A)More police officers to #1) issue a $500.00 fine to anyone littering to include cigarette butts #2) To arrest anyone who drives under the influence of alcohol or drugs or who is guilty of public intoxication.#3) create a drug task force hell bent on searching out and destroying meth labs and those who sell illegal prescription pills.

B)Use alcohol revenue to build a detox center and a battered spouse center. So that the revenue is used to help those who abuse rather than use in moderation.

c) a 24/7 cleanup crew that would pick up all of the trash in the city and up and down 27. I suggest using those convicted of littering or prisoners exclusively.

D) Create a 4 year college or university to educate our kids and keep that education local. Build it right over top of that useless airport. Southern Kentucky University. Focus on education not paying basketball and fotball coaches.

It seems you need to be aware of your environment a little more than you currently are. In regard to A. There currently is a drug task force through Unite. B. Recently a private entity was attempting to open a Detox Center here in Pulaski County and was met with such a response from the local residents in protest that he withdrew his proposal and has not been heard from since. There is currently a spouse abuse center in this county and it does very well for it's clients, it has been here a number of years. C. Inmates are used at this time for litter pick up and have been for at least 2 years, probably longer than that.
The other items I have no issue with.

I agree with the teen center and also feel we could use a place for the older generation to dine and dance and I'm not talking about a honky tonk night club either.

a dinner mystery theatre or something similar to pioneer playhouse. This county is starving for entertainment. Saturday night sitting on the side of the hwy to watch cars (traffic)...really? Sorry because I know this is stepping on many toes but that seems pathetic to me. I saw people sitting in lounge chairs at 4 in the afternoon watching cars drive by.....wow!

A teen/rec center

improved areas we already have (Hosp., newspaper, school/library programs, maybe even bring back a YMCA. Better names at 4th of July or MMF or just some open air summer concerts in general.

Thanks for the input. I guess I wasnt very clear. I know we have a drug rask force but I meant one with the better equipment..state of the art to stop the meth makers and dealers. Seems everybody knows where one is but they are in and out of jail then continue to cook after they leave. So whayever UNITE is doing..they need to do more..again..alcohol taxes funding it more. I know about the methadone clinic. That guy;s motivations were questionable. Im talking about inpatient controlled rehab not switching one pill for another then allowing them to drive away. Heard there was a womens shelter but meant one in the city (not sure where the county one is) divert some funds especially from alcohol sales to make it better. Yes I know we use prisoners to pick up trash but not to the extent we could or should. 27 is still a mess and theres still litter everywhere.

Why not send them to rehab until clean? Yes, I understand the state cannot afford it. but we cannot afford to just keep letting them go back out into the community. the majority of meth heads as they ae called will do about anything for their habit even kill. As we have already seen in Russel county when a mother of 3 was found dead. a robbery gone bad. No they didnt say anything about him being on meth, but by his picture it was very obvious. The ones who become clean can pay rehab back. They have to go to work at one time or another. After all the IRS always gets their money whether your poor or rich. I know someone who gets their prescription of zanex,(sorry misspelled)every month. They dont need them per-say and I cant prove they sell them to certain people. They have to put a limit somewhere in that system. That goes for veteran hospitals as well. I did witness a veteran getting prescriptions for uppers and downers. I know one was perk-sets, dont know how to spell that one. If not rehab, leave them in jail with about 5 in a cell for at least 6 weeks. All just a suggestion of course. the government has done something about selling copper now. A lot of air conditioners from citizens homes were being vandalized for the copper in order to get money. Most who were caught were meth users. And one more thing. I will call authorities on suspected meth lads in my community and if I see one itching in the stores. If everyone would stop looking the other way perhaps it might help tremendously.
