We 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 during last City Council meeting the Finance Chairmen and At-large City Council menember Jonaphan Weaver asked the City Controller how much money he had in the General Fund? …City Controller, Russ Lloyd Jr. said; the fund is currently over $11 million dollar in the red? …we wonder if all the unpaid city employees medical bills were included in this figure? …that Controller Lloyd, Jr also said; that the City will be receiving the property installment in May?
IS IT TRUE that 8th District Congressional Republican primary candidate Dr. Richard Moss has publically stated that he wants to end birthright citizenship, block amnesty programs, defund sanctuary cities, deport all illegal immigrants, terminate the diversity VISA lottery, encourage merit-based immigration, build a wall and secure our border?  …we would like to know what Congressman Larry Bucshon’s positions are on these important national issues before the upcoming Republican primary?
IS IT TRUE if you are upset with the callous disregard that 8th District Congressmen Larry Bucshon has shown towards the voters of the his District by not debating his opponent you can send him a strong message on election day?  …we respectfully suggest you can send the Congressman a strong message on election day by not voting for him; voting for his opponent or don’t cast a vote in the Republican primary in the 8th Congressional District race?
IS IT TRUE we remember in years past if a candidate running for political office turned down an Evansville Courier and Press invitation to publicaly debate their opponent they would had been taken to task?  …in the good ole days when a political candidate declined to participate in the Courier and Press sponsored debate the editiorial staff would write an in your face article that chastises the canididate for his callous disregard towards the voters for not debating his opponent?
IS IT TRUE last week loyal supporters of the Thunderbolt Hockey team received taxpayers subsidized “Free Tickets” to see the playoff game with the Macon Mayhem? …that free ticket night draw a crowd of 365 above the average of 2309?  …if the Evansville Thunderbolts would had charged $10 a ticket they would have made $26,740 instead of collecting zero dollars from admissions? …we wonder what the Ford Center management charged the Thunderbolts owners to rent the Ford Center for this event?
IS IT TRUE the Democratic primary race for the Pigeon Township Trustee has turned into an extremely competitive political contest? …that the current Pigeon Township Trustee Mary Hart is well know and respected and by all accounts has done a credible job in that position for well over 22 years? …Ms. Hart challengers resume shows that she has done some notable thing during her professional career? …we are told that Ms. Mariama Wilson is personable and hardworking?  … this is the only contested Democratic primary race on the ballot? …we wish both candidates the best in this race?
IS IT TRUE this evening that U.S. Senate Republican primary candidate Mike Braum and Vanderburgh County Commission Republican primary candidate Steve Hammer will be holding a joint “MEET AND GREET” reception at the Roca Bar-North between 4-7 pm?  …that the invititation sent out the public by Mr. Hammer’s campaign staff stated “that both candidates are like minded; they are both conservatives Southern Indiana businessmen and both want government to make it easier for businesses to start up, expand and relocate to our local commiunities”?  …this mailer also stated that “both canidates are political outsiders?”  …if any other political primary candidates has a similar “MEET AND GREET” event please send information to the City-County Observer we shall also post it at no charge?

IS IT TRUE last week it was reported that the Bosse High School principal has been appointed the “Director of Strategic Engagement” for the EVSC? …it was also reported that the principal of Harrison High School has been appointed the “Director of Research for School Improvement” for EVSC? …its been alleged that both individuals will be making over well over $100,000 in these positions? …we are told that several EVSC classroom teachers are leaving the system because they are underpaid? …too bad that some of the high salaries being paid to top administrators housed in the EVSC Admin building couldn’t be passed down to our hardworking and underpaid classroom teachers?

  1. we wonder what the Ford Center management charged the Thunderbolts owners to rent the Ford Center for this event?

    Answer: $ 0. Ford Center management (VenuWorks) = Thunderbolts owners (VenuWorks)

  2. WHY DEBATE Moss?
    Why would anyone in their right mind do that? Only Moss wants that!

    When your opponent claims to be qualified – and isn’t,
    claims to be from here – and isn’t.
    Then why?
    Republican Dick Cheney had to be dragged and kicking to debate the unqualified and immoral Democrat John Edwards, and NO REPUBLICAN held that against him! Cheney was smart, 100% correct.

    Moss is unqualified.
    Moss is FAR-REMOVED from EVER understanding the first thing about honest, hard working Indiana workers, especially farmers.
    Moss is like Obama, spent most of his life somewhere else.

    And Moss is not even from here…..he’s an import from New York City for God’s sake!

    • Perfectly stated.
      If you were born and raised in Indiana, and you grew up to become a Congressman,
      and some guy from New York City showed up demanding to debate you, would you do it?

      Moss is another Hillary Clinton. Born and raised in Illinois (Chicago), lived and worked in Arkansas and BINGO! Runs for Congress in NY saying, “I’m just like you.”

      Sorry Moss. Richard Moss is born and raised in New York City, lived and worked in foreign countries, and now runs for Congress in INDIANA? saying, “I’m just like you.” Seriously?

      Richard Moss is a joke. Debate? Ha! Tell me another joke.

      • Totally agree. Buschon would gain nothing from the debate. A group from the League of Women Voters, a political arm of the democrat party would be waiting to ambush Buschon. CCO claims this is a disservice to Indiana voters, I don’t think so. Buschon is a proud and proven conservative. He has my vote. Don’t go from the known to the unknown if the known is doing a good job.

    • A better question is do we really need EVSC? What we really need is a 100% voucher system so parents can get the kind of education they want for their child.

  3. Here’s an unusual news article about a global warming alarmist:
    An attorney who worked on high-profile LGBT cases, including a challenge the Boy Scouts ban on homosexual members, set himself on fire on Saturday at a public park in New York City to protest fossil fuels and climate change, according to a suicide note.

    The charred remains of David Buckel were found by a jogger in Brooklyn’s Prospect Park….

    “He was protesting over climate change, his note read, and the dramatic method was intended as a metaphor for how fossil fuels are destroying the planet,” the Mail reported.

    “My early death by fossil fuel reflects what we are doing to ourselves,” the New York Daily News reported his suicide note said….

    “Pollution ravages our planet, oozing inhabitability via air, soil, water, and weather,” Buckel wrote in the email sent to the Times. “Most humans on the planet now breathe air made unhealthy by fossil fuels, and many die early deaths as a result — my early death by fossil fuel reflects what we are doing to ourselves.”

    • I guess he showed us. Too bad Al Gore can’t have the same courage of his convictions and mirror David Buckel’s actions.

      • Hey Dann. Why don’t you and your NYC buddies, Richard Moss and Hillary Clinton go to another Teamster Union Hall meeting and sell us on more of your pro-union steel and trade tariffs?

      • Perfect example of real conservatives and real socialist progressives. Governor Moonbeam at it again:

        “SAN DIEGO (AP) — California has rejected terms of the federal government’s initial plans for sending National Guard troops to the border because the work is considered too closely tied to immigration, two U.S. officials told The Associated Press.

        Gov. Jerry Brown elicited rare and effusive praise from President Donald Trump last week for pledging 400 troops to the Guard’s third large-scale border mission since 2006. But the Democratic governor conditioned his commitment on troops having nothing to do with immigration enforcement, even in a supporting role….

        Republican governors from the three other border states — Arizona, New Mexico and Texas — have openly embraced the Trump administration’s plans and specific tasks for guard members sent to the border with Mexico. Texas National Guard members are already doing aerial and ground surveillance. Officials with Arizona’s National Guard said last week that its troops will provide air and ground support

  4. “Scientists have surmised there is a stream of viruses circling the planet, above the planet’s weather systems but below the level of airline travel. Very little is known about this realm, and that’s why the number of deposited viruses stunned the team in Spain. Each day, they calculated, some 800 million viruses cascade onto every square meter of the planet….

    Researchers recently identified an ancient virus that inserted its DNA into the genomes of four-limbed animals that were human ancestors. That snippet of genetic code, called ARC, is part of the nervous system of modern humans and plays a role in human consciousness — nerve communication, memory formation and higher-order thinking. Between 40 percent and 80 percent of the human genome may be linked to ancient viral invasions.”

  5. The attorney for Trump, whose specialty is quietly paying prostitutes who have sex with his clients, and for his clients, now it’s known Sean Hannity is also his client.

    You Sodomites are an abomination on our great country. Followers of the Antichrist.
