Back in the News: July 7

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

10 Years Ago – 2003

July 7 – Dressed in crisp white shirts and pressed black trousers, nine musicians played as one bringing back timeless memories. The soundtrack for a generation revisited Shadyside Park on Sunday evening as the Larry Mechem Band entertained hundreds of concertgoers with their musical nod to the Big Band era. The July Fourth weekend came to a swinging crescendo as Mecham’s ensemble played selections from the greats of their genre. The evening, sponsored by Anderson Parks and Recreation, was peppered with classic standards performed by vocalist Everitt Greene.

July 10 – Sandbagging efforts in Anderson began at noon Wednesday as water crept toward homes near the intersection of West First and Henry streets just south of White River. “I parked right up at the barricades on First Street,” said Anderson Emergency Management deputy director John Kinley as he surveyed the muddy water covering the intersection. “Now they’re underwater.” Anderson Emergency Management is monitoring river levels along White River, particularly in the Irondale and Edgewater Park areas. The level was at 15.77 feet and rising, more than 5 feet above what is considered flood stage. The level is still considerably short of what has been called the “100 year flood” level, a record 23.6 feet in 1913.

25 Years Ago – 1988

July 7 – April 27, 1989 is the tentative ground-breaking date for Anderson’s new Ivy Tech campus. Completion of construction and moving in at the new 45,000-square-foot college could occur May 4, 1990. The new Ivy Tech will be located on the northwest corner of Main and 53rd streets. The Anderson architectural firm of K.R. Montgomery and Associates already has begun drawing schematics for the new Ivy Tech campus. The project was granted $3.5 million by the Indiana Legislature.

July 8 – Prominent Anderson businessman Charles B. Hollon died late Wednesday night when his single-engine plane crashed in a bean field in Henry County shortly after takeoff from Anderson Municipal Airport. Hollon, 67, was killed instantly. Hollon’s Cessna 172 Skyhawk nosedived into the field about 50 yards west of Henry County Road 500W, two-tenths of a mile south of US 36. Cause of the crash has not been determined, but police said witnesses reported hearing the plane sputtering.

    Cathy Hensley’s never been much of a drinker. It wasn’t something that interested her very much, so it seemed unfathomable that she would ever run a winery. But after her son Eric offered her and her husband, Duke, some wine he made, it changed things.

  • Jim Bailey: Traveling by passenger train was a page from the past My wife doesn’t remember riding on a full-fledged passenger train as a baby. Our children have never ridden. It’s an experience rapidly going the way of the horse and buggy and the stagecoach throughout a nation now obsessed with jumbo jets and sport-utility vehicles.
