This is long over due. For years, we've given so much money to panhandlers in Bellefonte that I expect they now own the mansions in the nice part of town. It's about time they gave something back to the community they have over-run. There must be no doubt that those vagrants can well afford it after all we've given them. Raise the fines! With all that new income our fair town could 'take back the responsibilty' an actually fix the crumbling, heaving and falling sidewalks and other bits of unsightly cityscape. More tourists would come - bringing more outside money into the hands of our panhandlers and ultimately into the coffers of the Borough for more improvement.

My sister owns a martial arts supply store in a building that formerly houses a biker gang motorcycle repair shop. She has had vandalism done twice and money stolen - why should anyone want to go see dead downtowns?
