Back in the News: Nov. 10

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

10 Years Ago – 2003

Nov. 13 – Jennifer and Wayne Seybold had hoped that they would see skaters gliding across the ice in Anderson’s Town Center come Friday. That was the idea two weeks ago when invitations were sent out for the community to attend the grand reopening of the Seybold Skating Center. But warm weather and construction problems delayed the seasonal rink’s opening. The rink should be open soon, depending on the weather, but no later than January.

Nov. 13 – Anderson’s Central Services site, 550 Baxter Road, was evacuated Wednesday afternoon following a hydrogen chloride leak in a small concrete outbuilding at the Water Pollution Control Plant. The Anderson Fire Department, Madison County Emergency Management and Madison County Hazardous Materials Team were called to the plant at 12:20 p.m. Plant Superintendent Randy Hamilton said a valve malfunctioned as a plant employee, Dave Robinson, was disconnecting a 600-pound cylinder that had 400 pounds of hydrogen chloride left in it. Fortunately the liquid ended up freezing, minimizing leakage, and the emergency was addressed with no injuries and little interruption to the surrounding neighborhood, which didn’t have to be evacuated.

25 Years Ago – 1988

Nov. 11 – A 35 percent hike in city sewer rates and a $6 million bond issue received initial approval from the Anderson City Council Thursday night. The rate increase would begin Jan. 1. A final reading of the two ordinances is expected next month after a Dec. 2 public hearing. Both plans are needed to fund a mandated $9.6 million project to upgrade the city’s primary waste water treatment plant on Moss Island Road.

Nov. 11 – Comic strip characters Garfield and Odie will be among the attractions Sunday at the grand opening of Applewood Centre, 60th Street and Scatterfield Road. The celebration will begin at 1 p.m. with the release of balloons from the recently opened Pay Less Super Market, according to Judy C. Miller, vice president of Big Apple Advertising Agency. The Anderson University Wind Ensemble will perform at 1:30 p.m.
