Its been in the newspaper a lot lately about how people are angry with our city leaders because all they care about is the river front.What they don't realize is that more people are mad about it than they think. It's not just a few it's everybody you talk to. The pot holes in the streets are big enough to park a car in! That's in the city too, don't get me started on the highways leading to and from the city. When it rains , you hydroplane so bad on 231 you can't drive over 40mph. People around here can't afford the repairs it cost to fix all the damages caused by the sad state of the roads around here.I don't see why anybody would want to come here, especially if they have to drive here. But the city leaders don't care they are all downtown! Living it up on everybodys tax money. Spending money for studys to see how to spend more tax money that they expect all of us to fork up.You know scientist say we need more trees to help with global warming , Owensboro Ky. cuts down trees and spends a million or two on concrete trees. Wow ,You go Owensboro We look really dumb.I hope the select few can live with themselves while the rest of us are dealing with life in the real Owensboro. Shame on you Ron Payne think of somebody other than you and your friends.When all is said and done and you stand before God , what will you say you did for the people that really needed you here in Owensboro? Not much if they didn't live downtown.

I totally agree! Now what? Owensboro is horrible!! Horrible!! Don't even wanna get started. Look how long they put off mowing. State,county and city. Horrible place to live! Movd back here almost a year ago and wow, it is so comical. The people, the attitudes! So done with this town! Think Mr. Depp is proud to call this home? Listen to the song Owensboro, believe buy Natalie Merchant. Youtube search Owensboro, look at the first video that pops up! Such a joke!!

Thank you guys and God Bless. Nice to know I'm not the only one who has compassion for the needy. Been there myself. Maybe one day our city leaders will be like the tin man and get a heart.{But I doubt it.}
