See if former Sioux City Musketeer, Ruslan Fedotenko, now Pittsburgh Penguin, can pull off a win in game 4 of the Stanley Cup Finals tonight. The Penguins take on the Detroit Red Wings on home ice. Catch the game at 7:00 central time on Versus.

Before breaking into the NHL Fedotenko was a Sioux City Musketeer during the 1998-99 season. He went on to play for the Philadelphia Flyers until 2002 when he signed with the Tampa Bay Lightning. It was here that Fedotenko had his first Stanley cup victory scoring the game winning goal in game 7 of the 2004 finals, bringing the cup to the Tampa Bay franchise for the first time. Fedotenko brought “Lord Stanley” back to Sioux City on August 15, 2004 to share with over 3,000 fans at the Tyson Events Center.

Fedotenko’s going for cup number two in this year’s Stanley Cup Finals. Pittsburgh is down by one game in the series going into game 4 tonight. Pittsburgh is looking for revenge after losing to Detroit in game 6 of the Stanley Cup Finals last year.

Good luck to Ruslan!

Sioux City Design Works

This afternoon I took the Sioux City Design Works visual survey to “help ensure the future vision of the community is reflected in the physical shape and character of the built environment.” Sioux City Design Works put together a survey that allows those taking to view and rate a set of images. The survey took me about 10 minutes to complete and was pretty fun. The images focused on design elements such as parking, signs, public space, etc. I even got to list my two favorite places in Sioux City at the end.

Check out the survey and have your opinions heard on future development and redevelopment in Sioux City. A series of town hall meetings will be held June 22-25. Visit for more information on this project.SarahSignature copy
