ANDERSON, Ind. —
Madison Park Church of God Senior Pastor Jim Lyon will leave the church June 30. (April 11)
“Such a wonderful guy. Madison Park is a healthy and vibrant church with solid leadership all around. They will continue to thrive. God will use Jim to take the movement to new heights. Exciting days ahead.”
THB: With his new post at the Church of God Ministries he will continue his work of making a difference.
A Herald Bulletin editorial opined that the city needs to act faster on westside development around the site of the former Edgewood Plaza and Kmart area. (April 11)
“If I was opening a business, the west side is the LAST place I would want to open one. Until that area cleans itself up there is little chance of it being redeveloped. The city can’t force people to open shop there. The area would be far better served by turning the area into green space and calling it an accomplishment.”
THB: Of course the city can’t force businesses to locate to this area, but they can be more aggressive in their search. Point well taken about cleanup. Every side of this town needs to cleaned up, with the warmer weather resident need to start in their own backyards and front yards too.
