Regardless of how the tax levy goes, my family and I have decided to sell, no matter the loss and get out of Lincoln County.

Why? I'll tell you.
1.) Not being from here makes you automatically outcast. My tax tax dollars are just as good as yours.
2.) I will gladly forgo a large open space in favor of basic infrastructure and services. I don't want malls or mega plex, just basic services competitively priced.
3.) Money is not the issue for me and I'm tired of being made the target of jealous harassment because I have been a responsible adult with my finances.
4.) I have lived in other rural parts of the country. Only here have I witnessed such ill will and disregard towards one another.
5.) I want to have a discussion with another person that speaks in words of more than two syllables AND without profanity or obcenity.

I have no regrets and you'll have another empty property not producing tax revenue....when YOU need it most.
hey ya

I'm really fed up with all curse words that are being posted. I noticed a marked increase in viewers on this site after the news of the teacher broke. Not saying there is a connection just saying this site isn't a fun or interesting as it used to be.

This BLOG is the one and only place where you will find an HONEST and TRUTHFUL assessment of this county and its many issues. You WILL NOT see these facts in the news paper or here them on the local radio stations. Because it involves naming names and assigning blame for the problems here, you won't find kindness or generosity.

Truth and honesty are sometimes painful. This BLOG is a reflection of a community with HUGE issues. Issues that no one wants to talk about, let alone deal with!
hey ya

I agree with that. I'm just saying there used to be people on here that also commented on the dull and boring threads that gave it a nice neighborly feel. I liked my cyberfriends but they are no longer on here. Have a nice day, and I mean that sincerely!

No, what's stupid and dumb is a community that can't figure out which way is up!

A community that allows its Good Ol Boy officials ripoff the public and then act like its ok!

A community that has NO idea what it is doing in terms of economic development or tax base growth.

A community that has its OUTSTANDING CITIZEN'S mug shots on TV every other night. aka Hawk Point stabbing suspect.

A community that ranks education at the BOTTOM of its priorities.

A community that REFUSES and/or DENIES the truth about itself and its issues.

A community that elects people to public office ONLY because their family lived here for multiple generations.

How's that for DUMB and STUPID?

I am also wanting to leave .... I think a lot of people are that don't post here. It is very discouraging to see so many people opposed to trying to give your children a better life and education.

We moved here about nine years ago becuase we thought that it would be better than O'Fallon ... back then the schools had a good reputation and the community was by and large a supportive one.

I think there are so many people opposed to things that President Obama wants to do/is doing here that they are overlooking how important some taxes are such as a school tax.

I don't like President Obama or most of the policies of the Democrats... but I know the difference between a good tax and bad tax.

At any rate... I can't afford to leave or I would be out the door as well.

It is hard to be Christian in the view of so many negative comments but my prayer is for the people of this county to finally realize how important the next generation is and to vote for the schools and other improvements in their own community.
sadly the truth

It's a sad day when one can read this, and instead of saying "whatever, fine, then move" you shake your head and say "damn, they just hit the nail on the head".

Best of luck to you, sorry to see it come to this.

Lincoln County:^^This is the sad truth. Unfortunately, I would bet that a lot more good people are on their way out. Lincoln County will be nothing but a piss poor trailer trash community with crappy roads and substandard schools that will keep dying.

But hey, we'll still have 20 fast food restaurants and $5 pizzas in Troy.

I have lived in Troy for 2 years... Worked here for 19 years... I wished I would have stayed the way it was.. Work here and commute home... I never realized how the "Old Family Names" really do rule this community. I can see that the city officials are doing nothing to make this community inviting to ANY big business.. Because of that it leaves the entire school budget the responibility of the home owners.. No business to help offset that cost and a million trailer homes that don't help support the town... Property values are in the dump and I cannot see why I have to pay higher taxes because Troy Officials are not doing their jobs for the community as they should be.

I want to thank them..........

Thank you for lining your pockets.

Thank you for rejecting new ideas, like P and Z, a rec center, TDD and TIF here in Troy.

Thank you for NOT supporting the schools.

Thank you for continuing to accept the old and rejecting the new.

I think that should just about cover it!

sadly, it's not that they're not currently doing anything. I think that the new blood is trying to find ways, but the options are so limited to impossible.

You can thank the last 15 years of administration for just collecting a check and not being proactive.

but yes, your assessment is spot on, the picture that you have painted demonstrates why we are where we are. Now if the rest of the topix peanut gallery would just realize it.

Let provide a detailed list of the "Civic Minded" and their "Contribution" to Lincoln County:
Pheeze Kemper - A selfless display of cowardice in leadership regarding TIF and TDD
Elaine Luck - Gross incompetence while in office as detailed by 2 state audits, a total lack of ethics and a 5th amendment plea.
Jerry Fox - No ethics, improper check writing and uncanny television presence
Sean O'Brien - Total disregard for the rule of law and lack of ethics and conflict of interest.
Dan Dildine - Infamous breach of jury selection process resulting in multiple appeals of criminal cases.
Gary Cockrum - See Pheeze about the TDD
Monte Cannon - Supreme Slum Lord and architect of run amok demands on an already inadequate infrastructure
Clay Creech - Slum Lord Trailer Park Operator
Warren Albright - Infamous for buying property on the courthouse steps, placing multiple repo trailers on them and destroying your neighbors property value all in the name of "making a buck".
Jesse Waugh - Slum Lord inside Troy City limits.
Christie Henke - Newly elected Treasurer that needs to retain an attorney to explain what her job is as defined by Missouri State Statute.
Ed Schieffer - The Farmer's/Unions/Minority party elected state representative that caters to special interests, panders to insignificant political causes in the name of a photograph in the paper while having a convenient memory loss about the majority of his constituents and the campaign promises made and mailed.

Shall I go on?

What company of any size or legitimacy would want to invest in Lincoln County when there is no protection through P & Z?
No sane business person would take that risk, especially when they can go to a right to work state, have P&Z as well as already installed infrastructure? Sorry, you might as well try herding cats.

I pay my taxes. That ENTITLES me, yes I said that, to speak out on issues that affect the spending of that money. At least I don't think I am ENTITLED by birth, unlike some of the hoosiers in the backwater community!

And now we see the problem(s) with Lincoln County. Some clown redneck actually called your post clueless! Can you actually expect a community with such nimrod brain dead individuals to actually be successful? Not in this lifetime!
