Bicentennial Time Capsule buried

SIDNEY — Buried in the base of the statue of General Shelby is a time capsule. Fabricated from stainless steel by workers at Lochard Inc., the small box was sealed and carefully placed in the base of the statue sitting on bricks from the former Children’s Home.

“The time capsule’s opening was not quite as large as I anticipated,” Bicentennial Co-Chair Mike Barhorst said, “so some of the items we had intended to include were too large. I intend to give those items to the Shelby County Historical Society for their permanent collection.”
