Sheridan City Council honors careers of Stuckey and Adams

When the Sheridan City Council met last week for their monthly council meeting, one of the main topics of discussion was how much the mayor and the council appreciate the work that former Fire Chief Tim Stuckey and soon to be former Chief of Police Bob Adams have done for the city.

Giving his final monthly report, Stucky said May was an average month for the department with 30 calls for assistance from the SFD. Stuckey said that this number is typical and that nothing out of the ordinary occurred.

'It's a place of joy'

For most of her life, the small city of Sheridan represented pain and death to Paula Corrado. It was there that a B-17F carrying Corrado’s father and eight other U.S. Army Air Force crew members crashed in March of 1943, killing all of them.

But thanks to the work of American Legion Finis Gallion Post 30 and others in the Sheridan community, the crash site now represents much more to Corrado. An effort spearheaded by the post created a memorial to the crew of the Flying Fortress, as well as all those Grant County residents killed in action from World War I to the Vietnam War.
