  • Sheridan 2nd-grader is one smart cookie

    How does a second-grader sell nearly 4,500 boxes of Girl Scout cookies?

    A big smile? Persistence? And a little help from family?

    Girl Scout Brownie Addison Dollahan, in her third year, mainly attributes her patch-winning achievements to door-to-door sales and working weekends at Girl Scout cookie booths.

    During her first year of Scouting, she sold nearly 1,500 cookies. Then in 2014, she sold a record 2,001 boxes of cookies, more than any other Girl Scout in her troop.

  • WESTFIELD — In an effort to prevent the sale of stolen property, Westfield has officially implemented an ordinance that will regulate pawnshops more closely. Currently, Fishers and Marion County have similar ordinances, and Carmel is in the process of passing its own.

    The ordinance that passed through Westfield’s City Council on Monday night will not only deter local criminals from the City, but also those coming north from Indianapolis and surrounding towns and cities with pawnshop ordinances. The ordinance does not only cover pawnshops, but any secondhand shop in the City, including antique stores, thrift shops, metal recyclers and secondhand metal dealers.
