Hamilton County Elections Office administrator Kathy Richardson is disappointed at Tuesday's low voter turnout.
Of the 187,364 registered voters, only 30,186 voted in Hamilton County. Only 16.11 percent. 
Better than four years ago? 
Well, yes. In 2011, the voter turnout was 14 percent.
"It is just disappointing that the turnout's so low, especially on local races. I believe they affect your area, or your community, as much as the president's race, and 85 percent come out and vote for the president," Richardson said.

  • Book highlights Sheridan

    The historians who visited Sheridan last spring from Cadiz, Ky., have announced the release of their newest publication. Mrs. Randolph, a small town portrait is a 282-page coffee table book from the desks of Kim Fortner and Paul Fourshee.

    Mrs. Randolph was a photographer in Sheridan from 1914 to 1946. She began her photography career at the young age of 17 when her husband purchased the studio of Quarles and Keates (rhymes with gates) in downtown Cadiz in 1893. She moved in 1914 to Sheridan and purchased Grace Bartlett’s Studio (the George Glass Studio) and continued her photography business until her death in 1946.

  • After a warm start to fall, cooler temperatures are finally expected this weekend. Hoosiers using alternative heating methods to avoid the furnace a bit longer should exercise caution.

    “During the months of October through December, fire-related deaths increase because of alternative heating sources,” said State Fire Marshal James Greeson. “These heating sources are the leading cause of all home fires for the calendar year so sharing information about their dangers is vital.”
