Austin does have many downfalls now. The drugs, prostitution, theft and violence are running rampant. Properties are deteriorating and business have moved out/gone under due to the local economic conditions. Jobs are scare or if they are available it’s at a wage that barely allows one to rent from a local slum lord let alone pay their bills, buy groceries and provide the necessities for their family. Austin has hit some very difficult and pathetic times. As for 1986, I’d much prefer Austin be what it was then as to what it is today. It was still a bit rough then, but at least we could enjoy being out without worrying about being approached by a drug dealer or prostitute while trying to go into a local store. We could go up to the park and not worry about having to avoid dirty needles. We could walk on the streets both day and night without a fear of being accosted. And, at least the police force would then show up to a scene when called. Now, it’s just sad to have to drive through town and see how it’s been allowed to “go to the dogs”. Yet, where can the blame lie for this? It’s a combination of several things. Geographically, Austin is in a good location for economical growth. It lies on both an interstate system as well as a US roadway. It’s in the triangle area of Cincinnati, Indianapolis and Louisville, three cities that would allow for goods and products to be provided to other manufacturers, etc. Yet, with these idea/ideal situations, our past and previous politicians have not sold Austin as an area that would be a beneficial location for a company to have as a business site. Businesses are reluctant to locate here because of the reputation, which in turn causes the town to lose out on economic growth. This leaves the citizens desperate for means of funds, causing alternative illegal activities to acquire money, which in turn increases the crime rates. Lack of education is also a major cause of those whom turn to alternative lifestyles rather than being a productive citizen. If you graduated from Austin in 1986 then we were in a close proximity of time of growing up in Austin. If you recall, during that time, what did we, as kids/teens, have to do that was educational and productive other than a church or school activity? There were no programs that kids could participate in that allowed them to be educated on a world and opportunities outside of Scott County. There were no programs to help educate teens in areas that could have helped with the reduction of teen pregnancies, drug use and criminal activities. There were no programs that would have allowed kids to see what type of employment/careers were available and how they could obtain the education to be able to follow the dream of what they wanted to be when they grew up. There were no “fun” programs/activities that kids could have participated in that would have prevented them from being bored and take part in illegal and/or destructive activities. And, the problem is, that’s still true today. Austin is offering nothing to its youth, whom, in turn, is only going to repeat the cycle, thus leaving Austin in the same if not worse position than it is now. And, there are no programs to help the adults and senior citizens improve their lifestyles as well. The only positives that I’ve noticed in Austin, especially since it’s been dubbed “a city” are the pretty new street lights and street signs located along the deteriorating Main Street and the signs coming into town announcing Austin’s name, its legal name status (city) and its mayor. I’m not sure about Mayor Campbell, but I’d be ashamed to have my name associated with a town in which I’ve not made any improvements to. The bottom line is, until there are people whom want to work to make improvements to Austin by implementing programs to help educate, employ its citizens and enforce the laws, Austin will only worsen as time goes by.

Who are we trying fool? Austin has every drug known to man being sold and some of the deadliest homemade drugs being made. To top it off, working girls are everywhere not just on
Rual street or man ave. You cam find them walking in Spicer Town, 6th street, Morgans parking lot, and many other areas around town.
Do other small towns have working girls? NO.

Your lucky to find a working girl in a big city.

It's obvious that you've probably never been to a big city, and NO, Thunder over Louisville doesn't count. Please put down the crack pipe & brush up on your grammer "spelling" before you post again. It has LOW IQ all over it. Good day!

Coz, I was born and raised in Austin. The best part about Austin was moving away. Most (not all) but most of the homes are dumps, the town looks like it always has (crap) and when I visit the family I'm more worried about being robbed, beaten or murdered then living in Jeff.
So ur the p-ssy of ur family then?
