Back in the News: June 30

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

10 Years Ago – 2003

June 29 – Do-Len-Ski’s Supper Club, once a local hot spot, hopes to soon return to its glory days. The 50-year-old Chesterfield restaurant is undergoing extensive remodeling and other changes that its new owner, Vicky Massey, hopes will draw large crowds. “A lot of the customers said it really needed a face lift,” Massey said. “We want to keep the spirit and bring back the quality from those days. I see this as a landmark for the city.” The interior has mostly been gutted, with construction expected to be finished in July.

June 30 – Anderson’s Cory Liles was pleased to see an extra amount of patriotism displayed Sunday during Shadyside Celebration 2003. The 22-year-old Anderson resident believed many of the thousands of spectators at Shadyside Park were there other than just to hear music and see fireworks. “There seems to be more people here than I remember in past years. I think the war in Iraq, as well as Sept. 11 being in the back of some minds, brought many out tonight,” said Liles.

25 Years Ago – 1988

June 29 – The city of Anderson has gone back to court in its bid to remove a salvage yard from Grand Avenue. Assistant City Attorney William Kreegar filed suit in Madison Superior Court 2 contending Earl Curry and Earl Gothard, owners of Riverside Iron and Metal, 4 W. Grand Avenue, refuse to vacate the premises. The city gained title to the 2.33 acres on Feb. 25, and notified Riverside Iron and Metal it had until May 27 to surrender the property for city use. The property is intended to link the Indian Trails Riverwalk system along White River with Shadyside Lake, via the existing wetlands area.

June 30 – For the second time, bids for the Anderson Housing Authority’s $1.07 million Lynnwood Village apartment complex came in higher than budgeted. “We were hoping we would have more competitive bids. The only thing we can do is take it back to HUD,” Anderson Housing Authority Director Shirley Weatherly said following the board meeting Wednesday. During the meeting with HUD, Weatherly intends to request more money in order to complete the project. She added that it would not be feasible to reduce the size of the complex in order to meet costs.
