Back in the News: Feb. 17

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

10 Years Ago — 2003

Feb. 17 — More than 30,000 children have received free medical and dental care through Saint John’s Children’s Clinic for the past 30 years, and now the clinic plans to expand its services with hopes of reaching more families in need. The clinic will treat children who are Medicaid-eligible, according to Jim Moore, Saint John’s executive vice president who oversees clinic operations. He said around 140 children visit the clinic at 19th and Meridian streets on a monthly basis. “We believe that we’re going to double,” Moore said.

Feb. 18 — The city of Anderson will receive $1 million from the federal government to begin work on the planning economic development thoroughfare along the north side of I-69. Anderson city officials have proposed the development from Ind. 38 in Pendleton to Hoosier Park along the north side of the interstate. It would allow for direct interstate access from Layton and Park roads on the city’s west side.

25 Years Ago — 1988

Feb. 17 — Additional proof that layers of sand found on the proposed Mallard Lake landfill are not interconnected is being sought by the Indiana Department of Environmental Management. The JM Corp., which is owned by Jeff and Mark Reed, intends to use 13 acres of the Mallard Lake Property at the intersection of County Roads 300E and 300N for a sanitary landfill operation. The brothers have been seeking an operating permit from the state for nine years. The state is concerned that water flowing from the proposed landfill site would enter the layers of sand and seep contaminated water into area aquifers.

Feb. 22 — Two local men escaped injury Sunday when a part-time flight instructor successfully landed an airplane that could not engage one landing wheel. Emergency crews from Anderson and Chesterfield were dispatched to the Anderson Municipal Airport about 2:38 p.m. after being informed of the situation by the airport controller. George Mock, 55, 757 N. County Road 500E, brought the airplane to a safe landing, setting the one wheel down on the landing strip and slowing the plane before the left wing tip touched the ground. Firefighters estimated the plane skidded about 50 feet before coming to a stop. There were no injuries.

50 Years Ago — 1963

Feb. 17 — Anderson High School’s 90-piece concert band will present its annual Winter Pops Concert in the high school gym. A dozen selections, testing the musical ability of all sections of the organization, have been scheduled by Band Director George Vaught. The popular Jerome Kern and George M. Cohen melodies and selections from the Broadway musical “Music Man” are also scheduled.

Feb. 20 — Madison County high schools and basketball fans will begin “divvying up” a record total of 9,014 tickets for the sectional tournament this weekend. Most schools are holding drawings among their fans to determine the ones who will receive the coveted pasteboards for the tournament. Demand for tickets is great at all schools.

100 Years Ago — 1913

Feb. 18 — By order of Chief of Police Pritchard, all the dice games in Anderson were stopped last night by patrolmen. The chief stated that numerous complaints had come to him in the past few weeks and he felt it was his duty to have the games stopped and that it would mean that dice could not be thrown in any stores in the city.

Feb. 21 — The love feast of the Progressive party brought 400 people to the new Brock building last evening. It lasted from 7:30 to nearly 11 o’clock and from the beginning to the end was as enthusiastic as though it were campaign times. The principal speech of the evening was made by W.W. Headrick, of Indianapolis, who is often regarded as a likely gubernatorial candidate three years hence. Headrick stated that he believed the next presidential campaign would find the Progressives polling more than seven million votes, becoming the majority party.

  • Bailey, Jim mug Jim Bailey: Wages were much less back then, but so were prices If you have any questions about what economists mean by inflation, just look at yesterday’s buying power.
