The county Gov't doesnt provide enough assistance to the citizens of the north end of the county. The only time the sheriffs dept. comes to the north end is to serve a warrant or for a complaint, and then it takes sometimes more than an hour for them to arrive. I think electing someone who lives in the Lyons Station area as a constable would be a worthy cause.

I to think the same way as you do. Lyons Station is ,"NO MANS LAND" Is what I have heard to many times. Getting a cop here from Larue County is a chore. This man that lived next door to me was gone to work one nite and his girlfriend was completely destroying his house. Breaking things, sounded like windows breaking and everything. I called the Larue county police and they said they would send someone out. My husband and I waited until 3 am and no police showed up. Then on so many occasions the police have been called because of people speading through Lyons Station and one morning my child was getting on the school bus when a car came flying down the road and did not see the bus. He slammed on his break and swirved to miss the bus and almost took my mailbox and my daughter out. The Larue county Sheriff's office said they would have someone out here to patrole the area every morning and afternoon. Guess what? I have not see one yet.... But when it is voting time don't think for once that they don't come here for our votes. They come here and knock on every door in Lyons Station with their promises and concerns and after they are voted in we are forgotten about once again. I honestly believe that if LaRue county can't do what they are supose to do for the Lyons Station area( that is part of LaRue county) then they should forget about us and allow us to be Nelson County instead of Larue...

Yes they sure do. Matter of fact the only ones that we CAN get out here in Lyons Station when there is an emergency is Nelson County EMS or the State Police. You hardly ever see LaRue county here..... I know for a fact that when u have an emergency Nelson County EMS is here in a blink of an eye, but they are not allowed to transport LARUE COUNTY RESIDANTS TO THE EMERGENCY ROOM without a EMS worker from Larue county is in the ambulance with us. I waited on the side of the road in a Nelson county ambulance for 25 minutes waiting on Larue county to catch up with us and one worker get in the ambulance before getting my son to the hospital. He could have died waiting on the side of the road for LaRue county....

Look, I believe that we all know that most people who live in Lyons Station are living there fully aware of the fact that the 'law' is seldom around. So you can't have it both ways. You can't live in a place that is know for being the place to go if you are avoiding the law, yet bitch because the law is at a distance. MOVE! If you are truly concerned about your well-being, get the hell out of Lyons Station! And as for the campaigning that goes on during election time, you would all bitch if they didn't knock on your doors. They have certainly been able to get some drugs off the streets in this area. I haven't seen a thread started about that.

Look, When I moved here, I moved here for personal reasons, not because I am running from the law or because I knew that the law was hardly ever around here. Matter of fact I have a clean record so I don't have a reason to run from the law. You make it sound like everyone that lives in Lyons Station is a criminal or running from the law. There are elderly people that live here and children to just like Hodgenville. So not everyone who lives here are running from the law. Yes, I will admit that there are some people here that do live here in Lyons Station because the law hardly ever comes around here. But there are also alot of people that live here because they have no choice or because normaly it is a quit place to live.(Some parts of it) What I am saying is when the law is needed here they should be here in a certain time limit. Lyons Station has to be taken care of just like Hodgenville. If they want to have Lyons Station as LaRue county then they should do their jobs. Someone could be murdered and it would take the law 3 hours to get here or they won't show up at all. I am not on here to fight with you or anyone else for that matter but everyone has their own thoughts and mine is that LaRue county police does not do their jobs very well.

BBB you are right. Both the constable and deputy sheriff lived here in Lyons Station a long time ago but times have change. Just like everything else has. Honestly, I don't mind living here. Where I live it is pretty quite. Now that the next door neighbors moved..lol.. We are surounded by older couples and families and it is nice, but when You own your home and with the way the economy is right now people can't afford to sell their homes and move. I know I can't at this time. I just don't care for the way people fly down through here. It is dangerous. Not only for the kids that live in Lyons Station but for the person who is driving also. These roads are not a straight strech they are curvy as hell.lol... But LaRue County should help here as they do in Hodgenville. Yes, There are some bad people here but just because they don't call on the police and ambulances for help doesn't mean that everyone feels that way. Shit happens and when people need the help of a officer or ambulance they should get here. I don't know, I guess it is safe to say that the help people need when it is an emergency is just as screwed up as the whole world at this point.

Okay, first of all, I have the right to my opinion just as you do. And my opinion has been stated.
If you live in an area where the law isn't present, there is obviously going to be more crime. Everything from speeding to drugs to murders. When you live in an area where you can be at a beer joint in 5 minutes, there are going to be vehicles on the road operated by intoxicated drivers. When you live in an area where you can call an ambulance and it takes a long enough period for someone with a serious condition to maybe DIE, maybe you should move. That is just my opinion. If I was raising children, I certainly would do everything in my power to NOT raise them in Lyons Station. That too, is simply my opinion. And as for the man who had the girlfriend that was trashing his house, well, if you are crazy enough to associate with people who are crazy enough to tear your shit up......... well, maybe you get the point. That too, is my opinion. My point is, if you look at the big picture and if you are raising children, why for God's sake would you live there? Again, my opinion.

i guess i am staying on the fence on this one. my opinion is yes Lyons Station could use more patrol but who's gonna pay for it??? we already bitch about our taxes as it is. Also if someone feels this strongly about something them I think they should voice thier opinion to ppl who could change things. Maybe when u call and need help Hodgenville police and/or EMS are wrapped up taking care of an elderly person who has had a heart attack or someother type of emergency and cant respond. then they put in a call to Nelson Co. I am not defending anyone just saying maybe ur emergencies arent the only ones they have that day! And someone's grandmother is just as important as ur son and more important then ur neighbors house being trashed. I do agree about the speeders but (what area doesnt have them)thats what happens when ppl get boozed up. they become ten foot tall and bullet proof with wings. lol

You both are right. I am not disagreeing with either one, but really if you think about it no matter where you live anymore it is at some point dangerous.

(Okay Now) Trust me I do not like the ideal that there are beer joints 5 minutes away, but there is nothing that I can do about that. But the Nelson County police patrole that area like crazy over the weekends, but they are not allowed to follow or chase a person once they get across that LaRue county line, and by the time the LaRue county police get here that person is long gone. I am not on here to argue with anyone but to be honest there are personal reasons that keep me here in Lyons Station, not to mention right now wouldn't be the best of time to try and sell a home...lol... Yes, I get your point about the guy with the crazy girlfriend, but me personaly, if I was at work and someone was trashing my house and breaking things to where it is disturbing the neighbors who have a new born baby I would expect for them to call the law also. Not only is it because the person is destroying my house but because they are disturbing the piece. But I am like you that is just my opinion. I know that Lyons Station is not the perfect place to raise your children but when there is nothing that you can do at this momant in time to be able to move then there is nothing that you can do. I mean unless you have millions of dollars....lol.. and that is something I do not have... Right now I just grin and bare it. I make sure that I do everything in my power to make my children safe. I have went from fences, house alarms, and everything else. My children don't even go outside unless I am with them at all times. But it would be nice to have the police patrole here more often and maybe the ones that are the trouble makers would get the hint that we would be patroled more often and then Lyons Station would become at least a half decent place to live.... But that is like wishing in one hand and well you know the rest.lol...

(curious) I have stated my strong feelings on the matter to many times to the sheriff, to Terry and everything. They keep telling me that they will have more patroles going on here, but still nothing. I have run my mouth to them so much that now they know me by name....lol... it really does no good anymore. Like I told (okay now) i just grin and bare it for now, but trust me when I know that I can sell and move I am gone..... I understand what you are saying no my son is not the only one that needed help that day, but when Nelson county calls Larue county and tells them the emergency if they were that rapped up they could have at least gave Nelson county the permision to transport us to the hospital instead of telling them that have to pull over and wait for a LaRue county EMS to get there first. I mean how would they cover up letting a 1 and a half year old child die because they can not give the ok to transport a LaRue county residant to the emergency room in a Nelson county ambulance. That day I blamed both LaRue and Nelson county...

My blinders are off. And I am well aware of the crackhouses in Hodgenville. But, notice the teeth decaying and missing in the mouths of at least a third of the population in Lyons Station. However, I would agree that since I do not have blinders on..... it is obvious that marijuana is the drug of choice in that area. I would also think that it would only make since that there are less drug busts in Lyons Station because there is less of a presence of law enforcement. That one is pretty much common sense. And as far as the comment about speeding goes on everywhere.... of course it does. However, I would suggest to you that the majority of people breaking the speed limit in Lyons Station do not have insurance and many do not even have a license. The majority of the population are living in a world of their own, if you know what I mean. Many of them have done prison time. They are "A DIFFERENT BREED". Again, this is merely my opinion.

Ok I have read enough of what you have to say. I was not going to get on here and fuss and fight with you or anyone else, but I have read what you wrote and you are just asking for someone to come on here and fuss back with you. I am about like curious citizen you seem to know an awful lot about Lyons Station. So you that only tells me that either you do live here and to scared to admit it or you come here to the beer joints that you complain about and to buy your shit. Like I said before I agree with you that there are alot of messed up people that live here, but not all of us are messed up and I differantly don't like you calling us a differant breed. What the hell do you think you are the queen of fucking sheba? Do you think your shit don't stink or something. I don't really care who you are or what you think but I will tell you this much.... I do live here and so do my children. We are not druggies, nor do we live nasty or visit the damn beer joints. Like I said I have a clean record never have I ever been in trouble with the law. I do not do drugs. I do not drink. Matter of fact none of that shit is allowed at my home or in front of my children. I do own my own car and I do have tags and insurance on it. I pay my bills just like I am supose to. I do not have rotten teeth. I care about myself and my family. So don't come on here thinking that you know it all about everyone in Lyons Station because appartently you do not. I live here because I do not have a choise at this time and my husbands family live in Lyons Station also they do not do all the things you say that Lyons Station people do. So don't come on here making your opinion about all of Lyons Station usless you know for a fact that all of us that live here are druggies and so forth and so on.

I did not say that you were all druggies. My statement, though it is an opinion, is pretty close to very accurate. I do know many things about the area in which you live. I guess the difference between me an you would be, if I lived in Lyons Station, I would move. If I had a home in Lyons Station, I would sell it. If I had children in Lyons Station, I would get them out! No matter what price my home brought or even if I had to rent it out! I would not expose my children to that lifestyle without resisting! I mean, I know that it is inevitable that they are going to be introduced to it, but my children would not know that their parents live in the midst of it. Again, that's me, not you. When I want to change things, I do not wait for other people to make the changes for me. I do it myself. Your children will be elderly by the time Lyons Station is a "clean and safe" community........ if ever! I do not understand why people bitch about their circumstances, instead of changing them. You say you have no choice, I say that I do have a choice. I may choose where I live and where I raise my chilren. My life is only what I make of it. That is a fact..... not an opinion.

And as for the comment about ignoring the problem like a leaking roof. Well, if I was living in a home with a leaking roof...... I would fix it. Though I do not think that you can campare the two situations. You see, a leaking roof on your home is completely in your control. And it's a pretty "easy fix". A community filled with drugs and alcohol is not in the control of one person. And seeing that the alcohol is sold at your closest grocery store, you are going to continually be surrounded by drunks. And since that community is also in an area with virtually no law enforcement, there are always going to rogues, scoundrels, thieves, etc. Should you ignore the situation? Of course not. Should you raise your children there? My opinion would be....NEVER!

Yes, I have said many of times already Lyons Station is not the most perfect place to live because of the beer joints and drugs, but in my opinion every where you go you are going to find drugs and beer. If the county you live in is a dry county they all come here to New Haven and get it and take it back to Hodgenville, E-town where ever. I know for a fact if people can't find the stuff in Hodgenville they go else where to get it. Takes no fool to figure that one out. Yes, Lyons Station is not the perfect place to raise children because of the drugs and shit, but when you don't allow the stuff around your children then how are you exposes them to it? It might go down the road or be in New Haven but if it is not on your property and in the same house as the children then your not completely exposing them to it. Now if you are taking your children into the beer joints and you are doing the drugs or even allowing people to do drugs right in front of your children then that is a differant story. That's when Social Services need to do their jobs and step in. That is where you and I are differant. You think just because a person lives in Lyons Station then they are either doing the drugs and drinking and living a shitty lifestyle. Or they should move because they are endangering their child/children. I do not have to give you the low down about my life but I will. The part of Lyons Station that I live in is very quite most of the time. I would say 98.9% of the time. The part that I live in is very clean and well taken care of. I am surounded by elderly people who are very nice and respecting. My children love them all and my children know from right and wrong. They know that drugs are around no matter where you go. They know that some people don't care enough about children to slow down going down the road. I explain to my children about everything good and bad in this God forsaken world. To make a long story short if you are a good parent and you love yourself and your children then really it doesn't matter where you live as long as you are making sure that your children come first and that they are well taken care of and raised right. Now that is my opinion. You can live in hell with the Devil and bad people all around and everything, but as long as you bring your child up knowing what is right and what is wrong and that not everyone in this world is bad then they will grow up and pass along their knowledge of it all to their children. But if you raise your children in a home with no love, drugs and all that then maybe they will be just like you or they could even look at you and say,"i WILL NOT BE LIKE MY PARENTS" and they grow into adults with everything in life their hearts desire. Where you live does not make you who you are or who you become. You are who makes your life what you want it to be. There fore I will stay right where I am until I see fit that I need to move, and peoples opinions like yours goes and one ear and out the other because I know what type of person I am down deep inside. My only opinion is this. We pay taxes just like you. We are a part of LaRue county whether you or the county likes it. We desearve all the protection that you and everyone else has. We do not desearve to be treated like shit just because of all the other assholes in Lyons Station that don't care about thier lives or their childrens lives. Think about it!!!!!

YOUR WORDS-
You think just because a person lives in Lyons Station then they are either doing the drugs and drinking and living a shitty lifestyle.

I never said that. Along with many of the other things that you perception of my words has distorted.

This has seriously become like "beating a dead horse". If you like where you live...... wonderful. If you are complaining about things that you can't change....... it is pointless.
Just as I can't change how you perceive my opinion to be one of which makes sense...... I will not respond again. It is pointless. My opinion has been stated, and I believe it to be shared by many others.

You are sort of proving my point about the "of a diferent breed" statement.

just get a life ok. I did not come to this topix to fight with you or to be told I was a differant breed. Because the only thing you are is a wannabe know it all who thinks her shit don't stink. You can not tell people how to live their life or where they should and should not live. You also should not judge people just becasue of where they live. I think you are just childish as hell, and you think everyone is supose to listen and bow down to what you have to say. I am just stating that LaRue county police need to do their jobs and that is a fact.
