Back in the News: Dec. 22

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

10 Years Ago – 2003

Dec. 22 – The Anderson PAL Club's bingo license has been revoked for at least three years. The Indiana Department of Revenue suspended the bingo parlor’s license for a variety of violations, including failing to report $1.2 million in pull-tab sales. The state also found 22 illegal video slot machines. Anderson PAL Club Bingo was fined $11,000 and ordered to pay $20,500 in licensing fees. PAL president Paul Baylor said the organization is looking at alternative ways to raise funds.

Dec. 23 – Internet access at one of the city’s fire houses has been shut down after adult pornography was found on a computer hard drive. Anderson Fire Chief Mike McKinley said Monday that if the person who used the computer to access pornography is discovered, there will be disciplinary action. McKinley said the problem was discovered when the computer at Station 3 on Columbus Avenue crashed. A computer technician examining the hard drive found the pornography. McKinley said he immediately took away the station’s access to the Internet.

25 Years Ago – 1988

Dec. 22 – The fourth mugging of a holiday shopper in Anderson occurred Tuesday night. Police are warning shoppers to take extra precautions so their holidays won’t be spoiled. This time it was a 55-year-old city woman who was robbed on the east side of Mounds Mall around 9:30 p.m., according to Anderson police. Police have a suspect in this mugging but said he has no connection to the previous three. All victims have been women.

Dec. 24 – All of a $16,000 federal grant has been spent in less than two months to help 43 needy Anderson families find or retain housing. Allocation of the Homeless Grant received by JobSource Nov. 1 and administered by the Anderson Housing Authority was reported Wednesday to the authority’s board of commissioners by housing counselor Hazel Edwards. Grant funds have provided short-term help to families having trouble paying rent, rental security deposits, utility payments and the cost of food and emergency shelter.
