If you've noticed some improvements at the park, there's a reason for that. 

The Biddle Foundation re-coated & repaired the basketball courts and tennis courts last year. This year, it was decided it was time to replace the basketball goals completely. The courts are certainly used frequently by Sheridan residents, especially since it's the only outside full court venue open to the public in town. The cost was a little over $5,000 and was completely paid for by the Biddle Foundation.

  • Dear Editor,

    In times of crisis or distress, the people of God go to prayer. From the drought in California to the floods across the mid-section of the country, the outlook for the 2015 harvest is not good. Many farmers in my area are saying that they have never seen the corn looking this bad. One farmer described it as a slow-moving disaster.
