~$4,000,000 courthouse that most of us will never have a reason to enter? I thought I might at least get to enjoy a new courthouse once a year when I paid the taxes.

Our totally F'd water company. Theres at least 20 good jobs being held by prisoners at the moment. Cheatham screwed us out of Frankforts millions they wanted to hand us for a new one, he'll probably screw up the Federal grant too. Gotta love that sign out there by the bridge. Boil Water Advisories forever, yay! "Yes honey, there really are places where you dont have to boil the water."

WTF is happening with the hospital? Are we getting one or not.

Stop spending money on the square, the museum, the historic bar/hotel/restraunt and all the endless crap that anyone thinks is going to put this town on the map. This is not Bardstown and cutesy downtown areas and historic stuff isnt going to win us jobs like it did for them 20 years ago. Solid utilities, roads and tax favors for said companies will win the jobs. None of which Cheatham is interested in.

Strangling new businiess inside city limits. You'd think their greedy hands would want that tax revenue. You know, I bet WalMart pays an arm and a leg in property taxes, payroll taxes and all kinds of other taxes on that store in Cville. City Hall obviously thinks the economy is fine because Five Star got remodeled.

And for Petes sakes, can all businesses in Green County manage to stay open during posted hours for at least a month straight, I doubt it. Library closes early at random, so does the water company, and the kids at Subway shut it down when they feel like it, o, dont forget the cable company either.

Ugh, ok, my rant is over.

when I saw our town featured on T.V., I thought how proud of the way our town was portrayed in the media. The town looked very clean and unique. the landscape was perfect, the square was very inviting. I like many things about Greensburg, the most is the friendly people. I know we don't have a Wal-Mart, but we have a good road to the one nearest to us. I feel that the powers that be do a good job and provide us with many extras. I do not know why people are bitter about everything. I just am thankful that I do not live in Chicago or another big metropolitan area.

It's all a facade. They would have done just as well to prop up 20 foot high walls and paint pretty pictures and store fronts on them. Pull one block off of Main Street in any direction and notice that the pavement is crumbling and full of potholes, fire hydrants are left to run because the system is contaminated, the backside of most of the "pretty scenery" is full of broken windows and crumbling bricks. Media can portray anything they want, they are professionals at it, of course they were only going to take the good angles. If they wanted to do a story on the impact of Meth on Kentuckians, bet your behind they wouldnt show the square. Well, they probably would, then they would say "And just 150 feet away from beautiful downtown, we found a Meth lab in this abandoned apartment."

As for major metro areas, crime is a numbers game, we have the same percentage of it when compared to larger areas. Living in Chicago would not mean you have greater chances of being robbed yourself, it just means you have greater chances of seeing it happen near you. If Greensburgs population doubled overnight, so would the instances of drug crime, theft, and violence. We have Meth everywhere, on top of an age old Marijauna and Crack problem, as well as an increasing number of local residential robberies. And dont even get me started on the prescription drug problem, did you know that Green county was mentioned in a prescription drug documentary recently? Not likely.

But all this will work itself out eventually, I notice that a few capitalising individuals are building their businesses outside city limits. The rich are going to get richer, if Cheatham wants to lose out on the property and payroll tax revenue just so he can keep this town "old-timey", thats his problem, but we shouldnt have to be stuck in the 20th century while the world moves through the 21st.

At least one thing is OK though, I'll applaud our school system. Fine facilities and ample staff with modern equipment. Hoepfully the better educated youth that will come in future generations will grow up to be the better politicians we need in this town, instead of this tired old "Good-Ole-Boy" system we have.

I think we ought to support our local busineses but when you try and they either don't have what you want or it is 3 times higher or you get lousy service, after a few times, you just say "forget it" and drive on through as most people do. I stopped at IGA today and the two lines were half way back through the store. It must have been the first day for both of the cashiers open. They screwed up my debit card and I had to pay extra in cash and then they just left each bag of groceries hanging on the circle and started on the next order. It is left up to the customer to try and sort through the bags. I don't what what would have happened if I had asked for help carrying out the bags. There was no one helping anyone do anything. Compare this to Kroger and Walmart and you will NEVER go back to IGA again. When the new Super Dollar Store comes in, it may be the end of IGA! But they keep saying, Shop in Greensburg!

You all bitch so much about the Mayor why don't you all get off your rumps and vote against him and try to put him out.
In Hodgenville ave there are so mant big pot holes that have been there for two years now, The city looks like a jungle with all the bushed grown up. The street going to the cemetery ishorible, and the street in the cemetery is so rough you can't hardly get through the cemetery.
In the ditches on hodgenville out to Happyville Road are full of brushand when it rains they wash out of the ditched, Why dont they take a truck and some of the prisoners and get some of these messes clean-up instead of putting it all on Main Street.
Instead of applying for grants for all of the historical thing why dont we apply foer a grant to build a new road comming in to Greensburg so that maybe we can get some industry here.
The new Dollar Market migh make the prices in Greensburg come down, at I.G.A. you cant get waited on never anyone at check out you have to ash them to wait on you,They are always in a huddle by the time clock.

I have never been in the new court house. I only go into IGA to pick up few things but it's usually nobody there. I guess time of day. I never go downtown Greensburg. As far as the hospital I don't know why we have one. Campbellsville only 15-20 minutes away. As far as police department I don't know why the police department can't merge with campbellsville save money. Campbellsville could patrol this area. Small retail stores can't compete with Wal-Mart etc. I think the mayor is doing a good job. We don't need any additional business in this area. As somebody mention crime rate would go up. I compare Greensburg to Hodgenville. Hodgenville nice little town. Etown only 15 mins away. The same as Greensburg and Campbellsville. The mayor cut his salary. No body wants to run for that office anymore. People here are like they always been. They run doctors off. They were going build detention center here and the people opposed it. I think this is nice little town and more money should be spent like on the water and sewer and roads should be repaired. Young people some of them goes on to college but find more attractive jobs else where. The ones left behind well are on drugs. Somebody made the statement about prescription drugs, Kentucky has highest rate of prescription drug abuse. Kids these days are brought up in an enviorment where their parents are drug addicts. They know nothing else. As far as drugs and drug deals you may do it 100 or more times before you get caught. There is not enough man power. Jail becomes a revolving door for most.
So what

If we want C'ville police to patrol G'burg, then we'd have to merge our cities and counties. I can tell ya right now; that just ain't gonna happen.

Other than that; I completely agree.

Well, Cheatham doesn't have the best interest of Greensburg in his sites and never has. I voted against him, and Obama, but it didn't get me anywhere. I also did not vote for Bill Moore. He had so many promises for Greensburg a person knew he was full of crap. He voted for the hike in the water bill just as the others did...no it didn't go thru but it's only cuz Cheatham realized half the ppl in Greensburg would have their water shut off. Moore also promised speed bumps on McCullum Ave...LOL...yea right..he breaks the speed limit everytime he gets 10 feet from his driveway. The city council are as much to blame as Cheatham...we are doomed. Raising taxes on the businesses here helps too. The square is beautiful..who gives a damn? Come on ppl...band together and lets get new ppl in office.
