    Morse Beach opens tomorrowThe REPORTER

    Hamilton County Parks and Recreation has an-nounced a partnership with Friends of Central Pool in the operation of its beach and bathhouse at Morse Park and Beach. As a re-sult, the beach will official-ly open to the public for the 2018 season on Friday, June 15.

    Friends of Central Pool has been responsible for the successful oper-ation of Central Pool in

    Forest Park. Director of Hamilton County Parks and Recreation, Al Patter-son, said that “he was ex-tremely satisfied with the operating agreement that he’s confident will ensure quality guest service and safe, professional manage-ment of the beach and ad-jacent facility, by a proven organization.”

    Friends of Central Pool will also operate on-site concessions for beach guests. The hours of opera-

    tion are exclusively for the weekend, Friday through Sunday; with Friday hours being 3 to 7 p.m. and Sat-urday and Sunday hours being noon to 7 p.m. The admission rate on Fridays is $3 and for Saturdays and Sundays throughout the season, only $4.

    More information about Hamilton County Parks and its mission to serve the community can be found at Myhamilton-CountyParks.com.

    Costsfrom Page 1

    Last year county offi-cials said that with a grow-ing number of calls and in-creasing expenses it would be only fair for the smaller departments to contrib-ute to cover their portion of expenses. The northern communities were asked to pay amounts ranging from $135,000 for Sheridan to $17,000 for White River Township.

    Talks with municipal and county officials have been ongoing for months without resolution. This month units of local gov-ernment begin preparing budgets for 2019, thus the decision to seek at least some contribution from all communities.

    County Commissioner

    Steve Dillinger said that for 2019 only, the token amounts will be expected, mean-ing Sheridan would pay about $13,500 and White River only $1,700.

    For the fol-lowing year a proposal to enact a public safety local option income tax (LOIT) is expected to be introduced to the County Council. This tax would be used to pay the 911 communication costs, now running more than $1 mil-lion a year and growing. If enacted, the larger units of Noblesville, Carmel, West-field and Fishers would no

    longer have to contribute from their treasuries, but every county income taxpay-er would pay a small amount from their indi-vidual income.

    Officials said earlier this year

    that although some 911 calls are false alarms and duplications, dispatchers answered nearly 500,000 phone calls during the past year. Although the num-ber seems unusually large, with a county population of about 320,000, it is not un-reasonable. The call center must be prepared to quickly answer every call as a rapid response is often vital.

    Changes to traffic flow on Keystone, 96th, Veterans Way

    The REPORTERAs local construction

    continues, the City of Car-mel is providing updates on Keystone, 96th Corri-dor and Veteran’s Way so residents can determine the most efficient detour routes to take if needed. While the City provides updates, please keep in mind there are many variables that af-fect the exact start and fin-ish dates. The city will con-tinue to provide information for you as construction pro-gresses. The updates are listed below by project.

    96th Street CorridorWeather permitting,

    the Priority Way traffic changeover will take place

    on Wednesday, June 13. Traffic will remain open to east-west connectivity on 96th Street, but will be moved to the new half of the roundabout at Priority Way in the southern lanes. This changeover will lead to a three-sided structure that will be installed in the northern lanes just east of the intersection at 96th and Keystone Parkway.

    Veteran’s Way at City Hall

    Beginning this week, Veteran’s Way between Civic Square and the City Hall parking lot will be closed. This closure is to make repairs to the Duke Energy Transmission Duct

    Bank that was installed in December. This project is estimated to take about three weeks and the road will be restored in time for CarmelFest. The City Hall south parking lot will still be accessible from Range Line Road and the “hill parking” drive.

    Keystone ParkwayLane restrictions and

    concrete barricade usage will be continued in order to allow for work on the shoulders. In a new change, there will be no access 98th Street for the duration of this phase of work, but re-instated connectivity will resume in final phases of the project.

    Rep. Brooks’ bipartisan poison control bill passes the House

    The REPORTEROn Tuesday, the House

    of Representatives voted to pass H.R. 5329, the Poison Center Network Enhancement Act of 2018, intro-duced earlier this year by Congress-woman Susan W. Brooks (R-IN05).

    H.R. 5329, the Poison Center Network Enhance-ment Act of 2018 reauthorizes funding for the Poison Center Network, including their national toll-free number, (800) 222-1222. Specially trained phy-sicians, nurses and pharma-cists answer calls 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365

    days a year from the public, hospital emergency depart-ments, pharmacists, law en-forcement officials, EMTs,

    schools, Depart-ment of Health officials and more.

    Poison Con-trol Centers are essential to com-bating the opioid crisis because they compile data that can be used to discover hotspots

    for opioid abuse and misuse and alert impacted commu-nities so they can appropri-ately address the situation.

    Attorney General Hill commends court for respecting federalism

    The REPORTERAttorney General Cur-

    tis Hill on Tuesday ap-plauded a decision by the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Geor-gia to grant a preliminary injunction blocking the 2015 Waters of the United States (WOTUS) Rule for Indiana and 10 other states.

    “This rule, a product of the Obama years, infringes on the states’ rightful au-thority to regulate land and water resources within their own borders,” said Attor-ney General Hill. “I hope this preliminary injunction foreshadows a final resolu-tion that properly upholds the principles of American federalism. Going forward, my office will continue to stand against federal over-reach.”

    A complaint filed by Indiana and the 10 other states stipulat-ed that the 2015 WOTUS Rule violates the Clean Water Act and the Administrative Procedure Act. In its order issued June 8, the court agreed that if the WOTUS Rule became effective, the states would suffer irreparable harm in the form of both a “loss of sovereignty and unrecover-able monetary losses.” The court concluded that block-ing the WOTUS Rule also favors the public interest because it saves “farmers, homeowners, and small businesses” from having to “devote time and expense to obtaining federal permits

    … to comply with a rule that is likely to be inval-idated.”

    The WOTUS Rule, purport-ed to protect the e n v i r o n m e n t , would have tak-en jurisdiction over natural re-

    sources from states and put it in the hands of fed-eral agencies. These re-sources included almost any body of water, such as isolated streams, hun-dred-year floodplains and roadside ditches.

    The 11-state coalition

    that filed the complaint also includes Alabama, Geor-gia, Florida, Kansas, North Carolina, South Carolina, Utah, West Virginia, Wis-consin and the Common-wealth of Kentucky.

    In light of the district court’s order and an ear-lier injunction granted by the U.S. District Court for North Dakota, federal courts have now issued in-junctions against the 2015 WOTUS Rule in favor of 24 states.

  • By RICHIE HALLBy one shot, the Carmel boys golf team

    finally got back in the winner's circle after28 years.

    The Greyhounds were fighting withdefending state champion Center Grove all

    throughout this week's IHSAA state finalsat Prairie View Golf Club in Carmel. The'Hounds took the lead after Tuesday's firstround, and held off the Trojans in Wednes-day's second round to win the state title.

    Carmel scored 601 as a team to Center

    Grove's 602. It's the sixth state champion-ship for the Greyhounds, tying the recordwith Anderson. But it was also the first onefor the 'Hounds since 1990.

    "Man, it feels great," said Carmel coachChard Reid. "It was a stressful back nine tosay the least, back and forth. These guys juststepped up to the challenge."

    The Greyhounds were staying in frontof the Trojans by around four shots for mostof the meet, but Center Grove made a moveduring the final three holes. Everythingfunneled into a 18th hole showdown withCarmel junior Nick Dentino and the Trojans'Noah Gillard, the defending individual statechampion.

    Gillard recovered from hitting a wildfairway shot by hitting his next shot on tothe green, after which Dentino got out of thesand to stick the ball four feet from the hole,giving him a chance to save par.

    Just to ratchet up the pressure a littlemore, Gillard rolled in a birdie putt. ButDentino did his job, making his par putt.That clinched the win.

    "Once I found out he had a good breakand ended up hitting a good wedge shot intothe green, I thought, 'Okay, I need to clutchthis out and hit a good couple shots to makea par and win it for our team and that's whatI did in the end," said Dentino.

    "Nick, going into that hole, he knew thesituation," said Reid. "He knew we were uptwo, but we were going to lose a tiebreaker."

    The coach called Dentino's sand shot"about as good as it gets." Reid creditedDentino with staying calm after Gillard's bigbirdie, saying that Dentino "stood up there

    with ice in his veins and buried it. So it wasreally exciting."

    "To be able to win and win like this isreally something special and I'm reallyexcited to be able to celebrate it tonight,tomorrow and the rest of the year," saidDentino, who finished 14th overall with aWednesday score of 75 and a two-day scoreof 149. Dentino was named to the All-Stateteam at the conclusion of the tournament.

    Carmel's low man was sophomore ClayStirsman, who had an outstanding tourna-ment. Stirsman went under par in the firstround with a one-under 71, then shot a solid75 in the second round. That put him at 146,two-over for the tournament and part of athree-way tie for third place, and also earnedhim All-State honors.

    "I think I put a lot of shots together thatI haven't really had in a long time," saidStirsman. "I scrambled out there. I didn'treally play well with my irons either day. Ijust made do with it and just tried to scram-ble, take bogeys when I was in the hazardsinstead of trying to make a miraculous par,and I think that really just helped our team.Everyone on the team put in a good effort."

    Reid said that's one thing that has beenmade clear to the team: They are a team andthey count on each other.

    "We had different guys go low each day,and that's what it's about," said Reid."Different guys stepped up every day and inthe post-season and towards the end of May.They've really bought into that team mental-ity, and that's been the biggest difference thisyear is, guys are hitting different shots thanthey would in AJGA or individual tourna-ments.
