The Herald Bulletin looks back at stories from The Anderson Daily Bulletin and The Anderson Herald newspapers.

10 Years Ago – 2004

Feb. 16 – A tax abatement was granted for a new company moving into the former Magnequench property that will bring 108 jobs to the city. The Anderson City Council on Thursday voted to grant a 10-year tax abatement for Resin Partners, which manufactures plastic storage units. The company, which operates under the name Home Design Products, also has a manufacturing facility in Alexandria. The firm expects to invest $12.1 million to install injection molding machines, atop the $2 million it spent to buy the building.

Feb. 20 – One of the city’s best known people at the national level, Sandi Patty, is looking to wear a new hat by running for a seat on the Anderson Community Schools board. Sandi Patty Peslis filed on Thursday with the Madison County clerk’s office to seek the East District seat on the ACS board. Patty, 47, a multiple Dove Award winner for her gospel singing, has never run for elective office before. Patty said she wants to be a voice for all the good things taking place in the Anderson educational community.

25 Years Ago – 1989

Feb. 16 – Twenty-seven years ago Bill and Gloria Gaither simply wanted to write songs and sing their music, never thinking about becoming pioneers in the gospel music field. On Wednesday, the couple’s dedication to developing their musical talents into a major business was honored. The Gaithers were inducted in the Madison County Business Leaders Hall of Fame during ceremonies at Reardon Auditorium on the campus of Anderson University. The event was sponsored by the Junior Achievement of Madison County and the Breakfast and Exchange Clubs of Anderson.

Feb. 20 – The 138th Signal Battalion of the Indiana National Guard had a good reason to celebrate Saturday night. It was the battalion’s 30th anniversary – and 350 people celebrated the occasion in a festive manner at Linder’s, 5408 Pendleton Ave. There was a reception, banquet dinner and many distinguished guests, including Maj. Gen. Richard Chastain, the 38th Division commander. Chastain praised the battalion, its combat division, “and the competent signal men and women… I salute the 138th battalion and offer my congratulations.”
