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 that Deaconess Hospital and Henderson Community Methodist Hospital have formed a group called an “ACO?” …its legend that “ACO” is where referrals are preferably kept within the group and only certain doctors at Deaconess and Methodist are invited to be a part of that group?
IS IT TRUE that it been alleged that the paychecks of the “Hospitalists” have been paid by Union County Methodist for at least a year? …we wonder why this is happening because the “Hospitalists” that are being paid are not working at Union County Methodist Hospital?
IS IT TRUE if Deaconess Healthcare System-Evansville takes over full control of the Henderson Community Methodist Hospital this would mean that Union County Hospital will automatically become a part of Deaconess Healthcare-Evansville?
IS IT TRUE it been alleged that officials from Madisonville Baptist Hospital and Owensboro contacted officials at Henderson Community Methodist Hospital concerning a possible buy out or merger but the official at Methodist never got back to them with a response?
IS IT TRUE that the University of Evansville Purple Aces basketball program has really been ringing the cash register since former Kentucky Wildcat and NBA star Walter McCarty was hired to take over as coach of the team?…since McCarty was hired the UE coffers have received a reported $1.5 Million in donations and other financial commitments that they did not have a snowball’s chance in the devil’s house to get with the previous regime in charge?…this is good news as the Aces have been overdue for a significant post season tournament appearance for nearly 2 decades now?…in other good news Coach McCarty has recruited UE’s first ever top 100 incoming freshman?…that is really not true because they weren’t ranking high school kids when the Aces had guys like Jerry Sloan and Larry Humes delivering NCAA Division 2 championships regularly?…we wonder if our old pal Curt John would have been a ranked Dapper Dan player had ranking been a thing in his day?…we are betting Curt would be a Top 200 at least?
IS IT TRUE on the other side of town the women of the diamond stroked their way to the NCAA Division 2 Softball Championship?…we congratulate them? …we also congratulate the men’s baseball teams from USI for having a dynamic year?.
IS IT TRUE that to no one’s surprise the fat lady has sung on the new Rosanne show?…the foul-mouthed dimwit matriarch who had a house and a street sign in Evansville featured on their sign on show just got Evansville out of the limelight with a racist tweet that went viral?…this is the same Rosanne Barr that grabbed her crotch and butchered the national anthem at a baseball game in San Diego the last time she was famous?… Evansville is better off without any association with Rosanne?…what is mind-boggling is that while Rosanne deserved what she got some equally offensive people on The View manage to keep their job?
IS IT TRUE that the forecast for Evansville is for at least 1.5 inches of rain and we all know that means raw sewage will be running in the streets of the south and southeast sides of town?…this is likely going to be the case for the foreseeable future since the strategy of the Winnecke Administration is to move the mandated repairs along as slow as possible without triggering the big fines that are associated with doing nothing like the Weinzapfel Administration did?…choosing fun and games over substance is the driving force behind the sewage in the streets of Evansville?…our readers on the south side better get out their galoshes for the big rain storm that is sure to mess things up again?
