I hear all the time that people that work in Carrollton won't live there. I have my reasons but want to hear others opinion.

You people kill me! Really there are just so many negative unhappy people here who never count there blessings, only the ugliness in there lives. If you dwell on negativity than you attract negative people. It's as simple as that. We all go through drama but it's how you deal with it that matters. Move on! Pick yourself up and go on. Live does....with or without you. Drugs only make you hide from your life. I feel very sorry for those who are hooked but I also realize that they had a choice as do we all do. I also know that they are in every town but since ours is so little, every body knows what very body else is doing. I truely wish we could just focus on the good things in this town. Get the clowns running it out and get some good people in there who don't want to prevent our growth. We are smack dab in the middle of louisville and Cincinnati. There's a lot of potential! Don't hate your neighbor! Embrace them!

How about all the heroin that flows through this town, and soon it will be suboxone. Before it was crack and meth...the cops are in thick with the good ole boys club, teachers mess around with and tall about their personal lives with their students... That's just a few reasons off the top of my head I can think of as to why Carrollton is a no goo own. It sure used to be... But any town you can find syringes laying on the ground or have half of the county jail infested with drug addicts is no town to be given two thumbs up!

if u want to know why people don't want to live in that town just simply read through all the different topix post and you will have your answer. Almost in every post there is something either about drugs, affairs, theft or people just bashing people or the town. Even on sincere post of people looking for information someone wants to jump on there and start running their mouth. If you want people to live in your town maybe people shouldn't air so much dirty laundry!

Well I got good friends,good job and a pretty good citizen nor bother anyone and do not do drugs but I tell u what the more I see on here and in this Town makes me wanna run like hell nor ever want my kids growing up here, yea it maybe same in big cities but atleast kids have options these kids have no options! it is Sports, Church or drugs anymore here. Carrollton is having a major war with drigs trust me and just as bad as a big city.You don't see all this in Lagrange and some other small town. What kills me they wanna complain about our kids and the drugs but the county will not get anything here for them.It is only going to get worse!Bless these kids that get caught in these drugs with no help around when they do make wrong choices in life,everyone wants to point fingers but do nothing to help them it use to be when we was younger we would smoke a joint was our big drug but now days kids are trying major drugs as their first drug to try as they say teens will be teens and these drugs they are trying is not a drug u can just try once it will get a hold off you! I hope these kids realize this and are smart and stay away,byw the camp site is very nice but with all that money why could we not get something in for these kids? did we really need that? we already have one. just like all the rent to owns here that we have and Kentucky moter places we have like six each. Does anyone with money not care about our kids these days? Cause this Town sure does not act like it.

Bedford, cambellsburg, Sligo, Milton, and sanders are all small towns with the same size drug problems and lets not forget Warsaw.....meth capital of kentucky! Kids don't have anything to do around here because every time it's given to them, it's tore up and vandalized by children who's parents have no idea where they are. People need to stop looking for babysitters. You said it yourself ....we have lots to do in surrounding counties. Your kids can't do drugs if you know what they are doing at all times or you know pretty quickly after they've made a mistake and do something. Parents raise your own kids!

Look what are they expose to do? lock up the door and tell their kids no you can not go outside?No you can not go to a friends house? I am talking about Teens not little kids here. These Teens need something and all them small towns you just named have nothing as well!There are good parents that I know that are having problems with their teens on drugs it is not always the parents fault!I have teens which I shall say have never been on drugs but scared to death everytime they walk out of this house because Teens get talked into things easy, So no it is not always the Parents fault.You can do the best that you can do and be great parents and your kids can still get on drugs, but if there is nothing here for them then yes it is more often going to happen is all I am saying.

Maybe you need to look under the Carroll county Detention Center daily it is very sad, Will just make you shake your head daily as you see the ages of these kids and what these drugs are doing to them being in their 20's looking like they are in their 40's. We have got to get something here for these kids maybe a YMCA, Movie Place, Dance place for teens cause if not we gonna need about six Rehabs instead of Car part places, and banks people! You may not have teens growing up here but what about our Grandchildren? Is this what we want for them?

i hate living in carrollton there is nothing here for anyone to do. there is drugs on every corner. i am scared to death for when my 3 kids start school because there is nothing for them to do and its hard of telling what all the other kids are going to pressure them into doing. because kids see all the drugs and crap going on now so when they get older and get out of school thats all they got forward to look to. i am hoping to be out of this county and far away from here before my kids have to start school here. which is a long time from now. they need to quit worrying about spending money around here are crazy things and worry about getting something in here for the kids and possibly even the adults other then they bars.
