Did anyone hear that the city was too broke and they wasn't having a tobacco festival this year? I just hate it, it was getting built up with the kids and the county fair. Why can't we have anything in Elliott County?
too bad

No, we can't. When over 1/2 the county is on food stamps and welfare, and the rest are on drugs!!

Better off, it was worthless anyway.. Maybe the school will step in and do something with 4H or something, but a real county fair? nah.. it's a waist!

I'm sorry i don't agree with your numbers. I believe it's more like 80 percent on welfare and 90 percent on drugs

Yeah because 80+90=100. Way to be! You should google percentages and read up some on it.

And "Too Bad", if you don't like it, why don't you take your rich, mighty ass somewhere else?

It was the county, not the city.
The city will give its part to the fire depts but the county will not!

*shrugs* You may just have a point there

I don't think it's all just David either...(I am going to get hung for this )

But 2nd class things come to 2nd rate people... DO NOT STOP READING THERE ... let me explain.

a HUGE majority of people in this town are on some time of assistance... food stamp, medical card, crazy checks ,etc....There for NO "REAL" money being spent in this town..

Truthfully, what is there to spend money ON in this town? You got dollar store,(That is always a MESS), Grocery store (that is WAY over priced), Gas stations (most of us get gas b4 we have to head home to keep from paying 10 cents more on the gallon), A few restaurants (Subway is the ONLY One to speak of! the rest are dirty, run down, and/or don't get your order correct), Then you have a few used car lots (From what I hear are selling death traps and junk off the lot and swearing that they are road worthy).

OK ~ You wrap alllllllll of that together; what do you get ? People that HAVE/MAKE NO real money, that have to go out of town to spend what little money they do have. Then you have those of us that WORK, that HAVE REAL money, but we Are no where NEAR this county to spend it because there is NOTHING here worth Buying...

So... all this equals to a BROKE ASS TOWN! It's not just David or Pennington or Adkins or Stevens or Ison or any one else that we can all sit back and point fingers @... it's a lil' bit of every one! SO to place the blame on one single person, we can't! you can blame me for not doing business in EC.... but that wont Change where I conduct my business.

Anyway, I have rambled on long enough.... The only thing that is going to change this town or any other Poor Town in the U.S./ eastern Ky / Appalachia is the way our government issues out aid! Kicks life long welfare check drawers off the system. Forces them to teach there children there is another way of life other than being ON the System...... Really, I'm done rambling :)

Sorry to say, but sounds like Some of Elliott County's Finest where in attendance ;)

I have been to a couple, I really feel no need to go. The music is bad, the booths are pathetic, and the food is questionable, and like you had said, most of the people are deplorable!

Thank you for your compliments on my previous post. I am just fed up with so many aspects of this county; from the school system and the teachers and principals to government to local stores....If I could afford to buy another home in a dif. county at this very moment, I'd be packed and loaded in no time!

You know you a**holes that b*tch about people being on assistance in this county, WHERE THE HELL ARE ANY JOBS!!! None in the county, and most out of the county fall way short when it comes to making enough money to drive to the job, pay your bills, child care and whatever else. Many folks on assistance are out a lot trying to find whatever little job they can find locally to try and make ends meet. And fact is, many working people also get assistance, because they don't make enough money on their jobs to not qualify for assistance. Besides that, if it weren't for government assistance most of the businesses in this county wouldn't exist. If you don't want people to be on assistance, there have to be jobs, so why don't you do something creative with your time and figure out how to make that happen here.

You know what you are right... There are people on assistance that HOLD A JOB. They work 40 hours a week, and still need help.

BUT!!!!! Let me ask you this! Where do these people LIVE that work and are on assistance? What do these people DRIVE that work and are on assistance? What do these people SMOKE and DRINK that work and are on assistance? What do these people WEAR that work and are on assistance?

Do you see what I am getting @ here ? I know some people that work and get assistance. I know some of those people are living in Government assisted housing.= low monthly rent.
Some of these people receive help in child care through grants awarded to day cares and private sitters.= lower child care rates
Some of these people wear nothing but the BEST of clothes b/c they get help through the schools and welfare office with little money grants
Some of these people smoke'n $5 a pack Marlboro's and got a case of bud light in the fridge. Some of these people even drive a better vehicle then some of the hardest work'n people in this county because You know why??? Because they don't have to pay FOR ANYTHING ELSE!!! You know when a lot of us where getting our 3-4-500 Dollar Electric bills back in March??? They where on heat assistant programs that helped them out.

Do you see more of what I am getting at??? You are an idiot if you where to think that I would believe some people out there do not need help. You have the completely disabled, elderly, retarded, injured, and a few others. That IS NEVER what ANY ONE is complaining about when the COMPLAIN About the system... That is what EVERY STINK'N SINGLE ONE OF YOU that jump up and yell, BUT BUT BUT... EXCUSES!!!!!!!!
NOT BUT EXCUSES!!!!

Guess what?? I work in Ashland. Guess what? My husband works in Ashland too! Guess what?? We work dif. shifts to where we can't even ride together to save on gas and vehicle maintenance. Guess what? We have a child!! Guess what? I go to school too! Guess what? I Don't qualify for financial aide because we make to much, but I can sit and watch you fat heifers with your EBT cards and Medical cards running you kids to the Dr. just b/c of a snotty nose. When I have to worry about my co pays and what is my insurance going to cover, and how much is medication going to cost. It's because of People like I mentioned above the "WORK" the system only... That is the Only WORK They know of is how to WORK The Damn SYSTEM!

Now... Do you follow ??? Where is the HELP For the ones that PROVIDE All of this for you people that only know how WORK the SYSTEM??? Hell, I'm going to need psychiatric help just from thinking about this... It really makes me want to snap some peoples heads off when I think about how EASY they have life and don't have to do ANYTHING!!!

And NOW you say for ME to use MY Time to FIGURE out a way to get YOU A JOB ???? BAH HAHAHAHAHAHA Lazy ass ~ Get your own job like the rest of us! Damn!

btw, do you think I could get a medical card if I was to go to a shrink??? lmao

Sorry just can't get over some one actually saying to me or any one else who is against Abuse of the system to Use their time to figure out a way to get some one a job!!!

That is fook'n hilarious! You are brilliant, I tell ya... just Brilliant!

I'll tell ya what.... here is how the general process goes. And we'll make it simple!! you have a computer ~ Obviously. You go to google or yahoo, and you search for Kentucky Employment Office, you do local search with in 25 miles of where you live, it will pull up page after page of ... GUESS WHAT ~ AVAILABLE JOBS!! You apply for job. You work on a professional looking/sounding resume. You make a list of the jobs that you applied to online, and you give them a few days to get your app.and then you call and check as a courtesy and to show that you are interested in going to work... Oh Another thing.. this is just for u Paisley.. MAKE SURE that you can Pass A Drug Screen!!!!

Great posts, i reckon! Wonderful insight.

Where is the nearest town that needs employees?
Get a bus to take those that "want" to work but have no local place to get work. Hopefully, the bus driver will forget to pick them back up:>>
