To all those who post on topix.. go to another towns topix like Chicago, Nashville, phoenix and find out what it is used for. In fact, before I moved to the town I live in I pulled up its topix and found wholesome posts about local events, discussions about moving to the town, etc... If you want van Wert to grow and be respectable ...honor your town and those who live in it. You are not only disgracing others but disgracing yourself as a dweller of a place full of drama.

Most respectable folks in Van Wert don't even know what the hell topix even is. The ones that do have seen hoe its been bastardized and there's really no turnin this bigass turd bucket around...

Even an intelligible debate about windmills turns into whose the biggest windbag jackass contest. It's one of the few real life debates thats actually dealt death blows to real life neighbor relationships and even driven some family's to the point of no longer talking to each other.

If you recently moved and live in van wert now, you'll want to move away soon enough. Trust me.

TOPIX + VAN WERT = Gutter Trash Its sad that good people have to come to this site just to clear their names or report abuse. Trailer trash will always try to stir things up.

This is a small town and what was once kept behind people's backs now has come to light on here. I find there is usually a lot of truth in most posts, as hurtful as it may be to the person. Businesses are a different thing, most of those threads are only being commented on by spiteful people. You will find that in all towns/cities. I rarely see anyone's name (as long as I know the person), where I don't already know what the thread is going to say before I click on it. Like I said, we all know who around here is on drugs, abusive, a compulsive liar, a cheat, a thief, a crappy parent...we live in too small of a town to not know. Unless you live under a rock you can't escape it. What I find unfortunate is those who see their name posted on here don't take a bit of the advise being given to them. Stop screaming at your kid at football practice, don't sleep around, knock off the drugs, don't steal, quit embellishing on your and your kid's achievements, don't throw your girlfriend down the stairs.
It's really not that difficult.

This is the first small town I've ever lived in. Before this, big cities like Chicago and Detroit. Believe me, everything you read on here happens there too, except more often. The difference is, nobody gives a damn. "It's your business, we've got our own problems" is what we used to say. I've lived in neighborhoods for 10 years and never knew neighbors names - didn't care to either. Seems to me that lots of people here want to compare their status with others. This site allows that to happen. If you get caught stealing, then I'm better than you. If you get arrested for drugs, then I'm better than you and so on. One more thing. There are no poor people here and no rich either. In Detroit for example, poor people literally starve or freeze to death. Rich people live in houses that look like the Central Insurance building. This is a middle class town top to bottom. Not a bad place at all when you come from the major metros. I like it - and the less I know about, the better off I seem to be.

If the less you know makes you better off then you came to the wrong place! EVERYBODY KNOWS EVERYTHING ABOUT EVERYONE! If they don't they make it up or go by rumors. Welcome to small town bullshit

That's what I meant by people comparing themselves to others here. Someone told me there are even names for neighborhoods here like Bucktown and Keertown. It's interesting to me anyway, that people would take such a small town and divide it into even smaller towns. I don't mean to put people down, I just think it's fun to hear about how things developed here.

Yes people everywhere care, it's just that in a larger city you don't know everyone like people do here. I think it's sad you could care less about your neighbor to the extent you don't even introduce yourself. Most people here are decent and friendly, we care about our neighbors and co workers. I'd say if you don't want to know the bad things you shouldn't come onto this site. I've been grateful to read some things and find out information I may not have known about otherwise, it's kept my kids safer and also has helped me. I don't gossip nor do I have friends that spread chatter, I've found out more things on here that go on around town than in the paper. It enables me to then ask questions to the right people and get the real information. I care about that because I care about my town. Many of us have lived here our entire lives, aside from our college years, and our families have been here for generations. Where I differ from your thinking is that I think most of us know when we're being told a fabricated story and when it's true. Like I said all it takes is asking the right people to find out the truth.

You do realize that is true for every city correct? Coming from Chicago, which has a dozen names for parts of the city, I'd think you'd know that. New York, Philly, Detroit, LA, even Fort Wayne and Lima have names to let people know the vicinity of where someone is talking about.

So it is true. This place IS different, or at least some of the people on here sure are. The areas of the big cities I lived in we called suburbs. They weren't areas They were cities with their own police and fire departments and mayors You know, Oak Park, Birmingham, etc. Anyways, good to see that some of you actually WILL defend this town. Good for you!

We just used street intersections. 9 mile and Gratiot, sixth and Ontario. I don't recall area names unless someone was making fun of it or someone's color or nationality.

I admit, gossip or not, I do find it interesting. At the same time, I feel sorry for whoever is the subject of the inquests.

So what do Buck and Keer have to do with anything around here. I guess I understand Keer Road, if thats where the name Keertown comes from.

Also, a co-worker tells me that Van Wert County people say they're wealthier than Paulding County people. He says that thinking goes back many generations in his family.

I've never heard an explanation why first ward is called Bucktown. We normally still call sections of town by their ward. Only old timers still call it that really, although our municipal court judge have a speech where she talked about being raised in Bucktown. Many people may have heard it being called that for the first time because of her speech. Kear Road area is called Keartown? Never knew that.
