An Anderson man was killed crossing Scatterfield Road last week. (Article published Oct. 6)

THB: According to police, a street light was non-functional at the time of the accident also.

Anderson University to cut theater, French and philosophy majors, (Nov. 5)

◆“ I majored in French at Anderson. I became a French teacher and was an educator for 33 years before retiring. I took graduate level courses at IU and Purdue, and in France, and my ability to use the French language that I acquired at Anderson allowed me to be successful elsewhere. This is sad.”

THB: Sign of the times.

Former Elwood park official found not guilty on charges over how he handled public funds. (Nov. 7)
