25 Years Ago – 1989

January 20 — Two outstanding high school seniors are having the time of their lives during the presidential inauguration festivities in Washington, D.C. Robert Nicholson, 18, of Highland High School, and Patrick Reis, 17, of Madison Heights High School, will attend today’s swearing in ceremony of George Bush as 41st President of the United States on the west front of the U.S. Capitol. Nicholson and Reis have been in Washington with 500 other outstanding students from across the country as part of the 1989 Youth Inaugural Conference.

January 22 — On Jan. 11, a multi-agency police task force began keeping a careful eye on Anderson resident Rual S. Hogue. Six Anderson detectives had already begun watching his house a week earlier. Hogue, the suspected “cat burglar” in a two-year statewide investigation, didn’t make a wrong move until Jan. 16. Police were waiting. They arrested him in Greenfield, alleging he broke into a home and stole $70 cash and a new set of bath towels. Police believe he may be responsible for as many as 250 “cat burglar” type break-ins, from Fort Wayne to Evansville.
