Box City Program

We enjoy the exciting ways that are youth are taught about 'real life'.  This is an exciting way that Noblesville is teaching a group of third and fourth graders at Promise Road Elementary.

October is National Planning Month, which gives the Noblesville Planning Department will host a program called Boxed City to Promise Road Elementary.  Students will work with Planning Department and other city staff to construct 'buildings' our of boxes and then design and construct cities from those buildings.

Students will earn about the steps necessary to construct the buildings and cities in real life such as permits, zoning issues, architecture and design procedures and more.  The third graders will be responsible for constructing the buildings according to the standards of the City of Noblesville and the fourth graders will determine the master layout of the city.

Students from Ball State University's Graduate Program in Urban Planning will be observing and assisting the Box City program and will share the ideas and results of Noblesville's program with other communities in Indiana.

Foot Golf Deput

Saturday, September 27th, the Noblesville Parks Department will introduce its newest offering - foot golf.  It is a combination of soccer and golf.

An 18 hole accredited foot golf course is being constructed within the west nine holes at Fox Prairie Golf Course and will be the seventh such course in Indiana.

Players tee up in groups like golf and begin each hole by kicking a soccer ball from the tee.  They then kick the ball until it lands in a special 21" hole while utilizing the etiquette and rules of traditional golf.  Traditional golf attire is preferred and no cleats will be allowed, soccer flats or tennis shoes should be worn.

Golf and foot golf courses will both be available for play anytime that Fox Prairie is open.  Players are encouraged to call for tee times up to one week in advance.  Rental soccer balls will be available or players may bring their own soccer balls.

For more information, contact Mike Hoffmeister, Assistant Director of the Parks Department at 317-776-6350.

Highlights from the Carmel Historical Society:

 
Wednesday Whiskers

The top 5 reasons people surrender their pets to our facility are:

  1. We’re moving and can’t keep our pet. If there is a move planned in your future, you must ensure you can have pets and that there aren’t any breed specific guidelines that will prevent you from keeping your pet. Ask landlords for their pet policy and ask for something in writing that indicates you meet the requirements to have a pet.
  2. Financial hardship. Pets are expensive. They get sick, they require preventative care so they don’t get sick such as heartworm preventative and dental care, not to mention the cost of boarding should you travel and providing good food. You must take these things into consideration before taking on a new dependant.
  3. Behavioral issues. It is truly amazing how many people will surrender their dogs or cats because of behavioral issues when the family has never provided any training to the animal or explored potential health problems that might be creating the behavior.
  1. Dogs need to be trained on what they can and cannot do. They’re looking to their humans for guidance. This is YOUR responsibility.
  2. When you take home a new puppy, they are a blank canvas. You have the paint brush. What they become is entirely up to you.
  3. Whether it’s a cat urinating outside the litter box or scratching up the couch, these behaviors can usually be explained by a health condition or be easily addressed.
  1. Not enough time. Other than moving, this is probably the most frustrating and avoidable reason owners surrender their pets. This usually results from spontaneous decisions to purchase or adopt a pet. Pets take time. They need daily care, exercise and love. If you don’t have time to do these things each and every day, you don’t need a pet.
  2. Divorce. We receive many pets because couples divorce and in the midst of a difficult situation, their pets pay the price. Divorce is a very difficult thing to cope with, but pets are a lifetime responsibility just like your children and should not be disposed of even in times of hardship.

The Hamilton County Humane Society offers many pets looking for a loving home for reasons listed above. Find your special pet at the pet finder today.
