The Evansville City Council has given the go-ahead for an assisted living housing complex. 


The City Council unanimously approved a $17 million bond for the $23 million apartments to be built by Chicago-based Vermillion Development.

As a little kid, I remember hearing about a Civil War skirmish just a few miles down the street from where I grew up. Many residents know the story.

The number of proposed corridors for an I-69 bridge connecting Evansville and Henderson has been reduced from five to three.

The 3 finalists include 2 western corridors and 1 central corridor.
