Does Anyone agree that Ansted Needs More Activities for families and kids to do. Seriously there is nothing here for the children to do so I don't understand why more people aren't protesting on this. I heard they were tearing down the Christina Apartments so why not take that piece of property and build a community pool like Oak Hill has and charge so much to get in. It would even bring the town of Ansted Income in as well to even build the town more. Ansted shouldn't just be for retirement people it ought to be for everyone. If the children have nothing to do they either end up on drugs or leaving the town once they get older and sooner or later Ansted will have no population because there is nothing here to do and why don't Ansted have a basketball court or a skate park or something like every other city has. I just don't understand why Ansted doesn't do anything for the kids amusement afterall if we had more activities maybe more people would be interested in coming to this town and visiting or even living.

Thats what i was wondering. I've seen them working on it. Wonder if it will still be a skating rink or something else. It would be nice for kids to have something to do!!

Years ago anstd had a movie theater, a skating rink, and at least one diner where kids could hang out talk, drink a pepsi, RC giving kids plenty to do but if they had that now, would they go there or would those things just close becouse the kids would want their drugs instead.

Yes all of this is true but Kids aren't given the chance to choose because the mayor won't do anything. The kids don't even have a basketball court. When I grew up here there was one and then they just took it out. Ansted needs to take the ballfield and put a basketball court in and a skatepark for the kids. Every town I know just about has one of these. I know Ansted ain't that poor. Someone said that the mayor said this was a community for the retired people. What's going to happen when all the retirement people done passed on or move away and all that is left is our children. Ansted will have no future because all the kids will either prove away, be in jail, or have drug abuse real bad. My children are already begging me and my husband to move and says there is nothing to do here but sit at home so I know if things don't change my children will end up leaving Ansted. I'm already thinkin about it i mean i want my children to have a good life not be around a bunch of druggies . Ansted is being robbed everyday by these people and nothing is ever done. So what are we suppose to do just sit back and let them take it. We seriously need a new mayor in this town..One that actually gives a Dang!!!!

Why would he do such a thing???? Sounds to me like the mayor wants Ansted Gone, is Against it and needs to be voted out of there if this is true. Ansted should be for everyone and the pill and drug pushers need to be punished!!!!

I Agree!!! Ansted needs a new mayor and someone needs to run because this one isn't doing his job or anything else. Ansted is not for just the retired people its for everyone. We need things here for families and stuff to do. If its just for the retirement people then let them pay all the taxes and stuff if none going for the kids. This is unexcusable and they need to get someone in there that will do something useful and then i hear that dollar general wanted to buy the building where midstate was and the mayor turned them down for a business license. My gosh i've always wanted something here like that. I'd like to see Ansted grow some with more businesses and stuff that people can actually afford around here!!!

this mayor and council has wasted more money trying 2 build monuments 4 physical appearances than actually doing anything 4 the town. hobbs wants 2 move up 2 the county commission and certain members of council r silly enough 2 think he will carry them with him. people from out of town have more influence on decisions about this town than the people who live here.

seen a few comments bout ansted mayor going easy on the druggies...just so all you good tax paying anstedians know;;;; the nastiest excuse for a pill whore in the town gets her utilities paid by ole mr. mayor. the cmplex that she keeps her lair at is shut down, and all her expenses are paid by yhe good ppl of this town. so next time you see her slithering down the road looking for her next trick...maybe you shouls ask her bout it....ppl like her are the root of this towns problem...we should run em outta town....you cant clean house without taking out the trash.

Just curious but could you name some names? I'm not in town much but I would like to know because the mayor does too much underhanded stuff that the people don't know about.He is one sorry,dirty,lying jackass. He thinks everybody is dumb and don't know what goes on.

You got that right and this town needs a new one. I see druggies out there and hear about them stealing stuff and breaking into houses and they are all still here and around and you wonder how a person can do so much and still be out so obviously something is wrong with this picture. Then there is nothing for kids to do here its like saying he wants to the kids to do drugs because hes not helping them get off the streets and instead keeping all the pimps, druggies, etc on them. Just dont make sense to me.

Well, i've heard alot of people say that she was involved in that safe deal that was stolen a while back that her vehicle was one that transported it from the house it was stolen from to the other house it was stored at until the other persons vehicle came to retrieve it and then called and reported her vehicle stolen so she couldn't get in trouble but I've also heard that the Fbi took this case over and a total of 13 fingerprints were found on this safe and hers was one of them. Enough is enough these people need behind bars so this town can be safe and if it's true that the mayor is doing this then he needs to go with them!

As a kid all I had was the skating rink and people ruined it for everyone bringing fights and drugs but it was the only thing this town had so everyone delt with it and had fun. I miss the skating rink! All there is for kids to do now is sit at shell bored half to death. There isn't even anything for adults to do, I think they should turn the Veterns place in town back into the theater and give them the old police station that's now like a supermarket because that's a big enough place for them all to gather and have a good meal and talk. The skating rink was suppose to be open and finished this summer but they only have half the roof done so I doubt that, maybe next year. People need to have the whole town sign a paper and say what they want and then send it to the mayor because if he wants to be a good mayor of the town he will care what the town wants.

It is not the towns place to give you and your kids something to do. Use your own imagination and come up with something for your kids to do. You had them, you take care of them. Give them chores around the house so they can learn some responsibility. Sit down and help them with their school work. You may learn something yourself. Instead of bitchin about the veterans having the old theater for a center, take the kids to the veterans center and introduce them to some real men. Men who sacrificed and saved all of our butts. Maybe the kids could help out at the center instead of sitting around in front of the tv or playing video games.
