“IS IT TRUE” FEBRUARY 7, 2019

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 that earlier this week the Vanderburgh County Commissioners unanimously approved (3-0) an MOU (Memorandum of Understanding) with American Structure Point so they can start designing the new addition to the Vanderburgh County Jail? …this MOU releases $500,000 to AmericanStructure Point so they can start the Architectural and Engineering work on the new addition to the jail?  …that AmericanStructure Point has approximately 120 days to finalize a mutually agreed upon jail design? …yesterday the Vanderburgh County Council also approved this funding request?  …It’s great to see a consensus among the County Commissioners and County Council in the funding request to begin the design work on the new addition to the Vanderburgh County jail? …we also would like to thank Vanderburgh County Commissioners Ben Shoulders and Jeff Hatfield, Sherriff Dave Wedding, and the Vanderburgh County Building Authority Director, Dave Rector for the outstanding work they have done on this project so far? …we also commend all parties for agreeing that American StructurePoint should do the Engineering and Architectural design work on the new addition on the jail?IS IT TRUE last year it was announced that the National Gridiron League newest addition will be the Indiana Firebirds from Evansville, Indiana?  …it was also announced that the Indiana Firebirds of Evansville Indiana will play there indoors arena football home games at Ford Center beginning in March of 2019?  …that last year Scott Schoenike, the Executive Director of the Ford Center told the Courier and Press; “that he has been in conversations with several leagues during the past few years but waited for the right match.”  that Schoenike also said; “that the city believe they have found one in the National Gridiron League”? ….that a lot of people are looking forward to watching Arena Football at the Ford Center?….we wonder why we haven’t seen any advanced marketing effort by the Ford Center in promoting the Evansville Indiana Firebirds first home game in March 2019 at the Ford Center?IS IT TRUE that there was recently a patronage article online about the value that the downtown Doubletree is reportedly creating?…there is strength in numbers and just because some of the supporters of the subsidized edifice are cheerleading does not mean the numbers are working?…when real numbers showing over 65% occupancy at paying rates of $125 per night are made public, the downtown Doubletree will have proven to be a viable unsubsidized hotel?…until then articles touting its potential are nothing but fluff?…the same meaningless cheerleading went on with the Ford Center until it became blatantly obvious that the “it will pay for itself from day one” claims were nothing but hot air from aspiring former Mayor seeking a higher office?IS IT TRUE we wonder why the former owner of the Evansville Iceman Hockey didn’t send Mayor Winnecke a thank you note to him for forcing him to leave town? …it’s obvious that the Evansville Thunderbolts are losing money and Ron Geary’s Jacksonville, Fla. IceMen is doing extremely well financially? …that the Jacksonville IceMen home games average attendance is around 6,000 patrons per game and are ranked 3rd in attendance out of the 27 teams in the ECHL?  …the Evansville Thunderbolts home game attendance count is somewhere in the 2,000 range?   …when the Evansville IceMen played at the Ford Center they paid around $10,000 a game and it’s been reported that the Evansville Thunderbolts pays a $1,000 for each home game?IS IT TRUE that on page 2 article 5 of the federal indictment of Stephanie Tenbarge for stealing from Echo Housing it clearly states that all checks over $600 required two signatures?…that the signatures required for checks over $600 would be Stephanie Tenbarge and a member of the Echo Housing Board of Directors that was not named?…this begs the question about how many checks were written for over $600 and who was the second signature on those checks?…any board member who signed such checks for goods, services, or real estate taxes that assisted Ms. Tenbarge of allegedly defrauding Echo Housing should submit to questioning?  …attached is the link of the Federal indictment of the former ECHO HOUSING Director Stephanie Tenbarge Indictment.IS IT TRUE that the ECHO HOUSING spin doctors are working overtime to convince the general public that all is well since the former Executive Director has been indicted for fraud? …we wonder how the ECHO HOUSING Board of Directors is going to replenish the $150,000 plus of missing money from the agency coffers?  …we predict if the  ECHO Housing Board of Directors try to collect money from the insurance company who carries their employee fraud insurance policy they will quickly realize that everything isn’t as rosy as their spin doctors are telling people?IS IT TRUE that Bryan Bennett is doing the marketing and social media work for the Alex Burton campaign for 4th Ward City Council?IS IT TRUE that our GOP “Mole” tell us that the local Republican party may have a contested primary race in the At-Large City Council race? …we are told that the party movers and shakers are really upset with the possibility of having a contested race in the Republican primary?IS IT TRUE that the Political Director of Mayor Winnecke was recently arrested for driving under the influence?  …he has been fired by the Winnecke For Mayor campaign manager?  …recently the head coach of the Evansville Thunderbolts was also arrested for driving under the influence but was not fired?  …he was suspended from coaching for one week? …we always been told that “What’s Good For The Goose Is Good For The Gander?”IS IT TRUE we been informed that a candidate for the Evansville City Council has had the crime-fighting “Guardian” van sitting right in front of his apartment for a while?  …a friend of the individual running for City Council tells us that his buddy has no idea why the Evansville Police Department decided to park the “Guardian” van in front of his apartment because he has no knowledge that his area has a problem with crime?Todays“Readers Poll” question is: Did the Mayor make a major mistake when he didn’t do everything in his power to convince the Evansville IceMen to stay in Evansville?Please go to our link of our media partner Channel 44 News located in the upper right-hand corner of the City-County Observer so you can get the up-to-date news, weather, and sports.If you would like to advertise on the CCO please contact us at City-County [email protected]: Any comments posted in this column do not represent the views or opinions of the City-County Observer or our advertisers.
