“IS IT TRUE” SEPTEMBER 10 2018

first_imgWe hope that today’s “IS IT TRUE ” will provoke honest and open dialogue concerning issues that we, as responsible citizens of this community, need to address in a rational and responsible way? IS IT TRUE we are hearing that several Evansville City Councilmen and taxpayers are disappointed with Mayor Winnecke for not holding public hearings concerning the design, costs, and location of the proposed the $28 million dollars Deaconnes Aquatic Center at Garvin Park?  …that some people are now saying that the Mayor has seemly adopted a benevolent dictator style of managing City Government?IS IT TRUE that last week we predicted that the Mayor will stack the City Council Chambers at this evening City Council meeting with supporters of the proposed $28 million dollars Deaconess Aquatic Center at Garvin Park?  …when the Mayor makes his public pitch to City Council this evening to build the Deaconess Aqua Center at Garvin Park we hope that they will ask him to give them a detailed breakdown on the legal agreement made between him and Deaconess Hospital concerning the naming rights of this projects?IS IT TRUE we hope that Mayor Winnecke will also give City Council detailed information concerning the role that EVSC is going to play in the development of the Deaconess Aquatic Center at Garvin Park?IS IT TRUE we still stand by our prediction that once the $28 million Deaconnes Aquatic Center is finished Mayor Winnecke will sign a contract with the local YMCA to manage the new Aquatic Center at Garvin Park?  …we hope that this evening the Mayor will provide City Council with detailed information concerning the financial commitments he made with the officials at the YMCA to manage the Deaconess Aquatic Center once it is built?IS IT TRUE that “Jacobsville Join In” is sponsored by ECHO Housing and received their operating funds from the Evansville DMD?  …recently they closed their North Main Street offices without fanfare?…we hope the reason for the abrupt closing of “Jacobsville Join In” office located on North Main Street didn’t have anything to do with the current “Forensic Audit” being conducted at ECHO Housing Corporation?  …it’s time for the officials at DMD and ECHO Housing Corporation to come forward and make a public statement concerning this issue?IS IT TRUE we are told when Mayor Winnecke didn’t allow his Deputy Mayor to publically welcome the President of the United States to Evansville recently it really hurt the credibility of his Deputy Mayor status?IS IT TRUE we are extremely pleased that Evansville City Council member and well-known animal advocate Missy Mosby took a public stand concerning the cat freezing controversy at the Spencer County Animal Shelter? …we commend Ms. Mosby for contacting the Spencer County Sheriffs Department and turning over the text messages of the shelter’s workers to the authorities? IS IT TRUE we are told that Missy Mosby has also contacted a friend in law enforcement and he has handed over pertinent information concerning the Spencer County cat freezing controversy over to the Indiana State Police? …we are also been told that letters and newspaper articles have been turned over to officials of the state and national Humane Society and PETA? …Ms. Mosby has declared that she won’t stop fighting for the humane treatment of animals? …we give five (5) cheers to Missy Mosby and her supporters for standing up for the humane treatment of animals and their rights?IS IT TRUE that the McCurdy Hotel water bill and sewer issue has been out of the news lately? …we know like to if this $1.5 million water and sewer bill have been paid or if a settlement has been made?IS IT TRUE that Evansville City County Attorney Joshua A. Claybourn writes an interesting blog entitled “Finding Our Sense of National Identity”…we highly recommend that you read it because it’s extremely informative?IS IT TRUE since the revelation that Evansville City Controller Russ Lloyd Jr., CPA hasn’t paid the $369,000 in Victory Theater bills for 2017 we wonder if he has taken the $369,000 from the 2018 city budget to pay for the operating expenses of the Victory Theater for 2017?  …we also wonder how City Controller Lloyd is going to find the money to pay for the Victory Theater bills for 2018? …we hope that this question will be asked at the current City of Evansville budget hearings?IS IT TRUE in all of this hubbub we have also learned that there will be another arena football team coming to Evansville and will be called the Indiana Firebirds?…it is expected that the Firebirds will make Ford Center their home and while we wish them well, Evansville has not been a place that semi-professional football has found financial success?…if the Firebirds can’t draw more paying customers than the Icemen, Thunderbolts, or Bluecats have they are destined for a spot on that list of 50 something pro sports teams that have flamed out in Evansville?…with rents what they are and tickets bringing what they will it will take average paying crowds of 5,000 to have a viable indoor football team?…that is a long shot if there ever was one?Todays “Readers Poll” question is: Where should the proposed Deaconess Aquatic Center be built?”Please take time and read our articles entitled “STATEHOUSE Files, CHANNEL 44 NEWS, LAW ENFORCEMENT, READERS POLL, BIRTHDAYS, HOT JOBS” and “LOCAL SPORTS”.  You now are able to subscribe to get the CCO daily.If you would like to advertise on the CCO please contact us [email protected] FacebookTwitterCopy LinkEmailSharelast_img
