I think the leaders and decision makers should ALL be replaced. Too much small town politics.

Wow. Maybe you should just move. We've been here for over 20 years. My husband works. We don't drink or do drugs so our choice of friends are great. We like it here.

Maybe you should rethink your lifestyle and friends so as to get a better outlook on our town.

WOW. Many of us have lived here much longer then 20 yrs. We dont drink or do drugs either, but just look around at this crappy town. It didn't used to be this way, but city officials dont give a damn what it looks like. Main Street, from one end to the other is a disgrace and with so many empty buildings, who would want to consider moving here. Not all problems come from drugs and alcohol, far from it. Problems do arise when the city officials are tied at the hip to the good old boy network and until that system is broken up, nothing will improve, except their bank accounts and more of the same.

The downtown area is a total joke. look around at other small towns, wil,ore, georgetown, winchester and others. they have old buildings but thriving businesses because they have people who care and not those who just sit on their asses and collect their inflated paychecks. again until the heirarchy changes, nicholasville will continue to be the podunk, dirty, hillbillie town it is right now.

sorry, but that is absolutely the truth.

I've lived here all my life. Fifty five years. I've seen & heard it all. This use to be a very nice little town till all the outsiders started coming in because they couldnt actually afford to live in Lexington. There use to be many small friendly businesses and their living was earned honestly. The closest bootlegger was in Keene. Nothing was open on Sunday and if it did open, not til 12 or 1 after church let out. Families visited up & down the streets. Children could walk to school. There were no mexicans or towel heads. We worked our own fields and gas was pumped for us. I would know that you were an oustsider just by your last name. Im willing to bet that you don't even work in Nicholasville.

You guys can whine and complain all you want. Bottom line, things are unlikely to change so if you don't like it here, then just leave. And to "Concerned", from one white person to another, just stop with the racism. Nicholasville does not want your kind here. Why live somewhere that you don't like?

Lol - me a stop with the racism? Never said I was "white" and you don't have a clue about the "old Nicholasville". Unlike you I'm sure, my land has been paid for for a long time. I'm not leaving but thanks for the suggestion :)

I don't care if you are white, black or a Mars Alien. Referring to people as "Towel heads" is racist and hateful. I see you are not denying you are white or racist either... If you are the kind of people that use to be what Nicholasville was, then it must have sucked back then!

To "spinny," being racist does not mean that you cannot refer to the obvious. mexicans, iranians, israeli's or whomever come in here and take over our communities. they are often times rude and hateful and cheat whoever they can cheat. this goverment gives them rights that we dont have, so get off your high horse. nicholasville used to be a nice community, until outside, foreign elements came in and took over the place. been here for over 50 yrs too and you dont know what u r talking about, so please shut the hell up. you are part of the problem. nicholasvilel used to be a good place to raise a family but no longer. it sucks now and not then so get the story straight.

You dont think refering to a race as "towel heads" is racist?

nope, not at all. that is what they are. they wear towels or turbins on their heads and that is a commonly used name for them. not racists at all. no different than then calling us white americans or black americans.

Wow, who is this guy? Do you think an Arab man would take offense to you calling him a "towel head"? Yes he would! Fine, we wont call it racist, but it is mean and disrespectful (and racist). You are small minded and ignorant. You better stay in Nicholasville as long as you can, cause that shit doesn't fly anywhere else.

Sorry Jason but I am neither small minded nor ignorant. the truth is the truth and yes, while it offends sometimes, nonetheless, it is still the truth. and besides, the call themselves WORSE than that. Just ask one of them and they will tell you.

It is such a shame that one cannot speak the truth on here without being labeled as ignorant, disrespectful or racist. Guess that IS the typical mentality in this hick town, which is run mostly by either the good old boys or the towel heads. If you can prove me wrong, go ahead and try, but you cannot do it.

And, I would almost take a towel head over some of the politically corrupt generations of fools here anyway, so there ya go. Now, refute one word of what I have said, will ya? Oh no, you cannot because it is 100% true:):):)

Nicholasville use to be a good place to raise your family and everybody knew each other and help each other. But times have change and the aliens in this town have over taken it plus the number of unemployed and the ssi population that are living in half the housing in this town that brings down the value of people owning thier homes near by and the violence that has come with it (example miles road)so many people are moving here for the housing that has nothing to offer in return except trouble. I am not saying all but the ones that manipulate the system and gets by with it.The ones that deserve it and take care and appreciate their help i am not talking about. But the ones that get help and do not try to help themselves. The crime rate in this town has increase in an alarming rate over the past several years and is scary. Meth labs in restrooms at wal-mart stabbings at kroger what else is going to happen? It is sad but it is the truth!!
