American,
I am an American too and proud. There is no national language in our country. And they thought the same about Italians and Irish when they came here.

And after they had settled int their communities the parents forced their children to learn the known language (English) which was the only language that was taught. Other languages were offered in later years for college bound or for the curious. The Constitution and Bill or Rights are written in English, books that line the shelves of libraries from the East coast to the West coast are full on English written books. I personally speak three languages fluent and when in that country I speak their known language. We the tax payers of this great country have pay our taxes in English written forms and until late most signs were written only in English now after paying billions of dollars out of the tax coffers we are obliged to read another language...not Irish nor Italian. We are giving up the basic right as an English speaking country. Yes I do feel we are being RED DAWN is a different attack...go Wolverines.

If you travel around the world, you see that signs are often written in two or three languages. Again I say, there is no national language. we are a mish mash of people here. Get over your xenophobia.

Thank you Little Violet for the free pshyc profile..and I thought I had to go pay thousands of US dollars to have this diagnostic finding with a real rpofessional. My rhetoric may sound that I do not like foriegners but that is far from the truth..I wouldn't be married to one (she is now a US citizen) if this was a fact. It seems your wordly travels must surpass mine. With that said I hope you do not travel into the Far East and hope to find signs that are as you say are written in English or whatever language you read. Also many countries in the Middle East are only in the country's script. Nice try in showing your intellegence and projected knowldege of the world.
Back to what was said...this country was founded on the Queen's English noting the Constitution and laws of the land taht are written with that exact script.
Our taxes could be used in a better way such as to deter the influx of "illegals", not to change our signs/forms (costing tax dollars) and give them an advantage to reside in comfort in our land. Allowing the tax code to include a ITEN card where an illegal can work and claim a village in Mexico to have a return of monies more than what was paid to taxes in the sums of 30-40 thousand dollars.(Reference WHTR 13 Indy news).
By the way go to Mexico and try to speak English. And try to explain why Califronia is going broke.

Youre welcome. Glad to help you save money. been to mexico, spoke English, no problem.California is going broke (just like all the other states) because the economy tanked. oh, by the way, you failed in your knowledge of the world. the middle east is not the world, simply part of it.

If you think the common folks are bad you should look into county officials . I thought public officials were suppose to be public servants! I have never seen such a bunch of poor educated officials not willing to work with new companies.To say the least Logansport is not business friendly ! Watch out for the Health Department!!!!!!!! World War Two German tactics , Notice the gas prices? Everything is always more expensive .DO NOT BUY IN LOGANSPORT! Another note if you want it nice ,Logansport is not the place . Coveting is the norm ! If you have a little money and are from Logan they are buffed up with self! The Assessor office sends out little girls with no ID"s and a junk car with a sign . I think they must be contractors. They come on your land look into windows . I am surprised not one has been hurt ! The comments from the other posts are really accurate. I came from Gary ,Indiana ... I think Logansport is comparable ! If you really want to see how it really is take a drive down one of the river roads and see all the trailers. Take note ,look at all the trash a long the roads . So close to the river. Also , were do you think all the sewage from those trailers is going . Not enough land for septic ... Talk about "probable cause"!!!!! I guess moving to a small town is not the answer any more ! I can always tell if you are Logan . So sad !

What the heck are you babbling on about....
Give evidence to support your accusations. Are you talking about the summer fishing trailers that have dotted the country side for years, yes some are an eye sight but still this is America and one land is his own.
Yes the public officials are servants to the public and when not subjected to the correct stance of the populace one votes them out....use your vote and put your concerns in the forum, words will be seen and read. Fix it by the major vote.
Sounds like you were burnt from a health inspection, give some more information to what happened...I am very curious about our towns ability to find health problems and then get them corrected. You just do not see much in the papers on these issues as one should. A few yards grown over, junk cars, abandoned houses that supprot rats and infestations of all sorts.
The National Sociallists (Nazis) were able to put people in concentration camps and rid the population of their percieved enemies....Logansport is not even near that capapbility. Please elaborate on your concerns once again with evidence (proof).
Thank You for the write and hopefully Logansport never attains the credible notabilties of our northern city of Gary.

I'm amazed...I've never seen a place like Logansport where red necks run rampant and get away with it.
I saw one man tail gated for several blocks, even though it was a one way street with 3 lanes and very lite traffic...I stopped when they stopped and the red neck tail gater in the pick up truck cursed and made threats of physcal harm to the other driver...right in front of the city building where the police department is located. The cops were called...but the red neck was let go....so if you are into road rage move to Logansport, they let you get away with it.
I saw a 17 year old boy have a verbal dispute with his father....the father sucker punched the boy in the stomach...putting the boy on his knees! Again I saw police cars arrive...no one went to jail!
I saw another teen boy sitting in his car eating burgers & fries when some red neck 50ish guy began yelling and cursing at him for a pile of ashes and cig butts on the ground by the boy's car...the boy said he had just parked there minutes ago and that he didn't smoke and the pile wasn't his. The man called the boy a liar...among other things....no police this time, the kid left.
Logansport has churches and bars on nearly every street; half the people I saw walking around were well over-weight or had serious dental problems. I spoke to several, some seemed afraid of a stranger saying hello...other quickly wanted to tell me how awful their life is on disability and how hard it is to pay bills.
I'm disabled but from California...I guess the income is a lot different. My 19 year old works part time for 7.85 and hour plus he makes about 30 dollars in tips a night as a server. I was told the average wage in Logansport was six bucks an hour.
I would love to see a study on what percentage of the population has been arrested in the last 20 years, its a small town of less than 17,000 people with a city police force of 55 officers...that alone says a lot.
The main streets through town look very nice, but turn off into the side streets and not only are the streets bad but the houses are falling apart and junk cars sit everywhere. I counted over 90 homes that had serious roof damage and when I asked if there had been a storm everyone said no.
One friendly older man told me that in the mid 90's several factories closed their doors, since then the only new jobs have been a hog processing plant that employs about 2300 people and over half of those workers are hispanics that moved into the city starting around 1994.
I saw one city park, on wheatland avenue, that has a large flood wall to protect it from the eel river...small children, and I do mean toddlers, walking around the park all alone, no adult in sight. Across the street a house with several rose bushes and children pulling the roses and throwing them on the ground...this speaks so much of what typical life would be like in this town.
Sad sad sad sad. I would so love to see cnn do a spot light series on the people of this town, a mental hospital is near the city...I suspect the city population are former patients.
dont judge a book by its cover. Some of what u said is true. Ive lived here 38 years and this place keeps getting worse. I wish cnn would do an episode mite help the town. My question is if u are from cali why u here

Sully, you are right! It's all true! I have lived in this town for 19 years and I am always amazed how selfish and ignorant and hateful people are in this town. It could be the poor wages, or just that someone in this town acted that way tward them and they decided to act that way tward the next person they saw, and then it just passed from one person to another, to another. I worked in a Logansport factory for 10 years with a pay of about $11.00 an hour when I quit to be a stay-home-mom. My husband works in a factory, where I met him, and has been there for 16 years. He makes about $2200 a month and it is tough with 2 kids now. It really stinks when we see some of the hispanic driving $25,000 cars and trucks and we have a car that is 12 years old and a truck that is over 20 years old. I am not a racest but something is truely not right.
Back in about 1994, I was still working in the factory when we had a meeting with one of the police detectives that came in and said a few word about Logansport crime at that time. She had stated that the crime is on the rise because of the raise of the hispanic population. She had stated that on some of the signs in Mexco,they advertised that Logansport was a good place to find jobs. She also stated that when they came, they brought the drugs and the gangs also.( not to mention every family member they had.)Just about every time I read the paper about the police reports, there are a number of hispanics without a driver's license caught driving.
And you are right about the homes needing repair, but the thing about that is that only the hispanic have the money to fix their house.
Like I said, I am a stay-home-mom and I can no longer aford to stay home. I love being home with my kids and I am desperate to have some sort of stay-home job, but there is nothing but scam advertisements for stay-home jobs unless you want to babysit. It worries me when my son's attitude tward us, being his parents and wanting him to do what he is told, changed as soon as he started kindergarten. The kids today are being brought up with the same selfish and disrespect for others that their parents have. It is a very sad, sad place to be in anymore.

Let me ask you somethIng... Why is it that most of the white people especially men are child molester!!!!!?????

I'm visiting Logansport next weekend & seriously hope I have a better perspective of the town afterwards. All towns have good & bad, so I shall withhold my judgement for now.
