WTF Sandusky


I used to live downtown within walking distance to Daly's. I spent a lot of nights "closing the bar" and walked home. I do not recall as many fights, stabbings, or police calls back then. Something is wrong with the new "drinkers". Glad I am not part of that crowd anymore.


until I looked at the paycheck that said $4481, I didn't believe ...that...my friend woz actualy bringing in money parttime at there computar.. there friend brother has done this for under 6 months and just now paid for the mortgage on their condo and got a gorgeous Lotus Elan. blog link http://goo.gl/f6e95V

The common denominator usually seems to be Daly's. Let's close it down!


You cannot punish the establishment because of actions of the patrons. It that was the case the catholic church would have been closed a long time ago for committing mass genocides.


The establishment's stock in trade is an atmosphere - anyone can put a beer in front of a customer, but bar patrons are very partisan about their watering holes. If a bar consistently attracts an undesirable element, the management bears some blame for that.


Closing Daly's down will not solve anything. The people causing the problem will just move elsewhere.

Nothing good ever happens after midnight...

Raoul....I've said the same thing for years, and I mean YEARS. Used to tell kids, young and old, if you're out after midnight you better be indoors at a very familiar place like that of a close friend or family member. And downtown Sandusky sure doesn't come into those categories. Frankly, I'm nervous about various parking areas down there even at 9:00 PM. but it's not just Sandusky. It's the "times". Lots of "tough guys" out there.

I see the news is back to usual!


If people would get out of this anything goes, do whatever you want, mindset and get back to having some respect and morals, doing what's right instead of whatever pops into their mind, we wouldn't have all this craziness going on every day. Even the everyday language is disrespectful to those of us who try to stay away from that. Completely void of respect for life or who they insult or hurt.


My feelings exactly kingd, if more kids got their butts spanked like we did then maybe the u.s.a. wouldn't be going to pot. I was spanked when little and so were my kids and they don't run around killing or injuring people over some stupid little thing. Kids and that includes 25 and under have no respect for anything now days. Took priority out of the hands of parents and now it's starting to take its toll. Not saying abuse your children, just show them who is the authority.


My wife spanked me last night

It is going to cost You on black Friday!


Black Friday nothing, she's out there now !


My wife spanked me last night




Maybe you don't see the respectful, hardworking, and smart young people because you are focused only on the "bad ones." There are plenty of great kids out there and I feel that different generations and age groups can work together and help each other get through a depressing economy and a world that isn't always pretty. Respect can't be pounded into anyone. It has to be mutually earned.


I agree ladyc, but the kids these days really do think they know everything and when you try to tell them anything you know nothing. There are some wonderful kids out there


Yep, sometimes they find it out for themselves later...I wish they weren't faced with the hard addicting drugs and the lack of jobs. Some of them may be annoying, but their future is real shaky right now.


Minus the drugs, i have one myself, it really stinks, gotta give them tough love when all else fails, just can't give up on them
