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 it looks like Democrat Willian Tanoos, a Terre Haute disability attorney, is going to be the only Democratic challenger to either Republicans Dr. Richard Moss, Rachel Covington or current 8th District United States Congressman Dr. Larry Bucshon in the General election? …Democrat William Tanoos must put in some additional time and effort in campaigning in Vanderburgh County in order to improve his chances of being elected as the next 8th District United States Congressman? …so goes Vanderburgh County so goes the chances of Mr. Tanoos being elected as the next 8th District United States Congressman?
IS IT TRUE that members of the local media have been focused on the political campaign war chest of people running for public office during this election cycle? …we like to point out that campaign fundraising committee for County Commissioner Ben Shoulders has raised around $150,000? …this figure tells us that people think very highly of Mr. Shoulders?
IS IT TRUE so far there are several State and County offices that only have one person seeking to be elected to those positions? …we can guarantee that both Vanderburgh County Party Chairman will see that every important political office in Vanderburgh County will be competitive?
IS IT TRUE we have been told that State Representative Wendy McNamara Democratic general election opponent is going to make the “Payday Loan Legislation” that she co-authored a major campaign issue? …we are told that Ms. McNamara better gets ready for one heck of a re-election campaign battle?
IS IT TRUE are told that City Council President Jim Brinkmeyer (D) is not happy that 5th Ward City Councilman Justin Elpers submitted a resolution without his knowledge to do away with the unreasonable “3-minute Governmental Censorship” rule imposed two (2) years ago by former Evansville City Council President Missy Mosby (D)? …Mr. Brinkmeyer can rest assured if he doesn’t support Councilman Elpers resolution to do away with this unreasonable “3-minute Governmental Censorship” rule it could cause him some re-election challenges?
IS IT TRUE that a triple homicide happened over the weekend in Evansville which will keep the homicide rate rising through the first two months of 2018 even if the rest of February is a time of peace and tranquility?…this time the killing spree started on Lynwood when a man sot and killed his wife and followed that killing up with a Facebook post announcing the homicide?…then he got into a Black Range Rover with Florida plates and chased down a blue Dodge Challenger on northbound Highway 41 and fired a series of shots into the driver side window, killing the driver?…then the Range Rover proceeded out to the 4-H Center in Darmstadt where the alleged killer was found dead in his Range Rover? …we wonder if “Spot Shooter” could have stopped this triple homicide from happening?
IS IT TRUE also on the Northside last week was a heinous arrest of a public school teacher for allegedly molesting a child in his care?…the CCO is glad that the alleged child molester is in custody and hopes that justice is done?…the particularly sickening nature of crimes in the Tri-State has started 2018 off the rails of the terrible year of 2017?
IS IT TRUE we wonder if the owners of the McCurdy have paid their $750,000 water bill? …if not, why hasn’t the city turned off the water at the McCurdy? …if anyone else didn’t pay their water bill the city would disconnect their water meter?
IS IT TRUE that a couple of years ago the president of TransUnion Healthcare, said burgeoning out-of-pocket costs put consumers with precarious finances at growing risk of bankruptcy if they experience medical problems? …that A 2013 report from the price transparency firm Nerdwallet Health estimated that 1.7 million Americans live in households that will declare bankruptcy due to their inability to pay their medical bills? …we are told since that time this figure may have tripled?
