The University of Evansville's civil engineering program has been named recipient of the American Society of Civil Engineers' Walter LeFevre Award for 2009. The award is given each year to the nation's top large civil engineering program and also to the nation's top small civil engineering program. It was created in 2008 to recognize accredited civil engineering programs "that promote professional licensure, ethics and professionalism."

As far as Jerry Hopp is concerned, Grand Prix unlimited hydroplanes will bring the thunder back to Thunder on the Ohio on Aug. 21-23. "We are supercharged 468 ccs, and we'll bring all kinds of noise," said Hopp, Graham Trucking's Grand Prix driver and a former unlimited driver. The American Boat Racing Association announced Wednesday that the Grand Prix boats will complement the larger unlimiteds. "Our top speeds are 160 to 165 mph," Hopp said. "We'll bring seven boats to Evansville and run on a 12/3-mile course. Our boats are 24 to 26 feet long and generate 1,300 horsepower. Most Most are Chevy motors." By comparison, unlimiteds are 28-foot, 6,800-pound crafts that run primarily T-55, L7C jet turbine military helicopter engines and can reach speeds of 200 mph on the straightaways. For ...

EVANSVILLE - It wasn't quite the same as sitting in the Hofbrauhaus, the famous beer hall in Munich. But eating at the tent set up for Germania Maennerchor's Volksfest on Thursday was about as close as a Tri-State resident could come without getting on a plane. By noon of the first day of the annual festival, a solid number of people had ventured out to enjoy the food, beer, music and camaraderie. Scott Lantaff was fortunate to have the day off from his job at SABIC-Innovative Plastics in Mount Vernon, Ind. Lunchtime found him at the Volksfest. RIGHT: Jeff Westfall of Evansville smiles after singing "Ein Prosit" with a stein full of beer in hand at the opening of the annual Volksfest. Lantaff said he comes to the event as often as he can. "Every once in a while, it's nice to get some g...

The rising Ohio River has caused the cancellation of this weekend's bierstube and concerts on lower Dress Plaza by Red Eye Max and Stompbox 40. The events were part of the Bud Light Riverfront Concert Series presented by the Growth Alliance for Greater Evansville. While those concerts had to be dropped, GAGE officials said the higher river does not affect entertainment planned by Casino Aztar on its outdoor Events Plaza. Also, the farmer's market, car cruise-in and Downtown Loft & Condominium Tour from 4 to 7 p.m. Friday will continue as planned. - Rich Davis Source: http://www.courierpress.com/news/2009/aug/06/rising-ohio-cancels-riverfront-concerts-bierstube/

We have good news today on the economic front in Evansville. Old National Bank has been ranked 28th amongst a list of 150 best performers. In 2007 Old National Bank was ranked 114th. Old National was not the only Tri-State bank on the list. Integra Bancorp came in at 99th and Fifth Third Bank came in at 114th.   We can also report that Mead Johnson had a successful initial public offering. Mead Johnson was able to raise $ 720 million which was higher than anticipated.   We congratulate our local banks as well as Mead Johnson for their achievements.
