Scott County in general symbolizes everything that is wrong with this country. Your drugs per capita is staggering (especially in Austin) Your young girls are drug addicts and prostitutes and your young men are drug addicts as well. Doesn't say much about the future for a county losing so many jobs LMAO! Even the truck drivers know, if you want to purchase a lady to do anything you like to, then go to Austin. If you can handle the smell, that is. How do we fix it? Poison the water supply and start over.

Not everyone is Scott County is trashy. You just don't see us that often because we don't walk the streets and keep to ourselves. Oh and we are actually out there making a real living for ourselves instead of sitting around complaining about how our lives are so hard.

I am not sure if Austin is worse than anywhere else, but it is very out-in-the-open here. Most people keep thier drug use private, not here. I agree we need some kind of center here in town that caters to the younger generation. The people who are wasting thier lives on the street are probably beyond help, but we could help thier kids not to turn out like them. The school does a good job with free lunches in the summer. If we could add a computer cafe with WII games for activities....anything to get them out of an environment where they will repeat thier parents problems.
