Back in the News: Nov. 3

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

10 Years Ago – 2003

Nov. 4 – It’s been two years since the city of Anderson started its curbside recycling program. From the look of things, the program has helped to decrease the amount of material going to landfills. “For a city Anderson’s size, we’re pretty good,” said Ron Howard, senior account executive for Republic Services of Indiana, the refuse company contracted with the city for trash and recycling pickup. “We have got more participation than I expected. There’s always room for improvement.” According to Paul Baylor, spokesman for city administration, 813 tons of recycling were collected in 2002.

Nov. 5 – Anderson voters threw off 16 years of Democratic rule Tuesday and put Republican Kevin Smith in the mayor’s office. Smith pulled in 8,947 votes to Democrat Bob Rock’s 7,821. “It’s been a wonderful day,” Smith said from Republican Party Headquarters. “I will be in my office at 9 a.m.,” said Smith. “I will begin working on putting together a transition team.” At Democrat Party Headquarters, Rock thanked his supporters while acknowledging defeat. “It was the disgruntled Democrats that attacked this party,” he said. “I’m not happy about it.”

25 Years Ago – 1988

Nov. 3 – An estimated 1,000 visitors toured the Sheraton and Holiday Inns Wednesday during the opening night of the Sixth Annual Business to Business Trade Show. The crowd included company executives, purchasing agents and buyers who reviewed a record 90 exhibits at the show, which continues today. The Business to Business Trade Show is sponsored by the Anderson Area Chamber of Commerce to encourage local businesses to seek needed products and services within the area.

Nov. 7 – After 6 ½ weeks of trial and nearly 12 hours of deliberations, a Madison County Circuit Court jury pronounced Ronald and Ricky Whitehead guilty of conspiring to deliver cocaine in Indiana. Ronald Whitehead, 56, and his son, Ricky, 25, sat quietly before the jury when Judge Fredrick Spencer called for the verdict. Judge Spencer will sentence the two on Nov. 30. Ron Whitehead could be sentenced up to 250 years behind bars and up to $50,000 in fines, while Ricky could be sentenced up to 100 years and $20,000 in fines.

  • Davis, Verna mug Verna Davis: Peace is worth fighting for Some people say they know how to find peace. We should “simply” follow our hearts, search for meaning in our lives, and fulfill our dreams. Sad to say, those things may bring us a bit of satisfaction, but they certainly don’t bring us peace.
