So so sad that the lady has know place to be. Drove by there yesturday and someone was stopped and it looked like they were giving her food and something to drink. If she is making a statement, it is very easy to see. But if she is homeless, my god, someone should contact a realitive or local church to help her. The daily heat is very bad and a severe storm would be terrible. My dog has a house, food, water, and shade outside!!!!!

Numerous people have offered to help. Even the Clark County Sherrif's office posted on Facebook about offering to help. She doesn't want any help at all. She choosing to live this way, so there isn't much anyone can do.

I heard her name is Mary Graham from Martinville. Her family has kicked her out. She has refused all help. She has been offered food and shelter, but she prefers to live this way.I am not worried about the summer or fall, but what will she do in the winter months. I don't think she will be able to find sub zero clothing in Marshall.

This is really kind of sad in this day and age that anyone would have to live this way. The least we can do is pray for her!

From what I've seen and heard, it would appear that she's either mentally ill or has some sort of dementia. The authorities can only step in if she's a danger to self or to others. Hopefully, when the weather gets colder someone will have the guts to make that call and get her into a treatment facility.

She is concerned with the wrongs of the world and the seeming no care of society
This is her way of '" Evangelizing>
To tell her story for "free" and living in poverty as Evangelist of old rather than modern day Evangelist who get paid for their message.
Among those concerns are the genetically modified plant food that is a wrong path and therefore she has chosen a spot between bean and cornfields for a campsite.
Other issues is the killing of babies and those in hospitals with mutations beyond belief from radiation, dope, and other causes.
The list is long and perhaps her way is not the best for her own welfare etc but she is doing the best she knows how to try to change the corner of the world she lives
The question is are the rest of us doing our best to help change the wrongs around us by standing on the truth of the scriptures?
We cannot change somethings but God's word states that if His people will change their ways and follow God's ways that then will he heal our land & etc.
Prayer always helps.

This sort of circumstance exists all over our nation. No one thinks about it when you don't have to look at it everyday. Welcome to America people, land of the free, home of the homeless.

Yes, all the while with a cigarette hanging out of her mouth.

I dont feel sorry for her anymore- she is old enouph to make her choice(maybe not smart enough)there are places you could get help from- besides anyone who strolls down the side of the road & gives you the bird for no apparent reason has to have a mental problem- where the hells her family?

She has a daughter that still lives around here...I just saw her at pizza hut the other night. Temptress Graham is her name...last name probably different now she used to work at Casey's and went by Tam. But from what I hear Mary wants no help....so be it I guess!

I don't think she asked you to feel sorry for her and I think she is telling you what to do with that middle finger. Just leave her alone!

I don't want to take her home, and she does not want to go with me. Just leave her alone and mind your own business. If you don't like it quit looking. She is not hurting you or anyone else. People make such big deals and stick their noses were their not needed. Get a hobby leave her alone.
