Sheridan Senior Center

Several white signs and quilts lined the walls of the Sheridan Senior Center during its grand opening Oct. 15. The signs acknowledged donors who helped make the new facility possible, and members sewed the quilts.

National Newspaper Week

Sunday marked the beginning of the 79th National Newspaper Week. The focus this year is “Think F1rst, Know Your 5 Freedoms.” This is referring to the five freedoms listed in the First Amendment: freedom of press, speech, religion, assembly and to petition the government.

Community focused

In a world that values individualism and independence almost to an extreme, people like Dottie Fossel are instrumental in promoting community values. Fossel is hardworking and self-reliant, but also community-minded, selfless and devoted.

Meet the new veterinarian

ENNIS – Wisps of animal fur floated on Dr. Stacy Davidson’s blue jeans as she hugged the grey-blue cat, Jack, on the table. The examination room in the back of the Ennis Veterinary Hospital hosted more people than usual as equipment for a new blood-work lab was being installed.

These are the things that attracted 1st Lt. Jacob Ahmann, already a military veteran, to seek out a job in law enforcement.
