If you are a young person, you are probably sick and tired of hearing all of this 'back to school' nonsense - you're just trying to enjoy what little time you have left of summer break. I have some more school-related news, but this is good news. This is information about getting OUT of school, at least for a few hours.

Teachers and students, pay attention because the Evansville Thunderbolts hockey team has announced the date for their annual Education Day Game. It is, without a doubt, one of the biggest games of the year for the Thunderbolts. It’s great for the ‘Bolts because thousands of students (and potential new fans) get to see them play at the Ford Center – and the students love it because they get out of school for a couple of hours.

If you are a teacher or school administrator, remember this date – Tuesday, October 25, 2022 – that’s the day you don’t want to miss out on.

Go ahead and shoot Stephen an email if you want to bring your school to the game.

See How Downtown Evansville Has Changed Over the Years

I find looking back on the way things used to be fascinating. Don't get me wrong, I'm glad I'm living through the current time period. The conveniences of answering any question we have in seconds, or ordering practically anything we want or need and having it delivered to our doorstep is pretty sweet. But, there is something fun about seeing how things around us have evolved. As an Evansville native, and spending quite a bit of my time in downtown Evansville (that's where the station is located), I've always appreciated the older architecture of the buildings around the area. So, I dug into the Willard Library Archives to see how a few of those areas look now compared to then. Some have changed a little, others quite a bit, and a few don't even exist any more. Take a look.
