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.
  • The last three weeks has found JBS United and Price Heating exchanging the top spot in the league.
    On June 19, those teams battled each other for the top position. JBS United pitchers Sam Gibbons and Richard Reddick had good nights at the horseshoe courts but not good enough to defeat the mother and son combo of Susan and Mitch Dwigans, putting Price Heating on top again.

  • Drive sober or get pulled over. That's the message drivers should take to heart this weekend when there will be sobriety checkpoints around Hamilton County.

    About 750 people are convicted of an impaired driving offense annually in Hamilton County a lone, and nearly 100 of those are repeat offenders. In 2015 in Hamilton County, for example, the State filed 732 cases of operating while intoxicated. Of these, 106 drivers had prior convictions for operating while intoxicated within the last five years.

  • The Indiana Department of Revenue is reminding taxpayers that data thieves don’t take a summer vacation. In fact, summertime tends to be a favorite period for tax scammers, as many individuals are awaiting a response from DOR or the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) after filing their tax returns.

    Tax scammers try to get individuals to disclose personal information, such as their Social Security number, account information and/or passwords. Scams often come through as phone or email scams, however social media may also be used to target victims.

  • Society highlights innovative, driven Sheridan woman

    Do you know Mamie Randolph? The Sheridan Historical Society would like to know.

    The  Society has an interesting program open to the public Monday at 7 p.m. at the Sheridan Public Library. Two co-authors from Cadiz, Ky. will be in town to continue their work on a picture book about the Sheridan businesswoman from the early part of the 20th century.

    Mamie Randolph was a photographer who came to Sheridan from Cadiz after divorcing her husband. She and her young son packed up and moved north to begin life anew, this time as an independent businesswoman running a successful photography business. Why she choose Sheridan remains something of a mystery although, at the time, Sheridan was a thriving community and perhaps represented the best place for an ambitious woman to succeed.

  • Mitch Dwigans had a good night when it mattered most and led Price Heating to the upset that knocked JBS United out of first place.
    Dwigans finished in a tie for second in handicap series. The victory gives Price 21.5 wins after three weeks of the season against only 8.5 losses. JBS is close behind with 19.5 wins and 10.5 losses.

  • The ceremony was short, sweet and brought tears to the eyes of many in attendance.

    Last Saturday — on Opening Day of the Sheridan Recreation Program’s baseball season — several hundred people gathered around Diamond 1 at Biddle Memorial Park for the revealing of “The Joe Grinstead Jr. Memorial Field.”

    Joe Grinstead Jr. died on April 7, after he lost a battle with a rare, fast-acting tumor. Those who knew him knew he was always ready to pitch in and help without hesitation, Sheridan Town Council Vice President Steve Fisher said to the mixed crowd of Grinsteads and their friends.
