When I was younger and hired unskilled employees to aid in accomplishing some sizable projects, it was the "throw-aways" that performed best.
I was not always an easy person to work for, and would often-times out-step boundaries to push the employees to be productive (because I basically could not afford to pay another person to produce less than a person).
Whereas the "good" kids would crumble and quit in response to my correction, it was society's under-class that coped with the challenge and produced surprisingly well.
They took more pride in the fact that they were actually becoming quite good in their tasks. Their self-esteem and sense of self-worth exploded to become as true team-members with a common goal taking pride in their production.
It wasn't long before I could release the tethers knowing that the newly inducted employee was capable and taking pride in their work, which allowed me to do better in the areas I needed to focus on.
Kids in general accept reprimand when they do poorly, as well as taking to heart the compliment when doing exceptionally well. By allowing a kid to try something that just might work, is a responsibility that might replace the present stringent economic and social control in the down-ward trend for Springfield.
The vacant buildings would suddenly become un-vacant. By going in a wild new direction that may at first-glance seem bizarre, just might be the one direction that saves our tiny Springfield.
New incentive; where the young adults can express themselves by creating new niches and markets, in an effort to turn the trending direction of value here in Springfield, around.
One kid might make his or her own clothes, and try his or her hand at business (free of all the profiteering legislation and stipulations which are heaped against anyone else that might otherwise go that route).
The fact is:
Void of jobs, or worse, slave-wage earning jobs that degrade and demean the worker's self-worth and creativity, ensures your house is broken into this year.
Void of self-worth and community-pride, your property is stolen, your family member is physically harmed and robbed.
Surely we can pave the direction for the children whom are the next generation?
Or do we remain on this dire path which is where the un-evolved general leadership is taking us? https://usdebtclock.org
Give the next generation a break (Even God commanded a Sabbath, a rest from the profiteering from a land).
Cease the stringent economic and social control and watch our own offspring grow and show us all an interesting something or other. Save Springfield by our creative handiwork....no legal bars allowed (they've taken more than their rightful share already).
That Doctor's office now has a unique kid or group of young adults in it that are selling ice cream without the poisons, or non-gmo home-grown greens, or glow in-the-dark frosty drinks, or featuring a new invention....NOW YOU HAVE SOMETHING TO TALK ABOUT!
And what of this Pay-rate Decline?
Why is it declining so much more rapidly than the population?
The decline of pay data is actually easily traceable, but I will not digress as the topic alone will put me on another tangent in a never-ending page.
I lived in another State prior to Ohio, the Codes Enforcement Department seemed less strict there. Whereas the Codes Enforcement Department in German Township could just as easily be painted wearing a cowboy hat perched atop a horse with his sidearm drawn

Ah just as well....there's not enough sun in Ohio for a cheap solar plant, anyway. One wind generator isn't going to cut it here either. There's some decent wind right now but all-in-all I firmly believe that to finance a one-generation self-powered homestead will consume one entire lifetime.
Ohio = more panels, more space, more wire, more charge controllers, more maintenance (and who knew it was going to snow on my panels....and then just sit there?).
I almost overlooked something; Springfield has GREAT soil if you want to grow your own food!
I would like to see my immediate community here in the German Township of Springfield Ohio come together to create a common collective of the properties for the benefit of the immediate community.
For instance, I have an acre without fences.
All of my neighbors also have about an acre without fences.
That means we all have unused, potentially profitable, yet untapped resources
(we'll call them back yards).
But what if we put up one of those quickie fences to include a portion of each of our yards?
We sign a contract with eachother that if anyone wants to drop out of the neighorhood garden program, that person need only alter the fence off their piece of the community spread.
There is no required work from any of the neighbors (we have to accept the fact that there are the elderly and sick, and that they should not be penalized by withholding wholesome and plentiful fresh food from their non-participation.
It's enough that their property is also included in the seasonal plot for all of us to enjoy).
To clarify, the simple seasonal wire fence would not be erected to keep people out, but to keep the critters away from the naturally grown food!
I believe the neighbors would MAKE time to be in that common garden!
Some would come out because it's a piece of their property in that fenced-in area, and some may want to do something different with their plot.
Others would come out for some fresh air.
And still others would come out because they never knew their immediate neighbor and want to learn more of that other person (so as to put to rest any erroneous pre-assumptions).
Some would come out because they are bored and want to walk through the garden for a pepper or stalk of asparagus, some because he or she simply loves gardening.
The neighbors would all reap the benefit of garden-fresh food at almost zero-cost....
a fence, a seed, a hoe ";-)
I believe Springfield has a decent Fire Department.
One time (true story) a plastic plant was found to be on fire, and although it was already extinguished by yours-truly, the Springfield Fire Department arrived in record-time and took extra measure to ensure that the Crow rental hadn't any remaining embers. The Springfield Fire Department created very clear, concise reports.of the incident, complete with an estimated loss statement.
They even offer free copies of the incident if requested. These guys are A+ in my opinion.
Springfield could use a better website in which to honor them.
At the time of this writing, there is a website that Springfield has, it's called https://www.springfieldohio.gov.
*update Feb 6, 2018: The website is looking better, however is it not possible to give the working class police and firemen real faces? They deserve at least that much honor. I'm not one to knock another man's work but that web page needs to be revamped. Presently they have a dismal website with what could easily pass as China's Red Army in the place labelled POLICE.
The people in the photo are wearing uniforms with a headpiece I've never noticed here. The eyes are all covered with sunglasses. Sunglasses indicate something to hide, a non-human(e) wall of resistance. But there they all are, somewhat unidentifiable. Surely we could paint a less morbid picture of our police force here. Underneath the picture of the regime-wandered warriors is another picture labelled FIRE RESCUE. At this point it becomes apparent to me that these are some canned pictures since words cover the features of the few faces in these photos. The working class robbed of identity again, just a bunch of frowning faces with glasses on. Surely we can do better than this.
I will say this though, the police dispatch appears to be much less consumed. What I mean is, when I call them I'm not rushed off of the phone like some other cities I've resided in. The reason I must call them every so often is to verify the serial numbers on some of the more questionable purchases I made with the community.
There is not a public website where the community is free to browse the items stolen and verify a purchase before its made. Would you believe not one stolen laptop, netbook, or desktop pc has ever made its way past me? In other cities, such as the one I resided in Florida, it is not uncommon to have at least ONE item come up as stolen.
Hence my opinion of the good community of Clark County Ohio.
What's stopping Springfield Ohio from discovering something, or inventing something, or producing something that cannot be found anywhere else?
No taxi, huh?
Potential need, potential market, potential income....all I need is a license.....a leased car......hmmmm......
