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.

    Born June 5, 1933 in Sheridan, he was the son of the late Gurnie Basil and Edith M. (Clampitt) Stowers.

  • Since the Sheridan Horseshoe League was rained out a couple of times, the members had to play catch up this week. Instead of their normal 10 win night they had a couple of 10 win nights!

    Price Heating recaptured the league lead by winning 18 of the 20. JBS United moved into second by winning 16 of 20, eight of which were against Traditional Concepts knocking them out of first and into third place.

  • The last weeks have been interesting, producing three different league leaders.

    With three weeks to go, the first-round winners are currently in second place trailing Traditional Concepts by two games. Traditional Concepts winning only 13 games during the first half of the season has double that amount so far during the four weeks of the season.

  • Sheridan looking for a few, good cheerleaders

    Sheridan Community Recreation — aka, the Rec Board — has a special committee of ladies who are busy trying to find a few community youngsters to participate in cheerleading during the upcoming school year. Focusing right now on football season, they are also looking ahead to basketball season, too.

    Encouraging young people to participate in sports events, including being a cheerleader, is important to their early development. Sheridan is blessed to have an organization like the Sheridan Rec Board which over the years has built a solid reputation for caring about our youth and promoting cheerleading and other sports events as wholesome activities.

  • Scammahorn family continues DQ tradition
    The Sheridan Dairy Queen restaurant on 236th Street over on the southeast side of town has been a mainstay of the Sheridan community for years. In December of 2015 the store was purchased by present owners Jeff and Lucy Scammahorn who continue the fine DQ tradition in Sheridan.
    The Scammahorn’s are not absentee managers. Every day finds Jeff hard at work managing the kitchen. Wife Lucy is right there with him, managing the administrative end of things as well as making ice cream cakes and more. Daughter Vanna pitches in to do her share of the kitchen work. This is a real family operation.

  • One of the highlights of the summer for many folks in Hamilton County is hitting the links! Another highlight is the opportunity to grow our businesses through networking outdoors . . . without freezing to death!
    That's why the annual Hamilton North Chamber Golf Outing is such a perfect event! Not only is this the main fundraiser for the Chamber, but it continues to grow year after year.
    And the best news is that you can get in on this year's event when it tees off on Tuesday, Aug. 28!

  • Rotarians spruce up Veterans Park
    Community service organizations make a huge difference. Whether it's volunteerism, donations, awareness or some other service they perform, the impact is positive and measurable.
    Sheridan Rotary is no different. So if you've noticed the fact that the gardens and shrubs at Veterans Park are nicer, you don't have to look any further than the Rotarians.

  • Teacher of Year speaks to Rotary

    Not that it is a secret, but lots of people do not realize that in 2003 Sheridan’s Robert Pickett, a first-grade teacher at Sheridan Community Schools, was chosen as Indiana’s Teacher of the Year. That’s quite an honor for a humble gentleman from a small rural school corporation in Indiana who went on to represent his profession and his state nationally. Although he did not win National Teacher of the Year, he did represent the best of Indiana and the educators we produce.

    Please understand that nothing about Mr. Pickett is ordinary; he is, in fact, a teacher of extraordinary skill who has touched the hearts and souls of hundreds of students over his teaching career.
