IS IT TRUE March 12, 2014

IS IT TRUE Mayor Winnecke took advantage of the recent nice weather to give his annual State of the City address to a packed house at the downtown Rotary Club?…of course the Mayor put a positive spin on Evansville as politicians tend to do when facing an audience and some of that was merited?…the efforts to eliminate litter seem to be making a dent in what had become a preventable squalor and the continuing effort to define a long term solution to the combined sewer issue deserve accolades?…we are however still waiting for the plan and the price tag for an EPA approved plan to move forward to repair the sewers?…we do know that roughly a year ago the number was estimated to be between $545 Million and $815 Million and that construction inflation has driven both numbers up?…the Mayor should be aware that the longer we wait the more this will cost and accelerate rather than delay real action?…that in spite of the $2 Million “surprise” hole in the budget due to reduced tax collection that is causing cuts in the City’s operating budget, Mayor Winnecke still is adamant about pushing forward with Robert’s Park that is now estimated to cost $8 Million?…the Rotary Club even announced a $100,000 gift to the effort that amounts to a whopping 1.25% of the total construction budget?…moving forward on such a project 24 hours after announcing a $2 Million negative surprise had that TWILIGHT ZONE feel to it as though we may just be on a train with no engineer?…Councilwoman Missy Mosby tweeted after the speech that “Evansville is United, Awesome State of the City Speech Mayor”?…that does sound like a dream but we beg to differ on both fronts?…it was an okay speech delivered by a very good speaker about a Midwestern town with real issues that have haunted it for decades?…there is nothing “awesome” about the contents of the speech?

IS IT TRUE every day that the approval of the $4.8 Million loan for Earthcare Energy LLC is not rescinded is another day that $4.8 Million of your tax dollars are at risk of being handed out by the Winnecke Administration to Earthcare Energy?…the next time the Evansville City Council is scheduled to meet is March 31, 2014 at which time the City County Observer has been assured that they will initiate action to rescind this approval?…we hope there is more urgency to do so that was exhibited this Monday night when not a peep about Earthcare was heard?…that failing to rescind is as we stated yesterday a de-facto extension of the loan approval and mimics the actions of the Loan Administration Board that formally extended the term of the $200,000 loan by 2 years without any basis to do so?

IS IT TRUE the Coachella Valley Innovation Hub that is run by CCO Editor and former GAGE President Joe Wallace was the subject of a 20 year economic impact study by Dr. John Husing who is the pre-eminent economist in California’s Inland Empire?…the economic impact estimate for this Innovation Hub and it’s Accelerator Campus was calculated by Dr. Husing to be $12.5 Billion over its first 20 years based on the successes since it opened in late 2011?…Dr. Husing and his firm along with multiple case studies can be seen at www.johnhusing.com?

IS IT TRUE President Barack Obama is struggling to overcome widespread pessimism about the economy and deep frustration with Washington, notching the lowest job-approval ratings of his presidency in a new Wall Street Journal/NBC News poll?…the results indicate that President Obama’s job approval ticked down to 41% in March from 43% in January suggesting that Obama could weigh on fellow Democrats in midterm elections this fall, particularly in the conservative states that will play a large role in deciding whether his party retains its Senate majority.

    The only way Evansville is United is if we just bought out an airline.

      Evansville/Vanderburgh “the old ship at sea” as it seems to appear, has very little sustainable balance* left. The tax shortfalls were probably forecasted on the horizon when you continued to lose your employment bases out of the county.
      Your old “ships owners decided to add weight at the bow,with staterooms and passenger and crew entertainment loading to increase passage revenues.
      That load effectively lowered the bow and increased its waterline contact to move forward.
      Increased energy was needed to make “any” passage determined.
      Now that the steering is also wheel housed at the bow,the rudder becomes less and less effective in steering and maintaining any course as set buy directional compasses available on board.
      While increasing the cargo load to pay for the fuel bunker costing to move that ship,the waterline again decreases,so does the streamline profile.
      When this begins to affect destination ranges, The slower passage is being addressed by the addition of outside deck varanda rooms,that further unbalanced the boat,while, adding to the old bilge system and stability.
      Seaward rocking becomes more apparent.

      The crew and the steerage passengers are beginning to demand some deck time as well,due to knee deep internal bilgewater problems developing along the keel.
      The ship is further conditionally unseaworthy and newer shipping standards demand the shipping line builds an upgraded bilgewater management system as to remain afloat during stormy weather and rough seas.
      The shipping line still wanting to supply the bow heavy features then decides. To add additional costing to the steerage cabins,while converting more ships revenues purse taken to the bow. The pursers,and the operational crew numbers are reduced,as well.

      As forecasted the weather continues to increase is voracities and batters the old hull as it flops,up and into the increased wave incursions. Now life boat drills do come into play as a real time voyage experience.
      You guessed it, by the time the ships internal crew,and the steerage passengers get out of the bilge and onto the deck,the Captain,the First Mate,and the veranda and bow provisionals are overboard,in the lifecraft,with the pursers load,and any of the cargo salvaged,as well.

      I’m thinking the keeper of the albatross,Yeoman Parke,was left on board,to steer the “nag” and go down with the stricken ship.

          elkaybee, how was it a softball? It brought up several areas for judgement and every person had the ability to pick from A to F on each item. I’m sure that there are people that went across the board and picked the same grade no matter what. You for example, probably picked straight F’s without being objective and there are people that probably picked all A’s without being objective. My personal opinion of the Mayor is high, but I tried to be objective and give him the grade that I felt he deserved for each category, which I assure you was not all A’s.

    Based on the conversations that I have with people everyday, I would have to agree with Missy’s assessment of an united city. You can’t have everybody on board, but for the most part people are united in moving the city towards progress together. The comments on these message boards are just basic politics. We always have a tendency to be anti-incumbent and think that the sitting politicians are horrible. If you look at the Mayor’s recent survey and the report card from C&P, it shows an united city that supports the current Mayor.

    Unfortunately, I had a meeting that ran over and I was not able to attend the State of the City speech, so I can not say whether it was awesome or not. Normally, I reserve that word for acts of God.

      Everyone wants to be in the majority or the winning team until you look around to see who else is on that team and the tactics they use to win, polls help bolster numbers because of this, but it’s a wise man who can look beyond the polls to see the wizard behind the curtain pulling the levers and realize it’s just a illusion.

            No, Phyllip. Try to follow me here. The “polls” done by CCO and the Courier are useless, except for the amusement factor. That is because there is no way to get a representative sample.
            Legitimate polls can be very useful, and they are expensive because, among other things, representative samples are getting more and more difficult to get because of the move away from landlines. Unfortunately, there is a trend also for those who commission a poll to be looking for a certain outcome and there are pollsters who will skew their polls accordingly, as well. I strongly suspect that was the case with the pollsters who had GOPers
            convinced that Romney was going to win the last presidential election.

    One question is always paramount when discussing government and taxes: Who gets and who pays?

    http://www.in.gov/dor/reference/files/1213.pdf

    This is the monthly revenue report for the State of Indiana for the month ending 12-31-2013. It gives the data for the month and also gives the totals for the year of 2013 in the calendar year to date section, page 3 of 8.

    You will observe that the 2013 total collections for INDIVIDUAL INCOME TAX was $6.8 billion. Up 5.2% from the prior year.

    The total CORPORATE TAX collections for 2013 was $996. million. Down 5.1% from the prior year.

    The total SALES TAX collections for 2013 was $6.9 billion. Up 2.6% from the prior year.

    The Grand Total for ALL COLLECTIONS was $17.1 billion. Up 2.2% from the prior year.

Has the State Board decided to bring this administration in and lock away the key or is the 2012 audit finally over? It’s March so according to my calculations, they could have been there to start the 2013 audit. The five State Board people looked very miserable today.

      That is indeed what our Mole Nation tells us. Today is whisper day. The length of time from today until a formal release of the audit will be an indicator of just how much guidance is being interjected by the Fellowship of the MIPS assembled today. We are hoping for SNEGAL come around and update us on the status of his precious (balanced books).

        It will all be fine. The Mayor told the Rotary Club that Evansville is “stable.” I’m thinking he meant “critical, but stable”.

      Is this a WHITEWASH ? SBOA gives the City a pass ? Or, did the State Five forget about “Debits on the Left; Credits on the right; stand up, sit down, fight-fight-fight !” ?

        Speaking for The Five, our thought process was these guys inherited a crap load of problems, a new computer system and a 2011 Disclaimer of Opinion from that sawed-off bastard from before.

        They worked hard, sweated it out. Although the books are still a pile of crap, we’ll give them a Clean Bill O’ Health this year so we don’t mess up the Bond Rating. Plus Jenny is taking us out for drinks next Monday !

        But ‘oh, laddies, we will surely hold their feet to the fire for 2013 (hey, that audit starts right now, oh– no rest for the weary).

          They may point their finger at the change over to the new system for a host of ills, but when it comes to 6 years of no audits and no independent reviews of the city’s annual contracts with SMG for the management of the city’s publicly owned entertainment facilities, they do not have a leg to stand on.

          I have zero faith that H&S can uncover what actually took place during that 6 year period.

          Some people should have lost their job, and some people should have gone to jail.

            Uncle Fester told me that the only State Board person that was coherent was Cowabunga. They wouldn’t let the only CPA in the group speak much.

    Marty,

    Breach of contact ? I don’t think it’s against the law if Missy didn’t want to contact the ECC. How could they sue her for that ? I call Missy up all the time, she never calls me back. I dont’ sue her !

    When is her opponent announcing his candidacy? We keep hearing about him on here but he’s not come out of the shadows yet. Looking forward to it.

    As you know, Ed, there were many folks in the real estate business who were hit hard between 2008 and 2010, and really did not recover fully until recently, if ever. People struggled financially.

    It’s nice to know many of those folks are recovering, and that others have forgotten and forgiven the past, and moved on with social and financial contacts. Why can’t you, Ed?

    People on here should stop all this unnecessary harassment of Missy Mosby, and take a bit of time to examine her real political motivations with regard to her excellent representation of her district specifically, and her community in general.

    I don’t always agree with Missy, and have said so publicly and to her privately. Mostly my disagreements have had to do with sewer rates, but that’s understandable considering I live in the county, and Missy lives in and represents the 2nd Ward, an area that has suffered more than any other from storm and sanitary sewer malfunction.

    Missy has gone to bat for her constituents 100%. Why can’t you, your writers, and your moles dig up something positive to publish about Missy Mosby for a change. I’m not suggesting you become her media spokespersons, but the least you could do is be fair rather than constantly raking ancient muck and beating dead horses.
