“IS IT TRUE” AUGUST 10, 2018

first_imgWe 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 responsibleIS IT TRUE that downtown Evansville has two things going on right now of significance and the top one is the opening of the long awaited Indiana University Medical School?…this is a project that has been in the works for over 10 years and it is finally happening?…the only disappointment is that the local nursing programs at IVY TECH have not been allowed to come downtown leaving the medical student  count at less than 100? …because of this decision the IU Medical School will be less impactful on the downtown than the often projected student count of over 2,000 would have?IS IT TRUE that the philanthropic community has stepped up with the Koch Family Foundation chipping in $2.5 million to endow a dean and Bill Stone and his wife ponying up enough cash to claim naming rights?…this medical school decision was the right thing to do and we wish it would have happened sooner because it has already been cited as the reason for an unsubsidized Hyatt Place Hotel choosing a downtown location?…if either the medical school was a certainty in 2008 or if the Evansville City Council had a shred of patience the taxpayers of Evansville would have saved the $20+ million subsidy that went to the Doubletree developers with essentially no strings attached?IS IT TRUE we would like to give five (5) cheers to Pat and Lisa Shoulders for gifting to the people of Evansville and the Stone Family Medical Center a public fountain named “Healing Arts?”  …we also give five (5) cheers to the rest of the Shoulders family for contributing to the public fountain?IS IT TRUE that the other burning issue in downtown Evansville is whether or not the taxpayers are going be committed by the City Council to spend $2.7 Million for the purpose of building a dock and visitors center at the sight of the old riverboat location for the enshrinement of the LST?IS IT TRUE although the LST leadership (they all are  from other areas) is claiming that attendance “COULD” double with the short move, that seems like an unrealistic expectation which is probably why they used the word “COULD”?…words like “COULD”, “MAY”, and “MIGHT” are often used as hyperbole by people who have no idea about reality to manipulate an outcome that they seek?…these magic words have already pulled the wool over the eyes of City Council members Brinkmeyer, Adams, McGinn, and Mercer but the other 5 are either hesitant or undecided?…it is to be expected that at least one other member of the City Council will be infected with the “COULD” virus and vote yes without any real projection from a credible source?IS IT TRUE we wonder where the City is going to get the extra projected $3 million to dismantle the LST dock at Marina Pointe once the boat leaves that area? …we urge City Council member not to buy into the statement that a salvage company will dismantle the old LST dock located at Marina Point for salvage value only?IS IT TRUE that a recent political poll conducted by the HILL reveals that three-quarters of Americans say Nancy Pelosi should be replaced?  …half of  the people voting in this poll were Democrats?IS IT TRUE our thoughts and prayers are with our Publisher today as he is having a procedure done to find out what can be done to correct a serious heart issue?Todays“Readers Poll” question is: Do you feel that the IU Medical school will have a major economic impact on downtown Evansville?Please take time and read our articles entitled “STATEHOUSE Files, CHANNEL 44 NEWS, LAW ENFORCEMENT, READERS POLL, BIRTHDAYS, HOT JOBS” and “LOCAL SPORTS”.  You now are able to subscribe to get the CCO daily.If you would like to advertise on the CCO please contact us [email protected]: City-County Observer Comment Policy.  Be kind to people.

Students’ house destroyed in fire

first_imgA house inhabited by nine members of Notre Dame’s women’s lacrosse team was destroyed in a fire Friday afternoon, according to a WSBT report. No one was injured in the blaze on the 200 block of East Marion St., just east of Memorial Hospital. The fire was out by late afternoon, the report said. Notre Dame’s Office of Student Affairs is in the process of finding on-campus housing for the students because the house is heavily damaged. Few belongings were salvaged from the blaze. The report said the fire’s cause is still unknown, though a friend of the tenants said a hot barbeque grill was near the house when the fire started. The outside temperature was in the 90s, sunny and humid.last_img read more

Series of events celebrates Dia de los Muertos

first_imgThe Crossroads Gallery for Contemporary Art and Partners is hosting a series of events in celebration of Día de los Muertos at the Notre Dame Center for Arts and Culture (NDCAC) and the Snite Museum of Art.The exhibition “Remembering the Undocumented Across the Rio Grande” and a Día de los Muertos event took place Thursday at the NDCAC, according to art coordinator of the Crossroads Gallery, Alex Schaufele. The events included an opening reception and altar dedication, with musical performances by Mariachi ND and Ballet Folklorico Azul y Oro.“[Día de los Muertos] is a time to remember those we have lost and perhaps those we do not know,” Schaufele said. “It is a communal celebration of life.”In continuation of the celebration,  a talk with featured artist Sandra Fernandez is scheduled today at 4 p.m. at the Snite Museum, Schaufele said. A reading of “Ofrenda of Voices: Celebrating the Dead” is scheduled to take place Saturday through Notre Dame’s creative writing program.“I will talk about my trajectory as an artist,” Fernandez said. “Where I started and where I am now. My experiences. Who I am as an artist and what my interests are.”Schaufele said the gallery chose to host Fernandez as the featured guest artist based on suggestions supplied by planning committee members hoping to showcase a unique approach to Día de los Muertos.“Last year was an Africana approach dedicated to Martin Luther King, Jr. by [artist] Diógenes Ballester,” she said. “This year, we are featuring Sandra, an Ecuadorian artist who works with undocumented individuals.”Fernandez said the exhibition and ofrenda are dedicated to those who have died while crossing the border from Mexico to the U.S., particularly along the Rio Grande.“I have been working with undocumented peoples and wanted to bring attention to those who have died crossing the border,” she said. “Many of them are never identified, and I wanted to honor them.”The dedication was a way to pray for the souls of the dead, who passed away far from friends, families and their homes, Fernandez said.“I’m bringing a different awareness and information about a population to the area,” she said. “I want to celebrate and pay homage to that population.”As part of this year’s celebration, Schaufele said those involved offer both a traditional altar for everyone to participate in and a nontraditional one as a part of the exhibition, which includes an interactive component.“All four events were generated based on Día de los Muertos and those who Sandra chose to honor in her exhibition,” she said.Although this event took place at the Snite Museum in previous years, Schaufele said the NDCAC began hosting it last year.“[We are hosting the] exhibition in the Crossroads Gallery for Contemporary Art as way to bring the community and Notre Dame students together,” she said.Tags: Dia de los Muertos, Notre Dame Center for Arts and Culture, Sandra Fernandez, Snite Museum of Artlast_img read more

Sources: Trump unlikely to fill NCUA board slots for months

first_imgPresident Trump is unlikely to send the Senate his two choices to fill vacancies on the NCUA board until late fall at the earliest, according to sources in Washington and the credit union community.Those sources said the White House has not started interviewing potential candidates. They said when the nominees are selected—one Republican and one Democrat—they probably will be sent to the Senate together.Pairing the two nominees could smooth the confirmation process, they said.“They provide political cover for each other when paired, as is almost certain to happen,” said former NCUA Board Chairman Dennis Dollar. continue reading » 6SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblrlast_img read more

Costa Rica legalizes same-sex marriage in first for Central America

first_imgCosta Rica legalized same-sex marriage on Tuesday, becoming the first Central American country to do so, as a court ruling came into force at midnight.Planned celebrations did not take place because of the coronavirus pandemic, but a special program about LGBT rights was broadcast on public television and online as the first weddings were held.”This change will bring about a significant social and cultural transformation, allowing thousands of people to marry,” said President Carlos Alvarado in the program. Costa Rica is the eighth country in the Americas to recognize same-sex marriage — a group that includes Brazil, Ecuador and Argentina, as well as Canada and the US.The move was triggered by a 2018 ruling of the Supreme Court which declared the part of the law banning gay marriage was unconstitutional.That ruling gave parliament 18 months to legislate on the matter — but it did not, so the provision was automatically annulled.”Costa Rica is celebrating today: marriage equality has become a reality in the country — the first one in Central America,” said the International Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans and Intersex Association (ILGA) in a tweet. “We rejoice with you: congratulations to all those who worked so hard to make it happen!”Victor Madrigal-Borloz, the UN’s Independent Expert on Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity, called it “an extraordinary moment of celebration” in a tweet posted hours before midnight.He expressed “gratitude to the work of so many activists, and of quiet reflection of the lives of those who lived without seeing this moment”.center_img Topics :last_img read more

Rwanda launches consultations on Kagame third term

first_imgRwanda to vote on Kagame Third Term Next Week Kagame Yet to Decide on Third Term Kagame, 57, has been at the helm of Rwandan politics since 1994Rwandan lawmakers began a national tour Monday consulting people on possible constitutional changes to allow President Paul Kagame a third term in power, parliament speaker Donatilla Mukabalisa said.Last week both houses in parliament voted in support of a constitutional change, backing a petition signed by millions of citizens.“All lawmakers will go to consult with the population … to ask them their opinion about the amendment – what they expect from this reform,” Mukabalisa told AFP.Over 3.7 million people – well over half of the voters – signed a petition calling for a change to Article 101 of the constitution, which limits the president to two terms, according to Rwandan media.The consultations, which end on August 11, will guide lawmakers as they draft proposed changes.Any change to the constitution would require a vote in support by at least three-quarters of both parliamentary houses, followed by a national referendum.From the trauma of genocide, Kagame has been painted as a guarantor of stability and economic development, earning praise from donors – and his supporters say many in Rwanda view the prospect of his departure as a step into the unknown.Critics say however that he has silenced the opposition and the media.Kagame says the decision is for the “Rwandan people.”The move comes amid a wider controversy in Africa over efforts by leaders to change constitutions in order to stay in office.Neighboring Burundi has been in turmoil since April when President Pierre Nkurunziza announced his bid to stand for a third term in polls, a move branded by opponents as unconstitutional and a violation of a peace deal that paved the way to end civil war in 2006.Relatedcenter_img Rwanda MPs to debate Kagame bid for third termlast_img read more
