Re: “Fiery Response: Controversy ignites over Hill District CBA

I do not want my tax dollars spent on the Hill District. The neighborhood is in the condition it is because of the people there. When the neighborhood starts calling police when a drug dealer in selling drugs on the corner or a pimp is doing business that is when things will start to change for the better. Who in there right mind wants a business in this sort of environment? It breeds corruption in robberies, theft or street violence. The people of the hill have the duty to work with police and themselves to clean up the neighborhood to entice business into the area. Remember the businesses that were there left because of the reasons I stated. At one time the hill was the place to be and there were businesses there. But as people turned there head to crime because of a multitude of reasons, I do not want involved or they are just doing business because there is no work for us or it’s just the way it is. A neighborhood only has what it tolerates within its structure and its time the hill starts to do what is right for the Hill and not except the rest of us to do it for them. I am willing to help anyone doing all they can for themselves; I am not willing to do it for them.

Re: “History Repeating?

I do not understand why the Penguin’s owe the Hill District anything? Why are special interests the only neighborhoods that ask for money and expect it? There are no grocery stores or businesses because the owners got tired off getting robed or stolen from and everyone in the neighborhood went to the cheap store out of the neighborhood. I am tired of politicians spending tax money on everything except what it was meant for.
