Back in the News: Sept. 29

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

10 Years Ago – 2003

Sept. 29 – Anderson Mayor J. Mark Lawler said he has no intention of asking Police Chief Ed Leonard to step down despite an overwhelming no-confidence vote by the Fraternal Order of Police, which was the first such vote in the history of the union concerning leadership. Lawler said he considered this a personnel matter and would not comment further.

Sept. 30 – A 22-year-old Anderson woman will find out Nov. 7 what her sentence will be for the stomping death of John F. Miller. Amy Whittaker pleaded guilty of aiding, inducing or causing murder, conspiracy to commit robbery resulting in bodily injury and other related charges. Whittaker and her attorney, Mark Maynard, entered the plea Monday after discussing the possible outcomes of a trial, which could have resulted in a life sentence without parole.

25 Years Ago – 1988

Sept. 29 – The Anderson Housing Authority has received a $20,000 federal counseling grant from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, the AHA board of commissioners learned Monday. Hazel Edwards, AHA housing counselor, said the Anderson agency is one of only 31 in a six-state region to receive the grant. The money will be used to reimburse the agency for providing counseling services to clients with regards to housing situations.

Sept. 30 – Churches are too passive in dealing with this nation’s divorce problem, Mike McManus, a syndicated religion columnist, told clergymen in Anderson Thursday. McManus, who writes the column “Ethics and Religion,” addressed a group of about 35 ministers and other counseling professionals and spouses at Anderson University’s Student Center during a luncheon in which he spoke of methods to reduce the divorce rate from 50 percent to 5 percent. The Madison County Citizens for Community Values sponsored McManus’ visit.
