Back in the News: Nov. 24

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

10 Years Ago – 2003

Nov. 24 – Volunteers are extending the hours that the Anderson City Animal Shelter is open. A new organization, Friends of Shelter Animals, is seeking volunteers and training them to help at the shelter with everything from adoptions to walking animals. “We decided we needed to do more at the city shelter,” said Sharon Fanin, an organizer of Friends of Shelter Animals. “We heard so many people say that the hours were not convenient.”

Nov. 29 – Cowpokes Western Outfitters opened its new location in the former Kittle’s building at 1812 E. 53rd St. Friday, and it was hard to tell whether the crowds waiting for the doors to open wanted to do their Christmas shopping or get a look at the store’s new and expanded digs. “We originally planned to open here in October, but it didn’t work out, said co-owner Lynnette Boone. “It ended up working out that way (opening the new store on the day after Thanksgiving).” The new location gives Cowpokes up to 20,000 square feet compared to 5,000 at its former site a few blocks east.

25 Years Ago – 1988

Nov. 24 – The man who allegedly shot a liquor store employee during a holdup Saturday was apprehended Wednesday by Anderson police. Charges of robbery and attempted murder were lodged against Randy White, 25, 2215 W. 26th St., police said. White is alleged to have shot the store employee after she handed over the store’s money. White also is charged with the armed robbery of the United Oil Service Station, 53rd Street Parkway. That robbery occurred half an hour before the liquor store was robbed Saturday night.

Nov. 27 – Despite dark clouds and the threat of rain, several thousand area residents lined the downtown streets Saturday to welcome Minnie Mouse and Santa Claus to the “Have an Anderson Christmas” parade. More than 60 units followed the Anderson Mounted Horse Patrol, decked out for the occasion in Santa hats and red stockings, and grand marshal Minnie in the second-annual parade, sponsored by the Anderson Area Chamber of Commerce. Throngs of waving children shouting “Minnie Mouse” scrambled to retrieve candy and other prizes thrown from the passing caravan, which included local high school marching bands, drill units, business displays, holiday characters and floats.

  • Jim Bailey: The days we sat around watching the radio Kids today cannot imagine what it was like when radio was king. People sat in their living rooms, their attention glued to a large piece of furniture. You literally watched the set, and your imagination provided the picture out of what was coming over the loudspeaker.
