when i grew up in town there were so many more kids hanging out and there was stuff to do....i moved in high school because my mother was not from the area and hated the small town stuff and there was nothing to do for her so we moved back to pittsburgh this was years ago but still i went to college at lock haven and i would stop by and see old friends in town and everyone moved away to other cities or even close areas like state college or altoona,,,my little cousin still lives here and tells me how it is and it makes me sad..he says there are no parties kids don't hang out downtown nothing.....the class sizes have gone down i saw looking threw his year book....i never hunted or fished or camped out but neither did most my friends i chilled with the only time we went in the woods was for parties and we still had fun and hung out in town but now i noticed that everyone that i guess wasn't into all that has completely left....i love pburg but i feel like now a days with how the media is and stuff like that most people want to be in bigger areas more of an urban feel,,, the woods stuff is dying which i never hated on i just wasn't into it everyone has there choice,,,but in college most the philipsburg kids that went into the urban stuff went home every weekend didn't really get out there...all the people from bigger areas laugh at them for how they dress and id feel bad because they have no idea about how men dress,,, basketball shoes nike addias puma Polo true religion jeans they don't even no what that i....and not the nike stuff they sell at the state college mall the stuff they sell in harrisburg philly pittsburgh williamsport those areas.....people from state college and altoona make fun of town because how hick it is even tyrone when i was in high school wore hillbilly outfits to make fun of us they said ya I'm from philipsburg and the kid said what do you fuck your cousin and join the kkk and hunt everyday i tried taking them to parties but they just werent like everyone else there dressed in cameo and the other kids were wearing the new designer outfits they couldn't talk to the girls from the city nothing very closed minded couldn't relate with music movies anything but at the same time there were kids from philipsburg who fit right in and talked dressed just like the kids from bigger areas and they tell me they are never moving back bc people from town talk shit and say they act black just because they have more of an urban feel to there look and last i checked that has nothing to do with color,,,,in all cities i have been to white black hispanic people all dress the same they live next door to each other ....all I'm saying is i thinks its sad that the kids that are not into the woods stuff people say well move away and thats what is happening and people from small town all over are dressing like that its not a city thing anymore...and once they grown up they move away and never come back thats why in the last 20 years hundreds of people have left business can't open around here unless its a car store or hunting place but sorry to say for the people that are into that,,that is dying all over,,the disney channel kids are rapping there abc's and there numbers or age right songs talking about sports and girls but with rap and the urban feel

my cousin is dating a black girl in altoona and his friend is dating a black guy in state college and they are embarrassed to bring them to town bc how people look and stare people need to realize this is 2013 nothing wrong with a small town look at williamsport its a small area and kids there dress urban and hang with black kids and still love there outdoor life hunt fish all that...people in town think if your from a small place you have no right to dress act like that and thats not right at all people from different backgrounds become friends for life everyday

we should be proud to be from philipsburg but most kids hate to even admit they are from there, they tell people there from state college so it doesn't looks bad and thats so wrong....the outdoors stuff is great its part of are nation and culture but sad to say if you don't at least have a little urban stuff in you and you go to a bigger college its harder to make friends because not everyone is into that,,,,dub step rap music those cultures are how kids in this generation into you never go to a party at lock haven or penn state and hear country music or kids wear hunting clothes or talking about hunting all the kids coming from big cities think its crazy how close minded people are and they are completely right 73 percent of our country lives in a urban area so thats what those kids are into central pa is not a straight redneck area there are small cities all around it
just sayin

So just because you think these things about Philipsburg, doesn't mean everyone. Just because you left, doesn't mean you know what everyone is thinking. It's YOUR opinion, not everyone elses.
Talk about closed minded, you are the picture of closed minded.

It's a boring dead end town. There is a lack of entertainment. There are no opportunities to advance in the world. Philipsburg is a place you go when your life is ending... not when it's just beginning. They should make the whole place a redkneck retirement home.
so what

Boring and dead end? Lack of entertainment?
Where do you watch movies? Do you leave town or buy at redbox or download movies. That's why the Rowland is in danger of closing.
Dead end? it's because everyone thinks that the food is better out of town. They go elsewhere. Everyone goes to another town to buy things, they don't stick with local businesses.
Everyone has become too absorbed in their electronics. They stay in their homes and whine about the lack of stuff in town. get out there and see the town.
Stop waiting for things to be dropped into your lap.

The food is better every where else. The only place to eat is the American diner and it is never open.
yeah yeah

Most of the people in this town who whine like you do are losers who are in their 40's who live with their parents or girlfriends. They don't have jobs or cars but want others to pity them. They breed and let the government and churches take care of their children. They want others to think they are wonderful but don't want to put the work in to actually fulfill the part.They want it dropped into their lap. I'm glad you moved. Breed somewhere else.

So you're saying the food at Hogs Galore isn't any good? The Retro?

You're just one of those old pricks who is afraid of trying anything else.

So was the food being better elsewhere about the taste or being good for you? The America Diner is for people concerned about their health?

Your original comment seems to be pretty baseless now.

Wow, Negitive Nancy's !
I loved the comments and the innuendos about redneck's and uneducated people.
Ahhhhh, after looking at your grammar and spelling.....I wouldn't be so Judgemental ! LOL
My Gawd , State College and Altoona are less than 30 mins away.(State College, 20 mins)
It can take you that long to travel to a Grocery Store in a city.
Be glad you pay less than half for rent or mortage living in Philipsburg.
Towns don't get better by just sitting there. If you want to make a difference...GO DO SOMETHING about it.

Quit playing the Victims and be Pro Active.
