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.

  • County Commissioner Heirbrandt speaks to Sheridan Rotarians

    Hamilton County Commissioner Mark Heirbrandt recently spoke to Sheridan Rotarians and several other interested community members about various Hamilton County infrastructure projects currently under way or planned for the near future.

    Projects talked about included the planned upgrade to State Road 47 along the southern border of the Sheridan community, the widening of West 236th Street through the Bakers Corner community and the ongoing drainage project on the east edge of town. These were the three projects that will most directly affect Sheridan in the next couple of years.

  • Alden Bacon

    Alden Bacon, 83, of Cape Coral, Fla. and formerly of Sheridan, passed away at his home Nov. 3, 2018.

    Born in Sheridan on June 3, 1935, he was the son of the late Gerald L. and Helen E. (Marlow) Bacon.

    Mr. Bacon attended Sheridan High School and went to work for Biddle Screw Products. While working as the production manager and supervisor at Biddle's, he relished in the fact and was always quick to point out (especially to one special employee) that he was his son-in-law's boss — at least while they were on the clock. After 40 years of dedicated service to the company, he took his retirement and headed for a much warmer climate.

    Retirement suited Mr. Bacon just fine, as if the first half of his life was just a warm-up for the main event. With his free time, he was able to focus on the things that brought joy into his life. He was able to travel whenever, however, and wherever he wanted.

  • Book highlights Sheridan

    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.”
