Play it foward.

Under age, your lack of intelligence is showing.

We need someone who is passionate about or town and the actual betterment of it. Not some careless man child that likes to see his picture everyday and has no idea what he is doing.

Meg, your hate is showing and also your lack of intelligence! Virtually every prominent business person in this city is singing his praises. Hate will always be blinding!

Okay I have to ask, Frankfort times stated that several resturants have either expanded or new ones have moved in to our county due to Ivy tech coming to town, could anyone tell me who they are and where they are located. For the life of me I haven't noticed that happening .

Does anyone ever think of opening their closed minds to viewpoints of others and for once saying... I think your idea has some merit, but I don't particularly agree? A debate is just that... not smashing and bashing.

Really, who cares if you like the mayor or not? The majority elected him, it is what it is. All the complaining isn't going to change it. This forum is just a place for a bitc* session and a place for you all to fight and act ridiculous. Why doesn't someone come on here and do something for the betterment of the town? How about a fund raiser to help the human society? How about helping the homeless on the streets that walk around our town walking around all ragged pushing a shopping cart? What about volunteering at a nursing home? What about starting a support group for kids that are bullied? What can you do personally to help our little Indiana farming/ factory community? Its obvious a lot of you have some free time on your hands? Lets do something good and productive... you all love to hate. What about loving to show some love? I'm game, are you? I fed a homeless man the other day.

I personally make it my committment I am showing some love to my fellow man this week. Do you know the story of any of these homeless people? Are you only a paycheck away from being homeless? Many are? Who cares if the mayor is young, or you don't like the way he runs the city. Is your complaining going to change it? Who effectively makes a change? We do, one person at a time. One act of kindness at a time. If you don't like the way the things are run, then find someone of your liking and have them run for mayor- or better yet, run yourself since you seem to have the bright ideas! I put up a thread a while back about a random act of kindness. You want to know who responded to it? No one! You all don't care about things like that, the good stuff. The stuff that lets our humanity and our love for one another shine through. Nobody wanted to hear about the good things. The biggest posts are the ones where you all argue like the spoiled brats you are. Why are you on this planet? Do you ever think about that? Maybe it is to help and love your fellow man and not hate. Do you all ever have any kind thoughts, I mean really?

Also, I won't be surprised if someone answers this in a mean condescending manner. That's about par for the course isn't it? Who else will take a stand on this and start something good for our community. By the way, if you all hate it Frankfort so much and the way it is run- you got wheels, drive to the next Indiana town and set up camp SEE YA LATER!

THIS "observation" from an OL guy "NON-attorney" (sorry "UNO") you have no IDEA how wrong ya are.
Yhey voted in a BOY just like they did in the days of the Bible. The people of Isreal kept a sayin Give us a King Give us a King so they GAVE em a King and the KING tore the beJEANS out of Isreal! They voted this little guy in cause he MADE everybody THINK he had a NEW idea. HE had NEW plans. He was YOUNG! He was Somethin The City of Frankfort NEVER had! Little did the City KNOW that he was just a sad little Pinnochi and ALL the Players of "Old" were AND are a Pullin the strings. Children of "Frankfort" ya ASK fer a KING! Ya GOT yer KING! And NO THis ol guy Ain't no PREACHER! But I HAVE read the Good Word! Wouldn't hurt that MAYOR to READ a little more of it rather that SPEW it out like he does.
Look everyone!!!! This used to say "Nu viewer" on it and now it says Richelle M Lutz.

She is the one who told posters on here she wasn't posting as Nu viewer.

Go back and look at all the posts ranging from the 460's on.

Another lie!!!!

first and foremost this coming from someone that won't even put your real name in here. Secondly, noticed when I joined September 2013 then notice the posts, they were in June 2013. I wasn't even a member in JuneThis is another Punjab wannabe person just trying to destroy me because I'm running for council. It's okay i'm a big girl I can handle it. While I'm here however, did you love how the Mayor put the spin on the Washington Street project? When they Did Washington St., East two years ago that was phase 1 of the three phase project. Everyone knew that. Phase 2 will be from Sycamore to Hoke. Phase 3will be from Hoke to Maish Rd. This was all set in stone long before the precious mayor ever came to the office. He got on the radio and said how hard how hard they had worked to get this $2.5 million to do this work on Washington Street. Are you aware that they have to come up with about $650,000 their 20% of the project before it starts? Wonder who they will rob get that money?

I love how you change the subject everytime you are caught in ANOTHER lie!! We are not stupid! I cant say the same about you. It isnt a hard concept to understand.....you simply changed the name on your account SEPTEMBER 2013! We got that! You changed it from Nuviewer. Go ahead....we are used to it....lie, deny, lie, deny. Oh and i forgot. Change the subject!!!!
