The future is ours.... Bring back Carbondale. I was born on the West Side of Carbondale. I've lived, worked, and played here for my my entire life.
My entire family lives in and around the City. Everyone needs to wake up an realize this City was Built on hard work and good people. Who are still here. But we need a boost. I was regretfully informed that the Pioneer Days/Nights whatever committee have done away with the youth fishing derby. So now all the wonderfully misguided children of Carbondale could roam the streets, go to the skate park and smoke some grass or go to Russel park and step on a heroin needle playing catch football. And sure all you wonderful parents in this city are going to blame to police, city counsel, and of course we cant forget the MAYOR. But the truth is the problem lies with the parents and guardians not the city counsel or the police or the mayor.
Carbondale needs to get back to its roots for being a great place to live. At the dawn of the century Carbondale was one of the most technologically advanced and prosperous cities in the UNITED STATES Not just Pennsylvania, THE ENTIRE UNITED STATES

Seriously when everyone from Carbondale who tries to pass the buck on who's sending Carbondale to hell in a handbag. Folks take a long look in the mirror before pointing fingers.

How about this next time you see a crime happening call the cops, the next time you see a dollar store bag blowing around the street throw it in the garbage. And community service isn't just for Criminals and the Boy Scouts get out in YOUR / OUR Community and make a difference.

A good start would be beefed up aggressive apartment building code enforcement/inspections. Your local Gov. CAN help if they get off their keisters and recognize and address the REAL problems instead of worrying about building a car garage that the town wont be able to fill anyways.
