We are all guilty, we all complane about something but we never do anything, well almost everbody. The first thing we need to do is get a start, do something, anything, go outside pick up a piece of paper or trash and if we do, mabey we can say Hi to our neighbors and find them doing the same. We got to start some way.

Everyone needs to have a little pride in their home and keep it and the area around it clean. Why should volunteers clean up other peoples trash?? I understand helping the elderly, they have a good reason to need help, but most of it is due to lazy trashy people. The city needs to have a little pride too, for example the home at the corner of Hendrix and Murphy, what a discrace, looks like that should of been condemned a long time ago. The best part is they work for the city. City employees don't even have any pride. Look at the home out on N. 59 about 2.5 miles on the west side, what a rat hole, I beleive the people work at CCJC. Everyone needs to quit living so trashy and take pride in your home, neighborhood and city. This statement is not to offend anyone, it is just the facts. Till next time.... GOD Bless

I have been picking up after people for as long as i have lived in Brazil, thats many years, and I'm still at it, hasn't let up any, people are dirty and careless, but now I don't want to read any complaints from anyone that wasn't willing to pitch in, the moral to this story is, the problems in Brazil are much deeper than all the junk cluttering the streets !!!!!!!!!!!!!

I have to say that's an extremely rude comment from Inqtono15. First off, whoever owns that house, it sounds to me like it's out of town anyway and they can live however they want to. That is under the county jurisdiction and the city has limited jurisidiction in that area. Also, the CCJC is a county government ran facility and the city has no say so with that facility. I'm sorry, but do they teach government at our local high school. People learn about your government and who runs what.

This was a great project. We live in a community with such great volunteers. They don't "have" to do anything, they "want" to do things. People need to have that attitude and maybe this city would become something more than it is.

We need to look at growth, expansion, and getting a bigger tax base. This project would have beautified the city up a little and help attract people and businesses to this fine city.

I hope that we all can reschedule this event. The people of this town must not give up. It is something that we must do if all possible, even only to boost our moral and our self respect.

Good place for some community service for our Welfare Recipients to give a little back to the community. Sign up sheets will be posted at the Villages next time.

Many cities and towns are not as clean as Brazil, but Brazil has some area's that need attention, mabey we could get more people to help. We need to find the worst area's to concentrate on, and then get organized and get the job done. Mabey doing a whole ward is to much for the people to do, but we must get something going.

I have a question to the comments made by Crimonology08 of "We need to look at growth, expansion, and getting a bigger tax base. This project would have beautified the city up a little and help attract people and businesses to this fine city." I have heard similar remarks made at times by other, yet they have never been able to answer the question I am about to pose.

That question is why should we look to grow or expand if we like living in the city at its present size and do not wish to live in a larger city? Those that wish to live in a larger city, well, they can always move to one. Brazil has its problems, but not the same ones as a city the size of Bloomington, Indianapolis, and Terre Haute. I, for one, choose to live in a smaller city with its smaller problems and not have to worry about "big city" problems!
