Proudly affiliated with the Winnipeg Jets (NHL) and the Manitoba Moose (AHL), the Icemen play at the Jacksonville Veterans Memorial Arena in Downtown Jacksonville.EDITOR FOOTNOTE: The Evansville Icemen franchise was forced to move from Evansville because the City and Evansville Icemen couldn’t come to contractual terms concerning a 5 year contract renewal. Evansville Icemen owner Ron Geary deemed the proposed 5 year contact unacceptable and decided to relocate the team.In 2016 the Evansville Icemen announced that they were moving to Owensboro, Kentucky to play in the historical Sports Center. After it was deemed that it was too expensive to make it feasible to play Hockey in the Owensboro Sports Center the Evansville Icemen franchise was transferred to Jacksonvile, Florida.After the Icemen left town a local businessman and the owner of VenueWoks started the Evansville Thunderbolts. When it look like the Thunderbolts weren’t going to make it through the season Mayor Winnecke discretely convinced the leadership of City Council to allow the City of Evansville to quietly take financial ownership of the Evansville Thunderbolts.To date City Controller Russ Lloyd Jr. hasn’t given members of the Evansville City Council or the taxpayers of Evansville an accurate and detailed financial breakdown of the profits or losses for the Thunderbolts 2017 hockey season. We have been told by creditable sources that the Evansville Thunderbolts lost many hundreds of thousands during the 2017 hockey season.Very little has been said on how Mayor Winnecke plans to pay for the Evansville Thunderbolts Hockey 2018 team operating expenses? we can’t find any reference to the funding of the Evansville Thunderbolts in the proposed 2018 City operating budget?

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Fires burned and looters struck Thursday after violent protests over the death of a black man in police custody rocked a Minneapolis neighborhood for a second straight night, with damage stretching for miles across the city and Mayor Jacob Frey appealing to the governor to activate the National Guard.Amid the violence, a man was found fatally shot Wednesday night near a pawn shop. Asked to confirm reports that he had been shot by a store owner, police spokesman John Elder said that was “one of the theories.”Pockets of looting continued Thursday at stores where windows and doors were smashed. KSTP-TV reported some fires at businesses continued to burn with no firefighters on scene. A liquor store employee displayed a gun as he stood among the debris of broken bottles and beer cans inside the business.Protesters began gathering in the early afternoon Wednesday near the city’s 3rd Precinct station, in the southern part of the city where 46-year-old George Floyd died on Memorial Day after an officer knelt on his neck until he became unresponsive. Protesters also skirmished with officers, who fired rubber bullets and tear gas in a repeat of Tuesday night’s confrontation.On Thursday morning, smoke hung over Minneapolis and looters carried merchandise from a damaged Target store with no interference by police. Video of the store’s interior showed empty clothing racks and shelves and debris strewn about. Obscenities were spray-painted on the exterior of the store.Protests spread to other U.S. cities. In California, hundreds of people protesting Floyd’s death blocked a Los Angeles freeway and shattered windows of California Highway Patrol cruisers on Wednesday.It was a second and much more violent night in Minneapolis since the death of Floyd, whom police were seeking to arrest outside a Minneapolis grocery store on a report of a counterfeit bill being passed. A bystander’s cellphone video showed an officer kneeling on Floyd ’s neck for almost eight minutes as he eventually became unresponsive.sThe U.S. Attorney’s Office and the FBI in Minneapolis said Thursday they were conducting “a robust criminal investigation” into Floyd’s death and was making the case a priority. The FBI had already announced it was investigating whether Floyd’s civil rights were violated. The new announcement came a day after President Donald Trump tweeted that he had asked an investigation to be expedited.Mayor Jacob Frey tweeted for calm early Thursday. “Please, Minneapolis, we cannot let tragedy beget more tragedy,” he said on Twitter. He also asked for the public’s help in keeping the peace.The officer and three others were fired Tuesday, and on Wednesday, Frey called for him to be criminally charged.Frey asked Gov. Tim Walz to activate the National Guard, a spokesman confirmed Thursday. The governor’s office didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment. Walz tweeted for calm Wednesday night, calling the violence “an extremely dangerous situation” and urging people to leave the scene.On Wednesday night, officers responding to a reported stabbing near the protests found a man lying on the sidewalk with what turned out to be a bullet wound, Elder said. The man was pronounced dead at a local hospital. Elder said a suspect was in custody but said the facts leading up to the shooting were “still being sorted out.”
