IS IT TRUE at Monday night City Council meeting the General Manager of the Ford Center, Scott Schoenike stated “that his purpose was not to lose or make money, but to break even, and to bring economic development to downtown Evansville”? …Schoenike also stated, “If we can break even as a hockey team, the Ford Center is still doing well. But to break even is not what you are in business for, and that is not what most people understand. We are set up to break even in order to bring economic development.” …the Mayor was so impressed with VenuWorks mission statement on how to make the Ford Center profitable he just renew their contract to manage the Ford Center for an additional 5 years?IS IT TRUE that Mr. Schoenike’s less-than-convincing presentation caused Council Vice President, Justin Elpers to interrupt him” … Mr. Elpers stated “he just want to have a meaningful discussion about the future of hockey at the Ford Center”? …at the end of the day Mr. Elpers didn’t get a meaningful discussion from Mr. Schoenjke?IS IT TRUE that a person watching Mr. Schoenike’s presentation to Council commented, “How are we supposed to believe that one man who owns 10% of a business is responsible for 100% of the financial losses”? …the legal agreement between the City and VenuWorks for Professional Management Services states “that all operating expenses of the Franchise shall be deemed an expense of the Facility”? … What does this mean? …it mean that the “Facility” is the City of Evansville? …according to the agreement It looks like the Evansville taxpayers are responsible for all the operating expenses and losses incurred during the 2016/2017 hockey season?IS IT TRUE the attorney for former Evansville IceMen owner Ron Geary will be submitting a written request to Council President Missy Mosby asking her to allow Mr. Geary to make a formal presentation to City Council concerning Ice Hockey at the Ford Center? …we bet Councilmen Jonathan Weaver wont make any snidely remarks towards Mr. Geary during the presentation? … Scott Danks is the attorney for both Mr. Geary and Mr. Weaver alike?IS IT TRUE that Covance Clinical Development Services has announced plans to close its Evansville laboratory?…the closing is slated to begin with layoffs on approximately July 24th?…There will be more than 100 local people who will be losing their jobs as a result of this shut down?…that is just the beginning because there were many more than 100 people who supplemented their income by participating in the paid studies conducted by Covance?…several people derived their entire income by volunteering for the paid human trials at Covance with some individuals claiming to earn over $40,000 per year?…it is unknown to the CCO whether or not the stipends paid for volunteering were taxable or not?…at any rate it was possible to be a human test specimen and earn more by doing so than the average Evansville employee earns from working a job?…Covance did not state a reason for the closure and made it clear that the affected employees do not have any bumping rights and there is no collective bargaining agreement in place?…the Covance website says the Evansville lab is a clinical research facility and conducts medical research studies on healthy people and those with chronic conditions, including cholesterol, diabetes, and obesity?…one would think that such a place would prosper in Evansville as there are a multitude of people in town who would qualify under these requirements?IS IT TRUE the multi-use area known as The Promenade has recently brought a couple of businesses into its park?…after many news releases about medical facilities, upscale residential properties, and even a Nordstrom’s, the couple of businesses to actually locate there is a Burger King and Zaxby’s? … the Promenade is located on prime real estate development property located on the progressive Eastside of Evansville?IS IT TRUE one upscale store that will not be coming to The Promenade or anywhere else in Evansville will be the latest casualty of the retail meltdown?…that is the upscale “Bebe’ which just announced that all of their stores will be closed?…the dead retail list just keeps expanding and the last place that anyone should be putting their 401k today is into a mall development?IS IT TRUE another local leader of things which seek success at the Ford Center has tendered his resignation and is heading out of town.?…Evansville Sports Corporation Executive Director Jason Sands has left his job in Evansville and headed deep in the heart of Fort Worth, Texas for a similar position?…Bob Warren and the staff at the Evansville Convention and Visitors Bureau will manage the position until a new director is hired?…according to Warren they are about to get busy to hire a replacement?…in all fairness Mr. Sands must have been pretty darn good to get the NCAA Division 2 Basketball Elite Eight to sign a four year deal with a location that can’t get 1,000 people to a conference tournament with a home town team in the tourney?FOOTNOTE: Todays “Readers Poll” question is: Are you pleased that City Councilman Justin Elpers requested that the Manager of the Ford Center update Council on the current status of the Thunderbolt hockey team?FacebookTwitterCopy LinkEmail

Michael Essien will have 20,000 reasons for ending his exile from the Ghana side as he watches his country face England on Tuesday night.The World Cup quarter-finalists, who tugged at the neutrals’ heart strings in South Africa last summer, have risen to 16th in the Fifa rankings-and much of the recent amazing journey has been completed without the Chelsea midfielder.Essien has not represented his country since being injured in the African Cup of Nations in Angola almost 14 months ago.Despite playing for Chelsea he has turned his back on the international stage.But 20,000 fervent Ghanaians at a sell-out Wembley for the friendly will remind Essien of what he is missing and assist Ghana FA president Kwesi Nyantakyi in his task of restoring the 28-year-old African icon to the side.Essien has taken time out on his international career -a decision criticised in Ghana -to help save his body from more wear and tear. He explained: “I had two bad knee injuries playing for Ghana and they were part of the reason for taking a mini break. I had to give my body a chance to recover and so far, so good.“I will be there at Wembley to support the team. I am a Black Stars supporter like any other player or Ghanaian. I also expect Ghana to win.”Source: Ghanasoccernet.com
