Back in the News: Dec. 15

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

10 Years Ago – 2003

Dec. 18 – Grants totaling $40,000 for a county-wide reading program, a new shelter for abused women, food for the needy and brighter holidays among other projects were awarded by the Madison County Community Foundation. “The last two years have been trying for all non-profit organizations,” said Leslie White, foundation executive director. “We were not certain we could offer a grant cycle this year. The board decided to continue the cycle.” Organizations benefiting from the grants included Alternatives, Inc., Madison County Community Health Care Center, Second Harvest Food Bank and the Anderson Public Library, among others.

Dec. 20 – The city of Anderson received an early Christmas present with the announcement that Home Design Products has purchased the former Magnequench building and will create more than 100 jobs. Home Design Products, which already has operations in Alexandria, announced that it purchased the facility at Scatterfield Road and Interstate 69 for a new production facility. The jobs are expected to pay an average of $15 per hour. The company is also moving its headquarters from Indianapolis to Anderson.

25 Years Ago – 1988

Dec. 16 – Plans to build a $2.5 million, seven-auditorium movie theater complex at Applewood Centre were approved by the Anderson Board of Zoning Appeals. Construction of the complex is expected to begin early next spring, with opening planned for August. The 1,800-seat, seven-screen theater will sit across the parking lot from Carnival Shoes & Fashion and along 60th Street.

Dec. 18 – Despite some funding problems this year, it appears ridership figures for the county’s TRAM system should begin to rebound. Rosalee Bernard, chief local assistance planner for the Madison County Council of Governments, said that with a stable funding source in place for 1989, increased ridership for the Transportation for Rural Areas of Madison County can be expected. In November, the Madison County commissioners awarded the 1989 TRAM contract to Emergency Medical Ambulance Services. Started in 1985, the TRAM system provides transportation for residents living outside Anderson.
