What Hoopeston needs:

1) A movie theater that doesn't smell like mildew, and that isn't used as a babysitter by the town's inconsiderate parents. ALOT of them.

2) A decent restaurant, key word:DECENT. Not one where the waitresses are rude, and they screw up your order 4 times out of 5. These places also need different owners, ones who don't think you owe them, or that you should eat there just because it's local.

3) A grocery store that doesn't charge $12 for a bag of cherries.

4) Less people that think a Skate Park is actually a good place for kids to hang out. Why don't you go to ANY other skate park in the state and tell me why that 12 year old kid is smoking a cigarette, or that 14 year old is selling dimebags of pot. If you think your town will be different then EVERY OTHER TOWN, then you are truly an idiot.

5) Citizens that can properly spell in their internet posts. You all hate on the school system, and it's very obvious that it is NOT up to par when half the population can't spell.

6) Find the source of the overwhelming sewage smell that hits you as soon as you get in town, and fix it!

7) Less drinking establishments! A LOT LESS!

8) Competent Police Officers that do their job.

9) MUCH LESS White trash!

10) Less people that blame EVERYTHING on someone else. No! The dogcatcher isn't after you!, No! The police aren't picking on you!, Yes! You are responsible for your actions. That cop gave you a ticket because you WERE speeding, not because they don't like you personally.

11) Less people that whine about the town council, then never go to council meetings or vote.

Things Hoopeston HAS

1) A sadly minority group of awesome people.

2) Beautiful homes on tree-lined streets.

3) A decent bowling alley, somewhere for KIDS to go to stay out of trouble.(not a SKATE PARK!)

4) SOME Teenagers that are great kids! They say please and thank you, hold doors, and are for the most part prove their parents did a good job.(these kids would never use a skate park, and actually behave themselves in the theater) Sadly, these kids only make up about 40%-50% of the teenage population, but that is comparably much better then surrounding towns.

5) SOME Parents that teach their children to be decent, responsible, and considerate. Sadly, once again, only 40%-50%.

Well Marko your just quite the Drama King aren't you. Your so perfect and such a piece of work yourself that you are able to fix all the problems..So why don't you go to a town meeting and suggest that the "white trash" be removed for your convenience. Hey those officers that do there job, now that would be great. Lets close all the bars then that white trash wont have anywhere to hang out. Maybe we should put up signs MARKO FOR MAYOR he has all the answers. just ask him. Hey let us no how the town meeting goes OK!

SOme one came to Danville and said the bowling alley was going to expand the dining room. Someone must be doing something right. I've ate there and the food and service was great. Wish the owner would turn down the air though it was cold.

That would sure be nice but I don't know that this little town could support a good steak house.

If you want out then go! It's that simple. Do you think the next town will be any different? I guarantee it will be the same. There is good and bad where ever you go. You just pray and make the best of it.

I wish it were that simple! I have an ill parent and once he dies then I will leave this shithole! I have lived in other places and believe me there is more sickness....and by that I mean nasty drug infected alcholic..lazy...welfare loving scumbags in this town than any 3 town put together I have lived in! They breed to teach their offspring how to sell drugs...not work...and suck the system dry!

He's right. I've been to Virginia, Pennsylvania, Kentucky, Maryland, The Carolina's...heck, even in California I've seen alot of places that make Vermilion County look like Paradise! Why do you think so many people move away..and then move back. We have alot of problems..but there are stupid people everywhere.

You have to ask yourself, Would I rather deal with stupid strangers, or the stupid people I grew up with? The answer is often the latter. The devil you know is always preferable to the one you don't.

At least here (home) I know the who the good and bad people are, I know which restaurants are clean, I know which mechanics are honest, I know which neighborhoods are decent, etc. I have family and friends that can help me move, give me a ride if my car stops running,and just generally hang out with. You have no idea how valuable that knowledge and those things are until you have to start all over.

I have lived in Hoopeston most of my life and moved away for a couple of years and I can tell you there are towns in this country that are just generally great places to live and sadly Hoopeston is not one of those that statement about being familiar with the crappy things in town is true it is nice being comfortable in knowing the good bad and ugly the statements about bad parents are true also when I was growing up as a teenager I had pretty straightforward parents and most of the times that I was getting messed up on drugs I was at a friend's house sitting in the living room with their parents I don't think many malls or restaurants or anything while being good things are going to help Hoopeston we simply need one or maybe two very large well paying factories you can't support schools and local businesses when you're making minimum wage minimum wage jobs are 4 people fresh out of high school that need time to build skills to get real jobs I'm not saying that I know how to fix this or that I have all the answers that's not my job that's the job of the people that run the town all I know is that the money is what makes the world go round and there is no money and Hoopeston
