  • Larry Hobbs' players, fans gather at Library

    Most of the reunions that are held at the Sheridan Public Library in the Community Room are family or class related. But once in a while we encounter something unusual.

    Last week was special because several of the Larry Hobbs' basketball era (1948 to 1962) players gathered and celebrated another year of remembering their old coach and their (his) winning ways by having lunch and conversation at the library. A new twist this year was the addition of several of the cheerleaders from that era.

  • 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.

  • Rotary stays happy with program
    Many years ago—no one is really sure when it all began—the Sheridan Rotary Club started a program called “Happy Buck”. The purpose was to collect money at each meeting from members who were happy about something in their life since the last meeting. The thought was that a dollar would be just about the right amount and it was decided the money would be used to provide a monthly stipend to the club’s sponsored foreign exchange student. This was a fine idea and has since become an ingrained tradition.

  • Rotary and friends ready to travel

    Annually for the past several years the Sheridan Rotary Club, in cooperation with S&S Travel from Fort Wayne, has offered people a chance to get out and see interesting attractions across Indiana and throughout the Midwest. These bus trips range from one day to multi-day adventures. They have always been well received and this year should be no different.

    June 16 kicks off our travel season with a one-day mystery trip that promises to be fun. There will be lunch along a river, a stop for a sample of jumbo sweetness and an exciting culinary event. But best of all, it will all be a mystery which adds to the excitement.

  • Coalition Committee keeps Sheridan shining

    The Sheridan Coalition Committee has become an important part of our community and yet probably most residents have never even heard of it. One of its major achievements has been to persuade Dollar General to add a fresh foods section to their store to help fill the food void created when Railer’s went out of business.

    The Coalition was the brain child of Gloria Del Greco, a NEP Community Wellness Coordinator for the Purdue Extension Service. Her office is in Noblesville. Purdue established the Community Wellness Coordinator positions in December of 2015 to help communities make the healthy choice the easy choice.

  • Winter Reading Club back
    The Sheridan Public Library is once again offering customers a chance to sign up for the Winter Reading Club. According to director Steve Martin “We have not done the club for the last couple of years because we have had the Bicentennial Reading Club going on year round. We decided to go back to the old format this year because the bicentennial has been celebrated and a winter club has always been a popular activity for our adult readers in the past.”
