There is now going to be a "Halfway House" going in on Crowder street!! The kinds of people that are going to be in this house is just not right, there are many children in this neighborhood and lets not forget it's only a block down from The Sullivan County "Public" Library. We are not even going to be able to let our kids walk over there and enjoy a book from the library because I dont know about you but I dont trust a bunch of Dope Head ex convicts. Maybe Ms.Woods could get this moved in one of those empty houses down there on South State by her?. Maybe, they could be put to work over at the Recycle Center keeping the place cleaned up??? Seriously though, not by the Library, I mean come on!!

It's obvious you don't really know anything about the " THE LUKE HOUSE" The people that will be in this "rehab"(there not sex offenders) will be tested for alcohol and drugs I ask you this if you have a empty house next to you and the owner rents it out how do you know if
they are on drugs or will they be dealing dope at all times of the night maybe even have a working meth lab right next to you? the people that will be housed there will be tested before they are allowed to even step in that house and tested on a regular bases, there will be staff there at all times monitoring there every move again I ask you this whats going on next door to you? you don't know. The people will be policed more then anyone living next to you even More thin anyone living in Sullivan they did there time they want a new start and get back in the community be productive and contribute more thin you will ever know I suggest you attend the next meeting which is slated for September 8th at 6:30 p.m. at the Christian Church and ask all the questions you want I would rather have someone living next to me and my kids that are monitored like they will be then strangers that could be up to no good and be doing it right in front of me and I not even know it until the cops bust the place, lastly I believe you have a valid concern whoever you don't know all the facts hope to see you Sept. 8th

I don't see a problem with Luke house being on Crowder street. you can have people on drugs on any street in town. the people who will be living at this house are trying to straighten up their lifes so we need to support them.

Ok, check this out. I bet the "clients" that are going to be in this halfway house are going to be given an option like " Go to jail for a year or go to the LUKE HOUSE for 6 months" I mean come on, what would you choose? These shit bags are going to go to get out early not for help! Just what I want my kids to see on the way to the library, a bunch of dope heads going through withdraws. Think of this, this happens at the jail, some buddy of theirs drives by and drops off a "Package" for one of them by the curb or in a storm drain for later pickup, BUT one of our children finds it and overdoses on it! Who's door do I go knockin on?? Again, this happens at the Jail so why not the Luke house by the Public Library? Dope heads will get their fix no matter where they are.

Just look which Sullivan County attorney spear headed the buy. Mr No morals or No values himself. Anything goes. Unless you are not in the good ole boys society. Just take a look a his track record his own additions with drugs, spirits and Yes SEX ADDICTION. Just check out his list of open door room at the Holiday Inn.
The people who are for usually have been there or are hiding a closet adiction.

All of you could speculate your brains out and come up with all sorts of what ifs, the fact still remains thees people will have to prove by testing that there clean and sober before there admitted and continually during there stay you seam to forget this is a Faith based endeavor, all your what ifs are unfounded, let one of you that have not done wrong throw the first stone

Maybe You NIMBY people should read the ' Fair Housing Act ',..Then check your bank account before You put Your Selfish interests ahead of the Whole community,..You Really sound like someone "Thinks one way,while Acting another " a Bigot,I think is the definition,..

Get real Jack. You already have crank heads and freaks in your neighborhood. The Luke House will be a controlled environment (the rest of the neighborhood isn't). If the Luke House resident screws up, he/she is out of the house and out of the neighborhood.
Take a look around. The community eyesore is no more. The place already looks better than it has in years. That is just a start.
If it is in your neighborhood, be a neighbor and go over and help. Go ahead. You might find out you can be a decent person like these decent people trying to do something positive for their fellow human beings.
You already know jail doesn't work on most of these meth addicts. If Luke House can save a few it is worth the effort.
God Bless these people and I thank them for their efforts.

Seems like this is Only The First 'Half way House ' to be in this neighborhood,..If All goes Well,..A second one is In the making !YES,It`s True !

To "possible truth" and "yes yes" I want to say you have so much of your facts wrong. I am not going to argue with you, several people on this discussion board have tried to talk to you but your either too full of hate or scared that you won't listen.
First of all, The Luke House is really not a half way house. It is a place that will be safe from alcohol and drugs to allow those who are taking their first steps back out into society while walking in recovery. No one in the house will have any type of violent or sexual conviction. It will also have a zero tolerance policy. If some slips or stumbles, they will be kicked out. And instead of you thinking a judge will give them choice of jail or The Luke House, you need to know that would not be offered to someone with no chance of making it. Besides my understanding when they are offered a chance at a recovery program their step are written down and accounted for to their Probation Officer. Failing to complete they immediately go back to jail. A Half Way House is usually ran by the state and controled by them. This is a community problems and thus a community home. If you believe in a God of second chances then you need to come and join others who are working hard to keep Sullivan Co. from being the #1 county in meth labs and busts. Instead people believe in giving second chances in hopes of putting families back together, saving lives and stopping the crimes associated with addictions. I believe you don't want to hear these words, thats fine keep using scare tatics and spewing hate, people will quit listening to you. Faith based recovery homes do have a deceit success rate.
Thank You to all who are supporting the only hope for these people! We need you! Come visit the booth at the Corn Festival!

obviously the person who created this forum doesnt believe in some people changing. Those "dope heads" are peoples families who are trying to better themselves. You should be ashamed of yourself. That will be a controlled environment so dont worry about your kids. Those people have a right to be there like you have a right to live where you do. Your pathetic

Ok all you "Supporters" I want you all to remember all of these cmments. One day the Luke House will fall flat on your faces and will then close due to one of the "clients" doing something real bad or due to most of them getting out and reoffending just like they do when they get out of jail. Hey I have an idea, there is a paint huffer in hymera( I think he may be in jail right now again) he needs your "help" put him first on the list. Take that as a challenge. Ill be watching. JM

O my goodness, This is silly. All I can say is I pray for these people and pray for their families and that they really want to change and that people will give them a chance.

This is Sullivan.
I can assure you, you aren't going to be walking by that many more addicts than you already were taking your kids to the library. If you want your kids to walk down a Leave it to Beaver street, you're going to have to move to a different city. Even then I doubt it will help.

actually the people in the luke house are ppl that have already served there time and choose to go there to be educated on how to stay clean and to get support. they are good ppl plus you have brent sanders living in your neighborhood, hes been selling and doing drugs for years he has hiv and hep c and he's a sex offender. r u losing focus geeez o pete u just lookin for something to talk about get a new topic. he attacked and raped a girl that was leaving the library so theres something to talk about genious
