The State Hospital blds. being razed are not only rife w/ asbestos but are also considered too costly to bring up to electrical/plumbing, etc. codes for modern uses. The hilltop wooded areas being cleared are between - and including - the rear areas of Hardees and German American. Interesting: Not a speck of print/pictures about either in Madison Courier. Former publisher would have ran - at least - a photo w/ caption! Pass The Peace And Peace Be With You.

To no, So if one building is full of asbestos, I think it's safe to assume that all the buildings are also since they were built around the same time period. There are people working and living in these buildings as we speak.

The buildings in State hospital are being torn down because they full of asbestos and not fit for people to be inside, so why in the world would they be turned into housing.

I noted yesterday that there is a large clearing out of the forest area happening behind the area of Rally's, Hardee's, etc. The person I spoke with said they heard the owner was told to clear the land to keep the homeless from camping there. She said the owner didn't want to, and that there were no plans for the land at this time. This was a lovely green area and another place that could have been at least partial preserved. Another good opportunity for a north hilltop greenway, too. Why tear up this little piece of nature for no real good reason? Is this information even correct? This makes me sad.

I drove through the state hospital grounds the other day and seen where they had torn down one of the buildings. I was told they intend to tear down several others. These are wonderful old buildings and you would think, with the housing shortage the way it is, that these buildings could be put to a better use.

Bogey- I agree Wade was nothing but a mooch and the only reason the rodeo is here is because a wife of one of those so called riders has a shop in town and hubby needs some some easy money. The rodeo doesn’t bring in any real visitors that shop or dine downtown. They’re like homeless roaming from one dust pen to another not to mention how they abuse the animals spurring and shocking them. It can’t support itself so they ask for a handout from public dollars every year. Can you imagine the guy out on 250 that runs dog fights asking for donations from the public trough. People that abuse animals need arrested not given big bucks to pay for husbands hobby. But I dont mind change and agree new families have brought some good things. But not Wade and rodeo . I’d rather see people build on some of the good we have than bring in trashy events or rip off artists like Wade. The common thread between Wade and the rodeo is both are Courtney pals. Someone posted something about all the air bnbs owned by out of towners that get pace grant money. I think that’s real wrong too but I’m meeting those people donated to Courtney’s campaign .

for clarification the person posting as @bogey is not me. I didn't blame the child crimes on the newcomers. my complaint on them is their campaign to change our culture and history. MY atv complaint is they use the county roads as a dirt track . not unusual to see or hear them at 3am. All the money they bring in? they are using our money. Jerry wade as an example. The rodeo. they are now requesting money. About all festivals claim they are making money but then request public funds.

Well it’s the locals doing the molesting and protecting the pervs. Doesn’t get much worse than the police chief protecting his best buddy who hurts little boys and rapes underage girls . So let’s be clear Madison’s problems didn’t start with outsiders. Locals did that all on l own. But toss in the poverty and blocking an intestate access road , tossing out money to all the wealthier folks while ignoring addiction, hungry kids and crooked school boards has got us to where we are. I for one like the visitors and new comers coz they bring new ideas and more tax dollars. Course if we could get Cortney to quit spending and buying votes we’d be better off but I don’t know anything about dirt tracks . I’m clear on the other side. What’s going on with ATVs. I thought the only issue was those darn golf carts buzzing everywhere. I almost hit 4 old ladies on 421. I can go the area why

Being Sunday I will reflect a little.Towns change and you will gain and lose. What madison was in the 40s, 50s ,60s and 70s is now gone.Crime such as child molesting now dominate our news.About all decisions are made by people who have recently moved in. The eastern side of the county is now a dirt track for ATVs. It was once a area of small farms and horse owners.Local families who have lived in the county for years cant outbid the people from new Castle and Anderson who are here to ride ATVs and bring hordes of people to overhunt the area.Local government is mostly inept and corrupt . They have no problem lying to your face or in print. Why do people move here, say I love it and then spend the rest of their time trying to change it?
