The other day as I was driving through Latrobe past the water fountain, I was surprised at what I saw. There was a woman there, maybe mid thirties, in a bathing suit. She climbed up on the side of fountain and while kneeling on the edge, began dunking her head in the water. Yes it was hot out, and she obviously wanted to cool off. But to be in full swimming attire, and in the fountain?

Then I noticed the usual riff raff sitting around the fountain. I do not walk around Latrobe, but if I did, I would avoid that area totally! It is a very nice place in town but appears to be taken over by drug activity. I know this because of a woman that hangs out there.(Not the bathing suit one) All of her friends congregate there for one reason only, to score drugs. This woman has confirmed that's where it all takes place. She is scoring pills, methadone, and possibly heroin there. Since hearing this I have looked over at the folks that sit there daily as I drive by, possibly a bit judge mental...but yeah looks like a bunch of druggies that hang there. I probably wouldn't have noticed till I heard what goes on there.

The day I saw the woman 'fountain swimmer'...and the other usual folks...there were also two kids there jumping rope. And likely the two guys on the bench are either high, or abut to GET high. Such a shame.

Has anyone else noticed this? I know not ALL of the folks enjoying the fountain are druggies. But yes, they do congregate there.

Now this woman no longer lives across the street, but yet drives from another town to hang out there.

I would think that the Officers assigned to foot patrol in the downtown area regularly walk through the fountain area, especially since the Police Station is directly across the street, right?

Maybe the surveillance camera on the City Hall, should be lifted a little higher to capture what goes on father than the end of the sidewalk around City Hall?

And there you have it. Ligonier trailer trash commenting on the safety of downtown Latrobe. You have to love the irony.

There's a trailer park near the stadium, Chemical Zombie. You should detox, then follow the directions of your physician rather than self-medicating.

Of course, I would have no idea what your treatment plan calls for....but you thinking that I SHOULD know simply shows that your chemical imbalances are serious and should be addressed.

Your posts for the last several months have indicated a steady decline in your reasoning and comprehension. It's becoming clear that your mind is not responding well to your medication. I've told you before, our bodies are not equipped to filter so many chemicals without experiencing adverse effects.

It's very important that you get the help you need before you are forced to be institutionalized.

Please take the first step and be evaluated by a competent psychiatrist.

Oh, that's your answer?

Thank you so much. I'm so glad that you weighed in. What would I do without your (professional) evaluation.

I better run right out and do what you say.

Thanks.

I feel better now.

I thought he was talking to Chombi. Are you Chombi, too? I'm a Chombi, you're a Chombi, he's a Chombi, wouldn't you like to be a Chombi, too?

Seriously, you will feel MUCH better.

Don't think for a minute that your posts don't reveal what's going on. Poor grammar, misspellings, non sequiturs, and disconnected reasoning are all signs of a serious chemical imbalance. Wean yourself of the harsh drugs you are taking (of course under the watchful eye of a qualified clinician) and try and get some exercise and then reevaluate your need for pharmaceuticals. You just might realize that you don't need to be heavily medicated and can heal some parts of yourself by choosing a healthier lifestyle.

You go to great lengths on this board to prove how smart you can appear to be.....maybe it's time you did something really smart to improve your life.

Yes, THAT'S my answer. I know what I'm talking about.

Speaking (posting) in absolutes is another sign of an imbalance.

Of course I don't 'know it all', but the Chinese say that when a man turns 50, he is able to speak to God. Not literally, but in a sense that by 50, we all have a pretty good idea of the lay of the land.

Redneck knows what I'm talking about.

Anyone can feel better by comparing ones self to a mentally ill homeless person.

You need to have healthy people around you.

It's as good as any.

You've chosen Topix to carry your voice. If you are going to go to the trouble, why not make your best effort?

Isn't that what you're doing, by all of your pompous posturing that I'm mentally ill?
