Hey
Great discussion, as I work for Clark State and DJFS, you nay sayers have some major surprises coming. Keep the faith, we will bounce back. One challenge - be a part of the solutions.

Hey Ed
I came back after living in San Antonio, New Orleans and St. Louis. Springfield has lost alot of industry, but our leaders, City, County govt, Chamber of Commerce, DJFS and Clark State are joining regional efforts to revitalize the community. It's easy to focus on the negative, I challenge RSS to become a part of the solutions, there are many...

I wrote an editorial in the Springfield News Sun last year regarding the disarray Springfield is in. Since then we have lost more jobs, sales taxes have increased, and foreclosures are still on the rise. I have done charitable work in Spfld as the other person on this forum, also not for the knowledge of others. The many people I "helped" didn't even appreciate it. I am still associated with charitable organizations but to no avail. My husband has been with his Prime Ohio employer for over twelve years and he as well as many others are in fear of losing their jobs. The place he works for is very unnappreciative of the employees. The Human resources manager and the day shift supervisor sit in the HR managers office and make fun of the employees they lay off, or suspend without pay. Real caring people.

As far as doctors here, my family doctor is excellent. But the ENT's are useless. I was misdiagnosed for over two year with the wrong hearing disorder. A friend heard I was seeing that doctor and said his wife had been misdiagnosed by him as well. So fortunately he referred me to a specialist in Englewood. Now I have been properly diagnosed, had surgery, take medications; but from where the other doctor misdiagnosed me for so long, I'm going deaf. I could sue, but try proving the problem wouldn't have gotten worse anyway.

The Super Walmart has been a blessing. I don't understand people having a problem with a retailer that has low prices on groceries, general merchandise, as well as $4 prescriptions. Yeah, now you can get the same price elsewhere, but thank Walmart, they started it.

Crime here is out of control. They just caught 3 sexual predators at the resevoir a couple of weeks ago in just 4 hrs. Then a 75 yr old man was caught at the local swimming pool pleasuring himself as he watched the kids. Break ins are at an all time high. Theives are breaking into houses and flooding them by stealing the copper plumbing. Great place to live. We can't even park our vehicles out back because every time they get broken into. Calling the police is useless because they tell you they can't do anything about it.

I have been to and stayed many other places, and by far Springfield is the worst. As soon as we can afford to we will be moving away. But with the wonderful Springfield economy and high gas prices, who knows when that will be.
Ummmm

I think that's the article that got this forum started. It was in July. Springfield sucks.

I know, WHY would anyone want
to live here!
Even if I ive on the good side
of town it still sucks ass..
Crime is soo high and this town
is really old...and no ones even trying
to make anything better!
And then the people here..jeez!
The schools are pretty bad too..
I was living in Dayton for a while,
and had to leave to move to this place
in the middle of a school year, and I found
out that all the things that they were teaching
here had already been tought months ago
in Dayton...although Dayton sucks too...
I honestly can't wait till I get out of here..
but next summer just seems so far away...

I generally love small town Ohio and can usually find something charming about most Ohio cities. For some reason, I never liked Springfield very much. It is just a poorly planned city. It doesn't seem very appealing from street level. Everything seems like it was slapped together 3334with no regard for aestheticss at all. Mansfield is a similar-sized city with some of the same economic problems, but driving around at street level, it doesn't seem like a poor city to me.
Is that so

Well, since you ADMIT you work for corrupt DJFS, the "major surprises" you have coming can only be good for career welfare families and illegal aliens and their anchor babies.

Go spread your manure around those who are easily bulls**tted.

Hmmm, sounds like you didn't get the help you thought you deserved. Maybe you didn't.
Sounds like a great organization too me.

Sounds like you think you are well informed about the DJFS. Maybe you're not.

The "organization" you're so impressed with is taxpayer funded and staffed by under qualified gophers and sycophants, all beating their own chests and proclaiming what a great job they do, and all the while DESERVING citizens are passed over for benefits in favor of the crack dealer's babies mommas and the working-under-the-table illegal aliens and their anchor babies.

What you misinterpret as sour grapes on my part, is, in reality, disgust for the patent unfairness of this "organization" in handing out my taxes to those who are (deemed) worthy by the lackeys and mid-level "professionals" whose paychecks I (and other taxpayers) supply.

So according to you, if someone criticizes something, it MUST be because an injustice was done to them? Pretty simplistic thinking on your part.

My criticism comes directly from my personal views about the corrupt programs that DJFS supports and I have EVERY right to criticize it.

What "tone" of disgust would you rather read? A sugar-coated, politically correct "tone"?

Sorry, but I don't play "politically correct".

Doesn't sound like you play nice at all. Using politically correct as an excuse for rude behavior is childish.
You don't like the program, fine. Just be honest.Your using a right wing, in your face, self righteous, attitude.

Just be honest? Hahaha.....I'm ALWAYS honest - and it's that honesty that you're apparently upset about.

So you would feel better if I LIED......? Not much point in posting LIES in an anonymous forum is there?

Sorry if you want me to "play nice" (whatever THAT is defined as) but YOU don't get to make the rules for me.

My tax dollars go to supporting you and your family. I'm ok with that. Too bad you too ignorant to realize that. The infrastructure needs funds to operate and tax dollars are spent to keep things and people in reasonable condition. I don't like illegals any more than the next person, when I crossed the border I was told no Gov't funds were available to me or my family(all Americans).
I would rather they collected all the illegals ,put them on a bus and shipped them home.
But since I'm too busy to do anything other than contact Representatives periodically, I don't get childish about it.
Why don't you do something positive rather than acting like an ass?

BTW.You not having a profile makes you look like a drive-by goofball. Are you scared someone might figure out who you are????
