1. Vehicle Quality

Have you ever booked a car on a rideshare app thinking you'd be riding in style, only to find out you're riding in a tin can with wheels? When using a ridesharing service, there's always some uncertainty regarding the type of car you'll get. It could be a small, dirty vehicle that doesn't fit your needs. Some ridesharing companies offer luxury options, but there's no guarantee that the car provided will actually be luxurious. However, if you're looking for a stylish ride, a limo service may be the way to go. With a limo service, you have the freedom to choose your own vehicle, and you can rest assured that it will be clean and meet your expectations.

2. Fluctuating Price

One of the most frustrating aspects of using ridesharing apps is that their pricing is unreliable. The cost of a ride usually depends on the availability of drivers and the demand for rides at a certain time. If there are fewer drivers available than there are people who need rides, the prices may increase. However, this is not the case with limousine services from LSG International. When you book a limo service online, the price you are quoted is the price you will pay. No sneaky upcharges. No fluctuating rates. That means that you will always know the exact cost of your ride ahead of time and can plan accordingly.

3. Boring Experiences

Let's face it - the random Honda Civic that picks you up on the ridesharing app can't compare to a quality stretch limousine, luxury SUV, or party bus provided by LSG International. Booking a limo or luxury car driving service can add a touch of class that you won't get with a stranger's car, even if you're just hitting the town with your spouse. If you're looking to make the event extra special, then opting for a limo service is the way to go.

Limo Service Pricing

When it comes to choosing a chauffeured service, price is always an important factor to consider. It's a good idea to compare prices and get an idea of what is a reasonable price to pay. However, keep in mind that the cheapest price may not always be the best value. In fact, it's possible that the cheapest service may end up being disappointing. Always remember the saying, "Price is what you should pay; value is what you should get. "So, don't compromise on quality for the sake of a lower price.

Whether you're renting a limo or a party bus for a wedding or a major event, it's important to find a reliable and trustworthy service provider that can offer you the best value for your money. At LSG International, we take the guesswork out of pricing by offering online quotes, which you can get in just a couple of minutes.

An injured kayaker was rescued by firefighters over the weekend at Camp Atterbury.

The Bargersville Community Fire Department Rope Rescue squad conducted a low angle rope rescue with the Nineveh Fire Department on Saturday afternoon. The rescue involved an injured kayaker near Sugar Creek in Camp Atterbury, according to a Facebook post from Bargersville Fire.

The kayaker, a male, was in good condition and transported to a nearby hospital, fire officials said.

No additional information has been released.

Two Franklin parks events will not take place as scheduled this week.

Parks & Recreation officials have canceled Tuesday’s planned Karaoke at the Amp. The event was canceled due to the expected heat and heat index, the department said in a Facebook post on Monday.

The next karaoke event is set for July 26 with Magical Karaoke at the Amp followed by a showing of “Trolls 3.” Karaoke will take place at 5:30 p.m., with the movie beginning at 9 p.m., according to the department’s website.

Officials also announced Monday that Friday’s planned Crush-Bon Jovi Experience concert had been postponed to Aug. 16. No reason was given for the postponement in the Facebook post that announced it.

On Aug. 16, Jessie Brown Duo will take the stage from 6-7:30 p.m. and CRUSH will play from 8-10 p.m., the post says.

All of these events will take place at the DriveHubler.com Amphitheater at Youngs Creek Park.

Faced with one of the biggest decisions of his life, Brent Nicoson sought advice from the home team.

Nicoson, the guiding force behind the University of Indianapolis women’s golf program since 2011, has accepted the same position at Grand Canyon University, a Division I school located in Phoenix. He succeeds former Lopes coach Lauren Giesecke, a native of Kokomo who stepped down after nine seasons

His son Ben and daughter Mia, graduates of Center Grove High School in 2019 and 2024, respectively, were called on to weigh the situation and provide input.

“I’ve never known anything but central Indiana,” said Nicoson, 52, a graduate of Beech Grove and UIndy. “Having everyone branch out is going to be kind of difficult, but Ben and Mia were part of this decision.

“They didn’t shy away from it.”

Timing is everything, and in Nicoson’s extremely busy universe, the opportunity to be at the forefront of a program (and school) continuing to grow in numbers as well as reputation, it was time to leave his alma mater — a place synonymous with the Nicoson surname.

Nicoson’s paternal grandfather, Angus Nicoson, coached men’s basketball and served as athletic director at then-Indiana Central University from 1947-76. His legendary career included stints as football and baseball coach as well.

Brent’s father, Dan, played football for the Greyhounds, eventually serving as an assistant coach. Ben Nicoson was part of the UIndy men’s basketball squad from 2019-23.

Brent Nicoson has done the family name proud and then some, starting with playing men’s golf for UIndy from 1992-94. As a coach, he guided the Greyhound women to Division II national championships in 2015, 2018 and the 2024 tournament in Winter Haven, Florida.

Nicoson doubled as the school’s men’s golf coach, a role he’s had since the 2006-07 school year.

“Coaching two teams was getting tougher and tougher, and it was very stressful for me to be able to get that accomplished. It was tough,” Nicoson said. “Grand Canyon called right after the national championship, and sold me pretty quickly on the vision of what they want in their women’s golf program.”

Nicoson exits his alma mater as one of the most decorated coaches in school history in any sport.

During his tenure, he won a combined 15 Great Lakes Valley Conference coach of the year honors, 16 conference championships, 10 regional crowns and the aforementioned national titles.

Nicoson also coached a total of 20 GLVC players of the year, 14 league freshmen of the year and 42 All-Americans.

Starting in the next couple of weeks, he’ll take that winning formula out west. Grand Canyon is coming off a season in which it placed third at the Western Athletic Conference tournament.

Nicoson’s consistent success throughout his time at UIndy included much more than the ability to recruit talented golfers.

“It’s not just about golf. It’s my ability to see them as people first, and develop that trust,” Nicoson said. “I think that trust is built during the recruiting process. I try to hold them accountable across the board.

“That’s a goal of mine, to have as much of an impact on the players as people, and not just as a golfer.”

Muesing Management withdraws Bargersville mixed-use development proposal

An Indianapolis-based company that proposed a mixed-use development in Bargersville withdrew from the project on Wednesday. By consensus, town officials voted to accept the withdrawal.The project, proposed by Museing Management Company, would have brought 422 apartments, townhomes and space for three commercial buildings southeast of State Road 135 and Whiteland Road.“After much discussion with our legal council and a conversation with Dustin [Muesing Representative], we believe this is the appropriate action,” said...

An Indianapolis-based company that proposed a mixed-use development in Bargersville withdrew from the project on Wednesday. By consensus, town officials voted to accept the withdrawal.

The project, proposed by Museing Management Company, would have brought 422 apartments, townhomes and space for three commercial buildings southeast of State Road 135 and Whiteland Road.

“After much discussion with our legal council and a conversation with Dustin [Muesing Representative], we believe this is the appropriate action,” said Joe Csikos, the town’s development director.

The proposal first came before the Bargersville Plan Commission in August and was delayed for two months because of questions over permission to access an existing road. Plan commission members and town officials have been debating if the project was the right one for the 36-acre parcel since then.

The plan commission sent the proposed project with a unanimous “no recommendation” to the town council in October. There was some discussion at this meeting about the growing number of apartments in Bargersville and the lack of affordable housing.

Last month, town council members asked the developer to commit to prohibiting adult businesses in the commercial parcels, to which they agreed. Council member Andrew Greenwood said at a November meeting that he would vote favorably for the project if the number of units and the architecture was changed. Following that meeting, the development was put on hold again until the company withdrew.

Plans show 11 three-story buildings containing 208 units and 16 two-story townhomes containing 114 units which would have come with a density of 14.1 units per acre. The units would have been priced starting at $1,025 for a 667-square-foot one-bedroom apartment, with a three-bedroom, 1,578-square-foot townhome renting starting at $1,775. Renters would have needed a minimum income of $36,900 to qualify for the one-bedroom apartments.

The apartments would have included kitchen appliances and an in-unit washer and dryer, along with added amenities. The complex was to include an outdoor pool, a pet washing center, a bike repair station, workout areas, a golf simulator and about eight acres of green space. That green space was going to include a dog park and trails circling retention ponds and running parallel to State Road 135, according to planning documents.

Muesing Management has developed a similar neighborhood in Greenfield, the 348-unit Preserve on Blue Road. The company also manages several other developments in central Indiana, including the Courts of Valle Vista Apartments, Greenwood Oaks Townhomes and the St. Andrews subdivision in Greenwood.

BOGOTA, Colombia (AP) — President Nicolás Maduro ordered Venezuela’s armed forces to conduct defensive exercises in the Eastern Caribbean after the United Kingdom sent a warship toward Guyana’s territorial waters as the South American neighbors dispute a large border region.

In a nationally televised address Thursday, Maduro said that 6,000 Venezuelan troops — including air and naval forces — will conduct joint operations off the nation’s eastern coast near the border with Guyana.

Maduro described the impending arrival of British ship HMS Trent to Guyana’s shores as a threat to his country. He argued the ship’s deployment violates a recent agreement between the South American nations.

“We believe in diplomacy, in dialogue and in peace, but no one is going to threaten Venezuela,” Maduro said in a room where he was accompanied by a dozen military commanders. “This is an unacceptable threat to any sovereign country in Latin America.”

Venezuela and Guyana are currently involved in a border dispute over the Essequibo, a sparsely populated region the size of Florida with vast oil deposits off its shores.

The region has been under Guyana’s control for decades, but in December, Venezuela relaunched its historical claim to the Essequibo through a referendum in which it asked voters in the country whether the Essequibo should be turned into a Venezuelan state.

As tensions over the region escalated, the leaders of both countries met in the Caribbean island of St. Vincent, and signed an agreement which said they would solve their dispute through nonviolent means.

During the talks, however, Guyana’s President Irfaan Ali said his nation reserved its right to work with its partners to ensure the defense of his country.

On Thursday, Guyanese officials described the visit of HMS Trent as a planned activity aimed at improving the nation’s defense capabilities and said the ship’s visit will continue as scheduled.

“Nothing that we do or have done is threatening Venezuela,” Guyana’s Vice President Bharrat Jagdeo told reporters in Georgetown, the nation’s capital.

HMS Trent is a patrol and rescue ship that was recently used to intercept drug traffickers off the West Coast of Africa. It can accommodate up to 30 sailors and a contingent of 18 marines, and is equipped with 30 mm cannons and a landing pad for helicopters and drones.

The ship had been sent to Barbados in early December to intercept drug traffickers, but its mission was changed on Dec. 24, when it was sent to Guyana. Authorities did not specify when it was expected to arrive off Guyana’s shores.

The United Kingdom’s Defense Ministry said the ship would be conducting joint operations with Guyana’s defense forces.

The nation of 800,000 people has a small military that is made up of 3,000 soldiers, 200 sailors and four small patrol boats known as Barracudas.

Venezuela says it was the victim of a land theft conspiracy in 1899, when Guyana was a British colony and arbitrators from Britain, Russia and the United States decided the boundary. The U.S. represented Venezuela in part because the Venezuelan government had broken off diplomatic relations with Britain.

Venezuelan officials contend Americans and Europeans colluded to cheat their country out of the land. They also argue that an agreement among Venezuela, Britain and the colony of British Guiana signed in 1966 to resolve the dispute effectively nullified the original arbitration.

Guyana maintains the initial accord is legal and binding and asked the United Nations’ top court in 2018 to rule it as such, but a decision is years away. The century-old dispute was recently reignited with the discovery of oil in Guyana.

Two Indiana restaurants make OpenTable's top 100 list for 2023

There's good eating to be found in Indiana, and diners have taken notice. Online restaurant reservation service OpenTable recently published its list of the top 100 restaurants in the United States, with two Indiana restaurants making the cut.The top 100 is based on the percentage of advance reservations restaurants received this year as well as ratings and reviews from more than 12 million OpenTable users, ...

There's good eating to be found in Indiana, and diners have taken notice. Online restaurant reservation service OpenTable recently published its list of the top 100 restaurants in the United States, with two Indiana restaurants making the cut.

The top 100 is based on the percentage of advance reservations restaurants received this year as well as ratings and reviews from more than 12 million OpenTable users, the article specifies. Indiana was one of 26 states featured, along with Washington, D.C. and Puerto Rico.

While every Hoosier would proudly advocate for his or her favorite spot, Our Table American Bistro in Bargersville and 9th Street Bistro in Noblesville stood above the rest in OpenTable's estimation.

Our Table executive chef and owner Joe Miller started in the food industry at age 14, working for Indy Anna's Catering in Carmel, per the restaurant's website.

Miller and his wife, Ginger, opened Our Table in November 2021, serving up steaks, fried chicken, pasta and other familiar favorites.

Need a break? Play the USA TODAY Daily Crossword Puzzle.

In Noblesville, diners can taste a variety of cultural influences in the bistro fare at 9th Street Bistro, where chef Samir Mohammad brings years of culinary expertise from his time as an executive chef and consultant for multiple restaurants all the way back to washing dishes at a diner in Taos, New Mexico when he was 12.

Mohammad and his wife, Rachel, returned to Rachel's home state to open 9th Street Bistro in early 2020, but pivoted to selling to-go meals during the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Now, 9th Street offers a rotating menu with flavors from around the world — the December menu features Moroccan chicken and lamb ragu Bolognese — as well as tastes that are unmistakably American — see the "fried thing of the day."

There may be debate over OpenTable's selections — the service specializes in reservations, so restaurants that heavily utilize reservations likely garnered more buzz — but there's no denying diners enjoy these restaurants enough to know they need to plan ahead when they want to eat at them.

Local officials gathered in downtown Bargersville Tuesday morning for an emotional and exciting groundbreaking of Umbarger Plaza.

The $2 million plaza east of the railroad tracks and southwest of Old Plank Road and Baldwin Street will include an amphitheater, public restrooms and a green space. Officials hope the new space will provide a place for the community to gather and celebrate the history of Bargersville.

“Today is a momentous occasion,” said Susie Qualls, town council president. “A day that marks the beginning of a new chapter of a vibrant story of our community.”

Show feed producer Roy Umbarger & Sons Inc. transferred the property, valued at $173,000, to the town of Bargersville on Jan. 4, 2022, according to property records. The prime downtown Bargersville land became available because the company opened a new, larger feed mill in rural Franklin.

Through tears and cheers of support, Marty Umbarger shared memories of four generations of Umbarger’s family business, which formerly operated at the site. In 1939, Roy Umbarger moved to Bargersville and began his own feed business. At just 25 years old, after serving in World War II, Walter Umbarger took over the family business and began its growth, the company’s website says.

The decision to let go of generations of family land was tough but exciting, he said.

“It’s just emotional to sit here and think they came here with nothing,” Umbarger said. “We came to this town with nothing and we’ve had a good business. Now to have another use of this property that’s going to benefit the citizens of our town is very fulfilling.”

1 of 9

The Umbarger’s are “honored” and “proud” that town officials considered their family throughout the process, Umbarger said. As a reflection of Bargersville’s rural heritage and the Umbarger family, the roof of the covered stage at the plaza will resemble the roof of a grain bin.

“I think my mother and father and grandma and grandpa are looking down now, extremely proud and happy there’s a new use for this property,” Umbarger said.

Ruth Umbarger already envisions how the space will be utilized as a gathering place.

“We have long roots in this community and this will be a great benefit for the community.”

An Umbarger grain bin and two one-story buildings were demolished to clear space for the plaza, however, other parts of the business including the landmark grain elevator still stand and can be seen from the plaza.

With the ground broken, Umbarger Plaza is expected to be completed next fall.

“As we embark on this exciting journey, let us remember that the success of the amphitheater lies not just in the construction in physical form, but in the warmth and energy that you the people of this town will bring to it,” Qualls said.

Instead of having all of the town’s concerts in the street, the new park will provide a dedicated space for them.

However, the space isn’t just for concerts and events, it will be a new place for town residents to gather any time of the year. The back of the stage will feature a native plant prairie and a limestone block sign at the north entrance welcoming people to Umbarger Plaza. The rest of the plaza develops to the south, including a moderately sloped lawn bordered by trees, walking paths and seating areas.

Bargersville unveils designs for downtown gathering space, Umbarger Plaza

Bargersville town officials have released initial renderings of Umbarger Plaza, a planned downtown gathering place for entertainment and leisure.The about $2 million plaza east of the railroad tracks and southwest of Old Plank Road and Baldwin Street will include a stage, public restrooms, benches, a lawn, trees and plants from native prairies.

Bargersville town officials have released initial renderings of Umbarger Plaza, a planned downtown gathering place for entertainment and leisure.

The about $2 million plaza east of the railroad tracks and southwest of Old Plank Road and Baldwin Street will include a stage, public restrooms, benches, a lawn, trees and plants from native prairies. Show feed producer Roy Umbarger & Sons Inc. transferred the property, valued at $173,000, to the town of Bargersville on Jan. 4, 2022, according to property records.

While Umbarger Plaza won’t be completed until the fall of 2024, residents were given a sneak peek of what it will look like during a presentation from Beech Grove-based transportation and development consultants CrossRoad Engineers during an Aug. 8 town council meeting.

In order to clear space for the plaza, construction crews demolished a grain bin and two one-story buildings, but the landmark Umbarger grain elevator on County Road 144 was left standing. A reflection of Bargersville’s rural heritage, the roof of the covered stage at the plaza will resemble the roof of a grain bin, said Trent Newport, president of CrossRoad Engineers, which is serving as the project manager and design lead.

“The town has just gone through a planning process about what Bargersville means to people and the committee focused on those responses,” Newport said. “They want to maintain homage to the farm community and still elevate their game and park space and areas for people to come to town and enjoy the amenities. The design committee was in concert with those ideas.”

The stage will be located on the north end of the plaza, and will have an elevation of 18 inches. While CrossRoad Engineers designed the DriveHubler.com Amphitheater in Franklin, which has a taller stage, the Bargersville stage is meant to be enjoyed not just during events, Newport said.

“The Franklin amphitheater is a much larger space and area. You don’t see that stage being for everyday use,” he said. “With this stage area, we want to attract every day hanging out use from people in town, but it can also be a stage. It’s large enough to hold a bigger act but I think it will get a lot of smaller acts.”

The back of the stage will feature a native plant prairie and a limestone block sign at the north entrance welcoming people to Umbarger Plaza. The rest of the plaza develops to the south, including a moderately sloped lawn bordered by trees, walking paths and seating areas.

“It’s a narrow area to deal with. We wanted a lawn for everyday use, you can put blankets on the lawn for lunch, and there’s a slope about three feet tall at the south end of the lawn,” Newport said.

The south end of the plaza will feature an arrival area with public restrooms, seating and lighting. There will be a variety of seating, including curved benches with back support, oval seating and long benches that don’t have backs, all of which will be wood with steel framing, according to a presentation from CrossRoad Engineers.

“The arrival plaza we want to be a bit of a gathering area where there’s more of a volume of seating. The lawn area has less seating but we’ll still have some for everyday use,” Newport said. “The lawn itself can be seating and then on the north end, there are landscape areas for people who like trail walking or people who want to go to a peaceful area or read a book.”

During festivals, food trucks will be able to use Baldwin Street, which borders the plaza to the east, he said.

“I could see them shutting down the street,” Newport said. “They could use the street to have vendors, which makes sense for these big events. Parking is accessible down at the south end and there are other parking areas you can get to from there.”

Final decisions on items such as plant types and lighting fixtures will likely be made later this month, so town officials can accept bids this fall. The plaza should open about a year later, he said.

When the plaza opens, it will serve as a prime gathering space for Bargersville residents, Town Manager Dan Cartwright said earlier this year.

“Our parks department will be actively working on bands, concerts and downtown activities,” Cartwright said. “It’s going to be a place you can go to near downtown establishments and on a pretty night you can sit in the park.”
