Oct. 20 – A three-year employee at the Community Justice Center of Madison County has received the Correctional Counselor of the Year Award from the Indiana Correctional Association. Malachi Young, the coordinator of the Restorative Justice Department, was presented with the statewide award during the annual Indiana Corrections Association conference. “ICA is a huge organization with a lot of very good people who work in the field, so it was an honor to receive this award,” Young said. “It was an honor just to receive a nomination.”

Oct. 22 – To help heighten awareness of domestic violence, the Anderson Police Department will assign a full-time investigator to work with Alternatives, Inc. The investigator will be appointed by Police Chief Ed Leonard with input from Mary Jo Lee, executive director of Alternatives, Inc., and begin in November. Lee said there has not been a decline in the number of domestic violence cases in Anderson and Madison County. “As we raise awareness of the crime, the case reports will increase,” Lee said. “Domestic violence is one of the most under-reported crimes.”

25 Years Ago — 1988

Oct. 23 – Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. left a blueprint for living, the son who bears the civil rights leader’s name said Saturday. Some 500 people gathered to hear Martin Luther King III speak of the higher love needed to solve the world’s problems, watch the unveiling of a statue and hear about its meaning. The eight-foot bronze likeness of civil rights leader Martin Luther King Jr. stands at the intersections of Pendleton and Madison avenues and 22nd Street, and was formally unveiled Saturday following the speech by his son.

Oct. 23 – Police said two bingo raids in the past three weeks show authorities will respond to complaints against the games. Both Anderson games were shut down and equipment confiscated.

A warrant charging Calvin Fudge of Parker City with promoting professional gambling was issued Monday out of Madison County Circuit Court I, according to Madison County Prosecutor William Lawler Jr.
