I'm so over hearing about people dieing in this town! It seems like every week there is another 2 or 3 people in the paper that have either comitted suicide or killed themselves! WHen is enough going to be enough? When are the citizens in this town going to step up and try to help these people? There are people out there that care where are you at?!

I Don't think i've seen but a handful (If that) of Nice, respectful, things said about those that have passed on this website. For example, It's pretty sad that 2 weeks ago a thread got started about a boy named Brock Turley, and just last night this boy was hurt, and possibly because of Rumors. The Dead don't even stand a chance on here: Dustin Gaddis for starters. Matt Ledford seems to be the center of attention on here, and he passed almost 4 years ago!! Brandon Higbee was another of the names that I've seen on here.
Come on people for real! Everyone has things they aren't proud of, and secrets...EVERYONE -including me! Do you really think everyone wants their "Dirty Laundry" aired all over the internet? No Body is Perfect! People need to start focusing on the Good of themselves and everyone around them instead of being more worried about speaking negative about everything.
=======
I'd like To pay respect for those who have passed away due to overdose/suicide in the past few years. Let it be an eye opener to just how many there have been:

-Chris Geise
-Chris Turley
-Matt Ledford
-Larry Nunn
-Andrew Trisler
-Brendon Higbee
-Dustin Gaddis
-Sheryl Ray

There are a few more but i can't remember their names, my heart goes out to their Families they left behind.
==========
HOW MANY MORE PEOPLE HAVE TO DIE BEFORE PEOPLE IN THIS TOWN START TO CARE? If you have ever said anything negative about these people this town has lost to suicide and overdoses, and you have ever said anyting negative about them, or fed the drama that was started on here, you should just consider yourself a murderer! People will remember the negative things said about them, before they can recall the positive. If this town can't get their acts together, there will be no one left!

If people are dumb enough to do drugs and get in that lifestyle let them all overdose. The ones that don't OD, let them all go to jail.

I have to agree,anyone who hasn't faced this in their family has no idea.I grew up in Connersville in the seventies and the biggest thing out there was Quualudes, which where taken off the market because of so many accidental overdoses.These oxi's are a whole lot worse and seem to be easier to get, all you need is a doctor and I have heard Indy has plenty handing them out.I hate it when I read the paper and people I grew up with are losing their children to this awful thing.Hell I admit in my day smoking pot was an everyday thing, but I don't remember kids doing any powerful stuff EVERYDAY! The bad thing is that there is nothing for the younger crowd to do in C'ville,you figure with the loss of jobs the older people are taking even the fast food jobs, so teenagers don't stand a chance.I hate to say it but the world is a different place than when I was growing up. Hell when I was a kid if I did something bad I'd rather face the cops than my parents cause mine would have beat me to death and it isn't like that now. I know my kids aren't afraid of me, I didn't want them to be. I know now though I was wrong, a little fear is good and now a days kids fear nothing. Prayers for all those who have lost thier loved ones may God walk with you,

You are one of the people that i'm talking about. Nothing Positive to say about anyone. Weather people are on drugs or not, the ones that lose their lives aparently needed help it's just no one knew.

YOU are NO BETTER than anyone else on the face of this earth. People like you are poor examples to Caring Pasionate people. Apparently you have no heart.

Have to agree with uhuh - what does a town have anything to do with they way people are living? These individuals would be the same in Indianapolis, Muncie, Dayton, or Oxford. The only way a different location would make a difference is that it put physical space between them and the group they associate with.

I am familiar with some of the names in the paper who have been arrested. They are not fed up with their lives enough to change. Drug abusers will only stop when they want to. It isn't a matter of giving a helping hand; it is a matter of the heart and soul. Many had jobs, made good money yet still did drugs. Some have even found their own loved one dead yet continue to do drugs. What would you suggest Connersville to do?

I agree with uhuh and Blond Moment. Why is THIS TOWN responsible for anyone that decides to take their own life. What can THIS TOWN do to deter these people from taking their own lives? There are over 15,000 people in Connersville and Fayette County. I'm sure that the ratio of people that decide to take their own lives -vs- those that decide to go on living, out of 15,000 people is less than 1 percent. Yes, a suicide makes the news, it makes us all go DAMN, why did they do it? But it is not THIS TOWN's fault. And there is NOTHING, nothing that THIS TOWN can do ahead of time to deter people from deciding to take their own lives. Believe it or not, Connersville is not the only small town that has people taking their own lives, it happens all over America, all over the world every single day, every single hour, etc. It is tragic for sure, but there is nobody to blame but the person who makes that decision. These are adults that choose to take their own lives, not children. Educated, smart adult people that make that decision for themselves. THIS TOWN is not to blame, THIS TOWN is not responsible for those adults that decide to end their lives in their own way, in their own time.

The reason why Sheryl kill herself is because she was going to be charge killing Dustin Gaddis. Top it all off she wrote a note to Dustin mother telling her the she was the one who killed him with two other guys help her do it, because he didn't want to leave the state with her. Dustin wanted to be with his kids.

In a town comprised of about 13,000 you are concerned we have some sort of epidemic of suicides due to a list of 8 deaths, which you claim took place over the past few years? Hello! Do you think that people caring changes the mind of the suicidal person? You're nuts.

you know..........its really not to thoughtful or respectful to the deceased or to the families left behind .for you to come and put this info on internet.......why would you do it?It doesnt matter if its the truth or not..........the ones left behind are grieving........why would you put more pain on them by airing this on the internet?
