If you guys and ladies keep complaining Benton may decide to make many changes and I'm sure one or more will hit you sooner or later. Benton is a nice quiet town so you better watch what you start. Compaints about businesses that keep that plce on the map and pay city taxes can be greatly harmed and be forced out then you will be at fault. Nothing wrong with it just the way it is.

Why do you want to put so many hard working people out of a job? It may look like an eye sore to you and others but families and chilrdren are fed by people who work at these places. It's wonderful to see these businesses open and busy. It means they pay taxes and stay off of the food stamp rolls. Doesn't that mean anything to you?

Read the comments with great interests. We can talk about it and pass every law imaginable to do away with unsitely eye sores in the community and it will have no major effect on the problem. It will take a giant leap to "PRIDE" in each and every individual before this will be resolved. Until this committment is made we will have to put up with the trash.

The 10 foot by 30 foot pile of trash behind the yardsale place that is across from Glamorous Spalon in Draffenville. It's right past the road dept on hwy 68 West.

A coat of paint would help most of these places, but again it all goes back to pride in self, pride in business you run, and pride in community

I disagree, I drove through Benton and made the loop and couldn't believe how run down it is now. It has been about 20 years since I have been to Benton. Run down stores everywhere. It used to be a very pretty little town but not anymore.

You seem used to seeing it as it is now. But after I drove through after 20 years I could easily tell their is no pride in keeping business buildings up or parking lots. Benton used to be a pretty little town but not anymore. Maybe Wanda is the Mafia of Benton.

Worst eye sore in the county? That dang hillbilly that lives up there on 68 on the county line (going to/coming from Paducah) Matress nailed up on a tree and all that other garbage lying around. Makes Sanford and sons look like the Tajmahal! He calls it hillbilly art. Thats wonderful but he and I differ greatly on art. If I was someone passing through I and seen a place like that when i crossed the county line, I would probably turn around and head back the way I came. Looks like some Deliverance could happen out that way... Good grief, clean that junk up.
