Back in the News: Jan. 27

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

10 Years Ago — 2003

Jan. 27 — As a result of a delay in the reassessment and the lack of a property tax rate for this year, Madison County could run out of cash for the operation of government services by the end of March. “In two to three months, the general fund will be depleted,” said Otis Cox, president of the Madison County Board of Commissioners. Cox said the county will have to borrow $5 million from the Indiana Bond Bank.

Jan. 30 — A power failure Saturday forced the release of 34,000 gallons of partially treated wastewater into the White River by the Anderson waste water facility. State officials called to monitor the water quality said the incident occurred due to a power outage that lasted about an hour. “Our emergency response team was out there, and there were no adverse effects found in the river,” said Bonnie Nash, spokeswoman for the Indiana Department of Environmental Management.

25 Years Ago — 1988

Jan. 27 — Construction of the Raible Avenue bridge is at the top of the agenda for county government in 1988. Commissioner James Donahue gave the “State of the County” address Tuesday at the Anderson Rotary Club meeting. He explained construction bids for the $3.9-million bridge over White River are scheduled to be received in August. Donahue said it will take 15 months to complete construction of the four-lane bridge and the approaches at Ninth Street and Van Buskirk Road.

Jan. 29 — Legislation which would enable Madison County to implement a 1 percent food and beverage tax was passed by the Indiana House on Wednesday. The legislation was approved 94-4 by state legislators. The bill will now be considered by the Indiana Senate. The bill is sponsored by Senators Michael Rogers of New Castle and William McCarty of Anderson.

50 Years Ago — 1963

Jan. 30 — An Indiana Reformatory inmate is being held in custody for the fatal stabbing of another inmate which occurred after an argument between the two yesterday afternoon. Held is Virgil R. Plain, 26, Indianapolis, for the death of John David Vearo, 19, Clinton. Vearo, according to state police, was stabbed five times in the chest with a makeshift knife, evidently constructed of scrap metal.

Jan. 31 — About 50 policemen from 10 Hoosier cities, all members of the Indiana Police Firearms Training Association, met in Anderson yesterday to discuss plans for a statewide pistol match to be conducted here this September. It was the second general session of the state organization, bringing to this city police officers from as far south as Evansville and as far north as Elkhart. The IPFTA was organized in Muncie last October.

100 Years Ago — 1913

Jan. 29 — Frank Remy, 116 W. 12th Street, reported to the police early this morning that a horse and wagon was standing in his yard. The horse and wagon proved to be the mail wagon used at the post office. A new horse has been put into service and it walked off last night and wandered in to Mr. Remy’s yard.

Jan. 30 — Wire wheels for automobiles will be among the products of the Hill-Standard Manufacturing Company, of this city, within a short time, according to Hugh Hill, president of the company. Mr. Hill stated that the plant, already producing an enormous number of wire wheels for smaller vehicles, would not require much time to prepare for the making of automobile wheels. It is thought that most automobile manufacturers will be switching from artillery wheels to wire wheels within a year or two.
