I am so sorry for what everyone is going through.
It's sad to see my hometown brought so low.

how to be more commonplace with the town and what happens to it. theres to much greed there, ever body is just out for what they can get, be it drugs, land theives, and murderers, bootleggers, this to me is not a good place, i remember o.h. a long time ago.when neighbors would help each other out when they needed help, i still do right to day, we need to get back to this way of thinking. our kids are wild and we let them, heres 5 bucks get out of my face. is what there told, go play your vidio games, etc, we the people have lost the will to make things better for our selfs and our children? god only knows whats next?

This town is stronger than what people gives it credit. It is over 100 years old and we are still standing. I agree we have problems just like other towns. We can't control mother nature. But we can help one another, whether it be giving a helping hand or a word of encouragement. Prayers go along way, so will a smile.
Thank the people who helped you and help the people who still needs help.
