Evansville residents have their choice of a few indoor swimming facilities, including two YMCA pools (one with two swim lanes) and the city-run Lloyd Pool. However, ask many of them about Lloyd Pool and you’re very likely to hear it ranks very low in their opinions. The indoor Olympic-size pool, located at 6101 N. First Ave., has served Evansville schools and residents for 40 years and is showing its age.

When the United Leasing Championship is held April 27 through May 3, the focus won’t be entirely on golf, but what the sport can do to give back to the community. The Golf Gives Back program was born three years ago, which allows charities to sell tickets to the golf championship at Victoria National Golf Club in Newburgh, Indiana, and receive 100 percent of the ticket sales proceeds. Eighty charities participate and in the last year alone, the program raised $130,000 just through the ticket purchase. Over the last three years, more than $200,000 has gone to the charities.
