10 Years Ago – 2003

Dec. 2 – No matter how many punches are thrown, Madison County real estate is staying the course, real estate officials say. “I think that right now, it is a good time to purchase a home in Madison County,” said Betty Mitchell, owner of Mitchell Company Realtors in Anderson. The latest statistics from the Indianapolis Board of Realtors show that in October, pending sales in Madison County were up 33 percent from a year ago and average sale prices, year to date, edged up slightly.

Dec. 5 – Anderson Mayor-elect Kevin Smith is planning to combine city departments under his administration to reduce operating costs. Smith announced that the Personnel and Insurance and Human Relations Departments will merge after Jan. 1. He said the position of director of human relations, currently occupied by Mildred Powell, will be eliminated. Other staff positions in human relations will then report to the director of the Personnel Department.

25 Years Ago – 1988

Dec. 1 – Plans for the proposed $1.1 million Lynnwood Village subsidized housing complex have cleared their final hurdle. Work on the project is expected to begin in December. The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development has approved a general construction contract awarded for the project by the Anderson Housing Authority, Shirley Weatherly, housing authority director, said. Lynnwood Village, planned for a six-acre tract of land on the west side of East Lynn Street, will include six buildings with four units each, a community/office building and a playground.

Dec. 5 – The Madison Heights High School C team won the state chess tournament’s senior high school division at Eastside Middle School. The local team had four match points to take the championship. The tournament attracted 265 participants in 66 teams from all over Indiana. “Indiana is one of the stronger states in the nation in scholastic chess,” tournament director Mike Zabawa, English teacher at Southside Middle School, said.
