Worthington has lost some of its luster

After returning to Worthington, I would like express my disgust with the current situation of the town. For 16 years in the military, I have been returning home to a town that I grew up in and now is less and less inviting to come to as time goes on.

After returning to Worthington, I would like express my disgust with the current situation of the town.

For 16 years in the military, I have been returning home to a town that I grew up in and now is less and less inviting to come to as time goes on. The main reason that Worthington is now a town I have no desire to return to is because of companies like Monfort or Swift and WalMart -- whatever they are called now. These companies are the main demise of a town once so enjoyable to visit.

The old Mom and Pop stores on Main Street, or the mall that used to once flourish prior to the influx of criminals and illegal aliens, has now all but gone away. I believe there are some good people that have moved to Worthington from other countries, but, for the most part, the majority that has come to town destroyed our once-beloved city.

Students are being bused to other cities just to get away from the local school in Worthington because of crime, and families are moving left and right whose families once had a rich tradition in Worthington.

Just thought I would put my thoughts in on how the city of Worthington is no longer a town with a rich tradition and loved like it used to be. I hope the packing plants and Wal-Mart are ashamed of themselves for destroying beautiful city. You are the culprit and the ones to blame.
