“IS IT TRUE” AUGUST 14, 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 at last nights City Council meeting 8 out of 9 members voted to relocate the LST next to Tropicana-Evansville? …that 2nd Ward City Councilwoman Missy Mosby requested that Council hold off voting for the relocation of the LST until she receives more information because she has some unanswered questions about this multi-million dollar project?  …we commended Ms. Mosby for displaying good common business sense in opposing voting for this issue at last nights City Council meeting?IS IT TRUE that City Councilwoman Missy Mosby would like to know who will pay for the $3 million dollar bill to dismantle the boat dock located at Marina Pointe once the LST moves down the river?IS IT TRUE that City Councilwoman Missy Mosby would like to know why all of the LST Board Of Directors members live out of the area?  …could this be considered a “Taxation Without Representation” issue?IS IT TRUE that there is a fly in the ointment that just popped up with the Houston based company that is on track to acquire Vectren?…CenterPoint Energy just recorded a quarterly loss of $75 Million?…Vectren is a consistently profitable utility that seemly enjoys a favorable treatment from the Indiana Utility Regulatory Commission (IURC)?  … perhaps CenterPoint Energy needs to put some of the gilded management team at Vectren in charge of teaching them how to become a more profitable electrical provider in the State of Texas?IS IT TRUE Texas is, of course, a state where their deregulation is the rule of law so there are no protected legislated monopolies?… some of our readers wonder if Vectren is being acquired to de-emphasize competition in the energy marketplace?IS IT TRUE CenterPoint Energy $75M loss may not be much in the big picture but there is one thing that the Vectren people do not have experience with and that is operating a utility in a de-regulated state so they probably won’t be heading for Texas any time soon?…we are told that the cost of electricity in Texas is on the order of half of what it is in the greater Evansville area?IS IT TRUE after spending two years in Evansville, The Small College Basketball Hall Of Fame has found new a new home?  ..yesterday it was announced that the 2018 Small College Basketball of Fame Induction Ceremony and Hall of Fame Classic will move to St. Joseph, Missouri, in conjunction with Missouri Western State and the St. Joseph Convention and Visitors Bureau?  …that the Ford Center and the Evansville Sports Corporation jointly sponsored the Small College Basketball Hall Of Fame for the last two years?  …this situation is not only embarrassing to the Vanderburgh/Evansville Vistors and Convention Bureau but also to the Evansville Sports Corporation?  …we wonder how many thousands of dollars of taxpayers money was spent on this failed venture?Todays“Readers Poll” question is: Should City Council have known who are paying the $3 million dollar costs to dismantle the dock at Marina Pointe before approving the move of the LST to the Tropicana area?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]: City-County Observer Comment Policy.  Be kind to people.
