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

10 Years Ago – 2003

July 28 – The planned business development center in Anderson will receive $175,000 in additional funding from the federal government. The U.S. House passed the 2004 appropriation bill for Veterans Affairs and the Housing and Urban Development departments which included funding for Anderson. Rep. Mike Pence secured the funding for the center, which in June was officially named the Flagship Enterprise Center. The 40,000-square-foot facility will be used to develop new businesses for the community. Anderson has previously secured $4.5 million for the project.

July 31 – A new president has been named to take iPower Technologies from developing distributive power generators into production for a worldwide market. James E. Luckman takes over as president and chief executive officer of the Anderson-based company, replacing John H. “Jack” Combes. Combes will be vice-chairman of the board of directors. “Luckman’s extensive engine management background is ideal to move us to the next level,” Combes said.

25 Years Ago – 1988

July 29 – Disagreement over distribution of projected revenues from a county-wide food and beverage tax continued during a meeting of area officials. Anderson city leaders scheduled the meeting to inform officials from Alexan dria, Elwood and the Madison County Council of the proposed 1 percent tax and the planned distribution of the tax revenue. Anderson officials have said they would agree to an 80/20 split of the funds and noted an estimated $400,000 per year would be needed to pay off bonds for the construction of a civic center along White River.

July 31 – A rural Anderson man was jailed after his car crashed into the side of a brick house, sending a boy and his bed skidding across a bedroom. Todd E. Johns, 25, was arrested after his 1975 Trans Am crashed into the side of Floyd E. Alford’s brick house in the 2600 block of E. County Road 150 South. Johns was charged with driving while intoxicated, driving while suspended, and resisting arrest. Deputies said the boy was not harmed by the event.
