I have read so much hatred and gossip on here lately and it makes me want to puke. Most people live here because it used to be a great place to raise a family. Now days, you only hear the negative. I think it is time for the true good people of this town to stand up and say ENOUGH! Instead of spreading hateful things, try praying God will work in their lives and turn things around for them. Try volunteering somewhere or to do something for someone that is struggling. Be a positive influence on this community and help us turn things around and make it a better place to live for our children. I am begging you!

First thing old school, don't read what the haters post. They are bitter old fools who have nothing else better to do. You want the positive, become part of the Smile Fund. Join the newly reconstituted Chamber. Volunteer at the Amphitheatre or with the Heart of Rushville. Help out with Changing Footprints or one of the other fine charities or not for profits in town. Volunteer at the local schools or churches. There are many groups doing positive work. You don't hear about them here because the haters don't want to admit that there are good things going on. It ruins their skewed view of Rushville.

You miss the point on these topics like most Rush county people you want to sit on a fence.People are frustrated with the way Rushville and Rush county is being run down into the ground.There has been good Ideas on here to help the town and county out.You people laying down and and calling everybody haters you must enjoy living in a place that just keeps going down.Laying down and saying we should not do anything is sad. The negative on the county and city outweigh the positive.And as things sink more and more to the negative side it will affect the positive side.

It is my opinion that there are just a few haters that post under several different names, therefore it seems like there are a lot of people that think that Rushville is a terrible place. Good people with positive attitudes don't waste their time by posting on here.

So I take it that you "haters" are running for offices to make sure those changes are made, right? Just complaining is useless. Join those organizations and run for those offices that you think need help. No government will be ran based off an annonomously posted website.

If you want change, then start by making changes. If the majority of people are happy with this town then it won't change so your only option I to deal with it or move. Not wine and complain like children.

Maybe if you Do Nothing's would start getting on board maybe we would get this turned around and really make this a good place to live with good jobs,place's to eat,and place's shop.Instead of calling everybody haters,you people don't like change.

Maybe "us" people are on board and involved but can't get enough support when it counts. It is all of our responsibility and we only have ourselves to blame. I will continue to fight until my last breath.

I used "haters" because I was responding to a post that said haters. That is why I used quote marks. Sorry for using proper English.

Everyone misses the point. Baxter and his buddies were the "haters" when they were out of office. When they were IN office, the septic tank smelled like roses. Now that they're back, it does again.
Facts are facts: the city was a dump when they were in office, it was a dump when they were out of office, and it is still a dump. That is indisputable. Now Baxter (Sheehan) and the gang want everyone to rally round the flag, even though they simply sat around for four years and wrote the Rushville Truth site. How hypocritical!

Lisa,

Not really sure where you get your information, but you are quite wrong. There were many people who worked tirelessly the last 4 years to make it better, many of them the same people who are trying now. But they were ignored and as on here, insulted for that work.

Now four years later, there is an administration ready to work with these people to make Rushville better. And regardless of the haters attacking anything and everything they do, they are going to continue on. So you can sit on the sideline as it is obvious you are good at, and throw rocks at those who are trying make things better, or you can get off your rear and help out. your choice.

Truth is, many of us who were raised in Rushville in the 50's, 60's, 70's and 80's remember Rushville as what it was - a sweet, quaint little town. People worked hard, there were jobs, the town was neat and clean, and businesses were doing pretty well. People respected each other and each other's properties. It's all changed. Rushville really hasn't had a good leader since Joe Delon, and the town has spiraled south. A lot of it may be that many of the members of families who had very deep roots (like my own) and a love for Rushville have passed away or moved away and what we have now are a lot of transplants who have come to work at Trane, Copeland, and other factories who have no allegiance to our town. Not speaking about everyone who has moved in, but many. Properties are no longer kept up, stores have closed, businesses are failing, and just by looking at this site, you can see that people have no respect for each other. It's sad that my hometown has come to this, but it's going to take a lot more than $7000 in a smile fund to change things around. It needs to start with the name calling, accusations, and this stupid, petty Republicans vs. Democrats vs. Republicans that has been going on since McCane was in office. It has caused far more harm than good, and BOTH sides are guilty of it.

But at least it's a step in a POSITIVE direction. Someone trying to make something GOOD happen. And the result? Haters complaining that it is a stupid idea and never going to work...haters that won't step up and offer solutions or ideas to improve, just throwing out negative complaints...or haters that won't offer a helping hand in the form of voluteering to pick up a paint brush, trash bag, rake, weed eater, etc.

This fund should be use on structures of the downtown buildings. If not they will fall down & this money will be wasted.

This describes most of small town America, not just Rushville. Until everyone understands that and stops blaming each other, there is little hope that it will change.

The prolblem here is most people here thinks its the 1940's. I have been to a town smaller then this and no where near an interstate,got no mayor and run only by a town council.They get a Lowes,I wonder how did that happen.Rushville don't have to be a small town,its this way due too the lack of leadership.

Change comes at a price. Seems noone is willing to pay that price.
