Back in the News: April 28

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

10 Years Ago — 2003

April 28 — Indianapolis has its hyperfix road project downtown this year; Anderson will have its hyperfix-up downtown. City workers, businesses, chamber members and master gardeners will descend on downtown Wednesday and also on Saturday, May 17, to shore up brick planters along Meridian Street and fill them with flowers, plants and trees. City workers will patch the street. The work is to spruce up downtown while the city waits for $2.4 million in grants next year and 2005 to remove the snake between Ninth and 12th streets, duplicating the work done in front of the Paramount Theatre Centre this year, said Lori Sylvester, Main Street director.

April 30 — The investigation into a misconduct complaint filed against Police Chief Ed Leonard has been turned over to the internal affairs unit of the Anderson Police Department by the Board of Public Safety. “The person appointed by and reporting directly to the chief is doing the investigation,” said attorney Bryan Williams, who is representing police officer Scott Clendenen. “How is this going to be a fair and impartial investigation?” Clendenen filed a misconduct complaint against Leonard and fellow officer Roger Ockomon stemming from the arrest of a former Democratic Party precinct committeeman.

25 Years Ago — 1988

April 28 — Repairs to the Eisenhower Bridge will be completed and traffic flow reopened, depending on the weather. The eastbound lanes of the East Eighth Street bridge have been completely resurfaced, according to Madison County Highway Engineer William Strange. The resurfacing is expected to give motorists better traction on the 20-year-old span during winter months, Strange said.

April 29 — Ivy Tech officials announced a new Anderson campus will be constructed at the northwest corner of 53rd and Main streets. Groundbreaking for a 45,000- to 50,000-square-foot building should take place this year, according to Roy J. Winkler, Indiana Vocational Technical College Region 6 board president. The new campus building may take two years to construct and its opening could be in 1990.

50 Years Ago — 1963

April 28 — David Hall, the young man from Green Bay, Wis., who delivered his safety message to 10,000 teenagers here last month, will fly into Anderson to lead the 1963 Madison County Car Check Parade on Saturday. Young Hall, who must spend the rest of his life in a wheelchair as a result of injuries he sustained in an automobile accident, will meet early Saturday morning with parade queens and student coordinators from each of the area high schools.

April 30 — An eight-point program of services for the mentally ill in Madison County will be presented at a countywide meeting of representatives from every segment of community life tonight at the YMCA. Local officials of the Madison County Mental Health Association point to the shocking statistic that “one out of every 10 Americans will suffer from some form of mental illness in a lifetime.” An authority on mental health, Dr. Robert E. Hardin, director of psychological service, Indiana Boy’s School, will serve as a keynote speaker.

100 Years Ago — 1913

April 29 — Articles of incorporation for a league to be known as the “Tuberculosis Crusaders” were signed at a meeting at the office of Dr. S. C. Norris last night. Joining Dr. Norris in signing the articles were J.J. Netterville, Mrs. E.B Kehrer and Albert Kehrer of this city; Dr. Etta Charles of Summitville; and Dr. F.G. Keller of Alexandria. The organization has purchased a stereopticon and 60 slides will be shown at the first public meeting, during which Dr. Norris will present a lecture on “Tuberculosis Prevention.”

April 30 — More than 50 businessmen, manufacturers and other citizens gathered at the city offices last night to talk over the “Made in Anderson” exhibit for May 31 – June 7. A most enthusiastic meeting was held, presided over by Joseph E. Hennings, the director-general for the exhibit. It was reported that due to demand for space, the exhibit will not occur on 10th Street. Eighth Street is the most probable location, although other streets are being considered.

  • Bailey, Jim mug Jim Bailey: Wages were much less back then, but so were prices If you have any questions about what economists mean by inflation, just look at yesterday’s buying power.
