  • State officials urge Hoosiers to take the necessary precautions this week and prepare for wind chills that could reach as low as -40 degrees in some parts of Indiana. The arctic blast expected overnight Tuesday into Wednesday could be the coldest system to move through Indianapolis in years. Such frigid temperatures can present a variety of challenges and dangers to residents, although many are preventable by Hoosiers taking extra steps both inside and outside of their home.

  • It's all happy with Rotarians
    Twice a month at their formal meetings, Sheridan Rotarians take a few moments to celebrate something they are happy about that occurred in their lives recently. Called Happy Buck, this is a special cash donation of $1 or more as recognition for their happy moment(s). Happy moments typically include a birthday, an anniversary, a favorite team win, the good weather, a job well done or just about anything else you can imagine. The events are recorded on a Happy Buck slip along with the amount donated. Later the amounts are recorded on a spreadsheet and the slip is retained for the annual celebration.
