Back in the News: Jan. 26

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

10 Years Ago – 2004

Jan. 26 – Oreon Trickey, director of The Joshua Center in Chicago, was the featured guest on the Anderson University campus during Impact Your World Week. The AU Campus Ministries office sponsors the week to offer students and the community an opportunity for worship and study with an off-campus speaker. Trickey’s program offers services for homeless women through the shelter. The public is invited to hear Trickey speak several times during the week of service.

Jan. 28 – There were some things being said about Ned Bardsley on Tuesday, and the centenarian refused to take them sitting down. Slowly rising from his wheelchair at the Anderson Country Club, he said, “I’m floored. I don’t know what to say.” “Say thank you,” prompted his wife, Ailene. The Anderson Rotary Club honored Bardsley with a special seat and presentation for his upcoming 100th birthday on Saturday, 58 years as a Rotarian and lifetime of community service. Mayor Kevin Smith declared Saturday Ned Bardsley Day in Anderson. Bardsley is a year older than Rotary’s international organization, which began in 1905.

25 Years Ago – 1989

Jan. 26 – Concerns about asbestos have added unexpected costs to the renovation of the Anderson Housing Authority’s future office building. Executive Director Shirley Weatherly told the authority’s board of commissioners that workers recently removed asbestos from the building at 528 W. 11th St. that will serve as their new offices come March. Removing the asbestos will cost $47,950, while another $11,839 will be needed to install a new ceiling, Weatherly said. Despite the additional effort, she stated the project is still on schedule.

Jan. 28 – Madison Superior Court 3 Judge Thomas Newman Jr. ordered Willie Lee English shackled and handcuffed during jury selection Friday after an angry outburst in the courtroom. English, 37, is charged with murder and could face the death penalty if convicted of killing his ex-wife, Diane English. Jury selection continued slowly throughout the day Friday. Shortly before 2 p.m., English became upset with the proceedings. Newman ordered him shackled and handcuffed, but later rescinded the order when English’s attorneys assured the judge their client would be able to restrain himself in the future.
