While shopping at Foodfair today I was approched by a man that said he was homeless and asked me for $20 for a motel room. I told him that I didn't give cash out but I would gladly get him in contact with one of the local policemen or ministers that would help him get to the salvation army where he could get a room. He didn't want this at all, said that he hadn't had much luck with the police. Does anyone know if this man is truly homeless or is it a scam. He was setting in front of Foodfair when I got there then came into the store to ask for the $20. He was wearing dark tee shirt, shorts and shoes that didn't have strings. I dont mind helping someone but I refuse to give cash.

He made alot of money yesterday and did not rent a room. You tell me what he is doing with it. One place he got 70 dollars. When u give him food he then ask for money. If he hit his wife then he deserves to be homeless..........

Dont come down on them! I tried to get him help but he didn't want it! If he really wanted help he would would have let me call Roger Russell and Roger would have saw that he got in touch with one of the pastors in town and saw that he got to the salvation army. But no, he didn't want anything to do with calling the police. The police do things other then arrest people, they are there to help also.

And think about it. He didn't ask for any spare money I had, he asked me for $20. If you are in need you would ask for anything someone had to give not a specific amount. From what I understand he was around all day. If only 10 people gave him $20 he would already have $200.

The Police was notified today about him. The Police Chief talked with him and the Chief was told that he would not be asking for money any more.

His wife threw him out Bc she works hard & was having to lock up her purse. She said he's on drugs... My dad tried helping him, now when he sees our family he harasses them for Cash! Pathetic. Especially Bc he gets a disability check

I have seen him there 2 days in a row. No big deal. He was using the phone inside today. didnt bother me. what happened to the days of help thy neighbor. Bad luck can befall anyone. for all you know he could have served your country and helped to give you the right to say, put him out!

He put himself in that situation just like 90% of the so called "homeless" in this country. If you make enough poor choice in life and don't try to change, then bad things happen to you. Eventually the decent folks in their life get fed up and say enough is enough. There are too many places to get help in this country to remain on the street. The sad thing is many that are addicted don't want to get help and get back on track because it means getting off dope and/or alchohol.

I also have the number to the veterans assoc help line. They are at Foodfair just every little bit collecting money and I make a generous donation. I also have the 800 number to the veterans homeless outreach. I'm telling you offer him help other then money and food and he refuses it!

Some people hearts have just become hardened. hes not bothering anyone. because he looks the way he does and wonders around, does that give us the right to think we are better than him and look down on him? Until hard known facts come up to dislike him, we shouldnt do so.

Ok this man made bad choices,do you know how many homeless people we would have if the state didnt give most of them housing! If you have kids you can get a few home.If you can scame the system that your disabled you get free housing,If you can find a women that has kids you can live for free!!never have to work,and have a nice home to live in but some just cant caught that free bus so we call them homeless.If you want to be mean to this man then go to these housing placesand well start on these people too
