  • The Sheridan Horseshoe League will soon be starting their 42nd year. 
    It doesn’t matter if this is your first time pitching or 40th time, you don’t have to be a professional to pitch. Similar to bowling, a handicap system is used. Horseshoe pitching is a great way to exercise, enjoy friendly competition and meet new people. All are welcome over 12 years of age both men and women.

  • 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.
