  • Teacher of Year speaks to Rotary

    Not that it is a secret, but lots of people do not realize that in 2003 Sheridan’s Robert Pickett, a first-grade teacher at Sheridan Community Schools, was chosen as Indiana’s Teacher of the Year. That’s quite an honor for a humble gentleman from a small rural school corporation in Indiana who went on to represent his profession and his state nationally. Although he did not win National Teacher of the Year, he did represent the best of Indiana and the educators we produce.

    Please understand that nothing about Mr. Pickett is ordinary; he is, in fact, a teacher of extraordinary skill who has touched the hearts and souls of hundreds of students over his teaching career.

  • Sheridan Rotary offers comfortable climate

    With temperatures in the 90s and humidity levels not far behind, Sheridan Rotarians recently celebrated the canicular days of summer by paying homage to the “Air-Conditioner god”, one of many deities associated with the HVAC belief.

    Seriously though, Sheridan Rotary meets on the first and third Tuesday evenings of each month at 6:15 p.m. in the Community Room of the Sheridan Public Library where it is cool in the summer and warm in the winter.

  • Reading fun at Library

    Reading and literacy have been documented to help people lead a more successful life. That's why the program at the Sheridan Public Library is so important. 

    What program? It's where children and young adults from around the community have been enjoying the events and learning experiences associated with good reading and fun activities at the Library this summer.

  • Larry Hobbs' players, fans gather at Library

    Most of the reunions that are held at the Sheridan Public Library in the Community Room are family or class related. But once in a while we encounter something unusual.

    Last week was special because several of the Larry Hobbs' basketball era (1948 to 1962) players gathered and celebrated another year of remembering their old coach and their (his) winning ways by having lunch and conversation at the library. A new twist this year was the addition of several of the cheerleaders from that era.

  • Society highlights innovative, driven Sheridan woman

    Do you know Mamie Randolph? The Sheridan Historical Society would like to know.

    The  Society has an interesting program open to the public Monday at 7 p.m. at the Sheridan Public Library. Two co-authors from Cadiz, Ky. will be in town to continue their work on a picture book about the Sheridan businesswoman from the early part of the 20th century.

    Mamie Randolph was a photographer who came to Sheridan from Cadiz after divorcing her husband. She and her young son packed up and moved north to begin life anew, this time as an independent businesswoman running a successful photography business. Why she choose Sheridan remains something of a mystery although, at the time, Sheridan was a thriving community and perhaps represented the best place for an ambitious woman to succeed.

  • Rotary stays happy with program
    Many years ago—no one is really sure when it all began—the Sheridan Rotary Club started a program called “Happy Buck”. The purpose was to collect money at each meeting from members who were happy about something in their life since the last meeting. The thought was that a dollar would be just about the right amount and it was decided the money would be used to provide a monthly stipend to the club’s sponsored foreign exchange student. This was a fine idea and has since become an ingrained tradition.

  • Rotary and friends ready to travel

    Annually for the past several years the Sheridan Rotary Club, in cooperation with S&S Travel from Fort Wayne, has offered people a chance to get out and see interesting attractions across Indiana and throughout the Midwest. These bus trips range from one day to multi-day adventures. They have always been well received and this year should be no different.

    June 16 kicks off our travel season with a one-day mystery trip that promises to be fun. There will be lunch along a river, a stop for a sample of jumbo sweetness and an exciting culinary event. But best of all, it will all be a mystery which adds to the excitement.
