IS IT TRUE? October 27, 2011

IS IT TRUE that Evansville’s favorite Major League Baseball team the St. Louis Cardinals have a chance to force a series deciding 7th game if they can tune their bats up tonight and take this home game from the clutches of the warm weather loving Texas Rangers?…that we are all hoping that the Rangers have the balls to throw strikes to Albert Pujols instead of punking out and walking the big fellow every time he steps up to the plate?

IS IT TRUE that next Tuesday November 1, 2011 is not only the one week countdown to the elections it is the next regularly scheduled meeting of the Evansville Redevelopment Commission?…that we are eagerly anticipating the agenda so that we can learn if there are line items scheduled with respect to the McCurdy Hotel Project and a progress report on the vetting being done by Hunden Strategic Partners on the two bidders to build a downtown Convention Hotel?…that City Centre Properties assured everyone at the last ERC meeting that they spoke at that by October 31, 2011 (next Monday) that they will have their financing closed and will be ready to start construction in November?…that the whole town is watching?…that the CCO suspects that the answer to that financing dilemma is already known?…that in being consistent with past announcements that we expect a smiling picture of a triumphant Mayor Weinzapfel and his friend Mr. Scott upon any closing of the financing deal?

IS IT TRUE that it has now been 1,642 days since the announcement was made on May 14, 2007 that the McCurdy Hotel was to be refurbished into luxury apartments?…that it has now been 1,495 days since the Evansville Redevelopment Commission at the request of Mayor Weinzapfel approved the spending of $603,000 to purchase the parking lot?…that City Centre Properties and Scott Kosene the developers of the McCurdy project are both listed as contributors to the Weinzapfel for Mayor committee for 2010?

IS IT TRUE that in a short 12 days we will all know whether it will be Lloyd Winnecke or Rick Davis who will become the Mayor that will assume responsibility for executing the decisions that are playing out right now?…that that there are 65 days remaining in the Weinzapfel Administration?

IS IT TRUE that there are now 367 days remaining in the two years that the EPA had given the City of Evansville to present an acceptable solution to the Combined Sewer Overflow problem?…..that this plan is an expensive and complex endeavor that needs immediate attention to avoid the embarrassment and expense of another round of fines?

IS IT TRUE that the Smokefree Communities are having a comedy show to raise money for cancer featuring comedian Rene Hicks?…that Ms. Hicks does comedy shows all over the country and since Evansville no longer has a comedy club that this is a great opportunity to enjoy a different form of entertainment and help out a great cause?…that tickets are $15 in advance and $20 at the door and that this will be happening on Saturday night October 5th at 9 PM at the Events Center?… that you can contact Martha at (812-303-7378) or Casey at (812-686-9373) to get your tickets?


    • GoCardinals = you say the same thing everyday & every article.

      Is there anything positive about Davis you can talk about or are you just that hung up on two men you can never be? I think I heard Davis mention once or ten times that he was president of his neighborhood association. Is that Mt. Auburn? They don’t meet in the summer and when they do it’s about 5 old ladies. I’m glad he can handle that kind of pressure. He’s ready for prime time.

      Davis = GoCardinals = two idiots.

  1. BROWNFIELD-GATE?!?!?!?!?!?!?

    Come on, CCO. Inquiring and voting minds want to know.

  2. “. . . that we are all hoping that the Rangers have the balls to throw strikes to Albert Pujols instead of punking out and walking the big fellow every time he steps up to the plate?”

    C’mon, CCO, be better than that. It’s strategy and a business decision. Why don’t you post your full names, addresses, phone numbers, etc., for all the world to see who you are? You don’t because it wouldn’t make good business sense. Neither does pitching to Albert in certain situations.

    Incidentally, they did pitch to him and it didn’t matter much.
