CC Schools beg to city! No help for them!

Um, take a look at the inmate list at Calloway county jail. Just about all the young people, from this area, that are behind bars graduated from Murray high. How many times were there drug busts at Murray high? Multiple !!! Know that for a fact. Students from Murray stealing from there school, not Calloway, Murray. So, though I graduated from Murray, your comments are stupid. There's troubled kids at all schools but when you figure the size of Murray I think their statistics are considerably higher than the average school. On top of all this, how about the hundreds of thousands misd stole from Calloway county school system ? Guess you can't expect a lot from your students when the entire school system gets caught for theft !!!  (May 10, 2013 | post #7)

Walter's pharmacy prom party

I agree with your comment. Like I said earlier I have explained to my kids why me or their father don't drink. However, once they reach nineteen you can't control all of their choices. I wish they could see things thru my years of experience but no matter how much you explain the reasons not to do something doesn't mean they're not going to do it anyhow. I just want them safe. I don't feel by telling them to call me for a ride if they're intoxicated is condoning their consumption of alcohol. I don't agree with underage drinking however I dislike drunk driving more. So I choose the lesser of two evils. I do thank you for your respectful response without using foul language and smart comments that many have made. It's a serious issue. We all see solutions from a different perspective. And I truly respect your comment and opinion.  (May 7, 2013 | post #19)

Walter's pharmacy prom party

To each there own. I'm not going out and buying alcohol for my child by no means but I've always told them should they be in a situation where they need a ride home to call me. I also told them there would be no discussion that night but the next morning the situation would be addressed. I have been called twice and picked them up both times. They received their punishment the following day. I would much rather my child call me then attempt to drive home because they're scared to call. The university is made up of fifty percent or more of underage students that drink nightly. Yet it is stereotyped because they're at a fraternity or sorority the same social rules don't apply. My child has never seen alcohol in my home or seen me ever take a drink of alcohol yet they know plenty about it. I'd rather my child never drink but at their age I can't make their choices for them. And I've seen plenty of adults that have little sense of reasoning and impulse control under the influence, so don't stop at teens. Alcohol has the same affect on many adults. I'm assuming your a "social drinker" sitting on your high horse and being so judgmental. Your childish remarks really didn't deserve a reply but I figured what the heck, my older children have turned out well and I expect the same from my youngest. I've always attempted to have open communication with my children. I owe no one an explanation other than the ones I love. I'm not trying to convince anyone to change their parenting decisions if they're comfortable with them. My child is out of high school and I know nothing of this party at the Walters house. What I do know is its not my place to judge their parenting decisions.  (May 7, 2013 | post #13)

A responsible parent knows their child is going to do things that we may or may not agree with. However that's part of growing up. Would I rather my teen be at a home drinking where I know they won't be killed driving around town? Absolutely. I don't even drink but I'm not blind to what happens at prom and graduation. I was a teenager once. I think a responsible adult wants their child safe and not behind the wheel while intoxicated or in a vehicle where others are intoxicated. We each parent differently, but don't judge others on their parenting abilities because you see things differently.  (May 7, 2013 | post #11)

Atleast there were adults there hopefully taking away all keys at the door. It is what it is. Kids are going to party and drink at prom and graduation and I would much rather mine be where there are some responsible adults that aren't drinking then at a party where they all do as they please and drive drunk when leaving.  (May 6, 2013 | post #5)

bullies at CALLOWAY

The original post did use minors' names. Opens them up to major civil and criminal prosecution. The parents of the two named children should pursue this legally. Putting adult names is bad enough, no excuse to use childrens !!! Regardless of the situation !  (May 4, 2013 | post #9)

Abortion clinic in Murray?

Thank you !! The baby is very much alive and very much a human with a soul. We all make mistakes. We all live with those mistakes. You can bless another family with this child. I understand you are young and admire that you realize your not ready to be a parent but you can make something good come from this situation. There are so many that want a child that can't conceive. Believe me I understand a conservative family but I think your family may be more understanding than you think. Your parents were young once as well. Should you choose to give your baby up for adoption then it can be set up where the adopting parents take the baby immediately. Your parents never have to see the child, nor do you. Thus your worry about the baby being biracial wont be an issue that your parents need to know about. But don't underestimate your parents. My child had a baby out of wedlock five months ago, she is 22, and that child is the biggest blessing in mine, my husbands and her life. The father is less than desirable, because of his choices in life, but it doesn't change the love I have for my grandson in the slightest. Truly think thru things. I hate to see you live with hurt and regret the rest of your life.  (Apr 30, 2013 | post #12)

mcch rumor of another paycut

Thank god !!! Someone sees it for what it is !! I know there are people disabled, I am one of them. I have had two back surgerys, still have four ruptured discs, a sciatic nerve that won't stop its devastation to my life. I can't drive twenty miles without my hands going completely numb due to the irreversible nerve damage yet I am still fighting for my disability. A wonderful neurosurgeon has found me 100% disabled as well as my regular doctor and neurologist. I worked all my life as a nurse. Worked some job since I was 15 years old. I get denied because I'm 44 years old and have an education. Meanwhile I have four cousins younger than me that have been receiving disability for the past ten years because they are drug addicts. I had one cousin receive over 40,000 in back pay and it was shot in her arms within two months. Meanwhile having a disabled daughter at home that is totally neglected. My cousins have never worked a day I their life. Yet they draw two checks plus one on her daughter , who is deserving of it, just needs a different guardian over it. By the first week of the month the money, totaling over 2,500 is gone on drugs. Her daughter had clothes with holes in them and shoes three sides to small for her crippled feet. I forgot to add her husband works a carpentry job, subs, and brings home $1500 a week cash that he hands to her to support her habit. Gets better. They draw over $700 a month In foodstamps which they buy soda with and sell to the local country stores. They all live in eastern Kentucky. And yes I have reported all this but the system just doesn't care. They did do a well fare check on the disabled daughter after I begged them to but found bottled water in the house and the fact that they had no electric or sewage didn't make a difference. Because they had bottled water snd crackers they were considered to be providing for her. They somehow get assistance to pay utilities at times but when there is no assistance they have no electric. My concern is for the daughter. She is 19 with the mentality of a six year old. Authentically disabled. I told my husband I would do better to become an addict for a year then I could get the medical coverage I need for my surgeries. They run out of drugs and they go directly to the er using Medicaid to get more. They have even had teeth unnecessarily removed to get narcotics. Our system is totally screwed. I've worked all my life and now that I'm unable to work I'm not even entitled to the money i have paid in for all those years. Completely fed up with this whole system !!!!! Abused by so many people at the expense of those that truly deserve it !!!  (Apr 26, 2013 | post #33)

Mattress Guys of Murray Ky Next to the Apple

Bet you work or are family of the only other mattress store in Murray. How do we know those mattresses aren't the same? Business must be hurting if you've got to slander another business. Competition is good for the consumer, not so much for a merchant who had a monopoly on the product.  (Apr 5, 2013 | post #13)

Marty mc ride gymnastics

Don't know him or his gymnastics company however I find it very distasteful that he posted this. How sad and embarrassing for the kids and families. I would never let my children attend this place after his posting. May be why the majority of people do go to UKC. He has hurt his business. Heck one was for $5. Really ??? Don't know you Marty but you should really be more discreet and have gone to these parents individually. They're obviously not very past due so the child must be attending, you can't speak to the parents then ?? Very lousy business practice !!  (Mar 28, 2013 | post #4)

Wreck on Pea Ridge

I don't know this girl or the others involved in the wreck. I have family scattered all over the ridge but don't live there. But we should leave the judging to god and show some compassion and empathy for those loved ones that I'm sure are grieving beyond belief. People are so quick to judge yet its usually those living in glass houses. My prayers go to the families involved, especially the children. Regardless of the circumstances with the wreck, young lives were lost and if people don't have sympathy for that alone they should truly be ashamed and it speaks volumes about the person you are.  (Mar 27, 2013 | post #76)

child protective services failing local teens that need r...

Please don't Dana. My sons struggle just about cost me my marriage as my husband wanted him thrown out of the house. Wasn't going to happen because I knew he'd end up dead and I always held faith that my son could beat this with the right help. I found a wonderful rehab for him and during family therapy I learned I was his biggest enabler and his dad was his biggest trigger. It took us all changing. I know he struggles every day as he still lives in Murray and almost everyone he knows is involved with drugs in one form or fashion. I'm working on trying to get him to leave Murray to go to school and meet new people. Please don't give up on him. I've cried with my son, worried myself sick when he wouldn't come home for days, sit outside the jail knowing I couldn't get to him but feeling so lost I felt like I was in jail with him. In the end he knew I was always there and will continue to be. The drugs may cloud their judgement and take control of their lives but there is hope. Great people, can lose their track on life, that doesn't mean they won't find there way back. My son hit rock bottom. The judge asked him one day during court, "son what do you need?" When my son replied, "I need help, I need rehab " I think the judged teared up as much as I did. I think judge Hutchins knew after seeing him so many times that he'd have to realize he needed the help himself for it to truly work. I'm not blind. I know he can falter at any time. I'm just a lot more aware now and keep my eyes and ears open to everything. And as long as he lives with me, regardless of being 20 now, he abides by my house rules. I had to see I was at fault for my actions as well. Ill pray for you and your son. Keep your head up !!  (Mar 24, 2013 | post #44)
