Back in the News: Sept. 1

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

10 Years Ago – 2003

Sept. 2 – Approximately 23 Anderson roads and intersections were closed by heavy floodwaters. More homesand yards were flooded. When that happened, not only did emergency agencies come to the rescue, but friends, family and good Samaritans. Lois Richardson’s family arrived at her house at 821 Laurel Ave. Monday to salvage some of her belongings when her basement flooded nearly to its ceiling. The city placed roadblocks between the Eighth and Ninth street entrances to Laurel Avenue.

Sept. 4 – Anderson residents got their chance to speak about world issues for national television. Gathering in front of the Paramount Theatre, residents and city firefighters crowded around to participate in a documentary called “Main Street, USA.” Working within the framework of the second anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks, the show captures everyday Americans’ views of the attacks, war and how their community can improve. The show’s producer, Matt O’Neill, said Anderson was one city out of a dozen located east of the Mississippi River that the crew visited on its whistle stop tour to film the show.

25 Years Ago – 1988

Sept. 1 – Moving into a newly renovated office building will make the Anderson Housing Authority’s Christmas complete. “I’m very optimistic that maybe by Christmas we’ll be moving in,” Shirley Weatherly, director of the housing authority, said during the agency’s meeting Wednesday. The authority is purchasing for $110,000 the former Anderson Community Schools food services building at 528 W. 11th St.

Sept. 2 – Two modern signs replaced the 27-year-old original at the downtown McDonald’s restaurant, ending an era in the store’s history. “A few people came into our store and couldn’t believe we were getting rid of the old sign,” said Kelly Cochran, store manager. Owner/operator Robert Terhune said maintenance on the sign was becoming a problem, and “it no longer served the kind of image that McDonald’s wants to portray.”
