much of his day Saturday inspecting and measuring the railroad tracks located near Bolden's Dry Cleaners, 151 N. Eighth St., just northwest of the Courthouse. An employee at Bolden's on Saturday morning said the train sat in front of the dry cleaners until about 11:30 a.m., then departed south toward Fishers.

    The Polar Bear Express operated the remainder of Saturday, beginning with the 1:30 p.m. departure from Fishers, with a shortened trip.
