I first started to respond to your comments with clear logic, but you have already taken care of the appropriate response yourself, with your screen name "LAME BRAIN"

If they clean it up then in comparison the rest of Obetz will look like an eyesore.

Your name says it all. You, living in Dayton, are the pot calling the kettle black.

My family has resided in Obetz for over 40 years. The Junkyard Lounge has always been messy and no one complained before.

The only reason why Obetz officials want to clean it up now is to make the area look more attractive for investors. Everyone knows Obetz is trying to get themselves on the map - that's why they spent all that money on the new Crew center and that little recreation center off of Maureen Blvd.

As long as there is no health hazards, I don't see what the problem is...

I love Obetz Junction and Reese Station. They are the towns that time forgot. I love to drive through them and remember what life used to be like in central Ohio. Nothing ever changes there to speak of. I treasure them for that reason. Sleepy little towns, off the beaten path. Please never change.

You are all a bunch of idiots!- Just like in any area, there are people who care about the place they live and then there are others that could care less. I have lived in Obetz for many years, my house is old, however, it is clean, neat,everything in good working order, I have a well kept yard, no junk laying around.The neighbors on this block keep their homes looking nice. On the other hand, there are slobs that live on other streets around us, those are the people that the Village needs to target and demand them to pick up trash, get rid of junk cars, etc and clean up. We have new schools. It is not the Village that is bad, it is some of the slobs that we need to get rid of. By the way I know people in Dublin, Powell and Upper Arlington that drink PBR -So the idiot that singled out Obetz, take a look around your area. People who live in glass houses should never throw stones

We are near Obetz. The village it self, Love it!!!!! I totally agree The Junkyard needs clean up, INSIDE & OUT!!!! But, do NOT judge entire Obetz Village by one bussiness that refuses to maintain. As far as the "improvements" alongthe fishing pond, park, etc, what a waste!!!! Only messed up a once nice pond where daddy's could take their kids and really fish! And the Zucchini Fest, ALSO, gone---- as in lousy now.

I drive that section of williams often. The lounge is surrounded by a junk yard rail yard, body shop etc. the whole strip is industrial comericial type businesses. I don't see a problem. Maybe if the neat freaks would spend more time working , no code enforcement is not work it is suckling at the public teet, they wouldn't have time to bitch about private property.

People who want to control others' property should move up to Dublin, Worthington, Arlington. Lots of Boards and Associations there to enforce your lifestyle. They'll tell you what color to paint your house and what you can plant in your yard. Leave folks alone. They pay the taxes on their houses. You don't. F. off.

It is "ashame" that the village counsel has looked the other way, and have failed to motivate the business owners on Williams Rd to keep it cleaned up. It is "ashame" that the Business Owners don't do the decent thing, and keep there businesses area's clean without having to be told to do so.(wonder what their homes look like?) It is "ashame" that the people of Obetz have to endure this mess each and every time they travel Williams Rd. "It is ashame" because There is plenty of blame to go around. It's "ashame" that my Home Town, where I spend my childhood is looking so bad.
It will be "ashame" if we can't work together, inorder to clean it up. Now let's Get-Hot, Turn-TU and get it done!

This place is great the way it is. Leave em be. If you are looking for the coolest lounge in town, look no further than the
Junkyard Lounge. This lounge has it all, prostitutes dressed as hobos, midgets that served in WWII. David Hasselhoff impressionists. They have drinks that rhyme with phlegm. They have contortionists that greet you at the bathrooms with a tulip. the entire room smells like rain. You want more action, look over in the corner, it's a Ted Williams lookalike who can sing Girls just want t o have fun. and every hour on the hour they read a chapter from Twilight.

I agree that it is a shame, that is to say it is a SHAME that you have no idea what you are talking about!! It is also a shame that you cannot spell, or know how to use spell check. No intelligent person could possibly read what you wrote and give you any credit for Intelligence.
