  • Sheridan schools, along with all major Hamilton County school systems and many other schools and businesses are either on a weather delay or are closed today. An ice storm hit the area overnight and more ice and snow are expected this morning.

  • Sheridan residents, listen up! There is a winter weather advisory in effect beginning at 1 a.m. tonight and going until 7 p.m. Thursday. A mixed bag of snow and ice is expected. And while the snow may only total two inches or less, a tenth-of-an-inch of ice could hit the town.

    If that happens, there could be issues with power lines and certainly road conditions.

  • Monon Trail runs from Sheridan to Indy
    On Tuesday, leaders from the cities of Westfield, Carmel, Hamilton County and the State of Indiana officially opened the last section of the Monon Trail in Westfield. The trail now connects downtown Indianapolis to Sheridan.
    “This is a great accomplishment for all of the Monon Trail communities,” said Westfield Mayor Andy Cook. “Creating amenities that encourage people to get out, stay active and enjoy our cities is what we want. The Monon Trail brings enormous economic and cultural benefits to all of the communities it touches.”
    The Monon Trail was established in 1996 paving the way for the former railroad route to become a premiere greenway in Central Indiana. With the completion of this 2.5 mile project, the Monon Trail now runs more than 24 miles.

  • Book highlights Sheridan

    The historians who visited Sheridan last spring from Cadiz, Ky., have announced the release of their newest publication. Mrs. Randolph, a small town portrait is a 282-page coffee table book from the desks of Kim Fortner and Paul Fourshee.

    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.

  • Early morning newspaper delivery routes available this summer. Delivery time varies from 90 minutes to three hours. These are NOT home delivery newspaper routes but rather deliveries to locations like convenience stores, post offices and newspaper racks. Contract rates negotiable but average between $10 and $12 per hour.

  • Rotarians updated on growing company
    Sheridan Rotary members were pleased to welcome Dr. Doug Webel to a recent meeting. Dr. Webel received his PhD in Comparative Nutrition from the University of Illinois in 1997, just prior to coming to Sheridan to work for what was then JBS United Feeds. Dr. Webel grew up on a small farm in Illinois where his family operated a successful hog operation so animal nutrition was a natural fit for his academic career. He has only ever worked for United Animal Health, beginning in the nutrition research lab 20 years ago and culminating with his current position as company CEO.

  • Got items from Hobbs era? Share with museum
    Many residents of the Sheridan community are aware that the Sheridan Historical Society has purchased what used to be the old Hippodrome Theater and are converting it into a new museum. The present museum—located catty corner across the street from the Hippodrome building—is too small to accommodate all the materials that have been collected over the years and there is no display space available for special exhibits.
    The new museum is expected to be open by late summer or early fall 2019. It will contain space for up to a half dozen permanent and rotating special exhibit alcoves depicting Sheridan’s history. One of the permanent alcove displays will be dedicated to the Larry Hobbs Basketball Era, roughly 1948 to 1962. Plans call for lots of pictures and lots of authentic basketball memorabilia.
