Community welcomed inside Veterans Memorial Coliseum

News /

EVANSVILLE, Ind. (WEHT) -- People who remember attending concerts and other events at the Veterans Memorial Coliseum met one more time -- for now -- for an "open house" on Sunday.

Sunday's open house is among the last times the public can look inside the coliseum for now because Vanderburgh County is taking over the coliseum's lease and transforming the space into a "multi-use" facility.

Though it will continue using American Rescue Plan Act dollars to subsidize the project, the county says it is looking for financial help to make the project a reality.

"The total project is a guesstimate between $20 to $25 million," President of the Vanderburgh County Council Jill Ann Hahn said. "It is essential that the heating, the air conditioning, the electrical and the plumbing be done, because those things have not been done for many, many, many, years. They need to be put up to code."

DAWSON SPRINGS, Ky. (WEHT) -- Dozens met at Dawson Springs's First Baptist Church to dedicate five new homes that will be given to December 2021 tornado survivors.

Members of the community and Governor Andy Beshear were in attendance to remind each other they are not giving up on the city rebuild.

Some said in their remarks on Saturday that it is still hard to imagine the kind of destruction the tornado left in the city.

Now two years later, Kentucky State Trooper Ethan Garrison and his wife -- Briana -- are among the families moving into new homes after losing their trailer.

They tell Eyewitness News they were in disbelief when their trailer was destroyed, but the couple is now moving into their new Habitat for Humanity home in a couple weeks.
