  • Let’s have new league take place of NHL

    The Evansville Icemen, a minor league hockey team, surprised a lot of people, including me by drawing crowds as large as 9,403 for a game last season.
    When I read that they needed an average attendance of 3,000 to make money under their lease in the new Ford Center, I didn’t think they could do it, considering the Evansville Triplets, a top-level (Class AAA) minor league baseball team averaged only about half that attendance in the late 1970s and early ’80s and baseball is more popular in southwestern Indiana than hockey is.

    Federal regulators recently roiled America’s farmers with the release of new rules for financial instruments. The Commodity Futures Trading Commission, one of the agencies charged with implementing the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform Act, officially announced the new requirements and said they would take effect by year’s end.

    I haven’t yet decided which old shoe I am going to put out for St. Nicholas’ visit Wednesday night. With any luck, I will find a few pieces of chocolate inside the next morning.

    Last year I put the shoe outside my Tell City office and enjoyed several chocolate bars and assorted sweets. Someone who must not know me very well also deposited a small lump of coal. I got a kick out of that.
