first_imgIS IT TRUE that the Evansville Sports Corporation has a new Executive Director to replace the fellow who left after a short time in April?…the new guys name is Eric Marvin who left a similar position in Columbus, Indiana to accept the position in Evansville?…the Evansville Sports Corporation has seen some success at bringing events of substance to town including the NCAA Division Two Basketball Tournament?…what the ESC has been challenged with is getting any ticket sales of significance to the events they have brought to the Ford Center?…it can be quite demoralizing to play or even attend an event in a 10,000 seat facility and have a whopping 500 fans show up?…it was actually possible stacking the rooms in the new downtown Doubletree with four people each to get all of the athletes and fans for some games into the hotel?…we do wish MR. Marvin much success, but hope he realizes the limitations of the goals he will be charged with achieving?…there is always a Fort Worth or Wichita available if he does a good job of bringing events to town and still gets nearly no crowd in the seats?IS IT TRUE that there is a statue to honor confederate soldiers who died in Evansville in the Oak Hill Cemetery?…it has been there for some time and doesn’t glorify any general so we hope that no one gets inspired by the violence in Charlottesville, Virginia or the mob that toppled a statue in North Carolina?…the Evansville statue has been there for a long time and has not been the target of any outrage?…if the statue really causes any outrage into any of our good citizens then let’s move it to the museum, but otherwise let’s continue to leave it where it is along with the headstones of many other individuals who died in the civil war who are buried in Evansville’s cemeteries?IS IT TRUE that Attorney Scott Danks has announced that he intends to step down as the Vanderburgh County Democratic party chairman?  …Mr Danks said; being the Chairmen of the Vanderburgh Democratic party has affected his work and family life”? …we are sorry to hear about Dank’s decision because he started to turn the party around in the short time he was chairman?  …that his successor has some big shoes to fill?  …we wish Mr. Danks only the best in the future?
