We hope that today’s “READERS FORUM” 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.
HERE’S WHAT’S ON OUR MIND TODAY
We hope that the powers that be will agree on a new jail design that will be meet the future needs of the Vanderburgh County Sheriff Office for the next 25 years. We don’t want to see our elected officials make the same mistake when they built the jail years ago by miscalculating how many inmates the jail should accommodate.
That the downtown Evansville 6,600 square foot limestone building known as the Soldiers and Sailors Memorial Coliseum was dedicated to the memory of those who served in the Civil War and the Spanish American War? …the Soldiers and Sailors Memorial Coliseum has hosted a wide range of events since its dedication in 1917? …that Soldiers and Sailors Memorial Coliseum is one of the few historical “Crown Jewels” left standing in our community? …that it seems like the only public event that the Soldiers and Sailors Memorial Coliseum that is attracting on a regular basis are bingo? …we were very surprised to find out that longtime Director of the Veterans Coliseum Commander Mark Acker retired without fanfare and moved back to his roots in another State? …we have been told that Commander Acker’s daughter has replaced him? …we are told that numerous people feel that members of the Vanderburgh County Commission should invite the new Coliseum Director to explain to them her future plans of this historic building?
