VA Butler is hosting a Poverty Simulation this Friday on the VA Butler campus.

The simulation is sponsored by the Butler County Local Housing Options Team to expose individuals to the realities of poverty.

The poverty simulation is a guided experience that exposes participants to the realities of poverty. During the simulation, participants assume the roles of families facing poverty. The task for each family is to provide basic necessities and shelter during four fifteen-minute weeks, while balancing the requirements of various service providers with the realities of living day-to-day in poverty.

The simulation will be held in the auditorium of Building One this Friday between the hours of 1:30 and 3:30pm.

I would like to know the definition of poverty in this day and age. People walking around with goverment paid cell phones smoking ciggerettes and obviously overweight in line for a free meal by local churches then go to their HUD house plop down and watch their big screen tv or play their game boys while they stay nice and warm hitting the pipe. Poverty was alot different in my salad days

If you really ARE from nyc, why would your opinion about Butler even matter?

Even if you lived here in the past, you're gone now!

Mind your own business!

We will take care of this ourselves.

Maybe you should learn about IP addresses and pc locations. I have lived and continue to live in Butler for over 50 years. I can see you're doing a fine job of ''taking care of ourselves'' maybe that's why Butler is in the shape it is.

I'm not responsible for anyone else but myself.

Why weren't you man enough to sign onto topix and use Butler as your hometown? Are you ashamed?

IP addresses and PC locations arent as important as honesty and integrity.

Know what, I agree with ya.
My grandparents were poor, they took on an extra job, or, as in the case of my grantfather, with whatever free time he had, he shined shoes for $2 apiece just to make ends meet.
Ya don't see today's poor folks displaying that kind of character and fortitude!

I Agree!! Does the NYC dude watch the news? Poverty? Americans are getting it without vaseline. NYC has some worse conditions than Butler City will ever see. Hey NYC dude, maybe you can go do some charity work for the ghetto's of NYC. Butler people do stick together and will take a stand, now you take of yours. Mind your own.

Hey pooper swillie or what ever your real name is, i posted a article to be commented on and you make an issue where i'm from like you are the great protector of butler, funny you say you're not responsible for anyone but yourself yet you wear the cloak of great protector of butler, i have read some of your dribble in other posts and your style and constant rah rah rah remind of a guy that use to go as ''freddy pickle''on this site, so go home and get your pappys shine box and take princess shelby with you since it seems she can't unload her food stamps for cash so she can buy her cigs and soda pop
