What's Happening Today

* Mayor Winnecke on Today's Jazz Flight to Talk about We Are Evansville Campaign

Evansville Mayor Lloyd Winnecke will be talking with Paul Mattingly on WUEV’s Afternoon Jazz Flight today at 5 p.m. about the “We Are Evansville” campaign. Be sure to tune in to listen on your radio or via wuev.org to what is sure to be an interesting discussion.

The “We Are Evansville” campaign is a response to a recent Gallup Inc. study that ranked Evansville near the botton of a well-being index, prompting some to describe it as a “miserable” city. Mayor Winnecke is encouraging the entire Evansville community to join in the “We Are Evansville” campaign and counteract what he says is an inaccurate portrayal of the city.

* Wellness Nurse in Ridgway Lobby Today!

The employee wellness nurse will be in Ridgway University Center lobby Monday, May 20, 1-3 p.m.  Stop by for any health care questions, to have your blood pressure or blood sugar checked, or to weigh.  Health care literature will also be available on several topics.

* Margaret McMullan

Congratulations to Department of Creative Writing Professor Margaret McMullan whose introduction to Vanished by the Danube: Peace, War, Revolution, and Flight to the West by Charles Farkas was recently published by State University of New York (SUNY) Press. President Bill Clinton says it's "Evocative...Farkas pays tribute to the simple elegance of his native country in the years preceding WWII, while never sparing us the truth about the horrors to come. In his story we are reminded that resourcefulness and optimism can prevail even in the face of great struggle." Professor McMullan was a 2010 Fulbright Professor at the University of Pécs in Pécs, Hungary and currently holds the Melvin Peterson Endowed Chair in Literature and Writing.
