ON THE NIGHT OF JAN. 10 a squall line passed through the mid-section of the country killing 11 people across several states. In Arkansas, there were 10 tornadoes but no deaths and only one injury. In Grant County, high winds toppled trees that fell over roads and highways and knocked out power to thousands. The Center Grove area along U.S. Hwy. 270, east of Sheridan, seemed to get the worst of the local weather. This property, located near Center Grove, had downed trees that barely missed a residence.

At most schools, if you find a vending machine, the most you will be able to get is a tasty or healthy snack. Sheridan Intermediate School offers something a bit more substantial: books.
Recently, the school implemented vending machines that dispense books to students who had earned a coin through special acts.
