Well what does the building do to us!? People that do drugs live there ok. The people that live there need there kids taken away anyway so maybe that would be a good reason to get these kids into better homes that they deserve. It absolutly kills me to see kids that have to live with or around people like that. It makes me sick. What kind of parent would think its ok for a child to be around such things. Think about that maybe?

NO you think about that. Every body in that building don't do drugs. Some have no choise but to live there. I know because I dried to help one couple find another place back in the fall and we couldn't find no place. They also hate living there but they have no choice. Do you have a place for them? They are good to their children and the children need them. I hate a damn know it all!

There are plenty of places to rent or live and dont tell me theres not cause there is places in the paper all the time. But its your fault you can get in one of those places because you wont get a job. You draw a check for your kids and food stamps. Get a job and make your own money. The goverment isnt your parent or caretaker. Grow the hell up and do something for yourself. Dont even start with me.

I'm looking for a place to live I have 4 children and I'm sadden that this are dont have any 3 or 4 bedroom apartments. If someone wants to make some good money needs to build an apartment complex with 3/4 bedrooms

No everyone who lives in the building doesn't do drugs. I live there and I do not do drugs. I have a job... I go to work everyday. I don't get food stamps and I don't draw a government check. I pay my rent from the money I earn doing a respectable job. I have a children who live with me and the first SOB that thinks they can take them from me because I live in an apartment should come try. You have no idea what goes on there or who lives there. You have your head so far up your ass you have to open your mouth to see daylight.
Who are your neighbors? Bet if you looked really close one or more of them are on drugs also. Drugs are everywhere. Maybe your doing a few drugs yourself.
The fire at Old Mill Apartments displaced several families, causing them much hardship. Do you even care if they have food or clothes. Probably no. You have no compassion for anyone. You are all about self. Becareful what you wish for.... it may bite you in the ass one day.

Well if you have a respectable job it shouldn't be hard for you to find a respectable place to live should it. And yes I do care about the kids and if they have food to eat and clothes on their backs. Children come first in my life no matter what. They are innocent. And if you don't want people to think your on drugs also I would suggest you move away from there ASAP. Cause that's all that place is known for. Crazy people and drugs. My friend got her wallet stolen out of her truck from a lady that lived there when she was trying to help her out and give her a ride home. The lady said her child was hurt so my friend have her a ride back to her apartment and the lady stole her wallet and didn't even have a child. Bunch of liars druggies and crooks. If your really not one of those people get out of there ASAP cause u will be accused of being one if u live there. Just saying

Good for you. I really don't know how God lets these bastords live that think they are all goodie two shoes. I know a couple that have 2 children that dont even belong to them and they share their home and food with these kids. They get nothing free. and some idot run his mouth. He setd home and his dad is retired but does the work and gives him the moneyand he thinks he is better than veryone.

I saw the fire and the first thing i thought was meth lab i know people who live there and are known for drugs . But when i saw the people running from the I.G.A. i thought they were worried they were not going to get their drugs. Maybe im wrong i hope i am and i hope it was not a meth lab blown up. Who lived there and how did it start if not drugs. And as far as the town police they are going to get someone killed flying through town. I truly hope there was no kids there if it was meth. If it was anyone who has kids need to get out of there. As far as places to rent the Powell valley is full of them this week if you have good references you should be fine renting one of them. Most people who rent dosent want anyone who will tear there house up or make a mess out of it.

From what I could actually understand & read on this topic I find apauling. I feel so sorry for the kids that live there. Drive by in the summer time & you will see children playing in the front in the dirt & gravel! I wish it would have burnt down. The place will hopefully be condemed. It sits right on that curve & for those that live there, pulling out it taking a big risk of being hit. Those comming can't see you pulling out until theyre right up on you & those pulling out can't see oncomming vehicles. Even at a safe speed it's dangerous. I always worry about the kids playing on the edge of, I guess you could call it a porch) The brick wall where the apartment the fire started in anyway, playing there and falling off & a vehicle comming upon that curve.
I also find it near pathetic that the poster is being judged just for living there. You should be ashamed of yourself saying just because someone lives in an ugly building & there are obvious drug deals there that ALL of them are on food stamps & get government assistance. It truely shows the mean spirit of most (not all) Lee Countians & makes me wonder if the next time I go out to the grocery store if Im not wearing American Eagle or Aeropostale you would say that I must shop at goodwill & live in a trailor park filled with druggies & Id be paying with foodstamps. God forbid I buy value time icecream. There are drug dealers & users everywhere, in every town in every state in every apartment building or trailor park or 5 bedroom brick houses in the United States. Not everyone is lucky enough to be born into money, some people are dealt a bad hand in life & do what they can to change it or make the best of what they have. Have you tried to live on minimum wage? I have & I can tell you right now that even if you & your spouse work & make minimum wage & have 2-3 children, you damn sure arent going to be able to afford a 500$ per month house and pay all of the bills and buy nice clothing & be able to provide 3 meals a day for your entire family. The average household gets 4$ a day to eat on when drawing foodstamps. Times are very, very hard for the lower & middle class. It's christmas time & it's tuff on people & hard enough as it is without having to lose your home on top of it. I don't care if your black white rich poor on drugs or drawing food stamps, we all have our downfalls & good & bad qualities.

Forgive me for my misspelling of some words, I don't proof read so I made some mistakes. That says something right there, huh?! SMH! & People that live there do drugs?! So, they deserved for their home to burn down. Well, a simple solution is to burn down 1-2 houses in every neighborhood in every corner of the world & that should 'smoke them out'! I truely am amazed at how cruel & to put it mildly.. idiotic & pathetic people can be.

Well said. I have a child and I work 7 days a week sometimes just to make ends meet and I sure can't afford $500 a month in rent or house payments. Yeah alot goes on at those apartments, but alot goes on on the street too. Does that mean all of us who walk down the street are drug users or dealers?
