I'm not sure why this has become a race issue. There is just as much white trash up there. I would want my address separate of the "ridge" as well. Let's face it, when you think of Buck Ridge Road, you think about drugs, crime, and welfare.

It became a race issue, because the black people made it into one. Why else bring the NAACP into this retarded issue?

Why was Buck ridge name being changed? Because it's blaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa aaaaaaaaaaaaaaack!

How now, brown cow.

Yeah, your correct. I can't believe with all that the NAACP is involved with, they would pay that much attention to Buck Ridge Road. They definitely have no idea what they are supporting. I can't believe that those outside of Gallia Metropolitan Estates would want to be associated with those apartments. That is exactly what anyone thinks when they hear Buck Ridge Road. "What apartment number" lol Didn't 3 people kill their children in those apartments last year.

That is why people live in those apartments. Either your on assistance and pay $2 a month or you take care of yourself and own a home. How else would I have responded to this thread? That's an easy one. Can't wait to get the Republicans back in office. Hopefully they will do away with the likes of these apartments. When you build mixed income apartments, it gives the welfare recipients some drive to do more. That's why New Orleans is building "mixed income" housing.

Its obvious that all of you are uneducated. Instead of coming on here and posting some nonsense why dont you take the time out and research why this might be a big deal to some of our community members. Stop making this a racial issue when it isnt. The NAACP is involved because if they werent Gallia County would not listen to what the residents had to say like they did months ago at the first meeting they attended. Become aware of what is happening before responding. I am not going to waste my time educating people on this issue because it is obvious you do not want to be educated. Its really a shame that 1 man can go into the court and say because I dont want my address associated with the apartments I want the road name changed and they actually change it! Is that how we are letting Gallia be ran? If so then why not let the people in Rio Grande rename Pine Street because of those apartments too?? You people are clueless on why they are REALLY fighting the name change. Spend time to educate yourselves!

I understand why the are arguing the point. There is a graveyard up there that holds black soldiers remains from the civil war. What is a shame is that Gallia county would allow those apartments to become such a crime ridden place that now this historic landmark is discredited. It's too late. Gallia Metropolitan Estates are closely linked with Buck Ridge Road. I doubt that 95% of the residence had no idea what is just up the road from them. Additionally, what is going on behind those apartments? What is that? A junk yard. If I lived anywhere near that place, I would want the address changed.

The reason the people on the other side of the hill wanted to change it is because everytime they go to the hospital and would tell them there address. They would get bombarded with stacks of insurance papers and asked 3 million questions.

And the black lady that called in the NAACP doesent even live on buckridge rd she's a member of the church that is up there lol. I think her last name is peck or something. And the people wanted to name the rd shadybrook rd.

@ aaron...get your facts straight before you post things. The lady is a member of the church AND SHE ALSO LIVES ON THE ROAD!!!! and as far as the hospital situation is concerned HOLZER does that everyone not just ppl with a buckridge address so that shouldnt have been mentioned. and any hospital that you go to its standard procedure and policy, if you don't believe me feel free to do some research?? everyone is entitled to their own opinion but everyone living on the on the road should be given a chance to express their views and be taken seriously!!!
just saying.....

Shadybrook road was being named after the Brook family who lived on and in my knowledge a Brook still lives up there so the road name will still be named after an african american. Why the NAACP is involved with the road being named after a african american family is beyond me.

They didnt know about the meeting and there is a church and grave yard up there is y they want to keep the name no point in changing it cause the way they are tryin to do it makes no sense from the bottom of the hill to scenic hills is actually magnolia rd so if they change from the church to 160 to the new name thats three roads on one no matter what ppl will refer to it as buckridge i think it should b left alone
