As a community we the people need to come together and partake in some of the changes. Let start with our own yards. This town is what we make of it. All of the negative energy needs to be converted to something posetive.

Success in almost any field depends more on energy and drive than it does on intelligence. This explains why we have so many stupid leaders.

The whole country is full of ignorant, uneducated, lazy people who just pop out kids one after the other and let them run wild. The druggies have produced a whole generation of idiots. I can't believe how stupid people are. We just see close up all the white trash in Lewisburg. They are every place!7541

This is the saddest thing I have seen in a long time. Where is the love for our town, the pride?

We elected our leaders. We voted them in and we can vote them out.

As far as how yards and neighborhoods look, call the codes office and turn it in, if it's that bad. Or maybe stop and ask if they need help cleaning it up (some may be unable to keep their yard clean without help). Organize a neighborhood clean-up.

Call the police if you see someone selling drugs, hanging out in gangs, buying alcohol for kids, etc.

In other words, if you just keep sitting around LOOKING at it, it ain't going to change. As Friend would say, "Just my opinion".

Just my opinion

Lewisburg's out ward appearance is not the Problem

Lots of people drive through Lewisburg and see a nice sleepy Small Town

Lewisburg's Main Problem is the Heart of the Town

What runs your body is your Heart

Well the same way with a Town

Leadership is a Town's "Heart"

Without good Heart's among The Leadership

You have a God Forsaken Town

A good Heart is shown
By caring about all the citizens of the Town
In Lowering Taxes for all
And Open Government
Leaving the town something Besides Debt

Town Pride
Would be
Debt Free
If you ask me

You really can't blame Eddie for all the problems in Lewisburg. People here are just trashy and uneducated. Even most of the educated ones are trashy and have no morals. Ediie could't have done it all by himself.

Wow, I have 3 nuts, 2 clueless, and 2 disagrees. Is that because it's easier to sit and whine than to do something constructive, I guess it is. I addressed what seems to be the key points: elected officials, ugly yards and homes, drugs and gangs. Do you have better ideas? If so, let's hear them. If not, be content to sit on your butts and let Lewisburg rot. After all, you went to all the trouble of getting on here and whining. Why didn't someone else go fix it for you?!?

Just my opinion
In a Nut shell

Nut I may be.
Some like nuts Some Donít

elected officials, ugly yards and homes, drugs and gangs

Well lets see
If I can address all 4

Elected officials = Crooked Deals
ugly yards = Vacant lot on the Square
drugs = They say, easy to see if you look
Gangs = that is easy The Mayor and his Gang

I can stand it if the rest can
I sure hope this is constructive
Because I don't sit and write Day and Night to be Destructive
I call it constructive criticism
I just hope someone will pick up on a point and use it to make
Some small part of the world Better
I do it in Fun
Not to hurt any one

But as long as the establishment, donít want to hear what people say behind their backs
How can they ever change?
I have said it to some's face and they still deny, and say they have not heard a thing
About the way they run the Town
To be sure
The Town will never change till 3 of the City Council want to Hear, Listen, Look and comprehend
More than and hour are two a month at a council meeting
And work to gather to Change Things
5# people on the City council should over see and run the Town
3# have the power to change things
If they work together
Only 3
Quinn has tried that is for sure I give her credit.
Lewisburg has got problems but till 3# see that and are willing to hear then it will be the same
Till they resign or come election Time
And Constructive People run for office
Debt and high taxes Wheeling and Dealing Deals
Will destroy any Town and it will never grow
The Mayor has no Town prides are he would build a building in that whole in the wall on the square
Never have hired the voted Out County Mayor and appointed vote out Industrial Board member
How stupid can a person be, when the voters vote them out to put them back in.
If the voters reject them they want them out of office.
Also the appointment time to these boards is too long.
2yrs, would be long enough
Get new ideas allow more participation

The only gang I see is the Mayor and His Gang

Today, I took my kids and my parents to this neat place almost in Monteagle. There is a natural rock bridge there that you can walk across and look down at woods and a cave. It's neat, and you should go there, but that is not my point.

<br>
First, I went to my parent's house in Pulaski. I drove through 5 city squares today. Lynville, Pulaski, Fayetteville (sp?) Cowan, and . In Pulaski we drove around the area around the college, and all of the houses were nice, and the trees were nice... and on the square there seemed to be things to do. We stopped in Cowan and the kids played on the train there, and it was a really nice town. I had read this post this morning, so every time we went through a pretty little town, this phrase kept coming back into my mind. "Why is Lewisburg such a god forsaken dump?" My father has a pretty good job in Lewisburg, so I asked him. I said "There are businesses and industries in Lewisburg. Why don't they have as much money as Pulaski or Lynville?" He said "They do. They're not spending wisely."
<br>

Well hey! That's MY tax money they're not spending wisely, and I don't agree with that. Pulaski joined a program called "Tree City USA." I'm not sure how the program works, but it is making Pulaski prettier.

<br>
My husband says the problem with the buildings in Lewisburg is that they're just utilitarian, and nobody cares what they look like. I care...

I care, too. I am waiting to see what the new owners of the building that just sold on the square do with it. The paper mentioned maybe a Starbucks, or a cafe there. It's sad that the building only brought what it did, but hopefully they can use what they didn't spend on buying it to rebuild. I'd love to see a new building there that would fit in with the rest of the square, maybe a cafe, with some tables outside, and Wi-Fi.

What difference does it make what the building looks like or what businesses they have? People in this town won't go there! A business has no chance because the poeple of this town won't shop anywhere here but Wal Mart.

i heard it was in poor condition and may need to be torn down or at least seriously renovated. it is a shame that lewisburg has let its square area degenerate like this while they have built unnecessary industrial park .
Ummmm

People live here. That's what difference it makes. I have to leave Lewisburg often because it makes me feel poverty stricken and hopeless, and I have to go other places to remember it's just Lewisburg, and the country is not really falling apart.(News notwithstanding.)

There are Wal Marts in every town, and most towns don't look as run down and ghetto as Lewisburg.

I don't like Wal Mart either, and have boycotted it mostly in favor of farmers markets and such, but this is not the anti Wal Mart agenda thread. This is the GET OFF YOUR BUTTS AND MAKE THIS TOWN PRESENTABLE thread.

People here care more about who they are seen with. It is more important than what they do. Inpact your community and make the change.

Not surprised at all you would be against Lewisburg. Why do you even post here? You hate it so much, you moved.
