I tell ya I have lived here all my life and I have never ever seen it this bad before. You know they ought to change christmas to july and the fireworks in the cold winter.Every year around this time the economy goes to hell people lose jobs and our local and state goverment wants more from us.I lost my job a week ago to a bull**** excuse and I'm sick of it here.I have a lifetime of friends here but I cant take the backstabbing lie to your face attitude from some of you people.Just like the job I had at Estes express used to be my bestfriend of 30yrs lie his ass off made sum sh** up to make himself look better than me and got me fired a year ago finacially we have not recovered from that and he and I know longer are friends. Sick of it here its either I start kicking butt around here and go to jail or take my family and relocate..So I'm taking my family to new mexico and getting out of the bull here. This town sucks most of the people here sucks and our goverment sucks. If your not an illegal immagrant or an poor blck person in this town then you have no rites and no goverment assistance. So screw Dick Moore and Screw Mitch Danniels...And screw Elkhart Indiana..I will miss my friends and I love you all but someone and I mean someone is going to get hurt and it wont be me..

What gripes me about Elkhart is:
• We don't need trees on main street they will have to be cut down eventually.
• The post office needs to be moved.
• The new flower boxes on each corner is not nessary,they are getting destroyed by motorists.
• The new underpass was built in the wrong place.
• Most downtown businesses don't have enough parking.
• State Road 19 should go all the way to Bristol street via Main St. Traffic backs up at Cass. and Bristol Streets and at Beardsly and Cassopolis streets.
• Now that it is Winter, drivers are told to slow down. How about the snow plow drivers slow down? They push traffic as well as they do snow.

All hope isn't lost for downtown Elkhart; the Mission moved off of Main Street.

Another thning that erks me is that we have an idiot for a mayor an idiot for a chief of police a idiot for asst.chief of police.Our mayor passed the noise ordinance agsinst motorcycles saying they are to loud well fuck me I guess with my bike I should just put silenser's on for pipe's so when I'm riding down the road some non hearing deaf fuck can pull out in front of me so I will hit them and get hurt..Does that make sense..Not to me it doesnt. Then our county encourages these illegal immagrants to come here for work steal our jobs screws up our pay and bebnifits and we are let out in the cold..With no assistance from our local or state government..RV workers are prime examples.Now why dont our federal government just give the people a bail out package who are legal citizens and fuck the C.E.O'S OF America its time to help us out..We need to stand up for what is ours and what we deserve.We are the back bone of this county and this country..We deserve better..Get rid of all the illegal people in this country and take back whats ours..

If you are thinking about relocating to Elkhart don't and if your thinking of leaving Elkhart you should. You should leave as fast as possible on the first thing smoking. Go anywhere but here. The city is a shadow of it's formal self and it's stuck in the 1800's.
They have elected a mayor that's old enough to be my grandfather and I'm 43yrs old. They have a prosecutor that's on some ego trip that's prosecuting anything that moves or even looks suspicious. I think he's borderline Charles Bronson/Clint Eastwood in a small mayberry town that's hanging on for it's dear life. I'd like to correct that last statment, let's sum him up to a Barney Phife on steroids.
My final comment is the schools aren't that great, unemployment is high as hell and there is absolutely nothing and I mean nothing to do. The fines and fees in the legal system are insane. For the smallest offense your going to pay a stupendous amount of money. What doe's all of this spell LOSER!!!!!! Don't come here and if you live here on your first opportunity do not hesitate, LEAVE OR YOU WILL REGRET IT FOR THE REST OF YOUR LIFE!!!!!
I'M LEAVING RIGHT NOW!!! GOD BLESS YOU ALL!

I'm sorry to hear about all of the problems in Elkhart. My family moved from there when I was 11 years old in 1963. I guess I'm glad we moved from there since it is so bad there now. I lived on Gage Avenue and I used to ice skate on the St. Joseph River in the winter. I remember some pond in a park or something we used to ice skate on too. I have great childhood memories of Elkhart.

elkhart county blows big monkey chunks. i have traveled all over this glorious country and this is one of the arm pits. elkhart's a very bad place to be unless you are an illegal, then i see it as a haven. the county is trying to pump up it's image but there is no way it will happen. This area suffers from repression from the police and corporation. the drop out rate, unempolyment, prostitution, drug manufacturing and use, and crappy roads are very high compared to the rest of the nation and will probably be getting worse. but, if you like liquor stores and churches on every other block then go to this pergatory. peace

You are correct. This town sucks and is run by more arrogant bastards then I have ever seen. I own a successful business, employee a few people and make a good living, but am I allowed to just work hard and pay taxes? HELL NO! That's not enough! More taxes, picking on the poor people, a repressive almost Nazi like police force and a political environment, including the now liberal newspaper, "The Elkhart Truth" that dictates all you can do. If you're not part of the "collective" you don't belong. Trip on a crack on a CITY sidewalk and you're going to jail. Sip a beer on your porch after midnight, you're going to jail. You can drink all day at a local bar on Sunday and drive home, but you can't get carryout on Sunday! For Gods sake, it's freaking' Sunday, we can't let people buy beer on Sunday! Indiana sucks with the stupid "blue laws" but Elkhart sucks more. I'm 56 years old and NEVER witnessed this amount of empty buildings and out of work people, all making $350.00 a month on unemployment. And that isn't FREE! I pay my bill every month for a person that QUIT but was found to not be able to work in our environment. She sat behind a freakin' desk all day answering the phone. How many monkeys does that take? One I think and they work for bananas! I'm selling my business or just closing it down. I like Mitch Daniels but he has to be MORE hands on, that is, beat the crap out of local Mayors. Most are just ignorant politicians, old, eating for free and driving a car I pay for. RV's be damned! Electric motor cars is the NEW Elkhart County endeavor. I've seen this type of Charlatan in Elkhart before. They get government money, they take the money and then they close their business. That's the Elkhart County MODEL! My final words are "you've all been snickered into thinking "poor Elkhart, they are the heart of the nation". Not really, It's happened before, again, and again and again. I've seen it and lived it! Nixon, Carter and now Obama. It doesn't change it just gets worse. We get what we deserve. We voted for them, now they own us. Get used to it or don't be so complacent with your voting power!

I got one for you. I'm driving down Bristol Street the other day and I noticed someone has been pulled over for speeding, whatever... funny thing was, the Police cruiser was a goddamn 2009 Mustang GT... WITH RIMS! Unbelievable waste of money!!! Wouldn't most of us still pull over if the officer had been driving a Chevy Impala, Chrylser Sebring or some other reasonable car? For a County so hard hit by the economy (previously #1 in the USA), the offcials in charge sure know how to live within their means don't they?

One of the great things about the internet is that you never know when some nut job like you will slip away from his case worker and begin ranting.
