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 yesterday City Councilman and Finance Chairmen Jonathan Weaver announced that members of the local Teamsters told him and other Council members they are in negotiations with the Winnecke Administration to receive 2% raise in this calendar year?

IS IT TRUE during the 2018 budget hearings City Council approved a 1% pay raise for all the public employees except members of the Fire and Police Departments who received a 2% increase?

IS IT TRUE Councilmen and Finance Chairman Jonathan Weaver is upset because the Teamsters and the Mayor have been quietly negotiating a 2% salary increase for this budget year without his knowledge? …Mr. Weaver claim he hasn’t seen a copy of the proposed budget contract amendment that will allow the Mayor to give all the local Teamsters employed by the City a 2% pay increase this year?

IS IT TRUE we find it  extremely interesting that the Finance Chairmen and City Councilman is publicly asking “where’s the transparency?” …ever since Mr. Weaver has been severing on City Council been asking him and his sidekick Missy Mosby “where’s the transparency?”  …we consider this to be a developing story?

IS IT TRUE all we can say to Mr. Weaver is that “taxpayers are getting sick and tired of the political promises and games of elected and appointed officials”?

IS IT TRUE a CCO reader sent this to us which we found interesting? …I  talked to a to a homeless man recently and asked him how he ended up this way? He said, “Up until last week, I still had it all.  I had plenty to eat, my clothes were washed and pressed, I had a roof over my head, I had HDTV and Internet, and I went to the gym, the pool, and the library?” …he also added that “I was working on my MBA online.  I had no bills and no debt. I even had full medical coverage?” …I felt sorry for him, so I asked, “What happened?  Drugs?  Alcohol?  Divorce?”  …he said “Oh no, nothing like that,” he said.  “No, no… I was just paroled?”

IS IT TRUE some feel that Its time to challenge the out of control nepotism and political patronage practices at the Civic Center?

IS IT TRUE we urge you to attend the “Guns and Hoses XI” event this coming April 7, 2018, at the Ford Center because it’s for a worthy causes?

Todays “Readers Poll” question is: Do you feel that the Evansville City Council should give $500,000 of Federal and State tax dollars to EHO Housing without knowing the findings of the Forensic audit?

  1. IS IT TRUE we wonder where the Mayor will find the extra money in this year’s budget to increase the Teamsters salaries. The same place he got the money for the police and fire. Although teamster water and sewer people are paid from utility revenue not taxes.

  2. Where is the Indiana legislature in protecting school students knowing the left leaning public school administrations (hello EVSC) will hold rallys, put up more “E is for everyone stickers”, but do nothing to train and arm volunteer teachers:

    ” (CNN)As the debate over arming teachers in schools reverberates across the country, Kansas is doubling down on the idea.
    A new bill would not only authorize the arming of Kansas school staff, it would hold schools responsible if a shooting were to occur and the teachers and staff present were not allowed to be armed. “…

    • Joe”NRANut”Biden

      Answer ONE question: Are YOU willing to pay more in taxes for this idea?

      OK, genius, where do YOU think the money should come from? This asinine idea of arming folks in school is ignorant, but if you are gonna keep promoting this violence, YOU tell us where the money will come from

      • The best way to destroy the test scores of Indiana schools, have the test scores of Indiana students plummet into a canyon, is to listen to gun nuts like JoeBiden’s ideas of arming teachers in schools.
        It’s an insane idea.
        Kids will take their Teacher’s guns and shoot up the School.

        It would kill the primary reason for schools: excellent education.

        JoeB is a gun nut. Next page please.

        • I think the real answer is school vouchers. There’s a need to separate those who can and will excel from the others, like the Signature School and Joshua’s Academy. The tax dollars set aside for each student should be portable so that students, teachers and parents can have an educational experience worthy of their involvement and commitment. Public education is like public housing and public assistance and should only be used in dire circumstances. Vouchers can and will work and we’ll have an educated citizenry, most likely with an understanding of democracy.

          • Newspeak. Tell us about cheese curds now.
            Or maybe chicken a la king recipes. LOL.

      • Well, as soon as you begin blaming the NRA for the problem I know the true nut. One place to find the funding for training is from the NRA. That is part of what they do. Second, why would tax payers not pay more for something that works and has already saved lives? It is better to train and arm willing teachers than to have them stand against an active shooter with nothing but their flesh.
        Gun free zones have failed. Let’s do what works.

  3. Curious, anyone have an idea what Villanova pays their coach, Jay Wright? Since Loyola Chicago us in the conference with UE, any idea what they pay their coach?

    • Villanova: $2.6 million

      Loyola: $420,000 (in 2016)

      Expect a giant raise for Moser at Loyola or elsewhere. He will join the million dollar club within 30 days.

      Wright at Nova will likely get a new contract at over $3 million

      • From 1 year ago and Georgia recently hired the Creanster :
        This week, IU Vice President and Director of Intercollegiate Athletics Fred Glass announced Crean’s dismissal from the university after nine seasons.

        Although Crean is being let go, he’ll remain the highest paid employee in the state for now. His contract states he will be paid a buyout of $4 million over the next three years until the contract is up. If Crean accepts a comparable job, IU will offset his salary.

      • Muffet McGraw, Notre Dame womens bb coach for 31 years; $900,000+ salary + bonus.
        NCAA women’s final game was everything the men’s wasn’t.

  4. I feel a great disturbance in the Force; as if a local politician’s voice suddenly cried out against the Teamsters and will be suddenly silenced.

  5. Weaver is an ego maniac. The only reason he is interested in the way that the 2% was negotiated is so he can take credit for something he had nothing to do with. You see, his ego is still pushing him toward running for mayor of Evansville just to feed itself. Weaver is nothing but a weatherman and house peddler. No skills to speak of other than an exaggerated sense of self importance.

  6. The White House Deputy Attorney General Rod J. Rosenstein is a patriotic American.
    God Bless the man. He is protecting our Country.

    Rosenstein again stated his approval and authorization for Special Counselor’s Mueller team to investigate possible links between the Trump campaign and Russia and further authorized that “naturally cover ties” between the Trump campaign’s chairman and “Russian associated political operatives, Russian-backed politicians and Russian oligarchs.”

    God Bless the Justice Department, and God Bless Rosenstein for seeking justice and protecting the United States of America.

      • Who is gruber?
        Patriots made this country great! Patriots like Ronald Reagan. Like our GOP leader Mitch McConnell and Republican House Speaker Paul Ryan. Loyal Republicans who are all behind Rod Rosenstein. We love our Country. God Bless our Deputy Attorney General, Rod Rosenstein.
