Back in the News: Jan. 19

10 Years Ago – 2004

January 22 — Hispanic children’s art on display at the Anderson Fine Arts Center might build bridges or at least educate some visitors about different cultures. Artwork of 13 Hispanic children taking English as a Second Language classes at Anderson elementary schools is being displayed. “Our purpose was to let our Hispanic children show how they celebrate the holiday,” said Becky Gomez, assistant principal at Robinson Elementary. “The exhibit allows them to express pride in their heritage.”

January 22 — The Madison County Community Corrections advisory board voted Wednesday to close the women’s section of the work release program. The women’s program, which has 18 beds but currently only has six offenders, was never at full capacity. It was unable to cover its costs, said William Riffe, president of the board. The Community Justice Center is suffering a yearly loss of $59,280 in the women’s section.

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.
