  • Library giving away books Sept. 22
    Just like your garden in the backyard, once in a while libraries have to undergo a weeding project. It’s not like we want to discard books but the fact is that many of the titles we purchase are not destined to become timeless classics, never to be discarded. 
    Over the past couple of months assistant director Kim Riley has been busy pulling older titles off the shelf and deleting them from our collection. As you can see from the accompanying picture, library director Steve Martin is surrounded by stacks of withdrawn books.

  • Early morning newspaper delivery routes available this summer. Delivery time varies from 90 minutes to three hours. These are NOT home delivery newspaper routes but rather deliveries to locations like convenience stores, post offices and newspaper racks. Contract rates negotiable but average between $10 and $12 per hour.

  • Rotarians updated on growing company
    Sheridan Rotary members were pleased to welcome Dr. Doug Webel to a recent meeting. Dr. Webel received his PhD in Comparative Nutrition from the University of Illinois in 1997, just prior to coming to Sheridan to work for what was then JBS United Feeds. Dr. Webel grew up on a small farm in Illinois where his family operated a successful hog operation so animal nutrition was a natural fit for his academic career. He has only ever worked for United Animal Health, beginning in the nutrition research lab 20 years ago and culminating with his current position as company CEO.

  • Got items from Hobbs era? Share with museum
    Many residents of the Sheridan community are aware that the Sheridan Historical Society has purchased what used to be the old Hippodrome Theater and are converting it into a new museum. The present museum—located catty corner across the street from the Hippodrome building—is too small to accommodate all the materials that have been collected over the years and there is no display space available for special exhibits.
    The new museum is expected to be open by late summer or early fall 2019. It will contain space for up to a half dozen permanent and rotating special exhibit alcoves depicting Sheridan’s history. One of the permanent alcove displays will be dedicated to the Larry Hobbs Basketball Era, roughly 1948 to 1962. Plans call for lots of pictures and lots of authentic basketball memorabilia.

  • Sheridan looking for a few, good cheerleaders

    Sheridan Community Recreation — aka, the Rec Board — has a special committee of ladies who are busy trying to find a few community youngsters to participate in cheerleading during the upcoming school year. Focusing right now on football season, they are also looking ahead to basketball season, too.

    Encouraging young people to participate in sports events, including being a cheerleader, is important to their early development. Sheridan is blessed to have an organization like the Sheridan Rec Board which over the years has built a solid reputation for caring about our youth and promoting cheerleading and other sports events as wholesome activities.

  • Scammahorn family continues DQ tradition
    The Sheridan Dairy Queen restaurant on 236th Street over on the southeast side of town has been a mainstay of the Sheridan community for years. In December of 2015 the store was purchased by present owners Jeff and Lucy Scammahorn who continue the fine DQ tradition in Sheridan.
    The Scammahorn’s are not absentee managers. Every day finds Jeff hard at work managing the kitchen. Wife Lucy is right there with him, managing the administrative end of things as well as making ice cream cakes and more. Daughter Vanna pitches in to do her share of the kitchen work. This is a real family operation.

  • One of the highlights of the summer for many folks in Hamilton County is hitting the links! Another highlight is the opportunity to grow our businesses through networking outdoors . . . without freezing to death!
    That's why the annual Hamilton North Chamber Golf Outing is such a perfect event! Not only is this the main fundraiser for the Chamber, but it continues to grow year after year.
    And the best news is that you can get in on this year's event when it tees off on Tuesday, Aug. 28!

  • Rotarians spruce up Veterans Park
    Community service organizations make a huge difference. Whether it's volunteerism, donations, awareness or some other service they perform, the impact is positive and measurable.
    Sheridan Rotary is no different. So if you've noticed the fact that the gardens and shrubs at Veterans Park are nicer, you don't have to look any further than the Rotarians.

  • 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.
