Back in the News: June 23

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

10 Years Ago – 2003

June 23 – As the school year drew to a close, Anderson High School calculus students put their math skills to work on behalf of the city. The 25 students quantified advantages of living or working in Anderson compared to other communities. “We’re trying to spread the word that Anderson is a viable location for business to consider,” said teacher Rick Ziuchkovski, who guided the project. The spiral-bound product – which contained 34 pages of key information on Anderson’s average cost of living, salaries, crime rate, tax rate and other data – was distributed to 100 businesses of all sizes, including Intel, UPS and United Airways.

June 25 – The Madison County Division of Family and Children Services scored lower than any other state agency reviewed this year for providing services to at-risk children. The Quality Assurance Review (QAR) found that Madison County scored 71 percent when it came to providing services to at-risk children, and 77 percent overall in providing services. The state standard is 90 percent. Bruce Stansberry, director of the Madison County office, submitted a corrective plan that was accepted by the state.

25 Years Ago – 1988

June 25 – Broadway Sales Co. was “still alive” despite the repossession of nearly 50 vehicles from its lot by Citizens Bank. Gary Schlafer, owner of the Chrysler-Plymouth dealership, said he plans to continue business despite the setback. “The bottom line is this dealership is alive, maybe not as well as we were, but we are definitely still alive,” Schlafer said. Bank representatives arrived at the dealership at 633 Broadway Thursday afternoon after obtaining a preliminary judgment order. By late Friday, Schlafer had restocked his dealership lot with about 22 used cars.

June 25 – Test well No. 1 is unsuitable for use, Anderson Water Superintendent Tom Brewer said after a city-hired contractor drilled 110 feet down at the Lafayette Plant on Hartman Road. Water was present but the ground formation – limestone and a very fine sand – was not suitable, he said. The city will continue to search for other water sources, including test drilling a potential well site on North Madison Avenue.
