Yeah everything decomposes but a town like this should not. For the most part this is a nice town with nice people. All of the trash coming in from the bigger cities surrounding us is whats ruining it. The crime rate has skyrocket along with the number of minorities. I am not racist i am just stating the facts because I don't believe in coincidences.

From fed up - "The crime rate has skyrocket along with the number of minorities. I am not racist....".
Wow sure sounds racist to me. What facts are you stating? That minorities are the cause of skyrocketing crime rate? Maybe the crime rate increase is the result of the high unemployment rate or that our economy is in the tank. Naw lets just blame minorities....it's an easy way out.

So glad you pointed that out; I read that comment a few times, scratching my head and wondering if they misspelled or misplaced something, so I slapped myself so I could realize I wasn't the being the stupid, ignorant one here.

You can call me racist if you want. If you want to put blame on the economy and unemployment then let's blame our "president". Oh shit! He's a black man which brings us back to minorities.

Obama is not a president I voted for. Nor will he get my vote this time. I've met some great african americans...met some great hispanics...I've also met some real white trash. To sum this up, there are good and bad in all walks of life. Look at some of the nasty areas in Parkersburg. I'd say most of those areas are white. I am not a minority by the way. And yes I did not grow up in this area. I've traveled and lived through out the US and lived briefly overseas (military).

No it hasn't alway been this way! Someone predicted that when we put the new highway in the "darker" people will come. Ironically the darker people did come and the crime rate at tripled
