  • Jim Godby comes back home for talk

    Sheridan Rotarians had a special treat at their weekly meeting -- Jim and Jeff Godby were the honored guests. Many of the Rotarians present remember well when Jim first started Godby Home Furnishings in Sheridan in 1974. Son Jeff was just 10 years old at the time and there was only one store. In addition to furniture he also sold carpets and draperies.

    The story of Jim Godby is quite remarkable. He grew up in Sheridan -- actually in Boxley -- and graduated from Sheridan High School in 1960. He attended Purdue as an ag major, graduated in 1964 and a year later found himself in Viet Nam participating in the early build-up . . .

  • The Sheridan school board met recently and Dr. Dave Mundy, superintendent of Sheridan Community Schools, said textbook fees next year will be pretty even with this year's rates. There were small increases for texts and materials for sixth through eighth grades because of technology expenses.

    Mundy said math books in grades 6-12 will be consistent for all grades, something the board has been trying to do for some time.
