I hear there is a homeless shelter under the food pantry building across from the B&M in Quinwood and I have seen some men (young and old) hanging out in front of there. I also heard it may be moved to some area across from the Crichton intersection (and school).

Is it just me or does this seriously concern other citizens of Quinwood and the surrounding areas?

Remember when Turtle was on the run from the law for alleged rape and was found in a homeless shelter in PA somewhere? Maybe some of these men are in legal trouble or running from something too. I don't trust it and I don't like it.

Somebody should start a petition at B&M about that to get rid of it!

if you dont like it then why dont you open a few rooms in your house for the homeless. some people cant help thatthey are homeless so think before you speak. I understand that people may be hiding from the law but that dont mean they all are.

have a heart and some compassion. there is homeless everywhere. including quinwood. maybe you should ask how you can help as a fellow human being instead of judging. you might be surprised by the answer. everyone needs help in some way in life no matter how RICH of POOR. it's not a shame to be needy. no matter what the situation. um thanx

You will have to go door to door with that petition. You won't be allowed to put it at B&M.

I think the comment you are referring to was intended to be slightly sarcastic as they allow ANYONE to petition ANYTHING on that counter.

It really amazes me that all people have to do is run other people in the ground. That all you do is mouth off - instead of looking in to things. The "Homeless" shelter that you are referring to is a Home for Veterans - that are Homeless. That fought for you and me. I believe that you can ask anyone in the Krogers in Rainelle - that my husband and I purchase groceries quite a bit from their store - if not there-- then at Walmart. I never knew that my Mother-in-law was into "Money Rackets". So Ben and Charlotte Johnson help with the Food Pantry and Shelter too. So maybe you need to investigate "All of Us".....Since we all of such an abundance of "Money" oh yeah-- and "Food"....

Maybe the Quinwood Mayor would be willing to contribute some of the money he's getting from all the innocent motorists harassed by the Quinwood PD! I'd rather see it spent on the homeless than to buy a new set of Pirelli tires for the Mayor's corvet! This Mayor is detroying any good reputation this town has ever had!

I heard that they were going to build a battered womens shelter in Quinwood up the road from the school. I think there first one should be the one that will be next door to it. Her husband beats on her and her son all the time!

remodeled maybe,on christian love and TAXPAYER dollars.carolyn will get that in her name too.and i live in this town.it does concern me and most others too,maybe not the ones in line on saturdays,because the 5,6,or 700 dollars in food stamps,wasnt enough.setting there in those nice vehicles.yeah we see it all.shouldnt it be there for people when THEY NEED IT.to go to FOR HELP.we all know it really doesnt work that way.yes,Ben Johnson and Charlotte are very good people,they are good soldiers,god bless them and we are all grateful to have them,but they are not the problem.that is at the top.Biased,judgemental,misinfo rmed,and out of touch with the real needs of the community.between the food stamps and and the dedication to waiting in line,most of those people are ready for a famine.not in need.taking advantage of the situation

His name is David. Think he came here from Beckley. His wife is very sweet and doesn't deserve that. Maybe he needs to find out what it's like to get beat on!

I don't know who posted this but I DO NOT beat my wife and step son. We are VERY happily married and nothing like that goes on at our house. Who ever they think does that has me mixed up with somebody else.

Carolyn isnt running a moneyy scam or anything like that for the matter!!! She is planning on building a FAMILY HOME near the school FOR PEOPLE WHO HAVE LOST THEIR HOMES IN FIRES AND OTHER DISASTERS!!! And her family hasnt had it easy for many years! They have made it through these things with the power of god NOT beacuse she has gotten food from the food pantry! She has to buy food to!!! She gives food to friends BECAUSE they help her go pick up food and other supplies and they help with the food pantry NOT because she wants to! She Has a nice car because she was in a car accident this winter and her car was totalled and GOD BLESSED HER WITH A NEW ONE! She is now going to go into surgery because of that crash and god will bring her through that and she will be back! ALL ICAN SAY TO ALL U HATERS IS U WILL HAVE UR DAY IN HELL!!!!!

Maybe they should turn the Crichton Elementary School into a Homeless Shelter and bus the kids to Rainelle. Crichton Elementary really needs to be consolidated with other area schools!

what makes you think that. They have more kids that go up than they do anywhere else. Why is always this school.It is funny that they got more awards this year than any other school. If you can drink alcohol or smoke than you are not homeless. Just dont know how to manage your money.
