The article basically states that Rushville is like most small towns struggling with the move from rural to urban and tax caps.

This Indpls. Star article is nothing new to most Rushville people. They've long ago realized that they don't have much to look forward to by staying in Rushville.

Keeping your head above the poverty level is about the most you can hope for in Rushville. If you've done that, consider yourself a success in Rushville.

Nothing like living in a town run by nitwits and losers. This reminds me a lot about the game king of the hill. After you made it to the top you are just the king of a pile of dirt.

Reminds me of smeer the pipe-licker. Honestly though, can not believe it created such a buzz with all the haters. It is an article covering the struggles of the small folks in the small towns of Indiana. It is what we need the folks on Capitol Street to hear!!! But hey, who would expect pipe-licker to see it that way. All he wants in life is to see Rushville fail.

We don't wanna see Rushville fail. But that's direction Rushville is headed.
Lots of lazy unmotivated people in Rushville that continually struggle until the next paycheck or the next welfare deposit. About the only motivation they have is to buy that lottery ticket before Wednesday's & Saturday's drawing.
Rushville is the land where progress was forgotten.

Tully had praise for Pavey and talked about the struggles of all small towns in the tax cap world we live in. The haters can't handle that truth so they are trying to rewrite the article. Fake Bean pipe literally has done that. The failure of fake pipe beans town of choice is an example of that. He even admits the town he likes is failing. Connersville is a good example of what the haters are trying to make Rushville into.

Fact Checker is an imbecile. No one can "praise" Mike Pavey, because he's been an abject failure just like his predecessors. You can't make a diamond out of shit.

Don't know what you do in your personal time, but Tully did praise Pavey no matter how much it pains fake bean pipe.

Still fake pipe bean has to lie to try to prove his point.....again. Tullys article was pretty fair. small towns are struggling, some more than others. Connersville would be a good example of more.

Tullys article was VERY fair. He basically just stopped short of letting us know what we already knew: the town is a stink hole. No jobs, no hope, no future.

So you agree Pavey is a hard working Mayor with good ideas? It's about time you were honest. Now we need to work on your comment that Connersville is a model city. Cities that run themselves broke and cut fire and police services should not be something you brag on.

Bean - Tully's article was fluff horseshit. It's a classic nostalgia piece about the land that time forgot. Tully glossed over the fact that Pavey has done little if anything in two years. NO JOBS OUT OF PAVEY'S GANG.

Intat is hiring. I just heard this morning of a new auto parts store doing some hiring. I am not boasting about either of these, but it appears you are lying yet again when you say "NO JOBS".

fake pipe bean is trying to pretend he is not one in the same after talking to himself on a previous post.

Best part is he is disagreeing wth himself. I wonder who will win the argument.

I am not Bean. Bean is a wannabe. Sort of like you, Crack Checker, being a wannabe for Pavey and Company.
