Back in the News: June 16

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

10 Years Ago – 2003

June 17 – Charles Wesley Naylor was a pioneer Church of God songwriter who expressed much of the movement’s theology in song. He was buried in Maplewood Cemetery in 1950. On Monday, a group of North American Convention-goers who have sung his songs for many years gathered at his gravesite to dedicate a new monument. “This is a day of rejoicing,” said Anderson University President Emeritus Robert H. Reardon. “This is a group of people who have been blessed by the music of this wonderful man.” The memorial includes a portrait of Naylor by Anderson artist David Liverett, who also designed the monument.

June 20 – As a result of the heavy spring rains, a familiar sound in Madison County is the buzzing of the dreaded mosquito and the higher than normal population of the pesky insect. Local officials are keeping a close eye on the mosquito population in hopes of preventing an outbreak of West Nile virus. Last year, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 11 people in Indiana died from the virus, although none of those were in Madison County. John Coale, chairman of the Anderson Board of Public Works, said the city intends to spray along all city streets. The Indiana Blood Center is testing all blood donations for West Nile, as required by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.

25 Years Ago – 1988

June 16 – Athletic Pool will not open this year. The Anderson Parks and Recreation Department has decided against opening the pool in Athletic Park because of the city’s water situation. “It would take several thousands of gallons (of water) to fill it,” a spokeswoman from the department said. Because of the drought conditions and the water mandate throughout the city, the department determined it is not feasible to fill and open the pool. As a result, pool hours at the other two municipal facilities – Shadyside Beach and Southside Pool will be extended beginning Saturday.
