some of you stated in previous blogs about volunteering. Where? Rescue Squad? Fire Dept.? Madeline House?Schools? Each one of those org.'s are controlled by "Good Old Boys", as is everything else in Nottoway. Have you asked the question why does Crewe not have a grocery store? There are many answers to this question.Food store chains have come to Crewe and made assessments of the area, it's government and the people.Private individuals were prepared to build a store, or open one in the existing old stores. If the "power that is" would speak and act in honesty, we would have a grocery store by now.
But for some strange reason they can never look you in the eye. There are some people who do and are willing to do more, but are cut off at any workable suggestions. There are road blocks put in the way at every possible solution. They reject help from any outside endity. Citizens are dismissed at a blink of an eye if they are not in the "inner circle" even if they do have solutions to problems.The reason no one goes to Council meetings is because there are never any solutions and the same subject is on the tabel month after month. Meetings are held in private(against law) to discuss what will be said and done at upcoming meetings. If you don't play it their way, you better be prepared to look in from the outside only and suffer the consquences along with the rest of the citizens. People have given up to make something out of this town of Crewe, simply because they are tired of their opinion not being respected or heard with open minds.I understand that the majority of Council in Crewe is not seeking re-election, thats what they are saying now anyway and even if they are, throw in your "hat" no matter what the outcome at the very least the message will have been send that people are tired of the way things are going. Yes, You Do Can Be the Change.

Crewe does not have a grocery store because the one that was built on the lot is too expensive to repair. How are things on the town council in Burkeville?

No, Crewe does not have a grocery store because the town isn't economically viable enough to support one. It likely never will have one either.

The fasmart shootings a good example why it shouldnt be a culture shock. Again I will leave it at that. Three fourths of law enforcement calls are after a vfw blackstone incident, Paris inn incident or Todds. People just can not behave like they used too.

The big picture here is that the people living here don't like one word and that would be "change". Older citizens like to think that Crewe is still a booming town with multiple stores and it's the pre World War II era. As we all know, there is not a Grocer in Crewe and I honestly don't think there ever will be one. Who can live like that with no Grocery store, stores or entertainment for that matter?

nottoway county won't change because its all in who you know not what you know. you have cops covering up and standing for what they want and not what is right and every thing that happens here is just that covered up and swept under the carpet there. The only thing that gets heard is what the uppers want you to hear while the truth is being covered at every end. So while you paint all the pictures you want of Nottoway you should know that only the ones who are in the ups are happy with it cause they can paint any picture they want while those who aren't in with the old yuppies well then you just don't matter in this county. And well if you lived here long enough you all know who is who and what is what. What is even worse you think by coming on these blogs you can still paint pretty pictures. But the truth is Nottoway is a I scratch your back you scratch my back town and there is no justice. The real truth is you need to bring the federal government in this town and straighten them all out. When the heat is on in this town they will find someone innocent to pin it on to cover thier own noses. I am sure alot of citizens in this county that has any guts would agree. Nottoway is really needing alot of changes it needs growth and it needs real leadership. Nottoway needs to allow more growth but the reason they won't is because it might raise an eyebrow to how corrupt this place really is. Instead of seeing how change would impact the whole community they only worry about those with the fattest pocket. With fort pickett around the corner imagine what an adult store or a strip club could do for business. How about a mall or a movie theater for the kids. Or maybe even the cops and start doing their jobs and stop quit looking for easy busts and take on the real crimes here. They would rather get you for faulty equipment than to find a drug dealer or murder or felon. The people in this county think titles are just that title and a paycheck. People have to learn to stand for something or just as the song says they will fall for anything.

I decided to join as guest 3 because 2 just barely touched the truth about The whole county of Nottaway. It didn't just start as a corrupt county it goes back years! Judges caught on the stand drunk; Store owners with illegal contracts; doctors refusing to see a sick person because they can't pay. Commonwealth attorney's not doing thier jobs. Cops who know if they do stand up for the truth they'll be railroad out of town.
Years ago we had cops charged with rape; They got off. Mayers who had their crimes swept under the carpet. Cops who were told to resign just so they could go to another area in the county and join again. The corruptness in Nottaway is so deep you need hip boots to even walk! Not lies just plain facts. Read up on the back law books. Oh1 I forgot some those have even disappeared or doctor up to protect them not you. Commonwealth attorneys have keys to the court house so they can take care of things? Wake up fools! If you live in Nottaway you should know how it is. If not get out of dodge; you're in for a rude awakening!

It speaks to the very sad state of our country/state/county/town when citizens believe that an adult store or a strip club is good for the community.

Why would it be bad for the community?

Healthy adults like healthy adult entertainment.

You make a very strong statement for what IS wrong with Nottoway County and beyond. So sad; bet your Mother is really proud of you. Your comment is not worthy of any further discussion.

Okay kids aren't allowed in strip clubs and they are maintained so kids don't even really see what goes on in them and It would bring business to Nottoway and Jobs considering all the Military surrounding. Not just women strippers men too. Grown men an Women enjoy a good meal with a little entertainment. That wasn't all that was mentioned funny that is all that caught the eye. The mall and movie Theater didn't make no sense at all huh. Well I feel alot of crime would be done away with if there was more entertainment in the community. Lets think about a strip club just for a moment. You would have to hire security. You would have to have cooks. You would have door greeters. You would have waitresses. You would have a bar tender or two and look at all you have employed and the money the county would get from it. Lets see Now a mall the kids would have a blast and what type of employment that would bring Nottoway. It is sad when one Blackstone Girl can't see beyond her own thoughts to what an achievement it would bring. I happen to know that Many people in this little community travel all the way to richmond for this service. An Blackstone Girl you fail to mention the prison for pedifiles that are to be reabilitated here. And only people who want that type job would apply for it. So who is it hurting and how is it a shame? And really if we have kids it didn't happen by itself did it. At some point we got entertained. So now adults don't deserve a little entertainment. Wake up this is 2009 not the 1950's. Thanks but lets be real. I happen to know I have seen in the papers that Nottoway wants people to spend money in Nottoway well give them something to spend it on. Bring in the jobs and the money and the town will grow. It is sad that this was all you seen in my first paragraph. Eighteen year old kids can go and fight a war for this country but can't have a beer or entertainment. Where is that just. So you tell me again how bad is it.

What is it in Nottoway County for the kids to do really? you tell me that other than stand on the street corner and Oh yeah how many kids really want to go to the little park behind the police department for thier first kiss? I mean or meet on the corner to see what pot they got or crack they can get? Or where can I go get my first piece? Tell me what is there in Nottoway for a kid to do from the age of 6 to 61 except eat, sleep and die. What is there here in Nottoway. Besides Wal-mart. Have you ever been a kid and lived in this town. Have you seen the complaints on these blogs about Wal-mart? Ask the kids what they think about entertainment here. They'll tell you. The biggest entertainment is to cut whole in your front pocket and run your hand down as far as you can till you find something to play with. Thats thier entertainment. How many kids are getting knocked up before age 16? You tell me what they really have to do here besides that.

Yes my mother and my mother in law are very proud of my outspoken shameless display of emotion and my opinions of what needs to be done and they support me. Perhaps if it was known 2\3 's of Nottoway would agree about what needs to be done here. And I am willing to say 99% of the kids would say give us something to do other than eat drink or do it in school. Any one with a collage degree will tell you the way to make a county grow is to give the community of voting people what they want and need. Not our electives to decide what they think is good. Most of them are so old that one foots on the banana peel and the other is right at the bucket.

To me Crewe reminds me of a warzone. Everything dead. Nothing at all around. It's pitiful. I don't see how deeper Nottoway could go into the hole.
Supposidly the Town officials are "doing things" to improve Crewe such as getting a Grocery store. I haven't seen one bit of change.
Then the idea of restaurants or fast food comes to mind. Crewe could make a killing with fast food places. It would create jobs, build up money. The space is here. You see truckers come through here so you know they would stop. If Blackstone & Amelia has a McDonald's then why doesn't Crewe? What's your thought on that?

My thought on the fast food issue is that. Well I choose not to eat out too much. I have worked fast food and I have seen people try to serve burgers that hit the floor and I would not allow that. Then while eating out I have seen people wipe thier nose and continue handling food and I have seen employees leave restrooms with out washing hands. So unless you can watch the preparations of your food then I don't suggest the eating out thing. But on the other hand of that yes If you can find restraunts that up hold sanitation that is great. I do love McDonalds food myself. Just you have to feel secure in the people preparing the food. But back to that issue not only wood fast food be Okay but how about the out back steak house or a putt putt. But I think Nottoway could build a mall look at how many people that would employ. Not only do we need something that will be creating a place to spend money but a way to bring employment here locally. When all your money is going in gas to work out of town then your shopping tends to be out of town as well. We need more factories here. We need alot of changes. Not people saying they are going to change to appease people and actually getting off thier gusts and make things happen. That means if we have to rally up and get petitions signed then maybe we can get things done.

True, you have no idea who is preparing the food you will eat when you go to any restaurant. The point is, that Crewe has the space for a lot such as a mall, restaurants, grocery stores, stores. I would think that people would get tired of going to Blackstone, Farmville or Richmond when they need something. Everywhere I have lived I have been able to get what I needed. This isn't the case in Crewe. Nottoway makes me feel as if I was in prison because you can't do anything. Then you have some people that act as if Crewe is paradise. Nottoway is a backwards as you can go. I thought it was supposed to be "moving forward" instead Crewe moves backwards.

I don't know if her mothers proud of her of not butI sure am. I would like to see the Adult stores and strip clubs come to this town. I would also like to see more for the kids in the community. Bumper cars. Something like Kings Dominion or Water Country. Or Something for entertainment.

I feel that all of you should let your friends know of this sight so that people do know that thier voice can be heard. And that their opinions do matter. And not to worry about who is watching because freedom of speech and you are allowed to have your opinion. Just be sure when you state things to be facts that they are facts and well if it is opinion let it be known you are entitled to your opinion. And at all cost try not to mention names that can get you in trouble. But maybe enough people voice their opinion on here then maybe some changes can be made.
