  • Rachel Adams wins 2016 4-H Fair Queen

    Sheridan's Rachel Adams is the 2016 Hamilton County 4-H Fair Queen.

    Adams, 16, a junior at Sheridan High School, is the daughter of Christian and Jennifer Adams. The eighth-year 4-H-er, a member of Sheridan Ag 4-H Club, was crowned Friday night at the Hamilton County 4-H Fairgrounds in Noblesville. She was crowned by 2015 4-H Fair Queen Madison McFadden, 20, Noblesville.

    "It's amazing. I'm on top of the world right now. I had no idea. There were so many girls. I can't believe I am Miss Hamilton County," said a nervous and excited Adams, as she held tightly to her flowers after the crown was placed on her head.

  • Vandalism bust sends policeman to hospital

    A Sheridan police officer was sent to the hospital, a 65-year-old Sheridan man was arrested and a nearly two-year-old vandalism case may have been solved this week.

    In September of 2014 the Sheridan Police Department began to investigate a series of vandalisms throughout the town, three of which were directly connected to arson. The vandalism incidents all contained the word “HEX” which was spray painted on homes, fences or vehicles. For nearly two years the Sheridan Police, the Indiana State Fire Marshalls Office and the ATF have been continuously investigating these crimes.

  • The President of the Sheridan Town Council condemned an unauthorized entry in the Fourth of July Parade as "blatantly disrespectful and racist."

    "Such an act is not representative of the town of Sheridan, the town's elected officials, or the residents of our community," said David M. Kinkead.

    The entry, created and driven by Don Christy, 73 of Sheridan, depicted an effigy of President Barack Obama in a toilet. A sign under the display read "Lying African."

    Multiple calls to reach Mr. Christy for comment were unsuccessful.

    Photos of the cart were posted to social media websites and drew unwanted state and national attention to Sheridan.

  • WESTFIELD - For Carmel's Ellen Mitchell, Donald Trump's visit to the Grand Park Events Center Tuesday night, was a re-affirmation of what she thought she might hear from the presumptive Republican nominee for President.

    "A strong defense. I like what he says about a strong defense," Mitchell said. National defense issues are important to her, she said, because her husband is former military.

    Trump's rally, the first to take place in the as-yet opened Events Center, drew capacity crowd of several thousand people. Most, like Ed Ranz, Fishers, heard what they expected to hear.
