Back in the News: Nov. 17

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

10 Years Ago – 2003

Nov. 18 – This was the first year United Way of Madison County did not publicly cite a specific fund-raising goal. The organization wanted to focus on giving to see results in the community, not just an achievement in numbers. As predicted a few weeks ago, donations didn’t quite match up to previous results. The Madison County chapter took in $1.9 million, down 17 percent from last year’s $2.3 million. “We’ve had a very challenging year,” said Russ Towner, campaign chair. “When we found out the campaign was lagging, we wondered if we did the right thing.” Russ said loss of manufacturing jobs was the primary reason for the reduction in fund-raising.

Nov. 19 – Another chunk of money has fallen into place for the Flagship Enterprise Center, hastening the start of construction. The Indiana Department of Commerce on Tuesday granted Anderson $1.5 million for Indiana’s second certified technology park. Approximately $1.25 million will be earmarked for construction and $300,000 for operational expenses. The center will be located at the entrance of The Flagship business park. Charles Staley, president of the Flagship Enterprise Center, said it was news the organization had been waiting for from the state. “Actual construction work should start in February or March, depending on the weather,” Staley said.

25 Years Ago – 1988

Nov. 17 – Johanna Hurwitz loves books and knows what it takes to bring characters to life. Hurwitz, a former teacher and children’s librarian, is a popular author of about 20 children’s books. She spoke to a group ranging in age from elementary students to adults at the Anderson Public Library Wednesday about the experiences that led her to create the unique characters in her books. The program was sponsored by Tri Kappa Sorority in conjunction with Children’s Book Week.
