Back in the News: April 20

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

10 Years Ago – 2004

April 21 – The Edgewood Baptist Church now is completely inside the town limits of Edgewood. The Town Council made it official by passing an ordinance annexing the western portion of the church property. Attorney J.R. Builta explained that a parcel belonging to the church was in the city of Anderson, which complicated the permit process during the church’s recent building project. The older part of the church building was in the town of Edgewood, and the church asked Anderson to de-annex its corner of the property, which Anderson agreed to provided a provision be added to return the property should it ever go into private hands.

April 22 – Anderson residents along the White River and other flood-prone areas received good news in that rates for flood insurance are decreasing. On the 40th anniversary of the 1964 flood, city officials announced that flood insurance rates would be dropping 5 percent this year and possibly by 20 percent in 2005. Mayor Kevin Smith said the highest flood recorded in Anderson was in 1913 when the river crested at 23.6 feet, and in 1964 the level was 19.4 feet. Last year the river crested at 19.5 feet, the fifth worst flood in the city’s history.

25 Years Ago – 1989

April 20 – “Bigger is not better” was the clear message from nearly 30 speakers addressing the Anderson Community Schools Facilities Task Force. The committee faced nearly a full house in the Anderson High School auditorium for approximately four hours. Speaker after speaker attacked the task force’s consolidation plan. “It shows the foresight of the men who invented the Edsel,” said Dr. Philip Foley, Anderson Indians team physician doctor. Anderson High School teachers and students shared the podium with parents and alumni setting forth reasons AHS should not be closed.
