I will use my role to campaign for party policies on primary, secondary and third level education and on regional development in the North West. I will be a voice for the members, and will push for continued reform within Fianna Fáil and within politics in this country.” Claudia Kennedy said: “I want to thank the members who put their trust in me to represent them on the Ard Comhairle. For the first time, there were more women than men elected this weekend. Four out of five of the party’s new vice presidents are female, while half of the newly elected Committee of Twenty members are also female. This is a testament to the calibre of the female candidates, and a true sign of Fianna Fáil’s real commitment to reform.  We are committed to radically increasing female participation in politics and the Ard Comhairle will lead the way.”Donegal Senator Brian Ó Domhnaill has congratulated Ms McGinley and Ms Kennedy on their successful election and has thanked the Fianna Fáil members from across Co Donegal for attended the Ard Fheis.“More than 4,000 Fianna Fáil members from communities across the country attended the 73rd Fianna Fáil Ard Fheis at the weekend.  There was overwhelming support for plans to change how the party does its business. Delegates unanimously passed a motion to move to a one-member-one-vote system, which means that every single member of Fianna Fáil will now have an input in party business.“The positive atmosphere and the energy we saw this weekend is testament to the fact that Fianna Fáil is on the road to recovery, and we have has a strong and vital role to play in the future of Irish politics. I want to thank all of those from across Co Donegal who travelled up to the Ard Fheis and made their voices heard about the future of the party,” said Senator Ó Domhnaill.  DONEGAL TEACHERS JOIN FIANNA FAIL TOP TABLE was last modified: March 5th, 2012 by BrendaShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)last_img

Tri-State Treasure: The Veterans Memorial Coliseum

first_imgMARCH 8TH, 2019 TOMMY MASON EVANSVILLE, INDIANAFrom basketball to big musical performers to bingo and even body slams Evansville’s Veterans Memorial Coliseum has hosted a wide range of events since its dedication in 1917. The 6,600 square foot limestone building was officially known as the Soldiers and Sailors Memorial Coliseum after construction in memory of those who served in the Civil War and the Spanish American War.After the completion of what is now the Old National Events Plaza in the early ’70s, Vanderburgh County officials had no use for the aging structure.General Manager Andrea Stafford says a new generation of veterans would soon be tasked with preserving the monument for many years to come.“Veterans Council said please let us take it over. We’ll maintain it. We’ll keep it open. We keep it running. So, they did. They took it over in 1971. They pay a dollar a year,” says Stafford.On average, the Coliseum hosts 75 events per year. In the 1970s and 80s regional pro wrestling promotions like the continental wrestling association.Stafford shares some of the big-name grapplers who jerked the curtain at the Coliseum.“Jerry Lawler, Bill Dundee, Dutchman Tell, Stone Cold Steve Austin, the Rock, and the Undertaker. A lot of them actually got their start here,” says Stafford.And the list goes on with some of the most compelling live broadcasts shot in the bowels of the building.Stafford says there’s another show happen in those halls now. “We have some celebrities downstairs too. I don’t know if people have died in the building or they have an attachment to it. There is some spooks downstairs,” says Stafford.Stafford describes one of those spirits as a dark entity. That cell is part of a network of tunnels connecting it to the old jail and the old courthouse where prisoners would be transported.Those passages have since been sealed. The 4000-seat coliseum would later play host to the Evansville College Purple Aces basketball team before relocating to Roberts Municipal Stadium in 1950.Although, the event calendar has become a bit thinner in the 21st century the spirit of those veterans and the monument they allow us to enjoy makes this a must see Tri-State Treasure.Comments0 commentsFacebookTwitterCopy LinkEmailSharelast_img
