Was in town today and decided to visit some shops in the depressed Downtown area of Moberly. Whats up with the cheap looking whiskey barrels? I guess they are planning on using them for some type of beautification plan in the Spring. They are working out great as trash containers as that is what they are being used for. Also they are going to be a fantastic trip hazard. Just what Moberly needs.....more lawsuits. And come on!!! Do they really expect to plant flowers in those things and they won't be pulled up the first week?

Due to family illness, we plan on moving back. The city isn't going to like this old man. I have one already calling me an idiot. They're going to find out what an Idiot with money is all about. I'll be damned if my family and friends are going to come visit us in such a corrupt place!!

Hope what u speak is true. there are many educated peopkr in this town with out the financial ability to make a change. Many people that are honest and have morals and integrity live paycheck to paycheck and cannot make a difference in this corupt town.

The problem is witchcraft and has nothing to do with money. Until that town gets a paper that exposes the little witches flying around, nothing will change. All those little organizations claiming to do good, do just the opposite. Altrusa is nothing less than witches around a cauldron, and those shitn Riley women keep it stirred! Those political organizations do the same godam thing! No one gives a dam about benefiting society, its all about control. Democrats and Republicans alike! Witchcraft and Rileys! Makes me sick!

Very true but those whom live paycheck to paycheck are perhaps a bit timid to make to big of waves

The problem with this town is the ill run government that runs it. As far as paycheck to paycheck is that your Wal-Mart refuses to pay a living wage to most that work there. There has been a long standing few that call the shots that what goes on around here and nobody can or will stand up to these pricks and say anything. The people of this berg need to get involved that means getting off the couch and going to city counsel meetings. As long as the people of this town stop being lazy and complacent nothing will ever change.

One more thing this depressed downtown that has been brought up, the reason for the shape is in the owners of the buildings are to greedy to update and general repair. These that have them just want the rent money and that is all they want,they don't care if the building is falling down just give me my rent for this death trap. That is an issue around this town with rentals not going to spend a dime to make it a good place to live no just make sure that HUD or NECAC pays the rent on this no more than tenements. Take a good look around you and put yourself in the frame of mind that you don't live here and decide for yourself, you sure as hell wouldn't move to this hell hole.

Go down the road south, to the beautiful metropolis of Higbee, where you can purchase a home for under 50K, send your kids to one of the 12 finest elementary schools in the county and associate yourself with some of the nicest GED holders this side of West Virginia.

I won't agree with bashing our area, but I will stand up against the corrupt nature by which things are done. Poor people just need a boost of pride. My family didn't have money, but we had pride in what we had. I began having problems when the assholes took baseball out of the park. I do believe they're playing a few games back at John Groeber where I and many others played. I read on Facebook where the "Y" is now having problems. There were plenty of places that already tried this and what happened? A few of the same assholes took this over, too. People need to get sick and tired of this crap and vote them all out! They also need to stand up to the pricks, even if it means physically removing them!!!! This old boy has seen all the pats on the back he can take!

In addition to landlords that won't make needed repairs there are a couple of the other "business owners" downtown that will try to run any new business out if they don't approve of them, what they look like or what they sell. What's up with that? Must be part of the Welcome To Downtown Moberly group.

Most of the buildings downtown are owned by the same guy and he doesn't even live in the county.

Its my opinion the downtown business owners dont want to do the work or have anything to do with someone trying to do something. they were argued over the crusing this past summer to. Anytime somebody has a n idea they turn there nose. peope on welfare can go to walmt and get it there. Its my opnion the downtown gets what they deserve.

Okay, so let's give the Mainstreet org an "A" for effort and a C- for implementation. The barrel idea is pretty bad. Maybe they will look better in the spring with flowers!

you have it right Ben, the downtown merchants for the majority act like they could care less if you shop there or not, they give no service, and just don't make it very friendly experience to go there.

Actually, that is not true. Booneville is cute as a button. Fulton..nice too. Mexico, very lovely. I can go to all three of these town and spend the day, eat, shop ..etc. Oh, and Hannibal...great shops/resturants etc.

Moberly is comparable to either of these towns of the same size, income & demographics. BUT cannot compare when it comes to services offered, commerce or leadership.

Just to put things into perspective.

Moberly should be doing much better...don't even mean it MEAN...just true.
